Where Does Koi
CBD Source Its Hemp?
According to Koi CBD’s customer service
team and videos on its YouTube channel, the company sources all of its hemp
from Colorado, Kentucky, and Oklahoma.

know that its hemp is free of pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, and other
harmful contaminants. This is a huge plus.

CBD tinctures that can be taken sublingually. They come in six distinct
flavors, two bottle sizes, and six different CBD strengths. Koi’s website
classifies these tinctures as full-spectrum, yet they have 0% THC — so it’s
more appropriate to call them broad-spectrum.
- Natural (Unflavored)
Tinctures are one of Koi’s most popular products because they’re made with real ingredients like coconut oil and natural flavor extracts. Also, cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, CBN, CBG, and hemp plant terpenes, contribute to the entourage effect.

lotion infused with CBD hemp extract. With 200 mg of CBD per 125 mL bottle, the

technique to make its gummies. It mixes and rolls CBD extract into the gummies
three times, as opposed to spraying on CBD extract as other companies do.
This technique helps to distribute CBD
evenly throughout the entire gummy.
Koi CBD tropical gummies come in a
regular or sour option and each bag contains three flavors:

THC and contaminants like heavy metals and pesticides.

many different flavors and concentrations. Plus, the flavors are distinct and
Then there are the CBD sour and regular
gummies, the topical lotion and balm, both in standard and travel sizes.
Finally, Koi CBD has a pet spray, and bacon-flavored pet chews.
2. Uses Local,
The company sources organic hemp from
farms in the United States. Koi CBD is in the process of obtaining organic
certification, but currently, it follows organic farming practices.
Based on its third-party lab testing
results we can say its products are free of pesticides, residual solvents,
heavy metals, and other foreign materials and contaminants.
However, given the high cost and lengthy
process involved in hemp certification, we still give Koi CBD credit for
sourcing high-quality hemp from local U.S farms.
Innovative & Unique Products
Koi CBD has two products that meet the
definition of innovation — the Koi
Naturals CBD Spray for Pets and the Koi CBD Tropical Fruit Gummies.
The pet spray sets itself apart in the
CBD for pets niche because its potency is higher than many other pet products
currently on the market. Also, its application is unique and easy to use.
Secondly, the CBD soft chew gummies are
made by mixing and rolling Koi’s CBD blend into the gummies three times. By
using the mix and roll method, Koi CBD attempts to give a more even and
consistent application of CBD in every gummy.
Where Could Koi
1. No Full or Broad-Spectrum Vape
One of the major downsides about Koi
CBD’s vape juices is that none of them are full-spectrum or broad-spectrum.
Since all of Koi’s vape juices and e-liquids are made with CBD isolate,
consumers miss out on the coveted entourage effect.
2. Need to Update
Some of the third-party test results on
Koi CBD’s website are outdated. The website shows a few lab reports from 2018,
the time period before the company started performing a full panel of tests on
all its products.
Additionally, not all lab reports are
available on the company’s site. Although the company can send results when
asked, it’s a more efficient business practice to have them posted publicly.
The safety and usage information for Koi
CBD products is clearly listed on the company’s website under the product page
in careful detail.
Yet, when it comes to third-party
testing, uniformity was lacking. Reports for certain items were missing, while
others were severely outdated. Then there are reports in excellent standing,
showing information that matched what Koi CBD claimed on its site.
From our review, the terpene lab reports
contained some of the most glaring discrepancies. One of Koi CBD’s biggest
selling points is having ‘nearly’ full-spectrum products.
What makes them ‘nearly’ full-spectrum is
the high levels of terpene and cannabinoid content. If lab reports show low or
zero terpene content, the quality and efficacy of the product suffers. Plus,
consumers get less than what’s advertised.
Fortunately, all other test results
looked great. Reports showed the absence of pesticides, solvents, heavy metals,
microbials, and more. Also, the cannabinoid content matched the potency levels
on the product labels.
This is what a full panel of CBD tests
- Cannabinoid profile
- Terpenes profile
- Residual solvents analysis
- Pesticides analysis
- Microbial impurities analysis
- Heavy metals analysis
- Mycotoxins analysis
Shipping & Return Policy
Koi CBD doesn’t ship internationally, but
it ships to all 50 states in the U.S. Also, it has a distributor based in
Canada that carries some Koi CBD products.
Free shipping is available for U.S.
orders greater than $35. Most shipments qualify because the majority of Koi
CBD’s products are at least $30 or more. The average delivery time is 3 to 5
business days from the date the order is placed.

your order within 30 days from the purchase date to receive a refund. Customers
are responsible for shipping costs.
Final Verdict: A
Diverse Range of Products Made With High-Quality Hemp
Koi CBD is a reputable and well-reviewed
brand with good quality CBD products. The company checks off most items on the
essential CBD product list and even has some forward-thinking options. It also
puts a strong emphasis on flavor, potency, and size variety for its tinctures,
gummies, and e-liquids.
Everything is made from organically grown
hemp and are manufactured in an ISO certified lab, undergo CO2 extraction, and
are third-party tested before being sold.
Koi is dedicated to creating 100% THC
free products, which makes them available to a wide group of people.
Overall, we love Koi CBD as a whole — it
provides high-quality CBD products at a reasonable price. We definitely
recommend buying its gummies or pet products for items that are a cut above the
