Phoria Review

Phoria is a natural wellness CBD company — sister company to vape juice brand, Cannavape. Its catalog consists of high strength salves, lotions and massage oils, tinctures, and capsules.

If you’re looking for a high potency CBD salve, we recommend Phoria — with 35.33 mg/g of CBD at an excellent value.

Another product worth looking at is the build your own tincture formula. Phoria offers some carrier oils we haven’t come across on the CBD market, and for the price tag, we think it’s worth a shot.

In this review, we’ll put Phoria under the microscope. What do they do well? Where could they improve? 

Mission/Charity 4/5

Phoria isn’t associated with any charitable organizations, but we still think it delivers on its mission to produce potent CBD products using the best technologies in the industry.

The company’s product lineup is a clear reflection of this — potent topicals and unique tincture blends that highlight full-spectrum nano-emulsion CBD.

Hemp Source 4/5

These products are made with industrial hemp crops, grown and processed in the San Luis Valley, Colorado. 

Phoria receives a 4 out of 5 in this department due to the lack of organic certification. While it does promise to use organic growing practices, Phoria wasn’t able to provide a certificate to substantiate this claim.

Product Range 4/5

While Phoria may not have a massive product range, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from in the three product categories — topicals, capsules, and tinctures.

We especially love the option to design your own CBD tincture by selecting the potency, oil, and flavoring. It makes experimenting with strengths and carrier oil bases a breeze when you can get all your oils from one company.

Safety 4/5

Phoria claims that all its products are lab tested for heavy metals, solvents, and microbial contamination. However, we were unable to get ahold of these results.

You can never be too careful when shopping for CBD — there are plenty of dodgy companies out there looking to make a quick buck by cutting corners at the expense of its products safety.

Customer Service 4/5

Phoria offers pretty standard customer service. If you’re unhappy with your order, you’ve got 14 days to contact the team and request for a refund or exchange, as long as the product is unopened.

We’re docking a point here because Phoria has been quite unresponsive to our inquiries regarding its Certificate of Analysis for the contamination reports.

Phoria Company Review

Article By
Katrina Lubiano , posted 8 months ago

To remain relevant in a sea of CBD oil companies, brands need to produce high-quality products, offer competitive prices, and innovate constantly.

In less than a decade, we’ve seen many new ways to consume cannabis products — vape juices, salves, massage oils, formulated capsules, beverage mixes, gummies, and so much more.

In this company review, we’ll be looking at a Colorado-based company called Phoria that specializes in the production of full-spectrum CBD topicals, capsules, and tinctures.

We’ll explore exactly what Phoria has to offer and how they compare to the competition.

Here’s a spoiler — Phoria is one of the best we’ve come across when it comes to high strength topical CBD, and we’re big fans of its customizable tinctures.

In this in-depth company review, we’ll get into the company’s mission, its product line, and how you can get a hold of Phoria products for yourself.

Let’s get into it.

About the Company: Phoria

Phoria is the sister company of Cannavape — a company that specializes in premium sub-ohm vape juices. Both companies use industrial hemp crops grown and processed in their home state of Colorado.

Phoria doesn’t offer any vape products but instead, markets itself as a natural wellness brand. Its catalog consists of gentler uses of CBD extracts via gel capsules, tinctures, and topical CBD made with full-spectrum extracts for a more holistic approach to CBD supplementation to heal inside and out.

What Is Phoria’s Mission?

Phoria is committed to creating potent natural wellness products using the best technologies in the CBD industry.

We like to support brands that align their business mission with charitable organizations, but we couldn’t find any that Phoria associates with. This isn’t necessarily a complete deal-breaker for us, as long as the brand delivers on its mission.

Phoria has some of the most potent CBD topical formulas on the market, uses full-spectrum CBD extracts, and offers unconventional carrier oils for its tinctures — all at an affordable cost to customers.

Where Does Phoria Source Its Hemp?

Phoria uses industrial hemp from the San Luis Valley in Colorado — the top hemp producing state in the US — growing 12,000 acres of industrial hemp in 2019!

This is convenient because Phoria is headquartered at the American epicenter of it all. Colorado is known for its progressive cannabis culture, having legalized recreational marijuana use all the way back in 2014.

Today, Colorado remains at the forefront of hemp agriculture, taking pride in its world-renowned growing and processing practices.

1. CBD Topicals

A) Phoria CBD Salve

Salves are herbal-infused oils mixed into beeswax. In traditional herbal medicine, salves are used to treat minor skin irritations such as burns, rashes, splinters, boils — or anything else affecting the skin and connective tissue below. 

Phoria CBD Salves have one of the highest CBD concentrations we’ve seen on the market, containing 2000 mg of CBD in a 60 mL tin container.

On top of being one of the strongest salves on the market, they ring in at an excellent value, priced at $49.99 — that’s $0.02 per mg of CBD (the average lies between $0.26 – $0.36)!

Phoria keeps this recipe simple — hemp seed oil, jojoba oil, organic beeswax, shea butter, nano-emulsified full-spectrum CBD oil, and a blend of essential oils for fragrance and complementary therapeutic effects. 

There are five Phoria salve blends:

  1. Healing Salve (lavender, myrrh, grapefruit)
  2. Inflammation Salve (lemongrass, frankincense, thyme)
  3. Mega Pain Salve (frankincense, tangerine)
  4. Neuropathy Salve (chamomile, lavender)
  5. Relaxation Salve (peppermint, ginger)
Cost & Potency Breakdown of the CBD Salves:
Product mage Product Name Total CBD Total Cost Volume Potency (CBD per g) Price Per mg CBD
CBD Salves — 2000 mg 2000 mg $49.99 60 mL33 mg/mL $0.02

B) Phoria CBD Lotion

Phoriahas four scents in its lightweight coconut oil-based lotion suitable for daily use to hydrate, protect, and nourish the skin without leaving a greasy or sticky residue.

The CannaFreeze blend stands out the most for us. It has a mix of essential oils that add a heating and cooling sensation to the skin, thanks to its compelling blend of essential oils (cinnamon leaf, eucalyptus, ginger root, black pepper oil, peppermint, ravensara, and spearmint).

These lotions come in two sizes — 118 mL (4 oz) or 236 mL (8 oz) with 2000 mg of full-spectrum CBD in each flip-top bottle.

There are five scents to choose from in the Phoria CBD lotion collection:

  1. Unscented
  2. Tangerine
  3. Lavender
  4. CannaFreeze
  5. Peppermint
Cost & Potency Breakdown of the CBD Lotion:

CBD Lotion— 2000 mg (8 oz) 2000 mg $64.99 236 mL  (8 oz) 8.47 mg/mL $0.03

C) Phoria CBD Massage Oil

The massage oils are made from cold-pressed plant oils that maintain natural botanical benefits (vitamins, unsaturated acids, and essential oils). The oils are enriched even further with vitamin E and C to nourish and improve the texture of the skin.

It’s suitable for extremely dry skin for daily use and is an excellent massage oil. The oils are silky while still allowing enough grip for deep massage.

Like all Phoria products, the massage oil contains full-spectrum CBD with 2000 mg in every

118 mL (4 oz) flip-top bottle.

There are five scents to choose from in the Phoria massage oil collection:

  1. Lavender
  2. Lemongrass & Sage

As the name suggests, this tincture is made with cold-pressed hemp seed oil as the base and nano-emulsion full-spectrum CBD.

Nano-emulsion is a fancy way to say they’ve refined the CBD into extremely tiny particles so that it appears to dissolve in water (even though cannabinoids are naturally hydrophobic). This technique is said to increase the bioavailability of the cannabinoid in the body.

Phoria offers an excellent range of potencies at stellar prices. The stronger you go, the more value you get per milligram of CBD.

DHA or docosahexaenoic acid is an omega-3 fatty acid. We need omega-3 for brain development along with many other vital processes in the body from protein synthesis and for maintaining a healthy heart.

Now, what does that have to do with CBD tincture?

Phoria produced an offbeat tincture made with chromista oil, which is extracted from cultured algae — untouched by the sea for an unpolluted source of DHA.

The idea behind this product is that the chromista oil may provide other benefits alongside CBD supplementation with nutrient-rich omega-3 DHA without the fishy flavor. One of the only problems of getting all the benefits DHA has to offer in this product is dosing the right amount with CBD. There’s not enough DHA per serving alongside CBD (without risking the side-effects of too much CBD), but this oil still makes for an intriguing pairing.

These oils are made with full-spectrum CBD and come in 30 mL (1 fl oz) or 60 mL (2 fl oz) amber bottles with the same strength options to choose from (300 mg, 1000 mg, 2000 mg, and 5000 mg) as the other tinctures.

If you go with the 5000 mg bottle, a little goes a long way, and you’re getting the best deal for your dollar at only $0.02 per mg of CBD.

If you’re into the natural wellness and supplement space, you may be familiar with MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil. It’s a healthy fat that is easily digested in the body and is linked to many health benefits.

Regular MCT oil is usually made up of four medium-chain fatty acids (C6, C8, C10, C12)  — C8, also known as caprylic acid, has eight carbon molecules. C8 MCT oil, therefore, only contains caprylic acid processed from coconut oil.

Many keto dieters prefer C8 because it’s easier to process in the body, while still maintaining a palatable flavor (C6 is even easier to digest but has a rancid flavor).

According to Phoria, C8 MCT oil gives you four times more ketone energy over regular MCT oils, better cognitive function, and suppresses food cravings. While this may be true for C8 MCT, 1 – 2 mL doses alongside CBD likely won’t give you those benefits.

Cost & Potency Breakdown of the C8 MCT Oil + CBD Oil Nano Tincture:

Here, we see yet another unique tincture offering from Phoria— we’ve only seen a handful of turmeric-infused CBD oils so far.

In Ayurvedic medicines, the turmeric root has been used for its active therapeutic ingredient, curcumin — potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. In the culinary space, turmeric is known for its vibrant yellow color in curry dishes.

While we think this idea is off to a good start, you need a large dose of curcumin to really take advantage of its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. You’re simply not getting enough curcumin in 1 mL doses of CBD tincture here — but that seems to be the theme with the other carrier oils as well.

Curcumin is also notoriously difficult for the body to absorb, which is why you’ll often find curcumin supplements paired with black pepper to enhance its absorption. This tincture doesn’t include black pepper extract to increase its effectiveness — but we still think it’s worth the try nonetheless at these price points.

Cost & Potency Breakdown of the Turmeric Curcumin Oil + CBD Oil Nano Tincture:
Product mage Product Name Total CBD Total Cost Total Volume Potency (CBD per mL) Price Per mg CBD

Just like Cannavapes offers customization in its CBD vape juices, Phoria allows you to create your own CBD tincture blends, and it’s well worth shopping with Phoria for this feature alone.

Let’s break down your options:

1. Choose your CBD strength, which will determine the price and bottle size of your tincture:

  • 300 mg  — 30 mL ($29.99)
  • 1000 mg — 30 mL ($49.99)
  • 2000 mg — 60 mL ($69.99)
  • 5000 mg  — 60 mL($99.99)

2. Next, select your base oil:

  • Hemp seed oil
  • C8 MCT oil
  • DHA oil
  • Turmeric oil + C8 MCT oil
  • Oil of oregano + C8 MCT oil
  • C60 + Olive Oil (+$20.00)

C60 stands for carbon-60 — 60 carbon atoms arranged in a unique shape. This is a bit of a controversial ingredient. Many people swear by its health benefits, including increased longevity (thanks to its powerful antioxidant properties), improved immune function, and supports cognitive function.

Most studies relating to C60 olive oil benefits relate to certain mammals. However, there aren’t enough human studies to substantiate these claims — it still makes for an appealing option for a tincture base if you’re willing to dish out an extra $20.

Just a note on dosing C60 — we found the general consensus on the web for dosage  is roughly around 5 mL of oil (but this can vary depending on weight, age, metabolism, etc.) For this reason, when combining C60 with CBD, perhaps a lower strength is more appropriate, to get the best of both compounds.

Now back to building your own tincture with Phoria.

3. The last step is to select your flavoring. This isn’t offered in any of the categories mentioned earlier of CBD tinctures. They’re all unflavored (naturally flavored with the base oils).

You can select from two essential oil flavors:

  • Lemon oil
  • Peppermint oil

Or choose from 16 terpene blends from popular cannabis strains:

  • Birthday Cake
  • Strawberry Cough
  • Apple Jack
  • Blue Dream
  • Blueberry Afgoo
  • Cherry Pie
  • Clementine
  • Banana Kush
  • Fruity Pebbles OG
  • Pineapple Express
  • Sunset Sherbet
  • Trainwreck
  • Cannalope Haze
  • Granddaddy Purp
  • Grape Ape
  • Skywalker OG

Each cannabis strain has a unique terpene profile — the fragrant compounds found in plants. For example, myrcene is a common cannabis terpene, and it’s abundant in citrus fruits. Myrcene’s benefits include relaxation and anti-inflammatory properties.

You have an ample range of combinations to play within the build-your-own tincture option — and again, it’s incredibly affordable.

What Does Phoria Do Well?

1. High Strength CBD Topicals

One of the biggest issues we come across shopping for CBD topicals is the dismal CBD strengths in formulas.

For minor skin irritations, we recommend at least 5 mg/mL of CBD. The other skin-nourishing ingredients in the lotion, cream, or salve should help to alleviate symptoms.

If you’re looking for something stronger to provide pain relief, soothe sore muscles, or an SOS for skin problems, you’ll need something that has more CBD. 

Phoria’s salves have a CBD potency of 35.33 mg/g, while its lotions and oils have 16.9 mg/mL. This brand delivers its promise of offering some of the most potent CBD topicals on the market.

2. Fully Customizable CBD Tinctures

One of the highlights of this brand for us is the ability to customize your CBD tincture with distinctive base oils and flavors.

Phoria presents itself as a natural wellness brand. The best demonstration of this is in the base oils it offers —  this brand goes above and beyond your typical carrier oils with offerings including, DHA oil, C8 MCT oil, C60 olive oil, and turmeric curcumin oil to the menu.

You can also select from 18 flavors for a more palatable tincture.

3. Very Competitive Pricing

For the sake of easily comparing product pricing across different brands, we stick to the metric of cost per mg of CBD.

Of course, this is a rough estimate as there is a lot that goes into the pricing of a product — the quality of hemp, additional ingredients, certifications, third-party lab testing, etc.

Phoria’s product catalog is competitively priced, and we highly recommend its topicals and tinctures for anyone on a budget. For premium full-spectrum CBD extracts, you can expect to pay a little more, but that’s not the case here.

For some perspective, we’ll lay out the price of per mg of CBD for each category next to the average on the market.

Product Category Phoria’s Price (per mg of CBD) Average Competitors Price (per mg of CBD)
Topicals $0.02 $0.26 – $0.36
Tincture $0.02 – $0.10 $0.10 – $0.16
Capsules $0.06 – $0.11 $0.12 – $0.20

Why do Phoria’s products cost significantly less than the average competitors?

Phoria is able to do this because it’s part of a larger CBD company identity that wholesales CBD products. Purchasing large quantities will reduce the overall price of the CBD extract and other ingredients. Phoria has decided to pass on these savings to the customer.

Where Could Phoria Improve?

1.  Make Complete Third-Party Testing Available

Throughout the Phoria site, you’ll find the statement that the products are tested for quality control. While you can find the Certificate of Analysis that test for cannabinoid profile and potency, there aren’t any tests that prove they’ve tested the CBD extract for contamination (solvents, heavy metals, microbial, etc.).

This is important because contaminations can ruin the benefits CBD has to offer and can be potentially dangerous.

We’re a little less concerned about Phoria’s CBD extract only because the extracts used for its sister company, Cannavape, are tested for contaminants, and it uses the same hemp source.

Still, it’s best practice for quality assurance to show they’ve tested for every batch of Phoria’s products.

2. The Dosing of the Carrier Oils (For Tinctures) Are Not Considered

While we appreciate the fact that Phoria offers unique base oils for its tinctures (like chromista oil, C8 MCT oil, turmeric curcumin oil), it completely glosses over the fact that you need to take substantial doses of these oils (more than 1 or 2 mL). However, doing so could put you over your desired CBD dose, which may lead to undesirable side effects.

Don’t get us wrong — these carrier oils are unique and do, in fact, have their own health benefits.

However, we’re skeptical of its potential to act as a useful daily supplement alongside CBD. You’re simply not getting enough of the active compounds in the carrier oil to take advantage of their full benefits without going over your CBD dosage.

Safety & Third-Party Testing

All product packaging is marked with a batch number to cross-reference third-party lab results. The CoA is available for every product on the website. However, only the cannabinoid profile and potency is provided.

We consider this incomplete third-party lab testing. Phoria mentions on the website that it tests for contamination, and if it does, we’d like to see the results.

Phoria’s Shipping & Return Policy

Phoria ships internationally with USPS or FedEx.

You’ll receive the tracking number for your via. email. The cost of shipping is determined on the destination of the package.

Be sure you’re aware of your country’s CBD regulations — the Phoria catalog uses full-spectrum CBD that can have up to (0.3% THC), making it illegal in many parts of the world.

If your order hasn’t been shipped, you can cancel your order — However, Phoria is pretty speedy with their shipping (same day shipping Monday – Friday).

The policy doesn’t allow for returns, but if you run into a problem with your product like the product comes to your door damaged or something’s just not right, you can reach out to the customer service team via email or on its Facebook page.

Final Verdict: Competitive Prices & All-Around Great Products

If shopping on a budget is your main concern, Phoria is your best bet. The price per mg of full-spectrum CBD in each product is offered at a fraction of the price of popular competitors.

Because it’s priced cheap, doesn’t mean the product themselves are low-quality. Phoria comes from the same CBD industry leaders who created Cannavape, Cannastick, and Hemp Wholesaler.

We highly recommend the Phoria salves — they’re high strength, contain simple natural ingredients, and come in a variety of scents.

The other offering we highly recommend you check out are the custom blend tinctures. Again, they’re priced at a killer deal and come in several unique carrier oils (DHA, C8 MCT, oregano oil +  MCT, and C60 + olive oil), plus you can add your favorite terpene flavor to the blend.

Where we dock points mostly lies in the fact that we can’t get ahold of Phoria’s complete third-party lab tests that check for product contamination. While we can attest to the quality of Phoria’s sister brand, Cannavapes, when it comes to CBD testing, we want to ensure Phoria meets the same standards.
