NIRVANA CBD REVIEW 2022
Nirvana CBD is a fairly young company in the hemp space, but it is fast picking it up to its roots. It capsules, edibles, topicals, and tinctures as the main products in its CBD catalog and sells them for $4.99 to $199.60, posing an average price point of $0.07- $0.15 per mg CBD. While this may seem higher than the market average, other brands have higher price points. The products mentioned above feature a 25- 2500 mg CBD concentration and are rigorously tested for THC and CBD potencies and also examined for standard contaminants like heavy metals, solvents, mycotoxins, filths, foreign matter, and microbials, and the results are posted online on the centralized Lab Reports hub for easy viewership. Nirvana sources its hemp from Oregon and Colorado farms and employs the clean CO2 extraction method to separate CBD oil from the hemp surfaces. The resultant extracts are in broad-spectrum formulations, allowing a full entourage effect without THC. Like many reputable CBD brands, Nirvana offers free shipping (for orders worth $50 and above) and a money-back guarantee (for 30 days) that dissatisfied clients can take advantage of and return unused items while claiming refunds and returns.
About the Company
According to its website, Nirvana is more than just a marketing brand, and CBD is more than just a product. It states that the brand is made up of a team of family members and individuals who truly care for the well-being of others, mean well for them, and intend to offer them natural relaxation. As such, the brand proudly commits to delivering premium quality CBD products consumers can take advantage of to attain the highest level of wellness they desire. The company has been in operation since 2017, during which it has been sourcing its hemp from Colorado and Oregon farms and working with California’s top laboratories to process them.
Nirvana’s website is straightforward and easily navigable, allowing a smooth surfing experience. The About Us link on the bottom of the pages gives a brief history of the brand, including how it came to be and the photos of its members. The Contact Us section offers a phone number and an email address for reaching the customer care desk. We tried reaching the customer care desk agents, but our email took six days to be responded to, which was quite disappointing. However, the company is strongly reputable for taking an educational approach to CBD through its educational blogs, which detail many pieces of information, including the factors affecting CBD dosage.
Nirvana has a modest CBD catalog comprising edibles, topicals, tinctures, and softgels, also called gel caps on the brand’s website. It sells the products for $4.99- $199.60, and it posts an average to high price point of $0.07- $0.15 per mg CBD. Nonetheless, the mentioned pricing is not the highest in the hemp space since some brands even triplicate the range. It deals in broad-spectrum CBD products whose concentrations range from 25 to 1500 mg. Nonetheless, there are only two potency options for tinctures. The company also stands out for rigorous 3rd party tests, and the results can be viewed online on the centralized Lab Reports hub at the bottom of the page.
The following specs are true to Nirvana based on its website;
Hemp quality is vital in the hemp space since it determines the quality of CBD products a company produces, ultimately influencing whether it holds hard-earned clients or loses them. As such, it is critical for any brand to grow hemp that meets the desired standards for the final products or liaise with farms that have hemp with the right standards. Nirvana ticked our boxes for hemp quality since it sources its hemp from Oregon ad Colorado, two regions with the highest hemp-growing areas in the US. Although the brand is not USDA-certified organic to the best of our knowledge, it observes organic standards in its farming practices, ensuring no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are used during the cycle. The clean CO2 extraction method is then employed to isolate CBD oil from the hemp surfaces. The final products are in broad-spectrum formulations for a full entourage effect without the psychoactive THC.
Nirvana is a legal, authorized grower and processor of American hemp sourced from Oregon and Colorado, two of the largest hemp-growing zones of the USA. The areas are climatically suitable and provide near-perfect conditions for hemp growing. Although the farms and the brand are not USDA-certified organic, the company takes pride in advertising itself as organic and upholding organic farming practices, ensuring no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides are used on the hemp plants.
Nirvana uses the clean CO2 extraction method to strip CBD oil from the hemp surface. This technique is the most preferred in the hemp space for its safety and efficiency since it cautiously strips CBD oil from the hemp surfaces without unnecessarily attaching solvents to the extracts, as seen in the online lab results that show the products to be free of contaminants. The resulting extracts are in broad-spectrum formulations, allowing a full entourage effect without the psychoactive THC.
The next step of the manufacturing process is rigorous 3rd party testing, an independent quality and control strategy the brand executes to ensure its products are potent and pure. It liaises with DB Labs LLC in Las Vegas to test the products for THC and CBD potencies and also to examine them for standard contaminants, including heavy metals, solvents, microbials, mycotoxins, residues, and filth. The results are then posted on a centralized online Lab Reports hub for easy one-and-all viewership. The results show that most items in the brand’s CBD catalog passed THC and contaminant purity tests, but some failed CBD potency tests, posing variances higher than the 10% acceptable limit.
Range of Products
Nirvana does not have an elaborate CBD catalog, but its inventory is fairly decent and offers the following CBD products;

What We Do Not Like About the Company
While Nirvana might have ticked our boxes for many things, it has its kinks it certainly has to improve to perform better in the hemp space and win an even larger loyal customer base, including;
Our review for Nirvana was fairly impressive, considering that the brand diligently conducts 3rd party tests and posts the results on a centralized online hub for easy viewership, offers free shipping for orders worth $50 and above and a 30-day money-back guarantee, and uses the clean CO2 extraction method to strip CBD oil from the hemp surfaces, evading unnecessarily attaching solvents to the extracts. Nonetheless, the company has a narrow product inventory with capsules, topicals, tinctures, and edibles only and focuses on broad-spectrum formulations only, the $50 free shipping threshold is relatively high, and the 30-day money-back guarantee is strict. Consequently, the company is doing well, and it can do even better by straightening the few kinks that put obstacles before its advancements.
