MIRAFLORA REVIEW 2022
Although Miraflora was only launched in 2019, it boasts a fairly decent product inventory with several lines, including tinctures, topicals, softgels, beverages, edibles, and pet items. All its items are made from pesticide-free, USDA-certified, non-GMO, hemp-derived CBD, and sell for $7- $500, and have a total CBD concentration of 10- 3000 mg. It employs the CO2 extraction method to process hemp and extract CBD oil because the technique is safe and efficient. Miraflora has a well-designed professional website and provides educational resources through the Podcasts & Blogs under the About Us section and every product page. Besides, its clients enjoy free shipping for all orders to all destinations, and a 90-day money-back guarantee applies. However, unlike most reputable CBD brands, it does not offer veteran military discounts but gives all first-time buyers a 20% off all sales. Here is our full 2022 review of the brand, which helps you understand whether the company really measures up.
About the Company
Miraflora is a Colorado-based CBD brand that is about three years old in the CBD market since its launch in 2019. Although it only has a history of 3 years in the hemp space, the farm on which it is based has a history that’s almost a decade old when the Wynne-Facchinello family owned it for the first time. According to its website, Miraflora takes pride in using innovative techniques that harness and protect hemp flowers’ beneficial properties, resulting in the premium quality products the company boasts.
Miraflora sources hemp from a 160-acre farm in Boulder County, Colorado, which is fed by fresh waters from the Rocky Mountain National Park. It then uses the clean human-grade CO2 extraction method to process the hemp flowers, extracting the oil from them. The extracts are in THC-free, broad-, and full-spectrum formulations and are presented as the mainstream CBD products, including gummies, tinctures, topicals, pet items, beverages, softgels, and bath bombs. These products sell for $7- $500, with an average price point of $0.15 per mg CBD, well above the market average. The total CBD concentrations in the products are 10- 3000 mg, and all these items are 3rd party tested for standard contaminants like heavy metals, microbials, solvents, residues, and for THC/CBD potency, after which the results are posted on a centralized hub.
Like other reputable CBD brands, Miraflora has a money-back guarantee lasting 90 days and a free shipping arrangement for all orders without a minimum amount. Although it does not have a military veteran discount, it offers 20% off all sales for all first-time buyers. The website is easily navigable and allows an easy shopping experience. It also has a dedicated FAQ section with the most commonly asked questions answered, and the Certificate on Analysis under the About Us section or at the bottom of the page detail all the 3rd lab rest results. Also included on the website is the information about the team behind the company, another plus for Miraflora.
According to its website, the following specs are true about Miraflora;
Hemp quality is a critical factor in the cannabis space since it determines the quality of the final products a brand produces. As such, reputable companies opt to source premium quality hemp and apply an appropriate method to extract oil, resulting in high-quality products. Miraflora sources its hemp from a 160-acre farm in Boulder County, Colorado. The hemp is certified organic and non-GMO, and the farm, hemp, and farming practices are USDA-certified. It employs the clean and safe human-grade CO2 extraction method to extract oil from the hemp, and the final products are in THC-free, full-, and broad-spectrum formulations.
Miraflora sources its hemp from a 160-acre farm in Colorado, Boulder County, where the farms, plants, and farming practices are USDA-certified for organic and sustainable standards. Besides, the hemp plants are pesticide-free and non-GMO, resulting in the same quality products. The farms are among the largest in Colorado homesteads and are fed by the fresh Rocky Mountain National Park waters. As such, they result in high-quality hemp, helping the brand produce the premium quality CBD products it needs.
Miraflora uses the clean and safe human-grade CO2 extraction method to process its harvested hemp and extract CBD oil from the hemp surfaces. The technique is deemed safe and efficient in the cannabis space since it removes the oil, cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids carefully without unnecessarily attaching solvents to the final products. Most CBD brands use MCT oil to formulate their extracts, making them more bioavailable, and Miraflora is no exception. It offers THC-free, broad-and full-spectrum CBD products, most of which are formulated with MCT oil for bioavailability and easy digestion.
The next step is 3rd party testing, a vital quality and control strategy Miraflora runs to ensure its products are as potent as the CBD and THC contents indicated on the labels and that they are free of standard contaminants, including heavy metals, microbials, residues, solvents, and mycotoxins. The lab test results are located on the centralized Certificates of Analysis hub, which can be directly accessed from the bottom of the website or under the About Us section of the main menu. Out of the six products we offered, only three had contaminant purity test results, and while all the six had potency test results, four passed the tests, posing a variance less than the 10% acceptable limit.

What We Do Not Like About the Company
Although Miraflora has so much to be desired, it has its cons, including;
Miraflora is a vertically integrated CBD brand based in Colorado. Although it is fairly young in the hemp space, it has many pros, including a decent product inventory, free shipping for all orders, a 90-day money-back guarantee, a professionally-designed and informative website, use of organic, pesticide-free, non-GMO hemp for manufacturing its products, application of the clean human-grade CO2 extraction method to strip CBD oil from the hemp surface, and a centralized lab results hub for easy viewership. It offers softgels, tinctures, topicals, edibles, beverages, and pet items in THC-free, broad-, and full-spectrum formulations, enabling it to win an even larger loyal customer base. Nonetheless, it has a few cons, including higher variances than the 10% acceptable limit for some items, some products in the inventory lacking lab results, and the relatively higher average price point, which could make it lose clients. As such, it is a good brand, and straightening the few kinks helps it perform even better.
