However, its shipping is limited to the EU and UK zones and excludes all other regions. Here is our full 2022 review of the brand, which explores whether it indeed measures up in the hemp space.
About the Company
Provacan is the trademark CBD brand in the UK and EU regions. Based in London, UK., the company is the daughter brand of CiiTech, the leading CBD research company. What’s more, Provacan bears the brainchild name of leading CBD bodies and collaborates with the University of Jerusalem for CBD research. Moreover, the company is closely associated with Dr. Raphael Melchoum, the father of CBD research. Following its deep connection with key figures in the cannabis space and leading CBD research bodies, the brand is outstandingly different, and its success rate is great, as seen in its efforts to create other subsidiary brands like Huggs and Impact.
Provacan’s website is well-detailed and professionally designed. It has a Contact Us section with a phone number and an email address one can use to reach the company’s customer care desk. What’s more, the Shop button collapses into several options for the various products available in the company’s catalog. The About Us section details information about the company’s founding and the CiiiTech team since it is the daughter brand of CiiTech. The CEO and other key figures in the brand are mentioned with a brief description of them under their photos. Although the company has a centralized Lab Reports link on the main website, there are no lab tests therein, and one has to contact the customer care department to view lab results for his ordered products. However, the FAQ link is well-detailed and answers common questions people might have about CBD and the company, touching on shipping and return policies.
Apart from its unique research stamina, Provacan boasts an unmatched product inventory. It offers full-spectrum lozenges, edibles, topicals, tinctures, e-liquid, vapes, and more. Besides, it offers a wide CBD concentration variance of 30- 5000 mg, allowing in all enthusiasts, whether veteran or novice. The CBD products in the company’s inventory sell for £8.99- £149.99, which is a wide limit, accommodating different consumers with different financial capabilities. With an average price point of £0.03- £0.2, the company’s products are averagely priced, although some sell expensively.

Hemp quality is a critical factor in the hemp space since it dictates the quality of the final products a brand produces. As such, reputable brands grow their hemp that meets the standards they desire or liaise with farms whose hemp matches brands’ quality. According to its website, Provacan sources its hemp from EU farms, but the exact sources of the hemp plants are not revealed. It then uses the clean CO2 extraction method to process hemp and isolate CBD from it, resulting in the full-spectrum products in its inventory.
Transparency and Accuracy
Transparency in the CBD space is ensured by conducting independent 3rd party tests, a vital quality and control strategy CBD brands take up to ensure their products are pure and potent. Provacan submits to this since it liaises with Phytovista, the largest lab provider in the UK, to conduct its 3rd party tests. However, unlike most CBD brands that focus on THC & CBD potencies and purity for standard contaminants, including heavy metals, residues, mycotoxins, and microbials, Provacan only focuses on potency tests. Besides, the brand does not upload the test results on the Lab Reports centralized section. One has to reach the company’s customer care desk to have the lab results sent.
Provacan is a legal, authorized grower and processor of hemp sourced from EU farms. Although its website mentions that it sources hemp from EU zones, the exact places where the hemp farms are located are not revealed. Provacan uses Kosher-certified hemp to manufacture its premium quality CBD products. Since the hemp is grown in Europe, chances are high that it meets the highest safety standards, adding to product safety.
Provacan uses the clean CO2 extraction method to process its hemp and strip CBD oil out of it. This technique is highly appreciated in the cannabis space since it is safe and efficient. While it carefully extracts terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, it does not unnecessarily attach solvents to the extracts. The process uses low-temperature and low-pressure conditions, resulting in the brand’s high-quality products.
The next stage is 3rd party testing, which is a vital quality and control strategy Provacan executes to ensure all products in its inventory are potent. It liaises with Phytovista, UK’s leading lab provider, to test its products for THC and CBD potency. However, unlike most brands that post their lab results online for easy access and viewership by clients and web visitors, Provacan does not upload its lab results on its website, and one has to reach the customer care desk to have them. For our products and lab results, it’s clear that most products in the company’s catalog have THC amounts lower than the maximum threshold, but most items have CBD high CBD variances, getting as far as 15%. Sadly, Provacan does not address standard contaminants like heavy metals, solvents, residues, microbials, filth, foreign matter, and mycotoxins, which is a major kink.

What We Do Not Like About the Company
Despite the mentioned pros, Provacan has its cons, including;
We were impressed by our review of the Provacan CBD brand since it boasts an unmatched CBD inventory, multiple potencies for its products, and kosher certification, offers free shipping for all orders worth £100 and above, and a 30-day money-back guarantee. Nonetheless, the brand has a few kinks to improve to perform better and attract an even larger loyal customer base. Its money-back guarantee is strict, some items in its catalog have extremely high CBD variances, it does not avail lab results on the centralized online hub and must be requested, the lab test results do not focus on contaminants, and the website does not detail where the company sources its hemp in Europe. Improving these areas will help Provacan perform better in the CBD space in 2022 and beyond.
