Trust and Transparency

How straightforward and trustworthy is this brand?

3.9/5
Green Roads earned a score of 3.9 stars in Trust and Transparency.
  • As mentioned, there's no shipping cost info and barely any info on shipping options in general.
  • Return policy info is only available on the terms and conditions page, showing a lack of transparency. It's especially concerning since the policy is only good for unopened and unused products.
  • Unfortunately, Green Roads requires consumers to disclose their info to get support. When I tried using the chat feature, I was required to disclose my email address to be connected with a live person. When I tried using the contact form, it required an email address and phone number.

Ingredients

Are the ingredients natural and free from potential side effects?

3.8/5
Green Roads earned 3.8 stars in Ingredients.
  • Products are categorized as mild, moderate, or mighty depending on the strength. If you're new to using CBD oil, this can be helpful.
  • The oil drops are made with a mixture of different carrier oils (what the CBD is mixed with), which is supposed to help increase absorption.
  • Green Roads uses natural ingredients with the exception of the Relax Bear Gummies and topical products.
  • The CBD oil drops are available in natural, apple kiwi bliss, and mint breeze flavor. I tried the apple kiwi bliss and found it to be overly strong, although I did get used to it.
  • Please be aware that for CBD Coffee lab results that I reviewed, it says the CBD amount may vary, but lab testing indicates it may not contain any CBD.
  • Some products have additional added active ingredients, besides CBD (e.g. Nootropics, Mushrooms). Most are considered to be supplements by the FDA. The FDA cautions that supplements often have the potential for side effects, they may interact with medications or cause problems with certain medical conditions. (These concerns don't apply to topical CBD because it doesn't enter the bloodstream.)
  • Nearly all of the Green Roads oil drops come with a syringe, instead of a dropper. Customer service said it's supposed to make dosing more accurate. I'm not a fan because the syringe needs to be taken apart and rinsed off each time it's used, or it gets messy and sticky.
  • I had problems with the lids not threading back onto the containers with the gummies and capsules that I tried.

Lab Testing

Is there Certificate of Analysis (COA) lab testing for quality and safety?

3.7/5
Green Roads earned 3.7 stars in Lab Testing. They do a really good job with consistent testing. The main reason the score isn't higher is due to issues with the Relax Bear testing.
  • Consumers can verify that the lab testing is legit by scanning a QR code on the results. Fabulous!
  • As mentioned, Green Roads consistently and thoroughly lab tests all products.
  • They go above in beyond when it comes to testing for a wide variety of mycotoxins (mold, fungi) and microbials (bad bacteria) and most products have terpene testing.
  • The lab testing results are usually listed out of date order which can be confusing.

Product Safety

What are the results of the lab testing?

3.8/5
Green Roads earned 3.8 stars in Product Safety.
  • Green Roads reports the lab results in the most transparent way possible so you can know exactly what's in the CBD oil. Two thumbs up!
  • Products are generally free from contaminants.
  • However, residual solvents have been detected in several products.
  • For example, in the CBD Daily Dose (mint breeze), Ethanol was detected at 4,004 (limit 5,000 to pass), 2-Propanol at 250 (limit 500), and Ethylene Oxide at 2.5 (limit 5).
  • While this isn't a widespread issue, it is an ongoing one. I've seen similar examples over the last year in Green Roads products.
