Since we assess various CBD customer buying experiences, we ordered a few products. The company offers product descriptions on each product, making it easier to understand what their products entail. They have listed the several ingredients used, THC and CBD levels, how to administer them, their purpose, and prices. Adding and omitting products to our shopping cart was straightforward. During ordering, we did not experience any technicalities up to making payments. Payments were approved within two minutes, and an email was sent to us confirming we had successfully placed the order. The email entailed significant information such as the list of products we had ordered, expected days for shipment, and a tracking number to help us follow up on our products.
We received our products on the third day after placing the order. We assessed the product’s potency variance and purity using the QR codes on facial cream and tinctures. Unfortunately, some of the products exceeded the 10% variance. The facial cream had a potency of 358.8mg, contrary to the stated 300 mg, 19% more. On the other hand, the tinctures had a slight variance of 0.32%. According to the results we obtained from the QR codes, we found 501mg rather than 500 mg. All the products tested negative for THC. However, the contaminant tests were not available.
The company uses reviews from its customers to keep track of its reputation. They have a page with over 1000 positive reviews. Also, we noticed a customer concerned about the purity test of their products. The company responded positively, claiming they were working on it. The company has a FAQ page that addresses common concerns. It’s divided into three parts; general, shipping, and refunds. Some of the concerns addressed include whether CBD gets someone high, tracking an order, and canceling the order. The company has responded to each concern precisely.
If your concern has not yet been addressed, you can reach out to its support team for clarification. Unfortunately, the company doesn’t offer a phone number, email, or physical address. You can only contact its support team using the message box or live chat. However, the support team readily responds to concerns within hours.

Smile CBD grows premium organic hemp legally within the U.S. Although the company insists their hemp is organic and sustainable farming practices are used, it has not been clear on the location of their farm. Various elements such as MCT oil is are blended in their hemp extracts to maximize effectiveness and quality. MCT oil helps in increasing digestion and absorption of topical products since it’s a maximum carrier of bioavailability.
Since the company is interested in significant elements of the hemp plant only, it uses the CO2 extraction method. Despite being expensive, it is effective and minimizes products and environmental contamination. After extraction, the crude oil is mixed with other natural elements and filtered for the final processing. The products are processed using a few chemicals to avoid contamination.
For consumer safety and precaution, each batch is tested for purity and potency after manufacturing to ensure they comply with FDA protocols. This responsibility is given to the independent lab, which ensures CBD levels are accurate, and if there is variance, it’s between the acceptable limit of 10%. In addition, the lab ensures THC levels don’t exceed 0.3% to avoid getting people high. The lab also ensures no contaminants such as heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides are in the products.
Range of Products

Currently, its line of products includes topicals, tinctures, beauty products, and gummies. Upon comparing its prices with other brands, Smile CBD products are fairly priced.
Smile CBD Tinctures
Although tinctures are not discreet, they are effective since they are in liquid form, making absorption easier. According to their product description, they are formulated using CO2 hemp plant extracts alongside MCT oil. These tinctures are organic. The company suggests 1ml per day, which should be administered orally. You can increase their effectiveness by putting the drops under your tongue for about 60 seconds before swallowing. Although each serving comes in a 30ml bottle, they are offered in two potency levels; 500mg and 1000mg. Each serving comes with an accurately marked dropper to help consumers administer the correct dosage. In addition, to evade the natural taste of the hemp plant, you can add a few drops that will amount to 1ml to your favorite beverage or food. 1000 mg goes for $63.75 and 500 mg at $49.
Smile CBD Gummies
Unlike tinctures, gummies are convenient because they are discreet and can be administered anywhere, even at work. The company manufactures its gummies using MCT oil for rapid absorption and CO2 hemp plant extracts. Each bottle contains 30 gummies, each with a potency of 10mg. Currently, the company has vegan gummies only with a total potency of 300mg at $29.75 per bottle. They exist in three flavors, which are 100% natural. The company recommends 1 gummy a day and oral use only.
Smile CBD Topicals

What We Like About the Company
The company has maximized on various aspects to make it preferable. All its products are manufactured using organic hemp plant extracts to improve people’s health and wellness rather than contaminating their bodies. Also, all their products are non-GMO and vegan, making them most preferable, even with those following a vegan diet.

Before manufacturing takes place, all the ingredients are assessed to ensure they are natural. Its website is easy to use, and payments are approved within two minutes at most. The company’s support team is readily available to address concerns regarding its products.
What We Don’t Like About the Company
The company has a limited line of products that limits other consumers, such as those who prefer vape products. Even though its potency might work for CBD newbies, it might not be effective for veterans since they might need to overdose for effectiveness as its potency range is limited. The company has inadequate purity testing even though it has a centralized lab that it can maximize. Gladly, the company offers free shipping on orders exceeding $50, while most companies offer free shipping despite the minimum amount used.
Smile CBD has room for adjustments to improve its market performance. It should work on its line of products and bring various unique products onboard, such as vapes and pet products. However, its products are of high quality making them preferable. They are all vegan and non-GMO, which are rare to find. Although a few products have exceeded the 10% CBD potency variance, most are within the stated variance. In addition, their products don’t have THC levels, making them suitable since they won’t get you high. All in all, Smile CBD has an average market performance.
