When you’re shopping for CBD, you want a high-quality product you can trust in and feel confident you’ll love. There are a lot of choices out there, so we’re here to make it easier for you. Make sure you ask yourself these six questions about a brand before you buy:Where do they source their products from?
The quality of CBD depends on how and where the hemp extract is grown. Most hemp used in CBD products in the U.S. comes from Colorado, Oregon, Kentucky, or is imported from overseas. According to Consumer Reports, Colorado has a robust and well-regulated hemp program. The state’s agricultural program tests hemp plants in the field to monitor THC levels.¹
ALTWELL sources our hemp extract from Colorado. We carefully choose each supplier for their quality, potency, consistency, and ethical growing practices.
Do they test their products rigorously?
This is so incredibly important. Always look for a CBD brand that uses a stringent testing process through a third party. This ensures that the product is safe, high quality, and effective.
At ALTWELL, we pride ourselves on our meticulous testing process. We test every product three times — the hemp extract is tested prior to use, an in-process sample is tested during production and a post-packaging test of the finished product is done as well. All testing is done through a third party.
Are they transparent about their products and process?
Just like with people, your relationship with brands should be built on a foundation of trust. Your CBD brand should be completely transparent with how they produce and test their products.
With every purchase, we provide a certificate of analysis (COA) that shows how your product performed on tests checking for CBD and THC levels. The COA also shows that the product passed tests for heavy metals, pesticides, bacteria, mold, and other materials, so you know what you’re getting is safe and free of any harmful contaminants.

Do they offer a variety of form and function?
Some brands offer only one type or form of CBD. We want you to have a wide array of options, so you can choose what is best for you and your lifestyle. We offer both Broad Spectrum and Full Spectrum options (read all about the differences here) as well as a variety of forms — from tinctures to topicals, gummies, softgels, and protein powder.
Who is behind the brand?
The “who” is just as important as the “what.” Look for CBD brands that are led by trusted food and nutrition professionals with extensive experience in the manufacturing industry.
