Charlotte’s Web CBD Cream Reviews


 | Last revised

Oct, 2022

Charlotte’s Web is a CBD company founded in 2011 in Colorado by seven brothers.

The company mostly focuses on making full-spectrum CBD products, including oils, gummies, capsules, and now an exciting range of topical skin creams.

Charlotte’s Web grows all of the hemp used in their products on farms in Colorado, Oregon, and Kentucky. All of their products are gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO, and some of their products are Certified Organic.

While some of the CBD extracts used in their skincare range exceed the legal limit for THC content for sale without a prescription, some of their products might make their way to the Australian market in future.

To help you decide whether to give their products a go, this CW CBD cream review will take a look at the most popular CW hemp cream products they offer, along with the company itself.

Charlotte’s Web Lab Results

Charlotte’s Web is fairly transparent about the contents of its products.

You can find a Certificate of Analysis for each batch using the batch number found on a product you purchased. This means you can only check the lab results for a product after you have bought it, but you can also view recent samples of Certificates of Analysis for each of their products. [1]

These lab results show that the products are not contaminated by harmful amounts of toxins such as bacteria or heavy metals.

They also show that Charlotte’s Web products can contain more CBD, THC, and other cannabinoids than stated on the label.

In some examples, the dose of CBD per ml is as much as 9 mg of CBD higher than advertised, and THC content sometimes exceeds 0.2%. This amount of variation is not unusual for full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products.

As a result, most of their CBD products would only be available to medical cannabis prescription holders if they were approved for sale in Australia.

Although, this is not looking likely any time soon, unfortunately.

Charlotte’s Web CBD Cream Customer Reviews

Charlotte’s Web CBD cream customers are generally happy with the products themselves, finding them effective at relieving aches and pains and inexpensive compared to similar brands.

However, customers ordering directly from the company often highlight slow delivery times and unresponsive customer service.

Again, it must be noted that presently Australians can’t legally import these products.
