The Green Gorilla manufacturing process is driven by the strict standards behind the USDA Organic Certification. Since the majority of their products carry the certification, we weren’t surprised to find that they source the majority of their hemp from their own farm in Arizona or from partner farms who use a fully-organic growing process, meaning no chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used.
At their own farm, they take sustainability and environmental protection a step further. The brand uses optimized soil designed to be nutrient-rich and retain rainfall to reduce the need for watering. To cover the rest, they use a natural aquifer system with holding ponds.
After harvesting premium hemp material, the brand uses two different extraction methods that they deem to be the best (and we generally agree)—Supercritical CO2 extraction and non-GMO organic ethanol extraction. Each formula is crafted in a GMP-certified facility that is FDA Registered and/or USDA-Certified Organic.
All in all, the brand is detailed and transparent about their farming and manufacturing processes—and luckily the brand’s premium quality shines through in their third-party lab testing, too.
When we said Green Gorilla was transparent, we should have also mentioned that they are very thorough. They offer a third-party lab analysis for every product batch that is easy to find on their website or by scanning the QR code on every label. These tests show the cannabinoid potency, terpene content, and evaluate samples for a wide range of contaminants, like pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, microbials, and more.
Green Gorilla’s CBD product line is well-developed, and they offer just about any formulation you can think of, from tinctures to balms to edibles and more. Starting with their expansive CBD oil selection, you’ll find full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and pure CBD oil formulas with potencies ranging as high as 7,500 mg per bottle. We like that these bottles stray from the ordinary—the brand forgoes the standard dropper lid for a pump-top that they claim distributes a specific amount of CBD each time.
The CBD Capsules selection is also expansive but takes CBD to a different level. One formulation, the Balance CBD Capsules, is designed to offer just broad-spectrum CBD and olive oil (for optimal absorption). The other options from the capsules collection offer proprietary formulations that include CBD plus various herbs and vitamins to meet specific needs, like Sleep, which contains tryptophan and chamomile, or Inflamed, which contains boswellia, curcumin, and more.
Green Gorilla also offers a USDA-Certified Organic CBD Gummy which comes 60 to a bottle and offers five mg of pure CBD each. They offer a medley of berry flavors and are soy and nut-free, plant-based, and Kosher.
The brand’s CBD skincare line also didn’t disappoint and contains a variety of products that help build a full CBD skincare routine, like CBD Lip Balm, Body Lotion, and Face Creme. The star of the show, however, is the USDA-Certified Organic Botanical CBD Balm, which combines arnica, eucalyptus, lavender, various phytonutrients, and essential fatty acids to provide natural relief from aching muscles and joints.
The Green Gorilla line doesn’t miss a beat. We like that you can get everything you need to design a full-coverage routine from one brand, even if you have strict requirements (like a preference for certified organic products or products made without THC).
They offer everything needed to back up the quality of their products and even have specific formulations to help target what ails you most. That, in combination with various potency options (even some that offer doses as small as two mg per dose), makes us feel confident in recommending Green Gorilla to anyone looking for a premium CBD supplement, even if they are just getting started.
