The Bottom Line
Nobody does organic quite like Green Gorilla.
Who they are: Green Gorilla is based in Malibu, California, and São Paulo, Brazil. The international group of founders are led by CEO Stephen Saxon, a tenured Hollywood producer. They are committed to “sustainable and ethical choices that will help preserve our planet and future.” The obvious way they do this is with ingredients: the hemp comes from certified organic farms in Colorado, Nevada, and Europe. The carrier oil and most other ingredients are also organic.
On the initiative page of the site, they mention charitable efforts to preserve the world’s water sources. However, those efforts remain vague. They wear the stamps for FDA-registered facilities and GMP standards without providing details. They state that products are third-party tested, but downloadable reports or links are not provided. Some products are USDA organic certified, which represents a lack of pesticides and herbicides.
Why they’re unique: Green Gorilla demonstrates outstanding adherence to simple, certified organic ingredients. They use organic extra virgin olive oil as the carrier for their CBD, contrasting the typical coconut/hempseed oil of just about every competitor.
What products they have: The mainstay of Green Gorilla is the oil, both isolate and full spectrum. The full spectrum oil is available in 1,200 mg or 3,000 mg bottles; however, these quantities refer to “hemp extract,” which they report as containing 25% CBD. The isolate oils offer a wider range of 150 mg to 7,500 mg, and these quantities refer specifically to CBD. They are THC-free. Flavor options are either lemon or null… take your pick.
The CBD Gorilla Gummies deserve special mention. These bad boys are 95% organic, gelatin free, and certified kosher. Get ready for the flavor train with USDA organic fruit, vegetable juice, and botanicals. Green Gorilla also offers a 20 mg lip balm with a beeswax base and several essential oils. Pet products include oils that appear identical to their human counterparts and dog nibblets made of lamb.
Jameson gave the dog treats 5 stars: “My Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix has been on muscle relaxers for two years due to an auto immune disorder that rendered his front right leg gimp and useless. We decided to try these treats a few days ago and he is now using all 4 legs to walk, is seemingly happier and more energetic, and is even attempting to run a little bit like his old self!”
Be aware of the refund policy: products must be unopened, returned to the facility at the customer’s expense, and inspected. Refunds over $100 are issued as store credit. Ouch.
Bonus: Free shipping on orders over $75. Recurring subscription to products merits a small discount. Sharing certain products on social media also awards small discounts. They also have a rewards program that offers points for each purchase.
