Green Roads Review
The goal of our Green Roads CBD Review is to help our readers make more thought-out and informed purchasing decisions. To accomplish this, we will provide detailed accounts of our experience with the product, as well as insights about the product and company based on our experience and knowledge.
With worldwide brand awareness and hundreds of positive reviews, Green Roads World is one of the most well-known CBD brands today. Being a brand of its caliber, most would expect that Green Roads’ products are among the best; but in reality, is that really the case?
In this review, we sought to find the answer to this question as we performed an in-depth analysis of the brand’s popular 1,500mg Tincture!
If you’re in the market for a bottle of CBD, then you’re going to read our official Green Roads CBD Review first… Let’s dive in!
Green Roads Quality
According to their website, Green Roads CBD 1500mg tincture is made in America from a pharmacist with over 20 years of experience, and contains broad spectrum CBD oil, hemp seed oil, 99% pure CBD isolate, and Kosher-grade vegetable glycerin. They also offer full-spectrum CBD oils, also mixed with vegetable glycerin. Combined, these ingredients form a high-quality and effective blend, that can safely be administered sublingually and vaporized. Green Roads CBD oil starts in American hemp farms. Green Roads won “Best CBD Product” at the 2018 Cannabis Business awards for their outstanding product.
However, the cannabinoid content of Green Roads CBD oil was confirmed with an analysis report performed by Evio Labs on November 12, 2018. Lab results showed that while the blend does contain the proper amount of CBD listed, according to the its analysis report, it does not contain any other cannabinoids, so it technically isn’t a “broad spectrum” CBD oil. We’ll keep an eye on any updated lab results and update them here.
One thing I did appreciate was that the COA for this product was easily found on the product page, as were COA’s for all other Green Road World products. This makes it easy to validate the cannabinoid content of their products.
Green Roads offers full-spectrum CBD oil, broad-spectrum CBD oil, and standard CBD oil.
What is Full-Spectrum CBD Oil?
Green Roads offers full-spectrum CBD oil. Full-spectrum CBD contains all phytochemicals found in cannabis and hemp. This includes CBD, cannabinoids, terpenes, and essential oils. Full-spectrum CBD contain a very small amount of THC, typically less than 0.3%. Full-spectrum CBD can trigger a drug test to run a false positive. This is more problematic for individuals who take a lot of CBD oil frequently. Full-spectrum CBD oil generally contains cannabinol (CBN), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidiol acid (CBDA), cannabidvarin (CBDV). One of the benefits of full-spectrum CBD oil is the Entourage Effect.
Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil
Green Roads also offers broad-spectrum CBD. It is similar to full-spectrum CBD, but it has all of the THC removed. Full-spectrum CBD is typically less than 0.3 percent THC, but still it contains some. Broad-spectrum CBD sits between full-spectrum CBD and pure CBD isolate.
From a visual inspection, Green Road’s CBD Oil exhibits a creamy yellow appearance, with a viscous texture and strong hempy fragrance. The flavor is similar to the odor, with a distinct vegetable glycerine taste.
While I don’t mind the strong hemp fragrance and taste because I know it is simply the natural characteristics of the plant, please note that it may be a bit different and unusual for users who enjoy artificially flavored or light flavored tinctures.

Products for Pets
More and more people are using CBD to help their pets with a variety of illnesses, as well as using them generally for the different health benefits these products offer. Green Roads CBD products for pets are made with the same high quality, hemp-derived CBD that all of their products are made with. Though research is in early stages, there is plenty of anecdotal evidence that CBD can benefit pets in many of the same ways it benefits humans. In particular, chronic pain and seizures are key areas that treatment for pets has shown to be effective. However, it is important to check with your veterinarian before beginning any new treatment with your pets.
Green Roads CBD Oil for pets is specially formulated to help animals. They offer products designed for cats, small dogs, medium dogs, and large dogs. They are high quality hemp-derived cannabinoid extracts combined with MCT oil to increase bio-availability. These Green Roads products are great, be sure to check them out if you are curious about helping a pet in need.
Greenroads Company Background
One of the Green Roads founders, Arby Barroso, struggled with an opiate addiction. He had a prescription to aid him with post-surgery pain, but became dependent on the drugs. Arby had been using hemp products and found them to be extremely helpful in increasing his sense of well-being, and had the idea to create hemp products to help others in the same situation as he. He enlisted the help of licensed compound pharmacist Laura Baldwin Fuentes to bring these products to others. As the two continued to see how much it was helping Arby, they set out on a mission to bring these products to the public.
Eventually, Danny Perdeck and Jimmy Tundidor joined to found Green Roads.
As of 2020, Green Roads CBD products are in over 10,000 stores and the company tops the charts at number one as the largest private CBD product provider in America.
With thousands of 5-star reviews across the brand’s website and social profiles, Green Roads has established an impressive reputation for itself.
While achieving such a reputation must have been a challenge for a brand competing in such a new industry, Green Roads achieves it through transparency, integrity and the company’s dedication to its mission of providing a natural alternative to traditional medication.
While it’s easy to assume that large companies cut corners―because I’m sure there are many that do―Green Roads has worked hard to establish a reputation of integrity, quality, and trust.
