Are you looking for a CBD company that places a high premium on quality, sustainability, and consistency? Let us introduce you to Imbue Botanicals.
Founded in 2016, Imbue Botanicals is dedicated to providing high-quality, earth-first products to both humans and their pets. Its founders have more than three decades of experience in the healthcare and cannabis industries. With their practical knowledge and expertise, they strive to deliver the most premium quality products possible.
For thousands of years, humans have been using industrial hemp to make clothing, rope, rigging, sails, and medicine. Though many people have heard of full-spectrum hemp oils’ many benefits, many people are also under the misconception that these full-spectrum hemp oils will produce a psychoactive “high” like that of marijuana.
However, all of Imbue Botanicals’ products are formulated using oil derived from industrial hemp, which, by law, must contain no more than 0.3 percent THC. This means you and your pet can experience all the healthful benefits of a full-spectrum hemp oil supplement without the debilitating effects of a psychoactive high.
Imbue Botanicals Company Values
At the core of their business is a steadfast commitment to sustainability and quality. They have adopted a business philosophy which puts the well-being of both the Earth and their customers at the top of the list.
What’s more, Imbue Botanicals believes that all who need and want to benefit from their full-spectrum hemp oil should have the opportunity to do so. So, they’ve created assistance programs to help military veterans, those with disabilities, and those living at or below the poverty line to afford their full-spectrum CBD products.
To qualify for any of these offers, customers should send an email to [email protected] with all necessary documents to get started. Once approved, military veterans will qualify for 30 percent off one purchased item, 35 percent off for two or three purchased items, and 40 percent off four or more purchased items. All individuals with disabilities or those living at or below the poverty line qualify for 40 percent off the retail price for all products. Lastly, Imbue Botanicals will periodically send customers coupons, which gives customers even more discounts.
Imbue Botanicals’ Dedication to Quality
In keeping with their Earth-first philosophy, all of Imbue Botanicals’ products are grown under 100 percent organic conditions. What’s more, they are vegan, non-GMO, cruelty-free, and contain no added sugars or flavorings.
Additionally, all the industrial hemp used in Imbue Botanicals’ products is grown at high altitudes in Colorado. According to Imbue Botanicals, they’ve chosen to source all their hemp from Colorado because of the state’s progressive views on cannabis and hemp. What’s more, the high altitude, abundant water, and plentiful sunshine help to increase the hemp’s cannabinoid levels, which yields a more potent end product. Most important of all, this lets Imbue Botanicals monitor their products from seed to sale.
Also, pesticides, herbicides, and other synthetic chemicals are never used on their hemp. What’s more, all their ingredients are non-GMO, organic, and vegan. Lastly, even the packaging is recyclable.
Once the plant material is ready to be processed, Imbue Botanicals ensures they manufacture and formulate all their products in compliance with the best practices for manufacturing facilities.
Next, to ensure they extract the full spectrum of flavonoids, cannabinoids, and terpenes from the hemp, Imbue Botanicals uses ethanol derived from sugar cane to gently extract all the phytochemicals. This low-pressure and cold processing method, they believe, produces a better product than more commonly used methods like CO2 extraction.
Lastly, they do appear to make an effort to use sustainable palm oil to make the vegetable glycerin for their tinctures. The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which certifies the oil as sustainable, has come under scrutiny regarding whether their practices are actually sustainable after all. Even so, it is good to know that Imbue is doing everything they can to ensure sustainability at every stage of the process.
Imbue Botanicals Third-Party Lab Tests
Imbue Botanicals makes all its third-party lab test results available to the public here. While many CBD companies only make one certificate of analysis available, Imbue Botanicals has taken the extra step to make all their COAs available for the past year.
Conducted by Botanacor Services, the lab tests show the levels of microbial contaminants, residual solvents, and potency of each batch.
As Imbue Botanicals explains, it is very important that the information on the label matches the actual quality of the product. In other words, if a label claims that a product contains 99.77 percent CBD and 0.15 percent THC, then the third-party lab test results should support these claims.
As a last note on quality control and testing, Imbue Botanicals tests all the raw oils before they’ve been incorporated into products. This ensures the final product’s safety, quality, and consistency.

Imbue Botanicals Product Catalog
Currently, Imbue Botanicals offers the following range of CBD products.
First, we were very impressed by Imbue Botanicals’ overall site layout. The information most pertinent to customers—such as their contact page and product categories—was clearly visible and easy to find. What’s more, they have a live chat feature, which is always nice when customers need a quick answer to a question or clarification.
Next, their “Journal” page, or blog, has quite a wealth of information on CBD in general and their company.
Then, there’s the helpful sitemap. As online shoppers ourselves, there is truly nothing more frustrating than clicking through every conceivable menu for information only to find we’ve wasted half an hour. The sitemap cuts out all the guesswork, as it lays out all the pages of the site.
Lastly, we were impressed by their comprehensive and transparent batch testing page. They not only provided a current certificate of analysis but gave customers access to every certificate of analysis for the past year. This is one of the highest levels of transparency we’ve seen in a CBD company.
In summary, if you’re looking for a company that puts the well-being of their customers and the earth first, we highly recommend Imbue Botanicals.
