Overview and brand reputation

7/10

Vitalife is a fairly new company we came across in our research, so their reputation isn’t quite established just yet. We weren’t sure what to expect when we decided to check them out. They are Colorado-based, have a sharp-looking website, and a very solid full-spectrum hemp product for a newcomer to the CBD space. They are doing all the right things, and doing them well.

Source and extraction method

10/10

Vitalife chooses the best possible hemp cannabis for its tinctures. It’s locally grown and hand-harvested in Colorado and Kentucky, two of the states that are legally allowed to grow hemp in North America. It's non-GMO, pesticide-free, and bred for higher CBD content. The cannabinoid content is extracted via the supercritical CO2 method, which is one of the cleanest and most sophisticated ways to pull CBD and other cannabinoid contents from the plant. The extract is then “winterized” so that the plant waxes and unwanted solids are removed, and decarboxylated (to turn CBDa into CBD so it can be absorbed in the body), leaving the concentrated cannabinoid oil for use in the tincture.

Visual assessment

9/10

Vitalife has a visually appealing, almost floral-patterned logo that subtly quotes the cannabis plant with smart design that doesn’t come off as too aggressive. The label includes all the necessary information about how much CBD is in the tincture along with other occurring cannabinoids (including THC content), and comes with the standard warnings. The oil itself is of medium viscosity, deep yellow, and definitely has a natural “herbal” smell, but we like that as it’s nice to be in touch with what you’re putting into your body. The outer packaging was simple and clean and the product was shipped with standard care.

Cannabinoid content

9/10

According to the lab test, this tincture has 36.45 mg/ml of CBD, which means that there’s actually a little above the 500 mg labeled on the bottle (546.75 mg, to be precise). This product does contain THC, but it’s well in the safe under-0.3% zone, with 0.2%. There are also trace amounts of CBDV, CBG, CBC, CBDa, and CBGa in the tincture, along with naturally occurring terpenes (which probably give it its distinct odor and taste).

Lab tests

9/10

Vitalife makes tests readily available on their website, and uses third-party testing. They offer one standard lab test for their products, instead of allowing purchasers to request specific batch tests, which costs them a point with us. Their labs are very comprehensive, covering cannabinoids as well as a full liquid chromatography/mass spectrometer pesticide panel.

Other ingredients/additives

10/10

Vitalife’s CBD tincture is made with coconut MCT oil and extracted hemp oil. There are no other additives. Their lab test shows passing levels on all pesticides.

Taste

9/10

We recognize that taste is largely subjective. Vitalife’s CBD tincture tastes exactly like what it is—you can smell and taste the terpenes of the hemp plant along with a hint of the coconut oil. It has an herbal, pungent aroma and flavor that lingers in the mouth briefly after swallowing. We test the oil by taking it sublingually, and do not mix it with anything, but it would mix fine into a beverage of your choice. We like the “au natural” approach Vitalife has taken in letting the product taste like itself and not masking it with any other flavoring agents.

Value

9/10

Vitalife’s pricing is competitive with other tinctures in the CBD space. At $74.95 per 15 ml bottle of 500 mg tincture, it’s certainly not the cheapest option available, but you get what you pay for, and this is a solid, high-quality product. Where you get max value from Vitalife, though, is if you buy in larger quantities—you can get 3 bottles for the price of 2 ($149.90), or 5 for the price of 3 ($224.85). These seem to be standard/regular deals and not limited-time-only specials. Vitalife seems to offer regular discount coupons and specials on top of this, too.

Guarantees/discounts/shipping:

9/10

All the bases are covered here. There’s a 30-day hassle-free refund policy if you’re not satisfied with the product. There are regular discounts/coupons, as well as tiered pricing if you purchase larger quantities of the tincture (see above). No free shipping—standard rates apply.

Customer service

10/10

This is where Vitalife really shines. Perhaps it’s because they are a new company and trying to make the best impression, but we tested them and they seem to really care about their product and their customers. We made ourselves a nuisance with a made-up “issue” and called their customer service line. We promptly received a call back and the gentleman on the phone was incredibly polite and eager to help us. He made sure to tend to our concerns and spent as much time on the phone as was needed. There was no feeling of someone trying to make a quick sale or upsell us on anything. We hope Vitalife keeps it up, they probably have the most superior customer care we’ve seen so far.

TOTAL

91/100

Vitalife is one of our top CBD tincture choices. They are a growing company and still developing their reputation, but we love what we’ve experienced so far. Their natural approach is something we stand behind, and they use the highest-quality American-grown hemp for their oil, along with a superior method of extraction. Their customer service is top-notch. They know how to keep it simple and do a few things really well, as opposed to some companies that offer every CBD product under the sun. Most important, their tincture works! For us, the anti-stress effects of their CBD oil were noticeable after just one or two uses (dosage dependent, of course), and sleep benefits were noticeable as well. We’re looking forward to watching this company grow and we hope we can keep Vitalife at the top of our list.
