According to the Brightfield Research Group, Green Roads CBD is the largest privately held CBD company in the US market.
Plus, knowing that Americans spend around $40 million each year on their products, the need for a thorough, unbiased Green Roads CBD review is a no-brainer.
As for the reason behind the company’s enormous success, their co-founder Laura Fuentes is a compound pharmacist with 25+ years of experience in the field — talk about expertise!
This got our team excited, so we did an in-depth evaluation of their service and products, taking both customer and professional Green Roads CBD reviews into consideration.
Now, without further ado, let’s get the show on the road!

“Best CBD Products” (2018)
“Most Innovative Product” for the Green Roads CBD Coffee (2019)
Remedy Review Approval
Top Shelf Tea Awards
Besides quality, innovation is one of the strongest points of Green Roads CBD as we’ve summarized in this Green Roads CBD review.
Also, when looking at the product palette of Green Roads CBD, it is obvious that their product offer is concentrated mainly on CBD essentials, encompassing almost every basic type of CBD product, except for vape juices.
On the more fun and enjoyable side, Green Roads’ CBD stock offers original products on the CBD market, such as the Green Roads CBD tea and CBD-infused coffee.
However, in terms of diversity, we find that the brand is somewhat lacking in flavor choices for their CBD oil line; yet, they compensate for this negative point by having three different strengths of every offered item.
Speaking of potency and effects, Green Roads CBD products provide overall wellbeing as well as health support for:
- Physical discomfort
- Pain in joints and muscles
- Sleep regulation

Types of Green Roads CBD Oil Extracts
Finding out the type of CBD oil used in the different Green Roads CBD products was fairly simple. We absolutely loved the fact that this information was displayed in the product description so that customers were no longer forced to dig into every single CoA or professional Green Roads CBD review to verify it.
1. Full-spectrum CBD oil (hemp extract with THC content lower than 0.3%)
You can find it in:
- Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
2. Broad-spectrum CBD with undetectable THC (<0.001%)
You can find broad-spectrum CBD in:
- Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil — Original
- Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil — Apple Kiwi
- Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil — Mint Breeze
- Cool Relief CBD Roll-On
- Heat Relief CBD Roll-On
- Sleepy Z’s Gummies
- Froggie Gummies
- Sour Froggies
- Pet CBD Drops for Dogs
- Pet CBD Drops for Cats
3. CBD isolate — THC-free
(When using products with this particular type of Green Roads CBD, the drug test for THC will stay negative).
- Skin Relief Cream
- Muscle and Joint Cream
- Relax Bears Gummies
- Dark Chocolate Bar
- Fruit Bite
- Sleep Capsules
- Relax Capsules
What’s also neat is the amazing product selection with the detailed potency classification for every product. Namely, there are 3 CBD content classifications: mild, moderate, and mighty.
Green Roads CBD reviews from CBD professionals state that the unique formulas used in the products will aid the body in using the maximum amount of CBD present in said products.
This means that the presence of other cannabinoids or terpenes will make it far easier for the body to absorb CBD — the pharmacological term is bioavailability.
This is exactly why broad- and full-spectrum CBD oil is considered better than CBD isolate.
Most of the Green Roads CBD products are THC-free, and even those who contain THC have no more than 0.011% per container — which is the biggest concentration present in the full-spectrum CBD oil of 50mg/ml.
Green Roads CBD Oil Reviews — Which Product Is the Richest?
Even though it is not an effective measurement, more CBD is what everyone is after. Hence, we looked to make it easier for you to choose between different Green Roads products by displaying you the exact concentration of CBD in each and every one of them.

Green Roads CBD Oil Reviews — CoA Lab Sheets
The Certificate of Analysis (CoA) lab tests for Green Roads products are rather extensive and the results are available for every single product, including for every different batch number on their website.
The purity, potency, and quality tests conducted by Kaycha Labs (an ISO-certified, third-party entity) for the products of Green Roads CBD are fairly recent and presented in a customer-friendly way. Graphically, anyone can see exactly which tests were successfully passed.
All in all, it seems that the Green Roads CBD drug test results, or more precisely, the product test results, are proudly displayed on the website; and for good reason too!
Namely, everyone can search for the lab test results in three different ways:
- By product category
- By batch number
- By QR code (available on the product packaging)
We noticed just two measurements missing from the lab reports — the moisture and water activity tests. These two show the stability of the product, or whether there are conditions for fast degradation through the development of bacteria and molds.
Is Green Roads CBD Oil Safe?
1. Cannabinoid Content Test
The breakdown of cannabinoids content shows the potency of the CBD oil; in short, the more cannabinoids there are, the more potent the product is.
What should I expect to see in the cannabinoid test?
For full-spectrum CBD oil the results of the cannabinoids test will show:
- The total CBD content
- The total cannabinoids content
- The total THC content
- Concentrations and presence of 11 types of cannabinoids
Following the cannabinoid analysis of the broad-spectrum Green Roads CBD oil review, we can confirm that this oil is indeed THC-free; there is no detectable THC to be found as noted.
As for the CBD isolate, the CBD concentration will be equal to that of the total cannabinoids, because it will be the only cannabinoid present (or at least should be).
2. Terpenes Test
The broad- and full-spectrum Green Roads CBD oil reviews claim the presence of natural compounds of the hemp extract called terpenes, and this is confirmed by the lab results.
What is the purpose of the CBD oil terpenes?
Terpenes are responsible for the plant’s aroma. Yet, for CBD products, they can also modify the rate of absorption and the overall potency of the product.
The synergy between the terpenes and the CBD oil is also known as the “entourage effect.”
Moreover, Green Roads lab tests inspect 38 different terpenes, but sometimes, in their mild CBD products, the amounts of terpenes are so small that they can’t be detected.
Terpenes are present in all products infused with full- and broad-spectrum Green Roads CBD in stock, as well as the Green Roads CBD bath bombs, giving them a natural scent.
1. Pesticide Analysis
An extensive analysis of 60 pesticides related to hemp cultivation, conducted in the Green Roads CBD lab tests to ensure the product’s purity.
2. Residual Solvent Analysis
Every batch is tested for 21 solvent residuals that are used in the process of hemp oil extraction.
Some of these solvent residuals can be toxic to the human body — hence why it’s of the utmost importance that none of these is present in the batch in order to get a positive Green Roads CBD review.
3. Mycotoxin Analysis
Mycotoxins are chemicals produced by molds and yeasts which are harmful to the human body. The Green Road CBD mycotoxin test is run for 5 of the most harmful mycotoxins.
4. Microbial Analysis
One of the most important purity tests is the microbial test, which proves that there are no pathogen bacteria or yeasts present in the batch. The Green Roads CBD lab test shows the absence of 4 types of Aspergillus, Shiga-toxin producing E. coli, and Salmonella.
5. Heavy Metals Analysis
This test detects the eventual presence of arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead in the product.
As you can see, the prices range from $4.75 for a 25mg Froggie gummy (0.5 oz or 14g) to $149.99 for a full-spectrum CBD oil with a concentration of 50mg/ml.

Selected Product Green Roads CBD Reviews
1. Broad Spectrum CBD Oil (50 mg/ml)
Product name: Broad-Spectrum CBD Oil — Mighty
Available in: 30ml bottle (1fl oz)
Best fitted for:
- CBD lovers that are searching for potent CBD effects from an all-natural product with original taste
- Those looking for the broad-spectrum Green Roads CBD oil of 550 mg because this is its “descendent” product
CBD oil type: broad-spectrum
Other ingredients: glycerin, MCT oil sunflower lecithin, sunflower seed oil, and hemp seed oil
User advice: there is no restriction in the amount that you can use; it all depends on your CBD experience. You should place the desired amount on your tongue or under, and wait for at least 30 seconds before swallowing
Consumer rating: 4.7 (out of 1,146 reviews)
Containing a total of 1500mg of CBD, this broad-spectrum CBD oil can help relieve everyday stress and chronic pain.
This CBD oil is also the replacing product of the broad-spectrum Green Roads CBD oil of 1500mg, and currently, the most potent of the whole broad-spectrum Green Roads collection. Hence, it is not really advisable for CBD beginners. Other same-line, but less potent products, like the CBD oil of 10mg and 25mg, will probably do the trick for those just starting off with CBD.
What do the customers say?
Around 90% of users have rated this product with the highest possible mark. Many of those suffering from fibromyalgia and arthritis claim experiencing pain relief. Others report lower stress levels and a soothing effect.
Comments regarding the potency are very present in customer testimonials, claiming immediate results from taking this CBD oil.
On the negative side, some customer comments on the Green Roads CBD oil of 550 mg reveal that they have a hard time tolerating the natural taste of the product. Another frequent remark is the apparently complicated use of the dropper, as well as the thick consistency of the oil.
However, this last one refers to the old packaging, which is now reformed to a so-called plunger system.
- suitable for the vegan diet
- natural flavor
- natural coloring
2. CBD Muscle and Joint Relief Cream — 350mg
Product name: Green Roads CBD Muscle and Joint Cream — 350mg
Available in: 1oz (30g) pump applicator

Other ingredients: safflower oleosomes, bentonite clay, glycerin, avocado oil, xanthan gum, cucumber fruit extract, chamomile extract, phenoxyethanol, lavender oil, vitamin E, benzyl alcohol, menthol, and dehydroacetic acid
User advice: For topical use only.
There is no restriction in the amount of cream that can be used on the painful spot or sore muscle.
It can be reapplied every 4–6 hours if needed.
Green Roads CBD pain cream reviews rating: 4.7 (out of 26 reviews)
This cream’s formula is designed to relieve painful, and sore, muscles and joints, as well as other physical discomforts related to pain.
Many of the ingredients are effective in skin hydration, and are necessary to give the right consistency of the cream.
The bentonite clay featured can act as a toxin remover, and the Chamomile extract will enhance the calming effect on the sore area.
What do the customers say?
The majority of customers gave 5 or 4 stars for this product, and most are happy with the effect of this cream containing Green Roads CBD oil of 350 mg, reviews show.
Many of them also say that they feel the soothing effects almost immediately.
Some users are happy with the mild scent, and for some, this is a negative aspect of the cream.
On the other hand, some of the Green roads CBD cream reviews reveal that users are indecisive when it comes to picking one of the CBD topical products that this brand offers.
- not tested on animals
- natural coloring
- mild scent
3. Green Roads CBD Froggies Review
Product name: 50mg Froggie — On The Go (14grams)
Available also in: 25mg, 50mg (1ct), and 100mg (4ct) in sweet and sour flavors.
Best fitted for:
- Those who seek a powerful dose of 50mg CBD to cope with pain, stress, anxiety, and low energy levels on a daily basis.
- People that want to make CBD part of their daily routine, but are too busy to consume CBD oil with a dropper.
- For all of those who don’t like the natural taste of CBD and prefer a sugary treat instead.
CBD oil type: broad-spectrum with non-detectable THC content
Other ingredients: there is no ingredient list available, but it contains sugars in the coating
User advice: as per the Green Roads CBD reviews from the customers, this product can be taken in accordance with the customers’ wishes and experience (since there is no indication of the CBD dosage on the website).
Consumer rating: 4.6 (out of 214 reviews)
This 14g CBD-infused gummy will turn even the biggest CBD skeptics into staunch believers of the wellness effects of CBD. Also, 50mg is a potent dose, which explains the single gummy packaging.
What do the customers say?
One Green Roads CBD edible review for this Froggie states that the dose keeps them focused and alert, and another user claims to have a sound, pain-free night’s rest after a knee injury thanks to this gummy.
Conversely, those following a strict, non-sugar diet should keep in mind that with this gummy they will be breaking the rules, but for exactly how much we couldn’t tell. These types of gummies require a detailed ingredient list that will also unveil the intake of calories, which according to our judgment should be an obligatory part of every CBD gummies Green Roads review.
- High-potency products
- CoA available for every product
- Up to 30 days money-back guarantee
- Fast delivery times
- CBD coffee and tea
- Comprehensive information on the website
- Exchange policy available for damaged products
- Lacks different flavors of CBD oils

All of this, plus the high doses of CBD, seem to almost effortlessly turn website visitors into customers. The fast and guaranteed undamaged product delivery is also a plus.
All-in-all, through this exhaustive Green Roads CBD review the brand has proven many times over that if what you’re selling is effective, customers will buy it no matter the price.
Is Green Roads CBD FDA approved?
Green Roads products have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The only FDA approved CBD oil on the market is the medicine called Epidiolex.
Is Green Roads CBD oil safe?
Judging by the results of the laboratory testing for purity, potency, and non-toxicity that were made by third-party laboratories, Green Roads CBD is safe for use.
The CoA tests include many parameters that test the purity, quality, and potency of the CBD oil. Furthermore, the tests are recently made and available for consultation to everybody on the official website.
Nevertheless, remember that CBD oil effects may vary and that we all have individual endocannabinoid systems.
Does Green Roads CBD get you high?
No, of course not. Products with CBD isolate contain only CBD; THC has been removed during the manufacturing process.
Broad-spectrum products have less than 0.001% THC, which is by no means enough to have any psychoactive effects on you whatsoever.
If taken as instructed, the full-spectrum CBD oil-infused products will not get you “high” either, since they contain THC well below the legal limit (<0.3%).
What does Green Roads CBD oil do?
CBD affects the body as a powerful anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory drug. It also has a calming effect on the body, so it protects the body from stress and many stress-induced conditions. Some take CBD as a precaution, to boost their overall health, and others use it for specific health conditions like insomnia, anxiety, ADHD, pain, physical discomfort, and other medical indications.
