13 CBD Brands To Have On Your Radar

By now, you've probably heard a thing or two (but probably more) about CBD, the breakout wellness ingredient that everyone's obsessed with. Whether consumed in gummy, tincture, oil, or capsule form, cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive compound derived from either cannabis or hemp plants that'll heal all your ills without getting you high. (Supposedly.)

"If you're part of a social media community that really supports the idea that CBD is amazing for anxiety, that means those products are actually going to be more effective for you, because they're in line with your beliefs," Dr. Drew Ramsay, an integrative psychiatrist, previously told Refinery29. "But it doesn’t mean they’ll treat an underlying anxiety disorder."


And while these products might very well have a positive effect on your wellbeing, it's important to remember that they're unregulated by the FDA and not legal in all 50 states. That's why it's important to do your research about all of the different options out there, and familiarize yourself with the rules where you live. Still, that hasn't stopped many from hopping on the CBD train and reporting near-magical results.

Here, we take a closer look at 13 brands to check out in case you're completely new to the trend or want to add a new product to your rotation.

At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.

This company utilizes a proprietary strain of organic, hemp-derived CBD grown in Colorado with a 1:1 ratio of cannabinoids and terpenes, aromatic chemicals found in plants, herbs, and fruit that naturally elevate the product's sensorial experience.

Sunday Scaries

San Diego-based brand Sunday Scaries sources the CBD in their feel-good gummies, candies, and tinctures directly from family-owned hemp farms in Colorado. They also include vitamins B12 and D3 in every product to support a healthy immune system.


While many CBD brands don't own or operate the farms that actually grow the good green stuff, Vermont-based Sunsoil does. As such, a major aspect of the company's ethos is centered on transparency during every step of their production journey from "seed to shelf".

Plant People

Tinctures dropped underneath your tongue are commonly regarded as the best method to instantly feel the effects of CBD, since they're directly absorbed into your bloodstream. NYC-based Plant People uses locally-sourced CBD from the Hudson Valley in their products, with a portion of every sale benefitting American Forests, a non-profit organization that supports the conservation of healthy forests.


If you've got a thing for the fancy stuff, then you probably already own one of Beboe's sleek, rose gold CBD pens, which combines pure hemp-derived CBD with citrus terpenes for a totally relaxing experience.


You already subscribe to Netflix and Amazon Prime...why not add a CBD oil to the mix? If you swear by CBD on the regular, a monthly subscription service like the one offered by Feals is an easy way to save some cash. (They knock 30% off the sticker price with your monthly order.)

Standard Dose

As the name suggests, Standard Dose has a focus on education when it comes to schooling people on all things CBD, including what dose works best for them — which yes, varies among everyone.

CBD For Life

Beauty and wellness brand CBD For Life offers a range of flavored and unflavored tinctures, in addition to options for every step in your hair and skin-care routine.

Lord Jones

Don't let the luxe packaging fool you — Lord Jones' extensive range of gummies (the best you've ever tasted, bar none), chocolates, tinctures, capsules, and skin-care products (some of which you can snag at Sephora, BTW) are among the most potent CBD items around. (Not to mention, they make super pretty gifts.)

These edibles are made with European fruit essences and a broad spectrum CBD extract, and their topicals are developed in partnership with a team of experts to ensure that the brand's claims live up to the reality.

Modern Nature

At $50 for 60 capsules, Modern Nature's high quality products aren't just affordable — they're designed to make finding solutions to common issues such as sleep, anxiety, and pain super easy.

Pure Ratios

Pure Ratios' approach to CBD is rooted at the crossroads of herbalism and cutting-edge scientific research. While they offer capsules, topicals, and vapes, if you suffer from chronic muscle pain (or simply went a little too hard during your gym sesh), a topical CBD patch offers targeted relief right where it's needed.


Equilibria offers discounted bundle options at three tiered levels, while allowing you to experience CBD in a variety of delivery methods: Softgels, drops, and skin care. Plus, the company offers personalized dosage support via an e-concierge service so you can work to create a bespoke box with products and amounts that work best for you.
