Review Summary (☆☆☆ 2.8/5)
Irwin Naturals is an established herbal supplement company that recently branched out into the CBD market. It offers a wide lineup including full-spectrum CBD oils, capsules, skincare products, beverages, and even foods.
The company claims to use American hemp but doesn’t provide an exact source. Also, although Irwin Naturals seems to test its products at a third-party lab, the results of these tests are only available with the lot number you get from purchasing a product.
On top of that, there’s a lack of detailed info about the company and its CBD products on the Irwin Naturals website.
Bottom line: You should avoid Irwin Naturals. Although it’s an established supplement brand, it’s not transparent enough to be considered a high-quality CBD company.
Product Lineup 4/5
Irwin Naturals popular CBD product types, including tinctures, capsules, skincare products, beverages, and foods. However, it loses a point for not offering THC-free options.
Hemp Quality 1/5
We don’t know too much about the company’s hemp source. It doesn’t specify where in the United States the hemp is grown and whether it’s organic and non-GMO.
Third-Party Testing 2.5/5
Irwin Naturals’ products undergo comprehensive third-party testing. Unfortunately, the results of these tests are not available unless you have a lot number from a purchased product. On top of that, the test reports provide few details and don’t list the name of the testing lab.
Arguably the biggest reason people turn to Irwin Naturals is because it offers some of the lowest prices per mg of CBD on the market.
Customer Service & Reputation 2/5
Irwin Naturals is a well-known name in the supplement industry. However, they don’t have much of a reputation as a CBD brand. On top of that, their customer service is not the most helpful and takes a long time to respond.

About the Company: Irwin Naturals
Established in 1994, Irwin Naturals is one of the largest herbal supplement brands in the United States. It recently expanded into CBD, offering full-spectrum CBD oil tinctures, balms, softgel capsules, skincare products, and CBD-infused beverages and foods.
These products are derived from USA-grown hemp and undergo extensive third-party testing.
The most unique aspect of the company is its CBD-infused herbal softgels, which essentially combine standard supplement ingredients that Irwin Naturals has been offering for decades, such as turmeric, L-theanine, ginkgo, and ashwagandha, with CBD.
Irwin Naturals CBD Products Lineup
Irwin Naturals has a wide range of products, including CBD oil tinctures, topical balms, capsules, skincare products, and CBD-infused edibles and drinks.
Although they’re missing some popular product categories such as CBD vape juice, there’s a lot to like about Irwin Naturals’ products:
- According to the company, all of its CBD offerings are made with full-spectrum CBD. This means they contain not only CBD but other cannabinoids (including <0.3% THC), terpenes, flavonoids, and other beneficial compounds. This makes them more effective than products made with pure CBD (CBD isolate) because of the entourage effect (1).
- The products are available in multiple potencies. This makes it easier to find the right CBD strength to match your dosage preferences.
- There are multiple flavor options for Irwin Naturals’ CBD oil. People who like a raw product can go with the unflavored option, while those who find the taste of hemp extract too strong can opt for a flavored version.
- The products have low prices.
Here’s a a more detailed look at the CBD products offered by Irwin Naturals:
- CBD Oils: Full-spectrum tinctures with a CBD potency of 8.3 mg or 33.3 mg/ml. Come in 30 ml bottles with unflavored, lemon, peppermint, mint chocolate, or tangerine flavors.
- CBD Softgels: Full-spectrum CBD capsules containing 10 mg, 15 mg, 30, or 50 mg per softgel. Total of 60 softgels per bottle.
- CBD Balms: Full-spectrum topical product with a CBD potency of 4.5 mg, 8.9 mg, or 17.9 mg/ml. Formulated with natural, standard skincare ingredients such as beeswax, elderberry, and aloe vera. Scented with lemongrass blue tansy oil.
- CBD + Softgels: Irwin Naturals’ full-spectrum CBD softgels infused with extra botanical ingredients such as probiotics, botanicals, and vitamins. This is one of the most unique CBD product types we’ve come across.
- FloChi CBD Drinks & Edibles: Separate line of CBD-infused beverages and edibles such as tea, coffee, chocolate, and peanut butter.
- HydroCanna Skincare: Separate line of CBD-infused skincare products, such as cleansers, creams, and moisturizers.

Price-wise, Irwin Naturals’ CBD products have an exceptionally low cost, which explains why many people turn to this brand. The main product categories – CBD oil tinctures, softgels, and balms – cost only $0.02–0.14 per mg of CBD, which is well below the market average.
The company’s CBD food & drink and skincare brands (FloChi and HydroCanna) also offer exceptionally low prices when compared to similar products.
Having said that, we don’t think you’re getting the greatest value with Irwin Naturals due to the company’s lack of transparency.
Hemp Source and Extraction Process
Irwin Naturals’ products are derived from hemp cultivated in the United States. However, the company doesn’t explain whether this hemp is organic and non-GMO.
Furthermore, it doesn’t specify which particular U.S. state the hemp comes from, which is also helpful to know as the best hemp in the United States is grown in Colorado, Kentucky, and Oregon.
As for the extraction process, Irwin Naturals uses carbon dioxide (CO2), the gold standard method of producing whole-plant hemp extracts.
Irwin Naturals’ CBD products undergo comprehensive third-party testing for potency and the presence of contaminants such as heavy metals, bacteria, and pesticides.
These tests appear to confirm that the company does indeed use full-spectrum hemp extracts rather than pure CBD to formulate its products.
Unfortunately, Irwin Naturals is not very transparent about these tests.
For one thing, aside from one sample test, you can’t look up the third-party reports unless you have the lot number that comes with the product.
This is a huge minus because it means you can’t check the third-party test results before you purchase a CBD product from Irwin Naturals to confirm its authenticity.
Furthermore, Irwin Naturals’ third-party Certificate of Analysis (CoA) documents are not as detailed as most other companies and don’t clearly list the name of the third-party lab, which also raises some doubts.
Shipping and Customer Service
Irwin Naturals ships throughout the United States for $6.95 and offers free shipping on orders over $49.
As for customer service, we emailed the company to see their third-party lab test reports prior to purchasing a product.
They responded four days later and didn’t provide a helpful answer, telling us to view a page that requires you to purchase an item before seeing the test results. All in all, we think their customer service has room for improvement.
Our Recommendation: Avoid Irwin Naturals
Despite having over 25 years of experience in the supplement market, we don’t recommend Irwin Naturals as a CBD brand.
Although it provides what appears to be third-party tested CBD at exceptionally low prices, the company falls short in several key areas. Most importantly, its third-party lab test results aren’t accessible unless you purchase a product.
This prevents us from confirming the potency and safety of its CBD products before purchasing them. Irwin Naturals also doesn’t clearly list the name of the lab that does its independent testing.
On top of that, Irwin Naturals doesn’t provide many details about its CBD manufacturing process, such as which state the hemp comes from and whether it’s organic or not.
Lastly, the CBD section of its site provides too little information about the products and CBD as a whole. For example, Irwin Naturals fails to clearly list the potency of its CBD oil and there’s little educational info about CBD.
All in all, Irwin Naturals needs to be more transparent and provide more information to be considered a top-tier CBD brand. For now, it’s better to stick to more reputable CBD companies.
