Product Lineup 4.5/5

Kiara Naturals has a diverse lineup that includes CBD oil, multi-ingredient tinctures and capsules, topicals, gummies, and vape products. But it’s missing standard CBD capsules and bigger CBD oil bottles.

Price 4/5

Most of Kiara Naturals’ products are priced below the market average, especially those that contain added botanical ingredients. There’s also free shipping to many countries.

Hemp Quality 4.5/5

The company grows its organic hemp in Switzerland, which is certified by Bio-Suisse, the country’s leading organic agriculture organization.

Third-Party Testing 4/5

Kiara Naturals products are tested for potency and contaminants but the results are not available without a batch number or emailing the company.

Customer Service & Reputation 4.5/5

Although Kiara is a relatively young brand, the customer reviews on its website, Facebook, and Google pages are overwhelmingly positive. The company also has a customer-friendly 60 day money-back policy.

Kiara Naturals Overview

Headquartered in the Swiss village of Gais, Kiara Naturals is a CBD brand founded in 2019.

Its founders have been formulating cannabis and other plant-based health products since 2005, with a strong focus on traditional herbal remedies. That’s why many of Kiara’s products contain medicinal herbs and mushrooms, such as ginger, ginseng, echinacea, elderberry, valerian, and reishi.

The company grows and extracts its organic hemp in the alpine Swiss region of Appenzellerland and formulates and packages its products under GMP standards in a local factory.

The finished products are tested by a third-party lab to verify their levels of CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids. Kiara is also unique for shipping internationally for free (or a low price), making it a great option for countries like Australia.

CBD Terminology

  • Terpenes: aromatic plant compounds with a wide variety of beneficial properties (1).
  • Minor cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBC, and other beneficial cannabinoids found in smaller amounts in hemp. They work in synergy with CBD, enhancing its effects.
  • Hemp: non-intoxicating cannabis variety with high CBD and low THC levels (less than 0.3%).
  • Full-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract containing multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This form of CBD is about 4 times more potent than pure CBD (2).
  • Broad-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract similar to full-spectrum CBD, but with THC removed (may contain trace amounts).
  • CBD isolate: pure CBD with all other hemp compounds removed.

Kiara Naturals CBD Product Lineup

Kiara Naturals has a fairly comprehensive product lineup that includes different types of CBD oil, capsules, topicals, gummies, and vape products. What makes the company’s products stand out is the addition of other botanical ingredients like herbs, mushrooms, and vitamins.

The Kiara Naturals products I received and tested for my honest review.

I received samples of the 30% CBD oil, pain relief tincture, and muscle & joint cream to test out.

CBD Oil

Kiara Naturals offers three types of CBD oil: full-spectrum CBD oil, full-spectrum CBG + CBD oil, and pure CBD oil. Third-party tests confirm that these CBD oils contain the right cannabinoids.

Full-Spectrum CBD Oil

CBD Potency100-300 mg/ml
Volume10 ml
Total CBD1000–3000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.05–0.06
TypeFull-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

Kiara’s flagship product is its full-spectrum CBD oil, which is available in three high potencies: 10% (100 mg/ml), 20% (200 mg/ml), and 30% (300 mg/ml). It would be nice to have more minor cannabinoids in this tincture, as the third-party tests show 7% and 10+% is preferred. I’d also like to see 30 ml bottles added.

My experience: I tried out the 30% oil, which wasn’t as strong as expected but had noticeable effects that kicked in after about 15 minutes and helped me fall into a deep sleep.

Full-Spectrum CBG+CBD Oil

4.5/5

CBD/CBG Potency150 mg/ml
Volume10 ml
Total CBD500 mg CBG + 1000 mg CBD
Cost per mg$0.05
TypeFull-spectrum
Third-Party TestNot available

Additionally, Kiara Naturals offers full-spectrum CBD oils with high levels of cannabigerol (CBG), another beneficial minor cannabinoid. These 10 ml bottles contain 1000 mg of full-spectrum CBD with either 500 mg of CBG, giving them a high potency of 150 mg/ml.

Pure CBD Oil

4.5/5

CBD Potency100-300 mg/ml
Volume10 ml
Total CBD1000–3000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.05–0.06
TypeIsolate
Third-Party TestNot available

Kirana Naturals also has a flavorless pure CBD isolate version of its regular full-spectrum oil. It comes in the same three strength options: 100, 200, or 300 mg/ml, for a total of 1000-3000 mg of pure CBD isolate.

Multi-Ingredient Tinctures

True to its claims, Kiara Naturals also offers alcohol-based tinctures infused with other medicinal herbs and mushrooms. These come in three formulations: pain, sleep & relax, and winter care.

Instead of being used under the tongue, they’re meant to be added to water or other beverages or taken on their own. This is one of the most unique CBD products I’ve come across. 

Did you know? By definition, a tincture is any preparation where the active ingredient is dissolved in alcohol. But CBD products often use this term even when the CBD is dissolved in oil.

Pain Relief Tincture

4/5

CBD Potency10 mg/ml
Volume100 ml
Total CBD1000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.08
TypeIsolate
Third-Party TestNot available

The pain relief tincture contains CBD blended with alcohol and five medicinal herbs: ginger, corydalis yanhusuo, angelica sinensis, angelica arc, and zanthoxylum. These herbs have a long history of traditional use and have shown pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects in research studies (1).

The tincture has a low CBD potency and is meant to be used in larger doses.

My experience: I took 5 full droppers when I was feeling a bit sick and sore from working out and felt a little relief within 40 minutes. The tincture has a strong taste from the alcohol which is why it’s recommended to mix it with a drink.

Sleep & Relax Tincture

4/5

CBD Potency10 mg/ml
Volume100 ml
Total CBD1000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.08

Similar to the pain tincture, the sleep and relax tincture contains 1000 mg of pure CBD alongside four research-backed herbs traditionally used to relieve anxiety and promote sleep: valerian (2), California poppy, hops, and ziziphus jujuba. I like the multi-ingredient formula but it would be better with full-spectrum CBD.

Winter Care Tincture

4.5/5

CBD PotencyN/A
Volume100 ml

Kiara Naturals’ winter care tincture is designed to boost immunity. It doesn’t contain CBD but carries seven research-backed immunity-boosting and pathogen-fighting ingredients: echinacea (3), elderberry, thyme, ginger, baptisia tinctoria (wild indigo), and bee propolis.

Capsules

Kiara Naturals also offers two types of multi-ingredient herbal capsules: brain boost and body boost.

CBD Brain Boost Capsules

4.5/5

CBD/CBG Potency20 mg

Total CBD/CBG1200 mg

Kiara Naturals’ brain boost capsules are another unique product.

It combines 20 mg of pure CBD and CBG with five research-backed herbs meant to improve focus, memory, and overall cognitive performance: korean ginseng, bacopa monnieri (4), passionflower, ginger, licorice, and gotu kola. There are a total of 60 capsules per bottle.

These wild-lime flavored gummies contain 10 mg of pure CBD each plus multiple vitamins and minerals.

CBD Topicals

Kiara Naturals offers three topical products: a salve and two creams. Each is designed for a specific purpose.

CBD Muscle and Joint Salve

5/5

CBD Potency20 mg/ml
Volume50 ml
Total CBD1000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.07
TypeFull-spectrum
Third-Party TestNot available

The muscle and joint salve is formulated to alleviate pain. It has a fairly high CBD potency for a topical (20 mg/ml) and contains herbs used for pain and inflammation, including arnica oil, common rue oil, andiroba, camphor (6), hypericum, menthol, and rosemary.

My experience: The salve has a refreshing minty fragrance and feels greasy on the fingers. I applied it to my sore knees after working out and felt cooling relief within a few minutes. I gave it to a friend with arthritis and she said it was helpful.

CBD Dermacure Cream

CBD/CBG Potency40 mg/ml
Volume30 ml
Total CBD/CBG~1200 mg (CBD+CBG)
Cost per mg CBD$0.05
TypeIsolate (CBD+CBG)
Third-Party TestNot available

Meanwhile, the dermacure cream is designed to help with psoriasis, eczema, and other inflammatory skin issues. 

It contains ~1200 mg of pure CBD and CBG alongside herbal ingredients that reduce inflammation and promote skin repair: Indigofera, Menthol, Centella Asiatica, Scutellaria, Coptis, Vitamin-E, and Stellaria media. I like the high potency, low price, and multi-ingredient formula of this topical.

CBD Skin Aid Cream

Finally, the skin aid cream contains 1000 mg of pure CBD plus herbal ingredients meant to repair the skin and reduce blemishes and scarring: Aloe Vera Gel, Stellaria media, Hypericum, Obliphica, Echinacea, Coptis, Vitamin-E, Lavender, and Boswellia.

CBD Distillate Vape

If you’re interested in vaping CBD for instant, powerful effects, Kiara Naturals offers a reusable vape pen made with full-spectrum CBD distillate.

4.5/5

CBD Potency550 mg/ml
Volume0.5 ml
Total CBD~275 mg (~550 mg for refills)
Cost per mg CBD$0.21 ($0.11 for refills)
TypeFull-spectrum
Third-Party TestNot available

The company’s refillable CBD vape pen comes with a 0.5 ml pod containing 275 mg of full-spectrum CBD distillate and a USB charger. That’s a potency of 550 mg/ml: one of the highest I’ve come across for a CBD vape product.

I also like that it contains significant amounts of minor cannabinoids like a proper full-spectrum product. Kiara also sells two refill vape pods providing a total of 550 mg of CBD for when your pod runs out.

Product Kits

Kiara also sells bundles of multiple products for various goals, like the immunity kit with the winter tincture and body capsules.

Price

The easiest way to compare the prices of different CBD products to see if you’re getting a good deal is to divide the total cost by the amount of CBD. For example, if you have a 1500 mg CBD oil that costs $100, its price per mg would be 100/1500 = $0.07. 

For Kiara Naturals, these prices are close to or slightly below the market average:

  • $0.05–0.06 per mg for CBD oil
  • $0.05 per mg for capsules
  • $0.05–0.07 per mg for topicals
  • $0.21 per mg for a reusable vape pen

I’m particularly impressed by the company’s brain boost capsules and topicals, which provide many additional herbal ingredients at a great price. All in all, you’re getting a good deal with Kiara Naturals.

Hemp Source and Extraction Process

Kiara Naturals sources its products from organic hemp grown in the Swiss Alps. This hemp is certified by Bio Suisse, the country’s leading organic agriculture organization. But I would like more details about the cultivation process.

Kiara Naturals uses carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction to isolate CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes from hemp. This method is widely used in the CBD industry because of its safety, effectiveness, and environmental friendliness. 

Third-Party Testing 

Kiara Naturals’ CBD products are tested by CBD Test, a Swiss third-party cannabis testing lab. The potency tests show the levels of CBD and other cannabinoids in the company’s products, confirming that they contain the right type and amount of cannabinoids.

Meanwhile, the contaminant tests verify the lack of heavy metals, residual solvents, pesticides, and toxins.

However, the test results are only available with your product batch number or by emailing Kiara, which is a minus.

Third-Party Test Results

We always look at third-party lab test results to confirm that CBD companies sell safe and accurate products. We check:

  • The levels of CBD, which should be within 10% of the label (7)
  • The levels of minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBC
  • The levels of THC
  • Whether the CBD type (full, broad-spectrum, or isolate) is accurate
  • Whether there are any contaminants

Here’s a closer look at two test report certificates of analysis (CoAs):

  • The 10% full-spectrum CBD oil, which shows multiple cannabinoids and 10.6% CBD, which is only 6% higher
  • The sleep & relax tincture, which should have 1% (1000 mg) of pure CBD and actually has 1.02% (1020 mg), only 2% more

These potency results are solid and up-to-date, confirming that the products contain the right amount and type of CBD extracts. The contaminant tests I looked at also showed clean results.

The only downside is that I couldn’t access the third-party reports without emailing the company. But Kiara is planning to make all of its third-party tests publicly available in the coming months.

Shipping & Returns

Kiara Naturals offers free 2-4 day shipping for the UK, Ireland, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, and free 5-10 day shipping to Canada and the United States.

For other countries, there’s a standard shipping cost of $9.99-15 with a delivery time of 8-20 days, although free shipping is available for orders over $160. It’s also one of the only CBD brands that ship to Australia.

The packages are discreet and make no mention of CBD. Kiara Naturals also has a 60-day refund policy if you’re not satisfied with your product or if it’s damaged or missing.

Customer Service & Reputation

Despite being a fairly young company, Kiara Naturals has many positive customer reviews on its website, Facebook, and Google. These reviews frequently mention the company’s excellent customer service and effective products.

The company also answered all of my questions promptly via email.

The Verdict: Kiara Naturals Lives Up To the Swiss Reputation

Switzerland is synonymous with high-quality products and Kiara Naturals lives up to that reputation.

I particularly recommend this brand if you’re looking for a multi-ingredient product suited for a specific goal, like sleep or pain relief. It’s also a great option for countries with limited CBD product options, like Australia.

The company uses an impressive range of evidence-based, time-tested herbs and mushrooms that work in combination with CBD. Kiara Naturals’ prices are also below-average, especially when we consider the cheap or free shipping options.

Having said that, the company does have room to improve. It needs to make the third-party test results directly available so you can check them before buying. There are also issues with inaccurate product labels and it would be nice to see regular CBD capsules added.
