Naturecan is a global CBD company founded in the UK that offers everything from CBD oil to topical products. I tested its CBD oil, gummies, capsules, and cookies. Unfortunately, they weren’t very effective.


Although Naturecan is a decent option for countries where CBD is difficult to access, its products have fairly weak effects.


  • Diverse variety of products and strengths
  • Rare products like cookies and vapes available
  • Extensive third-party testing
  • Ships worldwide at reasonable rates


  • Low minor cannabinoids in most products
  • Outdated third-party tests
  • No full-spectrum products

Overall Rating: 3.8/5

Products 3/5
Although Naturecan offers an impressive variety of CBD products, the ones I tested were weak.
Price & Value 3.5/5
Naturecan’s prices are below the market average. But the value is just okay because the products aren’t very effective.
Hemp Quality 4/5
Naturecan uses organic hemp grown in Oregon, which is a good quality source. But it doesn’t provide proof of organic certification.
Third-Party Testing 3.5/5
The company provides potency & purity test results, proving its products are safe and accurate. But the levels of minor cannabinoids are low, some products are missing tests, and the tests are outdated.
Customer Service & Reputation 5/5
Naturecan is a transparent company backed by mostly positive customer reviews. It also donates to environmental and humanitarian causes.

Naturecan Overview

Naturecan is a British CBD company with worldwide shipping. It was founded in 2019 by British entrepreneurs Andrew Duckworth (ex-CEO of sports nutrition brand Myprotein) and Paul Finnegan.

Naturecan differs from most CBD vendors because it’s a truly global brand, shipping products worldwide and operating separate websites in major markets like the UK, US, Australia, and Japan. In fact, it has over 40 separate websites for different countries.

Some of Naturecan’s products are only available in certain countries, and it also sells non-CBD supplements, including vitamins, minerals, herbal extracts, and protein powders. 

CBD Glossary

  • Hemp: cannabis variety with high CBD and low THC levels (no more than 0.3%).
  • Terpenes: aromatic plant compounds with various beneficial properties (1).
  • Minor cannabinoids: CBN, CBG, CBC, and other beneficial cannabinoids found in smaller amounts in hemp. They may work in synergy with CBD.
  • Full-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract containing multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This form of CBD is about four 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 without any other hemp compounds.

Naturecan CBD Product Lineup

Naturecan offers CBD oils, capsules, gummies, edibles, vapes, and topicals. These products are made with THC-free broad-spectrum hemp extract.

For this review, I tried out Naturecan’s 20% CBD oil, vegan and regular gummies, curcumin CBD capsules, and CBD cookies. You can see my reviews below. 

CBD Oils


CBD/CBG Potency50-400 mg/ml
Volume10-30 ml 
Total cannabinoids500-12000 mg
Cost per mg$0.04–0.07
Third-Party TestView report

Naturecan sells CBD oil in strengths ranging from 5% (50 mg/ml) to 40% (400 mg/ml). There’s also a sleep version with added melatonin (4.8 mg per serving) and cannabigerol (CBG) oils with either a 1:1 mix of CBD and CBG or pure CBG. 

Unfortunately, the third-party tests only show pure CBD and/or CBG, which looks more isolate than the advertised broad-spectrum extract (which should contain multiple cannabinoids). That would explain why I had to take a huge dose to feel any effects. 

My experience: I tested the 20% CBD oil, which had a coconut taste and clear color. Taking a full dropper didn’t produce any noticeable results. I had to take two full droppers (~340 mg of CBD) to notice feelings of calm and relaxation.

CBD Gummies


Potency10-25 mg
Gummy Count30-120
Total cannabinoids300-2250 mg
Cost per mg$0.03-0.08
Third-Party TestView report

Naturecan gummies come in four varieties:

  • CBD 25 mg gummy bears in four assorted flavors (sour or regular)
  • Vegan CBD gummies made with pectin instead of gelatin in four flavors
  • CBD (25 mg) & CBN (5 mg) gummies for sleep 
  • CBG gummies (10-25 mg)

All gummies (except the bears) are made with vegan-friendly pectin. But while they’re advertised to be broad-spectrum, third-party test results show very small amounts of additional minor cannabinoids (~3%), which is disappointing.

My experience: I tried the sour gummy bears and vegan gummies. Both tasted delicious but were covered in too much sugar for my taste. I had to take more than ten gummies alongside peanut butter (for better absorption) to feel a mild relaxing effect. 

CBD Edibles & Tea


Potency20-25 mg
Total cannabinoids200-300 mg
Cost per mg$0.07-0.10
Third-Party TestView report

Aside from gummies, Naturecan offers three more edible snacks:

  1. CBD cookies in double chocolate and chocolate orange flavors (12 pack)
  2. CBD chocolate in milk and dark chocolate varieties (10 bars)
  3. CBD brownies (12 pack)

There’s also caffeine-free hemp tea in chamomile and lemon ginger blends (20 tea bags).

It’s nice to see edible and drinkable alternatives to gummies. But the CBD strength is too low for my liking, especially since Naturecan doesn’t use full-spectrum hemp extract and its products have relatively low minor cannabinoid levels.

My experience: Naturecan sent me the two flavors of their cookies to try. Both were delicious with a sweet, chocolaty taste and a soft gooey texture. But I didn’t feel any effects after taking each cookie separately as the dosage is relatively low. Someone with my level of CBD tolerance would have to eat more than four cookies to feel anything.

CBD Capsules


CBD Potency10 mg
Capsule Count30-120
Total CBD300-1200 mg
Cost per mg£0.05-0.15
Third-Party TestView report

Naturecan offers five types of 10 mg CBD capsules:

  • Standard gelatin softgels
  • Vegan softgels
  • Softgels with added vitamin C (40 mg)
  • Micellar CBD capsules which use nano technology to improve the absorption of CBD
  • MIcellar capsules with 25 mg of added curcumin (and vitamin D3)

While I like the variety, the third-party tests again show relatively small amounts of non-CBD cannabinoids, reducing the effectiveness of the capsules.

My experience: I tested the micellar CBD + curcumin capsules. I didn’t feel anything from taking four capsules. I had raised my dosage to 10 (alongside peanut butter for improved absorption) to feel the relaxation I usually get from CBD.

CBD Topicals


CBD Potency1.3-33 mg/ml
Volume10-250 ml
Total CBD30-1000 mg
Cost per mg CBD£0.03-0.36
Third-Party TestView report

Naturecan has a large variety of topical CBD products:

  • CBD relief balm
  • CBD hand cream
  • CBD joint balm
  • CBD arnica cream
  • CBD massage oil
  • CBD muscle balm
  • CBD lip balm
  • PMS support balm
  • Multi-balm 

On top of that, there are many skincare options like face cream, night cream, facial oil, moisturizer, shampoo, face masks, and more. 

While the variety is good, the amount of CBD In many of these products (especially the skincare ones) is low. 

CBD Vape Products

CBD Vape Juice


Potency25-100 mg/ml
Volume10 ml
Total cannabinoids250-1000 mg
Cost per mg£0.04-0.05
Third-Party TestView report

This straightforward CBD vape e-liquid contains an 80/20 ratio of propylene glycol (PG) and vegetable glycerin (VG) plus one of five flavors: menthol, strawberry, raspberry, grape, and citrus. 

However, third-party tests only show CBD and no other cannabinoid, which is a poor result for what’s advertised as a broad-spectrum product.

Disposable CBD/CBG Vape


Potency100 mg/ml
Volume6 ml
Total Cannabinoids600 mg
Cost per mg£0.04
Third-Party TestsN/A

This disposable vape combines 300 mg of CBD and 300 mg of CBG and comes in a kiwi passionfruit guava flavor. It uses the same VG/PG formula as the vape juice. 

CBD for Animals

CBD Oil for Animals

naturecan cat cbd oil


CBD Potency25-400 mg/ml
Volume30 ml 
Total CBD750-12000 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.02-0.06
Third-Party TestN/A

Naturecan sells three CBD oils for animals: horses, dogs, and cats. Each has an appropriate strength and the same ingredients (CBD plus MCT coconut oil) as the human version. But they only seem to be available in the United States.

CBD Dog Treats


CBD Potency5-25 mg
Treat Count30-60
Total CBD300-750 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.08-0.14
Third-Party TestN/A

Naturecan sells four kinds of CBD dog treats:

  • Cheddar cheese flavor treats in 15 and 25 mg CBD strengths
  • Soft dog treats (5 mg strength)
  • Soft treats for joint support with added joint health ingredients chondroitin, glucosamine and Boswellia
  • Soft treats for calm behavior with added passionflower extract, camomile, and valerian root, three calming herbs

Price & Value

The easiest way to compare the value of CBD products 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 milligram (mg) of CBD would be 100/1500 = $0.07. 

You also have to consider that the prices vary by product type.

Here’s a breakdown of Naturecan’s prices. Some products are only available in the US, while others only in the UK and other countries. I listed the prices in US dollars and British pounds, but you should check if Naturecan has a website for your specific country.

  • CBD oil: 4-7 cents per mg of CBD
  • Gummies: 3-8 cents per mg
  • Edibles & tea: 7-10 cents per mg
  • Capsules: 5-15 pence per mg
  • Topicals: 3-36 pence per mg
  • Vapes: 4-5 pence per mg
  • Pet products: 2-14 cents per mg

Compared to the average CBD market prices, these are generally cheaper. American customers can also subscribe to monthly deliveries for 30% off and free shipping. 

All in all, however, the value you’re getting is average because most of the products are low in minor cannabinoids, making them less effective. 

Hemp Source and Production Process

Naturecan’s hemp is sourced from organic farms in Oregon. The company claims the hemp is certified organic, but we couldn’t find proof of USDA or any other organic certification. 

The hemp is extracted with CO2 (carbon dioxide) by IAH Oregon, a company owned by Naturecan. The resulting broad-spectrum hemp extract is then refined and combined with other ingredients to make products with non-detectable (0.01%) amounts of THC.

Third-Party Testing

Naturecan claims to do six testing stages, including testing the hemp, crude extracts, refined distillate oil, and finished CBD products in the US and UK.

The final steps include sending the products for independent testing to several third-party labs, including IFS Analytical, Altitude Consulting, and 374 Labs. 

Most of these labs are not that well-known but appear to be reputable. These tests check for potency (levels of CBD and other cannabinoids) and pesticides and are posted on the Naturecan websites on the certificates of analysis (CoA) page. 

Third-Party Test Results

I always look at third-party lab test results to confirm that CBD companies sell safe, accurate, and effective products. Specifically, I check for:

  • CBD content, which should be within 10% of the label (3)
  • The levels of THC and minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN
  • Terpene content (if tested)
  • Whether the CBD type (full, broad-spectrum, or isolate) is accurate
  • Whether there are any contaminants

I checked multiple test CoA documents to see if Naturecan’s products are safe and accurate. For the most part, the test results show accurate amounts of CBD. But some tests are outdated (older than 1-2 years). A few products (like the vape and pet CBD oils) are also missing tests entirely.

But the biggest issue I noticed is that many tests only found pure CBD (or CBG) rather than the broad-spectrum hemp extract advertised by Naturecan.

Quality broad-spectrum products should contain multiple minor cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, CBDV, and CBN at levels of at least 5%. In contrast, most of Naturecan’s products contain only CBD alone or very small amounts (1-3%) of minor cannabinoids. 

I attached screenshots of two CoAs above to show a few examples: 

  1. The 15% CBD oil CoA found 1629 mg of CBD, which is a great result as it’s only 8.6% more than the label. But the test only found small amounts of one more cannabinoid, which is disappointing for a broad-spectrum product. 
  2. The 10 mg gummy bears CoA found 12 mg of CBD, which is 20% higher, but only 3.6% minor cannabinoids.

The bottom line is that many of Naturecan’s products are low in minor cannabinoids or only contain CBD, making them less effective than high-quality, broad-spectrum formulas.

Shipping & Returns

Naturecan ships to virtually all countries and has dedicated websites for over 40 countries. You can get free shipping in the US on orders over $50, over £30 in the UK, and over 30€ in EU countries.

There’s a standard 14-day return policy for unused products. Additionally, American customers can return even used products within 30 days to get a replacement or refund.

Customer Service & Reputation

Naturecan has a solid reputation. For starters, it holds an average 4.4/5 rating with over 500 reviews on the independent review site Trustpilot. It’s also transparent, sharing info about its founders and global team. 

More importantly, it’s a carbon-neutral company that supports various environmental and humanitarian causes around the world, including clean drinking water in Sierra Leone, wind farms in northern Brazil, and planting trees in Africa. 

It also submitted a novel foods application required to sell CBD products in the UK.

My Verdict: Solid Company But Weak Products

All the Naturecan products I tested were fairly weak and didn’t produce strong effects. I had to take huge doses to get any noticeable benefits. 

That’s probably because the products mostly contain pure CBD with only small amounts of minor cannabinoids and little to no terpenes. All of these compounds greatly enhance the benefits of CBD. 

Still, I do like the company itself. It’s transparent, ships worldwide, and supports good causes. 

Overall Rating: 3.8/5
