I personally test CBD products and may earn a commission if you shop through the links on this page. Here’s how we make money.

R&R CBD is yet another high-quality CBD brand out of Colorado. I found its USDA-certified organic products to be some of the most affordable and effective ones I’ve tried.

Bottom line: R&R CBD sells high-quality, organic products at below-average prices.

Pros:

  • Many USDA-certified organic products
  • Below-average prices
  • THC-free and full-spectrum options
  • Extensive third-party testing
  • U.S. Hemp Authority Certification

Cons:

  • Customer reviews are combined instead of individual product reviews

Overall Rating: 4.7/5

Products 4.5/5
The products I tried worked well and the variety is good. But I’d like to see more strength and size options, like a bigger container of softgels and a 2500 mg broad-spectrum tincture.
Price & Value 4.5/5
The products are of high quality and have below-average prices, so you’re getting great value.
Hemp Quality 5/5
R&R uses USDA-certified organic hemp grown in Colorado and is certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority. That’s about as good as it gets.
Third-Party Testing 5/5
R&R provides extensive third-party reports, including terpene potency, verifying that its products are safe and have accurate CBD and good minor cannabinoid levels.
Customer Service & Reputation 4.5/5
Judging from its 5/5-star customer reviews on Google, R&R has a solid reputation. But it’s not quite as established as top-tier brands and I’d like to see separate reviews for each product.

R&R CBD Overview

Previously known as R+R Medicinals, R&R CBD stands out for offering high-quality products at great prices. Founded in 2017, this employee and veteran-owned brand sells CBD oil, cream, softgels, gummies, and pet products.

All R&R CBD products are certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority, a third-party program that highlights adherence to strict hemp production standards. Many are also certified organic by the USDA, which means they contain over 95% organic ingredients and are made with organic processing methods.

R&R’s whole-plant extracts are sourced from organic hemp grown locally in Colorado. The company’s products are extensively tested by a third-party lab, which even checks the terpene amounts.

CBD Terminology

  • Hemp: cannabis variety with high CBD and low THC levels (no more than 0.3%).
  • 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 may work in synergy with CBD.
  • Full-spectrum: whole-plant hemp extract containing multiple cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. This form of CBD may be 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.

R&R CBD Product Lineup

R&R’s product lineup includes full-spectrum and broad-spectrum (THC-free) CBD oil, cream, softgels, gummies, and pet products. They’re certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority and some are also certified organic by the USDA.

r&r cbd product samples for review
The product samples I received for my original review (before the company rebranded). I tried 2500 mg tincture in Nov. 2022.

I received the full-spectrum CBD oil, gummies, and smaller samples of the cream, capsules, and dog chews to try out.

One thing I like about R&R is that the product labels show the amounts of not just CBD but also THC and minor cannabinoids per serving.

That’s especially helpful information for people who are sensitive to THC and need to be careful when using full-spectrum CBD products.

Flavors2
Third-Party TestView report

These USDA-organic tinctures come in full and broad-spectrum varieties and three low to high strengths. You can choose from natural and mint flavors. Third-party tests confirm that these oils contain impressive levels of minor cannabinoids (15%+) and some terpenes.

My experience: I tried both the 1000 mg and 2500 mg full-spectrum CBD oil. The 2500 mg fresh mint tincture was one of the most potent CBD oils I’ve ever tried. I felt relaxed and slept really well after taking it. The tincture has a subtle mint flavor and a dark color that I usually notice with quality CBD oils rich in cannabinoids and terpenes.

CBD Softgels

R&R’s softgels provide the same full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD as the oils but in capsule form. 

My experience: The capsules were tasteless and had weaker but longer-lasting effects than the tincture (as expected).

CBD Gummies

These gummy rings contain USDA-certified organic and vegan ingredients and come in full-spectrum and THC-free varieties. Each container has 30 multi-flavored (palisade beach, granny smith apple, and alpine strawberry flavors) gummies.

My experience: The gummies were my favorite R&R product because they were exceptionally tasty and had noticeable, long-lasting effects when I took several pieces at once. They were so good that I went through the whole container in only a few days.

CBD Cream

CBD Potency13.5-27 mg/ml
Volume2.5 oz (74 ml)
Total CBD1000-2000 mg

TypeFull-spectrum 
Third-Party TestView report

R&R’s cream contains full-spectrum CBD and other natural anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving compounds such as arnica, MSM, and calendula. 

My experience: I used a sample pack my shoulders after a workout and did notice a bit of soreness relief, which is a great sign because many CBD topicals contain menthol, making it hard to see if the CBD is doing anything. I like the formula and price point.

CBD Pet Products

R&R also offers tinctures and treats designed for dogs and cats.

Third-Party TestView report

This full-spectrum CBD oil is a good option for supporting the well-being of your four-legged companion. It has a low strength of 17 mg/ml (500 mg CBD total) which is suitable for cats and small-to-medium size dogs.

Unlike the human version, it’s made with grapeseed oil which is more suitable for pets than MCT oil. All of the ingredients are USDA-certified organic.

R&R Pet Chews

5/5

CBD Potency1.5-5 mg
Chews Count30-100
Total CBD150-300 mg
Cost per mg CBD$0.10
TypeFull-spectrum
Third-Party TestView report

You can choose from dog or cat chews. Both are made with full-spectrum CBD but have different strengths and nutritional ingredients. The dog version has 5 mg per piece and chicken flavor, while the cat one provides 1.5 mg with trout and chicken flavor.

My experience: I gave a sample of the chews to a friend and he said his dog liked them and acted more chill afterwards.

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, which is 7 cents.

You also have to keep in mind that different CBD product categories (oils, capsules, gummies, etc.) vary in price.

Here’s the breakdown of R&R’s prices:

  • CBD oil: $0.04–0.06 per mg of CBD
  • Gummies: $0.06 per mg
  • Capsules: $0.05-0.06 mg
  • Topicals: $0.04 per mg
  • Pet products: $0.06-0.10 per mg

These costs are cheaper than average for each category, especially when considering the organic and U.S. Hemp Authority certifications. R&R also offers a 15% discount for automatic product shipments and 25% off for veterans. All in all, you’re getting great value with this brand.

Hemp Source and Production Process

R&R CBD does everything from farm to product locally in Colorado, starting with organic hemp farms. The hemp is extracted with supercritical CO2 (carbon dioxide), one of the two most common CBD extraction methods.

R&R is also certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority, highlighting its adherence to strict hemp industry standards.

In my experience, CBD oils that have a dark earthy/brown color tend to have greater effects and higher minor cannabinoid levels than those that have a clear yellow/white color.

Third-Party Testing

R&R orders independent testing of its products from California’s SC Labs, a well-respected cannabis testing lab.

These comprehensive tests check for both potency (amounts of cannabinoids and even terpenes) and potential contaminants. R&R publishes the certificates of analysis (COAs) online.

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:

  • The levels of CBD, which should be within 10% of the label (3)
  • 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

You can see the test reports for R&R’s 2500 mg full-spectrum tincture, 30 mg capsules, and 25 mg gummies above. 

  • The tincture contains 2778 mg of CBD, which is only 11.1% more than the label. That’s slightly outside the accurate range but still a good result
  • The gummies contain 8.4% more CBD, which is an excellent result
  • The capsules have only 2.6% more CBD, another great result

These results and the other ones I looked at are below or slightly above the 10% cutoff, so I consider them accurately labeled. The only exception was the dog pet chews, which contained 20% more than labeled. But that’s still a good result because the chews have small amounts of CBD (5 mg) so it’s harder to maintain accuracy.

All of the products also contained the advertised type of CBD, with the tests showing multiple cannabinoids and terpenes. My only complaint is that the gummies had relatively low levels of minor hemp cannabinoids.

Overall, the test reports for R&R check off all the right boxes: they’re up-to-date, comprehensive (cannabinoids, terpenes, and contaminants), and match the label.

Shipping & Returns

R&R offers free domestic shipping and paid international shipping. In fact, it’s one of the only CBD companies that ship to both Canada and Australia, two countries with restrictive CBD laws.

You can request a full refund (minus return shipping) within 30 days of purchase.

Customer Service & Reputation

Although R&R is not as well-known as major CBD brands, it holds an average 5 out of 5 stars in over 500 Google reviews. That’s one of the highest customer ratings I’ve seen from any brand.

The company also responded to my emailed questions in a timely and helpful manner.

But I’d like to see separate reviews for each product instead of unified reviews on one page. And it would be nice to have more info about the people behind R&R for greater transparency.

The Verdict: Affordable Brand With High-Quality Products

R&R is a top-tier CBD company. It has affordable prices for quality full-spectrum CBD, offers a versatile (but not overwhelming) variety, and has many USDA-certified organic products.

I had the chance to try out its CBD oil, capsules, gummies, and cream, finding them to be comparable or stronger in effects than other leading brands. I’m also a big fan of the informative labels which show not only the CBD content and extract type but even the amounts of THC and minor cannabinoids in each serving. 

But I do have some suggestions for improvement. It would be nice to see separate customer reviews for each product instead of unified Google reviews. R&R CBD can also add more product strengths and sizes, like a 2500 mg THC-free tincture and a bigger container of capsules for greater savings.
