Colorado’s Veritas Farms is one of the most well-rounded CBD companies we’ve come across. We like its product variety, impressive third-party test results, and in-house hemp production.

Bottom line: Veritas is an all-around great CBD vendor with only a few things to improve.

Pros

  • Extensive third-party testing with impressive results
  • Wide product variety
  • Full-spectrum CBD products
  • Grows and extracts its own hemp

Cons

  • Missing some product variants like full-spectrum and high-strength gummies
  • Third-party tests not available without a batch number for some products

Overall Rating: 4.2/5

Product Lineup 4.5/5

Veritas has all of the popular CBD product types in several strengths and formulations. But we’d like to see a few more options, like full-spectrum and high-potency gummies.

Price & Value 3.5/5

Veritas’ prices are slightly below average and you can get further savings with the subscription and discount program. But you can find cheaper CBD vendors.

Hemp Quality 4.5/5

The company grows and extracts hemp on a sustainable farm in Pueblo, Colorado.

Third-Party Testing 4.5/5

The third-party testing is thorough and the results are great. Our only criticism is that you can’t look up third-party tests for some products before purchasing.

Customer Service & Reputation 4/5

Veritas has overwhelmingly positive reviews but it lacks the recognition of leading CBD companies. 

Veritas Farms Overview

Veritas Farms is a CBD company that does everything under one roof in Pueblo, Colorado. It grows hemp on a 140-acre sustainable farm and extracts it with ethanol to make full-spectrum CBD products.

Founded in 2015, Veritas translates to truth in Latin, highlighting the company’s focus on transparency. That’s why it provides complete third-party lab reports as well as free tours of its farm and facilities. 

The company has something to offer everyone with different product types, formulas, and strengths.

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.

Veritas Farms Product Lineup

You can choose from CBD oil, capsules, gummies, topicals, and pet products. Except for the gummies, all Veritas Farms products contain full-spectrum hemp extract.

CBD Tinctures

Veritas Farms offers standard full-spectrum CBD tinctures and three special formulas for sleep, stress, and energy.

Full-spectrum CBD Tincture

CBD Potency8-67 mg/ml
Volume30 ml
Total CBD250-2000 mg

Flavors4
Third-Party TestView report

Veritas’ full-spectrum tinctures are available in 4 low-to-high strengths and 4 flavors: unflavored, peppermint, strawberry, and watermelon.

We’re big fans of these CBD oils because they offer a lot of variety. They also contain high terpene concentrations and some of the highest minor cannabinoid levels I’ve seen from any tincture — 15.4% according to the latest third-party tests. More terpenes and minor cannabinoids mean more potent effects. 

Specialized CBD Tinctures

4.5/5

Potency33 mg/ml
Volume30 ml
Total Cannabinoids1000 mg

Formulas3
Third-Party TestView report

These full-spectrum CBD tinctures come in three formulas with added ingredients:

  • Sleep support, with a bit of added cannabinol (CBN), plus the sleep herbs chamomile and lemon balm
  • Energy, with added uplifting cannabigerol (CBG), rosemary, and eucalyptus
  • Stress relief, with added green tea, 5-HTP, and theobromine from cocoa beans

Each tincture contains 1000 mg of cannabinoids in total. We like the creativity of these tinctures and solid terpene/minor cannabinoid levels but would prefer an additional high-potency option. 

CBD Capsules

Similar to its oils, Veritas sells standard full-spectrum capsules and those with a specialized formula. 

CBD Softgels

Again, we like the innovative formulas.

These simple gelatin gummies contain pure CBD. You can get the regular formula (6 mg CBD) or the one for sleep with 5 mg CBD and 5 mg melatonin. These gummies can be better if there are higher strengths and full-spectrum varieties. 

CBD Topicals

Veritas offers different kinds of CBD topicals, including creams, salves, balms, roll-ons, massage oil, and lip balm. 

Full-Spectrum CBD Roll-On

The CBD roll-on is designed to soothe and calm by applying it to the temples, neck, shoulders, and forehead. It comes in two formulas:

We like the idea and the portability.

Third-Party TestBatch # Needed

This unique oil is designed to stop itching and soothe your dog’s hot spots — inflamed, irritated skin areas. It contains a mix of full-spectrum CBD and many oils.

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.

With Veritas Farms, here’s how much you’re paying per mg of CBD:

  • CBD oil: $0.06-0.12 per mg
  • Capsules: $0.08-0.10 per mg
  • Gummies: $0.11-0.13 per mg
  • Topicals: $0.03-0.11 per mg
  • Pet products: $0.08-0.10 per mg

Veritas’ prices are considered average or a bit cheaper than average. Its topicals are the cheapest product with the greatest bang for your buck.

But you can get 20% off and free shipping by subscribing to monthly deliveries. Veritas also sells many product bundles & kits for additional savings. There’s also a discount for military and medical personnel.

All in all, the value is decent, although you can find cheaper products of similar quality elsewhere.

Hemp Source and Production Process

Veritas runs a 140-acre hemp farm in Pueblo Colorado, which is fed by water from the Rocky Mountains. The hemp is grown using sustainable methods such as drip irrigation to conserve water. 

Veritas also measures cannabinoid levels during the growing process to ensure quality control.

The hemp is then harvested with machinery, dried, and ground up for cold ethanol extraction, one of the most popular methods of extracting CBD and other beneficial compounds.

Third-Party Testing

Veritas Farms works with Kaycha Labs, a reputable cannabis & hemp testing lab from Colorado. All products are tested for potency (levels of CBD and other cannabinoids) as well as purity (pesticides, heavy metals, and other potential contaminants).

Most product pages have a direct link to the latest third-party test reports and you can also use the Certificate of Analysis (CoA) finder using your product’s lot number. 

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

We analyzed the third-party certificates of analysis (CoAs) for three products (shown above):

  • The 1000 mg full-spectrum CBD oil, showing multiple terpenes and only 3% more CBD than claimed
  • The immunity boost softgels, which should have ~15 mg CBG and 17~ mg CBD, and the tests showing about 13.5 mg CBG and 17.4 mg CBD, which is within 10%
  • The 1000 mg salve, showing various terpenes and only 8% less CBD than advertised

All three tests were recent and also proved that the products are full-spectrum since they contained THC and other minor cannabinoids. They also showed high levels of minor cannabinoids (over 10%), which is great news since they add to the effectiveness of CBD.

In summary, we’re impressed with the level of testing and the test results of Veritas Farms’ products. 

Shipping & Returns

Veritas has standard domestic shipping which is estimated to take 7-10 days. With a 30-day money-back guarantee you can return any unopened items within 30 days of delivery.

You can also request an exchange for partially missing or damaged products.

Customer Service & Reputation

While it might not be the best-known brand in the CBD space, Veritas has all the signs of a reputable vendor, like hundreds of satisfied customer reviews.

We also sent the company an email asking to see test results for the CBD softgels and they got back to us within a day. There’s a live chat option too.

Our Verdict: Solid Option for Full-Spectrum CBD Products

Veritas Farms is an all-around great brand. It has a good variety of products, including CBD oils of different strengths and flavors, impressive third-party test results, and does everything internally from growing hemp to making the finished products, which is ideal for quality control. 

We also like the innovative CBD tinctures and capsules designed for different benefits.

Veritas only has a few things to work on before we can consider it a top-tier brand. For one, we’d like to see full-spectrum gummies and high-strength capsules and gummies added.

Another minor criticism is that some products are missing third-party lab reports on their pages, which means you won’t be able to see the tests until you buy the product and put in your batch number. 

Overall Rating: 4.2/5
