The Greenest Says:
Green Gorilla Certified Organic CBD Balm is a lukewarm offering from an otherwise stellar company. The value just isn’t quite what I’m used to seeing, especially when it comes to Green Gorilla. It’s USDA Certified Organic CBD, which is incredible for hemp. And they are vertically integrated to offer seed to shelf hemp products. But it’s only distillate, which does hamper the effectiveness. The ingredients are simple, clean, and effective. Test results check out, and are easily located. I’m all for Green Gorilla, but I might try a different topical. – Willy Christie
What is Green Gorilla’s Certified Organic Botanical CBD Balm?
This is an Isolate CBD cream created by Green Gorilla designed to help with sore or achy joints and muscles. The balm contains a number of other ingredients with additional health benefits including arnica, eucalyptus and lavender oil. Since it is only isolate, there are no other cannabinoids for your endocannabinoid system. Which means there’s no entourage effect. It’s just pure CBD.

How Much CBD is in it?
There are two versions to the CBD. One has 300 mg of CBD, while the other has 750 mg.
Will This Get You High?
No. This product contains only pure CBD, no other cannabinoids. This means there’s no THC, which is the cannabinoid that produces psychoactive effects. Not even a little bit.
Who Should Try this Green Gorilla Certified Organic CBD Balm?
Since this is a CBD isolate product that contains no THC, we like to think of this as a “CBD Starter” for those who may have concerns about consuming any THC. Isolates are a great way for those who are wary of consuming THC products to get some of the benefits CBD without any THC content. Once you do get comfortable with it, we suggest moving up to full spectrum products that offer the complete array of cannabinoids to experience all the CBD has to offer. Sidenote: The legal hemp products with less than .3% THC still won’t get you high!

How Much Should You Use?
Green Gorilla recommends applying the balm liberally to sore or achy parts of the body. You can also put it on the non-achey parts, but we’re not sure why you’d do that.

It usually take 10-15 minutes to feel a topical’s effect. You will most likely feel the effects of the other ingredients initially. CBD can take 2-4 weeks to become fully effective. Especially if you’re new to CBD since it takes a while to work its way into your system.

Yes. This balm contains only CBD and no THC, which means it’s legal in all 50 states. That’s in thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill.

Yes. Green Gorilla tests all of their products with a third party, independent lab. You can view the lab results on their website.
