Green Gorilla Review
In this Green Gorilla review from The CBD Guru we will look at what this CBD company has to offer. With a plentiful variety of CBD-rich hemp products, Green Gorilla entices a consumer to try some of their powerful formulas.
The brand takes it a step further than just sharing the love of CBD. They understand the potential hemp has as a renewable source for paper or pulp, building materials, plastics, textiles, biofuel, foods, medicines, and so much more.
Their mission is not just to help their community heal their bodies and minds, but to preserve the environment through the vast opportunity hemp brings to the world.
We were happy we got the chance to try out Green Gorilla’s products, and we’re excited to share our experience with you. Providing both the pros and cons, the bright sides and the downsides, we want to show you what it’s like to shop with the brand, what their products were like, what makes them different, and more.
If you’ve been deciding whether or not you want to shop with Green Gorilla for their CBD products, this may be the exact guide you’re looking for.

Summary: Using a special proprietary formula to increase the bioavailability of their hemp products, Green Gorilla is a CBD brand that we’re intrigued by. They appear to put quality first, and we wanted to give them a fair opportunity to really test out their products as well as the entire Green Gorilla shopping experience.
Green Gorilla’s Third-Party Lab Testing
The lab testing for the most recent batch of each product can be found directly on each product page of the Green Gorilla web platform. We were delighted to see the complexity of their third-party lab reports.
Not only do they test for residual solvents and other contaminants like propane, butane, benzene, pesticides and more, but they also provide a full cannabinoid and terpene profile.
We were glad to see the clarification since they do offer full-spectrum CBD products. It’s always worth noting what combination of cannabinoids and terpenes you’re going to experience with each serving.
Our Experience with Different Green Gorilla Products
The only two flavor options for the Pure CBD oil appeared to be lemon flavored and natural hemp. Not a huge fan of the way hemp tastes by itself, we went for the lemon flavor. They had 5 strengths to choose from: 150mg, 600mg, 1,500mg, 3,000mg, and a powerful 7,500mg.
While we were curious to try the 7,500 mighty monster of a CBD product, that one’s about $600. So we went with something that’s more in line with both our tolerance for cannabinoids and our budget for this review.
We went for the 1,500mg, which had a promising list of just four ingredients. 1,500mg pure CBD, organic extra virgin olive oil, phytocannabinoid-rich hemp extract, and a GG BioEnhanced Complex, which is their proprietary process for making the product more bioavailable overall.
One of the biggest things to love about this product is the bottle it comes in. Instead of droppers of CBD oil like we’re used to, it uses a pump nozzle to deliver oil that way. They recommended about 5 pumps a day for this strength or a daily serving of 50mg CBD. Overall, it delivered an impressive array of results faster than we’d anticipated.
There were three CBD topical products at the time of this review, but we’re happy to see Green Gorilla continue to release new products regularly. The products available were a botanical CBD balm, a CBD lip balm, and a CBD balm for pets. As we’re so used to trying CBD salves and other topicals directly for the skin, we decided to chance it and give the CBD lip balm a try.
The lip balm contained 20mg CBD in its entirety, which we did find as a small amount, but it did appear to do everything we were looking for a lip balm to do. It moisturized the lips and seemed to seal in the moisture to prevent so many frequent reapplications like we so often find ourselves doing with a regular chapstick. We can’t say that it was just the CBD that was benefiting us with this product. We’ll definitely be back to use it again regardless of the primary effective ingredient.
CBD Gorilla Gummies
The gummies from Green Gorilla comes in a convenient travel-sized pack of 4 gummies, or a 300mg bottle containing 60. Certified Kosher, gelatin-free, non-GMO, and made with 95% organic ingredients, the gummies were a delicious berry blend on the tongue.
The decadent sweet that hits your tongue from the cane sugar, pectin, and organic Tapioca sings to the taste buds. Then, you just move on about your day and reap the benefits for longer once they start to take effect. You can eat 2 to 4 gummies a day, so we went with 4. We hope they’ll increase the strength options for their gummies in the future to see higher and even lower strength gummies available.
Green Gorilla CBD for Horses
If you are looking to try CBD for your horse or are looking for other CBD options then Green Gorilla offers a formula specifically for horses. Green Gorilla claims it to be the highest quality CBD for horses. It contains absolutely no THC and does not have any psychoactive properties. CBD for horses has become increasingly popular of late. Many horse lovers believe strongly that CBD helps their horses. More people would probably try CBD for their horses but it gets expensive because of their sheer size. So if you have the means this would definitely be a brand worth looking at.

Final Thoughts From The CBD Guru – Green Gorilla CBD Review
Green Gorilla continues to show that it is one of the top CBD companies in the US. They are also expanding operations to reach a more global audience. There is an international sales team that oversees Green Gorilla’s operations in cities such as Oslo, London, Stockholm, and Amsterdam. In 2019 Green Gorilla signed an international CBD distribution deal with a company called Ecobrands. This deal has provided Green Gorilla with a vast network of distribution channels throughout Europe and Scandinavia.
When you start looking more closely at the Green Gorilla brand it becomes very apparent why they are such an attractive option as some of the best cbd products. For one, Green Gorilla is USDA Organic Certified. Their CBD products are only made with organic hemp and certified organic ingredients. This provides CBD products that are the safest and highest in quality. Green Gorilla claims to be the first USDA Certified Organic hemp CBD brand.
Green Gorilla is a farm to shelf CBD company. We like to see this because it means that they have full control and transparency of the entire process. From growing hemp all the way to the final CBD products. This is a good thing when a company is transparent and open about every step of the way, such as Green Gorilla has been. Just in case you have any doubts they make sure to have their products tested by a third-party lab. Each batch is tested to ensure it is free of pesticides, herbicides, and solvents. All of the 3rd party labs used by Green Gorilla are ISO certified. This means there is full traceability and transparency throughout the entire process.
Something else we would like to bring to the forefront is a study conducted by the Center for Foood Safety. In 2019 Green Gorilla was one of four CBD companies to receive a scorecard rating of ‘A’. This is out of 40 CBD companies. This is further proof that Green Gorilla has taken, and continues to take, the necessary steps to provide the safest and highest quality CBD products on the market today.

Fine-Tune Your CBD Regimen With Green Gorilla’s Microdosing Oil Pump
January 2, 2018 by Dominique Michelle Astorino
New to CBD? Just beginning your antianxiety journey? Start with a small dose and a high-quality product. Our most recent favorite? Green Gorilla Pure CBD Oil and Olive Oil, 150mg ($26). There are more than a few reasons we love this oil, but for starters, it’s combined with high-quality extra virgin olive oil, so the taste is really mild yet flavorful, making it great for taking as a tincture or adding to your food.
“Green Gorilla was the first company to use pure extra virgin olive oil as the carrier for the CBD,” Green Gorilla told POPSUGAR. The significance of this? “Olive oil aids in the absorption of the CBD.” It’s also important to note the heart-healthy benefits of olive oil on its own, too.
And for newbies, the 150-milligram bottle is ideal for beginning your supplement routine. Each serving from a pump of this oil is only 1.5 mg — that’s even less than the two-milligram chocolates we love. This allows you to be pinpoint specific with the dose you’re taking and truly customize your CBD regimen.
As noted on the site, this product and all other Green Gorilla CBD products “are non-psychoactive, contain no THC, and are produced and sold in compliance with US federal law.” So no need to feel nervous about any aspect of this supplement!
Our suggestion: start with a single serving either sublingually or in your food (think: salad dressing, on veggies, in soup or juice). Take notes about how you feel. Start to scale up until you reach desired levels of pain reduction and anxiety relief.
And as always, a friendly reminder: these supplements (and our suggestions) are not meant to replace any current prescription or therapy as recommended by your healthcare provider, unless they say otherwise!
