The CBD market is flooded with brands nowadays. There are lots of places where you can buy CBD products, but the majority of sites are online. Today, we look at the Eco CBD brand, founded and produced in the UK.
Eco CBD: Quick Summary
Eco CBD Pros
- Most brand reviews from the public are ‘Excellent,’ which is a good sign.
- The tinctures supposedly have a good quantity of CBD in them.
- The CBD sprays are really delicious and come in exciting flavours.
- The Eco CBD products are really cheap.
Eco CBD Cons
- No lab reports on the website.
- There’s a lack of information about the brand, including no indication of why they are ‘eco.’ It seems to be for show.
- There’s also very little information about the products.
- Considering the strengths and prices, it suggests that the quality of the CBD is low.

Eco CBD: Full Review
Shopping for CBD can be a stressful experience. Ironically, many people are looking to reduce stress through CBD supplements, and yet the shopping process can be overwhelming. This is due to the sheer number of brands now available on the market.
Eco CBD UK is one such brand. Though it’s not the most famous CBD brand around, it has done well for itself in the past few years. We thought we should give these products a try, and we tell you all about the range in this review. If you decide Eco CBD is not the brand for you, make sure you check out our other CBD reviews by using the ‘Reviews‘ tab.
Without further ado, let’s investigate the quality of Eco CBD.
Who Is Eco CBD?
Eco CBD was founded in 2016 in Derbyshire, UK. The brand has moved onwards and upwards since then, improving every year. Currently, the company claims to operate in the largest CBD production facility in the UK, with over 65,000 square feet.
With a name like Eco CBD, you might assume that this brand is pioneering the industry toward sustainability. However, we have no evidence of this. The ‘About’ page is very vague and says absolutely nothing about eco-friendly practices. We would love to know what’s so ‘eco’ about Eco CBD.
Despite this slightly disappointing revelation, Eco CBD has potential. Another negative is that there are no lab reports, and given the low prices of the CBD products, we have some doubts about the quality and actual cannabinoid content.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s check out this brand.
Eco CBD Products
Eco CBD has a decent range of CBD products, including tinctures, edibles, and vapes. We tried them, and below, we let you know what we thought.
Eco CBD Drops and Tinctures
There are two options when it comes to CBD hemp oil; both are full spectrum. The first is a Paste Hemp Extract, although we’re not sure why it’s called this because it comes in an oil dropper bottle. It’s definitely not a paste. It may be because it is ‘raw,’ which implies unchanged cannabinoids like CBDa. Without lab reports, this remains a mystery.
The other option is a Winterised Hemp Oil, which implies that the oil has been filtered. Again, there’s very little product information.
The Paste Hemp Extract comes in three strengths of 1000mg, 2000mg, and 3000mg, with prices starting at just £14.99, which is £0.01 per milligram. In other words, we don’t really think this is a high-quality CBD product! In fact, one of the reviews on TrustPilot suggests that this oil is 1000mg of total cannabinoids, not 1000mg of CBD. Perhaps they’re right.
Meanwhile, the winterised oil comes in more strengths, starting from 3% (300mg) for £19.99.
Eco CBD Edibles
When Eco CBD says edibles, it really means capsules and gummies. This isn’t an enormous range, but it’s a start.
The capsules come in the form of CBD softgels, which is a standard product in this industry. The packet contains 20 soft gel capsules with a total of 200mg of CBD. That’s 10mg per tablet. It’s a pretty low dose, but it may work for some users. When I tried this option, it was too small a strength. I had to take two per day, and that meant that the whole tub is gone in just over a week. A container costs £14.99.
Compared to other CBD gummies on the market, these are quite bland. They’re typical gummy bears, but we’ve had better flavour options. With 5mg per gummy, these are also super low dose. For some people, this is actually ideal because they can tailor the dose; however, the pack sizes are tiny. A 50mg pack (10 gummies) costs £9.99, while a 100mg pack (20 gummies) costs £17.99.
Neither the soft gels nor the gummies are vegan-friendly.
Eco CBD for Inhaling
CBD vape oil is all the rage these days, so it’s not surprising that Eco CBD has an option available. For this range, Eco CBD has opted to use CBD isolate. The oils all come in a range of strengths starting at 1% (100mg). There is also 2% (200mg) and 3% (300mg).
These are all relatively weak, but ideal if you’re looking for a budget option. The 100mg vape oils start at just £4.99. Even for 100mg, this is cheap. Again, we’re doubting the quality.
The CBD vape juices are made with a 30/70 VG/PG blend. It’s interesting that Eco CBD has opted for such a high amount of propylene glycol, as that’s not so common these days.
The flavours are as follows:
- Booster Shot (Unflavoured)
- Girl Scout Cookie
- OG Kush
- Tutti Fruity
- Strawberry Watermelon & Apple
Eco CBD also sells some options from Psycho Bunny.
Eco CBD Sprays
The CBD spray options from Eco CBD are similar to the tinctures, with an MCT oil base. These options are also flavoured, making CBD a pleasant experience. Strengths include 300mg, 500mg, and 1000mg, with prices starting at £29.99.
To be fair to Eco CBD, these are unique and delicious flavours. You can purchase the CBD spray in:
- Acai Berry
- Black Cherry
- Goji Berry
We tried the blackcurrant version, and it was quite tasty. To be honest, this was our favourite product from Eco CBD.
Final Verdict on Eco CBD: 5/10
Eco CBD has some plus points. For one, there’s a good range of products all available at low prices. Plus, the flavours in the Eco CBD sprays are quite delicious.
However, we can’t give Eco CBD a high rating. There’s a lack of information about the brand, such as where the hemp is grown, what extraction process is used, and what the products contain. With no lab reports, it’s impossible to verify the cannabinoid content.
When comparing the prices of these products with other brands of the same strength, it becomes apparent that these products are ridiculously under-priced. It begs the question of whether these products contain as much CBD as they say they do.
Instead, we recommend that our brands try brands like Medterra. Check them out in our full Medterra review.
