We review a lot of CBD companies, and not all of them are up to scratch. It’s really refreshing whenever we find a CBD brand that excels in the field and gives other companies something to live up to.
There are certain things that every CBD brand should be doing. Third-party lab reports should be a bare minimum at this point. And yet, surprisingly, many brands aren’t transparent with their consumers!
This is where Receptra Naturals hits the nail on the head. Other brands should aspire to be as transparent as this! We gave the brand’s products a try to see if they live up to the company ethos – here is what we had to say.
Who Are Receptra Naturals?
Founded in Colorado, Receptra Naturals is a CBD brand focused on an active lifestyle. CBD is commonly used in health and wellness circles, with many athletes using it as part of improving performance. Receptra Naturals definitely caters to this market with a range of tinctures and topicals designed for athletes.
That being said, anyone can use these products. All Receptra Naturals products are accessible and easy to use, and they don’t come in excessive strengths. If you’re thinking about using a CBD supplement to support general wellbeing, then this could still be the brand for you.
Receptra Naturals works with family-owned hemp farms in America. Often, American brands don’t ship to the UK due to differences in the law. On the FAQ, Receptra Naturals says it ships to many international countries, so you might want to check them out even if you don’t live in the USA.
The hemp is grown organically and the extraction facility is fully licensed. But these aren’t the only things which suggest high quality. Receptra Naturals has all its products lab tested. The lab tests are available to view on the website, but guess what else? Once you order your product and it arrives, you can put in the batch code (on the label), and Receptra Naturals provides a lab report for your specific product.
It’s obvious that Receptra Naturals is going above and beyond to create an honest relationship with customers, and it’s something we love to see.
Receptra Naturals CBD Products
As for the products, Receptra Naturals breaks them down into various categories, including Pro, Elite, and Active. Each of these is basically a different strength and different ingredients, but we will explain that below as we go through each of the products available.
Receptra Naturals CBD Oil
The Receptra CBD tinctures come in a variety of strengths to suit all users. There is a clear breakdown on the website about how much CBD is contained in each bottle and how much you get per drop, making it really easy to find the right option for you. The oils are made with a carrier blend of hemp seed oil, MCT oil, avocado oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil, and turmeric, making for a unique experience compared to other brands.
The Active CBD Oil is made with added turmeric, known to be an anti-inflammatory compound. It also has a mint/berry oil flavour. Receptra suggests this oil for those who partake in mild to moderate exercise a few times a week. The Active Oil contains 15mg of CBD per dropper, changing the overall CBD content depending on the bottle size.
- 15ml (255mg): $24.95
- 30ml (495mg): $44.95
- 60ml (1005mg): $79.95
The Prime CBD Oil is slightly stronger, containing 22mg of CBD per drop. Receptra says that the Prime oil is ideal for newcomers to CBD who enjoy mild activity. It comes in Unflavoured and Fresh Berry options.
- 30ml (726mg): $74.95
Next is the Elite CBD Oil. Receptra recommends this one for people who partake in moderate to intense exercise and are regularly active. The formula contains turmeric, as well as essential fatty acids (Omega 3 and Omega 6) to promote calm and energy. The Elite formula contains 30mg of CBD per drop.
- 15ml (510mg): $44.95
- 30ml (990mg): $79.95
- 60ml (2010mg): $149.95
The next strength up is the Plus CBD Oil. Rather than being a product for athletes, this one is ideal for moderately active people looking for a health supplement. You can purchase these bottles as an unflavoured oil or opt for a Fresh Berry flavour. The Plus oil contains 44mg of CBD per drop.
- 15ml (748mg): $74.95
- 30ml (1452mg): $134.95
- 60ml (2948mg): $199.95
Finally is the strongest oil: The Pro CBD Oil. This option packs 60mg of CBD per dropper. Once again, added turmeric makes this oil ideal for athletes. Receptra Naturals recommends this option for those who regularly engage in intense exercise.
- 15ml (1020mg): $79.95
- 30ml (1980mg): $149.95
- 60ml (4020mg): $249.95
Alongside the regular Elite formula, Receptra Naturals also offers an isolate version. It’s still broad-spectrum, but contains 0% THC. It contains around 1000mg and costs $89.95.
Receptra Naturals CBD Topicals
Receptra also stocks a nice range of topicals. The Receptra Targeted Topical contains the standard ingredients you find in CBD topicals, such as arnica and jojoba. However, Receptra has also included ylang-ylang, said to promote efficient muscle recovery, and camphor to open the pores and improve delivery.
- 25oz (400mg): $39.95
- 5oz (800mg): $68.95
This product also comes in a 0% formula. It’s a broad-spectrum version which has the THC removed. The isolate variety is only available in the 1.25oz tub, costing $47.95.
For a more luxurious topical, you can purchase the Body Butter. This has a softer consistency and can moisturize skin with typical skincare ingredients. It also contains Vitamin E, a known antioxidant. The natural scent, produced with jasmine and camphor, can prevent irritations because no artificial scents are used. The body butter comes in a 3.25oz tub with 400mg of CBD, costing $44.95.
Finally, there is a CBD Lip Balm. We have seen a few CBD lip balms recently, and they make a pleasant addition to the CBD skincare market. Receptra’s version contains a zinc oxide protectant, vitamin E oil, and 15mg of CBD. The stick costs $5.95.
Receptra Naturals CBD for Pets
Many companies now offer CBD for pets. Receptra Naturals stocks a tincture that you can use by adding it to your pet’s food. It’s unflavoured and can be used for any animal – including dogs and cats. However, we suggest that you do proper research and give your pet the correct dose.

Receptra Naturals Cons

Final Verdict on Receptra Naturals
It’s fantastic to see a company promoting full transparency in the CBD industry. A lot of CBD brands like to make big claims and boast about lab reports, but when it comes down to it, they do very little to actually assure their customers. Receptra Naturals turns this on its head and does everything to ensure that customers know what they are consuming.
There is a nice range of products available, too, giving consumers a good variety of choices. We hope to see more brands copying this format in the future.
