Finding a CBD brand that knocks your socks off in today’s saturated market is a real challenge. The Good Level is aiming to change that by shaking up the same old CBD business models and offering something new.

They start with a website, pay a marketing agency to do some flashy branding for them, and then import cheap, low-quality hemp from overseas before making it into lacklustre CBD oil. Ultimately, no matter which brand you choose, you end up having the same experience.

However, now there might be an exception. A small grassroots company called The Good Level is trying to change how the industry operates – at least, in the UK.

Its founders, Joe and Jonny, actively reject the status quo described above and are totally reshaping how CBD production works. For instance, they prefer to offer their customers full-spectrum CBD oils that contain additional plant compounds that may support health. They also use cold-pressed extraction methods, not harsh chemical alternatives that can damage active ingredients. Plus, they actively support British farming, nurturing relationships with producers on a personal, one-to-one basis.

On the consumer side, The Good Level offers products that taste superior to mainstream offerings. For instance, it drip-feeds crops so that it has complete control over how leaves and buds turn out. Unlike most brands, it doesn’t use MCT oil as a carrier. Instead, it uses extra virgin olive oil which not only tastes far better than MCT oil, there is no requirement for refrigeration. And it includes pipettes with its vials so that you can control exactly how much CBD you take in a single serving.

Given the brand’s impressive credentials, we thought we would check out their products and see whether all their hard work has made a difference. Spoiler: they did not disappoint!

Jelly Dots

You can think of The Good Level’s CBD jelly dots as the brand’s version of regular gummies. Like those of other brands, the product is vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free. But the real difference is in the quality of the CBD that you get in each serving.

Joe and Jonny promise their customers cold-pressed CBD derived from UK-based hemp grown under controlled conditions. When you eat the brand’s jelly dots, you get a genuine sense of wellbeing that can be hard to find using other products on the market that rely on imported hemp.

The Good Level’s Jelly Dots come in a variety of flavours including kaffir lime, Corfu lemon and Cara Cara orange. Each pack contains lab-tested CBD, plus other natural ingredients specially selected by Joe and Jonny. As with the other products in The Good Level range, jelly dots use olive oil which dramatically improves the taste.

The Good Level Oils

The Good Level’s CBD oils are where it all started. Joe and Jonny were sick and tired of subpar hemp and chemical processing destroying the wellness benefits of the compound. So they began their business as a way to create the quality CBD they needed for themselves. At first, it was just an experiment. But after friends and family saw how much their unique processes were helping them, they soon realised that they had a genuine business model on their hands. Before long, Joe and Jonny were selling CBD commercially.

Today, just a couple of years later, the brand offers a range of CBD oils, all comprising different “levels.” CBD Oil Level 1 is the brand’s entry-level product. The carrier is pressed from Greek Kalamata olives, giving it a unique and delicate flavour that never overwhelms the palate. Like other products in the range, it is full-spectrum, offering 500mg or 1500mg of CBD per bottle, plus natural flavourings. Unlike most CBD oils, pipetting a few drops of this onto the tongue is a pleasant experience.

CBD Oil Level 2 is a little stronger. Like Level 1, it has a smooth taste with a gentle, nutty aroma and, again, uses olive oil to aid absorption. But it is suitable for people who want a higher dose per drop of oil. It comes supplied in The Good Level’s amber bottles to prevent degradation by sunlight or UV rays. As before, The Good Level refuses to put anything into the blend that people might consider “unnatural” so, as always, you know you are getting the best

The brand’s most potent product is CBD Oil Level 3. This doubles the CBD content yet again to 6,000mg per pack, making CBD oil a full 20 percent of the volume. To increase the CBD content of the oil, The Good Level first cold-pressed hemp oil and then adds isolates from trusted European sources. The oil is delicious and absorbs effortlessly under the tongue after around 60 seconds.

CBD Balms

Research shows that cannabidiol can penetrate the skin and interact with nerve cell receptors deeper down. This interaction then generates a cascade that eventually speeds up the recovery process, allowing people to get back to training faster.

Founder Jonny’s main motivation for founding The Good Level was to enhance his recovery after sports practice, so it should come as no surprise that the brand now offers a balm to fitness enthusiasts and anyone else who leads an active lifestyle.

The Good Level’s CBD Muscle and Skin Balm hold true to the brand’s principle of always using natural ingredients. The main carriers are beeswax and olive oil which give it a beautiful consistency and leave the skin feeling supple and fresh. The moisturising effects are so good that most people won’t need to use their regular moisturiser on the areas that they target. It keeps skin looking full, hydrated and beautiful.

Critically, The Good Level does not use petroleum-based lubricants popular in other products – great for sensitive skin. It’s all part of the brand’s drive to make its products “as nature intended.”

So, to conclude, The Good Level is a CBD brand hell-bent on improving standards in the UK CBD sector. We think it is a must-try brand for anyone not getting the results they want from cheap, imported hemp. If that’s not enough to convince you, the brand’s products also taste so much better than regular options.

They’ve also currently got a 25% off sale running on their website and if you use the code CM15 you’ll get an additional 15 percent off.
