Overall score: A. Good product. Responsive company.
In our review of Green Garden Gold and its products, we and the author had made false accusations and claims that we would like to retract at this time. We had failed to verify our facts and for this we apologize to our readers and Green Garden Gold. The F- Rating given was based on false information and we retract that rating and any false claims at this time. The false claims were as follows:
- We had claimed that Green Garden Gold uses European hemp but they use USDA Certified Organic Hemp from Colorado. There is and has been a link on their homepage displaying the certificate.
- We claimed Green Garden Gold use next to no CBD oil in their products, but this also was false, proven through legitimate third party
- We claimed Green Garden Gold uses fake certifications for their third party testing, but the third party labs are legitimate and we were misinformed.
- We claimed Green Garden Gold had been cited twice by the FDA, but we misinterpreted the reasons Green Garden Gold had been cited. They were cited as many others in the industry were for making claims without the FDA disclaimer on their website, and they had complied immediately with all the stipulations the FDA gave. The citation had nothing to do with purposely misleading customers or being deceptive about the contents of their products.
- We had also suggested Green Garden Gold reviews on their site were either faked by advertisers, or made unavailable, or non-existent. Upon further investigation, we have learned that this too was utterly false, and that the reviews on their site were made by real people, with documented proof of such.
We had compared their products to snake oil, and we apologize for this slander.
- We had also mis-quoted the FDA citation and claimed that the FDA had declared that only 1 out of 25 of Green Garden Gold bottles has the proper amount of CBD in them. This was completely false and we apologize for this erroneous statement.
- We had claimed that Green Garden Gold were deliberately defrauding their customers, because we failed to validate our sources of information and this too was untrue.
- We apologize for the obvious defamation of the Green Garden Gold brand. We had done this by using words and phrases such as “Shady,” “Smoke and mirrors,” “Deceiving their customers” and so on.
We apologize for mis-quoting the social media comments in order to further defame the Green Garden Gold brand. Our perspective had been colored by false and non-validated research.
- We also must apologize for suggesting that Green Garden Gold products may not contain what Green Garden Gold claimed they contain. The author mis-interpreted lab results and created false assumptions.
- We also retract our statement that Green Garden Gold may have improper amounts of THC which will make people fail drug tests. All of their products are below the federal requirement of .3% THC, and they are in full compliance with that requirement.
- We retract our claims that Green Garden Gold was knowingly misleading their customers with deceptive labeling.
In response to our article giving a bad review of Green Garden Gold, the president and CEO was nice enough to contact us and help us update our information. We are glad to have their participation and look forward to upgrading their grade.

Ingredients for Green Garden Gold CBD Coconut Oil
- MCT Coconut Oil
- Contains MCT’s aka medium chain triglycerides, a type of healthy fat which provides immediate energy without yoyoing your blood sugar
- A dropper provides 9 calories from healthy MCTs
- Hemp extract (33mg)
- Contains CBD, but well below therapeutic levels
- CBD is the main anti-inflammatory cannabinoid in the industrial hemp extract. This is the active ingredient which provides relief from anxiety and pain syndromes without producing a psychoactive effect or other side effects
- Natural flavoring
- Green Garden Gold CBD oil Terpenes like myrcene add flavor
- Terpenes are known to boost the therapeutic effect of CBD
- Other non-psychoactive cannabinoids, but no THC
- Cannabinoids other than CBD and THC are known to aid in the therapeutic effects of CBD.
How it works
CBD is cannabidiol which has been shown to reduce symptoms in seizure disorders and shows promise in treating many other discomforts, especially involving pain and hyperexcitation.
Terpenes like myrcene and limonene provide fruity scents and taste, and also boost the effect of cannabidiol and other terpenes.
Medium chain triglycerides provide a healthy form of quick energy that will not affect your blood sugar. MCTs raise your good cholesterol.
Other cannabinoids in hemp oil also have some therapeutic effect, reducing inflammation and boosting the effects of the other ingredients. This is called the ‘entourage’ effect.
Coconut oil contains several saturated (saturated fats from natural sources like milk and animals are healthy in moderation, not to be confused with artificially saturated fat such as partially-hydrogenated oils) fatty acids with health benefits including:
- stearic acid
Coconut oil also contains monounsaturated, including oleic acid which has anti-cancer effects. There are also polyunsaturated fats like linoleic oil, important for skin and brain function.
Oil derived from hemp will contain levels of other phytonutrients from the hemp plant.
How to Use GGG CBD Coconut oil
Since you have coconut oil in a dropper, you can put a dose under your tongue, in your coffee, or on your skin. A dropper full will have 10 to 33 mg of hemp extract. In general however, one half to one dropper full will be a beginning dose to try if you know you are not allergic to cannabis products. If you do not know, use one drop, wait 90 mins. Then try a few more drops, wait. If no bad reaction, continue with a dropper full and go from there.

This is used to show the product uses supercritical CO2 extraction which is supposed to produce a cleaner and more potent product.
GGG’s hemp is sourced in Colorado, a type of hemp which is universally considered to be of a high quality. We give GGG the thumbs up for making sure they have the best hemp source. This makes all the difference.
This stamp indicates a product which contains the full entourage of cannabinoids, not just CBD, while still lacking THC (below 0.3 %).
This stamp indicates security measures have been taken to protect your identity and financial information.
Standout Features and Negatives
If Green Garden Gold has something above their competitors, I would start with the website. It is well-done and extensive. The President and CEO appears in a video to vouch for the products, unlike some sites that provide no information about employees, the company, location, or means of production. Green Garden is one of the most transparent sites I’ve seen. They even picture their main headquarters.
As far as quality control, they claim to use third party testing and post the results of lab analyses online. All of these are good signs. The products are also well-packaged and labeled which is very important for you to remain on the right side of the law. These products should be carried in their original containers and boxes because they may smell like weed oil and in jurisdictions where that is illegal, this could get you in trouble even if when it is all said and done, the court rules that you were in the bounds of the law (this situation happened in the USA, all charges dropped but no reimbursement for the jail time the poor guy experienced).
GGG has at least 24 products from balms to Green Garden Gold cbd, terpenes alone, and many other products so you will not lack for ways to take these products.
A possible negative is that since this is a supplement and not a medicine, you have to do your own research and experimentation about how to use the product. You can start with mere drops under the tongue to test for allergies or side effects and move on to half a dropper, then a dropper, always waiting 90 minutes to test effects.
Does Green Garden CBD Coconut oil have any side effects?
Green Garden Gold CBD Coconut oil has few side effects. Normal amounts do not contain enough calories to put you over your caloric limit for the day, although fats have more calories than protein or sugars. Therefore, if you are going to cook with this coconut oil, measure your fat calories the same as you would with any other type of oil. This oil is a fat, though a healthy one, but in excess can have negative health consequences.
|CBD Safety facts|
In general, CBD is safe and well-tolerated. Doses above 300 mg should have a doctor’s monitoring.

No. This is a real company that sells to real customers, not a multi-level marketing operation. These products are worth a try.
CBD oil disclaimers (please read, this is important):
General Medical Disclaimer: NCSM and its employees and partners do not represent the medical establishment and our information is not a replacement for your doctor’s advice.
FDA Disclaimer: Use of CBD products with the exception of Epidiolex and Sativex have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
Drug Screening Disclaimer: While most CBD products claim to have little to no THC, it is theoretically possible to fail a drug test for THC. This can happen because some CBD products have been tested to have far more THC than represented on the label. Also, CBD is similar in structure to THC.
