It’s no secret that we’ve been huge Medterra fans for a longtime. When they reached out recently to inform us that they were releasing a brand new Wellness line we were very eager to give the products a try and provide you with a Medterra Wellness line review.

Before we dig into the new Wellness product line, however, we wanted to give an overview of the brand. With so many new CBD users popping up weekly, we thought it would be a good idea to give a Medterra  brand philosophy so you can gain some knowledge about their farming practices, extraction methods, and third-party testing. 

Medterra is all about making the finest CBD products available. According to the company website, Medterra loves being “part of something that has helped many find improvement in their quality of life… We are constantly focusing on how to get this natural resource available to those who are searching for it.”  Every interaction we have had with the company over the years has solidified what their site communicates as well. 

Medterra’s competitive advantage is “dedication to each and every customer of Medterra,” they say. “There’s nothing we hold closer to our hearts than our customers’ well-being.”

Medterra’s values are centered around three key concepts: 

  • Caring for Others
  • Continual Innovation
  • CBD for All

Medterra is U.S. Hemp Authority™ Certified which means that they have shown the desire to provide customers with the highest-quality CBD products and customer service.

According to their website, Medterra’s team of experts and partners “have dedicated their lives to industrial farming methodologies, food-grade compound extraction, vegetable genetics, and quality control, just to name a few.”

A large part of the Medterra operation is researching and formulating new products as well as sourcing the finest ingredients for each new formula. The company’s vision is to always be developing and introducing new products. “We’re on a mission to innovate,” they say. “Our entire team is passionate about introducing new products that help others in exciting ways… We won’t stop until we’re satisfied that we have something for everyone, and every pet, out there.” And they’re not kidding. They offer a ton of different products. As you can see from this new very expansive Wellness line, they practice what they preach. This line has so many products we had to reconfigure our food pantry to fit them all!

The Medterra website has plenty of helpful information, blog articles, and guides about CBD and its uses. It also includes over 5,700 customer reviews with a 4.5-star rating. 

The site also contains a vast list of “best of” articles posted in various online publications in which their products are listed among the most highly recommended CBD products. 

Medterra has some of the friendliest staff, and their site exudes that neighborly feel, “our doors are always open (during business hours),” the website says. “So if you’re in the area and want to chat – feel free. We’re a friendly bunch and we’re always working on getting better. We can’t wait to share what’s next!”

Started by a group of individuals passionate about the power of CBD products, Medterra believes CBD should be available to all those in need at an affordable price. The company also has a highly-qualified five-member advisory board made up of doctors and veterinarians that specialize in cannabinoid-based therapies. 

The driving force behind CEO, Jay Hartenbach, decision to launch Medterra was his “enduring passion regarding the incredible benefits of CBD.” (Hartenback was recently featured in an article in USA Today about the CBD industry).

“We couldn’t wait to do something worthwhile with our time that helps others by potentially improving their quality of life,” says Hartenbach. “It warms our hearts to know that we’re able to play a hand in something this amazing.”

All visitors to the online CBD store can pick up a 15% discount (use code CBDSCHOOL). They also offer a customer rewards program under which customers can earn points towards purchases, as well as a referral bonus of $20 for referring a friend or family member. 

Medterra Hemp Farming Practices

Medterra says that their line of CBD oils, tinctures and creams start at American hemp farms in Kentucky in accordance with strict guidelines set by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program. According to Medterra, Kentucky offers a long growing season and rich soil “that has been tilled for hundreds of years.” 

Medterra’s hemp crops are grown without toxic herbicides such as glyphosate.

Extraction Method

Medterra uses solventless CO2 extraction techniques. Unlike solvent-based extraction methods, CO2 extraction produces a much cleaner product with fewer unwanted compounds such as chlorophyll which can make hemp extract bitter. 

Manufacturing and Testing Practices

Medterra’s products comply with the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification program. This is an industry initiative to set high standards for hemp and CBD companies including best manufacturing and quality control practices.

All of the hemp extracts used by Medterra undergo independent, third-party lab testing to assure they contain no contaminates, pesticides, or THC.

Certificates of Analysis for all Medterra products are readily available on their website including information on each batch of the product.

Medterra Wellness Products

For this Medterra CBD products review we obtained four of their products:

  • Stress Support CBD capsules
  • Immune Boost CBD gummies
  • Nature’s Relief CBD skin cream
  • Immune Boost CBD oil tincture

The first three products come in interesting white square bottles with their logo and a big “CBD” in the center. Between that and the big purple lids you can’t miss these Medterra products. 

All of Medterra’s products contain their “ultra broad-spectrum” hemp extract which includes a 10:1 Ratio CBD to other minor cannabinoids such as CBG, CBN, CBC, CBDV. It also contains natural terpenes.

All of the products have a scannable QR code that takes the user instantly to a complete list of COA (certificate of analysis). It wasn’t hard to find the COA for a particular product within the list. Very handy for those who do their due diligence.

Note that the numbers on the bottles represent the amount of CBD hemp extract in the product, not the actual amount of CBD (which can be found on the COA). That being said, the recommended serving sizes do provide suitable doses of CBD for their intended use. Medterra’s hemp extract also contains natural terpenes.

All of the products have the 1% For the Planet logo which means that they donate 1% of proceeds to environmental causes. The plastic bottles are made from 100% recyclable plastic that’s also 20% plant-based.  

In addition to these four CBD product reviews below, Medterra also offers a veritable plethora of other products and formulas. The company also sells a lineup of pet CBD products with formulas created specifically for cats or dogs. Medterra offers both CBD chewy treats and CBD drops in a variety of formulas and flavors.

Medterra Immune Support CBD Oil Elixir

Up first, we have here a two-ounce dropper bottle with a total of 1,000 milligrams of CBD hemp extract. The serving size is two droppers full. We’re not sure how much each contains, so we can’t say for sure how long a supply the product provides. Assuming it’s a 30-day supply like the other products here that would be around 30 milligrams per day. 

The formula includes elderberry extract, echinacea extract, astragalus extract, and amla fruit powder. Elderberry and echinacea are widely used in immune-boosting formulas. Astragalus is used for antioxidant support and general vitality. And amla: is considered a superfood that is loaded with vitamin C.

The flavor is fruity and tolerable enough to hold it sublingually (under the tongue) before swallowing it, however, you might want to have a chaser handy. You can also just mix it into a glass of water.

In addition to this Immune Boost elixir, Medterra also offers an Antioxidant Boost formula that contains Camu Camu berry which is loaded with vitamin C and other nutrients, as well as sea buckthorn (aka Siberian pineapple) for its beneficial fatty acids.

Medterra Immune Support CBD Gummies

This product, although it has the same name as the tincture reviewed above, includes vitamin C and zinc along with elderberry extract. It does not contain echinacea or astragalus. 

These vegan gummies have a pleasant fruity/citrusy flavor, but you can definitely taste the vitamin C and zinc. We found it nice that they don’t seem to stick to teeth as easily as some CBD gummies. 

In addition to the Immune boost gummies, Medterra also offers Keep Calm, Sleep Tight, and Stay Alert formulas.

Medterra Immune Support CBD Capsules

Medterra’s Stress Support CBD capsules contain reishi, ashwagandha, and holy basil in addition to their 10:1 hemp extract. Reishi, an adaptogenic mushroom, ashwagandha (aka Indian ginseng), holy basil (tulsi), and the amino acid L-theanine are all widely used for stress relief. 

The package also mentions “liposomal delivery” which makes the product “20 times more bioavailable.” This means the hemp extract is encapsulated in microscopic capsules which decreases the amount of cannabinoids that get absorbed into fatty tissue and increases the amount that gets into the bloodstream.

In addition to the Stress Support formula, Medterra also offers Energy, Eye Health, and Sleep Well formulas.

Medterra Nature’s Relief Daily Cream

The bullet points on the bottle say that the product promotes a healthy inflammatory response, soothes skin irritation, protects against bacteria, and moisturizes the skin.

Aloe is widely used in a variety of skincare products for its soothing and nourishing properties. Ashwagandha, also known as Indian ginseng is used to manage stress. And peppermint is an antibacterial that also provides a soothing cooling effect. Although it doesn’t specifically mention this on the package, arnica is also widely used in sports creams such as Tiger Balm to soothe sore muscles. 

In addition to this product, Medterra also offers a few other topicals formulated to relieve pain and stiffness in joints and muscles.

Final Thoughts on Medterra's Wellness line

We were kind of blown away by Medterra’s new Wellness product line. Not only is the new product line almost as expansive as most CBD brands full line, but the quality of the products was great to see, taste and feel! Many CBD product manufacturers just put CBD or hemp extract into a base and call it day. Medterra, on the other hand put a lot of thought into their multi-supplement formulas. We can definitely recommend Medterra’s Wellness product line to our readers without hesitation.
