Ignite CBD is a household brand in the CBD marketplace. The company was established in 2018 by Dan Bilzerian – a social media guru who capitalized on his massive following to market this elite CBD brand. Despite having been established recently, the company already enjoys a stellar reputation for its quality and effective line of products. The company boasts a market share overseas, including the UK and Mexico (2019) and Canada and the Middle East (2020).
Ignite CBD has established itself as a mainstay CBD brand by utilizing premium quality US-grown hemp, along with an industry-standard ethanol extraction method that is thought to preserve hemp’s volatile nutrients in its extracts. The company’s website includes a section that outlines laboratory reports from licensed and ISO-certified independent third-party testers, not to mention their customer-friendly interfaces that work in tandem with the company’s mission – to provide the ultimate CBD experience that meets the needs of consumers.
Compared to other mainstream brands, Ignite CBD offers its products at pocket-friendly prices, with a milligram of CBD going for anywhere between $0.06 to $0.18. Further, their product categories come in varying potencies, CBD strength, concentrations, size, and quantities. As already indicated, their company’s customer-facing interfaces such as the website and customer service team are quite friendly and responsive. For starters, their website is designed intuitively to ease navigation and make your shopping journey as seamless as possible. Secondly, the company runs open lines of communication, which include a phone number, a support email address, and a physical address.
Regarding their product line, the company started with a narrow yet decent and quality range, including tinctures, vapes, and topicals. This is understandable because the founders are quite picky and don’t want to flood the market. However, its founders still harbor the ambition of diversifying their product line. Overall, all aspects of Ignite CBD company are quite impressive, beyond all reasonable standards. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the company’s origins, its manufacturing and product formulation practices, and what they have to offer in its catalog.
About the Company
Ignite CBD is an elite, California-based hemp brand founded in 2018 by Dan Bilzerian – a social media guru, celebrity, and entrepreneur. Looking at its lifespan so far, the company is relatively at its infancy stage. However, its meteoric rise in the US hemp scene has had it make tremendous strides to the household name that it is today. The founder, Bilzerian, took advantage of his massive Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook following to market this elite brand. Also, behind the scenes, the company strives to offer unique, quality, and specially formulated products that redefine the legitimacy of the hemp experience. It is for that reason that its CBD vape pens were branded the best in the US by High Times – popular cannabis and consumer information publication.
Ignite CBD has broken the glass ceiling, and the sky is the limit. Its three years in operation have seen the company expand its coverage to overseas CBD markets. In 2019, the company launched operations in the UK and Mexico, with the latest addition being the Middle East and Canada (2020). Overall, the company scored highly in the major aspects of quality, third-party assurance, accuracy, hemp source, transparency, and reputation.
Regarding its manufacturing practices, the company uses American grown hemp from licensed organic farmlands in Oregon. That, coupled with gold-standard extraction practices and product formulation – which is done in-house in quality-controlled and GMD-approved facilities in California – makes Ignite CBD an elite brand. The company adheres to eco-friendly and sustainable hemp cultivation practices, which is why they partner only with local Oregon farmers who utilize organic and non-GMO agricultural practices. The independent third-party lab testing is also done with reputable partners, who ensure their products are certified pure, consistent, accurate, and are free from herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, among other contaminants.
Ignite CBD’s website provides adequate information for customer access, ranging from lines of communication, physical store addresses, an email address, a phone number, and an extensive FAQ page that highlights basic information about CBD, shipping, returns, deliveries, and customer care support. Moreover, the “Investor” section of the website shades lighter on the company’s leadership, management, and team of formulation experts. Every corresponding product page indicates CBD strength, price points, ingredient list, dosage, consumption method, usage instructions, and suggested uses.
All said and done, we were quite impressed with Ignite CBD’s business and operation model because there were no obvious or glaring flaws, starting from seed to sale. The company’s reputation gets a kick from its popular celebrity founder, who utilizes top-notch marketing strategies.
Shipping and Returns Policies
The company runs one of the most comprehensive shipping and deliveries while ensuring customers enjoy the hemp experience at their doorstep as quickly as possible. That said, the company has certain geographical exceptions in which it has no clearance to serve consumers. And at the time of writing this review, Ignite CBD does not ship its products to Idaho, Nebraska, South and North Dakota, Kansas, Montana, Iowa, and Mississippi.
However, its shipping criteria are quite convenient. The company offers free shipping on all US orders above $40 in select states. Once you place your order, it takes up to 24 hours to be confirmed and dispatched, with deliveries being made within 2 to 5 days. In the event you are dissatisfied with your package, the company offers a 30-day money-back satisfaction guarantee that you can take advantage of.

We accessed Ignite CBD’s manufacturing and extraction details via the FAQ page. For starters, the company uses US-grown hemp from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. After digging deeper, we realized that the company is eco-conscious and adheres to organic and sustainable farming approaches that conserve mother nature. However, we could not immediately tell whether those cultivation standards are GMP or USDA-certified.
The company conducts in-house and quality-controlled product formulation in its California-based GMP facility. Here, a premium ethanol extraction method is employed to obtain the extract. Since the company specializes in unique CBD isolate formulations, the company further utilizes short pathway distillation criteria, along with double crystallization to purify the isolate extracts. The extract undergoes these processes to concentrate pure CBD and eliminate THC.
The short path distillation process involves slow heating and is done to separate CBD from other hemp components at the molecular level. This process is considered the industry standard in obtaining CBD-rich extract. As opposed to organic solvents, distillation delivers clean extracts void of residual solvents. Thereafter, recrystallization is done to ensure pure extracts. The next step, which is product formulation, is done in-house too, with the company utilizing all organic and non-GMO ingredients. Their CBD oils are infused with MCT oil for maximum bioavailability, while active ingredients such as menthol are infused into the topical creams for optimal efficacy. Other steps of manufacturing such as packaging, bottling, and labeling are done in their California facility where the company enlists specialized help of technicians and product formulation experts.
As an FDA-GMP measure, all brands are required to conduct quality assurance on all their products. On its part, Ignite CBD uses the services of Evio Laboratories – an ISO-17025-accredited lab with a massive reputation. Independent third-party lab testing with such an institution ensures the delivery of the most accurate and precise results. Once the lab results on all batches have been obtained, Ignite CBD posts this information on their website, and can also be accessed via product QR codes and batch numbers.
