Cheef Botanicals is one of those brands that just does things right. They offer myriad product options, all of them clear as to what kind of CBD extract they hold as well as their cannabinoid levels.

Right off the bat, just by scrolling their site or seeing their products, it’s clear that Cheef Botanicals has perfected their line of CBD products. The company hails from Commerce, CA, but the experts behind Cheef source their hemp from Colorado for the best result possible.

Online, Cheef Botanicals boasts fantastic reviews with happy customers and positive experiences. Unfortunately, it appears as though many users found faults within their vape cartridges, but that Cheef chooses to no longer sell them now. So, if you’re looking for some powerful vape pens, you’ll have to turn to other brands like Bloom Farms or FAB CBD.

Other than subpar vapes and occasionally intense hemp flavors, overall, Cheef’s products do work well— and they get to work quickly. Every product produces slightly different effects on the body, and the efficacy of it all left me surprised but quite satisfied.

All in all, Cheef Botanicals’ products work incredibly well. The brand uses top-shelf ingredients and careful CO2 extraction methods to produce pure, potent CBD products that practically every consumer can enjoy. The packing of the products themselves could be a bit better, as they’re nothing to write home about. Some of the flavors within the oils are a bit strong, especially if you’re new to the world of CBD. But, at the end of the day, these products gave me immense relief, from full-body relaxation to stress relief and even some boosts of euphoria.

Editor’s Pick

  • It’s hard for me to turn down a pack of CBD pre-rolls when I see them. Often, a brand can either make these really well, or they’ll fall relatively flat. To my surprise, Cheef Botanicals’ Cookies pre-rolls taste just like a regular ol’ joint. The flavors were strong, the therapeutic effects were potent, and the pre-rolls didn’t leave me feeling like I just smoked some trim (like I so often feel when trying CBD flower). With five joints in each pack and at nearly 20% CBD, these pre-roll packs are definitely a favorite.

Cheef Botanicals CBD Oil

If you’re a beginner hoping to dip your toes into the world of CBD, Cheef’s 300mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil is a great place to start. This gentle oil contains only CBD and hemp seed oil to create a purer consumption experience. By using full-spectrum CBD extract, these oils celebrate full-plant components like minor cannabinoids and terpenes. This helps to create a fuller, more beneficial experience.

At only 300mg, I wouldn’t recommend this oil to anyone who has a bit of a tolerance to CBD, as it likely won’t be strong enough. But, for all you CBD newbies out there, this oil can be a great one. (Just bear in mind, you will have to taste some hemp.)

Product Summary

Cheef Botanicals’ 300mg Full-Spectrum CBD Oil is the perfect oil for cannabidiol beginners. The dose is quite mild but would produce gentle, supportive effects in those who need it. Personally, my tolerance was too high to notice anything other than some muscle relaxation and stress relief; beginners, however, may find these effects the perfect strength. The flavors within the oil are pretty strong, so mix it with your morning tea!

Cheef Botanicals CBD Flower: Northern Lights

Cheef Botanicals hemp flower

Sometimes, CBD hemp strains don’t offer the best flavor. Thankfully, that’s not the case at all for Cheef Botanicals. Their CBD hemp flower in the Northern Lights strain is some of the best CBD-filled bud I’ve had. You can tell that the brand takes their time to trim and manicure their CBD flower, giving you buds that are appealing to smoke.

The Northern Lights terpenes come out beautifully when smoking, too, leaving you in a world of spicy, skunky flavors. At 4 grams per jar and just over 20% CBD, Cheef Botanicals’ flower is a cut above the rest.

Product Summary

Cheef Botanicals’ Northern Lights CBD hemp flower comes in a child-proof container that keeps both your children and buds safe and sound. Just by looking, you can tell that Cheef manicured their flower well, giving you pretty, condensed nugs. The taste within this strain is delicious, but nothing compares to the strong pain-relieving effects: seriously, my body melted into a puddle of relaxation and comfort with this flower.

Cheef Botanicals CBD Gummies

Cheef Botanicals CBD gummies

All you vegans out there, we’ve found the perfect CBD product for you. Cheef Botanicals’ 300mg Full-Spectrum vegan CBD gummies contain absolutely no animal by-products or additives. Each gummy contains 10mg of Full-Spectrum hemp extract, perfect for consumers both new and old.

Fair warning, though, while these gummies don’t taste bad, they also don’t taste great. They have a bit of a neutral fruit-like profile but with more hemp undertones than anything. However, when the effects kicked in about 45 minutes later, I was more than happy with what I consumed. These gummies were the perfect solution to a long, tough day with their pain-relieving, calming properties.

Product Summary

These vegan gummies are packaged well, taste okay, but perform incredibly well. In the mouth, you’ll notice that these gummies have hemp inside, but they’re still easy to chew on— as long as you can get past the plant-like flavors, at least. In about an hour, I started to feel my muscles unclench, and my thoughts were much more organized. After a hard day at work, these gummies help you unwind, decompress, and forget about what happened in the office.
