The dutch TV program “Keuringsdienst van Waarde” (Roughly translated as: “Value Judging Service”) has tested the CBD oil of promiment, like Jacob Hooy, Lucovitaal, Medihemp and Kruidvat: What is the best CBD oil? And how reliable are the packages? Neuroscientist and CBD expert Matthijs Bossong investigated how much CBD oil is actually contained in the bottles and came to surprising insights. Jacob Hooy’s CBD oil emerged the winner from the test.

Keuringsdienst van Waarde: CBD oil

CBD oil has gained a lot of popularity in the last few years. The refined cannabis oil is used for various purposes, including pain relief, concentration improvement and calming. There are always new brands of CBD oil appearing, which makes it difficult for the consumer to judge which CBD brands are reliable.

“Keuringsdienst van Waarde” decided to test the most well-known brands of CBD oil in their latest “Keuringsdienst van Waarde” CBD test.

Comparing CBD oil

Comparing CBD oil was done based on the concentration of CBD oil actually contained in the bottles. For example, the label says 5% or 2.5%. This indicates the concentration of CBD. But is this really the case?

The Inspection Service decided to compare 7 of the best known CBD brands on the above. For consumers, this is important to know since CBD oil is not cheap. Too low a concentration of CBD oil makes for a worse working product and is obviously less good for the wallet. Too high a concentration of CBD makes for a less effective dosage.

Which brand has the best CBD oil?

In the test of the Keuringsdienst van Waarde, the following brands of CBD oil were tested and compared with each other:

  • Jacob Hooy
  • Holland & Barrett
  • Lucovitaal
  • Kruidvat
  • MediHemp
  • Cibiday
  • Natural People

The result of the CBD test of KVW is as follows:

Brand Label Value Measurement 1 Measurement 2 Conclusion of “Keuringsdienst…”
Jacob Hooy 5% 5,07% 4,94% Good product!
Cibiday 2,5% 2,84% 2,86% Good product! Concentration CBD too high…
Holland & Barrett 2,8% 2,64% 2,61% Product deviates by 5%.
Product contains insoluble particles
Kruidvat 2,75% 2,39% 2,47% Product does not comply with label value
Product contains insoluble solids
MediHemp 2,5% 1,56% 2,41% Sample 1 deviates widely
Not homogeneous!
Natural People 4% 2,74% 2,98% Large batch-to-batch variation
Product contains insoluble solids
Lucovitaal 2,8% 1,37% 1,42% Product deviates by more than 50%.
Product contains insoluble solids

As can be seen, Jacob Hooy CBD oil comes out of the test as the best brand. As the only brand in the test where the concentrations of CBD oil of Jacob Hooy correspond to the label value. Cibiday’s CBD oil also scored well, but has a higher concentration of CBD than stated. This makes it more difficult to dose correctly.

At all other tested brands the concentration of CBD oil in the product deviates in a negative way from the value on the label. This means that you actually get less CBD (= active ingredient) than you pay for. In some brands of CBD oil, a negative deviation of 50% was observed: the bottles therefore contained half as much CBD as indicated on the packaging.

Also, some brands of CBD oil contain solid particles which are insoluble. The CBD oils of Jacob Hooy, Cibiday and MediHemp do not contain this.

Jacob Hooy CBD oil

The best CBD oil according to the test of the Keuringdienst van Waarde is that of Jacob Hooy. Jacob Hooy is a Dutch company of more than 250 years old and one of the few companies with the royal distinction “Hofleverancier”. Jacob Hooy CBD oil can be found on the shelves of Holland & Barrett, Dille & Kamille, Etos and many other drugstores, health shops and web shops.

CBD Oil from Jacob Hooy is available in concentrations of 2.75%, 5% and 10%. In comparison with other brands in the market, Jacob Hooy’s CBD oil is competitively priced.

In addition, the brand recently launched a new line of CBD products aimed at high performance called ‘CBD Performance’. The products of CBD Performance are enriched with other oils, vitamins and herbs to support thinking, performing and sports at a high level.
