We carefully select each of our products for their consistency and quality. Each product we receive is third-party lab tested to verify its cannabinoid potency, THC levels, and more before joining our ever-increasing list of effective CBD products.

Our process is simple: if a product doesn’t test with equal or more cannabinoids than advertised, we absolutely will not carry it. Products containing more than the legal amount of THC (.3%) or any CBD oil derived from marijuana are also not carried on our site.

We aim to offer the best and most extensive collection of hemp products. At Made By Hemp, you can be confident you’re choosing from the best products in the industry.

Our Process

How do we choose which products to carry?

Step 1

Discovery & Vetting

Sometimes companies reach out to us about carrying their products, but 99% of our brands were selected by our own research —or by strong customer request.

When vetting products, we must determine:

What makes this product unique?
If it is competitively priced?
Is the hemp oil properly sourced and tested?
Are the ingredients natural and honest?

Step 2

Lab Test

Everything goes through a testing phase before we even consider carrying it. No exceptions. Although we have our own testing equipment that we like to fire up on occasion, we understand the importance of non-biased reports.

That’s why all products are 3rd-party lab tested to confirm the cannabinoid content advertised on the packaging.

It’s very simple: if the product doesn’t pass this test, we notify the manufacturer and move on. We don’t publicise products that test poorly —but it’s surprising how many there are.

Step 3

Taste Test

Admittedly, it’s no secret that hemp oil usually doesn’t taste great. Perhaps it’s cruel for us to make our employees taste all of these products —but we promise they’re happy to do it for you!

Before on-boarding a new product, we use ourselves as guinea pigs. When testing a potential addition to the Made By Hemp store, we note the following for our final consensus:

Flavor
Potency / Effectiveness
Uniqueness

Step 4

You

Our customers are the leading force behind what’s in our store.

Once we add a new product, the final step never ends. We read your reviews and take all feedback seriously to determine if a product is effective and well-liked.

Whenever you try a product, please go to the product page on our site and leave a review! Or feel free to email us your reviews.

When vetting products, we must determine:

What makes this product unique?

If the manufacturer is reputable and
Whether or not the ingredients are natural and honest

We Use Only The Best Hemp

from Farms in the USA

Made in Michigan

In addition to offering reliable products from other companies, we also manufacture many of our own products.

After years of hard work, we finally cut the red ribbon on our Michigan production facility in early 2016. In order to meet your hemp needs at a quicker and more efficient pace, we moved to a new facility and built a larger, custom laboratory. Our new, 1,200 sq ft production lab is located just outside of Grand Rapids and is licensed by the state of Michigan.

That’s not all that’s changed, we are now a robust, customer-centric team of 30+ people and still growing! The Made By Hemp team follows strict quality guidelines to bring you trustworthy, high-quality products.

Properly Sourced Hemp Oil

All products listed here on our website use properly sourced industrial hemp oil.  Some of the brands we offer source their hemp from farms in Europe, using all of the best growing standards (otherwise we won’t carry it), but the vast majority of CBD oil products on our site are sourced domestically. ALL of the products we manufacture are sourced domestically and our hemp is never sourced from China.

We test all products listed on our site regularly for purity, potency, and more.

Helping others is our #1 priority and a concept that makes our jobs so rewarding. Our whole team has come together for various volunteering opportunities to help other companies and charities with like-minded goals.

Recently, we donated to Bowl for Kid’s Sake and took the whole team out for a night of bowling, fun, and of course, appreciation for what this volunteer-supported organization does for kids! Read more about the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization here.

Several times a year, our team members volunteer at Kids Food Basket in Grand Rapids, Michigan for an hour of preparing lunch or take-home meals for children in our area who wouldn’t already have them. Learn more about volunteering here to help your community by giving your most valuable currency—time.

When Christmas time rolls around, our team comes together to fulfill the wish list of 3 or more children through D.A. Blodgett St. Johns.

Thanks to your support, we also give to these charities:
