Medterra Company History
Medterra presents itself as a friendly, approachable brand committed to providing high-quality and innovative CBD products for an affordable price.
To help customers get to know their team, Medterra shares several staff photos on the company website and social media. The company also publishes regular blog articles about trending topics in the CBD industry. In their commitment to affordability, Medterra offers some of the lowest pricing we’ve seen among CBD brands, while still maintaining a high level of quality.
The Medterra office is based in Irvine, CA.
Hemp Farming and Sourcing Practices
Medterra sources their non-GMO, organic hemp through local farms registered with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture Industrial Hemp Pilot Program.
The company uses a CO2 extraction process to extract their CBD oils from the hemp. CO2 extraction is one of the safest and most effective methods for extracting CBD oil, ensuring a high concentration of CBD while removing potential toxins or unbeneficial plant materials. After extraction, Medterra’s CBD oils undergo additional processing to be formed into CBD isolates, so they contain 99% pure CBD. The entire process takes place in the U.S., from the farming of the hemp to extraction and production of the CBD oils.
Before making their products available to consumers, Medterra sends all of their CBD extracts to a third-party lab, typically either Green Scientific Labs and Pro Verde, for testing. The lab analyzes the cannabinoid profile and concentration of CBD in each product, and also tests to confirm that they are free of pesticides, residual solvents, heavy metals, and bacteria.
Medterra Product Selection
As CBD isolates, all Medterra products contain 99% pure CBD, without any THC. To ensure a maximum shelf life, products should be stored in a cool, dry area.

Their CBD Oil Tinctures are Mederra’s most popular product. Their CBD oils contain 99% CBD with MCT (fractionated coconut) oil as a base, with no other ingredients. The tinctures come in three strengths: 500mg, 1000mg, and 3000mg, which contain 16mg, 33mg, and 100mg of CBD per serving, respectively.
A serving size is 1 full dropper, and each bottle contains 30 servings. For those new to CBD, Medterra recommends starting with one full dropper of the oil under your tongue each morning or evening, and adjusting from there. The droppers are graduated from 0.25 to 1ml, so you can easily adjust your dose if needed.
For those who prefer to take their CBD like a daily vitamin, Medterra offers a variety of CBD capsules. They sell both traditional CBD capsules (the CBD extract in a softgel form), as well as capsules that combine the CBD extract with additional natural ingredients, to serve different wellness needs:
- CBD Gel Capsules: These are traditional CBD softgels, containing Medterra’s 99% pure CBD isolate, with a base of MCT oil and bovine gelatin. They’re available in two strengths: 25mg and 50mg. Each bottle contains 30 capsules.
- Good Morning Capsules: In addition to 25mg of CBD, these gel capsules also contain 400mg of L-Tyrosine, 200mg of L-Theanine, 50mg of caffeine, and vitamins B6 and B12 for a daily energy boost. Medterra recommends taking two capsules daily in the morning. Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
- CBD + Melatonin: These mix in 10mg of melatonin with 25mg of CBD to promote restful sleep. Rather than gel capsules, these are dissolvable tablets that should be placed under the tongue, and fully dissolved before swallowing. Each tablet is lined so they can be cut in half, to provide a half-serving of CBD and melatonin. Additional ingredients include avocado oil powder, spearmint, stevia, d-mannitol, xylitol, crospovidone, dibasic calcium phosphate anhydrous, magnesium stearate, and silica dioxide. Each bottle contains 30 capsules.
- CBD Monthly Wellness: These capsules are designed to relieve pain and discomfort during a woman’s monthly menstrual cycle. Each softgel contains 25mg of CBD, along with natural menstrual pain relievers like cramp bark (300mg), chaste berry tree (250mg), dong quai (150mg), valerian root (125mg), and caffeine (50mg). Medterra recommends taking 2 capsules up to 4 times daily during your period or for as long as symptoms last. Each bottle contains 60 capsules.
Medterra sells a single CBD topical, intended to relieve aching muscles and joints. Each bottle of their CBD Rapid Cooling Cream contains 100ml of cream, so you can apply liberally to areas as needed.
Medterra’s CBD cream comes in two strengths: 250mg or 750mg. Besides the CBD, the cooling cream includes menthol for cooling relief, along with a long list of natural (and in many cases, organic) ingredients designed to relieve pain or moisturize skin, such as safflower seed oil, tea tree oil, rosemary leaf extract, lemon peel oil, and basil leaf oil. These natural extracts also lend the cream a pleasant smell.
Medterra’s CBD cream does contain some artificial ingredients in order to form the cream, such as non-GMO xanthan gum and phenoxyethanol.
CBD Oil for Pets
Medterra is committed to making CBD oil available to all, including those of us with four legs. They offer two CBD pet products (a tincture and treats) which are formulated using their same quality CBD isolate and natural ingredients. While they’re advertised as CBD products for pets, their flavor varieties will probably be best appreciated by your dog.
- CBD Pet Tincture: Medterra’s CBD pet oil comes in three flavors (beef, chicken, and natural/unflavored) and three strengths (150mg, 300mg, and 750mg) to suit varying appetites and health needs. The ingredients list for these is simple: it’s just the CBD isolate, with a base of MCT oil, and natural beef or chicken flavoring. For best results, Medterra recommends administering the tinctures sublingually. It’s worth noting that the 300mg contains the same concentration as the 150mg bottle; it’s just in a larger bottle and available for a cheaper cost per mg. The 750mg bottle is in the same 30ml-sized bottle as the 300mg, so this one contains a higher dose of CBD with each serving.
- CBD Pet Joint Support: These dog treats include 10mg of CBD with each soft chew, in a peanut butter flavor your pet will love. In addition to the CBD extract, these contain 200mg of MSM, 400mg of glucosamine, and 300mg of chondroitin to support canine joint health. Additional ingredients include chickpea flour, potato flour, cane molasses, tapioca starch, glycerin, lecithin, safflower oil, ascorbic acid, sorbic acid, calcium propionate, vitamin E, and artificial peanut butter flavoring. Medterra recommends the following doses, doses based on your pet’s weight:
|Pet Weight||Recommended Daily Dose|
|Under 25 pounds||½ chew|
|25 to 50 pounds||1 chew|
|51 to 75 pounds||1½ chews|
|Over 75 pounds||2 chews|
Our Take on Medterra
Here’s a recap of the pros and cons of Medterra. We understand some of these may matter more or less to you, so read below for more details.
|High-quality, THC-free CBD oils, capsules, topicals, and pet products|
100% organic, non-GMO, Kentucky grown hemp
Third-party lab tested
Bundle pricing and military discounts available
30-day money-back guarantee
Available online and in local retailers
|Products contain MCT oil, which may be an issue for those with coconut allergies|
Dissolvable sleep capsules contain natural and artificial sweeteners
Oil tinctures are all-natural (which is a pro), but there are no flavored versions available to mask the taste of hemp
No full-spectrum CBD oils
While Medterra only sells a few types of CBD products, the products they do have meet a range of user preferences. For those interested in all-natural tincture, there are their unflavored CBD oils, available in low to high strengths. For those looking to combine CBD with their other wellness needs, such as menstrual pain or insomnia relief, there are their capsules and topicals.
The main type of CBD user Medterra doesn’t provide for are those who prefer full-spectrum CBD oils. As THC-free CBD isolates, their products may not provide the “entourage effect” these folks are looking for. However, these CBD isolates are ideal for anyone who wants 0% THC in their CBD oils. They’re also ideal for dogs, as they can be more sensitive to THC than humans are—even when it’s in the trace amounts you find with full-spectrum CBD oils.
Vegans should note that while Medterra’s products contain a majority of natural and organic ingredients, there are some made from animal materials, such as the bovine gelatin in their softgel capsules.
Medterra sources their non-GMO hemp from local Kentucky farms who practice organic farming methods. The company has been certified by the U.S. Hemp Authority, speaking to the quality of Medterra’s hemp sourcing and manufacturing practices.
Medterra also takes care to provide detailed ingredients lists for all of their products, noting whether ingredients are natural or organic, and outlining the specific strengths of different added ingredients (as with their capsules).
Because they contain 0% THC, Medterra’s CBD products will not produce a high, nor should they cause a positive result on a drug test for marijuana. In addition to CBD, their isolate may contain trace amounts of additional cannabinoids like CBDV and CBD.
You can view a copy of the latest test results on each product page, or via a dedicated QR Codes page on the Medterra website. These QR codes are printed on the label of each product, so you can simply scan them to look up the lab results for your specific batch.
Medterra provides the full third-party lab results for each strength and variation of their products. Each lab certificate is thorough, including separate analyses of the cannabinoid content (for potency), as well as the lack of pesticides, residual solvents, and microbials (for safety and quality).
Medterra’s CBD tinctures do not have any added flavoring, so they maintain their natural earthy hemp taste. If you don’t enjoy the taste of hemp, you can try their flavorless CBD capsules.
Ordering and Shipping Process
Medterra ships to all fifty United States and many international locations. Orders are shipped within 1 to 2 business days. Typically, if an order is placed before 12pm Pacific on a weekend, it may be shipped out that same day.
The default shipping option is USPS First Class, unless the customer upgrades to expedited shipping via USPS Priority Mail, FedEx SmartPost, FedEx Express Saver, FedEx 2 Day or FedEx Standard Overnight
The Medterra customer service team is available weekdays 6am to 5pm, and Saturday 8am to 2pm, all on Pacific time. They can be reached via phone, email, web form, and live chat.
Under their 30-day money back guarantee, you can return items for a full refund, minus the cost of return shipping. This return policy only applies to products purchased on the Medterra website.

Medterra claims it’s their mission to make quality CBD affordable to all. True to their word, they offer some of the most competitive pricing in the industry. Their tinctures and capsules range from $0.04 to $0.08 per mg. At $0.10 to $0.18 per mg, their topicals and pet products are more expensive, but that’s common to see with those product types. Very few quality CBD brands offer pricing as low as theirs; they may be bested only by CBDistillery and Sunsoil.
And yet, the company still offers additional ways to save through their generous bundle program. Medterra sells several themed bundles that include two of their related products for a discounted price. For example, their Morning Wellness bundle includes the 3000mg CBD tincture and 25mg Good Morning capsules for over 15% off the price they would cost when purchased separately.
Customers can also create their own custom bundle for steeper discounts. You can bundle two products for 5% off, three for 15% off, and four or more for 20% off.
The company also offers discounts to qualified individuals through their Military and Long-Term Disability programs. Finally, Medterra has a Customer Rewards program, where you can earn points for your purchases, referring your friends, and sharing on social media.
