Orange County CBD is a CBD company based in the UK (Liverpool). We first heard about these guys after seeing them featured in a 'Best CBD oil UK' article in an online newspaper, so decided to check them out. As always we'll be taking a look at their products closely and their reviews/customer service to see if they're worth your time. We'll be looking at:
Before we get into the article, if you'd like to see our recommendations for the best CBD brands to buy from in the UK then check out our guide here.
Let's get into it:
What we noticed about the Orange County CBD website is that there is a reasonably fleshed out 'About' page, but it doesn't include any information about the team or how the Orange County CBD brand was founded. This is a little bit of a shame as we really value seeing this information before we buy from any CBD brand, as we like to know who we're spending money with and why the brand was founded.

What we did find was that Orange County CBD has been featured in a number of 'Best CBD' type posts across the internet, with features everywhere from the Manchester Evening News to the Mirror. These placements are almost always paid for, but what this demonstrates to us is that the team behind Orange County CBD has money to invest in marketing and clearly believes in the product - so we actually see this as a bit of a positive.
What we'd really like to see are some faces and some names on the website (which is great looking by the way). We'll update this review if we see that Orange County CBD adds any more information to their website.
The first thing to note about the Orange County CBD product range is that the team prides itself (and derives their name) from the use of US hemp in all of their products. This definitely makes them stand out from most of the companies we review in the UK, who mostly tend to use hemp from Europe. Now this doesn't necessarily mean that the Orange County CBD will be any better than CBD products from brands using European hemp, but if you're like us and you appreciate having the choice then this is pretty awesome.
Anyway, onto the specific products now. Orange County CBD stocks everything from oils to vape pens & cartridges, and to be honest there is so much on their website that you're probably better to explore it yourself. But for the purposes of this review we'll focus on what appears to be their most popular product, their oils.
You've got a choice of 9 (!) different CBD oils to choose from, each of which features really unique and interesting branding. Every oil comes in a 30ml bottle which sometimes makes figuring out the concentrations a little confusing (most brands tend to use 10ml bottles).
The oils range in strength from 350mg to 3000mg. We should mention that the 350mg oil is salmon flavoured, and although it doesn't mention on the product page that it is made for dogs we assume that it is (not sure we fancy a salmon flavoured CBD oil). It's great to see both pipette and spray options for all of the oils, so you can use it as you please
The CBD gummies from Orange County CBD are probably the most popular product within their range. They've got quite a few options (we found more than 15 options) varying in strength and flavour. We recently tried the CBD gummy bottles from Orange County, and we were pretty impressed! Firstly, you get 16mg of broad spectrum CBD per gummy. This is a nice dosage and pretty good compared to most other brands on the market. We also liked the taste quite a bit - they're mixed fruit and while we couldn't quite put our finger on the flavour of each gummy, overall they were nice. They're also vegan and appear to be made with natural flavouring and colourings only, which is great!
Another thing we were really excited about for this product was how easy it was to access the lab reports - we've included a picture of the QR code on the packet. However, when we scanned the QR code and landed on the lab report page, there was no section for the 200mg packets of the gummy bottles (we double-checked). This was pretty disappointing and confusing - why include the lab reports on the front of the packet if you don't have them for the gummies?

Orange County CBD use Trustpilot, our preferred third-party review platform. They're currently sitting with a pretty good rating there of 4.7 out of 5 from over 100 reviews. This is a good start and they seem to be pleasing their customers. We didn't like to see a customer in the reviews posting about how Orange County CBD offered them a discount for a positive review, that seems wrong. Check out the reviews here - https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/orangecounty-cbd.com
We like to check Reddit when reviewing CBD brands like Orange County CBD because there is a great CBD community on there. Sadly we didn't find much about Orange County CBD on there but we did see a few users posting links to their products as they have been discounted. We'll update this page if we find any more mentions on Reddit of this brand.
Yes - we often mention how certain brands like to include lots of random things in the packages when you order from them, and we've mentioned previously how brands like Healthspan have given us some really unhelpful things. But we didn't mind the Orange County CBD extras. It was literally just a postcard, which seemed a little strange until we flipped it round and saw a 25% discount code had been included. Pretty nice actually!
