Final Thoughts

There you have it – 9 companies that give back and those who benefit. We wanted to show you that good reputable CBD companies aren’t all about getting your money (of course, everyone wants to make a profit – why else would you be in business?). But as you can see, all of these companies give back in some capacity and are happy to do so. They all feel that every individual deserves the best quality of life they can possibly have.

If you are a CBD company who thinks you should be on this list, let us know.

What are your thoughts on these companies? Do they do enough? Could they do more? We’d love to hear your comments.

  1. Great for these companies for making the commitment to give back to others as part of their core business model. I appreciate all the work you did to compile this information and help CBD customers make more informed decisions when choosing a CBD manufacturer. There are a lot of places to choose from and something that should interest about anyone!

    • Thank you, Aly. I might have missed a company or two – but that was not intentional. It is a commitment on their part and I agree that it is great they make this part of their core business model.

  2. I have to say, giving back to the society, especially to those in need is such a noble cause to take up and I think these CBD companies should be adequately commended for what they’ve done. What makes this even more sensational is the fact that they made provision for veterans. Great post.

    • Hi Rhain. Giving back is really what it is all about. It is so good to see so many companies giving back to our Veterans and First Responders. They are so deserving of all the help they can get.. Thanks for your comments.

  3. Great read!! CBD products are becoming more popular in our time than ever before. I have seen how CBD products can replace pharmaceutical supplements with my own eyes, with less to none side effects, compared to pharmaceuticals. Personally I like to support any company that gives something back to the community, and supply a high quality, trustworthy product. With the current economical state, I take my hat off to any company that is still willing to give something back and not pocket all the profits. I like what Receptra Naturals give back, they would be my first choice to support.

    • Thanks, Martin for stopping by! I am with you. I like to support companies that give back as well and, also like you, I too have seen the results of using CBD with little to no side effects. Receptra Naturals is proving to be a great company.

  4. One good thing that always excite me about Cannabidiol(CBD) is that it is a double edge sword. How do I mean?
    You sell a product that solves a problem(it is very instrumental to many health condition like inflammation, cancerous cells) and you use the income to solve another problem.
    For me many of this companies have done well, majority of them encourage veterans and military  . this is a perfect way to give back to the community

    • I couldn’t agree with you more! CBD is making a lot of money for a lot of folks so it is always good to see a company go above and beyond and help others who need it.

    • Thank you, Benny. With so many articles on CBD, I thought it was a nice idea to thank the companies for the stuff we don’t often see behind the scenes, like helping others.
