Quick Summary

Colorado has experienced considerable growth in companies excited about CBD, and Receptra Naturals was founded in 2016 as part of that explosion of interest. The company extracts all of its CBD from industrial hemp grown on Colorado family farms, making them an appealing choice for customers looking to support U.S. agriculture.

Although Receptra markets their range of full-spectrum CBD oils towards athletes, the blend of base oils with turmeric and CBD may be of interest to a wide range of CBD users. Other products in the Receptra line include skincare, a muscle and joint balm, and CBD oil for pets.

Materials and Sourcing

Part of Receptra’s mission is to support industrial hemp farming by family farmers in Colorado. Although the USDA does not certify hemp as organic, Receptra has a commitment to only working with farmers who use 100% organic growing practices and who do not use commercial pesticides or fertilizers. They also ensure that none of the hemp they use is from genetically modified crops.

To test these promises, the company includes pesticide residue and fungicide residue in its third-party analysis of each oil batch.

Where possible, Receptra uses organic options for non-CBD ingredients. While not listed in text, the ingredient lists for each product are still available in the form of a photograph. This allows customers with allergies or a specialized diet to double-check the details themselves.

All of Receptra’s products are vegan, with no honey or gelatin used in either their oils or skincare range.


CBD companies use third party testing for two reasons: to reassure customers about what’s in their products, and to ensure that their offerings adhere to state and national laws. (Receptra’s products, though primarily not 0% THC, are all under 0.3% THC and are legal in all 50 states as well as in many international countries.)

Receptra uses a variety of third-party laboratories to conduct their testing and provides test results for each product on the appropriate product page.

In addition to overall testing for each product, the company also conducts testing on individual batches of their products.

Customers can see the test results on the Third Party Testing page by entering a code from the product label. This page also provides PDF files of tests for their products on this page, along with information customers can use to understand the test results better. For customers who are new to CBD or to reading test results, this information can provide significant clarity and peace of mind.

Flavor and Appearance

Receptra CBD Oils

Although Receptra offers a wide range of CBD oils, these differ mostly in concentration and are otherwise quite similar in taste and appearance. The oils primarily come in two varieties: a blend of many different oils, flavored with mint and berry, or a blend of MCT and sunflower oil which is available unflavored or flavored with mint and berry.

All of Receptra’s base oils, in both blend types, are neutral or very mildly flavored. However, as the company uses a full-spectrum extraction process, the unflavored varieties will have a mild hemp taste.

Receptra Topicals

Both Receptra’s body butter and their joint and muscle balm are scented with essential oils. In the case of their body butter, these oils are tropical florals and citruses, a combination which even scent-sensitive reviewers say they enjoy.

The medicated balm, while also containing similar floral oils, includes camphor for its pore-opening qualities. Camphor has a strong, medicinal scent which may not appeal to everyone, though its scent will fade reasonably quickly.

Receptra Pet Oil

As Receptra’s pet line consists of CBD extract in an MCT oil base, there are no strong scents other than the expected hemp aroma. The oil itself is thin, clear, and light green.


Receptra has a remarkably wide range of potencies available in their CBD oil range. These run from a fairly standard 17mg/ml to the very strong 67mg/ml. As CBD dosage is very personal and high dosage-products are less common than low or medium-dosage oils, this variety may make Receptra an appealing choice for high-dosage CBD users. (CBD beginners are usually advised to start low and raise their dosage as necessary.)

The company uses a full-spectrum extraction process which preserves some plant matter and THC. (The THC percentage of a product will always be below 0.3% and has no psychoactive qualities.)

CBD researchers are currently undecided whether full-spectrum products are more effective than broad-spectrum products. If you are interested in 0% THC oil or medicated rubs, Receptra does sell a limited range which is guaranteed to have 0% THC.
