Summary: Our work has taught us to recognize CBD companies that are devoted to quality and customer satisfaction. One such brand is Penguin CBD, an Oregon-based CBD brand making broad-spectrum and CBD isolate products.
This company uses organic industrial hemp and extracts useful ingredients via CO2 extraction. Penguin CBD has been on the market for a short time, and it has made a relatively good product catalog.
Catering to people with different needs, they offer CBD oils, CBD capsules, CBD edibles, and CBD topical products. Still, all of these have somewhat low amounts of CBD, which is how the company can keep the prices low.
In my opinion, they should start bringing CBD products with a higher amount of CBD so they can appeal to people with more experience in using CBD.

The Penguin CBD Brand
With an unexpected name for a CBD brand, Penguin CBD works on fulfilling its company mission inspired by these amazing animals. This company is composed of people from different backgrounds that have experience with hemp and CBD products.
Penguin CBD is located in Oregon. They source their hemp locally, from farms that have organic, sustainable practices. Penguin CBD uses CO2 extraction to draw out the useful ingredients from the hemp plant.
After, they filter the extract, removing all the THC, and offering broad-spectrum CBD hemp extract products. The lab reports, done in independent lab are published on a separate page on the official website.
Penguin CBD has a charitable program by providing a 25% discount to all active and retired military personnel. All they need to do is to register with proof of service and they’ll be all set.
All customers at Penguin CBD are eligible for regular discounts and sales, as well as promo codes, send to subscribers. Plus, Penguin CBD offers free shipping on all US orders and a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Penguin CBD has a good product catalog with products designed to be accessible, affordable, yet with proper quality. Here is an overview of all the Penguin CBD products.
Penguin CBD Oils
Penguin CBD makes broad-spectrum CBD oil. They use industrial hemp grown on Oregon farms that have been grown under sustainable farming methods and only add MCT carrier oil, natural terpenes, and natural (and artificial) flavors. It has zero THC and as such, this CBD oil is adequate for people that avoid THC at any rate. Penguin CBD tests its CBD tincture and the most recent lab tests are posted on the website.
To accommodate its customers better, Penguin CBD makes small batches of its oil, so each product they send out gets as fresh as possible to the clients. The Penguin CBD tinctures come in three strengths of 250 mg, 600 mg, and 1000 mg of CBD. Since the raw flavor can be a little unpleasant for some, Penguin offers five different flavors like natural, citrus, mint, strawberry, and cookies & cream flavors.
Penguin CBD Edibles
Penguin CBD makes CBD-infused edibles in the shape of gummy worms. These are made with 10 mg of CBD isolate per gummy and are packed in a jar with 30 gummies.
To add to the flavor, each gummy is coated with a blend of sweet and sour sugar, tickling the taste buds while delivering a nice CBD infusion. The gummies by Penguin CBD are vegetarian (they have gelatin) and contain natural and artificial colors and flavors.
The Penguin CBD capsules are made with 10 mg of broad-spectrum CBD hemp extract blended with MCT coconut carrier oil. This blend is encased in a gelatin-glycerin casing that creates the gel capsule.
Penguin packs them in a bottle with 30 capsules and the recommended dose is one to two capsules a day. The Penguin CBD capsules are THC-free, GMO-free, and organic, for improved customer experience.
Penguin CBD makes a CBD-infused topical cream that has a good formulation and is intended to bring relief to soreness and aches. It is made with 250 mg of broad-spectrum CBD hemp extract and is packed with other natural healing ingredients. It comes in convenient 4-ounce jars.
This topical cream contains natural plant extracts like safflower oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, corn mint oil, aloe vera juice, tea tree extract, rosehip oil, lavender oil for scent, and peppermint oil for a pleasant cooling sensation. The Penguin CBD cream has a non-greasy, fast-absorbing formulation that brings relief right where it is needed the most.

The founders of the Penguin CBD brand recognize the difference in using quality raw materials. It is why they source industrial hemp from Oregon farms that use sustainable and organic farming practices. Using CO2 extraction, Penguin CBD makes broad-spectrum CBD hemp extract that is free from THC and are tested in an independent lab.
Also, Penguin offers free shipping along with a 25% military discount. The Penguin CBD products include representatives in all the major CBD product types. However, most of these (excluding the CBD tinctures) come with low CBD concentrations, which explain the lower prices. Still, we’d like to see the same quality CBD products, but with higher CBD content.
