The Bottom Line

SabaiDee is a Los Angeles based CBD company that was founded on the principles of providing high quality products to consumers in a completely transparent manner. Utilizing CO2 extraction and liquid chromatography to extract the CBD, SabaiDee offers full spectrum CBD products with clear use instructions, COAs for quality assurance, and a great customer support team to answer questions. SabaiDee offers a select product line with CBD products priced from $0.10/mg to $0.39/mg. SabaiDee’s sticker price varies by comparison to similar products offered by competitors. The main product offering, Good Vibes oral tincture, is reasonably priced compared to other companies ($0.13/mg for a 1,000 mg bottle versus $0.10-$0.15). Other products were priced at either the high end of the spectrum (topical balm priced at $0.24/mg versus $0.13/mg from competitors) or the very low end of the spectrum (Chill Chew dog treats priced at $0.39/mg vs. $0.60-$0.70/mg from competitors). It appears SabaiDee focuses on the quality of their products versus having a large quantity of products to select from. While the products are high quality, there is a lack of variety in products and strengths available.

Pros:

  • Free shipping on all orders
  • Bulk order discounts
  • Knowledgeable, friendly customer service
  • COAs available for all human products

Cons:

  • Limited product selection; Oral products limited to only two flavors (Cool Mint and Unflavored)
  • COAs demonstrated variability from stated strength for certain products

About the Company

SabaiDee is a Los Angeles based company that has been providing CBD products to consumers since November of 2017.

SabaiDee was given an overall score of 8.3/10 on transparency, accuracy, and reputation. Transparency is one of the strongest assets to SabaiDee (sub rating: 9/10). Alon Shabo, the founder of SabaiDee, aims to provide consumers with fully transparent information to strengthen claims regarding the quality and purity of CBD products. The website supplies adequate information on company history, means of communication, and contact information. When looking at the product information on labels and on the website, the company can provide information on ingredients used in products, the strength of CBD, the amount of CBD per serving, consumption method, and use instructions. The company provides easily locatable third party lab results and certificates of analysis (COA) for nearly every product, with the exception of the Chill Chew Dog Treats. SabaiDee offers helpful information on the FAQ page that is specific to the company, products, and consumer experience.

SabaiDee received a lower rating for accuracy (sub rating: 6/10). Dosing instructions, ingredients, and product labeling was consistent across the SabaiDee website and product labels. The COAs provided were verified to be legitimate and verified each product was free of pesticides. However, there was no data on heavy metals or microbial species. Furthermore, only half of the products reviewed had CBD concentrations were within 10% of the marketed CBD content; The remaining half had CBD concentrations above or below the 10% threshold that most consider acceptable variance.

Alon Shabo’s commitment to utilizing high quality CBD and maintaining full transparency on products has created a strong, loyal customer base that readily recommends the products to new potential customers. Since incorporating in late 2017, SabaiDee continues to gain praise, grow its footprint in the CBD marketplace, and maintain a solid reputation (sub rating: 10/10). Collectively, SabaiDee received a 8.3/10 for their transparency, accuracy, and reputation.

Manufacturing Process

Information on the manufacturing process is readily accessible on SabaiDee’s website. The hemp used in all SabaiDee products is grown in Colorado Springs, Colorado. All hemp used to make SabaiDee products is certified as organic. We were unable to confirm if the company or the grow sites adhere to GMP or USDA standards. All Sabaidee products utilize CO2 for extraction. CO2 can adjust its natural solvent strength with pressure changes, allowing for the extraction of various cannabinoids (CBD, CBG, etc.) and terpenes from the hemp plant. Additionally, compared to other substances that may be used for extraction, CO2 has a lower thermodynamic threshold to achieve its supercritical state. Because of this, the risk of including undesirable components not intended for extraction is reduced. After CO2 extraction, SabaiDee then utilizes liquid chromatography to separate the THC from the remaining components of hemp oil. Upon heating the product, THC attaches to a binding agent and is removed and disposed of. This process results in a THC free broad spectrum oil.

The company uses the third parties ProVerde Laboratories and Innovatical Laboratories (iLab) to test products. Both laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited, meaning the lab can produce accurate and precise data results. ISO 17025 is considered the gold standard in testing laboratories and any products with legitimate results from an ISO 17025 company are reputable. When shopping for CBD products, it is important for companies to provide a certificate of analysis (COA) to consumers. The COAs for current batches of CBD products are easily accessible on the transparency page of SabaiDee’s website (getsabaidee.com/pages/transparency). I was able to find the exact COA for the batch of every product reviewed with the exception of the Chill Chew Pet Treats. Additionally, I was able to confirm the authenticity of the COA by scanning the QR code.

Each product was free of pesticides, however only some of the products had data available regarding the presence of heavy metals or microbial species. Of the products that had heavy metal and pesticide analyses performed, no heavy metals or pesticides were detected. When reviewing the products to compare the potency advertised versus actual CBD content, the amount of CBD in each product varied. For example, the 250 mg CBD oral tincture was found to have significantly more CBD than advertised (320.4 mg CBD); Whereas the 1000 mg CBD oral tincture was found to have significantly less CBD (898.5 mg CBD). It should be noted the concentrations observed for 50% of the products reviewed were either higher or lower than the 10% threshold that most consider an acceptable variance.

Range of Products

SabaiDee’s range of products is limited to oral tinctures, CBD cream (marketed as Relief Rub), and pet products. Furthermore, the oral tinctures are limited to a cool mint flavor and a non-flavored option. All products are created from full spectrum CBD that is manufactured via CO2 extraction.

All products are available for purchase in 2-packs, 3-packs, or 6-packs that offer discounts roughly 15-30% off standard retail pricing.

Buying Experience

Selecting products and adding products to the shopping cart is easy and hassle-free. The website does not require you to create a user account to purchase. It is uncertain which payment methods are accepted. On the payment portion of the order, SabaiDee explains only Visa and MasterCard are accepted. However, the physical portion where payment information is inputted suggests Visa, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and other payment methods are accepted. Free shipping is available on all orders. On the main site, SabaiDee claims shipping takes 5-7 business days. However, upon completing the purchase, text displayed on the free shipping webpage the product will be delivered in 3-5 business days. Consumers can also opt for rush shipping for $34.95 and receive the product in 1-3 business days. Upon completion of the order, SabaiDee provides a USPS tracking code. The package arrived within the guaranteed time frame in a plain brown box. Every item was tightly bubble wrapped for quality assurance.

SabaiDee’s Customer Service department can be reached via email (hello@getsabaidee.com), via a ‘contact me’ form (https://www.getsabaidee.com/pages/contact-us), or by phone (310-526-3381). The website notes phone support hours are from 10 AM to 5 PM CST. I contacted customer service via the contact me form to learn more about the manufacturing process. Specifically, I was wanting to learn more about how chromatography plays a role in the creation of the product. I received a detailed response within the same business day and SabaiDee ended the response asking if there was anything else I needed and provided further contact information.

My experience with SabaiDee’s product line can be found below.

SabaiDee recommends placing one dropperful under the tongue, holding the tincture under the tongue for 60 seconds, and then swallowing. Additionally, SabaiDee suggests the products should be used one to three times per day on an as needed basis. When pulling the product up, the product smoothly filled the dropper all the way to the top. The product is transparent and has a smooth, uniform viscosity. When testing the products, each had a strong mint flavor and little to no aftertaste.

Each package contains 25 treats, resulting in a total of 50 mg of CBD per package. The treats are available for $38.95 (or $0.39 per mg of CBD).
