Cloud 9 Hemp: 60-Second Summary
Some CBD brands try to do it all. Others focus on a certain segment they’re passionate about or do particularly well. Cloud 9 is trying to do both. Their CBD oil product line has a vast array of options in eight different categories, but their expertise and fervor clearly lie in vaping. Vape blends artfully crafted using a proprietary process are the obvious winners of the Cloud 9 lineup. But this brand has far to go to receive our stamp of approval.

Cloud 9 Hemp Brand Review
Cloud 9 Hemp was founded in 2014 in Tennessee by a team looking to provide the best legal alternative to medicinal cannabis illegal in their state. The team has years of blending and mixing knowledges when it comes to vape e-liquids, and that’s pretty much all we know about the people behind Cloud 9 Hemp. We can’t be sure, but this reads like another CBD brand created by vape industry veterans.
Cloud 9 Hemp states that they perform “rigorous” testing on all their products proudly made in the USA, but we can find zero evidence, as they post zero results for purity or contaminants. They won’t be receiving the Safety Badge until they do.
Although the information about the team and processes is lacking, the Cloud 9 Hemp product lineup is expansive, with a focus on the CBD vape segment:
- CBD e-liquids come in 16 flavors and go from 100 mg at $19.99 to 1000 mg at $99.99. In addition to CBD, these e-juice blends contain organic VG, PG, and “food-based flavorings,” all of which are apparently sourced locally and domestically. Cloud 9 uses a proprietary process of ultrasonic emulsification, blending, and steeping to create their delicious concoctions.
- CBD vape cartridges
- CBD vape supplies include starter kits, and vape tanks. Other accessories are available from a third-party vendor.
- CBD oil – Cloud 9 breaks this category down into two subsegments: CBD hemp oil and CBD tinctures. They describe the former as 100% organic, but it contains full spectrum cannabidiol that is not certified organic and MCT oil, also not organic.
The CBD tinctures line contains their hemp oil tinctures, CBD Syrup Spray, and Terpenes+CBD Drops. The first group counts full spectrum CBD, VG, MCT oil, and natural and artificial flavors as ingredients. The CBD Syrup Spray has the same ingredients plus added terpenes and comes in five different flavors. Finally, the Terpenes+CBD Drops have the same ingredients as the CBD Syrup Spray, but the cannabidiol used is in isolate form.
- CBD edibles (look out for artificial flavors and colors in the gummy bears)
- CBD additive/concentrates
- CBD oil drops for pets
- CBD topicals – We approve of half of this line, namely the CBD face mask and CBD healing balm. We cannot say the same for the other two products which contain a laundry list of dicey ingredients we incessantly call out in CBD topicals, including triethanolamine, dimethicone, and EDTA.
But there’s two more ingredients in both the CBD body lotion and CBD cream actually more risky than these, and this is our first time to encounter them in CBD products: diazolidinyl urea and iodopropynyl butylcarbamate (a mouthful, we know). The first releases formaldehyde, a carcinogenic impurity, and the second is documented as toxic by inhalation. Do us a favor, stay away from these two products and any you see with these last two ingredients.
Bottom Line – Cloud 9 Hemp misses the boat on safety and uses a lot of artificial ingredients in their CBD product line. We’d like to see them wave goodbye to the nasty stuff in their topicals and get on board with their testing regime.This Cloud 9 Hemp Review reveals the truth about this CBD oil company. Not all CBD is created equal. Read this first before you buy Cloud 9 Hemp Products.
Cloud 9 Hemp CBD E-Liquid Review
Looking to add some variety to your e-juice routine? Cloud 9 Hemp’s E-Liquid is to be used in an e-cigarette. It’s not for herb vaporizing or oral ingestion. The e-juice can be used in a traditional cartomizer. This might be an alternative in place of or in addition to e-cigarette juice.

- The e-liquid blends also contain vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. The website states, “our e-liquid blends are comprised of 50% VG, PG, CBD, and flavorings.”
- Price range from $14.99 for a 25mg bottle to $199.99 for a 1000mg bottle
Coloration and Viscosity
The color is clear, runs fast, and has a distinct scent to it. Cloud 9 Hemp’s product runs a bit clearer and faster than other brands. This could be because of the other ingredients in the product — like vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol. The only way to consume this is through a traditional cartomizer, not orally, which could explain the difference in viscosity. Propylene glycol is a synthetic organic compound that is a humectant, solvent, and preservative common in e-liquids that causes vape smoke to appear.
What does color mean about a CBD Oil?
Since the color is clear and the product is blended with other ingredients typical of e-liquid, this product does not fall into the traditional category of CBD oil and therefore, color is less relevant.
Flavor and Scent
How does it smell?
There are 10 different flavors of e-liquid with their own unique, distinct smell. These flavors are: Equilibrium, Easy Rider, Mad Hatter, Panama Red, Midnight Express, Yellow Brick Road, Lizard King, Nice Dreams, Ridgemont High, Dark Side of the Moon. These scents are not recognizable as traditional flavors, but generally have a sweet scent to them.
Why should the you care about any of this?
Those looking to make a change away from or in addition to nicotine products may be interested in Cloud 9’s E-Liquid juice. This product is not to be confused with traditional CBD oil. E-liquid juice is a category of it’s own, as the CBD is infused into a chemical blend traditional of e-juice ingredients. Therefore, it should only be used in a device made for e-juice by those looking for a product to add or replace their e-juice routine.
What’s important about this product and how is it different than any other products out there?
Cloud 9 Hemp has received a Better Business Bureau rating as of October 20th, 2016 under the name Platinum Vapor, LLC.
Cloud 9 Hemp offers 20% off your first order. However, there are no indications of potency testing, satisfaction or money back guarantees, and the website does not indicate where the hemp is sourced from. E-juicing is it’s own category separate from CBD oils, so it’s best to compare e-juice products to each other.
