What We Don’t Like About the Company
Like a coin with two sides, FOCL has its unlikable sides. Here are some things we did not appreciate about the brand.
- Contact details are limited to a phone number, an email address, and physical location address, but no instant messaging feature for reaching the customer care desk in real-time
- Although FOCL has a fairly large concentration range, it features only a few product lines, making it necessary for it to expand its product lines
- The $75 threshold for free shipping is high, and not every user will attain it
Our review for FOCL was fairly good. The brand offers extracts in the three possible formulations; isolate, broad-, and full-spectrum CBD. It provides capsules, gummies, tinctures, and topicals for these formulations. It conducts thorough third-party tests and posts the results online. It also has wonderful customer service where the agents respond fast. Nevertheless, the brand can do better by expanding its product lines and lowering the free shipping threshold.
