Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
cbdMD’s CBD Oil Tincture Drops 750mg (Berry Flavor), smells richly of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries in the bottle, making for a juicy bouquet of diverse fruity notes that blend beautifully. If you like berry or wild berry anything, you’ll probably enjoy this product.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The flavor of the CBD oil is fruity and sweet, reflecting perfectly the mixed berry profile in its aroma. The flavor is pleasant and notable without being cloying or overpowering, and it doesn’t leave a lasting aftertaste or cause any flavored burps in the hours following consumption. We’re really fond of this flavor, as it’s sweet and fruity but not too intense or artificial.
First, we need to give props to the brand: cbdMD nailed it by putting this CBD oil in a childproof bottle. While it’s not possible to overdose on CBD, it is still medicine, and we believe that as such, it should be responsibly packaged. We applaud cbdMD for this packaging decision, and we hope to see more providers follow suit in the near future.
Second, the dropper included in the bottle is marked off in .25 mL increments. We LOVE this from a dosing convenience perspective, as it allows the consumer to fine-tune their CBD consumption in a precise, consistent manner.
Now, to the oil itself: it’s clear and free-flowing, with a subtle warm, ambery tint to it that’s more notable than at lower concentrations. It draws up easily into the dropper for dosing and doesn’t adhere to the mucosa of the mouth when consumed, minimizing the aftertaste and preventing the flavored burps commonly associated with some CBD oils.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
True to most consumable CBD products, we felt the effects of this CBD oilanywhere from 30 to 60 minutes after dosing, depending on our individual compositions and what/how recently we’d eaten that day. At this dose (25 mg per mL dose), we felt relief from moderate symptoms throughout the day — up to 10 hours for some of us, with an average of 7-8 hours.
This product was effective against moderate pain and inflammation and imparted a general improvement in mood. We noticed a reduction in symptoms of anxiety, including racing thoughts and the gastrointestinal unrest often associated with the condition. All in all, we like this CBD oil for a long-lasting “maintenance dose” of CBD to alleviate symptoms throughout the day.
This dosage strength was effective for most of our testers, but a few of us needed to take higher doses for full symptom relief, especially those of us with more severe chronic pain or mood disorders that we manage with CBD. If this is you, don’t worry — CBD dosing is not an exact science, and it can take some time to find what works for you. Don’t be afraid to experiment, and do some research to point you in the right direction.
You could consume this product in larger quantities or more frequently throughout the day to alleviate your symptoms, but you could also purchase a stronger dosage strength, which is more efficient from both a product conservation and cost-saving perspective.
Best used for
We like this product best as a long-acting maintenance dose of CBD to fight background inflammation, aid in athletic recovery, provide immune benefits, and more. At the 750mg dosage strength, it’s best used for moderate symptoms like chronic pain, joint stiffness, inflammation, anxiety, and depression — choose a higher dosage strength for more intensive relief from more severe symptoms.
Best used with (Complimentary Product)
We love this CBD oil as a systemic dose of CBD for all-day, full-body relief, but it takes a considerable amount of time to kick in due to its absorption through the digestive tract. For fast-acting relief, we suggest smoking or vaping a bowl of organic hemp flower, or vaping CBD oil. You could also dab 99.9% pure CBD isolate for intensive, instantaneous relief from even severe symptoms.
If you need localized relief for muscle soreness, joint pain, stiffness, or inflammation, try a roll-on pain freeze or CBD cream to reduce inflammation and pain at the site while your systemic dose works from within, providing total, targeted pain relief.
Each 30 mL bottle (1 fluid ounce) contains 750 mg of organic, US-grown CBD, or 25 mg per 1 mL dose. At $59.99 per bottle, this works out to a per-milligram price of just shy of $0.08, which is pretty great as far as organic, sustainably grown, independently tested oral CBD products go. It’s on the affordable end of the spectrum of comparable products, which we like, and the per-milligram price continues to decrease at higher doses.
Next to competing products of comparable quality and composition, we think this CBD oil stands its ground. It’s flavorful, affordable, organic, non-GMO, US grown and processed, gluten-free, and vegan, making it accessible to a varied customer base. This oil meets our CBD Buyer’s Guide criteria for quality, purity, and potency.
