I recently purchased a bottle of CBD oil from CBD Distillery to test out. I’ve been a fan of high CBD products for a while now and I kept hearing buzz about CBD Distillery and how their oils were the best in the market. Well, I had to purchase a bottle and find out for myself of course.
Like most CBD companies these days the website left much to be desired in terms of education. Nowhere do they state how much you should take, or how to measure your dose. In fact, they almost gave you zero reasons to buy CBD in the first place. Where was the knowledge?
I especially wanted to know how many milligrams of CBD I was getting per drop, or per droppers worth. After digging through other customer questions I finally came across a forum thread where someone had broken it down and discovered each drop contained approximately 3mgs of CBD. Okay, but that still doesn’t answer the question about how much CBD you need for a proper dose. Every other supplement has a recommended dosage. Further research into this revealed that there is no standard dose or recommended amount. It’s basically the wild wild west when it comes to CBD oil.
On the back of the bottle however there are instructions to take 3 – 4 drops per dose. Sticking to our 3mg per drop theory, that’s about 9 – 12 mg per serving according to the instructions. Every study I’ve ever read on CBD, they used at least 200mg in the tests. If an effective dose was indeed 200mg I would be blowing through a $35 dollar bottle of this stuff every other day. This is indeed some expensive shit!
I had my doubts but figured the other positive testimonials were good enough to make a purchase. I assume the industry is still young and not enough data has been gathered to know about proper dosages.
The day it came in the mail I cracked it open and gave it a sniff test. Good CBD oil should smell like marijuana, like you just opened up a fat bag of the home grown good stuff. And this oil definitely smelled good.
I took 10 drops under the tongue which is roughly 30mg of CBD. The oil tasted good, like Cannabis.
It must have been 10 minutes when I felt a nice wave of calm wash over my body. The days stress melted away. Yes, this CBD was very calming. The effects lasted for a couple hours. I resampled the goods. Once again, stress seemed to melt away although this time it made me quite drowsy. I chilled on the couch for a bit just absorbing the moment and feeling totally relaxed. I knew this oil would become part of my daily regiment. Well, maybe not daily considering the price!
Overall I think this is great CBD oil and worth the money. Out of all the products on the CBD Distillery website their oils are hands down the best. Stay FAR away from their vape pens, which I will be doing a separate review on soon.
Until next time…
