Even the fact that it uses grapeseed oil as a delivery vehicle for CBD is fascinating, mainly because it’s quite uncommon. “We selected grape seed oil as our carrier knowing how many of our users apply our products topically,” Rosenheck says. “Grape seed oil is high in antioxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and contains a significant amount of Vitamin E—which helps promote skin health in conjunction with the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD. We crafted our Lord Jones Royal Oil to appeal to the CBD purist who is looking for the ultimate all-purpose supplement, free of colorings and additives.”
On the Dose: Lord Jones’ broad spectrum Royal Oil contains 1,000mg of CBD—with each dropper . [+] delivering 40mg.
The incredible versatility of the oil as a topical is also quite impressive: Rosenheck notes that many customers apply it to the stomach to ease menstrual cramps. Some use it as a beauty booster of sorts, incorporating a few drops to facial creams and serums to get the anti-inflammatory benefits of CBD. Others who experience pain and inflammation apply it to smaller target areas.
“Our Lord Jones community is incredibly vocal about the ways in which they use our products to address everything from sleep issues to aches, pains, and anxiety. The Royal Oil came out of some of our customers looking for a higher dose product,” says Lord Jones cofounder and CEO Robert Rosenheck. “While we thought most of our users were taking our existing tinctures sublingually, we learned that some were applying it topically to address joint pain or skin conditions. Some users were infusing their beverages with our existing products—but wanted to find an unflavored option. Lord Jones Royal Oil provides our users with our most potent multi-purpose broad spectrum phytocannabinoid-rich product to date that can be used as a tincture, a topical, or a beverage booster.”
When I first started taking CBD to manage my lower back pain, I didn’t know much about the efficacy of tinctures and balms. This was long before I started microdosing THC. So to begin, I experimented with tasty CBD edibles. My favorite in those days—and among my top choices today—was one 20mg Lord Jones old-fashioned gumdrop before bedtime. On some days, I’d mix things up and indulge—with the luxury cannabis brand’s dark chocolate chews. Even now, I’m quite enjoying the just-released limited-edition summer flavors: red raspberry and white peach.
A bottle of the stuff contains 1,000mg of CBD—with each dropper delivering 40mg of liquid. But that’s not the best part. What makes it so great is the purity of the product, which only contains two ingredients—broad spectrum CBD oil suspended in grapeseed oil. And get this: It can be used in so many different ways.
Lord Jones products are lab-tested for purity and consistency.
Royal Oil revitalizes the appearance of stressed skin and smooths its surface. It’s the height of luxury.

For nighttime pampering:
Apply Royal Oil to your face with soothing, gentle pats before bed to allow skin to absorb and replenish all night long.
The other key difference: While the tincture contains five ingredients (CBD, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, stevia, and either peppermint or lemon oil for flavor), the Royal Oil contains just two: CBD and grapeseed oil. It’s truly a CBD product for the CBD enthusiast.
Marketed for “CBD purists,” Royal Oil is the company’s most concentrated CBD offering to date. (It’s also the highest-concentrated CBD product available at Sephora.) Each bottle contains 1,000 milligrams of CBD, which means one full dropper contains 40 milligrams. This makes it about four times more potent than Lord Jones’ CBD tincture.
The royal experience
If you’re taking the oil orally, Lord Jones recommends holding it under your tongue for a minute before swallowing. If you have sensitive taste buds, this might be an issue — Royal Oil does not taste particularly good. Because it’s only made of grapeseed oil and “broad spectrum CBD,” you’ll feel like you’re drinking cooking oil. (There is a mild cannabis scent, but I didn’t notice it after a while.) But if you’re looking for something unflavored? Royal Oil is your girl.
I’ve been using Lord Jones’ new multi-purpose CBD product, Royal Oil, for the past two weeks. Do I like it? Yes. Do I recommend it? God, I don’t know.
If you can’t handle the oil’s taste, using it as a “booster” for drinks and snacks is a good workaround. Perhaps you would enjoy drizzling some CBD oil onto your guacamole? I noticed no difference between CBD guacamole and regular guacamole, but maybe you will.
