My experience: on researching the product, I was happy to see that even the ‘inactive ingredients’ were chosen for proven health benefits, which is a mark of truly thoughtful product design. We got the 1 fl oz peppermint-flavored Hemp Drops. These have 13 mg of hemp oil and 3 mg of CBD for a half dropper. This is somewhat surprising. You would expect the CBD drops to have more CBD but 6 mg per dropper is just enough to get a therapeutic dose. I guess that’s why it’s called Hemp Drops specifically. But by cost, this is also not the cheaper way to get your CBD from PlusCBD products. For that, you will have to look at the capsules. These drops are tasty however, so they can also be added to food. It’s a good idea to add this stuff to food because not just the CBD but the fatty acids and other components of hemp oil have ant-inflammatory effects and inflammation is often a reaction to the food we eat. So if we consume our food already containing our anti-inflammatory substances, that will offset the inflammation caused by the food.
This is gonna get pricey if you use therapeutic doses of CBD but at least you’ve got the real deal.
These CBD drops contain 3 mg of CBD per half dropper and 10 mg of hemp oil. It’s peppermint flavored and fairly tasty. However, to get a therapeutic amount of CBD from these drops, you might be dipping into your pockets a bit. There is also a 2 oz. version and an extra-strength version which has more CBD.
CBD Raw Drops
My experience: I got the 1 oz formula, 100 mg of CBD. First off the labeling and packaging is on point. All of the text is visible and easy-to-read. There are a batch number and expiration date on the bottom, making it easy to get information about your batch. When you spray it, you will be surprised that you get more of a squirt than a spray mist which is just as well since this is a sublingual formula. The directions specify to shake well and use two sprays. This is equivalent to 12 mg of hemp oil, and 1 mg of cannabidiol. So probably you won’t get getting the majority of your CBD from this product. Once you get it in the mouth, you might hold it under the tongue for 30 secs before swallowing but this is not specified in the instructions. I’ve tried adding it to my coffee and that works well. It has a nice peppermint taste. The only drawback is that this is not a significant source of CBD from the 1 oz formulation. The 2 oz version has 3 mg of CBD per two sprays, so a little more but getting your CBD this way is still gonna get costly. You would want to go with the oil or capsules for your CBD. This makes a nice addition, particularly to add to food and drinks.
This is a balm to be used topically. It has a great scent of peppermint and may give a slight tingling sensation when used. The peppermint potentiates the effect of the CBD. The only drawback we can see for this product is that it is not to be eaten. We prefer to put on our skin things which are so safe, you can eat it. A general heuristic we use is ‘if it can’t go in you, don’t put it on you’, but we will relax this rule for now. We have used it, and it is delightful to use. I would suggest they make it edible because children and even adults are gonna try to eat this stuff. It smells like food.
Our Rating: A+, excellent. Should you buy this product, yes or no? Yes.
Plus CBD was nice enough to send us samples, so they get a lot of points for that. I didn’t wait till time to write the review to dig in because I was hungry, and they sent gummies. The gummies work for sure, but there was a little concern with how much I can tell it’s working. I can tell almost immediately. It’s not supposed to have any psychoactive effect but I did initially get a bit of a tingling sensation. This stopped happening by day 2, but it may be something to watch out for if you take psychoactive medications whose levels might be increased by concomitant use of CBD. This doesn’t mean it has too much THC as the labs show for sure that it is less than 0.3% THC. Be aware however that CBD can increase or decrease the levels of other drugs you are taking so check with your doctor to be certain that it is safe to take CBD with your medications. We are going to comb through Plus CBD’s website, look for information online, and finally test the product ourselves.
Plus CBD is a very promising company so far as we can see and have a wide variety of environmentally friendly products. They say their products come from agricultural hemp, which is a term we have not seen before. Most CBD products come from industrial hemp which is a low-THC form of cannabis Sativa. They claim it is ‘not unlawful’ to ship these products around the United States. This is a good sign, they choose their wording carefully. They didn’t even say it was ‘legal’, that said it was not unlawful and there’s a difference. It means they are listening to counsel. They will even provide a signed legal opinion for those who are unsure of the legality of using CBD in their jurisdiction. Their products are sold with varying methods of delivery. They have gummies and sprays that work immediately, as well as topical products.
Cost: $ $ 35.66 to $ 76.46
Plus CBD Oil products undergo extensive testing in San Diego, California. Furthermore, the CBD products are also tested by an independent third-party lab. Ultimately, this is vital to finding a high-quality CBD product because independent labs offer an unbiased analysis and insight on purity, quality, and potency.
Plus CBD Oil was created by CV Sciences in 2014, making it one of the first hemp CBD oil brands operating in the United States. This company uses hemp seeds certified by the European Union when growing its hemp plants, and it also follows a strict CO2 extraction method when obtaining its CBD oil. This extraction process does not use harsh chemicals, is cold-based (which allows the cannabinoids and terpenes to be better preserved), and takes place in a facility that is European ISO Certified (that is, it meets or exceeds international regulatory requirements). If you're new to CBD, this information may not seem all that important, but it essentially lets consumers know that Plus CBD products get their start from high-quality hemp seeds and plants.
Most recently, I've been using various Plus CBD products to support recovery and rest. I'll get into my review of these products later on, but first, let me explain a bit more about the brand itself.
Plus CBD Gummies
Plus CBD Oil and its parent company, CV Sciences, are committed to ensuring only the best products are brought to market and believe in thorough testing to ensure accuracy and purity. Ultimately, I consider Plus CBD to be a standout operating within the CBD industry, and its dedication to product offerings, manufacturing processes, and customers is commendable.
Plus CBD offers many pros to consumers seeking a hemp extract product, including:
Also noteworthy, Plus CBD Oil offers a variety of formulations with the intent to help customers find the dosage that is right for them, regardless of their experience with CBD. I appreciate the company's belief in transparency and its commitment to helping people understand all of the benefits, as well as any side effects, associated with CBD products.
Offered in 10-count and 30-count jars, these CBD gummies are perfect for beginners who want to try out an edible sample, or for long-term users who want a month-long supply. After trying these gummies, I can say one downside is the product’s consistency, which is a little tougher to chew through. With that said, these edibles offer an easy and efficient way to ensure your dosage is correct via a pre-measured 5 milligram serving of CBD. Infused with Plus CBD’s potent Gold Formula extract, these gummies are made from all organic ingredients, and they come in two delicious flavors: cherry mango and citrus punch.
You can purchase a 1 oz or 2 oz bottle containing 250 mg or 750 mg, respectively. Plus CBD Oil’s Gold Formula is their standard oil that is made with extra virgin olive oil, peppermint oil, monk fruit, silica, monolaurin, quillaja saponaria, ascorbyl palmitate, and alpha tocopherol. This product is non-gmo, gluten free, glycerin free. In their 250 mg bottle, each serving which is ½ dropper or 15 drops worth contains 3 mg of CBD and 13 mg of hemp oil. We tried the peppermint flavor, it’s very sweet and very peppermint-y at the same time. You can’t taste the standard CBD oil taste because the sweet peppermint is so strong. If you’re sensitive to taste, this may be a good option for you.
Plus CBD Oil is making a name for itself not only for their spectrum of CBD products but also for their purity and tracking. They believe in their products so much they have created a Seed to Shelf™ guarantee which means that every bottle is guaranteed to be pure and consistent and is fully traceable throughout the supply chain. How’s that for a guarantee?
Innovation in Purity and Tracking
Gummies – Great Flavor & Organic Ingredients
Lab Testing – Best in Class
When evaluating any CBD product, it’s important to understand how and where the hemp was grown. Plus CBD Oil does not specify where their source hemp was grown, but they do mention that it’s Non-GMO and the final products are gluten free. Plus CBD Oil uses a chemical-free CO2 extraction process that is cold-based, meaning there’s a high chance the terpenes and cannabinoids will be preserved in the extraction process.
