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.
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.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
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.
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.
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.
CBD is a non-toxic substance which means that no fatal doses have ever been reported. A 2011 study also states that levels of 1,500 mg of CBD are tolerated well in humans. You can experiment safely with CBD without the fear of overdosing.
Let’s break down how CBD works.
You want to first understand why you’re taking CBD products. Are you experiencing pain in your foot? Do you have trouble sleeping? Are both of these problems? When you understand your why, you can approach your treatment from a more informed place. Knowing your why also gives you a way to measure if the dosage is working for you. Does your foot feel better? Are you sleeping more deeply? With a wellness product like CBD, you will be learning what dose is best for you through experience, so understanding how to measure progress is important.
Overdosing & Drug Interactions
CBD has proved to be hugely beneficial for different types of people with different conditions. When seeking the best dose for you, make sure you consider your size, lifestyle, and current medications.
It’s also important to understand that not all medical professionals agree on CBD dosaging, for example Dr. Jordan Tishler says, “CBD requires very high doses, typically 800-1200mg per day (10-20mg/kg). While this is easy to understand, it translates to $50-100 per day, which is more expensive than most can afford. Studies show over and over that below these doses CBD is not effective and that people claiming benefits at lower doses are simply getting placebo.”
CBD oil is still new to the scientific community, so the data about dosing is nascent. Many CBD companies will dose their products at 10 mg per dose. This may look like one gummy or one full tincture dropper. The basic wisdom is to start with a small dose, 2-10mg of CBD, and increase from there. It’s also a good idea to keep a journal and write down what you notice with each dose. How long you wait before deciding to increase is up to you.
