Essential CBD is one of those companies that sound “too good to be true”. On their website, it says that the company was created to lead the CBD industry in pricing and quality by providing organic CBD products that taste great at affordable prices. Essential CBD also says that it upholds higher quality control standards than its competitors and even puts all of its products through third-party testing. These are factors that drive up the cost of CBD products significantly and on top of that, they also offer free air shipping within the US! Did I also mention that they have a 60-day money-back guarantee?
Does Essential CBD deliver on these promises without a catch? Let’s find out.
Essential CBD has a good selection of CBD products from tinctures, capsules, topicals, and pet products, but its flagship line is its flavored CBD oil tinctures. The company said that it has put much effort into creating CBD tinctures that actually taste good. However, it doesn’t say on their website if the CBD in the tinctures is full-spectrum or broad-spectrum. It’s likely that they use a highly concentrated CBD extract which has had its terpenes enhanced.
Organic usually means more expensive and Essential CBD says it uses only organic ingredients like certified MCT oil and virgin expeller pressed hemp seed oil in all of their products. They do not say, however, how their CBD has been extracted.
Essential CBD’s tinctures come in 7 different flavors and 2 strength levels, 500mg and 1000mg:
- Strawberry Lemonade
- Hemp oil
Capsules and isolates
If you really dislike taking tinctures, Essential CBD also has capsules and isolates. Their broad-spectrum CBD capsules contain a proprietary blend of α-Pinene, β-Caryophyllene, β-Myrcene, d-Limonene terpenes while the CBD + melatonin capsules have beta caryophyllene and beta myrcene. Both come in 25 mg capsules in bottles of 30. The CBD isolate, which is 99.9% pure CBD in crystal form, comes in 1000 mg jars.
You can also get these capsules as a bundle with a CBD tincture bottle at a lower price.
CBD for pets
Of course, Essential CBD also has a small line of pet tinctures that have been specially formulated for dogs, cats, and large animals like horses. According to their FAQ, pet owners should only use CBD products that have been specially formulated for pets since animals are more sensitive to CBD and may have an adverse reaction to CBD for humans which are typically more concentrated. The company also says that their CBD for Dogs contains organic high linoleic acid safflower oil for increased CBD bioavailability while their CBD for Cats is also formulated with catnip with a special ratio of organic safflower oil and virgin expeller pressed hemp seed oil. In addition to the organic safflower and hemp seed oils, the Fauna Pet CBD also contains Vitamin E and is specially formulated for larger animals like horses and pigs.
Lastly, Essential CBD also has a token topical CBD product which comes as a cooling roll-on solution.
Based on their 1000 mg Unflavored CBD Oil Tincture bottle, Essential CBD’s oils do seem to be cheaper than most at $0.049 per mg. In comparison, the cheapest CBD so far is around $0.023 while the most expensive is at $0.120, excluding products from MLM companies. Considering that they use all organic ingredients, offer free fast shipping and a 60-day money-back guarantee, we would say that Essential CBD is definitely worth checking out.
