If you’re looking to buy CBD and you happen to chance upon Medterra’s website, it’s practically impossible to walk away without buying anything. The company has a big, in-your-face website that lets you know that they have the CBD health product that you want and maybe even something that you didn’t know you needed. The homepage can be a bit too much, but don’t let that put you off from checking out the company and its products. If you’re looking for a CBD products that can give you a little bit more extra, you may find it at Medterra.
The company & third-party testing
Medterra is a big CBD company based in Irvine, CA. They have quite a number of CBD products on their website that they ship locally and internationally for both retail and wholesale sales. You’ll also be able to find their products in stores across the country. The company has its own advisory board of medical specialists and a number of product ambassadors. Medterra also provides military and disability discounts, sponsors events, and even gives free CBD to frontliners in the country. This definitely ain’t your mom and pop CBD shop.
According to their website, Medterra sources its CBD from organic hemp grown in Kentucky, a farming region where crops can grow longer in rich, tilled soil. The company also promises to uphold its consistency for every batch since they grow their hemp under the strict guidelines of the Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Hemp Pilot Program. In addition to this, they also comply with the U.S. Hemp Authority Certification program which requires CBD companies to adhere to high standards, best practices and self regulation.
I must say, Medterra’s third-party product testing sets the bar really high. Every product is tested for all the necessary things: cannabinoid content, heavy metals, solvents, microorganisms, pesticides, and other harmful compounds. Everything consumers need to know to make an informed decision about their products is easily available under the Certificates of Analysis page. I can see they are really transparent about the information about their products, which is how it should be for all CBD companies.
There’s definitely a lot to talk about when it comes to Medterra’s products. Let’s take a look at their tinctures first.
CBD oil & tinctures
It’s difficult to set plain CBD apart and Medterra knows that. So in addition to their broad-spectrum and isolate CBD tinctures, Medterra also has a CBG+CBD tincture which you won’t normally see from most CBD companies. CBG is actually considered to be the “mother of all cannabinoids” and is thought to address conditions that CBD may not be effective on. Additionally, combining CBG with CBD may result to effects greater than each cannabinoid working on its own.
A tincture that seems particularly interesting is the CBD immune boost which includes lderberry, Echinacea, Vitamin C, Ginger Root, Ashwagandha, Reishi Mushroom, and Lemon Balm. These are all ingredients that boost the immune system though I’m not sure if all of these ingredients come in the doses where they can make a significant effect.
Of course, they also have their own version of CBD gummies. But the twist here is that each variant contains various natural supplement ingredients. Medterra has 3 gummy variants:
- Keep Calm – with L-Theanine
- Sleep Tight – with Melatonin, Chamomile, 5HTP, Passion Flower & Lemon Balm
- Stay Alert – with Guarana, Green Tea & Gingko
CBD has a biphasic effect, which means it can have different effects at low and high doses. This is why it actually makes sense to combine the right dose of CBD with supplements that can calm, sedate, or heighten alertness.
Capsules are always easier to take than tinctures, which is why Medterra also has its CBD in gel capsule form. Very basic, I know, which is why they also have the Good Morning capsules (with caffeine, B6, B12, L-Tyrosine, L-Theanine) and CBD+Melatonin caps.
Topicals and pet products
A CBD company as big as Medterra won’t be caught without topicals and pet products. As far as topicals go, they have the standard stuff like pain creams, cooling creams, and roll-ons. What caught my eye though is their CBD+Manuka Cream. Manuka is a kind of honey that has powerful healing properties. In fact, it is used to treat the skin of burn victims. Just imagine the effect that this cream will have on your skin.
They only have two pet product categories: tinctures and chews. What is the difference between CBD for humans and that for dogs, you ask? While Medterra has a regular, unflavored pet CBD tincture, it also comes in Beef and Chicken flavors. They also have their own pet chews that come in peanut butter and bacon flavors. Did I also mention that you have a BOGO (Buy one, Get one) promo on all their pet products?
In addition to all of the things I’ve just mentioned, Medterra also has a pet CBD dosage calculator on their site, a very helpful FAQ section, and just about any information you need, all on their website.
Perhaps one of the biggest considerations that buyers need to know is that Medterra’s CBD’s is quite cheap. Based on their 3000mg tincture bottle, their broad-spectrum CBD is just around $0.044 per mg. In comparison, some of the most expensive CBD brands are priced at around $0.21. This makes Medterra’s products a solid choice if you’re shopping for a CBD brand that you want to stick with.
