Blue Moon Hemp The Original CBDMD - Premium Tincture

This product is no longer stocked by Blue Moon Hemp.

When it comes to CBD products, tinctures are one of the more popular options available. Tinctures are easy to consume, deliver consistent results, and effects last several hours.

With an abundance of CBD companies on the market, choosing who to buy from can prove to be a time-consuming process. There are several factors beyond just price to take into consideration, including extract type, bottle potency, and ingredients used.

In this review, we’ll be going over what Blue Moon Hemp’s The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture has to offer, saving you valuable time by breaking down whether it’s worthy of its premium title or not.

Price/Value 4/5

This product is very small — containing just 5 mL of oil per bottle. With most companies, if you only order a small amount of oil or a low potency product, the price is going to be higher. This is true with Blue Moon Hemp as well. Each bottle is just $15, but the cost per mg of CBD (a better metric of price), is around $0.15. Compared to standard CBD oils in 30 mL bottles of the same potency, this is about 25% higher than average. 

Nevertheless, if you’re looking to try CBD for the first time and don’t want to break the bank, this is an excellent product to get you started as the cost is just $15 for the whole thing. If you order two or three bottles at a time you can save even more — bringing the cost down to the industry average of $0.10 per mg CBD. 

CBD Potency 3/5

These tinctures contain about 100 mg of pure CBD isolate in a 5 mL bottle — which places the potency at 20 mg per mL of oil. We consider this about mid to low potency — perfect for people just getting started. 

For more experienced users, we recommend getting something a little stronger. 5 mL of oil in this potency will barely last the weekend. 

Hemp Source  3/5

Blue Moon Hemp uses organic hemp, grown with eco-friendly farming practices, sourced from Kentucky farmers. However, without organic certifications or complete third-party testing provided, we can’t present the company with a higher score until we see proof of the companies claims. 

Purpose/Uses 3/5

These tinctures are excellent as a starting point for new CBD users — however, this isn’t how the company markets this oil. It seems the company is suggesting these tinctures as a premium CBD oil for connoisseurs. This is not the case and we don’t consider this product premium in any way. We prefer the companies standard TruBlu Tinctures much more than this patented CBD MD tincture. 

With no additional herbal or nutritional ingredients to help direct the effects of CBD for any one purpose over another, we can’t justify a higher score in this category. 

Product Variations 3/5

This product comes in just one size (5 mL bottles) and one potency (20 mg/mL). The only option you have is to buy either one, two, or three bottles at a time. There are no additional flavors, sizes, or strengths for this product. 

Blue Moon Hemp does offer other tincture options to choose from. The TruBlu Tinctures come in a few different sizes, potencies, and flavors. We would recommend this product over the CBD MD for most people instead of this product. 

Formula/Ingredients 2/5

When it comes to additional ingredients, Blue Moon Hemp doesn’t offer anything extraordinary to set these tinctures apart from what’s offered by competitors. The ingredients used are basic — consisting of hemp seed oil, CBD isolate, and natural flavors. 

Blue Moon Hemp The Original CBDMD - Premium Tincture Review

Overview: The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture

The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture is marketed as a high-quality, organic, and THC-free product.

This is one of the few Blue Moon Hemp products to include an ingredients list. It’s made with 3 simple ingredients:

  1. Pure hemp seed oil
  2. Cannabidiol extract 
  3. Natural flavors

”Premium” suggests high-quality. However, a major concern we have with Blue Moon Hemp, in general, is a lack of third-party testing beyond the cannabinoid profile to support these claims. 

To us, high-quality comes with complete transparency — advertised claims of a product requires evidence to back with third-party lab results. We can’t just take a company’s word for it.

Pure hemp seed oil may confuse as well, it’s a common carrier oil with no actual CBD content in it. Hemp seed oil is harvested from the seeds of the hemp plant. It’s high in other beneficial ingredients such as essential fatty acids, but it won’t contribute to the extract’s cannabinoid or terpene profile. 

Going off of the product description of 5 mL with 100 mg of CBD, these premium tinctures should deliver a medium potency of 20 mg/mL.

For comparison’s sake, Blue Moon Hemp’s TruBlu CBD Tinctures’ potency ranges from 4 – 100 mg/mL — covering a much broader range of potencies. 

At first glance, there’s nothing premium about this product — it looks like any other CBD tincture available on the market. The carrier oils are standard in the industry, the hemp extract is nothing particularly special, and the potency is even slightly lower than average. 

To top it all off, the company is using “natural flavors” to provide the taste. This is a tricky word used to describe synthetic flavorings that mimic naturally occurring flavors. Most premium CBD tinctures will use real sources of flavor for oils like this — such as essential oils or fruit extracts. 

Pros & Cons

Pros Cons

  • THC-Free
  • Lower cost allows users a chance to try CBD without breaking the bank

  • Incomplete third-party lab testing
  • Only one potency available
  • Small bottle size and high price

Key Features & Benefits

1. Contains No THC

The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture is made using a CBD isolate containing no THC, which is backed by third-party lab results to prove it. This is most beneficial for those with THC sensitivities and others who can’t consume THC for various reasons.

2. Small Bottle Size

Each bottle is only 5 mL in volume. This compares to the standard 30 mL for most CBD oils.

The small bottle size means the price is lower and makes it easy for people who have never tried CBD to get some for themselves without breaking the bank on a standard bottle of CBD. 

With that said, this product is still more expensive per milligram of CBD than larger bottles — so if you’re using CBD for the long-term, it’s more cost-effective to go with a larger bottle size instead. 

About the Company: Blue Moon Hemp

Blue Moon Hemp’s mission is to “change the landscape of modern self-care by destigmatizing hemp and bringing CBD products into the mainstream through increased accessibility and affordability.”

The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture is a step towards that goal, as Blue Moon Hemp offers competitive and bulk discount pricing, something the company only does for this product. However, the gesture doesn’t mean much when the product itself is no good, which we’ll be breaking down in detail below.

A majority of Blue Moon Hemp products are made with a broad-spectrum extract, but according to the ingredients list, these specific tinctures are made with a CBD isolate.

Blue Moon Hemp

3 / 5


The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture is priced at $15.00, and when considering the advertised 100 mg of CBD, these tinctures have a price breakdown of $0.15 per mg of CBD. This places the cost of the tincture on the high-end of average compared to other manufacturers. However, this makes sense considering the smaller bottle size (5 mL). Most companies offer cost savings when you buy higher strength or larger bottle sizes. 

Blue Moon Hemp offers the same in the form of a discount when you order multiple bottles at a time, which reduces the cost per mg of CBD down to $0.10 when purchasing three bottles for $30.00.

Cost Breakdown of Blue Moon Hemp The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture:

The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture — 1 bottle (5 mL) $15.00 100 mg $0.15
The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture — 2 bottles (5 mL each) $25.00 200 mg $0.13
The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture — 3 bottles (5 mL each) $30.00 300 mg $0.10

CBD Potency

According to the product description, The Original CBDMD – Premium Tincture has a mid-level potency of 20 mg/mL. We would consider this a medium to low potency compared to other CBD oils. 

Figuring out an ideal dosage depends on several variables, so if you’re new to CBD, refer to our beginner’s guide to using CBD oil for more information.

Hemp Source

Blue Moon Hemp’s hemp comes from Kentucky — a top hemp producer in the United States.

According to Blue Moon Hemp, its hemp is organic and farmed using eco-friendly practices, although no certifications are provided to back these claims.

In its FAQs section, the company states, “There is no certification or designation for Organically grown Industrial Hemp”, although this isn’t the case and organic certification has been available since the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill.

Third-party lab results don’t confirm any indications of high-quality — some even suggested these tinctures are much weaker than advertised. 

Additionally, third-party lab results are limited in nature, as available tests don’t go beyond cannabinoid profile and potency.

For reference, when looking at third-party lab results, it’s ideal if a company provides testing for contaminants, which would include things such as pesticides, heavy metals, and solvents.

These tests help gauge product quality by detecting possible contaminants, which is why they should be one of the first things to look out for when purchasing CBD products.


According to the ingredients list provided, The Original CBDMD – Premium Tinctures are made using a CBD isolate.

Ideally, a full-spectrum extract containing a diverse range of cannabinoids and terpenes will bring maximum effectiveness, which is most often referred to as the entourage effect. A product using a CBD isolate will be less effective in comparison, as it doesn’t contain cannabinoids beyond CBD.

There are several reasons why one might opt for a CBD isolate product: 

  • They tend to be cheaper
  • Delivers very consistent effects
  • Contains zero THC

Blue Moon Hemp takes an all-natural approach with these tinctures, outlined by the simplified ingredients list of just three products: pure hemp seed oil, cannabidiol extract, and natural flavors.

There’s nothing spectacular about these tinctures to warrant the “premium” in its name — the ingredients used are basic and the manufacturing practices used to make them are standard within the industry.

Blue Moon Hemp’s Shipping & Return Policy

Blue Moon Hemp ships throughout the United States for a flat rate of $3.25 and internationally (where hemp is legal) for $18.25.

Free shipping is available orders $99.00 and over, but this only applies to deliveries made within the United States.

Blue Moon Hemp’s returns and exchanges policy states requests must be made within 10 days of purchasing. Any returns are subject to a 10% restocking fee.

Additionally, products bought under promotional pricing are final sale and can’t be refunded.

Final Verdict: Premium Priced, Low-Grade Tincture

Blue Moon Hemp doesn’t provide anything special to set them apart from the competition. It has a standard formula, contains medium-low potency, and doesn’t offer any additional benefits to differentiate it from 90% of the other CBD oils on the market. 

This product is a good starting point for people who want to get started with CBD and don’t want to break the bank buying a full bottle of CBD — but this is not a premium product by any frame of the imagination. 

If you’re in search of top-shelf tinctures, brands such as Royal CBDMedterra, or Bluebird Botanicals are going to be a better bet.
