CBDistillery Review

CBDistillery is one of the largest players in the CBD space. They’ve been around for a long time (relative to most CBD companies) and offer a large and diverse lineup of products to choose from. 

The cost of CBDistillery CBD products are also on the lower end of average in almost every category. 

This is a safe brand to go with if you just want a simple CBD product for a good price that’s going to do what’s advertised. This company doesn’t offer any particularly unique product formulas — but as far as pure and simple CBD product go, CBDistillery is hard to beat. 

Mission/Charity 4/5

CBDistisillery’s admirable mission to supply consumers with gimmick-free products has gone above and beyond what most companies have achieved. 

The aforementioned Time Square billboard campaign, as well as the #CBDMOVEMENT radio, social media, and email campaign to inject a healthy dose of integrity within the CBD market, is both refreshing and much needed in its current state. 

We love the idea that a well-respected company has taken the initiative to do this.

CBDistillery also offers discounts for active military members and military veterans, as well as firefighters, police officers, and EMTs.

Hemp Source 4/5

CBDistillery is a Colorado-based company and uses a lot of hemp grown in this state — a state known for having a culture of virtuous hemp farmers with a preference for organically-grown hemp plants. 

Although nothing is listed on their website regarding the quality of the hemp this company uses, the third-party lab tests always come out clean and the company has an excellent track record when it comes to quality. 

Product Range 5/5

CBDistillery has a superb range of CBD products ranging from gummies, capsules, tinctures, creams, and pet oils, all of which come in different bottle sizes, flavors, and types of extract (isolates and full-spectrum). 

The products are designed with simple formulas containing simple ingredients, which aligns with the company’s gimmick-free attitude. 

Innovation 5/5

Though CBDistillery isn’t looking to reinvent the wheel, its gimmick-free campaign to inject integrity into the CBD market and to subsequently combat superficially motivated trend-hopping companies pushing out borderline useless products is an incredibly smart move. 

Usually, product innovation is paramount, especially when the sole purpose is to push the envelope and break out of the standard CBD mold; however, CBDistillery’s aforementioned core ethos is enough to earn them our highest rating. 

Safety 5/5

CBDistillery’s desire to not cut corners is exemplified through not only independent third-party testing but through comprehensive educational and informational literature.

Though blogs and articles are commonplace in many CBD company websites, CBDistillery has focused its attention on useful CBD guides that explore research-based, scientifically-backed studies which are cited back to their original sources – this, alone, is wholly refreshing. 

On top of this, each product page has useful health benefits and recommended dosing information, as well as a full list of ingredients used. 

Customer Service 4/5

CBDistillery has a slightly disappointing return policy of just 7 days – most companies will offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on all products.

Despite this, the customer service team is impeccable. On the phone, they address you by your first name and will provide you with detailed and valuable information on any query you have.

CBDistillery Company Review

About the Company

CBDistillery, founded in Louisville, Colorado in 2016 by co-founders Andrew Papillion and Lincoln Sorenson, was established as a legacy brand of Balanced Health Botanicals with experience at the core of its foundations.

In an era where CBD has become a magnet for lowly scam artists looking to take advantage of a rising, increasingly profitable trend, companies like CBDistillery have become a beacon for lower-cost products that don’t ultimately sacrifice on quality.

To date, CBDistillery has become one of the United States’ fastest-growing CBD retailers, with a revenue reach of 12.3 million in the third quarter of 2018.

Here we’ll examine what CBDistillery is doing well and point out a few areas in need of attention. By the end of this article, you’ll know if CBDistillery is the right company for you — or not.

CBDistillery

CBDistillery Full-Spectrum CBD Oil Tinctures 30 mL

4 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    250 – 5000 mg

  • Potency:

    8.3 – 166 mg/mL

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.05 – $0.12

  • Extract Type :

    Full-spectrum

  • THC Content:

    <0.3%

CBDistillery has ten different oils – both isolates and full-spectrum options – in five different overall CBD strengths per bottle: 250 mg, 500 mg, 1000 mg, 2500 mg, and 5000 mg.

These oils are, therefore, ranged between mild and ultra-strength.

The first five products in the “oils” category are CBDistillery’s Full-Spectrum Oil Tinctures.

According to the Certificate of Analysis (COA), each bottle contains trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as well as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and CBD.

The 500 mg, 1000 mg, and 2500 mg strength options are listed as three of the company’s top-selling products.

B) CBDistillery THC-Free Pure CBD Isolate Tinctures

$29.00 – $220.00

CBDistillery CBD Isolate Tinctures 30 mL

  • Total CBD:

  • Cost per mg of CBD:

    $0.11 – $0.04

  • Extract Type :

  • THC Content :

    0.0%

The other five products in the “oils” category are CBDistillery’s THC-Free Pure CBD Oil Tincture, described by the company as “a perfect way to get your daily CBD without any THC” and “are a great way of to incorporate 99% pure CBD into your daily routine”

The ingredients used in the THC-free products are no different from those in the full-spectrum products listed above, aside from the fact that there are no other cannabinoids present – so if you’re conscious about having absolutely no THC in your body, then these oils are definitely for you.

2. CBD Pet Products

CBDistillery Pet Tinctures

$30.00 – $44.00
CBDistillery

CBDistillery CBD Pet Tinctures 30 mL

4.2 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    150 – 600 mg

  • Potency:

    5 – 20 mg/mL

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.07 – $0.20

  • Extract Type:

    Full-spectrum

  • THC Content:

    <0.3%

These pet oils are a standard full-spectrum oil that utilizes various other cannabinoids such as THC*, CBC, CBG, and CBDA on top of CBD in its CO2 extracted hemp.

According to the product page, the company states “if you enjoy The CBDistillery’s regular CBD oil tinctures, your four-legged family member will love our CBD Pet Tinctures” which are “great for dogs, cats & other four-legged friends” and is “made with organic cold-pressed Hemp seed oil”.

3. Edibles

Gummies (Regular & Nightime)

CBDistillery has crafted two separate CBD edible products: Daytime and Nighttime.

The former is useful for supplementing your CBD requirements throughout the day – the use of natural and organic flavorings and colorings in with the anhydrous hemp oil provides you with a sweeter taste than standard hemp tasting gummies, which are known to be bitter and earthy.

The Nighttime option is specifically engineered to aid the user’s sleep/wake cycle with the inclusion of melatonin. Research shows that melatonin displays “promise to prevent phase shifts from jet lag and improve insomnia in otherwise healthy adults” [2].

Both options are vegan, so if you’re living a “plant-based lifestyle”, these products will suit your general dietary requirements.

Each bottle contains 30 mg of CBD per gummy – there are 30 gummies in each for a total of 900 mg in the bottle. The recommended serving size is 1 gummy, then increasing the dose if required after an hour

4. CBD Capsules

A) CBDistillery Full-Spectrum Capsules

$60.00 – $130.00
CBDistillery

CBDistillery Full-Spectrum CBD Capsules 30 – 60 Count

4.67 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    750 – 1800 mg

  • Potency:

    25 – 30 mg per Capsule

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.07 – $0.08

  • Extract Type:

    Full-spectrum

  • THC Content:

    <0.3%

Capsules are arguably the most convenient methods of ingesting CBD alongside oils and tinctures – they don’t require you to manually measure out your dose since it’s already done for you and you can conceal them discreetly in your bag if you’re out in public.

CBDistillery offers its CBD capsules in various strengths and sizes. The full-spectrum products include 750 mg, 900 mg, and 1800 mg of CBD in each bottle, and contains less than 0.3% THC.

B) CBDistillery CBD Isolate Capsules

$70.00 – $130.00
CBDistillery

CBDistillery Isolate CBD Capsules 30 – 60 Count

4.67 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    900 – 1800 mg

  • Potency:

    30 mg per Capsule

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.07 – $0.08

  • Extract Type:

    Isolate

  • THC Content:

    0%

Similar to its full-spectrum sibling, these CBD isolate capsules are incredibly convenient – the only difference is these contain no other cannabinoids aside from CBD.

If you’re concerned with ingesting THC – no matter how little is in a product – then these isolate gummies are a viable purchase.

They come in 30 and 60 count packages, with each capsule containing 30 mg of CBD – the prices are $70 and $130 respectively.

5. CBD Concentrates Concentrates

CBDistillery 99+% Pure CBD Isolate Powder (Crystalline) from Hemp

$20.00 – $420.00
CBDistillery

CBDistillery CBD Isolates 0.1 – 14 g

4.67 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    500 mg – 14000 mg

  • Potency:

    99.9%

  • Cost per mg of CBD:

    $0.03 – $0.04

  • Extract Type:

    Isolate

  • THC Content:

    0.0%

CBD isolate powders are some of the most versatile products currently on the market.

Due to them being odorless, flavorless, and colorless, they provide a base for CBD DIY enthusiasts to satiate their desire to create makeshift products.

The primary advantage CBD isolate powders have over other CBD products is that you can combine them with a carrier oil such as coconut oil or hemp seed oil to create a tincture, or you can mix them with olive oil, beeswax, and essential oils to create a salve.

CBDistillery’s isolate powders are extracted using the CO2 extraction method – the company claims that this “provides a natural and clean” product.

There are two products available: CBD Isolate Powder (Crystalline) and CBDelicious Formulation Powder, both of which “have exactly the same components and test the same, but have slightly different refining methods that change the consistency”.

6. CBD Topicals

CBDistillery CBD Topicals 1 oz

4.33 / 5

  • Total CBD:

    25 – 500 mg

  • Potency:

    16 mg/mL

  • Cost per mg CBD:

    $0.12 – $0.36

  • Extract Type:

    Isolate

  • THC Content:

    <0.3%

CBDistillery’s topical products are specifically used to “heal dry, cracked skin and moisturize with CBD oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and other natural ingredients” and are “a great way to conveniently receive the benefits of CBD for up to 36 hours”, according to the main topicals product page.

The inclusion of coconut oil in each of the topicals, which includes a salve, a cream, and a lip balm, is as smart as it is practical, especially when applied onto the skin – research suggests that coconut oil shows “effectivity through significant improvement in skin hydration and increase in skin surface lipid levels” [3].

The cream and the salve can potentially be used as both an anti-inflammatory and, by extension, an acne treatment with the inclusion of tea tree in the formulas.

The lip balm’s formula promotes healthier, plumper, and moisturized lips due to the combination of shea butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax.

Though it’s commonly thought that most topicals, whether they be the CBD variety or not, only target surface layer issues; however, there’s convincing evidence in test animals that CBD can be delivered past the surface layer and into the bloodstream [4].

7. Vape Pens & Cartridges

    Not Listed

CBDistillery has a huge variety of vape oils and flavors. Some of the flavors include Grand Daddy Purp (a blend of strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry), lavender vanilla, strawberry lemonade, and grape.

Vaping is a good way to get your dose of CBD quickly by bypassing the need for it to go into the digestive system and straight into your lungs where it will immediately absorb into its microcapillaries – this means that more CBD gets into your bloodstream.

CBDistillery offers vape products in the form of e-liquids to refill your vape and disposable pens and cartridges.

The e-liquids come in 15mL, 1000 mg bottles for $60. The disposable pens have 200 mg each and will cost you $32.

Safety & Third-Party Testing

As per the company ethos, CBDistillery exemplifies a company that takes transparency, quality control, and overall safety very seriously.

Each product is third-party tested by ProVerde Laboratories or Botanacor Laboratories – both independent laboratories specializing in hemp and cannabis testing – and shows the cannabinoid profile and purity of the product, specifically heavy metals and solvents.

Often we think of safety through the lens of organic practices and third-party testing, but CBDistillery shifts this focus towards education as well, which is one of the most important safety resources in the CBD industry.

The company’s blog features comprehensive articles encompassing the hows, the whats, and the whys of CBD usage, which includes how CBD reacts with our endocannabinoid system, why CO2 extracted CBD oil is a superior choice and an overall guide to what CBD is.

Furthermore, the company offers product benefits, recommended dosing suggestions, and general information on each of its products.

With this, you have the information and the knowledge to safely make informed choices that are imperative when purchasing CBD products.

What Does CBDistillery Do Well?

1. Large Selection of CBD Products

The company has done a fantastic job of producing a large range of cost-effective products without compromising or lowering the overall quality, which upholds its mission statement to get high-quality CBD into the hands of all those who need it without charging an extortionate amount.

2. Comprehensive Educational Information

CBDistillery’s blog articles offer a breadth of useful information and educational literature, which is a fairly common trend amongst most CBD companies.

However, the blog articles are incredibly well-written, engaging, and informative – each claim made is backed by scientific research and is cited back to their original sources. This is incredibly important, especially in an era where CBD information is commonly regurgitated, resulting in little to no accuracy.

3. Excellent Customer Service

Often we talk about a company’s marketing campaign or product quality as its defining feature, but CBDistillery particularly excels in its customer service, especially when speaking to its customer service representatives.

We’ve queried the company for both general and specific information and each time the customer representative we’ve spoken to has been patient, friendly, and knowledgable.

Where Could CBDistillery Improve?

1. More Specialized and Niche Products

This may seem contradictory considering we sing the praises of CBDistillery’s decision to keep things simple and gimmick-free, but for a company with such an excellent reputation for consistent quality, we’d like to see different specialized and innovative niche products added.

We believe the gimmick-free powered #CBDMOVEMENT is a solid foundation for more promising and developed products in the future.

2. No Exact Hemp Source Location Specified

According to the company’s General FAQ page, CBDistillery is based in Colorado and manufactures all its products there too – however, the only reference it makes to the hemp source is that it’s purchased domestically.

The main grievance we have with this is isn’t simply down to lack of transparency alone; it’s to do with a company seemingly not having ultimate control over its products from the ground up.

When a company can pinpoint exactly where its hemp is sourced, it generally means that there’s a certain level of control and knowledge over the hemp’s quality.

Shipping & Returns Policy

CBDistillery uses UPS exclusively for all orders and is shipped out within 48 hours after payment has been processed. Some orders may take between two to four days depending on busyness.

The company operates during normal business hours – 9 am to 5 pm Mountain Daylight Time (MDT) Monday to Friday.

Once an order has gone through, the estimated delivery time is five to seven days. Free shipping is applied on all orders over $75. No international shipping is provided.

According to CBDistillery’s Returns Policy, the company offers a fairly generous 7-day refund timeframe with no money-back guarantee – other companies offer a 30-day money-back guarantee.

All returned items must be unopened and in pristine condition – all shipping costs must be paid for by the customer, which is standard practice amongst most CBD companies.

Final Verdict: A Great Option Across the Board

CBDistillery is a fantastic company if you’re looking to buy affordable CBD products online.

The company has a ton of variety, which means that you should be able to find the right product to supplement your daily CBD requirements.

Though the company boasts low prices, it’s not substituted for shady practices and low quality. Each product is thoroughly tested, which helps to maintain the company’s safety-conscious reputation.

It’s also clear that CBDistillery sees the bigger picture. A common problem that’s been running rampant throughout the CBD industry is the gimmicky – arguably useless – products being created by clueless lifestyle companies jumping on a trend.

The Gimmick-Free Campaign, as well as the #CBDMOVEMENT, is a commendable and effective call-to-action for consumers to avoid superficial products and steer them in the direction of legitimate CBD sources – this is the company’s crowning achievement and we hope it continues.
