The Medics Premium CBD Hemp Extract Tincture Review
The ingredients list is quite short. Just 3 ingredients in the orange flavored oil and 4 in the peppermint flavored oil. The oil comes from Hemp grown in the United States and all ingredients are organic. No odd chemical flavorings, non-GMO, no pesticide or herbicide used on the plants, and Colorado Dept. of Agriculture certified hemp strain(s) are used in the premium CBD product. I have celiac disease and as a result am incredibly sensitive to even microscopic amounts of cross contamination by gluten and dairy products. I am having no issues with these products. The oil is a very clean looking homogenous product with no visible precipitate. Extraction is done by means of supercritical CO2 extraction methods so you are assured there can be no dangerous solvent residue left in the product. Here is an excellent video detailing what a supercritical fluid is and why it is important in medicinal applications https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBRdBrnIlTQ.
The flavoring agents, being organic oils, are really quite nice. I was largely skeptical of the orange flavored variety as I have come across “orange flavored” products in the past that were, to be frank, disgusting. Both the peppermint and the orange flavored oils’ flavoring agents impart a natural and delightful flavor to their respective products. We had 3 taste testers for these products. 1 adult male, 1 adult female, and 1 elementary school aged child. The adult male is one of those “texture” people when it comes to food. The relatively flavorless carrier oil was less than desirable for him; but the other 2 testers found the flavor to be quite nice and were not bothered by the oil at all. Keep in mind that one of these testers is a child. They found the flavor to be rather enjoyable. If this wasn’t the case, believe me, they would have conveyed that without reservation. In fact, all 3 testers agreed that the flavor was pleasant and enjoyable. However, the “texture” individual did find holding the flavorless oil in his mouth a bit uncomfortable due to his texture issues.
Ease of use
This product is very easy to use. No additional apparatus (like a vaporizer) is required. The bottle is small enough to carry with you; although carrying it in a purse may allow for minor leakage from around the bottle top after several uses if it is not kept upright or cleaned around the rim after use. We did not experience this, but have with similar bottles of other products. Therefore, simply throwing this in a bag may not be advised.
Filling 1 dropper full and squeezing the oil out under your tongue (sublingual dosing). Hold this under your tongue for approximately 1 minute.
1-2 full droppers full 1-4 times a day
Value/Cost per milligram
Each 30ml (1 fl. oz.) bottle costs $39.99 and contains 100 mg of CBD. 1 dose is 1 dropper full which equates to approximately 1 ml. Therefore, 1 dose contains approximately 3.33 mg CBD. This puts the CBD in these products at a price point of nearly 40 cents per milligram. While the product is of high quality, the price per milligram far exceeds other products on the market with a much higher strength and equal or potentially superior quality.
While I highly respect and appreciate the use of all organic compounds and The Medics’ attention to keeping the products simple; I was unable to find published lab reports or lot/batch numbers for my product. This made independent verification of the product I received impossible. Having this available would have significantly increased my overall experience and made brand trustworthiness more possible to assess.
Would I buy this again?
While the product itself was quite pleasing in its own right; I require a higher dosage of CBD for my particular applications. This would work quite well for many other applications; especially for a simple regular use supplement for overall general health. In my specific case though, I would not buy this product based primarily on its low strength and high per milligram cost.
