One of the first CBD products to hit the market was a 1oz dropper bottle with 100 milligrams of CBD. That was back in 2013, so let's see how much has changed.
Some hemp brands still fall in that original range, while others have skyrocketed to unbelievable strengths.
This is incredible for those who need 25, 50, or even 100mg of CBD per day. Recognizing this growing need for stronger CBD oil, these CBD companies were able to lower the cost of CBD by a significant amount, because they're now buying in larger bulk from farmers. Or, in some cases, growing their own high-CBD hemp oil.
If you've been taking CBD since 2013 or 2014, you already know pricing has gone down significantly. Prices will plunge even further once companies can use U.S. grown hemp oil (currently illegal in most states) instead of expensive imported European hemp oil.
Alright, let's round up the most potent CBD oil products you can order online today.
Entourage is a Colorado-based company specializing in full-spectrum hemp oil products.
Cannabis, including hemp, contains chemical compounds called cannabinoids. While some people only look for CBD, as it's the most common in hemp, research has shown that having a diverse combination of cannabinoids working together is more powerful than just one. It's called the entourage effect.
Endoca has a location in California, however, they're mainly out of Europe. This gives them an advantage when it comes to sourcing their hemp oil, and they certainly make it top priority to be organic, GMO and pesticide free.
Alternate Vape is a Michigan-based company that has consistently kept up with the market since its initial release. They've come a long ways in recent months, including a massive change to an all-natural formulation and a 41x boost to potency. Wowzer.
PHE is manufactured (well, packaged) by a company in Michigan, using European hemp oil. There are three versions (Green, Blue, Gold). The Gold is unique because the hemp oil is decarboxylated and filtered to remove excess plant parts, so it has more CBD by volume.
If we're looking purely for the most potent CBD oil, the winner is Entourage WholeFlower. But as we're all too aware of, everyone is different. While Entourage is the strongest in this list, it doesn't win in all the categories that are equally as important to note.
The best selling CBD oil in this list is a tie between Endoca and Alternate Vape.
The best reviewed CBD oil is the Gold Label. By "reviewed," we mean feedback that we've received through customer emails and testimonials.
