⚡ Top picks

Strongest CBD at the best prices?

One of the most popular CBD brands on the market has just announced that they’re slashing their prices by up to 52%. And this isn’t just a temporary sale, but a permanent change in business strategy.

Why, you ask? Well, cbdMD claims that they want to provide customers with stronger, high quality CBD at the best prices on the market. Sounds pretty good, right? Hmmm…

Quite often in life, if something seems to be too good to be true, then it is. But folks, as astonishing as it sounds, this is the real deal. What a game changer!

Check out my cbdMD reviews below to find out what I thought about their products.

cbdMD review summary

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some products from cbdMD for a while, so I was thrilled when they agreed to send me a package from their head office in Charlotte, North Carolina a couple of months ago.

I had actually tested and written up some notes on a wide range of their products just before the brand announced that they would be drastically lowering their prices. And I was going to be recommending them either way so, at these new prices, I really cannot recommend them highly enough!

You’re getting clean, high-quality products, at a price more accessible than ever before – what’s not to love?

  • Some of the most affordable prices I’ve seen
  • Unique, highly effective formulas
  • High quality ingredients
  • Reputable company

  • Extracts are made from organic, non-GMO hemp
  • Comprehensive third-party testing (for potency and purity)
  • Easy to navigate website
  • Thousands of five star cbdMD reviews from customers

cbdMD reviews: The products

I’ve seen so many positive cbdMD reviews on Reddit over the last few years, it’s safe to say that my expectations of these products were very high going into this process. cbdMD has a great variety of products to choose from, but here are some of the products I tried that left the biggest impression on me.

Focus Capsules review

cbdMD Focus Capsules
Total Score iIndependently reviewed by CBD Incubator
Excellent option

The product I was most excited about trying were the Focus Capsules. This is because I struggle to concentrate sometimes and find myself procrastinating instead of working – a common problem I’m sure.

In the past, I’ve really enjoyed taking CBD and CBG together in the mornings as I find it to be a fantastic combination of cannabinoids to help boost motivation, focus, and mood.

These capsules not only offer approx 28 mg of CBD and 8 mg of CBG in each serving (two capsules), but they also contain Vitamin B12, Magtein, EnXtra, bacopa monnieri, green oats, and huperzine to further enhance the effects offered.

  • Magtein is a popular nootropic compound that combines magnesium, vitamin C, and vitamin D3, to support mental clarity, boost memory function, and overall cognitive function
  • EnXtra is a caffeine alternative, derived from alpinia galangal (member of the ginger family), that boosts energy, alertness, and focus without the caffeine crash
  • Bacopa monnieri is a nootropic herb, long used in traditional medicine for longevity and cognitive enhancement
  • Green oats are a powerful herb that is said to help soothe the brain and nervous system, reducing tension and stress and enhance energy and endurance
  • Huperzine is a chemical compound that has been shown to enhance learning and memory and helps to support focus

They’re fairly large capsules (I guess they have to be to fit all of those ingredients in!), but they slip down the throat easily. I can’t say I notice a huge difference on the energy front, but these capsules are great for helping me get stuff done!

Around 40 minutes to an hour after taking two capsules, my brain just feels less cluttered. My thoughts are more focused and I’m able to concentrate on the task at hand more easily. I like these Focus Capsules and I’ll definitely be using them every weekday until they’re gone.

cbdMD gummies reviews

If you’re tempted by cbdMD’s gummy range then let me tempt you some more, as they are delicious, especially the raspberry flavored ones!

They have a good range to pick from, including three different types of broad spectrum CBD gummies, which are THC-free, as well as a highly potent full spectrum gummy option for those with more severe symptoms or for anyone who finds that they need a higher dose of CBD to achieve the effects they want.

Broad-Spectrum CBD Gummies

Calming Gummies

#1 — Best in class!

These are one of my favorite broad-spectrum gummies as they have tons of extra ingredients that help enhance the relaxing and calming properties of CBD, including ashwagandha, L-Theanine, chamomile, lemon balm, valerian root, and GABA.

They are wonderful for helping my husband unwind after a hard day’s work. He said he feels like a weight’s been lifted and they help him worry less about the stresses from work. A sense of calm takes over.

I don’t really feel stressed too often, but I do really enjoy chilling out with these gummies. They kind of bring me down from the day and help me switch off from work which, as anyone who works from home will know, can be quite hard sometimes!

I would also recommend these Calming Gummies to anyone looking for a melatonin-free sleep gummy.

These have similar ingredients to the Calming Gummies, although in differing amounts, with the added benefit of the hormone melatonin to help your body prepare itself for sleep.

Full Spectrum CBD Gummies

#1 — Best in class!

These gummies harness the full spectrum power of the entourage effect and deliver highly potent and effective doses to you in each gummy for a great price.

For just $90 (or just $67.49 w/ code 6000 FOR A LIMITED TIME), you can buy 6,000 mg of CBD split between 60 gummies (100 mg per gummy), which works out at $1.50 per gummy or 0.015c per mg of CBD.

These will, no doubt, be a godsend for people that need higher doses to achieve the symptom relief they need to lead more quality, enjoyable lives because now, access to more potent doses of CBD don’t have to break the bank.

I just price-checked cbdMD vs Charlotte’s Web and their 6,000 mg CBD tincture is $120. Then I checked at MedTerra and their 3,000 mg CBD tincture is $120. So, is cbdMD’s new pricing going to disrupt the entire industry?

cbdMD cream reviews

cbdMD offers two different topical options for all of your localized aches and pains, whether they be from injury, surgery, or post-workout soreness. One has a cooling action and the other a warming action, so you can choose which you prefer and you’ll also have to choose between three different strengths.

When it comes to CBD topicals, I tend to prefer higher strengths, so it’s great that both their Freeze roll-on and Recover cream are available with 3,000 mg of CBD, but you can also get a 1,500 mg and 750 mg version of each. Both the Freeze and Recover also contain extra therapeutic ingredients to compliment the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of the CBD.

Freeze 1500mg review

cbdMD freeze rub
Total Score iIndependently reviewed by CBD Incubator
Excellent option

Alongside the CBD, cbdMD Freeze contains:

  • Menthol – the cooling sensation offers comfort and the pain relieving properties are often used to help manage pain.
  • Arnica – well-known for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. Commonly used for pain caused by osteoarthritis, as well as bruising and swelling after surgery.
  • Tea tree – powerful anti-inflammatory that can help soothe and relieve pain.
  • Aloe vera – well-known to be a potent anti-inflammatory that you usually see treating sunburn.

As you’d expect, the Freeze roll-on feels divinely cool and refreshing on your skin when you apply it. My neighbour appreciated the roll-on application method as it helped him reach places without bending and twisting too much.

He said he loves it as it really helps get him going in the morning. The coolness wakes him up and the Freeze lotion helps relieve the pain and tightness he has in some of his joints when he wakes up.

Customer reviews of this product are fantastic, even on the lower strength version (300 mg) which isn’t available anymore. It’s also so refreshing and soothing after a tough workout!

It seems that cbdMD have truly hit on a winning formula here!

cbdMD Recover review

cbdMD Recover cream
Total Score iIndependently reviewed by CBD Incubator
Great option

Alongside the CBD, cbdMD’s Recover Cream contains:

  • Histamine dihydrochloride – an over the counter product used to relieve muscle and joint pain
  • Arnica – see above
  • Aloe vera – see above
  • MSM – widely used supplement used for relieving joint pain, stiffness, and swelling

cbdMD’s Recover Cream is also a pretty hardcore pain relief cream! This would be an excellent choice for people living with arthritis or experiencing post surgery pain, especially if you prefer the warming action over cooling.

So far, I’ve only used it on sore muscles from being sat hunched in front of a computer all day, but it’s very effective. I usually rub some of the cream into the areas that feel tight and then do some gentle stretching and I feel good as new!

We also used this cream on my husband’s back during a three day drive to Texas and he was suitably impressed. He said it worked better than the pain patches he’s used in the past and the drive would have been a lot harder without it.

Full review coming soon

cbdMD brand review

So, we know the products work, but what about the company? What’s going on behind closed doors, and can we trust the quality and service?

Let’s take a look at some of the reasons I found that make cbdMD worth shouting about.

1. Unique, highly effective formulas

cbdMD has a large, diverse, and unique product range that can help alleviate a vast number of symptoms extremely effectively.

They achieve this by enhancing their product’s CBD content with extra beneficial ingredients to better suit differing needs. For example, the Focus capsules I took had a whole host of other brain-boosting ingredients in them, making them an extremely effective nootropic.

The fact that many of their products are better targeted to your needs, they are much more likely to have an effect where you need it. The Calm range will be ideal for those suffering from anxiety or stress, the Focus range is great for increasing mental clarity and reducing brain fog, and the PM/Sleep range is fantastic for enhancing sleep quality.

2. High quality ingredients

cbdMD uses high quality ingredients in all of their products to ensure the end product is the best quality it can be for your health.

For example, they utilize tapioca syrup in their gummies, which is a healthier alternative to sugar and corn syrup, to cut down on the calorie count. They also use all natural flavors and colors.

3. Reputable company

cbdMD enjoys a great reputation in the industry as accredited members of almost every hemp association and group going. Not only are they certified by the US Hemp Authority and the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). They’re also members of the Hemp Industries Association, the US Hemp Roundtable, and the Natural Products Association.

cbdMD is also the first CBD company to offer NSF for Sport certified products. That’s the same certifications that major sports leagues like NFL, MLB, NBA, and more use to monitor the quality of products their athletes use.

I can only imagine how many regulatory hoops they had to jump through to achieve all that.

4. 60-day, risk-free guarantee

Some companies will sell you a product and not allow you to return it unless it was damaged in some way, others will offer you a 30-day return window, but cbdMD is so confident in their product quality that they offer a huge 60-day, no-risk guarantee.

If you’re not 100% satisfied with your purchase, no matter your order size, you can return your items to cbdMD and they’ll give you a full refund. They’ll even cover the postage!

5. Hemp extracts are made from organic, non-GMO hemp

According to their website, their organic, non-GMO hemp is sourced from hemp plants that are grown in the US, but they don’t specify whereabouts exactly.

I guess it doesn’t really matter where the hemp was grown within the US, as long as it’s organic and clean, which can be tested for (and is by cbdMD and third parties).

6. Comprehensive third-party testing (for potency and purity)

One of the most important things I noticed, when poking around cbdMD’s website, is that every single product I checked had been comprehensively tested by third-parties to verify its potency and safety.

By the looks of it, all cbdMD’s products are tested for contaminants such as pesticides, heavy metals, microbials, mycotoxins, and residual solvents (if applicable). You can also access a full cannabinoid profile of each product which confirms exactly how much CBD, CBG, or CBN is in there.

Most companies these days test for cannabinoid potency, but not many test for purity (contaminants), so this is a great testament to a brand that puts your safety before making a couple of extra bucks.

7. Easy to navigate website

I also love the easy shopping experience that cbdMD offers. Their website is super easy to navigate with all of the product information being easy to find, including ingredient listings, lab reports, customer reviews, and FAQ’s.

8. Best prices on the market

cbdMD’s recent price drop makes investing in their products a no-brainer. I was already very impressed with their clean, potent, and effective range, and the prices they were charging weren’t dissimilar to other premium brands on the market.

If I’d written this review one month ago, I’d have said that their products are a little on the pricey side, but they’re worth it. Now, I can’t recommend them highly enough. If you’re at all curious about how CBD may be able to change your life or are thinking about switching brands, then I would suggest you try this range from cbdMD.

Hopefully this move from cbdMD will disrupt the market and bring other brands’ CBD prices down too, but let’s not forget who did it first!

10. Thousands of five star cbdMD reviews from customers

I haven’t personally tested cbdMD customer service just yet, but thousands of positive reviews from previous customers tell me that it must be pretty good. For a company to have as many satisfied customers as cbdMD do, they must be doing something right!

cbdMD reviews: The final word

cbdMD have just made access to potent, effective, premium grade products over 50% easier. No longer do you have to shell out hundreds of dollars every month to ensure you’re getting the best CBD products on the market, because finally there’s a big company out there that’s looking after the little guy (me).

I have to say though, if I’d paid for my cbdMD products last month at their higher prices, I might be inclined to be a bit annoyed with them, so I feel sorry for anyone who finds themselves in that position, but moving forward, we can all start taking advantage of this brand’s epic new pricing right now.
