CBDistillery Review - What Is CBDistillery?
CBD and CBD derived products are here to stay, no doubt about it. Even if the powers to be either do their best to slow down most needed clinical testing, or issue ridiculous decrees like the ban on CBD edibles, the CBD industry is growing at a rapid speed.
The Market Realist wrote in November 2019, and I quote...
The passage of the 2018 farm bill paved the way for the US hemp-based CBD market’s expansion. However, according to Canaccord Genuity, the FDA’s lack of regulations on CBD as a food additive or supplement is restricting the market. Many companies have had to limit their CBD offerings to topicals.
On the other hand, Brightfield Group has some of the highest growth estimates for the US CBD market. The market and consumer intelligence company expects the market’s value to grow to grow to $23.7 billion in 2023.
At any rate, the growing market already provides top quality products, ranging from Full Spectrum CBD Oils to CBD Isolates, CBD Edibles, Vape Oils Cremes and Ointments to even CBD for pets.
One of the companies in this crowded market space is CBDistillery and the subject of our CBDistillery Review today.
Let's get after it, shall we?
CBDistillery Review - Summary
Price vs Value Comparison
Overall rating : 4.5 stars / 5
The company earns a 4 1/2 star rating which would have been a notch better were it not for some customer complaints in regards to long shipping delays.
What Is CBDistillery?
CBDistillery was founded in 2016 by Andy Papilon and Lincoln Sorenson who assembled a group of like minded CBD enthusiasts to produce, and bring to market, a full assortment of top quality CBD Oil products.
They made it their mission to ...
produce high-quality, fairly priced, U.S. grown, hemp-derived CBD products and become the premier resource for CBD products and education.
CBDistillery, located in Colorado, is one of the largest, fastest-growing brands in the CBD marketplace today.
CBDistillery was recognized as Mashable’s #1 Value Brand 2019, and is without a doubt one of the leading brands of the industry.
The company made a name for itself by offering top quality products at a very affordable price, In addition, their products are not only available online, but also in almost 1,500 'brick & mortar stores' across the US.
However, there are some reasons that separates CBDistillery from the 'crowd' and deserve to be especially highlighted.
CBDistillery derives their oils exclusively from non-GMO, pesticide-free industrial hemp grown in Colorado, using organic farming practices. They are a certified member of the National Hemp Association (NHA) which advocates for standards in both CBD products and the raw hemp material.
CBD Extraction Process
CO2 Extraction is the superior method for botanical extraction. Therefore, CBDistillery uses the CO2 extraction process to extract their CBD oils from the hemp plant to ensure consistent concentration of CBD without any toxic residue.
3rd Party Testing
Every batch of CBD Oil extracted from the hemp plants will then be tested and analyzed by a 3rd-party lab, the ProVerde Laboratories. The test results, i.e. the concentration of CBD they contain and the overall safety of their ingredients, are posted online for every product (you can take a peek here)
CBDistillery offers a full assortment of CBD products which can be taken sublingual, topical, oral, and inhalation. Some products are available in CBD Full Spectrum and CBD Isolate versions.
CBD Full Spectrum vs. CBD Isolate
What is the difference, you ask? It's really not that complicated. Hemp is a plant of the 'cannabis family', just like its cousin marijuana. However, cannabis contains over 113 other cannabinoids and over 200 terpenes like Linalool (details here).
When extracting Full Spectrum CBD, the multitude of potentially beneficial cannabinoids, AND the plant’s terpenes and flavonoids are being retained. Therefore, you benefit from 20 essential amino acids, Calcium and magnesium, Omega-3 fatty acids, Phosphorus and zinc.
However, when you use CBD Isolate you benefit from a Pure CBD Isolate Oil of at least 99% purity. All other compounds are removed, including THC, the stuff that produce the 'pot high' marijuana user are seeking.
Price / Value Comparison
Comparing prices across multiple brands does not really tell you the real value of the product. To figure out the real value of the product is to divide the cost (price) by the amount of CBD contained in it.
For example: 1 bottle (5,000 mg) of Full Spectrum CBD cost $ 240.00. Divide 240 / 5000 = 0.048. You pay $0.05 per mg. Anything from 5 cents to 12 cents per mg should be considered 'Best Bang For Your Buck!".
CBDistillery Products sells through CDB Oil Solutions
CBDistillery CBD Oil
Their CBD tinctures come in 5 potentials from 250 mg to 5,000 mg per 30 ml bottles. The oil is 100% natural and consists of only 2 ingredients: hemp extract and MCT coconut oil for easier absorption and added energy.
The Full Spectrum tinctures contain a high amount of CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids like CBC, CBG, and CBDA, and terpenes found naturally in the hemp plant. However, they also contain a small amount of THC, less than 0.3%. Although legal and minute, the THC may show in urine tests which may create problems when tested for employment.
If that is the case, you still can enjoy your CBD by using the THC FREE CBD Isolate. The chart blow hows you the tinctures available with the 'per mg value'!

How We Rate CBDistillery
We are using a range of criteria to rate CBD products and their producers. Unfortunately, due to existing FDA regulations, we cannot rate the product by 'effectiveness'. However, we can refer to real user/consumer report. Without further ado, here is what we think about CBDistillery and it's product.
Growing, Extracting & Testing
The company earns a 5-star, best rating for its production process. From growing the plants following organic methods, to C02 extracting and testing of every batch harvested, CBDistillery rates in the top 1 percent of CBD producers.
We examined over 2,000 certifiable customer reviews with an overwhelming 96% rating of 5 stars. That puts the company, again, in the top 1 percent.
CBDistillery products are priced with the affordability of regular folks in mind. The average cost per mg of CBD content is below 7 cents makes the products accessible to almost everyone.
They offer a large variety of products, including tinctures, gummies, capsules, gels, topicals, vapes, isolates, and pet oils.
Use of MTC Oil
They use MTC Oil, derived from Coconuts, to achieve a certain 'smoothness' for their oils and also to lighten up the natural, musky taste. However, although rare, there are people with coconut allergies that need to be informed of the MTC addition.
Numerous Complaints About Shipping
Viewing hundreds and hundreds of user/customer reviews, we came across a relatively high number of complaints about SHIPPING problems. Upset users report unusual long delivery times of several weeks, and no or very slow response from the company.
We contacted the company and they acknowledged that there was indeed a problem in the past. However, they assured us that the issue has been fixed. Obviously, they did fix that problem sine these 'slow-shipping-complaints' stopped near the end of 2019.
Conclusion to CBDistillery Review
Overall, we award CBDistillery 4 1/2 stars out of possible 5. Their products are of above average quality and affordably priced. Having said that, I feel it necessary to tell you real quick about my personal experiences with CBD.
I suffer from PAD (check details here) and found relief from the symptoms by taking CBD. However, it took me over 6 months,and trying more than a dozen different brands, to finally settle on the oil that worked best for me.
Therefore, I suggest to you NOT to give up in case your first try doesn't produce the result you may expect. I talk to many people about CBD and many of them tell me the same story. Most noteworthy, it seems that 'natural and earthy' tasting oils seem to work best.
Although we cannot rely on scientific test result and enjoy CBD with the blessing of our FDA, CBD has found its place in the life of millions of people.
That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed reading my CBDistillery Review as much as I enjoyed writing it. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions, or want to share your experience with CBD, don't be shy...leave word in the box below.
