What Is The Best CBD Oil [Our Top Picks, Reviewed & Tested]

What Is The Best CBD Oil? Competition is good, but picking the best CBD Oil  in the best CBD Oil market ever is no easy task. The legalization of Hemp and products derived from hemp and related plants with a THC content of 0.3% or less was long overdue and very welcomed.

However, it also created a massive boom in hemp producing farms as well as in the CBD OIL market. In no time, the number of CBD producers went from a few dozen before 2018 to several hundred. 

Like I said, competition is good, to some extent.  Lot of it keeps the prices down, that's for sure. On the other hand though, it became almost impossible to discern the good from the bad.

Average customers need to weed through the mass of offers that are out there, but most don't have the time, nor the means to do that. Therefore, we at CBD Oil Chronicle spent the last 3 1/2 months predominantly on market and product research in order to come up with a short list of CBD brands that can be trusted and recommended.

CBD Oil Rating Criteria 

First off, we examined exclusively CBD Oil tinctures, and our recommendations do not include CBD Edibles or CBD Vapes. There is one exception, though. We could not exclude the cremes from CBDMedic for reasons I will explain later.

In addition, we summarily excluded products made from crop grown in Asian Countries.  The cost for the stuff is only about half of that of  home grown plants, but so is the quality; just about half !

Ok, so what does it take to know the crap from the good stuff? 

I'll tell you...  a lot of time and foot work. Of course, a lot can be done online, but if you have the chance to actually talk to customers, you will take the opportunity.

You see, we are lucky and are located in Washington State where Cannabis is legal! 

You do not go to jail or prison for having a few joints in your possession, and there are store front 'Marijuana Dispensaries' all over the state. Therefore, we actually can talk to people who buy THC Free or Low THC CBD Oil  ( 0.3% or less )

That gives us the opportunity to ask a lot of questions...like 'what do you buy, how much, for what reason, satisfied or not, etc.

Anyway, here is the criteria list we used to assess the CBD Oils and  determine its quality:

Planting and Harvesting

  • It all starts with selecting the best available seeds and the right growers. We looked for product grown by U.S. Hemp Authority™ certified farms. This guarantees the use of highest quality plants.

Processing &  Extraction

  • Equally important is the Extraction Process. We found out that the CO2 extraction method delivers the best end product since it is not over processing, but focuses on CBD purity and concentration.

3rd Party Lab Testing

  • It is important that EVERY  batch of processed crop has been tested by Independent 3rd Party Lab,  and that the test result are easily accessible by the customers.

Flavor

  • We discussed if flavor should be a rating criteria or not for the longest time. What tastes good to one individual may be perceived as 'nasty tasting' by another. However, after we tasted some CBD Oil from China, we all knew that FLAVOR should be in.   

Value

  • What do you get for your money? The best way to find out is to divide the cost by the amount of CBD per bottle. For example: A 100 ml bottle (3.38 FL OZ) contains 4,850 milligram of CBD cost $439.   Price divided by 4,850 = $0.09 per milligram of CBD

User Feedback

  • In my opinion, feedback from real users is the most important factor to rate a product. 

Website Experience

  • We were looking at the vendor's website with very critical eyes. Criteria: is it easy to find what you are looking for, how is the check-out procedure, etc.

Customer Service

  • And last, but not least, we took customer service to the test by acting totally ignorant and obnoxious. 

Once we agreed on all the details, the actual work started. We rotated from performing the online work to doing the footwork and interviewing customers at Cannabis Stores. Unfortunately, most stores didn't permit us to talk to their customers inside the store, so we had to do that in the parking lot. But in the end, all worked out well.

However, we are sure to have covered all bases and are able to give you an honest valuation o the products.

  • Product Quality (Planting,  Processing &Testing)
  • Flavor
  • Value (what's the 'bang for your buck')
  • User Feedback (Interviews and online testimonials)
  • Website Experience:
  • Customer Service (incl. online support and refund policy)

Savage is around since 2014, starting out as Savage Enterprises, a chain of Vape stores in Southern California. Expanding into CBD producing Savage now has a product line unlike any other outfit in the industry.

Savage carries it ALL, and I am not kidding you. Look at the list of items you can choose from:

CBD Cartridges, CBD Concentrates, CBD Edibles, CBD Edibles & Drink Mix, CBD Epsom Salts, CBD Flower, CBD For Pets, CBD Pens, CBD Pens & Cartridges CBD Softgels, CBD Tinctures, CBD Topicals, CBD Vape Juice.

Their main line of Full Spectrum CBD Oil comes in a wide selection of different flavors:

Lemon Lime, Peach-Pear, Pink Grapefruit, Cucumber Mint are among the favorites of their customers

Their website is 'kind of messy', understandably due to the immense volume of their product offers. I will take some time to find your way around. However, ALL the pertinent information can be found on the site.

With all the good, there comes one bad, though. Savage DOES NOT have a 'Money Return Policy'.

They say in their FAQ section:

"Unfortunately we don’t do returns. If you feel that a return is necessary, please contact us directly".

That's the reason for a reduction of 1/2 star, which results in the overall rating of 4.5 stars.

Our goal is simple, provide only the best 100% natural, unadulterated CBD products to enhance the quality of life for our family, friends and customers. We feel that in this current “wild west” that the CBD industry has become, everyone deserves the right to have access to clean, quality, safe and honest products. No hiding behind jargon, hiding ingredients to the use of potentially harmful ingredients along with open and transparent reporting (COA’s).
Our ethos is to always provide all natural, ecologically friendly, clean, accurately labeled premium quality products to everyone. We absolutely stand by our products quality and potential".

Their oil is of the highest quality, with a rich and earthy  good taste. The cost per mg is 'middle of the pack' and constitutes a 'good bang for your buck'!

They used to carry ONLY  3 products but have now added Soft Gels and Gummies to their product line.

Their website is functional with lots of information and easy to find 'stuff'. Unfortunately, they have no live support and only offer a contact form. However, their response time is extremely short and we got call backs between  5 and 7 hours, respectively,  when we did our tests. 

What Is The Best CBD Oil On The Market?

In case you should ask this question, the answer is simple: 'We don't know!' There is no simple test to determine which oil is better than another one;  or to state what oil is good for what purpose. 

 But let me tell you a little story. The other night I had a toothache because I cracked a tooth. I am old enough to know NOT to crack  nuts with my teeth, but that's what I did.

The darn tooth started to hurt bad and I didn't know what to do. I don't like to take pain pills because I am on a bunch of prescription drugs as it is.  

However, I use NuLeaf Natural CBD Oil to find relief from PAD (read the article here), and it does work like a peach.  So I tried the CBD, put 1/2 dropper of the oil on the tooth and on the gum around it.

And guess what? It took about 3 minutes for the pain to recede and I could go back to sleep again.

Similarly, a while back I ran a test with another CBD brand. For a whole month I switched from NuLeaf Natural to CBDPure to see if it would work as well as NuLeaf; and it did,

Subsequently, it is impossible to say what's the best CBD Oil on the market.

That's it for today. Like always, thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions or input, please leave word in the box below.
