CBD 101

Which Company Has the Best Prices on CBD?


Finding the best price for CBD is a difficult task, especially when buying for the first time. Unfortunately, some companies are selling the same amount of CBD for five times the price of others!  To make sure you don't overpay, we have compiled a list of products with the best price per milligram (mg) of CBD in three categories: popular CBD tinctures, bulk CBD tinctures, and full spectrum CBD tinctures. Feel free to download and share these images with friends and family interested in CBD. If you are part of a group that qualifies for CBD assistance programs (veterans, individuals on long-term disability, individuals with low-income) you can save even more! Click here to see what companies offer the best prices for you.

Best Price Per Mg of CBD: Popular CBD Tinctures


For this chart, we compared the most popular CBD companies. Because potency, size, and cost vary between companies, the best prices were based on how much you pay for each milligram (mg) of CBD. To keep things fair, we selected tinctures containing 1,000mg of CBD. When this was not possible, we used the product with the nearest amount of CBD. We ignored any temporary sale prices. We also included each company's shipping policies and how much you are likely to pay per mg of CBD with shipping. Figures were rounded to the second decimal to determine the price per milligram of CBD.

Some people are only interested in full spectrum CBD products due to what is known as the entourage effect (more on that here).

We ignored any temporary sale prices. We also included each company's shipping policies and how much you are likely to pay per mg of CBD with shipping.

Best CBD Assistance Programs


CBD can be expensive, especially for those who rely on it daily. That is why some companies offer assistance programs to make it more affordable. To compare the best CBD assistance programs, we first calculated the price per mg of CBD for each company's best value CBD product(s). We then applied any applicable discounts offered to members of their assistance programs. We then organized our list according to which company offered the best price per milligram of CBD with an assistance program. Be sure to check each company's program individually, as they all have different requirements to qualify for assistance.

What to Look For When Comparing Prices of CBD Products


Not only is it easy to overpay for CBD, even worse, some companies purposely mislead consumers with hemp oil products that contain no CBD. That is why when determining what company has the best price on CBD oil, the most important number to look for is the total milligrams of CBD (not hemp extract, hemp oil, etc). Milligrams is a unit of weight which directly measures the amount of CBD in a product. Milliliters, on the other hand, is a unit of volume used to measure the amount of liquid in a CBD tincture. Often customers think they are getting a deal by purchasing a larger sized tincture and end up paying more per mg of CBD. Potency (mg/ml) can vary greatly so the size (ml) of the tincture says very little about how much CBD (mg) you will be getting. To compare CBD prices, take the cost ($) and divide it by the total CBD content (mg) to determine how much you are really paying for your CBD($/mg).

Other Factors to Consider


Of course, price is the first thing one thinks about comparing products. However, just as integral is the quality of the product and the company that supports it. Here are a couple of things you should look for in a CBD company.

Third-party testing is by far the most important thing to look for in a quality CBD company. Unfortunately, the market for CBD is growing faster than regulations can keep. It is not hard to find companies misleading consumers by selling "hemp oil extracts" that do not contain any CBD or inflating the amount of CBD their products contain. Until the CBD space becomes more regulated, third-party testing is the surest way to determine you are purchasing from a legitimate CBD company.

Full Spectrum and Isolate products are the two major types of CBD products on the market. In short, full spectrum products contain many additional compounds from hemp, whereas isolate products are made from pure CBD. Many people believe they get a better experience with full spectrum products, whereas others prefer isolate based tinctures that taste less like hemp. In any case, if you're looking to stick with a CBD company it is nice to have the option to try both. If you are interested in learning more, you can read our blog on the differences between full spectrum and isolate CBD products.

Assistance programs are another way to determine the character of a company. Here at Lazarus Naturals, we have an industry-leading 40% off assistance program for veterans, people with disabilities, and people with a low income. (If you are interested in applying please follow this link.) Many people rely on CBD as part of their daily routine. We believe access to CBD should be determined by need and not price. A good assistance program is a good sign that a CBD company sees their customers as people, not dollar signs.
