With so many CBD tinctures on the market, it can be difficult to determine which products are right for you. Tinctures may be significantly more expensive when you look at the cost per milligram (mg) of CBD.
This blog is the second in a three-part series reviewing price per milligram of CBD tinctures. We will review both CBD isolate based products and Assistance Programs in upcoming articles.
What Are Full Spectrum Products?
Full spectrum products contain additional compounds from hemp extract. They are often described as having a “hempier”, more natural or “earthy” taste. Many people recommend full spectrum CBD products over isolate based products. They believe that all of the compounds found in cannabis, not just CBD, play an important role in the body. These people often cite a theory known as the entourage effect. It suggests that all the compounds found in hemp work synergistically to create an effect that could not be achieved by any one compound on its own.
The entourage effect is a staple argument of those who believe in whole plant medicines over treatments which isolate the active ingredient. However, at this point in time, there isn’t enough scientific research to determine what impact, if any, the entourage effect has as it relates to CBD products. For now, CBD users only have testimonial evidence to go on. Still, there are many who swear by full spectrum products, but until there are more double-blind studies, there is no way to tell if any added benefits are simply due to the placebo effect.
Best Price per Mg of CBD: Popular Full Spectrum CBD Tinctures
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 four 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. 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!
Lazarus Naturals offers an industry-leading 60% discount for veterans, low-income households and individuals on long-term disability. Visit our Assistance Program page for more information and to find out if you qualify.
How to Compare CBD Product Prices
The most important number to look for when you’re comparing products is the total milligrams of CBD. This should not be confused with milliliters. Milliliters are used to measure the amount of liquid in a CBD tincture and milligrams measure the amount of CBD in a product. In other words, the size of the tincture says little about the amount of CBD you will be getting.
Please Note: Shipping costs, temporary sale prices and Assistance Program discounts were not included in our assessment.
