Is CBDistillery Legit?
Founded by a group of Colorado natives in 2016, CBDistillery aims at giving the masses easy access to “hemp-derived CBD products, widespread education (on the cannabis and CBD industry), the latest industry research (on benefits and side effects of CBD), and verified consumer testimonials (of their products).
What’s more, they do their utmost to provide CBD at competitive prices – such that the masses can make the most of what natural cannabis has to offer. They believe that “people have a right to high-quality, fairly priced, US grown, hemp-derived CBD products”. With this ideology, the company started what has come to be known as #CBDMOVEMENT™.
Based on this belief, they have designed and formulated a range of very potent and safe (third-party lab-tested), high-quality CBD products that range from tinctures to capsules, from pain relief balms to skincare products, from gummies to vape products, and CBD isolates to other THC-free options in CBD products. Their offerings also include pet products for your furry companions.

While their website is nice to look at with sufficient FAQs and blogs to inform users about the benefits of using CBD, and specifically their products, we still felt it needed some work.
There should have been more tabs for each category of products, depending on the ways of administration. For instance, there is no tab (with a link) for their vaping and pet products on the home page. Besides, there is also no link for the CBD edibles page (like gummies).
Users coming to their site will get the impression that they only sell tinctures, topicals, and capsules, besides CBD isolate crystals. When one clicks on the ALL tab on the website, they are guided to a page with all of their products, with a menu of product types on the left.
Nevertheless, their products are potent, clean, and pure, extracted with the help of the popularly used CO2 extraction method, making their products safe and effective. What’s more, their products are very affordable too!
Selling a wide range of products meant for all purposes as well as offering different means of administering them, the brand offers free shipping for all domestic orders worth over $75.
Their products are made from CBD extracts sourced from home-grown, organically grown, industrial hemp cultivated in Colorado. Their hemp extracts are certified by the US Hemp Authority.
They also run a transparent business, making their products’ third-party lab tests public by posting it on their website. However, the test reports available on their product page don’t contain their safety profiles. To fetch that, you need to purchase a product, scan the QR code, and get the detailed report.
Here are a few details about three of CBDistillery’s most favored products that we tried out.
CBDistillery’s Full-Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (1000mg; 30ml)
CBDistillery’s CBD oils are available in several variants, that is, not including those for pets.
They have both full-spectrum and THC-free CBD oil tinctures to allow users the benefit of choice. Those who want to avail of the entourage effect can use the full-spectrum CBD variants, while those who are afraid to test positive on a drug test can opt for the THC-free variants.
Both these variants are available in different potencies – 250mg, 500mg, 1000mg, 2500mg, and 5000mg – allcontained in 30ml bottles.
We selected the 1000mg variant for our review, as it’s somewhat in the middle, besides it being one of the preferred potencies by most users. It provides 33mg of CBD per serving – a serving that is best suited for people with any and all conditions.
Ways of Consumption
Like all CBD oil tinctures, CBDistillery’sFull-Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (1000mg)is most effective for anxiety when administered under the tongue. The CBD in the oil gets absorbed through the sublingual glands under the tongue and is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, without any delay or wastage.
Alternatively, you can mix it with your favorite (cold) drinks. However, this takes a bit longer to take effect, as it has to go through your digestive system.
As with any other CBD product, the dosage for Full-Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (1000mg)is completely up to the user:
- His or her body weight
- The severity of the condition being treated for
- Individual endocannabinoid system
- Chemical balance within the body as well as the nervous system
- Age group
- Intended effect
No two individuals can go with the same dosage. The same individual may also require different dosages for different conditions or requirements.
This means that one must calibrate the dosage by microdosing. That is to say, start low, and increase gradually until you find your CBD sweet spot.
Note that CBD is biphasic. When taken in small doses, it may have one effect, whereas when taken in higher doses, it can have an opposite reaction. For instance, in small doses, CBD makes you more energetic and refreshed, free of anxiety or depression. However, if you take it in higher doses, it promotes sleep, numbs pain and reduces your body’s reaction to foreign bodies by means of lowering inflammation.
Lab tests for all of CBDistillery’s tinctures are done by independent lab ProVerde Laboratories. However, the lab reports available on the product page of the website provides only the cannabinoid profile and not the safety profiles. For that, one must purchase a product, scan the QR code on the label of the product you’ve bought, and fetch the detailed lab report of that particular batch of CBD oil.
Two individuals from our dedicated team of testers reviewed the product. Let’s hear directly from them.
Amanda (back pain, joint pains, and sleep issues): I have been suffering from extreme back pain and joint pain for ages. The pain had been keeping me awake most nights. However, I remember when I first started taking CBD. Incidentally, it was of this brand. I had used two of their products. I soon realized that this is what I had been waiting for all my life. So when we were reviewing this brand, I volunteered for the testing. This product is very effective, easy to dose, and has absolutely no side effects. I loved the fact that it improves my sleep pattern and helps me wake up fresh and alert each morning.
Bob (anxiety, obesity, arthritis, and sleep issues): I wasn’t always fat. But work and bad lifestyle choices led me to gain weight. The doctor calls it morbid obesity. This has even led to further complications, like arthritis, anxiety, and sleep disorder. My doctor had tried, and so did I, to get myself back in good health. But everything failed…until I joined this team of CBD testers. CBDistillery’s products were my first trials and I didn’t regret it one bit. Thankfully, testing their tincture was my first trial. From Day 1, I could feel a slight change in my system, gradually growing in intensity. And soon enough, I felt my pains reduce, I was sleeping better, and felt little urge to eat at odd hours. It sort of regulated my body and mind in a way that I started eating and sleeping well and waking up fresh each morning. I even started taking walks in the mornings, something I hadn’t done in 30 years. I felt good and noticed my health improve. I did manage to reduce 10 kilos in a matter of one month. This brand of CBD made me wonder why I didn’t try CBD earlier.
CBDistilliery’s Full-Spectrum CBD Softgels (30mg; 60-Count)
CBDistillery’scapsules are available in 30-count and 60-count bottles, each of which is available in different variants of potencies and extract types. The brand even has a vegan variant.
- 30-count bottles:
- 25mg full-spectrum CBD per vegan (pill) capsule (750mg)
- 30mg full-spectrum CBD per gelatin softgel capsule (900mg)
- 30mg CBD isolate per gelatin softgel capsule (900mg)
- 60-count bottles:
- 30mg full-spectrum CBD per gelatin softgel capsule (1800mg)
- 30mg CBD isolate per gelatin softgel capsule (1800mg)
We chose the “30mg full-spectrum CBD per gelatin softgel capsule (1800mg)” option to maintain the dosage of 30mg per serving for our trials. Admittedly, CBD’s bioavailability reduces and so does its effectiveness, when it goes through the digestive system, where a substantial amount of wastage takes place as well. Nonetheless, this is usually the optimal dose to start off on CBD with most users.
Ways of Consumption
Consuming CBD in the form of capsules is the most convenient way of using this natural chemical compound. Simply gulp it down with a glass of water. Alternatively, you can empty the contents of the capsules into your food or milkshake.
While the brand recommends all its consumers to start low and go slow, you must start with an optimal dose that can be calculated on any CBD calculator. These calculators give you an estimated dose to start with according to your:
- Pre-existing condition
- Severity of condition
- Intended effect
- Age group
- Individual metabolism rate
- Individual endocannabinoid system
- Internal chemical balance within the user’s body
Just like its tinctures, the brand’s “Full Spectrum CBD Softgels – 30mg – 60 Count” is tested regularly by ProVerde Laboratories. The lab test report contains only the cannabinoid profile. Purchase a product to get the full report (that includes the safety profiles) for your particular product, as per its Lot Number. For it, simply scan the QR code on the label of the product and fetch the detailed report.
Amanda (back pain, joint pains, and sleep issues): I was aware that the capsules may take a while longer to have an effect, but the actual effects were the same – thanks to CBDistillery’s unique formulation. The pains were all gone within a few days, and I realized I was sleeping much better. Since I already knew my necessary dosage, I had no difficulty in using these capsules. I took two each day since the effects wear off sooner than the tinctures (as there is a bit of wastage through this method of administering). Nonetheless, I loved the effect it had on my body – and mind. I felt calm, got good sleep, and my pains were usually much more manageable and often non-existent.
Bob (anxiety, obesity, arthritis, and sleep issues): CBDistillery’scapsules helped me a lot. I realized I could use tinctures when the pains were too much, and use these capsules on a daily basis to keep the pains at bay. Soon, I realized that I no longer needed any other medication to get better. My arthritis pains had reduced drastically, I was sleeping better, the swellings were gradually diminishing, and I felt no anxiety at all. I realized that most of my anxiety stemmed from my health issues. Ever since I started using the capsules (along with the occasional use of tinctures), my weight reduced substantially. I said my goodbyes to all conventional pain killers and heavy exercise equipment that gave me more pain than any real benefit.
CBDistillery’s CBDol Topical CBD Salve & CBDol Relief Stick (both 500mg)
The brand has four types of CBD topicals – CBDol Topical CBD Salve (full-spectrum) (500mg), CBD Lip Balm (25mg), CBDefineSkin Care Cream (500mg), and CBDol Relief Stick (broad-spectrum) (500mg) – each with its special benefits.
Since our users are mostly suffering from pains and inflammations, we chose to go with the CBDol Topical (full-spectrum) CBD Salve (500mg)and the CBDol(broad-spectrum) Relief Stick (500mg).
Ways of Consumption
Like all topicals, the salve and relief stick are both to be applied directly on the surface of the skin to have its effect. It does not enter the bloodstream. It percolates through the epidermis and reaches the targeted muscles and joints to have an impact. While the salve is applied like any other cream, the roller stick is a more convenient way of applying – simply roll it on!
Simply put – use as desired! Your first few applications would let you know how much you require. While we used the full-spectrum salve, if you have issues with THC, you can opt for the broad-spectrum roll-on stick. Both have the same potency and effect, as far its CBD content is concerned.
CBDistilliery’s salve is tested by ProVerdeLaboratories, its roll-on relief stick is tested by ACS Laboratory. While the former posts only the cannabinoid profile on the brand site, the latter posts the entire lab report on the website.
Salve: $50.00; $0.1/mg
Relief Stick: $40.00; $0.08/mg [tad bit cheaper than the full-spectrum salve, and for obvious reasons, as you’ll find out in our experience section below]
Amanda (used the full-spectrum salve for back pain, joint pains):I used this cream early in the morning and after I returned from work. It felt nice and comfortable using it. It wasn’t sticky and did not stain my clothes.
On the contrary, its essential oils helped me heal quickly, thus numbing the pain and inflammation on my back and knees, and keeping the surface of my skin nice and supple.
This, I used for an entire week, before realizing that I needn’t use it so often. I could simply use it on days when the pain is unbearable or days when I don’t get the necessary rest or breaks from work through the day. The effects were pretty quick and the cream felt nice to the touch. Not only did it not affect my skin in a bad way, it actually made my skin softer than it was before.
Bob (used the broad-spectrum relief stick for arthritis): I used this relief stick on my hands and arms where the effects of arthritis were most prominent.
It took a while, but the effects came surely as I expected. Initially, the effects weren’t that noticeable. The inflammation didn’t subside immediately. In fact, it took over a week for the swellings on my hands and fingers to reduce. However, its effect on the pain was a different story. Within less than an hour, I could feel the pain was almost gone. Although there was a bit of discomfort and a strange feeling in my hands when I tried moving them (in ways other than typing, which is generally what I do all day long), it did not hurt like it usually does. Besides, it’s easy to apply and carry around everywhere. The cooling effect of menthol was also a nice touch, both to my healing process as well as the refreshing of menthol. Overall, it was a nice experience.
Q: Can CBDistillierymake a user “high”?
A: No. While the brand sells isolates and THC-free broad-spectrum variants among its different product lines, the brand’s full-spectrum variants contain less than 0.3% THC, which won’t make you high, unless you consume a whole lot of it – which should, in any case, be of no use to the body; you won’t get all well in a day! CBD is not a miracle drug. It gradually changes your body’s chemistry to help you deal with different conditions better in a natural way.
Q: Are the ingredients of CBDistillery products safe for all?
A: Unless a user is allergic to coconut oil, there are no other ingredients in any of their products that can make you high. For users with coconut allergy, they can try the variants that don’t contain coconut oil (MCT).
Q: Can a user fail a drug test after using CBDistillery?
Generally speaking, NO! However, if you take it in very high doses right before you take the drug test, you may test positive, as the THC level in your body may be a little higher than the permissible levels at that time.
Q: Are CBDistillery’s products lab-tested?
A: Absolutely. All of CBDistilliery’s products are tested by third-party or independent laboratories, the results of which are posted openly on the brand site for all users to check out before making an informed decision. The brand regularly gets their products checked by these labs. In fact, all their lots of products of every type of product is checked for cannabinoid and contaminant contents regularly to make sure they are giving users the best quality, most effective, and the safest of products.
Q: Are there any specific serving proportions for CBDistillery products?
Like with any other CBD product, CBDistillery’s products need to be micro-dosed. That is to say, start low, go slow. The brand lets you know how much CBD is contained in which product so that you can decide on how many caps or drops to use.
Q: Can I track my order placed with CBDistilliery?
A: Yes. As soon as your order is shipped by the company, you will get your UPS tracking number on your registered email address. Please remember, it usually takes around 5-7 days for your order to be processed. So place your order well in advance.
