Charlotte’s Web is the world’s largest CBD company. They created the Charlotte’s Web hemp strain, which comes with real research for its unique cannabinoid combination. I’ve tested many of their products, which typically contain more CBD than advertised: quite a bit more.
The cost is 3.8 cents per milligram of CBD. However, the labs found that this came with about 50% more cannabinoids and we can’t guarantee that every product will test this way. According to Charlotte’s Web’s claims and price, this cream costs 5.3 cents per cannabinoid.
The scent is natural and I smell some ginger. It doesn’t smell great. However, the pungent hemp smell is typical among natural hemp extracts. You don’t necessarily smell the hemp after a few minutes, but a floral smell mixed with ginger does linger. This cream has many natural ingredients and smells the way most potent hemp extracts smell.
This is a potent dose of CBD at 14.5 mg per gram. A gram is about a milliliter. The 0.35 mg of THC, nearly 0.50 mg of CBC, and trace amounts of other cannabinoids may increase CBD’s effects. The cannabinoids in here make this is a well-rounded full-spectrum cream. This cream came with about 50% more cannabinoids than the label claims, and that’s a lot. Charlotte’s Web typically runs hot, but I wouldn’t expect to get this much extra every time.
CBD dosing is highly individualized. There’s not enough topical-CBD research to suggest a dose. As usual, I don’t talk about my reaction to CBD because it can be misleading. CBD effects are based on your unique health conditions, tolerances, and endocannabinoid system. Look for products with similar cannabinoid levels when you find one that works.
The cream is brown. It’s doesn’t look appealing. It leaves a slight brown tint on your skin that seems to go away after a few minutes. However, you can still feel the residue of the cream long after. It’s not quite sticky, but I still feel it after an hour. The bottle is exceptionally nice, with foil, raised shiny text on top of a soothing blue image of the Colorado mountains.
Charlotte’s Web is one of my favorite brands because they pushed the CBD industry into a place where you’re now able to read about legal CBD products here. I am fan of the brand but not this cream. I don’t particularly appreciate that the labs found over 50% more CBD. I wouldn’t say I like the brown look, the residue feel, or the smell. However, this is a good buy if you want a potent full-spectrum hemp cream that is natural and from a company that pushed the CBD industry forward.
