Social CBD is a rebrand of Select CBD. Select CBD is part of one of the largest medicinal marijuana companies. The new Social CBD spinoff was said to distance this pure CBD line from medical marijuana or THC products. I lab-tested a pure CBD product by Select CBD back in 2019 and it received an A rating. Social CBD is based in Portland, Oregon.
The cost is about 9 cents per milligram of CBD. It’s ok. I’ve seen cheaper. CBD is the cheapest cannabinoid to produce and this product is pretty much just CBD. Fifteen cents was the average price per mg of CBD back in 2019. However, prices are coming down and this might be close to the average cost of CBD now. I’ll have an update of 2020 CBD prices coming soon.
The vanilla mint flavor is excellent. This mint portion tastes like Altoids or a strong after-dinner mint. The vanilla is more delicate, like a vanilla note that you find in a wine. It also has a hint of tobacco aroma, not actual tobacco, but the scent that you might also find in a wine. There is zero hemp taste. There’s nothing earthy or nasty about this CBD. The consistency is of a light MCT oil, which is ideal. This CBD tastes fantastic.
25 mg of CBD is a good size dose. It’s pretty much just CBD. The trace levels of other cannabinoids are likely too low to add benefits to this “broad spectrum” CBD. The trace levels of THC found by Lab B were not found by Lab A and were below the level of quantitation of Lab B. In other words, Lab B detected THC but the levels were so low that they can’t accurately report those levels and many labs would consider those trace levels undetectable or THC free. While the lab findings suggest that THC won’t be an issue, I never recommend full-spectrum or broad-spectrum hemp extracts to anyone who needs to take THC drug tests. 25 milligrams of CBD is potent, but because it’s pretty much just CBD, it could be suitable for a new user or someone who wants to step up from a 5 mg, 10 mg, or 15 mg CBD dose.
Social CBD is ok. The company is enormous and sold everywhere. The packaging looks clean and professional, the bottle is excellent, and the dropper is labeled. The price seems average. The taste is fantastic, but that’s what I would expect from a CBD oil that has almost no other cannabinoids. This is a broad-spectrum CBD, which should have other cannabinoids. However, I find that most broad-spectrum CBD products don’t contain substantial amounts of rare cannabinoids. I don’t recommend broad-spectrums for people who do drug testing because rare cannabinoids may give a false positive on a drug test. Also, many broad-spectrum extracts come with trace levels of THC. I would view this as an excellent tasting CBD oil, that’s pretty much just CBD oil, at an average cost.
