CBD is fast becoming one of the most popular alternative medicine options in the world. It is the most abundant non-psychoactive compound in cannabis and is also found in large amounts in industrial hemp. Significantly, the latter is now legal to grow across the United States; a fact that is sure to give the CBD industry an enormous boost.
It is already a multi-billion-dollar market with thousands of vendors, which means it isn’t always easy to determine whether a company is on the level or selling you rubbish. Our reviews are designed to help you spend your money on quality CBD. Today, we turn our scrutiny to Blue Moon Hemp.
Who is Blue Moon Hemp?
Blue Moon Hemp was formed in 2015, and by September 2018 the company had already sold one million bottles of CBD oil, made from a single genetic strain grown in Kentucky. Blue Moon Hemp’s CEO, David Fleischer, was delighted to pick up first prize in Leafwire’s Future of Cannabis Pitch Content. The event took place in Miami in late 2018, and each entrant had three minutes to pitch their products and an additional three minutes to answer a Q&A.
As CBD is not FDA-approved as a form of medical treatment, Blue Moon Hemp has wisely labeled their products as ‘wellness’ supplements. All of its CBD products contain 0% THC, and eco-friendly and sustainable farming methods are utilized. Blue Moon Hemp also claims to provide a ‘plant only’ product with no artificial ingredients or additives, with a special formulation technique used with non-GMO, organic products.
Review of Blue Moon Hemp CBD Tinctures
Blue Moon’s ‘Tru Blu’ CBD tinctures come in natural, peppermint and berry flavor. You also have six strength options to consider:
- 100mg: $19
- 250mg: $39
- 500mg: $69
- 1000mg: $129
- 2000mg: $189
- 3000mg: $259
We don’t often see 3000mg CBD options, so it was refreshing to find that Blue Moon Hemp has a ‘supersized’ bottle! All of the bottles contain 30ml liquid, so the 3000mg version is an incredible 30 times stronger than the 100mg version. In fact, a 1ml dropper of the strongest bottle is equivalent to an entire 100mg bottle!
This CBD tincture consists of cold-pressed hemp oil, and Blue Moon uses high-speed emulsion and nano-technology to ensure the greatest level of bio-availability. I used the berry flavored 100mg bottle and was happy with the sweet taste. However, I would recommend the natural tasting option if you like the taste of hemp, or simply consume too many sweet things during the course of the day.
It did a reasonable job of handling my anxiety as I felt less stressed once I used 20mg of CBD per day. It isn’t easy to explain the sensation because it doesn’t hit you like a jackhammer. You ‘feel’ better after using it for a few days but don’t notice until the lack of mood downswings causes you to pause and think “I feel good today.”
Review of Blue Moon Hemp CBD Gummies
Once again, you have several options, including special CBD gummies with melatonin to help you sleep. Here is a quick list of prices:
- 4-Pack of Gummies (10mg CBD each): $9
- 10-Pack of Gummies (10mg CBD each): $19
- 4-Pack of Gummies (25mg CBD each): $19
- 10-Pack of Gummies (25mg CBD each): $29
- 4-Pack of Gummies with Melatonin (15mg CBD each): $13
- 10-Pack of Gummies with Melatonin (15mg CBD each): $25
For the standard of CBD edibles, the 10-pack with 25mg of CBD apiece is decent value at $29. Each pack contains gummies in Blue Raspberry and Passion Fruit flavoring which tastes great. The 25mg gummies helped relieve a bit of stress, and the melatonin option is a nice sleep aid. Take one around 30-45 minutes before going to bed, read a book, and you’ll find yourself gently easing off to sleep.
Review of Blue Moon Hemp CBD & Hemp Vape E-Liquids
This section of the review is for readers with vaporizers or another form of vaping device. There is a total of five CBD flavors: Red Devil, Pure, Black Kat, Kush, and Flan. There are also five strength options:
- 100mg: $29
- 200mg: $49
- 300mg: $59
- 400mg: $69
- 1000mg: $129
This e-liquid is a whole plant extract, which means there are over 60 cannabinoids and 400 phytonutrients in each bottle. There is a total of 30ml of liquid so be sure to calculate your dosage before trying it. The only ingredients are plant-only vegetative glycerin and bio-based propylene glycol (70/30).
I tried the Red Devil flavor which is supposedly a blend of vanilla, strawberry, tangerine, and mango. It is a fruity mixture which may not be to the taste of some. It worked well with my vape pen, and I soon felt nice and relaxed.
What About Blue Moon Hemp’s Other Products?
There is a lot to choose from; so much in fact that I didn’t get close to trying everything. Options include:
- CBD & Hemp Oil E-Blunts
- CBD & Hemp Oil Pod Systems
- CBD Pet Tinctures
- CBD Salves
- CBD Shatters
- CBD Holiday Bundles
The holiday bundle is called a ‘V-Day’ package and includes a 2oz tub of Limonene salves and a bottle of 200mg Red Devil e-liquid. The CBD Salve is a cream which you need to rub on any painful areas. I did not get the chance to try it out, but according to customer reviews, the Eucalyptus option is extremely pleasant because of its cool scent.
Options range from 1oz for $25 to 4oz for $69. There is 125 mg of CBD per ounce of salve. Blue Moon’s CBD Shatter contains 99.6% CBD and ranges from 0.5 grams for $39 to 1 gram for $69. In essence, you receive 996 mg of CBD for just $69! I recommend using it as an e-liquid because it works out being far cheaper!
Where Can I Purchase Blue Moon Hemp Products?
As always, I can only recommend buying it from the official Blue Moon Hemp website. If you are not happy with your purchase, you can get a full refund by returning the product(s) in question with the contents intact and unused. Unfortunately, it is NOT a money back guarantee because the item(s) must be unopened, and all refunds are at the company’s discretion.
Final Thoughts on Blue Moon Hemp
It is important to remember that CBD does not work the same for everybody. Depending on your medical condition, general health, and physical size, you may need significantly more or less CBD to feel an effect. When using the tinctures, make sure you hold the oil beneath your tongue for at least 30 seconds before swallowing.
Overall, Blue Moon Hemp makes high-quality CBD products which are available for an affordable price. The fruity flavors of some items might be too much for some consumers but generally speaking, they taste good and work well, which is all you really want.
Blue Moon Hemp Pros
- CBD tinctures are easy to swallow and effective.
- The e-liquid offers a smooth vaping experience.

Blue Moon Hemp Cons
