The CBD industry is rising faster than cryptocurrencies during a bull run, and is a lot more stable! BDS Analytics and ArcView Market Research’s latest report suggests that CBD will be worth more than $20 billion by 2024. Cowen & Co., a New York-based investment bank, was more pessimistic by stating the industry would only be worth $15 billion by 2025.
Even if the latter figure is true, it isn’t exactly bad news for industry leaders such as Premium Jane, Pure Kana, and Provocan. CBD consumers are becoming ever more educated, and we aim to help their research by informing them of the best – and worst – CBD sellers on the market. Today, we look at CBDistillery, a relative ‘old hand’ in the CBD market!

Who is CBDistillery?
The company was founded by a group of Colorado natives who firmly believe that consumers deserve access to the highest quality hemp derived CBD products. CBDistillery has even created its own slogan, #CBDMOVEMENT, as a means of increasing the public’s knowledge of cannabidiol and hemp.
At the time of writing, CBDistillery’s products have hit the mainstream; and are now available in a whopping 1,500 retailers across the United States. The brand has featured in publications and media outlets such as CNN, PopSugar, and USA Today. It was also voted as the #1 Value Brand in 2019 by Mashable.
CBDistillery was co-founded by Lincoln Sorenson and Andy Papilion, who now work as the CRO and COO respectively. Chase Terwilliger is the CEO while Chuck McKenney is the Chairman of the Board.
All of the brand’s products are made from pesticide-free, Non-GMO industrial hemp grown organically under natural sunlight. The company offers full-spectrum and CBD isolate products. Also, you can click on the images of each product to see results from third-party lab testing. A quick look at the 1,000mg THC free CBD oil revealed that it was tested by Botanacor Services and contained 34.7mg of CBD per ml, slightly higher than the 33.3mg claimed by the company.
Review of CBDistillery Full Spectrum CBD Tincture
There are several CBD tincture options in a variety of sizes and strengths. The last time I checked on the site, over a year ago, it had an annoying structure where the sizes of the oils were not placed in order. Sadly, this has not changed.
Full-Spectrum CBD Oil
- 250mg: $20
- 500mg: $35
- 1000mg: $60
- 2500mg: $130
- 5000mg: $240
All of the oil strengths come in a 30ml bottle. Therefore, the 5,000mg bottle contains a substantial 166.66mg of CBD per ml. The dropper that comes with the bottle holds up to 1ml, and the strongest CBD tincture is ideal if you have chronic pain. If you want a lower dose, either use a fraction of the dropper or purchase one of the smaller sizes. The 250mg bottle can serve as an introduction to the world of CBD.
THC Free Pure CBD Oil Tincture
Once again, you have the choice of five sizes, and the bottle contains 30ml of liquid in each case.
- 250mg: $19
- 500mg: $32
- 1000mg: $55
- 2500mg: $120
- 5000mg: $210
The THC-free oil is a little cheaper because you don’t get the benefit of several cannabinoids. The oil is extracted from aerial plant parts and is completely free of the psychoactive compound, THC. It offers a natural plant taste with no danger of attaining a high. Although CBDistillery can’t make any guarantees, this product could be useful if you are worried about failing a marijuana drug screen.
CBD Pet Tincture
This CBD tincture is specifically designed for pets and is available in two sizes:
- 150mg: $20
- 600mg: $38
As you can see, the 600mg option is far better value for money. This oil is different from what is consumed by humans because it is formulated using cold-pressed hemp seed oil. As a result, your cat or dog should be able to consume it safely.
Regardless of the reason for using the CBD oil, you can consume it as follows: Either add it to a drink or hold a few drops under your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing. The amount you need depends entirely on what you’re using the CBD to treat.
Review of CBDistillery Isolate
When it comes to the famed CBD isolate sold by CBDistillery, you have two options.
99+% Pure CBD Isolate Powder (Crystalline) From Hemp
This product is derived naturally from industrial hemp oil extracted from the stems and stalks of the hemp plant. It is available in five sizes:
- 5 Grams: $15
- 1 Gram: $30
- 5 Grams: $105
- 7 Grams: $192.50
- 14 Grams: $378
As the name suggests, you get over 99% CBD when using this powder. Therefore, a single gram contains over 990 grams of CBD for just $30! The beauty of this product is its versatility. You can try and eat it straight, add it to MCT oil for a homemade tincture, or mix it with oil and vape it. Once again, the amount you need, along with the manner of use, depends on what you’re using CBD for.
If you’re looking for new and innovative ways to use CBD, this isolate powder is ideal! Users have found that it works extremely well when you vape it, but obviously, you will need to tinker with the formula to find the right strength. Users have also expressed amazement at the rapid effect the powder had when it was placed under the tongue and consumed. The taste is intense, and you should feel the difference pretty quickly.
Perhaps the best way to use the powder is to mix it with some MCT oil (coconut oil is always a good choice) and dissolve the solution, so you have a nice, potent tincture. In fact, an increasing number of users are utilizing this product as a backup tincture, and at $30 a gram (less in bulk), it represents excellent value for money. The one downside is that the powder can have a sedative effect, so don’t use it before any strenuous activity.
CBDelicious 99%+ Formulation Powder from Hemp
This is an innovative product which is designed to be used as an ingredient. Whether you want to add it to a smoothie or use it when baking a cake, it is possible to include hundreds of mg of CBD easily. At present, it is only available in one size: 1 gram for $28. Once again, this product is comprised of at least 99% CBD. It is also free from THC.
What About CBDistillery’s Other Products?
This brand is determined to provide customers with CBD in as many forms as possible. As a result, it sells five types of softgel and capsule:
- Full-Spectrum CBD Infused Softgels: 30 x 30mg of CBD for $60.
- Full-Spectrum CBD Softgel Capsules: 60 x 30mg for $115
- CBD Pill Capsules:30 x 25mg for $50
- CBD Isolate Softgels: 60 x 30mg for $115
- THC-Free CBD Isolate Infused Softgels: 30 x 30mg for $6
The primary difference between softgels and capsules is that the latter has two pieces that fit together while the former is a thin shell containing liquid. The isolates have nothing but CBD, while the full-spectrum offerings include other cannabinoids and terpenes.
There is no letup in the variety when it comes to topical options. There is a Pure CBD topical patch which contains 40mg of CBD for $10. To use, simply place it on a specific part of the body and benefit from the slow release of CBD. The patch can last up to 36 hours, according to CBDistillery.
It is 2” x 2” in size which allows for discreet use, although it would be nice to have a larger option. There is a 5-pack of patches for $45. Here are the other CBD topical products on offer:
- CBDol Topical Salve: 500mg of CBD for $50
- CBD Lip Balm: 25mg for $9
- CBDefine Skin Care Cream: 500mg for $50
The topical salve, in particular, has the potential to make your skin feel refreshed. It includes ingredients such as peppermint, eucalyptus, and lavender to provide a soothing and cooling sensation.
CBDistillery sells fruity gummies in two forms. First comes the standard 30 x 30mg CBD gummies for $60, then there is a special CBD night time gummies option which is the same price but includes melatonin to calm you down before bedtime.
These pens are designed to be used right out of the box. Simply inhale to operate! Thankfully, these pens are free of MCT, PG, and VG. Users say they get a smooth and relaxing vaping experience, and when you are finished, simply recycle the pen and purchase a new one. There are also 3-packs and 4-packs on offer which can save you a little money.
Where Can I Purchase CBDistillery Products?
You will find all the products on CBDistillery’s shop page. You will need to scroll down to find the different tincture oil strengths, but at least the website itself is well designed and professional looking.
You can also check out the company’s wholesale page if you wish to sell any of its products. The brand claims to have shipped over 5 million units across the world since its formation in 2015.
Once your payment has been processed, packages are shipped out within 48 hours. Standard delivery time is 3-7 business days, but you can get your order in 2-3 business days if you pay extra for USPS Priority Shipping. You are entitled to FREE shipping if you spend over $75 on your order, but only after discounts are taken into account. Otherwise, the shipping cost is $8.
Please note that CBDistillery does not accept cancellations made during the holidays from Black Friday to New Year’s Day. Otherwise, you can return an unopened and unused package within 7 days of receiving it.
Final Thoughts on CBDistillery
CBDistillery has been around for a considerable time, and it keeps on expanding. It offers a wide variety of CBD products, including THC-free, full-spectrum, and CBD isolate items. The price point is also reasonable, and there is no question that the brand is reputable.
We have read a few troubling reviews from customers who suggest the quality of the service has dwindled in recent times. It is a real pain when you find out that you are unable to return a product during busy seasonal periods. It is also a bit odd that there is no contact number for American customers on the Contact Us page, but there is one for UK customers!
Overall, reviews are mixed, and while we were happy enough with the quality of products and delivery, a growing number of people are not. If CBDistillery wishes to keep up with the top dogs of the CBD industry, it needs to up its level of customer service based on what we have read.
- A huge array of products.
- The CBD isolate slabs are excellent value.
- Free shipping if you spend $75+ after discounts have been applied.
- Third-party lab testing.
- A growing number of negative customer reviews.
- Customers have issues canceling orders or returning products at specific times of the year.
