Which Charlotte’s Web CBD Oil is Right for Me?

The Charlotte’s Web product line consists of 4 full spectrum oils, 1 isolate oil, 3 options of gummies, 2 options of capsules, 2 topicals, drops for dogs and 2 options of dog chews. All of their products are now CO2 extracted, with the exception of the Original Formula (50 mg) product. The Original Formula oil still uses the original IPA extraction process.

While all of their products use the same source, you may see some differences between the Original Formula (50 mg) and the rest of the line (7 mg, 17 mg and 60 mg) due to the different extraction processes. The 7 mg, 17 mg and 60 mg tinctures can generally be thought of as the exact same products, just with increasing degrees of concentrated, full spectrum hemp extract infused in them.

If you haven’t used CBD before, the 17 mg tincture is a good choice to start with. It’s lower in potency than the 50 mg or 60 mg options, but it is an affordable way to try the Charlotte’s Web product to see if it works well for you. 

One benefit of buying the higher-potency products is a lower cost per milligram. Another benefit is that you can take less oil to get the same dose. For example, you would need to consume 2 milliliters (dropperfuls) of the 17 mg tincture to get 34 milligrams of CBD whereas you would only need to consume 0.5 milliliters (or a half of a dropperful) of the 60 mg tincture to get 30 milligrams of CBD.

Do Charlotte’s Web Products Contain CBD?

Charlotte’s Web products are labeled as “hemp extract.” As a result, people are sometimes unsure as to whether CW products contain CBD. Rest assured, Charlotte’s Web products do indeed contain CBD! It’s not uncommon for brands to say hemp extract on their labels for regulatory reasons.
