Nordic Oil 25mg CBD Capsules
First up, let’s start with the capsules. These capsules come in two options: a 10mg or 25mg of CBD strength. Today we’ll be reviewing the stronger of the options, which utilizes a very potent blend of CBD that uses a gentle CO2 extraction process. The white plastic bottle was wrapped up in a calming white and teal label which was relaxing to look at. One thing I liked about the label was the hemp plant design right on the front. Recreational merijuana is often portrayed (somewhat comically) as a green hemp plant with five or six leaves outspread. However, this portrayal showed the shape of the hemp plant as a sharply-pointed seven leaf plant, much more soothing and professional. The label also showed supplement facts and an ingredient list (Cannabidiol (CBD) from Full Spectrum Hemp Extract, Fractionated Coconut Oil (MCT), Soy Lecithin, Beta-Caryophyllene, Potassium Sorbate, Gelatin) on the right of the label and a suggested use and warning on the left side. The label states that each capsule is non-gmo, pesticide free, and third-party tested. Each bottle contains 60 capsules, each capsule containing 25mg of CBD, for a total of 1,500 mg of CBD per bottle.
After I’d finished checking out the packaging, I tore off the protective seal and unscrewed the child-proof cap. There was a wad of cotton (for freshness) that I had to remove before getting to the capsules, which was nice because not all companies provide that. I peered inside the bottle and was delighted to find that the capsules were gel! Nowhere on the bottle does it say gel capsules, which is why I was expecting a traditional clear capsule. The gel capsule was firm and extremely resistant to my rigorous squeezing; it refused to pop no matter how hard I pressed down on it and even retained its shape after a few seconds. Thanks to being a gel capsule, it was very easy to swallow and didn’t leave a bad aftertaste. It was packaged cleanly and professionally and I was impressed with the durability of the capsules. The only downside is that these capsules are fairly pricey: $119. With 60 capsules (roughly a two-month supply), that equals about $2 per capsule. But with each capsule containing such a high amount of CBD, this price may very well be worth it to those needed relief from anxiety, depression, PTSD, muscle soreness, joint aches, and so much more. Now that we’ve checked out the capsules, let’s move onto the tinctures!
