Formulation strength is where you'll notice the biggest misalignment between price point and customer interest. You'll find companies offering 2000 mg or 3000 mg formulas. Not many people are buying these. Instead, they choose formulations that are less potent, less expensive, yet still effective. For most retailers, it makes sense to focus in on these products.

I’ve been using their natural oil for about a week now, and I thoroughly enjoy it. Recently, however, I got my wife a small bottle of their mint flavored CBD oil, and she loves it. She never cared for the natural hemp taste. For those of you who are interested, it also comes in a citrus flavor. I had the opportunity to sample that once and was not disappointed.
In short, CBD oils made from hemp must contain less than 0.3% THC – this is below the legal federal limit (and is why many CBD oil companies claim to be able to ‘legally ship to all 50 U.S. states’). In contrast, cannabis CBD oils (that you’d find in places like medical marijuana dispensaries) may have a much higher THC content, given that they are made from marijuana rather than hemp.
Great article! Excellent point by Matt, precisely why I found this article. I would just add that the CBD percentage in the extract can be significantly lower than even the 20%, but its probably fair to use that to give a rough idea how much CBD might be in an Amazon product, so divide the claimed percentage by 5!. Claims of up to 60% on Amazon are totally ludicrous, any concentration above 20% CBD become darker very viscous and the CBD starts to crystalize in the bottle! You would need to heat the bottle (which can damage the properties of the carrier oil) to re-liquidize! Also beware of Amazon reviews which are notorious for being fake. As author suggests, contact seller for full data sheets or seek a reputable supplier elsewhere that gives full transparency of information up front.
