If there’s anything to be said for certain about CBD products it’s this: the market is supersaturated with them. Ever since the FDA passed the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (also known as the Farm Bill), legalizing CBD derived from hemp, companies all over have been trying to profit from the hype. So, how much should CBD oil cost?
First time users are always curious if they’re overpaying, underpaying, or hitting that sweet spot of market value. Here are three ways to judge how much your CBD oil should cost:
How Much Are You Paying Per Mg of CBD?
Most companies charge 8 to 17 cents per mg of CBD oil, which is 10 to 25 times the cost of making the product. If you are paying more than 5 cents per mg you are paying too much.
How Long Will It Last?
Most people think a product is fairly priced without doing the math. When you go to the grocery store and compare products, something might be cheaper but in actuality it has a higher price per unit. The same goes with CBD oil. Cents per milligram is critical.
Rational Hemp Full Spectrum CBD Oil aims to be high quality, affordable, and effective. Generally with CBD oils, bottles run 1 ounce (30ml) and the droppers are 1ml. Second, mg (milligrams) refers to the CBD density in the oil solution. At under 4 cents per mg, in comparison to competitors who are priced at 8 to 17 cents per mg, our Rational Hemp bottles offer 2400mg in 30ml and last 2 to 4 months based on a typical dose of 20 to 40mg.

Is It Full Spectrum?
There are three key kinds of CBD oils— isolate, broad spectrum, and full spectrum. Isolate oils only contain CBD; full-spectrum oils contain nearly all of the natural compounds present in the cannabis plant (also known as cannabinoids), and broad spectrum is full spectrum without the THC.
Full spectrum oils create a synergistic effect in the body, delivering all the benefits of the hemp plant. Rational Hemp is a full-spectrum, pesticide free product that has terpenes and phytocannabinoids, meaning it delivers a full complement of benefits.
Is It High Quality? Is It Independently Lab Tested and Are the Results Prominently Displayed?
The market of CBD oil is just like any other market, consumer driven. But greed shouldn’t get in the way of consumer health or affect the quality of the CBD oil product itself.
CBD oils should come with a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that will reveal what’s in the product. Similar to going to a grocery store, check that the CBD oil is certified lab tested by a third party. Higher concentrations of CBD tend to be more expensive but that also makes them a better value. You’ll need less in your dropper each time, making the bottle last longer, like concentrated laundry detergent.
Now that the CBD industry is beginning to settle down, rather than upstaging itself with the latest ‘version, it’s time to take a look at what we actually need. Price should not affect quality and you should know exactly what you’re paying for.
