After a couple of weeks off, hence the informational content I’ve been posting recently rather than reviews, I’m getting stuck straight back into it and starting it off with an amazing product I’m really excited to introduce to you.
This is the strongest CBD oil by the Finnish-Estonian brand Organia, run by three pals Rauno, Ahti and Miika.
How Strong Is Strong?
The product I’ve been sent is a 3,000mg CBD tincture, which is quite a bit higher than your average CBD oil (most being between 500-1500mg).
They do of course stock a 500mg, 1,000mg and a 1,500mg if you require something lighter, but I’m delighted to be testing out the strongest product in the range.
I have tested a few 3,000mg CBD oil’s out, but a number of them are from US brands who place them in a 30ml tincture, meaning 10% concentration and a smaller amount of CBD per drop.
However, this is a 10ml dropper, meaning it is 30% CBD, while each and every drop contains a whopping 15mg of CBD.
Of course, this does also mean you have to be careful with how many you drop in your mouth, as it adds up quickly. The FSA recommends going no higher than 70mg in a day, while 4 drops is 60mg, so try to keep that as your max.
You don’t have to take it all at once however, I took a drop in the morning during testing, while ploughing through my work and running presentations, before taking another couple of drops an hour before bed, so I can drift off easily.
How Does It Come Packaged?
Whereas most CBD oil’s I’m sent come relatively loosely, with a tincture covered in bubble wrap or simply packaged up in the cushioned envelope, this product came with a fitted box, to ensure it arrives in good condition.
This may prove especially useful if you’re ordering from abroad, myself included, as I’m based in the UK and the brand is in Estonia, so having the box helps to ensure no damage is done in transit, while it’s also useful for storing the oil between consumption.
Inside the box, you will also find a small bit of paper, containing some key information about the brand, as well as a QR code, which takes you through to a dosing guide, which may prove very useful if you’re new to CBD and don’t know how much to take for you.
So Is This Actually Full Spectrum?
Yes, or as close as we can get in the EU (with legal limits on THC levels). Sadly, a huge number of CBD brands state ‘full spectrum’ or ‘broad spectrum’, yet when you check the lab reports, they seem to purely have CBD and no other cannabinoids present, making it an isolate.
The lab report can be found on the Organia website on the product page, under ‘third-party lab test results’, where currently you will see both batches. You can find the batch code on the back of your CBD oil, which you want to match up with the lab report, for a more accurate data profile.
It should be highlighted that if you would prefer a CBD oil that is free from THC, but also has all those other great cannabinoids present, then you may want to opt for their broad spectrum CBD oil, available in 500mg or 1,000mg.
Where Does The Hemp Come From?
Being sold within the EU, the CBD must come from industrial hemp grown within the EU, while they are utilising hemp grown organically in Croatia.
They use supercritical CO2 extraction in order to extract the CBD from the raw plant, which is the best CBD extraction method currently in place.
They also use medium chain triglycerides as their carrier oil, again my favourite from the available options, helping to increase bioavailability after consumption.
Who Are The People Behind The Product?
Organia was started by three friends who were already taking CBD oil at the time and wanted to prepare their own high concentration full spectrum oil to introduce to the world.
Miika Peura was working as a fund manager, Ahti Kiili was a property developer and Rauno Kutti was a digital marketing expert, so they all gave up some great jobs to chase their real ambition and setup a business together.
They started off by cracking the areas they knew, Finland, Estonia and Latvia, while now they are starting to stretch out and reach a greater audience across Europe.
