Since inception, we’ve preached the benefits of not shopping CBD products by the number of milligrams it contains. Buying high quality, full spectrum hemp extracts mean that you’re buying more than just CBD. Let’s take a look at the two most popular Charlotte’s Web full spectrum CBD oils: 50mg Original formula and 60mg/ml. Let’s compare the differences between the two and understand why more than the CBD content matters.
The Original Formula provides a minimum of 50mg/ml of CBD, whereas the 60mg contains a minimum of 60mg CBD per ml. These two products are the highest strength products available at Charlotte’s Web.
You may think these CBD percentages are low in comparison to other products on the market. While CBD content is an important factor, it is only one contributing factor to the effectiveness of a CBD product. Higher quality full spectrum CBD oils like Charlotte’s Web possess more than just CBD. They possess a variety of naturally occurring hemp compounds that contribute to beneficial synergistic effects for the user. With higher quality products, a lower dosage of CBD is usually required due to this combination of hemp compounds, known as the Entourage Effect.
Although the CBD content is relatively similar in Charlotte’s Web 50mg and 60mg CBD Oil, they are extracted using different methods.
The Original 50mg formula is made using labour-intensive, small-batch alcohol extraction. This full spectrum CBD oil was Charlotte’s Web product that is widely acclaimed to have started the global CBD industry and created waves across the world. This full spectrum hemp extract retains an earthy, hemp taste with it, even when combined with the two flavour profiles available, mint chocolate and olive oil. The flavour isn’t for everyone due to the subtle hemp flavour. However, if you want Mother Nature’s hemp in its purest and highest quality form, this product is for you.
The 60mg formula is made in larger batches using carbon dioxide (CO2) extraction. This extraction method is common across the modern-day hemp industry due to its production efficiency. The result is a similar product profile to the 50mg, except for a softer and smoother flavour profile. The hemp flavour is significantly reduced, making it great for those who have a fussier taste profile. For those starting their CBD routine, a CO2 extracted oil is usually a good place to start.
Why are different extraction methods used for Charlotte’s Web products?
When Charlotte’s Web was founded, the pioneering product was the Original Formula (50mg/ml). This formula changed the world and created a waiting list of thousands of people in Colorado. In fact, families from all over the world travelled to Colorado to try and get their hands on the Original Formula. To this day, thousands of people across the globe rely on this formulation for a wide variety of applications. This formula is the heart and soul of Charlotte’s Web.
Charlotte’s Web CO2-extracted range of full spectrum CBD oils was developed with efficiency and taste in mind. Aside from the Original Formula (50mg), all products are made with CO2-extract hemp extract as they offer the ability to produce larger batches to meet the high demand for Charlotte’s Web products. They also don’t retain as much of the natural hemp flavour as the alcohol-extracted Original Formula.
Which Charlotte’s Web extraction method is right for me?
Both full spectrum hemp extracts from Charlotte’s Web can help to support a range of lifestyle and well-being goals. The difference in production methods offers you a variety of the highest quality product so that you can find the right product for your individual wellness needs.
