Eco Sciences Rix Mix 750mg CBD Oil Review
Some CBD companies like a flashy look, and some are no-nonsense. Eco Sciences comes across as a no-nonsense manufacturer that puts out a variety of products and a collection of excellent CBD articles in their blog. Our reviewers wanted to try something representative of the product line, and we selected something in their mid-range of potency, the 750 mg Rix Mix. The Rix Mix products are a full-spectrum, whole plant bulk concentrate. Rix Mix can be taken sub-lingually (under the tongue), added to an E-liquid, or vaped alone. Our reviewers used only the sub-lingual method. As an added benefit, there is CBD dosage information printed on the bottle.
Taste (7.3 out of 10)
For a CBD oil, this is a decent tasting one. You will still get the typical taste of hemp, but there is a strong citrus flavoring that dominates the hemp taste. We were left with an aftertaste that wasn’t terrible, but that lingered longer than one would hope. Relative to other CBD oils, this was not the smoothest we’ve tried.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
The Rix Mix has an eye dropper for dispensing the oil, which is the most common method for CBD oils. The fact that it is common doesn’t mean we like it, but we have learned to deal with pre-measuring our dosage and avoiding messy drips. If that’s the worst gripe we have about a product, that’s not bad! The citrus flavoring provides a nice aroma, and the oil is light, so that the delivery is pleasant enough.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
Now, we start to pick up steam with our review. This mid-range, 750 mg full-spectrum oil provides about 50 mg of CBD in a full dropper, so it’s easy to get a good dosage range without having to take multiple droppers-full. The strong taste we noted above is probably the result of the full-spectrum range of terpenes, cannabinoids, etc. that give this oil its potency.
Effect (9.0 out of 10)
With the Rix Mix 750 from Eco Sciences, we felt the soothing, stabilizing effect that we have come to expect from a good CBD oil. The difference in this review is that, for the first time in our reviews, we added a reviewer with chronic pain due to rheumatoid arthritis. The results were dramatic for that individual. After two weeks of a daily regimen, the reviewer noted her pain was substantially lessened, and her quality of life improved as a result. This CBD product definitely lived up to the pain-reducing claims that we hear so often. Note: We recognize that this is an aspect of CBD that we have not used in our reviews of other products, which only considered mood, focus, and sleep. To keep our reviews consistent, we minimized the pain relief aspect in our rating and stayed with the same metrics we have used for all products. We mention it here just as a confirmation of the pain-relief claims that are made for CBD.
Price (7.7 out of 10)
Rix Mix 750 is priced in the middle of the normal range that we expect, coming in around $.13 per milligram. So, nothing to complain about there, and plenty to be satisfied about considering the effect we saw from this Eco Science offering.

Eco Science Ecodrops Boost Oil Review
Eco Science offers a series of CBD oils in their Ecodrops line, each with a blend designed to produce specific results. These offerings include Ecodrops Boost, Focus, Relief, and Dream. The names make it pretty clear what each is intended for, and it’s a nice way to focus on a product that is designed to give you the specific results that you are looking for. We chose to try the Ecodrops Boost for its emphasis on mood enhancement. (We plan to review the others in the near future). The website and the bottle label tell exactly which terpenes are blended with the CBD to achieve the desired effect, and the bottle also offers helpful dosage suggestions.
Taste (7.0 out of 10)
Our comments here echo what we have written on an earlier Eco Sciences review; For a CBD oil, this is a decent tasting one. You will still get the typical grass-like taste of hemp, but it is the kind of hemp taste that you should expect from most CBD oils. We were left with an aftertaste that wasn’t terrible, but that lingered longer than one would hope.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
The Ecodrops Boost has an eye dropper for dispensing the oil, which is the most common method for oils. The fact that it is common doesn’t mean we like it, but we have learned to deal with pre-measuring our CBD dosage and avoiding messy drips. If that’s the worst gripe we have about a product, that’s not bad! The oil itself is relatively thin, so dispensing is no problem. We held it under the tongue and allowed the oil to do its work. There is a bit of an aftertaste, but again, that is common to most of the products we review.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
Boost is a fairly high-potency product, and that potency is well directed at the mood-boosting goal of this oil. The 30 mL bottle has 1500 mG of CBD, delivering 50 milligrams per milliliter. Each of the Ecodrops products has a specific purpose, and this Eco Sciences oil is geared towards that task rather than packing the most powerful punch possible. With that said, it is still a product that delivers a potency with noticeable results.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
The full spectrum blend of the Ecodrops Boost with a mix of specific terpenes offers a targeted benefit, and from our experience it does a good job of hitting that target. One of our reviewers used Boost throughout a very busy week of tasks with deadlines. During that week, his performance was, in fact, boosted. Productivity was high, and there was an absence of stress from the rapid-fire tasks that were required of him. Eco Sciences also works with a third party lab, SC Labs, to ensure the product meets the high standard that they market. It seems that the Eco Sciences Boost blend is well suited to achieving the desired effect.
Price (8.0 out of 10)
Ecodrops Boost is priced toward the lower middle of the normal range that we expect, coming in around $.10 per milligram. A bottle may seem pricey, but that price is buying 30 mL of CBD oil with 1500 mg of CBD. That’s a good value, and we would not hesitate to recommend that you put your money toward this well-performing product.
