Populum 1000mg Orange Full Spectrum Hemp Oil
In addition to writing our top 10 list reviews, we read about CBD every day. Populum is one of those companies that you just can’t ignore. The company consistently makes top 10 and top 20 product lists across a variety of publishing outlets. With modern branding and a user-centric website, it’s no surprise that Populum is a rising star in the CBD space. We were excited to review the Populum product line and started with the 1000mg orange CBD oil.
Taste (9.5 out of 10)
If you’re a fan of oranges, as we are, you’re going to love Populum’s taste. We’ve seen a lot of companies cut the taste of hemp with various citrus ingredients, but orange was a first for us and, man, it’s tasty. Despite being orange dominant, the taste is not overpowering in our opinion. It’s a nice taste that almost completely masks any hint of hemp. There is a back end acidity with the aftertaste, but it’s very pleasant overall.
Delivery (8.5 out of 10)
The Populum 1000mg oil is medium-thin oil with a dark yellow tint. We wouldn’t quite classify it as a tincture, but it is on the thinner side of most oils. The oil is easy to draw into the dropper and is unlikely to create any mess for the user. We did give a deduction for using a standard dropper, which is not our ideal delivery mechanism, but it does the trick. As a bonus, the Populum dropper does have fractional millimeter markings for accurate dosing. For those of you that are used to CBD oils, you’ll be very comfortable with the product here.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
This Populum oil clocks in at 1000mg, which is on the middle-high end of the potency spectrum. A year or two ago, 1000mg was on the high end, but some bottles are coming in at 2500-5000mg these days. That’s neither a good thing nor a bad thing, as it is our belief that everyone is going to have a dosage need that fits their lifestyle and body chemistry. As you get to the higher dose need, the higher potency oils, such as the Populum 1000, just mean you don’t have to take down multiple droppers full of oil.
Effect (8.0 out of 10)
The effect we felt fell right in line with our reviewers’ expectations. At our standard dose, we felt a calming sensation come over us within 30-45 minutes – perfect to start a rough day with a fresh perspective or wind down after a long day at work. We did try the Populum oil multiple times, as the first reviewer noted a delayed effect. But, subsequent reviewers noted no significant delay in effect. If you’re a fan of 1000mg oils, you’re going to like what Populum has to offer.
Price (7.0 out of 10)
Typically, we’d have to knock Populum on their prices. Yes, it is absolutely a premium product, but at $179 per bottle we were having a hard time stomaching 17 cents per milligram. ($173 divided by 1000mg) Lucky for you, we were able to secure a 20% off promo code “CBDtop10” exclusively for CBDtop10 readers! That makes us happy and will bring this oil quickly back within daily reach for our readers. Now, with our code applied, the bottle is $143. 14 cents per milligram is still on the higher end, but not drastically high. Many of the brand we’ve reviewed clock in at this range, even though you can certainly find products in the 6-10 cents per milligram range. If you want a premium product with great taste and are not searching on price alone, we cannot say enough good things about this oil.
