Bluebird Botanicals Hemp Complete 6x CBD Oil
Bluebird Botanicals clearly understands customers when it comes to trying and buying CBD. The company offers a sample pack of three different Bluebird oils (both in regular and concentrated) in one convenient product so that buyers can try a range of products without breaking the bank. On top of that, the company offers a range of CBD concentrations across their line of products. We loved the idea of being able to try multiple products at once and the ability to dial in the best strength of CBD for each individual. The second product we reviewed from this company is the Bluebird Hemp Complete 6x, which is another one of Bluebird's concentrated CBD oils.
Taste (5 out of 10)
We've said previously that we sometimes dread the first time tasting a classic hemp-flavored oil. While the Bluebird Hemp Complete product is not a horrible tasting product, it overcompensates to mask the taste. With this product, Bluebird goes heavy on pepper. The overall taste is slightly grassy, but mostly peppery. The closest things to compare it to would be the purse capsaicin taste you would find in a chili pepper. The net effect is that there is a mild burning sensation in the back of your throat (comparable to a mild jalapeno) that sticks around for a few minutes as a lingering aftertaste. Unless peppers are your thing, we prefer the taste of the Hemp Signature and Hemp Classic lines from Bluebird.
Delivery (7 out of 10)
This product is thinner than other oils and most similar in consistency to Charlotte's Web. For those that dislike the thickness of an oil, this is a nice middle ground. Overall, the taste distracts from the smoothness of the oil, which is a shame. So, as a combined experience, we didn't find the delivery as pleasing as the Bluebird Hemp Signature line. Also, we knock every product with a standard dropper, so no surprise here. Bottom line - traditional dropper bottles are messy. It's easy to drop oil on the floor, or the bottle, and by the last drop, you're dealing with a greasy mess. This is the last thing we want in the morning, or when we're in a hurry. This won't be the first time, or last time, that you see this complaint.
Potency (10 out of 10)
At 1500mg per ounce, the Bluebird Hemp Complete packs a punch. Again, that doesn't mean we necessarily has the most intense effect of any product we've reviewed, but wow. Bluebird has gone above and beyond to get their concentrated CBD oils to clock in at the upper echelon of potency. From a practical standpoint, that means the user is getting 25mg or more from 15 drops. If you're looking for a way to streamline your CBD routine and not spend much time counting drops, this is definitely a product that meets that need. .
Effect (6 out of 10)
We often struggle with putting a number around "effect," as it can vary widely from person to person and day to day. But, we couldn't help but notice that this didn't seem to pack as much punch as the mg per ounce would lead you to believe. Maybe the taste threw us off. Maybe we tried it on a weird day. But, for us, the effect clocked in at a six. It's had a slightly better than average effect. The other concentrated products from Bluebird were better, though, in our opinion.
Price (8 out of 10)
As we have mentioned in past reviews, we are impressed with Bluebird's line of concentrated products. They've packed a lot of CBD into a pretty reasonably priced bottle - all things considered. This product's effect and taste were slightly lackluster, but you can't knock it too hard for the price when you consider it from a cents-per-mg perspective. Overall, this is a good deal, especially if you are a fan of peppers.
