1000mg Mend CBD Tincture Review
Many CBD brands are making an extra effort to differentiate themselves to stand out in the crowded CBD market, and we found that Care Division is doing a good job of it. We spoke with some members of this family-run, female-owned business and learned about the path that brought them to where they are today. Their CBD, sourced from their own hemp farm in Colorado, is combined with other herbs and zootropics to make specific formulations with specific purposes. We tried their Mend pain relief formulation, and now we’re excited to sample their other tinctures as well.
Taste (7.5 out of 10)
The Mend tincture features CBD combined with Black Cumin Seed as a formulation to relieve pain. The cumin seed has quite a strong, pepper-like taste that caught us off guard. As the tincture rests in the mouth, however, this strong flavor became an oddly satisfying change from typical CBD formulations (although our reviewers' opinions were mixed on this). A slight peppery aftertaste lingered in the mouth for a while. We expect that the taste will be polarizing, but our review team mostly approved. Care Division describes the taste as "exotic", and that seems like a good word for it.
Delivery (8.2 out of 10)
Care Division uses the common dropper as their delivery method. Regular readers know that we are not wild about droppers, but we recognize that it is pretty standard, and our score here reflects that. We moved it a bit higher because the dropper is conveniently imprinted with volume markings to measure out full or partial doses.
Potency (8.8 out of 10)
The Mend tincture that we reviewed is a 1000 mg formulation, which is a middle-high concentration and above many common products that we see. A dropper full will nominally deliver 33.3 mg of CBD, double the dosage of a dropper from a 500 mg bottle. This allows the user to either stretch the bottle for twice as long or to easily take a larger dose when desired. The last thing you want is to feel like your precious oil is being consumed way too fast. Other strengths are available (1000 mg, 1500 mg), so users can choose a more potent formulation if so desired.
Effect (8.6 out of 10)
The CBD isolate and cumin seed formulation delivered well, providing a solid, calming relief according to our reviewers. The unique taste is oddly alluring and we found ourselves returning to the Care Division Mend product every few days (between reviews). Our review team felt that the Mend tincture delivered nicely at the 1000 mg strength relative to other 1000mg oils and could easily see this product becoming part of a regular routine.
Price (8.8 out of 10)
The price for the Care Division Mend tincture came in at $.075/mg, which puts it in the low part of our expected range. This makes for great value, especially taking into account all the good things our team found to like about this unique tincture.
