Charlotte's Web, also known as CW Hemp, is probably the best known CBD brand on the market. Unlike many upstart CBD brands, Charlotte's Web feels like a premium product. The website, the branding and the packaging all exude leadership in the market. This product was no different. It comes sleekly packaged and has one of the more exotic flavors we've seen - mint chocolate. Overall, we were happy with our purchase and would recommend this product to others. At 500 mg, we feel CW's Mint Chocolate is great for the new CBD user.
Taste (9.0 out of 10)
Subtle! You might expect a strong mint flavoring to overpower here, but we found that CW Hemp's mint chocolate is incredibly light. Up front, you'll get the subtle mix of mint and chocolate. Only the aftertaste has the slightest inkling of hemp. We feel that this product would be great any time of day, given it's flavor profile.
Delivery (7.5 out of 10)
We found this product to be a bit thinner than other oils - closer to a tincture. For those that dislike the thickness of an oil, this may be a great alternative. For us, we found it to be an odd consistency. It's not terribly noticeable with a drop or two. However, if you take the recommended amount, we found the consistency to be a little strange to swallow. Unlike many oils, however, the consistency of CW's Mint Chocolate did mean that it was the same from beginning to end. Another slight knock on the product is that it comes in a traditional dropper bottle. We're going to knock each of them a bit. We've found that, overall, 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 won't be the first time that you see this complaint.
Potency (5.2 out of 10)
Like many 500 mg products, we feel that this Mint Chocolate blend is a beginner's level CBD product. It doesn't pack the most powerful punch and is on the lower end of potency. You aren't paying 1500 mg prices here, which is nice. Start with a few drops and move up until you reach the desired effect. From there, you can zone in on the concentration level that best suits you, or cater your number of drops per day more effectively. CW Hemp is one of the few products that describes dosing well and we're sure if you follow their instructions, you'll be happy with this purchase.
Effect (5.0 out of 10)
Since the potency is on the lower end, it's not unexpected that the suggested serving size delivers a limited effect. (unless you do a multiple of the suggested serving) We still do prefer oils to vapes, as oils give a more consistent body effect. That said, don't expect to be blown away by Charlotte Web's Mint Chocolate. It's a beginner-level product in our eyes. We expect the average person will quickly develop a CBD tolerance that makes this product less than ideal over the long-term and they'll need to upgrade to the CW Hemp Everyday Advanced. The first drops on day one will feel great. But, don't expect to have the same tolerance by the end of the bottle. Meaning, you can move through this product fairly quickly as you build a tolerance.
Price (7.5 out of 10)
All CBD is expensive - there's no getting around it unless some laws change. We found that CW Hemp clocks in at a slightly above average price, relative to other brands offering products of the same potency. It's definitely not the cheapest. You'll still get a decentbang for your buck, all else considered. Given the multiple bottle sizes that allow for sampling, we think many entrants into CBD consumption will find comfort at this price point, given Charlotte Web's brand and history. You're paying for and receiving quality.
