Kat's Naturals Balance CBD Oil
Kat’s Naturals presents itself with a clean design and a focus on wellness. The website touts a 100% organic product and process. With the availability of a sample size, it’s easy to give Kat’s products a try. (and we think you should) We decided to go with the Balance CBD oil, which the website suggests helps with concentration, a brightened mood and improved digestive health. After having a chance to review the product, we have a few suggestions for Kat’s, but would be happy to purchase other products from them. Most importantly, we're looking forward to trying the Heal CBD oil, which has a higher potency than the Balance CBD Oil.
Taste (9.0 out of 10)
We love oils that succeed in making taking CBD pleasant. Kat’s Balance CBD oil excelled in this area. The oil was incredibly smooth and we feel that it is closer to a tincture than some of the thicker oils we have tried. There is a light hemp taste to start, but a subtle mint flavoring has been mixed in. Without overpowering, the mint did the job of masking the hemp and, unlike some more concentrated products, there was no peppery aftertaste. We found the taking of Kat’s Balance CBD to be, overall, quite pleasant. As a bonus, this product has little-to-no aftertaste.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
Per usual, we’re going to knock Kat’s for using a standard dropper bottle. It’s messy and somewhat uninspired from what some other companies are doing to improve the delivery experience of CBD oils. However, the oil itself is very light and easy to work with. There are no end-of-bottle clumps and, even if you do spill some, the oil is very clear compared to others – with only a slight tinge of yellow color. So, a slight knock for the standard bottle, but an A+ on the product inside.
Potency (5.0 out of 10)
The potency here is average and, quite frankly, that is likely on purpose with Kat’s Balance CBD oil. While some companies pay lip service to wellness and health, we feel that Kat’s means business with their Balance line. Kat’s does offer a higher potency oil with their "Heal" line of CBD oils, but the Balance product is not high potency. That in itself would be fine, but we also like to keep an eye on value. If you do prefer a higher potency for your money, this probably isn’t going to be your go-to CBD oil. You simply have to use to much of it. For those that are focused more on the health and sustainability aspect of Kat’s products, the potency should be right in line with expectations.
Effect (6.0 out of 10)
The hardest thing about Kat’s product is that there is little guidance on the actual product in regards to dosing. Yes, it is on the website, but it should be on the bottle. After procuring this CBD oil, we noticed that the product labeling we received on our shipment was different from what we saw online. That would be fine, except the bottle had no dosing instructions. We did the math and figured it out. But, you shouldn’t have to. In any event, the potency level implies what we felt in terms of effect. Yes, this is quality CBD oil. Yes, we felt great after taking our standard dose. However, to get our standard testing dose it’s more oil than we care to administer for a morning routine.
Price (6.0 out of 10)
Kat’s Balance CBD Oil is not the cheapest, nor the most expensive CBD oil on the market. But, on a price-per-milligram basis, the product is on the upper end of the spectrum. Kat’s website states that there are 750mg of full spectrum CBD in each ounce of Balance product. As such, this CBD oil sample came in at roughly $.20 per milligram. That’s almost double the average price-per-milligram we see elsewhere. We believe that those focused more on the extra attributes of Kat’s product (organic, sustainable) will find this premium easy to digest. However, if you’re looking for the most CBD for your buck, you may find more luck elsewhere. In any event, we thoroughly enjoyed Kat’s product.
