Savage Full Spectrum CBD Edible Softgels (8.6)

Savage Essentials Full Spectrum CBD Edible Softgels
Savage may not be the biggest name in the CBD world just yet, but they have caught the attention of online publications such as Yahoo, Forbes, and Buzzfeed, which piqued our interest. Their website is clean and well organized, offering CBD products by price, user experience level and in targeted bundles. Savage CBD aims high, stating on their website that they “…strive to help people by offering what we believe to be top quality, lab tested, natural alternative at affordable pricing”. We obtained several Savage products to see how they measured up to that statement and were excited to try their Full Spectrum Softgels.
Taste (10 out of 10)
It might seem strange trying to talk about the taste of these capsules, as softgel capsules have no taste whatsoever. That said, we feel that is one of the main advantages of a softgel versus, say, an oil. No taste and no aftertaste will come as a welcome change for many an oil user. The great thing about these softgels is that you can take them with you anywhere you go, delivering on-demand CBD relief with just a bit of water to wash them down. If you are one who finds the grassy taste of hemp unpleasant, capsules are a great alternative.
Delivery (8.5 out of 10)
When it comes to delivery, the capsules are medium-sized and therefore getting them down is relatively easy. Most people will have no problem pocketing these capsules for use on-the-go and as-needed with a small drink of water. Each capsule contains 25 mg of CBD, so your dosage is measured for you – no need to guesstimate the amount in a dropper. The drawback versus a chewable edible is that you’ll have to dose in 25mg increments vs. selecting an exacting amount.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
One Savage CBD capsule delivers a commonly used dose of 25 mg of CBD. While it is certainly not the highest dosage out there, given that there are products that have 30mgs or more of Full Spectrum CBD per capsule, it is enough to provide a solid effect and control your desired dosage. Also, though fairly obvious, you can also choose to double up if you need to. This dosage size is especially useful if you prefer to take multiples of 25mg – ramp up the potency with multiple capsules if needed or desired.
Effect (7.5 out of 10)
Our review team agreed that the Savage capsules de-stressed the day, as one would hope. We felt some lethargy once the capsules fully kicked in, which suggested to us that this is a good product for evening/night time use. This is not to say this is a positive or negative effect. It really just depends on your personal preference and intended usage. If you are looking for a CBD product that can help calm your nerves and cause you to relax, then this is a great option. It is possible to use this product to help you get to sleep, so easing into a lethargic state just before bed is seen as a positive in our eyes.
Price (9.0 out of 10)
Full Spectrum CBD Softgels come in 2-packs. You can get the 8 count, which costs under $35, but the better deal can be found on the 30 count, which costs about $90. That works out to 4.7 cents per milligram, which is one of the lowest prices we have seen. This is a remarkable price for a quality product, especially recognizing that capsules are usually the more expensive CBD products. To sweeten the deal even more, CBDtop10 readers save an additional 15% using code SAVAGE15 when they buy.

Savage CBD Pink Grapefruit 1000mg Tincture
Savage CBD has become a brand whose products we like to try. Our experience to date has been positive, with CBD products that speak to a quality organization. The team is attentive and keeps us informed of products and developments. Our CBDtop10 badge of quality recognition is proudly displayed on the Savage home page. With this firm footing, we were ready to undertake this Savage CBD tincture review.
Taste (8.2 out of 10)
Savage CBD offers several oil flavors, including pink grapefruit, lemon lime, peach pear, and cucumber mint. We started with the pink grapefruit, and it proved to be a good choice. The grapefruit flavor is subtle – just enough of a flavor hint to tease the taste buds. The result is an understated grapefruit taste that is pleasant without being overbearing, similar to what we found in the orange flavored oil from Joy Organics. We knocked a little off for a lingering aftertaste, but that was a minor issue. Overall, this is a pleasant tasting tincture, and we look forward to trying more Savage flavors.
Delivery (8.0 out of 10)
Yes, it’s the typical eye dropper used by most CBD oils, so there’s nothing unusual about that. Savage takes the extra step of adding volume calibration marks on the dropper tube, which is a nice touch. With these marks, there is no guessing about your serving size, and you can easily adjust your dosage up or down as needed.
The oil itself is light and thin, satisfying and easy to swallow. Coupled with the pleasant taste described above, this oil has a nice delivery that makes your CBD regimen a pleasant experience.
Potency (8.0 out of 10)
We chose the 1000 mg tincture for this Savage CBD tincture review. This ia a good strength for most users, landing in the middle of the most common strengths we usually see (500 to 1500 mg typically). As such, it delivers 33.3 mg of CBD in a full one ml dropper, which is a good level of CBD effectiveness for most CBD users.
As noted above, the dropper in this oil is marked with volume levels, so it is easy to accurately calculate your intake for the dosage you feel you need. Feeling good today? Take less than a full dropper. Tough, stressful day? Take another half dropper, or even a full second dropper to give you a solid 66 mg of CBD when you need it.
Savage offers this full spectrum oil in 1500 mg and 2000 mg strengths also, so you have choices. For some guidance in finding a good dosage for you, see our infographic How to Use CBD.
Effect (8.5 out of 10)
We expected good things from a Savage CBD product, and we weren’t disappointed. Our reviewers agreed that this tincture delivers on the CBD promise. The 33 mg recommended serving gave us that reward that most CBD users are looking for – calmness, physical well-being, and reduced stress or tension.
We found the effect to be consistent with our expectations, and would expect that most CBD users would consider this tincture just right for a daily CBD regimen.
Price (9.5 out of 10)
We love it when a quality-oriented company also manages to offer a great price to customers. Savage CBD gets all of that love with this one! At the time of this review, the 1000 mg tincture is listed at $28.99, marked down from an MSRP of $69.99. This works out to an amazing 2.9 cents per milligram of CBD. (If you buy the 2000 mg bottle, the $36.99 price works out to 1.85 cents per milligram. Incredible!)
That’s incredibly good pricing for a quality CBD tincture. But Savage doesn’t stop there. Again at time of publication, there is an additional 5% off with a code given on the tincture page.
If you’re sold on using Savage CBD on an ongoing basis, you can save another 15% with a subscription. Finally, CBDtop10 readers can save 15% with our exclusive code SAVAGE15 at checkout. You have lots of ways to save on this Savage tincture, and we’re sure you’ll be happy with your choice.
