In this Populum CBD oil review, we are taking a look at Populum’s 500 mg, full-spectrum hemp CBD oil.
We are going to take a look at where their hemp comes from, type of CBD they use in their oils, third-party test results, appearance, taste, smell, effectiveness, price and more. I hope this review is helpful!
Hemp seed oil
Populum is based in Tempe, Arizona and was founded in 2016 with a goal to make the health benefits of hemp available for everyone in a way that is approachable, easy to understand, and trustworthy. They offer tinctures, capsules, topicals, and pet products.
Populum’s CBD oil has a translucent golden appearance to it. Generally, the more processed a CBD oil is the lighter the color will be. Less processed CBD oils tend to be dark brown, gold, or green.
It has a faint orange scent to it and tastes wonderful. This is hands down the best tasting CBD product I’ve tried so far. I’ve read other reviews out there on Populum and they all say how good this product tastes and I was a little skeptical, but it held up to the reputation it has. So if taste is an important factor for you in a CBD oil, I recommend trying this product.
My Populum CBD dosage has been around 50 mg. I usually take it a few hours before bed as I like to take CBD oil for sleep.
Whenever I take CBD oil, I hold it under my tongue for a good minute before swallowing. There are blood vessels and capillaries under our tongues that are able to absorb the CBD and other cannabinoids. This allows some of the CBD to bypass our digestive system and go straight into our bloodstream.
However, the effects kick in within a couple of hours.
Populum’s oil is what I come to expect from a high quality, full-spectrum CBD oil. It makes my body feel good and all my stresses and anxieties from the day melt away.
In my opinion, Populum full-spectrum hemp CBD oil is ideal for:
As with every CBD product, there is no standard dose and some experimentation required to determine the best dose for you. Generally, I recommend starting with 25-50 mg and adjusting from there. The effects can take up to 3 hours to kick in, so please keep that in mind.
Populum offers three different strengths of CBD oil. As with most CBD oils out there, you pay less per mg the stronger the dose. These are the prices if you use the Populum coupon code CBDREVIEWLAB:
If you want the best bang for your buck, Populum’s 1000 mg full-spectrum CBD oil is the way to go. It comes out to $.12 per mg of CBD saving a little money in the long run.
Populums products are triple tested by Analytical 360. They test for cannabinoid profile, terpene profile, mycotoxins, residual solvents, heavy metals, and other harmful contaminants.
Populum includes these third-party lab results with every product they ship out. Most CBD companies require you to go to their website to access any third party lab results, so I love the transparency. It shows they aren’t trying to hide anything.
After reviewing the lab results there were no red flags. So you can have some peace of mind knowing Populum offers a safe and clean product.
You can order Populum on their website. Overall, it was a positive experience. It is well designed and very easy to use. As such, I would recommend ordering from there as opposed to Amazon or a local shop. That way you know you’re getting a legit product.
Since their products contain less than .3% THC, they ship to all 50 states. Unfortunately, they do not ship out of the United States.
Orders are usually processed within a couple of days and will arrive within seven days depending on the time of year.
Populum’s packaging is top-notch. Their products are well sealed and tamper proof.
They also have a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. This says a lot about the confidence in their product.
Absolutely! Populum is a product that actually works, unlike a lot of the gas station CBD out there.
Simply squirt your preferred dose under your tongue and hold it there for a minute. The CBD is able to enter the bloodstream via the salivary glands and varicose veins under the tongue. Then swallow the CBD and within a couple hours the effects will start to kick in.
In this Populum lab report for their 500 mg tincture, you can see there’s about .91 mg/g of THC: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1737/2201/files/Populum_Tinctures_Lab_Results_May21.pdf?v=1620245330
In short, YES! If taken in a large enough dose, Populum full-spectrum hemp CBD oil can get you high.
There are also still many cannabinoids in the cannabis plant that have yet to be studied, and the “high” you get from cannabis may not just be from THC.
While Populum full-spectrum hemp CBD oil comes from the hemp plant and is federally legal, it is a full-spectrum product. This means that it contains 100+ cannabinoids, including a small amount of THC (less than .3%). So it’s quite possible you may fail a drug test if you take this Populum product.
If you are subject to drug testing, whether at work or for a sport, you should be cautious with all CBD products.
Yes. The 2018 Farm Bill removed hemp from the legal definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act. This made some hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3 percent THC federally legal. However, CBD products containing more than 0.3 percent THC still fall under the legal definition of marijuana, making them federally illegal but legal under some state laws. Be sure to check state laws, especially when traveling.
In my personal experiences with Populum, I have never had a single issue. So I would say that yes, they are a reputable company.
No, Populum does not have an Amazon store. The best way to order their products is through their website.
Overall, I am very pleased with Populum. They offer a safe, natural, clean, and potent CBD oil and they are one of the most transparent companies I’ve come across.
I love their CBD oil and would order from them again. If you end up trying them out, let me know how you liked them in the comments below.
