Charlotte’s Web claims to have 28 mg of hemp extract per 1 mL dose. Their website lab reported listed 18 mg of CBD per mL. We found that each 1 mL dose contains a total of 22.598 mg of cannabinoids, including 20.295 mg of CBD and 0.905 mg of THC.

From Lab B
We found that Charlotte's Web contained slightly more CBD than suggested by their new label.
You can take this product sublingually or mix it with food or a drink.
We purchased and tested this product in 2019 when it was an 18 mg formula. It is now a 17 mg formula. I updated the price to reflect the new price and account for less CBD, however, we need to do a new review and lab test for accurate cannabinoid levels on their new formula.
I first tried about ¼ a dropper mid-morning because I normally take 10-20 mg at a time, and one dropper (which is 1 milliliter) has 60 mg. I accidentally got some on my lips and they immediately went numb for a few minutes. Everyone is different, so this may not happen to you.
I liked that this is such a concentrated product so a little bit goes a long way and that it doesn’t make me sleepy. Instead, it does help me relax and focus at the same time. It definitely helps reduce my chronic pain, and when it is time to sleep I can certainly tell a difference in the quality and quantity of sleep.
Charlotte’s Web Maximum Strength CBD oil is made from full spectrum, organic, vegan-friendly, and non-GMO hemp that is sourced and processed in Colorado. The Charlotte’s Web Maximum Strength CBD oil is processed using the CO2 extraction method and is full spectrum. Full Spectrum usually means that the entire contents of the hemp plant, including stems, leaves, and flowers are processed.
About 15 minutes later, I felt calmer and more focused. I could definitely tell that it helped relieve my chronic lower back and shoulder pain and these benefits lasted all day. That night, I took another ¼ drop and slept like a baby. I don’t take this particular product every day because it is so concentrated, but I know when I do take it, the effects are the same each time.
The oil still has a pretty strong plant matter, earthy flavor. This can be rather off-putting, especially if you’re very sensitive to strong flavors. It is a little on the expensive side, which limits possible consumer demand to those with more disposable income.
Charlotte’s Web claims that this product can aid in sports recovery, sleep, and relieving anxiety.
Charlotte’s Web Maximum Strength CBD oil smells like mint. It is supposed to be Mint Chocolate but I don’t really smell the chocolate. The taste is an earthy mint with a hint of fake chocolate. The aftertaste is very earthy and plant-like. All things considered, however, the flavor is mild, without a strong hemp flavor, but I still don’t think it tastes good.

What is CBD Oil?
Support a sense of calm for focus*
Hemp extract and cannabidiol (CBD) are different. To further explain, full-spectrum hemp extract is a concentrated form of the hemp plant and has all the components it had, in a concentrated form. CBD is one component of the hemp plant known as a phytocannabinoid. Our Charlotte’s Web proprietary hemp is naturally high in CBD. For example, our Original Formula has approximately 86 mg of hemp extract per mL. Of the 86 mg of hemp extract, we guarantee that at least 50 mg is CBD per 1 mL.
60 mg CBD per 1 mL oil contains at least 120 mg of hemp extract per mL. Of the 120 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract, you will receive at least 60 mg of CBD per serving.
