Boulder Creek Infusions (BCI) is an up and coming CBD company that prides itself on its high-quality full-spectrum hemp oil which is made through a solventless process. They take their product seriously and that’s why Boulder Creek Infusions publishes all of their certificates of analysis for the public to see. That way, customers can verify the lab results of the hemp products they are using.
On their website, Boulder Creek Infusions seeks to educate the masses on the importance of full-spectrum CBD. The benefits of full-spectrum CBD are often summarized as the entourage effect. Basically, cannabinoids work better in conjunction with each other, and properly extracted full-spectrum hemp oil should have over one hundred cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes to provide the full effect. To use a simple and understandable analogy, they compare full-spectrum hemp oil to fresh-squeezed orange juice.
Boulder Creek Infusions sent over their Chocolate Mint, Orange Cinnamon, and Natural flavor CBD oil tinctures for me to try. I was impressed with the flavor choices, the packaging, and looked forward to doing this review.
Boulder Creek Infusions’ 1500mg Chocolate Mint CBD Oil Tincture comes packaged in a cardboard cylinder that features a branded BCI sticker announcing the tincture’s flavor in light green. Inside the cardboard lies a 30ml glass bottle with a 1ml dropper top.
I took a half dropper full, which works out to 25mg of CBD. I felt this was the amount that I needed at the time, and it is larger than my normal dose of CBD. I was first blown away by the taste of the CBD oil. I’ve never had chocolate flavored oil in my entire life - though I’ve tried several mint oils now - and I wasn’t sure what to expect. The taste was delightful. It was deep and perfectly complemented the mint taste and reminded me pleasantly of those green Andes mints.
Within thirty minutes, I could start feeling the effects of the CBD on my mind. Within an hour, I could notice it in my body. The aches and pains faded into the background and I went about my day with a clear head. Half the dropper was more than enough CBD for me for the entire rest of the day and night. I slept like a child and woke up refreshed and ready to go.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
The 1500mg Orange Cinnamon CBD Oil Tincture comes in the same cardboard cylinder, except the Orange Cinnamon flavor is marked in a dusty orange. The glass bottle within looks just like the Chocolate Mint CBD oil tincture bottle, but has Orange Cinnamon marked instead.
While the bottles look alike, it only takes a quick whiff after opening the bottle to identify which flavor is which, even if you were taking the oil under low light conditions in the morning or at night. Orange Cinnamon is more cinnamon than orange in smell, but the orange comes through more in the taste. To provide context, I am not a fan of Big Red gum, and for me, the cinnamon orange flavor wasn’t overpowering when I took ⅓ of a dropper - which works out to less than 20mg CBD.
The taste and smell of cinnamon lingered in my mind for longer than other smells, for some reason. By the time I stopped thinking about cinnamon, I noticed I was extremely relaxed and sitting/lying in a way that usually causes me pain in my back. I didn’t feel sleepy though and was able to be very productive that day.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 4.9/5
BCI’s 1500mg Natural CBD Oil Tincture comes in the same cardboard cylinder, except the Natural flavor is marked in the same black as the rest of the print. The glass bottle within is identical except for the natural flavor.
Here, I was able to smell BCI’s full-spectrum CBD oil without any additional additives. The smell was less grassy than I expected and overall very pleasant. When I took a ⅖ full dropper, I reveled at the light, natural taste and knew this was a CBD tincture that I’d be coming back to often. During the day, I prefer to use unflavored CBD products if I can because I’d rather not have any delicious tastes in my mouth while I am fasting.
20mg is my new favorite CBD dosage and 20mg of BCI’s natural flavor CBD oil was more than enough to make me feel better. I was able to have just as productive of a yoga session as I did with larger amounts of BCI’s other flavors. I also think that starting off with a natural flavored CBD hemp oil allows the cannabinoids to act without influence from additional terpenes from added essential oils.
Ease of use: 5/5
Overall score: 5/5
