Concentrated Concepts Company Info

Concentrated Concepts is a US based hemp company that features hemp derived products containing a whole range of cannabinoids. Their products are all Farm Act compliant and contain less than 0.3% Delta 9 TetraHydroCannabinol (D9 THC). As is industry standard, all of Concentrated Concepts’ products have lab results available to view online and these links are embedded on the product packaging via a QR code.

Concentrated Concepts features a wide and varied range of hemp derived products including smokables and vape-ables and edibles and more. I’ve previously reviewed Concentrated Concepts’ Stoney Pebbles Delta 8 Vape Cart and their Grape Ape D8 Flower and was impressed. For this review, Concentrated Concepts sent over their Focus CBD Oil Tincture and their John Snow CBG pre-rolled joint for me to try.

Concentrated Concepts Focus CBD Oil Tincture Review

The Concentrated Concepts Focus CBD Oil Tincture comes in a glass vial with dropper top that is branded very orange. All in all, the vial comes with 500mg of CBD. Concentrated Concepts also offers their tincture in 1000mg and 250mg strengths. 

I took two dropper fulls – equivalent of 33mg of CBD and the focus angled terpenes. The best way to describe the flavor is that it tastes like the tasty parts of the cannabis plant. When compared with other brands, I’ve had “natural” flavors that taste worse and subsequently feel worse than this because the terpene profile there is either entirely missing or not tailored towards a specific purpose.

Concentrated Concepts has added Myrcene, Beta-caryophyllene, Humulene A-terpenine, B-terpenine, A-pinene, Limonene, and Linalool. If I saw flower with this terp profile, I’d jump on it in a heart beat. The best uplifting strains I have had in my life have all been humulene heavy so when I see that on a terpene profile, I perk up in anticipation.

All the regular CBD feelings were there but so was something else. I sat out on my balcony and I reveled in the ability to focus in on whatever I wanted. Neighbor’s cat’s tail is flicking? I can almost see each vertebrae move. Sounds of lawnmowers in the distance? I think it’s coming from the East. My five senses were just standing at attention ready to be used; however, it wasn’t an unpleasant state of hypervigilance.

Taste: 4.9/5

Effectiveness: 5/5

Ease of use: 5/5

Concentrated Concepts John Snow CBG Joint Review

Concentrated Concepts’ John Snow CBG pre-roll comes in a white pre-roll container and a sticker from Concentrated Concepts that highlights what’s inside. 0.03% CBD-A, 14.92% CBG-A, 0.05% THCV, 0.11% THC, 0.24% CBC, 1.03% CBG, and 0.07% THC-A. One whole gram of hemp flower sure to set off the entourage effect on your endocannabinoid system.

I unwrapped the tip of the joint so I could give the insides a good look and smell before lighting the sacrificial flame. The flower smelled very sweet with a sour zing at the end. I sparked the joint on my balcony and puffed away at it all the way down to the roach. The hits were smooth and did not tickle my throat the way other joints that have way more THC usually do. 

Frankly, the taste was like a muted version of the smell and was quite enjoyable. The joint went really quickly, probably because I was able to take such large pulls. But even before I finished it I could notice a change in my mindstate. It wasn’t psychoactive and I wouldn’t call it a high… but there was an undeniable uplifting of my mood and that comforting feeling that everything was good in the present. I was calm, relaxed, and just chilling – kind of like John Snow on the wall.

Taste: 4.7/5

Effectiveness: 5/5

Ease of use: 5/5

Overall score: 4.9/5

Concentrated Concepts has a large selection of hemp derived products and each one that I’ve tried has been efficacious and tasty. The terpene profiles that they add to their products are well thought out and it is really great to see a company leveraging the entourage effect for their customers. Everybody’s endocannabinoid system is different so it’s impossible to say if the exact effects will happen to you, the reader; however, the only way to know is to try.
