If there is one thing that Select CBD has mastered, it would have to be the art of making their presence known. Mentioned in some of the largest and most well-known online publications, the likes of Buzzfeed, Esquire, Forbes and Rolling Stone, the number of people that know of and have tried a Select CBD product is massive.
Established in 2017, the Oregon based company takes ensuring that their offerings are potent and pure very seriously, having won numerous industry accolades and awards, even being awarded Oregon’s best CBD product.
Select CBD has a very streamlined product range and a website that is very easy and pleasant to navigate. They have not overextended themselves in trying to get a foothold across the entire market (FOMO), but offer enough to address the majority of consumers’ needs. Their range includes:
Classic CBD oil but with a twist. What is this twist you ask? The addition of specific essential oils, botanicals, and herbs introduce oil formulations suitable for different ailments. There are 4 different oil varieties:
- Unflavored– this consists of the bare-boned essentials; CBD oil and MCT oil for improved absorption. Bells and whistles aside, this still remains the most popular way of getting your CBD in, worldwide.
- Peppermint– more than mere flavor, this variety is enhanced with Ashwagandha and Rhodiola to promote an uplifted state. Ashwagandha and Rhodiola are both excellent adaptogens- herbs that make the stresses of everyday life seem easier to deal with.
- Lemon Ginger– while the product page on CBD Select’s website refers to this blend as revitalizing, analysis of its ingredients would indicate it can do much more. In particular, the presence of ginger and turmeric essential oil gives it a major anti-inflammatory boost, making it excellent for dealing with mild to moderate chronic pain.
- Lavender– the combination of CBD and essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, and passion flower are just what you need to unwind after a hard day. Perfect for managing insomnia or other sleep disorders.
CBD Select offers a vape pen line that each supply 250mg CBD per disposable pen. These aren’t your basic flavored pens but are once again enhanced with essential oils that supercharge them, making them exceptionally well-suited for specific purposes.
Their vape pens fall into one of three “specialties”:
- Focus– their focus pens are blended with either peppermint or spearmint, which work to inspire and invigorate the senses for when you need that boost.
- Relax– these pens are enhanced with either lavender or cinnamon essential oils and are best suited for their relaxing effects when inhaled. Cinnamon is a unique one, as it possesses effects that help to energize and calm; useful if you struggle with anxiety but still need that mental edge.
- Revive– the revive vape pens make use of either lemon or grapefruit essential oils, and above all else help to restore balance. Their subtle pick me up effects make them perfect for mid-afternoon usage when energy crashes and productivity drops.
Micro-dosing also makes CBD Select’s vape pen line especially interesting, as per 3-second puff, approximately 1.5-2mg CBD is delivered. This makes it easy to self-administer correct doses as needed. Each vape pen retails for $45.
- Rest – as the name suggests, this gel capsule form contains CBD oil along with Valerian root and passion flower which are useful for helping you get to sleep. This formulation is preferred by people who use CBD for insomnia or other sleep-related difficulties.
- Boost – this is a unique CBD-based gel capsule which contains energizing botanicals such as yerba mate and Moringa. This combination is perfect for consumption in the mornings to help give you energy boost necessary to get ready for your day.
- Recover – this blend combines turmeric and black pepper along with CBD, and is best for helping the body to regain homeostasis. Turmeric and CBD are excellent anti-inflammatory agents, with black pepper having more of a supporting role by boosting the absorption of the turmeric. This formulation is excellent for helping with the management of chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, or to promote post-workout muscle recovery.
- Balance – this consists of a pure CBD experience, just having additional medium chain triglyceride (MCT) oil for improved absorption. Balance is a good choice for anyone desirous of using CBD alone without additives.
Regardless of which variety you choose, one gel capsule supplies 33.33mg CBD, with a bottle containing 30 capsules. They each retail for $65.
The use of CBD topicals is highly sought-after by people desirous of experiencing a more localized effect. Even though the preparations generally have good penetrability, their effect is not as widespread as the magnitude of consuming them orally. CBD Select offers two topical products:
These transdermal patches slowly release their CBD over the course of 24 hours, delivering a total of either 20 or 60mg. The patches are ideal for managing mild to moderate chronic pain such as arthritis or muscle strains.
You can purchase them in single or packs of three in two different strengths, 20mg and 60mg. The cost for the 20mg patches is $10.99 and $29.99, while the 60mg patches cost $19.99 or $49.99, based on whether you choose the single or three pack.
These CBD-based muscle rubs offer fast relief when applied to target areas on the skin since they easily penetrate and reach troubled areas. Enhanced with ingredients such as menthol, vitamin E and tea tree oil this cream offers an invigorating effect on where it is applied, as well as leaving a non-greasy residue.
A tube of CBD Select’s muscle rub retails for $35 on their website.
Select Pets CBD Drops
Containing 0% THC, this oil is perfect for helping to support the health and well-being of your companion. Suitable for dogs and cats.
Wondering how you can get your pet to consume this? Luckily, it tastes like all the things your pet loves to eat such as bacon, chicken, peanut butter and salmon. And not to forget that there is also the unflavored varieties which can be added to food.
They are available in 30ml bottles that supply a total of 750mg CBD and retails for $50.
Montel By Select
Select CBD has teamed up with popular talk show host Montel Williams to offer his unique product range, which he states is after his decades of experience and research finding suitable strains and ensuring that the best products are available to the general population at competitive prices.
There are two products under the Montel by Select line, namely Relax and Alert CBD gel capsules, with each supplying 50mg CBD oil enhanced with terpenes that boost its traits for the benefit in question. Each of these bottles also contains 30 capsules and retails for $80 on the CBD Select website.
From all appearances, they also extremely popular, as it has been sold out for days on the website.
CBD Select is a juggernaut in the field of CBD supplements, being well known of, and liked by some of the most influential celebrities and online news organizations today. Their product range is also sufficient to meet the needs of many potential customers, and their website layout is very clean and well put together.
While they do have a section where you can view lab results for batches, unfortunately, this is only available to customers who have already purchased and have access to batch numbers on their products.
All in all, I would still trust this brand, but it could do a little better in terms of adding in these little subtle details that could make them one of the authorities in the CBD supplement space.
