First Impressions

CBDfx is currently the third-largest private CBD company in the world, turning 11.9 million in profits in 2019 alone. And all this in the short span of 6 years of the brand’s existence!

With the increasing number of new customers each year, the need for a thorough CBDfx review seemed like a no-brainer for our tight-knit team of CBD enthusiasts.

Following numerous public acclamations and rewards CBDfx collected during the past few years, we were curious to find out whether the quality of their products matches their reputation.

As such, we focused on the good, the bad, and the innovativeness of CBDfx products to answer the following questions:

How safe, effective, and enjoyable are CBDfx products? What are some of the benefits? How much will they cost you? And many others.

Let’s dive right in!

CBDfx Product Offer

The product catalog of CBDfx is rich in more ways than one with a plethora of flavors, sizes, uses, and application methods to satisfy even the pickiest of customers.

Wild watermelon, strawberry kiwi, strawberry milk, and fruity cereal are but some of the original vape juice flavors. But wait, there’s more:

Applications

CBDfx CBD products take many forms (we already did a CBDfx capsules review, for instance) as seen in the following:

  • Vapes
  • Edibles
  • Drinks
  • Tinctures
  • Topicals

Health Benefits

Although CBDfx CBD products are not yet FDA-approved, they include vitamins and other natural substances to help ease certain conditions, to promote skincare, or merely to serve as dietary supplements.

For example, CBDfx turmeric and spirulina gummies use an original mix that synergizes well with CBD that makes for an enjoyable treat for every-day use. This is precisely why these gummies are placed 3rd on our best CBD gummies list!

Intended uses mentioned by customers in most CBDfx reviews include:   

  • Antioxidative effects
  • Sleep inducing
  • Nutrition supplement
  • Hair and nail health
  • Skincare
  • Weight loss
  • Pain and discomfort relief (see more at best CBD oils for pain)
  • Energy-boosting

In addition, most topicals, as well as tinctures and vapes, have several potencies and sizes to choose from. The only exception being their collection of CBD pet products, which counts only tinctures for small-, medium-, and large-sized dog breeds. 

Other than that, CBDfx offers a wide variety of products (you can find anything from a plain CBDfx oil review to a more specialized CBDfx fruity cereal review), as you’ll see from the product list below.

Even though the full-spectrum products contain traces of THC, fear not — they won’t get you high. 

The quality of their full-spectrum CBD oil tincture had us rank it 2nd place on our top 25 highest-ranking CBD oils for 2020.

Which CBDfx product contains the biggest concentration of CBD?

To ease your search for a potent CBD product, our team has ranked CBDfx products by their concentration of CBD (total CBD per gram weight) that we obtained from the lab results of each product.

That’s why, if we look at a random CBDfx disposable vape pen review for example, you’d see numerous customers claiming that a higher CBD concentration means more potent health effects, and for good reason too!

So, if you were wondering whether or not to get a CBDfx product, the “CBD potency table” below can help you find the CBDfx product that will suit you best.

CBDfx product types per CBD content:

CBDfx Product   CBD Content mg/g

 

CBD Gummies (approximately 10mg per gummy) 1.3–1.6
CBD Tinctures  
500mg 19
1000mg 41.4
1500mg 58.2
CBD Capsules 57
CBD Balms 2.6
CBD Hemp Cream  
500mg 9.9
1000mg 20.6

  In short, what we’ve found while creating this CBDfx review:

  • CBDfx sublingual strips have the highest CBD concentration per weight (160mg/g)
  • CBDfx bath salts have the lowest CBD concentration (merely 0.3mg/g)

Laboratory Reports

Third-party lab tests are available on the CBDfx webpage for almost every item with the exception of E-liquids by Anml Alchemy, the wellness CBD+CBG tincture, and the CBD gummies with multivitamins for women and men.

Lab tests include:

  • potency tests
  • purity tests
  • toxicity tests

What we wanted to see, though, in addition to these, were the terpenes tests, which were lacking.

Potency Tests

  1. Cannabinoids test

The breakdown analysis per cannabinoid content reveals the concentration of the most common cannabinoids found in the hemp oil. In the case of CBDfx, tests are done for 11 different cannabinoids and the total concentration numbers are given for CBD, THC, and the total cannabinoid content.

Why is this important?

Whether you are doing a CBDfx 500mg review, a 250mg one, or any other size for that matter, a product’s cannabinoid content reflects its overall potency.

In other words, it gives you a clear idea of where to look for the highest concentration of CBD.

Nevertheless, you should also keep in mind that the application method, as well as the ingredients list, also play a role in the overall effectiveness of the product.

What does the cannabinoid content show?

THC and CBD are the most famous cannabinoids of the hemp oil, but they are not the only ones. As mentioned earlier, other cannabinoids, although present in smaller quantities, can affect the potency of both CBD and THC, which is also known as the “entourage effect.

In the CBDfx CoA you can find:

  • Breakdown concentrations of 11 types of cannabinoids
  • Total CBD content
  • Total cannabinoids content
  • Total THC content

Purity Tests

As mentioned in our CBDfx capsules reviews, CBDfx utilizes the latest technology to extract hemp oil; a statement that is confirmed by the negative results of the following purity-related lab tests.

1. Pesticide Analysis

In this analysis, the presence of common hemp cultivation pesticides is inspected.

2. Residual Solvent Analysis

Residuals of solvents that are used in the process of hemp oil extraction are toxic and should not be present in the batch.

3. Microbial Analysis

Verifies the presence of pathogen bacteria, yeasts, and mold. In the case of CBDfx, these tests prove the absence of Aspergillus, Shiga-toxin producing E. coli, and Salmonella.

4. Heavy Metals Analysis

The batch should not contain arsenic, cadmium, mercury, and lead to successfully pass this test.

5. Mycotoxin Analysis

Mycotoxins come from molds and yeasts and this test inspects the presence of 5 of the most common mycotoxins.

6. Filth and Foreign Matter Test

The question “is CBDfx vape juice safe?” can be answered with this particular test which inspects the overall purity of the batch.

Finally, all of the above-mentioned tests are not available for each and every CBDfx product type, but they are made in accordance with the product category.

CBDfx Website Reviews

CBDfx has not one but two website domains — one for US customers, and one for EU (UK) customers.

In addition, both of these websites are highly intuitive, to-the-point, and have a refreshingly informal tone to them. What’s more, the available glossary for more specific terms saves you a lot of time that you would otherwise spend googling for those same words.

However, we think that the web design of the US website could be better; the same is also true for the UK website.

As per our own CBDfx review, the UK website is a notch better than the US one — it’s more dynamic and animated with a background video.

Selected CBDfx Product Reviews

1. Blue Raspberry CBDfx Vape Pen Review

Product name: CBD Vape Pen — Blue Raspberry

Available in: single pack, 12-pack

Best fitted for: those seeking a long-lasting sweet fruity break, non-complicated, on-the-go 30mg CBD puff; for beginners and medium users alike.

CBD oil type: CBD isolate (company’s original blend), THC-free

Other Ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, and natural flavors.

User Advice: 

One vape pen contains 30mg of CBD. Those lacking any CBD vaping habits are advised to wait several hours before drawing a puff from another vape pen.

Consumer rating: 4.8 (out of 364 reviews)

Effects 

As with every other CBD vape product, this is a difficult CBDfx pen to review in regards to effects, since they are different for everyone. Yet, one thing is for certain — a long-lasting, mouth-watering taste.

What do the customers say?

User testimonials describe a stress relief effect and those who have tried it are happy with the potency and the user-friendliness of its design.

When it comes to our own CBDfx review, the vape pen of the blue raspberry flavor is our personal recommendation. In fact, this disposable single-use CBD vape product won us over with its sweet flavor and slightly sour touch; not to mention its simplicity.

Other notes

  • pre-charged
  • draw-activated
  • disposable 
  • no need to mix it with e-liquids

2. CBDfx Additive Review — 300mg

Product name: CBD Oil Vape Additive 300mg (10ml bottle)

Available in: single pack, 3-pack, 12-pack, and together with a vape kit

Also available in: 60mg, 120mg, 300mg, 500mg, 1000mg, 1500mg

Best fitted for:

Experienced users seeking highly concentrated CBD vaping additives for a more pronounced effect. Not suitable for beginners, except when used in really small amounts.

CBD oil type: CBD isolate (company’s original blend), THC-free

Other ingredients: propylene glycol, and vegetable glycerin

User Advice:

Can be consumed orally, sublingually like a tincture, or as a vape juice.

You need a vape kit to use this product for vaping.

Use a full or a half dropper per tank of e-liquid.

Consumer rating: 4.9 (out of 156 reviews)

Effects

In our CBDfx vape additive review, we focused on the potency of this item and the precautions users need to take when trying it for the first time.

Although the FDA hasn’t approved it yet, we believe that the rich content in amino acids, fatty acids, and terpenes of this CBD additive made us feel more comfortable in our own bodies, and we won’t be surprised to hear a confirmation that it also brings a multitude of health benefits.

The CBD vape additive contains propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin — regularly used substances in vaping products.

The ingredients list is also similar to the one noted in our blue raspberry CBDfx vape juice review; found in our best CBD vape oils (taking 4th place no less).

What do the customers say?

The customers report pain relief and immediate effect upon vaping or taking it orally.

Some are happy, but there are those who didn’t like the taste but enjoyed the stress relief.

Other notes

  • high-potency
  • food-grade ingredients

3. CBDfx Gummies Review — 300mg Gummy Bears

Product name: CBD Gummy Bears 300mg

Available in: single pack (a bottle containing 60 CBD gummy bears)

Best fitted for:

Experienced users seeking highly concentrated CBD vaping additives with a stronger “kick.” Not suitable for beginners, except when used in really small amounts.

CBD oil type: CBD isolate (company’s original blend), THC-free

Other Ingredients: tapioca syrup, cane sugar, pectin, trisodium citrate, citric acid, tomato lycopene.

User Advice:

You can take one or two of these gummy bears per day, depending on your body weight, and CBD experience.

Each gummy offers 5mg of CBD. You can eventually take more gummy bears, but be cautious to try this gradually, so you can predict the effect.

Consumer rating: 4.8 (out of 776 reviews)

Effects

A CBDfx gummies review is frequently featured in top CBD product lists on the internet.

We tried to find out whether it’s their shape, their sweet taste, or the fact that they are completely organic that makes them so good. Sadly, we couldn’t just pick one of these characteristics!

Highly convenient, these berry-flavored gummies will turn anyone’s daily CBD wellness dose a real treat that you’re not likely to forget. 

Furthermore, during our CBDfx 300mg review of these gummies, we found that they have undergone one of the most extensive quality testings to ensure the purity of these yummy treats.

What do the customers say?

Users claim a relaxing effect that has helped some of them with sleeping problems, restless leg syndrome, or even diabetes-induced neuropathy.

Other notes

  • natural coloring
  • natural flavor
  • doesn’t contain sweeteners
  • applicable for a vegan diet

Final Verdict

Final Verdict

Seeing how they offer high-purity, high-quality products, with highly creative blends and mixes, but most important of all, affordable prices, we can only conclude in this CBDfx review that CBDfx is a real game-changer for both the CBD market and the general CBD experience of customers around the globe.

FAQs

Is CBDfx FDA approved?

CBDfx is currently awaiting FDA approval, similarly to all other CBD brands and their customers.

Hence why CBDfx, like most other CBD companies, is not allowed to market their products as a medicine, or medicine replacement therapy, until more research is conducted to verify the various health benefits.

Does CBDfx get you high?

In short, no. Full-spectrum CBD products from CBDfx contain THC in such small quantities that are not enough to get you high or have any other psychoactive effect on you for that matter.

Is CBDfx vape juice safe?

Each and every CBDfx vape juice has passed CoA tests for purity and non-toxicity, so there’s little to no risk coming from CBDfx vape juices if they are used as advised.

For any outlying health conditions that you may have it’s better to consult with your physician first.

CBD can also interact with some medication, so consult with professionals if you fear that your medication is not compatible with a CBDfx product. 

Is CBDfx full spectrum?

Not all CBDfx products are infused with full-spectrum CBD oil, but many of them are, which include:

  • CBDfx CBD Oil Tinctures
  • CBD Oil Vape Additives
  • CBD Wax
  • Pet CBD Oil 
  • Sublingual Strips
