With new CBD companies appearing all the time, choosing the one that suits you can be difficult. It is surprisingly often that we come across brands who seem unprofessional. Even if the brand is totally legitimate, sometimes the website makes it seem as if they are only targeting cannabis-smoking university students. Sadly, this can give the entire CBD industry a bad name.
Today we are reviewing a brand called Medterra. This brand could not be further from that unprofessional image. This is clearly a brand interested in health and wellness, and the entire site presents that.
But just because the brand has a good website does not mean the products are worth the money. So, today we will be taking a thorough look into the Medterra brand and the products it has on offer.
Who is Medterra?
Medterra was started by a group of individuals in Kentucky. It has since grown into a pretty big brand known throughout the United States for providing high-quality CBD. The hemp is grown in Kentucky, in accordance with the guidelines drawn up by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. As Kentucky was a central state in implementing the Farm Bill 2018, you know that this is high-quality hemp.
Medterra is even in partnership with the Hemp Pilot Research Program. This shows the brand’s dedication to changing the future of hemp and CBD. The hemp is even certified by the US Hemp Authority.
The products are all of a high-quality and safe, being non-GMO and safe to consume. Nevertheless, Medterra has an aim to make CBD affordable to all, and so tries to keep its products as fairly priced as possible.
Another thing we like about Medterra, aside from the website design and the third-party lab reports, is its social media presence. When a brand is active on social media, you can be sure that it is not a scam and that other consumers trust the company. Of course, by the time you’re checking out Medterra’s Instagram, you’ll already have the impression of complete professionalism and reliability.
Most American CBD companies do not ship to the UK as a result of international laws. Luckily, since Medterra is affiliated with the Hemp Pilot Research program, you can buy Medterra products in the UK! Shipping may take longer and is not free for international customers, but we still love that we have the option.
Medterra CBD Products
Medterra has a good range of CBD products, including some really great bundles. In the section below, we run through the available products from this brand, including the costs.
Medterra CBD Oil
As with all of the products, Medterra CBD oil is produced using a 99+% CBD isolate. It is suspended in an MCT Coconut carrier oil. Each bottle is one ounce, containing 30ml of CBD oil, dispensed through the dropper in 1ml servings. As such, the bottle contains approximately 30 servings. The dropper is marked with 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 1ml, so you can change the servings to your liking. The oil is flavourless, making it fairly versatile.
Medterra sells several potencies:
- CBD Oil Tincture 500mg: $34.99
- CBD Oil Tincture 1000mg: $55.99
- CBD Oil Tincture 3000mg: $132.99
Medterra CBD Capsules
The Medterra capsules are made similarly to the tinctures, using CO2 extraction and filtration to produce a 99.6% pure CBD extract. Suspended in MCT oil, this CBD oil is then contained within a bovine gelatine capsule. Of course, this does mean that it cannot be taken by vegetarians or vegans.
Alongside regular capsules that can be taken at any time, Medterra also offers a few other options. The CBD Good Morning capsules contain caffeine, B Vitamins, L-Tyrosine, and L-Theanine. These ingredients are designed to keep you awake and alert throughout the day. Alternatively, there are the CBD Melatonin capsules, containing 10mg of melatonin alongside the 25mg of CBD. These capsules are dissolvable; you place it under the tongue and allow it to dissolve. The idea is that the melatonin and CBD combination will help you sleep at night.
An option we haven’t seen before is the CBD Monthly Wellness tablets. Recently, we wrote an article on CBD for period cramps, as many women have found relief in using CBD products. Medterra have seemingly researched this, too, because this formula is designed for women in order to help them with symptoms of PMS. The 25mg of CBD is accompanied by ingredients like Valerian Root, Cramp Bark, Dong Quai, and caffeine.
- CBD Gel Capsules 25mg (30-count): $44.99
- CBD Gel Capsules 50mg (30-count): $66.99
- CBD Good Morning Capsules 25mg (60-count): $55.99
- CBD Melatonin Capsules 25mg (30-count): $55.99
- CBD Monthly Wellness Capsules 25mg (60-count): $55.99
Medterra CBD Topicals
Medterra only offers one topical. The Rapid Cooling Cream is intended as a rub for muscle and joint soreness. Packed full of organic ingredients such as grapefruit seed extract, aloe leaf juice, xanthan gum, and menthol, this formula allows for rapid cooling action. The list of ingredients is quite extensive, which is not necessarily a good thing; that being said, if they are all truly organic, then we can’t fault the product. The bottle is 3.4 fluid ounces.
- CBD Rapid Cooling Cream 250mg: $49.99
- CBD Rapid Cooling Cream 750mg: $77.99
Medterra CBD for Pets
The Medterra CBD tincture for pets is pretty similar to the other tinctures. However, the potencies are lower and are therefore suitable for animals. Plus, you can purchase it in Beef or Chicken flavour alongside the unflavoured variety.
Alternatively, you can purchase the CBD Pet Chews, which are intended for joint support. Made primarily of peanut butter, each treat contains 10mg of CBD, and absolutely no THC. The bag contains 20 chews, mounting up to 200mg in total of CBD.
- CBD Pet Tincture 150mg: $22.99
- CBD Pet Tincture 300mg: $22.99
- CBD Pet Tincture 750mg: $22.99
- CBD Pet Joint Support Chews 200mg: $29.99
You can also buy the CBD Pet Bundle. This package contains a 300mg pet tincture (in a flavour of your choice), a bag of the pet chews, and a 1000mg tincture just for you. It costs $115. Oddly, if you purchased the products separately it would come to $108, so we’re not sure why this bundle is offered.
Medterra CBD Bundles
The other bundles offered by Medterra are very well thought-out. Often, we see manufacturers bundling together seemingly random products, but these collections all serve a purpose.
For example, the Morning Wellness Bundle contains a 3000mg CBD oil and the Good Morning capsules. The Ultimate Relief bundle contains the Rapid Relief Cooling Cream and a bottle of the 50mg CBD capsules. Finally, the Evening Wellness Bundle contains a 3000mg tincture and the CBD + Melatonin capsules.
All of these bundles do actually offer you a saving as opposed to buying the products separately, which is great.
- Good range of products, with a little something for everyone.
- Medterra ships to the UK, despite being an American company. This is facilitated by participation in the Hemp Pilot Research program, which also makes the brand more trustworthy.
- Third-party lab reports are very easily accessible.
- CO2 extraction is used to make the products, which still remain fairly affordable considering the potency.
- For those who wish to experience the entourage effect from full-spectrum CBD, they are out of luck with Medterra. Only isolates are available, which is a downside for some users.
- There is no vaping option, which is quite surprising in the CBD market nowadays.
Our Verdict on Medterra
Overall, we love the Medterra brand. It is a reliable and professional company, and this is evident from both the website and the packaging. Once you see the third-party lab reports in clear view, it is clear that Medterra is a brand you can trust.
For some CBD users, it might be a shame that all of the products contain a CBD isolate. However, if this is what you’re looking for, then Medterra could be the perfect brand for you.
Plus, it’s very refreshing to see an American brand shipping to Great Britain. It gives us hope for the future of the CBD industry, when nobody is worried about international shipping and unfair hemp laws. We don’t know what the future holds, but hopefully it looks a little something like Medterra.
