I’ve been using Lord Jones’ new multi-purpose CBD product, Royal Oil (opens in a new tab) , for the past two weeks. Do I like it? Yes. Do I recommend it? God, I don’t know.
Marketed for “CBD purists,” Royal Oil is the company’s most concentrated CBD offering to date. (It’s also the highest-concentrated CBD product available at Sephora.) Each bottle contains 1,000 milligrams of CBD, which means one full dropper contains 40 milligrams. This makes it about four times more potent than Lord Jones’ CBD tincture.
The other key difference: While the tincture contains five ingredients (CBD, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, stevia, and either peppermint or lemon oil for flavor), the Royal Oil contains just two: CBD and grapeseed oil. It’s truly a CBD product for the CBD enthusiast.
The royal experience
If you’re taking the oil orally, Lord Jones recommends holding it under your tongue for a minute before swallowing. If you have sensitive taste buds, this might be an issue — Royal Oil does not taste particularly good. Because it’s only made of grapeseed oil and “broad spectrum CBD,” you’ll feel like you’re drinking cooking oil. (There is a mild cannabis scent, but I didn’t notice it after a while.) But if you’re looking for something unflavored? Royal Oil is your girl.
As with Lord Jones’ CBD tinctures, which I’d used and liked previously, taking a full dropper of Royal Oil before bed made me feel a bit more relaxed — if not sleepier, than at least more even. However, I didn’t feel a stronger effect with the oil than I did with the other tinctures. And I had to take a full dropper of the oil to feel any relaxing effects at all. When I took half a dropper, I felt nothing.
If you can’t handle the oil’s taste, using it as a “booster” for drinks and snacks is a good workaround. Perhaps you would enjoy drizzling some CBD oil onto your guacamole? I noticed no difference between CBD guacamole and regular guacamole, but maybe you will.
You don’t have to ingest Royal Oil orally, though. It’s designed to be versatile, which helps justify the price. For instance, it can be applied topically to the face or body, which makes it a strong candidate for those looking to test CBD’s genuinely exciting potential in the skincare department. Unfortunately, I could not put Royal Oil on my face — historically, grapeseed oil has made me break out. (Everyone’s skin is different, though — it’s worth noting that a lot of people love grapeseed oil as a moisturizer.) I did use it on my body after dry-brushing, which was a pleasant experience. It absorbed quickly and made my skin feel soft and supple, but it was not particularly earth-shattering.
