Cibdex CBD Review | Complete Brand Info + Guide
*All the data provided is for oil products only
Cibdex is one of HempMeds’ most popular lines of CBD oils and is one of the best-known ranges on the market. It is marketed as a way to potentially ease the pain associated with conditions such as multiple sclerosis and is a viable alternative to pharmaceutical medicine.
Cibdex is based in California under the Medical Marijuana Inc. umbrella, and the product line is represented by HempMeds Px. At present, there are only a handful of Cibdex CBD oils available, but we expect the company to release several more given the popularity of the range.
- Gentle on the stomach.
- Vegan, Kosher and free of GMOs.
- It is a whole food source of nutrition.
- There are no preservatives.
Cibdex’s Top Products
Upon investigating the HempMeds website, we could only find two different oils on sale. There were pictures of capsules, but they don’t appear to be available on the site although you can find them elsewhere. In any case, all of these hemp-based tinctures are non-GMO, Kosher, Vegan, low-glycemic and non-psychoactive.
Cibdex Hemp Oil Drops
There are unflavored, vanilla and peppermint flavors. You can purchase a 1oz or 2oz bottle of CBD oil drops which are made in the same fashion. The main difference is the level of CBD concentration.
While the 1oz bottle has 100mg of CBD, the 2oz bottle has 500mg which equates to a concentration 2.5 times higher. Since the 1oz bottle costs $29 and the 2oz version is $99, the larger bottle offers better value for money in a CBD sense.
If you purchase these CBD oil drops, spray two pumps beneath the tongue and wait up to a minute before swallowing. You only need to take the drops once or twice a day to feel the benefits.
There has been a brand name change; Cibdex is now called PlusCBD, and there have been some changes to the capsule range. For a start, the new bottle contains 60 capsules compared to the old version which only had 30. Each capsule contains 15mg of CBD (instead of 25mg like the previous Cibdex version), but overall, each bottle contains 150mg more CBD.
If you dislike the Cibdex CBD oil drop flavors, capsules are a natural alternative as you can drink them with water and not have to worry about any aftertaste. Like the drops, the Cibdex CBD capsules are non-psychoactive.
Medicinal Benefits of Cibdex’s Products
The main issue with Cibdex’s products is that we’re not completely sure how strong the CBD content is. It claims there is 100mg in the 1oz bottle and 500mg in the 2oz bottle but the actual percentage of CBD remains a mystery.
Having tried the three flavors, we would suggest that you should avoid the peppermint version because it tastes exceedingly artificial. Cibdex adds Stevia to ‘sweeten’ the taste and potential side effects of Stevia include bloating, muscle pain and dizziness – just to name a few.
Upon testing Cibdex’s CBD oil, we have to say that it was only effective once we increased the dosage to double the recommended amount in the 2oz bottle. Once we did that, it began to relieve stress and anxiety in a few days. This leads us to believe that while there is high-quality CBD within the oil, the level needs to be much higher.
What Cibdex’s Clients Say:
Cibdex is now better known as Plus CBD Oil, and it has enjoyed mainly positive reviews. According to Jordan in Illinois, Cibdex was extremely effective in helping him deal with his chronic pain. Craig from Arizona was also full of praise for the product. He said that he had PN pain for the last 15 years but was amazed that the pain stopped a day after he started taking Cibdex! His only gripe is the less than pleasant peppermint flavor.
Jo-Ann Gregory from Croydon discovered what we stated regarding the strength of the product. She has not seen any effects when taking 15 of the Cibdex capsules per month and said she will double the dose to 30 per month. We believe she should experience some form of relief from the pain she suffers due to her fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis.
How to Purchase Cibdex
You can find Cibdex on a variety of websites including Wellspring. We believe it is a better bet than trying to purchase directly from HempMeds because these third-party websites tend to sell their products for less. As it contains practically zero THC, it is legal for purchase in all 50 states. Simply order online, and it should come directly to your door.
Of course, remember that this isn’t one of those brands that you’re going to find at a gas station or a smoke shop or something like that. They’re not some massive enterprise with unlimited amounts of stock and inventory, so some products may be on backorder until a new batch arrives. We’ve never experienced this personally with Cibdex, but we’ve known it to happen with other smaller brands like this in the past.
Final Thoughts on Cibdex
Overall, we believe that Cibdex is a reasonably good CBD oil range, but it’s clear that in its recommended dosage, it is not strong enough to handle serious medical problems. Once you up the dosage slightly, you’ll find it helps with anxiety and stress.
However, it is ineffective against chronic pain and seizures unless you take an enormous amount of it every day. Even with Wellspring’s price of $69.95 per 2oz bottle, it is an expensive option, and other CBD oil products are even more effective for half the price.
The main issue with CBD oil products that contain a relatively low level of cannabinoids is that new users may dismiss the entire industry as ‘snake oil.’ For example, if you take Cibdex for a week at its recommended dosage, you probably won’t feel any effect. At that stage, it is easy to consider it a waste of money and assume the entire CBD oil industry is the same.
We’re here to tell you that it isn’t! If you purchase Cibdex, please do so with the knowledge that while it contains high-quality CBD oil, it isn’t strong enough so prepare to take more than the label tells you to if you want to see an effect.

Cibdex CBD Drops From HempMeds PX
Cibdex CBD Drops From HempMeds PX
HempMeds PX recently unveiled the release of two new product lines at the CHAMPS Trade Show in Denver: Cibaderm and Cibdex.
The hemp-based CBD tincture is the only product available from Cibdex right now, but they come in “Original” and “Peppermint” flavors. The company plans to release capsules in the future as well.
Like the rest of the HempMeds PX products, the cannabidiol (CBD) drops are legal to be sold in all 50 states. They come in two different sizes: 1 fl. oz (100 mg CBD) and 2 fl. oz (500 mg CBD), which is 2.5 times more concentrated according to the Cibdex website.
How Are Cibdex CBD Drops Made?
Cibdex CBD Drops are made with 15.625 milligram of hemp oil tincture from hemp cultivars with an high amounts of industrial CBD. Other ingredients include: Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Water, Emulsifier (Sorbitan Monoleate), Lecithin, Potassium Sorbate, and Stevia Extract for sweetening.
“Cibdex CBD Drops are kosher, non-GMO, low-glycemic, and non-psychoactive.”
There are no artificial colors, preservatives, or ingredients. The Cibdex team stresses the importance of non-GMO hemp grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers as well.
Because there is no sugar added, the American-made Cibdex CBD Drops are labeled as low-glycemic too. So for those keeping track, the tincture is Vegan, Kosher, non-GMO, low-glycemic, and non-psychoactive.
HempMeds and the Medical Marijuana Inc. Controversy
It’s not all blue skies and green fields when it comes to HempMeds PX. In fact, as you do more research on HempMeds PX parent company, Medical Marijuana, Inc., the more controversy you will discover. Some are even going as far as calling HempMeds PX and similar companies “hemp oil hustlers.”
In late 2014, Project CBD released a special report outlining the lack of transparency in sourcing of the hemp for the CBD oils being sold. The report also discusses a vial of Real Scientific Hemp Oil that tested positive for heavy metals (and was then retested with different results) and multiple vials of RSHO Gold testing positive for hexane and other dangerous industrial solvents.
On January 8, 2015, Project CBD and CannaVest (a subsidiary of Medical Marijuana Inc.) posted a joint statement in defense of the report, detailing additional testing results. They note, however, that “These findings do not negate or refute the lab data presented in Project CBD’s original report,” which is questionable to say the least.
How Do The Cibdex CBD Drops Affect Me?
I decided to give the Cibdex CBD drops a try… first by sampling the 500mg versions of each Cibdex CBD Drops flavor. I was not impressed; not only was I let down from the bitter taste with traces of chlorophyll, but the effects were less than satisfying. In fact, I began to get a headache after a few days of using the product, so I stopped use altogether. Their website states that they can be added into food or beverages, but I preferred to administer a few drops underneath my tongue like I would do with any other tincture.
“The Cibdex CBD Drops were not very successful at managing stress and/or anxiety; I would not feel comfortable referring this product to other patients at this time.”
Having said that, the lack of THC allows the Cibdex CBD drops from Medical Marijuana Inc. to be legal in all 50 states. This however, does not mean you should scramble to have it ordered to your doorstep. After all, there is a reason it is legal in all 50 states. Because it has limited cannabinoid content and shady material sources, it is highly recommended that truly sick patients do not to use these CBD drops (or any Medical Marijuana Inc product) as a first-course of treatment for any ailment or disorder.
