More and more people are discovering the healing properties of CBD (Cannabidiol) oil, an extract from the hemp plant. But you may find yourself wondering why CBD oil is so expensive.
CBD is currently being researched by scientists and medical professionals, and many individuals have found CBD to be helpful with a variety of symptoms and health issues. For some, CBD is a viable alternative to prescription drugs, opioids, and other types of pain medication. For others, CBD is a legal and convenient alternative to medical marijuana, as CBD is non-intoxicating.
Still others report finding CBD to be more effective at managing or resolving stubborn conditions. CBD was federally legalized in December of 2018 with the passing of the U.S. Farm Bill, and can be shipped to anywhere within the U.S. (as well as dozens of other countries). Be sure to check your state and local laws for the most current regulations that pertain to your specific area.
CBD oil is convenient, easy to take, non-habit forming, and non-intoxicating. Several studies and pre-clinical trials have been completed regarding CBD’s efficacy in treating anxiety, pain, inflammation, and more. An abundance of anecdotal supporting evidence is available online as well. But CBD pricing can be confusing at best, and cheaper pricing does not always equate to stellar results.
The oil is extracted from raw hemp plants and, according to ProjectCBD.com, there are essentially three different ways to create CBD oil:
Most CBD oil manufacturers are either using CO2 extraction or ethanol alcohol methods. Ethanol extraction is less expensive than CO2 extraction, and the process is much quicker. However, the trouble with ethanol extraction is that it destroys many of the beneficial properties of the natural plant, resulting in an inferior finished product. CO2 extraction is considered to be the gold standard in the industry, and yet, we can break this down even further:

The process of CO2 extraction is expensive, and while a combination of supercritical and subcritical CO2 extraction provides the most benefit in the finished product, it is a time-consuming and expensive process that requires precise, highly specialized equipment, expertise, and rigorous testing to ensure quality control and purity.
Furthermore, pricing of CBD oil can be quite confusing for the consumer. Here are some factors to consider when pricing out CBD oil:
When considering the cost of CBD oil, you will most often get what you pay for, so be sure you’re comparing apples to apples to shop value rather than simply choosing based on price alone. Likewise, it makes sense to invest in your own health and longevity. How much money have you already spent on other methods or products that did not work? CNBC.com reports that more than half a million Americans spend around $50,000 annually on medicine. It is estimated that more than 2.9 billion retail trips are made each year to purchase over the counter products.
