Product Comparison Review: Beginner Orange Flavored CBD Tinctures

There is a lot of CBD products on the market, so how can you know which one to choose? With so many bad products and a myriad of brands, it can be hard to sort through the saturated market. At TruPotency, we vet products using blind, third-party testing to make sure every product you see is high-quality. This is backed by an advanced scientific board of doctors, both MD and PhD.

One of the most popular forms to take CBD is a CBD tincture. Many people like this because taking the tincture sublingually can increase absorption and you can customize your dose with the dropper. However, some CBD tinctures can have an "earthy" flavor or no flavor at all. This might not be appealing to everyone.

For those who want a little extra flavor in their CBD tinctures, many turn to the sweet orange taste that many different brands provide. Today we will give the rundown on two of the best, high-quality CBD oil tinctures for beginners with that delicious orange flavor. 

*note: both tinctures are also offered in higher concentrations


Populum Basic Hemp Oil 250 mg

Global Xtracts Orange tincture 250 mg


This full-spectrum hemp oil packs a load of the uplifting terpene d-limonene that will help relieve stress and improve focus in addition to helping to ease occasional muscle soreness. Because of the d-limonene, orange oil, and stevia, this oil has a light sweet citrus flavor that makes this enjoyable to consume. Enhancing the "entourage effect", this hemp oil also contains smaller amounts of THC, CBG, CBC, beta-myrcene, alpha-pinene, linalool, and ocimene to improve relief from soreness and stress.


This orange tincture from Global Xtracts is made with Phytocannabinoid-Rich organically grown hemp oil, meaning you get the benefit of the "entourage effect" of the extra cannabinoids and terpenes without THC. Along with CBD you will get the benefits from high levels of the uplifting terpene d-limonene that will help relieve stress and improve focus in addition to helping to ease occasional muscle soreness, and smaller amounts of CBDV and other terpenes to improve the overall therapeutic potential to enhance the benefits of CBD. With a light orange flavor, this tincture is pleasant to consume.

As you can see in the data above, both tinctures have very high amounts of limonene. This is due to the orange oil used in both tinctures. Limonene is a terpene found in nature that is most well known for its association with citrus scents and flavors. Also found in cannabis, it is thought to help boost mood, fight stress, and give you focus.

One major difference is that Populum provides a full-spectrum tincture with small amounts of THC, while Global Xtracts is shown to be broad-spectrum and without THC. This could be one major factor for many people when selecting a CBD product. For those that need to avoid THC, then Global Xtracts would be the choice. However, if you want a tincture with more cannabinoids and terpenes to enhance the entourage effect, then Populum would be the choice for you.

As cost is not much of a factor between the two (Populum $47 | Global Xtracts $45) either way you go, we hope this data will help you make an informed decision on your next CBD product.
