CBDPure Review: Organic CBD Oil, Softgels, and CBD-Infused Cream

CBDPure offers premium full-spectrum CBD oil, softgels, and CBD-infused cream for muscles and joints, made using CBD from plants grown in the US (Colorado and Washington) to Organic standards. In this CBDPure review, I provide an overview of the company, how it is differentiated from other CBD brands, and some insights regarding our experience using their products.

Taking a daily CBD supplement, in the form of a CBD oil or softgel, is a great way for athletes and active people to start to benefit from CBD, as it is known to be effective in aiding athletic recovery, particularly by helping to reduce inflammation, and also by improving general wellbeing, such as helping to get a good night’s sleep (which in turn, aids recovery), and this review covers CBDPure‘s CBD oil as well as their CBD softgels.

The third product covered in this CBDPure review is the brand’s CBD-infused cream, which is a topical solution for applying to specific parts of your body for targeted relief for sprains, aches, strains and injury recovery. This post includes more details, photos and a video review of all three CBDPure products to help you learn more about the products, what they look and feel like and what they’re like to use.

The benefits of CBD for athletes

CBDPure Review trail and kale web wm 1 2

If you’re new to CBDPure, and CBD in general, then it’s worth understanding a bit more about the benefits of CBD, and specifically the benefits to us as athletes.

CBD (Cannabidiol) is a plant-based, all-natural, anti-inflammatory, pain relief supplement that is well-suited for the endurance athletes’ therapeutic needs. CBD does this by working in synergy with existing systems within the body to help alleviate pain, inflammation, soreness, loss of mobility, stress, anxiety, and insomnia. While these are all issues that can affect people in many different walks of life, as athletes, and specifically as runners, there is a particularly high likelihood that we will experience some athletic and running-race-induced combination of all of the above symptoms, which CBD can help alleviate.

About CBDPure

CBDPure is a grower and producer of high-quality full-spectrum cannabidiol (“CBD”) oil derived from certified organic-standards industrial hemp grown in Colorado and Washington. CBDPure is a family-owned business founded in 2016 with a simple mission, to make the highest-quality CBD oil available, and back that with public third-party lab test results and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

One of the particularly great things about CBDPure is how transparent they are regarding the steps they take to ensure their batches of CBD are quality-controlled and tested by third-party labs, to ensure there is independent certification and confidence in the quality and purity of their CBD products. Using reputable lab-tested CBD products from quality-focused companies is really important in such a new industry as CBD oil to help ensure we know what we are putting on or in our bodies.

To support this focus on quality, CBDPure also offer a no-questions-asked Money Back Guarantee, and the certified lab tests and reports for each lot number of every CBDPure batch are available upon request. 


What separates CBDPure from other CBD products?

  • Grown and manufactured in the US, using Organically-certified methods
  • Federally legal in the USA. Hemp plants marked for CBD harvest are selectively bred to produce little to no THC and high levels of CBD. CBD products sold across the US must only contain a maximum of .03% THC, which is 33 times less THC than the least potent strains of marijuana
  • CBDPure‘s dedication to the purity and quality of their products, as explained above.

We like that CBDPure uses hemp oil as the base, which contributes to the oil’s pleasant ‘nutty’ flavor. The hemp oil (as opposed to the CBD oil) isn’t an active ingredient but is used to dilute the CBD oil and make it easy to consume and taste. This differs from some other CBD oils which use base (inactive) oils such as coconut or sunflower oil.

My experience using CBDPure CBD Hemp Oil, CBD Softgels and CBD-Infused Pain Cream

As mentioned above, for the purpose of this CBDPure review I have been using CBDPure‘s CBD Hemp Oil, softgels and their CBD infused cream for muscles and joints. They also offer a pet CBD hemp oil. The pet CBD oil is the same ingredients as the human variety but in a less concentrated form.


CBDPure CBD Hemp Oil

CBDPure‘s CBD Hemp Oil is available in three different concentrations, 300, 600 and 1000. The product is the same, simply more concentrated as the number increases, so a half-dropper of the 600mg CBD Hemp Oil will be twice as potent as the same volume from the 300mg bottle.

The ingredients are clean and simple, true to the brand’s name. Essentially, just CBD Oil and Hemp Oil.

What do you use the CBDPure Oil for?

The primary reasons we use CBD oil are the following, which all benefit us when it comes to training and recovery, as well as in general everyday life:

  • Reducing inflammation
  • Recovering quicker
  • Calming the mind
  • Boosting focus
  • Improving sleep quality

As you may know, I have used and reviewed a variety of CBD products and found the ingredients to really help me in particular in aiding a speedy recovery from tough training and races, which goes hand-in-hand with reducing inflammation, and that is no different for CBDPure‘s oil.



It’s easy to use by dropping the oil directly into your mouth, under the tongue for the most efficient absorption, and you can take the small vial everywhere. Because CBDPure‘s hemp CBD oil tastes nice (assuming you like nutty tastes!) then it’s very easy to keep it under your tongue until the oil has absorbed.

We have been using CBDPure’s 600 CBD Hemp Oil, which includes 60 10mg servings of CBD. One ‘serving’ is half a dropper. Depending on your needs you can of course use more or less by taking a smaller amount in the dropper, or having two servings – some people may like to take one in the morning and one in the evening, for example.

CBDPure Softgels 750

For even easier transportation, if you are concerned about carrying oil around with you (in case you break the bottle while traveling, or are limited on the number of liquids you can travel with when flying), then the CBD softgels could also be a great option. Softgels are also handy if you want to be sure of getting the same dosage each time. The ‘750’ softgels offer 25mg of CBD in each serving (one softgel capsule), and include 30 servings in a bottle.

CBDPure Review trail and kale web wm 6

From a pricing perspective, CBD oil offers great value. One bottle of CBDPure 600 currently costs less than $1 per 10mg serving ($54.99 for a 60-serving bottle), and if you buy six months’ worth in one go, this comes down to $0.61 per serving ($36.67 per bottle). The price per mg is even lower if you prefer higher-strength CBD and go for the CBDPure 1000 option, which contains 16.6mg of CBD per serving.

The softgels cost around $3 per 25mg serving if you buy one bottle (at $89.99), so per mg it is more expensive – but if you buy six months’ worth in one go, this comes down to $2.08 per 25mg serving, which is a huge discount ($62.49 per bottle) and the higher price could be worth it for the convenience of taking softgels.


CBDPure CBD Infused Cream for Muscles and Joints

Now onto CBDPure’s CBD-infused cream! This product is designed to rub on specific parts of your body where you may be experiencing pain, inflammation, and stiffness.

Before I go into details, I’ll give it to you straight – I LOVE this cream. I am a big fan of topical CBD balms and creams, quite simply, because if you find a high-quality CBD-infused solution for aches, pains, strains and inflammations, and it works, then it’s a complete game changer.

Firstly, what is the CBD muscle and joint cream like?

CBDPure‘s CBD-infused cream is a non-greasy, white cream that you massage into the affected area for relief from pain and inflammation. The scented ingredients are menthol and white willow bark, which also apparently help improve its effectiveness. I don’t know about that but I can tell you that the cooling effect of the menthol when applied to a stiff, achy body part is delightful.

How to use the CBDPure muscle and joint cream

CBDPure Review trail and kale web wm 15
The CBD-infused muscle and joint cream soaks in quickly with a small amount of massaging.

My latest aches and pains have been coming from a rolled ankle. Nothing really bad, but it’s stiff when I wake up in the morning and aches when I’m tired or have been on a long run. I have been massaging the CBDPure CBD muscle and joint cream into it as soon as I wake up (or whenever I need it) and within minutes, the ankle has improved flexibility and feels fresh, on account of the CBD, menthol, and the necessary massage to get the cream applied correctly. Because the CBD cream is non-greasy and soaks in quickly, it’s great that I can put clothing on (or get into bed) pretty soon after applying it and not worry about stains or greasy marks on my clothes or sheets.


Where to buy CBDPure products

The easiest way to purchase CBD is online, directly from CBDPure‘s website. Currently they ship to all US states, as well as Canada and the UK.

You may also be able to find CBDPure‘s line of CBD products in local health stores and retailers in many states.
