CBDistillery vs. Joy Organics: A Comparison-Based Review

In this article we break down offerings from two top tier CBD companies: CBDistillery and Joy Organics. As the CBD industry continues to grow, some companies rise to the top while others drop to obscurity. For consumers of CBD products, discerning a company’s status and reputation presents a serious challenge. 

But to help you out, we’ve done much of the legwork here and will provide an in-depth exploration of what these two companies bring to the table. Continue reading to find out which company offers the best products to meet your needs and expectations. 

Not only do we compare product specifications, prices, and promotions, but we also take you through a side by side comparison of what we believe to be key points of evaluation. As such, we provide the tools for finding better CBD products and companies in general.

An Overview of the CBD Tincture Market

We must thank the State of California for being the first state to legalize the use of medical marijuana! With the passage of Proposition 215, the general public’s access to cannabis and its related products was legalized. Indeed, it was revolutionary because it broke down decades of cannabis prohibition.

But the human consumption of cannabis has a long history. The first recorded use of cannabis for its therapeutic benefits dates back to 2737 BC when Sheng Nung, a Chinese emperor, consumed cannabis-infused tea. But it wasn’t until William B. O’Shaughnessy published a study on cannabis’ therapeutic effects in 1839 that the scientific community considered its medical applications. In 1942, Roger Adams isolated cannabidiol (CBD) that paved the way for the discovery of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). 

Nowadays, CBD oils and tinctures are widely studied for their therapeutic effects, and the presence of numerous manufacturers and sellers makes them more accessible. Among the more popular manufacturers/sellers are CBDistillery and Joy Organics, and we’re going to compare their CBD oils or tinctures. 

But first, we must make a distinction between CBD oils and CBD tinctures since it will influence our final verdict. While these terms are often used interchangeably, these are different products. Both, nonetheless, are similar in that these contain CBD derived from hemp and other plants in the Cannabis sativa family. 

For one thing, the CBD extraction process is different for CBD oils and CBD tinctures. For CBD oils, carbon dioxide (CO2) is used along with heat and pressure to separate the therapeutic CBD from hemp. Manufacturers generally consider this and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be a safe method, as well as the most efficient and fastest. 

For CBD tinctures, alcohol is used as a soaking agent. Cannabis is soaked in alcohol, and then the mixture is slowly heated. The alcohol then becomes infused with CBD before it’s boiled or diluted. 

There are differences in the final products, potency, and shelf life due to the differences in the manufacturing process. With CBD oil, the CBD is suspended in a carrier oil. With CBD tincture, the mixture has a glycerin or alcohol base. 

In general, CBD oils have higher CBD potency and can be used as an oral and topical product. CBD tinctures, on the other hand, cannot be used on the skin, but these have a longer shelf life. 

Both products, nonetheless, can be used for a wide range of health-related applications. These include sleep and relaxation, reduced feeling of muscle discomfort and stiffness, and less physical inflammation. We suggest reading the product labels and asking the manufacturer for more information about a specific CBD oil or tincture’s therapeutic benefits.  

Joy Organics vs CBDistillery fact 3

Let’s take a brief look at CBDistillery and Joy Organics since we believe that company history and reputation significantly impact our purchasing decision. 

CBDistillery isn’t a company in itself but the flagship brand of Balanced Health Botanicals, a vertically integrated family of hemp-derived CBD brands established in 2015. Such is its active campaigns to promote CBD products that it’s a buzzword in the industry. It takes pride in its highest quality CBD oils made from non-GMO organic hemp. 

Joy Organics, which was established by Joy Smith and her family in 2018, offers several full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD products. These are derived from USDA Certified Organic ingredients, including organic hemp. The company asserts that independent parties have rigorously tested its CBD tinctures.

Explanation for the Points of Comparison

Brand Reputation

CBDistillery is known for its transparency about its manufacturing process, labeling practices, and product performance that, in turn, promotes consumer trust. Furthermore, it’s known for its active campaigns for consumer education about CBD, including its therapeutic benefits, side effects, and proper use. 

Every product comes with a Q.R. code that allows its buyers to see the third-party test results and, thus, confirm its safety and efficacy. CBDistillery products are made according to FDA’s stringent manufacturing standards, including conscientious tests for their potency and quality. Better yet, the brand has the coveted U.S. Hemp Authority (USHA) certification, a seal of approval attesting to its compliance with the USHA’s independent third-party audit standards. 

CBDistillery is also a respected member of the U.S Hemp Roundtable and the National Hemp Association, both professional industry organizations. Its parent company is generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status after an intensive and independent review by toxicologists. 

All CBDistillery products are made of or derived from non-GMO industrial hemp cultivated using natural, organic farming practices. The hemp is sourced from open-air farms in Oregon, Kentucky, and Colorado. 

From the hemp farms, the plants are delivered to a government-approved facility for processing. It’s approved by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, as well as applies the current good manufacturing practices (cGMP). As if that wasn’t enough to ensure the best quality possible, it’s also an ISO-9001 certified facility. 

CBDistillery uses a CO2 supercritical extraction process for its full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oils. The ethanol extraction process is used for its isolated products. 

Such conscientious compliance with government and industry standards has resulted in CBDistillery maintaining a clean record with the FDA – no warning letters of violation, for example. This is also evident in the numerous verified favorable reviews about its products on its official website and elsewhere on the Internet. 

Like CBDistillery, Joy Organics is also in the good graces, so to speak, of the FDA, considering that it hasn’t received warning letters regarding unfounded or illegal health claims. This is an important factor for consumers as FDA has stringent regulations about products implementing illegal and unfair marketing practices. 

Joy Organics also has no record of lawsuits filed by consumers and other entities regarding its products, claims, and business practices. Add in its A rating from the Better Business Bureau, and it’s truly a credible and reputable company! 

But it must also be pointed out that in 2018, Remedy Review, a CBD watchdog website, tested Joy Organics’ Orange Bliss Tincture and found it contaminated by a fungicide. Said fungicide, known as Imazalil, is a common product used on citrus fruit. 

To their credit, Joy Organics immediately investigated the issue and acknowledged it. Samples were sent to third-party labs, with one lab detecting the fungicide while the other concluded it was non-detectable. The contaminated batch was also recalled. 

As a result of the controversy, Joy Organics adopted changes to their quality control standards, including posting third-party lab test results or certificate of analysis (COA). These results pertained to each batch of the products and were posted on its official website. The results typically contain information about potencies, such as the cannabidiol content and other cannabinoids, microbiological contaminants, heavy metals, and pesticides. 

The hemp used in its products is also cultivated in the United States and certified organic by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. General details about the growing and manufacturing process for its products are also posted on its website. The level of transparency exercised by Joy Organics contributes to its status as among the most trusted in the industry. 

According to the company, it isn’t certified as compliant with CGMPs as overseen by the FDA. But it also emphasizes that it “was founded on the critical tenet of compliance” and that its operations have been compliant with H.B 8179 regulations. 

Winner: We have to give this initial round to CBDistillery because of its proactive stand on transparency about its products, from the ingredients to the manufacturing process. Its active membership in many industry organizations is also proof that it’s committed to the advancement of the CBD industry, not just for its own sake but for its consumers, too. Its cGMP-compliant facility and practices also take the cake, in our opinion.

Product Variety

We considered the range of products, particularly CBD oils and tinctures, in our comparison because we acknowledge that there’s no one-size-fits-all product. Both first-time and regular users must choose from a fairly broad range of products according to their specific and changing needs. 

Joy Organics vs CBDistillery fact 1

CBDistillery’s product categories are impressive based on their numbers alone. Each product category has multiple products so that customers can choose based on their current needs. The product categories are CBD soft gels, CBD gummies, CBD topicals, CBD powders, and the CBD oils being compared here. CBD vapes, THC-free CBD, and CBD products for pets are also available in broad-spectrum, full-spectrum, and isolates in different sizes and potencies.

We like that the edible products have clear recommendations about content per serving. Users don’t have to engage in a guessing game or second-guess themselves, which isn’t just safe but also convenient. 

The CBD oils and tinctures were also packaged in the same blue-and-white bottles with dropper lids for the 30ml bottles. Each bottle is placed inside a Q.R. code-stamped box containing the paper inserts, which are like mini-informational pamphlets. The latter contains vital information, including recommended dosage, ingredients, and possible side effects. 

In short, we loved the product packaging! 

As for the CBD oils, we found these products. (CBDistillery sells its CBD oils mostly in a 30ml bottle) 

These come in several strengths, from 250mg to 5000mg but are all offered in 30ml bottles. These contain no THC.  

  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (30ml) 

This is touted as the bestselling CBD oil tincture because it’s suitable for daily use and perfect even for beginners. With it, you can enjoy the daily recommended amount of 30-60mg of CBD. It contains CBD oil along with plant proteins, vitamins, and minerals, too. 

  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (30 ml) 

With a smaller concentration, it’s perfect for beginners who want to experiment with their ideal CBD dosage. It’s a moderate dose of CBD with 14mg per serving. 

  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture (30ml) 

For individuals who want their daily CBD dose in a single serving, the 2500mg oil tincture is the best choice. Every 1ml serving, or a full dropper, has 83mg of CBD, a high level for beginners but the Goldilocks for many seasoned users. 

  • Extra Strength CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture 1:3 (30ml) 

Keep in mind that the Extra Strength CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture 1:3 is so named because it is, indeed, more potent than the usual CBD oil. But when taken according to the recommended dosage, it’s among the most effective in bringing about restful sleep, relaxation, and pain relief. 

  • Full Spectrum CBD Mango Tincture (30ml) 

While CBD oils aren’t gross in terms of taste, many customers prefer flavored ones. CBDistillery offers a mango-flavored CBD oil to satisfy their preferences, and it’s becoming more popular, too. Think about tropical vacations as your mind and body relax and enjoy the relief. 

  • CBG + CBD Oil Tincture 1:1 (30ml) 

The combination of CBG and CBD results in the so-called entourage effect wherein their health benefits are multiplied or wherein their known effects are magnified. In layman’s terms, it means that you’re likely to enjoy the relaxation and relief benefits faster, better, and for a longer time. This is also suitable for daily use, and its serving size can be adjusted depending on your goal. 

  • CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture 1:3 (30ml) 

If you’re struggling with sleep or dealing with anxiety, you may want to consider this CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture. The CBN and CBD combo should put your mind and body at ease faster than before and, thus, make you sleep easier. 

  • Relief + Relax CBD CBG 1:1 (30ml) 

This is yet another product proven to stimulate a feeling of wellness, relaxation, and relief through the entourage effect. Take note that it may be too strong for beginners, but just right for seasoned users. 

CBDistillery also offers a few packages, including: 

  • CBD Oil Starter Set – Full Spectrum Tincture and Broad Spectrum Tincture (Both 1000mg) 
  • Cannabinoid Mix Pack – CBG: CBD Tincture and CBN: CBD Tincture
  • Discovery Tincture Trial Pack (The package inclusions are three bottles of 5ml Full Spectrum, Broad Spectrum, and Isolate CBD tinctures) 

Since the CBD oils are sold in 30ml bottles, it’s easy to estimate the frequency of ordering them. Just be mindful about the potency of whatever CBD oil you’re ordering, as using too much, or too little of it will affect your enjoyment of its benefits. 

Joy Organics has a more limited range of CBD oils – five, as of this writing – but their overall quality and efficacy are no less impressive. Customers can choose from broad-spectrum and full-spectrum CBD oils that can be purchased as single products or as packages with discounted prices. 

The CBD oils are also sold in 30ml bottles with a dropper lid and placed inside either white- or green-colored boxes. The boxes are also clearly labeled with the volume, potency, and type of product, so there’s no second guessing here. These are also available in several concentrations, with each concentration offered at a specific price. 

The five Joy Organics CBD oils are: 

  • Fresh Lime Organic CBD Tincture (Full Spectrum)
  • Tranquil Mint Organic CBD Tincture (Broad Spectrum)
  • Orange Bliss Organic CBD Tincture (Broad Spectrum)
  • Summer Lemon Organic CBD Tincture (Broad Spectrum)
  • Unflavored Organic CBD Tincture (Broad Spectrum)

The full-spectrum CBD oils contain terpenes and other cannabinoids, among other naturally occurring cannabis plant extracts, and low THC levels. Usually, THC levels are less than 0.3%, so these aren’t potent enough to result in a “high” associated with cannabis use. 

Broad-spectrum CBD oils, in contrast, typically have 0% THC but still contain the naturally occurring compounds in cannabis plant extracts. These include terpenes, cannabichromene, and cannabinol (CBN), which have possible antiseizure, antibiotic, and anti-inflammatory properties. 

So, which type of Joy Organics CBD oil is right for you? Well, it depends on your specific needs. If you want the CBD-related health boost without the effects of THC, then go for broad-spectrum oils. If you want to enjoy more benefits and the THC level potentially isn’t a big deal, then the full-spectrum oils are your best bet. 

According to Joy Organics, all of its CBD oils are formulated to relieve the stresses of your mind and body, allow for a sense of relaxation and relief, and stimulate a feeling of wellness. The speed, level, and duration with which these feelings are created and remain differ depending on the strength of the CBD oil. 

Joy Organics’ CBD oils come in several strengths, too, from 15mg/serving or 450mg/30ml bottle to 75mg/serving or 2250mg/30 ml bottle (discussed below). 

Winner: We have to call it a draw since each brand has its merits concerning the variety of its CBD oils. On the one hand, CBDistillery has several distinct CBD oils, from full-spectrum to isolates, which are more than those offered by Joy Organics. On the other hand, Joy Organics has more choices regarding the strength of the CBD oils, a clear advantage over CBDistillery. 

CBDistillery vs. Joy Organics - Divider

CBD Strengths and THC Concentrations

If we’re going to be scientific about it, both CBD and THC have 30 hydrogen atoms, 21 carbon atoms, and two oxygen atoms – in short, they have the same molecular structure. Their differences in terms of the effects on the human body stem from the slight difference in their atoms’ arrangement. 

Both cannabis-derived compounds, nonetheless, have similar chemical properties as your body’s endocannabinoids that allow interactions with your cannabinoid receptors. This, in turn, releases your brain’s neurotransmitters, the chemicals responsible for the transmission of messages between your cells. These chemicals play significant roles in your experiences related to pain, sleep, and stress, as well as your immune function. 

The bottom line: CBD and THC have health benefits, but their specific effects will differ depending on the amounts you’re introducing into your body. You must then be aware of the CBD strengths, usually measured in milligrams, and THC concentrations measured in percentage when choosing CBD oils. 

Going back to their different atomic arrangement and, thus, effects on the body, CBD and THC have different psychoactive effects. CBD is also a psychoactive compound, but it doesn’t give the high associated with cannabis use. Plus, it’s used for its therapeutic effects with depression, anxiety, and even seizures. 

THC produces a sense of euphoria, or a high that’s associated with cannabis use. But such a “high” effect can be somewhat decreased when it interacts with CBD. 

With these in mind, we can say that both CBDistillery and Joy Organics will give each other a run for their money! Both offer CBD oils in varying CBD strengths and THC concentrations. 

CBDistillery sells the following products with specific CBD strengths or THC concentrations. CBD strength is stated in mg, both in a single 30ml bottle (the higher number) and in a single serving (1ml). 

  • THC-free Isolate Pure CBD Oil Tinctures have no THC and, thus, will not give you a “high” feeling. As previously mentioned, their strengths range from 250mg to 5000mg, which should address the needs of every CBD oil enthusiast. 
  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture – Has 1000mg or 33mg/serving; contains less than 0.3% THC 
  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture – Has 500mg or 17mg/serving; with less than 0.3% THC
  • Full Spectrum CBD Oil Tincture – Has 2500mg or 83mg/serving; contains less than 0.3% THC 
  • Extra Strength CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture 1:3 – Has 300mg CBN + 900mg CBD or 10mg CBN + 30mg CBD/serving  
  • Full Spectrum CBD Mango Tincture – Has 1000mg or 33mg/serving 
  • CBG + CBD Oil Tincture 1:1 – has 2000mg/bottle 
  • CBN + CBD Sleep Tincture 1:3 – Has 150mg CBN + 450mg CBD/bottle 
  • CBD + CBG Oil Tincture 1:1 – Has 1000mg/bottle 

Be sure to consume the recommended dosage only or to be careful about your experimentations with the right dosage for your current needs. The different CBD strengths per serving can be confusing for beginners, so it’s usually best to go with the recommended dosage. 

Let’s shine the spotlight on Joy Organics’ CBD oils. According to the company, all of its products, including CBD oils, have 0% THC levels, which is achieved using patented technology. But it also says that there may be traces in its CBD oils because raw hemp extract may contain THC in small traces. 

The Joy Organics CBD oils and their CBD strengths are: (All are in 30ml bottles) 

  • Fresh Lime Organic CBD Tincture is available in several strengths:
    • 900mg/bottle or 30mg per serving 
    • 450mg/bottle or 15mg/serving 
    • 1350mg/bottle or 45mg/serving 
    • 2250/bottle or 75mg/serving 
  • Tranquil Mint Organic CBD Tincture is also available in four strengths:
    • 900mg/bottle or 30mg per serving 
    • 450mg/bottle or 15mg/serving 
    • 1350mg/bottle or 45mg/serving 
    • 2250/bottle or 75mg/serving 
  • Orange Bliss Organic CBD Tincture is offered in three CBD concentrations:
    • 900mg/bottle or 30mg per serving 
    • 450mg/bottle or 15mg/serving 
    • 1350mg/bottle or 45mg/serving 
  • Summer Lemon Organic CBD Tincture comes in three versions, too:
    • 900mg/bottle or 30mg per serving 
    • 450mg/bottle or 15mg/serving 
    • 1350mg/bottle or 45mg/serving 
  • Unflavored Organic CBD Tincture is for sale in three concentrations:
    • 900mg/bottle or 30mg per serving 
    • 450mg/bottle or 15mg/serving 
    • 1350mg/bottle or 45mg/serving 

We find that Joy Organics’ categories, according to their CBD strengths to be more organized and, thus, less confusing than that of CBDistillery. It’s easier to remember CBD concentrations when these are stated in whole numbers, from 15mg to 75mg, per serving. We find it more convenient to calculate the ideal amount for our specific needs at the moment instead of getting out a mini-calculator to do so. 

Winner: Joy Organics for a reason mentioned above. Plus, we also like that Joy Organics presents important supplement facts and recommended use on each of the CDB oil’s boxes.

Therapeutic Benefits

Is CBD oil better than CBD tincture and vice-versa? We must say that both products can be effective, but you must decide based on your personal preferences and goals. You must consider your choice in base, flavor, and method of administration. No matter your choice, it won’t take away from the efficacy of CBD oil and CBD tincture. 

You may, for example, choose CBD oil because the smell of alcohol-based CBD tincture turns you off. But you may also choose a CBD tincture because CBD oil may leave an unpleasant taste when taken orally. 

CBD tinctures are available in different flavors and can be quickly absorbed by the body since it’s taken sublingually (under the tongue). These also have a longer shelf life, although CBD oils can also have extended shelf life by keeping them away from direct sun exposure. 

Both CBD oils and CBD tinctures can be taken for a wide range of physical and mental health issues, including: 

  • Chronic pain
  • Arthritis or joint pain
  • Migraine
  • Cluster and other headaches
  • Nausea
  • Allergies or asthma
  • Epilepsy and other seizure disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis 
  • Lung conditions
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Sleep disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder 
  • Cancer 

If possible, we suggest talking to your doctor before using any CBD product, including CBD oils and tinctures. This is particularly true if you have an underlying medical condition and you’re taking prescription medications. While the CBD oils and tinctures from CBDistillery and Joy Organics are safe and non-toxic, caution is still advised. 

With that said, let’s take a closer look at the therapeutic benefits that these products bring with regular and proper use. The emphasis here is on “regular and proper use” as too little, and too much have little effect and adverse effects, respectively.  

According to CBDistillery, numerous customers across the United States have reported that its CBD oils have made a “considerable impact” on their health and lives. Aside from being an easy way of adding CBD to your daily life, its proper and regular use can result in the following health benefits: 

  • Less discomfort and stiffness in the body, particularly the muscles 
  • Less inflammation due to physical activity or exercise 
  • Improved mood, including a more relaxed mind and body 
  • Better sleep quality 
  • Reduced body pains and aches 

Since CBD oils aren’t intoxicating, you won’t go around looking and feeling ‘high”. You can also add these oils to your food and beverages, such as coffee, shakes, and smoothies. But the tincture is best taken sublingually – place the recommended dosage under your tongue for 15-20 seconds and then swallow. Be sure to use the dropper to get the recommended amount. 

Keep in mind that the ideal CBD daily dosage will vary between individuals depending on their age, health condition and goals, and personal preferences. But the average daily use recommended is between 30mg and 60mg. 

If you’re a beginner, you can start with a 5-10mg dose.  You must observe your body and its reactions to the first dose for about four hours. You may then increase the dosage if you’re not getting the desired effects, but avoid going past the 30mg line. You want your body to become gradually accustomed to CBD, not shock it. 

Joy Organics’ CBD tinctures are known for their clear, clean, and consistent quality without irregularities like debris and bubbles. Its flavored tinctures also have a refreshing aroma that doesn’t become cloying after a few minutes. These are like fascinating perfumes but taken orally if you can imagine that. 

These CBD tinctures are also an easy way of introducing CBD to your daily routine since they are easy to take and absorb quickly. You can use them anytime, anywhere for as long as you’re within the recommended dosage for your specific needs. You can take a Joy Organics tincture as is through the sublingual method or mix it with food and beverage. You may even add a few drops to your shampoo or lotion, a safe method since your skin’s cannabinoid receptors will benefit from it. 

Since Joy Organics’ CBD tinctures don’t have THC, you won’t get the “high” feeling, too. Plus, there are no side effects when these are used properly, although taking too much of any of these products can cause drowsiness. The company also cautions against taking large doses of its CBD tinctures if you have a liver condition. 

The recommended dosage is one to two full droppers per day, but you can take more depending on your needs and tolerance. When taken as recommended, its health benefits are aplenty, including: 

  • Better balance by stimulating homeostasis 
  • Increased energy levels but without the physical side effects, such as jitters and palpitations, that coffee and energy drinks bring 
  • More nourished skin due to the action of CBD on cannabinoid receptors
  • Healthier joints and muscles, both for daily support and for post-workout recovery 
  • Better quality of sleep since CBD stimulates relaxation and relief 
  • Reduced stress levels 

The best thing about Joy Organics’ tinctures is that these take effect within 15-60 minutes after application! Of course, the actual number of minutes will depend on your unique diet, tolerance, and metabolism, but you should be able to enjoy its effects quite soon. The effects will last between four and six hours because CBD tinctures are absorbed faster by the body. 

As for how long the CBD tincture will stay in your system, it also differs based on the amount you used. But CBD’s half-life is one to two days, which means that it may remain for up to seven days. 

Winner: The two brands are head-to-head on the therapeutic aspect. Their CBD oils and tinctures have quick-acting health benefits that will last for several hours after application. Both brands also have similar efficacies in pain relief, sleep quality, and support for the muscles and joints, among other benefits. We then deem it a draw. 

CBDistillery vs. Joy Organics - Divider


The specific ingredients in each of the CBD oil and tincture differ. For CBDistillery, nonetheless, the common ingredients are: 

  • Hemp extract (aerial parts)
  • Cannabigerol (CBG)
  • Fractionated coconut oil (MCT)
  • Natural terpenes

Joy Organics’ CBD oil tinctures are made primarily of: 

  • Organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 0% THC phytocannabinoid-rich hemp
  • Essential oil 

The flavoring ingredients are organic peppermint extract, orange essential oil, and lemon essential oil. 

Winner: It’s a draw again, considering that their ingredients are different, an apples-to-oranges comparison if you will. Both brands also use USDA-certified organic hemp. 

CBDistillery vs. Joy Organics - Divider


Here’s where Joy Organics has a definite edge over CBDistillery! Of course, flavoring is a matter of personal preference, but it must also be said that not every CBD user is into the natural taste of hemp. 

Hemp is a naturally bitter plant, and its extract isn’t any different. Flavoring ingredients added into CBD oils and tinctures are then intended to significantly mask, if not eliminate, hemp’s bitter taste. But the flavoring ingredients shouldn’t also be overpowering. 

CBDistillery offers unflavored and mango-flavored CBD oils. The unflavored version tastes bitter, as can be expected, but it’s tolerable. Besides, you can add it to food and beverages if you’re averse to its bitter taste. 

As for the mango-flavored CBD oil, the mango flavor was enjoyable, but it wasn’t effective in masking the hemp’s bitter taste. It was more like the pleasurable taste of mango for about three seconds, and then the bitter taste comes in. 

Joy Organics offers several flavors: 

  • Unflavored 
  • Lime 
  • Mint 
  • Orange 
  • Lemon 

Like most CBD products, the unflavored version has a slightly bitter taste, particularly when taken sublingually. As for its flavored CBD tinctures, we have to say that Joy Organics did a better job at letting the flavors shine through and masking the bitter taste. 

Refreshing and energizing notes characterize the aromas for the flavored versions with a touch of sweetness. There’s no unpleasant after-taste, but there may be a bit of an oily texture. Just wait for a few minutes, and the oily texture will be gone. 

Winner: Joy Organics takes the entire cake, flavor-wise, in terms of the number of flavors and their pleasant sensations. These are important aspects for both newbies and seasoned users since variety is the spice of life. Plus. Bitter-tasting CBD products can become turn-offs over time.

Independent Test Analysis

Every CBDistillery product has a Q.R. code used for accessing its certificate of analysis (COA) from ACS Laboratory, an independent laboratory. The brand has adopted transparency in this aspect from the start. 

Joy Organics vs CBDistillery fact 2

Joy Organics also uses Q.R. codes on its labels and posts third-party lab results for every batch of raw hemp oil and every finished product. The company also uses several laboratories for its testing. 

Winner: It’s a draw since consumers have quick and easy access to the independent test analysis and their results for every product purchased.

Customer Support

Balanced Health Botanicals, CBDistillery’s parent company, has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. But as is usually the case with most companies, there are some negative reviews from customers. Most of these are related to shipping issues, although these also seem to have been resolved. 

Otherwise, CBDistillery has a generally positive reputation where its customer support services are concerned. A few things to note about the brand’s customer support services: 

  • Orders are shipped within 48 hours after payment processing and approval, and the packages are shipped via UPS. While the company operates on a Monday-Friday basis (9 am-5 pm MST), orders made on a Friday will not be shipped until Monday or Tuesday. You will receive via email your UPS tracking number. 
  • Free shipping is only applicable for orders with a minimum amount of $75 after the sales price or discount has been applied. 
  • While possible with prompt action on the part of the customer, CBDistillery doesn’t guarantee cancellations. But unopened and unused products may be returned within seven days, and refunds can be made. But returns and refunds are only applicable to purchases made on the CBDistillery.com website; purchases from retail stores aren’t covered. 
  • The brand offers a 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee where you can try one of its products and, if you’re not satisfied within two weeks, you can have it exchanged for another product or have its price refunded. 

Customers rave about the customer support services provided by Joy Organics. A few of its notable aspects are: 

  • The 30-day money-back guarantee is among the most generous we’ve seen! You can use an entire bottle of CBD tincture to determine whether it’s a good fit and then ask for a return and full refund. 
  • Products are available on its official website and at its retail stores in Fort Collins, Colorado; Austin, Texas; and Wichita, Kansas. 

We couldn’t find information about its shipping, cancellations, and return policies. 

Winner: CBDistillery has a better suite of customer support services, emphasizing transparency in shipping, returns and refunds, and cancellation policies.

Final Verdict

Based on the table of comparison, CBDistillery is the better choice over Joy Organics in terms of brand reputation, price and promotions, and customer support. Joy Organics, however, has its shining merits, too, particularly in terms of the choices in CBD strengths and flavors. In all other aspects, the brands are neck-and-neck, and it’s an advantage for consumers. 

But since this is a comparison, we must answer the question: Which is the better brand of CBD oils? If the tally is our main tool, then CBDistillery is the winner, particularly as it has great reviews about the efficacy of its products. 

Then again, this isn’t to say that Joy Organics’ CBD tinctures are inferior in quality, efficacy, and safety, far from it! In the end, your choice between these two brands will boil down to your unique needs and wants in CBD products. You may even think about trying each brand’s CBD oil with similar strengths and then determining which one fits in perfectly with your needs.
