How Long Can CBD Hemp Oil Last?

The amount of time it takes to go through a bottle of tincture of high quality CBD hemp oil varies dramatically when each user, as serving sizes can be dramatically different for each person. Still, a common question is how long CBD hemp oil can last from the date of purchase. The last thing users want is to purchase a product, only to be restricted by a "use by" date that forces them to waste the remains of their natural dietary supplement. Let's take a look closer at what we know as to how long CBD hemp oil can last:

How is CBD Hemp Oil Made?

To understand how long a product can last, it's smart to start at the beginning. At Functional Remedies, our professional growers in Colorado harvest organic hemp plants grown from the clones of patented seeds that have the highest level of cannabinoids possible with less than 0.3 percent THC levels. The whole plant – the flowers, leaves and stem materials – are then transported three hours to the company's laboratory, where it is soaked in a gentle lipid infusion to transfer the healing benefits from the plant into a medium of either coconut or MCT oil, depending on the product. The lab technicians test each batch for consistency and potency before adding to the company's collection of CBD oil for sale. Tim Gordon, President of Functional Remedies, has been growing and optimizing hemp plants for CBD oil for nearly 30 years. Currently, his plants consistently produce 400% more cannabinoids and 500% more terpenes than any other CBD oil company’s plants. This enables us to offer CBD oil for sale that is better than anyone else.

Serving Sizes Vary with Each User

As mentioned, serving sizes for CBD hemp oil vary with each user, depending on the person's age, weight, metabolic state and health concerns that the user seeks to address. While independent user reviews and experience may differ, our recommendation is to first decide on the delivery method that is best for you: tincture, capsule or salve. For tincture use, depress the bulb of the dropper once (the dropper itself will fill about halfway) for a single serving. Begin with one serving (one capsule also equals one serving) in the morning and the evening. Try it for a few days and increase mindfully as appropriate. Salves can be used topically as needed.

Very Long Shelf Life

Functional Remedies decided to test to determine how long our products are shelf-stable. We used a third-party laboratory and brought them 25 samples of each product, in the same containers as available for purchase. The lab technicians then exposed all samples except for one to high temperatures and high humidity to simulate the environment a product may face over the course of a month. They then tested each sample for peroxides, which is a chemical byproduct that is detected once lipids (oils) start to break down. Week after week, the products were tested to discover that even after 24 months they were still good. After 2 years, we recommend replacing your product only because the oil may start to taste bad.

Tips to Keep CBD Oil at Home

Once the products are open, it is recommended to keep them in a cool, dry and dark place – like a medicine cabinet with other dietary supplements. High quality CBD hemp oil does not need to be refrigerated, but beware of exposing your products to bacteria, microbes or fungus spores. With the tinctures, be sure not to touch the dropper to your tongue or mouth, as that may introduce germs from your mouth into the cannabis oil. This is especially true if you are using the tincture while caring for pets. Squeeze the dropper on to a spoon instead.
