Hemp oil has been used for a serious period of time now and that time has allowed scientists to research all its positive effects on the human body. Some of the most notable are pain management, stress and anxiety relief, mood support, and overall immune system boosting. Patients with various illnesses have been looking for a more natural solution to their issues and with the rise of CBD products this solution seems closer than ever. R and R (or R+R) Medicinals is a company that has recently appeared on the cannabinoid stage with its first two hemp oils – the 300 mg and 1000 mg hemp oil extracts. Those almost immediately received a warm welcoming by most users since their effect was natural and potent. The product grew particularly famous within the borders of the USA since it is home-grown and follows most regulations typical to the country.
Our Verdict: We recommend the Hemp oil from R and R Medicinals for everyone who deals with either stress on a daily basis, pain, anxiety, or skin issues. The 300 mg extract is ideal for people who want a mild effect which will help normalize their condition over time rather than as fast as possible, as it will happen with the 1000 mg version.

Features That Make It Stand Out
One of the first things that users learn about R and R Medicinals is that they are a new company which looks to have a great first run in the CBD industry. They have put out two products which are both hemp oil extracts but they vary from each other in the concentration of cannabidiol. One of them has 300 mg of CBD while the other has 1000 mg. We will be reviewing the 300 mg version but anything we say will pretty much be equally valid for the bigger supplement as well.
First, let’s start with a little more information about the company and what they do.
More About R and R Medicinals
Even though this is a new company they are already making a big splash in the CBD world and users from all over the country have been reporting that their CBD drops are one of the best price to value products out there currently. Even though people mostly get the 300 mg version, the 1000 mg one is such a great deal as it is twice as expensive but has more than three times the amount of CBD.
Having two concentrations of CBD in two different products is a good marketing idea as well, meaning that R+R understand their customers well. Most people aren’t after a strong effect and want something sustainable that can be taken on a daily basis. A 300 mg of CBD in a 30ml bottle is exactly that. On top of the good concentration, they even added a flavor making this our first flavored CBD drops product of our top 10 list. The flavor itself isn’t anything special (peppermint) and is what the industry has settled upon to be the standard.
What R+R are very proud of is that their crops are organic and home-grown meaning that the hemp plant grows outside (not in a greenhouse as most others) in the state of Colorado.
They have a “from seed to plant” policy meaning that nothing is imported and every part of the production process is happening on own soil. Colorado is slowly turning into the go-to place for companies to grow their hemp as it has the perfect environmental conditions. Other states are also used for production but not as much.
The company also claims that there is extensive testing taking place at their production plant but that part isn’t as transparent as the others and therefore we cannot vouch for that. Most (if not all) companies claim such things but not many show you the actual documents of the testings. Some companies even include third-party testings to their products which if made public is a great selling point and makes people trust their brand a lot.
Extraction And Properties
For the extraction, R+R medicinals use a “cutting edge” CO2 process which doesn’t use solvents to extract CBD from the hemp plant. On top of that it creates a pure cbd oil which has no traces of THC making it ideal for people who work in places which have drug tests. The company claims that they do third-party testings on every batch but there is no proof anywhere for that so we are going to assume that isn’t done.
Due to the lack of THC there is no psychotropic effect here, making this product legal in all 50 states. This is great, since most other products have difficulties being legal everywhere. This, on the other hand, ships to all corners of the country. Not to mention this shipping is often free, depending on the deal you get.
The extract itself contains essential omega fatty acids and peppermint oil for the taste. On top of that there are phytonutrients, natural terpenes, antioxidants, and even flavonoids in the mix. This makes for a healthy cocktail which is capable of dealing with a long list of conditions.
The serving size is roughly 30 drops which contain 10 mg of CBD. In a 30 ml bottle that makes 30 doses enough to last for 30 days if you take one each day (as recommended). Still, before taking it you need to consult your physician, especially if you are on other medications since CBD interacts badly with other conventional drugs.
The Effect[ichcpt id=”93″]
The effect here is pretty wide. People take this hemp oil for a variety of reasons but the main ones remain:
- Sleep Issues (such as insomnia)
- Weakened Immune System
- Bad Skin and Hair Condition
Influencing all these conditions is possible thanks to the full spectrum of ingredients inside make possible by the CO2 extraction process. On top of that, the fact that there are omega fatty acids thrown in the mix helps with pain and inflammation even more.
Even though they are stated on the box you will be getting, we wanted to make it clear as well as it is valid for all other CBD drops too. Before taking any CBD drops product you need to shake it well and fill the whole dropper. Most oils will have a dropper that feels exactly one serving. In this case, this CBD product has a dropper that fits 20 mg of CBD (2 ml of liquid) which are two daily servings. This is why you only need to fill half the dropper.
Once you fill it up squeeze it under your tongue and hold the drops there for around a minute before swallowing. If you want a stronger effect you can take two servings each day but by doing that the 30 ml bottle will only be enough for 15 days. Remember that the more you use CBD the more pronounced its effects will be on your body so we encourage you to take smaller doses over a longer period of time. You still need to always consult your doctor about the correct treatment course, though.
Every CBD product needs to be stored away from direct sunlight and in a dry and cool place, as cannabidiol loses its potency if stored in a warm or sunny place.
