The only difference is the amount of CBD suspended in the oil. Both formulas are 30 mL, but Balance contains 300 mg of CBD and Relieve has 600 mg of CBD. Relieve is slightly stronger in flavor and an overall better value.
By ingesting sublingually (under the tongue where many capillaries reside), the active ingredient of a tincture—in this case, hemp-derived CBD—reaches the bloodstream more quickly and bypasses absorption barriers like the intestines for maximum efficacy.
300 mg Balance contains 10 mg of CBD per 1 ml dropper (2.5 mg of CBD per 1/4 ml serving). A bottle contains 120 servings.
600 mg Relieve contains 20 mg of CBD per 1 ml dropper (5 mg of CBD per 1/4 ml serving). A bottle contains 120 servings.
1200 mg Relieve contains 40 mg of CBD per 1 ml dropper (10 mg of CBD per 1/4 ml serving). A bottle contains 120 servings.
Since it contains twice the CBD as Balance, the flavor of 600 mg Relieve may be slightly stronger than 300 mg Balance, and 1200 mg Recover has an even stronger flavor. Our tinctures contain only 100% USDA Certified Organic MCT Oil (Coconut Oil) and extract derived from 100% USDA Certified Organic Hemp.
Hemp-derived CBD can be extracted through several means, some of which require alcohol or other harsh solvents. Our proprietary method of flash-activation and gentle thermal extraction requires only certified organic plant material. This process ensures the highest levels of naturally occurring terpenes and phytocannabinoids, the beneficial compounds responsible for the “entourage effect.” The CBD-rich hemp extract is combined with MCT (USDA Certified Organic Coconut Oil) for a truly full-spectrum tincture.
It’s a step of processing—specifically, it’s the method of decarboxylation—that preserves the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes as they naturally occur in the source plant material.
Like all BLOOM FARMS CBD products, our CBD tinctures are meticulously lab-tested for quality and safety.
We lab-test multiple times throughout the hemp growing and extraction process: During growth, the hemp plants are tested for pesticides; after extraction, the CBD tincture is re-tested for pesticides and additionally tested for heavy metals, microbes and solvents.
We feel our products are priced well… in line with the market. But since not all CBD tinctures are created equal, each BLOOM FARMS CBD tincture is an exceptional value because of a few key differentiators:
It’s important to know where CBD is sourced from. One industrial use for some hemp is phytoremediation, a process that uses plants to filter contaminants like heavy metals out of soil… because of this, it’s crucial that the CBD tincture you ingest is derived from hemp plants that are responsibly grown in clean soil.
Our CBD tinctures are made in the USA and derived from a special strain of high-CBD hemp cultivated specifically for this purpose.
Our gentle thermal extraction process that uses zero solvents. “Flash activation” preserves the source plant’s full cannabinoid and terpene profile to ensure a truly full-spectrum extract.
Our hemp is organically grown with biodynamic farming practices, which means it’s cultivated with a unique zero-waste process that is ecological and ethical.
All of the hemp for our CBD tinctures is grown in the USA (with ethical and ecologically sound biodynamic farming practices) specifically for use in CBD tinctures. Unique zero-waste cultivation recreates the most ideal growing environment.
We use only gentle thermal extraction and flash activation to craft our full-spectrum tinctures. Only heated air comes in contact with the organic material—no alcohol or other solvents. “Flash activation” preserves the source plant’s cannabinoids and full terpene profile for a truly full-spectrum CBD tincture.
The exceptional quality of the full terpene profile is evident in the distinctive taste of our tincture. Free of artificial colors and flavors, its earthy unfiltered flavor indicates that it’s all-natural and full-spectrum.
When you’re done, seal tightly and store in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. The included duster bag is good for keeping the bottle clean and discreet when you travel or are on the go.
Our CBD tinctures start with unique strains of high-CBD hemp (grown in the USA with innovative zero-waste cultivation techniques) specifically for use in CBD tinctures.
Only the finest 100% USDA Certified Organic Industrial Hemp is selected for the proprietary extraction process that uses gentle thermal extraction with zero solvents. “Flash activation” preserves the source plant’s full cannabinoid and terpene profile to ensure a truly full-spectrum CBD-rich hemp extract.
The whole-plant hemp extract is combined with 100% USDA Certified Organic MCT Oil (Coconut Oil), which was chosen as a carrier because of its natural antimicrobial properties and pleasantly neutral flavor that doesn’t mask the natural essence of the extract.
Ethically grown with ecologically sound biodynamic farming practices, our hemp and CBD tinctures are meticulously lab-tested for safety and consistency.
Tincture - Usage Guidelines
Since our tinctures are made using the whole plant and are rich in active compounds, harmless natural discoloration or sedimentation may occur. Our tinctures have an official shelf life of one year. We recommend that you always store the tincture in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
The standard serving size of our tinctures is 1/4 mL.
Generally speaking, it is common for users to begin with 1 serving and increase the number of servings consumed at a time until a desired effect is achieved. Some people will find benefit with just our single serving size (2.5 mg using Balance, 5 mg using Relieve or 10 mg using Recover), but it is also common for users to consume CBD in increments of 10 mg, 20 mg or 50 mg at a time. This is why best results are achieved by starting with the smallest serving size and increasing the number of servings over time until the desired effect is attained.
An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects, so it is not uncommon for users to ingest 50 mg or more depending on the intent of use.
Determining the “ideal” number of servings for an individual depends on several factors, including body chemistry, weight, health, prescription medications, sensitivity to CBD and desired effect.
We cannot provide individualized usage guidelines.
Many people add CBD to their recipes. There are many books and online resources to explore adding CBD to your food.
Both are breath-activated. Simply inhale to vaporize. The heating element gently warms the oil to create potent, flavorful vapor and deliver the perfect serving every time. No preheating required! The LED indicator tip glows after seven seconds to indicate a full inhale. The CBD Vapor Battery quickly recharges with the included USB charger in about an hour.
The CBD Vapor Battery is rechargeable up to 300 times with a battery capacity of 350mAH and operates at a range of ~3.3V-4.2V. It quickly recharges in about an hour with the included USB charger. A battery typically lasts for an entire cartridge on a single charge and comes partially charged, so it's ready to use out of the box. Batteries are compatible with most 510-thread cartridges.
Do not use high-powered batteries with Bloom Farm CBD cartridges.
Our product are meticulously lab-tested multiple times throughout the process to ensure clean, great-tasting oil that exceeds state pesticide standards and is thoroughly tested for heavy metals, microbes, etc.
Chief Scientist Michael Coffin says, “There are metals and trace pesticides in almost everything that we consume. Sadly, there is environmental contamination in our entire food supply chain. Making sure it is below the very strict levels set by the state in which it was manufactured is the critical point.”
For more specific information and analysis reports (COAs) for all of our products, check out our Test Results page.
Each variety of Mini Vapor Pen and Vapor Oil Cartridge is filled with 0.5 g of hemp oil that contains 250 mg CBD. The rest of the oil is comprised of other cannabinoids (including CBC, CBG and CBN) and other plant compounds.

CBD General Info
A CBD regimen is said to encourage ideal mind-body balance and an overall sense of wellness. We named the products Balance, Relieve and Recover in an effort to capture the benefits many people attribute to hemp-derived CBD.
A lot of people associate CBD with mind-body balance, wellness and calm. It’s also often chosen to encourage evening relaxation, restful sleep or post-exercise relief.
To understand CBD, we always start by talking about the endocannabinoid system or “ECS.”
The ECS is a complex system in the human body that is understood to modulate all physiological processes throughout the brain and body, including the management of appetite, pain, sleep and mood. The purpose of this system is whole-body homeostasis (or balance), the optimal state for maintaining health and natural healing.
Cannabinoids like CBD interact with the ECS by binding directly or indirectly to ECS receptors and acting like chemical messengers to turn on or turn off physiologic signaling in the body.
Whole-body homeostasis means the body can concentrate on what it does best: natural healing and an overall sense of wellness.
Because everyone is different and there are many contributing factors, we can’t give specific effects or results any single individual will experience.
Users might experience the effects of CBD differently. Many people use it to achieve mind-body balance. They say it contributes to their general feeling of wellness. A lot of people use it for relaxation and restful sleep, and some use it for relief after exercise.
“How effective” CBD is comes down to a user’s individualized wants or needs. For some, an appreciable or noticeable effect is not the goal. For those with goals in mind, feeling the desired effects is a clear indicator that CBD is “working.”
We suggest taking stock of your general sense of wellness before starting, then re-assessing a month later. Some questions people ask themselves might include: How’s my mood lately? How does my body feel? Is my mind-body balance good or does it feel off? Do I feel generally well?
Terpenes are natural compounds that serve a variety of purposes, including forming a plant’s distinctive flavor and aroma profile, which can range from earthy and pungent to sweet and fruity. Though terpenes are found throughout nature, the plant family cannabaceae is unique because it can express a wide variety of terpenes to create complex and distinctive flavor profiles.
CBD isolate is CBD separated from the plant’s other compounds. “Whole-plant CBD”—also called full-spectrum CBD—is CBD extract that contains the source plant’s other cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes. Similarly, broad-spectrum CBD contains most of the original plants material but not everything. In the case of hemp-derived CBD, broad-spectrum generally refers to products that are free of THC.
Our position reflects what research suggests: Whole-plant extracts are more beneficial because of the entourage effect. Based on the idea that the effectiveness of CBD is enhanced by the “entourage effect,” our full-spectrum and broad-spectrum hemp-derived CBD products contain most or all of the cannabinoids and beneficial terpenes of their source plants.
All BLOOM FARMS CBD products are designed to be as close to the source plant as possible.
The widely used term “micro-dosing” refers to the practice of consuming small amounts of CBD at a time, often at increased frequency throughout the day. A “micro” amount typically refers to a serving size ranging from a fraction to 2.5 mg of CBD. Since less is typically more with CBD, users can benefit from taking smaller amounts more often as opposed to a large amount all at once. This way, a constant amount of CBD remains in the body throughout the day instead of being metabolized and eliminated just a few hours after use.
Unlike THC, CBD is non-intoxicating and non-euphorigenic. Hemp-derived CBD contains only trace amounts of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), so tinctures derived from it are not likely to produce THC effects either.
An average human can tolerate 20 mg per kilogram of body weight on a daily basis without experiencing negative effects. CBD is known to be alerting and energizing at very small amounts (1-2.5 mg) and known to cause drowsiness at extremely high amounts (100 mg to 1 g).
That said, some individuals have reported “altered” states of mind, light-headedness, imbalance and drowsiness at varying serving amounts… and at very high amounts, some users have reported gastrointestinal (GI) upset. It is not clear whether these effects are due to placebo, the CBD or possibly other plant compounds.
If you feel you have an adverse experience, stop using the tincture immediately, seek medical attention if warranted and consult with a trusted medical professional.
If an altered state or drowsiness is experienced, it’s important to avoid driving, operating heavy machinery or using sharp or other dangerous tools.
Some users have reported drowsiness. For some, this is not perceived as a negative effect, and they prefer to consume CBD in the evening at home or before bed.

We created a daily tracker that can be used to help you “Find Your Balance.”
With CBD, more is not always more. Research suggests that the effects can lessen when using too much and/or too often. When CBD is used for notable effects and the effects are no longer appreciated, it may be beneficial to cease use for 2-3 days. This is typically enough time for the body to reset and any notable effects to return.
Research and talk with your doctor before making a decision to use CBD.
