Binoid Water-Soluble CBD Drops Peppermint (500mg) First-Hand Review
Smell (Irrelevant to Effects)
Upon opening the bottle, the Binoid Water-Soluble CBD Wellness Drops (500mg) in the Peppermint flavor smell really refreshing and minty, like the sweet mint (sometimes also known as yerba buena) varieties more so than a true spicy peppermint. The smell isn’t overpowering, but its definitely pleasant and refreshingly apparent as soon as it’s exposed to air.
Taste (Irrelevant to Effects)
Judging by the sweet and relatively unassuming smell, we expected these to have a milder mint flavor. Instead, these drops yielded an immediate rush of strong, decidedly-sweetened peppermint. The flavor definitely isn’t bad, but it is definitely intense. One tester described her sublingual dose perfectly, saying, “it leaves your mouth feeling as if you just used green Listerine,” but without the burning sensation associated with alcohol.
This intensity was a bit much for many of our more sensitive testers, but it’s mediated well when added to a hot or cold beverage. It was especially pleasant added to warm black tea, as it added just the right touch of sweetness and mint to compliment the beverage perfectly. We could also see it being used to create peppermint mocha, matcha, and green tea drinks, or even a refreshing mint julep.
These drops are on the thin side, but not so runny that measuring is difficult or messy. The drops, which are a milky white, mix completely and effortlessly into beverages (we tried hot and cold), rather than floating on top like traditional oily tinctures. When taken sublingually, they feel pretty light and don’t leave behind any oily residue or filmy feeling on the mouth, just a rush of sweet peppermint flavor.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity
We used these Water-Soluble CBD Drops – Peppermint from Binoid first thing in the morning before a busy day. One dropper full (16.6mg) mixed into tea replaced our usual CBD dose of 20 mg, which we use to combat anxiety and reduce our stress response throughout the day.
It took about 20 minutes to finish the beverage we made, and another 45 or so before we began to feel the slow onset of effects. An increasing ability to focus and a sense of calm soon overtook what was before a pretty shaky morning. Two hours after our dose, it was very apparent that the CBD was keeping anxiety at bay and the mental clarity and focus provided seemed to be at its peak.
These drops made for a smooth, easy transition into the afternoon, with no need for our “take-when-needed” dose of anxiety medication. After about 5 hours, however, we could tell the effects were starting to taper away, feeling the grip of anxiety tightening around us while writing an afternoon to-do list. A second dose, sublingually this time, helped release this feeling pretty quickly. We may have been too busy to notice the onset, but noted at 1.5 hours after dosing that the calm, steady focus had returned to help us through the entire afternoon.
Ultimately, this product worked well for us against anxiety and panic, offering effects comparable to our usual dose. That said, those effects were of a (slightly) shorter duration, though they also seemed to take effect a bit more quickly than traditional tinctures, especially when taken sublingually.
Best Used For
These CBD Wellness Drops from Binoid offer all the benefits of CBD, and make a great choice for anyone who isn’t a fan of the direct dosing style of sublingual tinctures and would prefer to mix their dose into their favorite drink. According to existing research, CBD may be useful for a range of conditions, including Crohn’s Disease, PTSD, arthritis, insomnia, and even cancer, though the most popular uses are for anxiety, pain, and inflammation. Because it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system on a cellular level, many people find that it helps with multiple symptoms simultaneously.
Best Used With
These wellness drops offer the full benefits of a systemic CBD product, and provided plenty of relief when used alone. However, we believe that a full-coverage, synergistic CBD routine includes multiple products that compliment each other, and choosing a product to use alongside these drops is dependent on your needs.
For instance, a CBD topical, like SeaBeDee Muscle and Joint Relief Cream, may pair well with these drops to provide targeted relief from aches and pains in the muscles and joints. A vaporizer, like the one from Joy Organics, act quickly but are relatively short-lived, helping bridge the gap between the time you take the tincture dose and the time it kicks in.
Value/Price of the Water-Soluble CBD Drops
These CBD Wellness Drops cost $59.99 from Binoid, which means you’d pay about $0.12 per milligram of CBD (or about $1.99 per 16.6 mg dose). We think this is a fair price that’s squarely in line with comparable tinctures (traditional formulas, that is) in the same dosage strength. For instance, CBDfx 500mg Lemon Lime Mint CBD Tincture costs $0.15 per milligram, or $75 per bottle.
There are many CBD tinctures to choose from, but the water soluble design of the CBD drops make them unique. You can’t find many options like this on the market right now, especially with such bright, fresh flavors like the ones offered by Binoid. If you prefer a water soluble tincture with no added flavor, you might try Ambary Gardens Water Soluble CBD Extract.

First Hand Review
I definitely love my binoid drops AND the company! I went a week without my drops when I went on a cruise because cbd drops are not allowed on a cruise. I hated that because I had to resort to tylenol and/or ibuprophen for my pain, and it did not help near as effectively as the binoid cbd drops. When I got home I opened a new bottle I had receivedRead more about review stating Binoid drops the week before, and it had something red in it. I went on the website and had a chat with a service rep and they told me that they would gladly replace it and expedite shipping. I got it within 3 days and they also sent me another bottle of the ginger drops as well as the peppermint drops they were replacing! To say I am impressed with their quick service and their way of handling the whole situation is putting it very mildly! I didn't even have to send back the bottle that was bad. So quick, easy, smooth, and the greatest customer service!!! These drops help me manage my pain so much more effectively than any over the counter pain medicine or even any prescription meds. And, I feel so much better taking these knowing I do not have to worry about bad side effects!
