Welcome to our PlusCBD™ Extra Strength Roll-On review!
For this product review, we sampled the brand’s 500mg, full-spectrum hemp extract roll-on.
As promised by the CV Sciences subsidiary, this terpene- and cannabinoid-rich topical provided a convenient and effective route for addressing various forms of discomfort.
That said, the bar is already set high for this well-reputed, GRAS-certified (Generally Recognized as Safe) brand, so we made sure to leave no detail unscrutinized.

Before we get into the formal review, a quick look at this product’s highlights:
This full-spectrum hemp topical is among the most potent we’ve tried, both in terms of cannabinoid potency and discomfort relief.
PlusCBD™ maintains their usual quality and safety standards in this case, thoroughly testing the Holland-sourced hemp in this roll-on and avoiding harmful additives.
The more concentrated version we sampled was priced at less than $0.10, an impressive line to hold as a top-tier brand.
In the case of this highly concentrated roll-on and every other, we review CBD topicals by the quality of their hemp extract, CBD concentration, product packaging, scent and texture, effectiveness, and value.
As usual, we’ll start today’s review of the PlusCBD™ Oil 500mg Extra Strength Formula Roll-On with the most important dynamic: hemp quality.

All of PlusCBD™ Oil’s hemp is sourced by their parent company (CV Sciences) from farms in Holland.
For hemp and many other crops, Holland is very high on the spectrum of quality, thanks to their renowned agricultural standards.
Furthermore, all the hemp is grown using non-GMO, EU-certified hemp seeds.
Throughout the cultivation process – and naturally, after harvesting – CV Sciences conducts several rounds of testing to ensure hemp quality and safety.
The plant material is then imported to the US, where CV Sciences uses CO2 to extract the oil, which is widely regarded as the CBD industry’s gold standard for its safety and efficiency.
After extraction, products are tested by DB Labs for cannabinoid potency and contaminants (residual solvents, heavy metals, microbes, and more.)
From sourcing to testing, every point under the umbrella of hemp quality and safety is extremely well met by CV Sciences, which is why we consider their hemp quality to be among the highest in the industry.
The full-spectrum hemp roll-on we sampled comes in 200mg or 500mg concentrations.
As mentioned, we sampled the stronger concentration.
According to the certificate of analysis pertaining to our batch, the cannabinoid density of our 500mg product is as follows (total values):
Additionally, the product passed all tests for pesticides, heavy metals, residual solvents, and other potential contaminants.
Overall, CBD concentration is generous, supporting cannabinoid concentration is moderate, and the THC level (0.007%) falls far below the federally mandated maximum (0.3%).
200mg: $27.99 ($0.14/mg)
500mg: $49.99 ($0.10/mg)
The 200mg version of this full-spectrum hemp roll-on retails for $27.99, which reduces to $0.14 per milligram of CBD.
Our 500mg version currently retails for $49.99, which reduces to nearly $0.10 per milligram of CBD.
The former price point is largely unremarkable, but for a high-quality topical such as this, $0.10 or below is fairly attractive.
It’s also helpful that customers don’t have to scale up to a 1000mg or higher product to reach this price point.
Like most other PlusCBD oil products, the full-spectrum hemp roll-on we sampled came in a small box.
Featured on the box are an ingredients list, a small Q&A panel, a mission statement, and a QR code allowing quick access to third-party lab reports.
The tube housing the roll-on contains the same information (minus the Q&A) as the box it’s contained in.
The roll-on applicator never gunked up or faltered, nor did the screw-on lid.
Overall, the packaging was durable, easy to work with, and informative.
Here’s the ingredient list for the full-spectrum roll-on:
Water, isopropyl alcohol, camphor, menthol, glycerin, aucklandia lappa extract, achyranthes bidentata extract, cinnamon extract, poria mushroom extract, licorice extract, hemp extract (aerial parts), hydrolyzed jojoba esters, ethylhexyl olivate, sodium acrylates copolymer, polyglyceryl-4 olivate, cetyl hydroxyethylcellulose, xantham gum
As expected, PlusCBD™ maintained a wide berth around harmful surfactants, parabens, phthalates, and other additives.
The ingredients list is filled with natural extracts, earning top marks from us for quality and safety.
Though more discerning noses may be able to make out some of the natural extracts, this product’s scent is akin to any mentholated, over-the-counter topical ointment (think Bengay).
After application, gentle massaging is recommended to encourage the slightly watery product further into the skin.
More than any other CBD topical we have tried, this particular roll-on is “spicy.”
Seconds after applying, a powerful wave of cooling, tingling sensations overtakes the tissue, persisting for roughly an hour and slowly tapering down in intensity for the following hour or two.
This effect was so strong, it made it harder for us to determine how much the CBD itself helped.
One thing was for certain: we certainly didn’t feel pain during the first hour.
Overall, the product was very effective for acute relief from discomfort.
Let’s start with the pros:
And now the cons:
We recommend this full-spectrum hemp roll-on for anyone looking for fast-acting, potent relief from discomfort.
The hemp is rigorously tested for safety and quality throughout several stages of the cultivation and manufacturing process, so you can feel confident in your investment.
Speaking of, this product is competitively priced, especially when overall quality and potency are factored in.
This PlusCBD™ extra strength hemp roll-on delivers on all fronts, bringing the brand’s high standards of safety, quality, and affordability to an underutilized product type.
It rivals the strongest over-the-counter analgesics when it comes to potency and cannabinoid density.
Samplers and/or newcomers can go with a lower concentration without being gouged, and customers who want more can enjoy even greater savings.
No topical will magically erase the source of your discomfort, but as part of a comprehensive effort, this PlusCBD™ roll-on can help you keep moving the way you need to move.
