Mary’s Medicinals CBD Review
Unlike the other hemp companies we have reviewed so far, Mary’s Medicinals sells marijuana products as well as CBD products. Apparently, ‘Mary’ doesn’t refer to a founder named Mary but is instead an everyman term to describe those seeking natural healing. Mary’s pioneered a product called the Transdermal Cannabis Patch. As we understand it, this is a form of weed patch containing THC and other cannabinoids. It releases therapeutic substances into the body over a span of up to 12 hours. They do not appear to display 3rd party labs on their website, but if most of their products get you high, there’s no need really. When you’re high, you know at least it has the THC in it, so you don’t have to worry about labs so much. We will focus our review on their Remedy oil product. This is one of their products that has little or no psychoactive effect. However, like the other products, Mary’s Medicinals only sell it in states which have legalized medicinal marijuana laws in effect and in practice. However, you can purchase it online from the subsidiary, Mary’s Nutritionals.

So far, we have to reserve judgment on Mary’s Medicinals CBD hemp oil products. We simply were not able to ascertain the 3rd party lab information about the products from the website. However, these products have good distribution at stores in legal medical and recreational marijuana states. So, breaking from protocol, we can forgive them for not having labs readily available because they are expecting you will buy a product at a store in a legal state and then see for yourself how psychoactive it is. Only, for this product, that doesn’t work because it’s one of the non-psychoactive products. You will just have to trust that it contains the CBD levels stated. For the record, the company has invested in expensive lab machines including Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC) testing equipment and they are expanding their labs’ capabilities. This is all well and good for marijuana products where you can know what you got by getting high, but it doesn’t work so well for CBD products. You need to see those labs to know if there’s CBD in it. However, since we have not found complaints about marijuana products, we will assume for now that the Remedy product contains the stated level of cannabinoids.
Description of Mary’s Medicinals CBD Oil
Mary’s Medicinals prices and products
Remedy Oil (15 mL)
Mary’s has a subsidiary called Mary’s Nutritionals. Mary’s Nutritionals appears to deal mainly in hemp products with less than 0.3% THC; therefore, theoretically, these can ship all over the US. Remedy Oil is included under this banner so you might be able to get it even if you live in a state which does not have liberal medical marijuana laws. CBD hemp oil drops can hypothetically be sold in all states but I haven’t yet seen that claim made on either website, Mary’s Medicinals, or Mary’s Nutritionals. However, we would say the risk is low of facing prosecution for having a CBD hemp oil product.
- Hemp extract (500 mg of extract)Cannabidiol and over one hundred other cannabinoids can be found in the hemp extracts. Cannabinoids have demonstrated analgesic, anti-anxiety, and anti-inflammatory effects in studies. Hemp extract also contains terpenoids and is suspended in healthy fatty acids. One drop of Remedy oil contains 2 mg of hemp extract. Full-spectrum extracts have in some studies been shown to be more effective than isolated cannabidiol alone. Mary’s Medicinals CBD, terpenes, vitamins, and fatty acids all enhance the action of the hemp extract. This is called the entourage effect. Believe it or not, this oil is based on the anointing oil used in the Old Testament. Cost: $ 80Gotta say that’s quite a bit of damage there, but this does appear to be a concentrated, high-quality oil, even despite the lack of 3rd party labs.
- Low THC (less than 0.3%) Hemp oil hemp oil is a source of vitamins, minerals, healthy fatty acids, and other phytonutrients.
- Almond OilAlmond oil has healthy fatty acids. Eating almonds have been observed to help lower blood sugar and help spur weight loss.
- Cinnamon Leaf Oil, Cinnamon Bark OilCinnamon is known to help control and lower blood sugar.
- MyrrhMyrrh has antibiotic and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Natural TerpenoidsTerpenoids boost the effects of cannabinoids and add to the anti-inflammatory effect.
Mary’s Nutritionals Elite Patch, no THC
This patch is a marvel. It is made with industrial hemp, low THC, and delivers 10 mg of hemp extract. At least one of our social media friends have found the patch to be active and effective. The patch is said to be effective for up to 12 hours. It can bring relief from anxiety and tension for a full day, all of your waking hours essentially.
- Terpenes: Enhances the action of cannabinoids and has anti-inflammatory properties of its own.
- Sunflower Lecithin: this is used as anything from brain food to skin moisturizer. It is extensively used in health supplements due to containing substances that appear to improve memory and brain function.
- Propylene Glycol: Not irritating to the skin. Maybe a factor in the time-release aspect of the product.
- Oleic Acid: this is an omega-9 monounsaturated fatty acid. It is commonly associated with the health benefits derived from olive oil.
- Full Spectrum Hemp Extract: This is the main active component. There is 10 mg per patch.
- Eucalyptus: One of the most popular health plants of all time. It’s known for use on skin irritation and to relieve muscle pain and tension.
- Acrylic Adhesive: This is what makes the patch stick to the skin.
Mary’s Medicinals Transdermal Patch, with THC
This is the real gem for sure. You can get it with a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. It could provide pain relief for eight to twelve hours. We know of no other delivery system this advanced. At least one Reddit user has verified that they feel this delivery system is working when they put it on. One user said it took two hours to work. Mary’s Medicinals says the patch takes about 20 minutes to kick in. In any case, this is an incredibly interesting way to get your THC and/or CBD.

Mary Nutritionals products can be bought online and shipped anywhere in the United States.
The potency report looks good but it was done by the in-house lab. Perhaps they built their credibility so long ago they don’t see the need to display independent testing. We will be waiting for 3rd party labs, but everything looks good from where we stand now.

Mary’s Nutritionals started in 2015. They are the THC-free branch of the parent company Mary’s Medicinals, which started in 2013. Since lax marijuana laws are relatively new in the United States, that means they jumped at the first opportunity to set up farms and a company and really capitalized on it. They got great distribution in medical marijuana states, and Mary’s Nutritionals branch can ship non-psychoactive industrial hemp products all throughout the United States.

Remedy Oil is available in marijuana dispensaries all over the country, in weed-friendly states. Mary’s Medicinals products cannot be purchased online but can be found at pot shops in these states:
On Mary’s Medicinals’ website, there is a store locator to help you find stores that sell Mary’s Medicinals products and there is no lack of stores. For example, the closest outlet to the state of Georgia is:

We give Mary’s Medicinals a few points for having such a functional website. This company seems to know what it is and what it is doing. This may be the only time we relax our ‘gotta have 3rd party labs’ rule. If you are concerned about the cannabinoid content of a Mary’s Medicinals product, have it tested or ask for the in-house and 3rd party lab results for the batch number you have. It appears that Mary’s Medicinals has good customer service just from looking at the website but we will see further down, what, if anything, our social media friends have to say about the customer service. Since most products are sold in stores, this would be mostly dealing with general questions about the products or ordering issues from Mary’s Nutritionals.
We asked Mary’s Medicinals for third-party labs and received the following response:
All of our products are third-party tested as well as tested in house. This information is shared as requested. Is there a particular product you purchased or are interested in? Also, which state are you located in, as they vary a bit state by state?
This confirms the company has been doing this for years and do in fact have their customer service down packed. We were pleased with this response and will be awaiting labs for the Remedy oil and the transdermal patch.
“Our Mary’s Nutritionals are high quality, organically cultivated hemp-derived products available for purchase at https://marysnutritionals.com These products are able to be shipped directly to you in Georgia.
The raw material used for our Activated Hemp Extract is sourced from high quality, organic hemp plants grown in Colorado. Legally, these plants must contain less than 0.3% THC. Since we use the full spectrum of the plant and try to process it as little as possible to preserve its integrity, the oil may contain trace amounts of THC.
I will get the 3rd party info and send it over as soon as I have it. We do have us in house testing results online for each item if you would like to take a look at those in the meantime, links below.
Also, just to let you know, we currently have to buy one get one 1/2 off on our Remedy Oil with code HOLISTIC HOLIDAY this is through the end of December. So the price comes down to $60/bottle!”
Again, very professional. You can tell this is a well-managed company. We will be awaiting labs but for now, we give the company an A rating, pending an A+ once the labs are in.
Standout Features of Mary’s Medicinals CBD Hemp Oil Drops
Low to no THC
Although to be certain, Mary’s Medicinals sell products that contain enough THC to get you high, the Remedy product has less than 0.3% THC, making it a CBD Hemp oil product and not a marijuana product. It is derived from industrial hemp with low THC levels. Some will claim this is legal in all 50 states, but check the laws of your jurisdiction to be sure. Mary’s Medicinals will not sell even Remedy to you online, but you can purchase it from Mary’s Nutritionals online. All the products under Mary’s Nutritional brand are made from non-psychoactive hemp, even though they may look just like the marijuana products. They have a transdermal patch called the Elite Transdermal Patch and we are endlessly impressed with the ingenuity.
Products with THC
Mary’s Medicinals is famous for its Transdermal Patch which contains 1:1 THC: CBD. We are absolutely impressed by this product. Though the efficacy has not been studied, it is at the least a noble attempt. If it is effective, it could be a breakthrough. These patches can supposedly deliver therapeutic benefits for up to 12 hours. You could be covered for all of your waking hours with one patch.
Figure 1. This is the magical hemp patch. It can get pricey but is an amazing realization.
Risks and Side Effects
Mary’s Nutritionals Remedy oil should technically not cause any psychoactive effect. However, on Mary’s Medicinals website, it says Remedy confers “minimal to no psychoactive effect”. This gave us pause. We are wondering now since this is the same product sold on Mary’s Nutritionals site, does it have no psychoactive effect. We have tested products that should have no psychoactive effect and got effects. It does happen. It may not be due to THC as people who use plant medicines often take other supplements, caffeine, and other medications, and CBD could change the metabolism of those meds, and then it would be the other medications or caffeine causing the psychoactive effect but aided by the cannabinoids. So, let’s say there could be a slight risk of side effects. Curiously, on Mary’s Nutritionals website information page about Remedy, it does not mention that there could be ‘minimal’ psychoactive effect. In any case, we would gander that it is not dangerous but be sure to get the labs. Make is sure the THC level is low so that you don’t fail a drug test. CBD is easy to take and you could take a lot of it CBD oil without ever feeling sick and that could equal some THC building up in your system.

Mary’s Medicinals CBD Oil reviews
Review Rating: A. “CBD has been helping…”
This Facebook user is using CBD oil for non-medical anxiety and sleeplessness in a child who has ASD. She finds that it is helping during the night time.
Review Rating: B-. “I see an improvement in my sleeping but…”
This Facebook user also gets improved sleep, so that seems to be a theme for this product. However, he felt no significant relief from anxiety.
Review Rating: D. “No response…What’s going on?”
This Facebook finds no results for her child in anxiety or stress behavior. However, it looks like she may be expecting too much. Products from Mary’s Nutritionals are not medications to treat autism, they are supplements for stress, anxiety, and sleep. For medications, she would have to get a prescription from the doctor and then visit one of the dispensaries which carry the medical products. It’s a thin line. Products containing THC can be sold as medicines in medical marijuana states. Products from industrial hemp CBD oils cannot be sold as medicines. For prescription CBD one would have to get a prescription for Epidiolex, the only approved CBD only medication in the United States.
Review Rating: A. “a patch really works well…”
We found it irresistible to find out what people think about the transdermal patch. This user finds it effective for everyday tension. Only time will tell if they will do the studies to determine how well the patch delivers CBD, but it is very impressive.
We get the impression that these products are definitely active, though results vary as with any supplement.
Q&A about Mary’s Medicinals CBD
Yes, industrial hemp is legal.
Mary’s Nutritionals industrial hemp used for their hemp products is grown in Lovelace, Colorado on lush farmland. Mary’s Nutritionals claims to use flower buds for their products, which pack a much greater punch in terms of cannabinoids and terpenes than hemp seed oil.
This was our sticking point. We discovered they do indeed use 3rd party lab testing and those labs are available upon request. We would prefer that they publish all the labs on their website or with a lab results reporting system like Confident Cannabis, but this will do. Mary’s Medicinals is a well-established and well-trusted company.
Up to 12 hours. One Facebook user complained that the patch appeared to take two hours to kick in. We have not confirmed this but look out for this effect if using the patch and let us know if it is true. For the record, Mary’s Medicinals claims the effects will kick in within 20 minutes.
No. The industrial hemp products are not pot. They do have pot products, so if you want to avoid that, just be sure to get your products from the subsidiary, Mary’s Nutritionals. None of these products are psychoactive.
This is an old, well-established, and responsive company. They have smoothed out all the kinks and are making innovative products from both hemp and marijuana. Think about it, a marijuana patch. It’s a glorious idea and apparently, it delivers on health benefits. We have requested third-party labs and have been promised a response but we are ready to make a ruling. Mary’s Medicinal doesn’t need us to sing their praises. They are already widely distributed in medical marijuana states as well as having the subsidiary Mary’s Nutritionals which can ship non-psychoactive industrial hemp products nationally. Their customer service is good. They seem to have a laser focus on the science of CBD and have some mad scientists coming up with incredible products. Mary’s Medicinal’s Remedy oil is a must buy. Let us know what results you get from the product.
