If you’re reading this article, you’ve probably experienced the therapeutic benefits of CBD oil for issues such as stress-reduction, pain-management, mood enhancement and more first-hand. Most likely, you’ve also experienced the difficulty in finding reliable CBD drops and tinctures. Because the FDA has yet to regulate CBD, companies online and in-stores often get away with making unsubstantiated claims in their marketing and with selling products that contain low quality ingredients, inconsistent potency and even mind-altering THC, which is not normally found in most high-quality CBD products.
We’ve created The Genie’s Best CBD Drops and Tinctures Gift Guide to highlight products we feel are worth buying for yourself or someone you care about. We hope this list saves you the time, money and aggravation of scouring the internet, gas stations and head shops for CBD drops and tinctures that you can trust.

When former professional athletes Matt Lombardi and Kevin Moran had their careers cut short by injuries, they discovered the wonders of CBD for pain management. In an effort to make CBD accessible to everyone, they started Beam, which produces traditional CBD tincture drops as well as topical cream and even infused protein bars. Beam CBD oil can be purchased in natural or mint flavor and comes in four different strengths (250mg, 500mg, 1000mg, and 1500mg). Their slogan “No THC, Just TLC” is reassuring to athletes who rely on CBD to sooth their overworked bodies and are frequently drug tested. What really sets Beam apart from other CBD manufacturers is that they have physical pop-up stores, like the one in Boston’s Seaport District, where CBD tincture is on-tap for sampling. This is a refreshing change of pace for CBD customers used to doing business with seemingly faceless online entities.
