Does CBD oil have an expiration date?

It most certainly does. From food to supplements to even the moisturizer you put on your face, everything eventually reaches its limit, including CBD.

However, just because something has an expiration or “best by” date doesn’t mean that it actually spoils and becomes unusable at that point. CBD is no exception to this rule.

Most CBD products contain a “best by” or expiration date of one to two years. This is because, at this point, the CBD product might become a little less active. The compound can begin to slightly break down, making it less potent over time. However, it does not become unsafe to consume unless its carrier oil starts to turn rancid. This can happen with the organic hemp seed oil and olive oil used in Bluebird CBD oils blends after several years.

Bluebird Botanicals’ CBD oils will last up to 500 days from when they are blended if stored in a cool, dark place. Alternatively, they will last up to two years if stored in the refrigerator.

If chilled, be sure to restore the oil to room temperature and shake to return its consistency. This is especially important for our Complete or Complete Concentrated as the organic olive oil hardens in the refrigerator. To see when your batch was made, please reference our batch database and cross-reference the batch number located on your bottle.

Also, rest assured that you will most likely use your CBD before it reaches its expiration date. Bluebird’s 1 oz bottles of CBD oil are designed to last 30 days with daily use, so even if you’re an infrequent user, you’ll still likely finish your product well before the expiration date of 500 days.

Good to know. It wasn’t something I’d actually thought about. If someone has the powder that hasn’t been mixed with anything yet, does that expire as well?

Hi! I'm using Concentrated Signature Hemp Extract in the 2 oz. bottle. If I want to take 38mg, would that be 23 drops? 15 drops equals 25 mg? Thanks!
