NanoCraft is a brand that offers a well-rounded range of CBD based products. They claim to utilize nano-emulsion technology to enhance the absorption rate up to four times the amount compared to regular CBD oil, by reducing it into nano-sized particles. NanoCraft currently does not offer any CBD vapes, but it’s good to see that they are doing something to compensate for the fact that tinctures are less bioavailable than vaping.

They call their products “full spectrum” but they do not actually contain THC. Personally, I would call them broad spectrum, which means they contain a range of cannabinoids, with the exception of THC. This provides the entourage effect without the psychoactive effects. It seems like they are committed to providing the best CBD oil, capsules and topicals. The lab test results look clean, and are proudly displayed on their website.

NanoCraft actually offers four varieties of MCT-based CBD oils. One of them is their Pure formula, which contains 25 mg CBD per mL and has a light ginger lemon flavor. The other one is their Gold series, which comes in 1000, 2000 and 3000 mg strengths. The two I received are their Day and Night formulas, which contain 300 mg each. All of their tinctures utilize a signature blend of CBD oil, which goes through a unique process that reduces it into nano-sized particles. I can’t personally verify this technology, but the lab test results are looking really good. I can only try them out and share my experience.
The first tincture I tried was their Day formula. The bottle contains 300 mg of nano-amplified CBD, or 10 mg per mL. It contains the full gamut of cannabinoids and terpenes. It’s formulated with B-12, CoQ10, ashwagandha, rhodiola, L-theanine and organic caffeine. The extra ingredients are supposed to provide energy and focus. I’m not going to skip my daily cup of joe, but I’ll consider it as an extra caffeine boost. I’ve read some customer reviews and apparently people enjoy adding it to their coffee. I think the most effective way is to take it sublingually, which is how I will be taking it.
I can’t verify their NanoPlex technology, but the effects were noticeable to me. That says a lot considering that each mL contains only 10 mL CBD. I did take a double dose, because I am used to having anywhere from 20-30 mg of CBD. It also has a pleasant and fresh scent. It’s supposed to taste like chocolate mint, but I definitely taste more mint than chocolate. It doesn’t have a very strong cannabis taste either like many other tinctures. I actually really enjoy the taste. I might have to try blending it in to my coffee some time. I didn’t notice a huge energy boost, but it didn’t make me sleepy either.
The other tincture I tested was their Night formula. I wasn’t crazy about the aftertaste on this one—it has kind of a floral and citrusy flavor. It doesn’t taste like weed or anything, more like actual flowers. The bottle contains 300 mg of their signature CBD oil blend, plus proprietary ingredients including melatonin, 5-HTP and passionflower. I’ve used melatonin before and, from my experience, it doesn’t take a lot of it to help give me a good night’s sleep. This tincture contains only 2 mg of melatonin per mL, but if you take 2 mL of the tincture, the 4 mg is decent. I usually take 5 mg melatonin pills, but considering the higher bioavailability of tinctures, 4 mg should do it.
I took a nice double dose before bed the last few days and I’ve noticed the effects; I have been sleeping well lately. The CBD is a relatively low dose at 10 mg per serving, so the other ingredients seem to be helping. I don’t always remember my dreams, but I did last night, which was cool. Cannabidiol and melatonin are a great combination for sleep, and one of the many benefits of CBD oil is that it has been shown to help with issues like insomnia.
Overall, I really enjoyed their Night formula, but I would like to see them offer a higher strength version of it in the future. I think it’s a great companion to their Day formula.

NanoCraft offers a special formula of CBD oil designed for a good night’s sleep. It contains nano-emulsified broad spectrum CBD. A soothing lavender and passionflower blend infused with 5-HTP and melatonin. Each bottle contains 10 mg of high potency CBD per serving and should be taken before bedtime.
I don’t have much experience taking CBD in capsule form. I have tried a few in the past, but it’s difficult to gauge the effects as opposed to vaping or taking it sublingually. I was able to cut the capsule open and drop the oil under my tongue. It tasted pretty harsh, but that’s because it is not really meant for that purpose. I just did it to test the quality and effectiveness of the oil. I also took a few the regular way. They seem to be working, which only confirms their third party lab tests. I generally recommend vaping or taking CBD sublingually, but capsules are a great alternative way to get your dose of cannabidiol.

Nanocraft Softgel Capsules are formulated with phytocannabinoid-rich CBD oil. Each one contains 25 mg of CBD extracted using patented nano-emulsion technology for maximum bioavailability, with 30 capsules in total. They also contain 40 naturally occuring terpenes that work synergistically with the other cannabinoids.
A common use for CBD is for pain. NanoCraft offers a CBD topical specifically for that. It contains 250 or 500 mg of broad spectrum CBD and a ton of other ingredients including eucalyptus, coconut oil, shea butter, lavender oil and wintergreen leaf extract. It has a fresh minty scent that reminds me of pain creams like Icy Hot. I received the 500 mg version, which I hopefully won’t have to use for serious pain.
Fortunately I don’t have any real pain issues. However, working at a desk all day can give you the occasional neck pain. I applied the NanoCraft Pain Stick formula to my neck region. It feels really nice rolling on, and it’s convenient to apply. I noticed a tingling sensation after a few minutes, which is probably common with most pain creams. I also noticed my neck was a bit more relaxed after using it for a few days, but I was also vaping CBD in addition to taking it orally. In my opinion, CBD topicals alone are not effective enough for chronic pain. If you’re using a cream, supplement it with an oil or some CBD vape juice.
I actually like the smell of the cream, and I like the tingly feeling it provides. It didn’t irritate my skin either, so that’s another plus. It also doesn’t smell like weed, so you won’t have to worry about that being an issue. I recommend it to anyone looking for a high strength, third party lab tested CBD rub with a pleasant minty scent. It also contains a complex blend of healing herbs, so the CBD oil is just the icing on the cake.
Price: $59.99 (500 mg CBD)
Nanocraft CBD Pain Stick is loaded with 500 mg of broad spectrum hemp oil and natural terpenes. It also contains shea butter, ginger, peppermint oil and a variety of other herbs and essential oils. It’s easy to apply and designed for maximum absorption. It’s also independently lab tested for quality and potency.
From what I have seen so far, it looks like NanoCraft is doing it right. They have attractive branding, pristine packaging and quality products that are thoroughly tested by a reputable lab. As for the NanoPlex technology, I would love to see more tests done on the effectiveness of their oil versus other CBD products on the market.
One thing I can verify is that NanoCraft seems to be meeting the standards of a premium CBD brand. I’d like to try their higher potency Gold Series tinctures sometime in the near future, but I think I got a taste of it from their capsules. When I first heard of them, they only had a CBD-infused water available, but they now have a well-rounded line of CBD oil.
