Endoca 3% CBD Oil is a full spectrum, supercritical CO2 Extracted hemp product that has about 1 mg of CBD per drop. This is a great mid-strength product, and can therefore be used by newer CBD supplement users as well as those that are more sensitive to the effects of hemp. Since this is a European product, the full spectrum allowance of THC is no more than 0.2%.
Endoca Was The First Company to Sell CBD Online
Endoca was created to help fund research into the fledgling cannabis industry. We have a full review of the Endoca Brand here. The original clinic was free to patrons and they were educated on the benefits of supplementing with CBD and then they were originally given the Cannabis to make products for themselves at home. Endoca, as a brand got its name from the Endocannabinoid System, and the products were sold to help fund further research on the plant and its impact on our overall health and wellness.
Endoca controls the entire process of their product development, with over 2000 acres of organic farmland growing the products in Northern Europe (and growing.) After harvest, Endoca utilizes SuperCritical CO2 extraction methods that are both ISO and GMP Certified in their manufacturing facilities. These separate certifications contain stringent protocols for manufacturing, helping to ensure the highest production standards. This particular processing method utilizes low temperatures to insure the plant maintains its most natural cannabinoid profile from the time of harvest to the time of consumption.
Diving Deep into the Endoca Raw 3% CBD Oil
Similar to the Bluebird Botanicals Complete, Endoca Raw 3% includes both the raw CBDa (non-decarboxylated, or non-heated, raw hemp) as well as the heated, CBD. This product uses the whole industrial hemp plant, so it has very low concentrations of THCv and non detectable concentrations of THCa and Δ9THC. This means you get the benefits of the “entourage effect” from the supplement because it maintains the natural cannabinoid and terpene profiles from their proprietary strain of hemp.

Let’s Look at the Test Results
On the outside of both the bottle and the box that the bottle comes in, you’ll find the batch number of your product clearly stamped. Unfortunately, there is no QR code for easier access to test results. The digits on the side of my box were 072021 1479. I was a little confused at first as to whether I needed to put all the digits into the website to find the test results, but it turns out the first four digits are actually the date. (Yes, I felt like the emoji of slapping myself in the face.)
To find the test results isn’t that hard, but it’s also not as easy as a link from the product page. From the home page, the last menu item is Support. Under Support, you’ll find a link to the Endoca Quality Report. Each report is laid out by Batch.
The test results were really thorough, with Heavy Metals Reports (none detected), Microbial Reports (none detected), and even a Residual Solvent analysis. I loved the Terpene Analysis because the reports not only showed the break down of all the terpenes found in this batch, but it also had a nice graph to visually see which were the highest terpenes in the batch. In the case of batch 1479, Limonene was the highest concentrated Terpene.
Limonene is found in the rinds of many citrus fruits (lemon anyone?) but the thing that I found most cool was that Limonene is also found in pine needles and pine cones. When I learned this it finally made sense why I smelled pine forests in my CBD supplements!
You’re probably most interested in the CBD concentrations as found in the Endoca Raw 3%. The test results showed the % of each cannabinoid and then it showed a total amount of each cannabinoid in a mg/g level. You’ll be happy to note that the CBD + CBDa totals equaled just over 3% at 3.39% Do keep in mind, the majority of that CBD is actually CBDa, coming in at 2.66% while the CBD came in at 0.73%.
What’s the difference between CBD and CBDa. In short, the CBDa is actually the raw form of the plant. CBDa has similar traits to its heated relative CBD, but in new studies, the raw form has been shown to be more bioavailable to us and has even been made into a drug for epilepsy. Thought studies on hemp are in its infancy in general, it is great to learn more about how this plant helps to bring about wellness in so many early results.
My Life Supplementing with Endoca Raw 3%
What Endoca Raw 3% Looks Like
I purchased this product for the purposes of this review and received it within three days of my online order which is pretty nice. The 10 ml bottle comes packaged inside a box that is white and periwinkle blue. The box is clear and easy to read and has the amount of CBD per drop on the front, batch number stamped on the left-hand side, and the company credentials on another side.
Inside the box, you’ll find your 10 ml bottle in a dark amber bottle with a glass, non-marked dropper. It may have just been my dropper, but the tip is a little crooked, which at first I thought was odd, but it really did make applying this product under my tongue a little easier.
Right off, you’re going to notice Endoca 3% raw tastes and smells strong
The first thing you notice when you open your Endoca 3% Raw is that it has a very potent and plant-like smell. That smell carries through to the taste. This product has a sweet earthy taste that stays with you even after you swallow it, so definitely keep that in mind if strong flavor profiles are important to you.
Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3% Over Time
The first time I took this product was before bed. I have a hard time staying asleep, but not falling asleep, so I wasn’t sure if this product would keep me asleep all night. I took 15 drops (or about half a dropper full). I fell asleep within 30 minutes and I slept well the whole night. (it was awesome!)
The next morning, I took only a few drops because I wasn’t hurting that bad, and I noticed that I started to feel the effects very soon, less than 20 minutes and that I maintained a pretty even sense of calm all day. I took half a dropper again that night and slept very well.
I have continued to take the half dropper at night and had the best results in sleep aid using the Endoca Raw Hemp Oil. The 15 mg of CBD found in this product was enough to get me to sleep and stay asleep all night. I also noticed, I didn’t have as much residual pain throughout the day, so I even skipped morning supplementation on a few days.
The best example of the Endoca 3% Raw Hemp Oil benefit came at about 3 pm one very busy, rainy afternoon. I had been running around like a chicken with my head cut off (this is a very southern expression, but for those of you not from the Southern region of the U.S., this means I looked like I was frantically moving about basically all day.) When my kids finally took their nap and I looked at my list of about 1,356 things that needed to be done in a mere two hours (if I was lucky) I started to panic –which I know is basically pointless and contributes nothing to the outcome for which I was working.
I remembered my Endoca 3% Raw Hemp Oil in the fridge, grabbed it and took half a dropper full. Almost immediately I started to breathe slower and feel better. Within five minutes, I was sitting at my computer and knocking off that crazy long list. 3 hours later, my kids woke up and I felt amazingly accomplished because I was able to get through so many tasks.
I was able to get these similar consistent results each time I took the Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3. This product helped me to relax, to focus, to go to sleep, and to reduce chronic pain that I have in my shoulder and hip. Each time I started to get overwhelmed (which is frequently with two small children) I could take this supplement and suddenly, the clouds would part, the sun would come through and I could hear the proverbial birds singing. The product really does work every single time.
The Best About Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3%
I really liked how effective this product was. I slept well while supplementing with Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3% but even more importantly, I saw near immediate reduction in anxiety when taken during the middle of the day under stressful situations. I loved how fast this product shipped to me, and that it was so easy to increase dose levels evenly since 1 drop = 1 mg of CBD.
The Worst Of Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3%
Endoca Raw Hemp Oil 3% has a mighty powerful flavor. I mean, I smelled it when I opened the package. The flavor is every bit as powerful so definitely keep that in mind when you’re ordering this product. The other thing you want to remember about this product is that it contains raw CBD (CBDa) so Endoca actually recommends keeping this product in the fridge. I normally like to carry my CBD around with me in my purse just in case I have a “Mommy meltdown” moment and I need my “Mommy Sanity Saver.”

What You Get for Your Money
This is an incredible value for the money. With 1 mg of CBD per dropper, it’s a great way to test if CBD will work for you and to figure out how much you need without breaking the bank. This comes in a smaller bottle, so your investment is lower, but it’s a great way to test the waters. Since it is a smaller bottle that has a moderately higher concentration of CBD, it helps you figure out your particular dose requirements and then you can modify your future purchases accordingly.
