1,000mg Hemp Oil
I had a very strong feeling of anxiety and depression when my grandpa died last year. I started to use hemp oil to see if I could feel better and normalize my mood, I was starting to have insomnia, but when I used the R+R Hemp Oil (1,000 mg) it helped with my stress relief and sleeping patterns, it also improved my skin health and I surprised. Definitely, I would recommend it for someone that it’s facing similar situations. I ordered this product hoping for pain relief. I’ve been using for about 6 months now. My pain is noticeably less but I’m also sleeping better. A good deep sleep that I haven’t been getting. I’ve had less stress and don’t anger so quickly. I will purchase again.
Tinctures & Softgels
Before getting this tincture, I tried out R+R Hemp Oil Softgels. I had my reservations, but heard about the health benefits of hemp oil from friends. So, I decided to try it out. At first I was underwhelmed by the softgels, but after a two days and increasing the dosage slightly, I was experiencing perceivable benefits. How many supplements can you say do that? It is also packaged in a fun, old-timey style reminiscent of the medicine shows of early America. There’s no snake oil here though.
Everything I wrote about in my review of the R+R Hemp Oil softgels holds true for this tincture, and then some! Theoretically, a dropperful is the same 10mg dosage as one 10mg softgel, but since the liquid form is sublingual, it absorbs more quickly into the bloodstream and feels more potent. I tried a dropperful and within minutes felt a calm wash over me. It was as if I had just finished meditating or some yoga and deep breathing exercises. Another two squeezes before bed and I slept through night for the first time in many months. The claims of deeper, longer sleep and the ability to relieve stress and anxiety hold true, at least for me. Getting your Omegas, reducing pain and inflammation, and rejuvenation of skin and hair are all just gravy for me if they pan out over time.
I prefer the tincture delivery method, but I would say go with the softgels if you want the effects to kick in less perceptibly and after a longer amount of time. Another benefit of the liquid is that it doesn’t have the gelatin casing. The only ingredients are hemp oil, fractionated coconut oil, and peppermint oil. The soothing drops taste only slightly of refreshing peppermint and not much else. To top it off, it is organic, 3rd Party tested, GMP certified, and fully traceable. This is company I can feel good about buying from. In fact, I’ve been in contact with one of their reps and he’s gone out of his way to answer my questions and offer suggestions. I have no problem giving R+R Hemp Oil my highest recommendation!
Original Formula CBD Oil
I recently purchased Charlotte’s Web CBD Oil, Original Formula CBD Oil directly from Charlotte’s Web for a price of $130, including tax.
Although it hurt to spend so much money on a 30mL bottle, I do feel it was justified. Let me start off by saying that I’m very happy with this product, as I have been taking it for a full month so far. The natural olive oil flavor is easy on my stomach, and I typically take the recommended dose, which is one full dropper. The entire bottle contains 50mg CBD per mL, which means 1,500mg of total CBD.
I use Charlotte’s Web CBD Original Formula to assist with ongoing insomnia and inflammation. Insomnia began because of the inflammation in my foot, which is the result of gout. However, I find relief for a few hours when using this product.
I feel as though I’m an adequate source because I’ve tried multiple brands, such as PureKana and Joy Organics. So far, I think Charlotte’s Web hits it on the nail with this formula because it puts me straight to bed and decreases the inflammation.
I know I’ve heard a lot of hype around Charlotte’s Web, but I think it’s well-deserved since it actually works. If you are sick of all of the snake-oil CBD products, then follow the golden rule and buy high-quality CBD products — it’ll save you money in the long run.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone that needs the help of CBD. Don’t let the sticker shock scare you — it’s worth it.
17mg Hemp Extract – Olive Oil flavor.
I use Charlotte’s Web 17mg Hemp Extract – Olive Oil flavor. The dosage I usually take is 1ML before bed, or if I’m having a rough day I take a second dose during the day. I purchase it from a private vendor that sells holistic products down the street. It can also be ordered directly from the manufacturer which I had to do last time due to COVID-19. Overall, it has dramatically reduced my anxiety levels and I experience fewer panic attacks. Upon taking the product I experience a near-instant sense of calm that continues and proliferates over the next hour.
I find the taste pleasant – earthy, grassy, and smooth. I started taking it approximately 2 years ago and the benefits have continued to increase over time. I have used several other brands over CBD oil, none of which have provided the level of benefits and powerful effects of Charlotte’s Web. Even though it is fairly expensive, it is definitely worth it due to the quality of the product.
Hemp Extract with Olive Oil
CBD oil helps curb my cravings for marijuana and helps me stay focused. Starting in college, I started self-medicating with daily marijuana use. I found many unconventional benefits from this and found it to be beneficial when studying, socializing, and more. However, this was not without its disadvantages, especially long-term.
A few years ago I started to take CBD oil more seriously. It took me a while to really feel and comprehend the effects, and each brand seems slightly different. The benefits I find from CBD oil are decreased anxiety, a clearer head, moderately increased focus, and an increase in general well being. I now actively promote CBD oil to everyone as an anti-anxiety supplement. I am a huge proponent of its effects and potential to improve peoples’ lives.
I have tried a few different brands, and am still relatively new to using CBD oil. I was skeptical about it for a long time until I really understood what it felt like.
I started with Signature Hemp Extract (500+ mg cannabinoids per 60 mL bottle, 4.2+ mg per serving) from Bluebird Botanicals, an online store that I would recommend for decently priced, good value CBD.
I also tried CBD flower from a website called Calypso, and ordered oil from there as well. The Calypso oil has 1,000mg CBD in a 30 mL bottle (33mg per serving), and it’s very high quality.
Lastly, I am a huge fan of online retailer Charlotte’s Web hemp extract with olive oil. This one comes in a 30 mL bottle and advertises 17 mg of cannabinoids per 1 mL.
Charlotte’s Web Original Formula Mint Chocolate Flavored Hemp Extract
I have ligamentous laxity which frequently causes ligament pains in my feet, hips, and elbows. This pain can vary depending on the day from merely annoying, to making it very difficult just to walk around. I purchased Charlotte’s Web original formula mint chocolate flavored hemp extract several months ago to see if CBD could help with these pains. I purchased this CBD off the Charlotte’s Web website and they claim their formula contains 50mg of plant-based cannabinoids per mL.
The effectiveness of CBD on my pain was fairly minor. I did notice a slight decrease in ligament pain but the effect was so subtle, it may have been placebo. I followed the directions and took 0.5mL twice per day for around two weeks. I don’t know the veracity of this claim, but I had previously read that CBD has a kind of reverse tolerance effect where the substance becomes more effective over time. Personally though, I did not notice any increase in effects with time. After finishing the vial, I did not make any further purchases because the effects of the CBD did not seem significant enough for me to continue using it.
Overall, CBD may have had some positive effect on my ligamentous laxity induced pain, but nothing substantial.
If you’re one of millions of Americans like me who have a hard time falling asleep, you may be interested to know that in some cases, CBD oil can help. As someone who usually relies on prescription strength sleep aids, I thought I’d give Royal CBD Oil a shot at helping me get some shuteye.
I bought a bottle of Royal CBD’s 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil from https://royalcbd.com/ . The product is touted as extra strength, so you don’t need to consume half the bottle in order to get the intended effects. I trusted the label and took one dropper full about an hour before bed.
Here’s what happened.
At no point did I feel myself become drowsy, like I would from a prescription sedative. The best way I would describe how I felt was relaxed and ready to try to fall asleep. As I lay in bed feeling very awake, I did however notice that I was a lot less restless than I usually am when I am trying to fall asleep. It was a welcome respite from the stressed out tossing and turning that usually goes on when I’m trying to get to dreamland.
Ultimately sleep came, and it came on easier because I was relaxed. I made it through the night without waking up as well. I can’t say for sure that it was the CBD oil that did the trick, but I will most certainly be using it again. At the very least it made trying to fall asleep much, much less stressful.
