Best CBD for Managing Stress

Rosebud CBD Review

Rosebud Original Strength CBD Oil has been my favorite tincture right now. As with all CBD tinctures, I feel this is best when used consistently. I experienced a much more mild stress response throughout the month I was taking this. Personally, I like to use CBD to manage the physical symptoms of anxiety (increased heart rate, a tightness in my throat, chest or stomach) that I experience most often at work. This was the first CBD tincture I ever tried, after using CBD edibles for several months, and found the transition seamless and effective.

I love that they offer a smaller 0.5 ounce bottle. This was an affordable way for me to try a new brand without spending too much for committing to a formula that didn’t work for me. The flavor of this tincture was light and subtle. I preferred to use it in the morning as I was getting ready (I liked to think of it as an extension of my skincare routine), and it helped me manage signs of stress and anxiety throughout the day. I also liked that the carrier oil was MCT oil – I appreciate knowing that this was made with a product I would have been comfortable consuming on its own. I also love the idea of supporting an independent, locally sourced brand!

Whether you’re looking for a formula to use during the day or to help you relax at night, Rosebud is a great place to start.

Irwin Natural CBD Review

I am a creative that mainly focuses on architectural and interior design. I work long hours as a freelancer and often on very tight deadlines. I also am beginning to study for my professional licenses and dabble in other creative outlets to help control my anxiety, stress, and racing thoughts. However, I have never been able to use these outlets to completely control until I tried CBD. I have had some trouble finding the proper brands and the proper dosage but recently have been able to successfully use it in order to help with these issues.

I am currently using Irwin Natural CBD 250MG, Peppermint flavor. The serving size is two half droppers or one full dropper essentially, however I typically am fine with a half dropper for my entire workday. I used to put it in my tea but because of the oily texture I have begun taking it directly and that has worked a lot better as well. I purchased it from Vitamin Shoppe in Washington D.C.

I would say that this has definitely allowed me to improve my lifestyle and mental health. I am able to focus, have a clearer mind and am just more generally relaxed throughout my day, which makes it easier for me to get through all the things I have to do during my day. Normally I get through my days and at the end I feel like I’ve g one through a tornado successfully, but now at the end of my day I can close my computer and just feel calm. I can now leave work at work and spend quality time with my family when the time comes.

MedTerra CBD Review

1,000mg CBD Tincture

I bought the MedTerra 1,000 mg it’s a non-GMO: 100% organically grown. I began with a dosage of 2 drops twice per day. Then I use from 2-4 per day as needed. It has improved my lifestyle as a student and freelancer I’ve constant pressure and stress for different things. Now with the use of this premium product I can sleep much more and have a relief, also I don’t feel so much muscular pain when I do work and exercise. It has improved greatly my daily lifetime routine and feel much more relief on my mental focus. This is my go-to oil, whenever I need to recommend an oil to someone, I always recommend them this. This is truly one of the most effective and high-quality oils on the market. If you are just starting out, then definitely try the 1,000mg.

3,000mg CBD Tincture

Great product! I ordered the MedTerra 3,000mg tincture so that I don’t have to take as many drops as the lower strength oils and it’s been great. It’s definitely a high-quality product. I enjoyed this one much more and feel a more effective result from the previous dosage. The oil itself is really high-quality. The flavor is really nice as well and it tastes really refreshing. The price is alright, you get what you pay for in the end. It’s worth it. The oil from here is by far the best CBD oil I’ve ever had. It tastes so good and it’s so smooth going down. You won’t even know you’re taking CBD oil anymore. It’s just great.

MedTerra Chicken Flavor Hemp Pet Tincture

I use the MedTerra Chicken Flavor Hemp Pet Tincture for my Lab dog to help it sleep and calm, since it’s always hyperactive and doesn’t sleep at nights. My vet told me they can use it too, so I bought the 150 mg ones with a 5mg doses per day. At the beginning my dog experimented secondary effects as vomit and diarrhea for a week, but then it came to normality and make a great effect on Sparky.

HempActiv CBD Review

I’ve used CBD oil for various reasons. For example, I’ve taken CBD oil orally to relieve anxiety — I think it helped a little bit, but I didn’t really notice a huge difference (it could’ve been a low dosage). This brand was called CBD MD, and the dosage was 10 mg. I suffer from back and joint pain, so I also use it in a cream form. I love when brands include menthol in their formula because it helps to soothe the muscles in my back. The best brand I’ve tried for this purpose is Hemp Activ (found on Amazon). I’m not sure on the dosage for that one but I think it was the “Extra Strength” version.

In general, I’m skeptical of CBD as an effective method of pain/anxiety relief on its own, but when mixed with other agents (like menthol) I think it can be really relaxing. I know my mom also swears by this CBD + menthol combination for joint pain relief. My sister, on the other hand, uses a CBD balm infused with lavender (I can’t remember the brand name). She reported that it didn’t help significantly. CBD in an oil form is less popular among my family and friends.

Focl CBD Review

Focl CBD tincture is a favorite of mine. I have the 1000mg mint flavor, which has a hint of refreshing flavor as it sits under the tongue. It is made with American-grown hemp.

I’ve tried a number of tinctures over the years, and Focl ranks up there as a higher-quality, premium CBD brand.

I actually didn’t have to purchase this product. It was sent to me as a promotional incentive, along with a refreshing and healing skin cream which also contains CBD. I use the cream as well, for pain and strain in my wrists.

I take the tincture just once daily, in the morning before breakfast. I currently have two other brands of tincture as well, and I rotate which one I take daily, when I’m not in the mood for a minty flavor, as the other two are flavorless.

Focl is packaged nicely, in a see-through bottle so you can tell how much is left. The results have been good. The high level of CBD in the bottle makes a difference compared to lower levels of CBD.

I recommend Focl, particularly this mint flavor. The cream is also beneficial for those with physical ailments. I find that the tincture is calming and relaxing when I’m under stress or turmoil.

NutraHempCBD Review

CBD Spray

I’m a huge fan of NutraHempCBD and use many of their products, but my favorite is their 600MG cannabidiol 99% pure CBD spray. It’s a general use oral spray that is designed to help mellow you out naturally, but not so potently that you feel like you’re in any sort of an altered state.

I use this spray at the end of the day and it really helps me relax. I also think it gives me more restful sleep, as well.

The recommended dosage is six sprays under your tongue, which I follow and that is perfect for me. I love this product because I have a very stressful lifestyle but do not want to resort to prescription medications or self-medicating to calm myself enough to get a great night’s sleep. As a former smoker, I am incredibly cognizant to not pick up any bad habits that relieve my stress but create other ancillary risks to my health.

I tested this spray for the first time and noticed that all the hype was absolutely true, CBD can help you relax without being habit-forming. In fact, I have to really try to remember to use it around 8pm each night in order to prepare myself for a 10pm bedtime.

Finally, what I love about this product is that I know that their growers are ethical, sustainable and focused on sourcing the highest quality CBD for the market.

CBD Sleep Twists

When I have a really stressful day, it used to mean I was in for a sleepless night where I laid in bed either zoning out on Netflix until 3am or just staring at the dark wishing I could sleep. I have such a hard time winding down, but refuse to resort to sleeping pills because they are terribly addictive and cause all sorts of health issues including sleep walking, night eating, and loads of chemical damage to the brain.

I’ve tried edibles (legally) and they leave me with a terrible hangover the next morning. Over the counter sleep aids knock me out for way too long and I don’t feel rested. Which is why CBD oil sleep serums (a mix of CBD and melatonin) are my sleep savers.

My favorite is NutraHempCBD Sleep Twists. They’re a 5MG CBD oil blend of cannabidiol, melatonin, 5-HTP, valerian root extract and GABA. Not that I know what all of that is, but I do know it’s a naturally sourced and organic blend of sleep serum that makes me feel instantly tired but not like I’m in an altered drug state of any sort. You twist the tab off and squeeze a little vial under your tongue and swallow whenever you’re ready for bed.

I really love this particular brand as well because they use sustainable farming practices in developing areas of countries in need, creating jobs for villages, which is so cool. The company also uses quality assurance practices so that their products are consistently potent. I’ve noticed that as these products have become legalized there is a lot of variation in them, so I love finding really consistently potent brands. You can get them at www.nutrahempcbd.com.

Joy Organics CBD Review

Although I have my go-to CBD oils, I decided to give Joy Organics a try because I’ve read a lot of positive reviews about their CBD oils. It’s been exactly two weeks since I received my Joy Organics CBD Oil Tincture (900mg of total CBD). I purchased the CBD oil tincture directly from Joy Organics’ website for $49 because I couldn’t say no to the current 15% off coupon.

I use CBD oil to help me relax. I have stress issues from work that have boiled over into my personal life, and the current situation of COVID has me needing an extra boost of relaxation. I never go above the recommended dose, which is usually a full dropper.

So far, Joy Organics has been hit-or-miss. Sometimes I feel very relaxed, whereas other moments I don’t feel anything at all. I never experience this with other CBD brands, such as Charlotte’s Web, Green Roads, or Mana.

I will say that I love the flavor of the orange bliss, and it’s not too heavy for my stomach. All-in-all, I would give Joy Organics another try if I can’t find my usual CBD products, especially since this CBD oil tincture was so affordable.

I would rate this experience as 3 out 5 stars.
