If you’re a member of any chronic illness Facebook groups, you’ve probably seen a lot of people talking about CBD products.
If not, allow me to give you brief introduction: CBD (short for Cannabadiol) is one of 113 different cannabinoids found in the marijuana/hemp plant. On its own, it’s non-psychoactive which means you will not get high from consuming CBD. Yet it’s believed to be responsible for many of the medicinal effects of cannabis.
(I’ve posted several times about my experiences with CBD, and every time the response has been incredible. If you haven't read my previous CBD post, do so now.)
CBD has helped me manage my stress and anxiety levels more than any other supplement or health product that I’ve ever tried. And after several months of daily use, I continue to be blown away at how much it seems to improve my quality of life. So I'm going to keep writing about it!
I plan to write a comprehensive guide to using CBD for chronic illness. I will be reviewing new CBD products, letting you know about CBD related research, and reaching out to CBD companies to try to get discounts for everyone!
Today, I want to tell you all about a new CBD oil that I’ve used for the last couple of days from an awesome company called CBDistillery. Until recently, most of my experiences with CBD have been limited to Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil. Charlotte's web is an excellent product, but I was excited to try a new CBD oil from another leader in the space.
After having to wait 13 business to receive my most recent order of Charlotte’s Web, I was delighted to receive my CBDistillery order after only 2 days, and ordering itself was a breeze.
CBDistillery offers a ton of different CBD products from full spectrum CBD oils at varying concentrations, to isolated CBD powder, disposable vape pens, capsules, topical creams, and more. It’s a great selection, at incredible price points, though a bit overwhelming if you don't know exactly what you want.
I decided to go with the 500mg 15ml Full Spectrum CBD Tincture. At $35, it’s less expensive than everything else I’ve tried from Charlotte’s Web, and a higher CBD concentration per milliliter than what I was using before. (Requiring less oil per dose)
(CBDistillery offers a few lower priced products, which are an excellent way to try CBD without breaking the bank.)
I’ve only used it for about week now, but my early results are incredibly promising! So far, I’ve tried dosages between 5 and 20 mg of CBD, and I’ve actually found it more effective than Charlotte’s Web for helping me fall sleep. For anxiety and stress relief, it’s equally as effective.
Within minutes of sublingual dosing, I can feel my anxiety melt away. The tension in my chest and stomach releases as a subtle body relaxation washes over me. I feel sharper in a certain sense too. It's an enjoyable relaxed focus that helps me to be more productive and better cope with brain fog.
The taste isn’t bad either, though not nearly as pleasant as the mint chocolate flavor of Charlotte’s Web. CBDistillery’s CBD oils smell and taste like, well, like hemp. It’s not unpleasant in the least, but Charlotte’s Web is delicious, and set a high bar for comparison.
Final Thoughts and Recommendations:
All in all, I’m impressed. I highly recommend CBDistillery, especially if you are interested in CBD and looking to try it for the first time. I plan to place a big order this week, and can’t wait to try some of the other products they have to offer. The vape pens are next on my list.
If you want to give it a try, I recommend starting with one the CBD oils. But regardless of which product you choose, I was able to get a discount code for my readers! You can use the offer code TINNITUS-CBD at checkout for 5% off.
I hope you all enjoyed this short review! If you have experience with CBD or CBDistillery specifically, I'd love to hear from you! Let me know what you think in the comments below.
