I have been a CBD oil user for a while now. I had been ‘into’ essential oils a couple of years back, and found a few that worked for me for a number of things. From there I then heard about CBD oil and all of the good things that it can do for anxiety, as well as general wellbeing.
After suffering from a miscarriage nearly two years ago, I spiralled down quite badly, and CBD oil has been a massive help for me, as it works for me in lighten gym mood, and just keeping me calm, even when there is a lot going on making me anxious. So there won’t be any of me going on about the benefits of it, because I have been using it for a while, and have found it to work. A couple of drops under the tongue, one or twice a day, and you’re good to go.
In my research, though, I know that not all CBD oils are created equal, and you do need to find one that will work for you. And I’m not going to lie, it is an acquired taste; you definitely don’t take it because of the taste of it, which is quite earthy. So when I was given the chance to try out a CBD oil from CBD Shopy that is flavoured with peppermint, then I was keen to try it out. If I could still get all of the benefits but just have it taste better, then what is there not to love?
Peppermint CBD Oil
If you’ve not used CBD oil before, then it comes in a small glass bottle, usually a brown glass bottle to keep the light from damaging the contents. It comes with a pipette in the lid, that you then just squeeze a few drops of oil with, under your tongue. Hold it there for around thirty seconds, or as long as you can before needing to swallow, in order to let the oil do its magic.
The flavour of this peppermint CBD oil is much nicer than any other brand that I have used before, so I would definitely recommend it from that alone. Especially if you’re new to using it, it will be a much tastier way to get into it.
In my experience with this, then choosing a CBD oil that is organic is a must. This one is, and it does make a difference. The hemp plant is something that absorbs a lot of things around it, so if you choose one that is not organic, then it can have some other junk along with it. So for a purer oil, then it is best to choose organic. Of course, this oils is vegan, non-GMO European hemp, as well as being manufactured in Britain in an ISO-certified facility. The oil is extensively tested by a third-party lab to ensure quality and safety.
What is CBD oil?
I know that seeing images of the cannabis leaf with things relating to CBD oil and it can feel a little daunting. While it comes from the hemp plant, it doesn’t have the THC part of the oil that gives you the ‘high’ that you would if you were using a cannabis product in a different way. This oil in particular contains less than 0.2% of THC, which makes sure that it is legal in the UK and will not cause any intoxicating effects.
Priced at £27.95, I think that the cost is really reasonable, though you can get it at a cheaper price of £26 if you subscribe to it monthly. It is a price that is comparable to others, so from that point of view it is something that is worth it, and makes it easy to recommend.
Have you used CBD oil before? It would be great to hear what you think.
*the oil was gifted in exchange for review. However, all words and opinions are my own, and i would only recommend something that I would use myself.
