Hey there! so today im bringing you a review of something ive wanted to try for a while now, CBD oil. Its been toted around for a while now as a natural, powerful way to treat anxiety, depression and a long list of various pains. But due to the price ive never taken the leap to try it, so i was very excited to be sent 5% CBD oil from salve herbal.
Salve herbal was formed because the owners struggled to find the right kind of high quality CBD on the market that could help manage things like anxiety. They sell three different strengths, 5% which is the one i have and thats £19.99, 10% which is and 20% which is.
So the CBD is in a small glass bottle with a dropper, and what you do is put a few drops under your tongue, hold it for 60 seconds then swallow and you are meant to do this twice a day, adjusting the amount of drops as you go along depending on the strength you need.
The biggest thing that you will notice about CBD oil, and something i was warned about too is that this stuff tastes horrible! which to be honest is no surprise, considering what it comes from. If you have ever smelt hemp, you will know its not exactly the kind of thing you would put in a candle!
And yeah, its tastes awful, someone discribed it as old socks but i think it tastes more like dirt. Its not nice at all, but if you buck it up and have a strongly flavoured drink ready to wash it down your ok! i tended to have juice or a fizzy drink ready to wash it down and that was fine its honestly not the worst thing in the whole world to have to taste!
I started with 3 drops but i quickly increased the drops up very quickly, i took it morning and night and have been for a couple of weeks now, to see if would help with my anxiety, depression and pain in my joints and aching overall at all.
and has it?
I think that if i really wanted to feel a massive difference i would have to go for a high percentage, but even on the 5% i did find some differences. My pain is still bad and sometimes overwhelming but it did help with the aching in my legs and the fact that i sometimes get restless legs from the pain, it helped that. Ive felt calmer, even with my anxiety being at its normally high levels i have felt over all just more peaceful and calmer and this is the only thing i can put it down too really!
I dont honestly think i would buy this myself, but this is purely down to feeling that it isnt worth the price tag for what it does for me. if i could afford the higher percentage i would for sure give it a go but i just cant at the moment.
However, i am glad i tried it, the restless legs have been an issue for a while and finding a way to ease them is really nice, its worth the taste!
Have you tried CBD oil? did it help you?
