My Experience With CBD Products. Is the Hype Real?

October 20, 2019
Have you tried CBD-infused products yet? Check out this post to see what my favorite products are and the benefits of using them.

CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is starting to become a natural remedy for many common ailments people struggle with. It’s made from a chemical compound from the cannabis plant and is used in a variety of products that can provide a feeling of calmness and relaxation.

I’ve always heard great things about CBD but never took the opportunity to try it, all of the stories I read seemed too good to be true. However, I’m glad to say that I’m now a believer in CBD! Before we get into my experience, I wanted to talk about some benefits of using this and how it can have a positive impact on your lifestyle.

  • CBD manages stress, depression, and anxiety
  • Helps to improve your sleep
  • Can reduce pain and inflammation
  • CBD can treat seizures and epilepsy
Using CBD-infused products can have a positive impact on your lifestyle.

Just to give a little background on why I decided to start taking CBD: I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2016, a chronic condition associated with widespread pain, fatigue, and mental distress. The following year, I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and Anxiety.

I’ve been going back and forth to many doctors for years and have tried prescription medications that had the worst side effects. I was tired of not finding anything to relieve my mental and physical health challenges, therefore, I decided to take matters into my own hands.

In this post, I want to talk about my experience with CBD products and some of my favorite ones you can check out.

Brands With Good-Quality CBD Products

Soothe Life

Soothe is a lifestyle brand made for those seeking a natural boost in their everyday life. They focus on enhancing lives by providing a pure, high-quality CBD product line that’s easy to use in your daily routine. They also hope to eliminate the stigma associated with the cannabis industry while also making positive impacts on the mental health and opioid epidemic!

Soothe has a variety of CBD products to choose from such as:

  • CBD Drops
  • Gummy Bears/Edibles
  • Vaporizers
  • Water Soluble Powder
  • Lotions/Topical Rubs

Soothe Nano CBD Gummies

Soothe sent me their Nano CBD Gummies which are THC free and organic. The gummies are fast-acting, easy to consume, and should be taken daily for the best results. Each gummy contains 30mg of CBD.

Soothe offers edibles that are infused with 30mg of CBD in each gummy.

The first time I tried this, I was shocked at how fast it worked! I didn’t expect it to provide instant results. Taking these gummies helps me relax and keeps me calm. Ever since I started taking these, I haven’t had to take my prescription that I was put on a while ago for my mental health.

I recently finished up my second bottle and it has continued to reduce my anxiety and help me sleep better at night. I couldn’t believe I waited so long to try a product that’s not only natural but also better than taking medications that can cause side effects.

As far as my pain, it has been easier for me to do more things throughout the day because I can finally get some decent sleep. Fibromyalgia can act up if you aren’t getting the proper rest that you need. Although my pain won’t go away 100%, I know as I continue to take CBD it’ll become easier to manage.

Soothe CBD Oil Drops

Using CBD oil can be more effective for chronic pain than edibles.

Soothe reached out to me again and sent me their CBD Oil drops. From what I’ve read, the oil is more potent and works better for chronic pain. Since I didn’t notice a huge difference with my pain from the gummies, I was excited to see what the oil would do. Their CBD oil contains under 0.3% of THC and is organic and full spectrum.

You have to use a dropper and put the oil underneath your tongue for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. If you don’t like the taste, you can mix it with a drink as I did. I took this oil for around 3-4 days and unfortunately it gave me terrible headaches.

Soothe is still a great company to purchase your CBD from, however, I’d rather stick with the gummies. Just because the oil didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you!

Charis Hemp

Charis Hemp provides a variety of good-quality CBD products to choose from.

Charis Hemp is another company I recently found through Instagram. Their goal is to provide premium hemp-derived CBD infused products at the most competitive quality and prices in the market. They are dedicated to serving the community and customers by improving the overall quality of their lives.

They also have a variety of CBD products to choose from such as:

  • CBD Oils
  • Tablets/Capsules
  • Vape Juices

I purchased their 1000mg Full-Spectrum Oil and immediately fell in love when I started taking it. Thankfully, the oil didn’t cause any headaches or other side effects. Once I took a full dropper of it, it started to work within 30 minutes. You also take this by putting it underneath your tongue before swallowing. This doesn’t taste bad which is a great thing!

This oil should be taken twice a day. It has helped tremendously with my anxiety and depression. The oil doesn’t contain any additives or fillers, it’s formulated with the purest sourced ingredients and it works amazing.

I’m glad I had the opportunity to collaborate with them and receive another CBD oil. It has continued to help me relax when I’m feeling overwhelmed and it’s perfect for bedtime.

Should You Try CBD?

Do I think you should give CBD a try? I sure do! As I said before, I’ve always heard good things about taking it, however, I had doubts. With these products, you can be confident that you’re receiving legit CBD that’ll help you start feeling better mentally, physically, and emotionally.

If you struggle with chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, or depression, make sure you check out both of these brands. Let me know how it ends up working for you after using it consistently. I’d love to hear about your experience and how it made you feel!

I’m glad I took matters into my own hands and found natural remedies for my mental and physical health challenges. Don’t be ashamed if you struggle with the same. Life is hard and sometimes you need extra help to get you through your days; why not use something all-natural and effective?

    I use CBD oil in some of my soaps and I take 3 tablespoons a day to help me with anxiety and during the time of the month.

      I haven’t tried CBD oils in my soaps, I’m sure that’s good! I’ve never thought about it helping for that time of the month either!

    Thanks for posting quality brands sis. It seems like everyone is making CBD oil but the quality is not always the same.

      Exactly! We have to be careful because anyone can slap on “CBD” on their products now. Thanks for reading sis!
