Let’s talk CBD. What are the benefits?? Does it actually work?? Where can I get it from?? Will I get high??
CBD Health Benefits
CBD has been around for a while now and the hype is one of the longest on-going trends. But why is a ‘Health’ product a trend?? CBD has been used all over the world for hundreds of year’s but only now the public seem to be catching on to what is meant to be an epic game changer in medicine. No you’re not going to get high like in the films. You’re not smoking a joint haha also it’s still illegal in the UK to have products containg high levels of THC (the part that actually get’s you high). If you could then you wouldn’t be able to get weak versions in the health shops.
CBD is said to have the following health benefits –
- Stress/Anxiety Relief
- Helps Insomnia
- Pain Relief
- Hepls Aid Digestive Problems
We really could go on and on with the amount of things CBD claims to help!! But unless we try it out for ourselves then how are we meant to know if it’s really true or not?! Well here I am once again, your personal lab rat. (Btw.. I don’t condone to animal testing, it’s just and expression). I’m adding it into my daily routine to see what this particular brand – EvoPure CBD – has to offer.
I’ve vaped it for a few years and I’ve used it on my skin, but I was offered to try out some EvoPure CBD hemp oil drops.
The packaging is simple and has everything you need to know. When I first tried it I wont lie, the taste is nasty!! If any of you have taken CBD drops before you’ll know what Im talking about. I mean it’s a liquified plant, how isit even meant to taste good haha.
The dose reccomend’s roughly 2-3 drops upto 3 times a day then build up as needed. I started with 3 drops, held it under my tongue for around a minute for it to absorb then swallowed it. I was prepared and had a drink straight after to rid the taste. I stuck to that dose once a day (I’m on alot of medication so I didn’t want to add too much for now) and monitored myself over the next few weeks.
Here’s some info on how EvoPure create their oil –
“The CBD is made from hemp, specifically, Futura 75 strain which is an EU approved industrial hemp. And the hemp is made by extracting the CBD and all its other beneficial cannabinoids/terpenes from the plant in a process of CO2 extraction.”
Did It Work??
The first thing I noticed was that I was less tense. I seemed to be more relaxed within myself which if you know me, that doesn’t come easy. After a week or so I also noticed that my hands and feet weren’t swelling as much as they normally were.
They say it takes around 2 month’s for CBD to build up in your system to start seeing a big difference so I’m still early days into trying this particular one. But as you can see I’m already seeing benefits. Over time I will gradually increase the dose as I build up a tollorence to it.
CBD is also safe for children so I gave some to my daughter to see if it would help calm her as she can often get hyper but has trouble falling to sleep. We did notice that the night’s she took it she fell asleep quicker and was more refreshed the following morning compared to the night’s that she didn’t take it.
All in all I would reccomend anyone trying it out. Especially if you have various health conditions. Obviously check with your DR first.

So what’s your opinions on CBD?? Have you tried it, if so what do you think?? I personally would love to try even more CBD products. I just wish they didn’t taste so bad haha. But if it helps with my pain or mental health then a bad taste for a few seconds isn’t going to hurt!!
Stay safe beauties,
Much Love – Mrs Slee-Jones xx
