We recently had the pleasure of working with Clean Remedies to review their CBD oil tincture and roller ball to test its effects. In case you have been hiding under a rock, CBD is essentially a way of obtaining all the health benefits of marijuana without any of the psychoactive properties. Sound too good to be true? Well, don’t you worry – we tried it out and are here to tell you all about our experience.
I’m a pretty relaxed person, to be honest. I don’t get stressed out too easily. One of my many skills is that I can fall asleep on at the drop of a dime ANYWHERE. I am the queen of sleeping on airplanes. My husband Kyle, on the other hand will admit to stressing out over pretty inconsequential things… pretty much all the time. Sound like anyone you know? So when we started using CBD oil, honestly I didn’t feel the effects right away, but my husband displayed properties of “zen” almost immediately. I noticed it most in his lack of road rage, he notices it most in his ability to relax in situations where he’d normally feel anxiety.
Update: During my postpartum period I’ve experienced more anxiety than I’m used to, so I’ve tried Clean Remedies tincture again when it’s starting and found it to be very helpful in keeping me a bit more tranquil during this season of life.
Where I personally noticed the most significant difference while taking CBD oil tincture is the quality of my sleep. I fell slept heavier and woke up every morning feeling much more rested. Since I am SO good at sleeping, getting out of bed in the morning is a bit of a struggle but I generally feel more refreshed after an evening where I’ve used the tincture. I’ll be honest, I try to only use it when I’m feeling restless so that I don’t build a tolerance to it.
Kyle + I both took the oil by placing it under our tongues for 30 seconds – it’s practically tasteless but I still washed it down with a sip of water because….its oily. I’ve also heard of people adding into their smoothies!
CBD oil helps not only the anxious and sleep deprived but also helps with pain relief and inflammation and the Clean Remedies roller ball is incredible for this. You roll it onto anywhere you’re feeling achy and it immediately brings relief. It makes the area a little tingly, a bit like icy-hot which I absolutely love. If I could recommend trying one thing from the Clean Remedies line up, it would be this.
