It’s safe to say that CBD products are a HUGE trend right now! You guys may remember this post I did on CBD for newbies. I wrote it because I had SO many questions about CBD and figured others did as well- turns out I was right because it’s by far my most popular blog post on Pinterest! Today I wanted to revisit that post by updating you on my own experiences with CBD so far! I also have an awesome guest post to share with you because it is important to me that I include facts and education on this topic.
So in this post I shared that I hadn’t tried any CBD products yet but that I was open to it. At first I wasn’t sure I wanted to try CBD oil but later decided I did!
The only CBD oil I’ve tried so far is from Source Naturals. They actually reached out to me and asked if I wanted to try it and I said heck yeah I do! I’d been having a hard time decided which brand to try first so they made that decision for me- ha!
I wasn’t totally sure what to expect when I first tried CBD oil, despite how much I had read up on it. I didn’t have any major problems like anxiety or pain that I was looking to help but like anyone, sometimes I get anxious or just feel like I need to relax and I figured CBD oil could help with that. I definitely didn’t feel any different when I first took it but I’d read that it can take time for it to build up in your system. At first I only took it a few times over the course of a couple weeks but then tried taking it every day for a week. I still didn’t notice any major changes. I felt like it helped me relax some but thought that could just be a placebo effect.
Now, that’s not to say I don’t think CBD oil works! I know different doses work for different people. I also know that different brands work for different people. I am still finishing up the Source Naturals bottle I have because I DO enjoy, I just think the effects of it are fairly subtle for me. I do find it calming and find myself reaching for it when I am feeling overwhelmed or stressed and later, I always look back and realize I did become much calmer. So like I said, it’s subtle for me and I don’t always realize it’s doing anything until later. After I finish this bottle, I have a bottle of Sunsoil to try! I’m curious to see if I notice a difference between brands.
Another CBD product I have been using is this facial oil! Herbivore Emerald CBD Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil (that’s a mouthful). I really love how this feels on my skin and it smells amazing. I was a little worried about the coconut oil in it because that can sometimes cause problems due to it being comogeneditc… I also had never tried squalane oil on my skin so wasn’t sure how it’d react to that. I’ve been using it every evening for a couple weeks now and so far so good! It takes time to really see changes from most skincare products but I feel like my skin looks healthier! I have been dealing with a stubborn breakout patch and it hasn’t seemed to help with that but the rest of my skin looks awesome- glowy and smooth! I definitely enjoying having it as a part of my routine and am excited to see how my skin looks a month from now.
Have you tried any CBD products? What has your experience been?
