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.

I do really want to try some CBD edibles and some bath bombs! I’ve been eyeing these vegan gummies for awhile now as well as SoulCBD bath bombs.

Have you tried any CBD products? What has your experience been?
