I finally tried CBD Oil! Here is what it did for me (Reviewing CBD Oil from Just CBD)

By | December 15, 2018

Nature is a wonderful source of powerful medicines, many of them we haven’t even discovered yet. One of the natural medicines that I’ve already talked about on my blog is CBD oil and finally, I managed to give it a try! I am really excited to tell you all about my experience with CBD oil and what it helped me with. In this post, you will also learn its proven benefits and how to use it.

The CBD brand that I’ve tried is called Just CBD and they are actually based in the USA but they also deliver to the UK and other countries.

Just CBD contacted me after coming across my blog online and after carefully studying their website and reading about their vision and mission, I decided that I wanted to work with them. So they sent me a couple of their products to try in return for my honest review. I received their CBD oil in a 30ml bottle with a dropper (550mg CBD strength) and a sample of CBD honey sticks (I was really curious to try these as I found them intriguing).

If you are reading this and you are not sure what CBD oil is, it is an oil extracted from a cannabis plant (Cannabis Sativa) which is rich in a chemical called Cannabidiol (CBD). Due to its medicinal properties, it can be used for the treatment of various health conditions, concerns and ailments. CBD oil is highly anti-inflammatory and a powerful natural medicine. It’s totally legal in the UK and many other countries. You can learn more about it from one of my previous articles here.

CBD Oil Proven Benefits – Summary

First of all, before I start talking more about my experience with CBD oil and introduce you to Just CBD brand, let me mention how CBD oil may be able to help you.

It’s worth knowing that currently there are several clinical trials in progress and CBD research is on-going but this is an exciting area of medical research which will sooner or later reveal even more benefits that CBD oil holds. But for now, these are the benefits that have been scientifically proven and you cannot go wrong using CBD oil for the following:

  • As a natural pain reliever
  • To improve your mental health (for anxiety and depression)
  • To treat epilepsy
  • To manage symptoms of Parkinson’s disease
  • To improve symptoms of autism
  • To improve your skin health (acne)

People have tried CBD oil for other health issues and illnesses as well and although it could work for a variety of medical conditions, more research and clinical trials are needed to prove that.

My experience with CBD oil (Just CBD review)

I’ve been really curious to see what CBD oil can do for me and since I don’t have any major issues with my health, I’ve just been using it as a pain reliever, mostly for muscle aches.

It’s really amazing when I first started using it, how well it worked for me.

Not long ago, I started a new exercise regime, focusing more on building strength in my muscles (strength training). I thought that CBD oil would come really handy during the recovery phase.

CBD Oil for Muscle Pain and Muscle Recovery

One of the weeks, I had my first session using weights at home and it was really hard although it was only a short 20-minute session, but still, when you are just starting out with weight training, it’s not easy!

On the same day, I took CBD oil from Just CBD and I was really surprised when I woke up the next day. I was expecting muscle pains all over my body after a hard workout the previous day, but I couldn’t feel a thing!

I moved my arms in various directions and stretched them, expecting some pain, but still, there was no pain. Normally, this would not have happened and the muscles which I hadn’t used in a long time would hurt. The only reason I can think of why I didn’t get any muscle aches is because I took CBD oil the day before. And I also took it the next day, to help speed up the recovery (although I didn’t feel any discomfort).

So in this case, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties of CBD oil have definitely worked for me.

I continued to take CBD oil around my workout routine and it certainly did make a difference. Sometimes, it would not totally prevent the muscle aches but it felt to me that the aches were not that strong and taking CBD oil continuously seemed to have got rid of any pains sooner. I was really happy about this because before, I would sometimes have to wait 3 days before doing the next difficult workout session but since my muscle recovery was faster (with a help from CBD oil), all I needed was one day rest and then I got on with my exercise plan. That certainly made my life easier and I was able to better follow my exercise plan which I made in advance. That’s really helping with my fitness goals and I can now have more difficult sessions more often.

If you regularly exercise and often suffer from muscle pains and you take a long time to recover, then I highly recommend you try CBD oil.


CBD Oil for Menstrual Cramps and Period Pains

CBD oil also helped me during my period when I had some bad pains and cramps – something that doesn’t happen very often but my last period was more uncomfortable than normal. So on the day when my period pains were quite bad, I took a few doses of CBD oil and that really helped to relieve the pain and discomfort.

I was curious whether this was just a placebo effect or if CBD is really effective for period pains so I did a quick search online to see what other people say. And it’s actually true, CBD oil does help with menstrual cramps and you can read many stories about this online, just do a quick search on Google. But I learnt that if you want to manage your period pains better, the best is to take CBD oil before your period pains even start as once they start, CBD oil won’t be as effective.

Apart from the pain-relieving properties, CBD oil also has a muscle-relaxing effect – during the period, it relaxes contractions of the smooth muscle lining the uterus which can cause so much discomfort. So this is another reason why you may want to give CBD oil a try during your period.

How to use CBD oil

CBD oil is quite straightforward to use. At first, I wasn’t sure how to use it as it’s not very clear on the product’s label (it just says a serving dose is 1-3 drops). But then I read online that you just put the required dose under your tongue and leave it there for at least 90 seconds (more if possible). In this way, CBD oil will start to work faster as it won’t have to go through your digestive system. Instead, it will get dissolved and absorbed through the mucous membranes under your tongue which is where a large number of capillaries and blood vessels are. There will still be a little bit of CBD left in your mouth afterwards and you just swallow that, allowing it to go through your digestive system.

Alternatively, you can take CBD oil by ingesting it and if you don’t like the taste you can easily add it to various beverages and foods. You can add it to your smoothie and even coffee.

CBD oil taste

Before trying CBD oil I was a bit worried that I won’t like the taste. I read somewhere that it doesn’t taste very nice. But CBD oil from Just CBD actually tastes fine, it’s not bad at all and nothing that anybody can’t handle.

The reason why it doesn’t taste bad is because it’s mixed with honey and when you are holding it under your tongue, you can mostly taste the sweetness of the honey. However, it does come with a bit of a bitter aftertaste, but this is totally fine. It’s not very strong, only slightly bitter. At least I know it’s not only honey that I am holding in my mouth.

So if you are worried about buying CBD oil which you won’t like, then buying from Just CBD is definitely a way to go. Not all CBD brands sell CBD oil that tastes good.
