Feeling stressed? Can't sleep properly? On edge? Yes, that was me too until the lovely people at WholyMe sent me their CBD Relief Drops to try.
CBD - Cannabidiol - a compound derived from the flowers and leaves of the hemp plant, is believed to improve overall health and well being, helping users sleep better and feel more relaxed. It is a non-psychoactive and organic healing alternative to everyday stress and in some cases, physical pain.
My initial reaction when I first tried the drops was how strong they tasted, although I suppose that's only to be expected considering it is an entirely natural product. Now, after four days of taking three drops twice daily, I really feel my stress has flown away - and even better, I sleep through the night and wake refreshed. That can't be bad!
Tinctures: CBD oil is suspended in liquid as an oil tincture making usage simple. Apply the required amount of drops under the tongue using the dropper in the bottle, hold for 60 seconds then swallow. From £37, wholyme.com
And don't worry ......
CBD products are legal, as long as they contain less than 0.2% THC - the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects - and are sold as a health/food supplement. High-quality products have little or no THC because of strict processing and extraction methods used. CBD isn't addictive and you can't overdose on it either.
Wholyme's products are certified organic and vegan.
WholyMe CBD can be taken 3 times a day before meals either daily or when required.
