If you’re a member of any of the Meniere’s Disease or Tinnitus Facebook groups, you’ve probably seen a huge increase in the number of people talking about CBD products.
If not, allow me to give you brief introduction: CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is one of 113 different cannabinoids found in the marijuana/hemp plant. On its own, it’s non-psychoactive which means you will not get high from consuming CBD. Yet it’s believed to be responsible for many of the medicinal effects of cannabis.
I’ve posted several times about my experiences with CBD, and every time the response has been incredible. (If you haven’t read my previous CBD post, do so now.)
CBD has helped me to manage my stress and anxiety levels more than anything else I’ve tried. It doesn’t seem to directly improve my Meniere’s symptoms or tinnitus levels, but it completely relieves my stress and anxiety, both of which are big triggers for me. So from that point of view, it has indirectly helped me more than I ever could have imagined. And after several months of daily use, I continue to be blown away at how much it seems to improve my quality of life.
In the coming months, I’m going to write a lot more about CBD. I plan to write a comprehensive guide to using CBD for chronic illness. I will be reviewing new CBD products, letting you know about CBD related research, and reaching out to CBD companies to try to get discounts for my readers!
In that spirit, I wanted to tell you all about a new CBD oil that I’ve used for the last few weeks from an amazing company called CBDistillery. Until recently, most of my experiences with CBD have been limited to Charlotte’s Web Hemp Oil. It was exciting to try a new CBD oil from another leader in this space.
After having to wait 13 business to receive my most recent order of Charlotte’s Web, I was delighted to receive my CBDistillery order after only 2 days, and ordering itself was a breeze.
CBDistillery offers a ton of different CBD products from full spectrum CBD oil at varying concentrations, to isolated CBD powder, disposable vape pens, capsules, topical creams, and more. It’s an amazing selection, and the pricing is excellent, though it can be bit overwhelming if you’re new to CBD or if you don’t know exactly what you want.
I decided to go with the 500mg 15ml Full Spectrum CBD Tincture. At $35 plus shipping, it’s less expensive than everything else I’ve tried from Charlotte’s Web, and at a higher CBD concentration per milliliter than what I was using before. (Requiring less oil per dose)
In fact, CBDistillery offers several lower priced CBD products which are an excellent way to try CBD without breaking the bank. If you’re interested in trying CBD Oil for the first time, I would recommend either the 500mg Full Spectrum Oil that I ordered or the 250mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil ($20).
I’ve only used it for about 2 weeks now, but my early results are incredibly promising! So far, I’ve tried dosages between 5 and 20 mg of CBD, and I’ve actually found it more effective than Charlotte’s Web for helping me fall sleep. For anxiety and stress relief, it’s equally as effective.
Within minutes of sublingual dosing, I feel my anxiety melt away. The tension in my chest and stomach releases as a subtle body relaxation washes over me. I feel sharper in a certain sense too. It’s an enjoyable, relaxed focus that helps me to be more productive and better cope with brain fog. I know many of you have experienced this effect as well.
The taste isn’t bad either, though not nearly as pleasant as the mint chocolate and olive oil flavors of Charlotte’s Web. CBDistillery’s CBD oils smell and taste like, well, like hemp. It’s not unpleasant in the least, and far better than other oils I’ve tried, but Charlotte’s Web is delicious and sets a high bar for comparison. (I honestly have no idea of how Charlottes Web was able to make their oils taste so good!)
Final Thoughts and Recommendation:
All in all, I’m incredibly impressed. I highly recommend CBDistillery, especially if you are interested in CBD and looking to try it for the first time.
I’m also excited to try some of the other products they have to offer! I recently ordered CBDistillery’s newly released CBD Vape Cartridges and 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD oil and should receive it any day now. So stay tuned for additional reviews!
If you want to try CBDistillery, I recommend starting with one the CBD oils and experimenting with the dose.
