Why I am converting to CBD products.



CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in treating many common health issues, including anxiety, depression, acne and heart disease. And for more serious health issues such as Cancer, Epilepsy, Parkinson's it has been used as complimentary medication to help ease symptoms or even side effects from stronger pharmaceutical drugs. 




I was kindly invited by Kloris CBD to come and hear about their oils, balms and range of cannabidiol products at the wonderful Babington House. Some might say that CBD products are controversial. But let's get something straight. These products do not contain THC which is the compound responsible for giving you that 'pink sky I am high' feeling.. CBD has been scientifically proven to aid a number of health concerns, but unfortunately not enough research has been done yet so we can only really take case studies and experiences of patients and users subjectively. 






I have been a long term sufferer of hormonal acne which seems to have gotten worse after having kids. I have also suffered on and off with hyperthyroidism since puberty. My hormonal imbalance has been known to flair up too. 

CBD has been proven to to be amazing for controlling and balancing sebum production as well as having a positive effect on your endocannabinoid system which is responsible for regulating your homeostasis and your responses to stress. I have also heard that CBD has been proven to be amazing for eczema sufferers so I was keen to try it out on my eldest son who has been suffering with dry skin and eczema since birth. 

So naturally after hearing about all these amazing benefits I was eager to buy it and try it out for myself. I purchased the balm to apply topically to my skin at night as well as the 1000mg oil to take orally every day. 





I waited a while to post this blog post as I wanted to try it out myself. Its not a cheap product and so really I would only recommend as a purchase for those who really want to try solve and supplement an ongoing health issue. 

So far, my skin is suffering far less from breakouts, I am sleeping more soundly, my general wellbeing is good and I am just generally a lot more relaxed and less tense. I go through bouts of anxiety, especially when I am stressed with work or the kids and I seem to respond a lot more calmer to the elements around me. 
It's only been a couple of months, and I have completely finished my bottle of oil. I would take 1-2 drops under my tongue every morning but I shared this bottle with my other half so naturally it was going to be used up a lot quicker. I still apply the balm every night and I love mixing it with my rosehip oil in the evenings. 

They did also kindly send me some complimentary bath bombs which I haven't yet tried out. Being a mum of 3 doesn't allow much for times to have quiet baths in the evening but its on my bathroom shelf awaiting a quiet evening with a cup of tea. 



I can't say that this kind of product works for everyone. But what I will say, is that as an alternative therapy I am all for using plant based products and this one ticks all the boxes for me.  For anyone interested in using it, I would definitely recommend to do some research and see if this might be the right product for you. 

On a side note I have heard interesting feedback from mums who have said that it helped with morning sickness. Obviously I am not condoning using CBD while pregnant but there is nothing to suggest that it's unsafe and if it means not using high strength anti sickness pills then surely a naturally derived product is far safer. Obviously consult your GP first. 





Disclaimer: For anyone interested in checking out CBD, go give KlorisCBD a go. This is not a sponsored post or an AD just a product that I really like and felt it was worth sharing. I must also make mention that there are a lot of bogus CBD products out there with little to no CBD content and its worth checking out the grade and spectrum of each of the products. Kloris has a guarantee on all their oils and balms and are rigorously tested by third party labs and are made using organically farmed European grown Cannabis Sativa L. hemp. 






Would love to know what your thoughts are on CBD? Did it work for you?
