CBD Oil Reviews: Your Guide to the Best CBD Oil

CBD oil has gained significant popularity thanks to its potential benefits and great versatility. Many people want to explore it as a natural remedy - and are looking for high-quality products. Harmony is one of the leading brands in the CBD industry, offering a wide range of products for those looking to benefit from the hemp extract's properties. Now you may be wondering, does CBD oil really live up to the hype? Let's explore CBD oil reviews and discuss the advantages and drawbacks of using a quality CBD product.

Whenever you read reviews, it's super important to keep in mind that experiences with CBD oil can differ from person to person, even if it is the exact same product that is used! Some may feel like they find relief from chronic pain, while others may experience better sleep quality or reduced anxiety [1]. These experiences with CBD oil are personal, and clinical trials are still in their infancy, which is why it's crucial not to make generalised medical claims [2]. Nevertheless, reviews can be a powerful tool to navigate the wide variety of CBD oils on the market and find a product that is right for you.

CBD Reviews

Customer reviews can be an invaluable resource in finding the very best product. In 2023, the UK market offers a wide range of options. So let's dive into some of the key factors you should consider when reading CBD oil reviews.

People use CBD for various reasons. So when looking for a well-reviewed CBD oil, take note of how users discuss the product's efficacy for certain applications. Keep an eye out, for example, for testimonies about the oil's calming effects, improvements in sleep quality, and how long it took to notice results.

When finding a high-quality CBD product, you want to consider the concentration of CBD as well as the availability of lab reports that confirm this concentration. Reputable companies, like Harmony, provide detailed lab reports - ensuring the oil's potency and quality. Always prioritise brands that are transparent about their product's CBD content.

Reading reviews written by new CBD users can also be helpful in understanding the product's potential effects. Look for comments about how and why they started using CBD oil and their initial experiences. This could provide insights into the product's user-friendliness and efficacy specifically for first-time users.

Remember, different oils on the market will offer different CBD strengths. As everyone's response to cannabinoids is different, you can only use other people's dosages as an orientation or starting point, but you will have to experiment a bit for yourself to find the concentration of CBD that best aligns with your needs.

Understanding CBD Oil

CBD oil - or cannabidiol oil - is derived from the hemp plant. When using CBD products, it's important to understand the differences between full-spectrum CBD oil, broad spectrum CBD, and CBD isolate.

Full Spectrum Hemp Oil contains a wide range of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids that can be found in the hemp plant. This type of CBD oil may provide an "entourage effect", where all compounds work in synergy for an enhanced effect [3]. It's worth noting that full spectrum CBD oil products may contain trace amounts of THC, but well within the legal limit and not high enough to cause any psychoactive effects.

Broad-Spectrum CBD is similar to full spectrum CBD, but with one key difference: the THC has been entirely removed in an additional purification step. If you'd rather avoid even trace amounts of THC - broad-spectrum products might be a better choice for you.

CBD Isolate refers to the purest form of CBD, as all other compounds have been entirely removed from the extract. This type of CBD is usually around 99% pure, providing a more focused experience for those seeking only the effects of CBD on its own.

Many CBD users have questions about the difference between CBD and THC. THC is a psychoactive compound, while CBD is non-psychotropic. This means that CBD has the potential to provide benefits without causing you to feel "high". CBD derived from hemp usually contains less than 0.2% THC, which complies with UK and EU regulations and guarantees that you'll not experience any psychoactive effects.

How to Take CBD Oil Drops

If you're new to CBD it can be overwhelming to determine which product and dosage suits your needs best. While edibles like CBD gummies and CBD capsules are easy to dose - as they come pre-measured - CBD oils and tinctures can be a bit more tricky! Always check the bottle of your CBD oil tincture in order to measure out how much of the product you have to take for a certain dosage. To start with begin with a low dosage of around 10-20mg of CBD and monitor your bodys reaction to the oil. Take your time, be patient and consistent with the product use before adjusting your dosage up or down in order to achieve the desired effect.

CBD oil can be taken in various ways. You can add it to your favourite drinks or recipes, consume it directly under your tongue (sublingually) or apply it topically as skin oil to areas experiencing pain. In all cases: start with a small amount of CBD and gradually increase the dosage based on your body's response!
