Expensive but well worth it for pain relief and less mood swings!
“The oil arrived quickly and well packaged.
I am a chronic pain sufferer, with damaged muscles and bones in my left shoulder, clavicle, and upper back and have been for nearly 12 years.
I became a qualified aromatherapist to try and create blends that would help ease the pain and reduce my dependance on medication/opiates. Long term usage of any pain medication (internal or external) creates a resistance within the body over time, and so I found myself looking for alternative products so I could rotate my pain management and extend the time it would take to build up that resistance.
I was offered the chance to review this oil and although it was expensive, I had previously used a CBD Coconut Oil balm CBD CureTM COCONUT OIL WITH 300mg CBD hemp oil extract – CO² extracted and decarboxylated CBD (Cannabinol) that was also very expensive but was absolutely amazing for the pain, so I went ahead and paid my pennies.
I am very glad I did. Although I don’t use it every night – as mentioned above I rotate my pain relief – I use it externally only. It smells like all CBD products do, and as I have previously tried oral only use CBD that I couldn’t finish because just the thought of taking it (after 10 nights use) started to make me ill, and I struggled to keep it down – don’t get me wrong when I was taking it, the effects were noticable, I just couldn’t take the taste. It stays in the mouth for a long time and heaven forbid
you burp! So I haven’t dared take this oil orally, but I found it doesn’t matter as it seems to work perfectly fine massaged into the painful area.
I have also blended it with other essential oils and it still works great, and helps to reduce the smell somewhat. This is great as you can then tailor it for night-time blends (chamomile or sweet marjoram, which are both analgesics and sedatives) or daytime (rosemary, black pepper, ginger, peppermint, which are all stimulants and analgesics)
Whenever I use it I find I need less sleep and wake up very alert and chirpy. Chronic pain sufferers and their families will know all too well the mood swings, the lack of sleep, the feelings of frustration and overall exhaustion, so to feel more energised, cheerful and chirpy is a very strange thing indeed. So chirpy in fact that it’s freaking him indoors out! Although the product description only recommends 1-2 drops for the pain area, my pain area is upper left back, shoulder and upper front left
chest. To cover this area with just the hemp oil on it’s own we found we needed to use betwen 6-8 drops, but it is quite a large area. The oil itself is a yellowy green colour and admittedly doesn’t look very pleasant, but as I say it works a treat.
Disclaimer: I was offered this product at a reduced price on the condition I give an unbiased and honest review, which I always try to do.“

Good product, praise for customer service.
“I’ve been intrigued with the possible health benefits of CBD oil for some time now, and am glad to see it’s slowly catching on as more and more people become aware of it. First of all I must offer high praise for the extremely fast international shipping. Customer service is sadly neglected by many companies nowadays, so to find a company that does make an effort for its customers is a major plus, in my book.
I was anxious to see if this product genuinely provided any health benefits; to cut a long story short I have a minor medical complaint which the medical establishment has failed to adequately treat, so am always looking for ways to improve my overall health and well-being.
In terms of results – I can only add to the existing positive reviews; I have used the product both internally and externally and am experiencing some definite noticeable health improvements eventhough I have only been taking this product for a few days.
However, what makes this a 4-star product as opposed to a 5-star product for me, is the smell and taste. I was absolutely baffled to read other reviewers claiming that these are relatively mild; I had to even stop for a second to make sure they were talking about the same product. For me the smell (when using externally) was pretty noticeable, even after giving it a few minutes, other people did seem to notice and remark on it. The taste, when taking the product internally, was extremely strong almost to the point of overbearing. Though it is possible to take it straight onto the tongue, I would recommend masking the taste with some amount of water or juice.
Now it’s true that often the things that are very good for you don’t always taste good; of course the health benefits for sure outweigh any hesitations with regards to the smell or taste, and will not stop me re-purchasing. However for me, it is what makes this a ‘very good’ product, and not quite a ‘flawless’ product.
For the absence of any doubt, I was afforded the opportunity to receive a percentage discount on the purchase price for this product, in exchange for the provision of my honest customer review and feedback.
I am not affiliated with the company or any of it’s employees, and my views are entirely my own.”

5.0 out of 5 stars
Organic Hemp Natur CBD Oil (10 ml) – 5% Natural Cannabidiol – Medical Cannabis Oil – Safe, Calming, Relaxing Essential Oil
I have been meaning to get round to trying this CBD oil for sometime now as I already know the benefits of CBD in weed and this is as close as the same stuff. The CBD is the part that does not get you high and is therefore legal to take (THC gets you high) I live with 3 life time incurable conditions, one of them being what is classed as the most painful condition on earth C.R.P.S/ RSD and believe me it is, no amount of meds can get rid of the pain so sufferers like myself live out lives in constant agony being broken only by flair ups where the pain gets worse. Well I have started to take this as soon as it came, 5 drops twice a day. It is a brown oil that is 95% olive oil and 5% CBD oil so the taste is not too bad, the smell is very similar to cannabis or weed, but the taste is mild hemp. It comes in a brown glass bottle to protect the contents from sunlight and is recommended to consume within 3 months of opening. I got this item at a reduced price in exchange for a honest and un biased review, which I will give on every one I do, no matter what the cost etc.
I spend a lot of time testing the things I buy and like to keep to not only a good standard but also a honest one, so the star ratings I give are what I rate them at personally and from my own experience (or my Mrs experience for girl’ly stuff) I hope that you may have found this review helpful in your quest to decide whether to buy this product , if so then thank you for taking the time to read it.

Great stuff REALLY does work with pain relief!
I have only used this externally and it does work!
It alleviates the pain in my lower back, I didnt initially hold out much hope, but given the opportunity to try this at a discounted price for an honest review I thought Id give it a go, I’ll try anything over the strong pain killers I’m forced to take when its bad, and it does actually work!
It tastes too bad for me to take orally, but with the results I’m getting on application, I’m more than happy to keep applying it.

It’s not a miracle but it gives me some relief
My sister and I got this together as we both suffer with pain: my sister suffers with arthritis in her knees while I suffer from an undiagnosed kidney pain. We have tried CBD oil already with varying degree’s of success.
So it’s super easy to use, couple of drops on the tongue or rub directly onto the affected area. Okay so it tastes foul, like really disgusting so we stick with rubbing it onto the affected area, only 5 drops though. For my sister she has noticed a significant reduction in pain, for myself not so much. I have noticed a difference yes but not significant, I don’t know why, maybe my body just reacts differently I don’t know or maybe it only works with certain types of pain again I don’t know but I’m still going to keep using it because any benefit is better than none and it’s all natural so no extra chemicals going into my body. It rubs in quickly which is a huge added bonus for me as I hate waiting for things to absorb. The smell doesn’t last too long but I don’t notice it now anyways.
Some may be concerned that it’s very expensive with no guarantee’s of relief but if like I you’ve suffered for a long time anyways even the smallest chance is worth grabbing, and for my sister it does indeed help.
I received the CBD oil at a reduced rate in exchange for my honest and unbiased review which I have happily provided here.

I bought this due to the stress I’m having at the moment with it being the exam period.
I believe this is legal due to the % of the bottle
It does give a more relaxing feeling and honestly, I feel more awake.
It has a sort of natural leafy smell, which isn’t unpleasant.
I would recommend this product for someone who wants something like this.

Helps with my daily headaches
I heard about the benefits of CBD Hemp Oil from a friend, who has been using it for a long time, for pain relief reasons. I never thought to actually give it a go, until I was offered the product at a discounted rate. In all honesty, I just couldn’t justify spending more money on another trend/fad when there isn’t enough evidence (yet!) that it actually works. I am pleased to see that more evidence has since emerged, and it seems that more and more people are discovering the benefits of taking CBD Oil as a natural/alternative medicine.
I have been using it for a couple of weeks now, to combat my daily headaches that seem to attack mid-afternoon/early evening. I am always reluctant to depend on medicines such as paracetamol, because I feel this will affect their long-term effectiveness:- especially if I am having to take them on a daily basis. I have always been a fan of aromatherapy oils and have used various ‘scents’ to treat my headaches, but they just don’t seem to be working as well anymore. CBD Hemp Oil is known for its pain relief properties, and I am happy to report that I have definitely noticed a difference after applying it externally when I can feel a headache coming on. I have also used it as a massage oil when my back and neck are taking strain; now whether I found relief afterwards because of the massage or the oil itself, I’m not sure, but the comfort did seem to last much longer than just a massage on it’s own. I haven’t taken the oil internally, as I am not too keen on the taste – especially after judging it by the smell. This is possibly something to try in the future.
The product itself did arrive in good time; it’s important to note that this is international shipping and therefore next day/two day delivery isn’t possible (I live not in the UK). I will be sure to order my next batch in advance, but this should last me quite a while.

Works to help my anxiety
The Hemp Natur CBD Oil is great for helping with my anxiety. I have had problems with anxiety for as long as I can remember all through school and work it makes me very socially awkward. I get very anxious about going to new places and meeting new people. This oil really helps relieve the stress of everyday things for me. It is very easy to use just 5 drops on your tong. It does smell pretty bad and tastes bad as well but if you can get over that it really works wonders for me. It came with a sheet with lots of information about Hemp oil on it which is helpful and there is a website on there of you won’t more information as well. It was packaged well and arrived quickly. I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
