Testing Out Some CBD Products From The Drug.Store

I'm sure by now that you're aware of how I've basically become dependant on CBD oil as I find it's the best natural pain reliever for my chronic pelvic and back pain and after having a severe reaction to Mefenamic Acid and then finding out that I can no longer take Ibuprofen which is usually my go-to pain relief as it's in the NSAID family, I decided to try out CBD oil around November time last year after having the severe allergic reaction to Mefenamic Acid. This is because Paracetamol doesn't do much for the pain and Co-Codamol just makes my stomach feel weird so I was just stuck for pain relief and I was also super nervous about trying out any new prescribed medication my doctor may offer after having such a bad reaction (I legit thought I was having a stroke and/or dying as I couldn't breathe, I had chest pain and I was having tremors, it was so scary!). I then tried CBD and I've honestly not looked back since. It definitely helps my daily pain and makes my bad flare up days more bearable. I don't find that CBD helps as much with my back pain for weird reason, I don't know if it's because it's a nerve problem(?) and not just an achy back if that makes sense. There's an achy back and then there's a bad back and I deal with the latter on a daily basis. It's just pretty much become the norm for me now but it does limit my abilities but some days are better than others so I just kind of figure it out as I go along. CBD has definitely been an amazing discovery in terms of helping my pelvic pain which I suspect is endometriosis which is a chronic gynaecological disorder which unfortunately doesn't have a cure.

TheDrug.Store who are a CBD retailer who verify and test every product they have in store kindly gifted me some products to review. They sell CBD products for all different reasons from skincare, anxiety, menstrual health, pain relief (chronic/aches/muscle pain), sleeping problems and more. They gifted me two products of my choice and I chose the Medterra CBD Tincture 500mg 30ml £34.99* and the Fast CBD "Calm" Roll On £19.99*. I chose these two products as they both intrigued me. The Medterra CBD Tincture Oil is actually tasteless which is amazing as any CBD oil I've tried so far has a taste, some are bearable and some just taste disgusting. But I didn't know that you could get tasteless CBD oils so that alone really impressed me and that they offer it on their site at an affordable price. I personally have been spending £25.99 on a 10ml bottle by another brand since last year and I've been buying two or three bottles every month/6 weeks and it also doesn't taste very nice (but it's not the worst tasting oil I've tried) so the tasteless Medterra 30ml bottle at £34.99 is bargain in my eyes and it would definitely save me money if I continue to buy it. But... Does it work? Short answer: Yes. I feel like the Medterra CBD Tinture works just as well as the other brand who have been my go-to brand since last year. But in the long run as I've mentioned already, it works out cheaper for me to continue using the Medterra Tincture as it's 30ml not 10ml. So I shall 100% be going back for more once my bottle has run out. If you have already tried CBD oil yourself and have found that you can't deal with the taste then maybe the tasteless option is the way to go!

The second product I chose is the Fast CBD Relief "Calm" Roll On RRP £19.99* which I thought sounded great to pop in my bag to use when I'm feeling a bit anxious and panicky and also a good thing to try if I'm struggling to drift off the sleep. As soon as I tried this for the first time I noticed the scent smelled very familiar... it smells almost the exact same as the Sleepy body lotion from LUSH which I absolutely love and I actually use it when I'm feeling stressed or just can't sleep. I love it that much I have it in one of my drawers beside my bed. So to find something which I can throw in my bag which smells like Sleepy is great as I do find the scent alone helps to calm my nerves and helps me to sleep when I'm struggling to drift off. I do find that the Fast CBD Relief "Calm" Roll On to work in the same way as Sleepy and it definitely helps to calm my mind and also helps me to fall asleep quicker too. So I think this is a great product for anyone who suffers from bad anxiety as you can pop it in your bag easily and use whenever needed during your day. 

Another thing about TheDrug.Store which I thought was great is that they offer free delivery when you spend over £40 and also if you sign up to their emails you will get 10% off your first order for being a new customer!

Overall I really like the Medterra 500mg Tincture Oil and I find it works really well for my pelvic pain mainly. I shall definitely be picking it up again once I've finished with the bottle they sent over. I also think the Fast CBD Relief "Calm" Roll On is a great product, I wouldn't say it's a must have or a total game changer but I do think if you suffer with anxiety and/or sleep problems and haven't tried it before then I would say to pick it up and give it a whirl as I find it really helps me personally.
