If you're a regular reader of my blog or follow me on my blog's instagram or my private instagram where I talk more about my day-to-day life living with chronic pain then you'll know that I swear by CBD products for my chronic pain, suspected endometriosis and my anxiety. I started using CBD after I became allergic to NSAID's after I had a severe allergic reaction to Mefenamic Acid which I was prescribed for my pelvic pain. Since that happened, I've basically been too scared to try any new prescription painkillers I've been offered by my doctor because I'm absolutely terrified of having the same reaction because I literally couldn't breathe properly, my heart rate was going crazy and I had an all-over itchy rash too. Obviously, CBD is natural and it's known for its anti-inflammatory properties and I do find that it does help with my day-to-day pain and my anxiety. My go-to CBD oil is the 600mg Oral Drops in the Berry flavoured from BeYou just because I really like the Berry flavour and it also works out cheaper than other CBD brands on the market as it's only £19.99 for a 30ml bottle which really is a bargain. I've also tried their Natural flavoured 300mg CBD Spray* which you can read about in this blog post. They recently sent me over their 1200mg CBD* to try out in the Lemon flavour which is the next strength up from 600mg that BeYou offer, so in this post, I'm going to be talking about how I've got on with the 1200mg Oil and whether or not I actually like the Lemon flavour.


You can buy the Oral Drops, Spray or the Dual Application option depending on your preference. I personally prefer using the Oral Drops just because it's what I've become accustomed to since I started using CBD oil but the spray option is handy as it's easier to apply and is probably a better option if you want to be more discreet when taking your CBD. Both the CBD Oral Drops and Spray start from 300mg (priced at £14.99) and goes up to 4800mg (priced at £79.99) and the Dual Application CBD starts from 1200mg (priced at £29.99) and goes up to 4800mg (priced at £79.99) and all three flavours are available.

I was a little worried about trying the Lemon flavour because I do have Gastritis and I do find that sometimes citrusy or acidic foods and drinks can set off my discomfort but it has gotten better over the recent months for some reason. The Lemon flavour isn't as bitter as I thought it was going to be, which I'll be honest I was happy about. It's more of a mild, slightly bitter-tasting Lemon flavour, however, I still prefer the Berry flavour out of the three flavours available though. But if I couldn't get hold of the Berry option then I would be happy to pick up the Lemon flavour instead.

The 1200mg CBD definitely helped me out a lot on any bad pain days I've had since I received it and because it's stronger in MG, I'm obviously using less amount of drops peruse which makes it last longer. I've even found that CBD has helped with my wisdom tooth pain as well which is fab considering one of my wisdom teeth has been really acting up on/off over the past few months and I've found out that I've got to be referred to the hospital to have it surgically removed because it's badly impacted (ugh!). Trust my wisdom teeth to start playing up when we're in the middle of a pandemic. My body really does hate me!

I think from now on I would like to have a bottle of 600mg in stock for daily use and then a1200mg bottle for my really bad pain days. I feel like the 600mg option does really help to get me through each day whether it's for my chronic pain, endo, anxiety, wisdom teeth pain/discomfort but the 1200mg is kind of like the extra boost I need on my really bad pain days.

Have you tried CBD before? If so, what are your thoughts and did it work for you?
