Columbia Care Platinum Broad Spectrum 10% CBD SoftGel Capsules Review
Gel Capsules are probably my favourite way to take CBD, simply because I don't have to think about it. They can go straight into my daily pill organiser (an absolute game changer by the way) and I take them at the same time as the rest of my medication without having to set an alarm to remind me. Immediately there's brownie points for that but I won't let me preference for taking CBD influence the actual product. So, with that in mind, let me tell you my thoughts and feelings on these capsules.
A US company, Columbia Care have recently launched their product range in the UK and as a company they joined the Association of the Cannabinoid Industry (the UK’s most influential CBD industry group) in 2019. All their products are THC free, are 100% organic, vegan and non-GMO and go through vigorous 3rd party testing with easily accessible lab reports available on the relevant product pages.
Currently, their capsules are only available in one strength which each one containing 30mg of CBD. They state they are easy to swallow, which I do agree with; there was no need to drink copious amounts of water to get them down and they didn't leave an after-taste. I tended to take these in the morning alongside my other medication and despite containing a generous amount of CBD oil, they weren't excessively large like other supplements I have taken in the past.
For me, these capsules made a difference to my daily aches and pains which are all linked to my sciatica (which in turn is triggered by my endometriosis). Even on the days where I didn't feel quite as rested, these kept my inflammation and pain in check and I noticed a significant reduction in the need to use my TENS machine and/or hot water as a result. Furthermore, by the end of the day I felt I wasn't hunched over or struggling to move as my body hadn't seized up as much. That and I did find myself less likely to wake up in the night because I wasn't having to deal with shooting or burning pain in my lower back, pelvis and hips.
Bias for capsules aside, I liked these a lot. Once I've powered through my supply of CBD oils, I'll definitely be reordering these for myself.
Columbia Care Platinum Broad Spectrum 10% CBD SoftGel Capsules are £39.95 for 30 tablets.
