Dragonfly CBD Narrow Spectrum 2000mg CBD Oil Review
Prior to starting my CBD journey, I would always see bottles of Dragonfly CBD whenever I popped into Boots to pick up a meal deal for myself. I'm not sure if it's because I like dragonflies or because the packaging always seemed to catch my eye but one way or another, it seems to have stuck in my memory. Why am I telling you this? I'm not entirely sure but I what I am trying to articulate is that I consider Dragonfly to be an OG brand, at least in my experience with the UK CBD market.
This CBD has to be the highest strength that I have tested to date but I should make it clear that a higher strength doesn't mean a CBD oil is more potent, just that the formula is more concentrated. A high strength CBD means that you get better value for money as you need to take less to achieve the same dosage than you would with a low strength CBD (CBDology, 2018). Each drop of this oil contains roughly 3.3mg of CBD and the bottle contains approximately 600 drops. I should also add that Dragonfly offer complete transparency with their products and you have the option to easily check the batch number of your CBD oil to receive the corresponding lab report to go with it.
You might at this point also be thinking about what 'narrow spectrum' means. I explore the varieties of CBD in this blog post but to keep things simple, narrow spectrum (according to Dragonfly themselves) is 'CBD in filtered form. In order to create a lighter flavour, we use advanced chromatography and distillation techniques during the extraction process. This creates a “super-distilled” CBD Oil' (Dragonfly CBD, 2021).
From a taste point of view this definitely was lighter, both in taste, colour and texture. I know you all know I'm not a fan of the taste of hemp but this was actually pleasant and not too overwhelming; I actually thought it had quite a buttery flavour to it. As part of my daily routine I would have 4 drops in the morning and 4 drops again before going to bed, roughly working out at 24mg of CBD per day.
This oil slotted really easily into my routine and after using it for a few days I realised that my usual aches and pains had disappeared. Whilst my daily dosage wasn't enough if I had a flare up, the fact that this oil was able to make my day to day activities much more bearable is certainly impressive. Most significantly I found that at the end of my working day that my sciatic nerve didn't seem as inflamed or tender and that my uterine spasms/cramps were a mild inconvenience rather than debilitating.
Regardless of whether you're new to CBD or a veteran, Dragonfly's range is definitely worth a look. Furthermore, the Dragonfly team are super helpful and knowledgable should you need any guidance or support.
Dragonfly CBD Narrow Spectrum 2000mg Oil is £94.50 for 30ml.
