Shake CBD 500mg Oil Review
I have to say, I was impressed with this CBD oil from the get go. It arrived beautifully packaged and what I really loved is that it came with a little card with dosing guidance. Whilst I'm confident dosing for myself, I thought this was such a nice touch, especially for people who are new to taking CBD.
The first thing you notice when opening the bottle is the smell of oranges and it smells delicious. I'm always slightly weary that a flavoured CBD won't taste as good as it smells but I didn't have to worry about that with this product. The orange flavour is delicious, there's no weird artificial aftertaste and it covers the hemp flavour entirely.
The other thing I like about the oil is the pipette. I appreciate that from bottle to bottle there's not much difference but Shake CBD explain that their pipette picks up 16.6mg of CBD with each squeeze. So once again, it allows you to really closely monitor the dosage you take as opposed to guessing. Shake CBD's oil is full spectrum and has a coconut derived MCT oil.
I actually started taking this when I was in the midst of a severe endometriosis flare; we're talking uterus spasms, shooting pains down my hips, back ache, bloating... You get the idea. As a result, I increased my daily dosage and took 4 pipettes throughout the day, equalling around 64mg of CBD.
Once in my system, I felt that I was less anxious and that I was holding less tension in my body. It took the edge off said serious flare, reduced my lower back pain and spasms to a dull ache. Flare over with, I then reduced my dosage to 2 or 3 pipettes (33-50mg) of CBD which was enough to deal with my day to day pain. Also, I'm not sure if it's the energising association of the orange but I definitely felt I had more energy when taking this oil which was a nice added bonus.
I really liked this oil and it's one that I think I'll go back to time and time again.
Shake CBD 500mg oil is £31.99 for 30ml.
