Bristol CBD Oil Review

As a person who lives with many painful health conditions, I’m always on the lookout for new pain relief options. I feel very lucky, therefore, to be collaborating with Bristol CBD for this amazing giveaway (edit – Now closed) Before we get into that however, I’d love to share my experience of using Bristol CBD’s full spectrum CBD oil with you.

Who are Bristol CBD?

Bristol CBD are a specialist CBD oil supplier that deal exclusively in full spectrum CBD oils. They offer a range of 6 different strengths of oil, from 300mg right through to 2000mg. Each strength is available in a oil dropper or spray bottle. There is also a paste available if that’s your preference.

The company was created by two natural healthcare practitioners, inspired by the many stories they had heard about the amazing health benefits of CBD.  They produce their own high quality CBD products, all of which are extracted from handpicked organic hemp sativa, using CO2 extraction. Each extract contains CBD (cannabidiol), and the full spectrum of healthy cannabinoids as well as terpenes and omega 3 fatty acids. The THC content is safely below the EU legal threshold of 0.2%. Lab reports for this CBD oil are available on their website, so you can be sure that you’re getting a legal, safe and high quality product. The product is also 100% vegan, which is something that is very important to me.

Bristol CBD are a small, independent company that are genuinely passionate about what they do. Their reviews on Trustpilot are glowing and they have a rating of excellent, which is no mean feat with the honesty laden online review culture. I was honoured that they chose me to write a review of their fantastic product.

What are the health benefits of CBD

CBD is a buzz word nowadays, but in the event that you’re still in the dark about it, please be assured, it’s not marijuana! CBD (cannabidiol), whilst derived from the cannabis plant, has such a minute percentage of THC (the psychoactive aspect of cannabis) that it cannot make you “high”. It is also perfectly legal in the UK and has been for some time. There is a very helpful blog section on the Bristol CBD website which has plenty more information on the subject.

The health benefits of CBD are many and varied. As someone with health conditions that remain unresolved by conventional medicine, I am a huge advocate for the use of CBD health products and cannabis based medicines in general, for the treatment of chronic and terminal illnesses.

CBD has been successfully used in the treatment of chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and M.E, as well as epilepsy, anxiety and depression. It has also been very successfully used alongside cancer treatments. I won’t provide links to lots of case studies here, as a quick Google search will provide you with all you need to know.

I’ve tried and tested a quite a number of CBD products myself in the quest to find comfort from a life of continuous pain. This is why I feel that my knowledge and experience will provide you with a fair and useful review of this product. I would like to clarify that I am not being compensated for this review, however, I did receive a bottle of Bristol CBD oil for free in exchange for my honest review.

My experience using Bristol CBD Oil

As someone who understands the desperation of needing solace from pain, sleeplessness and anxiety, I feel ethically bound to provide an honest review to my fellow sufferers. I have no intention of providing false hope or miracle cure suggestions here. What I will give you, is a thorough report of my experience using Bristol CBD oil, which I really hope will help you to decide if this could be a good option for you.

Please remember that all medicines and health supplements, whether prescribed or complimentary, react differently in different individuals. My review is specific to my experience and you may not necessarily have the same one.

My Illness

I don’t go into the details of my health conditions too much in my blog, however, for the purpose of helping others suffering with similar issues… Firstly there’s hypermobility syndrome. This caused sacroilliac joint dysfunction in my pregnancy and left me with frequently subluxating hips, which will eventually develop into arthritis, if it hasn’t already. I also have arthritis of the knees and my patella subluxate regularly too. As a result of these conditions, I live with severe hip, groin, leg and spinal pain daily and haven’t walked without the support of crutches for over 5 years.

Recently, I’ve also been diagnosed with endemetriosis and large polyps in the uterus, for which I’m due to undergo surgery. On top of this, I suffer from undiagnosed nerve issues including pain, regular foot drop in one or both feet and severe arm spasms. Samples of my nerves have been sent to the rare diseases lab at Oxford University to investigate this, but I am currently still in the dark.

Bristol CBD Oil Usage Diary

Day 1

I received the oil today and was very excited to try it. I’ve read all of the literature and great reviews about Bristol CBD. Honestly, I am going into this with somewhat high hopes, so will try to remain level headed.

I realise that I’ve been supplied the 300mg CBD oil, which it suggests is for sensitive people and beginners. This causes some concern that I won’t feel any effects, as I am neither a beginner, nor sensitive to CBD.

At 11am I take the first dose. The information leaflet suggests that you take it 2 hours after prescribed medication (I take a lot of painkillers). I’m incredibly pleasantly surprised by the sheer strength of this oil. I have had CBD oils claiming to be 1000mg that haven’t had anywhere near the impact that this 300mg does. My main feeling is an overall sense of relaxation. Whilst it doesn’t kill the pain for me, it certainly helps me to deal with it.

At 3pm, I’m not quite as desperate for my next opiate intake as I usually am. This is really significant for me. This is definitely the best CBD product that I’ve tried to date.

Day 2

I ended up taking 3 doses yesterday and definitely felt more relaxed and able to cope with my pain. The doses of my prescribed medication all wound up being spread further apart than usual, which was very satisfying.

I have no doubts whatsoever about the quality of Bristol CBD oil at this point and am really keen to adjust the dosage to my needs. It is lovely to be more relaxed and not itching for the next opiates, 3 hours after the last dose.  But I do feel that this has the potential to go so much further for me, at the correct dosage.

I plan to up the intake to 4 times today, leaving the last dose until bed time. I’ve heard amazing things about the restful sleep CBD can bring, i’ve just not experienced it. With the level of relaxation I’ve experienced so far with this oil, however, it makes sense that this would be the case.

Day 3

Ok, wow! Last night something very odd happened. I slept! I slept a normal human amount and went to bed incredibly early (for me). As someone who goes to bed between 2.30 and 3.00am every night (morning), I’m endlessly tired. Last night I fell asleep on the sofa at 10pm. My husband nearly died of shock, as he’s always in bed hours before I am, and I had to take myself off to bed at 10.30.

I got up this morning at 6, (I have a 4-year-old!) but this time, after having 7 HOURS SLEEP!! This is the most amount of continuous sleep I’ve had for about 6 years. I feel wonderful. Actually, I genuinely don’t remember this feeling of not being completely exhausted. I think we can say that the extra dose was a win. Just a remarkable transformation.

Day 4

So, I’ve given Bristol CBD a thorough testing for 3 days and have to say that I’m stunned with the success. If such a small dose has this level of impact on my mood and ability to sleep, I’m genuinely excited to try a higher dosage and see where it takes me.

Obviously I have a lot of health conditions, most of which are here to stay. If you live with chronic pain though, you will understand that even a 25% reduction in suffering would be absolutely life changing. I highly recommend giving Bristol CBD oil a try if you have any symptoms or conditions that are similar to mine.

I am a Prize Warrior – My Success

I am a Prize Warrior

I consider myself to be a Prize Warrior (and this is the only self congratulary post that you will get from me) for two reasons. One – I have sought out and been successful in winning a lot of very cool stuff. Some people may have been more successful, but it’s all relative and I am incredibly happy with my achievements so far.

Two – I suffer with an enormous amount of pain every day of my life. Whilst this is not the subject matter of my blog, it’s a huge obstacle  in my life that I have to overcome in order to continue ‘as normal’. Anybody with a chronic pain condition will agree, I’m sure. Pain is very limiting, it makes everything in life challenging and less enjoyable than it used to be. It makes spoiling my family so much more difficult than it was when I could hold down a well paid job! The fact that I have found a way to provide and carry out fun and often pricey trips and holidays for my boy, in spite of my struggles, makes me feel at least a little warrior-esque.

Winning at winning

Partially so that I can chase up missing prizes and partially as a reminder that it’s all worth it, I have tried to drop the congratulations emails and tweets from my wins into a folder for safe keeping. On writing this blog post, however, I realised that many of my prizes turned up unexpectedly through the mail or I received a phone call about them instead! Therefore, unfortunately, I am going to have to rely on my somewhat hazy memory in order to compile a ‘complete’ list of my wins.

This brings me to an important point. It’s a great idea to keep a record of what you have won, for the reasons that I have pointed out above. May I suggest that you keep a more thorough list than I have done up to this point. I intend to regularly update the list on my blog from now on, with ALL of my wins! So hopefully, going forward, I will have put my own suggestion into practice!

What can you win?

How long is a piece of string? You can win literally anything. Prizes really can be as small as a pen or as large as a multi-thousand pound dream holiday. And yes, they do exist. And yes, I have experienced them! The smaller prize competitions are of course easier to come by and generally easier to win, however, hold out for the big wins, because they are there!

In addition to my love of competitions in general, there is a special place in my heart for those giveaways offering bizarre prizes. In this vein, I will be running my own regular “oddest prize of the month” competition. As the title suggests, whomever finds and submits to me the prize that I consider to be the strangest or most random that I have seen that month, will themselves win a prize. Look out for this in my giveaways section.

Of course, there are people who have been doing this for a lot longer than I have and have a far more impressive collection of prizes (Di Coke for example, who is my absolute comping hero!) But my arsenal of wins is not to be sniffed at, with tea bags at one end of the scale and 4 luxury holidays/breaks in the space of a little over a year at the other end!
