AD | Trying CBD Oil For The Very First Time - Mistatera*

I did a fair bit of work with a CBD website earlier this year - compiling information on clothing, homeware, beauty and nutrition products which utilise this 'so-hot-right-now' [bonus points to you if you read that in the Mugatu / Zoolander way] ingredient in their composition. As well as learning a lot during this time, I became mad keen on trying CBD infused stuff out for myself; after spending so many hours writing about its benefits. 

The first thing I tried following this learning curve / massive case of self-influencing was a CBD infused Cleansing Milk [which I featured here] - and I've tried other bits since then too. But never the drops I'd heard so much about. Until now.

Mistatera very kindly sent me a bottle of their 5% CBD Drops* to try out - something I'd never tried before, but an experience I've been really impressed by. From my very first impressions of opening the box up to reveal such stylish, classy packaging [no tacky ganja signs here huns, just sophisticated branding with gold embossing] to reading more about it / having my first drops, I've been dead impressed. Let's have some real-talk on CBD Drops, anxiety and what it's like to try them. Coming straight from the horses mouth. IT'S ME, I'M THE HORSE.

I'm sure you guys will have heard about CBD Drops just as much as I have over the past 12 months. This trend and use of hemp / cannabinoids in beauty & health products has emerged from seemingly nowhere and properly flourished; with huge brands such as Milk Makeup proudly using them in their bestselling products [which I'm still desp to try.]

What I like about Mistatera [and what made me decide to try this brand, as opposed to others I've seen or been contacted by] is their ethos and idea of 'balance.' As well as that bangin' branding [which looks classy and sleek, and not garish and playing on 'stoner' 'cannabis' ideas - which is not what CBD is about, but what a lot of brands seem to play on] Mistatera's range is vegan-friendly & uses top quality, full spectrum cannabinoids; blended with organic ingredients & housed in glass, recyclable packaging.

Mistatera CBD Drops are a dietry supplement from CO2 extracted hemp resin with full spectrum cannabinoids. Full spectrum cannabinoids provide higher levels of relief than CBD isolate. Drops with 500mg of CBD [like these ones] not only improve everyday living, but also help heal acute diseases. Everyday use is said to boost your bodily functions; resulting in increased energy levels, better sleep, reduced dizziness & overall happiness.

In its 10ml glass bottle, the CBD resin is dissolved in organic coconut oil. Coconut oil [known as superfood] is high in healthy saturated fats. Two of the many benefits this has is that it raises the god HDL cholesterol in your blood; which is is linked to reduced risks of heart disease & boosts brain function.

CBD [cannabidiol] is the main substance in hemp plant that has potential healing effects for various conditions and diseases. Some of the positive effects of CBD benefit:

Mental Health
- Calms, alleviates depression, anxiety, OCD etc
- Reduces stress & migraines
- Works against insomnia

Nervous System
- Reduces epileptic seizures, if you suffer with them
- Suppresses neuropathic pain & prevents other kinds of pain

Immune System
- Acts as an anti-inflammatory
- Inhibits the development of cancer cells

Cardiovascular System
- Delays / prevents the development of cardiovascular disorders
- Influences blood cell function
- Reduces the cardiovascular response to various types of stress

Pain Relief
- Reduces pain, muscle cramps
- Alleviates arthritis

Why did I decide to try it?

Well, aside from all those bangin' benefits listed above, I am no stranger to stress & anxiety; with PTSD triggered by a traumatic accident [and several complications that have occurred since], and anxiety aplenty due to a few really tough years. Said traumatic accident and complications have also resulted in me having several surgeries within a fairly short timespan, the after effects of which can be painful [and are just something that I'm used to now.] Although I'm mostly back to normal, I will have some discomfort forever. And as much as I've accepted that, I'm not gonna say no to something that'll potentially help reduce this.

How have I found it?

Pretty good tbh, I can definitely agree with some of the things it's said to promote in ya body. It's definitely helped me sleep / regulate my sleeping patterns better, and I feel like some of the tightness in my muscles and scar tissue has loosened a little too, which is a great feeling. The oil does give you a feeling of calm too - but cos I'm not used to this serene feeling, it's been resulting in me dropping power-naps, so I've learned to take it later in the day now, where it matters less if I nod off 😂

One thing noone seems to talk about in these reviews is the taste of the CBD Oil. I don't know what I was expecting - and it by no means tastes bad, but it's quite.... herbal. Which, when seeing that typed up, I realise I should have anticipated, but didn't; ahahahaha. It smells quite strong [not like weed, just sorta leafy, as I say] like a strong tea, but the more days you take it, the more accustomed you get to it.

Would I recommend it?

Yeah, I reckon I would. I'm not saying it's gonna be an instant miracle cure for your health problems & life predicaments, but it definitely promotes feelings of calmness and has a long list of health benefits that I don't think can or should be ignored. Mistatera promote balance, sustainability and organic values too; all of which are things I respect and like to promote when looking at the brands I work with - so they get bonus points here too.
