As you're probably all aware now, I am a spoonie and as part of my pain journey I've been looking into adding CBD into my everyday life and we all know that I'm about anything that's looks aesthetically pleasing so I was really excited when these goodies from Honest Hemp arrived on my doorstep. They very kindly sent me across a range of their products to test out and see how it'll work not only on my chronic pain and health issues but also if it might help with my sleep issues.

Honest Hemp
Honest Hemp is a lovely company that has been around since 2014 and they not only pride themselves on quality and sustainability but above everything about being honest. All of their products are created with only organic ingredients from ethical suppliers and best of all they don't cost the world to buy! They have a great range of products from CBD oils and sprays to edibles and topical treatments that are all made with certified organic hemp and are the most potent CBD products on the market.

CBD Sprays
The Honest Hemp CBD sprays come in such compact bottles that they're perfect for having everywhere so I never have to worry about not having it to hand if I'm having a pain or anxiety flare up. I've been trying out both the original plain CBD spray and also the orange flavoured spray. My favourite out of the two has definitely got to be the orange flavoured one, it literally reminds me of a chocolate orange! I will say the original CBD spray has a bit of an aftertaste that I'm not particularly a fan of (I'm insanely fussy with tastes!) so it has taken me a little bit of time to get used to but it's not really that bad anymore. Both of these CBD sprays are 300mg in 30ml bottles and you can take 17-28 sprays, 2-3 times a day.

I don't currently take a fair amount of CBD every single day and I'm slowly titrating up my doses so at the moment I've actually been having 10 sprays once a day under my tongue on a daily basis then another 10 sprays later in the day if I'm having a bad day with pain or anxiety and at the moment that dose is working for me. I find the sprays really useful for keeping in my purse or on my desk so when my anxiety is bad or I start getting an anxiety attack, I can use it straight away and I find it so much easier to calm my anxious, constantly on the go mind. 

CBD Essential Salve
Life as a spoonie something ALWAYS hurts and this topical essential salve has been my go-to for putting on anything that pains me, I really need to buy a second tub to keep in my work locker cause this one is getting pretty beat up being carried around everywhere! You can get a 60ml jar for £19.99 and it contains 300mg in the entire jar. The Essential Salve is made with a Shea butter base and generously infused with lavender and chamomile so not only does it help relieve pain and reduce inflammation but it is also super nourishing for dry skin and it's really relaxing. 

I've not only tried this salve for any joint pains and muscles aches but every night before bed I've been rubbing a little bit between my fingertips and gently rubbing it into my temples with my eyes closed for a few minutes to truly relax and de-stress from the day. I've also really been loving using this on my knees, I've had awful problems with my knees since I danced when I was a teen and I find that if I've had a really long day or I've been on shift, I pop a decent layer of this salve all over my knees and the next morning, not only do I have baby soft skin but I'm also not walking around like an old lady. Keep your eyes peeled to see this in a reel over on my Instagram page next week!

CBD Gummies
These Honest Hemp CBD Gummies were the first product I delved into when they all arrived and honestly they are the easiest and funnest way to add CBD into your everyday life. I mean who doesn't love eating gummy bears?! Each gummy bear is the mixed fruit flavour and contains 5mg per sweet so you can get a 40 pack of the gummy bears for only £12.99 which is a total of 200mg. Honest Hemp recommend you can eat 6-8 sweets up to three times a day with a total 30 gummies max. I find these gummy bears such an easy way to get into CBD especially if you aren't a fan of the straight taste of CBD because its literally like you're eating sweets!

I've been using these CBD Gummies particularly when I feel like my anxiety is really starting to flare up and they've helped me so much with calming the intrusive thoughts. I wish that Honest Hemp did these in mini containers too so that I can take them on the go in my purse everyday because sometimes I use those small over the shoulder style bags and these jars would pretty much fill the entire bag.

Have you tried CBD yet?
