CBD Brothers has fast become one of the leading vendors of CBD products in the UK. This brand grows their hemp and cannabis plants on farms throughout Europe and harvest them at the perfect time before they begin the drying process.
Once the plants are fully dried out, the team at CBD Brothers use a C02 extraction method to obtain the oil that they use in their increasingly popular products.
What makes CBD Brothers so reputable is that they ensure that their cannabidiol products contain a full spectrum of cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids so that you get the maximum benefits.
As it stands, CBD Brothers have 6 different types of CBD oil on offer; 2 sativa blends, 1 hybrid blend and 3 indica blends. Their CBD capsules also come in range of strains and strengths.
For the purpose of this review, I tested out the Blue Edition CBD oil which comes from a sativa strain, and the Purple Edition CBD Capsules which comes from a hybrid strain. Read on below for my thoughts!
CBD Brothers Blue Edition CBD Oil
- 30ml Bottle
- 2000mg Strength
- 25% CBD
- 5% CBD Per 10ml
The Packaging of CBD Brothers Blue Edition CBD Oil
Often, you can immediately tell the quality of a CBD product by simply looking at the packaging. Generally speaking, the better the packaging, the better the product.
My bottle of CBD Brothers Blue Edition CBD Oil came in a nice cardboard box with a window at the front which shows you the label on the bottle.
The bottle of CBD oil itself is fairly standard in terms of what you would expect. There are no fancy labels; simply a basic design that tells you exactly what you are getting from your oil.
The bottle comes with a dropper which is pretty common with most CBD oil products as this is the easiest way of administering your daily CBD dose.
For the purposes of my review, I chose the 10ml bottle, but it is also available in 30ml and 100ml for those who want to use the Blue Edition as their regular CBD oil.
The Effects of CBD Brothers Blue Edition CBD Oil
It is important to point out that this is one of the weakest oils that CBD Brothers offer, so I definitely wasn’t expecting any massive effects. However, there were some things that I noticed after testing the oil for a few days.
First of all, the energizing effect was definitely noticeable. This surprised us at first, because we assumed that the relaxing and sedating effect would be more prominent.
However, after a little research, I discovered why this was the case. The Blue Edition oil is sativa based. Those who know their cannabis will know that indica is the type that will sedate you more than sativa.
Within a couple of minutes, I started to notice an uplifting effect. It is important to remember that CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that you don’t get any high from it. The initial feeling was one of a calming yet energetic effect.
Any anxiety or stress had dissipated and my mind felt much clearer. I felt that the fatigue of the morning had completely gone and I was ready to tackle the day ahead which was certainly a nice feeling.
I tested this bottle out for a number of weeks and the effects just kept getting better. One thing that I would say is that if you suffer from insomnia and you want a CBD product to help you sleep then this one is probably not for you.
If you want a CBD product to help you with insomnia then you would be better with an indica based CBD oil, which CBD Brothers also stock. Overall, I was really pleased with this and would definitely recommend it for those who suffer with mild anxiety or general fatigue.
CBD Brothers Purple Edition CBD Capsules
- 30 Capsules Per Bottle
The Packaging of the CBD Brothers Purple Edition CBD Capsules
For this review, I decided to test out the Purple Edition CBD Capsules. The oil that I tested out was a sativa, whereas the Purple Edition capsules are a hybrid blend which is a mix of sativa and indica, so I was curious to see if the effects would differ.
The packaging of these capsules is very similar to what I got with the bottle of CBD oil that I reviewed above. You get 30 capsules which are stored in a nice little tub with a screw on lid featuring the famous CBD Brothers logo.
The Effects of CBD Brothers Purple Edition CBD Capsules
These capsules are available in three different strengths; 50mg, 100mg and 250mg. I wanted to find out how much I could benefit from them and wanted maximum effects, so I went for the 250mg. It is a little more expensive, but it is the strongest and most potent capsule that CBD Brothers offer.
I started taking these capsules in the evenings because I wanted to see if they would help me to drift off to sleep earlier. Unfortunately, I found that they didn’t really help any insomnia issues.
However, I did notice several positive effects that are definitely worth mentioning. First of all, there was the initial body and mind calming feeling. Any stress simply melted away.
One other thing that I noticed which I wasn’t expecting to notice so soon was joint pain reducing massively. I suffer with a lot of aches and pains due to numerous conditions and the capsules really helped to reduce that.
It definitely had a noticeable effect on anxiety, too. Overall, I would definitely say that this is a product that I would continue to take as it certainly has plenty of benefits to offer. However, as I mentioned above, if you are looking for something to help you sleep then go for something that is indica dominant.
