Do you struggle with anxiety, insomnia, or chronic pain? If so, you may be thinking about turning to hemp oil or CBD oil. More and more chronic pain patients are turning to these natural options now, especially in the wave of the opioid crackdown.
I was offered a sample of a full spectrum hemp product in exchange for an opportunity to review it. I recorded a video over the course of a few weeks of me using the product and my experience with it.
You can see that here.
Below is my full written review.
What I Used
I was given a 750mg sample of Zion Medicinals Full Spectrum Hemp Oil. Its ingredients include full spectrum 7 cannabinoid profile hemp (including .3% THC) and fractionated coconut oil. This high potency formula is single-sourced organic hemp from Colorado.
How Zion Medicinals Helped Me
This is my first time trying a full spectrum hemp oil that is meant to be taken orally, but I have used CBD lotion in the past with good results.
This full spectrum hemp oil contains 0.3% THC, which is the legal limit for THC in all 50 states. Since I had not tried a product like this before, I didn’t realize that (for me), I would feel a bit “high”, but not actually high. It was more like a peaceful, calm, and relaxed feeling.
Unfortunately, while I was recording my process of trying this formula, I did say the word “high” in one of my videos (you’ll see it), and it greatly angered someone that I did not immediately mention there was THC in this product in that particular clip.
So, if it upset one person, it may upset another. I had no idea that CBD products got such a bad rap or that people associated them directly with smoking a joint. This is nothing like that. (How do I know? I’ve smoked a joint…or maybe more, but that’s neither here nor there.) I do NOT like the way I feel on marijuana, so I can say, from experience, that this full spectrum hemp oil did not make me feel “high”, but since I have a very sensitive system, it takes only a small dose of anything for me to feel its effects, and that’s what I interpreted them as at the time.
So, other than teaching me a very important lesson about how CBD oil and hemp products may be misunderstood in everyday society, I also experienced the most calming, peaceful, relaxing sleep (during naps) I’ve ever had in my life.
My anxiety can get very high, and I can get hit out of the clear blue sky with fatigue so suddenly that I have to take a nap NOW, or I feel like I’m going to pass out, vomit, and have a panic attack all at the same time.
Unfortunately, when I feel sleepy, it triggers my anxiety. Why? Because I have a morbid phobia of not sleeping, which triggers my OCD! (This is the first time I’ve written about this publicly, and it’s actually a big step for me).
So, the hemp oil helped to calm my anxiety enough that I could take the naps I needed and feel more peaceful and refreshed when I woke up.
Absolutely worth it!
Wait. How Does It Taste?
Do you watch that show on Netflix, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? If so, you know the theme song. If not, some of the lyrics are, “Females are strong as hell!” Well, just replace ‘females’ with Zion Medicinals Full Spectrum Hemp Oil, and you’ve got the basic idea. It has a VERY strong taste.
But Does It Work for Chronic Pain?
For some, this product might work wonders for chronic pain. Since I don’t have a constant chronic pain condition like fibromyalgia, I can’t speak to that directly. However, it did not seem to have an effect on my chronic neck and shoulder pain (when that flares up, it seems to take an act of God to get it to stop), so, this product did not help me in that way.
However, it did make me feel less anxious about my pain as well as more centered and relaxed, so I greatly appreciated that.
I know there are lots more spoonie bloggers out there who will be reviewing this product, so look out for those, because I’m sure you will find plenty of people who have found true pain relief with this hemp oil.
A Little About Zion Medicinals
Brian Caruso, the founder of Zion Medicinals saw his wife suffering with chronic Lyme disease symptoms, and nothing seemed to be helping her in a way that gave her good quality of life. That’s when he took it upon himself to create a pharmacy-quality hemp product that everybody could benefit from.
A Unique Extraction Process That Enhances Bioavailability
Bioavailability is the availability of a chemical, herb, supplement, or drug to be absorbed into the bloodstream after ingestion. In other words, how much potency is retained after it goes through your body’s digestive process.
Zion Medicinals uses the spagyric extraction process, which involves extraction through only organic alcohol and in a vacuum, so heat doesn’t destroy the plant’s medicinal elements.
You Can Try Zion Medicinals Full Spectrum Hemp Oil for $20
Not sure if this full spectrum hemp oil is right for you? Well, $100+ is a lot of money to spend on any product, especially when there’s no guarantee it will be of benefit to you.
That’s why Zion Medicinals offers $20 trial bottles. This way, you can give it a go without breaking your budget. If it works for you, wonderful! If it’s not your thing, you can just say you tried something new.
