I wonder if much like myself just a month ago, you’d even heard of CBD aka Cannabidiol but hadn’t had the guts to try it yet. I hear you. Perhaps you feel a little perplexed or concerned right now about its origins, are unsure of its benefits, or simply don’t know where to start or which brand to trust when it comes to trying out CBD based products. That was me just 4 weeks ago, too.

I’d read, and even personally witnessed first-hand via friends and family how CBD had helped relieve pain in everything from serious illness to muscular aches, pains, and even anxiety and depression but I’d not felt confident enough to give CBD infused products a whirl. Until recently that is, and with reassuring and pleasing results.

More on that in a min.

Grass & Co

Firstly though, let me provide a little context and insight into what CBD actually is.

CBD is one of over 100 chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant but it DOES NOT have the same psycho-activity as THC tetrahydrocannabinol, the latter, a crystalline compound that is the main active ingredient of cannabis. The former compound, CBD, can be found in a huge array of wellbeing products and you might well have seen it advertised in health food shops this summer as it seemed to take the UK by storm becoming more mainstream than before.

Like anything in life, however, you want to seek out the highest quality products made from the finest, most ethical ingredients, and Grass & Co do just that.

Grass & Co was founded by brothers Ben and Tom Grass, who turned their trust in the power of nature into a holistic health brand combining organic hemp oil with complementary botanical ingredients with a focus on relieving pain, anxiety and insomnia. Their products are made in the UK and are ethically sourced with the smallest environmental impact possible.

They have also partnered with the best suppliers of organic CBD oil where it is organically farmed using state of the art extraction and they work with highly experienced food scientists and formulation specialists ensuring they meet all of the appropriate regulations.

All batches of Grass & Co’s CBD products are tested to ensure they meet label requirements and most importantly are free of THC, heavy metals and other toxins. They’re also vegan friendly.

And, I spent the summer trying them out for you guys!

I want to add that prior to me testing these products out, I’d started to slowly reintroduce nuts into my diet. I was never allergic but found I was intolerant to some nuts, particularly Brazil nuts.

I quickly discovered that I’m fine with almonds but still can’t stomach their Brazilian sisters. However, testing the almond based products below didn’t prove a problem for me. Now all that’s out of the way, here’s my review.

I’ve come to use the Grass & Co EASE CBD Body Oil daily. A luxurious, fast-absorbing oil composed of Grape, Seed, Almond and Seed oil with CBD (250mg) as well as Peppermint, Eucalyptus and healing Arnica and Tea Tree amongst other ingredients, this smelt clean and refreshing and soothed my skin instantly. It’s been a huge help in the hotter months when my skin became tanned, and will help as the weather turns and my skin becomes dry. It helped with dry patches on my elbows too to the point those sensitive areas are almost completely gone.

As I adore face oils, I even used it on my face when I went away for the weekend away and found I’d forgotten my usual moisturiser. It’s a versatile oil that works hard all over your body leaving skin soft and supple. Most importantly, it’s suitable for sensitive skin like mine, causing zero irritation. £29.50.

For aching muscles post gym or during PMT-something I’ve written a lot about before (I ache in my arms and legs then, too), Grass & Co’s EASE CBD Muscle Balm helps to sooth my pain away. With 300g CBD, this all-natural pot has a similar fresh scent to the Body Oil but is more intensive a treatment, getting to work immediately on application. Perfect for gym bunnies, or those who feel the cold quickly (me), I usually apply it after a warm bath, massaging it into my legs, arms and tummy. It not only helps ease my pain but also sends me straight to sleep, making it the perfect addition to my usual bedtime ritual. £39.50.

Grass & Co Muscle Balm

The Grass & Co EASE CBD oil blend combines three of my all-time favourite ingredients of tumeric, ginger and orange, along with CBD and comes in either a 500 mg of CBD or 1000 mg. As someone starting out with CBD for the first time, I opted for the 500 mg product. A citrusy blend of CBD and my aforementioned faves, it was surprisingly tasty and is now part of my morning routine before I down a smoothie before the school-run! I do change out of my PJ and nightie, promise!

Grass & Co

I’ve definitely found myself more relaxed too and less of a Shouty Mum too (eek), and it’s no coincidence that my clarity and focus has sharpened since taking this oral CBD blend. The benefits were instant and they’ve lasted with use. This is the perfect starting point if you’re new to CBD, perhaps transitioning to 1000 mg down the line or during extra stressful times and to help with sleep when the clocks change.

I’m impressed!

What super products with proven benefits. Word of warning, though, these are not for children so keep out of their reach.

Wow, I’m feeling all zen now!

Let me know if you try them, won’t you?
