CBD has been the buzz word on the lips of just about every wellness warrior in the past few years, claiming to help everything from sleep to minor pain relief, anxiety to bad skin.

If you’re looking to try it for yourself, there’s a new product that’s been created with the new users just starting their CBD journeys in mind.

We’ve joined forces with premium CBD brand (and our fave), CBII to dispel the common myths around the wonder product and find the perfect fit for you.

Enter The Discovery Duo, which includes two 2ml bottles (that’s a week’s supply) of CBII with two strengths, 2% and 5%. The key to making CBD work for you is finding the magic strength that works alongside your body and needs, and this entry package is the easiest and most cost-effective way to do so.

Intrigued? Read on for some common misconceptions made about CBD and start reaping a bounty of benefits.

Will it get you high?

It won’t. CBII extract the CBD (or cannabinoids) from the species of hemp called Cannabis Sativa L.– a plant which has very little trace of THC compared to the marijuana plant.

The brand is dedicated to ensuring each batch is consistent, producing a product with the same amount of these natural components every time.

Is it a placebo?

Many think that if you don’t feel the effects of something straight away, it’s not working. Simply not true. CBD oil is not a quick-win formula, it’s more of a lifestyle choice – think of it in the same way that you would taking a vitamin C supplement – it’s best when taken daily to work with your body.

If your cause for concern is say, bad sleep, one dose of CBD isn’t going to send you off into a deep slumber that night, but over time it will work with your body to aid it into a better night’s sleep and overall help you feel a greater sense of calm.

Can you take too much?

You can’t overdose on CBD oil, in fact, your body will naturally get rid of any it’s not using. The only thing you can get wrong is wasting your money by taking too much – a few drops under the tongue every day is enough to do its job.

Are all CBD products the same?

Not all products on the market are what they say they are as the regulation evolves, but CBII follow meticulous standards to ensure a high-quality product you can trust. CBII follow Good Agricultural and Collection Practice (GACP), are GMO free and source their hemp legally from the EU. Their CBD oils are also 100% vegan-friendly.

Their exclusive partnership with Linnea SA in Switzerland uses a gentle, clean and sustainable extraction method with over 90% recycled ethanol. The extraction is full-spectrum, meaning it’s closer to the natural plant.

They also independently test their product to ensure consistent quality in every batch. We’ve tried a lot of CBD products over the past few years and trust us, this is a firm favourite.

Will you feel the effects straight away?

CBD oil works best when taken every day and it’s able to build up in the body. It’s not a miracle, mind-altering product that’s going to cure anxiety or headaches in one dose or give you a sudden ‘hit’ of the good stuff. It’s more of a slow burner.

Think of it as an addition to your healthy lifestyle and take it like you would a supplement for a 360 approach to wellbeing. Benefits include support for the brain and nervous system, helping everything from sleep to focus and relaxation.

CBII’s new Discovery Duo 7-day CBD starter kit is the easiest way to try it out for yourself for only £19.
