CBD oil has become more widely available in recent years. With claims that the benefits can help people who suffer from anxiety, depression and chronic pain. I have been kindly gifted a bottle of CBD Oil from Reakiro, which I have been using for a few weeks now. Keep reading to see what I thought of the product.

CBD The basics
CBD comes from the cannabis and hemp plant. Generally, it has very low levels of THC which is the part of marijuana that gives users a high. In the UK to buy CBD oil legally, it must have a THC content of 0.2%. The product must be made using industrial grade hemp strain that has been approved by the EU.
It can be bought in many different forms, from oils and capsules to edibles and creams. The capsules are more preferable to those who don’t like the distinctive taste of the oil, there is a downside of the capsules though as it takes longer to get into the users’ system.
Who Is Reakiro
Reakiro is a leading manufacturer of CBD products in the EU. They sell Oil Sprays in different flavours, Oils, Skincare, E-Liquids and have recently launched a Hand Sanitiser.
Reakiro is one of the few European manufacturers who can consistently trace the entire product lifecycle from seed to sale. Every decision we make regarding our production is made with the sharpest attention to deal.
From the moment I received the package, I was impressed!! The Oil came in a sturdy cardboard box with shredded cardboard surrounding a cylindrical container with padding inside snug against the bottle to prevent any damaged in transit.
The bottle itself is what I would expect from a CBD oil, a little brown bottle with a pipette for dispensing the oil. Surprisingly the bottle has a child lock which is both great and a little frustrating. It’s great that my son won’t be able to open it and get CBD oil everywhere but as someone who occasionally has issues with my hands, it can be a little more difficult to open.
Taking the oil took a little time to get used too, although I have tried other oils in the past, the smell and taste of it are pretty strong. The directions with Reakiro is to take 5 drops under the tongue twice a day. Leaving it there for around a minute then swallow. This is the part that I struggled with the most. After a few days of using the oil, I’m able to use it daily without having a strong physical reaction to it.
Did It Help My Fibromyalgia Symptoms?
As far as my fibromyalgia symptoms go I can’t say I noticed any significant changes in my pain levels. At the moment I am experiencing a lot of pain due to stress and uncertainty with what is going on in the world. I do however notice that I am feeling calmer and less anxious whilst taking the oil. Maybe after a prolonged time of use, there might be some relief to my pain and other symptoms. If all it does for me is take the edge off my anxiety then its a win for me.
Remember if you are considering using CBD Oil it may have a different impact on your symptoms every fibromyalgia patient is different and we all react differently to treatment.
