Cabbabinoid is a substance obtained from the cannabis hemp plant that has shown substantial promise in helping to treat a whole host of different illnesses and ailments. It’s proven to be safe, effective and a legal herbal remedy.

I personally suffer from Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain Syndrome, Facet Pain Syndrome and Failed Back Surgery so I think I was a good candidate for this review. However its not a product that I can compare with another as I have never tried a product like this before.I have been using this product for nearly four weeks, taking 4 drops under my tongue, twice a day. Their recommended dose is three times a day but I found it kept me awake at night if I took it in the evening. The taste isn’t too strong so it’s easy to take.

The first thing that I notice was my increase in energy, my head felt clearer. I also noticed how my appetite increased a bit and how well I slept as long as I did not take the evening dosage.As I am on a gambit of medication for my pain it was impossible for me to just cut them out altogether so I cannot really say if this helped with my pain but I can certainly say it made me feel calmer and yet more alert and my sleep pattern at night was improved.No scientific studies actually exist to date to show any negative cannabidiol side effects so it has to be worth a try, however, with any new product be it herbal or non-herbal you should always check with your doctor first before taking it.Honey Colony’s Superior CBD Oil is available from the Honey Colony’s website.
