My first experience with the NuLeaf CBD oil Drops was after lifting weights at the gym. I took the drops before eating in hopes that the effects would be amplified by taking them on an empty stomach. As I am relatively new to using CBD as a supplement, I only took half of the recommended dose to feel it out. This equated to about a quarter of a dropper. I made dinner about 30 minutes later and noticed that my body felt a bit less sore than it normally would. After dinner, I sat down to unwind from the day and there was a notable difference in how relaxed my body felt. It had been a particularly stressful week at work, however, I noticed no anxiety or stress about the fact that I was expected to go into work and repeat the same workload the next day. After watching TV and spending time with my roommates, it was time for bed. By the time I had gotten ready for bed, it was about 10 pm. I woke up to messages from less than 5 minutes after I had gone to my room. The product worked great for easing the mind before a night of sleep. I also managed to not wake up once in the middle of the night. The product worked great as a sleep aid and didn’t leave any feeling of being groggy like I’ve become accustomed to with other products.
The second use for the NuLeaf CBD Drops that was highly beneficial was for the morning after a night out on the town. Traditionally, going out at night can leave me with intense anxiety the next day. Recognizing that this would be the case after a birthday party I attended, I decided to sample half a dropper of NuLeaf CBD Drops to see if it would have a positive effect on my mindset the next day. As it turns out, the product allowed me to resume with daily activity and none of the usual stressors that are associated with a hangover. I took the first dose early in the morning when I first woke up. The second dose was taken around mid-afternoon to carry through the day. The great thing about the NuLeaf CBD Drops is that they have the relaxing effect but don’t seem to be demotivating by any stretch of the imagination. At this point in time, it’s been somewhat of a “wonder drug” type supplement that allows for me to minimize anxiety, relax, and get a nice full night of sleep without any side effects. I’m excited to have found a product that offers so much benefit without having to take a number of different supplements on the side.
The third review I have for NuLeaf CBD Drops is based entirely on ability to sleep. Taking a half a dropper before bed has not only helped with my ability to fall asleep but also to stay asleep. With products like Melatonin, Nyquil, or Benadryl, there has been a tendency to wake up dazed and confused. I also struggle with waking up in the middle of the night while on those products. CBD has had the opposite effect on me. While not as potent for the “knock out” effect, it does a great job of easing the mind and body to kind of lull you to sleep and keep you in that state. The product doesn’t seem to have a diminishing effect in terms of its ability to take it over time. No notable tolerance has been built to disrupt the effects of the NuLeaf CBD product. It has been used daily since I received the product and I’ve noticed an overall boost in mood, likely related to the amount and quality of sleep that I have been able to get while using this product.
I continued taking the NuLeaf CBD oil drops for the first half of the week. After drinking a little too much coffee at work, I was feeling a bit racy and stressed out. The most logical step was to reach into my bag and put some of the NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil drops underneath my tongue. This quick, and easy, gesture helped mitigate the negative effects of too much caffeine from the coffee. While not a cure- all for calming the body when over stimulated, it did help ease the mind when going back and attacking the work day. I was surprised to know that the combination of CBD oil and coffee allowed for a nice mental focus when going after the workload for the day. Would highly recommend the combination of NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil and coffee for anybody looking to accomplish a number of tasks without getting overly stressed.
My primary use case for the NuLeaf CBD oil Drops has been to help relax the body and mind at the end of the day. After taking the CBD oil for sleep a number of days in a row, I did feel like a higher dose was needed to get the same “put me out” effect. I am not sure if this was a result of developing a tolerance to the product or was a false sample related to a number of other factors that could have contributed to a change in sleep cycle (caffeine, exercise, diet, etc.). The recommended dose for NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil is 1/2 of a full dropper. However, I opted to take the whole dropper to see if that would help with sleep. I was able to get a full night sleep and wake up the next morning feeling rested. In addition, I didn’t notice any type of grogginess associated with the additional drops of CBD oil consumed the night before.
The NuLeaf CBD oil drops as a product have been extremely helpful with a number of different symptoms I experience related to stress, anxiety, and sleep deprivation. The CBD oil also appear to be a great fit for recovery from strenuous exercise. My recovery time after the gym seems to have cut down. I notice a lot less inflammation and issues related to being sore. The CBD oil drops themselves have a sort of earthy- oil taste and are easily consumed as part of an overall well- being routine. A number of drops under the tongue have proven to be useful as both a daily supplement before work and a sleep aid before bed. However, the effects don’t seem to necessarily cross over too much. I’m not sure if it is a subtle effect the CBD oil has on the body or if placebo plays a large role in the way they function. Either way, I enjoy the product and have utilized it as somewhat of a tool for day to day wellness.
The NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil drops have continued to be a valuable asset for me particularly for nighttime use. I have continued to use a half dropper in the morning, before work, to ease myself into the day. This was then supplemented with a full dropper of CBD oil before bed every single night. The combination of these two daily doses was highly effective at keeping the overall mind at ease throughout all parts of the day. I found that with the CBD oil drops, I didn’t need to have a ton of background noise going to be able to fall asleep, something I usually have on, as the CBD oil seemed to do a good job of blocking out any funky or negative thoughts that can cause overall anxiety or restlessness before sleep. NuLeaf Naturals did a great job of helping me to fall asleep, but I did still have the occasional wake up in the middle of the night which can be disruptive to the overall quality of a nights sleep.
One thing worth noting related to the Nuleaf Naturals CBD oil drops continual daily usage, I used the CBD oil both in the morning and at night, was what appeared to be a tolerance. Like any other sleep aid, melatonin etc, it seemed that the more that I used the product, the more subtle the effects were. At the beginning of the month when I was first using the Nuleaf Naturals CBD oil drops, it would offer a more distinct feeling of whole body relaxation. A feeling where you felt very content with just relaxing on the couch and watching TV, a feeling that could be compared to the onset of melatonin. This relaxed feeling from the CBD oil was gone towards the end of the month and is something that long-term users may want to keep in mind as they use the CBD supplement to aid with their insomnia or any other problems one may use CBD to help with.
NuLeaf Naturals CBD oil, in comparison to other CBD products that I have used in the past, have been the most well rounded product overall. I was able to read up on the “full spectrum” characteristic of the product, as opposed to the product being a CBD isolate, and realized that this was a large part of the reason for the overall effects. Full spectrum CBD from NuLeaf Naturals offered a lot more reasons to use the product for general mental well being, recovery from an extensive workout, and a good night’s sleep. As far as the product goes, I would highly recommend for anybody that needs help with any of the listed symptoms and is looking to cut back on the number of additional supplements that they need. As a product that addresses a number of issues, I enjoyed testing and would likely use the product again.
