It’s working! And this is not CBD oil – it says this in the item description
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on July 14, 2018
I started taking these three weeks ago. I started with one capsule a day and then a week ago went up to the recommended two capsules per day.
I was hoping they would help with joint pain in my shoulders and hips. I also have some arthritis in my back as well as muscle issues. My shoulders are still quite sore, but my hips are better, and I noticed my back is feeling really fantastic! Full disclosure: I am also taking a prescription medication for my back, which has helped a lot, but not enough. These hemp oil capsules seem to have made the difference! If the effect is cumulative, over time I hope I can cut back on the prescription medication. Yesterday by the end of work, I was noting how good I felt… Usually I can hardly move by the end of the day!
I read reviews that this helps with brain fog… I can’t say that it’s helped in that regard. That was a secondary reason for trying these capsules and maybe over time I will see in improvement – I will update.
It’s also helpful for getting the Omegas. Again, that’s not really why I bought these, but I know they would be helpful – in the past I’ve tried flaxseed oil… I haven’t used Salmon oil recently because I’m a vegetarian. I had tried salmon oil before I was vegetarian, but both salmon and flaxseed oil “come back on me“ and I couldn’t stand burping those up (I hate fish). There is no aftertaste with the hemp oil.
I have not found that these make me sleepy. At first I was taking the one at dinnertime, and when I started taking two, I added the second onei n the morning. I have not found that they made me drowsy, but I have also noticed they *do not* give me the energy that other reviews have reported, either.
Having said that, being in pain is very exhausting. As the pain is alleviated, hopefully that will bring more energy as a result. As I mentioned above, I noticed I felt really good after work yesterday where is usually I’m zonked.
If I've been very physically active, I noticed I start to get achey about six hours after having taken a capsule.
A pleasant and unexpected benefit was that since taking these, I have not had leg-muscle cramps at night, which could be excruciating.
