“I have been given BioCBD+ Total Body Care as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “
Simply Google “CBD” and you will find a plethora of products, it seems as if a new product is added every day. It can be daunting to the consumer to try to wade through all of these to find what works. (unfortunately there’s a lot of junk out there). One way I can help is to give you my experience with BioCBD+ (please see their website here)
BioCBD+ is an American company, located in Encinitas, CA, that sells CBD (cannabidiol) supplements. CBD is a non-psychoactive part of the cannabis sativa plant. (you can read more about cannabidiol here.) “BioCBD™ is derived from organically grown hemp plants, and it contains all of the synergistic cannabinoids, terpenoids, and other compounds of the original plant”(BioCBD website). Since Sanjay Gupta’s documentary “WEED”, brought the awareness of CBD and how it can help people, especially a little girl named Charlotte, whow has epilepsy. You can watch the video here.
What makes BioCBD+ different from their competitors? “BioCBD™ is an all natural, water soluble source of CBD plus Ayurvedic herbs (magnesium and turmeric in Total Body Care) that is more bioavailable than any CBD hemp oil products on the market.” (BioCBD+ website) According to their website BioCBD+ never uses artificial coloring or flavoring and their products are free of soy, nuts, GMOs, binding solutions and/or solvents, and are the only all natural water soluble CBD made without the use of solvents or glycerides. BioCBD+’s “CBD is extracted from our special variety of industrial hemp that contains naturally high concentrations of CBD. The result is a raw oil that is high in CBD, virtually free of THC (less than 0.03%,) and complete with a full spectrum of other cannabinoids and terpenes, which work synergistically to make CBD even more effective. The hemp oil is then shipped to our labs to converted into the all natural, water soluble BioCBD™ through our patented process”. (BioCBD+ website)
BioCBD+ is a pioneer in producing water soluble CBD. This process posibly makes their product more of a value for the money. You can watch their video about water soluble CBD here.
I started my first bottle of BioCBD+ Total Body Care on July 31st. After reading about the many things CBD is reported to help, I was looking for some pain relief and possibly some help with anxiety.
This was a good time to try the BioCBD+ Total Body Care as I hurt my back and started physical therapy just a few days before. Therefore, I was able to judge the efficacy (for mr) not only on chronic pain, but also on acute pain.
The suggested use, as, stated on the bottle, is: “Start with one capsule daily and increase up to 6 capsules per day. When desired results are achieved gradually reduce daily amount”. I started with 1 capsule and took one a day for a week, I didn’t really notice much of a difference. I increased the amount to 2 capsules and I started noticing a reduction in pain. Just a little. I wasn’t sure if it was the placebo effect or not. In 6 days I got in touch with the company and asked how fast I should be increasing my dose, he said after a couple of days; The bottle I was given had 30 capsules, so I was able to take one does of 3 capsules and I finished up the bottle with the 2 that were left. This I noticed. This helped my muscle spasms. It took the edge off of all my pain, the acute back pain and the chronic arthritis pain in my neck *note it wasn’t a miracle, it just made the pain more tolerable.. I also noticed I didn’t have as much wide spread pain (from fibromyalgia). I admit, I didn’t really think it was doing very much, until I ran out. Within a few days after I ran out, I was in much more pain and I had a panic attack. I didn’t realize how much it was helping my anxiety. I purchased more of the Total Body Care, so I could give a more detailed review. (The second bottle, was not given to me, I bought it myself). There was a break of about 2 weeks before the next bottle appeared. (It took me a,title while to order it) I once again started with 1 capsule, but I’ve increased the dosage every 2 days, until I got to 4 capsules a day. I have noticed a reduction in pain, and my anxiety is better. However, I’m having increased vertigo. I had increased vertigo when taking the first bottle, then it calmed down the week I was out of it, and increased again when I started taking it again. As my normal readers will know, I have vertigo often due to Meniere’s Disease, but I had very little vertigo for the past 6 months, until I started BioCBD+ Total Body Care. Unless you have a condition that causes vertigo, I wouldn’t think this would be a problem.
1 Bottle of Total Body Care is $120, 2 Bottles is $220, and 3 bottles is $300. Each bottle contains 30 capsules. Signing up for auto-shipments can save you a lot of money There is also a sample size available for $45, it contains 15 capsules.
BioCBD+ also has a scholarship program. They are a “for benefit” company. For every bottle purchased they give a bottle away to someone in need. If you have a financial and medical need, or know someone who does, check out this program. +Scholarship – Buy 1, Change 2 Lives.
Another great thing they have is the “Feel the Difference” Money Back Guarantee. When you order a product you have 30 days to try it. If you don’t like it you can return it, you don’t even have to return the product of a 30 count bottle as long as the return is within 2 months of purchase. If you buy more than 30 capsules, you will need to return the unused product to prevent fraud.
