Let's talk about CBD oil. Right now, CBD oil is poppin' up in just about everything - food, drinks, skincare, just to name a few. But what the heck even is CBD oil? Will it get me high? Does it taste good? What's so good about it? I've joined together with and Medterra to answer alllll of that, plus my own experience with it!

When something becomes popular, it's tough to weed out what's actually good for you and what's just cheap crap that a company rolled out to keep with the trends.

Let's talk the basics of CBD as well as why I chose Medterra!


CBD is short for cannabinoid. It is derived from the hemp plant and is known for its potent healing powers. It is not to be confused with hemp seed oil, as CBD is extracted from the flowers, leaves and hemp stalks while hemp seed oil is well, from the seed. Hemp CBD contains little to no THC (less than .02% - just for comparison, marijuana has 10-40%). Cannabinoids are "feel good" molecules and naturally made in our body when we're feeling relaxed and secure or are feeling happy. They're also released when we sleep well and exercise.


How can one oil help aid so many different ailments? Are you ready for this? More and more studies are showing that many ailments may be related to the endocannabinoid system or ECS. WHAT THE WHAT? It gets even cooler. This system in our body was found by researching the effects of cannabis in the body and regulates the body's internal balance (homeostasis). This entire system is made up of endocannabinoids and their receptors that are found literally EVERYWHERE in the body. Cannabinoids stick to those endocannabinoid receptors that help stimulate those feel-good responses.



I'm going to be honest with you guys. I've never tried CBD oil because I was always nervous about what would happen - and I'm not even sure what that would've been anyway.

I did a lot of research and found Medterra was started by a group of individuals passionate about the power of CBD. Medterra was highly recommended and had almost all positive reviews. I read one bad one that said she just didn't like it and was switching back to her old one. Guess you can't please everyone!

Medterra works directly with Kentucky farmers to grow dedicated hemp. With CO2 extractors, they eliminate risk for any residual contaminants and solvents. They work with GMP factories only, exceeding requirements for all their manufactured products. Each batch is tested to ensure purity and 0% THC.

Every morning and evening, I take half a dropper under the tongue (or mixed in a drink). Directions say to take a full dropper but I find that half a dropper is fine. It's all your personal preference. It has absolutely no taste which I'm thrilled with, especially after reading many CBD oils have an "herbal" taste. I don't feel weird or jittery or sleepy or anything like that. Just normal but with clarity and a less anxious and stressed. I'm truly surprised. I was in the middle of, "There's no way this is going to work." and "OMG. I'm going to feel so weird before I even took it.

Medterra offers three different strengths: 500mg, 1000mg and 3000mg.
