The first two CBD products from CTFO that I ordered were the small pain relief and sleep sprays, because I suffer from back and ankle pain, due to Osteoarthritis in my lower back and recovering from a recently broken ankle, and I have trouble sleeping. The first one I tried was the pain relief spray.

The spray tastes sweet and pleasant, although I wouldn't describe it as Mocha.

Like the first CDB oil I tried, I used it as and when required instead of sticking to the recommended daily dose. I found it did relieve my pain, but wore off after a few hours, so once a day wasn…

Review This was the first CBD oil I tried and I found it helped with my ankle and back pain. I had previously tried CBD Gummies, but this was my first experience with oil.

It tasted similar to olive oil and although you're supposed to take it orally, I found rubbing it on also helped.
The only down side is 15ml doesn't last very long. I took 3 or 4 drops when I was in pain and it lasted about 2 weeks. I did rub it on as well sometimes and made a facial oil out of it (see below), so it would have lasted longer if I had stuck to the recommended 3 drops, 3 times a day only.

While I was using this oil, I did not need to take my usua…

Is all CBD oil the Same?

Since I started researching and selling CBD, I have been asked a lot of questions, which I intend to answer in a series of blog posts, under the FAQ tag.
Is all CBD oil the same? No, not all Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is the same. Different manufacturers use different extraction processes and have different breeds of hemp plants. That affects the potency of the CBD oil, but even the same manufacturer will produce different types.
CTFO, for example, produce 10xPure Full Spectrum CBD oil, Full Spectrum CBD oil and CBD Isolate oil and each of those come in varying strengths.

Check the independent lab reports before you buy, to be sure there is enough CBD to have an effect. What is the difference between Full Spectrum CBD oil and CBD Isolate? Full spectrum oils contain other cannabinoids. This can be beneficial because other cannabinoids have reported health benefits too, but they can contain Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

Most full spectrum oils have the THC removed, but trace amounts could rem…

What is CBD Oil?

Since I started researching and selling CBD, I have been asked a lot of questions, which I intend to answer in a series of blog posts, under the FAQ tag.

The most common question is "What exactly is CBD oil?"

CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants.

It is reported to have the same relaxation, pain killing and other benefits of cannabis, without the feeling of being 'stoned' or 'high' because that feeling is caused by Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), another cannabinoid.

CBD oil is created by extracting the CBD from the plant and mixing it with other oils. The amount of CBD in the oils vary and they should tell you the strength, as either a percentage, or in mg on the packet. CBD Explained from CTFO Communications on Vimeo.

Why I Chose CTFO

By coincidence, which you can read about in my about me post, I was researching CBD oil and ways to make money online/passive income streams at the same time. I found that CBD is a $1billion industry and growing and the affiliate marketing or multi level marketing (MLM) seem to be the best methods of making money online for me.
There are plenty of ways to make money online, but for me MLM and Affiliate marketing seemed the best because although they take a lot of time and effort at the beginning, once you’ve built them up, they can become a passive income stream and also there’s little or no money needed to get started
What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate marketing is when you earn commission on another company’s sales, by sending people to their website through your link. For example, if you buy CBD oil products through this link, you will be buying from CTFO, not me, and it will cost you exactly the same as if you went directly, but I would earn a percentage of your spend.

My First Experience with CBD

I tried CBD for the first time about a week ago. The product I tried was CBD FX Vegan Gummy Bears. I chose these because I wanted to see if CBD works for me, but I didn’t want to buy and expensive oil and then find it doesn’t. These Jellies were £7.99 for a pack of 8. I bought a pack of the standard ones and a pack of the ones with added Turmeric & Spirulina. I chose these particular gummies because they are vegan. I’m vegetarian and lactose intolerant, so I eat a mostly vegan diet. There are a lot of CBD edibles around, but vegetarian and Vegan CBD edibles are trickier to find. I was working from home when they arrive and my neck and ankle were hurting. I’m recovering from a broken ankle so that hurts regularly. The neck pain was probably down to sitting at a computer for too long. I wanted to try them straight away, but I was working and I thought I shouldn’t take cannabis while working. Then I reminded myself that CBD is derived from cannabis, but it isn’t actually cannabis an…

CBD and Me
About 10 years ago, while I was on prescription opiates for a back injury, I went to Amsterdam for the weekend with friends. While I was there, I ran out of painkillers and went into a pharmacy to buy co-codomol. I assumed I could buy the lowest strength one there because you can in the UK. I knew it wouldn’t work as well as my prescription painkillers, but I thought it would be better than nothing.
I was told I could not buy any strength co-codomol because codeine is (well was then, I don’t know if it still is) a controlled substance in Holland. The only painkillers I could by were paracetamol and ibuprofen. I knew from past experience that they wouldn’t help and I was in a lot of pain, so I went to a coffee shop and smoked a joint. It sorted my pain right out. Of course, it also got me stoned and …
