Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
We tested the peppermint flavored version—the Hemp EVOO Sprays from PlusCBD Oil also come in unflavored and cafe mocha versions. Typical of a peppermint product, the minty scent comes through the cap even before opening. However, upon opening the bottle and taking a few deep inhales you’ll be able to detect more than just the peppermint. The aromas of earth and wood, common with one of the extract’s most abundant terpenes, Humulene, is detectable as well. There’s an overall refreshing, minty aroma.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
Two squirts on the tongue are similar to popping a mint, but not quite as overwhelming. If you let the extract rest on your tongue for 10-15 seconds you’ll briefly taste the earthy flavors. The PlusCBD Oil Hemp EVOO Spray is lightly sweetened with monk fruit which can be noticed as well. It’s a refreshing, well-balanced peppermint experience. No matter how picky you get when it comes to taste, if you’re OK with peppermint you’ll enjoy this extract.
This extract has a classic olive oil consistency. In addition, there’s a slight graininess to the oil that can be seen visually and felt briefly on the tongue. The extract is a light amber color. You’ll want to shake well before using to get the best consistency.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
The effects of the PlusCBD Oil Hemp EVOO Spray are fairly mild at the single serving dosage of 1 mg CBD (there’s also a 3 mg version, which we prefer). However, the benefit of the spray is the faster onset time via sublingual absorption. We’ve found this product to be especially effective for relieving mild headaches. Just 20-30 minutes after swallowing the oil you can begin to experience some pain relief and an overall calming sensation. Also, for mild stress and anxiety spells, a double dose can really do the trick. We found doubling or tripling the dose can provide relief for up to 5 hours or so.
Best used for
The PlusCBD Oil Hemp EVOO Spray is perfect as a daily wellness supplement alongside your daily multivitamin. For those experiencing mild body pains, this can provide significant relief for hours at a time. Nothing could be easier than a few squirts on the tongue, especially if you aren’t a fan of swallowing capsules. Joint pain, sore muscles, headaches… this product is worth checking into if you’re struggling with any of these issues. This extract provides an overall calming experience for the body which we found to also help with mild stress and anxiety issues.
