Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
Pure Relief Pure Hemp Oil CBD Tinctures (500mg) smell strongly of hemp. For those familiar with the scent, it is similar in fragrance to marijuana. It’s a very earthy, green, and leafy smell. The mint flavor has an expected minty smell of peppermint. All varieties of this hemp oil have a pleasant bouquet.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
These hemp oils taste great and have a strong, leafy, and green flavor. The strength of the hemp flavor increases with the strength of the oil. As such, the lower dosage options have a somewhat lighter flavor. There’s also a slightly nutty flavor that’s more apparent in the lower strength oil. There isn’t much of a bitter note with Pure Relief Hemp Oils compared to other brands of hemp oil. The mint option is a tasty peppermint flavor and nicely complements the flavor of the hemp.
As Pure Hemp Oils contain only oil (and for the mint flavor, mint flavoring as well), the consistency is as expected, of oil. They have a lightweight mouthfeel and go down smoothly. They would mix well in beverages like coffee or smoothies and could be used in foods too, such as in an oil and vinegar salad dressing.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
Pure Hemp Oils are available in varying strengths and so the intensity of the effects is scaled accordingly. The effects of this oil are increased due to the fact that it’s a full spectrum product, which means that the full range of plant compounds are utilized by the body, working synergistically to provide a stronger effect than cannabidiol (CBD) alone would be capable of.
Depending on a person’s metabolism, the effects can typically be felt within 1-2 hours and last up to 6 hours. Sublingual usage (holding the oil underneath the tongue) can give a faster onset time. Effects include relief from pain, inflammation, stress, anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Hemp oil can also help with calming neurological conditions.
Best used for
Hemp oil has a lot of uses. The lower strength options that Pure Reliefoffers can be used as a remedy for everyday aches, mild anxiety, and daily stress. The mid-strength oils are helpful for stronger relief of pain and mood disorders. The higher strength oils are most useful for more severe pain, such as back and joint pain, and for helping to control symptoms in chronic and inflammatory illnesses and neurological diseases.
