The oil itself doesn’t have a great taste. In fact, of all the CBD oils that we sampled, this was the most marijuana-like of flavours. There are some pros to this, of course, as a placebo, the medicinal taste really felt like something was working and it was doing the job. Keep a drink or a flavoured something on hand to help remove the taste straight after.
Focus is designed to help you push aside anxiety, pain and stress so you can concentrate on the task at hand. It does so with a combination of CBD, rosemary, ylang ylang and peppermint. Amplify combines the powerhouse ingredient with bergamot, bitter orange and sandalwood to give you a boost of energy, improve your mood and also remove anxieties. Last but certainly not least, Balance is for times of stress and when you are feeling overwhelmed. It combines chamomile, lavender and cajeput with CBD to give you a moment of calm and also help you sleep.
The oil has a natural taste with a faint orange aroma. The aftertaste is bitter but less so than some of the others on this list. After three drops under your tongue, three times a day, our tested immediately noticed better and longer sleeps as well as reduced pain from current and residual injury.
Blessed CBD Oil
Ok so this CBD oil is not going to be winning any taste competitions anytime soon. As the instructions suggest it is best not to swallow for as long as possible after you ingest. Squeeze the pipette under your tongue with 10 drops per day as the absolute maximum. Our tester suggests keeping a tasty treat on hand or at least some water to disguise the acrid taste. But as for the effects, that’s where this CBD oil hits its stride.
There are measurements on the pipette if you want to ensure that you are taking an accurate dose.
An effective dose can be anywhere between 5 and 75 mg per day. CBD oil is not addictive and you cannot “overdose” on it, however there can be mild side effects if too much is taken.
Taking around 8 drops before bed ensured I got a full night of good quality sleep. The Cannabidiol is CO2 extracted and lab tested, which ensures it is rich in natural cannabinoids, terpenes, flavonoids and phytonutrients.

If you want more control over your dose, try a product that displays the amount in grams. For example, Healthspan’s High Strength CBD Oil 60-capsule pack states that there’s 384mg of CBD in the whole packet, but also that there’s 6.4mg per capsule. Products with this labelling allow you to see exactly how much CBD you’re taking with each dose.
“The absorption of CBD depends on the format, too. CBD oil capsules which contain additional olive oil will aid the absorption of CBD into the body.”
Fine control of dose
The way that the cannabinoids are extracted also has a large bearing on the quality of the product. Unlike other companies that apply solvents such as hexane or butane, our natural CBD oil has been extracted by highly advanced machinery that utilises the supercritical CO2 method. This is widely accepted to be the gold standard method of CBD extraction as it protects the natural compounds and facilitates a high yield, whilst being non-toxic and antibacterial.
As you can appreciate, we work in a heavily regulated industry that has strict laws, something that Simply Supplements are proud to adhere to. Currently, there are no EU authorised health claims for CBD and as it is not currently licensed as a medicine, we cannot make medicinal claims on this product either.
