Last week I spoke about the U Love U Relief, the first of three products I’m testing by this fascinating brand, while now I’m taking a closer look at the Relax CBD isolate.
Why A Spray Nozzle?
ULU have opted for a spray nozzle rather than the more conventional dropper with their CBD isolates.
There are a number of reasons why many people prefer sprays to droppers. For instance, you know you’re getting a clean cut 5.5mg of CBD per spray, meaning there is no guesswork on how many drops you felt land below your tongue.
Of course, this means you’re limited to doses based on 5.5mg CBD denominators, but I’m sure that won’t make a difference to most people.
Another factor is hygiene, the dropper shouldn’t ever touch your tongue for hygiene purposes, yet it can occasionally accidentally happen, whereas this simply wouldn’t happen with a spray nozzle.
But the reality is both work fine, it’s largely down to preference, the most important factor is what’s inside that tincture.
What Carrier Oil Do They Use?
The ULU Relax contains MCT oil, derived from coconuts, helping to carry the CBD directly to the bloodstream and preventing wastage.
I’ve often spoke about my admiration for MCT, partly as the best carrier oil for CBD, but also for its general health benefits.
MCT is fast becoming the industry standard carrier oil, helping to rapidly metabolise the CBD and bypass the digestive process, protecting the CBD from the breakdown enzymes.
How Much CBD Do You Get?
As with the ULU Relief, the Relax CBD Isolate contains 500mg of cannabidiol.
With 5.5mg of CBD per spray, you will get fractionally over 90 sprays in a tincture. Therefore, if you were to use three sprays per day, this would last one month.
I’m a little more lavish with my usage, trying ten sprays before bed (my body is probably 80% CBD nowadays), being 55mg of CBD, which helped me sleep like a baby. Remember not to have more than 70mg of CBD in a day, the recommendations provided by the FSA.
What Are The Most Prevalent Terpenes In This CBD Oil?
The highlighted terpenes present are Limonene, Myrcene and Bisabolol.
I’m sure many people reading this may already be aware of limonene and myrcene, both very well known terpenes, limonene present in citrus fruits and myrcene being the most abundant terpene in cannabis.
But bisabolol is a less commonly discussed terpene, which creates a nice, sweet and floral flavour and aroma. Due to this flowery scent, bisabolol is commonly used in cosmetic products when they want a light summery scent.
But terpenes aren’t just about the scent they let off, it’s also important to learn about the benefits they bring.
Bisabolol has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties, helping to heal wounds and reduce pain. It’s also been shown to have relaxing effects, hence why it’s ideal for a product labelled ‘relax’.
You’ll most commonly find bisabolol in chamomile, which has long been known as a tea taken in the evenings to help you relax, while a significant factor to this is the presence of the terpene bisabolol.
Where Can I Order This From?
The ULU Relax CBD Isolate is available from their website for £29.99. The delivery should take 2-3 days to arrive, handled by Royal Mail.
Remember, if you buy a couple of products, you can bring your order over the £40 minimum for free delivery, so you might want to have a look through their full range. Keep an eye out for my review coming out soon, of the Sleep CBD Isolate.
