Blonde Meets CBD One! Product Review!

Back in May I went to Bodypower expo, I think it was my 4th year now in a row… if you went also, I know some of you would have been a little bummed out about the turn out this year… it was missing a lot of the big brands – Grenade, Bodybuilding.com, Quest. Gym shark haven’t attended the last 2 years, and probably won’t ever again after opening a competing pop up shop, in the same city, on the same weekend in 2018 … yah.. Anyways! That’s business and the fitness industry always has been highly competitive. 

The beauty of this situation is without some of the larger brands taking all the glory, we got more exposure to and the opportunity to support some of the smaller and up and coming brands.

As you all know, I Blondie, am a sufferer of Anxiety and low mood. This can literally cripple me and my productivity. Then on the flip side when I’m on my A Game – I buzz around at 100mph without sitting down… which often leads to burn out which then leads to increased anxiety and low mood – you know where I’m going with this?

Basically…. I needed a “Blonde chill the eff out” remedy and I’ve needed this for some time now…

So, imagine my intrigue when all of these CBD products started showing up in the fitness market.

The issue you have with products like CBD oil etc. making a massive boom in the market, is there are hundreds of “Fake brands” selling shoddy product. This scared me massively when being approached by CBD brands on social media.

So when I saw the CBD One stand at Bodypower I took the opportunity to stop and meet the guys to find out more about their product. CBD One is owned by Nick & Alex Tofalos who have over 15 years’ experience in the natural health market. Alex explained in enthusiastic details how he and Nick worked so hard to build their professional and trustworthy brand in a product field they really believed in, his knowledge on CBD filled me confidence and led me to wanting to try the product and so he kindly hooked me up with a bottle of their absorb range, which I have to say…. does as I hoped, and chills, a blondie out! I tend to only use it in the evenings when I need to relax after a hard day, one pump into a bottle of water and it really does calm me and helps me to get settled for the night.

Here’s a bit more from them about the product (they do a range of different things but I only ever discuss a product I have personally tried and tested)

“Traditional CBD products – while being extremely popular – are by design oil based and therefore broken down by our liver, leaving some of the product wasted?

People have reported amazing results from using CBD Oils despite this. Imagine if there was a way to increase this effectiveness?

The Absorb range has been designed to deliver a CBD product which can maximise the potential of the Cannabinoids and Terpenes we spend so much time and effort extracting.

CBD one’s two Absorb blends offer a unique product which offers up to 100% absorption in the body. This is, in effect, up to 10 times more effective than an equivalent Oil based product.

Ultra+ has a CBD content of approximately 400mg with 50 servings – offering circa 8mg of CBD per dose.
• Water based formula for increased absorption
