CBD oil gained a LOT of momentum recently and for a good reason. Research shows that it has a wide array of health benefits – from pain relief to fighting inflammation and mood improvement. With such big promises, it definitely sparked my interest and made me dig deeper into the topic. It didn’t take long until we ordered our first bottle. Of course, as with most supplements on the market, you better do your research first and make sure you get the highest quality product you can with the least amount of filler ingredients. That’s exactly what we did and after reading up on tons of reviews and information online, we landed on the Nordic Oil website and their amazing product line.
In general, on the market, you can find CBD oils with different concentrations ranging from 2.5% up to 20%. What we ended up purchasing after consulting with their live-support service on the Nordic Oil website, was 15%. It was of great help to have someone to answer your questions and advise you on the most suitable product for your goals. Highly recommend!
CBD oil and sleep
I’ve never been great with sleep so, naturally, the promise of improved sleep quality was the biggest selling point for me. It would usually take me forever to fall asleep (sometimes hours) and once I did, it would be a very light sleep and I would wake up from the smallest disturbance. After all, I read about CBD oil my hopes were running high and fortunately I was not disappointed. I believe it took me just a few nights to notice that not only was I falling asleep much faster and easier, but I also slept deeper. I would sleep for the same amount of hours but wake up fresher and more rested than before. Getting good quality sleep on a regular basis leads to better concentration, more energy throughout the day, stable hormone balance, less junk food cravings, and faster (athletic) recovery. I experienced all that first-hand and it’s no exaggeration to say that it’s truly life-changing. In fact, Rafael and I were so happy with it, we actually supplied both of our families with a bottle of CBD oil. They all reported the same – deeper and more restful sleep.
CBD oil and recovery
In all honesty, I can’t really testify for how big of a change CBD oil made on its own regarding athletic recovery. It’s hard to judge the contribution factor given that recovery has rapidly climbed up the importance ladder for me and I’ve made quite a few changes in my routines. But related to my previous point – just the fact that I sleep so much better now thanks to it, made one of the biggest differences in my energy levels and overall well-being. As for Rafael, he is firmly of the opinion that since taking CBD oil he is recovering faster.
CBD oil and anxiety/stress
Having a peaceful mind is priceless, especially in today’s world. It seems like almost everyone I talk to now experiences anxiety (since anxiety comes in many shapes and forms) at one point or another. I include myself here. Nothing worse than a constant stream of worry-filled thoughts that either don’t let you fall asleep or just frustrate you to the point that you can’t do anything productive anymore. Now, managing and dealing with stress and anxiety is a VERY extensive topic and there are SO many ways to tackle it, I wrote more about it HERE.
But to be specific and stay on topic – CBD oil definitely helped me get rid of irrational thinking patterns and reduce all the negative effects of stress.

I think by now it’s clear that I would wholeheartedly recommend Nordic Oil’s CBD oil. We’ve been using it for a little over 6 months now and loved it so much that we even got our parents and siblings using it.
