Treaty CBD Oils I TA
Treaty: Calm, Focus, Balance
CBD type: Broad spectrum
CBD potency: Calm (1,200mg/bottle, 20mg/dose), Focus (600mg/bottle, 10mg/dose), Balance (900mg/bottle, 15mg/dose)
Price: Calm ($1,350) Focus ($1,350) Balance ($850)
What it is: Hemp oil enhanced with plant extracts
What it does: Help users be calm, find focus, and regulate imbalances throughout the body
Who it’s for: Calm is for people who are anxious or stressed; Focus is for busy people always working in frenetic phase and needs mental clarity and mindfulness; and Balance is best for beginners who want to incorporate CBD in their life
Why we love it: It does what it promises. Calm gives you a sense of tranquillity after a few seconds it melts under your tongue, but we recommend to use it best during bedtime as it helps you relax especially when you find it hard to switch off. Balance helps ease feelings of anxiety, though being that it doesn’t have any add-on ingredients, the CBD’s vegetal and earthy flavour is very prominent. And, so far out of the three products, Focus is our favourite. It’s a good booster for a frantic day, especially for days when you need mental clarity for an overactive brain. And it doesn’t taste bad compared to other CBD oils – it’s nutty and minty, and a bit zesty. The full product range can also be used altogether as long as you take it in intervals of six to eight hours between formulas.
Life Pure CBD I TA
Life Pure CBD
CBD type: Isolate
CBD potency: 600 mg/bottle, 20mg/dose
What it is: Easy-mix water-soluble CBD
What it does: A perfect ingredient to add to food, juices, coffee, kombucha, and alcoholic drinks
Who it’s for: For people who hate the taste of CBD oils and want to incorporate CBD in their daily food and drink
Why we love it: It mixes well with anything you want to eat or drink! So far we have tried it on water, for when you’re going on walks or run; it’s anti-inflammatory so small dosing while you’re exhausting your body helps your muscles heal and recover faster. It’s also great with kombucha – for days when you need a digestive boost. And our favourite: it mixes well with cocktails as it relieves the feeling of intoxication. But it may depend on the person, so it may not have the same result for others. CBD may reduce some side effects from alcohol, while for some, it may amplify the effects, so it is best to approach with caution.
Available in Found CBD shop and cafe.
Saint Jane C-Drops I TA
Saint Jane C-Drops
CBD type: Broad spectrum (whole plant but with zero percent THC)
CBD potency: 500mg of full spectrum in 30ml bottle
What it is: A brightening elixir packed with vitamin C, CBD, and citrus alpha hydroxy acid (AHA)
What it does: Helps brighten skin
Who it’s for: For people who want to boost their skin’s radiance. Perfect for combination skin with minimal discolouration
Why we love it: It’s very lightweight and smells good on the skin. Perfect to use as part of your morning beauty regimen as its citrus notes perks you up a little. And since it gets easily absorbed, it’s great to use under your moisturiser and sunscreen. After using it for a couple of weeks, you’ll notice that your skin looks glowing.
