Reviewing Golden Oil Tinctures From The Herb Kingdom
By: Janice Rosser
The Herb Kingdom is based in Herefordshire where I live and sells finest quality CBD products.
These products are becoming ever more popular and being used to help treat various ailments. They are sold as food supplements in the UK and companies cannot give medical advice.
I was interested to read about how and why this local company was set up. Let me begin by quoting this extract from the website.
'The home of full spectrum 'golden' CBD oil at superb value for money. Better tasting. More effective.'

'We are father and son - Laurence & Alex Hughston. A few years ago Alex contracted Crohn's Disease and had to have an operation to remove part of his bowel. The operation failed and resulted in poison leaking into his stomach which nearly killed him. A second emergency operation a few days later saved his life.
However, the Crohn's remains and the desire to keep it at bay is strong. After much research he discovered that using CBD oil (as a food supplement and in addition to changes to his diet recommended by his doctors) could help relieve his symptoms. Obviously, we cannot make any medical claims here but we know what we know.
But sourcing high quality CBD oil at a reasonable price proved difficult as the market is awash with misinformation and poor practice. Claims about CBD content (potency) are often misleading and the industry is rife with stories of lab tests being conducted on products which prove that they don't contain what they claim to contain. What is evident is that some people are making an awful lot of money selling products with very low levels of CBD at extortionate prices. And let's face it - it's the CBD people are paying for not the carrier oils.'
We have put countless hours into finding out all we can about CBD oil and where to source the best products. We fully understand what makes a great product and what represents great value for money, so you can be confident that buying your CBD products from The Herb Kingdom is a great decision. After all, the products we sell are the products which Alex uses himself.'
I was sent one bottle of THK 600 oil in the hope that it will help alleviate my Carpal Tunnel symptoms. *This product is made from full spectrum CBD oil and contains 600mg of CBD carried in non-GMO organic hemp seed oil, with each drop containing 3mg of CBD.* *See full description here. All the Herb Kingdom products are made from filtered golden oil which produces a much better tasting, higher CBD content and value for money. You can read more about the process here.
When you first start taking CBD it is best to start 'low and slow' until you find a dose that suits you best. As the website says 'The general consensus is that 5-10mg per day for the first week and doubling up in week two is a sensible place to start. But of course each person reacts differently and your ECS (Endocannabinoid System) may or may not already be awake. The key is to allow the first month to find your ‘sweet spot’ and don’t try to rush things. If the CBD oil gives you the relief you were hoping for it will have been worth the wait.'
The recommended dosage of the drops I have are 2 - 3 drops placed under the tongue for sixty seconds before swallowing for twice a day. The bottle provides 200 drops, so around a month's supply.
I tried this for four weeks and gradually increased my dosage and although I was no worse with my carpal tunnel, I have not found significant improvement which is a shame. I have been advised to 'up' the dosage again, so will try a bottle of THK1200 next.
After using this dosage for four weeks, I can honestly say my carpal tunnel is improving greatly in my left hand and also quite a bit in my right hand. So I am very relieved and also pleased. I shall continue to take the oil at this level, with a recommended break of 5 days every two months. Maybe one day, both hands will be 'cured.'
Another way that CBD products may help some people is for anxiety and panic attacks. I have had a fear of public transport for many years and over the last week, it was necessary for me to make short bus trips of approximately 15 mins each time. This always makes me anxious, but last week, it seemed comparatively 'normal.' I know that users have reported anxiety issues improving on CBD products and I like to think that this is what has and is still happening to me. I gradually became used to trains over the last year or so too, but had to 'steel' myself prior to getting on. A recent journey held no problems at all and the train was PACKED for nearly two hours!
A customer who suffered with agoraphobia, reported that after 10 days of taking the oil, she had gone out for a coffee with her mother to a packed town centre cafe. This was the first time she had done this for over 2 years!!
Maybe you know friends and families who may benefit from trying CBD ?
I shall update readers on my progress over the coming months.
