AD: Mistatera CBD Oil | Cannabinoid-based alternative for physical and mental health issues

CBD seems to have turned into a massive craze recently both for physical and mental health problems. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while, but was unsure of some of the methods involved and of course didn’t want to use something medicinal that could potentially be harmful. Mistatera gifted me their 10ml 5% CBD oil in exchange for an honest review, meaning that I can give all of you the low-down on what to expect should you venture into the new and exciting world of CBD.

Mistatera

“We started our journey with a mission to open a completely new field for the use of cannabinoids – supporting our bodies, to keep them as we always wanted them. In the best possible shape. In total balance.
We had a lot of experienced people present at the table for our first meeting. Colleagues with knowledge from the cultivation, processing, production and selling of CBD products. But most importantly it was the wisdom that brought us together and ignited the light in our souls. The wisdom that cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa) are so beneficial to the body that, from now on, we endeavour to make the world aware of it. Not only for when problems occur, but much earlier. Now.
With our combined experience from the feedback of our customers using CBD products, we have more than 40,000 instances to rely on. We realised that cannabinoids in general not only cure their problems, but also, and most importantly, improve the quality of their lives. The majority of customers keep using the products even after the problems disappear, because they simply live better.”

My Review

Many people have reported a lot of success with CBD, however I’ve also seen reviews where people have found it didn’t really work for them. I’ve seen multiple claims that it’s a “wonder drug” but I think it’s important first of all to remember that there is no substance out there that could be labelled as such – what works for some won’t work for others, and whilst CBD may be effective in relieving pain for some it won’t work for everyone and everything. That being said, my sceptic mind was pleasantly surprised whilst using Mistatera’s 10ml 5% CBD oil.

It’s recommended to take five drops of the oil every morning and night and is fairly easy to administer – all you need to do is drop the oil underneath your tongue, let sit for 30 to 60 seconds, and then swallow. The oil has a strange taste – almost like strong tea with a syrupy texture – but it’s not overly unpleasant and you become used to it very quickly. It’s preferable to the other common method of taking CBD which is vaping – there still hasn’t been enough testing in my eyes to truly deem this as a safe practice given the possible side effects to the lungs.

I initially chose to use the CBD oil for two issues – my chronic migraines, which I suffer with daily ranging from a bad headache for a couple of hours to intense pain lasting up to three days, and for general mood and anxiety linked to suffering with Seasonal Affective Disorder. I used the oil between September and the start of November, however I was then put on Venlafaxine – I ceased using the oil at this point as I knew the Venlafaxine would skew any results of the testing (however it has been interesting to compare the two together, as I take the Venlafaxine for both my migraines and my mood).

I started noticing the effects of the CBD oil on my mood within a few days, taking it just before I went on holiday. I’m the person that always gets a migraine during a flight – I still got the migraine, as expected, however it didn’t actually start until after I’d got off the plane, which was unusual, and it wasn’t as severe as it could have been.

And that’s when it got really interesting. I use Migraine Buddy to track my migraines, and looking at the past couple of months I’d been getting three and seven headaches or migraines a week, ranging between 1 and 9 on my migraine pain scale (1 being mild, 10 being very severe). Once I’d started taking the CBD oil I was averaging two to three headaches or migraines a week, with most of them ranging between 1 and 6 on the pain scale. I only had two migraines above the 6 pain rating – one of these was within the first couple of days taking the oil, when it would have been unlikely to have started working properly, and the other one was on a day where I really overdid it with work.

Mood I didn’t notice quite so much of a difference for however I’m not certain that my frame of testing could be considered valid anyway, given that I was on holiday for part of it and I naturally would have felt better from both the fact that I was relaxing and the extra vitamin D boost from the sun (visiting the Canary Islands always gets rid of my SAD symptoms in a flash). I’d say my results are inconclusive for mood, so that’s something I’d really like to investigate further as I have heard good things.

The really interesting part of my experiment came once I stopped taking the CBD oil and only used the Venlafaxine. Whilst Venlafaxine has been brilliant for my mood I noticed my migraines starting to creep up again – since starting it I’ve found I’ve been getting between two and six headaches or migraines a week, with the pain severity ranging between 3 and 8 on the pain scale. This suggests that the CBD oil really was making a difference with both the amount and severity of the attacks, so I plan to speak to my doctor about combining both the CBD oil and the Venlafaxine together to see how that works out.

Final Thoughts

Whilst Mistatera’s 5% CBD oil understandably doesn’t live up to the “wonder drug” label so many have put CBD as a whole, it’s clear to see from the results of my experiment that it’s made a difference to my migraines that has positively impacted my quality of life. Going even a few days without a headache or migraine was something I hadn’t experienced in a long time which was so refreshing.

Although I can’t vouch so much for mood I’d definitely recommend looking into Mistatera’s 5% CBD oil as an option if you suffer from chronic pain (particularly headaches and migraines) – just remember to always consult a doctor before doing so. Mistatera also offer an 11% CBD oil which is said to be even more effective in combating pain and anxiety.

Purchase Links

If you’d like to try out CBD oil for yourself (remember to consult your doctor beforehand, especially if you are taking any other medications) then you can do so on Mistatera’s website.

It’s also worth noting that Mistatera are now selling 2ml sample bottles of their 5% CBD oil for those that just want to test the waters… These are currently free (just pay shipping) so if you’re on the fence then now is the perfect time to try it out!

  1. Im definitely going to share this post (: Thank you for trying this out and sharing your experience I feel like I do not really know much about CBD oils and it is definitely something that needs more awareness so that people are aware of their options.

    1. Thank you, and I totally agree. Not a cure-all, but it made a difference and that could be really useful for some people (myself included – having that extra relief improved my life and functioning so much)

  2. My husband won’t let me try CBD oil even though I’m open to it. He is totally against it. He says it’s only popular because of the media and hype around it. However, I don’t like taking meds, including pain killers and would prefer a more natural option such as CBD.

    1. I think it’s always worth trying something – I was sceptical because of the hype but it genuinely did make a difference for me. You should show him Mistatera’s CBD oil samples they do (you only pay shipping), but I guess also remember that it’s your choice and nothing to do with him – if you need pain relief then you are completely entitled to try a variety of different things for it. If you do manage to try some then let me know how you get on – I’d be interested to hear whether it helps other conditions as well.

  3. I’ve heard a lot of success about CBD oil. My aunt uses it to help with her arthritis and it helps her loads. I can’t use it due to the medication I’m on but if I come off it, CBD is definitely something I’d consider! xxx

  4. I’ve always been open to trying CBD oil. I’m glad it’s being normalized in most places however where I live, it’s still very frowned upon (maybe illegal as well). I’m very glad it made a difference to your migraines, those are no fun at all!

  5. I’ve heard so many good things about CBD oil but I haven’t tried it yet. I’ve heard people say it’s great for anxiety which would be worth trying out – but hearing how much they’ve improved your migraines is great! I get them too (but nowhere near as often as you do) and thinking that there’s something that could help with the pain is quite reassuring. I’ll have to try the sample!

  6. Hannah, your review reminds of the Black Seed Oil whose slogan is ‘it cures everything but death’.

    Each one of us knows someone who needs urgent medical intervention. In the desperation to get a cure, people are willing to try anything.

    I once traveled with a close relative who needed surgery. On opting to try a natural regime first including CBD oil, ever since, they are as fit as fiddle.

    These oil and other natural oils do not work alone. I took part in the program (excluding the CBD in my case) since I was not unwell. First, we had a colon cleanse. Flaxseed oil, vegetable, and fruit juice, a natural carotenoid 1000mg Calcium source too. The taste of unadulterated foods was instant.

    Isn’t a lifestyle change with lasting benefits what we should embrace?

    1. You’re completely right – I think having a holistic approach to health and wellbeing is the answer, and we should really be looking at these sorts of long-term solutions, rather than just grabbing the first short-term instead. That’s what I’m trying to do with my health at the moment, and I’m excited to see how it goes!
