CBD is infused in almost everything these days, from skincare and oils to pillows and gym clothes. A lot can still be seen as a gimmick but what category do capsules fall in and for what benefit?
We know that CBD was isolated from the Hemp plant in 1940 and has been used without much research ever since. Oils, in particular, are known to be the fastest way to get it into your system but what about capsules? Well, they are easy to travel with, are consistent in dosage, and are easy to take. They can take an hour or two to start having an effect so great to take alongside your morning vitamins or when you are winding down for the evening.
Here’s what Medterra has to say about the brand…
‘We want you to see us as more than a logo and pretty, purple packaging. At Medterra we have dreams, passions, and ambitions just like you – ours just happen to include delivering quality CBD products at an affordable price.’
‘Medterra provides customers with true seed-to-sale purchases. Our industrial hemp is grown and extracted in accordance within the strict guidelines of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. Each and every product that leaves the facility must be third-party tested to ensure consistency and quality.’
‘Through industry efforts, we hope to remove the stigma associated with cannabis cultivation and educate the nation on the efficacy and sustainability of this miraculous, naturally occurring compound.’
Let’s start with the packaging…
The clean white, purple, and silver capsule bottles are very on-trend with the ‘Very Peri‘ Pantone colour of the year. Easy to open but not so easy that children could open it without a struggle and easy to throw into a bag knowing they won’t open and spill.
The small gel capsules are so easy to take with little ingredients added. The CBD is suspended with MCT oil (fractioned coconut oil). My only concern with the ingredients is that they contain gelatine, meaning they are not vegan or vegetarian friendly. In this case, maybe a CBD oil would be better for you.
The website is full of information regarding all of their products, lab results, and also hundreds upon hundreds of positive reviews. We already love Medterras pain relief cream and are excited to see where they go from here.
