Looking for a Crescent Canna CBD Oil review to find out if it’s worth trying? I’ve got you covered! Read on for my complete thoughts on the varieties, taste, and effectiveness (for me) of this affordable options.
*FYI, Crescent Canna sent me a selection of their oils for my 2020 Holiday Gift Guide, with no expectation of a full review. I decided to do a review because I like the brand and want to share my opinions with you to help you on your own CBD oil journey.
Last note before we start, I promise: this is not medical advice. I am not your doctor. Heck, I’m not a doctor at all. When I talk about “effectiveness,” I am speaking solely in terms of how it works for me. Everyone is different.
Complete Crescent Canna CBD Oil Review
With so many CBD oil brands popping up every other day, it’s hard to know which are worth your hard-earned cash and which are a big giant “skip.” I’ve tried both ends of the spectrum. My very first CBD experience was with a cheap-o brand that tasted so nasty, I still have 3/4 of the bottle over a year later. I’ve also worked with some amazing CBD brands this year that offer a full range of delicious options. Among them, Crescent Canna.
If you’re a “bottom line it for me” type of person and just want a review in 25 words or less, let me help you out. Canna Crescent is affordable without sacrificing quality, effectiveness (for me) or taste. So yes, they’re worth trying, in my opinion. Keep reading for the significantly longer review. 🙂
What I look for in a good CBD Oil
Before we jump in, it’s probably helpful if you know what I look for in a good CBD oil. If you’ve read my other CBD reviews, you can skip this part. If you want to see them, you can always search “CBD oil” in my search bar. (I’m not linking them because today is Crescent Canna’s exclusive turn in the spotlight).
Here’s a basic rundown:
- What’s their story? Their background? How do they make their CBD oil?
- Do they offer products that I would actually use? (Tinctures are my favorite, but gummies, creams, etc are also great).
- How do they taste? (For edible versions, obviously).
- How do they work for my particular issues?
- Are they reasonably priced compared to other brands? Are they worth that money?
Let’s start at the top and work our way down.
What’s their story & how do they make their CBD?
Before I even consider trying a CBD oil brand, I always check out the About page. As the name implies, you can tell a lot about a company by what they put on that page. Fly-by-night pop-up brands throw a few words up and call it a day. Good companies take the time to tell you why you should choose them.
Crescent Canna’s About page is very detailed, but one part of their mission statement really stands out and sums up the company: “Crescent Canna wants to earn your trust with products that are extremely high in quality yet affordable for anyone.”
They also go into detail about their small batch processes, and if you actually understand how that works- unlike me- you can check it all out here. The short version: they only use USA-grown organic hemp from farms as committed to quality as they are. Each farm has to meet their strict standards, and all hemp is tested at 3rd-party labs
Why types of products does Crescent Canna offer?
Crescent Canna offers a pretty wide range of CBD oil products in their shop, including:
- Drops in multiple flavors and potencies
- CBD gummies
- Freeze roller roll-on CBD for muscles and joints
- Vape cartridges
- Isolate powders
- Hemp flowers
- CBD pet products
I only tried their drops, so the rest of this review will focus solely on those.
How do their drops taste?
Remember how I mentioned above that my very first CBD oil experience was less than stellar? For the longest time. I wouldn’t touch the stuff again because I thought it would all taste that nasty. Then, last year- thanks to another gift guide entry- I learned that CBD oil doesn’t just come in a weird viscous “donkey feet” flavor!
If you have sensitive taste buds like me, you’ll be happy to know that Crescent Canna’s drops are positively delightful. They offer three different flavors (plus unflavored), but my favorite is definitely the Mandarin Lime. The overall texture is also surprisingly non-viscous. Even my other favorite brands have a thick oily feel to them, but Crescent Canna is shockingly light on the tongue (or under it, more accurately).
Did Crescent Canna work for me?
Once again, please remember that I’m only sharing how Crescent Canna works for me and my issues. I make no guarantees about whether it will work for you.
I take CBD oil for multiple reasons, including
- Headaches (including migraines)
- Pain (back, neck, carpal tunnel, general joint pain)
- Severe anxiety and panic disorder
Here’s a run down of how Crescent Canna helped with each one.
For the last 27 years, I’ve had a headache at least 5 out of 7 days a week. Some are just low-grade tension headaches brought on by stress. Others are debilitating migraines that leave me screaming in my bed. Crescent Canna CBD drops worked well for my everyday tension headaches. Very little works for my worst migraines (not even my prescription meds work every time), but CBD oil does take the edge off them. It also helps relieve the nausea that comes along with migraines, so I can actually keep my meds down long enough for them to kick in.
Speaking of nausea, I’ve been dealing with a major case of vertigo brought on by an ear infection over the last few weeks, and Crescent Canna really helps with that.
I have a myriad of chronic pain issues ranging from fairly severe lower back issues to mild-to-moderate joint pain. Last week, I also contacted Lyme disease (in freaking November!) from a deer tick that embedded itself so deep into my skin, the wound still hasn’t healed. I’m on antibiotics for it, but I still feel pretty cruddy overall. Of course, I feel cruddy most days anyway, so I don’t know if it’s the Lyme, the antibiotic or just my regular issues.
Crescent Canna manages my milder to mid-range moderate pain (like my wrist and hand pain) almost completely. For more severe issues, like really bad lower back days, as with migraines it takes the edge off quite a bit.
Crescent Canna works very well for lowering my typically high baseline anxiety level and keeping me feeling fairly even-keeled throughout much of the day. It also lessens the impact of massive panic attacks, which are becoming increasingly more frequent these days.
While depression has always been an issue for me, I had it under control for the better part of the last two decades. Then 2020 hit, and I’ve spent the better part of the last 10 months either on the verge of tears or uncontrollably sobbing. CBD oil in general- including Crescent Canna- is really the only thing that works for me that I can actually tolerate (I have bad reactions to all forms of antidepressants).
Long story short, Crescent Canna almost completely manages my psychological conditions and provides marked relief from most of my physicals conditions.
Is Crescent Canna worth the money?
As Crescent Canna’s prices for their 500 mg drops are a good deal lower than other brands (without being so low that you need to worry about quality issues), yes, I definitely think it’s worth the money.
