CBD has become very trendy in recent years, but is it a complete fad? Well, I’ve been testing out TRIP drinks and oils to find out for myself. In this comprehensive TRIP CBD review, I’ll walk you through my personal experiences with their products, delving into their effects on my mental well-being, sleep quality, and, of course, the taste and quality of the products themselves.

You may benefit from finding out about the state of my health and well-being. I am a 29-year-old female with depression, anxiety and many a phobia. I’m also pretty certain that I am autistic and so suffer from regular meltdowns. I’d say, all of this makes me a pretty good candidate for CBD.

So, I’ve been taking their strong CBD oils for the past 2 months and have been topping these up with their CBD-infused sparkling drinks. I’m now armed with all the necessary CBD intel and am excited to share my experience with you!

If you are looking for an effective CBD supplement that is actually enjoyable to consume, then you’ll love TRIP as much as I do. Their drinks and oils are delicious plus they have helped me to reduce my anxiety and to sleep better. Their offering is reasonably priced, with products to suit everyone.

My experience: The pros

Now you know a little bit more about the brand, let me take you through my own experience with their products and how they have positively affected my health and wellbeing.

It has helped to alleviate my anxiety

The following question gets asked A LOT on the internet: “Is TRIP CBD good for anxiety?“. But this should come as no surprise since today’s world is incredibly anxiety-inducing and it can be hard to find calm amongst it.

If you’ve found yourself asking this question too, then I am here to tell you that yes, TRIP CBD is great for anxiety! As an incredibly anxious person, I have avoided many a breakdown with a dose of TRIP CBD oil under the tongue. It has gotten me through tough work days, bad hangovers (when my anxiety really loves to come out and play), and busy crowds.

If I am going somewhere busy or I’m going to be meeting some new people, I will pack a can of TRIP and drink it whilst I am out. It really helps to settle my anxious brain and allows me to get on with my day. If I am going through a really stressful time I like to use the high-strength oil. After just 30 minutes I find my brain stops whizzing around worrying about every little thing.

The thing is, I never actually feel a huge sense of calm come over me. It’s not like smoking weed. So don’t go looking for this in a CBD product! After a short while, I may just notice that my mind has started to relax and I soon find all the things I was worrying about before to be quite trivial.

The drinks and oils have a lovely taste

If you’ve tried any CBD supplements before then you may know that a lot of them are plagued with an overpowering hemp taste that stops you from enjoying them. Unless you love the taste of hemp that is. However, I found all of the TRIP drinks and oils really quite tasty.

You can definitely taste that there is CBD in there, especially if you sniff the drinks. Plus it does leave an aftertaste in your mouth that is subtly hemp-like. But they have been very clever with their flavour choices, all of which do a great job of complementing and masking the taste.

The drinks come in three flavours: Peach Ginger, Lemon Basil and Elderflower Mint. All of them are really tasty and refreshing. But my personal favourite has to be the Lemon Basil because I love anything basil.

The oils come in two flavours: Wild Mint and Orange Blossom. Once again, these are both really lovely and I find they leave a really lovely cooling sensation in the mouth. But if I had to choose between the two, I would definitely pick Wild Mint. This is because I really like to take the oil before bed and this flavour compliments the flavour of my toothpaste, haha.

I am sleeping a lot better

I wish I was one of those people who could put their head on their pillow and fall into a lovely deep sleep, waking up at a reasonable time in the morning. But I’m really not. Instead, I’m the kind of person to lay in bed wide awake for hours until eventually drifting off into a rubbish restless sleep made up of relentless jaw grinding (yay for bruxism).

A lot of this is down to stress and as much as I try to work on my stress levels using meditation, yoga and breath work, nothing has helped quite as much as CBD does. I take about 30mg of TRIP CBD oil 30 minutes before bed and I tend to drift off a lot quicker and my bruxism has pretty much disappeared.

I now wake up feeling a lot more rested and have zero headaches or jaw aches (a side effect of grinding). I have even started to dream again, something I haven’t experienced properly in years.

It definitely helps that TRIP sell a high-strength CBD oil, and it is one of the most affordable options you can find in the UK. So if you too have sleep problems, make sure to integrate this oil into your nighttime routine!

My experience: The cons

Whilst I really enjoyed the experience of consuming both TRIP CBD drinks and oils, nothing is absolutely perfect. Find out what I think could be improved.

Their drinks contain sweeteners

I completely understand why most drinks companies are turning to sweeteners, they contain fewer calories and brands can avoid harsh sugar taxes, but my gut really doesn’t get on well with them. Some are worse than others, and fortunately, TRIP has used stevia which I can tolerate enough to enjoy their drinks. This is because stevia is one of the more natural sweeteners that you can use.

I do find however that when my gut is less inflamed (usually when I’m taking probiotic supplements), I react less to sweeteners like Stevia. Especially in small quantities, like in these drinks. But if you suffer from gut problems, then it is worth knowing that you too could struggle with sweeteners.

I would personally love a variation that uses sugar, or the natural sweetness from fruit juice. But for now, I can enjoy these as a treat every so often and make the most out of the CBD in their high-strength oils, which contain no sweeteners.

My verdict: TRIP really works!

If you are on the lookout for a CBD supplement, or just a product that will help bring some more calm to your life, then you should definitely try out TRIP. All of their products are dosed well, which means they are effective at reducing anxiety and inflammation. Plus they may even help you to sleep better.

I have been testing out all of their products over the last few months, and the benefits have been numerous. As I talked about above, not only did it help me to manage my anxiety, but it also improved my sleep, getting me to sleep sooner with a lot less bruxism throughout the night.

I have tried other CBD supplements, like capsules and gummies, but none have them have been anywhere near as effective as TRIP has been. Plus, all of TRIP’s products taste great!

That being said, CBD can be expensive. So if you are looking for a long-term solution to anxiety and stress, then do keep this in mind. However, I have found TRIP’s oils to be really reasonably priced in comparison to other products on the market. Their drinks are also a similar price to other health drinks that you find in the supermarket, like kombucha and natural sodas.

So, whether you struggle with anxiety and depression as much as I do, or you need a little helping hand with your day-to-day stress, then I would definitely recommend giving TRIP CBD a try. Start with low doses, or one of their drinks, and gradually work your way up as you start seeing the benefits.

Frequently asked questions

Here are my answers to your FAQs.

What is TRIP?

TRIP is the UK’s largest and most popular CBD brand. They sell a range of sparkling drinks infused with CBD, as well as two different flavoured CBD oils in two different strengths. They are on a mission to spread the word about CBD with products that are both enjoyable and easy to use.

All TRIP CBD products, including their drinks and oils, are completely legal. This is because they only contain CBD and no THC. This means you won’t get high from consuming their products, nor will you get arrested. But you will benefit from the calming effects of CBD.

What does TRIP CBD do?

TRIP’s products contain CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, a substance found in the hemp plant. It is known for its calming effects on both the body and mind. This means that you may experience the following when consuming TRIP CBD drinks and oils:

  1. A reduction in anxiety and stress
  2. Better sleep
  3. Less inflammation in your gut
  4. Less skin flare-ups (like acne and psoriasis)
  5. Potential pain reduction (in high doses)

How strong is TRIP CBD?

TRIP CBD comes in a few different strengths to suit different needs. For instance, all TRIP drinks are infused with 15mg of CBD, the perfect amount for providing you with a little bit of calm throughout the day. Their oils come in two different strengths, one which contains 300mg of CBD per bottle and the other 1000mg of CBD per bottle. The latter is their high-strength product, which I find is great for tackling stubborn anxiety and inflammation. You may want a lighter strength if you are just starting out on your CBD journey or if you only need it to combat light stress.
