    started taking the oil 2 weeks ago, I must admit I had not noticed a radical effect but after 2 knee replacements and infection lasting for 8 months in one knee, the pain has definitely lessened, also it,s a nice nutty flavour, thank you Vera also the arthritus in toes and fingers feels looser.

    My beloved nearly 16 year old Maltese cross was suffering from the crippling effects of arthritis, it was heartbreaking to watch and all other treatments have proved futile. As a last desperate attempt to literally save his life we started him on the Hemp Oil my husband has been using for the last 6 months, hoping for even a fraction of the amazing benefits my husband has experienced. After about 2 weeks I couldn’t believe the difference in him or believe we were even contemplating ethnizing this animal. He has been transformed to his former self, limping only occasionally and his happy little demeanor has returned. I’m just so grateful that we decided to give these drops a go and even though I know my little dog is in the twilight years of his life I now know his remaining years will be pain free and happy. Can’t thank you enough.

    Bought this for my partner a few weeks ago for his anxiety and sleep, and it has helped tremendously. He takes 5 drops in the morning and 5 at night and saw an improvement in his anxiety and general mood within a matter of days. Have since bought more, and even started our dog on some drops who has chronic arthritis and has been moving better / generally happier mood. Will be a return customer and will continue to recommend to friends!

    I am a 59 year old tradesman and I have been taking anti inflammatories for over 25 years for a lower back injury. In recent years I have had two complete hip replacements due to cronic arthritis. which has now spread to my knees and hands. I have just ordered my second bottle of Hemp Oil, it is amazing. I have no further need for anti inflammatories! I am back to working six days a week and swinging a golf club. I no longer avoid stairs and can work for a good distance without discomfort. The swelling has reduced as has the cronic pain. Its not completely gone, but the level of improvement is truely amazing, far better than the anti inflamatories and pain meds.I have recommended the oils to a number of friends and family memebers and they are very happy with it.
    Most recently we thought we may have to have are dog puy down also due to cronic arthritis. So I staretd him on the Hemp Oil, much smaller dosage of course and within three weeks has has completely turned around. He now bounces up and down the staircase, goes for long walks with my wife and like me his overall sense of well being is much improved.
    Thanks Mac, I’ll be a customer for life.

    Hi Mac, I purchased the starter pack from you on recommendation from my daughter as I have knee pain in both knees. But before I noticed any change I was swooped by a magpie and ended in the gutter with severe bruises and damage to my elbow, having been knocked off my bike. I rubbed the Hemp, comfrey and arnica balm onto the bruises and elbow straight away and felt so much relief it was brilliant . Bruising was very colourful, but dlidn’t last as long as I thought it would and the elbow is nearly back to normal. So I will ordering more of the balm.

    I bought it for my 6 year old dog who due to hip and knee issues and arthritis. He was not a happy puppy! I noticed a big improvement after using the Hemp in Almond Oil & Tumeric after about 1 week of putting drops in his food. Now after a few months he is walking and running. As a bonus his itchy skin has disappeared, his coat is shiny and he is a much happier and mobile dog.

    Purchased our first bottle
    Found it a huge help in sleep improvement
    We sleep significantly better
    Unfortunately hasn’t done much for reduction of arthritis pain and inflammation
    Will continue to purchase the hemp oil for its sleeping properties.
    Good service and delivery of product.

      Hello, Many use the Hemp/Comfrey & Arnica balm in conjunction with the Oil for maximum benefits applied to joints. Please read some of the many comments on this. Good luck

  8. Mac McGauley (verified owner)

    Hi Paul, It depends on the size of the dog, for small dogs many people start with 2 drops twice a day, give me ring if you need any more help.

    Update on my pooch, Bayley (10yo male Shihtzu). I purchased the Hemp/Turmeric oil to assist Bayley with chronic joint issues and a really awful tumour on his inner ear flap – maybe two months ago? His joint issues continue – a little improved. I’m hoping to see further improvement with continued use. The tumour, however, is now reduced 80% – it has almost gone. I’ve been applying the oil topically twice daily. Without any exaggeration, it noticeably shrank yesterday between the morning and evening applications, a visible difference. At this rate of healing, I am hoping it will clear completely in a couple of weeks.

    It is also worth noting that whilst Bayley is experiencing difficulty walking, he generally picks up after he has his dose. Swelling in his front elbow joints isn’t as pronounced so the oil is definitely working some magic.

    thank you Mac and team

    • Mac McGauley (verified owner)

      That’s really sweet, and what a surprise to us all here at Black Sheep Farm! All the best for Bayley.

    I have osteomyelitis discitis in my spine in other words infection in my spine this product has not really worked for me but it seems to have made me sleep a little better though.
    Does anyone have any suggestions for me I am at my wits end I have had this for nearly 12 months now and is now affecting my mental health because I am always in pain.

    • Mac McGauley (verified owner)

      Hi Mark, yes it doesn’t work for everyone, I will email you some more suggestions now.

    Very Happy Customers thus far.

  13. Robyn Sturgess (verified owner)

    I purchased this product to assist with pain in my knees. Wow!! Not only has this helped enormously but it has stopped me from snoring which is an added bonus. My nose always felt blocked, when laying down, hence whilst sleeping breathed through my mouth laying on my back, I would even wake myself up with my snoring. My husband is delighted. I now wake up on my side not back, and am breathing through my nose.
    Another bonus is my fingernails are looking fantastic. Usually my cuticles appeared inflamed but not now. 5 drops under the tongue morning and evening. Fantastic!! Thank you.

  14. Trace (verified owner)

    I’ve had a lot of trouble with arthritis pain in the knee due to a old rugby injury. Tried heaps of products that do not work.
    I use this product in conjunction with a hemp balm and all I can say is WOW. It works. 6 drops morning and night and the hemp balm in the mornings has worked great for me.
    I will be ordering more.

    • Mac McGauley (verified owner)

      Thanks for the feedback Trace.

    I started taking this product on 1st July and noticed by the end of the 2nd week that I was calmer in myself, clearer in my thinking process. and not so anxious about my future. I even started telling close friends about taking this product and since then three have asked for the web link. I believe this product has worked very well for me and even though I haven’t seen yet a lot of change with my niggly knee aches and pains and sleeping pattern it, definitely has helped me with experiencing calmer persona.
    I would highly recommend this product and plan to continue using the hemp oil and tumeric. I have just recently purchased the larger bottle as I expect to be finished with the 25ml by the end of this month. I have diligently taken 5 drops in the morning and 5 drops at night. Consistency has been a big key to my success with this product.

    • Mac McGauley (verified owner)

      Hi Julie, you can try taking 8 drops twice a weeks, and see how that will improve the other issues that you have. It works differently for each person, and it may need adjusting for your needs Good luck Mac

  16. Debbie Ross (verified owner)

    Fabulous products – would thoroughly recommend. I am waiting on a knee replacement and it certainly helps with the pain.
    Use the rubs as well and they are wonderful. So good

  17. Mal Taylor (verified owner)

    Good product, timely delivery, good value. Taken orally we have found it reduces stress,
    without impacting on awareness in any way. Well done and thank you Mac, to you and your team.

    When the government stopped doctors prescribing Panadeine Forte and Diazepam and left us with nothing to control pain or muscle spasms, quality of life vanished along with mobility. My son reminded me of a friend who had MS and tried Nimbin CBD, it worked so well that she didn’t need her pain medications any more. I bought some Hemp oil. First night recommended starter dose 5 drops am and pm, under the tongue. I took it at about 8.30pm and was awake until about 1.30am then had three hours of beautiful sleep. Next day spent online with peer reviewed articles and medical journals, found out that CBD reacts badly with thyroxine medication, either doubles the effect, ( heart palpitations, fibrillation or worse), or wipes out medication making it useless. Thyroxine and CBD use same ‘receptors’ in thyroid gland, CBD wins. Also discovered that a too low dose can cause wakefulness. So I took am and pm drops together at night and increased dose a bit to total 12drops. Still wide awake until 2 or 3am then great sleep for about 3 hours. Now sleep deprived, and knowing overdose only makes you sleepy and headachy, in desperation I doubled the dose added one for luck and started taking 25 drops pm only and put the dosage time back from 9pm to 5pm. Now I am awake in the evening and get hours of beautiful sleep all night. CBD does not stop the shrieking pain of a fractured spine but it is helping background pain, and general equilibrium, I feel as if my pre-trauma self is back, psychologist very pleased with improvement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it come with Dosage / Instructions?

Yes, we include a leaflet with instructions with every order, here is a sample:

It can take up to 1hr to start feeling the effects from our Hemp Oil range (and 1 minute for the Nano range), and will last between 6-8hrs. The effect is cumulative, some people will feel it right away whilst others may take up to 2 weeks to notice its effects.

All people react differently to dosing, there is no ‘one size fits all’, so it can take time to find the right amount. Too much can also be counterproductive, increase a bit at a time (up-titrating) to see the effect, then adjust again to find the optimum dose for you.
