The word is finally out. TV presenter and author Claudia Winkleman has joined the Cannaray team – not only as our ambassador, but also as the fearless leader of our CBD revolution.
But Claudia started using our blends long before the big reveal. In fact, our capsules and oils played a key role in her day-to-day lockdown routine, after her cousin sent her a bottle of our Bright Days CBD Oil Drops. “I thought CBD oil was some fandango thing, and I was never interested,” she admits. Here’s how a dropper of citrus-fresh CBD changed her whole mindset…
One Wise Cousin and Discovering CBD
So how did Claudia come across Cannaray?
"During lockdown, I was chatting to my cousin, Sara – super-hot, runs the music business – and she told me, ‘You should try CBD oil’. I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’
She uses Cannaray, and she sent me a bottle of the Bright Days oil drops. I’ve never waited 30 seconds in my life, but I put it on and waited for it to absorb ... Now it’s just part of my routine.”
And we can’t say we’re surprised. Many CBD beginners start out with a CBD oil, before branching out with capsules, gummies and even topicals. The trick is to squeeze it directly underneath your tongue and hold it there. This allows the oil to quickly and easily get into your bloodstream.
Claudia’s CBD Routine
How does CBD work into a daily routine? Now that lockdown is over, Claudia says her day starts with
"A decaf coffee with about 17 sugars – because why not? Life’s too short.
Then I go and do the school run, come back, have a nap, and speak to about three of my girlfriends for quite a long time. After that I do a bit of work, reading out loud. I might have a spray tan, I’ll talk to my parents, I’ll have an enormous lunch, then another nap.
By then, it’s time to pick up the kids and try to help them with their homework. I read all the time, then I’ll have a hot bath and take one of the Bright Days CBD Capsules. After that, I get into bed… That’s my routine and it works for me."
Claudia’s Capsule Love
Claudia is still a fan of our CBD oils. She loves the pepperminty Night Time CBD Oil Drops because “number one, it has sexy packaging. And it’s just next to my bed, so it’s super easy”.
However, a bottle of the Bright Days CBD Capsules is her top pick.
"I’m a capsule lover,” she says. “I don’t take any other vitamins, I eat quite a lot of toast, I nap when I can, I speak to my girlfriends probably four hours a day, my eldest is leaving home, my littlest is changing schools… There’s a lot going on, but I sort of think that’s a little magic capsule, and that’s what I take.
"I don’t understand the science behind CBD capsules and I never need to understand it. It’s beyond me. It’s like the science of eyeliner – I don’t need to know about it, I just know I love it."
Try CBD for Yourself
If you’re new to CBD – like Claudia was before the pandemic – you’ll love our trial-sized bottles of CBD oils and capsules. Perfect for beginners (or packing in your weekend staycation bag) the Discovery CBD Capsules give you 20 caps in one miniature jar. Fancy a flavoured oil? Then opt for our Discovery CBD Oil Drops Kit, which features one Bright Days blend and one Night Time bottle. That means round-the-clock care is sorted.
