Review: Aries Essentials

By Joy Johnston

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

For those beginning to explore the potential benefits of CBD, I highly recommend finding a high-quality product like Aries Essentials that's as close to pure CBD as possible. This way, you can better target if CBD addresses your particular needs, and also better track any side effects. Once you discover how a more pure form of CBD works for you, then you can experiment with products that combine CBD with other beneficial supplements.

I had the pleasure of trying a sample pack from Aries Essentials, which included the CBD Body Cream, CBD Oil, and CBD Rollerball. What I initially noticed was the packaging, which I appreciated. The black and white label and tasteful logo are both professional and discreet. The company's CBD Oil contains just two ingredients: phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil and MCT fractionated coconut oil. The flavor of the tincture is mild and pleasant thanks to the CO2 extraction, and not harsh as can be found in inferior CBD products. At 7.5 mg of CBD per serving, this is an ideal product for those trying CBD for the first time. I experienced a mild calming effect; you can adjust your dosage as needed.

The CBD Rollerball is ideal for discreet use while out and about. It contains the same two pure ingredients as the company's CBD Oil product. This is ideal for those who may be sensitive to essential oils, fragrances and other additives. I appreciate the unscented formula and how easy it is to discreetly apply in public. It's great for any time you feel your anxiety level spiking.

Rounding out the offerings from Aries Essentials is the CBD Body Cream. This delicately scented balm is made with phytocannabinoid-rich hemp oil, willow bark extract, and essential oil blend (lavender, tea tree, and eucalyptus.) I found the scent to be calming and refreshing. The cream does not leave a greasy residue and works into the skin quickly. I used it on a couple of rough patches on my hands (thanks to all of the pandemic-induced hand washing) and it helped calm down a patch that had turned red, dry, and itchy.

Founded on the concept of CBD being beneficial for the family, Aries Essentials takes pride in offering products that are organic, non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free and free of sulfates, pesticides, and artificial dyes. All products are third-party lab tested and contain less than 0.3% THC (less than the legal limit.) The company's Certificate of Analysis (COA) for its products are available upon request.

I recommend Aries Essentials for anyone seeking quality CBD products in discreet packaging. Those sensitive to additives will appreciate the focused approach that Aries Essentials takes to create its products.
