NanoCraft CBD Review My Two Week Experiment with NanoCraft CBD
Author: Joy Hughes
CBD is everywhere; and with new CBD companies popping up every year, it can be overwhelming or even intimidating to try a CBD product from a company that’s new to you. I personally love experimenting on myself with new CBD companies. In fact, I had the opportunity to try several products from the well-known NanoCraft CBD brand, and the results… well let’s just say… WHOA!
But first, let's do a quick recap of what CBD is.
Nanocraft Company Scorecard
What is CBD?
In short, CBD stands for Cannabidiol –– the second most apparent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. THC (Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the first cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, is more popularly known for its psychoactive effects –– it will definitely get you “high” (1).
CBD, on the other hand, has gained popularity in reducing stages of anxiety, and even countering the psychoactive effects of THC. Perhaps what’s most intriguing about CBD is its ability in promoting relaxation, calmness, and for some, a relief from various unwanted symptoms (2).
Scientifically speaking, CBD has shown tremendous promise in relieving a number of symptoms related to digestive issues, mental disorders, and certain sleep issues. All in all, the evidence supporting CBD is continuing to grow and for those still on the CBD fence, it’s worth giving it a try. For my particular issues, CBD has changed my life (3,4,5).
A brief history of Nanocraft CBD
NanoCraft CBD was started by two friends, with the mission to formulate unique, health-promoting CBD products that also help support their NanoCraft Kids program. With their emerging Nano-Technology formulations, they’re also quickly dominating the CBD market in the health fitness, and sports fields (7).
They offer a variety of traditional CBD products, with a few uniquely formulated products infused with organic CBD. However, what sets NanoCraft apart from most other CBD companies is their Nano-Technology –– a delivery system that improves the healing efficiency of a substance, while also reducing any possible harmful reactions or adverse effects. In short, the phyto-cannabinoid rich hemp goes through the nano-emulsion process which allows CBD to be more bioavailable, thus creating a more potent CBD product (8,9).
Are NanoCraft CBD products safe?
While it’s true that new CBD companies and products are popping up everywhere, the source of CBD isn’t always the same. It can be overwhelming to find a CBD company that produces top of the line, quality CBD. Sadly, government regulations are still lacking in the CBD industry. However, quality CBD companies will always provide full transparency of their practices, formulations, ingredients, extractions, etc.
NanoCraft is no different when it comes to transparency. While their headquarters are based in La Jolla California, their hemp is grown in nutrient dense soil in Colorado. They practice 100% organic farming practices that operate under rigorous guidelines to ensure the consistent quality and safety in each product.
NanoCraft not only thoroughly tests each batch in their state-of-the-art cGMP certified laboratory, they also have each batch third-party tested to verify and ensure its quality, complete with a Certificate of Analysis (COA). To date, there have been no failed tests. Each product found on their website displays an up-to-date COA (9).

My NanoCraft CBD experience
In the last two years I’ve experienced a few life-altering health issues: gallbladder removal, a diagnosis of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), and Endometriosis. While it’s true all my health issues were individually discovered, I feel they all correlate some way or another (10,11,12).
As a 31 year-old woman, being told you have an incurable condition like Endometriosis is quite scary. My symptoms include extremely poor digestion, depression, debilitating menstrual cramps, nausea, excessive bloating, fatigue, painful intercourse, insomnia, and infertility. Sadly, I feel these symptoms several times a month.
Unfortunately, the allopathic doctors I encountered for my particular issues only wanted to perform surgeries, and prescribe a handful of drugs such as antibiotics, painkillers, and at times, SSRIs. Personally, I didn’t feel comfortable with this regimen, so I decided to take a more natural route. I drastically changed my already health-conscious diet, I started yoga, relied on natural herbs and supplements, and was introduced to the therapeutic benefits of CBD.
Since my natural journey began, I’ve been very careful in what products I use and what I put into my body, which has led me to my experience with NanoCraft’s CBD products. Before I started on my two-week NanoCraft CBD experiment, I carefully researched the company and was relieved to see that they checked all the boxes on my overly cautious list: organically grown, a list of ingredients per product, thorough in-house testing, third-party testing, and up-to-date COA’s. After I meticulously researched NanoCraft CBD, I felt I had the green light to move forward with my experiment.
My first week on NanoCraft CBD
My first impression upon receiving NanoCraft CBD was a 10 out of 10. Their products are easy to identify and differentiate from one another. The packaging alone looked very professional, sleek, and memorable; I couldn’t wait to get started!
Living with Endometriosis can be debilitating. Usually I don’t take anything for my pain during the day, but I was curious to see how NanoCraft CBD would work for me. So I started a routine of one full dropper of the 750mg Pure Ginger Citrus Formula once every morning. I’m accustomed to consuming bitter CBD oil with no flavor added, so the taste of ginger citrus was refreshing for me. I held the formula under my tongue for a little more than 20 seconds and then swallowed. That first day I felt a small relief from my pain, which was exciting for me.
Nights are usually the worst for me. I struggle with falling and staying asleep, which is a big symptom of hormone imbalance. When it’s really bad, I end up taking melatonin, but I’ve been trying to allow my body to self-regulate and produce its own melatonin while I take CBD. So I was excited to try the 1000mg Full Spectrum CBD Oil Drops, and the 500mg Broad Spectrum CBD Pain Stick right before bed. I started with one full dropper of the Full Spectrum drops and applied the Broad Spectrum pain stick to my lower back and abdomen. The drops had a nice, refreshing cool mint flavor, which made it easier for me to stomach, but the pain stick had a sticky and sweet smell to it. I wasn’t a fan of the stickiness but within 5-10 minutes I felt a cool numbing feeling, which brought some relief to my achy back and stomach. The Full Spectrum drops didn’t help me fall or stay asleep like I hoped they would, but I did notice I felt less panicky at night.
I continued with this routine for the whole week: One dropper of the Pure ginger citrus in the morning, one dropper of the Full Spectrum drops at night, and I ended up applying the Broad Spectrum pain stick three times a day on my lower back and abdomen – morning, afternoon, and night.
At the end of the week, I noticed an improvement in my sleep, digestion, and relief in pain. The Full Spectrum drops didn’t necessarily help me fall asleep, but after a couple of nights I noticed that I was staying asleep for more than 2 hours at a time. The Pure ginger citrus was amazing; it has quickly become my go-to when I start to feel pain during the day. The taste is great too. As for the Broad Spectrum pain stick, I love it! Despite the sticky feeling, I decided that I needed to apply it three times a day, rather than just once at night. It almost has an ICY HOT feel to it. It doesn’t take all my pain away, but it’s perfect for helping me relax and it truly does take the edge off. The stickiness actually goes away once it’s rubbed in.
My second week on NanoCraft CBD
For my second week, I was so pumped to try the 300mg CBD Oil Day Formula and the 300mg CBD Oil Night Formula. I’ve never tried CBD oil combined with a mixture of other herbs and supplements, so I couldn’t wait to get started.
To start the second week off right, I took one full dropper of the Day Formula an hour after I woke up. I have to say, back before I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, I was an avid coffee drinker. I loved my caffeine. However, since my diagnosis, I haven’t had a sip of coffee in almost a year and a half now. So I was curious to see how I would respond to the caffeine in the Day Formula. The cacao mint flavor was great and it felt more like water under my tongue than oil. After a few hours, I can’t say I noticed anything drastic. I didn’t have more energy or focus, but it was only the first day.
That night, I was so excited to try the Night Formula. Anything natural that can help me fall and stay asleep is a godsend to me. The lavender taste was soothing, and again it felt more like water under my tongue than oil. Within 30 minutes to an hour, I felt my eyes get heavy and a calmness took over my body. I fell asleep! That first night I stayed asleep for 4 hours straight (that’s a big deal for me). Typically, I average 1-3 hours of uninterrupted sleep. Once I wake up, I’m fighting to go back to sleep for another 1-2 hours. So I get about 5-6 hours of sleep a night, but it’s not solid. Getting 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep felt amazing. And when I woke up, I was only awake for about 20 minutes and I was fast asleep again for another 3 hours. AMAZING!
Over the next 7 days and nights, my routine was simple: I took one full dropper of the Day Formula in the morning, one full dropper of the Night Formula at night, and I continued with the Broad Spectrum pain stick three times a day. I still didn’t feel much with the Day Formula, but it did help some with the panic and anxiety I often feel in the morning. My pain during the day is still there, but the Broad Spectrum pain stick helps tremendously. Amazingly, the Night Formula has been the ultimate game changer for me. Since the first night, I have been able to sleep up to 6 hours straight, with no interruptions. A true miracle, if I say so myself.
NanoCraft Pros and Cons
While my experience with NanoCraft CBD has been amazing, I think it’s safe to say that there are pros and cons to even the best CBD products.
|NanoCraft CBD Product||Pros||Cons|
|300mg CBD Oil Day Formula||The cacao mint taste makes the Day Formula easy to consume. It contains Broad Spectrum CBD, which has no THC. Contains organic ingredients, and easy to follow instructions. COA is displayed on the website. Feels more like water under the tongue than oil.||It does contain organic caffeine and other ingredients, so please be aware before consuming. I didn’t notice anything drastic when I took it. So I may need a stronger dose.|
|300mg CBD Oil Night Formula||The lavender flavor is soothing. It contains Broad Spectrum CBD, which has no THC. It’s easy to consume and instructions are easy to follow.

Leaves the skin feeling smooth once its rubbed in. Helps take the edge off within 15-30 minutes.||It has a sweet, odd smell to it. Before it’s rubbed in, it’s sticky.|
My Final Thoughts
Over the last two weeks I honestly have to say I felt less anxious and panicky, slept better, and had some relief from my pain. I definitely enjoyed the flavors of each tincture I tried. As I mentioned before, I’m used to consuming bitter CBD with no flavors added, so the flavors were quite refreshing. I love the concept of the Day Formula, and I may have to increase my dose to see if I notice a difference. As for the Night Formula, I now have a new favorite CBD product that I will be purchasing to help me sleep.
It’s amazing what one night filled with deep sleep will do for you mentally, physically, and emotionally. One of the most common complaints from people around the world is lack of sleep. For someone who’s battled with sleep issues for the last 2 years, I highly recommend the 300mg CBD Oil Night Formula. For anyone interested in NanoCraft CBD, all I can say is give them a try. They are definitely a reputable and transparent CBD company, and their products are some of the best I’ve tried.
