LIVE the Alpha CBD lifestyle...

In 2020, the SA Life Magazine team got to try out a few of the CBD Products on offer at

Alpha CBD. Having used them for a couple of months now, we have discussed, monitored and pleased to share our incredible feedback.

In a story of hope and overcoming a journey of anxiety attacks, Bruce Steyn, CEO and

Founder of Alpha CBD, describes how he basically lost 4 years of his life to anxiety,

depression and suffering the loss of people close to himself. Having been surrounded by the wrong people, created a downward spiral that he struggled daily with. He was then offered a CBD product by a friend, which he declined due to the lack of knowledge of the product and to the fact it increased his anxiety levels to unexplainable amounts. He chose to personally do his own research on the product, and took as much as he could (before the governmental restrictions of 20mg daily limit had been implemented) and he realized that after a period of 60 days usage, that he had decreased the number of anxiety attacks that he would experience in a week from 15-20 to a total of 3 a week. Now they have completely disappeared.

After the initial 60 day period of personal usage, he started to help his loved ones and

people who surrounded him with their depression, anxiety and sleep deprivation, and at

this point, his co-founder, suggested that they look at moving into a national distribution.

The whole drive and Bruce’s “WHY” for developing the products, were centered around

solving your “daily interferences” whilst still maintaining a super active and normal lifestyle.

Let’s chat CBD quickly, WHAT EXACTLY IS CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a type of cannabinoid, a natural chemical compound found in Hemp and cannabis plants, interacts with the endocannabinoid biological system in humans and other mammals. The endocannabinoid system regulates various cognitive and physiological processes – such as mood, sleep, appetite, and pain sensation – in order to promote homeostasis or equilibrium in the body. When introduced into the body, CBD and other cannabinoids assist with regulation and homeostasis, which can help alleviate pain, improve sleep quality, increase appetite and reduce stress.

As a result, CBD may ease symptoms associated with the following conditions:

- Insomnia and other sleep disorders

- Epilepsy

- Nausea

- Anxiety and stress

- Mood disorders

- Chronic pain

Though CBD and THC are among a number of cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, it’s

important to know the difference between them. THC comes from the leaves and flowers of the cannabis species known as marijuana and has long been classified as illegal in many countries due to its psychoactive properties. On the other hand, CBD used by Alpha CBD is extracted from another type of cannabis plant known as hemp. This is because molecular

CBD is the same whether it is sourced from hemp or from marijuana. However, hemp CBD products usually contain low traces (or zero) % THC and has no psychoactive effects. 

This means that products made from Hemp CBD don’t make you high, as well as offer

numerous therapeutic benefits to humans and other mammals.

SA Life Mag’s team recently got their hands on these products and we have to hand it to

Bruce, we’re incredibly impressed and the results speak for themselves!

So, let’s break it down for you…… 

Here are 5 factors that state why we simply ADORE Alpha CBD products:

They’ve developed a product line where they could guarantee a 0% THC level, whilst still

providing a wide spectrum of CBD benefits for anyone looking to live that active lifestyle in a positive manner.

1.They have gone as far as to even consider you fur-kids, and they have developed a product with added benefits for your beloved pets.

We love that their range has a product that has purely been designed with your fur-kids in

mind. After all they are part of the family and as we keep saying that the whole family

benefits from the use of CBD. It is a non-additive and non-toxic supplement for your pets.

This has been approved and is safe to administer to dogs, cats, horses and other mammals.

The added benefits assist but are not limited to the following conditions: joint pain,

inflammation, arthritis, aggression, loss of appetite and even skin allergies. As per any

medication given to your beloved pets, always consult with a qualified veterinarian who is

familiar with cannabinoid therapeutics.

*** Caveat: We were incredibly excited to try this with our furkids. We have 2 older yorkies, one with arthritis and the other with terrible anxiety, especially during thunderstorms. As well as a spaniel with skin allergies, They have all been on the Pet CBD Oil for over 3 months now and the change in their overall wellness is remarkably noticeable. They seem to be more active, have fewer “pained arthritic” days and have been running around as if they are puppies again! Our spaniel and her skin allergies – we finally have that under control, which is such a blessing for her as she loves to go with her sister and explore outdoors all day, It has truly been so beneficial for them and will without a doubt recommend this to every single person who has a pet.

2. Flavour central – and catered for everyone.

Alpha CBD Vanilla Flavour is produced one of SA's purest MCT oils and flavoured to leave you wanting more. Health and Flavour has never gone together this well until now.

The have designed their oils in 3 varieties – from an odourless and tasteless variant, a cherry flavor and even a vanilla ice cream flavour, they cater for everyone. They’re Vegan friendly, Vegetarian Friendly, Gluten Free and 100% natural. Alpha CBD oils contain a perfect balance of essential oils and Hemp CBD. 

3. CBD is a worldwide phenomenon and soon all South Africans will know of its benefits.

Alpha CBD is manufactured in GMP and ISO certified facilities and tested 2 times by industry leaders to give you peace of mind before we are ready to box it. This is our quality guarantee to you, our Alpha's.

Alpha CBD has a perfect concentration of 99% Pure Hemp CBD in each 30ml bottle. Their CBD drops contain a specially formulated balance of Pure Hemp-derived CBD, Organically grown Hemp Seed Oil and MCT Oil. With an easy to use dropper, take half a dropper in the morning and half a dropper in the evening. This gives you 10mg in the morning and 10mg in the evening to ensure you CBD is consistent all day long.

They are 3 rd party lab tested, manufactured in ISO and GMP approved facilities and GMO free.

4. Painfreeze lotion is a MUST-HAVE in every household.

They have developed a pain freeze lotion which is an absolute must-have in every single

household. This product was one of our teams absolute favourite items. Having been

diagnosed with Plantar Fascitis, and suffering daily, unable to do simple things like jump out bed and walk first thing in the morning, this product became part of her morning routine, first thing everyday, application done and within a minute, she felt the relief she needed and allowed her to continue her day in the most productive manner. The “Painfreeze” lotion was designed with "Relief" in mind.

From the moment you apply it you are guaranteed to feel some form of relief. The CBD product penetrates deep into your skin, and will directly access the site of pain distributing “pain receptors” to instantly reduce pain and inflammation.

5. CBD Infused coffee capsules for the win.

Why? Because why not start your day right! It’s been proven that caffeine is synergistic with CBD. When taken together, they both may produce a heightened level of productivity through increased alertness and concentration. They may also slow the breakdown of each other, allowing them to circulate through the body for longer periods of time. And finally, CBD may directly counteract many of the most frustrating side-effects of caffeine — such as anxiousness, jitteriness, shaking, and muscle cramping. We recommend mixing your CBD in with a bulletproof coffee. CBD-infused coffees and CBD coffee capsules are also excellent ways of mixing the two together.

The brand speaks for itself, LIVE THE ALPHA LIFESTYLE, you won’t regret it.
