It seems a huge trend in 2018 has been the widespread use of medical and recreational CBD products. I don’t know about you guys, but I know I have definitely noticed the wave of CBD companies taking over. Whether it’s on social media, doctors offices, or billboards (yes I’ve even seen a billboard) this stuff is taking the supplement industry by storm.
I’ll be honest, at first I was a bit of a skeptic myself. After all, it is still fairly new and just for the sole reason that it is related to the cannabis plant, it raises a few flags for some. What most people know about CBD is that it doesn’t get you “high” so that leads most people to asking “then what DOES it do?”
I had the same question so I did some research. For anyone who’s new to this, like I was, here are some of the most basic facts about CBD that you should know before adding it to your regime. We’ll keep it simple because this stuff gets super complex and can get confusing! I’ll save the scientific molecular explanation of it all for another time. (not)
After doing my own research, I felt more comfortable bringing these natural products into my routine. Like anything else, I always encourage my audience to do your due diligence and look further into any products that you would consider for yourself or loved ones!
I wanted to check out CBD products for myself so I partnered up with Medsbiotech CBD to check out what all the hype was about.
They sent over their best CBD gummies and I was SUPER curious to try them out. I hadn’t tried any CBD edibles before so, to be honest I was just slightly hesitant at first. The dosage amount recommends taking between one to two gummies within a 6 hour time period. Not knowing how it would affect me, I figured I would try it before bed to see if it helped me get good nights sleep. I took just one before bed. I was expecting the gummies to taste a little off, maybe slightly bitter, or have some sort of cannabis smell to them, but to my surprise, it tasted like a totally normal gummy bear. I really don’t know how they do it.
I was hoping for a good night's sleep and let me tell you, I was out like a light. I slept all through the night, not waking up once. It was the deep sleep I was looking for. The best part is that, unlike Nyquil or other sleeping pills, there was no grogginess when I woke up. I felt just as fresh and awake as any other morning. If you have ever taken melatonin, I would compare it to that, but better. Since trying it, I have taken it multiple times before bed to help me a get a good sleep.
I’m really looking forward to using the gummies for my next flight somewhere. In the last 6 months or so, I have developed some major flight anxiety after experiencing pretty brutal turbulence on a previous flight. It was so bad that it traumatized me a bit. Every flight since has been a struggle to keep my cool and not have a panic attack when going through turbulence.
This is a new experience for me, as I haven’t ever dealt with anxiety in the past. I plan on taking the gummies before my next flight, and I am really looking forward to the relief I think they will bring me. The best part of it is that the CBD gummies are a natural anti-anxiety alternative, compared to a synthetic drug made in a lab like Xanax or Valium. I was never into prescription medication to start, even drugs as simple as antibiotics. I will always try natural remedies before pharmaceuticals so the gummies are a perfect alternative for me. The 400mg gummy bears that I received are $59.99 on the Medsbiotech website. When compared to the vitamins and supplements you can find at any natural supplement store, these are an equal comparison.
