CBD Edibles Review
This week, we are covering all those delicious and healthy edibles that so many of our customers have come to cherish. I have no doubt that, needing to take your daily CBD, or looking for a quick treat that adds some extra CBD to your day, you’ve tried one of our many edible CBD products. If you haven’t that’s okay too! No worries, we are here to help you figure out which edible would best fit your needs and budget. If you’re reluctant to spend a bunch of money on different edibles in the process of figuring out which best fits your taste buds we have tried to make it easy for you. Each of us at Green wellness chose a product to test over the last month, so that you could read our reviews and decide which suits your fancy!
Panacea F.A.S.T. Tabs Review
Hannah chose to sample our Panacea F.A.S.T. Tabs:
When I thought of the word “edible,” mints did not come to my mind. Nonetheless, the Panacea F.A.S.T. Tabs are now my favorite edible that we carry. For those of you who don’t know, I suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, two chronic illnesses that result in a large array of unpleasantries. It is a daily a part of my life to live with pain and I am always looking to find ways to manage that pain, in order to allow me to live a (somewhat) normal life. There are some things that I have added to my arsenal against chronic illness and these little certs are one of those things. Each citrus vanilla flavored tab has 35 mgs of isolate CBD, so they really pack a punch. What makes these F.A.S.T. Tabs so great, however, is that F.A.S.T. stands for “Fast Acting Sublingual Tablet” and when in need of a boost to get through my day I can rely on these. I know all I have to do is place a tab under my tongue and in 15 minutes or so I will find some relief. I know the price tag may seem a bit steep at $75.00 but packing 35 mg per tablet in a 30 count tablet means the total bottle has 1050 mg. If you have not tried these you should give them a shot. They are also helpful with anxiety, restless leg, pain and much more!
Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies Review
Cara chose to cover our Charlotte’s Web CBD Gummies (the Sleep variety):
A good night’s sleep can be so difficult to get for some people. As I get older, I have become one of those people! I have a lot going on and I take CBD for old knee and shoulder injuries, mood stability, anxiety and recently I have started taking a CBD product to help with sleep. One of my new favorites is Charlotte’s Web Sleep gummy. I really like the fact that it is a full spectrum gummy that actually TASTES GOOD. I definitely need all the cannabinoids that are part of the full spectrum for my knee and shoulder pain, so I am excited it is full spectrum. Most gummies are broad spectrum or isolates and are not as helpful for inflammation or pain. The Charlotte’s Web Sleep gummy is also made with real fruits and vegetables for a great flavor. Trust me, decent tasting full spectrum gummies are not easy to find, and I have tasted a few working at Green Wellness LIfe!
Most do not realize that CBD and sleep is really hit or miss but it often does not help you get to sleep. The CW gummies also include 3 mg per gummy of melatonin to help you get to sleep. Once asleep, the Cannabinoids from the hemp plant help me to stay asleep. Each gummy has 5 mg of cannabinoids from hemp and comes in a 60 count container for $44.99. I recommend two gummies nightly as a serving size but you can try one a night if you are taking another CBD product like myself. We recommend starting with a minimum serving size of 10 mg daily for 5 to 7 days and then increase accordingly. All in all, I love the sleep gummy. The cost is not effective for me to only take Charlotte’s Web so I also take a full spectrum tincture for my other needs, but I do love it for sleep and recommend it often to others who are looking for a full spectrum gummy. In my opinion, it is the best full spectrum gummy on the market.
Colorado Hemp Honey Review
David (and his sweet tooth) chose to cover Colorado Hemp Honey:
I will openly admit that I have a child’s palate when it comes to food and beverages. I’ve never been able to acquire a taste for bitter things like coffee, beer, or cabbage. I naturally gravitate to things that are sweet. It is for this reason that Colorado Hemp Honey Jars were the first CBD product I fell in love with. The honey is incredibly sweet and the flavor is also so strong that it helps to hide the raw, earthy flavor of hemp (if that’s something you don’t like or think you wouldn’t like). Honey is very versatile in use, which allows me to mix CBD into different foods and beverages. I add Colorado Hemp Honey to my smoothies, tea, salad dressings, and more. Moreover, Colorado Hemp Honey includes full-spectrum hemp extract to give you all the benefits the hemp plant has to offer. I also love the price at 26.99 a jar for 500 mg you cant beat it! As someone who is often more anxious than the average person (likely a side-effect of being a perfectionist!), I find that the honey helps to provide the calming effects I need to keep me cool and focused during work hours.
Endoca Raw Hemp Protein Powder & Endoca Vitamins & Minerals Powder Review
Brandy opted to cover two products: Endoca Raw Hemp Protein Powder and Endoca Vitamins and Minerals Powder:
We’ve had a great response to our “review” blogs that focus on different product categories. This week’s is a CBD edibles review, so in an ongoing effort to be difficult, I’ve decided to talk about the only non-CBD products in our edibles category, the Endoca Raw Protein and Vitamins & Minerals. Why, you ask? Well, because they’re pretty great.
I’m a woman in my early (let’s focus on the word “early”) 40’s who has always leaned towards being overweight and doesn’t like to meal prep. That’s a recipe for smoothies if ever I’ve heard one. I’ve tried A LOT of proteins in those smoothies and this one from Endoca is absolutely at the top of the heap. It’s just one ingredient, which is fantastic. No soy or dairy (which many of us can be sensitive to) and it contains all of the essential amino acids. All of this and 30g protein/11.5g fiber per teaspoon and the bottle is reasonable at $22.00. Dang. So I pop the protein powder in my smoothie and I also add one scoop of the raw vitamin and mineral powder. It’s packed full of vitamin C and antioxidants. The mineral powder is a bit pricier at $56.00 but it is amazing and packs a punch! I love that it’s a loose powder blend. I’m a little weird about capsules and absolutely will not take a handful of pills to get my vitamins and minerals in. Not happening.
Endoca advertises that both of these supplements work well in hot or cold beverages. I politely disagree. The protein was pretty tasteless, but it left chunks in my coffee. Ew. They also tell you to sprinkle them on your meal. That’s just weird. Trust me – stick with a blended smoothie and you’ll barely notice that all that healthy, organic, goodness is in the cup. Which is just how we like our health foods – doing their job but otherwise unnoticed!
WYLD CBD Gummies Review
And Quinton covered the WYLD CBD Gummies (Raspberry flavor) :
I’ve always been a fan of gummies and treats like gummies. I can still fondly recall childhood days of insisting that we buy the flintstones gummies for our vitamins (and how I later ate them, like candy, much to my parents’ chagrin). So when it came time to choose what CBD edibles we were to review, what did I pick? GUMMIES!
Most of my daily CBD comes in tincture form. It’s easy, quick, and I can do it in the morning. But, for the sake of this review, I put my tincture aside and grabbed a bottle of WYLD. I liked the taste (raspberry being one of my favorite flavors), and with 25mg per gummy (500mg per bottle), I was getting about the same amount of CBD that my daily tincture offered.
Halfway through the bottle, I decided to try an experiment. I had been struggling to get restful sleep for about a week by this time, so I shifted my CBD schedule; I would eat my gummy before bed instead of after waking. Did it work? I’m not a physician, and I had no diagnostic tests done, so I’m unable to say for certain what was happening in my body. This being said, I did notice that both my sleep schedule improved and that I was able to rest properly (unlike before). Was it the CBD? I like to think that it was. It certainly helped with some anxiety. I’ll be ordering another bottle soon at a reasonable price of 34.95 for a whopping 500 mg bottle.
