In the past few months, it seems like everyone is talking about CBD and the legalization of marijuana.  As a person who puts fact above opinion, I wanted to know if there was any truth to all of the hype.  In order to find out if CBD had any validity to it, I started to research all of the CDB brands and manufacturers. Let’s start by saying, there A LOT of them.  I ran into a lot of information and I will spare you the details, but I am going to share how I made a decision on what product to try. I first looked at the companies that are CERTIFIED by the US Hemp Authority. These 14 companies are considered to be the best in the industry due to their growing, processing and manufacturing standards and practices. 

I then narrowed down the companies by the mission, the quality, price and diversity of product, and the ethical stance of the standards held within the processing practices. The company that stood out most to me was HempWorx, specifically for these reasons: 

The obvious next step was to order the product, so I purchased the 500mg Full Spectrum Oil and used it for 21 days. With Hempworx you have the choice to purchase an isolate, but I wanted to get the full spectrum of cannabinoids.  Here are the differences between full spectrum and isolate: 

This is what I felt and saw during and after the 21 days and a week after not taking the oil: 

During/After the 21 Days: 

  1. Less Stress: Dealing with physical and emotional stress was much easier. 
  2. Very Deep Sleep: I had the most restful sleep since becoming a parent.  
  3. Mental Clarity: I was able to focus on work tasks with ease. 
  4. Less Joint Pain: Working out became easier due to less pain in my hip.  
  5. Improved Recovery: Muscle soreness decreased faster following workouts.  

After 7 days of not taking the oil: 

  1. Decreased sleep quality (This was the biggest effect I saw). 
  2. Decrease tolerance of daily stressors. 
  3. Brain Fog and decreased focus. 
  4. Noticeable hip and joint pain. 
  5. Increased/prolonged soreness following training. 

Here is a list of all of the issues CDB can help support: 

After my month experiment here are my conclusions: 

  1. HempWorx CDB is the ultimate adaptogen. It helps your body deal with your biggest stressors in your life. I’ve taken many different adaptogens in my life and this takes the cake. 
  2. I felt like I could do more and get more tasks done throughout the day. The mental clarity and focus were the best I had in years.  
  3. Sleeping was great. I never woke up in the middle of the night and I was ready to take on the day at 5:30 in the morning!  CBD promote a restful mind and body. 
  4. CDB is an exercise enthusiast’s best friend. It steps up your game in the gym and on the field.
