First, let’s talk about what CBD is.
“CBD stands for cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (marijuana). While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. While CBD is a component of marijuana (one of hundreds), by itself it does not cause a ‘high.'” Source: Harvard Medical
Read that again: CBD BY ITSELF DOES NOT CAUSE A “HIGH”.
I started my CBD journey a few months ago and I was excited when HighQ reached out for me to try their CBD gummies.
I tested a few theories with HighQ CBD gummies and these are my results:
Stress and anxiety is inevitable when you’re a mom. Actually, scratch that. Stress and anxiety is inevitable when you’re an adult. My stress and anxiety can result in headaches/migraines from HELL and anxiety attacks that feel like actual heart attacks.
When I get migraines, I take 2 extra strength Tylenol pills and it definitely takes the edge off but it doesn’t go away fully.
During anxiety attacks, I have to go somewhere and be alone or just go to sleep. Obviously with 5 kids, this isn’t practical.
BRING ON THE GUMMIES.
I tried the gummies 5 different times. 3 times when I had a migraine and 2 times when I was having an anxiety attack. (I didn’t want to report false effects if it was more of a coincidental type situation). I am happy to say the gummies worked ALL 5 TIMES!
My favorite thing about the gummies is they worked instantly (within 10 minutes, maybe not even that long) and they made me feel 100% back to “normal”.
I have 2 problems with sleeping. I have trouble falling asleep and I have trouble staying asleep.
I tried CBD gummies 8 different times to test out my sleep theories.
I will say, if you take a CBD gummie and start cleaning or doing something active, it won’t work at all. If you take the CBD gummie and lay down or sit down and watch Netflix (like me), you will fall asleep within 10 minutes.
I can honestly say that the nights I took a CBD gummie before bed were the best sleeps of my entire life. I stayed asleep throughout the entire night and I was NOT groggy the next morning when I needed to take my kiddos to the bus stop.
If you’ve ever met me, you know I have the worst time concentrating (you don’t even want to know how long it took me to write this blog simply because I got distracted with other things).
I have a Criminal Justice Data Research and Analytics class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I took the CBD gummie right before class on 6 different occasions. I will admit that it did not work as well as adderal or other stimulants people take for ADHD but it worked good enough. I was able to listen to the lectures without day dreaming about random stuff every 2 seconds. Think of it this way- I was day dreaming every 10 minutes instead (which is a huge improvement from every 2 seconds) AND I was able to catch myself daydreaming and pull myself out and get back to work which is also a huge deal.
Although the gummies didn’t help 100%, they did help about 80% and without the side effects of adderal which is 100000000000000000000000% better in my opinion.
I almost didn’t talk about this because, lets face it, it’s embarrassing. I thought of saying I gave the gummies to a friend with low libido and she told me it worked, blah blah blah. But YOLO, I’m all about being real.
I won’t go into the details about my sex life but I will say it these gummies have definitely boosted my libido. I couldn’t tell you the scientific reasoning behind it but I’m guessing its from lowered stressed and better sleep. Who knows. All YOU need to know is, IT HELPS.
Okay, let’s talk about the brand- HighQ
There are thousands and thousands of CBD companies selling CBD products. PLEASE, do your research before purchasing CBD products. If you don’t feel like doing research, I’ve done it for you. HighQ CBD is a company I can personally vouch for.
They are a family owned business located in Colorado. They offer third party testing and full transparency for all their products AND their products have the highest bioavailability on the market.
CBD gummies aren’t the only product HighQ offers. They have tinctures, skin care products, soft gels, and dog treats. FREAKING. DOG. TREATS. How amazing is that?
