The first time I really remember seeing CBD oil being sold or incorporated into food & drinks was at a coffee shop here in Brooklyn. Swallow Café was one of my original hangouts shortly after moving to the city, and on their chalkboard outside, they were always advertising coffee with CBD.
That’s when I started looking into what exactly CBD is, and what it could do for me. In the past few years, CBD products have started to show up everywhere. I’ve been interested in health and wellness for a while, but honestly, the whole industry is seemingly designed to confuse us with buzzwords and pretty marketing.
So, my interest in CBD products was a bit slow. Other cannabis products were never really a part of my life, so CBD which comes from the same plant, just never seemed very attractive to me.
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a naturally occurring compound from cannabis plants, mostly hemp plants. CBD is not psychoactive and totally separate from marijuana, which is less often legal. CBD-infused products are generally considered to help relieve a number of issues including anxiety, muscle pain, inflammatory issues, and other minor health problems. Generally speaking, it just makes you feel more relaxed and chill, without the high caused by drugs like marijuana.
I started to get most interested in CBD last winter, when I was dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress. While the medical benefits from CBD-infused products are still a bit nebulous, I was a bit lost when looking for something to take. Riddled with that eternal “paradox of choice,” I just didn’t know what to buy, where to buy it, or what it would do.
I started trying CBD oil in my coffee at different Brooklyn cafés. That was a start. And then I discovered Vitafusion CBD gummies. I was already buying Vitafusion melatonin gummies to help with my sleep, and eventually I started to see the Vitafusion CBD gummies on the pharmacy shelves.
Vitafusion started producing CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Extract gummies as part of their collection of popular gummy vitamins. The gummies are made with natural fruit flavors, no synthetic FD&C dyes, and do not include any artificial sweeteners, high-fructose corn syrup, gluten, or dairy. As a trusted gummy vitamin brand, they are able to manufacture and produce CBD gummies in a way that helps to ensure the identity, purity, quality, strength, and composition of the gummies.
Vitafusion produces three different types of CBD gummies. I started using the Full Spectrum ones (with 5mg CBD per gummy) daily over the winter. I found the mixed berry flavor easy to enjoy and would take the max amount recommended because I did really feel like it helped with some of my anxiety issues.
I also tried the Vitafusion CBD Chill Mood gummies, which are meant to be stronger (10mg CBD per gummy with L-Theanine to support stress). These CBD gummies definitely helped improve my mood, but the taste and texture of the gummy wasn’t quite as good.
The hemp used to create Vitafusion’s CBD gummies come from within the USA. It should be noted that some states in America still consider CBD-products illegal, even when there are no psychoactive chemicals in the products. So traveling domestically with them can potentially cause issues.
Ever since I started taking CBD gummies every day, I started to help balance my mood. Dealing with some tough times and a lot of extra anxiety and stress, I found them really helpful and now I still take them daily.
