Week two proved to be a slightly more positive experience with my Hemp Fusion supplements, as I noticed a slight increase in my energy levels once I upped my dosage to two pills a day.
Taking Pinckney’s advice, I decided to add CBD into my routine slowly and cautiously through supplements first — especially since I am used to taking a multivitamin regularly.
Before we write off CBD as just another annoying health trend, it’s safe to say that the buzzworthy ingredient may hang around for quite a while, as NASDAQ reported last year that CBD sales in the United States will top $2.1 billion within the next two years. It has also become a more frequent ingredient in the kitchen.
Week 1: CBD Supplement
Cwanza Pinckney, MD, an emergency-room doctor, explains that CBD is short for cannabidiol, the second most common cannabinoid in the cannabis plant after THC. CBD is not psychoactive, but it can give you a sense of relaxation — mentally and physically.
Choosing your CBD product can be tricky, as Pinckney suggests that not all CBD products are created equal. CBD products, she says, vary greatly depending on whether the product is hemp- or cannabis-based, and on the strength of the product in question. But if you are pretty new to the whole CBD shindig and don’t know exactly where to begin, Pinckney recommends starting off low and slow and carefully building your daily CBD dosage over time.
CBD, Pinckney says, can come from marijuana or hemp, and is allegedly used to treat a variety of ailments including seizures, pain, inflammation, abdominal pain, and neurological disorders, without being psychoactive. These benefits, however, aren’t exactly proven to be 100 percent true by medical professionals, making it something to keep in mind if you are indeed thinking about giving CBD a try.
This also seemed to have a slightly more positive effect on my mood too, as I was satisfied with the number of things I was able to get done in a day, making me a somewhat happier individual that week. However, this, of course, could be the result of a placebo effect, as believing my supplements would work may have actually been the reason why they were “working” to begin with. Whatever the case, I was pretty pleased with how well the supplements fit into my daily routine without disrupting my work duties and performance at the gym.

Here is just some of what the current evidence says.

Common symptoms include:
CBD oil comes as full-spectrum oils or in forms that contain CBD isolates. Unlike isolates, which contain CBD only, full-spectrum oils contain a variety of compounds found naturally in the cannabis plant, including proteins, flavonoids, terpenes, and chlorophyll. Alternative practitioners believe these compounds offer more substantial health benefits, although there is no clear evidence of this.
For this study, nine healthy men took either 600 mg of CBD or the same dose of a placebo. According to the researcher, those treated with CBD had lower blood pressure before and after exposure to stressful stimuli (including exercise or extreme cold).
