The Celebrity-Cosign: Martha Stewart CBD Wellness Gummies

I am a longtime Martha Stewart stan. I’ve wanted to try her gummies since the moment I heard of them—and really wanted to try them when I read that she pops 10 a day. At least, that’s what I’d remembered; the actual number turns out to be 20, which I’m glad to have only realized just now. Between Martha’s laxity and my apparent imperviousness to CBD, I approached them casually—like a snack to tide me over when I realize I’ve barely eaten at 5 p.m. Just like with normal candy, I loved the lemon ones and hated the grapes. And for all intents and purposes, they were candy; I had five and continued about my workday.

What are your current stress/body pain levels? How’s your sleep? Do you anticipate CBD gummies helping with these ailments?

In the past, I’ve also used CBD for period cramps and muscle pains (topical), and that has been helpful in minimizing discomfort. I like to pair my CBD use for anxiety with talk therapy, meditation, and diaphragmatic breathing—it’s a multi-faceted, holistic approach to battle.

What are your current stress/body pain levels? How’s your sleep? Do you anticipate CBD gummies helping with these ailments?

This was my #1 favorite gummy of the bunch for taste and texture. The Prickly Pear is delicious, and has such a bright flavor and smooth texture (it was hard not to eat the entire package in one sitting). I felt these gummies had the most noticeable effect on me, I took one during the day and then one at night and was blissed TF out. The gold foil against the green and pink shades of the packaging, coupled with the regal logo, felt luxe. I definitely will continue to use these gummies regularly.

Posited for the “modern mom,” (which for full disclosure, no one in this trial is), Molly Jones is a small-batch, broad spectrum CBD gummy out of California that focuses on pain and stress relief. They offer a variety of flavors as well as a “low dose” version, which is 20mg per gummy, and “high dose” version, which is 50mg per gummy, for each product and a percentage of their proceeds also goes to the Last Prisoner Project and Norml.org.

The other key difference: While the tincture contains five ingredients (CBD, grapeseed oil, hemp seed oil, stevia, and either peppermint or lemon oil for flavor), the Royal Oil contains just two: CBD and grapeseed oil. It’s truly a CBD product for the CBD enthusiast.

Marketed for “CBD purists,” Royal Oil is the company’s most concentrated CBD offering to date. (It’s also the highest-concentrated CBD product available at Sephora.) Each bottle contains 1,000 milligrams of CBD, which means one full dropper contains 40 milligrams. This makes it about four times more potent than Lord Jones’ CBD tincture.

The royal experience

As with Lord Jones’ CBD tinctures, which I’d used and liked previously, taking a full dropper of Royal Oil before bed made me feel a bit more relaxed — if not sleepier, than at least more even. However, I didn’t feel a stronger effect with the oil than I did with the other tinctures. And I had to take a full dropper of the oil to feel any relaxing effects at all. When I took half a dropper, I felt nothing.

If you’re taking the oil orally, Lord Jones recommends holding it under your tongue for a minute before swallowing. If you have sensitive taste buds, this might be an issue — Royal Oil does not taste particularly good. Because it’s only made of grapeseed oil and “broad spectrum CBD,” you’ll feel like you’re drinking cooking oil. (There is a mild cannabis scent, but I didn’t notice it after a while.) But if you’re looking for something unflavored? Royal Oil is your girl.

I’ve been using Lord Jones’ new multi-purpose CBD product, Royal Oil, for the past two weeks. Do I like it? Yes. Do I recommend it? God, I don’t know.

· Biggest benefit: A delicious and sociable way to get the benefits of CBD

CBD consumables are also called CBD edibles and the name says it all. They’re CBD products that you eat or drink. CBD comes from the hemp plant but, unlike THC, there’s no psychoactive effect. In other words, it doesn’t get you high.

All About CBD Cocktails

· How long do you feel the effects for: Just like CBD gummies, digesting CBD instead of taking it as a tincture means your body processes it more slowly. It may take a little longer to feel any effect, but those beneficial effects may last for longer depending on the individual’s metabolism.

· How to take: Drink just like a normal cocktail and enjoy at your own pace

CBD cocktails are CBD beverages that combine classic cocktail flavors like mule or gin and tonic, but minus the vodka or gin. Instead, each cocktail is cleverly infused with hemp extract and terpenes.
