As we continue to embark on this journey of health and wellness, many of us turn to cannabinoids other than just THC. This is where a whole slew of other cannabinoids come in like CBD, CBN and CBG. Two companies that are shining a bright light on this space are the nationally-known brands Wyld and Smokiez. While both companies are rooted in the Pacific Northwest, they’ve since grown into several states across the country – making it easier than ever for patients and recreational users of the plant to explore different cannabinoids and how they could potentially fit into one’s lifestyle.
Good sleep is essential to living a healthy life, and CBN has come out as the top cannabinoid for helping people reach the state they desire. Personally, I’ve taken CBN before bed and noticed that I fell asleep sooner, stayed asleep longer, and had minimal grogginess the following morning. When taken with CBG, a cannabinoid that increases the production of a chemical called GABA, my anxiety was calm enough to improve the effects of the CBN. There are tons of other proposed effects of CBG – including the improvement of digestive health and acting as a neuroprotectant. And when it comes to CBD, what can I say? It’s essential to the stoner’s stash, and a cornerstone of a robust Cannabis diet.
When checking out Wyld’s offerings, their wide selection of seven different gummies alongside six flavors of sparkling water makes for endless cannabinoid combinations. Gummies come in lemon, blackberry, raspberry, huckleberry, peach, pear and elderberry, with varying ratios of CBD, CBG, CBC and CBN. Their grapefruit sparkling water is one of my personal favorites, but the lemon, blood orange, blackberry and raspberry are all refreshing in their own unique way. And don’t sleep on the blueberry pomegranate CBN formulation … it’s a great pre-bedtime bubbly that Wyld says is “like watching a sheep count you.”
Next we find Smokiez bringing the heat with CBD, CBG and CBN variations of their gummies. They have 16 flavors currently available including blue raspberry, sour green apple, and way too many more to keep this list going. With 12 flavors of their 2.5:1 ratio CBD:CBN gummies, they are sure to have a flavor for everyone. These come in packs of 10 and 30, totaling 250-750mg of CBD and 100-300mg of CBN per package. The CBG gummies come in 12 flavors as well, with the same variation of potency as the CBN.
It goes without saying that everyone’s consumption methods are a little bit different, but I urge you to go out and try some other cannabinoids besides THC in the new year. The risk level is extremely low with these non-psychoactive cannabinoids – and they come with the potential benefit of increased health and wellness. Let’s be honest: Humans eat and drink things we know are toxic all the time. With brands like Wyld and Smokiez available, why not treat your tastebuds to a delicious product that might actually make you feel better?
