I tried CBD oil and CBD gummies for the first time in June 2019. The very first encounter with CBD was when I went to an actual CBD store front in Decatur, Georgia it was called Blue Ocean. I was coming from Publix supermarket and spotted the CBD store across the street. I was very intrigued and so was my Mom so we took a day to visit the store and see what this CBD hype was all about.
A couple days later we go to the CBD store front and the clerk was very knowledgeable and told us about the different oils, gummies and vapes they had available she actually showed us what she used in combination (oil, vape and gummies). I had a sample of the CBD oil in water and it tasted like infused fruit water and was taken like a shot in a small plastic shot glass.
I ended up getting some gummies by Evolution CBD the grapefruit flavor. The whole bag was 250 mg (10 square gummies 25 mgs per gummy) I cut them in half but still ended up taking a whole gummy which I would find out was way too much for me as a first time CBD user.
On top of the whole gummy I took I also had that sample when I went to the CBD store and then I tried my Mom’s drops under my tongue. When I got home I fell asleep for about (4) straight hours. That was too much for a beginner at CBD I thought it was great to be able to calm down and get some sleep.
I really liked the gummies alot so I went online to find the best reviewed CBD gummies and I ran across Just CBD gummies. I bought a jar of Sour Worm CBD gummies online. The jar had approximately (40) gummies 13 mgs each. The whole jar was 500 mg. Now those got me into trouble. I took it over the cliff and I was taking CBD gummies from the time I woke up, through the day, and at night.
I actually started to lose days and started to use it more like a relaxer or a sedative to go to sleep. I wasn’t getting my usual workload done which wasn’t productive. So I had to back up and do some research and I saw that I should have took more like one fourth of what I was taking. I was doing 40-50 mgs a day and I should have been doing more like 4-10 mgs to start.
Lately I’ve been taking it easy and not indulging in CBD gummies. It was a good experience and will still take CBD oil and CBD gummies for recreational purposes. I do recommend them because there is no way you can get high using them. There is barely any THC in them so you can drive and go to work and perform daily activities. Some people even take them while at work just don’t over do it or you will get drowsy.
Using it in green and black tea has been one of my favorite ways to use my Pure Kana Vanilla CBD oil. The vanilla makes the tea taste amazing and it’s a great warm drink before you go to sleep.
Here is a funny storytime video of my experience with CBD oil and gummies:
I do recommend CBD products but like anything else use with caution and be responsible. In the state of Georgia you have to be (18) or older to use and purchase CBD products. I’m now only using CBD for recreational and relaxation purposes.
