Fire Wholesale 15 Gummy Pack 450mg Total MG.

I usually prefer not to review edibles because you can’t trust the label except from a small amount of brands but I chose this brand because it’s been magical.  My wholesaler gave me advice to try this brand based on the public feedback from some of his retail customers.

Normally, as you may have seen, I buy and review high high milligram CBD products but in this case, 30mg per gummy of high quality CBD oil (not isolate) had me sleeping amazingly for 2 weeks now.

Not only am I sleeping my goal of 7 hours but I’m dreaming such vivid lucid-like dreams.  Yes, I still take valerian root every night but half as much as I used to.  I tried 2 gummies the first night and woke up over 8 hours later without a single wakeup during the middle of the night.  So the next night I took 1 30mg gummy and slept my goal to the minute almost.  I very subtly fell asleep but when I woke up I realized that I was in the same position as when I fell asleep.  No tossing and turning trying to get to sleep, just pure sleep.

I tried one during the day this week after I fell on the ice because it works so well on my neck that during the day it didn’t knock me out. I was able to work through the pain as the pain was diminished by the gummy.

My cost on this item was 14 dollars USD so you can expect to pay anywhere from 15 to 30 dollars for a pack of 15 gummies.  If taken once a night you will only need to buy two packages a month to get great sleep plus all the other benefits CBD offers you.

Great brand for full spectrum high dose CBD gummies. 450mg in 14 gummies at my cost which was 8 bucks from my wholesaler. After a week I can say they work faster and better than tinctures but slower than vaping high dose full spectrum CBD. The normal price of this product is probably between 15 and 30 dollars. For most people, half of a gummie is sufficient at night. For my insomnia, I take 1 tincture. 2 gummies, constant vaping until I pass out asleep, 8 valerian capsules and 3 magnesium pills. I think that's enough to knock a 300lber asleep for 2 days. I'm lucky to get 6 hours. .. .. #cbd#cbdoil#vapecbd#fullspectrumcbd#cbdgummies#smokecbd#cbdflower#valerian#magnesium#canazil#fullspectrumelitecbd#cbdblogger#nothc#justcbd

Vapable CBD Oil Review: Spectrum Elite 1500mg Full Spectrum Oil

First of all, I accidentally found this product at my local CBD wholesalers warehouse because I pointed at the product in front of it and he thought I was pointing at this and took this out instead.  With it, he showed me the lab results as he usually does.  I said “No, I meant the one over there” then he said “No, you should try this, it’s new and my client’s can’t get enough of it”.

Funny that I hadn’t seen it before because it’s from the same showcase I get my other full spectrum products (gummies, vaping oil, regular tinctures, etc). I looked at the lab results and was pleasantly surprised at the amount of cannabinoids and terpenes were in this simple never-heard-of product.  It came, at least he carried, in 500, 750, 1000 and 1500mg strengths with about a 70-80% purity per this particular batch.  I liked that they ran lab results on a per-batch basis as any decent company should do.

So I went with the 1500mg as my neck problem requires a higher dose than others.  For someone trying to put a squash on anxiety, depression or minor pains, try something between 750mg and 1000mg and not only will it last you longer but the results will blow you away almost instantly.

I buy different CBD products for different problems and times of the day.  I wake up with CBD to kick off the pain relief, i take it at night to cut down the painsomnia and insomnia in general.  A normal dose of CBD would destress you but keep you up, a slightly more than normal dose has the opposite effects on sleep and would knock you out soundly.  I haven’t slept this well in a long time.  Not only is my sleep restful and I wake up feeling more innervated, but my pain is less because I can sleep in more comfortable positions, positions that would normally hurt during the night.

In terms of stress and anxiety, 3 puffs on my vaporizer of this stuff and I’m golden.  Especially if extremely stressed at work I would just run outside and take 3 quick puffs and back in I go with the same work load but far less stress and anxiety.

I don’t have night sweats anymore from nighttime anxiety and feel more comfortable sleeping versus the usual feelings of having anxiety because I’m about to do something that brings me anxiety; sleep due to my 15+ year insomnia.

I don’t know where on the web you could find this product, look up “Spectrum Elite Vapable CBD Oil” on Google and I’m sure you’ll find it.  Here is the product image:

 

Usual price at the wholesaler for me is 45-50 dollars depending on strength.  $45 for the 1000mg and $50 for 1500mg but it might cost the average non wholesaler more but I can’t see it being above 80-100 dollars but keep in mind, if they ask for that price, not only is it worth it but its FULL SPECTRUM CBD oil, not isolate, not just CBD but every cannabinoid and terpene possible.  This is what gives your endocannabinoid system the entourage effect which is how it works best. Total grade for this product out of a 10: 9.5

The .5 is because of the awesome price.

I checked and the manufacturer has no website to checkout their product yet.  I went there and the index page is missing so they are obviously working on a product and information page.

Happy Vaping!

10 Tips for Better Sleep with CBD

It is official: The center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared sleep to be a “public health epidemic”. A recent survey by Consumer Reports found that over two thirds of people struggle to enjoy a good night’s sleep at least once each week. Even worse, roughly 30% of respondents reported difficulty falling or staying asleep the majority of each week. If you are among the growing number of Americans who battle sleep problems, do not despair. There are many simple measures you can take to rest more soundly. Below are ten tips to help you get a good night’s sleep.

CBD for Sleep: Get a Better Night’s Rest with These 10 Tips

1) Establish a nightly routine

A relaxing, routine activity right before bedtime conducted away from bright lights helps separate your sleep time from activities that can cause excitement, stress or anxiety which can make it more difficult to fall asleep, get sound and deep sleep or remain asleep.”

The National Sleep Foundation

Establishing a regular nightly bedtime routine is one of the best ways to help you fall asleep and stay asleep. By resolving to stick to the same schedule and routine each night – even on the weekends – you can help to regulate your body’s clock and feel sleepy faster.

2) Invest in a comfortable mattress and bedding

Mattresses and pillows are not designed to last forever. They are manufactured with a specific life expectancy and it is up to you as a consumer to periodically replace worn or aging mattresses and pillows. Most mattresses are designed to last approximately 7 to 10 years, though some brands are constructed to last longer. In general, the mattresses that are the longest lasting and most durable are manufactured with latex or memory foam.

3) Turn down your thermostat

“The ideal sleeping temperature falls anywhere between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit, and as you sleep your body temperature lowers naturally. Introducing your body to a cooler environment helps stimulate sleep and allows you to cycle naturally though the sleep stages.”

Frank Apodaca, The Sleep Judge

Creating a cooler environment is one of the best ways to promote sound sleep. Experts recommend that you keep your thermostat between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit to help your body progress through each key stage of sleep. In addition to enjoying a better night of sleep, you can also enjoy significant cost savings on your utilities.

4) Eat sleep-inducing foods

Dietary changes can have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep. Foods that include tryptophan, potassium, and carbohydrates are typically good choices – especially if you are seeking a pre-bedtime snack. Here is a short list of foods that can help you enjoy better sleep:

  • Turkey
  • Bananas
  • Kiwi
  • Yogurt
  • Hummus
  • Almonds
  • Milk
  • Figs

“Figs pack potassium, magnesium, calcium, and iron. These minerals help with blood flow and muscle contraction, which are key for falling asleep.”

Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, Nutrition Director at the Good Housekeeping Institute

5) Limit your use of caffeine before bed

Sometimes the foods you do not consume are just as important as those you do consume. Caffeine is a powerful stimulant found in coffee, soft drinks, and iced tea. Consuming caffeine prior to bedtime can leave you wide awake right around the time you should be winding down for the evening. Additionally, caffeine stimulates bladder activity, which can interrupt an otherwise peaceful night’s sleep with repeated trips to the bathroom. If you are searching for a sleep-inducing beverage before bedtime, consider an herbal tea or a glass of warm milk.

6) Introduce CBD to your evening routine

Researchers have found that CBD helps to improve sleep quality and reduce insomnia. Specifically, supplementing the endocannabinoid system helps regulate sleep stability and promotes overall health. There are many types of CBD supplements, including hemp oil, CBD topicals, capsules, and vapes. One of the best CBD products to consume before bed is CBD Gummies, which offer just the right combination of sweetness and sleep-inducing CBD. Available in convenient 30-count bottles, CBD Gummies offer a tasty way to help you drift off to sleep.

7) Invest in a sound machine

A sound machine can help mask noise disruption and create a calm, soothing environment. Most sound machines offer you a variety of peaceful sounds that can help you peacefully drift off to sleep after a long day of activity. Popular sound choices include rainfall, white noise, ocean waves, and rainforest activity. Sound machines are available in stationary and portable models, and are growing in popularity among frequent travelers who battle sleep deprivation on a regular basis.

8) Resist the urge to take a long nap

“A short nap is usually recommended (20-30 minutes) for short-term alertness. This type of nap provides significant benefit for improved alertness and performance without leaving you feeling groggy or interfering with nighttime sleep.”

The Sleep Foundation

While a 15-minute power nap might not interfere with a sound night’s sleep, naps that last an hour or longer can hinder your sleep routine and your ability to fall asleep quickly at night. If you are overcome by sleepiness during the middle of the day, do your best not to nap for longer than 30 minutes.

9) Avoid self-medicating

Some people attempt to regulate their sleep by depending on sleeping pills, alcohol, or other substances. While it can be tempting to try to combat insomnia with a pill or a few of your favorite cocktails, you may end up doing more harm than good to your sleeping routine. In addition to fostering substance dependence, self-medicating may end up complicating your sleeping habits and can prove to be dangerous.

10) Know when to seek professional help

While most people will be able to improve their sleep quality by following the tips above, some situations require the guidance of a medical professional. If you are unable to improve your sleep in spite of making adjustments to your daily life, you may wish to discuss your situation with your primary care provider or a sleep specialist. A trained professional will be able to evaluate your health and sleep habits and provide professional recommendations to help you sleep better.

The Bottom Line About CBD for Sleep

Enjoying a good night’s sleep is not as easy as it sounds for some people. Fortunately, there are many measures you can take to improve the duration and quality of your sleep. By following the tips above, you can prime minimize distractions and prime your body for a peaceful night of rest.

The New Year To Come

Well this year has been topsy turvey. I’ve had so many bad days compared to good days that it makes me think the course of treatment I’m on is not ideal. Just treating the pain with narcotics is only a temporary stop gap towards what I’m heading to in the future.

While the procedures I get do offer long term relief from the extreme pain I used to suffer from, my flare periods have increased. This last year we tried epidurals for the first time to no avail and the right side ablation has worn off after working for about a year and 4 months. That’s not bad for a single procedure. My pain management center has now limited you to 6 steroid injection sessions per year due to how steroids eats away at the vertebrae but that doesn’t include the deep steroid procedures such as fact blocks which last for about 4-6 months.

The beginning of this new year I’m going for a consultation on an implantable spinal stimulator which uses electrical impulses to interfere with that areas ability to send pain signals to the brain. It works all over the back but they have started to use it on the cervical spine in the last few years successfully for people with cervical spondylosis and degenerative disc disease. It’s a small implantable unit they bury into your shoulder and then run lead wired into the nerve root locations at each location of the cervical spine. The first procedure is a temporary unit which you have access to so you can tune the strength, width and frequency to what works for you the best. Once you find that butter zone, they use those settings on the permanent device but those settings can be changed easily as well. So I look forward to that and finally be rid of the fentanyl patch.

Last Friday, to break a 2 month flare, I had 12 steroid injections as part of an occipital nerve block to relax the top of the cervical spine so the rest of it can begin to relax and started an anti spasmodic medication while tapering off of the gabapentin since that drug does nothing for me.

The inflammation of the neck is putting undo pressure on my vagus nerve slowing down my heart rate. At night it drops as low as 41bpm at it’s absolute lowest so I was given Wellbutrin to stimulate my system and medically increase my heart rate. I ended the year in and out of my cardiologist’s office for an echo an EKG and a 2 week halter monitor which confirmed the bradycardia but showed no cardiac problems.

I have to go in for another sleep study as the neck may have created an apnea-like symptom when I sleep which also explains the slow heart rate at night. Mind you the slow rate is only when I sleep so in essence I end up taking a stimulating drug right before I get ready for sleep. Real smart for someone like me who already has a sleep disorder. I’m not worried at all about any of this, I’m just waiting for my chiropractor to return from his vacation so I can get some alignment back in the middle to lower neck and squash this long flare.

Besides all that, I’ve switched partnerships from one CBD company to another. We are no longer partnered with green roads world as their product is stepped on and have carefully chosen The CBDDISTILLERY who is the grower and seller whose lab reports are so pure and contain more terpenes and cannabinoids compared to so many other names in the market. I started using their product a few months ago before starting to sell them to make sure it was worth it and trust me, it’s worth it. I will be changing all the CBD ads on the site to them tomorrow and wipe my hands of green roads.

In other news, I got a Microsoft surface book 2 with a 15″ screen and the highest model you could get as a present and Photoshop CC loads in 5 seconds which is remarkable. I can’t wait to start editing on it in my lap like I used to do with my surface pro 4.

Onyx is doing great and her Spidey senses the last 2 months have been spot on as she’s been sleeping by my head every night during this long flare. Her purring is like a massage pillow it’s so powerful.

My New year’s resolutions are to be more accepting of ignorant people as in ignoring them rather then arguing logic into their heads. I promise to get out more and with a new girlfriend that hasn’t been an issue for a while now. Judge less and accept more.

I wish everyone a happy New year and hope it brings positivity and strength to you all. Don’t harp on the negative instead look to the next day as being better than the previous.

Namaste.
