The more I learn about CBD products, the more I understand how important it is to only purchase from brands who are reputable and clearly have useful products.
I can’t stress how excited I am for the fact that CBD products will officially be off the World Anti-Doping Agency banned substance list in 2018, because I am positive that CBD will be an incredibly useful asset for athletes all over the world.
However, CBD products are not currently regulated well-enough that you can trust any brand that you find. In fact, it’s hard to trust any brand at all.
Not necessarily because you will get a product which is dangerous for you or your health, but because you won’t be sure that you will get as many benefits from the product as you normally should.
One study recently published on CNN showed that only about 1/3rd of cannabis extract products (CBD for example) are accurately labeled. On the positive side, the article said some of this is because products had more extract in them than labeled. Most however, had less.
This just goes to show that choosing reputable brands in the CBD product world is as, or more, important than with anything else.
Enliven Essentials CBD Products
One company I recently found that I thought had incredible CBD products is Enliven Essentials.
I was fortunate enough to find Enliven Essentials and try their CBD products, and am I ever happy that I did!
I tried 4 different Enliven Essentials hemp products, and they were all excellent in my opinion!
Hemp Extract Relief Gel Capsules
It is impossible for me to say which product is my favorite because they are all useful in their own type of way, but the relief gel capsules certainly made a significant impact on me.
I’ve tried other hemp extract CBD products which I can say I did not feel anything from, but taking just 1 of these capsules with my morning coffee and 1 before bed made a significant difference with how I felt each day when drinking them.
Currently I can easily judge the effectiveness of any pain relief medication based on the pain levels in my back/spinal disc area, and my left shoulder.
I have been battling a disc issue in my back for over 2 months now, which has made it nearly impossible to exercise pain free. There are a lot of exercises I can/do safely do, but it doesn’t always feel the best on my body.
Waking up with 25mg of CBD from the Enliven Essentials Hemp Extract Relief Gel Capsules is the best thing I could have been doing for my body, I am sure.
There is not a whole lot of research on CBD products for back pain, but there is quite a bit of anecdotal evidence. One of the main attributes of CBD products for back pain is that it is an excellent anti-inflammatory medicine, helping to ease the cause of a lot of back issues.
I can personally add to this anecdotal evidence, because this product helped me a lot.
Aside from the CBD hemp extract itself, the Enliven Essentials relief gel capsules also contain hyaluronic acid and resveratrol, 2 compounds that are also incredible for the body.
Both products have strong, positive effects on your overall health, making these relief gels truly relieving!
I think one of the main reasons that this Enliven Essentials product thrives compares to others is that it uses a “patented VESIsorb® technology to assist in the absorption process and enhance the extent of dissolution.”
You can clearly tell the difference with this too. There are many CBD hemp extract products which you will not feel any effect from, and it is because their absorption rate is minimal.
Luckily, Enliven Essentials has got this part covered!
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Healing Cream
Aside from the relief gel capsules, this was the product that I was most looking forward to from Enliven Essentials.
The Enliven Essentials Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Healing Cream does not contain sulfates, phthalates, phylates, petroleum or parabens, is sustainably harvested, and contains 50mg of full spectrum phyto-cannabinoid hemp extract!
I was excited about using a topical CBD hemp extract because I had assumed it would be very helpful for inflammation in my lower back, and I was right!
My normal routine with the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Healing Cream is to apply to my back and shoulders (or any specific muscle I worked during my daily workout) about 3 times per day.
Doing so has made an enormous impact on my quality of life with this back injury.
This is one powerful cream, and much more natural than Bengay or other synthetic topical cream!
I am sure that this cream can help with many inflammation-based issues, if you use it 2-3 times per day for just a few weeks!
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Vape (50mg Active Hemp Extract)
To be honest, I’m not much of a “vaper” and probably never will be, but I was pleasantly surprised with this product. The Enliven Essentials Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Vape is a gentle vape that has surprisingly powerful properties.
My wife and I would use this product directly after our workouts, and you can honestly feel the relaxation effects immediately.
One of my favorite properties of CBD overall is that it works to “balance” your body in a variety of diverse ways. By this I mean- if you are a person who cannot eat enough to gain weight, you will naturally want to eat more. If you are a person who eats too much to lose weight, you will naturally eat less.
Using the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Vape after training was an awesome idea because I felt it helped me feel more relaxed and able to make quality food choices, as well as letting my muscles relax to be refueled.
You don’t need to use it for long at all either! Just 4-5 breathes of this vape product and you immediately feel more relaxed, and centered. I cannot express how surprised I was with this.
One additional aspect which I was pleasantly surprised with was that the Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Vape seemed to have an enormous calming effect on my Tourette Syndrome motor tics. As much as I love physical activity, it can have adverse effects on my motor tics.
The stress of intense physical activity can cause my painful neck twitching, or eye twitching.
The Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Vape legitimately helped stop my twitching as soon as I would get out of my workout, I couldn’t believe it!
You can believe anything about us bloggers in-terms of lying about products or whatever you want, but I promise I would never lie or exaggerate about something which helped my twitching!
There have been some initial studies done on CBD products and Tourette Syndrome, but from my experience it could be the closes we come to a sustainable treatment.
Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Chocolate Wellness
I only tried a few pieces of this, but it was awesome. Each piece of the Enliven Essentials Full Spectrum Hemp Extract Chocolate Wellness contains 10mg of CBD hemp extract, and it is a truly rewarding way to get your CBD in during the day.
My advice is to take this along with your protein shake, directly after you train.
Chocolate itself is full of powerful nutrients, and the sugar in chocolate is useful for spiking your insulin levels to create an anabolic response within your body after training.
The CBD hemp extract is helpful for muscle recovery as well, and makes this a very pleasant post-workout treat.
Concluding Thoughts on Enliven Essentials CBD Hemp Products
As I said before, you need to be very careful when ordering any CBD products online. CBD products online or in stores can be vastly misrepresented, and currently the best way to determine which products are legitimate is through word of mouth.
Some products work, and some just don’t.
Enliven Essentials clearly falls in the category of useful CBD products.
I don’t think I need to do much more explaining why you need to give their products a try!
If you have any concerns about trying a CBD or hemp product you should consult with your doctor or medical professional first, but these products have my recommendation.
If you are interested in buying CBD or Hemp Extract products, you need to buy from Enliven Essentials!
