Why You Should Try CBD…And What I Recommend

If you’ve been paying attention to the news, you’ve probably heard about the incredible benefits of CBD (the healthy cannabinoid that does NOT get you “high”).

It started with kids when nothing else worked, then the moms, then the athletes, and now everyone seems to be onto it.

You might be curious if it’s for real, or might have already experimented.

I’ll admit, when I first heard the hype, I was skeptical. So I dug into the research, experimented with different brands, and came to this conclusion….

CBD is definitely something most people should try and use, but NOT ALL SOURCES ARE CREATED EQUAL. So buyer beware.

After quite a bit of experimenting and interviewing sources, I do have a brand to recommend.

But please read my thoughts below (don’t skip to the bottom) so you make an informed decision. You will also learn why combining CBD with healthy chocolate will make you feel simply amazing:)

Balancing Your Body - The Endocannabinoid System

One reason why CBD, “Seems to Help with Everything” is because it helps the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) do its job.

The best way to describe the ECS is as a balancing system: it sends neurotransmitters (messenger + communication molecules) to all your bodily parts to check that everything is working smoothly and confirm if anything needs to be rebalanced. When it finds a problem, it regulates it by sending further instructions to receptors that adjust how you feel and think.

Things the ECS helps regulate include:

* Your digestive system

* Sleep

* Motor control

* Pain and pleasure

* Immune function

* Mood and memory

You can see why the stories you hear from everyone about CBD are so broad.

However, read below about two reasons why CBD helps create what I would call a peak experience and performance….

The Bliss Neurotransmitter (and Why to Combine CBD with High-Quality Chocolate)

One reason why almost everyone who tries the brand of CBD I recommend receives a big-time mood elevation is that it delays the reuptake of a neurotransmitter called anandamide.

What this means is that it keeps anandamide in your brain longer. Your brain naturally produces this molecule, and so does certain athletic activities. For example, anandamide is responsible for the “runner’s high.”

And because high-quality chocolate is a fantastic natural source of anandamide, combining it with high-quality CBD will make those good feelings more intense and they will last longer.

Your Energy Neurotransmitter and CBD.

One reason, aside from the apparent reduction in soreness, that athletes love CBD is because it delays the reuptake of another neurotransmitter called adenosine. Adenosine helps create ATP - your body’s source of energy.

Adenosine helps you feel more energy, workout longer, recover faster, and keeps the blood flowing. So by keeping adenosine around longer, CBD helps magnify and extend its effects.

I could go on with more benefits and reasons why CBD is now a staple in my life, but it all starts to sound too good to be true.

I can tell you it’s completely safe and a game-changer, and it’s best you experiment for yourself.

What to Look for in a CBD product

First, make sure your CBD is full-spectrum and not an isolate. Research from Israel confirmed that you simply won’t get the same positive effects of extracts from the whole plant if you use isolate.

Which means that since you are getting an extraction from a whole plant, it is essential to get a quality plant, grown without pesticides and preferably organic.

You also want to make sure what you are taking can be absorbed by the body.


And beware of “liposomal” solutions. These have artificial ingredients and tend not to work as advertised.

Finally, make sure it’s a reputable brand that actually cares about quality and its people.

The CDB We Recommend

I have tried many brands and keep coming back to OJAI Energetics.

OJAI has a more pronounced effect and works faster than any other brand. This is because they source high-quality hemp, have rigid quality control, and have the best absorption technology on the market --- 20 times more absorbable.

It’s also 100% organic, farmer-friendly, and the absorption technology is all-natural and won’t have negative effects.

You can read about the EIGHT reasons why you should choose OJAI on this page.

And because we asked the founder (Will Kleidon) if he would give our readers a, “no brainer” way to experience the product…

  • Lyn Batllori says:

    Can I order the Ultimate life products together with the OJAI super CBD to be delivered together to France and will the CBD pass through French customs ??

    • Buck Rizvi says:

      Hi Lyn, I just heard back from Ojai and they do ship to France. CBD Oil (no THC) is legal in France and many other EU countries.


  • Jeannie says:

    How does it effect Drug tests for working?

    • Buck Rizvi says:

      Hi Jeannie,
      Hemp CBD oil does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound found in marijuana, so it will not affect drug testing in any way.
