Before we were permitted access to legal cannabis products in this state, there were a good amount of companies working hard to manufacture mimicry products that contained legal compounds. I remember the head shops carried these “special brownies” that basically had a huge dose of melatonin plus valerian root inside. Together, you’d get sedating effects but very mild. It was nothing to brag about. Eventually a company called “Marley’s Mellow Mood” started selling drinks with a similar ingredient list to the special brownies. I bought a number of them back in university despite having access to true cannabis, plus I genuinely remember feeling nothing more than a bit of sedation from those unique products. In reality, you’d genuinely feel extra effects from diphenhydramine over-the-counter tablets or melatonin supplements. Recently I found a unusual kind of drink altogether, this one combines the effects of caffeine plus CBD to give the user a fairly powerful, however balanced feeling of mental plus physical stimulation. Despite the misnomer of CBD being a strong sedating drug, it absolutely produces stimulation in a good amount of users at common doses. When combined with caffeine, it naturally softens some of the edginess that many users experience when consuming it in tea or iced tea for example. These are popular drinks for the daytime especially, as I guess there are many out there who appreciate tea however just can’t deal with the raciness they tend to feel whenever they consume it. I wish the CBD stores in our town would all sell these special hemp drinks because they’re not the easiest products to source locally. I had to get mine from an online CBD store for the longest time.
