Is VELOBAR CBD right for you?
With the long-awaited passage of a historic Farm Bill legalizing hemp, CBD may have finally turned a corner in terms of gaining widespread acceptance as a healthy alternative to pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter drugs.
According to this article in Consumer Reports, 15% of adult Americans have already tried CBD, and 83% said they felt positive results. Just doing the math here, if the US adult population is roughly 250 million, and 15% have tried CBD, that's 37.5 million people. If 83% of the people who tried it felt some kind of benefit, then that means over 31 million people have already benefited from CBD.
Those are some pretty amazing numbers! But is VELOBAR CBD right for you?
We'd like to be able to state categorically that CBD has a long list of scientifically-proven health benefits. But since hemp has been federally-illegal for so long, it's been nearly impossible to conduct proper clinical trials. Hopefully all that will change now that hemp legalization is finally happening. But running proper clinical trials and getting accurate data about effects, dosage levels and the like will take years. So how can you start finding out now if CBD is right for you...and, if it is right for you, how much of it should you take?
A quick Google search using the search terms "CBD health benefits" reveals thousands of pages of anecdotal evidence about the positive effects of CBD. Some of the most commonly-reported benefits include Pain Relief, Anti-Seizure, Combating Stress & Anxiety, Fighting Cancer, and Reducing the Risk of Diabetes.
It's our hope that we start seeing major clinical trials soon that will provide the data we need on these possible health benefits. But in the meantime, all we have to go on is our personal experience, and the feedback we get from friends, family, and satisfied customers. So, purely based on anecdotal evidence from people who have tried our product, here's what we can tell you about VELOBAR CBD:
Our mission is to promote health, so we created a CBD Nutrition Edible for Relaxation and Recovery. Instead of delivering CBD via junk food like gummies or candies, we created a delicious health bar made with high-protein superfoods like almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, and chia seeds. And, we are Vegan, Gluten-free, and non-GMO.
We think 20mg of pure CBD is just the right amount for relaxation and recovery. For us, we find it relieves stress and anxiety, and encourages a calmer, lighter mood. We also experience a relaxing body sensation, and better sleeping patterns. We like to eat a VELOBAR CBD bar after an intense workout, or after a long day of hiking, biking, or climbing, to help ease sore and tired muscles. We also find it to be a great compliment to yoga, tai chi, meditation, and massage.
We're always curious to find out how CBD has helped people. If you have a story you'd like to share with us about your experiences with CBD in general, or our product in particular, please feel free to comment on this post, or shoot us an email in our contact form. Until we start getting the results from clinical trials, all we have to go on is our own personal experiences.
But still...if 31 million Americans are seeing some positive benefits from CBD, it's probably a pretty good bet that you will too.
We hope you enjoy VELOBAR CBD!
