I'm so sick of my friends talking about whatever latest wellness trend they're obsessed with. We've been having weekly group FaceTimes, and I swear every week, one of them has shelled out money on some miracle product or service that claims to be the next best thing.
Last month, it was a monthly tea subscription service (who needs that much tea?!). I'm all for anything that is making my friends feel better, especially during such a weird time, but I'm always so skeptical of fleeting trends.
A few weeks ago, we were all chatting, and my friend Allie mentioned that she's been having a really hard time sleeping and I was so relieved that it wasn't just me. She said she'd tried everything from cutting out caffeine to melatonin, and nothing had worked for her. Until she found Medterra's CBD products.
I've tried a few different CBD products in the past and was always disappointed by the underwhelming results. Another trend that was a complete waste of money.
But Allie told me that Medterra's approach to CBD is totally different from any other brand she'd tried in the past because they put science and quality at the forefront of all of their products. She swore that their Sleep Tight Gummies were a total game-changer and the first CBD product that had actually worked for her.
I mean, good for her, but I wasn't about to make that mistake again. After our call, she sent me a link to their website, and I figured I had nothing to lose by checking it out.
What immediately struck me was how much information Medterra provides. They rigorously test all of their hemp with verified, 3rd party labs and list the purity of every product on the site. Honestly, I thought all CBD was the same, but Medterra's primary focus is on quality and efficacy, and I was surprised to read about how much care they put into sourcing and extracting their hemp.
All of Medterra's CBD is Non-GMO and sourced from organic hemp plants grown at farms here in the U.S. and go through a C02 extraction process that separates the oil from the rest of the plant. That ensures that all of their products are free of THC (which is the component in the plant that can give you that out-of-it feeling).
Medterra also has a great customer care team, and you can even seek advice on what products to try from one of their experts. Boy, these guys have thought of everything. They have products for sleep, relaxation, muscle pain, and even dogs!
I have to admit, their informative website and attention to detail were making rethink the whole CBD thing. Plus, I have been feeling a little more on edge the last few months (who hasn't, right?), so I took a look at some of their tincture bottles.
Medterra's CBD oil tinctures come in different strengths and flavors, which was music to my ears because I don't love the taste of hemp by itself. They also contain other health-boosting ingredients, like MCT, which can help metabolic function. A 1000mg bottle costs $59.99, which is more affordable than other CBD products I've tried in the past that ended up doing nothing for me.
Medterra's website eased any concerns I had about CBD, so I decided to bite the bullet and try the Broad-Spectrum tincture for myself.
When it arrived a few days later, it was a particularly busy day of zoom meetings. I put a few drops under my tongue and held it there for about 20 seconds. The strawberry flavor was nice and not too overpowering. I went about my hectic day, and I can't really explain it, but I just felt more grounded and relaxed overall. I still felt focused, but the day felt more manageable.
I've been using Medterra CBD for a few weeks now, and it's become a staple in my day. The longer you take it, the more it builds up in your system, so I also ordered the Sleep Tight Gummies that my friend swears by.
Medterra has gotten CBD right by creating high-quality products that actually work. Now all I have to do is listen to the "I told you so" taunts from Allie!
