I've been looking for ways to improve my habits recently to find a better sense of wellness. I'd thought about introducing CBD, but I had no idea where to start, and what brands were trustworthy. I'm always a bit skeptical when it comes to trends, and I've heard a lot of mixed things about CBD. It seems to work really well for some people, and not at all for others.
I decided to do some research and explore a few different CBD brands. I came across one called Liveli, which stood out to me because all their products seemed to have other beneficial ingredients as well as CBD.
Their products were made with full-spectrum whole-plant hemp and were formulated clean and healthy with no added sugars. I still wasn't convinced on whether CBD was worthwhile, but at least with a brand like Liveli, I'd still be getting health benefits from other superfoods and antioxidants even if the CBD didn't work.
During my research, I found that most CBD brands didn't have any products for beginners or people who just wanted to test it out to see if it worked for them. Products were only offered in full sizes and at a higher price point.
Liveli, however, had a product solely for people who were new to CBD, allowing them to sample three of their powders for just $19.95!
The product is called Find Your Zen and is "the perfect introduction" to their functional superfood powders and the world of CBD wellness. It includes 6 individual stickpacks - 2 of each of the powders. The powders included are CBD + Supergreens, CBD + Collagen Peptides, and CBD + Plant-Powered Protein.
I read that the Supergreens and Plant-Powered Protein are vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free. The Collagen Peptides is gluten free, soy free, dairy free, keto, and paleo. It's made from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine collagen and ethically and sustainably created.
All 3 powders had ingredients with clear benefits other than CBD, and if I found something that worked for me, it would be worth the 20 bucks, so I decided to order it. It arrived promptly to my doorstep in just a few days.
I decided to approach it by trying one a day. I started off my day by adding the CBD + Supergreens to my morning smoothie.
First, I was surprised at how tasteless it was in my smoothie, considering the amount of "green" ingredients, but it still added a hint of flavor I liked. After I finished it, I have to say I definitely noticed a difference. I felt uplifted and recharged and like I was in an overall better mood than usual (I'm not a morning person), but a sense of calm at the same time. It was the perfect way to start the day. It was amazing to be able to introduce a healthy dose of leafy greens I normally struggle to fit in my diet regularly.
The next day, at about noon, I put the coconut flavored CBD + Collagen powder in my midday coffee. This time, I could definitely taste it, it was sweet, but it was delicious - the coconut flavor went well with my coffee. Again, I felt the calmness from the CBD and I felt refreshed and more focused after. I'm also getting to the age now where I could use a little collagen support, so the fact that this CBD powder could help promote healthier hair, skin, nails, and joints was a major plus.
The third day, in the evening I took CBD + Plant-Powered Protein. It had a nice vanilla scent, so I just mixed it with water and found it really tasty. It calmed me down after a long day and got me to relax in the evenings.
I liked both so much I decided to subscribe to get a full size of the CBD + Supergreens and CBD + Collagen Peptides every month. I definitely felt uplifted after drinking the supergreens in the morning, and I liked the calm feeling the CBD gave me. They each work out at less than $2 per serving when you subscribe. Considering all the superfood ingredients, that's amazing value.
I recommended Liveli's Find Your Zen to a few of my friends and one of my vegan friends ended up subscribing to get a full sized CBD + Plant-Powered Protein every month after trying it. Even though it has a hefty 20g of protein per serving, she said it doesn't have the chalky texture of other protein powders she's tried, and she liked the added benefits the CBD gave. She's been adding it to her smoothies, pancakes, other baked goods, you name it!
If you want to try CBD but don't know where to start, Liveli's Find Your Zen is the perfect introduction. It proved to me that CBD does work and it's been a great addition to my daily routine.
