I Tried Social CBD *Sponsored Post

*This post was created in collaboration with Social CBD and MomsMeet. I was sent product for free but all opinions are 100% my own.

At this stage in the game, I have tried a few CBD related products. From drops to tinctures to balms + lotions and back to gummies, I have worked CBD into my wellness routine in a couple different ways. I am a big proponent of CBD and I do recommend that you try it if you're a worrier like me, or have other types of ailments that CBD might help but before I head into this review, please be aware that CBD related products are suppliements and not approved by the FDA. Personal experiences vary and I am in no way making any health claims. You want to be sure that you're purchasing your CBD products from trustworthy sources and not at your corner gas station. As with all things, use your head, do your research and trust your gut.

Social CBD sent me a nice package full of their broad spectrum CBD drops, in a multitude of flavors to try as well as some samples of other products they carry, like their muscle rub, foot renewal and gel caps. I have to say that it is now getting harder to review CBD products based on what I view to be their effectiveness as I do use cbd on a daily basis for a base level of calm. I think you'll now find my reviews to be a little bit more about the product's taste, feel, and if I felt any difference, as that seems the best way to speak to cbd products in my reviews, especially drops and oils.

So the broad spectrum drops are the showpiece in the package they sent me so I will start with these! As someone with no known food allergies, it is easy for me to try new things without being overly concerned about ingredients. That said, if you have any food allergy, you will want to take a look at any cbd or oils you're ingesting. Carrier oils can include nuts and other allergens so be diligent when looking at ingredients. The Social CBD Broad Spectrum Drops Ingredients: MCT Coconut Oil, Natural Flavors, CBD Hemp Extract, Citric Acid, Stevia.

I've been using these drops under my tongue (as instructed) for about a month and while I have noticed no difference in my worrying or demeanor, this only means that this product has seamlessly replaced another cbd oil without incident. I started with the meyer lemon flavor and I have to say that this is one of the better flavored oils that I have tried in my experiences. The carrier oil, I would assume this is the coconut oil, delivers the cbd in a soft, light oil, not a heavy olive oil type of consistency that I have found in other oils. This in and of itself is an improvement from some of the first cbd oils that I've tried.

The broad spectrum drops come in a variety of flavors so it would be easy to find a favorite to slip into your routine. It's an easy, daily application so doesn't interfere with other wellness routines. The drops are lovely but my absolute favorite thing that Social CBD sent me was the sample of the muscle rub! I LOVE THIS STUFF and have already used it all.  As someone who works out at least four times a week and has been doing races and a lot of weights, I have been sore, let's just say that. I generally use an arnica stick for sore spots but this muscle rub has that and more! I have been rubbing this into my shoulder and having my husband apply to my back when I settle onto my heating pad at night to watch my reality tv. This has a menthol rub feel to it and I am very much into it. The next product I can't wait to try is the Multi Balm Calming Stick!

Ingredients: Purified Water, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Isopropyl Alcohol, Natural Menthol USP, Ilex Paraguarenis Leaf Extract, DimethylSulfone (MSM), Tocopheryl (Vitamin E) Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol, Capryly Glycol, Sorbic Acid, CBD Hemp Extract, Polysorbate 20, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf oil, Pyridoxine HCl (Vitamin B6), EDTA

Not to be cast aside is the packaging. When you are finding all manner of cbd products on the market, some of my decision making comes down to what's aesthtically pleasing and the Social CBD team has created such pretty packaging. I'm sure that doesn't mean much to some but it's a cherry on top of a nice little ice cream sundae. Oh man, now I want ice cream!
