I'm not a fan of mornings whatsoever, so I'm always game for anything that can help make the start of my day less painful. Though I typically save my cannabis use for evenings and weekends, I was open to the idea of kicking off the workweek with some CBD since it's nonpsychoactive. When I recently had the opportunity to try out WillPower Products's new CBD protein powders, I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxed I felt before my day even fully started.
ReGenPCR, the first industrial hemp dietary supplement protein powder, contains 20 grams of grass-fed whey, 20 milligrams of CBD, and six grams of BCAAs. I tried both of its vanilla and cinnamon-cocoa flavors on two separate occasions, and I appreciated how neither tasted of weed. I honestly found the vanilla packet way too sweet to enjoy (and I have a sweet tooth) after blending it into my smoothie made of berries, banana, and milk. But about 15 minutes and halfway into my smoothie later, I was already beginning to feel the CBD's calming effects. For anyone unfamiliar with the benefits of the natural and legal cannabinoid, it's especially great for combating symptoms of anxiety.
As someone who doesn't have anxiety and someone who's a seasoned stoner, I was skeptical of whether this product would do anything for me. But I loved how my body felt less tense and how at ease I felt overall as I made my way to the office. The cinnamon-cocoa flavor was also significantly better tasting and produced the same calming experience as the vanilla. On both mornings when I arrived at work, I noticed an improvement in my mental clarity — a side effect I was not expecting at all. However, I wish the effects were a bit longer lasting, as the CBD wore off by 11 a.m.
Overall, I really enjoyed how the ReGenPCR powders helped me start off my day on the right foot. And although I'll be sticking to the chocolate one, I think this is a great way you can incorporate cannabis into your wellness routine. ReGen protein powders are available on their website for $65 per jug.
