If you’re at all immersed in the world of wellness, chances are pretty high that you’ve been reading a lot on hemp and CBD-infused food and beauty products. Hemp has been used medicinally all over the world for centuries and now that it is being legalized in the states for medical use, many companies are taking the opportunity to create innovative food products as well as health and beauty products. I recently had the opportunity to try some of the CBD based products from Veggimins and will be sharing my experience with you today.

Organic Hemp Oil with Hemp Extract – Cinnamint
When I first learned about hemp/CBD oil, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical to try it. After doing online research, this led me to realize that the active ingredient in the hemp oil I was sent to try contained the chemical compound CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol. Unlike THC, the other crucial compound in hemp and marijuana plants, CBD does not produce the psychoactive effects that make you feel “high”; instead, it actually helps to ease anxiety.
Veggimins Hemp Oil is a full spectrum CO2 extract derived from organic hemp with a high CBD content. Each full dropper contains 300mg of CBD. The Cinnamint flavor has a blend of organic, therapeutic grade cinnamon, peppermint and rosemary essential oils, making it more palatable than others on the market. To use the oil, dispense the desired amount under your tongue, wait 60-90 seconds and then swallow. This allows for the CBD to enter your system quickly.
Since I’m aware with how my body reacts using CBD in the evening, I decided to change things up by using the oil in the morning. It took about 30 minutes but I was surprised by how subtle the effect was. It almost feels like a newfound sense of clarity and calm that enabled me to focus more throughout the day. With that said, I’m definitely intrigued enough by the subtle effects to continue taking the oil and possibly even to up the dosage per day for a week or so.
Dark Chocolate CBD Hearts
At the core of Veggimins, their belief is that food is the best medicine. And not just any food; chocolate. Their handcrafted raw chocolate hearts are stone ground in small batches from just 3 organic ingredients; raw cacao, coconut sugar, and raw cacao butter. Each adorable dark chocolate heart is infused with just 2mg of CBD. This is a very light dose and great for someone who is just easing into trying CBD. Veggimins suggests taking one heart per day before or after a meal. Since these are like dessert, I’ve been enjoying mine in the evening after dinner. It truly is a delicious chocolate treat with a slight earthy taste which I’m thinking comes from the hemp. The effect I felt from using the chocolate was somewhat similar to the calming effects of a glass wine sans the drowsy side effects.
CBD Chocolate Bar
Love dark chocolate? You’ll love these. Because, well . . . they’re dark chocolate and, from what I can taste, good quality. The bars have the same earthy taste and ingredients as the dark chocolate hearts. Each 1.1 ounce bars contains 15mg of pure cannabidiol hemp oil. I like that the bars are segmented which allows you to eat just a piece or two rather than an entire bar at once. And if you look close enough, you will see the cute phrases inscribed on each piece of chocolate.
There are hundreds of different CBD products on the market. Some more expensive than others. Some with more CBD than others. Veggimins is a good option if you’re first starting out with CBD and want to see if you like it because it balances both quality and affordability.
