With a name like ‘zen’ I started with high hopes that these gummy bears would help with my anxiety and occasional painsomnia… I wasn’t disappointed.
Brightly coloured and presented in a glass jar (which I’ve already recycled to use for jam!) bonus points go to sustainable packaging that doesn’t involve plastic. These gummies are eye catching, bigger than your average gummy bear and are quite frankly, deliciously fruity.
What’s even more impressive is that ZenBears are vegan! Which I never would have guessed because their texture is the exact same as gummies that contain gelatine. Each bear contains 20mg of CBD which is pharmaceutically coated rather than infused, dipped or injected like the majority of CBD gummy products. As a result, a higher percentage enters your bloodstream (in comparison with the aforementioned methods) and ZenBears guarantees a 20mg dosage in each gummy.
In line with the information on their website, I found that these gummies took around half an hour to kick in and it was definitely noticeable when they did so. I started off by taking one bear (20mg) but found that the best dose for me was the have 2 at a time (40mg).
The best way I can describe how these made me feel is by saying that it was like a weight had been lifted from my chest. Often when I'm feeling anxious I feel a tightness in my throat and chest and these gummies definitely dissolved said feeling. Furthermore, this lead to me getting a better night's sleep as I found I wasn't fretting over my day resulting in the day after involving less pain flares.
ZenBears are £39.95 for 30 or £35.96 with a monthly subscription.
