A huge part of my job is testing out products, whether that's a new eyeliner, a face cream, or a hemp CBD product. When it comes to the latter, I've experimented with oils, gummies, gelcaps, and even sparkling beverages. Every time I try a new CBD product, I'm hoping for two things: First, I want the formula to help quiet my inner mental chatter by evoking a sense of calm, and second, I want my body to feel so relaxed that I don't toss and turn before falling asleep.*

Don't get me wrong; I know this is a steep request for any supplement. Many hemp CBD formulas have come close to hitting the mark, often achieving one goal but not the other. Luckily for me, I finally found my dream formula that can do both: the Prima Chill Out CBD Chews.

Why I'm obsessed with the Prima CBD Chews.

It didn't take me a few weeks to start liking these vegan chews; it took one single use. The first time I tried the CBD chew was after a long (and stressful) day of traveling. My head was still spinning, and my body felt tired, yet wired—a caffeine hangover, if you will.

I remembered that I had just received a sample of the Prima CBD chews in the mail, so I figured it was the perfect moment to test them out. I wasn't expecting much, but I figured they would at least help level my mood a little bit. 

After I consumed two of the delicious chews (one serving size), I unpacked my suitcase and tidied up my apartment, which took about 30 minutes in total. When I went to hop in the shower, I noticed something odd. 

My brain was quiet. While I was cleaning my apartment, I wasn't thinking about how much I didn't want to do it or how badly I wanted to be in my bed for the night. Nor was I dreading the impending Sunday Scaries doom. Instead, I just felt at peace.

I quickly realized the 25 mg of broad-spectrum hemp in the formula was evoking a sense of calm, and my theory was supported by science; a large case series study published in the Permanente Journal found that taking between 25 and 75 mg of CBD per day can promote mental and physical relaxation1
