Do you have a CBD routine? I love CBD in smoothies, in my beauty products, and I’ll take a hit from my CBD vape to quickly ease anxiety on the go. But in all my years of using CBD regularly, I can’t really say I actually have a routine.
That’s why when I came across Montel by Select, I was super curious to try the system out. Here’s the low down.
The company was founded in 2017 by media personality and wellness advocate Montel Williams. You might recognize his name from his talk show, but what you might not know is that Montel lives with multiple sclerosis, which is a disease that affects the central nervous system. He personally has relied on cannabis for his own pain management, and created his company with the goal of promoting wellness with safe, reliable access to the same CBD and THC oils that he has.
His flagship product is bottled CBD capsules (100% hemp-derived, containing zero THC), and each bottle contains 30 gel capsules with 50mg of CBD each. Two options are available: Alert which is designed to be taken in the morning, and Relax which is designed for evening consumption.
For easy access, I kept both on my bedside table for all 30 days, taking a gel capsule of Alert in the am, and Relax right before bed.
So… after one month of 2x daily doses of Montel by Select, how did I feel? While I’m not incredibly picky about CBD in general, I am able to tell when a product is high quality by how it makes me feel – and Montel’s company is creating some quality stuff.
In the morning, I usually wake up groggy and a little stiff, especially in my back. After about two weeks of taking Alert, I noticed my muscles were less tense when I first got up. And, while I’m not ready to toss out my morning coffee just yet, Alert gave me a little lift of energy which was much appreciated.
After a long day, I looked forward to taking Relax at night. My pm dose was where I felt the strongest effects right away – I was able to de stress, settle in, and get a good night’s sleep after only a couple days of taking Montel by Select.
The one month “challenge” of starting a routine is something I’d recommend to anyone that’s tried CBD but hasn’t found consistent results. I’m definitely sticking to my am and pm plan, to help carry me through the day with ease.
