I tried Montel Williams’ CBD routine for a month. Here’s how I felt.

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.

  1. Not a comment but a question: Would cbd oil be beneficial in alleviating my essential tremor at all?

    1. Hi Susan! For specific conditions like yours, we suggest consulting with a medical professional. CBD oil can do a lot of wonderful things but may have different results for each individual. Hope this helps! 🙂


  2. For tremors, It would be worth a try. CBD effects many different systems in our body, the brain, nervous system and immune system are just the beginning. We actually has an endocannabinoid system in our body.


    1. Right! Our endocannabinoid system is such a vast & complex part of our bodies that science is still making sense of. We are excited to see what research uncovers over the next few years. Thanks for dropping by the blog and for your comment, Karen!


  3. Since when is MS a life threatening disease? Get your facts straight and stop trying to scare people so you can make a profit.


    1. Hi there, thanks so much for bringing this to my attention! It’s so important that all the info we share is true and factual so updating the post now. Appreciate you reaching out! – B
