How CBD Has Helped Me After Leaving the SEAL Teams

As a retired US Navy SEAL veteran, I know all too well the physical and emotional toll that serving our country can take on a person. When I left the service, I had a litany of issues to deal with, including the emotional decompression I experienced and the effects of physical injuries I acquired during my years of service working within special operations forces. After trying various treatments and therapies, I had another SEAL brother share some CBD with me, and I started to learn more about its potential to help alleviate what I was experiencing.

I haven’t been shy about my post SEAL team life and especially the first year and a half after my retirement. I started using alcohol to self-medicate in an attempt to tone down the anger I was feeling. I also experienced physical pain throughout my body, and I wasn’t willing to commit to a life of prescription medicine that would likely harm me in the long haul rather than address my problems.

A SEAL brother of mine shared with me a bag of his CBD gummies, and I started to take them. I noticed that my pain was lessening, and I wasn’t as angry as I had been in the past. Eventually, I found myself becoming more even-tempered inside and less angry. Then I ran out of gummies, and the anger started to build again. I bought another bag of gummies, and the anger started to diminish again, and I thought, “Hey there’s something to this.”

So I started a CBD company.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has been shown to have a variety of potential health benefits. Unlike its cousin THC, which is the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” associated with marijuana use, CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects. Instead, it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in regulating a variety of physiological processes, including pain perception, mood, and sleep.

I wanted to create a product that was not only effective but also trustworthy and transparent. The Navy SEAL ethos is one I don’t take lightly and resonates with my personal and professional core values. I know firsthand the importance of integrity and honesty, and I wanted my company to reflect those values.

One of the main reasons I started a CBD company was to provide other veterans with an alternative to traditional pharmaceutical treatments for conditions like chronic pain, anxiety, and PTSD. Many veterans are prescribed a metric shit ton of prescription meds, including opioids for chronic pain, which can be highly addictive and have dangerous side effects. CBD, on the other hand, has been shown to have few side effects and a low risk of addiction.

In addition to providing veterans with an alternative to traditional pharmaceuticals, I wanted to create a company that supported the effort to educate and prevent veteran service members suicide, which is climbing at an alarming rate. It’s something I speak of when I travel and address business leaders across the country.

Starting a CBD company, not only as a retired Navy SEAL veteran from Naval Special Warfare but as a small business owner, has not been without its challenges. There is still a lot of stigma surrounding cannabis and CBD, and it can sometimes be difficult to navigate the complex legal landscape. However, I believe that the potential benefits of CBD are worth the effort, and it’s an established alternate form of treatment for many. I think we’re still at the beginning of really understanding what CBD oil can do for the active service members of our armed forces as well as our veterans. In my opinion, this is our new mission – to combat the individual forces that separate us from living our best life and focus on post-career care. Negligence, ignorance, and stagnation for treatment is our new enemy.

If you want to learn more about how I cultivate a strong mindset and apply the use of CBD in my life, check out a recent podcast I was a guest on as I talk about all of this.

Are CBD Gummies for Sleep: A Natural Alternative to Conventional Sleep Aids

For many people, getting a good night’s sleep can be a constant struggle. Insomnia, stress, anxiety, and other factors can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep throughout the night. More and more travelers who experience jet lag are looking for restorative sleep solutions. As a result, many people turn to conventional sleep aids, such as prescription medications, over-the-counter drugs, or even alcohol. However, these solutions and self-medicating often come with a host of side effects and can be addictive.

Fortunately, there’s a natural alternative that’s gaining popularity: CBD gummies for sleep. CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound found in the cannabis plant that has been shown to have a range of potential health benefits, including promoting relaxation and reducing anxiety. CBD gummies are a convenient and tasty way to consume CBD, and many people are using them to improve their sleep when they experience trouble sleeping.

Why CBD Gummies for Sleep?

CBD infused gummies are quite popular in the open market, and in edible format, their appeal is increasing. First off, who doesn’t like candy gummies? In a culture that cherishes the innocence, goodness, and appeal of gummy candy, the idea of consuming a CBD gummy alone is simply fun. As the simplicity of this candy has grown, it’s become a vehicle in the health supplement and pharmaceutical industries for delivering vitamins and medication to both children and adults. Taking CBD gummies is no more complex than taking a vitamin-infused gummy each morning.

CBD edibles, such as a gummy for sleep disorders, are a relatively easy leap to take for anyone wanting to incorporate CBD as a natural and healthy support instrument. The Naked Warrior Good Night Gummies Edible CBD are flavorful and use only natural ingredients. Our gummies use organic cane sugar and tapioca syrup as an alternative to high fructose corn syrup which is commonly used in nearly everything. We won’t use artificial sweeteners or anything that is not a quality ingredient.

With quality CBD gummies, it’s common to notice a little hemp extract taste, but the flavors in all our gummies, like our strawberry lemonade CBD gummy, make the experience a good one! Flavorful, colorful, natural, and effective.

How much CBD should you take?

This is the most popular question we get when it comes to consuming a CBD gummy. The amount of CBD gummies you should take depends on several factors, including your weight, the severity of your insomnia, and your tolerance to CBD. Generally, it’s recommended to start with a low dose and gradually increase it until you find the right dosage that works for you. Many CBD gummies contain 10mg to 25mg of CBD per piece, and it’s common to take 1-2 gummies before bedtime.

Our Sleep Gummies contain 30 mg of CBD oil and may be too strong for a first-time user. If you’re considering CBD gummies for sleep and have never tried CBD before, we recommend you start with either the Green Apple or Strawberry Lemonade CBD gummies that have 10 mg of CBD to start. If you feel you need a little more, increase the dose by 1/2 a gummy until you experience the desired result.

CBD sleep gummies: What makes them different?

CBD sleep gummies are specially formulated with additional ingredients that promote relaxation and help you fall asleep faster. For example, some CBD sleep gummies contain melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep-wake cycles. Others may contain other natural ingredients, such as herbs, which are known for their calming effects.

Other gummies incorporate full spectrum CBD into their gummies which introduces THC and adds to the effect CBD gummies make for sleep. Broad spectrum CBD gummies for sleep do not have THC, and our website offers both full spectrum CBD gummies and broad spectrum CBD gummies.

CBD gummies for sleep vs. conventional sleep aids

There are several advantages to using CBD gummies for sleep instead of conventional sleep aids. First and foremost, CBD gummies are a natural and non-addictive option. Unlike prescription sleep medications, which can be habit-forming, fail to promote healthy sleep or adequate sleep, and come with a long list of side effects, CBD gummies are generally considered safe and well-tolerated.

Additionally, CBD gummies may be more effective than conventional sleep aids for certain people. For example, some individuals may not respond well to prescription sleep medications, or they may not want to risk the potential side effects. CBD gummies are also a good option for people who prefer to use natural remedies instead of pharmaceutical drugs.
