I tried Evn’s CBD gummies
Remember when Bilbo told Gandalf he felt old, even though he wasn’t looking at it? (Same, king.) Like “scraped butter on too much bread”? I think my brother just needed a trip to Spa paradise and the right type of CBD.
There is a cannabidiol experience for everyone these days. Unlike weed, broad spectrum CBD does not contain psychoactive THC, which means you get all the warm and fuzzy without any of the paranoid scares or trippy visuals (RIP to when I ate a pot brownie at a Justice concert). I have tried everything since CBD pajamas at CBD lubricantbut when the feel-good mark Event reached out to spread the stoner gospel with its line of CBD products, I thought, Damn hot. They make CBD gummy bears now?? Were the CBD lords finally giving people what we wanted? (Which are, to be clear, nostalgic CBD treats to munch on.)
I broke that control button to see if Evn’s erasers would meet my expectations for that classic gummy bear taste and relaxing experience I expect from my favorite CBD products.
what was awesome
There is a plot of CBD stuff out there. And that’s cool, but it can feel overwhelming and fancy at times. That’s why I really appreciate Eventmarketing approach and ingredient transparency; each item is in a simple, straight-forward bottle with clear packaging and is made from non-GMO, organically sourced, broad-spectrum hemp that has been lab-tested for quality. If erasers aren’t your thing, there’s also a selection of CBD oils, ointmentsand capsules. Cute stuff, but we’re here for the gummies, which come in two flavors, OG and sour:

At 10 milligrams of CBD per bear, I pounded four or five of these little guys during the afternoon. (Evn also has a dosage guideand recommend total n00bs to take 5 milligrams / half a bear.) I was impressed with the quality Event mastered the classic gummy bear flavor and texture; the gummies had the same matte, velvety texture and none of the grassy bitterness that can sometimes be found in CBD products.
Within half an hour, I could feel the tension in my jaw release and my muscles relax. I wasn’t “stoned”, but it felt like every noodle in my brain was taking its own bubble bath and breathing a long sigh of relief.
At best, I think CBD should feel like getting an invisible back/soul massage every few minutes. I know it’s a tall order, but Event‘s gummies lived up to my expectations pretty well; they made me feel like I was sitting on a cloud for about two to three hours, didn’t taste like ass, and have now become as much a staple of my tote bag as my Oakley, microdose mushroom capsulesand hand sanitizer.
What was tricky
I could snack on it all day. The whole bottle would disappear in a few hours if I kept them on my desk, so I store them in our medicine cabinet or in my bag to avoid running out of my entire stash.
My biggest hope was that these edible bb stoner bears would taste just as good as real gummy bears, and they came close in both texture and flavor, with just the right amount of sweetness and none of the bitterness often found in CBD treats. More importantly, the 10 milligram dose per bear allowed me to regulate exactly how ~relaxed~ I wanted to feel (three bears = cold; five bears =spookygg) without ever making me drowsy.
Whether you’re new to CBD, a seasoned CBD user, or just trying to get a friend or family member into the wonderful world of cannabidiol, EventAdorable (and tasty) gummy bears should be your next pantry staple.
