Curious but cautious. CBD use?

Basically every pro athlete in “Extreme sports” is repping CBD right now. Is that all the anecdotal evidence we need or is it just the marketing machine?

Marketing machine for sure. The market is over saturated IMO due to lack of regulation. I mean, you can buy it at a damn mall kiosk. You need to research and seek out a quality product.

Take it FWIW (it's reddit after all) but there is some good info here

And they set up a list of "quality" vendors, again I don't know how legit it is, but it's a starting point

The real issue is that the feds have it classified as a schedule 1 substance which makes it extremely difficult to research, there are significant hurdles that must be overcome. There was a great JRE about this, wish I could remember the guy he had on talking about it.

There's talk of getting it changed from schedule 1. Hopefully the new administration will make some headway here (but I won't hold my breath). One thing that's clear: it's getting harder and harder for the federal government to continue not ignore this since every year more and more states legalize it.

Outside of the US I'd have to believe conducting studies would be easier (looking at you Canada) so I wonder why we don't see anything there? Could be that there are ongoing studies that just haven't been completed/published yet?
CBD isn’t schedule 1, depending on the THC level. Logically, I would think that the pharma or supplement is industry would be all over this if it had definitive activity. If you really want to sleep better, try melatonin from high quality supplier. I’ve been using it for a couple of years and the quality of my sleep has really improved, plus it has other health benefits that have been studied, like a reduction in inflammation.

don't watch ANW just before bed - or WWE. ;)
you've been a parent long enough - benadryl them - and keep the good stuff for yourself.

No screens before bed, no COD4, GTA, or Roblox either. You can also give melatonin to your kids.
My twins are 6 and share a room, I have used melatonin with great success with them as it was romper room every night. You gotta time it like 15-30 min before lights out because if you go past the point when it starts to kick in and they are not in bed yet, it becomes tantrum time. We have moved past using it but it works.

Their dark honey cough stuff is excellent as well.

It’s good stuff, and 15-30min before is the sweet spot. I don’t use it on my kids that often because they’re a little older and get to sleep on their own. Plus they’re althletes, so if they’ve had a good workout that day the sleep comes naturally. I use it for the other benefits in addition to the sleep.

lol, I was just playing around about 'drugging' my kids. Didn't know the realness.
Luckily one is old enough to know not to hurt the other.

I don't think you want to sit towards the end of dinner without peppa on a screen... but usually after that they don't got to bed for another 1hr plus
