Kanibi CBD Oil– Official MGS Forum Review by coyote_jones
Hey MGSers. My name is Adam, AKA coyote_jones, and I’m a 33 year old living in Minneapolis, MN. I’m a tall 5’6” and top the scales around 140 lbs. I don’t know what my handicap is currently, but I average around 85-88. My typical ball flight is a baby fade. I’m pretty strong off of the tee. My irons aren’t as accurate as I need them to be. My game from 100 in is a dumpster fire. Putting is good enough to save bogey.
Also, huge thanks to MGS and Kanibi for the opportunity to review this product.
My first impressions of Kanibi were that that the packaging and branding was attractive. I liked the black bottles on the sports cream and the tincture, and I thought the gummies looked delicious. I’ve used +CBD Gold Formula Tincture and their bottle looks like something my Great Uncle would have in his bathroom. The Kanibi packaging is much more modern and less Great Uncley. It’s simple and sleek. As far as the flavor I chose Skittles; I wanted something different than the mint I had been taking with my other oil. Mint was cool. Skittles sounded cooler.
Basic Characteristics (24 out of 30 points):
I started using CBD with the goal of sleeping better. I’ve tried melatonin gummies, tea, and anything else that says it will help. Most things didn’t. I wear a Fitbit Versa 2 to track sleep and was excited to see how my sleep patterns adjusted to the new oil. I had been taking 20mg of +CBD oil (10 in the a.m. and 10 in the p.m.). With the Kanibi Skittles Tincture I decided to take a full dose of 25mg 30-45 mins before bed. Here are some results:
Oil (9 out of 10 points):
See the above photos for some sleep data using the Oil. For me 25mg under the tongue did the trick. The oil doesn’t linger in my mouth like the +CBD oil did. It’s there, then it’s not. I liked that the dropper has the mgs labeled on it. It made for easier dosing. The other product I used had one line at the halfway point, but didn’t really tell you how much that was. Well done on the markings Kanibi.
I definitely plan on continued use of the Kanibi CBD oil. Of the 3 products they sent, the oil is the one I feel I’ve had the most success with.
Gummies (6 out of 10 points):
I was surprised and stoked to receive the gummies. I love gummies. My partner always gives me crap because if I ever buy vitamins or supplements they’re ALWAYS gummies. $10 more? Don’t care. Give me the gummy.
I used gummies pre-round for golf and before my weekly long runs which I do twice a week. I take gummies 30-45 mins before the activity, and I use one gummy which is 10mg CBD. It’s tough to describe how the gummies make me feel. I feel calm but energized and able to focus better. It’s not an overwhelming feeling, but I feel it’s there. I would rate the gummies higher if I were more convinced it was the gummies that made me feel this way. I will likely re-order gummies because I haven’t gone through a whole bottle yet. Since I don’t take them every day, and I think they help, I can justify buying them as they last longer than the month my tincture lasts.
I keep the bottle in my golf bag:
Sports Cream (5 out of 10 points):
For a 33 year old I’m above average achy and am pretty sure that I have some early signs of arthritis. It runs in the family (thanks, Dad). I don’t take any medications for this, but was happy to have received the sports cream. I used it on my hands and knees. Quads. Groin. Calves. So much cream. I didn’t apply more than a pump, dime size maybe, on an area at a time. I could usually feel the cooling sensation pretty immediately and felt some relief for soreness pretty quickly as well. I don’t know that I’ll continue to use it as I’ve mainly enjoyed the cooling sensation and there are cheaper non-CBD products that I prefer. If I go back to one of those and feel like they don’t work as well as the Kanibi CBD infused cream worked, maybe I’ll switch back. I just wasn’t convinced enough to buy it again, but I did enjoy using it.
Anxiety (8 out of 10 points):
On the course I get some anxiety about my swing. I’ve been rebuilding it a bit since restarting and have battled the S word earlier this year. So that’s always on my mind. I think that the gummies helped me control these thoughts. I was able to let thoughts go, and focus on my next shot if I hit a bad one. I’ll definitely continue to use it for this reason.
Energy (6 out of 10 points):
This rating is for the gummies pre-round and pre-run. Maybe I was energized just being on the course. Maybe I was energized because I enjoy my long runs. Maybe the gummies provided a boost. Tough to tell what the main factor was, but I definitely felt a pick-me-up to start these activities.
Pain (5 out of 10 points):
I don’t know that the gummies or tincture helped with my general soreness or arthritic hands. The cream seemed to help my problem areas a bit. It was a convincing 5 out of 10. Maybe with a higher dose and more cream I could relieve more pain. For now, I’m happy getting better sleep and can deal with my soreness. Check back with me in 5 years...
Taste (9 out of 10 points):
I chose Skittles because of Marshawn Lynch. Good enough for him, good enough for me. The fruit flavor in the tincture was mildly fruity with not a lot of hemp flavor (for my second bottle that I ordered). The bottle I received for testing was less fruity and more hempy. The consistency of the oil was different between the two as well. I didn’t get a picture of my first oil, but it was very clear, not a hint of yellow, and much runnier than the second bottle. The second bottle looks just like the oil in @golfish!’s review.
On-Course Performance (13 out of 15 points):
For those with some first tee jitters like me, here are the tee shots for my last 3 rounds:
Better golf scores would have made this a 15/15. My golf game, however, is the Russian Judge.
Final Performance Comments:
I’ve become a believer in CBD products, especially after using the Kanibi products. My sleep quality has gotten significantly better. I feel consistently more well rested, and I can’t put a price on that. Would I recommend this product for golf? Sure; it won’t hurt. Would I recommend it as a sleep aid? Absolutely. I’ll continue with the tincture for sleep and am excited to try some more flavors.
Overall, I was impressed with Kanibi’s line of products. They’ve got something for everyone.
Miscellaneous (3 out of 5 points):
I received both my test order and personal orders quickly. I haven’t had any interactions with customer service, but may reach out about the consistency issue I noticed between my two tinctures of the same flavor and dosage. Other than that, I loved the packaging and branding. Their website is nice too, and I’ll straight up not buy something if the branding or website aren’t appealing.
Use it or lose it? (7 out of 10 points):
I’ll continue to use 2 of the 3 products I tested. I think that any golfer who struggles with negative swing thoughts or pre-round anxiety could benefit from the tincture or gummies before their round. The golfer who doesn’t sleep well will benefit from the tincture.
My golf scores may not have improved much, but my sleep score did. I’ve been looking for something to help me sleep better for years and with the help of Kanibi CBD Oil I’ve turned into the annoying “have you tried CBD” guy. And I’m okay with that.
Final Score: (93/100)
