2020 Official Member Review: Kanibi CBD Products


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Sorry it's been a minute since I posted. I've been busy with a 16 week old baby, but I do have some sleep data for y'all (I wear a Fitbit Versa). I started taking the tincture, 1 ml, before bed for the month of September. I had been taking a half dose in the morning and half dose in the evening about an hr before bed. I haven't had as bad of general anxiety during the days with COVID and being around less people, so I decided to forgo the morning dose and take a full dose in the evening.

For the month of August my average sleep per night was 6 hrs. For September it was up about 15 minutes per night. While this isn't a huge improvement, I'll take it. 15 minutes feels like an hour these days. Depending on where you look, it recommended to dose in the morning and in the evening to help the effectiveness, but I have found it just as effective with one dose at night. It's definitely helped my sleep. The highest weekly average was 7 hrs and the most sleep in a night was 8 hrs 33 mins. I've always struggled with restlessness and since starting CBD I can't imagine sleeping without. I have tried various other non-CBD sleep supplements and didn't find the same success.

As far as the balm, I'm still using it every few days. I think that for the money I'm going to just stick with Tiger Balm Ultra Strength. I'd be curious to see some data on CBD and topical application to muscles for recovery. But with TB I get a consistent cool burn relief, where with the Kanibi rub it is hit or miss if I feel any cool. So without the sensation it's tough to tell. 

I do take gummies pre-round and before runs (I run 4 days a week between 5-13 miles per run). I think they help my mental state for sure. I think that for my golf game it helps with nerves and racing thoughts. I don't linger on the bad shots. And I feel that it mellows me out a bit. Since receiving the gummies I've used maybe 2/3 of the bottle. I'd recommend pre-round or pre-activity where you need to fight mental fatigue.

I have re-ordered since testing. I ran out of the Tincture and ordered a 3 pack with 2 tinctures and 1 gummy. I tried another Skittles flavor and a mint-choco. I haven't tried mint yet but will update once I have.

*On an interesting note, the Skittles Tincture I just received of the same strength has a different color, is thicker, and has a more fruity flavor than the first tincture I received. The first one, as I noted in an earlier review, was almost clear and pretty watery with more hemp flavor than Skittles. I've thought about reaching out to Kanibi to see if these are normal inconsistencies. I'll keep you all posted if I decide to reach out.*

Kanibi seems as interested in the results of this forum review as I am! I've already received the product and they surprised all of us testers with variety packs so we'll each get to test the oil tinc

So here are the results of my 2 rounds today:   I dominated the first round! PB score of +10 over par (it is a par 74). I took the oil about an hour prior to the round. I noticed that

Sounds about right for the oil. I noticed that I just don't have the first tee jitters like I normally do. Definitely seeing better drives off the first tee and through the game because of the oil. Co

Interesting about the difference in flavor and viscosity of the Skittles. I mentioned in my review that I originally got the Skittles but exchanged it for the choc-mint because the flavor was so subtle in the Skittles that I didn't think I could continue to test it.

Quick update after posting my full review. I am giving the sports cream higher points as I started having pain in an area of my lower back I do not usually have pain. I was low on the tincture (less than 1mL remaining) so I took what was left, had a gummy, and applied the pain cream. This was after lying on a heat pad for about 30 minutes. Before taking the CBD I was having trouble bending over to pick up the baby out of his crib. Probably a synergystic effect of taking all 3 at once and the heat and some stretching but I am definitely feeling less pain now.

Hey everyone, name’s Eric. I live in Long Island, NY.  I’m 32 years old. Turning 33 Oct. 26th. (so, you know, if anyone wants to get me a present) First time reviewer, long time forum stalker/reader. Want to thank MGS again for the chance to make my first foray into the CBD world through a test for you all. I dabbled into the THC world quite a bit back in my college years and early twenties, so I guess it’s only fitting (fate? Ironic?)  that I was chosen to give the other side of this plant a whirl. Hopefully something that I experienced with the product over the last month or so will sway anyone if they are on the fence with some first-hand information from myself and my fellow reviewers. I don't have any fancy shmansy high-tech stuff to back up any claims, but i'll give you my honest opinion from my eyes and my brain. As much as I can I suppose.

So here we go!

First Impressions:

Was originally slated to receive delivery of the variety pack on Tuesday 9/1. However, woke up Sunday morning 8/30 and, boom, Christmas came early! Wooo! Opened the box, surprisingly without hurting myself, and found these three beauties inside.

842448506_Thethreeamigos.jpg.5949be3d69aec48fdda81b423e0e82f1.jpg

First box I opened was the sports cream. This one was the most intriguing of the three and was the product I threw my hat into the ring to test out originally. 

Cream.jpg.b3dc156f245427f2ea529cf225d14cfa.jpg

Thanks to both a Hockey injury and a rollover, after hitting an ornamental waterfall car accident, let’s just say that my right leg can tell the weather.  (I don’t know if anyone is going to know what that expression means) But if there’s a storm coming, my knee and my ankle get all sorts of whacky.  So I went and gave the cream a little squeeze and like a lot of other pain relief creams, got that menthol-minty smell. Curious how this would work when applied to the pain sites.

Oil.jpg.a9d3e392760d6df69711ed0913f03680.jpg

As for the oil, the child safety lock, was also an Eric lock at times.  Don’t judge, you know those push down and turn all at the same time gets you too.  It’s not just me right? …..right? Well through a little rubber stopper and it got tricky.

Gummies.jpg.ef5e80783cdd46b3774dd25750b11801.jpg

Then there’s the gummies.  This top I could get my whole palm on and open like somewhat of an adult.  They’re your standard gummy. Square, covered in sugar crystals.  Not going to lie, I popped one in my mouth as soon as I got it open.  These could be dangerous, I could eat these all day.

Basic Characteristics (26/30)

I don’t have any pre-existing conditions and this is my first time using CBD products.  So I’m going in with a curious, open mind and seeing what happens.  Here’s the breakdown of each one individually getting me to the 26/30 score for me.

Oil (9/10)

First off, I’m a huge Mint chocolate chip ice cream fan, so the choco mint oil flavor was kind of a no brainer for me. I think they nailed it on the flavoring, and doesn’t have any kind of hempy aftertaste, or really taste at all for that matter.

On to how I tested it.  I started with taking a dropper when I woke up in the morning to get my day started. On a Saturday, in case it for some reason had an adverse effect and made me pass out at work. In fact, the opposite happened for me.  I felt more awake throughout the day, and a lot more productive when taking a dose, and sometimes a second around lunchtime. Overall, pretty happy with the effects it had on me.

I think we all had the same issue when trying to pull a full dose (1ml) into the dropper. I don’t think it’s possible. Best I’ve done is slightly past the .75 line. -1 point

 710450235_Oildropper.jpg.066ed654c6af52aeeebbbc6bacf6f9ed.jpg

Gummies (7/10)

I started eating the gummies just before I would go out and play a round.  I didn’t feel any effects before during or after from the gummies.  It wasn’t until I started eating them before bed every night that I saw their true worth, to me at least.  Prior to testing, I had not been able to sleep through the night without waking up at least once or twice.  The gummies didn’t help right away, but as my testing continued, within the first week, I started sleeping a lot better and was actually only waking up once, and that was to my alarm clock. Gave it an 7 since from what I saw, I don’t think one gummy was enough to do much by itself, but I feel like with continued use, your body will eventually give you the results your looking for.

Sports Cream (9/10)

Like I mentioned in my first impression of the cream, the combination of a pretty bad car accident and a hockey injury, my right leg has taken a beating.  With that, I would get some pain in both my ankle and knee don’t play nice after a while. Applying the cream in those areas when pain comes, I saw pretty much immediate relief which was both surprising and welcomed.

Anxiety (10/10)              

I’ve never really been an anxious person outside of maybe playing golf by myself and being paired with strangers.  That being said though, with either a gummy or two, or a full dropper of oil, I found that the nerves were gone and I would play some of the best rounds I’ve put together in a long time.

Energy (10/10)

Once I found that the oil was my go to morning product, I’ve been much more productive throughout the day, both at work as well as at home after work and on the weekends.  My wife appreciates that aspect of this too.

Pain (9/10)

I don’t usually get any upper body soreness after playing golf.  I do get pretty much every time, pain in my right knee and ankle.  Application of the cream provided pretty immediate relief. I did however find it wasn’t as long term as it is if you couple it with a dose of oil. Obviously CBD isn’t a miracle cure all, and I’m sure I should probably see a doctor, from more than likely not rehabbing them when I should have. But on a temporary basis, I was given full range of motion and didn’t think about, or feel any pain when using the CBD.

My wife even asked to use it when her shoulder was getting sore.  She also saw pretty positive results to the point that within minutes she forgot all about her shoulder. Without it, she would have asked me to massage it for who knows how long. So, thanks CBD for saving my thumbs there!

Taste (10/10)

I don’t really have anything negative about any of the flavor profiles of any of the products.  The Choco Mint hit it on the head.  Subtle, but flavorful with no aftertaste. The fruit chews were delicious all around.  And the cream made my tongue tingly.

One of those is a lie.

On-Course Performance (14/15)

Throughout the testing I wasn’t able to play as much golf as I would have liked.  But prior to testing my “control” round pre-CBD, I shot a 92. Not my best, but was my first round on a full course this year, so can’t complain.  Fast forward to this Friday going to a bachelor party, when I played Blue Ridge Trail, in Mountain Top, PA.  Never played the course before. But I think I played it at the perfect time.  It was pretty fantastic with all the fall colors and crazy views. We don't have mountains here on Long Island!

1013706050_GolfCourse.jpg.e046188e1b5938f3fc5b8865cb5155bb.jpg

Armed myself with a dose of oil, and popped a gummy for good measure.  Birdied the first hole, got an 8 on the second hole par 4 (two pars, one hole, woo), but then parred or birdied the rest of the way, with a couple bogeys scattered in on my way to an 81.  This, I was pretty proud of.  Usually when I play a new golf course, for lack of a better term, it can turn into a “s***-show” real quick if I get too hard on myself. A+ for on course performance enhancement there.

Miscellaneous (5/5)

Shipping was super-fast. No issues with packaging or any kind of leaks or breaks.  Clean, unique packaging on the individual boxes and bottles/containers.  Pricing going forward seems pretty reasonable compared to other CBD brands I’ve looked into offering similar products.

Side note – Outside of golf, I paint miniatures, among other things.  I’m not the best, and I get pretty OCD with it.  But during the testing I painted this guy, and it’s one of the best ones I’ve ever painted if I do say so myself.

IMG_20200808_151229.jpg.d90f0b61d511ce90c41c7e709e757010.jpg

Use it or lose it? (9/10)

I’d use it for sure.  Kanibi runs at least a 15% off specials with bundles and such fairly often and I think at the price point, you get a good product with pretty decent results.

TL;DR

From my point of view, I’m definitely a fan of what CBD products bring to the table.  That being said, everyone is probably going to have a different experience with it.  Not that this is a psychedelic by any means, but for comparison’s sake, I think some of the results are skewed or enhanced by your mindset going into it.  If you think positively and want the product to work, you may see better results than if you go in as a resistant skeptic.  But from me, I’m a believer that this stuff works, and definitely has its benefits for everyone.

Final Score (94/100)

I know exactly what you mean by the leg telling the weather. After my knee injury in the Corps, I can tell when it is going to rain.

For anyone still following, I ran out of my tincture and had 1 gummy left. I played a round yesterday on a course I have shot 84 (from the white tees). I took the 1 gummy and took off for the course hoping to arrive about 45 minutes before tee time to check in and warm up. Well with the 3 year old in tow that didn't happen. She had to go potty halfway there so we had to stop which got me to the course 15 minutes before tee time. By the time we got checked in they called our group so I hit 3 balls on the range to warm up and ran off to the first tee. For context, I also sliced a small chunk of skin off my right thumb while using a mandolin to prepare sliced onions for poke. TL:DR I shot 107. No problems getting off the tee but I kept coming up short with my irons and 3 putted more than I probably did all season. I also developed shoulder pain in my right rotator cuff about a quarter of the way through the round which stayed with me the whole time. Sad part is my new order of CBD came in during my round lol. Will be playing the same course next week armed with CBD and hopefully a healed thumb so we will see.

Yeah, it was strange. I'm excited to try the choco-mint I ordered for my personal order. I'll let y'all know if I notice any differences in consistency/color. And maybe I should with a different flavor? Not sure.

Posted my official review today! I accidentally deleted our original instructions and couldn't get them back so I was a little late with the proper format. It also says the content is hidden and I need to click to show. Not sure why. Maybe because I edited my original thoughts/review and it's waiting to get approved. Either way. Enjoy!

Just FYI I am trying this company called Lazarus Naturals after the great experience I had with CBD oil through this test and have started an unofficial testing thread. Here is the link if anyone is interested.
