Kwei Quartey knows a thing or two about what’s good for the body. The retired physician and author who made a career in internal medicine, urgent care, and chronic wound care, now has his own brand of high-quality CBD products to help soothe your body and mind.
Edible Calm is a Black-owned CBD brand with a range of products to soothe your soul and calm your nerves. If you’re not yet familiar, CBD is a component found in industrial hemp and cannabis. CBD is commonly used to address anxiety. Studies also suggest that CBD may also help with falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD may also be an alternative option for treating different types of chronic pain.
“As a medical doctor for decades, I’ve prescribed medications for numerous ailments. But many of these powerful opioids, antidepressants, antiarthritics, and anti-anxiety agents have unpleasant side effects, especially the addiction that has tragically ruined so many lives while enriching the drug companies. CBD is a powerful, all-natural alternative,” Quartey said.
Edible Calm carries an assortment of CBD gummies and tincture. They also carry CBD in softgel form for those who feel more comfortable taking CBD with the ease of a vitamin or other pill.
For Quartey, CBD has helped him combat stress and soothe chronic headaches. He says that taking CBD daily, rather than just on days when he has a headache, has made the greatest difference.
“The main area for me has been headaches. I have been a headache sufferer since I was 10 years old. CBD definitely reduces my reliance on ibuprofen and other medicines.”
Since Quartey knows the importance of daily CBD use, he’s discounting all of his products by 50% so you can stock up and truly see whether CBD works for you.
“A lot of people take it once and feel like it’s not working for them. Sometimes you need to keep increasing the dose until you feel the effects. It takes time, but it’s definitely worth a try.
Quartey’s advice is sound. When trying CBD for the first time start with a low dose and wait two hours to see how it affects you. If you don’t feel any better, take more until you reach a dose that works for you.
