In future prestige dramas about the years surrounding this one, set designers will scatter proof of CBD around house spaces as an easter egg for eagled-eyed audiences. “Did you observe how all of the products in the apartment stated ‘CBD’ on them?” one such audience will ask a pal. “It stands for cannabidiol, a chemical compound stemmed from hemp that, throughout that time duration, everybody was eating and putting on their bodies and feeding to their canines.” “Oh,” the buddy will say. “ No one understood why they were consuming the CBD or putting it onto their skin or in their pet dogs, they just did it.” “Cool.” “They perhaps thought it would improve something.” “Okay.” “Or dehance it, so to speak, if that was the preferred effect.” “Huh.” “Sigur Rós even made CBD products at one point.” “The Icelandic band Earth Granny liked?” “Yeah.” “Huh.”
Yes, it’s true– Sigur Rós, in collaboration with CBD-focused artist collective Vona, has released a duo of 1000 mg broad spectrum CBD tinctures. The tinctures are called “Sleep” and “Wake” and are said to, respectively, “support your body and mind as you drift off into the ethereal” and “help you line up with the real world” They are $58 separately, or $9995 for the duo.
It of course makes sense that Sigur Rós would launch a line of CBD tinctures. Their music, both in its post-punk and ambient forms, is the acoustic equivalent of CBD– or, more specifically, the acoustic equivalent of claims related to the anxiety lowering effects of CBD.
However does it work?
For the sake of background, I wish to state that I have at points, mostly in high school, been an active fan of Sigur Rós. In fact, while CBD is non-psychoactive, the band caused one of my most naturally psychedelic high school memories. Throughout sophomore year, I had music class on a turning schedule with speech and art. It consisted of not music however screenings of Amadeus and directed meditations during which the majority of the class went to sleep on the floor. I was a music obsessive who disliked school in basic and my school in specific, where I had no one to speak with about the music I liked. I deeply frowned at the musiclessness of “music class.”
* From what I remember, the thought was tossed into the classroom contextless. My interior life and my outside life collided with the level of intensity that if carried out in between 2 ultra-dense stars might result in a black hole.
It was exceptionally crazy. But let’s see how the CBD is.
I ‘d like to say right away that these are the best tasting CBD products I have sampled, and I have sampled numerous. As an author, PR companies often reach out to me to see if I ‘d like to attempt out their CBD-related products, and usually I do, since who am I to state no, conserve for the dog-related CBD items, which I consistently decline out of fear. I’ve attempted several edible CBD casts, just one of which– labeled “EXTRA STRENGTH”– had a noticeable impact, when I accidentally took four times the suggested dosage and later attempted to walk my pet.
Most of the tinctures taste like weed and dirt, or something like weed and dirt and mint. This one tastes a little like that, however primarily like rose and lemon, which is its stated taste.
It is great, however, to have another step in the sleep regimen. Oops, need to take my sleep oil! It’s excellent to provide yourself little tasks, especially now. It’s likewise good to have a smidgen of hope that something may make anything even slightly better. This is, of course, why rip-offs work. Most likely nothing will ever make anything better. This is, obviously, life.
Wake is likewise scrumptious, as far as CBD oils go. Again, it’s great to pretend you’re in Alice In Wonderland and you have to take your little wake-up medicine to aliven yourself to the day.
Maybe it’s more like Peter Pan, and I simply didn’t think enough. Or possibly the world is too heavy to be raised by the guarantees of CBD. Listening to Sigur Rós’s music in preparation for this piece did inspire a visceral experience within me, carrying me straight back to my early teen years. And I performed in reality feel this in my mind and body. Perhaps the casts are unneeded anyhow.
I have because concluded that because this occurred around the time of the release of (), NPR needs to have done a segment about them. Actually, after some Googling, I want to state she potentially heard this
