RAPPER LUDACRIS ONCE said, “Gone for a minute, now I’m back again.”
Same, Luda. Though, for me, it’s because of my experience with DankeSuper’s latest superfood gummies.
Since August, I have been enjoying DankeSuper’s highly diverse line of products in the comfort of my own home. From their Delta-8 Pâte de Fruit to their Super01 3000mg Hemp Oil, I have found their thoughtful blends nuanced, delicious, and most importantly, effective.
Plain and simple: DankeSuper want us to feel good. And they will stop at nothing until they’ve unearthed every clean superfood in existence to get us there.
The latest gummy to fall in my lap (and palate) is their Cordyceps CBD Clarity Gummy, and let me tell you, I have never met another gummy like it.
A Refresher On Cordyceps…
Get this: cordyceps aren’t exactly a new thing.
Having been used in Chinese Medicine to treat issues like sickness and fatigue* for legiterally thousands of years, cordyceps have made a name for themselves in the medicinal mushroom family as the ultimate energy replenisher. Need focus? Feeling chronically fatigued? Cordyceps have your back.
Thanks to up-to-date wellness trends, perfectly curated east-meets-west brands, and painfully fried adrenal systems, these magical fungi have been placed on the mainstream map, providing an endless foray of potent benefits.
What I love most about these adaptogenic essentials is their versatility. They can be used in almost anything — supplements, drink mixes, dessert, and yes, gummies.
TL;DR: At this point, I’m going to assume you’ve heard of adaptogens, which — in short — help bring the body back into balance by creating a more adaptive response to stress. Less stress means less inflammation and a happier life — you know, like 2019-kind of happiness.
Now let’s get onto the good stuff…
The Cordyceps CBD Clarity Gummy
Unlike their delta-8-containing Pâte de Fruit, Dankesuper’s Cordyceps CBD Clarity Gummy is focused on a whole new kind of high.
By brilliantly combining full-spectrum hemp with other synergistic ingredients like full-spectrum cordyceps, caffeine, and cherries, Dankesuper has created a mentally energizing, physically chillaxing concoction that somehow balances clarity and focus with a full body calm-down. Clean, easy, delicious!
Caffeine | With 50mg of caffeine, these gummies contain the ideal amount of clean energy that can easily replace your daily cup of joe without the energy crash. Even if you take these gummies 2-3 times per day, you’re still well within range of your daily caffeine intake, leading to a highly effective (not-excessive) dose of stamina.
Full-Spectrum Hemp | What is life without a little full-spectrum hemp? Whether you’re needing to be productive around the house or you’re looking to revive yourself from an intense 3pm slump, the CBD / Full Spectrum Hemp in combination with the cordyceps and caffeine leads to a calm, cool, and collected kind-of vibe.
Dark Cherry | Other than being tasty as hell, cherries have a ton of incredible benefits. Jam-packed with antioxidants, melatonin, vitamins, and minerals like magnesium, cherries can potentially aid in muscle recovery, better sleep, and less inflammation.
Full-Spectrum Cordyceps | These adaptogens were made for that moment you need to focus without feeling strung out (like some of us used to feel during a last-minute study sesh in college). With adaptive properties, cordyceps can provide an extra boost for cognitive or physical performance*.
Trying to imagine it in your routine? The Cordyceps Cherry CBD Clarity Gummy is the AM gummy while Dankesuper’s Apricot THCO Gummy is more of a PM gummy.
And if you’re not familiar with THCO (because who is), it’s basically a compound that is potentially 2-3x stronger than Delta-8. Damn!
What Happened When I Dabbled
Whether you know me or not, I’ll tell you one thing and one thing only: I live and breathe for an unboxing #moment, and peeling back the layers to reveal my fanciful gummies had me screaming, “This is LUXE!”
Similar to a chocolate truffle tray, I had in front of me an incredible landscape of Cordyceps CBD Clarity Gummies, ready to be tested.
As someone who is no stranger to endless blue light fatigue and work stress, I opted for trying the gummies in a few circumstances: before my morning workout / workday and in the midst of my afternoon slump.
In the morning I feel…bloated, but also tired, but also dead inside. With that said, I popped one of these high-class gummies into my mouth before logging into my daily pilates Zoom class.
Weirdly, or I guess not so weirdly, I felt relaxed, present, and energized — three adjectives I haven’t used to describe myself in almost two years!
I moved through my workout without distraction (I usually find myself reading texts and checking Slack messages stealthily during and it sucks). I also found myself more ready to get my workday going, which is not like me at all!
Next was the unspeakable afternoon “womp” hour, which is honestly several hours, but I’m really working on my perspective. Usually, at around 2:30pm, my energy plummets, my eyes glaze over, and I feel like I’m slowly flatlining in front of my computer. Although mostly paralyzed, I managed to swiftly throw a gummy into my mouth. Within the hour, I felt clear. And I really mean this: clear.
The seamlessly balanced ingredients made that cement-like feeling that normally loads into my chest in the latter part of the afternoon dissolve and lighten. I could breathe, and best of all, I could see a blast of comments come into my Google Docs without one, losing my temper, two, getting agitated or three – yelling, “Are you kidding me?” This was big!
What I loved the most about these damn gummies was that they did not, for a second, disrupt my sleep.
To be fair, you should think of these gummies like a cup of coffee — if you’re sensitive to caffeine, a late-day or evening dose is likely setting you up for a lack of sleep success.
However, timed right, I felt like my sleep was actually more restful and uninterrupted. And again, no “I’m stoned” feeling included.
The That On That
From the Delta-8 gummies to the new Cordyceps CBD Clarity Gummies, so far DankeSuper has delivered some pretty incredible products my way. My sense of what CBD can do has totally changed. I was just beginning to think of myself as a kind of CBD expert before DankeSuper introduced me to Delta-8, this cordyceps blend and THCO. We’re really only just beginning to see what CBD can do thanks to inventive, science-based brands like DankeSuper creating these synergistic CBD blends for a variety of purposes.
