Review: ACTIV8 Syrup from

5 out of 5 stars

My mother served in the Navy and has instilled in me a deep respect for veterans. As I became more involved in caregiver advocacy, I began to understand the difficult and complex lives of caregivers of veterans through my volunteer work with Soldiers' Angels. 

I am thrilled to see many CBD companies offering discounts to veterans, who can benefit from hemp oil to relieve pain and anxiety. Their caregivers can also benefit from CBD products. is a Las Vegas-based CBD company owned by Joe Vargas, who is a Navy veteran. The company offers a 15 percent discount to verified veterans.

I was eager to try the company's ACTIV8 Syrup, which is a CBD formula designed for daytime use to help relieve pain and anxiety. It is all-natural, unflavored and does not promote drowsiness, yet contains 325 mg of full-spectrum CBD per 4 oz. bottle. There is up to 8 servings per bottle. The cost is $49.99, and the company often offers discounts.

Looking for healthier alternatives to cocktails, I've been experimenting with mocktails using Seedlip, a botanical-flavored water. Adding a dose of ACTIV8 to my mocktail gave a sense of relaxation without drunkenness or any negative side effects. I've also used ACTIV8 in herbal tea, which is a great combination for anxiety relief during the day. (Note that the syrup is ideally meant to be mixed into something. It does have a sweet taste from the vegetable glycerin if consumed directly from the bottle, but contains no artificial flavorings.)

If you are looking for a daytime CBD supplement to combat pain and anxiety, I recommend trying ACTIV8. Its versatility and effectiveness make it a good choice for daily use for active people.
