Ever catch yourself in the nutrition aisle, staring at a shelf of different multi’s and wondering which one would be the best supplements to take with weed? Before I began my journey as an ND, I would spend hours contemplating between the price, quality, and quantity of the supplement. I would drain my battery trying to google the safety of the fillers and additives. At the end of it all, I would leave without anything; frustrated with the differences in formulations that claimed to be addressing seemingly the same issue. After a Bachelor in Toxicology and Doctorate in Naturopathy, I hope to ease your agony in that aisle by providing some tips for buying the best supplements for cannabis users.
First, you need to check the label. You are looking to see if it shows all of the ingredients included in the formulation. It does not matter if you are getting your stoner vitamins online or in store, it should never be difficult to see exactly what is in the blend. At LIVLI, we not only list the ingredients but also explain exactly what they do for you as a cannabis user. Check out our “what’s in it” page to learn more about the Proactive Care multivitamin supplement for cannabis users.
While you are reading the ingredient list on the product label, do not forget to peek at the non-medicinal list too. Non-professional lines may include things like artificial flavouring and food dyes, potentially harmful fillers and preservatives. These can cause abdominal pain, nausea, allergic reactions and food hypersensitivities. At LIVLI, we stay true to our customers, using only naturally occurring ingredients that are organic, gluten-free and non-GMO.
You may notice that some supplement companies choose to use a proprietary blend, hiding the doses of individual ingredients. This imposes a certain expectation of trust without any guarantees for you as a buyer. Professional line brands will always give all of the information a buyer needs to make an educated decision on their purchase. Check out the product monograph to get all of the information about Proactive Care that you need.
Recognize Your Population Group
Lastly, it is important to do self-inventory before purchasing something that you may not necessarily need. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you following the food guide on a daily basis and getting the 8-12 servings of fruits and veggies on a daily basis? What about proteins and healthy fats?
- Are you currently suffering from any medical conditions, or have a predisposition to one? Remember that some herbs may trigger certain environmental allergies!
- Are you exposing your body to any environmental toxins, medication, drugs or alcohol on a regular? Are you aware what impact these items have on your body?
These few questions may help narrow down the most fitting stoner vitamins for you. (Remember to always read the label, and consult a licensed natural health care provider if you are currently on any medication or suffering a medical condition before starting any supplementation). LIVLI is currently the only supplement for cannabis users on the market, with the aim to support, repair and replenish the nutrient deficiencies of regular cannabis use.
