This article was created in partnership with Paradigm Media

By now you've probably heard that there are a handful of ailments that science and athletes say CBD can actually help with: trouble sleeping if you have a big meeting tomorrow, body aches after taking a backhoe off your mountain bike, stress or anxiety when you're in charge Start building and muscle recovery after a heavy leg or chest day.

But the key to harnessing the power of CBD is to separate the snake oil from the reliable formulas. That means finding brands that have intentional wording.

For starters, this looks like using high-quality hemp. But we think it's best not to rely solely on CBD - there are a number of other plants that can act as medicine to help you sleep better or recover faster.

Input possiblya no-fuss CBD brand that focuses on high-quality extracts trusted by world-class athletes.

Evn CBD products are made from non-GMO, organically grown hemp plants on family-owned hemp farms in Colorado. Smaller farms tended by real people are usually a guarantee of higher quality crops.

Evn then uses high-quality CO2 equipment to extract the CBD from hemp plants for cleaner distillation, and tests all of their final formulas at accredited, independent third-party labs to ensure everything meets standards for quality and consistency.

The result: you're infusing your body with incredibly high-quality CBD that's proven to be pure, reliable, and as effective as possible.

But there are two other reasons why Evn CBD products stand out from the rest. First off, its products, which focus on sleep, pain relief, and other ailments, harness more than just the power of CBD — the formulas have been carefully crafted with other powerful herbs and botanicals that are scientifically proven to help find relief, like curcumin for pain and L-theanine for sleep.

But the highlight: Evn offers a 30-day satisfaction guarantee, which means that you will get your money back if you find that the products do not help your complaint. So there's little reason not to give the brand trusted by athletes and everyday types alike no chance.

For sleep: Evn sleep powder

As little research as we have on CBD, we're fairly confident that it can help with insomnia: When people who had underlying insomnia problems took CBD before bed for a month, about 67 percent began getting a better night's sleep, one reports big year 2019 study in the Permanente Journal. Other research shows that CBD could even help people with sleep apnea and insomnia.

Evn's Sleep Powder provides 20mg of full-spectrum CBD per serving, enabling the entourage effect, which allows terpenes and other cannabinoids to work together to amplify the power of CBD.

But what makes this powder really potent is that in addition to the cannabinoid, this product is boosted by a blend of vitamins and minerals, all backed by science to either help you fall asleep faster or stay asleep longer, including magnesium, passionflower , L-theanine and melatonin.

The powder has a nice, slightly sweet vanilla-cocoa flavor that mixes well in warm milk or a 'Mylk' alternative - a nighttime drink that will give you hours of uninterrupted rest for tomorrow's adventures.

If you find yourself feeling anxious or stressed on a regular basis, we couldn't recommend CBD more. Studies show that small doses of the cannabinoid can help with a range of anxiety-related disorders. Even the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that rats given CBD show less anxiety and lower heart rates. CBD, in particular, can help balance the nocturnal, anxiety-induced, wide-awake feeling that most of us know all too well.

For stress and anxiety, we love Evn's pure CBD formulas, which offer a super clean cannabinoid from organically grown, small-scale hemp plants with no herbs or minerals to enhance effects. For that, Evn has two products that we love.

CBD gummies are ideal when you want a smaller, more controlled dose. You know exactly how much CBD you're getting with each gummy (10mg), and you can adjust your dosage higher or lower depending on how you feel afterwards. It takes longer to kick in (your body has to digest it), but it's often a more nuanced and stable stabilizer.

Meanwhile, if your stress and anxiety levels vary from day to day, tinctures are more versatile. They're also ideal when you need the relief to get started as soon as possible. Evn's tinctures are made with broad spectrum CBD, meaning they contain no traces of THC but offer the benefits of other botanicals.

A full dropper of Evns CBD Oil delivers 50mg of natural stress relief. That said, if you just need a little help to ease that heart-pounding feeling, you can play with a quarter or half pipette; then, on days when you're looking for some serious relaxation — say, after meetings or long trips — you can get more milligrams of relief without having to choke down a few capsules or gummies.
