Smell (Irrelevant to effects):
The shot smells fruity and citrusy, reflective of the fruit punch flavor it advertises. Notes of strawberry, pineapple, and maraschino cherry sweeten up the tangy citrus notes of lemon and orange. There is a notable tartness to the finish, similar to Shock Tarts but a bit milder.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects):
The sweetness of the strawberry and pineapple flavors come first, followed by the tang of lemon and orange. There is a subtle bitterness to the aftertaste, but it isn’t pronounced and doesn’t last long. We didn’t find the flavor of the Max Chill Shot off-putting, but if you’re really averse to it, take solace in the fact that there isn’t much to swallow.
The product is free-flowing and not at all viscous, preventing it from adhering to the soft tissues of the mouth and making for quick and easy swallowing. It is bright red in color, so be careful not to spill the product on clothing or upholstery as it may be difficult to remove.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity):
Since it’s an oral product, the Max Chill CBD Shot will take a little while to kick in. We felt effects about 35-40 minutes after taking it, and when we did, we felt them. Since the shot contains 75 mg of CBD total, you can consume the whole bottle in one go or take half and save the rest for later. Either way, the effects will be pronounced and intense once you feel them.
We felt a marked, deep relaxation after taking this shot. Mentally, we were calmer and more at ease, with a general sense of well-being. Physically, we noticed that our tension melted away and our joint and muscle pain diminished, pretty much entirely. We felt the effect of this shot for about 8-10 hours. We were more relaxed and pain-free, and we experienced relief from anxiety and insomnia. When we slept, our sleep was deeper and we experienced fewer interruptions.
Best used for:
Because of the high dosage of CBD in this product, it’s best used when you find yourself in need of serious symptom relief. We don’t recommend taking it during the day unless you routinely take very high doses of CBD, as it may make you drowsy. That said, it is ideal for anxiety and pain relief. It can also be used for an intense dose of anti-inflammatory CBD to combat joint pain associated with weather changes or injury. It would also be especially good for people suffering from intense anxiety, panic attacks, or insomnia.
However, we should make a note of possible contraindications: first, the high sugar content of the shot (nearly 10% of your daily value in the entire bottle) means it isn’t especially friendly to diabetics or those consumers seeking to monitor their carb intake. Second, the proprietary blend of L-Theanine, N-acetyl-5-methoxy tryptamine, GABA, Passiflora, and White Willow Bark may not be suitable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Talk to your physician if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or attempting to become pregnant before using the Max Chill Relaxation CBD Shot.
Best used with (Complimentary Product):
Since this is a systemic product, it will deliver a powerful dose of CBD throughout your body. However, if you find yourself in need of targeted pain relief, consider a mentholated pain rub to alleviate pain at the site while the shot works its way through your system to decrease the surrounding inflammation.
At $14.99 per bottle (which contains 75 mg of organic CBD), this shot isn’t cheap and is probably best reserved for emergency symptom management for most of us. This works out to about $0.20 per milligram, which isn’t unreasonable for an oral product. The cost is more related to the high dose of CBD in the product than to excessive markups.
The Max Chill CBD Shots are also available in packs of 5, which brings the cost down to roughly $12 per shot, or $0.16 per milligram. If you find yourself routinely in need of a high-dosage CBD product to alleviate intense, persistent symptoms, buying in bulk can save you some money.
Relative to its competitors in the THC-free CBD sphere, we really like this shot from Hemp Bombs. It is effective, reasonably priced, and meets our CBD Buyer’s Guide standards for quality and purity. Of the high-dosage products available on the market, this is one of our favorites.
