Joggy CBD Supplements Review 2023

Cannabidiol, a non-toxic cannabinoid better known as CBD, has become a buzz ingredient in everything from beauty products to soda, and in the past several years, I’ve written about the best CBD bath products, the best CBD candies, the best tinctures, topicals, pre-made menus, and even Best CBD for dogs. This is still a fairly small percentage of I CBD products Maybe I wrote about it, having now received dozens of mails from brands with all kinds of promises including reducing stress, improving my sleep, and easing period pain.

In April 2022, Ty Haney, founder of Outdoor Voices, launched another such brand called Joggy, which is a line of CBD products or, as the website says, “plant-based energy for full-spectrum activity.” (This year, it also launched a sort of online platform where people can submit user feedback to brands and get an NFT in return, but that’s for another time.) Basically, the formulas are designed to be used before and after a workout. “Doing things” but with a hemp kick.

My experience with CBD products has been a bit all over the map, and I usually come across CBD in products meant to relax and unwind. Using CBD as an activity aid makes Joggy, as far as I know, a first in class (or at least an early entrant). I wasn’t sure how well that would work for me, but at least I can be confident it wasn’t whole snake oil because Joggy has an easily accessible Certificate of Analysis (aka COA). This is basically an independent lab test proving that what’s in the bottle actually matches what the brand puts on the label. Many CBD brands offer one, and if you don’t, you likely can’t trust the product. But even with that extra step of verification, results weren’t foolproof because I set out to test the entire line—which includes two dyes, two glues, and one balm—over seven days in November.

Joggy Runner's High

Runner’s High is meant to be taken pre-activity to help provide more energy and a mild sense of euphoria. In addition to CBD, this tincture also contains THCV, a cannabinoid that is supposed to create an energizing effect, and alpha-pinene, a terpene that is claimed to help you focus. The three ingredients together are supposed to create the “runner’s high” effect. In an Instagram story, I saw Hani describe it as providing a “slightly elevated flow state.”

I gulped one dropper of the tincture under my tongue, strapped on my skates, and headed outside. Runner’s High is “unfavorable,” but since the brand didn’t add anything to cover up the taste of the active ingredients, it’s a bit unpleasant. (You can add it to juice or coffee to mask the bitterness.) I was feeling a little tired, and it’s been a while since I’ve gone on a long ski run, so I was hoping the tincture would give me a much-needed boost. In general, tints are supposed to go on really quickly, and Joggy claims that the water-based lipid wrap is supposed to absorb faster than other oil-based tints. Unfortunately, I didn’t notice any changes in my mood or energy level at all.

Joggy joy stick

While skiing, I had a hard fall on concrete. I wear safety pads, but my upper arms and shoulders took the brunt of it, so I reached for a Joy Stick—Joggy Body Lotion that contains CBD, magnolia, bergamot, and arnica—to gently rub the area. It’s a solid stick housed in a very handsome refillable silver tube and has a slightly damp mint scent. Although I don’t like the scent as if I’ve just smoked some mint, I did notice an instant coolness, tingly sensation that reminded me of my grandmother’s Tiger Balm.

Joggy re-charges

Before bed, I took one Re-Chargies gum, which can be used after a workout or before bed to relax. It is flavored with hibiscus, which was a welcome change after the slightly gross flavor of Runner’s High.

Since the entire premise of Joggy is to aid in activity, I was a little surprised that there was such a relaxing CBD product, though I suppose it makes sense for those who feel wired after a workout. After an effort, I tend to fall into the “too tired to pass” camp, but I would never say no to a product that promises to improve sleep. All of the CBD I’ve tried in the past has been geared toward helping with sleep and relaxation anyway, so I’m interested to see how Joggy stacks up.

I woke up and liked that I slept well, and my arms didn’t bruise like I expected. I can’t say what ingredient did it on the bruise front: In addition to CBD, the Joy Stick contains old-school arnica, which I think helped a lot. But with a fall like this, I would normally expect a very painful blunt bruise, and I was impressed that the Joy Stick seemed to not only relieve pain, but also help with bruising. As for my well-rested mornings, I’ve taken a lot of melatonin in the past, and after Re-Chargies, I definitely wake up feeling groggy.

I decided to take advantage of the strangely warm autumn weather and go on another skiing. I take another dropper from The Runner’s High. As I slide down the bike path, I wonder if CBD is the reason for my good mood. Or is it just the regular endorphins I always get when I skate? Or is it sunlight? Or is it the changing leaves of autumn? After about an hour of skiing, I was hoping Runner’s High would give me significantly more energy – which I certainly don’t – and I regret not just drinking a cup of coffee.

I take two Re-Chargies before bed instead of just one. CBD doses can be tricky — too little and you won’t feel anything, too much and you risk overdoing it and ending up feeling drowsy or lethargic — and everyone’s body responds to it differently, so sometimes you need to experiment a bit to find the right amount. While Joggy suggests starting with one 25-milligram gummy, I find that for most CBD brands, 50-milligrams is my sweet spot, and after my success the first night, I go with two the second time around.

I wake up feeling really refreshed. I fell asleep much faster than usual and slept very peacefully.

Joggy is ready fixed

Joggy’s other tint, Ready Steady, is supposed to help relieve stress and have a calming effect, and is recommended for slower, more mindful activities like yoga or hiking. Ready Steady does not contain the THCV or Alpha Pinene that Runner’s High does, so the CBD does all the heavy lifting.

It’s small and goes down much easier than Runner’s High. I haven’t done yoga in a long time, so I’m queuing up a video. I feel great afterwards, but I’m not sure if it’s from the CBD or just my body remembering that yoga actually works when I bother to do it.

In the afternoon, during my usual 3 p.m. slump, I grab some Runner’s High in lieu of another cup of coffee. I get really tired trying to reply to emails, and I wish I just had coffee.

Before bed, I take two Re-Chargies, and it’s on the way to Dreamland.

Busy working and feeling a little nervous, so I take some Ready Steady dye to take the edge off. I can’t say I’m noticing any major changes, but the rest of the workday goes by smoothly — for that I can thank you for your consistent willingness.

Joggy Super Chargers

I was pretty overwhelmed today with exercise, but I had dinner to make after work, and by the evening I’m exhausted, so I took a couple of Super Charges—the latex equivalent of Runner’s High as they’re supposed to provide an invigorating effect—to see if it gave me a boost.

Chewing gum usually takes longer to kick in, than tinctures, because it has to be digested first. They also tend to last longer, although the effects can be milder. It really comes down to personal preference and scheduling. Since I’ll be at dinner longer than it usually takes to work out, I opted for the gum in the hopes that it would start as soon as I got there and last all evening. I think I’m feeling a little more alert, though the effects seem a bit mild. I’m also not sure if it’s because Super Chargies, in addition to CBD and THCV, contains an ingredient called AmaTea, which is a nootropic derived from guayusa leaf extract that is primarily caffeine.

After I get home from dinner, I take two Re-Chargies before bed. I have been sleeping so well and deeply that i have started keeping my tin on my nightstand next to all of my other bedtime essentials like lip balm, moisturizer, and fixative.

I wake up, and I’m a little tired from the festivities the night before, so I take some Runner’s High in the morning before doing a quick Pilates workout, because I find Pilates to be a more intense activity when compared to yoga. I don’t consider myself particularly sensitive to bitter flavors, but these are really hard to choke on, and I’m looking forward to eliminating them from my routine after today. While I haven’t noticed many effects before, I’ve heard that CBD works better when taken regularly, so I want to see if you notice anything new over time. Nothing yet.

I take two Re-Chargies before bed. Since there are only 20 gummies per pack, I get my supplies done quickly. I will miss my Joggy-induced sleep as soon as I run out. I woke up less during the night than usual, felt more awake in the morning, and didn’t have any weird CBD-induced dreams, which have happened to me in the past.

I decided to end my week how I started: with a dropper from Runner’s High. I was hoping, this time around, to finally feel that magical surge of endorphins and energy, but I ended up yawning during most of my workouts.

I’ve tried a lot of CBD brands in the past – gummies, flowers, tinctures – and had a wide range of effects. What I’ve learned is that the results are very personal to your own body. In the past, several tinctures I’ve tried have disappointed me (probably because I’m used to the instant hit of CBD pre-mades), so the fact that Runner’s High still doesn’t do things for me shouldn’t come as a surprise.

What was a surprise was the Joy Steak. By the end of the week, my arms felt so good that I really forgot I had a leak at all. And while it was technically my 7 days, I still faithfully took Re-Chargies before bed, and will continue to do so until I run out of them. Somehow my favorite product from a line designed for activity is something that puts me to sleep. But these days, getting a good night’s sleep is sometimes harder than mustering the energy to get a workout in, so I’ll take that as a win.
