My Review of CBD and Non CBD, Vegan Products
I had the pleasure of learning about Vasayo; a company that is transforming lives physically, financially, and socially through superior delivery of products, opportunity, and community. I had an opportunity to review a few of their CBD and non-CBD, vegan products.
A little on the company before the review. Vasayo’s objective in this industry is to bless the lives of 1 million people by establishing 1,000 clean water wells within African communities through their Hearts and Hands for Humanity initiative:
“Hearts and Hands for Humanity provides clean water to communities in Africa using an innovative tool: The Center Earth Drill, which can drill up to 250 feet below the earth’s surface, creating wells that reach clean water buried underground.”
“100% of Vasayo Brand Partner donations go toward providing clean water to African communities—no administrative costs or salaries are taken out.”
With locations in the United States, Thailand, Taiwan, and Hong Kong; and products like CBD oil, CBD mental wellness packs, and CBD nutrition packs- Vasayo has a product for just about every need. The team at Vasayo is a vibrant ecosystem full of dreamers, doers, entrepreneurs, and families offering life changing products.
I consumed the V- shake, chocolate vegan option. It’s definitely chocolatey which is great and a little chalky which I am used to. Chalky is typical with vegan protein shakes because there’s no whey in them. Whey comes from diary and gives protein powders more of a creamy texture.
I blended with almond milk and added a little bit of a seed blend for extra fiber and omegas. I sweetened it a bit with agave. It filled me up for quite a few hours and I enjoyed it while sipping. The chalkiness is tolerable when mindful of the benefits in the protein powder:
- Fava bean
- Mung bean
- Digestive enzyme blend
- 25 grams of protein
It’s not at all overly sweet which is why I added a little bit of agave; I have a natural sweet tooth so I wanted it to be more of a milkshake. For people that don’t have a sweet tooth- it’s sweet enough on its own without the addition of sweetener. The chocolate V-shake made me feel really great afterwards and it is a protein shake that I would drink again.
The CBD One cream is great! It’s made to soothe tired and stiff muscles. It is a medium thick texture and it has a bit of a cooling sensation. Its relief is almost immediate and was good for my repetitive stress injury. Though there is the cooling sensation, the scent of menthol isn’t overbearing. The topical smells a little minty, but not overwhelming. It really helped ease up the information with just a little bit of a sample.
The CBD One oil was a sample size and not enough for my tolerance to really evaluate the impact. I usually consume 50MG of CBD at once and so, I can’t give insight on impact but I will say that the flavor is tolerable, it’s broad spectrum so- THC free, and made in the U.S- from plant to packaging.
