Founded by former athletes, Beam is a trusted CBD brand that uses nano CBD for a wide variety of products. Everything Beam makes is THC-free, but their proprietary method eliminates that cannabinoid while preserving CBD and other beneficial cannabinoids like CBG, or cannabigerol, and terpenes.
Beam also sells multiple products that pair CBD with adaptogens for optimal benefits. While Beam’s products might lie on the pricier side, the quality and effectiveness are almost unmatched. The company uses CO2 extraction for all of their products, which is one of the cleanest and most effective methods.
More of a lifestyle and wellness brand, it’s easy to incorporate Beam products into your everyday life. Their products range from 500-2000mg per package, providing higher doses than other CBD brands that are more for show. Beam makes products to achieve certain effects, like Clarity, Revive, Dream, and Boost.
The brand has a pretty large presence on Instagram and is a favorite among wellness bloggers, but it’s refreshing that the PR they receive is actually worth it, versus many other brands in the space who sacrifice effectiveness for trendiness.
Beam provides the perfect array of products, meaning you could fulfill all your CBD needs with this brand alone. Their doses are also much more appropriate for relief and effectiveness than other brands in the same market. For this review, we tried their salve, tincture, adaptogen blend, and capsules. I particularly loved the mint flavor of their tincture. Beam’s packaging is simple yet effective – doesn’t make it seem like you’re consuming cannabis at all, which is a plus for some.
Beam’s Clarity CBD + Adaptogen Blend with 20mg CBD per serving works wonders, and is extremely easy to use! You can mix it into 6-8 ounces of whatever liquid you desire, or add to coffee, smoothies, and more.
The Fixer CBD Salve (500mg)
Beam’s aptly-named “The Fixer” CBD salve is the perfect solution for soreness and fatigue whenever you need it. Each 1 ounce container contains 500mg CBD and is $60 which is a bit steep, especially if you are more active and use the product more often. The cannabinoids in the salve are absorbed through the skin for almost immediate relief. Beam boosts the effectiveness of the product even more by including lavender and eucalyptus essential oils, which have been known for their calming effects.
The Fixer is a topical salve that can be rubbed on areas of soreness or fatigue. I found the product to have an immediate effect, despite there being no tingling sensation like other salves I’ve tried. I used this product the day after a long few hours on the golf course, and definitely experienced promised relief. I will say I felt the effects wore off somewhat quickly, so you might need to keep applying.
Beam’s Clarity blend combines CBD with adaptogens like Lion’s Mane for brain function and memory, Rhodiola for endurance and energy, and Ashwagandha to balance stress. The blend is perfect for improving focus and mental energy, which makes it great for taking in the morning. However, you can consume this product at any time of day – just mix with 6-8 ounces of liquid, or add to smoothies, coffee, and more. This product is unlike any I’ve tried, in a good way. At $3.30 per dose, it might be a little steep, but not if adaptogens are already part of your wellness plan.
I’ve always heard that CBD and adaptogens are more effective when combined, but I had never experienced it. Now, I get what they mean. I added the Clarity blend to a 1pm iced coffee that I probably shouldn’t have made, but was pleasantly surprised to feel absolutely no caffeine jitters like I normally do. The flavor of the blend is kind of earthy from the Lion’s Mane and Ashwagandha, but was essentially tasteless when mixed with coffee. I love that the product comes in a resealable pouch for easy storing.
Beam’s Revive capsules are filled with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant elements like green tea, turmeric, black pepper, and white willow bark, in addition 10mg water soluble nano CBD per serving. Intended to initiate physical repair within the body, these capsules can be taken any time of day. This is the type of product that you might need to take for an extended period of time in order to feel its benefits. Each dose works out to be around $2.50, which is a bit on the pricey side, especially since it can be an everyday type of product.
I loved the look of this product before I tried it! These Revive capsules come in a sleek frosted jar, perfect for storing with your vitamins. The product is intended to help repair muscles and reduce inflammation. Because of this, it’s hard to feel anything specific after consuming – this is the type of product you would benefit from taking consistently over time. This product seems like it could get kind of expensive after a while, but the effectiveness could be worth it.
Beam’s The One CBD Oil comes in 4 different strengths and two flavors. This product is a sublingual tincture, so it’s absorbed into the bloodstream under the tongue, meaning you feel relief almost immediately. Since the product has a measured dropper, it’s easier to dose up if you’re looking to increase your consumption. This product can be taken any time of day – if in the morning, it can help improve digestion, and if taken at night it can help with sleep. Each dose shakes out to $3, but the tincture is high strength so it makes sense.
This tincture is an all-in-one solution for overall wellness. Featuring Beam’s proprietary broad spectrum nano CBD solution, this tincture is extremely clean and pure. I particularly enjoyed the mint flavor – the tincture almost acted like a breath mint from how fresh it tasted. The measured dropper makes it easy to consume a precise dose, which you can just drop right under your tongue, or add to your favorite coffee, matcha, smoothie, or more.
