Have you heard of this new thing called CBD Oil?

If not, where have you been?


CBD Oil is EVERYWHERE.  It’s quickly become the hottest supplement out there. From lotions, protein powder, drinks and straight up in oil form, you can get your daily dose anyway you like it.

If you know what it is and how it works and are just here for the CBD Thin Mint Energy Bites recipe, feel free to scroll on down to the bottom of this page.

But if you have no idea what it is or how it’s different from marijuana, Barlean’s broke it down for you in this easy to follow guide.


So what benefits can you get from taking CBD Oil?  There’s not a ton of clinical research on the benefits (Yet, I’m sure it’s coming) but for now, it’s more subjective reports. I have a few friends who have been taking CBD Oil for awhile and swear that it helps with anxiety and sleep.  It can also help with recovery from hard workouts by fighting inflammation.

In all honesty, I didn’t really think much of CBD until Barlean’s contacted me about their oil. It seemed like a fad and there’s so many different products/brands of CBD that it was hard to know what was legit or not. I use Barlean’s products all the time. It’s a company I trust since they’ve been making healthy oils and supplements for nearly 30 years. They know their stuff!

Barlean’s sent me a bottle of their Seriously Delicious CBD Hemp Oil and Extra Strength Ideal CBD Hemp Oil. This was my first “taste” of CBD.  I’ve been taking it for about 2 weeks.

Do I notice any changes?  Maybe.  I feel like my recovery from my two hard mountain runs were relatively ache free. In the past, my feet would ache when I’d wake up first thing in the morning after a hard run.  That’s gone. Maybe I’m getting stronger. Maybe it’s the CBD.  I don’t know. I’ll report back in a few more weeks if there’s any other changes.

Barlean’s CBD Hemp Oil’s can be taken straight up by itself or mixed into anything else (just as long as it’s not heated above 225 degrees Fahrenheit. When I saw the Seriously Delicious CBD Hemp Oil in Chocolate Mint flavor, I immediately thought of Thin Mints. It’s not my favorite Girl Scout cookie (Tagalong FTW), but a close second. And there’s chocolate so it’s all good.

Enjoy these easy and seriously delicious CBD Thin Mint Energy Bites for a quick after workout snack or any other time during the day.  With only five ingredients, it’s easy to whip up a batch to have on hand every week.

I’ll give you fair warning: once you have one, it’s hard to stop.

  1. So i honestly thought that this whole CBD thing was just voodoo until i tried it with my PF. I had tried everything under the sun for a solid year. Within a couple of weeks, my PF was pretty much gone just by using it twice a day on the bottoms of feet. I was shocked and now i am sold!

  2. I love the graphic next to “will it make me high?” LOL!! I’m not sold that CBD does much of anything but then I read the above comment and think “maybe?” I tried putting oil directly on my tounge and it tasted horrible so these bites sound infinitely better!! I’ve also tried CBD products as lotion (that I love because it’s like Ben Gay without the stink!) and a lip balm which is just soothing but not really life changing. I MAY try these if I can figure out the dates…

    1. I had to laugh at it too but it’s legit. You know some people are thinking it’s straight up weed. I’ve been taking it straight up on my tongue. It doesn’t taste great but it’s not that bad. You’d probably like the chocolate mint better because – chocolate and mint. The dates thing is so easy. Put them in a bowl, cover with warm water, let it sit for 10 minutes, dump the water out and toss in the food processor/blender. It’s just a way to soften the dates so they break up easier. You’ve got this Allie! 🙂

  3. Those looks delicious. I will try to make one for myself, I hope soon. I’ve been reading a lot of good things about CBD oil and enjoying it with food is just yum.
