The Lowdown

To take a Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade Flavored CBD Powder, you just tear an edge of the packet and dump it in your mouth. The taste is lemony perfection — a little tart, a little sweet, and the powder dissolves very quickly, so it’s not like I’m left with a pile of sugary powder on my tongue that I have to suck on to absorb. It’s nice.

In about 10 to 15 minutes after taking one, I feel more relaxed and a bit less stressed. I feel like my hunched shoulder muscles loosen a bit, and I feel … good. But most importantly, I feel completely clear-headed and able to work, just calmer. And for me, that’s a very, very good thing.

Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade Flavored CBD Powder Review: Convenient, Fast Dissolving, and It Tastes Great Listen to this article

I’ve taken CBD supplements for a couple of years, and doing so has made it easier to manage aches and pains and daily stress. I’ve tried various CBD softgels and tinctures, but I’m not always fond of the way they taste. Caliper’s flavored CBD powder Swiftsticks are fast-acting CBD powder that’s clinically verified as THC-free; even better, it actually tastes great. For summer, they’ve released limited edition Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade flavored CBD powder packets; they’re the perfect daily supplement that you’ll actually look forward to taking.

You’ve likely seen CBD being sold and everywhere from your local gas station, the grocery store, the CBD stores that are popping up in strip malls everywhere, and online. You may wonder what the hype is all about and if it is something you should try, if it is even something that can help you, or if it’s just the latest health fad.

So let’s start with what CBD is and what it is supposed to actually do.

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a cannabinoid—one of more than 100 compounds unique to the cannabis family of plants. It’s extracted from hemp, one strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for industrial use. Cannabinoids like CBD are powerful compounds that play a key role in the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex regulatory system in the body that oversees a wider range of physiological and cognitive systems—including the nervous system, digestive system, and immune system.

Within the ECS there are specific receptor sites on cells throughout the body, and cannabinoids interact with these receptors to produce different effects. While we still have a lot to learn about those effects, the ECS is involved in many aspects of your body’s functions, emotions, and well-being, including pain perception, inflammation, sleep regulation, appetite and digestion, stress response, and more. CBD’s actions appear to be associated with general wellness, such as relaxation and relief of everyday aches or stresses. – from What is CBD and Why is it Everywhere?

CBD does not contain THC, as it is extracted from hemp — which by law is defined as any cannabis plant containing less than 0.3% THC — it doesn’t have psychoactive effects. On top of that, according to a report from the World Health Organization, CBD has not been found to have the potential for abuse or dependence.

While the FDA continues to evaluate the regulatory frameworks that they might put into place for products containing cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds, they “encourage consumers to think carefully before exposing themselves, their family, or their pets, to any product, especially products like CBD, which may have potential risks, be of unknown quality, and have unproven benefits.” The FDA has also pointed out that some CBD products are being “marketed with unproven medical claims and could be produced with unsafe manufacturing practices.”

This underscores the importance that as consumers, we do our due diligence and confirm that the manufacturer of any CBD product that we considering purchasing and ingesting is putting out a safe product, is exactly what it says it is, and that it has a consistent quality in which each batch produced is independently tested by a third-party.

That brings us to Caliper.

Caliper is all-in on ensuring that “every batch of Caliper CBD is tested by accredited third-party labs to ensure safety, quality, and consistency.” To that end, they make it easy to look up the Certificate of Analysis that identifies each batch’s results for CBD content, the absence of THC, and unwanted contaminants. When you buy a Caliper product, you can enter its batch number on this page, and they will deliver a downloadable .pdf that shows the lab results for the exact CBD you have.

So why are all of Caliper’s products made in the form of water-soluble powders? Because they are convenient, able to be precisely measured, and more bioavailable, they are better able to be absorbed by your body.

In a study conducted at Colorado State University, Caliper CBD powder was shown to be 4.5 times more bioavailable than standard CBD oils.

You can ingest Caliper’s flavored CBD Swiftsticks powders by dropping them directly on your tongue — kind of like a pixie stick for grownups that doesn’t leave you with a sugar hangover. They also make unflavored CBD powders that you can mix into food or beverages. My husband Kev is particularly fond of those.

So let’s talk about the Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade CBD Powder I received to try.

Usually, when you buy Caliper Swifsticks, the packets come inside a bag. This limited edition Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade came in a cute little reusable tin.

Inside, there are 3o individual packets, so about a month’s supply.

Opening a Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade Flavored CBD Powder packet

Simply tear off the end and dump the flavored CBD powder in your mouth.

Remember how I mentioned that every Caliper product has a batch number and that you can enter that batch number to get a .pdf showing the lab results for the exact CBD you have? That batch number is printed on the bottom of the tin that the Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade CBD Powder comes in, and it is also printed on every packet inside the tin.

My particular batch number is 21137123; entering that number into their form returns these lab results. I appreciate their transparency! I don’t know about you, but I like knowing exactly what I am putting into my body.

If you’re used to taking your CBD as a tincture or oil that you have to put under your tongue or as a gummy or soft gel, you will enjoy the flexibility that going to a dissolvable powder gives you. Caliper’s CBD powder packets are small, light, and very conveniently portable. I don’t have to carry a bottle or container around; I can just keep a couple of packets in my purse for when needed.

The powders don’t freeze or thicken with cold temperatures as oils can, and the powder won’t melt in the heat as some gummies will. Best of all, the flavored Swiftsticks taste good and are fast-acting.

If you’ve never tried CBD before, Caliper Swiftsticks are a great place to start. You’ll know exactly what you are getting, and you’ll know exactly what you are putting in your body. If you’re interested in trying the Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade flavor, you had better order some soon; since it is a limited edition, once it’s gone, it’s gone. But the Mixed Berry, Cool Mint, and Lemon Lime flavor Swiftsticks are excellent, too.

The Caliper Swiftsticks Lemonade Flavored CBD Powder retails for $49.99; it will be available for a limited time available directly from the manufacturer.

I've had a fascination with all types of gadgets and gizmos since I was a child, beginning with the toy robot that my grandmother gave my brother - which I promptly "relieved him of" in 1973. I'm a self-professed gadget magpie. I can't tell you how everything works, but I'm known world-wide for using a product until I have a full understanding of what it does, what its limitations are, and if it excels in any given area — or not.
