IF YOU'RE FEELING BOMBARDED by CBD, blame the 2018 Farm Bill. Yes, this humdrum-sounding piece of government legislation is partially responsible for the fertilization of what is now a booming industry around all things CBD.

CBD, for all you non-Farm-Bill readers, is shorthand for "cannabidiol," and you're correct in noticing that that word shares seven letters with the word "cannabis." And although many manufacturers of CBD products often include a huge weed leaf in their marketing, CBD won't get you high. In fact, it may have the opposite effect.

Cannabinoids are cannabis-dervied chemicals that interact with your endocannabinoid systemin ways that scientists are still figuring out, but largely speculate may have calming effects.

Researchers (and CBD companies) are hopeful that cannabidiol may help manage physical pain, sleeplessness, and relaxation. However—and this is important to note—there is currently no firm, clinical evidence that CBD does anything at all. This is not to say that its ineffective, it's just that the marketing outpaces the current state of the research.

And that marketing includes a slew of products. There are CBD protein bars. There are CBD gummies. There are CBD oils, capsules, moisturizers, waters, cold brew coffees, and even (ahem) sexual lubricants.

To sort through this wild new world of CBD products, we at Men’s Health turned ourselves into a group of study participants and sampled anything we could find that featured cannabidiol as an ingredient.

Many of the products we tasted failed to produce a meaningful effect. But there were a few that exceeded our expectations. These are our winners of the first-ever Men's Health CBD Awards.
