Episode 134 – CBeerD and hunger pangs

Episode 134. No guests. And technically no sponsors. BUT….we did receive samples of a CBD/Beer product to review. That product is called…wait for it…CBeerD.

What makes us qualified to review CBD products? Nothing. We’re CBD virgins. Maybe that’s why we’re qualified. But it was fun. Check out CBeerD.co. Try some whilst listening to us ramble about units of lengths, state borders, Ben Affleck, and engagement photos. All while drinking beverages from Kros Strain, Dillon Dam Brewery and Glacial Till.
