When I first received my medical card, I wanted to try every single product on the dispensary menu. Not much has changed. Those first weeks, I stuck with what worked best for my medicinal needs, which was how the “Work Sativa” review series started. But as time passed and more new items appeared, I expanded my search for better medicinal relief to edibles, concentrates, and vapes. But one product I had been interested in reviewing for weeks but just never added it to my preorder was the Momentum capsules by Progressive Treatment Solutions. My first reaction after taking them: I wish I had done it sooner.
I enjoyed the Momentum capsules so much that when I searched NuMed Urbana’s menu for more and noticed PTS also manufactured Chill Pills and Night Caps capsules, I added all three to my cart. I’m partial to the idea of having a set of morning, day, and night medications, whether that’s with capsules, joints, concentrates, or edibles. And PTS has created a perfect trio of morning, day, and night medications with these three products. I should have done a separate review for each product but didn’t want to break them apart, because for me, the trio go together.
After purchasing the Momentum capsules, I was not sure when would be the best time to take them. I don’t usually enjoy edibles early in the day, but I took two 10mg capsules in preparations for a family cookout. Usually, two 10mg gummies are enough to get me going, but with the first half hour, I could tell the Momentum capsules were different. The Momentum capsules had the strongest energetic buzz I have had with edibles.
The pills are created with a sativa strain coupled with vitamins, minerals and electrolytes to help keep alert, focused and positive. Each capsule contains 30mg Potassium Bicarbonate, 20mg Magnesium Citrate, 8mg Sodium Citrate, 5mg Zinc Citrate, 5mg Vitamin B3, 2mcg Vitamin B6, 1mcg Vitamin B12, and 10mg THC. And they are my new favorite cannabis product right now.
They were great for chatting and eating at the cookout and continued an energetic sensation even after the THC wore off. The also worked well for when I woke up groggy with several deadlines scheduled throughout the day. Taking one capsule to kick-start the day was similar to drinking a cup of coffee. Drinking a cup of coffee and taking one capsule had me meeting deadlines early.
But the best application I found for the Momentum capsules was to take one before physical labor. The combination of energy and muscle relaxation allowed me to physically perform at a higher function for a longer period of time. If possible, I will have a bottle of the Momentum capsules in my medicine drawer at all times for the three situations I just mentioned. Patients who already have anxiety should be careful with these or skip them altogether and take the Chill Pills instead.
The Chill Pills are a hybridized distillate with lavender and chamomile essentials oils works to improve an overall mental state and deliver a comfortable body high. They are perfect for binging shows, game night, late-night talks with friends, and any other activity I want to chill while doing.
Instead of the edgy energy of the Momentum capsules, the Chill Pills have a euphoric head high with a body buzz that feels like your gliding. Each capsule contains 25mg Lavender oil, 17mg Chamomile extract and 10mg THC. I also really enjoyed two long music listening sessions (along with reading the lyrics) while relaxing on the Chill Pills. Really, these capsules fit any activity that goes better with chilling.
Out of the three PTS capsules, I had my doubts about the Night Caps because I like to enjoy the buzz that edibles deliver. I don’t mind falling asleep at the backend of a buzz, but I don’t want to waste three hours of a buzz sleeping. I usually time my night medication so I can fall asleep a few hours later. However, the other night, my mind was racing after meeting several late deadlines, and I took one Night Caps capsule and found it surprisingly better than I expected.
When I finally hit the bed, my mind calmed instead of racing thoughts about the 4,000 words I’d just written or the fifty photos I edited through. Each capsule’s blend of 2mg melatonin and 10mg THC of the finest indica strains work well for the end-of-the-night knockout buzz with an unanticipated happy high. Again, the Night Caps, Chill Pills, and Momentum capsules all serve a specific function. It’s not like I’m going to take one Momentum capsule in the morning, one Chill Pills capsule in the evening, and one Night Caps capsule at nigh each and every day. But I will keep them in stock for when I really need the fantastic affects the three capsules are capable of delivering. These PTS capsules have already been one of those unexpected benefits of a healthier lifestyle for me because a legal cannabis industry.
