Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody completed his first year without a drop of alcohol back in March 2019, and he will attest that a big player in his recovery has been the results of his CBD product line, Moody’s Medicinals.
CBD (or cannabidiol) is the chemical compound that is the second most prevalent ingredient of the marijuana plant. CBD derives from the hemp plant, a cousin to the marijuana plant, meaning it does not cause a “high” like the chemical compound THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Often used as the main component in medicinal marijuana, CBD has been found to aid in pain relief, anxiety, insomnia, other health benefits.

While Moody continues to maintain his sobriety, he still deals with anxiety and OCD. However, he says he uses his own CBD waters and throat sprays to calm his nerves before a show. “It tames my anxiety before, during, and after my performances. And it comes in handy when I’m winding down from being on the road.”
“Being in recovery and avoiding any and all alcohol, I found myself limited to things I could use on the road, especially on tour. For example, any throat sprays out there, the only options are sugar-based. But I’ve witnessed other singers’ use these products with little to no results.”

But a line of CBD products isn’t some jaded rockstar cash-grab. Moody strongly believes that they can have a significant impact on anyone looking to manage their anxiety. “These products helped me, and I stand behind them. I want to share that. I want Moody’s Medicinals to reach everyone. I think this could help many people who are willing to try it for 2 weeks or more, including veterans, and anyone experiencing anxiety.”
On top of aiding in the recovery of others, Moody also plans on donating a portion of the proceeds to worthy charities like St. Jude Children’s Hospital, the Wounded Warrior Project, and the Children of Fallen Police Officers Foundation.
