Sunday Scaries || Talking all about CBD with Mike Sill, co-founder of the coolest CBD edible around

CBD is the

I said it last year & I’ll say it again.

I’m a major fan of using CBD oil to curb my anxiety & stress. It’s one that helps alleviate mine on the daily. I’ve been experimenting with it for the past two years and it’s something I truly believe in. I find it as calming as a glass of the right tea {another go to of mine when I am stressed}

From my last post, I’ve had many questions from so many people which is AWESOME. Seriously, I love it. This is one of my favourite topics to blog about so it makes me jazzed that you want to hear more.

People want to know more about CBD, and I cannot blame them. CBD is about to be all the rage in 2018.

To put it bluntly, it’s getting all the amazing benefits from the cannabis plant without the psychoactive high.

In fact, Bon Appetit just wrote a very well written article about it here – check it out!


lifestyle blogger / influencer, shannon silver, talks her favourite cbd product: Sunday Scaries!

Anyways, I partnered with one of my favourite CBD gummy companies: Sunday Scaries.

Over the past month, the Sunday Scaries gummies have seriously been a lifesaver.

To be a little vulnerable, life has been crazy over the past few weeks. I’ve been swamped with work {& this week and the last few weeks have been the busiest I have ever been, hence the radio silence on the blog}, as well as a ton of personal changes. I can’t wait to share everything in the next few weeks but stress levels and anxiety have been at an all time high. There are a lot of uncertainties and my anxiety has been higher than ever. Everything is exciting, yes, but there are major { good! } changes coming my way & one of my weaknesses is that I don’t handle stress well & tend to let anxiety take me over. I’m at a point too where time is going SO FAST yet SO SLOW. Does this make any sense?! Well let me tell you, it’s a major mindfuck.

These gummies have seriously kept my feet on the ground & anchored while my head has been in another planet. They have brought me and kept me back to earth. Not only do they taste amazing, but they are fast acting and will put your mind at ease. I promise.

Each gummy has 10 mg of CBD. There are NO THC in these, so they cannot & will not get you high. They are fully legal in every state, so wherever you are in the US, you can order these! I know I have a lot of Texas followers, so these CAN be shipped there – or anywhere!

I love them because they have two of my favourite feel good vitamins: D & B12. B12 is a personal favourite energy source of mine, so taking these with my super elixir in the morning before work has been a game changer.

I’m pretty stoked because today, I have one of the founders here on the blog, Mike Sill! He’s a super rad dude & if you’re in San Diego, be sure to check out his bar, The Brew Project.

Now let’s get into it and talk CBD with Mike & why his gummies are legit that rad.

Hi Mike!! So stoked to have you here. Introduce yourself!

My name is Mike Sill and my business partner’s name is Beau Schmitt. I am from Pasadena, California and Beau is from Edmonds, Washington outside of Seattle. We both went to school at the University of San Diego and also co-own a bar called “The Brew Project” in San Diego.

Here we specialize in elevated bar food, local craft beer and cocktails on draft. It also serves as the incubator for the birth of Sunday Scaries.

How did Sunday Scaries come to be? What’s the story behind it and what made you want to get in the cannabis industry?

Sunday Scaries came to be when Beau and I were deciding on opening another bar. Brick and mortar businesses are extremely stressful, especially when it comes to the hospitality industry, and we were consistently taking CBD in different forms in order to deal with the daily anxieties of running a business and starting a new one.

We also like to work hard and play harder, so when Sunday would come around we would peek into our gmail inboxes and immediately start to dread the impending doom of Monday, when we would inevitably get tsunami’d by all the work that was stacking up over the weekend.

We wanted to eliminate our moral hangover and uneasiness, we wanted to take our Sundays back. So we did our research and started developing a product.

In your words, who is the Sunday Scaries customer?

The Sunday Scaries customers are the socialites, party goers, college students and young professionals who want a natural and healthy alternative for anxiety relief.

They want to have an edge over the daily anxieties that intrude their lives so they can focus on what they are passionate about and being happy.

lifestyle blogger / influencer, shannon silver, interviews the founder of Sunday Scaries, Mike Sill! The CBD edibles are amazing.

I wrote a post about CBD here but would love to hear it from you. Can you explain CBD more and some of the benefits?

CBD is a miracle compound, it does everything. I personally take it as a workout recovery, for sleep aid, for blemish control/skin care, as an anti-inflammatory and most notably, for anxiety.

CBD is a natural compound derived from the hemp and marijuana plants. CBD is THC’s non-psychoactive sister {it will not get you high} but it comes with a multitude of health benefits and therapeutic properties. Any personal CBD stories?

I use CBD as a secret weapon when playing golf every weekend. In the past, I would often get jitters and have anxiety before starting a round of golf. Uncertainties and self-doubts like “did I drink too much last night” or “will I forget what I learned on the golf range” or “will i become frustrated and start playing like shit” would enter my thought process.

These anxieties would self-prophecize into realities and I would actually end up chunking shots and duffing puts because I was in my own head. Now I take CBD and I’m able to go out and have a fun, relaxing time and let my skills and training take over for a successful round.

What are the most common misconceptions of CBD?

One of the biggest challenges with educating the consumer is letting them know that it WILL NOT get you high.

Many people associate all cannabinoids with being like THC and often overlook all the other attributes.

What separates your CBD edible from all the others?

Our CBD gummies, Sunday Scaries, are custom formulated for anxiety. We incorporate vitamins B-12 and D-3 as mood boosters and to increase the bio-availiablity of the 10mg of CBD per gummy.

The gummies taste amazing and they are manufactured with consistent dosing to ensure reliable efficacy every time.

& your favourite reason to take Sunday Scaries?

To not deal with the daily bullshit of anxiety!

Life is hard enough and I’d rather not deal with obsessing over hypothetical situations. I sometimes find myself manifesting worries that don’t actually exist, and CBD not only helps eliminate these from starting but also helps me focus on what really matters and not paying attention to them.

What’s next for Sunday Scaries? Any other products in the works?

Right now we are working hard to spread the word about the gummies and get feedback from all of our users. BUT, expect more products in the near future for sure. Follow our insta and join our email list to stay tuned. {you can also leave your e-mail in the comments if you want to be added}

Since you have a dope beer pub, what beer is rocking your world right now? Any CBD beers?

Favorite beer right now is Eppig’s Factory of Dreams IPA. All of their beers kick ass but that one is liquid gold. We don’t have any CBD beers on but we just launched our CBD cocktails on draft program. The CBD vodka lemonade is a game changer, especially when hung over. 

Because I ask everyone 🙂 favourite song?

Wow, tough one. Asking for a favorite song is like asking for a favorite beer! It all depends on mood, scenario, food pairing, weather, season, etc. But, gun to my head, I’ll go with Steely Dan “Reelin’ in the Years” or anything Tupac.

friendly reminder: I am NOT a doctor nor am I an expert on the cannabis industry. I indulge in it daily so I can speak from experience, but again, I am not a trained professional – though I’ll admit, I research more and more everyday as I want to know as much as I can. I am sharing what has worked for me.
