Five Finger Death Punch vocalist Ivan Moody has unveiled a brand-new range of Cannabidiol (also known as CBD) wellness products.

Moody's Medicinals – a so-called "health and wellness innovator" run by Moody which launched in June this year – is said to "specialise" in "trailblazing, high-quality CBD products".

Moody's new range includes a selection of sugar-free shots – a raspberry lemonade to be taken in the morning, and a "calming" lemon iced tea to be taken in the afternoon – both of which are certified pure CBD.

The new products join the previously announced Moody’s Medicinals line, which includes a lemon-infused CBD water and a Peppermint throat potion spray available both with and without the added CBD.

"It became important for us to continue listening and innovate on all of the ways people have made Moody’s Medicinals a part of their lives," says Moody. "The AM and PM shots will not only complement the additional products I used to tame my anxiety, but they help me start and finish the day calm and focused."

Moody's struggles with alcoholism and mental health have been well-documented, with a number of Five Finger Death Punch sets having been cut short due to his explosive on-stage behaviour in recent years. The singer took a break from the band and joined a rehab programme in 2017

Having allegedly used CBD to "personally manage his anxiety symptoms, PTSD and OCD", Moody is said to have noticed a "gap in the marketplace concerning the extreme amounts of additives that competing brands used". So, he set about creating a brand of CBD wellness products that swerve sugars, alcohol, additives and a host of other things those concerned with wellness would probably rather avoid.

It's probably worth noting that the products come along with a lengthy disclaimer which states: "The Food and Drug Administration has not evaluated the statements made regarding these products. The efficacy of these products has not been confirmed by FDA-approved research. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. All information presented here is not a substitute for or alternative to information from healthcare practitioners."
