Game of Thrones is one of the most popular TV franchises of all time, leaving its mark on countless viewers and quickly solidifying its place in the TV Hall of Fame—right up there with the Sopranos and Golden Girls.
A large part of the show’s success lies in its incredible, fleshed-out world. With such a vast pool of detail to pull from, courtesy of the lengthy epics written by George R. R. Martin, the show manages to establish a world within your TV set, which in turn allows the show’s vast collection of characters to feel better explored.
Of course, that’s not to say that these characters are an open book. The show and its literary source do miss out on a few opportunities to explore aspects of the characters that fans are interested in.
For example, one question that’s been running through our minds is with all the stress of betrayals, murders, and double-crossings…
Which characters could have used a touch of the old CBD?
After much research, here are our thoughts…
1. Jon Snow
Every Game of Thrones list should start off with Jon Snow. He’s great in every way and that’s just an objective fact. Born Aegon Targaryen, Snow’s true identity is hidden in favor of his status as a member of the Stark family. In order to escape the “bastard” title that has attached itself to his name, Snow joins the Night’s Watch, where he quickly rises up the ranks and eventually becomes Lord Commander.
Throughout the series, Jon grasps at opportunities to show his worth, and he even proves his kingliness when showing sympathy to the free folk in an effort to unite the people of the north against a single, larger-the-life foe: the Night King.
Jon, of course, is no stranger to heartbreak and ridicule. Outside of being the Stark family’s designated bastard child for years, he also runs into a plethora of difficult decisions and has to fight through the deaths of many of his family members. Oh yeah, and he also dies for a little while; talk about having a rough go of things.
We think Jon could use a CBD product with a guaranteed wellness boost to get him through each day. That’s why our Wellness 2:1 CBD + CBG Tincture is perfect for him! This tincture combines high-quality CBD hemp extract with CBG, Curcumin and Coenzyme Q10 for the ultimate CBD experience, and while it wouldn’t have prevented him from kicking the bucket after that little jerk stabs him, it would give him a nice push in the right direction once he came back to life.
Hodor is the simple giant whose immense strength and stature are only matched by his undying loyalty to the Stark family. While he begins the story as a stable-boy, he quickly becomes Bran Stark’s preferred form of transportation, and he keeps the young boy safe throughout much of their journey together. His simple nature is the result of a seizure that he suffered from as a child which, in the convoluted manner of GOT, was actually caused by Bran Stark’s use of his Third Eye powers on Hodor’s adult self.
A specimen of pure might, Hodor’s lack of a functioning brain is made up tenfold by his incredible strength and build. As a result, much of Hodor’s usefulness is tied to his ability to carry, lift, and push things. The physical fatigue he experiences has to be immense, which is why the best CBD product for Hodor would be our Muscle & Joint Cream: Cooling Formula.
He’d greatly benefit from the cream’s white willow bark and menthol, which work to soothe your body while providing a pleasant cooling sensation. While it might not make a difference with a group of murderous wights clawing at your skin, it would’ve been very helpful in a number of other situations!
3. Tyrion Lannister
Tyrion Lannister is arguably the most recognizable character in both the show and books, right alongside Jon Snow and a select few others. He is the dwarf child of Tywin and Joanna Lannister, which earns him intense ridicule wherever he goes.
He makes up for his lack of height with heightened intelligence and cunning, although his alcoholism continues to chase him no matter where he goes. His ability to talk his way out of sticky situations makes him an important figure in the world of GOT, and while he might never get to be a ruler, his influence will always be felt.
Tyrion is crass and can oftentimes be harsh to those he speaks to; the result of a life of mockery and shame. More than anything else, his ability to speak is his driving force, as it’s his only way to command any sort of power that isn’t derived purely from his family’s name. Therefore, while he can be cruel, he relies heavily on his ability to smooth-talk his way in and out of certain situations.
For this reason, he’d appreciate the smoothness of our CBD Soft Gel Capsules. Much like Tyrion, these capsules pack a whole lot of power into a small frame, and their 25mg of CBD per capsule provides that daily wellness boost that would help to balance out Tyrion’s snide nature.
4. Bran Stark
Bran Stark is the fourth Stark child, and he eventually learns the magic of Greensight, which allows him to enter the consciousness of other people and animals around him. He becomes crippled as a child after being pushed out of a window, so his reliance on others becomes a slight hindrance to his growth. However, he perseveres and eventually becomes one of the wisest characters in GoT.
However, you have to wonder whether things would have been vastly different for him if he hadn’t been scaling buildings on the fateful day of his “accident.” Would he still have been visited by the three-eyed-raven and been sent on such an incredible journey?
Being a child, we’re certain that Bran would get bored at times and use his newfound abilities to enter the minds of others in Winterfell. The possibilities would be virtually endless, and with very few understanding his powers, they would all be none the wiser.
If Bran were to be a fan of shaking things up like this, he’d absolutely love our line of CBD Gummies. We offer 7 different gummies, each containing their own unique blend of CBD and other beneficial botanical ingredients, such as turmeric and apple cider vinegar. He’d be able to stave off boredom by alternating between these delicious gummy variants each day!
5. The Night King
The Night King is the ultimate baddy, a terrifying force that has existed in the Known World since the age of the first men. He is the leader of the white walkers, a race that lives in the far north that is characterized by their brute strength, near invincibility, and crystalline skin.
Their army of zombified humans is a nearly insurmountable force, as they can all simply be raised back from the dead once again at a moment’s notice. The Night King is fabled to be the one to bring back the Long Night, and his emergence from hiding forces the humans of the Known World to either join forces and fight for their lives or accept imminent death.
As evil, as he is, it’s hard to deny that the Night King isn’t super cool. Murderous intentions aside, everything he does is captivating and leaves you wondering what might be coming next. He’s always on the move, which is why his CBD product would have to be able to move around with him at all times.
Nothing is more mobile than our CBD disposable vape pens, which come pre-packed with 30-50mg of CBD hemp extract and offer the perfect hit with each use. The Night King would especially enjoy our Fresh Mint disposable pen since its flavor profile perfectly fits his cool, sharp demeanor.
These are five of the many GOT characters that would love our CBD products. The Known World is a harsh place to live in, with constant threats of war and savagery knocking at the door.
With a little bit of CBD, things might have ended in a very different way!
