Far Out Finds for National CBD Day
by Amanda Lederman
rise and shine, it’s cbd time!
We’ve gathered a few of our favorite CBD brands recommended to help relieve your anxiety and pain, improve your wellness and beauty routine or maximize your chill session!
In honor of #NationalCBDDay, we’re chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool with a round-up of some seriously stellar CBD brands. CBD is having a major moment, and we are here for it.
CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients of cannabis (AKA marijuana). However, CBD is collected directly from hemp plants, so CBD is federally legal, has no psychedelic effects, and provides *most* of the same benefits as marijuana, including pain and anxiety relief, ultimate chill, and muscle relaxation.
Come on a CBD journey with us that will leave you feeling high! JK, CBD DOES NOT get you high. Let these brands help you figure out the right CBD products for your needs and make sure the stuff you're buying is, you know, the real deal.
Founded by #BlogHer19 Creator’s Summit Speaker Lo Bosworth, Love Wellness offers quality and fully compliant CBD products that will leave you feeling healthy, not high. Every plant they use for their products is organically grown, third-party tested, and free of gross contaminants. Take a “timeout” and feel good about it!
If you’re looking for a brand with heart, Papa & Barkley is your go-to. Their “Releaf” line was inspired by a son’s mission to make his father more comfortable from immobilizing back pain. They are a team of caregivers, scientists and professionals who want to improve people’s lives with cannabis.
