Happy National CBD Day!! Before we get this party started with my favorite CBD products, let’s take a moment to reflect on why CBD is the ingredient du jour these days. Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is incredible for calming inflammation, and inflamed skin means that healthy skin is breaking down. As for how CBD oil works, let’s just say it has excellent communication skills. Skin has specific receptor sites that CBD communicates with and the CBD tells the skin to stop freaking out. The skin listens and calms down, which reduces inflammation and results in healthy skin. So basically, CBD is this awesome mediator who steps in between skin and the progression of damage, convincing skin to stay calm which stops the damage in its tracks. CBD is one heck of an antioxidant, similar to vitamin C. Plus, according to scientific research CBD also plays a role in reducing oily skin.
Now that you understand why you need CBD in your life, here’s the buzz on the products you should consider!
So what is your pain? Do you have arthritis? Sore muscles? Bruises? Tension? Mad Ritual CBD Recovery Balm will take care of all your aches and pains. It improves your circulation, plus it stimulates the lymphatic system. Mad Ritual has three versions of the Recovery Balm: Unscented, Lavender & Frankincense, and Eucalyptus & Peppermint. The Rest + Relief Balm Set includes the two scented versions plus a self-massage guide for $65.00.
The i+i Dry Oil Body Mist acts like the natural oils in your skin and hair, so it isn’t greasy or sticky. Instead, it sinks in quickly and gives skin a beautiful glow. It has a lovely light scent of orange and sandalwood that couldn’t be better for summertime, giving skin just a kiss of scent. The Dry Oil Body Mist comes in a glass spray bottle that makes it really easy to spritz your whole body quickly. My skin feels amazing with this…satiny smooth and healthy. And it’s not just for skin! It’s a great frizz smoother, just spritz a little in your hands, rub together, then smooth on and brush through.
Inflammation is the root of all disease. Whenever there is a breakdown within the body at a cellular level, your body responds with inflammation. Heat, pain, redness, swelling…these are all signs of inflammation – your body is responding to a breakdown, and the inflammation is where disease starts. Lucent Botanicals Inflammation Relief Mints ($29.99 for one box of 40 mints) help your body process out toxins, recover from injuries, and in general reduce overall inflammation. I think it is an amazing alternative to prescribed drugs from mega pharmaceutical companies. as an alternative to daily medication or products from big pharmaceutical companies.
The Enhancing CBD Serum is a hybrid oil-based serum that features 300 mg Broad-spectrum Cannabidiol Oil, Marula Oil and Marshmallow Root Extract to hydrate, refine and brighten the appearance of the skin. The Enhancing CBD Serum is a fantastic choice because it not only is made under MyCHELLE’s incredibly high standards for their CBD products, but it also is made without any parabens, petroleum, phthalates, silicones, sulfates, ureas, artificial fragrances, or artificial colors. It is a fantastic option for working CBD into your skin care routine, and based on all the research you really should add this amazing ingredient to your arsenal
The CBD Night Time Nourishing Cream has Miss Bud’s CANATREX Plus, their proprietary CBD infused formula that features pure organic hemp seed oil. In addition it has olive oil which is great for an overnight moisturizer since it is an excellent hydrator that has tons of antioxidants and also helps to even out skin tone. On top of all that the CBD Night Time Nourishing Cream helps to reduce fine lines thanks to the linoleic acids that are in the hemp seed oil. It is a night-time moisturizing cream so I use two pumps instead of one, giving it as much of a chance as possible to work its magic. I use it on my face and on my neck and decolletage, which is where I can see immediate results.
The Skin Dope Argan Oil + CBD Oil ($78) delivers PEACE for your skin from head to toe. It is a lovely lightweight oil that has no fragrance and doesn’t leave skin feeling greasy. Used alone, it takes a minute to soak in, and it heals and soothes skin like crazy. I use this by itself on my face and neck for moisture and antioxidants. The CBD-rich Cannabis Sativa Hemp Extract soothes and relieves skin and promotes balance and wellness. The clinical results are impressive – in just 4 weeks, Skin Dope Argan Oil + CBD Oill is clinically shown to visibly improve the appearance of fine lines and coarse wrinkles and significantly improve skin smoothness and hydration.
The S•O•L CBD MOISTURIZING CREAM ($45.00) does everything that CBD does and then some thanks to some other fine ingredients. Hemp CBD Oil. Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory; Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. Anti-Aging peptide- reduces skin inflammation and damage; Vitamin A. Stimulates skin repair; Vitamin E. Powerful antioxidant; Jojoba Oil. Helps repair skin and damage control. Add Hyaluronic Acid to that impressive list, and we have one awesome moisturizer. The CBD Moisturizing Cream has no fragrance and is housed in an airless pump bottle. The moisturizer is somewhere between a liquid and a cream, and it soaks in immediately. It leaves skin feeling AMAZING – so soft and hydrated.And it tackles almost every problem that skin encounters as it ages – free radical damage, wrinkles and fine lines, dryness, dull complexion.
Extract Labs Muscle Cream comes in a lock-tight tin that ensures it won’t dry out. This cream is only for the body, not the face – they do have a separate face cream if you are interested. The cream is solid at first, but spreads out with body temperature. I tend to keep a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders, and as things have been a little tense lately this cream has been my savior. I cannot tell you how incredible this is – INSTANT pain relief like I have never experienced! The cream absorbs in immediately and doesn’t have an overwhelming menthol smell. You only need a tiny bit and I am not kidding, your pain is immediately gone. The relief lasts for several hours…I would say four with total pain relief. I am so impressed! If you have muscle pain from working out, arthritis, or joint pain then this will be the best $90 you have ever spent.
Cannaisseur Brands CBD Essentials If you are a bath lover, then you probably already know that salt soaks are fantastic for soothing sore muscles. Well, add in some premium CBD and you can only imagine how fabulously effective that bath can be! The CBD Essentials Salt Soak ($16.00 – $80.00) is incredible. There are four scent options available: Green Tea and Cucumber,Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Natural. They are a blend of mineral rich sea salts, premium CBD, and terpenes that make for a perfect bath that dissolves stress and all those painful muscle knots. If you want to get fancy, add in some massage oil to make sure your skin is hydrated as well.
