Once you reach a certain age (and if you’re reading this, we assume that you are in striking distance) the physical changes are undeniable. It gets harder to sleep, run, keep off those extra pounds, you know what we’re talking about. Things tend to hurt a little more, a little more often. But there’s something remarkable that might be able to help.
Do you know about CBD? Yes, technically it’s weed, but it’s as far away from the old days as a roach clip. CBD is short for cannabidiol, a compound found in cannabis plants and hemp. It has many medicinal and therapeutic benefits, but it’s completely non-psychoactive. In other words, you won’t get high. At all. Scientific and clinical research has suggested that CBD can be used to treat a variety of conditions including chronic pain, depression, insomnia, and arthritis. It’s also an anti-inflammatory, can decrease blood pressure, and even help with sexual arousal.
In addition, CBD products made from hemp are federally legal, meaning that if you live in a state with stricter recreational marijuana laws, you can just order them online. Of course, if you do want to get high, that’s fine too. The CBD-infused products below can be used for a variety of reasons, from pain and anxiety relief to a good night’s sleep. And as the kids like to say–they’re dope.
Lord Jones Wellness Body Lotion, $60
This L.A.-based brand is a celebrity favorite and their body lotion is a great cool down for sore muscles and joint pain. The packaging is so beautiful, you can even leave it out on the counter.
These little high CBD-infused sweets–made from five ingredients–help with everything from pain relief to mood stabilization. We like to eat one to ensure a good night’s sleep.
Vertly Hemp Infused Lotion, $42
Founded by a former fashion editor and her husband whose family is in the marijuana business, Vertly offers a CBD-infused body lotion–perfect for aches and soreness right after a workout–and a yummy lip butter (it’s really quite delicious). There’s also a cannabis-infused option, but it’s only available in California.
Just in case you were still unclear, this CBD-based product is definitely not pot. It is, however, a tasty dark chocolate heart that can help you chillax. It’s sort of a perfect treat.
Sagely Relief and Recovery Cream, $35.99
Sagely was started by two young women who were inspired to create something that would help with their mother’s daily aches and pains.
OK, so this isn’t a lotion or an edible–it’s a therapeutic oil spray–a secret sexy spray that you spritz directly on to your vagina. It helps with natural lubrication and enhances sexual pleasure so, yeah, you’re welcome.
