Testimonials as to the health and wellness benefits of CBD continue to roll in. Whether it's combating inflammation and pain relief for those battling arthritis, nerve pain, MS, or just general stress and anxiety management, many say that CBD supplements have provided them with a better quality of life.
So far, the FDA and serious medical trials have barely begun in the effort to back up those claims with hard science. However, the anecdotal results have been all the fuel needed to launch a galaxy of CBD-infused products to help with everyday aches and pains as well as deeper physical and psychological conditions.
It's an exploding field — so check out 20 different CBD products that may help improve your daily life or that of a loved one, all at discounts up to 58 percent off.
CBD oils are extracted from the flowers of the hemp plant — and while they carry none of the hallucinogenic or addictive properties of another major marijuana component THC, they are often acknowledged as the most potent form of CBD, depending on the dosage.
Doses of Medix 100mg CBD Oil ($21.99; originally $26.99) are infused with premium CBD-rich non-flavored hemp oil; while doses of FREEZE 350mg CBD Topical Oil ($31.99; originally $40) utilize menthol-rich plant extracts like peppermint and camphor to provide an intense cooling and soothing sensation for the most irritating aches and pains.
While oils are direct extracts, tinctures combine those properties with vegetable glycerin, cinnamon oils, or even alcohol. While less potent, tinctures are often easier to mix with food and digest than the more bitter oils.
For those looking for milder doses of CBD, three varieties made by John + Toms are on sale now, each offering different refining processes. BASIC Pure CBD Isolate Tincture ($27.99; originally $40) is the purest form of CBD; while RAW Full Spectrum CBD Tincture ($27.99; originally $40) is an extract that contains all compounds found naturally in the plant, including terpenes, essential oils, and other cannabinoids. Finally, BARE Broad Spectrum CBD Tincture ($27.99; originally $40) is a bit of a mix of the previous two, still removing all THC while retaining trace elements of other plant components.
Meanwhile, for those seeking a more powerful punch, the 1,000mg high dose WAKE Full Spectrum CBD Tincture from Common Ground ($95.99; originally $120) combines full-spectrum extracts for a subtle, elegant, yet impactful supplement.
If you're not a fan of the taste of CBD oil, the capsule format may be the best way to go for you. BALANCE 900mg CBD Capsules ($51.99; originally $65) are taken as one soft gel capsule per day, equipped with only three natural ingredients for a clean, honest and convenient daily CBD dose.
You could also try the Day or Night varieties of Jane West CBD Capsules ($35.99; originally $58), endorsed by leading cannabis activist Jane West. Morning capsules include amino acids and proteins for enhanced mood and increased concentration, while the Night edition contains tryptophan for improved sleep.
Lotions, rubs, and creams
CBD lotions, rubs and creams are administered topically, which means they can be best concentrated directly in high pain areas for muscle relief or alleviating skin conditions.
CBD Pain Lotion ($42.99; originally $60) includes a full spectrum blend of organic CBD that not only soothe aching muscles but can help heal skin from psoriasis, dryness, inflammation and other irritations. Originally created for post-workout use, RECOVER 600mg CBD Muscle Recovery Rub ($47.99; originally $60) is another full-spectrum CBD product produced in Colorado specifically to relax muscles after intense exercise.
Of course, if you just want to see how a CBD cream might work for you, we'd suggest trying the variety here with the biggest discount in this group: Medix 150mg CBD Topical Pain Relief Cream ($24.99; originally $59.99).
The easiest way to integrate CBD into daily use may be as part of your regular bathroom beauty regimen. Sunset CBD Organic CBD-Infused Shampoo and Conditioner ($29.99; originally $59.99) includes all the rich nutrients and botanical extracts for shiny, healthy hair, but also contains CBD to promote collagen production and hair growth that nourishes the scalp and cuts down on irritation that can lead to dandruff.
Or you can just lay back and bathe in the restorative properties of CBD with a four-pack of these CBD Infused Bath Bombs ($44.99; originally $59.99). With styles ranging from calm and soothing to focused and sensual with oils of lavender, eucalyptus, tangerine, and peppermint, these bombs can either mellow you out after a tough day or help restore your skin with healthy CBD-enriched minerals.
How about a shot of CBD with your morning caffeine hit? Jane West CBD Coffee ($38.99; originally $48) is a combination of rich light-roast beans sourced from female coffee growers in Costa Rica infused shortly after the roast with full-spectrum CBD from certified organic hemp grow right here in the USA.
Or if coffee isn't your thing, you can also get your CBD in good old comfort food with Hemp Extract Mac and Cheese ($14; originally $16). It's just two cups of boiling water, hatch green chili, cheddar cheese, garlic and 35mg of CBD for both a tasty and healthy meal.
Even among all these options, there may be no more delightful and yummy CBD delivery system than the tried and true gummy.
Whether you go sour or sweet, you can pick up about 10mg of CBD per gummy from this convenient 20-pack (Holiday CBD Premium CBD Gummies – $32; originally $39.99), 30-pack (Medix CBD Gummies – $29; originally $49.99), or 50-pack (CBD Gummies – $29.99; originally $40) bottles.
And if you'd like a little variety in your sweets, you can even try a pair of Kangaroo varieties catering to the watermelon and banana lovers: High Potency CBD Watermelon Slice Gummies ($25.99; originally $49.99), or their equally-tasty Kangaroo Banana CBD Gummies ($19.99; originally $29.99). And unlike the other gummies, these each pack between 15 and 35mg of CBD in each candy.
