CBD products and cannabidiol as a stand-alone substance have been getting a lot of airtime lately, and for good reason. While CBD infused tinctures, capsules and balms are shooting up like mushrooms all around us, I bet we can still surprise you. There must be at least one or two CBD products listed here that you didn’t know existed in a CBD-version!
As easy as it may seem to dismiss CBD products as yet another health-craze-hype, the things CBD has made possible for small children with serious illnesses is nothing short of amazing. That says something. And even if you’re (fairly/very) healthy, there is no reason not to add some of this amazing plant medicine to your life in one form or another. In my humble opinion, everyone (not just those with serious medical conditions) should at least experiment a little with the substance, to see what it can do for you.
I can almost hear the sound of Beyonce’s voice, going:
“If you like it, you should put some CBD in it…
If you like it, you should put some CBD in it…
Uh-oh-uh, oh-uh-oh uh-oh uh-oooh oh-uh-ohhh”
Okay, maybe that sounded a lot funnier in my head.
But really, CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is such a fabulous marijuana compound. It isn’t illegal anywhere, doesn’t impair your functioning in any way, has the most interesting health benefits, and basically no downsides.
1. CBD-infused water
As simple as taking a sip? Why, yes – you can now take CBD in the form of something undeniably vital, and the source of all life. The Swiss creators of Isidiol CBD infused water have reduced CBD to the smallest possible size in order for the particles to become soluble in water. A team of doctors, armed with the latest scientific knowledge, blended CBD and water through a proprietary process based on nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology refers to science working on the atomic or molecular level, where things happen on a scale of less than 100 nm (nanometers). Knowing that nanos is the ancient Greek word for dwarf, and one nanometer is a millionth of a meter, that is pretty small indeed.
The CBD in Isodiol water is completely natural and not contaminated with anything artificial or synthetic, but simply broken up to make it smaller. Nano CBD particles are small enough to cross the blood brain barrier. The CBD that’s floating around in Isodiol water is so much easier to assimilate by the body as it is smaller than “regular” sized CBD. The benefit: none of it goes to waste, as the body has no trouble putting these tiny particles to good use.
Isodiol CBD infused water has a pH level of 9 or higher and comes it two varieties. Read more about Isodiol water and some of their other cbd products here. A little spoiler – the first kind of water contains coenzyme Q10 and vitamin B12 in the form of methylcobalamine, and the second one comes with added potassium and other electrolytes.
2. Spread, rub, spray, roll or stick CBD products on your skin
You may have heard of cbd products to apply to the skin before, but did you know things have moved way beyond just the basic cbd balm or cream? Aside from cbd in the form of skin ointments, there are massage oils, application sticks, cbd patches and even a muscle freeze.
Check out Mary’s Medicinals Elite Muscle Freeze with cbd, or their skin patches that come in both a cbd and a thc version.
3. The CBD Home Spa experience
From bath time to beauty, Gypsy Magic has got your stressed inner hippie covered. Gypsy Magic CBD bath bombs are made with mainly natural ingredients such as baking soda and essential oils. As the bath bomb dissolves, rose petals or dried lavender will be floating by. Even more unexpected: you could also find a few small, hard unidentified objects in the tub. Surprise! Gypsy Magic’s CBD bath bombs hide a few little chakra gemstones. They bring the works, don’t you think?
4. But first… Coffee.
Or tea. Or a smoothie with cbd powder – whatever fuels your groove, House of Jane has just the kind of cbd products in the form of infused beverages, whether it is to start the day or cozy up on the couch with. Yes, they even do hot chocolate! (flavorless cbd powder) by House of Jane
5. Fairly healthy CBD Gummies
Many different brands make edibles in all sorts of forms, shapes, and sizes. I once picked up a CBD lollypop in a local store, and very much intended to get it.. right until I turned it around and noticed the ingredients. The other ingredients, besides the CBD, that is. A bunch of synthetic colorants (the ones with FD&C numbers) paired up with something that’s supposed to have such great health benefits? Sorry, but no thanks, I’ll pass.
Kushy Punch doesn’t use any artificial flavorings, cornstarch or powdered gelatin, only high grade gelatin leaf, natural flavor extracts, and essential oils. To appeal to any and all medical and recreational users, the sweets come in six varieties: an Indica, Sativa, and hybrid kind on the THC side, as well as a double strength one. Then, a mixed kind with both THC and CBD, and of course a CBD only version.
Aside from the candy, Kushy Punch also makes some sweet flavored disposable vape pens. CBD Bliss contains 500 mg and is good for about 300 puffs. The disposable vape pens with THC are just as appropriately named as though belonging in a candy shop: Mango Madness, Strawberry Cough, Honey Dew, Apple Candy and Unicorn Dreams.
