Have you tried CBD yet?
One of the biggest trends right now is using CBD products. CBD is short for cannabidiol, which is a chemical compound from the cannabis plant without the THC (the active ingredient that makes you high). It’s a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products like oils and edibles to help with anxiety and inflammation.
CBD products are especially great for athletes because after an intense workout, it can help to relax your muscles. There are many different CBD brands and products on the market, I thought I would share a few that are super reputable and pure, if you decided you wanted to start experimenting with it.
Curatio is a CBD oil derived from a 100% organic hemp grown in the USA. This specific CBD brand is also THC free so you won’t feel altered or any different when using it.
This is the perfect brand for people who are a little skeptical of CBD or who don’t want any kind of THC levels in their CBD products. Curatio goes the extra mile by getting the CBD from low-THC hemp and then ridding it of any THC molecules entirely. You can get relief, without having to worry about feeling any different at all.
Curatio is known to have the best combination of cream and oil to help keep inflammation down throughout your body while optimizing recovery. The cream is mainly used for joint pain and muscle recovery, using the oil and cream together assures for a speedy recovery.
RCVR specializes in three different types of CBD based recovery. They make products for mental and physical recovery. RCVR aims to help you stress less, ease body pain and improve overall sleep.
RCVR adds essential oils custom curated to each blend to assist in the goal of each one. For example, they add lavender (a well known essential oil that helps with sleep) to the sleep CBD. I love the smell and lavender has always helped me fall asleep easier.
The ingredients in the products are simple, clean and organic to ensure everything you’re using is good for your body as opposed to something like an over the counter pain reliever which can possibly lead to adverse reactions over time.
Some of the ingredients include; Organic East African Shea Butter, Beeswax, Frankincense, Organically grown CBD Extract and Lemon.

I am obsessed with the Hemp CBD bath soak and the CBD recovery balm. The moisturizing face and body oil are quite nice as well. I loved using them when I was home in the dry Idaho climate recently.

CBD is truly a remarkable little oil and from the experience, I’ve had with it so far, I do say it feels good. I like taking the tinctures before bed when I feel I need a little more relaxation. I also like using lotions and oils. Have you experimented with CBD yet; and if so what do you think?
