The Essential CBD Products Every Bad Babe Needs
Chances are you have that one hippie friend who's been rubbing CBD balm on their sore joints before bed, or spritzing on CBD oil to ease anxiety. Now, the ingredient is cropping up everywhere from skincare and haircare to cosmetics and sex products. CBD is a component found in cannabis.
Unlike the THC in marijuana, won't get you high or show up on a drug screening. Instead, CBD (short for cannabidiol) is used to treat everything from anxiety to pimples. Here's what you need to know about the sexiest ingredient of the moment.
The Tea on CBD
CBD is prized for its soothing, anti-inflammatory qualities, which is why the ingredient has popped up in eye creams, muscle balms, tea and skin creams. It also contains vitamins A, D, and E and essential fatty acids. This super ingredient naturally amplifies the "bliss molecule" (also known as anandamide) that our bodies already produce. The feeling is akin to a runner's high - reduced anxiety, increased relaxation, and absolutely no foggy-headed stoner-brain side effects. When ingested, it enters the bloodstream and pings your bodies endocannabinoid receptors. If it's applied topically (like in a lotion or oil), it penetrates into your skin to promote calm and relaxation. Drinking CBD tea is a great way to introduce CBD into your daily routine.

So, What's It Good For?
The extract is incredible for those suffering from anxiety, stress, insomnia, tension, or just a long day at the office. It's also bomb for soothing stressed, dry or inflamed skin (think acne, eczema, etc.). It's also fab for putting you in the mood for a little romance. Including CBD extracts in a bath bomb (like the Kush Queens Love CBD Bath Bomb included in our June Box) or bath salts elevates your bathing experience to include extra deep relaxation and muscle soothing (plus scents and sensations to put you in an amorous state of mind).
Speaking Of Getting In The Mood
There are a multitude of reasons why folx use CBD to aid and enhance their sex lives. Even if you don't suffer from anxiety or chronic pain, chances are you can benefit from CBD's ability to relax the mind and body. (Two benefits, by the way, that benefit almost any sexual experience). CBD doesn't just relieve inflammation and promote relaxation - it can help increase pleasurable sensations too. CBD Lube (like the Ignite CBD Lube by Kush Queens included in our June Box) makes including CBD into your love life (whether solo or with a partner or two) so easy.
