Unless you’ve been under a rock for the last 6 months or so, you’ve heard about the new wellness craze – CBD oil. Cannabidiol (a/k/a CBD) is a popular natural remedy used for many common ailments. It’s derived from cannabis but has no THC so it doesn’t have any psychoactive effect. Thus, it can’t make you high. While still new, there are some studies that show CBD oil can reduce pain, help with anxiety and skin ailments and more.
CBD Living offered to send me some of their topical remedies with CBD. CBD Living is a Global CBD manufacturer and distributor. They use organic hemp and nanotechnology to make CBD 90% bioavailable in their water, gummies, freeze, vapes and more. All products are triple tested by a third party for purity and are made in the USA.
They sent me CBD Living Freeze, a cold therapy roll on, and bath bombs. I’m a huge bath fan, so I was very excited for the bath bombs. Also with all of my running and activity, a pain relief, cold therapy tool is always welcome. I was super excited when I say Marcia’s post that said that the CBD bath bombs helped her to sleep soundly. I’m a pretty bad sleeper so I was hoping it would have the same effect on me!
I started by trying the CBD Living Freeze. After I came back from California, I thought it would be a good idea to go to the trainer, run, get stretched at Stretchlab, go to Pilates and run home in the same day. What was I thinking? Well, I tweaked my inner thigh somewhere along the way. I rolled on the balm as instructed. It gets really cold like Biofreeze. The cool sensation lasts a while and I did feel like the tweaked muscle relaxed with the treatment. I’m definitely going to keep using this roll on!
A few days later I tried the lavender bath bomb. It dissolved really quickly and had a strong but pleasant lavender scent.
You can see the bomb fizzing! And the pretty bath water color.
The bath was relaxing as baths always are for me. I soaked for about 20 minutes and then I went to bed with hopes of a deeper sleep. Truth be told, I didn’t have a great night’s sleep. I did have some wine with dinner, so I’m not sure if that was the culprit. I did notice that my muscles felt loose despite running 12 miles and going to a spin class fundraiser the day before. My skin felt soft, too! I’ll try again soon sans wine.
