In case you’ve been living under a rock the past year — Cannabis is the hottest trend in health, wellness and beauty right now. Specifically, people like yours truly are really interested in CBD — or cannabidiol — the non-psychoactive ingredient in the cannabis plant. That means you won’t get “high” on it like that green stuff you smoked back in your college dorm.
With this said, I’ve been taking CBD gummies when I’m feeling anxious and was most recently turned on to CBD salves to combat pain by my mother. Yes, my super conservative mother. She swears by it for her arthritis.
Me? I have really bad pain in my right arm from typing on my laptop in a whacky manner so I thought I’d give CBD salves a try, too, since mom is an ardent fan. The truth? This CBD salve by Veritas Farms ($39) is bomb-diggity. Rub a pea-size amount onto your trouble spots and enjoy the soothing cooling affect. Sayonara, pain!
