CBD — it’s so hot right now. Whether you’ve dabbled in Cannabidoil (known as CBD) gummies or are just plain curious about this IT substance, I’ve got you covered. In case you haven’t been following CBD’s meteoric rise amongst the wellness set, the supplement is praised to help panoply of health problems.
Miami’s “Couture Hippies” have taken a cult favorite following toward the Los Angeles-based brand Lord Jones. Their Co-Founder and President Cindy Capobianco tells me, “Cannabidiol is one of over a hundred active compounds in the cannabis plant. CBD acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory so it reduces pain and inflammation. CBD has been used for centuries to successfully provide pain relief and aid to skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea when used topically. When ingested, CBD acts as an anti inflammatory and analgesic, addressing pain relief, mood stabilization, relief from anxiety and promotes a calm sense of well-being.”
And, no, CBD will not get you high as a kite like that stinky sticky stuff you smoked back in your freshman dormitory. CBD is a non-euphoric — void of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) which is the plant’s primary psychoactive compound known for its euphoriant effect.
So where can you scoop up Lord Jones and other real deal (Read: not snake oil) CBD goods for you and your pets from brands such as Empower, Wildflower, Calyx, Green Gorilla, Global Advanced Botanicals, Mary’s Nutritionals, Plant People, Select and Juna in Miami? Swing by Shop Flow at The Sacred Space (105 NE 24th Street, Miami), Babalu (1111 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach) or The Standard (pictured above and located at 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach).
“Aside from destigmatizing CBD, I’m making Shop Flow the most curated CBD dispensary in Miami. We carry the most integral and sometimes organic CBD-infused vapes, tinctures, gel pens, salves, gummies, body oils and skin care,” The Sacred Space Owner Karla Dascal tells me.
Over at The Standard spa, the holistic property offers a service coined The Royal Chill — a CBD-infused foot bath, scrub and massage — leaving the recipient relaxed, less ache-y and chill AF.
I’ll leave you on that high note.
