Cannabis Is Coming to a Lotion, Lip Balm and Sleep Aid Near You
We’ll be honest: Some wellness trends are—shall we say?—out-there. But really, why not infuse everything in your life with cannabis? From chocolate to bath soaks, these holistic products boast everything from pain relief to improved sleep quality. Here, five to help you get in on the trend, should you be so inclined. (Just talk to your doctor first, OK?)
It’s time to ditch your regular ChapStick for super sativa medicinal hydrating balm—it’s a natural, organic lip balm with nutrient-rich cannabis sativa seed oil and other non-GMO ingredients like coconut oil, cocoa butter, lavender essential oil and vitamin E. Apparently, cannabis seed oil is basically a hydrating vitamin cocktail for your lips. Good to know.
Whoopi & Maya Medical Cannabis
Got cramps? Whoopi Goldberg’s medical-marijuana company, launched with “canna-businesswoman” Maya Elisabeth, is a line of products designed to provide relief. It currently includes a bath soak made with avocado seed oil and cannabis extract, a raw cacao that can be eaten on its own or added to milk and which releases an array of “feel good” chemicals, and a cream meant to alleviate pain from cramps. (Heads up, though: For now it’s available only in California and Colorado.)
Pain and Wellness Pure CBD Body Lotion
Chic packaging aside, this lotion from Lord Jones purports to soothe sore muscles, joint pain and skin conditions. It also comes out of the package in a measured dose, to make sure you don’t apply too much. Since it doesn’t contain THC, it’s non-psychoactive, but it does smell amazing (like a blend of sage, mint and green citrus).
Everyday Hemp Oil
This everyday oil from Charlotte’s Web can be taken orally or added to smoothies, salad dressings and coffee to boost general wellness. Among the reviews on the company’s site are customers raving about the oil’s ability to calm mild anxiety as well as soothe lower back and knee pain, GI inflammation and combat sleep troubles.
1906 Midnight Chocolate
Uh, yum. 1906 has a whole range of cannabis-infused chocolates, but this one, Midnight, is specifically designed to optimize sleep. These mild chocolate gems contain plants that could help you turn off a long day and the stress with it. We get to eat chocolate and have a more restful sleep? Sign us up. Unfortunately, like the Whoopi & Maya products, 1906 isn't available nationwide—these are only an option for lucky residents of Colorado.
