MOST PEOPLE think of CBD as the ultimate “chill” remedy. And they’re not wrong, but CBD actually functions on a deeper level in our bodies than fighting stress alone.
CBD can be used for anxiety, pain, inflammation, insomnia — even better sex.
Over the last twelve months, we’ve never been more grateful for access to high-quality CBD products — from tinctures to topicals. Here’s a quick ‘CBD 101’ for those just catching up (very quick because we know we’ve explained this to you 1 million times along with the rest of the health-and-wellness world)…
A Refresher on Why CBD Works
CBD (aka cannabidiol) is a naturally-occurring chemical compound found in hemp. Unlike “the pot,” as they say on Sex and the City, CBD does not get you high and has epic anti-inflammatory properties. There are different kinds of cannabinoids that work with your body’s innate endocannabinoid system to help your body regulate sleep, pain, anxiety, mood, inflammation, and more.
Taking CBD regularly can help build up on the cannabinoids already present in your body, and help boost the effectiveness of your endocannabinoid system
CBD is only now being appreciated by the general public because of groundbreaking legislation in 2018 that finally made it legal. Ever since that legislation passed, CBD brands have shot up like weeds everywhere. It’s our goal to hustle the research and bring you only brands that operate with transparent best practices to create products that really work or that are especially noteworthy. Below are five from Original Hemp.
What we love about each of these five, unique functional picks is that they’ve been blended with complementary, science-backed ingredients that target specific wellness needs…
Being home all of the time has helped us to get our health priorities into clear view. But, to be honest, it’s also highlighted a whole new set of issues that come from living and working from home.
Stress? Check. Disrupted sleep? Check. Aches and pains from the sitting in front of a screen all day? Check. Intense frustration from hearing your significant other speak at full volume while on their video call even though you’re trying to concentrate on something super important for work? Check. Check. Check.
With all that keenly in mind, here’s what we have added to our CBD arsenal throughout the week. Find the solution that matches your most crucial wellness need…
RELIEF CAPSULES for aches + pains | Find yourself making “dad noises” when you sit down and stand up? It might be time to add some CBD to your life. These 750mg, full-spectrum capsules are our essential go-tos when we need everyday, natural pain management or prophylactic joint care. They’re infused with the royal line-up of anti-inflammatories like boswellia, turmeric, obviously CBD, and doctor-formulated ingredients like bioperine for a perfectly synergistic medley of protection.

FRESH BERRY TINCTURE for a balanced mood | What we love about a high-quality sublingual is that it can actually improve your overall sense of wellbeing almost immediately. A sublingual tincture is a great way to feel the impact of CBD for first-timers who want to see if hemp works well for them. A good sublingual can bring you back to a state of balance, immediately relieving stress.
This blueberry and raspberry-infused tincture packs a punch of full-spectrum goodness with a CBD strength from 250mg to 2000mg — you choose. The hemp oil tincture works with myrcene terpene and limonene terpene to help you achieve a resilient, calm and lifted mood as you go about your day. LEARN MORE
STRESS GUMMIES for stress relief | It’s no accident that Original Hemp made a gummy for stress. Just the idea of popping a candy-like gummy lightens our mood significantly. These gummies are an ideal little treat to help you combat anxiety. One gummy has 25 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract, as well as powerful stress-fighting ingredients like ashwagandha, L-theanine, and vitamin D3 — all of which target feelings of stress, overwhelm and a low mood.

COOL RELIEF ROLL-ON for post-workout pain | This roll-on is all about providing instant relief. We store this little bottle right alongside our body bands and ankle weights for easy access.

Original Hemp combines CBD with powerfully soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients like menthol, capsicum, organic aloe leaf, and at least 20 other botanicals. LEARN MORE
SLEEP CAPSULES for rest + relaxation | We spend half our lives asleep – the time when our bodies and minds rest and recharge.
