Whether you’re hoping to calm damaged skin, fortify your nails, or ease the pain of arthritis – this single, very affordable product is all you need. Its easy pump delivery system makes this a cinch to use on-the-go and everything about it is soothing, right down to the floaty lavender, chamomile and lemon scent.
It’s fragrance-free and THC free, broad spectrum (meaning it contains a range of beneficial cannabinoids and terpenes), organic and third party tested – making this is a brand you can really trust. It’s a small jar for the price, but you only need to use a small amount for big results. And the balm absorbs very well allowing the CBD to get to work quickly, inside and out.
The multiple uses of the turmeric & lemongrass CBD balm by Sweet Pink makes this one our best buy. The fact in can be used for just about anything, from pain relief to acne treatment, makes the very affordable price all the more reasonable. And it’s a real pleasure to use too. If you’re looking for one luxury product to add to your skincare routine every day, for all skin needs, we highly recommend the BNatural face oil – particularly if acne is a problem for you.
Hapi Hemp hapi hands CBD hand and nail cream, 30ml
There’s something to say for a once-in-a-blue-moon pampering sesh where you indulge in layering a load of pricey products onto your skin. But, day-to-day, most of us appreciate a handy multi-tasker – it saves money, space, packaging and time. This 100 per cent natural all-purpose balm, laden with potent anti-inflammatories and deeply nourishing skin-loving ingredients, is just that.
For the eco-conscious, rest assured this is a plastic-free zone – the jar is glass, the lid is wood, the box it comes in is cardboard. And what’s more, these products are made with heart. The brand was created by Tannine Montgomery, who campaigned for new medical cannabis regulations in the UK after seeing her infant daughter’s Dravet syndrome seizures dramatically reduced by high strength CBD oil in Holland. The understanding of and passion for the whole cannabis plant is noticeable in the quality of this wonderful range.
Unlike the psychoactive THC molecule (which you won’t find in any UK CBD products, as the hemp approved for use contains no more than a nominal 0.2 per cent), CBD doesn’t get you high. But what it does do is bind to a range of receptors, including ECS receptors that can be found in almost all skin cells. Studies have shown that this action can help reduce inflammation and regulate the normal function of the waterproof skin barrier. This plays a vital role in the maintenance and healthy turn-over of new skin cells, sebum production, reducing the effects of free-radical damage and more.
Rich, creamy and a total delight to use, this deliciously scented shea and almond body butter is ideal for anyone looking to rehydrate, soothe and nourish very dry or irritated skin, with the support of 500mg CBD. A little goes a long way, and even when used sparingly the oily content might prove a little greasy for some – but it does absorb well after around ten minutes, particularly on parched skin.
“The best thing I ever could have done was ask my daughter’s neurologist about it.”
So, let’s support the research and the parents whose lives have changed for the better once they had safe, legal access to CBD oil for their kids. If you’re a parent who’s not sold on using CBD oil for your little ones but still need natural relaxation alternatives, use some lavender essential oil, a white-noise machine, and consult your pediatrician if that’s not cutting it.
She purchased more CBD oil from a company online to continue treating her child. When one of the hospitals she was seeking treatment from alerted Child Protective Services about the alternative treatment, an invasive investigation was conducted, including blood tests.
Back to the Hilts: Haley’s seizures did start to pick up again after slowing down tremendously for the first month of treatment, but she’s still making wonderful progress developmentally and seizing less intensely overall. Normally, seizures can prevent Haley from reaching new, important milestones, but Hilt says it seems like there’s almost something protective about the CBD oil (which she said her daughter’s doctors in New York and Boston agree with).
While previous generations may have just accepted the first line of treatment recommended by a family physician, there is truly a new wave of parents who recognize there might be life-changing benefits from using CBD to treat a child. More than ever before, parents are initiating these conversations. And don’t forget that parents (yes, even those who don’t personally use marijuana!) legally advocate for and use CBD oil as medicine for their children who truly need it.
There are incredible testimonials from families who have found relief after incorporating CBD oil into their daily lifestyle. Melissa Hilt’s 11-year-old daughter, Haley, was having more than 100 seizures a day. Surgery, alternative diets, more than 15 medications — nothing could effectively limit the amount of her seizures.
Could CBD (cannabidiol) oil be the new go-to for calming kids down? With states green-lighting the green stuff one after another, there’s a new wave of marijuana-using millennials and open-minded parents in general who are more curious than ever before about giving marijuana- and hemp-derived oils to their kids and babies.
