Stressful days are common, especially in the midst of a pandemic. While some people have better coping mechanisms than others, everyone is likely feeling the stress of their circumstances right now, whether they’re going through a rough time or are just tired of being stuck inside with or without others.
CBD may be a good product to have in your arsenal right now to help cope with symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety and more, as well as help protect your skin and treat your achy muscles.
Here are five types of CBD products in the U.S. to help you relax when you need it most.
CBD massage oils
One of CBD’s strongest properties is its effect on inflammation, having provided relief for people with sore muscles from workouts, bad posture or much of the day sitting down (read: almost all of us right now). While you won’t be able to replicate the experience of getting a cannabis massage, you may be about to reap some benefits of CBD by massaging some oil or lotion on your joints and muscles.
CBD face masks
There are CBD faces masks available, from the ones that come in a tube to those that you remove from the package and put on your face, preferably after spending some time in the fridge. Face masks can be a relaxing and efficient form of self care, hydrating the skin and preventing flakiness and irritation. The addition of CBD is said to help increase blood flow and prevent blemishes since it battles inflamed skin.
Working from home limits a person’s movement considerably. CBD creams and other topicals can help get rid of those kinks and muscle pains.
CBD bath bombs
Baths are always relaxing, and especially so if there’s a fizzy, good-smelling bath bomb thrown in there. CBD bath bombs are touted for helping to release tension, make you feel even more relaxed and providing benefits for your skin.
While CBD gummies probably won’t provide instant relaxation — every user’s experience is different when it comes to CBD — the effects may build up over time, enhancing effects as you become a regular user. CBD gummies taste great and may not make you feel high, but will make you feel relaxed, which sounds pretty ideal right now.
