First things first, I live in Los Angeles. The CBD trend hit both New York and LA, hard. It’s fairly easy to get your hands on CBD oil here — whether you’re popping into Moon Juice, Whole Foods, or even Urban Outfitters. Plus, this is 2019. You can order almost anything online.
One of our editors tried a bunch of non-psychoactive CBD products to help control her anxiety levels.
Secondly, I have terrible anxiety. I think it is one of my defining characteristics (unfortunately). I am prone to anxiety attacks and I do take a prescribed medication when they become overwhelming. However, I tend to vibrate with nerves most of the time anyway (fun!). I have been trying to combat them with yoga and therapy, but taking an oil every day sounds like a faster fix (or a potential disaster), and at this point in my life I am game for anything!
I had high hopes, but reader, I could not get past the taste. I am very sensitive to flavors, which is great for some things (like taste-testing Pringles) and bad for others I suppose. I could have tried mint, but honestly, I hate artificial mint flavoring. I abandoned this one after a few days despite the brand’s suggestion that I could put it in something like a smoothie, coffee or yogurt.
While on my quest to find something tasty that I could take daily, I stopped by Moon Juice — which offers juices as well as coffees and matchas with adaptogenic “dusts.” My local shop offers CBD as a beverage add-in. The brand is still Charlotte’s Web, but they only offer the highest dosage.
Most of us know that the key to a killer liquid breakfast is the perfect blend of fruit (and veggies), your milk of choice and your fave nut butter. But when you add some adaptogen power and hemp extract oil to the mix, magic happens. As the food you incorporate into your smoothies nourishes your body from the inside out, adaptogens and hemp help to streamline the body’s natural stress response, leaving you feeling calm, centered and ready to tackle the day.
It’s time to take your summer smoothie game to the next level.
