Everyone’s talking about CBD. From hotel minibars and restaurants to soft drinks like Coca-Cola to beer, infusing CBD into food and drink items is increasingly popular. Not only that, but many are touting the health benefits of CBD oil. One study published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2017 claims CBD can reduce epileptic seizures in some children. And another study published in Neurotherapeutics in 2015 states that CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders.
To add, at the start of this year, California legalized recreational marijuana. And the entire country of Canada legalized recreational weed.
So it comes as no surprise that more and more CBD-infused products are hitting the market.
In short, the difference between CBD and THC is CBD is found primarily in extractions from the hemp plant. THC, on the other hand, is the main psychoactive compound in marijuana. As such, CBD doesn’t give you the high THC does, but it does reportedly aid in pain relief, migraines, depression, anxiety and more.
After doing a bit of searching, we pulled together some of the best CBD-infused products out there right now — products ranging from eye creams and lotion to gumdrops and, yes, even water.
