We’ve got the inside scoop on how to enhance your 420 vibes with the power of CBD and hemp-derived goodies. These essentials are here to make your experience highly enjoyable [wink, wink]. Did you know that CBD oil has been used for centuries to soothe pain (NLM)? Yep, since 2900 B.C., folks have been turning to this green goodness for relief. And while some hemp-derived products can give you that THC high feeling, CBD won’t leave you feeling spaced out. It’s like the responsible sibling who shows up to the party with herbal tea and a calming playlist. That doesn’t mean you have to snooze 420 away (unless you want to – no judgment). Hemp-derived products can be formulated to give you a boost too. All the benefits of weed, without the (unwanted) high.
