Forgive the hold up here but I’ve been really taking my time with this post- I know, for like EVER, I’ve held off on discussing CBD oil. I just feel like instead of hopping on every wellness trend I need to take a minute, try it for a while, record my results, & then come to The Skinny Confidential to report back to you.
And you should be glad I waited a hot minute because I found a VERY insane product-one that I can recommend to you with full confidence. We’ll get to it but first things first, k?
LIKE wait, WTF is CBD? I mean many people confuse it with WEED. It’s not weed though. I could show you innumerable vintage pics of why I can’t smoke pot- like I have a box disposable camera stuffed away in my high school scrapbooks ( YAH- we used to have this thing called SCRAPBOOKS ! CRAZY TIMES ! DINOSAUR AGES REALLY ! ) that showcase me in the corner at ragers because I got too stoned to talk. So if you’re like me & you get anxious from weed, have no fear because CBD is not the same.Let’s dissect with facts: CBD is an abbreviation for Cannabidiol, a chemical compound found naturally in the cannabis plant. It is NOT mind altering like marijuana, which means CBD will NOT get you all high. I feel more of a relaxing feeling really. The kind I like, Green Roads’ CBD, is extracted from 100% industrial hemp, which has non- detectable THC. They take it a step further & remove any THC particles. So it’s just pure, good old CBD. Basically don’t stress- you’ll pass a drug test because well, there’s nothing in this specific CBD that gets you high.
Now I have a million ideas for you on how to implement CBD into your life. Why? Because I’ve gotten creative with it. Things like: adding it to my golden latte, putting it in smooth move tea, adding a few drops to Michael’s massage oil & rubbing his back, & even- yes EVEN mixing it in my kale, blueberry smoothie.
I have probably been using CBD for the last 8 months. It all started with a few drops underneath my tongue at night. About three-ish if we’re getting specific. Which we are. We’re always getting specific in this neck of the woods, you know. Anyhow, I add some under my tongue & sort of let it chill & dissolve- EASY.Then I got my boobs done ( you get it- we’ve talked about it a lot ! ) & started walking to this place in West Hollywood called Moon Juice. I would walk alone every day & grab this turmeric, healing coconut water. One day they asked me if I wanted to add CBD for inflammation- this made total sense because YES I DID BECAUSE I JUST HAD SURGERY YOU KNOW. I seriously think it had a lot to do with how fast I healed. My surgeon told me I healed the fastest he’s ever seen anyone heal. I moved frequently, focused on anti-inflammatory foods, took my vitamins, drank tons of water, AND had a few drops of CBD every day.
This is interesting, no?
Between you & me I am actually floored how well CBD oil works- I mean I try a lot of wellness shit you know? And this, THIS works. It’s relaxing without a high. It helps with anxiety but not in a druggy way. It combats inflammation & does it fast.OTHER BENEFITS FOR YA: CBD is known to help with arthritis, joint pain, stomach cramps, period cramps, swelling, aches, colds, anxiety, depression, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, YOU NAME IT. Also, it’s known as a safe alternative to painkillers & some prescription drugs.
Really nothing negative to say here- CBD rules. I get the hype. In fact, it’s by my bed. Every night. I even found dog treats that have CBD in it & my Chihuahuas love it- before you judge, they love it & it’s actually very healthy. Google it.
Oh, yes & we can’t forget the brand: GREEN ROADS WORLD. This company is a brand, man- they have: OILS! LOTIONS ! SYRUPS ! COFFEE ! TEAS ! EDIBLES ! DOG TREATS ! Like the works. They’re seriously like the leading brand when it comes to CBD. They use certified organic hemp in their CBD process- I highly recommend looking for this when you’re purchasing CBD. They’re not just hopping on a trend either- this company has over 20 years of experience. YES PLZ. You should also know Green Roads World is non-GMO. I like the little dropper too- it’s the ideal situation for the oil. & every night, like clockwork- I use it. ( SPECIFICALLY FOR INFLAMMATION & ANXIETY FOR ME ! ).Anyway, like I said I keep the tiny thimble by my bed. While watching my latest show ( The Soprano’s ) or reading my latest book ( Private Parts ), I add a few drops under my tongue- & WHAM I’m immediately relaxed & chill- in the best way possible.
I love the taste too- it tastes delicious to me. Like I bet it would be good in cookies?
