CBD oil has been in the news, on billboards, and online everywhere you look these days. Unless you’ve been living in a dark hole, it’s hard to miss. If you don’t know what it is, it’s an oil derived from the marijuana “hemp” plant. Baby Boomers are well familiar with pot but are now using CBD oil to relieve pain, reduce stress, side effects of cancer treatments, heart health and even to get rid of acne.
It’s one of 104 chemical compounds that come from the marijuana plant. (Cannabis sativa) The compound is extracted and then diluted using a carrier oil like coconut or hemp seed. CBD oil won’t make you high because it doesn’t contain THC which is another cannabinoid compound.
Joy Organics has a full line of broad and full-spectrum CBD tinctures, topicals, gummies, and pet products.
One product that I found helpful was their CBD Softgels with Curcumin. It combines the best of anti-inflammatories made from natural products. If you are feeling achy, give them a try.
If you prefer a topical for pain, try their Organic CBD Salve. It will also help with dry or cracked skin and smells like a high-end spa. Ingredients include lavender, eucalyptus, coconut, and hemp. The product is USDA certified organic hemp.
Smilyn is a wellness brand that simplifies the benefits of CBD premium hemp extract. It combines scientific data with health-based knowledge. Their CBD Daily Kit comes with fruit gummies, facemask, soft gels, and the tincture of your c for all your wellness needs. This is a great bundle to start with because you get a sampling of what’s available.

CBD for pets
Smilyn Premium hemp extract doggy treats – veterinarian-formulated with CBD oil. If you have an older dog or any dog with muscle or arthritis pain, these treats will help them feel better and help get rid of inflammation. It also mellows out a hyperactive dog or one that is stressed out.
I don’t recommend vaping and am not promoting vape products. Please see this health warning by ABC News.
