We’ve never been shy on this blog about our love of CBD products.  Bridgette swears by CBD from a company called Modern Medicinals so much so that the company offers blog readers a 10% discount on first-time orders. You can check out that post here. I’ve been using CBD to help me sleep.  But I’ve recently learned CBD products can help with body aches, mental focus, and Seasonal Affective Disorder. 

Dark cold days never used to bother me. But for the past couple of years, New York winters have REALLY been getting to me.  CBD can be used to regulate anxiety and depression brought on by SAD.   Many people dismiss SAD as “the winter blues” but truthfully it’s far more serious that than. 

The Symptoms of SAD include:

  • Not sleeping enough (or sleeping too much)
  • Lack of energy
  • Sadness and hopelessness
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Changes in appetite
  • Inability to focus
  • Loss of interest in one’s favorite pastimes or hobbies

Plant People CBD

I’ve found a new company that I really love.  Plant People was started by Gabe Kennedy and Hudson Gaines-Ross. They discovered that they had both had spinal injuries and the treatment they received from conventional western medicine was not satisfactory.

Not only do their products feature high-quality CBD but they also include herbs specifically chosen for their medicinal qualities. Their Stay Sharp capsules include Rosemary and Ginko Biloba extracts. 

I’ve never used CBD as beauty care but I’ve heard from many people that it is a godsend to people with acne.  If it does such a great job with acne, I imagine it would be great for preventing wrinkles!

If you are new to CBD you can purchase the holiday drops set. It includes mini bottles of the Drops Tincture, the Drops+ Relief Tincture, and the Drops+Sleep Tincture. It’s a perfect way to try out CBD tinctures and find out what works for you. 

And if that’s not enough Plant People partners with the non-profit American Forests, whose mission is to create healthy and resilient forests from cities to wilderness that deliver critical benefits to the environment, people, water and wildlife.  A portion of every sale goes to American Forests.
