Selfcare isn’t an indulgence. In fact, practicing radical selfcare is the first step to taking care of others. It is like the oxygen mask theory on airplanes. You must secure your mask before assisting others. Keep scrolling to check out our ultimate guide to selfcare and CBD!
A ritual selfcare practice is on the rise thanks to a renewed focus on mental health. Psychology Today notes “selfcare is a continuous process of proactively considering and tending to your needs and maintaining your wellness.” And, since the rise of CBD wellness products is coinciding with this boom in selfcare, is it any wonder that many are turning to CBD-infused products to combat anxiety, fear, depression, and fatigue?
More Than Bath Bombs
Although bath products can be the stereotypical self-care buy for young women, an entire cosmetic and skincare industry is cropping up around new studies on CBD. Because CBD or cannabidiol occurs naturally in cannabis plants and is a non-psychoactive chemical — that is, it doesn’t make you feel high — you can feel comfortable using it in your everyday routine.
CBD is thought to alleviate inflammation in the body, and topical application of it via skincare products like body oils and facial creams can address common skincare concerns in addition to promoting a feeling of wellness and calm. Look for topical products like eye balms, facial serums and moisturizers, lip butters, and sleeping masks.
But if a 20-minute soak with a CBD-infused bath tea or a CBD salt shower scrub helps you feel more like you, go for it. Check out some of Made By Hemp’s high-quality skincare products by clicking here!
There’s a Gummy for That
While tinctures and other ingestible products can be wonderful additions to your morning coffee, tea, or smoothie, the market for CBD gummies is growing. Because you are processing the CBD through the digestive tract, it might be more slow-acting than a sublingual drop. However, this delivery method is perfect if you have trouble falling or staying asleep.
When paired with other powerhouse ingredients like zinc, vitamin C, elderberry, turmeric, lemon balm, and melatonin, you combine the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD with other wellness actives. Targeted formulas for anxiety and relaxation mean you can take a moment out of your day to enjoy a non-herby flavored, candy-like chew.

It Takes Two
With endless virtual meetings, classes, and schedules to coordinate, selfcare can sometimes take the form of shutting out the world and reconnecting with your intimate partner. If you’re rocking the single life, self-pleasure is the ultimate selfcare.
A survey of digital store shelves shows that intimate wellness products like arousal serums, lube, and aftercare products are incorporating CBD into their formulas. Is it any wonder why? With relaxation and anti-anxiety at the core of what CBD can do in the body, it’s only natural to harness that power for intimate needs.
Since many products that contain CBD are also vegan, gluten-free, and formulated with petrochemicals, you can be reassured that you’re using body-safe formulas in sensitive places.
