No matter how passionate you are about your job, at the end of the day, work is still work. Which means it can cause all kinds of stress and related physical and emotional manifestations. But thanks to the growing availability of CBD products, it’s easier than ever to reap the anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory benefits to stay calm, cool, and collected—at least from nine to five.

1. CBD + Turmeric Tincture – 2Rise Naturals 

Consider this your new way to start the day. The combination of turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory powers, along with the relaxing benefits of CBD, kick things off on a mellow note with just a few drops of the super-concentrated formula taken sublingually. Let the tincture sit under your tongue for about a minute to maximize bioavailability—or your body’s ability to absorb it.

2. Calming Body Oil – Apothecanna

The best time to moisturize your skin is as soon as your get out of the shower—ideally when skin is still damp. If you use a body oil, the occlusive ingredients will not only trap hydrating ingredients into the skin, but prevent moisture loss too. The soothing combination of lavender, chamomile, and frankincense extract makes moisturizing a full-on sensory experience while also helping you chill out before the day gets crazy. And no, cannabis-infused topicals will not make you high.

Here, CBD is mixed with revitalizing peppermint essential oil and calming lavender essential oil to help mitigate headaches, inflammation, and mid-meeting pain in mere minutes. It’s also a popular one for bedtime, so try both and see what works for your composition—everyone is different.
