7 CBD Beauty Products You Have to Try
CBD—THC’s non-psychoactive cousin—has gone from taboo to total-wellness staple. Here, our favorite CBD beauty products for spring.
1. Wildflower CBD+Soap & CBD+Coolstick
Wash away whatever’s ailing you (CBD has been known to treat skin conditions ranging from psoriasis to sunburns) and then find your chill with a targeted pain reliever armed with healing arnica, calming peppermint and hemp-seed oils, and 300 mg
CBD, ($30 for pack of 3 soaps, $60 for cooling stick, buywildflower.com).
2. Khus + Khus Sen Face Serum
Reveal radiant, healthy skin with a serum that pulls double duty in the fight against acne and aging. Ruh khus (also known as vetiver) is revered in Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to absorb toxins and balance your doshas, while eco-certified hemp extract may encourage cell turnover ($80, khus-khus.com).
3. Sunday Scaries Vegan AF Gummies For Anxiety
Just a few cruelty-free candies will satisfy your sweet tooth and calm frazzled nerves. These are formulated with vitamins D and B12 to keep both your mood and immune system thriving ($40, forsundayscaries.com).

5. Cannuka CBD Calming Eye Balm
Banish dark circles and puffiness while smoothing away fine lines with this Manuka honey–infused salve. It’s packed with anti-inflammatory hemp-seed oil and vitamin E, so you can get a jump-start on even the sleepiest of sunrises ($38, cannuka.com).
6. Extract Labs CBD Body Cream
Dry skin and muscle tension are no match for this moisturizer that may also heal scrapes and bruises. Major bonus? Ongoing research suggests that CBD staves off skin cancer cells ($50, extractlabs.com).
7. Inda Creations Just Add Honey Gift Set
This meditative duo of hemp-infused raw Vermont honey and organic herbal tea is handcrafted in small batches in the Green Mountain State. Sip them together or soak them in a bath for a sumptuous skin treatment ($125 for set with 4 herbal blends and honey, indacreations.com).

In fact, these clothes are so happy-making, you’ll never want to take them off.
Whether you’re a new or seasoned meditator, you know that meditation is a lot harder than it looks. Focusing on your breath or a mantra and quieting monkey-mind is serious business—and on days when your thoughts get the better of you, it can be easy to fidget. Maybe your foot gets itchy where the seam of your sock hits your pinky toe, or you start to fidget with your shirt. Or, perhaps you start to focus on the too-tight waist band of your yoga pants, or the fact that your undies are bunched in all the wrong places.

While fidgeting is a natural side effect of a meditation practice, particularly when you’re first starting out, you can set yourself up for less of it by meditating in the right clothing. Here, our favorite bottoms, tops, and socks to keep you cozy—and most importantly, supremely comfy—while you meditate.
