We all have stressful days, sleepless nights, and bodies that sometimes hurt. ICYMI, cannabis is your friend.
CBD, as we now know, is an excellent tool to keep you rolling through life’s ups and downs, and with a range of products out there, it’s super easy to integrate it into your existing lifestyle.
CBD reduces feelings of anxiety “by interacting with key receptors in our endocannabinoid system to help regulate behaviors that are associated with fear and anxiety,” says Susan Cleverdon of Humboldt Apothecary, adding that “It is important to note that CBD’s effects on anxiety are bi-phasic. This means that at low doses, it will help alleviate anxious feelings, but at high doses it could actually induce anxiety. It is always advisable for new users to start with small doses and slowly increase until you find your own personal perfect dose.”

3-4oz. ginger beer (depending on cup size)
2 ruby red grapefruit slices
A sprig of fresh mint
Combine the tincture, lime juice, simple syrup, and soda water in a glass and stir to combine. Add a small to medium size grapefruit slice and press against the side of the glass. Fill a mule mug or a rocks glass with ice. (If you want crushed ice, crush in a separate cup with a muddler.) Pour the mixture over the ice. Top with the ginger beer and give it a quick stir.
