The Ultimate Guide to CBD in the New Year (2 of 2)

Shopping for CBD products at gas stations, bodegas, and corner stores is usually not a wise idea. The internet has plenty of top-quality products from hundreds, probably thousands, of brands.

There are a few important things you should do: Check the product pages on the website you’re browsing for certificates of analysis (or CoAs), confirm that the testing was performed at a third-party lab, and make sure the last test is recent. Once you get the hang of CBD shopping, it’s a breeze. Until then, you’re more than welcome to check out our guide whenever you need.

We would be remiss if we didn’t show you the best CBD vape pen on the market, (in our opinion, of course.) Foria recently relaunched their Intimacy Botanical Vape Pen. The package comes with a one gram cartridge, gorgeous battery, and USB charger. 

Each cartridge contains 450mg of broad-spectrum CBD and terpenes, which come from USDA-organic hemp. Along with the usual benefits CBD provides, the botanical infusion with notes of peppermint, vanilla, and cacao can help keep you focused on the present moment, and in turn, enhance your sex life and elevate erotic enjoyment. $78

Looking to pamper yourself? Humble Flower’s 500mg broad-spectrum Body Oil leaves your skin feeling moisturized, velvety, and comforted. Our skin is better at retaining moisture when it’s still damp, so for best results, apply a generous amount all over your body after showering. We massage extra sore areas a bit harder for much needed localized pain relief. With subtle scents of ylang ylang and lavender, a deep inhale after application provided us with relaxation, too. This is an essential product to keep near your bathtub. $80
