You may have heard some of the buzz about CBD oil lately. And for good reason! CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is derived from the hemp plant and contains natural anti-inflammatory chemicals that are known antioxidants and neuroprotectants. And from the relaxing CBD Oil Hot Chocolate at The End Brooklyn (also home of the famous Unicorn Latte) to using CBD oil for sore muscles—cannabis-inspired wellness products are becoming more and more prevalent.
So what's so great about CBD oil? For starters, hemp-derived CBD oil is thought to help with ailments ranging from insomnia to anxiety and stress. Not to mention: It doesn't get you high. And that's because it's virtually absent of THC, which is what gives marijuana its psychoactive effects. CBD products products are safe for the whole family (even pets!) and their products are legal to buy in 50 states, in retailers and online—without a prescription. Target.com is currently carrying four products in both liquid- and capsule-form, and we don't know about you, but we'll be keeping an eye out for more.
