At an @iamwellandgood talk last month at @theassemblagenyc, I learned about why CBD is a growing trend in the health and wellness community and ways it can be used in your daily ritual. Cannabidiol, abbreviated CBD, is one constituent of the cannabis plant, aka Mary Jane/marijuana/weed/pick your own street name. It is separated from THC (the constituent of cannibis that gets you high), so ingesting CBD will not give you a body high. However, there are many health and wellness benefits from ingesting CBD that I can testify to through my own experimentation. Plus, I have great friends who have tried it and speak highly of it as well!
One of the products that I am experimenting with is called “The Daily Hit”, sold at @capbeautydaily (and maybe other places?). This beautiful blend can be taken daily and may balance stress, support greater energy, and sharpen focus. The greatest benefit I’ve received from taking it is a feeling of calm, tempering my usually anxiety-driven lifestyle. A friend who has had long-term tension in her shoulders said that after taking her daily hit, she immediately had an instant desire to stretch and move her shoulders (shout-out to the benefits of yoga too!) Another close friend (and an inspiration for my herbal journey) @ambercsmith_ took some and her mental fog dissipated. The week she took the daily hit was completely different (lighter, happier) than the previous week.
While I recommend testing out The Daily Hit so you can speak to your own experience, I will say the price point is a little high ($114). If you are not willing to splurge yet, I’ll be looking out for more affordable CBD products. The price point may reflect the other wonderful herbs in the hit, such as astragalus root (an adaptogen that balances stress and supports the immune system) and red reishi mushroom. Because of the reishi, you should take this before bed, as reishi supports sound sleep.
@capbeautydaily in New York and @apothecanna in Denver collaborated to create and sell the product online. If you live in New York, check out Cap Beauty in the village; their store is super cute.

Starting this rainy Melbourne day with a 10 min mediation 💫... We are currently using the @calm app which is a great tool if you struggle to sit in absolute silence. Meditation is a great way to quieten the mind and completely disconnect, it’s an opportunity to focus on your breath and nourish your inner being. If you have been feeling stressed, anxious and wired lately maybe give meditation a go, it’s helped us a lot. 🖤 now it’s brunch time.. ☺️🥐 #gratitude #mindfulness #meditation #stillness
