The Best CBD Drinks, Oils + More for Relieving Pain and Getting Sleep

By

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."

Sava has all the CBD-infused goods you need to make life just a little more chill, and will deliver everything to your door. Check out a few of our favorite products to promote rest, relaxation, and fun.

Calm anxiety with a delish CBD mocktail.

Try this recipe for an Uplifting Ruby Moscow Mule.

Ingredients

1oz. simple syrup

1oz. soda water

1ml Humboldt Apothecary Blues Away CBD tincture, with a blend of cannabis extract, St. John's wort, lemon balm and Siberian ginseng

1oz. fresh lime juice

3-4oz. ginger beer (depending on cup size)

2 ruby red grapefruit slices

Lime slice

A sprig of fresh mint

Preparation

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. Garnish with lime and mint to serve.

The cannabinoid called CBN is a cousin to CBD, and it's taking the night by (very quiet, restful) storm. Want to get some rest and wake up without grogginess? Try Kikoko's Tranquilitea tea ($40-$56), a blend of CBN, chamomile, a bit of THC, and a touch of magic sleep dust (or at least it feels that way).
