As parents we are overwhelmed daily with every area of our life. Add a pandemic, distance learning and working from home and it’s a perfect storm to lose our sh*t. Some of us are working parents having to balance everything while in quarantine. This year, without a doubt parents are stressed out more than they were before pandemic. Some of us have increased our intake of wine and or weed. Myself, I have eliminated alcohol from my grocery list and instead added CBD to the cart. CBD has helped me be a less stressed out parent by easing my anxiety and helping me sleep better. Below is a list of CBD products on the market today that I enjoy and use to prevent me from losing my sh*t.

Need to relieve the body and mind to feel overall relief mentally and physically?
JustCBD has products in every type of ingestible method you can consume. If you need some creams or topicals, they have that too! You name the method of intake and they have it; gummies, honey sticks, tinctures, oils, soaps, creams, vapes etc. My favorite JustCBD items are their gummies. Their gummy products provide CBD dosage ranging from 8mg to 25mg a piece. If you are looking for an all in one shop of CBD goodies, this is the go to online store for it. They also have a line of Vegan products as well as products for pets.
This is a no judgement zone. Parenting is rough and navigating through all we are facing makes parenting even rougher. I’m drowning daily. I’m exhausted mentally and physically. If there is one thing I can point to that has helped me through my anxiety, restless nights and physical body aches, that would be cannabis infused products. I wake up every morning refreshed and ready to take on another crazy day.
