I’ll admit that I was a CBD skeptic before I tried it. I fully expected to lump it into the pile of natural remedies that didn’t work for me, such as melatonin for sleep and echinacea for a cold. And at first, it seemed that CBD was going that way, as well. But after sampling several different types for a few weeks each, I can honestly say that these all did what they said they would do, at least to some degree, from soothing ski-weary muscles to increased clarity and attention span to the king of all promises—better, more restful sleep.
This month is Mental Health Awareness month, and there’s no time like the present to invest in your emotional and psychological well-being. God knows, it’s been a year like no other. These CBD options are a small price to pay for a better state of mind, on and off the slopes.
