Feel sometimes like you might be drinking a little more than you'd like? Here's Kate Smith at Refinery 29, sharing her experience swapping out a glass or two of wine for CBD-infused chocolates.
The night of my Sex and the City binge, I settled in on my couch, turned on HBO, popped a chocolate (I chose the ones from Sakara) and forgot about it. It was kind of huge: The effects of CBD didn't knock me over the way I had felt when I smoked. It wasn't until over an hour later that I realized I was much more relaxed and less anxious than before. I wasn't “high” by any stretch of the imagination; if anything, I was more in control of my thoughts than usual. I was relaxed enough to logically realize that, at 11:30 p.m., there was really no need to check my work email. I'm not that important — and that's a wonderful thing.
A wonderful thing indeed to find relaxation, and not have to deal with a hangover, the calorie intake, the strain on the liver etc. What do you think?
