Have you noticed that CBD is absolutely everywhere? Those three little letters have really taken the world by storm in the past few years and for very good reasons. It has shed the stigma that marijuana has had attached to it for a very long time and brought the innumerable benefits to the forefront of the conversation.

So you’ve heard the name CBD, but do you really know what it is? Odds are, you’re not the only one! It may be a buzzword, but it can actually be kind of confusing to understand just what you’re getting when you buy or take CBD.

Cannabidiol is the major non-psychoactive component of the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa. CBD can also be derived from the hemp plant, but the more effective version is derived from Cannabis sativa. Hemp-derived CBD will certainly still have some benefits, but, where possible, we always recommend CBD that comes from Cannabis sativa. And, while it is the new darling of the health world, people have been using CBD for thousands of years in natural healing to address a whole host of issues from swelling to inflammation to pain.

Because we care so very much about helping you become the healthiest, happiest version of you, we thought it was about damn time that we officially get on the CBD train. Sure you’ve been able to order one of our most popular smoothies, the Cannabis in a Cup, for quite some time now. With banana, coconut meat, kale, papaya and coconut water, plus a little cinnamon and date for a hit of sweetness, the CBD oil shines. But now, you can also add CBD to any of our other smoothies or even buy a bottle to take home. It’ll be available in two different sizes, so you can choose your own adventure.

Want to know a little more about the benefits of this oil that’s practically magical? Well, keep reading. We’ve got you covered!


Keep calm and carry on. The Brits no longer have sole claim to this idea. Now that we’ve got the CBD oil in store, it’s our motto too. CBD is basically your own personal chill pill. Regular consumption has been shown to reduce stress and overall anxiety, helping you to feel a bit calmer, a bit more centred.


Pain, pain go away. Nobody likes to feel pain, particularly when it’s constant, consistent pain. Thank god for CBD then because if its calming properties weren’t enough to spark your interest, then surely its abilities to reduce both inflammation and chronic pain will. Studies have reported promising results in pain reduction in even the most serious cases of MS, arthritis and cancer.

Catch some Zzzs. We’ve waxed rhapsodic about the benefits of getting enough restful sleep time and time again, so it’ll come as no surprise that CBD’s sleep-promoting properties really appeal to us. If you struggle to fall or stay asleep, then CBD could be just what you’re looking for. Incorporate a bit of it into your daily routine, and we promise you’ll notice a marked difference in your sleep habits.

Clear the way for clear skin. We’re totally hopping on the clean skincare bandwagon and now trying to pack our diets with as many beauty-boosting minerals as we can, but CBD is also fantastic for improving your skin. Research has shown that CBD can be effective in clearing both acne and psoriasis. Because it decreases lipid synthesis and has an anti-inflammatory effect on sebaceous glands, any blemishes or constant skin issues you have will be improved by daily CBD consumption. It also helps to reduce the growth of keratinocyte skin cells. You’ll be glowing in no time.

Be a fighter. This may be the most impressive skill CBD has: the ability to fight cancer, auto-immunity, neurodegenerative diseases and symptoms of schizophrenia. Need we say more?
