Extra tips:

✔ Cannabidiol or CBD is one of the most studied cannabinoids found in Cannabis Sativa. In pre-clinical or animal studies, CBD has shown anti-inflammatory properties, improve motor activity, decrease anxiety, among other benefits.


✔ Reheat your CBD golden milk on the stove over medium heat. High temperatures released by the microwave may alter the quality of your CBD oil.


✔ Turmeric and CBD oil are best absorbed when mixed with a source of fat.
