CBD has recently gained much popularity as a natural remedy. It's everywhere these days, for good reason: it's seriously good for you. We've recently been turned on to Dr. Sebi's Cell Food, an herbal wellness brand that's announced a new range of high-quality, full-spectrum hemp and CBD products, made using natural whole-plant-matter and hemp seed oil.
The brand was founded by herbalist and naturalist Dr. Sebi, who, even when legal access to marijuana was limited, believed in the plant's medicinal power, saying, "Marijuana cures 20-plus diseases."
CBD's manifold health benefits encompass everything from soothing sore muscles, to helping you get a better night's sleep. It's also been shown to reduce anxiety and depression, and has proven anti-inflammatory effects. There's even evidence that it can help to balance hormone levels, due to its intricate reactions with your body's own endocannabinoid system.
As a refresher, CBD — aka cannabidiol — is a component of cannabis sativa. And while, yes, it can help you chill out, it's not intended to get you high. That's because it's THC (aka tetrahydrocannabinol) that's the psychoactive part of marijuana. Most CBD products incorporate trace amounts of THC or none at all, and its THC that's responsible for the psychoactive effects of marijuana. This is in large part why hemp-derived CBD is completely legal in all 50 states.
It's also worth pointing out that not all CBD products are created equal: We're particular fans of full-spectrum CBD (as opposed to CBD isolate). The term "full-spectrum" in this case refers to the fact that this CBD contains all the cannabis plant's natural compounds. These natural compounds are thought to work together and boost each other's efficacy, which is something called the "entourage effect."
If you're interested in using CBD to help with anxiety, you might want to try Dr. Sebi's Cell Food's capsules or soft gels. Or if you're looking for a sleep aid, perhaps a CBD-infused sublingual tincture is more your speed. Keep reading to find the best CBD products for your routine...

This tincture basically does it all — with 1000MG of full-spectrum CBD, it's ideal for relieving pain and inflammation, as well as allaying anxiety, depression and insomnia. These drops are also made with hemp seed oil, which has anti-inflammatory and hormone-balancing effects of its own. The tincture is designed to help support a healthy cardiovascular system, and since it has less than 0.3 percent THC, you don't have to worry about it affecting your mental clarity.
Looking for a stronger dose? This option has double the concentration of full-spectrum CBD. It has much the same effects as its lower-dosed counterpart except, well, more. So if 1000MG isn't quite taking care of your chronic back pain or helping you to fall asleep at night, it might be worth upgrading to 2000MG! FYI, it also contains less than 0.3 percent THC, so again, no need to worry about getting "high."
These capsules offer another delivery method for your pain- and anxiety-reducing full-spectrum CBD (5MG per capsule this time). They also contain raw hemp, which delivers chlorophyll and polyphenols that have cleansing and anti-inflammatory properties, helping to nourish and protect the body.
Some prefer soft gels to regular capsules — which is where these guys shine! Each soft gel contains 10MG of CBD and nourishing hemp seed oil, providing rapid pain relief and profound calming effects that can help mitigate the anxiety and stress we're all feeling these days. A mood boost and some restful sleep? Just what the doctor (Dr. Sebi that is) ordered!
