The Only 10 CBD Products That Are Worth Your Money, According to Our Editors

CBD facial oil. CBD body lotion. CBD mascara. CBD sparkling water. CBD-infused leggings. (I'll let that one sink in.) Needless to say, there's a dizzying number of cannabidiol products on the market these days, which makes it near impossible to decipher the legit products from the ones that are nothing more than glorified marketing ploys. But if you ask us, the healing properties of CBD can't be denied. Even the experts agree. We chatted Diana Tsui, the editorial director at MedMen, who shared that even though the dispensary's customers look to CBD for a range of reasons, it's become a popular choice for everything from helping with sleep to post-workout recovery to quieting an anxious mind. 

As with any new supplement, though, Tsui recommends checking in with your doctor first. Everybody has a unique set of needs, and part of shopping for CBD is figuring out what your aim is in taking it. Are you trying to quiet some of the mental chatter? Ease sore muscles? Achieve an overall zen and wellness?

Whatever your goal, Tsui says to start low and slow. "Give it time to kick in before you add more. A 30-milligram capsule or tincture is a great starting point if you’re looking to calm your mind or help with sleep," she advises. "If you’re aching from a hard workout or bad cramps, try a balm, like the one from Papa & Barkley. A nickel-size amount can hold off the aches for two to three hours." For anxiety, Tsui suggests trying out the Wyld Pomegranate gummies: "They’re equal parts CBD and THC, meaning they’re a bit stronger if you want something that’ll really relax you."

Now let's talk products. We're a beauty- and wellness-minded bunch over here, and between new vitamins, supplements, and beauty products, we've just about tested it all—which means that a significant number of CBD products have crossed our desks at one point or another.

Of course, not every supplement we've tried has won us over (and some of our editors have tried a lot of different supplements), but with an oversaturated market for CBD and, more often than not, consumers who don't know enough about what it is and how to use it, there's a huge knowledge gap in this area of the wellness world. So we thought we might as well peel back the curtain and share the 10 best CBD products our editors and staffers have tried and loved and are recommending to all their friends. Whether you want more glowing, balanced skin or a way to ease life's daily stressors, we got you.

Ahead, the best CBD products from our team and exactly why we love each of them. Keep scrolling!
