I became a champion of the CBD movement after it helped my husband when little else did. The scientist in me needed to learn more, so I started researching CBD further. Then I signed up for a program so I could become certified as a holistic cannabis practitioner—I knew I needed to learn everything I could to try to understand CBD. The entire time I was working on my certification, I continued to see drastic changes in my practice, and everything I learned reinforced what I saw with my own eyes.
Since then it’s been an amazing ride seeing where CBD has taken my practice, but more importantly, my husband and family. From my husband’s softgels that he takes every day, to the salves I rub on my daughters’ sore muscles from ice skating, to the powder I take during my marathon days, I’m so grateful for new discoveries.

There’s one man I trust when it comes to all my sleep questions, and that’s Dr. Michael Breus. Lucky for me, he’s recently created a new sleep supplement with CBD, valerian root, melatonin and more. Plus it’s a spray, so it’s easy to use right before bed.
Full-Spectrum CBD Powder
Full disclosure: I’m the co-founder of Daily Habit. This is my baby. When I was looking for a CBD product to recommend to my wellness clients, I couldn’t find one that met my entire practice’s needs. So I made my own. Daily Habit provides 10 mg of full-spectrum CBD that easily mixes with any beverage. The day starts well when I use it in my morning coffee.
I like to keep my routine simple because the more I add, the less likely I am to do any of it. But I keep finding time to use this serum because of how it makes my skin feel. I love that the company uses full-spectrum CBD combined with other herbs like calendula and carrot seed.
For bruising, aches and pains, I’ve been using arnica, a sort of European sunflower, for years. It only makes sense to combine it with CBD, and Humble Flower Co. has done just that. It’s meant for post-workout or after a bad night of sleep when the neck hurts.
Vegan CBD Gummies
These vegan gummies are so much fun. The brand is really playful, but it’s all seriousness behind the scenes with its scientific testing and charitable donations to The Bail Project.
CBD Saffron Face Cream
Getting through the winters in New York City is always tough on my skin. The combination of CBD oil and saffron in this product feels so luxurious and soothing, and emerging research is exploring CBD’s potential anti-inflammatory benefits.
Softgels – Raw
My husband’s autoimmune condition was relieved after he started taking CBD. After getting advice from a doctor, we added these softgels to his protocol.
Transparency is a good thing when it comes to CBD companies, and TONIC does it right. Each product comes with a batch number to make it easy to see the analysis from a third-party test of the product.
Hemp CBD-Infused Lip Balm
Using CBD lip balm was my first step toward incorporating CBD into my beauty routine. Vertly’s packaging is what first enticed me to try it. They only use American-grown hemp and add in three different butters to help moisturize.
CBD + Vaporizer – Aches
I had preconceived notions about vaping, but all of them were dispelled when I tried this vape pen. It gets extra points for the addition of essential oils, and the pen itself is discreet and fast-acting.
