Lo Bosworth’s New CBD “Timeout” Line Will Give You The Me Time You Crave

While she won’t be making an appearance on the reboot of The Hills, one of your favorite OGs from the original show is joining the CBD oil craze and has come out with three new CBD oil-infused products to help you chill the heck out. Lo Bosworth’s new CBD line Timeout is an extension of her Love Wellness brand which caters to the self-care needs of women.

As mentioned, Timeout includes three new products: Timeout CBD Bath Salts, Timeout CBD Supplement, and Timeout CBD Oil Supplement. Each of the three products are designed to help you deal with stress management in a natural way, so it’s only right that the new collection has launched in April, the month that has been deemed “Stress Awareness Month”. The trio is already available on LoveWellness.co and will be available in-stores and online at Urban Outfitters on Saturday, April 20.

If you’re not yet familiar with how CBD oil works in supplements, the oil is derived from cannabis leaves and infused in supplements and when ingested, it helps regulate your central nervous system development, as well as your body’s responses to internal and external factors and stressors. On the other hand, you’ve also probably heard of CBD oil-infused makeup and skincare products which use the oil to calm, moisturize, and revitalize your skin. Considering Lo’s new collection is made up of both supplements and a skincare item, ahead, I’ve provided a breakdown of each product and how it works.

Timeout CBD Bath Salts

Timeout CBD Bath Salts

Nothing helps one de-stress like a long, soothing bubble bath. Well now, thanks to the Timeout CBD Bath Salts, you can get an extra boost of relaxation. The bath salts are infused with eucalyptus oil, jojoba oil, and CBD oil to help sooth and heal the skin and inflammation.

Timeout CBD Supplement

Timeout CBD Supplement

These capsules are designed to reduce stress, relax your muscles, and encourage a restful night of sleep. They’re made up of 100% organic, non-GMO CBD derived from hemp and will give you a timeout that you can look forward to.

Timeout CBD Oil Supplement

Timeout CBD Oil Supplement

This flavorless oil can be dropped into your mouth or mixed in with a drink like your morning coffee. It’s made up of 99% pure CBD isolate and is paired with MCT oil to promote stress relief and to help relieve arthritis, inflammation, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and digestive issues.

It’s worth noting that the claims made by the Timeout line haven’t been approved by the Food and Drug Administration yet so, as with any supplement, you should check with your doctor prior to starting. However, as someone who has given CBD oils a whirl, you will likely find yourself feeling a lot more relaxed and free of stress after taking them.

Lo’s new Timeout line joins the rest of her Love Wellness collection which includes supplements like Bye Bye Bloat, a supplement designed to help you de-bloat and digest foods more smoothly, Good Girl Probiotics, a probiotic designed to be used as a preventative against various infections, and Good to Glow, a supplement jam-packed with vitamins that your skin craves. So if you find yourself in need of a major self-care supplement overhaul, Love Wellness definitely won’t let you down — just like Lo never let LC down.

Where to Try CBD-Infused Burgers, Tacos, Booze and More This Weekend

Colorado is eminent for a few fine things — namely, our majestic mountains, fabulous venues, and — let’s be honest — cannabis. Since the revolutionary legalization of this widely celebrated herb, cannabis-related creations have consistently made their way into everyday products and places. Moreover, CBD, the non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid derived from cannabis, has attracted a dedicated following. Naturally, Denver has become the premier location for discovering CBD in everything from menu items to self-care specialties. In fact, luxurious CBD staycations, CBD cocktails, and even CBD tacos are currently more tangible than ever. To celebrate 4/20 and the noble quest to minimize pain, maximize relaxation and promote overall wellness — let’s take a look at a few places with prime CBD offerings in the Mile High City.

The Lowdown: CBD at Carl’s Jr.? If this sentence sounds perplexing, it may be necessary to pay a visit to the Carl’s Jr. location on 4050 Colorado Boulevard to see and taste for yourself. This major fast-food chain has jumped on the CBD-bandwagon for our beloved 4/20 festivies with the Rocky Mountain High CheeseBurger Delight — a Denver-exclusive option featuring two charbroiled beef patties paired with Carl’s Jr. signature Santa Fe Sauce infused with hemp-based CBD oil, pickled jalapeños, pepper jack cheese and Crisscut fries. Just to keep it local, the hemp-derived CBD oil used in this special sauce is sourced from Colorado-based company, Bluebird Botanicals. Did we mention it will only set you back ($4.20), April 20 only, while supplies last? Yeah. Happy holidays.

Where: 1201 Broadway, Denver

The Lowdown: Sweet dreams are made of…CBD? As it turns out — the ART hotel has curated a package promoting the concept of naturally decompressing with CBD.  For a starting rate of ($209), the CBDreams package provides guests with goods from local artisans to elevate their stay in one of the ART’s delightfully decorative rooms. This includes a specialty CBD cocktail featuring Strongwater infusions from the hotel’s restaurant, FIRE, along with a soothing in-room CBD wellness healing pack. What might this entail? For starters—tea and healing balm by Flora’s Mercantile, honey sticks by Colorado Hemp Honey, calming lotion and lip buzz lip balm by Apothecanna and CBD soda and adaptogen sparkling water by DRAM.
The collective calmness continues in the morning with a continental breakfast and guaranteed late checkout—because—you know why.

The Lowdown: Another Colorado summer means Red Rocks season is upon us.

Two words: CBD tacos. No, your vision isn’t fuzzy — or at least we hope not. Nomad is actually offering a special taco with ginger, soy and CBD-infused mahi mahi complimented by roasted habanero, pineapple pico de gallo and micro cilantro. Check it out on the road to Red Rocks until June.

What is CBD, and why is it popping up on Atlanta cocktail menus?

CBD cocktails Atlanta

Lately, CBD—or cannabidiol, a derivative of hemp—has been incorporated into all kinds of products from dog treats to bath bombs. You can even get a CBD pedicure at Lark & Sparrow nail salon in Grant Park. CBD cocktails and other drinks have been slowly appearing on menus across Atlanta. Floral Park Market sells CBD-infused kombucha, as does Golda Kombucha’s West End taproom, Cultured South. Rev Coffee in Smyrna has been adding CBD to lattes, and restaurants such as Bocado, Sweet Auburn BBQ, and Big Sky Buckhead have been serving CBD cocktails for the past several months.

For those wondering if CBD is synonymous with marijuana: no, it is not. CBD comes from the same plant as marijuana, but contains less than 0.3 percent of tetrahydrocannabinol (TCH), the chemical that produces a high. Thanks to a national Farm Bill passed in 2014, states can elect to grow industrial hemp, and CBD oil can be transported and sold in different states. It doesn’t have hallucinogenic properties, but instead just serves as a relaxant. It’s also not the same thing as low-THC oil, or medical marijuana, whose use for qualifying patients became legal in Georgia in 2015.

Jeremy Watruba, cofounder of Brookhaven-based Recharg3d CBD products, first became interested in CBD when he noticed his fellow gym mates using it as a form of recovery. Seeing a business opportunity, he left his job in insurance sales to get in on the CBD game.

“It’s non-psychoactive, but a lot of people associate [CBD with] the effects of THC, so they’re scared off initially,” Watruba says. “The most common thing people experience [with CBD] is improved sleep because that’s probably what most people are lacking.”

Watruba has also found that people use CBD to reduce muscle soreness and anxiety. Some studies, like this one, have shown that using cannabis oil without THC may be a more effective pain management fighter than with it. But just what, exactly, you might feel while using CBD varies from person to person.

“What I can tell you is what it’s done for me, and what it’s done for everyone that I’ve spoken to,” Watruba says. “There are some positive benefits you can experience, but it’s going to vary.”

Big Sky Buckhead uses Recharg3d’s CBD in its CBD drinks. “It’s just cool,” says co-owner Adam Berlin, noting that he and Juan Calle were inspired to add a CBD cocktail to the menu from travels to the West Coast. They also drew inspiration from Sweetwater’s 420 Strain G13 beer, which doesn’t contain any CBD but does have a weed-like pungency. “I don’t think I’ve seen that strong of a response for a beer before,” Berlin says of when Big Sky put the local brew on tap.

Big Sky’s CBD cocktail is named the Green Fairy, a nod to another formerly taboo substance, absinthe, which became legal in the United States in 2007. Boozy and herbal with strong notes of star anise, the drink is a blend of absinthe, lemon juice, aquafaba (chickpea water), simple syrup, and hopped grapefruit bitters for added spunky aroma. Droplets of CBD oil are floated on top of the drink. “We didn’t want it to be like a frozen margarita where, sometimes you’re like, is there any tequila in this? We want you to see the CBD,” Berlin says. The bar plans to add another CBD cocktail to the menu later this year.

Jasmine Beck, owner of food truck and catering company Sunshine Alchemy, is another CBD enthusiast who has started incorporating it into cocktails. One of the food truck’s go-to stops is at Colony Square, where CBD boosters—smoothies or juices with a high-dose oil— are a hit with people on their lunch break. “I like to think we offer them something legal and newly available that can help them deal with the stress that they have to walk back into,” says Beck. At private events, she often mixes CBD isolate, which has a cleaner flavor than the full-spectrum oil, in cocktails of all varieties.

While CBD has allure, it may still be awhile before it becomes a commonplace item at Atlanta bars. The product is expensive (at Sweet Auburn BBQ, a Jeffery cocktail with CBD oil added costs a whopping $20), and some restaurants might find it too risqué to put on their menus. After all, even though only minuscule amounts of THC are present, Recharg3d warns that you could test positive on a drug test. (The FDA also doesn’t allow it in foods sold across state lines—think packaged snacks or drinks.)

At the end of the day, Berlin says, it’s about fun. “I’ve had the serving [of CBD] we use mixed with just water, to see [if it did anything], and I think I felt a slight relaxation. But we’re not making any special claims in it, other than it’s cool.”

CBD oil may be able to help you fall asleep and stay asleep for a good night’s rest.

This page will present a range of information on the benefits of CBD oil for sleep and insomnia that is intended to educate and guide you towards making an informed decision. But like any change to your health regimen, it’s best to talk to your doctor before you begin using CBD oil.

Effectiveness of Using CBD Oil to Help You Sleep

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are two of over 100 cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. These two substances are the most familiar to the average person and are most closely associated with smoking marijuana. THC produces an intoxicating effect and is largely responsible for the sensation of being ‘high.’ CBD, in contrast, does not have an intoxicating effect, and will not negatively impact your mental or physical capabilities. In short, CBD oil will not get you high.  

CBD oil works indirectly on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system, as well as non-cannabinoid receptors, ultimately prompting a range of beneficial internal responses.

CBD Oil for Anxiety

CBD oil can help calm anxiety that keeps you awake at night. Whether you are experiencing mild stress and anxiety related to something specific, or suffer from an anxiety disorder like post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), CBD shows promising, calming, results.

In a 2019 retrospective review of the effect of CBD on 103 individuals with anxiety or sleep disorders, CBD was found to reduce anxiety scores by 79.2% and improve sleep scores by 66.7% with limited side effects over the course of three months. The conclusion reads, “In this evaluation, CBD appears to be better tolerated than routine psychiatric medications. Furthermore, CBD displays promise as a tool for reducing anxiety in clinical populations…”

So, if stress and anxiety are keeping you from falling asleep, CBD oil may be able to mitigate your symptoms and help you get to bed.

CBD Oil for Reducing Pain

One of the ways CBD oil can help you sleep is by reducing physical pain symptoms. Sufferers of chronic or acute pain know all too well how difficult it can be to fall asleep. Traditional pain medications like opioids can provide relief but they also have negative side effects and can be highly addictive. CBD oil does not have these same risks.

Glycine receptors, located in the central nervous system, are inhibitory receptors that play a significant role in your perception of pain. CBD has been shown to affect these receptors in a way that reduces inflammation and neuropathic pain (pain associated with the nervous system). CBD also inhibits equilibrative nucleoside transporter 1 (ENT1), which slows the reuptake of the neurotransmitter adenosine. Ultimately, this impacts adenosine receptors in a way that helps to reduce inflammation throughout the body, lessening the pain that’s keeping you from a good night’s sleep.

CBD Oil for REM Behavior Disorder

More than reducing pain and anxiety, CBD oil can help reduce REM behavior disorder (RBD), which is sometimes associated with illnesses like Parkinson’s Disease. REM behavior disorder causes people to move around and physically act out what they’re dreaming about. This movement can lead to sleep disturbances and injury to oneself and any person who may be sharing the bed.

In a 2014 study, CBD was shown to reduce the symptoms and movement associated with RBD, resulting in a more restful and restorative sleep for the test subjects. These promising results may be reason enough for you to try CBD oil as an RBD treatment.

Benefits of Using CBD Oil for Sleep and Insomnia

Sleep is an incredibly important activity for human beings and also one of the hardest to come by. Working long hours, not exercising enough, eating processed foods, and staring at television, computer, and cellphone screens all disrupt the natural circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle) of your body. This disruption can make it difficult to fall asleep and prevent you from entering the deeper stages of sleep, which are crucial for a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Luckily, CBD oil may help promote relaxation, allowing you some quality shut-eye.

Why Sleep Is Important

When you sleep, your body performs a variety of functions to maintain and repair everything from your memory to your muscles.

Lack of sleep can negatively affect your memory and overall mental wellbeing. A review of numerous sleep-related studies focused on the effects of sleep deprivation in the human brain. In numerous studies, lack of sleep often corresponded to reduced reaction times, difficulty paying attention, decreased reasoning skills, and poor memory. When you get enough sleep, your brain is able to fully recharge before wakefulness, which allows you to function at your highest potential.

Sleep also regulates hormones like leptin and ghrelin, which directly correspond to metabolism and can significantly impact your weight. In a 2004 study, test subjects who slept for shorter periods of time (less than 7-8 hours) had unbalanced leptin and ghrelin levels that corresponded to a higher body mass index (BMI). So, getting enough sleep is crucial to maintaining a healthy body weight.

Finally, much of your physical body is in recovery and repair mode while you sleep. During slumber, muscles are repaired, grown, and regenerated, meaning some shut-eye is crucial to recovery after exercise or muscular injury. Too, in a 2014 study researchers found significant cellular damage in the liver, lungs, and intestines of sleep-deprived rats and stated, “We speculate that these outcomes may be borne out in humans…”

Because sleep is so important, it is—or should be—a top priority. If you’re having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, there are a variety of treatment options out there; however, CBD oil may offer some benefits other medications cannot.

CBD Oil vs. Sleeping Pills

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Research Society recommend adults get between 7 and 9 hours of sleep for optimal mental and physical function. Unfortunately, this can be hard to do.

Improving your sleep hygiene by making small changes to your daily habits may be the key to unlocking your sleep potential. Some adjustments might include drinking less caffeine during the day, turning off electronics (phone, computer, TV) at least an hour before bedtime, meditating, and getting some form of physical exercise. However, if these methods aren’t eliciting the results you and your doctor were hoping for, or if you have a sleep disorder like insomnia or sleep apnea, you may be prescribed sleeping pills (e.g. Ambien or Lunesta).  

Sleeping pills are classified as sedative hypnotics, meaning they help you fall asleep and stay asleep. While they can be effective for treating conditions like chronic insomnia, sleeping pills come with a long laundry list of negative side effects, including:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Attention and memory issues
  • Parasomnia (sleepwalking)

Sleeping pills can also become addictive for some people, which then presents a spectrum of other issues.

CBD oil presents none of these side effects and is not addictive. (In fact, CBD oil was found to actually help prevent relapses in a recent study performed on rats.) CBD oil presents little to no negative side effects and the World Health Organization has stated, “CBD is generally well tolerated with a good safety profile.”

So, if you’ve tried sleeping pills and weren’t happy with the results or side effects, or if you want to try a more natural sleep aid, CBD oil may be the supplement you’ve been waiting for. As with any new treatment, consult your doctor before adding CBD oil to your sleep regimen as CBD can interact with certain prescription medications.

By putting time and effort into getting a good night’s sleep, you’re ensuring your brain and body will function at their highest and healthiest potential.

How to Take CBD Oil for Sleep and Insomnia

Before trying CBD oil as a sleep aid, consult your physician. If you’re looking for a secondary opinion or want more information on CBD oil as a health supplement, you can also speak to a cannabis doctor.

When you’re ready to start adding CBD oil to your sleep regimen, you’ll have to decide which form to take it in. You have a variety of options including vape, drops, tincture, capsules, and edibles. Of all these ingestion methods, capsules and edibles will yield the longest lasting effects. However, since they need to be digested by your body, capsules and edibles will also take the longest to kick in. Vaping, on the other hand, will elicit change almost immediately, but also wear off the soonest. You’ll have to experiment with the different administration methods and CBD brands to find what works best for you and your sleep routine. (Be sure to do your research and only purchase from CBD oil brands that produce high-quality products.)

When it comes to CBD oil dosage, it’s important to understand that there is no universal dose. Because no two people are the same, no two people will respond to CBD oil in the exact same way. So, start by taking the dosage recommended on your CBD oil product; if you’re having trouble finding a starting dosage, we recommend the following, having tested hundreds of CBD products:

The CBD Oil Review Serving Standard is 25 mg taken twice daily.

If you are not getting results from this amount, we recommend increasing the serving size by 25mg every 3-4 weeks until you find relief.

11 Cannabis Beauty and CBD Beauty Products and What They Actually Do – WWD

Beauty’s obsession with CBD isn’t slowing down.

CBD — the shortened term for cannabidiol — has become one of the hottest ingredients in beauty, popping up in different types of skin care, color cosmetics and wellness supplements as consumer interest in the plant’s purported benefits increases rapidly.

Brands are tapping into cannabis and its many ingredient extracts with varying levels of CBD — including hemp seed oil, which contains no actual CBD  — and now with the upcoming 4/20 “holiday,” brands are attracting customers with a slew of new products that promote relaxation, anti-inflammation and soothing qualities.

The earthy scent also includes notes of pink pepper, lemon, violet leaf and vetiver and retails for $85 for a 15-ml. bottle and $185 for a 50-ml. bottle.

A 30-ml. bottle goes for $100.

CBD Beauty, 4/20
