A few years ago, I was in a car accident and struggled with lower back and neck pain. I went through months of physical therapy, chiropractic, and massage therapy. And while these treatments were somewhat helpful, progress just wasn’t coming fast enough in the way that I had hoped…especially with me being so young. I don't know about y'all, but I do not have three hours and hundreds of dollars a week to spend for the rest of my life on an injury. Here is where CBD & ME comes in. :)

CBD & ME is a small business local to Fayetteville, Arkansas and 100% women-owned. How awesome is that? So, not only was trying out their products effectively supporting a small business and female entrepreneurs, my purchase really did help me feel better! I would not describe it as a fix to my pain or a cure, but these products have helped me so much, I thought I'd answer a few of your most common questions and share some additional feedback about the line, in case it helps any of you, too!


What is CBD?

CBD is a cannabinoid which is extracted from the hemp plant (basically marijuana’s sober cousin). It’s a naturally occurring plant-based chemical that has the potential for a multitude of therapeutic benefits for body and mind. I'm by no means an expert, so I would consider doing additional research on it, if you feel it’s necessary!

Will CBD get me high?

The amount of people who brought this up made me laugh—maybe it’s because I’m from Colorado, but no! CBD will not get you high.

What products have you tried?

I’ve tried the following CBD & ME wellness products…500 mg/oz infused oil roller, and 500 mg/oz balm as well as the 50 mg/oz hand sanitizer, 4 oz elderberry tonic (with no CBD). They offer a few other products I haven't tried yet, such as the 1 oz hint of almond dietary supplement drops or “tinctures” and a variety of pet formulas. I’ve also tried their sister beauty brand, Hydro Hemp Company’s premium dry root face mask for polishing and brightening. I can’t wait to try their new facial serum coming out next.
