CBD has a lot to offer us. The miraculous hemp-derived compound is known for its ability to treat a wide variety of symptoms, including, but not limited to: chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Along with CBD, there’s an exhaustive list of naturally occurring herbs and botanicals that contain healing properties. That’s why many CBD brands mix additional botanicals into their products.
How do Botanicals Mix with CBD?
Herbs and botanicals can be blended with CBD in a variety of different ways. Whether added to tinctures, included in beauty products, or dried and blended with smokable hemp, there are dozens of herbs that you can enjoy alongside CBD.
At Silver Rain, most of our high-potency CBD tinctures include other botanical extracts in them. We pair these extracts according to the properties apparent in the herb that they are derived from.
For example, our “Sweet Dreams” tincture includes not only CBD, but chamomile and lavender extract, two herbs known for their ability to promote relaxation and act as a sleep aid. Similarly, our “Jump” formula contains peppermint oil and rosemary extract, to help reduce inflammation, stimulate circulation, and support an active lifestyle.
In general, we carefully craft all of our CBD tinctures to include the perfect blend of botanical extracts to get the job done.
Like our tinctures, our CBD topicals include natural botanical additives to boost their effectiveness.
Our “Move” joint relief spray utilizes a variety of botanical oils that aid in CBD’s anti-inflammatory capabilities. Similarly, our “Recharge” muscle relief roll-on includes eucalyptus and menthol to develop a relieving tingling sensation on the skin.
These botanicals not only channel the amazing healing properties of a variety of herbs, but make for many delightfully scented products. Will all naturally derived herbal ingredients, it’s hard to find a product that doesn’t smell amazing.
