Anyone else feel like it seems like the past year has been all about CBD-based products. Derived from the cannabis plant, this essential oil has been on everyone’s lips, pillow cases and skincare regimes. Among the converted, there are skeptics, which is why it can be difficult to navigate your way through the array of products available on the market. But, with a new decade comes a new mindset. January is all about reflecting on what you want to achieve for the year ahead. Think of it as a ‘mind cleanse’.
Here at Push, we’re all about trying new products and staying ahead of the curve. CBD has been a big part of our office research and personal lives in 2019. As some of you may know, we hosted a CBD focus group during last year’s Christmas #PushCONNECT event in the showroom. We found that quite often the same questions would come up from those in unfamiliar territory: What does it do, is it safe, how much should I take, is it legal …? We know it can be a little intimidating talking about CBD, but we’ve rounded up some of our favourite CBD-based products and talked you through the benefits and usage of each to help clear your mind.
