The Skinny on CBD Health and Beauty Products from CBD Living

CBD health and beauty products are all the buzz. And there are plenty of CBD pop-up shops and products on the market. But I got a chance to sample a trio of beauty products from CBD Living, a California company that ships worldwide to all countries where CBD is legal. CBD Living's lavender bath bomb, coconut lime soap, and daily lotion with a soothing lavender scent immediately helped to ease my aches and pains, and to sleep more soundly than I've slept in months.  




But what exactly is CBD and is it safe?  Here, CBD Living COO Sean McDonald gives us the skinny and explains what the CBD craze is all about.

Everything She Wants: Please explain what CBD is?  

Sean McDonald: CBD, or cannabidiol, is a molecule found in hemp and cannabis plants. THC is another cannabinoid that people are familiar with, because it is the molecule that gets you “high.” CBD is an entirely separate molecule and does not make you high. 

ESW: Is CBD safe and non-addictive? 

SM: Yes. CBD is non-addictive and non-toxic, meaning you cannot “overdose” on it. There are no known side effects of CBD. 

ESW: How do CBD Living beauty products differ from other CBD beauty products on the market?

SM: CBD Living is different from other CBD brands in a few ways. The first is that we use only 100% organic hemp grown on state-licensed hemp farms in Colorado. 

The second is our transparency. All products are triple-tested by independent third-party labs and the results are posted online. Since CBD is not regulated by the FDA, customers really have no idea what they are getting when they buy from other, less transparent CBD companies. 

ESW: Do you have to be in pain to use CBD Living beauty products? Or can they also be used for relaxation and daily use?

SM: Not at all! CBD is great for general stress relief. People find increased relaxation by using a CBD Living Bath Bomb, or by using CBD Living Sleep Aid Syrup when they are having trouble sleeping for non-pain related reasons. 

ESW: What are the benefits of CBD Living beauty products?

SM: The CBD is absorbed through the skin to help with relief right at the site. In addition, it helps to unwind and relax after a long day.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic? If you are looking for a probiotic to  take every day, try a multi-strain probiotic starting with 5-10 billion CFU,  and see how it works for you. CFU's, or  colony forming units  are used to measure probiotics potency. CFU’s can range from 1 billion up to 100 billion.  The best time to take a probiotic supplem

Soak Up the Last Weeks of Summer Sun At The Rockaway Hotel

Summer is winding down, but there's still time to soak up the sun -- while wearing sunscreen, chic shades and a protective hat or sun visor, of course. If you're in New York City, The Pool at The Rockaway Hotel + Spa  is a cool place to swim, lounge and discreetly people watch while swaying to beat of ambient music.  It's a vibe! Day passes are available for non-hotel guests Monday through Thursday (excluding private events, 10 am -7 pm).  Located in the heart of the Rockaway Beach community in Queens, New York, the Rockaway Hotel is just a few short blocks from the sand and surf. Besides the outdoor pool,  the  newly built 84,000 square foot hotel offers around 60 guest rooms, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a large event space. And it's a nice addition to the area.  When my husband and I visited the popular pool, we enjoyed yummy sips and bites poolside. Lounging chairs are first come, first serve so the early bird gets the spot of their choice. After chilling at t
