Briefly.. what is CBD?
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is a highly popular natural remedy for many common ailments. CBD is the most commonly referred to compound of cannabis, however, there are over 100 chemical compounds. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.

What is the difference between the cream and roll-on?
We get asked this question at every event. Both products work equally well but are very different in application, scent, and texture.
We recommend our cream to clients looking to soothe hands, feet, necks, apply to temples for headache and love the soft absorbent creamy and light texture. There is barely a scent, so you can add your own essential oils-such as lavender.
The roll-on Freeze is highly useful for those on the go. We find that there is no target age for this product. Young and old both love the hands free application, the cooling freeze sensation and the crisp menthol scent, that dissipates quickly. This product is fantastic for athletes and those on the go.
