There is so much excitement surrounding the CBD craze. It can be taken in every conceivable method of deployment. I have been so curious and if money were no object I would have already tried every product there is. Unfortunately, money does matter and CBD products are pricey.
This was my first purchase. I was already familiar with The Alchemist Kitchen and their very high standards so when I saw they had a counter inside ABC Carpet and Home in the organic beauty section I knew it was a sign for me. I bought the most obvious, least mystifying – chocolate bar. Everything about this was attractive to me. Except maybe the price tag although small batch organic chocolate can get really expensive even without CBD. So, $14.00 later, I ate half the bar. Two servings per bar which brings the cost per dose to $7.00 which actually seems reasonable. And, yes, the desired calm and relaxed mood was had. Plus, this chocolate was delish!!! I went back and bought a couple more to give some friends who, like me, were wondering where to begin this CBD odyssey.
Here is the description on their website:
Plant Alchemy collaborated with Elements Truffles to bring you the highest quality dark chocolate infused with the highest quality CBD.
Our recipe contains 70% raw cacao and each bar is sprinkled with sea salt, for a decadent and a delicious treat inspired by Ayurvedic culinary healing and cooking traditions.
Each bar contains 60 mg of full-spectrum CBD hemp extract.
Ingredients: Organic Raw Cacao Butter (Peruvian Criollo), Raw Honey, Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Coconut Oil, Full-Spectrum CBD Hemp Extract, Sea Salt.
After that successful situation, I went back a few weeks later to dive deeper…
The name of this face cream already had me sold. Something in the arrangement of the words “plant alchemy, saffron, richly infused”… then I opened the disply jar and could see right away the wonderful texture. It’s just such a creamy and light formula. I bought a small size to give it a try and it is really a supremely smooth, nourishing, not to mention, calming product. I love this. And due to it’s light and soothing formula, you tend to smooth it on sparingly.
Here is what they say on the site:
Our Plant Alchemy Saffron Face Cream is blended with a variety of essential oils and then paired with our proprietary Plant Alchemy CBD oil concentrate. The result is a superbly rich face, neck, and hand cream that upon application immediately binds to receptors in the skin, which explains its soothing and anti-inflammatory effects.
The rare saffron oil is extremely rich in magnesium and other plant-based compounds, which harmonizes beautifully with the fatty acids contained in the CBD oil. Saffron is also rich in Vitamin A and C, essential for diminishing wrinkles and age spots. This elegant and inventive pairing of two sacred plants is intended to energize the skin and stimulate a luminous skin tone and complexion.
Each 1 oz jar contains 300 mg of full-spectrum organic CBD.
Ingredients: Sweet almond oil, olive oil, full spectrum organic hemp derived CBD, saffron, coconut oil, jojoba, aloe vera, rose water, sea salt, lanolin, essential oils of lavender, rosewood, palma rosa.
It is really a very interesting use of CBD which I am very glad I tried. If anyone has any suggestions please leave in comments!
