Before sharing CBD with your family, you might also encounter some family members that stigmatize anything having to do with cannabis, particularly parents or grandparents that lived through the “Reefer Madness” era. While cannabis and hemp products are becoming more mainstream these days, it can still be difficult to approach the subject if someone in your family has strong opposing feelings.

Honey & Oat CBD Facial Mask
I love using honey for facial masks, particularly mixed with CBD. It provides antioxidants to combat the signs of aging, and it acts as a complexion enhancer that makes the skin glow. Oat powder is also a fantastic ingredient to use in facial masks because it contains saponins, which are natural cleansers that help control excess oil in the skin and remove pesky dirt that clogs pores. With the addition of soothing chamomile and rose oils, plus uplifting lemon oil, this mask will leave your skin radiant!
