Anybody thinking that CBD is in just about every product imaginable at the moment would be hard to convince otherwise. The industry has turned into a vastness of different products from CBD and lavender bath bombs to CBD arousal oil to help regain that spark in the bedroom. Advice from the Centre for Medical Cannabis (CMC) towards the government has been to increase regulation to help the credibility of the CBD industry.
The idea is that increased regulation will slowly weed out the companies who are in the business just to make quick and easy money and subsequently strengthen the companies who have the consumer in mind. Those companies who ensure their products are what they say they are will stay on trading and the industry will only grow stronger in the long run.
Until regulation increases, it is going to be confusing for consumers to trust that products are indeed what they say they are. Fortunately, we have been able to get our hands on a few such products to test for daily use. So what will aid recovery for those who regularly push themselves to the limits through intense exercise? We rank them accordingly.
