We’ve all been there. You’re on a long flight, it’s been delayed twice, and you’re in the dreaded middle seat.

Or you’ve got hours to drive through snow and ice, and the kids started asking Are we there yet? about ten minutes after you got on the road.

Seasonal travel is a recipe for headaches, stiff muscles, and mood swings. But CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties are our secret weapons against aches, pains, and fatigue.

Our favorite way to wind down after a long trip is to massage a CBD balm into aching muscles and joints.
