The number of CBD products available has grown exponentially in the past couple of years. We’re already seeing everything from CBD bath bombs to CBD pet products hitting the market. Just like any item that’s enjoying its moment in the sun, CBD oil is finding its way into some really unique items. Most of these products are already on the market, but you may not have heard about them yet. Others may only be available sometime in the future. Here are some innovative CBD products you can expect to see more of in the coming months.
CBD Breath Mints
Whether it’s having it or smelling it, nobody is a fan of stinky breath. That’s why the top five leading brands in the breath freshener industry rake in over $817 million in sales annually. It’s only a matter of time before these top brands start releasing CBD products.
CBD breath mints would work similarly to CBD tinctures, plus have the added advantage of freshening your breath! This is one innovative CBD product that already exists, so you can try CBD breath mints for yourself.
Essential Oils in CBD Breath Mints
If a company decides to make breath mint CBD products, they might want to consider using natural essential oils like spearmint or peppermint in their formula.
These essential oils contain a litany of terpenes. Much like cannabinoids found in broad spectrum hemp extract, terpenes together have an entourage effect. Including essential oils and CBD into your breath care can help keep your mouth fresh all day long!
CBD for Birds
Squawk! Polly want a tincture! Over 20 million American households have adopted a bird as a member of their family. With the steady rise of CBD pet treats for dogs, CBD oil for cats and CBD pellets for horses, formulating CBD products for birds is a no-brainer!
Anyone who has a pet in their life naturally wants to give them the best care possible. After all, they are the companions who love you through thick and thin, even when they squawk back. Soon your birds will be able to receive the same support you do from CBD products.
The beauty industry is a $532 billion market. It’s only a matter of time before more cosmetic companies market CBD products in their makeup lines. We think this would be a great idea!
There are already CBD skincare products out there. Our largest organ, the skin, has its own endocannabinoid system. Cannabinoids in CBD topicals penetrate the pores to reach our cannabinoid receptors.
Now, you may be thinking, “Why bother with putting CBD in makeup?”
Foundations that hide blemishes may also dry out our natural glow. Artificial colors in eyeshadow and blush may cause an adverse skin reaction. CBD, on the other hand, is a simple product that can support your skin’s health whenever you need it.
CBD restaurants could definitely be a thing of the future. CBD edibles are already a popular item among hemp users. This idea is just taking it to the next level. After all, who wouldn’t want a five-star meal that also helps support a healthy lifestyle?
There are stringent laws surrounding cannabis-themed events, making them hard to pull off, but the groundswell is already bubbling. People are interested in cannabis cuisine. Perhaps a non-psychoactive option like CBD can help bridge the gap.
While hemp and marijuana are completely different, they do come from the same genus. Anyone who has eaten cannabis edibles knows that both THC and CBD products sometimes have a plant-like taste. Experienced cannabis chefs, though, can find the perfect blend of herbs, food and flavor to concoct some delicious CBD dishes.
This CBD product may seem far-fetched, but it’s already happening. CBD tampons are slowly growing in popularity, and they may be the next big thing in feminine hygiene.
Most of these brands are also ditching plastic. This move further strengthens the bond between sustainability and hemp.
There are two growing industries in health and wellness circles. Analysts project the CBD industry will hit $23 billion by 2025. In the same year, other analysts believe that probiotics will top $77 billion.
What makes this combination of products so exciting is that they both have a unique interaction with the body. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that regulate your gut health. Due to their presence in your microbiome, probiotic bacteria can help maintain balance within the system.
Many people use CBD products to promote homeostasis, or balance, throughout the body. These two working in conjunction could provide even more benefits.
The Microbiome and Endocannabinoid System
Live probiotic bacteria in our gut keep harmful bacteria at bay. If pathogenic microbes take over the system, they cause an adverse reaction in receptors along the vagus nerve. Depending on the bacteria, these reactions can cause an array of unpleasant results.
For probiotic CBD products to work efficiently, producers must implement nanoemulsion technology. This breakthrough is what makes Joy Organics CBD softgels so potent. We use state-of-the-art equipment to make some of the smallest CBD particles on the market.
Nanoemulsion is ideal for maximum absorption. The smaller the particles are, the more easily the body can absorb them. The same can be said for probiotics. Probiotic supplements can have trouble colonizing the colon. These blends require smaller particles for a better chance of survival in the stomach.
Kombucha is a product of fermented leaves. This gut-healthy drink is made with live yeasts (known as a SCOBY) and tea leaves.
When tea leaves are fermented in water, the lack of oxygen creates pressure on the plant. This pressure causes the leaves to break open and sweat. In some ways, this process is similar to the extraction of CBD oil.
The “sweat” is actually natural sugar from the leaves. As the leaves secrete these carbohydrates, the live SCOBY in the brew will feast on the sugars. The yeast will release probiotic bacteria into the tea water. Now, you have kombucha!
We can already envision companies infusing CBD into their brew like they currently do with water and coffee. One way to accomplish this is by using flavored CBD tinctures.
Many kombucha companies use essential oils, peels, barks and leaves to flavor their beverages. Using a naturally flavored CBD tincture can add a burst of flavor to this sparkling drink.
In the future, you may see food-grade hemp become a reality. From there, hemp flowers might be used for kombucha in lieu of tea leaves. The future of CBD products is bright and ever-growing. We can’t wait to see what innovative CBD products come out next!
