TRAVELLING LIGHT | How CBD can ease the journey and the jet lag
I’VE JUST TRAVELLED TO THE USA AND HERE’S HOW CBD HELPED WITH THE JOURNEY
I certainly didn’t have problems getting into the new sleep pattern. Although CBD doesn’t make me sleep longer, it certainly makes me sleep deeper, providing a better quality of sleep which is vital when adjusting to new time zones. 2 pumps of the 4% at bedtime worked for me
I’m not one for getting anxious before travel, but I was traveling to USA for the first time with sleep deprivation and tight flight-transfers, so it could have proved stressful. It didn’t. I started the morning with 2 sprays under the tongue of the 8%

Best for use in-flight – Topical 2 per cent CBD serum by The Tonic Tribe
I trialled Tonic’s Topical 2 per cent CBD serum on an eight-hour flight from London to New York. My skin usually becomes very red, dry and puffy on flights , no matter how much water I drink or how much hyaluronic acid I pump onto my face. This rich, oily serum was absorbed easily into the skin and immediately felt soothing. My face felt properly moisturised and I ended the flight looking marginally less ravage than usual. You need to get used to the ‘hemp-y’ smell, but it’s well worth the extra effort. And if my word isn’t enough, after just three days of using this serum, Stephen Manderson (better known as Professor Green) managed to banish all traces of eczema from around his eyes. Which proves that it’s potent stuff…
