CBD is everywhere these days. It’s available in a variety of products and potencies, including capsules, tinctures, creams, and gummies. You can ingest it, rub it on your skin, or even add it to your coffee. If you aren’t familiar with CBD or haven’t used it before, figuring out which products to try for specific needs can be a bit confusing.
Everyone responds to CBD differently. It interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, which helps control bodily processes related to sleep, appetite, and mood. The endocannabinoid system is involved with creating a state of balance throughout the body, and it’s thought that CBD interacts with this system in ways that each individual needs it most. It’s best to start with the lowest dose recommended until you know how CBD will affect you personally.
CBD isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” product. The best product for you depends on certain factors, such as the results you’re looking for, how quickly you want the CBD to take effect, how long you want it to last, your body weight and metabolism, and how often you use CBD. Take a look at the recommendations below to see how you can use CBD in different situations for different results.

Ed. note: Please welcome Nathalie Bougenies to the pages of Above the Law. She will be writing about the legalities surrounding cannabis and hemp CBD. This post is the first in a series dedicated to the federal and state legality and regulation of hemp-derived cannabidiol, more commonly known as “hemp CBD.”
The enactment of the 2018 Agricultural Improvement Act (the “2018 Farm Bill”) and the legalization of hemp and hemp derivatives, including hemp CBD, in some states has led to a massive hemp CBD health craze in the United States. The highly coveted cannabinoid is currently infused into everything from bath bombs to dog treats, and even workout clothes (yes, workout clothes!). According to a 2019 survey conducted by Cowen, the sales of these products are expected to reach $16 billion by 2025.
Despite this strong consumer interest, the Food and Drug Administration consistently takes the position that the sale and marketing of these hemp CBD products is unlawful and that the use of hemp CBD is dangerous. That was until the newly appointed FDA Commissioner, Stephen Hahn, M.D., publicly announced on February 26 to a roomful of representatives from state Departments of Agriculture that the FDA’s current approach to hemp CBD is not sustainable:
“We’re not going to be able to say you can’t use these products. It’s a fool’s errand to even approach that[.] We have to be open to the fact that there might be some value to these products and certainly Americans think that’s the case.”
The FDA’s new stance on the regulation of the sale and marketing of hemp CBD products raises the question in the minds of many of whether the agency will cease its enforcement actions against hemp CBD companies, which to date have been limited to sending warning letters to those companies that make egregious, unfounded health claims about the therapeutic value of hemp CBD.
Although Commissioner Hahn’s statements are promising, they did not ultimately do away with the FDA’s current moral position on hemp CBD, which is one of extreme consumer caution. Indeed, in his February 26 speech, the FDA Commissioner reiterated the agency’s goal of providing consumers with sound information about the effects of these products so they can make educated decisions about their purchases.
But what exactly gets the FDA’s hackles up around Hemp CBD?
According to the FDA, hemp CBD foods and dietary supplements can neither be lawfully sold nor marketed. The FDA takes issue with these products because of the Drug Exclusion Rule. The Drug Exclusion Rule provides that an article that has been approved or investigated as a drug cannot be a dietary supplement or be added to food unless the article was marketed as a supplement or food before it was investigated. Hemp CBD has been approved as a drug ingredient in the treatment of epilepsy (i.e., Epidiolex) and the FDA does not believe that hemp CBD was marketed as a food or dietary supplement prior to that investigation. Nevertheless, the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) gives the FDA Commissioner the authority to override the Drug Exclusion Rule by issuing “a regulation, after notice and comment, finding that the article would be lawful under [the FDCA].” As the head of the FDA, Commissioner Hahn has the ability to regulate hemp CBD, so his recent statements certainly suggest he may eventually act on that conferred power.
Despite its position on food and dietary supplements, the FDA indicated that hemp CBD can be added to topicals, which fall under the FDCA definition of “cosmetics,” so long as these products (1) do not contain marijuana, (2) are not adulterated (i.e., unsafe) or misbranded or intended to be used as drugs, and (3) if no claims are made about these products regarding diseases or bodily structure/function on their packaging, labeling, or in their marketing materials. Not making health claims on a product label or other marketing materials will significantly reduce the risk of an FDA enforcement action because any claim made about the therapeutic value of hemp CBD will lead the FDA to conclude that the product is a “drug.” And because no hemp CBD products have been approved by the FDA for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease (other than Epidiolex), those products will be deemed unlawful by the FDA if such claims are made.
The FDA has yet to address the sale and use of hemp CBD smokables. This is likely due to the fact that the FDA has the authority to regulate the sale, manufacture, and marketing of tobacco products, but has repeatedly refused to extend its authority to products free of nicotine or tobacco. Accordingly, it seems unlikely that hemp CBD smokables devoid of tobacco would be considered “tobacco products.” Although the FDA is not likely to regulate most hemp CBD smokables like it does tobacco products, it could potentially regulate them as a drug under the FDCA if any health claims are made about the therapeutic value of the products.
Therefore, until the FDA adopts a formal legal path for the sale and marketing of hemp CBD products, industry players will need, at a minimum, to comply with those loose FDA guidelines and applicable state laws, which, as I will explain in the second portion of this series on hemp CBD, are all over the map.

Women-led CBD brand name TribeTokes is announcing a new partnership this week that will bring its skin care line, TriBeauty, to the CBD Appeal Corner at Joel Warren’s Hair salon Project situated on the 7th floor of Saks Fifth Avenue Flagship in NYC.
The brand name was co-founded in 2015 by Investor and Serial Entrepreneur Degelis “Dege” Tufts and Influencer and Supporter Kymberly “KymB” Byrnes. They debuted the TriBeauty line last year, which includes a number of different products including an eye cream, collagen improving serum, and Superfood Mask.
The mask, which retails for $60, is among the stars of the line. The 6-in-one formulation plumps, oxygenates, hydrates, brightens, calms, and protects skin. Beyond CBD it also consists of kale and spinach, as well as white clay.
I caught up with the founders to discuss why they decided to introduce the beauty line, and what users may anticipate from a CBD-infused appeal item.
What made you wish to launch TriBeauty?
DT: When we initially began TribeTokes, before CBD was as ubiquitous as it is today, there was a major misperception that cannabinoids in topicals were suggested to get you high, or that this was a technique for absorbing it into your bloodstream. CBD really has amazing advantages for your skin, because it is relaxing, soothing and anti-inflammatory. Inflammatory skin problems are THE most common issue in dermatology, but likewise in issues we come across in “everyday life”– such as puffy eyes, or acne flare. We wished to take our knowledge and passion of plant science to produce skin care collection that harnessed the power of CBD coupled with quality, natural components.
KB: As a marijuana customer, my eyes would get really dry from the smoke. I would rub them and they would burn from the products I was utilizing. I began looking for an eye cream that had cbd and an all-natural formula without dehydrating & severe chemicals … Back in 2016, that item didn’t exist on the marketplace. With the assistance of two fantastic females named Rose, I developed an all-natural CBD-infused eye cream, our very first signature product in the collection, which quickly ended up being a cult staple of our brand. TRIBEAUTY was born from Dege & I’s objective to make a whole line of tidy CBD beauty products that made sense, altering the understanding of the power of CBD in charm items beyond marketing gimmicks.
Why produce a CBD mask?
DT: CBD is powerfully nurturing to skin tones pestered by inflammation, puffiness and swelling, but to be clear we are not just slapping CBD into white clay! The active ingredients of this mask are extremely thoughtful with unrivaled attention to detail – kale and spinach extract (which have Vitamin K, Lutein, Folate and Vitamin A), Lavender, CoQ10, Aloe Vera, Citric Acid, Evening Primrose, Jojoba, Green White Tea, Olive, Rosemary and Wild Oranges. By providing skin premium natural components, skin tones perform better even days after usage.
KB: CBD combined with the natural components in our Superfood Mask is a marital relationship made in paradise! Including CBD helps reduce inflammation and inflammation. Masks are synonymous in skin care treatments, which can help remove excess oil, improve the appearance of your pores, nourish, and pull out impurities. The 6-in-1 Mask makes certain to please all skin types as it lightens up, soothes, secures, oxygenates, plumps and hydrates!
Exists a particular skin type or skin problem that the mask is most efficient for?
DT: Our mask has a vast array of advantages: collagen production, eliminating germs in your pores, reducing fine lines/wrinkles, decreasing acne scarring, decreasing redness, roughness and puffiness, gently exfoliating, and evening out skin tone. A lot of these things are occurring listed below the surface on a cellular level, but the most significant high level feedback from consumers is that their skin feels much MORE VIBRANT, PLUMPER and SOFTER instantly after utilizing the mask.
KB: Whether you are worried about acne or anti-aging, CBD is remarkable for all skin types. Given that swelling is the main cause of all skin conditions, CBD helps calm the complexion while carefully sparking detox within the layers of the skin, generating collagen production and lowering excess oil production.
For somebody that isn’t currently using CBD in their appeal routine, what are some of the benefits of using items like your eye cream and facemask? How will outcomes vary from utilizing a non-CBD product?
DT: Anyone with inflammation, puffiness, swelling, deflated, ultra dry or tricky combination skin, or acne should consider including formulas with CBD to their beauty regimen.
KB: CBD is a powerful anti-oxidant, anti-pollutant and anti-inflammatory. The CBD Eye Cream Rescue is available in helpful after late nights as our powerful infusion of high quality CBD is perfect for reducing puffiness quickly. The silky smooth penetration provides your eyes a glow as it brightens the skin. The mask is remarkable to stimulate the blood flow on the facial skin however with the CBD you will not fret about getting any inflammation or irritation. You might not see the distinction right now but like other items and supplements we understand it is securing our skin from free radicals and contamination and overtime, there is a visible difference in skins.
Is the hemp used in your appeal items the like what you use in your vape pens?
DT: We use 3 different kinds of hemp-derived CBD in our skin care items depending upon the product – CBD isolate, CBD distillate, and water-soluble CBD isolate. The complete spectrum CBD extract is the exact same as what we utilize in the vape pens. Some items, such as our upcoming CBD Cucumber Eye Gel and CBD Rose Goji toner, need water soluble CBD to blend properly. We develop each product depending on what makes good sense and will be the most efficient.
KB: Having a background in the hemp market, opposed to other brand names entering the CBD skin care space from the charm industry, we have our supply chain in location and source our CBD from our strong relationships with premium farms and processors. We’re not just throwing any old CBD into a serum or mask. We’re creating natural active ingredients that work in harmony to develop glowing skin tones.
Any current strategies to expand your CBD appeal line? If you were going to broaden, what other products would you potentially have an interest in contributing to the lineup?
DT: Definitely! In addition to our facemask, we just introduced 2 brand-new serums in the past quarter: TRIBEAUTY’s CBD Collagen Boosting Serum and TRIBEAUTY’s CBD Vitamin C Ferulic Acid Super Serum. Our brand name is constantly anticipating what is next. In addition to a couple of other launches in our TRIBEAUTY line, we are presently developing items designed particularly for men, and likewise sexual health. Stay tuned!
KB: As I turn 42 this year my skin care requirements have actually started to change and let me tell you anti-aging is the # 1 top priority.
On the heels of Sephora unveiling its new “CBD at Sephora” standards last month, Lord Jones — the first cannabis brand the beauty retailer embraced — has launched its official foray into the facial skincare category: Lord Jones Whole Plant Formula Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer.
As an early disrupter in both the luxury cannabis and CBD beauty spaces, Lord Jones has remained an industry leader for its forward-thinking approach to the emerging CBD skincare market, which is projected to be worth $959 million by 2024, according to a recent report from cannabis market intelligence and strategic consultancy firm Prohibition Partners.
Unveiled exclusively on its own e-commerce site on March 10, the product will roll out across select Lord Jones retail partners nationwide and in within its 21 Sephora endcaps in New York, California, Colorado, Illinois, and Massachusetts as well as on Sephora.com next month. Its latest launch joins its best-selling body care products: High CBD Body Lotion, Royal Oil, Tamara Mellon High CBD Formula Stiletto Cream, Heavy Duty Chill Balm, High CBD Body Oil, and High CBD Bath Salts. Lord Jones expanded to 282 Sephora stores at the start of the year.
“When we launched at Sephora two years ago, we were the only [CBD] brand in a national beauty retailer. At that time, CBD was not yet available at mainstream retail and could only be discovered at select indie boutiques or dispensaries,” said Lord Jones founder and CEO Robert Rosenheck. “Sephora was a visionary partner and joined us on our mission to normalize cannabis use in the wellness category. The passage of the Farm Bill in December 2018 opened a floodgate and now there are thousands of brands including traditional beauty brands entering the space, creating a maze for the consumer to navigate. For us, CBD isn’t a trend, it’s all we do.”
Started in 2017 by Rosenheck and his wife, Lord Jones chief brand officer and co-founder Cindy Capobianco, the company itself was acquired for $300 million last year by the Canadian cannabis corporation Cronos, allowing for increased spending for product innovation and retail expansion.
“One of the founding principles of Lord Jones was to introduce best-in-class skincare formulations with the finest ingredients for unmatched performance,” said Capobianco. “Entering the face category was a natural next step for us. Many of our customers have been using our multi-purpose Royal Oil as a face oil, but for our first dedicated Lord Jones face product, we wanted to break new ground.”
While most of Sephora’s in-house competitor CBD brands are best-known for facial serums like Saint Jane, Prima, and Flora + Bast, Lord Jones is taking on an entirely different and largely unknown problem and solution in skincare: the acid mantle. So what exactly is it?
“Most people don’t know what the acid mantle is. It’s a protective barrier produced by healthy skin that serves as a primary defense between our face and the world,” explained Capobianco. “Over-cleansing, over-exfoliation and harsh acids have become trendy, but throw the acid mantle out of balance making skin susceptible to irritation and future damage.”
Inside each 1.7-ounce glass jar, a thick, creamy formula is infused with 250 milligrams of full spectrum, hemp-derived CBD oil blended with a pH balanced formula featuring a five-ceramide complex (compounds similar to those naturally occurring in the skin), hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed oil and sustainably-sourced squalane (the natural skin hydrator our sebaceous glands make) that replenishes moisture for smooth, supple skin. A luxe, gold-plated spoon is also included to massage the moisturizer into the face. Lord Jones Whole Plant Formula Acid Mantle Repair CBD Moisturizer retails for $75.
“This is a formula that will change the way people think about skincare,” added Capobianco. “We wanted to take on the challenge of caring for an often overlooked part of your face.”
Lord Jones’ new moisturizer promises to rebalance and repair every skin type and it delivers. La Mer who?
