Dirty Lemon CBD

As recently as a year ago, if you asked a stranger in your spin class what “CBD” was, chances are, they would have had no idea what you were talking about. Now, it seems like it’s all anyone in the wellness world wants to discuss: Which tincture have you been putting under your tongue to de-stress?
