This round-up was initially inspired by the back-to-school transition happening across the country. Be it virtual, in-person, or a hybrid of both, we can all agree the circumstances are anxiety inducing. And we would be remiss if we did not acknowledge how that anxious energy has been compounded with a heaviness in the past week. 

Our friends, the women of The Fold, and, we assume, so many of us are struggling, to put it bluntly. Smoke from the wild fires have engulfed our hometown, people are losing lives, homes and land. The back-to-school transition and general state of the nation and world has created a collective state that is unprecedented in our lifetime. 

Please know we are not recommending CBD products as a miracle cure or the end-all-be-all for your wellness routine, but for us, they have provided a daily dose of calm. Be it in the lotion to soothe tense muscles, a quick tincture dose in the morning or a bubbly beverage after a long day. The brands highlighted are our go-tos in time of stress. But, if we figure out a the sliver bullet for the apocalypse, we will be sure to report back here with the results!

"I will say at the intersection of being a woman and black, the amount of expectation and exceptionalism—we should not be burning ourselves out. Folks expect that, but we can reject that—we can say no and take care of ourselves better. I am still working on this, in a collective in activism, you don’t have to hold everything. We have been trying to build that in the campaign."
