Smell (Irrelevant to effects)
We tested the lemon cheesecake flavor of the Canna Comforts CBD Lip Balm, which smells delicious in the tube and on your lips: tart lemon is mellowed by notes of vanilla and cream, softening the sourness of the lemon without making the finished product artificially cheesecake-y. If lemon isn’t your thing, there are plenty of other flavors to choose from—we liked the pumpkin cheesecake in particular; it’s delightfully spicy with just the right amount of sweetness.
Taste (Irrelevant to effects)
The taste is predominantly lemon, with softer notes of vanilla and cream that smooth the overall flavor profile. There isn’t a lot of sweetness, which we liked — this allowed the flavor to shine through without being cloying.
The lip balm is a bit waxy in texture at first, but warms up quickly on the lips. It absorbs quickly into the skin and feels soft, smooth, and slightly tingly on the lips—not unpleasantly so, but in a refreshing sort of way. The texture isn’t grainy or overly oily, making it the perfect balm for everyday use: this CBD lip balm has definitely found a place in our purses and pockets.
Effects (Onset, Duration, Intensity)
The Canna Comforts CBD Lip Balm is intensely hydrating, with a subtle tingling sensation that we enjoyed. It lasts for about an hour, but your mileage may vary depending on what you’re doing (eating, drinking, smoking, etc.). This stuff made short work of chapped lips and helped shield our skin against winter weather, soothing and preventing inflammation.
Best used for
This lip balm won’t give you a huge dose of CBD, but it is ideal for keeping your lips hydrated and protected from the elements. If you’re prone to chapped lips, try some to help soothe the inflammation in your skin while conditioning your skin.
