Allow us to be frank, because honestly, periods suck. The mood swings, the cramps, the inhumanity! But not this month! If you’ve ever had to take a day off work because of your period or pop Motrin like candy during Aunt Flow’s visit, you’ll love Not This Month.
“Although this CBD rub that is also a stick is intended for period pain, I use it all throughout the month. It’s great because you don’t have to get any of the CBD balm on your actual hands and you can slide it right onto your abdomen, lower back, or really anywhere that you have pain or discomfort. It smells great, feels great, and does help decrease my pain levels. Along with CBD, the stick also has rose, ginger, cramp bark, and chamomile. At almost $70, it isn’t cheap, but I got a stick in July and am still using the same stick now, in late October.” – Lara Parker, BuzzFeed
“During my period, I specifically use Good Jane’s Not This Month stick. I like it for a number of reasons that include but are not limited to: It’s easy to apply thanks to the stick style, it gives me relief, it feels thin, smells good, and the texture isn’t too sticky like some other CBD rubs and balms I’ve used. It also doesn’t stain my clothes or leave residue everywhere I go.
During particularly painful periods, opening a jar of balm and being able to apply it to my abdomen almost feels too much. It might sound unbelievable, but having this in stick form has honestly made my life during my period a little bit easier simply because it’s easier to apply to my abdomen when I’m writhing in pain.” -Lara Parker, BuzzFeed
