Everyone needs time to relax, but with busy mom schedules it can often be difficult to find that time. To help you manage daily stress and anxiety and unwind at the end of the day in a healthy way, Lindsey Hogan founded Relax Mom, a CBD gummy company made for mamas.
“At a high level, we’re hoping to reinvent self-care for all mamas by providing simple, daily additions to their self-care routines and reminding women that self-care is essential to being their baddest selves,” she says.
Part of what inspired Hogan to launch her company, other than finding a healthy way to unwind at the end of the day, is the notion that women are constantly told to relax.
“Point blank, it’s infuriating,” she says. “All women are out there accomplishing so much, asking for so little, and, at the end of the day, often putting their own needs last. Being told to relax is a slap in the face, which is where the name, Relax Mom, came from; we’re taking back the phrase and putting a positive connotation on it and actually providing a way to relax daily.”
The gummies from Relax Mom allow you to de-stress and take a deep breath when you need it the most, without feeling guilty.
The journey to launching her own CBD gummy company wasn’t something that Hogan wanted to do just for those around her, but it became part of her own self-care plan.
She’d heard about CBD helping children with seizures and then another benefit – CBD helps with the management of stress and anxiety.
“It’s something I’ve struggled with my whole life but, due to personal preference to eliminate prescriptions and stick with more natural methods, I never took anything for it,” she says. “Until I heard about the correlation between CBD and anxiety. I began taking CBD daily and couldn’t believe the difference. It was so subtle that I didn’t even truly understand how it was helping until I stopped taking it and realized without it how much quicker I was to feel that elephant on my chest in high-stress professional and personal situations.”
After she experienced the pros of CBD herself, Hogan decided that she needed to do something to introduce other women to these benefits.
“Experiencing first-hand what an incredible, simple addition this could be for so many people, especially women who accomplish so much and often focus little on self-care, I knew this was something I wanted to share with them and anyone else who needed it,” she adds.
Every jar of CBD gummies from Relax Mom features an assortment of 5 flavors – pineapple, apple, orange, strawberry, and grape. And the flavors are what have made the product stand out against competitors.
“We constantly get reviews and compliments on how delicious they are and how they’re more a daily treat because of the overall taste, size, texture and consistency compared to all other CBD gummies that are usually small, single-flavor, hemp aftertaste, soft texture and consistency,” she says.
CBD gummies also aren’t as available on the market as other CBD products, such as CBD oil. Plus, the gummies from Relax Mom are third-party tested, vegan, organic, all-natural, and created through a high-quality CBD extraction process to provide the highest-quality CBD and gummy.
Hogan says that she’s currently working on a monthly subscription plan to make adding CBD to your self-care routine more effortless. “We already know many mamas are looking forward to this,” she says.
