‘Bon Appétit’ Is Freaking Out Over These CBD Strips

You know cannabis has gone completely mainstream when Bon Appétit is writing about CBD strips. Yes, it’s true, pretty much everyone is buzzing about cannabis’ non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD, but to get into one of Condé Nast’s behemoth glossies is a feat.

The reporter Aliza Abarbanel is clearly already a CBD fan, as she admitted to keeping CBD tinctures at her desk to abate stress throughout the day. However, she also pointed out that other high-anxiety moments, like waiting on a crowded subway or sitting in traffic, aren’t exactly conducive to fumbling with a dropper. Hence these little, easy to carry, individually wrapped sublingual strips.

Kin Slips have 10mg of CBD and 1mg of THC in every strip. Though there’s little to no chance that the 1mg of THC will get you high, there is a very important factor to cannabis called the entourage effect, where the combination of cannabinoids, even in low, low doses, create a much more effective product.


Abarbanel reported, “I find that it helps ease some of the sensations of anxiety—tight chest, tense back, clenched stomach—that I tend to feel in high stress situations. A sense of calm sets in behind my eyes, and the sharp, anxious edges of my mind soften.”

It’s high praise for the CBD strips and she also says that she loves the flavor, which is predominately mango with some tumeric added for an “earthy” kind of flavor. Abarbanel hasn’t stopped using her droppers, though.

CBD is most effective when used daily, so the Bon Appétit writer still relies on the tinctures throughout the day. The tincture is a whole flower California offering of CBD and was also featured on the pages of the same magazine in an article by Martine Thompson titled “This CBD Tincture Makes Me Super Productive… In A Chill Way.”


Of course the tincture is also infused with all natural lemon and mint flavors, making it delicious as well. Bon Appétit is certainly on the cutting edge when it comes to CBD, and that’s a great thing for newstands and browsers everywhere.
