Why AK CBD?

As a pro travel blogger, I spend several months of the year on the road. It’s been 11 years since I started traveling full-time, and I’ve since visited 83 countries and all seven continents!

Traveling is exhilarating and fulfilling — but even for a pro, it can be exhausting and disorienting as well.

Any traveler has stories about nights spent in airports waiting for delayed flights; about arriving in a new place at dawn, horribly jet-lagged; about the unplanned surprises that can make a trip something you’ll be talking about for the rest of your life — for better or worse.

This is the downside of being on the road, and it’s real. Even after 11 years, travel stress still gets to me — and I still can’t figure out how to sleep on an overnight flight.

When COVID hit, I was in Mexico. Not only was I worried about COVID, my family, and the world, my income suddenly dropped by 90%, as nobody was planning to travel. I was having panic attacks and not sleeping.

Looking for relief, I tried CBD for the first time — and slept for nine hours straight. My worries weren’t over, but they had become much more manageable.

Since then, CBD has been an important tool in my travel kit. It helps me to stay calm in times of stress, to sleep through jet-lag, and to be my happy, engaged self, even on tough travel days.

That’s why I started my own line of CBD products. Created for the active traveler, these products are designed to discreetly and effectively help you keep calm and carry on, no matter what your travels throw at you. 

These days I keep a bottle of Slumber Tincture and my Adorable Portables handy when I travel. I also often carry my Soothe It Salve as well, and when I really feel the need for a bracing dose of CBD, I turn to my Tranquility Tincture.

There’s something for every traveler in my CBD line — give it a try and let me know what you think!
