Here’s a number you rarely see..a recommended dosage. Did she actually say recommended?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop alumni have launched a CBD beauty site for women — and doctors say it can help with period pain.
A pair of Gwyneth Paltrow proteges who worked at her lifestyle empire Goop have built their own version of the site devoted to all things CBD.
Ashley Lewis, 35, who oversaw the company’s wellness products, and Meredith Schroeder, 34, a former buyer at Goop, this week launched Fleur Marché (French for “flower market”), a retail site geared toward women and loaded with skincare products, menstrual pain relief oils, tinctures, edibles and lotions. The products contain CBD (Cannabidiol), made from a non-intoxicating compound found in hemp, a variety of the cannabis plant said to alleviate chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation and insomnia, among other conditions. (CBD, unlike the THC in cannabis, doesn’t get you high.)
Schroeder says they designed the site with luxury and self-care in mind. “I felt like there was a lack of sophistication in the cannabis space,” she told Moneyish.
With the CBD market slated to reach nearly $2 billion by 2022, according to New Frontier Data, the buzzy ingredient continues to grow increasingly ubiquitous as it appears in cocktails, at coffee shops and restaurants, in spa treatments, and even on room-service menus.
President Trump last month signed the $867 billion farm bill, which allows states to legally produce the hemp plant, from which CBD can be extracted. But despite hemp legalization, the FDA still largely considers CBD products illegal to add to food or health products without approval from the federal agency, since products have not been clinically proven to be safe or effective.
Weeding out the junk from the good stuff is where Lewis and Schroeder came in. They wanted to tap in to the canna-curious female consumer, giving her a classier CBD experience while educating her on the products and their potential uses.
“When you reposition CBD to women as part of self-care, and something that would help with anxiety, sleep and PMS as opposed to something that is just for recreational use, you can garner a whole bunch of different consumers,” Lewis said.
Fleur Marché categorizes products based on intended use, like pain relief or PMS. Doctors approve, but caution they can have side effects if a person is taking other medications.
“While the benefit of CBD for menstrual cramps has not been clinically proven, CBD has an anti-inflammatory property, so it makes perfect sense to help with menstrual pain in that it will help with inflammation,” Diana Martins-Welch, an attending physician in palliative medicine at Northwell Health, told Moneyish.
The “cannabis apothecary,” as the website calls it, contains products ranging in price from a $9 CBD hydrating lip balm to the $110 PM Formula, a tincture that claims to help with sleep and pain management. In true Goop fashion, Lewis and Schroeder say they tried all of the products themselves before putting them on the site. Product labels include ingredients, CBD content, serving size and instructions on use or consumption.
