We Tried It: Brown Girl Jane’s CBD Products For Better Mental Health

“Because every woman should experience six things in life: love, great orgasms, God, happiness, luxury, and rest.”

Five months into 2022 and already it feels like it has been a year. New levels come with new devils (new stresses) and though we are proud of our accomplishments in the year so far, as a team, to say we aren’t in need of a vacay is an understatement. A part of recovery from burnout includes being intentional about how we approach our self-care practices. With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, the xoNecole team decided to put better mental health into practice. And what better way to prioritize our mental health and manage our stress levels than through the use of CBD products?

The first Black woman-owned CBD brand that came to mind was Brown Girl Jane. CBD is the non-psychoactive ‘cousin’ of THC known for its more medicinal properties. When infused in products like oils, water, and gummies, CBD is used to provide relief to those experiencing health conditions like anxiety, stress, inflammation, depression, migraines, and even chronic pain. With product offerings like Balance Wellness Drops, CBD Gelées, and Rest Wellness Drops, Brown Girl Jane is taking up space as beauty and wellness innovators tapping into the power of CBD.

BGJ has a wide variety of products, both edible and topical, and we at xoNecole were all very excited to try them all. Here’s what each team member had to say about their experience with Brown Girl Jane’s CBD products:

Brown Girl Jane’s Aromatic Body Oil

“First of all, it’s the aesthetics for me. I love the cute packaging and the gold text on this bottle is giving luxury! Roses to all responsible. I have very dry skin so I usually use oil over lotion on areas of my body like my heels, toes, elbows, and fingers. So, I was looking forward to trying this one out.

“There was little to no scent at all which kind of disappointed me as someone who enjoys smelling things but I can see how this is would be a plus for someone who is sensitive to strong fragrances. That definitely doesn’t take away from its quality. It left me glistening, as it should, and if there was a travel-sized version I would carry it everywhere I go. Hint. hint.”

Brown Girl Jane’s CBD Gelées – Anti-Stress

“I’ve always been very interested in trying these after seeing so many people say that CBD gummies really helped with their anxiety. Living with an anxiety disorder and knowing there’s something that can possibly help was comforting. I tried the strawberry rose flavor and I loved how tasty it was at the beginning, masking the taste of the plant initially.

“It definitely made me feel calm and eventually sleepy. I wasn’t very stressed or anxious at the times I took them so I’m curious to see how clutch they will be mid- or post-anxiety attack.”

Brown Girl Jane’s Heal Body Butter

“So since becoming a mom I’m always looking for different products to add into my evening routine to really help me wind down for the night and get the best sleep possible. It’s sometimes so challenging for me to turn my mind off and allow my body to relax and release the day. The past three days, I have added some Brown Girl Jane products into my evening routine and they’ve been a complete game-changer.

“I’ve been using the Brown Girl Jane Heal Body Butter. I have been putting it on my lower back, my neck, shoulders, and my feet, and it has been so relaxing. I honestly almost feel my body relaxing and the effects of the CBD on my sore muscles and my tense areas instantly. I’m obsessed and I will continue to add this as a staple in my evening routine, for sure.”

Brown Girl Jane’s Glow Luminous Facial Serum

“I’ve also added the Brown Girl Jane Glow Facial Serum into my evening skin care routine and I loved it as well. I think I probably used a little too much the first time but the second night that I tried it I used a little bit less and it still felt so good. The combination of both of these products into my evening routine has really allowed me to relax and just take a deep breath and ease into my night.

“I’ve been using both of these products right before reading my book and laying in my bed and they’ve been just really relaxing. I love them both. If you’re looking for some nice CBD products to add to your evening routine, I highly suggest the Brown Girl Jane products. They’ve been a game-changer for me.”

Brown Girl Jane’s Rest Wellness Drops

Brown Girl Jane

“If you’re anything like me, the word ‘rest’ is typically one of those mythical moments you hear about but rarely achieve or witness every single day. There’s life, there’s stress and there’s the Big ‘A’ wearing its scarlet letter loud and proud: anxiety. Between those three culprits, finding organic and consistent rest for me, as of late, has been like a modern game of musical chairs. I’ve tried it all…melatonin, sleep aids and even working out before bed. I might’ve landed on one for a while, but none of it gave me the rest I was looking for nor the aftermath of a truly great night’s sleep (you know the rest I’m talking about – when you wake up refreshed, energized, and barely know what day it is).

“For me, an ally and advocate of cannabis, I was hella intrigued to discover if Brown Girl Jane’s Rest Wellness Drops would end up a nighttime staple or just next to the staples in the bottom of my nightstand drawer. Before I hopped in the shower I took one dropper-full and placed it under my tongue; I let it sit there for 30 seconds before swallowing and proceeding with my normal nighttime routine. Shower, facial, lotion, brush my teeth, and spray my melatonin spray on my pillowcase. By the time I’d crawled into bed, I felt relaxed, at ease, and at peace. My mind wasn’t racing as it normally does before bed, it was rather in a state of subtle euphoria.

“Just to make sure I wasn’t experiencing a fluke, I continued trying the drops for a week and each time, I found myself reaching for the drops as part of my nighttime wellness routine. The beautiful part? I don’t feel addicted to them, I feel aligned with them. I’m so impressed with the experience that I’ve texted just about every friend of mine and raved about finally witnessing the mythical ‘rest’ moment firsthand. ‘Girl, you won’t believe the sleep I had last night.’ Because every woman should experience six things in life: love, great orgasms, God, happiness, luxury, and rest…lots of rest.”

Halle Berry’s Go-to CBD Brand Is Launching a New Fragrance Line

In addition to her extensive fashion, lifestyle, and beauty coverage for InStyle, Brandi has worked as a writer and editor for E! Online, a fashion and lifestyle writer for Hello! US, an editor/on-camera host for AOL, contributing writer and red carpet correspondent for Variety and Cosmopolitan, and has also served as the Hollywood correspondent for Australia’s 9News’ TheFIX. Her editorial features can also be found on Vitruvi, MTV News, Madame Noire, Hello Beautiful and more covering fashion, beauty, lifestyle, travel, and entertainment news. Her articles have been syndicated by the likes of Health, Marie Claire, Essence, Shape, Yahoo!, People, and more.

Surrounded by a vivid display of breathtaking floral arrangements inside of Atlanta’s dreamy flower-covered REVISED Garden Room restaurant, Brown Girl Jane founders Malaika Jones, Tai Beauchamp, and Nia Jones wrapped up the final day of the brand’s inspirational Health and Wellness Summit with an exciting announcement.

As waiters swapped trays of champagne for sleek mini bottles and passed them around the room, the trio revealed they had taken a dive into the fragrance world and would soon be launching Brown Girl Jane’s first set of perfumes.

Attendees, including the brand’s Shea Moisture grant recipients and finalists, like Look Good Live Well Founder Ariane Turner, immediately opened and sprayed the bottles. “It smells so good,” she said after spraying the LaMu scent on her arm.

And there’s a big reason Brown Girl Jane’s new fragrance collection, which launches Nov. 18, is so enticing: they were developed using 25 years of scent science and neuroscience techniques in partnership with renowned fragrance house Firmenich.

The collection “uncovers the link between emotions, ingredients, and colors using proprietary, claimable, and science-based technology such as brain frequencies,” the brand shared in a statement. In other words, the all-natural fragrances not only smell really good, but the embedded innovative technology causes sensory reactions when you wear them.

As a bonus, they’re launching just in time for the holidays, and make for great stocking stuffers and gifts.

“Scent is something that is so close to us, especially as women of color,” Malaika tells InStyle on a Zoom call. “It means so much, like the smell of walking into your mother’s house or the smell of your best friend, or, the smell of your latest trip. all of these sorts of things really evoke such strong memories. That was the foundation upon which we built the fragrance collection, and it’s an even larger love note to women of color in general, from the cities they’re named after to the sort of ease that each scent evokes,” she continues.

“That’s why we called it the Wanderlust collection,” Beachamp adds. “It allows us to feel transported as we inhale, and then our moods reflect that.”

The fragrance names were strategically chosen to reflect “where black women live” around the world, Beauchamp shares, adding that they were inspired by the culture in those areas, which are reflected in the scents.

The process from inception to finished product took over a year, Jones says. And they wanted to make sure that their signature wellness style was infused into the collection. “We were super excited about approaching product development and thinking about all of the ways to infuse wellness into really disruptive, innovative ways,” Malaika says.

LaMu is infused with coastal sage, salty plumeria, and coconut water — designed to uplift. Bahia contains water lotus, tuberose, and vanilla to relax and ease, and Casablanca comes complete with cardamom, soft suede, and glowing amber to give off soothing vibes of love and sensuality.

Brown Girl Jane’s summit, which Halle Berry hosted last year, is designed to uplift, inspire, and motivate women of color as well via days of health and wellness programming, with plenty of girl boss advice in the mix as well.

Former Destiny’s Child singer Michelle Williams hosted one of the virtual panels about mental health, and a select group of guests were treated to a luxe Cantu spa day at the St. Regis Hotel in addition to the lavish brunch. It was Black girl magic personified, and there was another surprise announcement to come.

At the end of the brunch, the founders also announced that they would be launching a 501 3c non-profit organization specifically tailored to help fund and support black-owned beauty brands. This would further the over $405,000 they’ve already given to black-owned brands in partnership with Shea Moisture and Vaseline.

“When we launched Brown Girl Jane, we always knew that we wanted to lead with our mission and that has always meant including and uplifting other women of color,” Nia details. “We wanted that to be equally as important as our product line.”

Each fragrance is priced at $62 and can be purchased on browngirljane.com.

These Are The New Brown Girl Jane Skincare Products The Founders Of The CBD Wellness Brand Swear By

The brand that helps “Badass women manage full lives naturally” recently expanded into the beauty space.

Just this past January we took an in-depth look at plant-based wellness company Brown Girl Jane. Since that time, the brand has expanded into the beauty space with the launch of two new products, and we got the founders to give us the inside scoop on their favs because there’s nothing like knowing which products the actual creators swear by.

Having been expanding my knowledge of various vitamins and acids via my skincare column, I admitted to the ladies behind the brand that my limited familiarity with natural ingredients — CBD (Cannabidiol) in particular — has left me unsure about using products formulated with the element. It turns out, that’s not all that uncommon.

“We recognize with the criminalization of the cannabis plant in our community that there’s a lack of education and that’s why we’re here,” Co-Founder and Chief Brand Officer Tai Beauchamp told me. “We want to be a part of not only providing you with products that support your overall wholeness and wellness but also help educate you.”

Part of that education is understanding “We have a certain amount of CBD naturally in our blood and in our body and it helps to regulate our sense of balance, anxiety, energy, and serotonin and that’s happening naturally in our body,” Tai explained. “So with the cannabis plant, you can extract parts of it to support what is naturally happening in your body. This is an opportunity to support what is already happening with your immune system.”

And for the record, there is no THC in any of Brown Girl Jane’s products which means “You will not get high,” Tai added. “There is no high associated with CBD, that’s another part of the plant that’s extracted, THC, and there is no THC in any of our products.”

With that background knowledge, I asked the ladies to dive into the details of entering the skincare realm and introducing GLOW, a serum formulated with 750mg of full Broad Spectrum hemp and Cannabis Sativa Seed oil, which the ladies love so much they sung the name when talking about it during our Google Hangout.

“Those together really do some amazing things for your skin. It’s really like a one, two punch,” Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Malaika Jones Kebede said of the two oils.

Calling CBD a “magic ingredient,” Tai added that Cannabidiol has more antioxidants than Vitamin C and D and is an anti-inflammatory. “It’s really one of these one-hit wonders of an ingredient. It can work on acne, it can work on psoriasis, and it can work on eczema.”

The other new addition to the Brown Girl Jane family of tinctures is HEAL, a whipped CBD body butter. “Having a CBD body butter is really unique in the space and I know our sisters love body butter so as we thought about skincare and lotions we thought, we need a body butter. This is what’s helpful for us,” shared Mailaika who was introduced to CBD topically herself.

“I love it because, of course, it harnesses the power of CBD, and that’s amazing on its own, but we pair it with other botanicals that also work in tandem with it, from aloe to shea, to chamomile, calendula, and cocoa butter, and the marriage of all of those together really is healing and nourishing and hydrating along with the CBD. It’s one of our most loved additions.”

When it comes to calling it HEAL, well, that’s not just a name, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer Nia Jones explained. “I have two young sons and I get sore just from picking them up and chasing them so I love it as a mom for helping to heal some of those sore muscles which is great. A lot of my friends who have young kids who feel a little less comfortable doing something that you can ingest also feel a bit more at ease using something that they can apply on the skin.’

Because every woman has different preferences and needs when it comes to their beauty and wellness routines, I asked each of the Co-Founders of Brown Girl Jane to break down their favorite items in the collection. Here’s what they told me.

“I love them all but lately BALANCE is truly the one for me that resonates the most having two young boys and needing to find calm and ease at certain points in the day. So while I won’t say ‘my favorite,’ the one that is my go-to at least right now has been BALANCE.”

“I’m a GlOW Girl, but it’s between Glow and SLEEP because SLEEP is also my best friend. Running a startup has been super exciting and all of the things, but it is hard to turn off at the end of the night. So you can imagine if you were really exhausted, to just go right to sleep that would help.

“But GLOW is amazing. I don’t mind the hempy taste so I just love the fact that I can have it in my purse at all times and, whether I need a little moisture on my face or I can drop it on my tongue, I can use it in a couple of ways. Also, I’ve had some inflammation in my skin and a little redness around my nose and I’ve just been super amazed — of course, this is our collection — but it’s one of those things where week over week it really has transformed my skin. I don’t have any of the redness that I used to have. I don’t even know if I have pores anymore. So those are my two best friends.”

“GLOW, BALANCE, and SLEEP I can’t do just one or two, that’s the Trifecta. With Glow, I use it for my braids with my scalp because I have a dryer, itchier scalp. It’s the only thing I use on my face. I use it for my cuticles so GLOW is my glow-to.”
