Hot sauce is a quick and easy way to add some extra flavor to your favorite foods.

Tacos, pizza, fried chicken, eggs, rice, noodles... they're all candidates.

CBD hot sauce works much the same way. Except you also get the calming, pain-reducing effects of cannabidiol, which—hey, synergy. 

Here are five CBD hot sauces that will calm you down as things get heated.

Satan's Breath CBD Hot Sauce
Crafted with a blend of six fire roasted peppers, including serranos, habaneros and Carolina reapers, it's guaranteed to satisfy your craving for heat.

CaJohn's Burning Desire CBD Hot Sauce
Founded in Columbus, Ohio in 1996, CaJohn's makes a lot of hot sauces.

It's a little fruity, a little earthy, and works on damn near anything. / $9, Hot Sauce Mall
