Here they come: The next can't-live-without, craze-worthy, mind-and-body obsessed products. At this summer's FounderMade Discovery Show in New York City — a conference dedicated to showcasing the latest forward-thinking brands disrupting the wellness, beauty, and health industry — what I discovered (other than CBD-laced everything for eating, drinking, and slathering on) is that everyday essentials are becoming smarter — to make our daily hustles easier, enhance our Zen, and increase our awareness about what we put in our bodies. Here's a baker's dozen of new brands and products that impressed.

Modern Picnic Chic Lunch Boxes

We all know bringing your lunch to work is a cheaper, healthier, and faster solution than take-out. Now it can even be chic with a 100-percent vegan leather and insulated lunchbox, which can double in disguise as a purse for after-work drinks. No shame in storing extra snacks to skip the greasy happy hour menu. ($49 and $149)

Kin Euphorics Booze-Free Cocktails

Speaking of happy hour, self-care doesn't have to stop at sunset if you're drinking sober-curious adaptogenic drinks made from high-quality ingredients and minerals that have a reverse-hangover effect. The company also make a booze-free liquor that can be mixed with seltzer for a sort of Aperol spritz. (From $27)

Eaton Hemp Snack Squares

First it was quinoa, then chia seeds. What's next? Hemp. In the form of super snack-able squares or as toasted super seeds filled with fiber, omega nutrients, and protein. Great to eat alone or add as granola to a yogurt bowl, super seeds come in flavors like Himalayan pink salt, ancho chili BBQ, and maple cinnamon, while the squares come in cashew coconut mango and walnut apple cinnamon. ($20)

Squeak Household Cleaning Products

Just as important as what you put in you is what surrounds you. Make yours a clean home and office with a series of all-natural cleaning products. The collection includes all-purpose and glass sprays, floor cleaners, scrubs, and yoga mat cleaners, in scents like lemon, rosemary, and cedarwood; citrus eucalyptus; and lemongrass and geranium. Refills and subscription programs make this an even more eco- and budget-friendly option. (From $10)

LivOn Labs Vitamin C Packets

I never travel without these and swear by them for not getting sick on planes. Squeeze the highly-absorbable 1000mg dose of vitamin C to a small glass of water. ($33)

And Now for the CBDs...

Dr. Kerklaan Therapeutics

Remember how Trident got dentists to help it sell gum? No doubt adding a physician's name to the label — along with medical-looking packaging and a giant red-and-white cross logo — will help this collection of CBD topical creams, sticks, and sprays feel totally legit. Four formulations are designed to target relief (from discomfort, tension, stiffness), sleep (reduce anxiety, stress, tension), PMS, and skin woes (irritations, burns, scratches). (From $40)

Of all the CBD drops and salves, this comes very highly recommended as a full-spectrum, 100-percent organic whole-plant CBD, with different strengths and doses for your perfect chill level. ($55 and up)

Mr Moxey's CBD Mints

The most discrete CBD option looks like an Altoids mint box with different flavors for different moods (balancing, energizing, relaxing). THC is a boosted ingredient, so only some states allow it. ($40)
