It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
At least that what’s the song says right?
Thanksgiving can remind of us the “F” word.
Filled with reasons to stuff yourself silly with carbs.
And a time you feel obligated to spend more time with your family than should probably be allowed.
But before you knock back that extra drink or pop a Xanax, the holidays are the perfect time to give CBD a try.
1. Keeping Calm
We all know what it’s like to wander in the grocery store the week of Thanksgiving or deal with the madness of holiday traveling. Ideally, this should be a joyous time of the year, not stressful.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has become popular for its calming properties when life starts to get a little too crazy. Our organic CBD tincture oils are perfect for daytime use when you need a mental escape, while our CBD gummies have the perfect amount of organic CBD and a proprietary blend to help you dream of pumpkin pie and apple cider.
2. Reducing Anxiety
Does the thought of spending a whole weekend with your extended family get your mind racing or are you a fearful flyer? Rebalance back into your zen zone with CBD. CBD interacts with receptors in your endocannabinoid system (ECS) which may help regulate your major body’s systems to keep them in harmony. Your ECS affects your central and peripheral nervous systems, which regulate a multitude of processes in the body.
3. Suppressing Inflammation and Pain
While stress and anxiety are common reasons a younger population uses CBD, older adults are turning to the cannabinoid to help with aches and pains.
The U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health posted a journal entry by Biochem Pharmacol stating “CBD has also been shown to suppress collagen-induced arthritis and carrageenan-induced inflammation.”
While it’s not approved by the FDA, many of CBD users tout its effectiveness for these very reasons.
Whatever your reason for buying CBD, the most important thing to remember is to do your research on the company you’re purchasing from. With no FDA regulation or oversight, it’s common to buy CBD that doesn’t match the exact strength listed or that contains unwanted chemicals. Always look for third-party lab results, and we recommend buying organic CBD as organic standards are government regulated.
