5 Ways CBD Can Help Get You Through The Holidays

Holiday Joy!

Whether you’ve been focusing on making the best of this season in new ways or have officially declared 2020 a dumpster fire, CBD can help make this holiday season bright. Here are a few suggestions from our team to make the best of hemp’s healthiest products.

Restore Balance

Feeling off-balance and out of routine this year? CBD and the body’s endocannabinoid system are wired to help you return to balance and feel your best. The human body is naturally programmed to benefit from supplemental CBD. Here’s how. CBD is one of hundreds of phytocannabinoids naturally produced by the hemp plant. The human body has an endocannabinoid system called the ECS, which is composed of internal cannabinoids and receptors. There are two primary receptors. CB1 receptors are mainly found in the brain and nervous system, and CB2 receptors are primarily found in the body’s immune system and other organs. When stimulated, this system supports balance, stability, and overall homeostasis in the body.

One way we can stimulate and support the ECS is by supplementing plant-based cannabinoids, such as CBD. In turn, this can target the brain, nervous system, and immune system influencing sleep, appetite, mood, stress response, inflammation, pain, memory, and more.

All of our CBD products, including tinctures, gummies, balms, vaping products, and more, can help restore balance.

Beat the Treats

There are a few ways CBD can help you navigate if you typically indulge in too many treats this time of year. First, because hemp-based products are THC-free, they don’t give you the munchies like marijuana products. The way CBD supports the body’s endocannabinoid system could actually help regulate healthy levels of hunger and fullness.

Second, CBD is like a power-packed superfood. It’s rich in essential fatty acids that are beneficial for cardiovascular health, hormones, and the immune system. Hemp contains all 20 amino acids, making it a complete protein. CBD is a source of B6, B12, riboflavin, niacin, and thiamine,  Vitamin C, Vitamin E, iron, and flavonoids.  As you can see, CBD adds a powerful punch to any diet.

Third, CBD can fit into a vegan, paleo, or keto diet. If you’re a practicing vegan, look for CBD products that are dairy-free and gelatin-free, like Relive Everyday’s gummies. CBD tinctures are typically based in coconut or olive oil, making them plant-based.

If you’re paleo, know that hemp has been around for over 10,000 years and is considered an ancient superfood. People have been eating hemp seeds for their high essential fatty acid and protein content for centuries. CBD is an excellent choice if you’re keto and fits right into a low-carb protocol. Many people turn to keto for weight loss and quickly find it helps reduce inflammation, making CBD the perfect compliment. CBD will not kick you out of ketosis or fat-burning mode. Look for drops and capsules that use MCT oil as a carrier, or try CBD topicals. 

CBD Stress Buster

Studies show CBD may help reduce the fight or flight response and have anti-anxiety properties. Here’s how it works. The ECS helps the body maintain balance with cannabinoid receptors present in the parts of the brain that control emotional behavior, mood, stress, and fear.

Studies show CBD’s impact on the ECS and the nervous system helps PTSD patients manage symptoms. Patients reported a 75% reduction in PTSD symptoms when using cannabis compared to when they were not.

Soothe Aches & Pains

We’ve got three reasons to try CBD topicals and balms this holiday. May we suggest dropping these into stockings? First, topicals deliver safe and effective natural ingredients right to your pain spots. Second, CBD topicals are practical alternatives to NSAIDs and highly-addictive opioid pain medications. Third, topicals are perfect for the temporary muscle and joint pain associated with arthritis, backache, strains, and sprains. Look for blends such as RE-ALIGN with THC-free broad-spectrum hemp extract, menthol, and camphor.  RE-ALIGN also includes skin-nurturing ingredients like beeswax, shea butter, eucalyptus globulus leaf oil, sunflower seed oil, peppermint oil, jojoba seed oil, and clove bud oil. Or try RE-FLEX. This is a fast-acting liquid that can cover large areas in a couple of sprays. It contains THC-free broad-spectrum hemp extract. Each spray delivers camphor and menthol right to your pain sites.

Both RE-ALIGN AND RE-FLEX come in different levels giving you options to customize your relief.
