Whether you’re adding some delicious peppermint CBD oil to your morning English breakfast tea or taking a spritz of CBD oil spray before a long flight, it’s super easy to integrate CBD oil into your daily routine. But what does CBD oil do for you? We’ve got the run-down on our 5 favorite uses and benefits of CBD oil.

 

NATURALLY MANAGE EVERYDAY STRESS
A common use for CBD oil is making it part of your morning routine (shower, blow dry, CBD oil, wink at yourself in the mirror…) can help manage day-to-day stress by calming your busy mind. And you know you’ve got a busy mind. It’s like Grand Central Station up there.

CBD has been shown to act as a receptor for serotonin and anandamide – naturally occurring molecules in our bodies that help us feel calm and happy. Why not treat yourself to a dose of our CBD oil spray in the morning to prep your brain for the day?

FUN FACT: “Anandamide” was first described in a scientific journal in 1992, but its name was taken from the word “Ananda,” which means “joy, bliss, delight” in Sanskrit – a language that’s over 3,500 years old! READ MORE: What is CBD?

HELP THE BODY RECOVER AND RESTORE BALANCE FOLLOWING WORKOUTS AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Inflammation is always stopping by at inconvenient times, a bodily house guest that’s constantly overstaying its welcome. It’s our bodies natural response to harmful stimuli, and it’s a natural reaction to an intense workout, when our bodies go into repair mode and work to refuel our muscles. A dose of our Broad Spectrum Hemp Extract oil drops with CBD can be a great way to help restore your body and manage post-workout pain when your muscles are still a little tender from all those way too many squats you did. READ MORE: What is the Entourage Effect?

PROMOTE HEALTHY SLEEP CYCLES
Sleep! We all need it, we all love it, and so rarely do we get enough of it. CBD can help healthy sleep cycles by reducing all the stuff we mentioned above (Stress! Pain! Monsters in the closet! Wait no, not that one.). Our CBD softgels offer precise, convenient serving sizes that would make a great addition to your sleepy time routine.

SUPPORT YOUR ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
Your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) needs love and attention just like any other system. It’s your body’s master regulatory system, so if it’s off, everything’s off. CBD and other cannabinoids found in hemp mimic the behaviors of our own naturally produced endocannabinoids, and therefore do great work supporting and enhancing our built-in mechanism for balance and wellbeing.

With a regular CBD regiment, you can feel confident you’re taking a small but important step toward taking care of you.

YOU DECIDE HOW MUCH CBD IS BEST FOR YOU
A great way to introduce CBD into your life is to keep a journal and track your feelings – emotional and physical – as you experiment with serving sizes. Maybe a couple of CBD oil drops benefit you more than just one? Or perhaps you find you really hit your clarity stride with four pumps of CBD oil spray in the morning, and four more when you get to work? Maybe you want try introducing some CBD into your meditation or yoga exercises to really promote relaxation. That kind of deliberate, mindful self-awareness will help you stay in tune with yourself and your needs.
