For the last few years, CBD has grown in popularity and you most likely have a friend or two who swear by its benefits. Understandably, you may have found yourself asking a few questions like, what is the deal with CBD, why is it all of a sudden so popular, and does it really work? Let’s answer a few questions and explore the benefits of CBD.
Cannabidiol (CBD) comes from the cannabis plant, however, it’s derived from the hemp plant and does not have the psychoactive attributes that sometimes come with marijuana. While hemp and marijuana belong to the same genus and species, Cannabis sativa, (marijuana) contains THC that can get you high, while hemp does not. As a non-psychoactive product, CBD holds many of the healing properties of medical marijuana without the head-high. CBD is so popular because it is a holistic, plant-based solution that so many people have found as their solution to overcome their mental, physical, and emotional obstacles… just ask our Blooming Botanicals advocates.
- Pain Relief
Pain doesn’t have to keep you from living your best life.
Pain relief doesn’t always have to come in the form of systematic, traditional western medication. Pills and surgery may not always be the best answer nor the right option for you. Mainstream medicine often leaves people feeling unaware or incognizant of how the medication is impacting their lives, their social interactions, and their overall health and wellbeing. Pain relief doesn’t have to be difficult and there may be an easier, healthier way. CBD provides multiple options for pain relief and can be taken orally or applied topically. When applied on the skin, CBD has the potential to help lower pain and inflammation from arthritis, injuries, and chronic ailments. Topical body care options such as our Herbal Healing Salve and Whipped Chocolate CBD Body Butter provide an easy solution to incorporate CBD into your daily routine and may repress inflammatory and neuropathic pain, two of the most difficult types of chronic pain to treat.
- Improved Sleep Quality
Better sleep can lead to an improved outlook on life.
It is so important to understand the importance of sleep and its contribution to your overall wellbeing. Sleep deprivation is a real issue and can potentially have a negative impact on your professional and personal life. Once you recognize a lack of sleep as an issue in your life, how do you find the answer to getting back to waking up feeling refreshed, like you can conquer the world? There is an endless list of things that cause poor sleep and an endless list of medical solutions, often with many negative side effects. Many researchers say that CBD improves sleep because it tackles the root causes of insomnia. Others say that it helps with the causes of sleeplessness such as pain or anxiety. Regardless of the reason you are experiencing a lack of sleep, CBD can help you to fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer, especially when it is combined with additional relaxation herbal infusions, such as lavender, which is available from Blooming Botanicals. The success of CBD in helping you sleep better will depend on a number of factors such as your weight, personal body chemistry, and the nature of your sleeping troubles. Finding the correct CBD dose is key in finding the relief you deserve.
- Mental Wellness
Reduce Depression, Anxiety, and Stress
Take a minute to think about where you are in your journey to your best life. What is keeping you from achieving your goals and aspirations? If anxiety, stress, or depression is the answer to that question, know that you are not alone and there may be a better way that fits with your lifestyle. Depression is the single largest contributor to disability worldwide, and anxiety disorders are ranked sixth. The good news is that CBD is bringing a lot of hope to so many people living with depression and/or anxiety. If left untreated or ignored, both can lead to a whole new array of issues. Recognizing that you need a new solution is the first step toward healing your body and your mind. Incorporating CBD regularly into your daily routine is a simple solution that can have short-term and long-term benefits. CBD contains anti-depressant like qualities that act on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior. The cannabinoids interact with your endocannabinoid system, which helps your body maintain a state of balance and stability or homeostasis.
