For most of us, 2020 has been a year we won’t soon forget. Definitely, one for the history books. Throughout the entire world, the Coronavirus pandemic has caused tremendous disruption to our lives. For many, there have been effects felt physically, financially, and emotionally. With this in mind, we have seen CBD become more popular due to its ability to help calm and ground us
Conversely, some of us have seen life change only slightly with the biggest difference being that we are working from home. This has allowed for more time to be dedicated to focusing on self-care and family wellness. Encompassing better wellness routines and regimes has increased the desire for CBD due to its ability to help balance our immune systems.
CBD is the perfect “buddy” for us whether we are dealing with difficult times or we are living with relative ease.
HOW CBD HELPS WITH COMBATTING STRESS
Our body has a system called the endocannabinoid system. Since CBD is an endocannabinoid our body recognizes it easily. It interacts with our body in almost the same way as our self made cannabinoids do, called our endogenous cannabinoids. Endogenous cannabinoids have receptors throughout our entire body with one that reacts with serotonin, a feel-good hormone that helps mitigate feelings of anxiety. When CBD binds with one of serotonin’s receptors our body produces a feeling of ease and a reduction of anxious feelings. CBD works with our endocannabinoid system to help with homeostasis, or balancing, of our systems so they can work more effectively and efficiently.
BOOSTING YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
In regards to our immune system, CBD is known as an immunomodulator. As a modulator, CBD helps keep the immune system in check and helps the immune system be more in balance. Our immune system is in charge of controlling the number of “bad bugs” that gain entrance into our bodies. CBD can help stimulate our immune system when it is lacking and will tell it to calm down when it gets too out of control. It is a smart modulator and knows what our body’s immune system must do to help fight the invaders.
As a natural antioxidant and a carrier of many needed vitamins and phytochemicals, CBD contributes to other defense systems that our body has in order to be well. There are so many stresses in our modern-day lives, even without a worldwide pandemic, that we need to do everything we can to provide for the best chances to stay well.
CBD is also known to help maintain a healthy sleep cycle. With new research being published every day, we are seeing the immense benefits of a solid night’s sleep. The body uses this time to replenish and reset. We need the benefits of sleep to help combat everyday ups and downs. Remember to implement good sleep hygiene, as well as quiet, dark, and cool rooms, to assist with a good night’s sleep.
SO, BE THANKFUL AND GRAB SOME CBD THIS SEASON
We are so thankful to have so many things available to us that help with stress and anxiousness. Adding CBD to your regime along with mindfulness, exercise, and a proper diet and sleep routine can help us comfortably manage life. There are many discreet ways of taking CBD. There are mints, gummies, capsules, and lotions, just to name a few, that can be easily worked into your day to help balance the body. Consider CBD as a best buddy during the next few months and set the next year off on a good foot.
