5 Reasons CBD is Taking Over the Wellness World
Move over coconut oil and kale – there’s a new health trend making the rounds, and this one is here to stay. From lifestyle websites like Refinery 291 and medical sites like WebMD2, the benefits of hemp’s CBD oil are all over the internet. And for good reason. The life-changing potential is real! Here’s why:
1. It’s the Ultimate Multi-Tasker
CBD works with the receptors in the body’s Endocannabinoid System, which can affect nearly every biological process including sleep, digestion, hormone regulation, inflammation and cognition.
A key ingredient that helps make this all-in-one effect possible is terpenes. This compound is produced in the hemp plant and wears a lot of health-related hats, including inhibiting the development of cancer cells, alleviating muscle cramps, treating insomnia, providing supports overall wellness properties and relieving breathing problems4. Quite the résumé!
And pretty soon, all these benefits will be combined with another – superior hydration. Our CBD-infused Water is available starting next month, supporting your system with all the benefits of CBD in addition to keeping you hydrated.
2. It’s Plant-Based
What we eat and drink affects every aspect of our lives. That’s why our CBD oil is sourced from organically grown, non-GMO and pesticide-free hemp right here in the U.S. We work with expert cultivators on farms in the San Luis Valley of Colorado for complete traceability from seed to you for every product we produce.
Plus, the synergy of ingredients found in our CBD oil products comes from the entire hemp plant, exactly as you’d find it in its natural state. Nature knows what works best, after all! Full plant extract contains all the beneficial compounds from the hemp plant like cannabidiol (CBD), secondary cannabinoids, terpenoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. All of these compounds work together to enhance the beneficial effects of CBD in the body, just as nature intended.
3. It Plays Well with Others
While all of the ingredients in the hemp plant work together to give you the most benefits, hemp also works side-by-side with other natural supplements to provide that much needed daily mental boost or sought-after pain relief. According to Project CBD, “Many of these compounds interact synergistically to create what scientists refer to as an ‘entourage effect’ that magnifies the therapeutic benefits of the plants’ individual components.”5 To break that down, it simply means the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
For example, our Gummies also contain Turmeric, which is an supports overall wellness and antioxidant6 that increases the effectiveness and absorption of CBD7. Want targeted topical relief? Our Lotion also contains menthol crystals that work together with CBD to soothe aching joints.
And all of these benefits come without the horrible side effects that many prescription medications can cause. Taking many pharmaceutical drugs long-term can cause liver damage, but with new CBD-based treatment plans that long-term treatment is less risky (when taken responsibly).
4. It Treats the Mind, Body & Soul
Hemp is a well-known adaptogen, meaning it is a natural substance that can help the body adapt to stress in a number of ways – physically, chemically and biologically – depending on your needs. Finally, a supplement that can read our minds!
It also exerts a normalizing effect on bodily processes. Hemp seeks out what’s “off” to bring balance and stability back, whether that means lowering anxiety, refocusing your mind, or lessening pain. For a holistic approach to health and wellness, CBD oil is one of the best ways people are harnessing the benefits of hemp in their daily lives.
5. It’s Easy to Incorporate into Your Life
Most health trends require quite the effort: Slather on an entire palm-full of grapeseed oil before bed every night, with downward motions in a rotating pattern side to side. But only within 5 minutes of drinking at least 8 full ounces of water with apple cider vinegar!
Sound familiar? It can all be a bit overwhelming, and that’s why they come and go. But CBD oil is super easy to make part of your wellness or self-care routine, which means you’re more likely to stick with it. Our Capsules are the most classic way to join the CBD family. Just take one every morning on your way out the door or make them part of your bedtime routine. It’s really that simple. And shouldn’t taking care of yourself be, well, simple?
