5 Problems CBD Can Help With
CBD can really seem like one of those “seems fake, but ok” things, because it’s credited with soothing so many different kinds of problems. Like, how can the same thing that eases anxiety also help you recover after a workout? You wouldn’t pop a Tylenol if you were feeling anxious, but you would when your muscles were sore, so how can CBD help with both of those? It can seem confusing, but it’s not just a wellness industry scam. The short answer to that is our endocannabinoid system deals with a lot, and CBD gives that system a little boost to keep it running in peak form. We’ll explain five problems CBD can help solve and how, because it’s not too good to be true. Once you start working Daily Habit into your routine, you’ll see what we mean.
If you get into bed and your mind starts running a marathon of all the embarrassing things you’ve ever said, CBD can be a real game-changer. Since CBD can help you relax without the psychoactive effects of THC, many people take it before bed to help calm their minds so they can fall asleep. For this, we obviously don’t recommend a cup of Daily Habit-infused coffee before bedtime—unless it’s decaf. Maybe get a little 2-in-1 action going by mixing it into your Sleepytime tea?
Just like how CBD can help with insomnia, it can also assist with anxiety. You know the deal: all the chill vibes of hemp but none of the high from THC. That’s good news for anyone who’s ever gotten freaked out by being too high. And in even better news from those of us who don’t love some of the side effects of weed…
Even if you’re the type of person who gets the munchies from THC, CBD is not going to make you want to overeat. Say it again: all the calm, none of the high! In fact, when it comes to eating, the opposite can be true with CBD: it might help curb emotional eating. Part of that has to do with the fact that emotional eating can be caused by anxiety, and if you’ve been paying attention, you know CBD can help with—you already know the answer—anxiety. The endocannabinoids can also help regulate the body’s stress response so you’re not reaching for a bag of chips just because you got an email from your boss with the subject line “URGENT!!!” And since all CBD is not created equal, Daily Habit CBD in particular is useful for curbing emotional eating since it uses MCT oil as a carrier, which keeps you full and can serve as an appetite suppressant.
Focus & Concentration
Starting your day with Daily Habit in your coffee can help keep you in the zone. Our CBD is made with MCT oil, which helps with brain and memory function. Plus, the healthy fats from coconut oil powder help the CBD last longer in your system, meaning you might not have to reach for that 2pm coffee to stay productive.
Now, here’s the one seeming outlier in this equation, the one problem that doesn’t have to do with your mental state. Can CBD really help with inflammation and all these other things? The answer is yes, it can. Basically, your body has endocannabinoid receptors that help your body stay in a stable resting state (otherwise known as homeostasis), and inflammation is your body’s natural defense mechanism to fight off bad stuff. CBD affects activity in the body’s cannabinoid receptors, stimulating the receptors that get activated by the body’s inflammatory response. That means it can help reduce pain and inflammation.
The endocannibinoid system helps you deal with a lot, so it makes sense that CBD can help with a variety of issues. CBD isn’t a miracle supplement, it’s just science at work. We recommend giving Daily Habit a try for at least two weeks to let your body get adjusted and start feeling the effects.
