Are you tired of hearing how important it is to incorporate that natural product or ingredient into your wellness routine? If you are, we don’t blame you. The wellness market is oversaturated with so many must-haves and, after a while, you start to feel numb to new and actually helpful products. If you are picky about adding new products into your daily routine, you might have been skeptical about including hemp-derived CBD. Reports show that one in seven Americans uses CBD-based products, primarily for pain, anxiety, and sleeplessness. However, the vast majority of Americans don’t understand the incredible advantages this component offers.
Many know about the use of CBD solely in the form of tincture or oil but the market offers various interesting ways to benefit from this component. But, before we get into the practical ways to include hemp-derived CBD into your wellness routine, let’s discuss the why behind this component.
Why Should CBD Be an Important Part of Your Wellness Routine?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychotropic compound found in the hemp plant. CBD became such a popular compound in the wellness world because it’s a powerhouse that wakes up the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). According to studies, the endocannabinoid system is a newly-discovered system of receptors “scattered” all around the body and the brain. The ECS maintains the homeostasis (balance) of the human organism by playing a significant role in regulating the immune system, mood, appetite, pain sensation, and more.
For centuries, people have been using marijuana for medicinal purposes. Today, people are avoiding the plant because of its high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychotropic component in cannabis. With CBD, it’s an entirely different story because this component does not create any psychotropic effect, or get the user “high.” CBD does have psychoactive effects (different from psychotropic), which means it has the power to drive change in the body without getting the user stoned.
Four Easy and Effective Ways to Incorporate CBD into Your Wellness Routine
1. CBD Bath Bombs for Relaxation and Sleep
Exhausted after a long day? If you are an avid user of bath bombs (they are kind of addicting), consider switching from a “regular” to a CBD-infused bath bomb. CBD helps relax your entire body, so you are guaranteed a chill and quiet evening followed by a good night’s rest. This potent and natural CBD bath bomb will help you relax and heal at the same time. Formulated with a powerful combination of natural ingredients, this vegan CBD bath bomb brings up to 100 mg of healing CBD into your bathtub.
Soak your skin in the soothing properties of CBD and shea butter, perfect for moisturizing and protecting your skin. The anti-inflammatory effects of CBD will calm your skin and give it a much-needed break from all of the daily stressors.
Winding down after a long day or long week is vital for your wellbeing. Wash off all of the negative events of the day with our natural, additive-free bath bombs. We promise you, you won’t find a better product for your bathtub nighttime wellness routine.
2. CBD Tincture to Jumpstart Your Morning
Primarily used to help anxiety and pain, CBD tinctures have great absorption rates — if taken sublingually (under the tongue) — and provide you with a long-lasting dose to help you jumpstart the day. CBD tinctures are everywhere, but not all of them are made equal. Kanna CBD’s Vitality CBD Tincture contains 1000 mg of full-spectrum hemp extract. The reason why you should always go for full-spectrum CBD products is that they contain an abundance of hemp cannabinoids, terpenes, and other nutrients naturally found in the hemp plant.
According to research, the more components your CBD oil contains, the more potent it is. If the tincture you are getting is rich in various hemp compounds, they will work together to create a more powerful effect, also known as the “entourage effect.” This effect will not be initiated if you are using a CBD oil that contains CBD as its only ingredient and has no terpenes. Terpenes play a major role in the potency and effectiveness of a CBD extract. For example, limonene is a hemp terpene also found in citrus fruits like oranges and lemons and is considered a strong mood booster that can relieve stress and anxiety due to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. Therefore, our Vitality CBD Tincture is enriched with organic coconut oil, organic hemp seed oil, and the terpene limonene.
3. Healthy Skin with CBD Birch Tar Recovery Bar
Traditionally used for treating acne, skin irritation, and discoloration, this Birch Tar Bar is pure African Black Soap infused with CBD and Sea Clay, making a powerful anti-inflammatory and antiseptic combo. Coming straight from nature, the African Black Soap’s drying properties have an immediate effect on skin irritations. If you are dealing with common skin conditions, you should try a different approach to the usual treatments or add this natural CBD-infused product to your routine.
The Sea Clay will hydrate and moisturize your skin, which makes this product perfect for dry skin or skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. In fact, one study revealed that the use of black soap helps reduce symptoms of various dermatological conditions. Although more research is needed on the connection between CBD and skin health, some studies show positive results. A study that evaluated the health of the skin before administration of a topical CBD ointment found that the CBD-enriched ointment without THC can significantly improve the lives of patients with certain skin disorders.
5. Pain Relief with CBD Cooling Gel
As we get older, our bodies become less flexible and more prone to different injuries, pains, and aches. Having a product that helps your muscles and joints heal faster after exercise, long hours of sitting, or acute back, neck, or shoulder injury, can greatly improve your wellbeing. This CBD-infused cooling gel is a powerful formula that provides quick relief from sore and tired muscles, tight spots, and back pain. Ideal for both regular and occasional use, this CBD cooling gel will give you a pleasant massage on the affected area and instantly ease inflamed spots and acute upper and lower back pain. No more tension with this CBD cooling gel as the product addresses a specific area directly.
How does the gel work? When you are using CBD topicals such as this cooling gel, the CBD doesn’t reach the bloodstream but gets absorbed through the skin’s surface where the cannabinoids in the gel interact with the cannabinoid receptors located in the skin. It’s important to note that the skin has low permeability, meaning it only absorbs a small percentage of topicals. So, to increase the effect of CBD cooling gel to the skin, regular use is essential.
Considering the amount of new natural products that promise to boost your wellbeing, you might be skeptical about adding a new one. But, with all of the benefits hemp-derived CBD products offer to the endocannabinoid system, adding at least one CBD product to your routine might be game-changing in the long run. Routines are there to be shaken up and improved, so order your CBD product today and see how it works for you.
