Feeling Free With CBD: How CBD Could Improve Your Independence Day
From 1776 onwards, America has been guided by the ideals in the Declaration of Independence: namely, that everyone has the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” It’s on the Fourth of July that we celebrate these freedoms and reflect on our past. Even though this year’s festivities might be “socially distant,” that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun exercising our freedoms with friends and family.
At Chil Wellness, we’re also passionate about freedom — specifically, the many freedoms that high-quality CBD offers. If you’ve never tried CBD before, you might be surprised at how significant a change this cannabinoid could make in your life.
Three Ways CBD Could Make You “Feel-Free”
Go Where You Please; Rub CBD On Your Knees!
The Fourth of July is a fantastic time to reconnect with nature and participate in outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and kayaking. Of course, many revelers also enjoy walking (socially distant this year, of course) in parades and marching bands to mark this most festive occasion.
Unfortunately, millions of Americans do not feel as “free” to move as they used to. The American Chiropractic Association estimates 31 million Americans now experience some degree of lower back pain. Read more about arthritis in America in our previous blog.
Although it might sound too good to be true, studies show that CBD could play a vital role in treating common chronic pain conditions. For instance, researchers in Brazil recently found that CBD could reduce swelling on intervertebral discs. Harvard Medical School also claims recent lab and animal studies suggest CBD could have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.
If you’re one of the countless Americans struggling with chronic pain, we encourage you to look into Aspen’s Maximum Relief Salve. Made with advanced Bio-Nano technology, our salve delivers a potent dose of hemp-derived CBD wherever you need relief. Each bottle of Aspen’s Max Relief Salve also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds, including peppermint oil, Boswellia, and menthol to aid in the relief of chronic pain.
Annihilate Anxiety With A CBD Tincture
Exercising your freedom of speech can be liberating — but it could also be downright terrifying! Recent statistics suggest that roughly 15 million Americans struggle with social anxiety disorder (SAD). If you frequently experience anxiety-related symptoms (i.e. shortness of breath, uncontrollable sweating, or heart palpitations), then you might be happy to learn that CBD could calm your nerves.
One study out of the University of São Paulo examined the effects CBD had on SAD sufferers. For this trial, researchers split a group of SAD patients into two groups: the first group took CBD capsules, while the others were given placebo pills.
Interestingly, the people who took the CBD pills reported less worry when giving a public speech. Scientists also found people in the CBD group had fewer heart palpitations.
If you’d like to experience CBD’s calming effects, we recommend starting with our Mellow Mint CBD Tincture. For the best results, place a few drops underneath your tongue and hold for a few seconds before swallowing. This method allows your tongue’s sublingual glands to absorb the CBD directly into your bloodstream.
Enhance Your “Free-Time” With Soothing CBD Topicals
In our crazy computerized world, it has never been more important to learn how to unplug, unwind, and recharge. For your sanity, we recommend scheduling plenty of “you-time” into your schedule.
Here are just a few of the best science-backed, stress-busting habits to consider adding to your routine:
• Take a warm bath filled with Epsom salt.
• Meditate for a minimum of 15 minutes every day.
• Listen to beautiful classical music.
To supercharge your relaxation session, consider rubbing our De-Stress Essential Oil Roller on your temples. Filled with citrusy essential oils and plenty of CBD, our De-Stress Essential Oil Roller is a discreet way to diminish your daily worries.
