Say No To Stay-At-Home Siestas – How CBD Might Help You Conquer Your After-Lunch Slump

You don’t need to be in an office to feel the “afternoon slump.” In fact, many employees report feeling super tired late in the day while working from home. Considering all the challenges of COVID-19, that’s totally understandable. The stress of social distancing can certainly sap your energy…plus, all that extra snacking probably doesn’t help.

Interestingly, CBD energy drinks might be an all-natural fix for your afternoon yawn sessions. If you’re someone who struggles with after-lunch fatigue, we strongly encourage you to look into this cannabinoid’s potential. 

In this post, we’re going to explain some cutting-edge research on how CBD could promote alertness throughout the day. Plus, we’ll reveal two of the most common reasons behind after-lunch fatigue.    

How Could CBD Boost My Productivity? 

Many people claim CBD helps them feel more productive, but does this have any basis in science? According to a 2014 study out of Mexico, it might! 

Researchers at the Universidad Anáhuac Mayab recently analyzed how CBD might affect our sense of wakefulness. Amazingly, scientists discovered that CBD seemed to influence the brain’s hypothalamus. 

Amongst other functions, the hypothalamus appears to play a central role in sleep regulation. Since CBD might spark activity in this region, scientists hypothesized it might promote a sense of alertness during the day.   

Although this research is preliminary, it helps explain why many people report sensations like increased focus after taking CBD. It’s also a major reason we were inspired to create our all-natural CBD Energy Drink packets.

Each of our fruity-flavored energy drink packets contains 7.5 mg of broad-spectrum CBD from American-grown hemp. Our CBD Energy Drink also includes traces of organic caffeine and green tea to give you an extra push. We pride ourselves on using no artificial ingredients in all of our products.

Could Dehydration Make You Drowsy?  

Although carbs often get blamed for the post-lunch crash, there are many potential causes for your midday slumber. In fact, one of the most common reasons for the afternoon slump is chronic dehydration.

If you’ve followed our recent blog posts, you know that roughly 75 percent of Americans are dehydrated. Many of the symptoms of dehydration (e.g., tiredness, headaches, and irritability) look incredibly similar to afternoon fatigue. 

If you’re one of the many people who struggle to work water into your day, here’s a hydration hack: try our CBD Hydration Drink Mix. Each of these lemony-sweet packets contains essential electrolytes without artificial sweeteners. As a bonus, you’ll also enjoy 10 mg of CBD to help you stay focused on your tasks. 

For Peak Productivity, Work On Your Sleep Routine

Every energetic day requires a peaceful night. You’ll be amazed at how much more productive you are if you commit to getting the recommended seven hours of sleep per night. 

Of course, in our crazy computerized world, it can be challenging to get seven hours of shuteye. That’s why Chil Wellness put together our potent CBD Deep Sleep Capsules. Unlike our CBD Energy Drink packets, each of these capsules takes advantage of CBD’s sedative potential with traces of chamomile, valerian root and melatonin.
