CBD is the talk of the town, and for good reason: the list of potential health benefits is endless and we are just breaching the surface. But how does it work? Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a “cannabinoid”—a naturally occurring compound found in hemp. Our bodies have what’s called an endocannabinoid system—a system which regulates homeostasis in areas like sleep, appetite, pain, and mood—and our bodies naturally produce “endocannabinoids” such as those produced when jogging, giving you a runner’s high.
Studies have shown that imbalance in areas such as sleep and appetite can be due in part to an “endocannabinoid deficiency,” which can be balanced by supplementing cannabinoids like CBD into your routine. While there is still so much more research to be done in this exciting area of study, here are some major ways CBD might be able to enhance your active lifestyle…
1. It can relieve muscle/joint pain, inflammation, and even headaches
Studies have shown that of all cannabinoids found in the hemp plant—and there are hundreds!—CBD is the absolute best anti-inflammatory and is one of the most effective at delivering pain relief. This makes CBD the perfect post-workout supplement, great for athletes or for people suffering with arthritis. Applying a broad-spectrum topical like Evn CBD Salve could rejuvenate tired muscles and help speed recovery after exercise and strenuous activity.
Or here’s an idea: try a massage with Evn CBD Cooling Cream—rejuvenating CBD with shea butter and soothing botanical extracts to hydrate and nourish the skin, as well as menthol for an added cooling sensation.
Because of CBD’s pain relieving, anti-inflammatory properties, a product like Evn CBD Curcumin Capsules could even be perfect when you have a headache. Combined with CBD, these capsules contain curcumin, the active component of the spice turmeric, which in itself has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
2. It can relieve stress and anxiety
It’s no secret one of the biggest roadblocks to good health is stress and anxiety—even with proper exercise, people often find themselves overwhelmed by all life throws at them (especially in times like these) and their health suffers as a result of not addressing their stress and anxiety head-on.
Well, thank goodness for CBD! Studies have found a sense of calm and well-being as one of the most common effects described by CBD users. Although, of course, CBD affects everyone differently.
One of the best ways to find out if CBD could help relieve your stress or anxiety would be to take 10mg of high-quality, broad spectrum CBD, in whatever form you fancy—from gummies to tinctures and beyond—and increase your dose as needed. Evn CBD Gummy Bears (and Sour Gummy Bears) are great tasting, meticulously manufactured, and sourced from premium, organic hemp farms to deliver 10mg of the purest CBD on the market. Many people find their sweet spot to be 2-3 gummies per day, taken intermittently.
As for a faster-acting (as well as vegan) alternative: try Evn CBD Oil. This under-the-tongue tincture can kick in within about 15 minutes whereas gummies can take up to an hour to kick in. And Evn CBD Oil comes in higher concentrations, too.
3. It can help you get better sleep
Ah, sleep… the most obvious, yet overlooked (and often the most difficult) ingredient of them all toward a healthy, active lifestyle. No, none of this matters if you can’t manage to get good, restful sleep. If only there was a potential solution…yes, you’ve guessed it! C-B-D.
Along with the seemingly endless list of health benefits CBD delivers, aiding with sleep is one of them. Besides the fact CBD is an anti-anxietal, our body’s endocannabinoid system, which CBD interacts with, also regulates homeostasis in sleep. That means, whether you get too much sleep or not enough, the endocannabinoid system is responsible, so by taking a pure, broad-spectrum CBD you can better balance your endocannabinoid system and, thus, potentially get better sleep.
In addition to their organic, full spectrum CBD gummies and oils, Evn just launched their new Sleep Powder made with a sleep-enhancing blend of vitamins and minerals like Magnesium, Passion Flower, L-Theanine, & Melatonin) for a deep, restful sleep. This water-soluble CBD powder is chocolate flavored and lightly sweetened with stevia so you can enjoy a nightly treat while you unwind!
