Top Reasons to take CBD Everyday!
If you’ve experienced stress, discomfort, or sleep challenges, you’ve no doubt heard about CBD. Over the past few years, CBD has seemingly popped up everywhere — and for good reason! While we’re generally still in the early stages of CBD research, growing testimony and anecdotal evidence have shown that CBD can be a very effective tool for addressing a wide array of health goals. For some, initial results can be immediate. For the majority, it takes time, patience, and consistency to find real success with a CBD routine. Perhaps you find yourself asking why you should take CBD every day, so we put together a list of the benefits.
1. Say Goodbye to Anxiety
While marijuana is often linked to causing or worsening anxiety, it’s usually when individuals smoke strains that are high in THC. These strains tend to raise your heart rate, among other things, which leads to you feeling anxious. Reports of feeling anxious are significantly lower when the strain of cannabis being consumed is higher in CBD. This is because CBD is proven to counteract anxiety and the components of THC that cause it and reduce stress caused by factors unrelated to consuming cannabis.
2. Reduce Your Blood Sugar
Studies going back to 2013 have shown that CBD can help you control your weight by regulating blood sugar levels in the body. In these studies, it was found that despite the reputation consuming cannabis has for giving you the “munchies,” regular consumers were far less likely to develop diabetes as they got older. CBD has also been linked to people maintaining smaller waistlines for those who use it regularly.
3. Lower Your Risk of Cancer
The cannabinoids found in marijuana are known to activate receptors throughout our body which produce a variety of positive effects; this allows the central nervous system and immune system to produce many pharmacological effects. CBD is used to reduce cancerous tumors’ size and combat the adverse effects of treatments like chemotherapy.
4. Reduce Chronic Pain and Inflammation
By activating the endocannabinoid system, CBD reduces chronic pain and inflammation; many diseases often come with these symptoms, and CBD works against them to help you feel better. Reducing the pain suffered when affected by these ailments makes it easier to go about life normally and keep strength up, which is extremely important for fighting off illness and staying healthy.
5. Clear Skin and Rashes
Everyone wants clear skin, and CBD has the tools to help achieve this dream. CBD has been effective against acne because of its anti-inflammatory properties. When it reduces inflammation, it lowers sebum, and less sebum translates to fewer blemishes.
6. Enjoy a Better Night’s Rest
Nothing beats a good night’s sleep! According to the American Sleep Association, CBD influences the endocannabinoid system in the brain to promote sleep. While the mechanism of how CBD causes rest is still unknown, they suggest CBD helps induce sleep and reduce insomnia by interacting with receptors involved with the sleep/wake cycle.
7. Support Brain Health
CBD doesn’t have the power to make you smarter, but it can help keep your brain strong and healthy. By prioritizing your brain health, you may be reducing your chances of developing a neurological disorder. CBD can regulate the expression of genes that have been linked to developing Alzheimer’s. In addition, CBD can decrease inflammation in the brain, which slows down the rate of dying brain cells. Since inflammation is a significant source of Alzheimer’s disease, symptoms can be alleviated using CBD oil. CBD also exerts antioxidant properties and has been linked to helping with memory loss and slowing the decline of several brain areas.
8. Support Your Heart
CBD has captured the hearts of millions of users. CBD research on the heart is still in its early stages, but it looks promising. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD could protect the heart as inflammation is associated with coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke. By reducing inflammation, CBD could decrease the risk for atherosclerosis, which narrows the arteries and blocks blood flow to and from the heart.
These are just eight ways that taking CBD can change your life, and there are many more! When taken daily, most say CBD helped them meet their long-term health goals. We may not always be able to stop the many micro-stressors that come with our busy lives, but we can care for ourselves in how we cope with day-to-day stress with the help of CBD. Taking CBD daily maximizes the strength and effectiveness of the body’s ECS, Endocannabinoid System.
