This past year has been a tough one for all of us. Many of us are looking at 2021 as a ceremonious and symbolic turning of the page towards a better life. The balance in our life has been offset in every aspect, including our physical and emotional health. Thankfully, CBD helps promote the balance we need to start 2021 off on the right foot. Here are 10 reasons to incorporate CBD oil into your New Year’s wellness routine.
1. CBD Oil Promotes Balance
You hear the word “balance” thrown about in everyday conversations quite regularly. As humans, we struggle with things like balancing the checkbook or maintaining work-life balance.
Our bodies require balance as well. In science, we call this “homeostasis.”
Whenever things are amiss within the system, cannabinoid receptors on our cells let out distress signals. The mind intercepts these messages and draws our attention to these imbalances.
Cannabinoid receptors influence many factors of our daily lives, including skin health, mood, and workout recovery. Activating these sensors triggers our endocannabinoid system to promote endocannabinoids.
Endocannabinoids stimulate or bind to cannabinoid receptors. In turn, the receptors change their signals. This process ultimately brings balance (homeostasis) back to the endocannabinoid system.
2. Easy to Use for Everyday Maintenance
Many of us are accustomed to daily vitamins, supplements, and medications. Joy Organics’ CBD Softgels Everyday Formula are a great addition to your daily wellness routine. Add the bottle to your medicine cabinet, sort the softgels into your pill organizer, or plop the bottle right next to your toothbrush as a visual reminder for some daily self-care!
Taking a CBD softgel in the morning is an excellent way to kickstart your day. Your body must break down the outer shell and absorb the phytocannabinoids in the formula. So, it takes a little time to feel the effects.
Taking one or two softgels as you start your day will allow you to feel the effects by the time you’re ready to get productive!
3. Fast-Acting Mood Support
Life’s stresses can pop at a moment’s notice. These curveballs can really take us out of our game and into our heads. CBD tinctures are an excellent way to experience real-time support for your mental state.
CBD tinctures also allow you the freedom to adjust your serving to meet your needs. Plus, they taste so darn good! If Tranquil Mint isn’t your thing, be sure to check out Summer Lemon, Orange Bliss, or Natural!
4. Promotes Energy Without the Jitters
The endocannabinoid system has cannabinoid receptors in the brain. These receptors might influence your mood or ability to focus.
Many of us turn to coffee or sugar-laden energy drinks for our daily pick-me-up. We love a good cup of coffee as much as the next person. However, too much caffeine and/or sugar from these options can cause you to become anxious and result in physical withdrawals during a comedown or sugar crash.
This natural beverage provides the stimulation you love from caffeine, plus the CBD oil offers the support your system needs as the caffeine wears away. As a result, you are less likely to feel anxious, or experience interrupted sleep.
5. All-Natural Skincare
Skin is so much more than just what we see on the outside—our looks, our age, etc. It’s the barrier that helps keep pathogens outside while playing host to our organs and healthy bacteria inside.
Cannabinoid receptors act as the guard dogs on the inside of the barrier. They lie beneath the skin, waiting for any potential threats.
Whenever pathogens enter the system, cannabinoid receptors alert the endocannabinoid system. In turn, we may experience temporary discomfort.
CBD topicals are an excellent way to nourish your skin while soothing cannabinoid receptors. Phytocannabinoids are lipids, which help give your skin cells structure. Plus, using CBD topicals allows for targeted care.
Just rub Joy Organics’ USDA-Certified Organic CBD Salve directly into the area in need of TLC. Phytocannabinoids and other skin-rejuvenating botanicals will penetrate the skin so you can recapture your healthy, natural glow.
6. Supports Healthy Joints and Muscles
Some of us really like to massage our achy joints and muscles. Enhance the power of touch by incorporating Joy Organics’ CBD Sports Cream into your self-care routine.
This natural formula uses a proprietary blend of essential oils to provide a cooling sensation. It’s also enriched with skin-soothing botanicals that boosts your natural radiance.
7. Assists Natural Sleep Cycles
If you are going to be well in 2021, you need plenty of beauty rest. When we sleep, our body relaxes and repairs itself. After a night of healthy sleep cycles, you wake up refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead.
Unfortunately, stress can keep your mind racing all night. Therefore, your body doesn’t get the rest it needs and deserves.
CBD oil helps ease some of this chatter so that you can fall asleep peacefully. Joy Organics’ CBD Softgels with Melatonin for Sleep incorporates melatonin, a natural hormone used to support regular sleep patterns.
8. CBD Is Non-Habit Forming
Many of us turn to over-the-counter remedies or mask our issues with alcohol or caffeine. While these “solutions” seem like the right answer at the time, they can also have potential long-term effects. For one, they can become habit-forming.
CBD oil is non-intoxicating. You don’t have to worry about any potential negative mind-altering experiences that can cause a physical dependency. Plus, you won’t experience physical withdrawal symptoms if you decide to stop using CBD oil.
Full spectrum CBD oil contains minimal amounts of THC, the psychoactive molecule in marijuana. At such a low serving of THC, full spectrum CBD oil doesn’t have habit-forming or mind-altering side effects. It just promotes wellness.
9. Hemp is Natural and Sustainable
In 2020, we have been forced to become more aware of how we treat our bodies and the planet. The human race is looking for more ethically-sourced, environmentally-friendly, and natural products. Many CBD products check off all these boxes!
Hemp is one of the oldest commodities which humans have used since the beginning of time for food, clothing, and wellness.
10. It’s Fun!
There are so many CBD products that can support a healthy and active lifestyle. You can mix and match your wellness routines to meet your needs and preferences.
For instance, you can relax in the tub after a long day by unwinding with Joy Organics’ CBD Bath Bombs. Get a head start on post-workout care by enjoying one of Joy Organics’ Green Apple CBD Gummies. Calm first date nerves with a kiss of Joy Organics’ Orange Bliss CBD Tinctures!
Speaking of tinctures, they give you the autonomy to customize your wellness regimen to the next level. You can add CBD tinctures to any of your favorite base oils to create DIY CBD massage oils. Otherwise, add a couple drops into your next spritzer for a relaxing mocktail.
The important thing is to not stress it. Implement different products and lifestyle changes into your routine to see what works for you.
