You’ve probably heard about CBD products by now and if you have yet to try them you could be curious about the benefits they could bring to your life. But how can you know if they’re the right fit for you?
Firstly, CBD has a wide range of uses and can therefore be appropriate for a vast number of people. As an article for We Heart recently explained, that means it could help you even if it’s not something you’ve considered before.
There are many ways in which you can take CBD too. If you don’t fancy the idea of a tincture, there are also products like our CBD infused honey which provide you with an alternative (and tasty) way of ingesting CBD and introducing it to your lifestyle.
According to the publication, one group of people who may benefit from introducing CBD to their diets are those with particularly busy or hectic lifestyles. The reason being that CBD can boost your energy levels, which means it can be useful to have on hand for those days where you’re struggling to be productive or find the energy to get through everything.
Another use for CBD that you might be more familiar with is to help you sleep. The reason CBD helps people sleep well is that it increases serotonin levels in the body, which is the chemical our bodies produce to help regulate sleep.
Last month we pointed out that many people have been suffering from sleepless nights during lockdown and that even though the restrictions are being eased in the UK, it will take time for the effects of the stress and anxiety we’ve been feeling to dissipate.
In fact, research from King’s College London revealed that 50 per cent of Brits are reporting more disturbed sleep than usual. That means an even greater number of people could benefit from taking CBD oil, or another product containing CBD.
CBD is also known to help reduce the anxiety that people feel, and given that this is often a cause of restlessness at night, it’s little wonder that it works for aiding sleep too.
The We Heart article also named people who suffer from anxiety as another group who can benefit from taking CBD. Similarly, anyone who suffers from low moods could also find that CBD helps to lift their mood and makes them feel better.
The final group of people who could benefit from taking CBD that the publication singled out was those who suffer with pain and inflammation. There is evidence to suggest that CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and is a good painkiller, which means that it can ease symptoms of those who suffer from an injury or health condition that causes inflammation or pain, or both.
CBD isn’t a miracle cure for issues you might be struggling with, but for many people it can provide some relief and make life a bit easier to deal with. Buy high-quality CBD products and start with a low dose, increasing it if you feel it’s necessary and feel comfortable doing so.
