A new generation of health and wellness is upon us. Thanks to modern science and technology, we can more fully understand the centuries-old knowledge and practice of incorporating cannabis into our daily lives. It’s not just about the chill-out, the high, and the art of cannabis creation. It’s also about health, wellness, and changed perspectives. The medicinal benefits of cannabis and its essential oils are vast, and additional applications are at the forefront of realization. The scientific community is already studying CBD for its healing properties. It’s also gaining public recognition as a non-psychoactive option to receive the healthful benefits of the cannabis plant.
As the New Year approaches, there are many ways to dedicate 2019 to your health, assisted by cannabis. Incorporating CBD into your daily life can be as easy as trying new skincare products and implementing new supplements into your existing health and wellness plan.
Swap Out Your Eye + Face Creams for CBD-Enriched Skincare Products
The beauty products market is saturated with anti-aging, anti-blemish, and anti-oxidant products, meaning we can choose our ingredients and forms of application. Adding CBD to your skincare regimen is easy and beneficial. What is newly emerging and exciting is adding CBD to great cosmetics formulations. Skincare products that contain CBD oil offer additional measures of skin health support, healing, and protection, and even help increase the efficacy of other product ingredients.

Try a Tincture
Tinctures are cannabidiols blended with carriers such as fractionated coconut oil and are easily applicable to daily life. They can be used directly on the skin, incorporated into recipes and dropped into teas and drinks. Keeping a bottle in your kitchen or bathroom requires minimal space, and most importantly, they may deliver relief.
A daily CBD topical application can help with skin issues like inflammation, pain, disorders such as eczema and psoriasis, and even acne. Adding a few drops to your existing lotions and creams is an easy way to enhance your current routine. Using a tincture to spot-treat acne and minor abrasions help the healing process and help prevent acne flare-ups.
Daily ingestion can help with a myriad of issues, from chronic inflammation and its symptoms to mental wellbeing. So, whether you infuse butter and use it in your morning eggs or add a few drops to your mid-day smoothie recipe, you’ll easily receive a multitude of benefits.
Tinctures to Try:
Improve Your Sleep with CBD
Replace those over-the-counter and prescription sleep medicines with CBD oil. While sleeping pills may be effective in the short term, they can come with disturbing and long-lasting side effects, including nervous system suppression and possible breathing impediments. Avoid tolerance buildup and the side effects by helping your body reach sleep, naturally.
CBD may reduce anxiety which is helpful in reducing sleeping difficulties and improving sleep quality. The cannabinoid is also believed to help improve overall sleep cycles. CBD can reduce insomnia as well, helping to alleviate the problematic cycle of chronic pain, anxiety, restlessness, and sleeplessness.
CBD capsules are a great way to help your endocannabinoid system reach homeostasis (the body’s systemic balance) while avoiding potentially energy-inducing properties of oils commonly found in tinctures. Keep a child-proof bottle (if kids are around) by your bed or in your cabinet for easy access and a good night’s rest.
Capsules to Try:
Replace Your Aspirin with CBD
CBD is believed to work on pain in two ways: The cannabinoid may interrupt the nerve pathways that send signals of pain between the brain and the body. Further, a 2016 study suggested that a lack of endocannabinoids may be at the root of chronic pain syndromes such as migraines and fibromyalgia. Taking CBD may correct the endocannabinoid deficiency, alleviating chronic pain and providing a whole-body approach to preventing and relieving pain symptoms.
