The Most Wonderful Time of Year
As if 2020 wasn’t already a high anxiety, stressful year, we are in the thick of the holiday season with a tremulous economy and impending shutdowns. Whether you’re spending the holidays close to home or far, mental health is often overlooked or moved down the priority list during this busy and stressful season. CBD seems like a natural fit to help weather the sometimes stressful holiday season.
Note: Although many people swear by CBD and have great results, CBD is still new enough that research clinical trials are ongoing. You should always talk to a doctor if you decide to use CBD for serious concerns, especially if you are taking prescription medications. Pay attention to your own body’s needs when deciding what CBD products to take and how strong they are.
CBD to Support Restful Sleep
Getting enough sleep is definitely a year-round health concern, but during the holiday season the increase of stress can often lead to more difficulties than usually when trying to get some quality rest. Many people have turned to CBD as a natural way to support a healthy sleep cycle without having to turn to over-the-counter sleep aids.
CBD helps support balance in your entire body by interacting with the body’s endocannabinoid system. Achieving homeostasis within the body will potentially better overall functioning including sleep. If your issue is the quality of your nightly shut-eye, than supporting your endocannabinoid system may help you get a good night’s rest.
Chronic sleep issues may be improved by taking CBD on a daily routine, shortly before bed. Try taking one dose right before you get comfortable in bed and see if CBD helps support a good night’s rest for you. If you have more acute sleep issues, such as occasionally having trouble relaxing before bed, then CBD may be useful on an as needed basis. Instead of daily use, take CBD as an aid instead of daily, just when you need it.
Our Suggestion ZuRI-Sleep tincture combines the known natural sleep-aid, melatonin, with high-quality CBD. Melatonin appears to reduce the length of time needed to fall asleep. Together, melatonin and CBD work synergistically to drift you off into a restful, full night of sleep. ZuRI Sleep $41.99
CBD to Manage the Holiday Stress
Though the holidays are often referred to as “the most wonderful time of the year,” it’s often a time of increased stress levels. Many feel the pressure to have the “perfect holiday” and get overwhelmed by increased expenses, gift giving, or family members. These issues can negatively impact our mental health throughout the holiday season.
CBD seems like a natural fit for assisting us in dealing with the increased stress and feelings of anxiety that the holidays can bring. When taking CBD for stress or anxiety, it is important to keep in mind your own body’s needs. This embodies everything from weight, height, age, severity of symptoms, and metabolism. CBD is not a one-size-fits all supplement. It’s important to talk to your doctor, especially if you are planning on taking CBD for more severe anxiety-related concerns or if you are already taking prescription medications for mental health support.
As always, we recommend starting at a lower serving and working your way up, and paying close attention to how your body reacts and adjust dosing accordingly. For more general stress, you might try using CBD regularly at a dose that works for your body and helps ease daily symptoms. For times of acute anxiety, try taking a dose before or during times of high anxiety to see if that gives you relief in the situation.
Don’t be dismayed if your first try doesn’t work right away. Building up to the strength and serving size that’s right for you is trial and error, especially when it comes to mental health.
