Spring is the season of renewal, a time of awakening. After months of staying indoors to avoid winter’s frigid temperatures and salt-stained sidewalks, it’s time to pack away your winter wardrobe, open your windows, and welcome the changing of the seasons. Now that spring has finally arrived, you’ve likely been spending a lot more time enjoying the beauty of nature as it unfolds.
When you’ve been looking forward to spring activities for months, it’s easy to forget how difficult it can be to relax and unwind after a day of warm weather chores, how stressful it can be to tackle ambitious projects, and how your body can rebel after a day of outdoor fun with your family. If you want to enjoy the season feeling your best, maybe it’s time to consider the many potential benefits of CBD.
Why Add CBD to Your Daily Routine?
While your list of favorite spring activities could be far different than your neighbors, you’ll likely be dealing with many of the same common issues, tight shoulders, aching limbs, stress, and sleeplessness. You may even use some of the same over-the-counter solutions. But maybe not. Current research shows that many of today’s health-conscious consumers are moving away from pharmaceutical options in favor of holistic treatments, natural remedies, and plant-sourced supplements.1,2 While investigating their options, many people are drawn to safe, naturally cultivated hemp-derived CBD.
CBD (cannabidiol) is an active plant element classified as a cannabinoid. While there are two potential sources, hemp-derived CBD does not cause intoxication and has a remarkably low risk of side effects.3 Once crops are harvested, the cannabinoid is extracted from the stalks, stems, and flowers of the plant. That extract is used to make an appealing range of tinctures, softgels, topicals, and more. With so many ways for your body to absorb CBD, it’s easy to take advantage of the cannabinoid’s considerable health and wellness potential.
How Could CBD Help With the Lingering Impact of Spring Activities?
CBD works by interacting with the receptors of the regulatory system responsible for nearly every essential function in your body, your endocannabinoid system (ECS). While individual experiences depend on which essential processes might be restored to balance (homeostasis) through ECS support, adults of all ages are reporting some pretty impressive results.
Base on the feedback of nearly 2000 survey respondents, people are using our hemp-derived CBD products for help with relaxation, sleep, and inflammation, pain, and stiffness after physical activity. An overwhelming majority report favorable results. Knowing how their experiences could translate to the less-than-pleasant reminders of the following spring activities could help you determine how you might benefit.
At the first sign of spring, many people welcome the season by cleaning windows, scrubbing walls, purging closets, and polishing every surface until it glistens. While tackling a longer-than-usual list of chores may not be high on your list of pleasant activities, there’s no denying the satisfaction of a job well done. Research even shows that this time-honored tradition can eliminate stress, lighten your mood, and increase productivity.4
But by the end of the day, all that lifting, scrubbing, bending, and climbing can take its toll. If you’re not willing to let your stiff back, aching arms, or sore legs keep you from enjoying some of spring’s more pleasant pastimes, you might find it helpful to know that most of the CBD users responding to our survey report that CBD helps with pain (84%) and inflammation (88%) after physical activity.
During your spring clean-up, you’ve likely found a few home improvement projects requiring your attention. Minor repairs like stuck windows and loose hinges are easily solved. But home improvement plans involving major renovations, no matter how much you’ll love the results, can be stressful. As tensions rise, so does your risk of developing unpleasant symptoms, including frequent headaches, digestive issues, difficulty concentrating, and trouble sleeping.5
Once stress levels rise, your body remains in a state of high alert until receiving signals that the crisis has passed. Until that happens, and for a while after, many people find it difficult to relax. That’s where CBD fits into the home improvement equation. Of the nearly 2000 CBD users responding to our survey, 89% report that CBD helps calm their mind, and 88% tell us the cannabinoid helps with mild or temporary anxiety.
Tending Your Garden
If you start planning your garden even before the first signs of warm weather, you know there’s no better way to spend the first weeks of spring than tilling, planting, or nurturing your flower beds. Studies even show that gardening is great for your physical and emotional health. Gardening can elevate your mood, reduce stress, and work your entire body.6,7
But like any great workout, gardening can cause a considerable amount of discomfort in your shoulders, knees, and back. Most often, that discomfort is caused by inflammation and microscopic injuries to muscle fibers. Of our survey respondents using CBD for activity-induced discomfort, 9 out of 10 choose CBD over turmeric, a natural supplement often favored by athletes for post-workout recovery.8,9
Outdoor Fun With Your Family
After months indoors, your family is likely looking forward to spending time together outside. Once you’ve spent an afternoon in the park, biking, or playing ball in the yard, you’ll be reminded just how much energy children can have. It can be hard to keep up. Once you hit the pillow, utterly exhausted, you could easily have trouble drifting off to sleep. While frustrating, it’s not unusual. Changes in routine, warmer temperatures, aching muscles, and unresolved stress can certainly make it difficult to get the rest you deserve.10
Hemp-derived CBD could be just the type of natural sleep support you need. According to the results of our 2019 survey, 9 out of 10 CBDistillery™ customers report that CBD helps them sleep better. An equally impressive 89% report that CBD helps calm their mind, 84% report relief after physical activity, and 3 out of 4 prefer CBD over a glass of wine to relax.
