Being a mom is no easy task. Babies, kids, and teens require a lot of attention. Whether it’s morning or night, moms are running around making sure their kids are safe, happy, and fed. Although one of the greatest feelings in the world, it can be stressful and take a toll on the body, inside and out. From dealing with exhaustion to poor diet habits, it’s tough to give themselves the love and attention we deserve while making sure everyone else is taken care of.
Fortunately, moms have a knack for finding the best products on the market that will help them go about their day. They’re also always informed on the latest health and safety trends. Having gained so much experience finding the best products for their children, moms know what to look for, especially when it comes to their skin and diet. And most importantly, they strive for products that are natural and organic.
Regardless of all mom’s duties, our health is extremely important. If we are constantly tired, in pain, and don’t feel like we’re getting the right amount of nutrients we need, it can impact everyone around us. Also, who doesn’t want beautiful, young, vibrant skin that’s hydrated and blemish-free? Everyone can agree that we want to feel beautiful inside and out, so if something is going to help us achieve this, we’re all in!
This is where Cannabinoids come in. Yes, we’re talking about one of the chemicals found in the Cannabis plant. While this plant as a whole is still causing a bit of controversy, CBD oil and hemp oil are more widely accepted since they do not cause any psychoactive effects like medical marijuana or THC. Also, CBD-rich products are formulated using only organic whole-flower cannabis (at least ours are!). This ensures that what you’re using is in the safest form and provides the most superior medicinal benefits. What is CBD exactly?
CBD is one of more than 113 active cannabinoid chemicals in the Cannabis plant but because it’s not psychoactive like THC, when consumed on its own, you will not experience euphoria or intoxication. Instead, it interacts with specific receptors in our cells providing both physical and mental benefits.
So why are moms everywhere starting to use CBD?
1. It helps alleviate pain. Ahhh!
Imagine counting the amount of times you had to carry around a child or pick up a stroller, or try to get as many groceries into the house, or you’re running into daycare and you’re in such a rush that you bump your toe? Bumps or straining your back makes pain a problem, and for moms it can be a constant issue.
Back pain, menstrual pain, migraines, are a part of most women’s lives. And while many of us have run to the cupboard for Ibuprofen or Tylenol, doing so frequently can pose risks to our liver and stomach lining. Also, did you know that a study dating back to 1988, showed that CBD could be 4 times more effective than aspirin? Opting for a more natural alternative like a CBD cream can help alleviate pain allowing us to go on with our day without worrying about nasty side effects.
2. You can achieve beautiful skin without using harsh chemicals.
The amazing thing about CBD is that it has antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and has anti-aging benefits. Many people with dry skin, hair, and other conditions like eczema use CBD products like ours to improve their skin on a daily basis. If you’re looking for a product that also lessens lines and the appearance of dark spots or scars, it could really transform your life. Also, a study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology was able to show that the endocannabinoid system is critical to the life cycle of basal cells (it makes up about 90% of cells in the epidermis).
3. You’ll add important nutrients to your body.
Moms need as much energy as they can get to go about their day. Kids (although full of cuddles and love) can be exhausting. And as they run around, topple down, tantrum in the store, and make a fuss during the night, moms can’t attend to them without a good dose of energy.
What many people don’t know is that CBD Hemp oil are nutrient rich and even provide many essential amino acids for healthy, radiant skin. Integrating products with this oil into your daily regimen will help boost your immune system while giving you an excellent source of fatty acids, Vitamin E, protein, and trace minerals.
3. You can loosen up and relax (no wine necessary).
Not all of us have the means or time to head over to a day spa for a massage, but ALL of us definitely want to relax and unwind. While some mommies opt for a glass or two of wine, drinking every night can be a slippery slope and add a lot of unnecessary calories to our diet.
The great thing is CBD helps you loosen up, without the psychoactive effects. Because CBD acts an antipsychotic, known to reduce the psychoactive, anxious effects, it can be quite the mood-lifter. It does this by stopping enzymes FAAH from breaking down all of the anandamide, enhancing its signalling. Anandamide is a newly discovered neurotransmitter that is literally blissful. That is, “ananda” is the Sanskrit word for bliss. Now isn’t that just amazing!
So if you’re a mommy and have yet to experience CBD for yourself, we recommend you checkout our products. If you’re looking for a better skin-care option you’ll find many options from our Canna Cosmetics line, or if you need help winding down, see our Relax Organics.
In a few months, your beautiful, radiant and glowing skin could be thanking you for introducing CBD into your daily regimen.
