The holiday season is meant to be bright, happy and full of love and laughter. An unfortunate side effect of the holiday season for so many is high stress. If you already suffer from anxiety, depression or stress, the holiday season can be even harder to manage. The holidays can be a recipe for high stress and anxious feelings, but if you take care of yourself, you will be better able to enjoy the time of year with the ones you love.

When you take into account that one of the most popular uses for CBD is anxiety support, it is not a surprise that CBD can be soothing to so many during this trying time of year. CBD may assist with a better night’s sleep, a more balanced feeling, may encourage less anxious feelings, a lowered stress response, and may support a more uplifted mood. CBD truly can support holiday-associated stress and anxiety and bring more light to your holiday season!

Some may be wondering what CBD is and why CBD may potentially work as well as some have experienced? CBD is a plant-derived compound from hemp that does not have intoxicating effects but may interact with your body to provide possible benefits. 

CBD may balance an often out of whack endocannabinoid system that naturally exists within our body and all mammals. The endocannabinoid system may have effects on regulating many body functions, possibly including mood, rest, hormone production, nervous system response, and even immune system responses. The endocannabinoid system may also be involved in maintaining a balanced body and overall wellness. The endocannabinoid system has receptors throughout our body that when properly fed with CBD may result in a balanced body and mind, better able to rise above stress and anxious feelings often associated with the holiday season, so that you can focus on enjoying your time with your loved ones. 

Finally, it is important that you choose a quality CBD product from a company that is focused on pure ingredients, loving cultivation — and that believes in nature’s potential power from this compound. There are several options for introducing CBD to your regimen, whether orally or topically. Using products from a well-informed company who will help you decide what’s best for you and your needs is important. 

Here’s wishing you a holiday season filled with love, light, and laughter!
