Have you heard of CBD? You know, that really cool alternative way of healing people!
CBD in simple terms is basically compounded from the hemp plant referred to as cannabinoids.
With people seeking more holistic ways of healing, methods like this are becoming more mainstream.
Because of CBD, my life is forever changed for the better. And I’ll explain why.
How to use CBD
CBD can be taken in a number of ways. For those who wonder how to use CBD oil for pain relief, it can be included in lotions, balms patches or applied directly as oil to alleviate the impacted areas. CBD lotions are best used for those wanting to enjoy calming properties and help with skin complexion. CBD balm and patches are best for those that deal with long term pain in a specific area as it is more heavy-duty. Or, if you are wanting a straight-up oil dosage, using in the form of a soft gel or capsule is an easy solution to enact the benefits throughout the body quickly. There is a range of ways in which you can use CBD to alleviate pain. This includes the following methods:
What CBD helped me with
- CBD healed my hurting bones
Seriously! As weird as it sounds, it really did! By applying CBD cream to my hurting bones, I felt an instant sense of relief as and no longer needed to take my pain medication! This is incredible, considering I thought I would be reliant on pain killers for the rest of my life. Applying CBD oil to my legs has become a daily part of my routine and I can not imagine the day where I go without it!
- CBD helped with my muscle pain:
When I work out, I go all out! This means that often I wake up with extremely sore muscles and often some very tender areas. What I started doing was experimenting with putting some CBD cream on my muscles after a workout to see if it made a difference in how sore I felt the next day. Needless to say, I still work out hard, but my muscles move with a lot less tenderness now!
- CBD calmed my anxiety:
Like many people in today’s insane world, I find myself suffering from anxiety. When the world feels overwhelming, I take a CBD pill to calm me down. And it works 100% of the time! Often, I find myself in such a calm state that I forget why I was stressed out in the first place.
- CBD fixed my insomnia:
In addition to anxiety, I can find myself having sleepless thoughts from thoughts constantly spinning through my head. When meditation does not do the trick, I take a bit of CBD to help get my mind focused on the task at hand—that being a good night’s sleep! It works like a charm!
- CBD made my skin look great:
Not a surprise here, but thanks to my stress, I can suffer from acne. I used to take birth control pills to manage, but this messed up my hormones in a really negative way. Now, I instead use CBD to manage my outbreaks. I honestly have never had clearer skin and feel confident knowing I do not have to go days on end with my face looking like I had a case of the chickenpox anymore.
CBD is certainly a game-changer for me and I really hope it is for you too! It has made my life drastically better—with offering a solution to manage my pain, clear my skin, and add a much needed holistic way to improving my own wellness routine. CBD is something I would recommend you to try, but as always, check in with your own doctor as well!
