CBD For Holiday Sur-Thrive-Al

It's supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year. But — for some of us — the holiday season can be more stressful than it is joyous.

Holidays piled on top of work and school stress. Travel. Family reunions. And gifts to gather, festive foods to fix up, and parties to pop into.

To help you survive (and even thrive!) the holiday season, we've put together this guide to CBD support during the holidays.

CBD: Your BFF This Holiday Season

You: Stressed out and overwhelmed.

You + CBD: Calm and collected.

You: Running up a wall instead of ready to deck the halls.

You + CBD: Feeling chill without being headed to snooze-ville.

CBD is a natural product that comes from the cannabis plant — known for its mood-boosting and stress-relieving qualities. If the end of the year is feeling a tad too intense, CBD may just be the thing to help you relax and enjoy this holiday season.

How CBD Can Support You Through The Holidays

Think of CBD as a tool in your holiday health and wellness toolbelt. We think it's pretty useful year-round — consistent use is best after all — but it's especially helpful during times of high stress.

Here's why.

Stress Less

We all know that stress can do a number on our health. Too much stress drains us of energy, stifles our creativity, and leaves us feeling exhausted.

CBD can help you feel calmer and more relaxed during stressful times, allowing you to focus on what matters most: being present with the people you love.

It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of work and life obligations. And the holidays only add to the chaos. CBD is a natural way to help you feel calm and collected, whether that's at home with family or running errands before the big day.

Combat Holiday Blues

The holiday season is a time when we're expected to have a jolly disposition and spread cheer. So, when we don't feel that way, it's even more difficult. But it's true, this time of year can be tough for some.

Whether you've lost a loved one, are dealing with family drama, or feeling extra isolated this time of year — CBD might help soothe your spirits. That’s because CBD has some antidepressant-like properties.(1)

These mood-boosting qualities can offer a natural way to support your mental and emotional self during this time of year.

Sleep Soundly

Research has shown that CBD seems to impact slumber — in a good way! Not only can it help you ease your mind so you can fall asleep easier, it may directly impact your sleep cycle and alleviate symptoms of insomnia and other sleep disorders.(2)

CBD & Holiday Travel

A quick note on travel: While a dose of CBD may help ease the stress of travel — make sure to brush up the CBD laws in your home state and the states (or countries) you'll be traveling to.

Getting in trouble with the TSA is a sure-way to put a damper on the holiday season. (And get you on the Naughty List!)

CBD Self-Care Routines For Holiday Happiness

No need to worry about carving out time for yet another thing on your neverending to-do list. Incorporating CBD into your self-care regimen is easier and quicker than you think.

Here's a swift and simple act of self-care to boost your wellness this holiday season. Give it a try — or use it as a springboard for creating your own personalized ways of tapping into CBD’s goodness. (“Yule” thank us!)

Morning Wellness With CBD Water Solubles

You have enough sweets to consume this holiday season so maybe try the CBD gummies another time. We suggest a highly-bioavailable CBD tincture to get you feeling your best.

After you get up in the morning, take a dose of your favorite CBD water soluble in a tall glass of water, right before having breakfast. (Hint: Adding a CBD regimen to an already existing routine is the easiest way to build a wellness habit!)

Et voilà! A super straightforward morning ritual and a dose of CBD TLC.

Make Holidays A Breeze With CBD

The holidays are a wonderful part of the year, but they can also be a stressful and hectic time. From family gatherings to seasonal celebrations, there are plenty of opportunities for overwhelm.

Be proactive about self-care this holiday season. Be sure to gift yourself some me-time to attend to your personal well-being. And consider a little support from CBD.

If you're looking for a natural alternative to help your mind and body relax without worrying about strange side-effects, CBD might just do the trick.
