1. A Good Night’s Sleep
Sleep is an integral part of a person’s health. A good night’s sleep enables the body to recover and allows you to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. According to the Sleep Foundation, between 10% and 30% of adults struggle with chronic insomnia. Around 70% of young adults that casually use cannabis report that they do so to help them sleep. Cannabis has become a welcomed natural, alternative sleep remedy to pharmaceutical drugs. Certain cannabinoids and terpenes found in cannabis, such as THC, CBN, and Linalool, have been found to work with the body’s circadian rhythm delivering deep, rejuvenating rest. Sleep-focused gummies, tinctures, and wellness products have been a staple of the cannabis industry for years. Allow cannabis to say I love you as your drift into dreamland.
2. Soothing Aches and Pains
Whether you’re aching from a high-impact workout, hunching over a computer screen, or a more chronic issue, relief is a gift that cannabis gives in droves. Consumers are turning to cannabis as a natural remedy to find relief – an alternative to habit-forming opioids and prescription medications. The use of this plant medicine as a tool for pain relief dates back over 5,000 years to societies in Greece, Egypt, and China. Presently, our favorite way to deal with pain is with THC edibles. While they can take 1 to 2 hours to reach full effect, they’re a discreet and effective way of addressing discomfort in the body. Additionally, they’re delicious! Supplements and topical products are also effective delivery methods. Let the anti-inflammatory and soothing properties of Cannabis be your best friend.
3. Fortifying your Immune System
Cannabis, when consumed, is so much more than its ability to support sleep, triage pain, or manage stress. Many formulations, particularly full-spectrum oil extracts, are also packed with vitamins, antioxidants, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are those same fatty acids we celebrate when eating healthy foods like fish, flaxseed, soybeans, and nuts. In the world we live in now, it’s no secret that health is wealth. It’s nice to know that cannabis has our back.
4. Calming Your Nerves / Relaxation
From an overloaded email inbox to a to-do list that seems to get longer by the day, life can often be stressful. Even on a slower week, managing stress is a reality for most of us living in the real world. Cannabis says I love you by providing the tools for daily stress management. Whether you go for non-psychoactive CBD or for a small dose of euphoric THC, there’s a world of options to explore when it comes to cannabis and its ability to combat stress. A 2015 study by the National Library of Medicine discovered that “CBD has also been shown to enhance extinction of contextually conditioned fear responses.” We could all do with a little less fear and anxiety. Let Cannabis do its thing.
5. Elevating Experiences
When it’s time to relax, to party, or to simply seize the day, cannabis can elevate experiences with its euphoric attributes. With every year that goes by, more state and federal bans are lifted across the country, making cannabis a popular recreational tool for good times and good vibes. THC edibles and beverages can help us feel heightened states of bliss without the negative effects of alcohol. Studies have shown that it can do so much more than just temporarily boost moods, it can even help manage mood swings and bring about an overall stability of mood. This aid in the regulation of our brain’s neurotransmitters is the most widely known way… that cannabis says I love you.
