Do you dream of waking up energised after a full night’s sleep? Or having a productive day and feeling switched on with a focused mind? We all lead busy lives, whether that involves back-to-back conference calls, in this day and age sometimes that also includes running around after the kids, having a clear head and feeling positive and energetic is something we could all do with on a consistent basis especially with remote working being the new normal.If you incorporated CBD into your everyday life, you may see a huge improvement in your mood and overall health, mental health and wellbeing.

A 2019 report released figures that 6 million people in the UK are now regular CBD users. [1] CBD has made a lot of noise over the last few years as an alternative treatment for helping with a multitude of minor ailments to even more acute conditions such as life-threatening epileptic seizures. A THC-based product, another compound found in the cannabis plant associated with the mediation of the immune system has been approved to treat nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy. [2] Therefore improving the quality of lives for many cancer patients.

Although there is proven scientific efficacy for treating epilepsy with medicinal cannabis, evidence is still lacking when supporting the use of cannabis in the treatment of depression or glaucoma for example. [3]

In a recent blog post a real-life CBD consumer documented their response to using CBD oil every day for a week and this was the outcome: “It Made Me Less Anxious and Edgy, I fall asleep faster, I’m more focused at work”. [4]There is strong clinical observational data to support the use of CBD as a therapy for multiple disorders associated with mental health.

In support of this fact, back in November (2019), an announcement was released concerning 20,000 patients in the UK being given medical cannabis over a two-year period for efficacy testing with ailments such as chronic pain, MS, epilepsy, PTSD, Tourette’s, anxiety, addiction in an initiative that aims to create the largest body of evidence on the drug in Europe. [5] Something that is hugely exciting (especially to passionate CBD growers and lovers like us) as it will provide empirical data to support the use of medicinal cannabis in specific cases as a therapy for specific ailments.

Wake up, work out?

We don’t need to bore you with the huge benefits of exercise, some of you avid gym-goers or sports enthusiasts will already know that CBD and exercise work hand in hand for post-recovery in muscle soreness. CBD could potentially let you focus on your workout and therefore work out for longer. Regardless of your personal needs regarding exercise, CBD might be able to help. [6]
