We live in a fast-paced world and many of us are being pulled in what feels like every direction. Especially for some people like me who are just trying to ‘make it’. We’re building our career, social life, passion project, savings, and self-care rituals. While there is much good that comes out of these efforts, it sure can be exhausting, and lack of time is a pressing fact.

It’s no wonder a culture of impatience is rapidly growing. As a society, we expect things to be pretty instant: same-day delivery, quick downloads, fast passes, and instant loading of funny cat videos. 

So when it comes to our wellness habits, how many people give up before they see results, due to sheer impatience?

While being persistent can be ever-rewarding, it can also be exhausting. So when it comes to keeping your energy levels and spirits high, it’s normal for the mind to seek some instant gratification, however, there may be a more beneficial way than a triple shot of espresso.

If you’re looking for something to help balance out the pressures placed on you in today’s modern society, you’re going to love CBD. This non-psychoactive cannabinoid, which is found in both hemp and cannabis is praised for many different effects. From helping with anxiety to decreasing inflammation. 

While CBD from hemp isn’t going to get you high, it is going to support you in finding homeostasis. 

All mammals have what’s known as an endocannabinoid system. This system is made up of several receptors that react only to cannabinoids, such as CBD and the more well-known compound, THC. Your endocannabinoid system regulates processes such as pain sensation, mood, and memory, and taking CBD works by bringing awareness to what your body needs in order to find balance.

What makes this oil even more special, many of the impressive benefits are fairly instant. 

Better Quality of Sleep

Taking CBD oil before bed has been known to provide a better quality sleep [1][2], and many feel they wake up feeling more refreshed in the morning, even after the first dose. CBD oil for sleep helps to calm the rushing mind, and guide you into a deep sleep.

Recovery Support

Whether you feel tight and sore from the effects of working out or simply from making it through an intense day. CBD can help your body to feel relaxed and recover. Since CBD has anti-inflammatory effects, it can be beneficial for both acute and chronic pain. Research shows that CBD is able to modulate the immune system and target receptors which mediate pain and sensory perception, inflammation, and body temperature [3].

Increased Focus

After taking CBD oil, you may notice that you’re able to think more clearly. Many of us function on overload and the only thing we can focus on are our thoughts, instead of our work. From promoting a more positive outlook to reducing anxious thoughts, and increasing alertness without jitters. It sounds like benefits that most would enjoy.

CBD comes in many variations and can be taken as a general health booster or as an alternative remedy. CBD products include topical creams and salves, aromatherapy, tinctures, oils, edibles. Would you benefit from these perks in your daily lifestyle?

If this a remedy you’d love to have on hand, explore these products by Calyx, made in Toronto Canada.
