The Benefits Of CBD

Founder image

This week I wanted to make a blog post all about CBD! I have been getting so many questions since my last blog about CBD that I wanted to take time to talk about the benefits you can experience! Check out my last blog post about this topic if you want to read more about what it is and how I personally use it! 

Here are the top 6 benefits of using CBD:

1: Alleviates Depression and Anxiety

Several medical researchers have found that CBD can help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression. This is one of the top reasons that people choose to look into CBD as over 300 Million people suffer from depression and anxiety worldwide (according to the WHO). CBD can help you feel calmer, more relaxed, WITHOUT a high. As a more natural way to deal with these disorders, many are choosing to add this into their routine that they have in place already to help them alleviate symptoms. [1]

2: Pain Reduction

CBD has been proven to help reduce everything from physical pain caused by arthritis to neuropathic pain. Those with inflammatory diseases have chosen to add this into their routine as it’s been proven to help reduce pain. For me, I use this combination of CBD to reduce soreness after a workout. It allows me to recover quicker and get a great night's sleep to prepare for the next day ahead. From creams to oils or pills, there are many options to help reduce pain.

3: Fights Insomnia

Say goodbye to sleeping difficulties! I sleep like a BABY when I have CBD before bedtime. One serving of Rejuvia’s CBD Tincture and I wake up feeling refreshed and renewed. A lot of us struggle with getting to sleep. Between work, personal life and everything going on in the world right now I know that it has been even more difficult! Using something like CBD, that has been proven to help sleeping difficulties, can help you wake up with a clear mind ready to be your best self the next day. I know I'm not the only one who can't calm their mind before they fall asleep, and this has been one of the best additions I have found to put the day behind me and relax.



4: Eliminates and Prevents Acne

CBD May help reduce different types of acne! It has the ability to adjust to how the body created sebum, which is a oily substance that the skin makes. CBD also has anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it's the perfect addition to some skin care lines and to your daily rountine. CBD is also helpful with it's antibacterial and antifungal properties which helps reduce infections and dirt from the skin. With many turning to prescriptions or harsh chemicals for the skin, CBD may be the perfect natural alternative to add into your routine.

5: Maintain and Preserves Brain Health

The ultimate brain buddy! CBD works best as a brain power maximizer to minimize the negative effects of other issues such as anxiety and depression as we covered above. According to a recent study, your brain has protein receptors all throughout it that respond to endocannabinoids. When a person ingests cannabis, the cannabinoids from the plant bind to these receptors. It’s similar to a key fitting into a lock. Exactly which receptors are affected, and what parts of the brain get involved, vary for each individual depending on their genetic make-up, drug-taking history, and expectations about the experience. CBD has also been proven to help the slow of memory reducing symptoms & illnesses as well as help signs and symptoms of some neurological conditions such as epilepsy. [2]

6: Achieves Clarity, Not A High

CBD does NOT provide psychoactive effects, it provides the opposite! Cannabanoids are a type of natural compound found in cannabis an hemp. THC is the compound that causes the psychoactive effects from cannabis and all of the products I use do NOT contain THC! There is an incredible amount of science that goes behind why and how CBD makes us feel relaxed, calm and relieves all of the symptoms and more that I have described in this blog... so make sure to continue to do your research and even check out Rejuvia's blog for more information. But in a nut shell, CBD and THC have opposite effects on regional brain functions, which is why it is important to only purchase from trusted brands that have products that contain ONLY CBD. For me I rotate daily between the Rejuvia CBD Tincture and the Rejuvia Golden Vitality: CBD softgels + curcumin. The softgels are “crafted with a pure and synergistic blend of curcumin, phytocannabinoids, terpenes, sterols, flavonoids, antioxidants and fatty acids to fortify your lifestyle.” Not only this, but they help relieve discomfort, promote mental clarity and healthy immunity. Curcumin is the most active compound in Turmeric that has many scientifically proven health benefits such as the potential to prevent heart disease, Alzheimers and cancer. Like Turmeric, it can also help reduce inflammatory reactions inside the body and improve symptoms of diseases such as arthritis and tendonitis. [3]
