This year saw the launch of thousands of new CBD infused products, and the CBD market is growing by the week. When you think of CBD, you possibly might automatically think about vapes or drops, but there’s many different ways to introduce CBD into your daily routine.
What is CBD?
You might hear a lot about CBD, but what actually is it?! CBD is short for cannabidiol, and it is a chemical compound from the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD is not psychoactive, and is a naturally occurring substance that’s used in products such as oils and edibles to impart a feeling of relaxation and calm.
CBD is said to have multiple health and wellness benefits, and there are many different products you can buy which contains CBD within them. You don’t have to use vapes or drops if you don’t want to, and I’ve got three suggestions of how you can incorporate CBD into your routine.
Honey is known for having many health benefits, but did you know that CBD honey is a thing? I love to eat honey all year round, but particularly at this time of year to try and stave off bacteria and viruses thanks to honey’s antimicrobial properties. If you also like honey, you could consider CBD Honey from Haughton Honey.
Haughton Honey utilises wildflower honey, fresh from the fields and hedgerows across England, and the honey is infused with British-made CBD, and contains terpenes and MCT oil, which have been independently laboratory tested and certified too. It’s 100% natural and you can use it on your toast, in recipes or even mixed into warm milk at night time to give you the benefits of both honey and CBD in one.
Next up: bath bombs. Did you know that you can buy CBD infused bath bombs? I certainly didn’t, but there’s quite a few brands offering CBD bath bombs now. They work the same as any other bath bomb in that they begin to dissolve once placed into your bath water, but they offer more than just a relaxing experience.
It differs from brand to brand, but some research suggests that CBD oil can moisturise and heal the skin, which is why it’s seen a good ingredient to use in bath bombs and bath salts. Plus, a 2014 study found CBD oil can have a positive impact on sebocytes. Sebocytes are cells that create sebum, which can cause blemishes, so that’s another benefit to enjoy!
The last of my ways to introduce CBD into your daily routine, is all about balms. You can get many different CBD balms, but CBD lip balms in particular, are very popular. CBD lip balms are said to be super effective at hydrating and healing the lips, especially if you’re struggling with chapped lips this winter. CBD oil can also help to seal moisture in your lips, preventing them from becoming dry or flaky, as well as working as an antibacterial and an antioxidant.
There are lots of ways to introduce CBD into your daily routine, and hopefully these three suggestions will give you the inspiration to give them a try!
