With the dawn of Fall and Winter coming upon us, it’s best to be as fully prepared as you possibly can to tackle any seasonal hardship that comes your way. Because if we’re completely honest, 2020 has seen enough surprises.

We adore the year-round loyalty CBD gives us. And for many, CBD provides additional benefits and support through the colder months. If life becomes a bit tougher to navigate through the slow seasons, don’t fret! We’ve got 6 tips to help you live your best life no matter what elements or ailments you may face.

tip #1
for keeping spirits merry n’ bright.

OK, maybe we’re a little excited for a cheery holiday season, but the fact of the matter is that CBD has an incredible impact on helping you maintain a positive mood.

Cannabidiol (CBD) has been shown to positively influence occasional nervousness and regulate poor mood(s). Additionally, CBD may help to support a decrease in natural vigor and energy that you had throughout the summer months.

We especially treasure our Focus tincture, featuring superfoods Goji + Cacao, along with 25mg of our single-origin CBD. High in mood-boosting antioxidants, tryptophan and essential minerals, one delectable dose of our Focus tincture is all you’ll need to brighten your blues during times when you need it most. Plus, the mild sweet + indulgent flavor of these herbal extracts will bring you into a better state of mind, able to enjoy the slowness of the season.

tip #2
for minimizing crackles n’ pops

Popping is best for corn not stiff, sore joints.

For some of us, one major downside to those colder months is the decrease in joint mobility and an increase in stiffness and pain. Aside from taking extra precautions and a bit more time to get moving on those chilly mornings, CBD can you move through your day with more ease by giving your joints a break from the discomfort.

Make our Pain Cream your go-to product this Fall and Winter. With a potent dose of 850mg CBD, and soothing Menthol + Capsaicin, joint pain and stiffness can be relieved almost immediately. Menthol cools-on-contact, inhibiting the nagging sensation of pain, while Capsaicin temporarily blocks communication between nerves, and enhances circulation and blood flow to the areas where the cream is applied. 

tip #3
to stop the flakes from falling

No, we’re not talking about the snow. We love that stuff.

Frosty weather and lower humidity in the colder months bring rise to the concern for dry, flaking skin. Especially for those of us with sensitive skin types. While there are many deliciously-scented lotions and creams on the market today, many don’t compliment dry or sensitive skin. Instead, all the extra additives and artificial fragrances typical lotions contain could end up causing more harm than good.

Our CBD Body Lotion contains 300mg Broad Spectrum CBD, plus a sensorial, soothing blend of essential oils for soft and hydrated skin. Lavender, Tea Tree, Geranium & Primrose Oils impart a subtle, natural fragrance as they condition, and Blue-Green Algae, Rooibos and Aloe Vera Leaf extracts go deeper than the surface of the skin to reduce the cause of redness and irritation. Dispensed from a travel-friendly container with a leakproof pump, you’ll be able to hydrate skin head-to-toe, wherever you go.

tip #4
for cozy-comfort coffee

As mentioned earlier, rise n’ grind can become a bit of a hassle for some in the latter half of the year. While coffee has it’s benefits, the acidity + high caffeine content may cause jitters and mid-day drowsiness.

If you’ve just gotta have it, we recommend adding a few drops of our Recover tincture, for a metabolic + antioxidant boost, and controlled supply of long-lasting energy with Echinacea root. Green Tea leaf extract adds a trace amount of caffeine to compliment your morning rush, with 25mg of CBD to keep your energy sustained and avoid nervous jitters. 

tip #5
freedom for fido

Did you know that your furry friend may be struggling with the winter blues, too?

If your pup has been experiencing a drastic, seasonal spike/dip in appetite, increase in sleeping hours, or weight gain,

#1. Get him/her checked by a professional veterinarian.
#2. Consider supporting them with our pet-friendly Natural tincture

Two simple ingredients: organic MCT Oil and solvent-free hemp extract can help curve seasonal irritability and moodiness, helping fido feel like their primal, happy-go-lucky self once again.

Keep in mind, dosing for pets is different than it is for us humans. For more information on supporting your dog with CBD Oil + how much is safe to use, refer to our blog post here.

tip #6
tackle tension with turmeric

Many of us have a tough time staying active in the wintertime. Lack of activity and exercise may cause inflammation to build in the body, leading way to a host of wellness concerns.

The solution? Turmeric! (and CBD, of course.)

Our Detox tincture takes the benefits of the spices in your cupboard up to a whole new level.

Curcumin, the pigment-producing compound in turmeric, helps to maintain healthy inflammation levels in the body, with the all-natural support of CBD to enhance your results.

Black Pepper Oil helps your body fully absorb all the goodness from the turmeric, as MCT’s support CBD absorption, and general wellness.

It’s a mystery to all of us what Winter 2020 has in store.

However, what we do know is that we have the support of plant-based remedies and adaptogenic herbs to help us through most of life’s peaks and valleys.

Besides a few physical changes, life can (and should) feel joyous and abundant all-year-round. Supporting yourself, and your furry friends with CBD will help you see and obtain this inner knowing and inner peace with more clarity and sanguinity.
