Surviving the Holidays with CBD

The holiday season is a notoriously stressful time of year. While it is filled with smiles, excitement, and cheer for some, for many, it is also filled with stress and anxiety.

What do I get everyone this year?

When will I find the time to do all the shopping I need to do?

How will I ever find the time to clean the house before family and friends come over for our festive holiday gathering?

Oh no, the in-laws are here!

Where are the kids?

Who spiked the punch?

Is that dinner I smell burning?

Where did all the wrapping paper go?

 The list of questions and stress triggers goes on and on like Christmas songs through the entire holiday season. This doesn’t have to be just how it is though, there are things {believe it or not} that may just allow you to enjoy the holiday season and your time with family and friends.

Melt Away the Anxiety With CBD

One of the biggest complaints of the holiday season is stress and anxiety. Studies show that CBD may help reduce stress and anxiety by affecting Paralympic and limbic brain areas and possibly even increasing serotonin levels.

Cannabis and the Holidays Doesn’t Have to Mean Weight Gain

Quite possibly the next big complaint around the holiday season is all the weight gain that comes from consuming holiday goodies. From cookies and fudge to turkeys, hams, and foods of all sorts, the holiday season is filled with extra eating for many.

Some studies are pointing towards CBD being effective in helping with weight loss. CBD was shown to help convert white fat into brown fat in a study conducted by J. W. Yun and H. J. Parray. Brown fat is partially responsible for reducing weight.

Loosen Up Them Joints and Get in the Holiday Groove

Living with inflammation and pain is a surefire way to put a damper on your holiday plans. If it's hard to move then, it's hard to get into the holiday groove. CBD has been shown in many medical studies to reduce inflammation by working as an anti-inflammatory. This also leads to pain reduction helping you to sleep at night and to feel better during the day.

As you can see, CBD may be just the thing you need this holiday season. Luckily, there are a plethora of ways in which you can benefit from this amazing phytocannabinoid. One of our favorites is through CBD oils like the ones offered by New Highs CBD.
