Top 5 Reasons To Make CBD Oil Part of Your New Years Resolution
Posted on January 2, 2019
Ah, the venerable New Year’s Resolution. We’ve all made them in the past. And we’ve all broke them. Well, this year, you have a secret weapon that will help you stick with your personal health and happiness resolutions. We’re talking about CBD oil, of course.
“But how,” you ask, “will CBD oil help me keep my New Year’s resolutions?” We’re telling you how. Here are the Top 5 Reasons to make CBD a big part of your New Year’s Resolution.
Break Bad Habits
Among the most common reasons that people break their New Year’s resolutions is anxiety. A change in habits is often accompanied by an uptick in feelings of anxiety. This comes as a result of depriving your brain of the chemical rewards associated with indulging in bad habits.
The hormones produced by the brain when we engage in habitual behavior are the single most powerful force behind the formation of all habits, good or bad. We’re talking about dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, adrenaline, and so on. When we quit a bad habit cold turkey, we deprive our brain of these substances which in turn results in cravings for the habitual behaviors that cause them to spike.
How can CBD help break this cycle of cravings and habitual behavior? Interestingly, the most common reason that our customers give for using CBD oil on an ongoing basis is to reduce anxiety. Researchers believe that this is a result of CBD’s ability to help modulate the production, uptake, and metabolism of our natural endocannabinoids. These endocannabinoids, such as anandamide, are, in turn, responsible for regulating levels of hormones such as serotonin.
Many researchers believe that CBD can play a substantial role in the kicking of bad habits from overeating to smoking and even breaking the cycle of drug and alcohol addiction. In fact, many alcohol and drug addiction treatment centers are reporting positive results when adding CBD oil to their treatment regimen.
Make Exercise More Enjoyable
A lot of New Year’s resolutions involve getting in more physical activity or working out. One of the most common reasons people fall off the workout wagon is the pain and nausea that come with a good, hard workout.
As it turns out, CBD has been shown in numerous studies to help reduce both pain and nausea. In fact, authors in some studies have claimed that CBD produced better results than over the counter pain relievers such as aspirin or nausea prevention medications such as Dramamine.
Many athletes claim that using CBD oil before a workout gives them more energy and helps them focus while reducing the muscle pain that often follows a workout.
Furthermore, research study data also suggest that CBD oil can help to improve circulation and respiration which can, in turn, help you to get more out of your workout.
Get In a Good Mood
One of the most common motivators for making New Year’s resolutions in the first place is depression. This can be either just some underlying sadness that is caused by your being stuck in your bad habits, or it can be full-blown clinical depression.
We’ve already shown you that CBD is being used to help people break their bad habits. Assuming it does the same for you, you might be able to shake that downer feeling of being stuck in a rut.
But, more importantly, one of the most serious threats to good health is the lethargy that often accompanies clinical depression. Lethargy is the feeling that your get-up-and-go, has gone up and went. Fortunately, another very common reason that our customers give for using CBD oil on an ongoing basis is to improve mood and reduce feelings of lethargy.
Get Less Sick
A common, overarching theme in New Year’s resolutions is simply to improve overall health. “This is the year I’m going to get healthy finally,” is a common motivation for making diet- and fitness-related resolutions.
One of the most important aspects of good health is a healthy immune system. Studies suggest that CBD might help to boost the immune system in areas where it needs to step up its game, as well as to tame immune responses which are indicated in chronic inflammation and autoimmune conditions such digestive ulcers and arthritis.
Just Feel Better
There are a lot of great things about having a body such as love and laughter, but these bags of meat we’re trapped in are also subject to the everyday aches and pains that come with life.
These can be the result of over-use and repetitive use of limbs, weather-related aches and pains, headaches, cramps, and so on. Or they can be the result of more serious conditions such as fibromyalgia or arthritis.
Fortunately, these are all conditions which CBD users claim can be managed with ongoing CBD oil use. And there are plenty of studies to back up those claims.
So, as you can see, CBD oil such as Meds Biotech CBD oils tinctures and CBD capsules, and CBD-infused edibles such as our ever-popular CBD gummy bears can play a central role in helping you to not only keep your New Year’s resolutions but also in getting out of them the results you're looking for.
On behalf of everyone on the team here at Meds Biotech, we wish that 2019 will be your best year ever.
