You probably already know this, but we’re huge fans of CBD. We love it for so many reasons; it can reduce anxiety and depression, alleviate cancer-related symptoms and even help reduce acne and make your skin look vibrant.
Now, as more medical researchers dive into studying our favorite cannabinoid, we can add another reason to love CBD. Did you know that CBD has mobility benefits? Let’s explore!
As most of us above the age of thirty have experienced firsthand, the body starts slowing down as you get older. Mobility issues are one of the primary concerns as people age.
Declining mobility might not be particularly noticeable at first. But over time, joint stiffness takes over and our muscles also become more susceptible to strain. (I once pulled a muscle from sneezing!) These changes, whether chronic or intermittent, have a chilling effect on our mobility.
Thankfully, CBD can significantly help with these issues.
Most over-the-counter pain killers are called NSAIDS or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They reduce pain by alleviating swelling in the body.
Well guess what? Lab-tested and evaluated CBD products do the same thing! Consult this study published by the National Institutes of Health that details the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD.
By alleviating inflammation in the joints, CBD products enable us to move more freely and easily.
But what if someone is sidelined with more than just the everyday aches and pains of life? What if they have a disease for which there is no cure?
As it turns out, CBD can be a lifeline for those suffering with chronic conditions such as arthritis.
The Arthritis Foundation published an illuminating article about CBD usage. They conducted a survey and found that almost eighty percent of respondents currently use CBD, or have used CBD in the past. Check out their main finding:
“While pain is consistently cited as the most oppressive arthritis symptom in all past surveys, the disease causes many troubling effects. Of those currently using CBD to manage arthritis symptoms, roughly three out of four report it was either effective or very effective in relieving several symptoms.”
Here are some other take-home stats from that article:
-Two-thirds of CBD users reported an improvement in their physical function
-Almost one-third said CBD helped with their morning stiffness
Just to reiterate. Their study shows three-quarters of chronic arthritis sufferers found CBD will improve mobility by relieving symptoms and aiding physical function.
There’s another way that CBD helps with mobility. Growing evidence shows that CBD promotes awakeness. A study published by the NIH even showed that CBD can be a wake-inducing drug.
You might be wondering what that has to do with mobility. Alertness while safely navigating our surroundings is critical.
Think about it, how would you rather drive home after work? Tired and yawning? Or wide-eyed and alert from a tall cup of coffee? I’ll take the latter, please! Now imagine getting that same steadied alertness from a few drops of CBD oil, but without all the jitters!
If you want to improve mobility with CBD but you’re worried about potential interactions, or safety and side effects, don’t be! There are many CBD products that feature all-natural ingredients and are THC free.
Furthermore, we all know mobility drops and our joint health suffers when we gain weight. Weight gain is just a normal part of life but one of the most common reasons that our mobility drops. Despite our intentions to eat healthy food, sometimes creating a healthy diet is easier said than done.
If you’ve been dealing with your weight issues but feel like no matter how much food you eliminate from your diet, you can’t get ahead. CBD can aid your mobility by improving joint function.
And there aren’t any other possible complications from CBD usage. Again, everything in our store is a proprietary blend, THC free and there are no artificial flavors!
There are myriad products on our website that provide generous, long-lasting boosts of CBD to your Endocannabinoid System, providing improved mobility and reducing pain. Here are a few of our most popular:
There you have it. That’s the difference with CBD! Whether you’re struggling with your weight, or were recently diagnosed with a disease, CBD helps us alleviate pain, CBD helps with mobility, CBD allows us to continue exploring our world!
