Vacations are supposed to be fun. It’s time away from the office and a chance to spend quality time with friends or family. Unfortunately, certain aspects of taking a vacation are stressful, like airport drama, wrangling kids around the resort and the physical discomfort of being stuck in a plane or car. Also unfortunately, we can’t keep a wine bottle on hand at all times to calm the nerves. The perfect solution to staying alert and relaxed on vacation? CBD!
CBD is completely non-psychoactive, so you can take it anytime, anywhere and still be mentally sharp. It does however provide a general sense of calm and eases physical pain like a charm. Because of this, it’s an absolute travel necessity for travel and vacationing.
CBD directly reacts with our cannabinoid receptors, altering physical effects of anxiety or stress. It even reduces activity in the amygdala, the “fight or flight” part of our brain. If you struggle with flight anxiety, your amygdala is screaming at you to run out of the plane while boarding. CBD can help dull this reaction so you can look at the situation logically.
CBD can soothe body and muscle pain from all your fun daytime activities. Plus, a little bit before bed will help you sleep through the night by slowing your thoughts. After a stimulating day, it can be difficult to do that on your own sometimes! You’ll be bright-eyed and pain-free in the morning, ready for another day of fun.
CBD increases blood circulation and reduces inflammation, both of which help your skin hydrated and healthy. Long flights are not only very drying to the skin, but they also contribute to poor circulation, resulting in swollen joints and general discomfort. Along with glowing skin, your flight-fatigued body will also thank you!
It’s not always easy to relax—even when you’re on vacation. Enlist the help of CBD to help you truly enjoy your vacation and make the most of your time spent with loved ones.
