can you use cbd everyday

According to Healthline, using CBD every day could also be potentially effective in helping people who are struggling with depression, due to “CBD’s ability to act on the brain’s receptors for serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and social behavior.” One study from 2010 found that CBD had “antidepressant-like effects,” on mice.

Although useful in treating cancer, chemotherapy tends to make people feel awful and causes a lot of stomach issues. Fortunately, according to Healthline, CBD may “help reduce chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, which are among the most common chemotherapy-related side effects for those with cancer.”

Your risk for epileptic seizures will decrease if you use CBD every day

According to Healthline, “the stress- and anxiety-reducing properties of CBD are responsible for its ability to help lower blood pressure.” In fact, a study conducted by researchers in the United Kingdom found that just one dose of CBD “[reduced] blood pressure in healthy volunteers.” If you use CBD every day, you could start to see your blood pressure lower, along with a myriad of other health benefits that are too important to pass up.

While there is still, sadly, no known cure for cancer, there are so many scientific advances being made in the field every day. Still, there is an astonishingly high number of cancer patients in the United States alone. According to the American Cancer Society, “there will be an estimated 1.8 million new cancer cases diagnosed and 606,520 cancer deaths in the United States” in 2020 alone. That makes any cancer prevention tactic seriously important. And, as it turns out, using CBD every day may just help reduce your risk for certain cancers.

While you could assume that CBD, like cannabis, would bring on the munchies, that isn’t exactly the case. Of course, everyone responds to CBD differently, but it turns out that using CBD products every day could reduce your weight. As stress can oftentimes lead to weight gain, according to Verywell Mind, and CBD reduces stress, CBD may, in turn, have the potential to aid in weight loss.

This travel-friendly roll-on is packed with CBD and fragrant essential oils, including lavender, bergamot, and chamomile, for an easy de-stress quick fix. The result? “That elusive feeling of wakeful calm,” reads the Sagely Naturals website.

With that said, I’m definitely intrigued enough by the subtle effects to continue taking the oil and to possibly up the dosage to the recommended two full droppers of the 30mL bottle per day. Plus, I take comfort in knowing that it’s an all-natural product that’s responsibly grown on family farms in Colorado. Something that’s safe, legal, requires no prescription, and makes me less anxious, less scatterbrained, and more focused? I’m definitely on board.

My Experience With CBD

I work well under pressure, but being extremely busy at work has almost made me less productive—I’m constantly distracted by email, Slack, and the people around me, to the point where getting my work done becomes difficult. This week, however, I’ve found it easier to put my blinders on, block out all distractions (especially social distractions), and focus on one task at a time. I think this is partly related to the lessened anxiety—I feel more frazzled and off task when my anxiety is running high. It almost feels like a newfound sense of clarity and calm that enables me to focus.

When I first learned about CBD oil, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. My mind immediately turned to weed and the unnerving experiences I’d had with heightened anxiety in college. For me, a person who’s already predisposed to overthinking, marijuana, no matter what the form, would typically put my mind into overdrive and result in a common yet dreaded side effect: Paranoia. But, let’s back up a bit. What even is CBD?

Would I say that CBD oil has fundamentally changed my life? No. But per the Charlotte’s Web website, this is the typical first experience. “Anyone who has ever started a new vitamin or supplement routine knows the short answer to how long it takes to kick in is—’it depends.’ For many newcomers, they’re not sure what to imagine, or some anticipate a huge change right away. For most of us, though, dietary supplements take time.”
