GETTING AS CLOSE TO NATURE AS WE CAN…

I was delighted to receive a gift box of goodies from Naturecan. A company who wants to get as close to nature as we can.

The company was started by a health-focused team with years of experience in nutrition, product development and quality ingredient sourcing. They want to share the oil-natural power of CBD.

From the seed to your door they deliver powerful CBD with quality effectiveness and safety at the heart of everything they do, and as close to nature as they can get it.

They have a great lifestyle blog which answers most health related issues, with regular tips and advice.

This beautiful box arrived wrapped immaculately and when I opened the box the products were neatly wrapped in tissue paper with a leaflet all about the privets and my name personally printed on the front with the words “Barbara discover what Naturecan do”. Well, so far Naturecan do has won my attention hands down.

The leaflet explains the products are grown and extracted from Oregon, USA to meet the highest quality standards and are all completely legal. They utilise whole-plant extraction to filter out unnatural products substances and a unique process maximises CBD concentration with 0% THC guaranteed. Every product is third-party lan tested for certified quality, every time.

They sell a range of CBD oils, capsules, topicals, edibles, non-CBD supplements, and naturally formulated beauty products. On the back of the leaflet it shows you what strength is best for each individual and reminds you to always start with a lower dosage before building up gradually to meet your needs.

The leaflet also has a simple returns form at the back and some FAQ’s. Everything is explained in so much detail.

In my beautiful CBD Tranquility Box, I had a daily moisturiser, lip balm, hand cream, multi-balm, CBD supplement Spearmint Flavour and purify clay mask. I couldn’t wait to start trying some out. All formulated using only plant extracts, active ingredients and broad-spectrum CBD oil, to harness the power of nature to help nourish, repair, and protect – from head to toe.

My box the CBD Tranquility Box is on offer at the moment as you can see from my picture below. I immediately tried out the lip balm as I am sure I am not alone in suffering from such dry lips at the moment, which I am sure has something to do with the masks we are wearing. After just one use my lips felt like normal again. I am now putting this before my lipstick to keep them from drying out.

The hand cream is amazing and smells delicious and the perfect size to keep nearby. The other two products I tried were the moisturiser and the balm which like the other products smells and feels lovely. I am keen to try the spearmint flavoured oil and the clay mask and will write about those products soon.

When I went onto the website I could see I am not alone in endorsing these products. They have five star reviews all round for the products and a number of celebrities also endorsing them. Pop over to their website and see for yourself.

A GUIDE TO CBD PRODUCTS FOR PAIN…

It is often said that CBD can help with chronic pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties. We explore the different types of CBD products that you might consider using for pain.

Why do people use CBD for pain?

Many people have found that CBD helps them to manage their pain, and research also backs up these experiences. A 2008 scientific article looked into using cannabinoids for managing difficult to treat pain and found that they had analgesic properties, meaning they were similar to drugs used to relieve pain.

More recently, a 2020 review article concluded that CBD ‘presents an opportunity for the treatment of intractable chronic pain for which primary treatments are insufficient or not possible’.

What are the different CBD product types?

You might be interested in giving CBD a try for pain, but which product should you use? We’ve put together a brief guide to the CBD product types and how you can use them for pain.

CBD oil

CBD oil is perhaps the most common. If you have not taken CBD before, it is advised that you start with a relatively low dosage. However, you might want to build this up to a stronger dosage if you are using CBD for pain. Most CBD brands offer oils in a variety of strengths, meaning there are options for beginners and more experienced people.

To take CBD oil drops, you simply place the required amount underneath your tongue and hold them there for around 30-90 seconds before swallowing. This allows the CBD oil to diffuse into the blood through the tissues under your tongue. You can also apply CBD oil topically to specific painful areas if you prefer.

CBD capsules

This can be a more appealing option to those who are used to taking other tablets or supplements. CBD capsules contain a measured amount of CBD in each tablet and you simply take it with water as you usually would with other tablets.

They can take longer to take effect because you must digest them first, and some believe the effects aren’t as strong as with CBD oil as they don’t have direct access to your bloodstream. These aren’t always recommended for pain for that reason, but they can be useful to have when you’re on the go or travelling.

CBD topicals

A big area of the CBD market for those who suffer from pain is CBD topicals. These are most commonly in the form of balms or muscle rubs, but can also come as creams or lotions. The idea of these products is to directly target the area that is causing pain, rather than diffusing CBD throughout the whole body.

They are usually combined with other natural and relaxing ingredients which creates a formula great for everyday use. You simply take some of the product on your hands and massage it into any painful areas.

CBD edibles and drinks

A final product type you may want to consider for pain is CBD edibles and drinks. These aren’t necessarily considered to be as strong as CBD oils or topicals, so might need to be combined with another option, but they are a fun and tasty way to get a dose of CBD!

CBD gummies, which are a type of edible, will also come in different strengths much like oils or capsules so make sure you check when you buy.

5 WAYS CBD CAN HELP WITH MUSCLE RECOVERY…

Muscle building swings between the process of exercise and recovery. Where one factor leads to another or instead complete each other, exercise is futile if the muscle does not get the opportunity to recover. Therefore, for any enthusiast who wishes to pack on muscles, giving time to recovery is inevitable. 

Although crucial, most people underestimate the recovery process and don’t levy any extra effort to recover. A common assumption that muscles are bound to recover by themselves is an exaggeration for anybody who is looking for quicker results.

Numerous recovery supplements on the market usually focus on fulfilling nutritional needs. CBD, however, is emerging as a supplement that works on the base root level. It encompasses a well-rounded approach to target the physiological aspect of building rather than just nutrition. Read on to find out interesting ways by which CBD supports your recovery after a workout.

1.   CBD can foster post-workout hormonal balance.

Cannabidiol(CBD) is a fascinating cannabis derivative that is causing quite a stir in the health world. It has many health benefits and yet has no psychoactive effect on the brain. Interestingly, the chemical composition of CBD is similar to cannabinoids produced in our endocannabinoid system. Therefore it can integrate seamlessly with our innate ECS system.

ECS’s various regulatory functions encompass a broad range of activities that ascertain mood, stress, pain, inflammation, appetite, and sleep. Therefore CBD can have a direct effect in upregulating these activities and their subsequent hormonal functions.

Many fitness enthusiasts often witness a severe change in the hormonal functions of their bodies. The oxidative stress from an intense session usually raises the cortisol level. The increased level of these stress hormones inhibits the growth and recovery in the muscles. Some studies signify CBD to help counteract the production of cortisol and support the production of growth hormones such as testosterone. CBD is a natural anti-catabolic that balances stress and anxiety in our system. It aids mental relaxation for recovery to speed up.

2.   CBD can manage inflammation and pain.

During workouts, we break down the old muscles to replace it with a new strong structure. Every time we exercise, reversible damages occur to the tiny muscle fibers in the targeted areas. The body intelligence localizes this area by producing inflammation for the body to start its repair mechanism. While pain is natural to the process, some unchecked inflammation can be a cause of the concern. It not only hinders physical activity but also can cause permanent damage to our joints. Therefore, to keep things in balance, most of the athletes include anti-inflammatory agents in their diets.

Luckily, one can replace common painkillers with CBD edibles to control inflammation. CBD enhances the body’s natural anti-inflammation mechanism by releasing inflammation molecules and IL receptivity. CBD can also alleviate pain whether regular or chronic. Including CBD in your post-workout ensures muscle relaxation for a regulated recovery.

3.   It can aid sleep.

If you are following fitness trends, you would know the importance of sleep in a routine. Hardly you will notice a fitness expert ever underestimating the power of rest in recovery. Some of them would even delay a workout schedule often to fulfill their daily quota of sleep. Science has proven that the majority of healing and recovery happens during sleep hours.

Out of several therapeutic benefits of CBD, it’s potential in aiding sleep is of particular benefit to fitness lovers. CBD can help restore sleep and stabilize patterns of the sleep-wake cycle.  Various anecdotal reports show that CBD can help deep sleep and for longer periods. It acts against sleep inhibitors like eye moments accustomed to dreaming. Therefore it can mitigate the dispersion of energy, which will then naturally direct to muscle repair work.

 

4.   It can help manage digestive issues.

The two essential parameters of good recovery are rest and food. It is a universal fact that to aid muscle growth, one has to feed the body the right nutrition. The macro ratio for growth always focuses on high-protein food sources. Unlike fats and carbs, proteins are difficult to digest. Consistent protein-rich diets can trouble the digestive system to cause low nutrition absorption.

CBD is an excellent aid that can work on your digestive health. It helps eliminate inflammation and bloatedness in the digestive tract to support proper absorption of the food. Since the ECS system governs appetite, its regulatory effect can help regulate meals for optimum muscle recovery and growth. 

5.   Kick DOMS

Many American professional athletes, football players, and golfers testify to the benefits of CBD. The top reason for them to include CBD in their routine is because they believe that CBD minimizes their recovery time. For athletes who have back to back events cannot afford to underperform duke to Delayed Onset of Muscle Soreness. Many of them rely on CBD to overcome such barriers. Studies report that the escalating pain due to DOMs can be subsided with the use of CBD. Hence one can use it effectively to manage the recovery period and rebound quicker.

The Bottom Line

Considering CBD’s benefits, even professional authorities like the US Anti-doping Agency (USADA) permit it. CBD works integratively on several aspects of recovery, including pain management and sleep. It is a natural enhancer that does not lead to dependency or any abuse.
