Home for the Holidays: How CBD Can Help Cope with Holiday Stress

Looking forward to the holidays but dreading the stress and anxiety that comes with the season?  Wouldn’t it be amazing to just focus on the fun of reconnecting with family and friends?  This year, let CBD for stress relief help make the holiday season truly joyous!

Anxiety and stress can peak around all of the holiday gatherings. It’s no wonder that your blood pressure goes up, with relatives asking if you’re going to be getting married anytime soon or if a baby might be in your future.  Maybe a difficult journey of planes, trains and Lyfts has taken its physical toll on your body.  If you’re an empty-nester, you might be missing your kiddos who are somewhere else for the holidays.  Looking after your physical well being as well as your mental health should be a priority.  CBD is one way to help maintain your calm through the entire season.

The planning for the holidays can leave your head spinning.  Did you remember to buy a gift for Grandma?  What are you bringing to your bestie’s house for Thanksgiving? And who is allergic to what? Your brain just can’t turn off and is racing with all you have to remember.  Give yourself a break with CBD for stress relief.  The calming effect that CBD has is beneficial for giving yourself a break from the plethora of plans you need to make.  

Travel itself can make you cranky but the arduous long airport lines, packed flights, schlepping bulky luggage and sitting for hours in traffic jams during the busy holiday windows will do a number on you physically.  The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are ideal to help combat the physical manifestations of travel like headaches and stiff muscles, as well as mood swings, which can make a long leg of travel challenging. 

Want to make a good impression on your in-laws during a family dinner or in front of your new boss at the holiday work party?  Maintaining your sobriety will help you stay clear headed and social.  CBD is a valuable ally in helping you maintain your calm at stressful holiday parties and could make it easier from consuming too much alcohol.

Be holiday Insta-ready by using a CBD-infused topical or mixing a few drops of CBD oil with your favorite moisturizer.  CBD is a potent antioxidant that can help fight free radicals that can result in the visible appearance of aging. 

Sleep well, even when you’re napping on an inflatable mattress or unforgiving guest bed, with the power of CBD.  During the holidays, the added stress can make you more prone to insomnia.  CBD is a great way to support healthy sleep without needing to resort to over the counter sleep products. By working with the body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD helps support balance in your entire body, resulting in a more restful night’s sleep.

Citizens Hemp is proud to offer CBD products including Tincture, Cream and even CBD for pets to help our furbabies with the changes that come to their routines over the holidays. Our CBD will never make you feel “high” since CBD does not contain THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis that produces the euphoric effects.
