"Ready" for summer is an understatement. We cannot wait to get back outside, enjoy some sunshine, and hit the pool! But while we're firing up the BBQ and making summer plans, some of us may be having second thoughts. After a year in isolation and much alone time, are we ready for a busy summer?
Are social events seeming a bit "much?" Worried how your body is going to cope during long, warm days? How can you make sure you have a hot girl summer!? CBD.
CBD, or Cannabidiol, is a natural miracle-worker. It's beneficial year-round, but here are some reasons to consider amping up your CBD routine this summer.
What is CBD?
CBD is just one of over 100 cannabinoids derived from the Cannabis sativa plant. The two most well-known Cannabis sativa cannabinoids are CBD (which does not get you high) and tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC (which does.) CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a primary active compound marveled for its many natural benefits.
The human body's endocannabinoid system (ECS) functions to promote biological harmony in response to the body’s environmental changes. Scientific studies have shown that this system is involved in a wide variety of processes like pain, memory, mood, appetite, stress, sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproductive function. Basically, the ECS is a BFD.
CBD helps elevate your body’s natural endocannabinoid levels to regulate your biological response to stressors. In short, it helps create internal stability through homeostasis, balancing your body and mind, reducing inflammation, and even aiding your body's response to pain, stress, and anxiety.
In short, CBD helps you chill out making it an awesome summer add-on. Now that you know how CBD works, here are some reasons to try it out this summer.

Adding a daily dose of CBD can support you with an extra emotional boost. CBD can provide the mental and emotional support you need for a stress-free summer!
For a daily dose, try mixing CBD oil into your morning beverage. Or, make things even easier with a CBD gummy like Daily Vivant or The C-Sweet. They offer 10mg of organic, broad-spectrum nano-emulsified CBD per gummy, plus other vitamins, antioxidants, and more.
