Have you heard of CBD oil? I have seen it advertised for a couple of our local stores, but had not tried it until now . I was a sent a box of CBD oil products to try and since I am always interested in nutrition and health, I decided to try it out for myself.
CBD interacts with our innate internal system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The ECS is composed of specialized lipids, their receptors, and the enzymes that produce and degrade them. Through direct and indirect actions, endocannabinoids are known to modulate and influence a variety of physiological systems, including appetite, pain, inflammation, thermoregulation, intraocular pressure, sensation, muscle control, energy balance, metabolism, sleep health, stress responses, motivation/reward, mood, and memory.
I didn't realize this before, but hemp is very nutritious providing essential fatty acids that our bodies need, but don't make on their own and must be consumed from food.
As a busy mother of four juggling all of my roles of wife, mom, homemaker, blogger, and graduate student, I tend to get a little stressed. I often toss and turn at night thinking about all of the things on my to-do list. I started trying a little CBD oil in the liquid form using the spray or the dropper before bedtime and thought that it did help me to relax and sleep better. I then tried the capsules during the day for a more relaxed and balanced feeling which I do feel helped me to be more patient with the boys. Having four boys is an awesome gift, but there is a lot of activity, noise and dirt and it's really easy to lose my patience. If any of you are boy moms, I'm sure you can relate.
Finally, I tried the CBD oil balm which smells amazing! It feels so good on my skin. It is relaxing just to put it on and take a moment for myself. I find it very calming.
I love that CV Sciences is supporting agriculture and hemp farming in our home state of Kentucky. Our very own Murray State University is even listed in this brochure. I am excited to see what the future holds for hemp farming in KY!
