Just as there is no one set way mother nature heals itself after fires or floods, Danu Apothecary believes there is no one set-in-stone way that an individual may benefit from CBD. Each individual’s body behaves and reacts differently with CBD. Furthermore, each person may receive benefits more from certain applications than others.
Our beloved namesake, Danu, the Celtic goddess of water, life, and healing, encourages you to listen to your body and what natural healing process it prefers best with CBD. Let’s go over just a few of the ways and application styles you may benefit from with Danu Apothecary’s CBD.
This is one of the most, if not the most common, use for CBD. One of the reasons it has become such a popular treatment path is that more and more people are beginning to grow weary of the constant over-prescription of opioids and other pain medications.
CBD provides a natural, holistic option that may serve some people well. There is even anecdotal evidence that CBD may act as a natural anti-inflammatory. Just remember the famous phrase making its rounds across the health world as of late— “Your body has an endocannabinoid system, not an ‘endoVicodin’ system!”
Popular CBD Applications For Relieving Pain
When arthritic pain or muscle aches strike, it’s difficult to wait till an oral CBD dose begins to take effect. One of the fastest-acting CBD applications in relieving localized pain is through a topical salve or CBD sports cream. These both are applied directly to the area of pain and may begin to provide relief within minutes.
Topical solutions such as these often come with a variety of strengths and sizes, depending on your needs. When pain strikes suddenly, our sports cream helps provide quick and soothing relief not only through its quick absorption but also through its cooling menthol.
Potential Reduction in Depression and Anxiety Symptoms
In a world busier, more stressed out, and increasingly difficult to cope with on a day to day basis (COVID-19, we’re looking at you), it’s no surprise that roughly 18% of American adults experience anxiety, according to anxietycentre.com. Additionally, according to adaa.org, about 16 million adults in the U.S. suffer from Major Depressive Disorder.
While Danu Apothecary always recommends you speak with your doctor about anxiety and depression to find a path forward, many individuals across the globe have found symptom relief from nature’s gift of CBD. According to an article on healthline.com, “CBD has also shown antidepressant-like effects in several animal studies.” This was also true of another human study regarding anxiety treatment in the article. These effects are related to CBD’s ability to affec your brain’s serotonin receptors.
Best CBD Applications for Anxiety And Depression Symptoms
When battling depression or anxiety, we understand how difficult it can be to overcome even routine tasks during the day. Rather than having to apply CBD over and over throughout the day, many CBD users have found that taking softgel CBD capsules is a quick and easy way to give your body its natural dose of calming cannabinoids.
Not a fan of the taste of hemp or CBD products? This is the ideal option for individuals who prefer a tasteless dose of cannabidiol (CBD). This simple method is as easy as drinking a glass of your favorite beverage with a softgel and then going about your day.
Other Possible Illnesses That CBD May Help With
While potentially helping with local pain relief and even possibly alleviating depression and anxiety symptoms, CBD research has continued to show there are many illnesses and conditions that this seemingly magical chemical compound may provide help with. In some studies, CBD usage has helped some individuals with chemotherapy-related nausea, a common side-effect of the drug.
Given its anti-inflammatory properties, it may be no surprise to some that CBD may help provide help in reducing acne. While there are many factors that go into regularly occurring acne, generally speaking, CBD as an acne treatment is growing in popularity. Potent CBD salves might just do the trick when other acne treatments have not shown any results.
CBD has many other potential benefits, such as improving heart health and possibly reducing psychotic symptoms of conditions like schizophrenia.
