How Can CBD Help Your Summer Vacation?

It’s summertime, and the living is easy. Right? Summer is the time for family vacations and road trips with your friends. But it isn’t always relaxing fun in the sun. Dragging everyone’s luggage through the airport and sitting next to a baby on the plane; or worse, packing mom, dad, the kids, and the in-laws into the rented van and driving for hours on end?

Not ideal.

But don’t fret yet. Research has shown that CBD could help with some of the less-than-fun aspects of summer traveling.

What is CBD?

What is CBD?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a chemical derived from the hemp plant which may have therapeutic effects for consumers. Unlike marijuana, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that it won’t get you “high”. CBD has some of the benefits often associate with marijuana without the intoxicating effects.

Keep Calm (In Your Carry-On!)

One of the biggest hinderances to travel is the stress and anxiety involved. Breaking your routine is an inherently stressful experience. Then compound that with family members or friends who you aren’t used to spending quite so much time. This is a recipe for a tension headache.

Fear not. Research suggests that CBD is effective in treating anxiety and depression. Some pharmaceuticals used to treat anxiety and depression can make you feel drowsy or irritable and are sometimes highly addictive. CBD has few side effects and is non-addictive.

Added bonus? This year, TSA changed it’s policy to allow you to carry products which contain hemp-derived CBD oil on airplanes!

Pain Relief

You got your plane tickets at an incredible price, but you didn’t take into account the weird, pretzel-like acrobatics you’d need to employ to survive the reduced leg room. Or you fell asleep on the kind woman sitting next to you and woke up with an awful neck kink. Don’t let that ruin the rest of your trip!

Some studies suggest that CBD can act as a great non-narcotic pain reliever and has anti-inflammatory benefits. Don’t let pain get in the way of enjoying your vacation.

Conclusion

Vacation should be about relaxing and spending time with the ones you love, not worrying and being laid up. Why not give CBD a try and take your summers to the next level?
