CBD is a great way to help expand your daily meditation practice.

Our daily lives have changed. Managing a career, family time, personal life, and finding the time for self care can become increasingly difficult. Daily stress seems like a common experience for most people. If the stresses of modern life have become too overwhelming, perhaps consider starting your own meditation practice.
MEDITATION & STRESS
According to the American Psychological Association (APA), the most common sources of stress are the future of the United States, money, work, the current political climate, as well as violence and crime. Stress levels are higher than ever among Americans and as a result many individuals are turning to meditation to combat daily stress.
MEDITATE TO COMBAT STRESS
In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has estimated that:
- Among adults aged 18 and over, increases were seen from 2012 to 2017 in the use of yoga, meditation, and chiropractors during the past 12 months.
- Yoga was the most commonly used complementary health approach among U.S. adults in 2012 (9.5%) and 2017 (14.3%).
- In 2017, women were more likely to use yoga, meditation, and chiropractors in the past 12 months compared with men.
The report from the CDC suggests that 14.2% of American adults surveyed in 2017 said they had practiced meditation at least once in the last year.
HEMP CBD & MEDITATION
Using meditation to focus and be more present to yourself as well as surroundings is a great way to relieve stress. According to an NIH survey, approximately 18 million people have turned to a daily meditation practice to alleviate stress and tune in to their body. It’s no wonder that many people are also adding CBD to their practice to help center and focus their attention on being present. CBD has several properties that reduce stress and create calm in the body, helping to further the practice of meditation. CBD is non-intoxicating and can provide relief from regular pain, but when combined with mindfulness practices like yoga and meditation, the effects are compounded.
