As a Vermont company, we are all too familiar with winter and the particular challenges it can bring. Whether you're planning to spend this winter hitting the slopes or relaxing inside the ski lodge, CBD can help to make your winter a little brighter. Here are five ways CBD can support your body and mind during these colder months.
After a fun day playing in the snow, you may find that you're a little sore. Instead of popping an ibuprofen, why not try a CBD capsule? CBD's anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties will have you back on your snowboard in no time.
CBD may offer a boost to your immune system during cold and flu season. CBD supports the activity of natural killer (NK) cells, a type of white blood cell that can kill cells that are affected by a virus. As for COVID-19, more research is needed but early studies show that it might be a useful way of preventing it in the future.
Enjoying the outdoors this time of year often causes dry, chapped and irritated skin. Lily Hill's CBD Salve to the rescue! In addition to the anti-inflammatory effects of CBD, our salve also contains shea butter which helps to nourish the skin while also protecting against drying.
Seasonal Affective Disorder
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) occurs when cold-weather changes, such as shorter daylight hours, bring on a state of depression. And while research directly investigating the use of CBD to alleviate SAD symptoms hasn’t appeared yet, there’s growing evidence of its potential benefits for helping with sleep and anxiety as part of treatment.
Rest and Relaxation
Is your favorite winter activity curling up by the fire with a good book? If so, we suggest adding a few drops of CBD to a mug of warm, soothing herbal tea. Its stress-busting properties will help you to get the most out of your downtime. Now go snuggle up under a blanket and thank us later!
