Using CBD for New Year's Resolutions
Sticking to a New Year’s resolution can be difficult. In fact, a recent survey found that while 60% of people make New Year’s resolutions, only 8% of them successfully meet their goals. Here’s how CBD can help you to keep some of the most common New Year’s resolutions.
Resolution: exercise more and lose weight Burning fat and losing weight are some of the most common resolutions.
They can also be some of the most demanding and hardest to keep. CBD can work to fight off inflammation and may even be able to alleviate certain kinds of pain, removing any physical barriers standing between you and your fitness goals. These effects may also make it beneficial for digestive issues such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and leaky gut. Many athletes rely on CBD to help them recover more quickly and get back to training. Don’t let inflammation or pain stand between you and your New Year’s fitness and wellness resolutions.
Resolution: quit smoking and drink less
Resisting familiar temptations can take an incredible amount of willpower and motivation, especially if some degree of addiction is involved. Luckily, CBD has shown potential in the treatment of addictions and the elimination of cravings. It is thought that CBD may work to temporarily rewire the brain’s reward circuit to minimize cravings. Additionally, CBD’s well-documented anti-anxiety effects can help people relax, giving them fewer reasons to turn to these substances in the first place.
Resolution: read more or learn a new skill
Often, staying focused or concentrated on new things can be difficult, especially if they are mentally demanding. CBD’s calming and relaxing effects may help some people achieve greater focus and concentration. If you often find your mind wandering during mental tasks, CBD may be able to calm your racing thoughts and soothe your troubled mind.
Resolution: live life to the fullest
If you’re living with anxiety, pain or other problems, it can be hard to really appreciate life as you should. CBD has been found to work with the body’s inner endocannabinoid system (ECS) to try and keep the body in balance (homeostasis). The ECS is believed to influence numerous basic functions including sleep, appetite, mood, pain and more. CBD’s interactions with the ECS may explain its therapeutic potential, which so many people swear by.
Resolution: travel more
Looking to travel to more places and experience more things this year? Don’t forget your CBD!

If you’re traveling within the U.S., don’t hesitate to pack your trusty CBD in your checked luggage.

Resolution: get organized
CBD’s relaxing and centering effects can help to keep you cool, calm and collected all year long. If you’re seeking to get a better handle on your personal and professional life, then CBD may be a good starting point. CBD can keep you on track by helping you to better manage any stress, pain or anxiety that may come your way.
