National CBD Day: Celebrating the Clever Cannabinoid

Aug 3, 2023 | Autumn Brands News

CBD has become such a game-changer in the wellness industry that August 8 has become National CBD Day! The social acceptance of the popular compound that comes from both hemp and cannabis flower has grown exponentially over recent years as more and more people find physical and mental relief from this non-intoxicating molecule.

The clever cannabinoid works by interacting with neuroreceptors in your endocannabinoid system, which regulates movement, mood, and immune functions, helping you achieve a state of homeostasis or balance. The versatility of CBD as a supplement has captured the interest of medical professionals and wellness enthusiasts alike as people turn to CBD products to ease or improve different health issues, including anxiety, pain, inflammation, insomnia and more, as well as using it to soothe tired muscles from achieving fitness goals.

Here at Autumn Brands, we have several CBD products available that you can use on National CBD Day—and every day! And because they are grown right here on our coastal Santa Barbara farm using sustainable farming techniques, natural sunlight and pesticide-free cultivation, you know these are pure, premium products that you can trust.

As we celebrate National CBD Day at Autumn Brands, here are five reasons why we think CBD is so remarkable.

Natural and Non-Intoxicating

Derived from the hemp plant, CBD is a non-intoxicating compound, meaning it does not cause the “high” typically associated with cannabis. Instead, CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, promoting balance and homeostasis without impairing cognitive function. This makes it an appealing option for individuals seeking natural relief without the psychotropic effects of THC.

Versatile Health and Wellness Benefits

CBD has garnered significant attention for its potential health benefits. Studies have suggested that CBD may offer relief from various conditions, including anxiety, stress, insomnia and chronic pain. Its potential anti-inflammatory properties could also make it an ally in managing conditions like arthritis. Ongoing research explores its potential applications in addressing epilepsy, neurodegenerative diseases, and even certain skin conditions.

Minimal Side Effects

Unlike many pharmaceutical drugs, CBD is generally well-tolerated with minimal side effects (some users may experience mild drowsiness, dry mouth, or changes in appetite.) As with any supplement, you should consult with a healthcare professional before incorporating CBD into your wellness routine, especially if taking other medications.

Promotes Relaxation and Mental Wellbeing

In today’s fast-paced world, stress and anxiety have become prevalent. By interacting with serotonin receptors in the brain, CBD may offer a potential solution by promoting relaxation and supporting mental well-being. Many regular CBD users have reported experiencing reduced anxiety levels and improved moods after incorporating the cannabinoid into their daily routine.

Diverse Consumption Options

CBD is available in a vast array of consumption options, making it a versatile and enjoyable product for users. Whether you prefer the traditional smoking or vaping experience or the more precise and discreet dosing of tinctures, there’s a CBD consumption method to suit everyone.
