CBD Is the Best Wellness Trend of 2017
The time is nigh to get (not) high on CBD.
Anyone familiar with cannabis likely knows that CBD is the next big thing. To be frank, the non-psychoactive cannabinoid present in most strains of the plant, is everywhere. And it's crescive popularity is a result of usage that has been steadily trending up over the last few years.
The medicinal benefits of CBD are seemingly myriad. Consumable products infused with the cannabinoid (which can also be extracted from hemp) is capable of making one super chill, calm, happy, and it can even relieve some of the worst anxiety.
For context, Well + Good announced its coveted wellness trend forecast for 2017. Alongside hyper-functional beverages and inflammation-fighting foods, the health and happiness platform predicts that all things infused with CBD will take over in the next 12 months.
“A growing body of scientific research shows CBD has the power to reduce anxiety and stress, lower inflammation, relax the body and mind, and subtly lift the mood,” Whitney Tingle of Sakara CBD-oil chocolates told Well + Good.
What's more is, unlike other cannabinoids found in cannabis, such as THC (which will get you high) CBD-infused products are perfectly legal in all fifty states.
From Well + Good:
CBD is also showing up in skin-care brands, like CBD For Life and Lord Jones, which make anti-inflammatory creams. Aceso’s cannabinoid drink powders and sprays help reduce anxiety, while Foria Relief’s suppositories soothe menstrual cramps.
