Can CBD Gummies help with pain relief?

cbd gummies

So, can CBD Gummies relieve pain?

CBD gummies have been around for several years, but only recently have they become as refined and palatable after much research. They are an enjoyable way of consuming CBD and are easy to take with you anywhere.

Cannabidiol is credited with many health-giving properties, but significant research is still ongoing. Any company selling CBD Gummies and other edibles must be recognised by the Food Standards Agency in the UK, before 31st March 2021.

Joint and muscle pain in particular, can be very debilitating. Not only does it affect your body, but it can have a mental affect as well, causing anxiety or depression when your body just isn’t working the same as before. The longer it continues, the worse your mood becomes. It will also affect your sleep.

Suffering from mild to chronic pain?

Calm Recovery CBD Gummies will certainly help, but it does depend on the source and cause of the pain. You will obtain relief certainly, but the degree of such relief varies from person to person and also the root cause of the problem. It is best to check with your medical professional on the feasibility of eating these fruit-flavoured sweets to gain maximum effect.

CBD definitely provides pain relief, but other issues should be considered, such as women who are pregnant and/or breastfeeding. Caution should also be applied for children and young adults (prior to the age of 18). Having said that, many GP’s are suggesting CBD as a pain relief agent, that contains no chemicals or psychoactive substances. If you are already on medication for other illnesses, do check with your GP as to suitability – CBD may effect the accuracy of other medicines.

So, how does it give pain relief?

Without being too technical, CBD gummies can be taken every 4-6 hours to help relieve pain, but here at Calm Recovery, we recommend 2 per day as a starting point. Popping a CBD gummie into your mouth when you first feel pain is the best way to achieve relief, rather than wait until the pain gets too bad.

Your body contains a substance called ‘anandanamide’, which is a naturally occurring endocannabinoid in molecule form. Experts aren’t completely sure how CBD interacts with the ECS (Endocannabinoid System), but a great deal of scientists have a strong impression that it stops EC’s breaking down, which in turn means they have much more effect on the body, such as in pain relief. There are two schools of thought, with other top researchers believing that CBD binds with a yet undiscovered receptor in the body, to ease pain. Only further research will ascertain exactly how the pain process is improved.

Andanamide is a regulator of pain, neurological disorders, sleep patterns and even appetite problems. In terms of pain relief, the CBD interacts with anandanamide to inhibit absorption, which in turn increases blood levels. This action will trigger pain relief in most individuals.

All Calm Recovery CBD products can be used to treat a wide variety of health problems. Do take advice from your GP or medical professional, who will advise you if there is any reason you should not include CBD Gummies as pain relief.

More research is currently being conducted as to whether CBD could help other aspects of pain, such as swelling, inflammation and soreness. The properties of CBD, whether gummies or other products are widespread and more is being discovered every day. Studies are being carried out by large organisations such as Arthritis.org, as to the efficacy of consuming CBD oil, gummies and other related CBD edibles.

Calm Recovery ensure that only the finest ingredients are used in our CBD Gummies and that every batch is tested before market. We constantly strive for customer satisfaction in all ways – high grade sourced product, flavour and health benefits.

Why choose Calm Recovery?

As previously mentioned, with all of our CBD products our sourcing and distillation methods are second to none.

Our gummies are probably the best start for anyone trying CBD for the first time. They are sweet and tasty, fun to eat and easy to carry around or place in a ‘sweetie’ drawer. With their delightful fruity flavour, everyone can enjoy them – not only that, they come in cute ‘bear shapes’, just like the old gummie bears from US sweet manufacturers many years ago. Do keep them out of childrens’ reach though, as they will definitely want to try them!

Why Should You Buy CBD Coffee Syrup From Calm Recovery?

cbd coffee syrup

CBD Syrup could easily become the 8th Wonder of the World (without insulting the Pyramids or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon). Calm Recovery’s CBD Coffee Syrup is safe, sweet and super delicious. Another ‘S’ for you – it really helps you sleep, along with the other benefits of our CBD products in the UK.

CBD Syrup has had a huge ascent in the UK over the last couple of years, and continues to rise in popularity. But not all CBD Syrups work the same way, and certainly don’t have the same composition or flavour as our premium product.

Researched and worked on over a period of time, this has guaranteed that our product meets every possible criteria. If you buy CBD syrup from Calm Recovery, you are assured of the best and most satisfying addition for your tastebuds, your body and mind and a bonus of three different flavours!

How does CBD Syrup work?

The answer is, the same as all of our other CBD products, it’s just sweeter (other than our delicious cookies)! Our full spectrum CBD offerings will not fail to please and help in any of your common health problems, such as anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, muscular skeletal pain, inflammation – the list is endless, but we don’t make claims as to its effectiveness in terms of serious illnesses. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating – or the drinking in this case.

Delicious dishes with CBD Syrup

How you take CBD Coffee Syrup is up to you. Some people will simply take a teaspoon a few times a day, and others will put it into drinks, desserts and other dishes when you want that hint of sweetness. You can even make chocolate truffles with it, trust us! What better birthday or Christmas present could there be than a box of coffee/chocolate fondants, lovingly prepared by you. You could also make a delicious sponge cake or muffins to have with your coffee or hot chocolate, or chocolate and coffee mousse for dessert. Get creative!

As our syrup comes in three different flavours – Brown Sugar Cinnamon, Hazelnut and Vanilla, they would all make an amazing box of chocolates or any sweet delight that takes your fancy.

Why choose Calm Recovery CBD Coffee Syrup?

Most people will immediately think that syrup will contain ‘lots of sugar’. Not so, as our syrup is made with Sucralose, a sugar substitute, considered to be one of the safest on the sweetener market. Furthermore, those calorie counting will be pleased to know that our syrup is non-calorific, yet another benefit to your health and wellbeing.

The CBD that we use is water soluble which makes it extremely bioavailable. Bioavailability means that from mouth to intestines and into the circulatory system is fast and efficient, ensuring that the calming effects of the product happens quickly and the results are longer lasting.

Most importantly, our syrup really does taste good, and takes away the guilt of putting two teaspoons of refined sugar in your coffee or other drinks! We have even heard of customers drizzling some over an ice cream, or their morning yoghurt with fruit!

What is the recommended dosage of CBD Syrup?

Everyone’s body reacts differently, so to a certain extent you have to find your own level. It also depends on your symptoms or illnesses, and other factors such as weight and frame. We would recommend that you start with a low dosage and see how you react. You can then increase, or decrease, until you reach a level that you are comfortable with, and that works for you. It’s really no different to taking any medication or supplements, it’s the same principle – let it work for you. We recommend 3-5mg per serving as a starting point.

If you are on any form of medication already, or have a pre-existing condition that your GP is currently treating, there is no reason not to talk to him/her before trying Calm Recovery CBD Syrup. Most doctors are realistic enough to know that research shows that CBD products can work effectively. The average fit and healthy person is normally in the 10-50mg dosage category per day, but do heed our advice on starting slowly and building up to what suits you.

Please also remember that there are no harmful chemicals or synthetic drugs in Calm Recovery CBD products, unlike pharmaceuticals used to treat medical conditions.

Whilst our products are made using high grade CBD, do store in a cool, dark and dry place to prevent any degradation.

Caffeine Jitters? How CBD Coffee can ease your problems

friends having coffee

It’s common knowledge that excess caffeine can cause anxiety, or as it is more commonly known ‘the jitters’. The more, full blast coffee you drink, the more you will exacerbate your ‘shakes’ and anxiety.

If you love the taste of coffee, and can’t bear the thought of being without it, never fear, help is at hand with Calm Recovery CBD coffee, which contains full spectrum and organic hemp extract, and that really has a smooth and luxurious taste.

At Calm Recovery you can be assured of the freshest coffee on the market. Our coffee beans may be picked and packed overseas, but they are roasted and prepared to ship to you right here in the UK.  We ensure that our beans are sourced from prime bean suppliers such as Brazil and Sumatra, so what ends up in your cup will be the finest. We believe in Fair Trade suppliers, so you will know that producers overseas are getting their correct payment for the goods that they produce.

Why is Calm Recovery better for you?

Caffeine is the unwelcome guest in a good cup of coffee. When standard coffee is consumed over a period, it can increase anxiety and affect your wellbeing. If drunk in excess, it can certainly make you agitated, nervous, anxious and above all change your demeanour.

After copious amounts of testing, the WHO (World Health Organisation) has concluded that CBD in coffee, or other goods, causes no harm to the human body – in fact, the contrary, as it has no psychoactive effects whatsoever. It is important to remember that it contains no THC, the property that causes a ‘high’ in cannabis smokers. In fact, it is completely the opposite – it negates the nasty effects and promotes the beneficial effects such as an aura of calm and relaxation. Surveys report that it also eases aches and pains, and accelerates recovery, even after a hard session in the gym.

There is no need stop there. Try Calm Recovery’s CBD Hot Chocolate – again it’s smooth and velvety with a delicious chocolatey taste. Even better, drink it at bedtime for a wonderful nights’ sleep! All we advise is that you do not exceed 6 cups per day of either, you may be so relaxed at work (which is where people do not realise just how many coffees they have in one day) that you may fall asleep!

How does Calm Recovery sell their CBD Drinks?

Customers can buy individual packages of CBD ground coffee, but there has been a large increase for us in sales to coffee shops, gyms and other outlets who have realised that CBD coffee and chocolate is here to stay. Coffee shops are springing up all over the country due to the popularity of our products, so supply and demand is increasing daily. Remember, it is totally legal and above all, more beneficial than standard coffee. Even the large coffee manufacturers are seriously considering jumping on the CBD wagon to increase their sales.

If you are an outlet such as a coffee shop or gym, consider buying CBD Coffee Wholesale in the UK, direct from us. We provide varying tastes from CBD Coffee Light and Bright, to CBD Coffee Dark Knight – not forgetting our tasty hot chocolate.

All forms of CBD coffee grind can be supplied by us to suit whatever method you use to make your drink, whether Cafetiere, Cold Brew, Aeropress, Stove Top, Espresso or Drip (V6). Calm Recovery also provide different pack sizes and varying content of CBD in each product. It’s the best of all worlds to be able to choose what you want, when you want.

At Calm Recovery, we don’t make medical claims, we just supply the facts and the feedback from our customers. In this hamster wheel of a life that we all lead, CBD Coffee can be an easy solution to reduces those nerves and anxiety and stopping ‘the jitters’.

Make your CBD Coffee economical every day

Obviously, the cost of CBD coffee will be more expensive on the High Street in your local coffee shop outlet. If you buy for your home, think about buying yourself an insulated coffee cup. You can brew up your own coffee in the morning to have with breakfast, and then take one to work with you. Most insulated cups/flasks stay hot for around 12 hours, so you will still have the perfect coffee for that mid-morning break.

How Could CBD Cookies Change My Life?

cbd cookies

At Calm Recovery, we are continually striving to produce the best products for you, that have a multitude of health benefits and taste so good! That’s why we have created our very own CBD Cookies.

There is nothing better than a good cup of CBD coffee – or is there? Cookies and coffee are natural partners, and a cookie can bring a real touch of decadence to a well-earned break in a busy day. With this in mind, we have recently introduced our range of Vegan-Friendly CBD Cookies to satisfy your taste buds and provide you with as many health-giving properties as possible.

Our calming CBD Cookies are both vegan and vegetarian-friendly, so everyone in the family can enjoy this delicious addition to that morning or afternoon break. That’s assuming that you do not want to eat them all yourself!  Alternatively, enjoy them with hot milk or our Vegan Hot Chocolate to relax you and prepare you for a great nights’ sleep. They even go really well with a cup of tea and a touch of our zero-calorie CBD Syrup! There really is nothing that cannot be improved with the addition of a delicious baked treat.

CBD Gummies

There are not that many CBD edibles on the market, and certainly nothing to match ours, so we are told. Some are really not that good for you (CBD gummies spring to mind) and many CBD edibles really do not have the right level of full-spectrum hemp extract, so many people aren’t receiving the full benefits. You can rest assured that our recipes have been tried and tested many times to develop flavour and make this addition to your diet as satisfying, yummy and healthy as possible. The fact that they’ll also take the edge off an increasingly anxious world is an additional benefit.

Buying CBD Cookies from us could not be simpler. They are freshly baked to order, ensuring that both texture and flavour are as on point as possible when you receive them. Coming in handy boxes of 4, 6 or 8, you won’t end up with half-eaten packets that have gone soggy in the cupboard – they are just too good to waste! Try a box of 4 if you are not sure you will like them – but we bet you will!

Our three flavours have been carefully crafted with the finest ingredients and top-quality CBD extract, imparting wonderful flavours to suit any palate. Any good cookie in the world should have elements of crispness and ‘gooiness’ and ours have both of those important qualities. Made from wheat flour, which is heart healthy, protein and magnesium rich, and full of many other vitamins and minerals. It’s hard to believe that something that tastes so appealing can be healthy too, but that’s the dynamic combination that we build our business around.

There are a few cookie flavours on the market, but it’s unusual to find CBD White Chocolate and Raspberry Cookies, although there are some made in both Europe and the USA. But will they be as fresh and delicious as ours? – we think not. If you are a chocolate lover, you can also try our Triple Chocolate CBD Cookies, or for that slightly salty and sweet combination, the Salted Caramel. Every one of these is baked to perfection. Dip or dunk into your CBD Coffee or Hot Chocolate, the choice is yours!

Our CBD Cookies do contain sugar, we can’t deny that. To coin a popular phrase, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. Rest assured, though; our recipe uses light brown sugar. Light brown sugar is slightly lower in calories than refined white sugar and does contain more minerals. What is also encouraging is the fact that recent dental surveys show that CBD Oil based products can actually be beneficial to teeth and gums as well as post dental pain and inflammation. How many other brands can claim that a cookie a day keeps the dentist away?

Speaking of dentists, some oral healthcare professionals have conducted research into this area. They believe that the calming effect of CBD can ease dental anxiety and contribute to overall oral health. 50% of UK adults have ‘dentaphobia’ with around a quarter of those demonstrating acute anxiety – not a nice place to be.

We are not saying that CBD cookies are a substitute for regular teeth cleaning and hygiene, but even though there is a sugar content, our CBD Cookies have positive benefits as well. However, it is still wise to limit sugar intake for overall bodily health. The good news is that our cookies are so appealing that you’ll quickly break your craving for any other kind of sweet baked goods.

If you’re interested in learning more about our CBD cookies, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’ll answer any questions you may have, ensuring that you find the perfect product for your palate and requirements.

How buying white label CBD can grow your business

cbd oil white label tinctures

So, you want to grow your business? 

Don’t we all! 

But how do you go ahead and actually do that? What processes can you put in place to make your life easier and your pockets fatter?

Well that’s where this article comes in handy. We’ll be showing you the ropes when it comes to white label goods and how they can help to catapult your business’ growth to heights you never thought possible.

What does white label mean?

In a nutshell, white label means that a company purchases a branded product without the branding.

Hence the name ‘white label’ – it is their product but it is a blank canvas for you to paint with your own creative flair and make your own.

You can sell the product as your own and you can’t be sued for doing so, as you are purchasing directly from the supplier under a white label agreement.

It is one of the industry’s best kept secrets and is a surefire way to accelerate your company’s growth since the groundwork is already done for you.

confused man

Can it get complicated?

It probably seems like there are a lot of potential downsides to white labelling doesn’t there?

Who does the branding? Who registers the company? Who does the marketing? Who does this? Who does that? 

So many questions and so many moving parts.

You see, if you go with the wrong company, you may be left having to juggle all of these by yourself which is what puts so many people off going down this route.

The thought of having to do everything from scratch is every business owner’s worst nightmare. Time they could spend blazing a trail for the company is halted by having to micromanage every step of the process.

If you do enough research and shopping round though, you’ll find companies who are willing to do all of this for you.

It is usually the very best businesses who are willing to offer such a service, so you’ll have to be quick to make sure you get a spot on their client list! But if you can get in with a company that takes care of the entire process, you can wave goodbye to endless hours toiling away trying to get your project off the ground.

You can also say hello to a far leaner start up process, less overheads, far more profit and customer satisfaction. It almost seems like a business cheat code, doesn’t it?

white label cbd supplements

What products do well with white labelling?

You can get basically any product on a white label deal, but ones that tend to do extremely well are protein powder, coffee, skincare, e-liquid and sweets/gummies.

All of these products can be bought in small batches or in mass quantities and can be scaled infinitely whilst making the packaging unique to your brand. 

Here at Calm Recovery, we actually offer these products and many, many more in our range for companies looking to get in on the white label cash cow.

What’s so special about our range of white label offerings though is that – you guessed it – they are ALL infused with CBD.

Yeah that’s right, we offer CBD infused coffee (but you already knew that), CBD skincare products, CBD infused gummies, CBD protein powders and just about everything else. We also offer straight up CBD – be it in oil, capsules or water-soluble powders and liquids.

If you want to break into one of the most lucrative and growing markets, trying CBD white labelling might be one of the best choices you make for the future of your business.

Where to find the best white label CBD service

Where else but right here at Calm Recovery? We have one of the most comprehensive white label services in the UK, if not the world.

Not only can we cater to small batch and larger orders, we offer in-house graphic design for your packaging, social media marketing services AND we also provide website design for new companies who are just starting out.

And of course, all of our products are made to the absolute highest quality right here in the UK.

What more could you possibly want from a white label service? All the legwork is taken away so all you need to concentrate on is cashing those cheques!

The Best CBD Infused Products On The Market

calm recovery logo

As CBD infused products become more and more popular every year it allows for more interesting products to be brought to market. CBD products have only really started getting popular in the last few years, and so there is nigh on unlimited room for the products to grow within the current market.

The fact that the market is expanding exponentially, alongside product ranges, the CBD sector has become something of a double edged sword. On one hand, the opportunity is growing so businesses can jump on the growing trend of CBD-infused products and make a business work. On the other hand, the competition grows and businesses have to compete for customers which can lead to some businesses going bust.

We like to look at the latter as a positive because businesses will have to create higher quality products at a fait price to stay competitive, which is exactly what we do.

Now that we know there is a vast expanding product range of CBD infused products out there we need to have a look in detail what they are about. In this blog post we would like to take you through which CBD products we think are the best the market.

Skincare 

The skincare and beauty market is one of the biggest markets in the world with figures set to soar to $24 billion in the UK alone by 2024. Looking at these types of numbers, it’s no surprise that this industry has infiltrated the CBD monolith.

But why would a skincare company bring out a CBD-infused product?

Well apart from the obvious rise in popularity as we discussed earlier, CBD has proven skincare qualities which make it a perfect fit for the industry. The two most common problems that the skincare industry aims to tackle are ageing and acne. Well to no surprise (to us anyway) the CBD train keeps on chugging – it helps tackle both of these issues!

Studies have shown CBD to reduce the signs of acne. This is because acne is an inflammatory condition and CBD has anti-inflammatory qualities. Simple really. In terms of anti-ageing, CBD is known to be rich in anti-oxidants which help lessen the signs of ageing in the skin. We predict that CBD infused skincare products are going to be one of the leading markets within the CBD niche.

Edibles

Okay so you have heard of edibles before, right?

Maybe you have associated them with something that will get you high because you think it contains marijuana. Well this isn’t the case for CBD edibles as there is no THC in CBD. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psycho active and is very much legal, making it safe for consumption.

There are a wide variety of CBD edibles available on the market and can be purchased online or in stores, these include:

  • Cookies – Soon to be added to our website, available in three different flavours; salted caramel, triple chocolate and white chocolate & raspberry.
  • Gummies – These can come in the shape of bears, fruits, rings, basically anything you can think of. They’re just like any regular gummies on the market.
  • Protein bars – Very useful for when you train in the gym and want that protein and CBD hit.
  • Dried fruit – A product that is becoming more popular with lots of different options to try out.

Edibles can provide longer lasting effects in comparison to other CBD products as they are broken down slowly in the digestive system. They are also easy to create yourself at home if you want to try it yourself and save money.

CBD drinks

CBD drinks are becoming increasingly popular as different brands start to create their own CBD-infused drinks. Doing this has allowed for the CBD drinks market to develop and become very competitive with a lot of new companies sprouting up.

CBD oil works well with drinks that are foamy such as fizzy drinks or beer, whereas CBD tinctures work better with non fizzy drinks such as cocktails and juice. In reality though both of them can work with beverages either way.  Other CBD beverages include:

  • Teas
  • Wines
  • Energy drinks
  • Water
  • Coconut water
  • Kombucha

Of course we wouldn’t do a blog post of the best CBD products on the market without mentioning CBD coffee, and that’s not only because we sell it, but because we genuinely think it is an awesome CBD product.

Our coffee comes infused with CBD or you can buy our CBD coffee syrup and use that to get your daily dose of CBD with your daily cup of Joe. We also have a Vegan hot chocolate range which could be used as an alternative for any of you out there who aren’t huge coffee lovers.

Can CBD make you happier?

smiley yellow badge on wood background

Lets find out…

CBD is the new health poster child. Except this is one that’s here to stay. CBD has seen a massive surge in the market recently with its value expected to reach £1 billion by 2025.

But why is this?

It has been proven to not only benefit a healthy lifestyle and contribute to overall wellbeing in a plethora of ways, but a large number of people have reported feeling lighter, happier and more open to the joys of day to day life – all thanks to CBD.

These amazing benefits have been linked to the effect that CBD has on serotonin receptors.

Studies have shown that, with consistent daily use, individuals have been able to effectively manage stress levels and sleep better – two of the main catalysts of steady mental wellbeing.

Pain-relief and anti-inflammatory properties are just a few of the other miracles that CBD is capable of too. It’s no mystery that combatting these problems helps us to feel more content, sprightly and happier in general.

According to research undertaken in 2014, CBD can also be used as an alternative treatment for depression. An important factor in managing depression is to maintain healthy serotonin levels. Healthy serotonin can impact a number of functions in the body as well as inducing feelings of happiness and well-being when at normal levels.

While managing mood is something that we all know we should be doing, often it seems to have dropped to the bottom of our list.

Let’s get stuck into some ways that CBD can reverse that.

happy girls holding balloons

CBD and a Calmer Mind

Day to day life is filled with stresses, woes and dramas. We all have them, don’t worry.

Managing mental health should be one of our top priorities but sometimes we get too bogged down with the more practical and sometimes boring things in life. So why not try something that we can incorporate into our daily routines and habits?

It really is as simple as that.

CBD and a Healthy Lifestyle

CBD is the perfect companion for healthy lifestyle changes such as getting enough rest, exercise and mental stimulation. We can all make our lives change for the better.

Nowadays it’s not uncommon for CBD to be used in all manner of ways, even massage therapies! And with a wide range of CBD infused beverages and edibles becoming readily available, it has become even easier to make small changes every day for the betterment of our health.

CBD has been found to improve overall mood and many people are using it as a natural alternative to over-prescribed anti-depressants, which are often full to brim with chemicals we can’t even pronounce. Not to mention their appalling relapse rates, side effects and costs to the patient.

Statistics have shown that individuals supplementing with CBD daily have reported an elevated feeling in mood, a greater ability to manage stress and an increased quality of sleep.

There are also a number of articles and journals that advocate the use of CBD in order to increase libido and self-esteem. It has been proven that having a healthy sex-life and higher self-esteem can boost morale, productivity, benefit concentration and overall enjoyment of life.

There’s not many better ways to put a smile on your face than that!

So if you are feeling a bit down in the dumps and you think you’ve tried everything, maybe it’s time to reach for a more natural supplement to give you that uplifting feeling you have been longing for.

Women holding mug filled with coffee

How can you get a bit more CBD in your life?

With a wide range of CBD beverages such as coffee and hot chocolate alongside an array of tasty edibles to suit your needs, the list is infinite when it comes to getting some CBD in your life.

Whether you’re a coffee kind of guy or a chocolate kind of girl, there’s something for everyone. In our modern era, you don’t need to do the guesswork, it’s already done for you.

Whatever tickles your fancy, it’s probably available. From gluten free CBD edibles to caffeine or de-caffeinated CBD coffee, the choice yours.

While habits are often harder to break, we can just try baby steps. Small changes are all we need to make big progress. Some people think we need to change everything about our lifestyles in order to reap the best benefits but that’s just not true.

While having healthy habits can be great for us, it could just be easier to simply substitute one thing for another. Try changing your cup of Joe in the morning for one that contains CBD and go from there.

Easy.

CBD & Testosterone: A match made in heaven?

Testosterone scientific structure

CBD has recently made its mark within the health industry, being thrust firmly into the spotlight. But one thing that might catch the eye of you guys is CBD’s ties to testosterone.

Although it’s not just testosterone that CBD improves. Oh no. It can help to boost sleep quality amongst a range of other factors. And this list is growing daily thanks to increased scrutiny (and interest) in the field. CBD is really beginning to cement its place as king of the industry.

Some of CBD’s powers include; helping to maintain a balanced diet, reducing stress and influencing weight loss as well as lowering anxiety and significantly minimising inflammation. With all of these natural properties, it’s no surprise that more and more people are finding ways to include CBD in their diets.

And now what all the fellas have been waiting for – CBD’s effects on testosterone! While this area of research is relatively new, there is a growing body of literature supporting the positive effects of CBD usage and increased testosterone production. There are also many practical results that CBD can achieve for those consuming the product on a regular basis.

The Benefits of Boosting Testosterone

What are the benefits of boosting testosterone and how can we use CBD to enhance testosterone levels I hear you scream?

Well…

Healthy testosterone levels have been strongly correlated with a healthy heart in gents, as well as aiding weight control. Testosterone can also influence the results of your hours of labour in the gym, helping to build muscle as well as supporting bone strength.

It can also help individuals to feel more driven, happy and has even been shown to increase levels of concentration.

As men get older, there is a natural decrease in testosterone – that’s just life. So for guys looking to lead a healthier and more enjoyable lifestyle, boosting testosterone can be beneficial in working towards achieving those goals. By supplementing your diet with CBD products, you can increase your testosterone in a healthy and sustainable manner. Just be sure to support that with healthy lifestyle changes.

Remember, it needs to be a whole lifestyle shift. CBD isn’t the magic pill that’ll change your life overnight.

Sleep, Stress Reduction and Relaxation

The connection between a solid night’s sleep and healthy testosterone levels has been documented extensively over the years.

This is one of the determining factors for people looking to boost their overall health. A number of studies have revealed that CBD supplements can be a wonderful alternative method to aiding a successful sleep.

As mentioned before, there are swaths of academic research providing evidence that CBD can lower stress, pain and anxiety as well as inflammation. When these factors are reduced, a deep sleep is pretty much guaranteed.

It is also well documented that sleeping less than five hours per night can negatively impact your testosterone levels. This is compounded significantly if you’re continuously getting subpar shuteye. Studies have suggested that on average, eight hours of good quality sleep per night can increase your testosterone levels by almost 15%, hammering home the importance of sleep (and supplementation that can help achieve it).

While regular consumption of CBD can result in deeper sleeps, studies have noted that CBD has no effect or disruption on normalised or regular sleep cycles.

This basically means that compounds found in CBD will help you get a good night’s rest, in turn meaning you can reap the physical and mental rewards that brings. And no, taking CBD won’t knock you out or make you drowsy!

What are the ways that we can include CBD in our diets?

Touted as nature’s little miracle and a universal remedy for all sorts of ailments, CBD should be on your daily menu if you want to take your health to the next level.

But how can you incorporate CBD into your daily routine?

There are many ways you get your daily dose of CBD – from smoothies to chocolates and now even in our cups of coffee in the morning. The possibilities for incorporating CBD into our diets seems endless!

One of the most effective ways to include CBD in your daily diet is by consuming infused beverages and an easy way to start your day is by having a delicious cup of coffee that can instantly boost energy levels.

This method can work well, as the chemical components in both coffee and CBD positively interlace to provide an immediate kick just when you might need it in the morning. The water soluble CBD used in our coffee, syrups, edibles (soon) and hot chocolate is perfect for quick absorption and will have those T levels rocking in next to no time!

CBD edibles come in various forms meaning you’re bound to find the perfect one for you. Options such as cakes and muffins are perfect for a post-dinner treat meanwhile biscuits and cookies are the ideal afternoon snack. CBD sweets and gummies are great options if you’re on the go but still keen to incorporate CBD into your daily life meaning there’s no excuse, no matter how busy you are.

Sweet CBD treats are the perfect way of adding CBD into your routine without having to adjust your taste-buds to the slightly ‘grassy’ taste of CBD oil. Many people say CBD can taste a little like grass or earth, which is probably not your flavour of choice when it comes to an afternoon snack. While some people actively like the taste or can at least adjust to it, others who are keen to use CBD prefer to find an option that helps to mask the taste. And that’s where edibles come in. Edibles offer all the good stuff of CBD oil but in a way that’s easier to digest.

Benefits of CBD edibles

Some of the benefits of CBD include pain relief, mood improvement and better sleep so it’s no surprise that people are keen to try CBD for themselves. For many people though, the thought of using a CBD oil every day can be a little daunting which is why edibles are a great option, especially for those just starting out on their CBD journey. Edibles are a great way of adding CBD into a busy lifestyle. If you’re already snacking throughout the day then switching one of them up for a CBD alternative will make little impact to your waistline and pocket but could have major impacts on everything from your mood to your sleep pattern.

Normally, edible CBD products can take a little longer to fully ‘kick in’ meaning it may take longer for you to see an effect than if you were using an oil. However, at Calm Recovery, we use water soluble CBD in our edibles. This means that the CBD is absorbed much quicker than conventional oils.

This is all thanks to the CBD we use being ground to the size of nano particles, making it much easier for your body to handle and increasing your chances of absorbing 100% of it.

Not to mention, our water soluble CBD is completely tasteless unlike other forms of CBD, meaning it has zero impact on the overall taste of the edibles (or our coffee!).

Another perk of choosing CBD edibles is that they’re more discreet than other options such as oil. It’s unlikely that people will give you a second glance if you start digging into a cookie or some sweets on your commute home however if you start dropping CBD oil under your tongue then you might get some funny looks. CBD edibles slot perfectly into everyday life  meaning you won’t need to make any lifestyle changes if you want to start using them.

Where can you get CBD edibles?

Whilst CBD can be woody or nutty and people often have to wash it down with water once they’ve taken it, CBD edibles can be consumed just the same as you would consume their non-CBD counterparts. CBD edibles are also a great option to pair with a CBD coffee or CBD hot chocolate. We’re all partial to a coffee and cake every now and then so why not make your regular treat a little less naughty by swapping to CBD versions? Nothing compliments a biscuit better than a hot drink and you can find our full range of CBD infused hot drinks on the shop section of the site.

We’ll soon be launching a range of CBD edible products including cookies (Calm Cookies), brownies and chocolate meaning you can get your sugar fix as well as your dose of CBD. Our edibles taste exactly how you’d imagine cookies or brownies to taste (great!) but they also come with a stream of CBD benefits making them the perfect choice for an afternoon snack or post-dinner treat.
