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.

cbd gummies relieve pain

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 place CBD Oil under your tongue?

CBD oil tintures

So, you’re wondering why you should place CBD oil under your tongue? This is a very good question! Many medicines are taken under the tongue, or ‘sublingual’ as the technical term is, and the shortest answer is because the complex make up of the tongue as an organ and the surrounding membranes will allow any medicine or health-giving addition to be absorbed far quicker. Quite often, less quantity is needed as well.

However, and more importantly for some, people can struggle to take pills of any description for pain relief, anxiety, sleeplessness etc. CBD Oil is a great way to get faster relief from your troubles. The mere thought of swallowing a tablet is enough to put you off taking them, and certainly enough to cause a ‘gag reaction’. Others may have an illness that prevents them from swallowing pills easily.

So, exactly why does it work faster?

It’s to do with the absorption of the CBD Oil. The underside of your tongue is composed of mucous membranes and hundreds of capillaries (small blood vessels). Placing CBD oil under your tongue enables the CBD Oil to be absorbed into the bloodstream at a much faster rate. It also ‘bypasses’ the digestive system, cutting down on the harsh gastric process that occurs when food is digested.

CBD Oil should not affect your digestive system at all, but faster absorption means a more rapid process to obtain the benefits of the oil and calm any anxiety or other nervous disorders that you may be suffering from. Taking it this way will also relieve any aches and pains quicker than by swallowing a pill. It really is a beneficial way of taking CBD Oil.

How long should it be held for?

Calm Recovery recommend 60-90 seconds to hold their CBD Oil – this way absorption should be at its most effective. However, everyone is different, and it can work faster on varying individuals, just like any remedial substance. You may have to try different lengths of time, but try the 60-90 second method first until you find out if you need a little longer, or shorter timespan.

It’s also a great idea to ‘chill out’ once you have placed it under your tongue for the first time. Don’t hunch up your shoulders, try not to panic (there is no need!), just stay happy and calm – 60 seconds is not a long time to feel the consequent calming effect when it begins to absorb.

How long does it really take to work?

The same applies here – different people have different speeds of reaction. For most it can be expected to take less than 30 minutes, but for others it can be a longer process. Placing CBD oil under your tongue is far more effective than swallowing it or any other CBD product, however tasty it may be. The most important thing to realise it that a greater quantity of the properties of the oil are absorbed, with as much as 35% of it reaching your bloodstream, as opposed to only around 4-5%, if it has to pass through the liver before reaching the bloodstream for dispersal. Other foodstuffs such as fat, will delay any process through the liver and consequently reduce the effectiveness of CBD.

Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is one of the most effective on the market, and we would recommend the sublingual method every time for maximum benefit and faster results.

Worried about the taste?

Worry not! Calm Recoverys’ Calm Drops™ come in a handy 500ml drop dispenser for ease of use – but best of all, our premium CBD Oil Tincture has a delicate orange flavour to make it all much more palatable to those who struggle with taste. Placing CBD oil under your tongue is so much easier to take and administer wherever you are in a crowded room, your car, or on public transport. Discreet and easy to use in seconds.

If you are still a little concerned, why not try our CBD Gummies? A delicious fruit flavoured sweet to pop in your mouth, straight from your handbag or pocket. Chewing on these will release the flavours and the beneficial effects, and you can control how long you leave them in your mouth for absorption, before swallowing.

Look out for our ‘bumper offer’ of both gummies and drops (link) for the best of all.

More Of The UK Population Are Turning To CBD Oil To Treat Anxiety

cbd oil for anxiety

Are people using CBD for anxiety?

Yes, it’s true – people are finding comfort and relief from chronic anxiety by using a few drops of CBD Oil. Sales have all but doubled between 2018/2019, and currently show no signs of slowing down. London has the highest popularity rating of the whole of the UK.
CBD is now used in many health and beauty products throughout the world and celebrity endorsements abound. You could arguably say it’s ‘trendy’, but there is far more to CBD and CBD Oil than anyone ever imagined. Whoopi Goldberg, Jennifer Aniston and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the well known celebs who include it in their daily health routine.

CBD oil is recommended for treating various illnesses both bodily and mentally. Anxiety is rife in the UK due to the pace of life that we all lead in current times. However, there is a word of warning – not all CBD products are gold standard, but we are proud to say that Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is of premium quality.

Aches and pains are one thing, but anxiety can be just as crippling to our mental health, as can depression and other stress-related illnesses. A high quality oil can take the edge off neurological problems such as agitation, nervousness, anxiety and depression, but it is not a cure for other disorders such as Alzheimers or dementia – there have been no proven research studies long term into this much bandied around suggestion. It may alleviate associated symptoms, but it is certainly not a cure.

cbd oil helps anxiety

How do you know that Calm Recoverys’ CBD Oil is safe?

We use the finest and most tested method of extraction called Co2, to ensure our CBD Oil is a top quality product. This method of extraction carries a gold standard rating. Once extracted from the plant, it is as pure as possible, containing only 0.0005% of THC which is the psychoactive component – in fact, oils for sale in the UK must have a THC content of less than 0.01% – you can see that our product is considerably safer.

Our CBD Oil is certified lab tested for content and quality, with our reassurance that every batch is scrutinised thoroughly and reports issued to us. If you need any further information or advice, we will be happy to help.

Worried about the taste?

If you have never tried CBD Oil before, fear not! The carrier oil used in Calm Recovery CBD Oil is known as MCT, which is both clear and odourless. The only taste you will experience is that of our added orange flavour, which is pleasant on the tastebuds, unlike some other oils on the market. When held under the tongue for a minute, it provides a really pleasant customer experience, which we feel is important to both you and us.
Even if you don’t want to hold the oil under your tongue, you could always try our delicious CBD Gummies, which provide a sweet treat at any time of the day. Easy to carry around in your pocket or bag, this pack of multi-flavoured sweets (link to gummies product page) could be the answer for you. Chewy and yummy, and shaped like cute bears! Pop into your mouth to ease your anxiety whenever you feel the need.

CBD Oil for anxiety relief

Can CBD Oil really help my anxiety?

Looking at case studies, many people swear that by using CBD Oil you can get relief from nervous disorders. Like any other products, research and clinical trials are perpetually ongoing, but so far this claim has been validated by thousands and thousands of happy customers who have undergone serious anxiety and depression.

Please remember that CBD Oil can also be taken as an aid to restful sleep. Anxiety is often accentuated in people with poor sleeping patterns, so it’s certainly worth a try.
CBD Oil has a multitude of uses, not just as a relief from anxiety.

One of our Brand Ambassadors is Luther Clay, a fast, up and coming young boxer who has a record now of 13-1 successful fights. Luther is sure that using CBD Oil in his regime aids his rest and recovery period. This is surely an indictement as to how good our oil is. Other sports stars such as Megan Rapinoe (Women’s Football Player of the Year) agrees with the rest and recovery aspect after a long hard match.

If you have any doubts, talk to your GP or medical practitioner. The majority are now fully aware of the beneficial properties of CBD Oil.

Choosing The Right CBD Product For Pain Relief

calm recovery logo banner

Choosing the right CBD product is critical for everyone – there are so many products on the market that could be inferior and have little or no beneficial effect in terms of pain relief. So, if you have got to the end of your tether in terms of pain, try Calm Recovery CBD products to help you. All of our products have an effect on pain, but some specific products can be more helpful in terms of a more rapid response.

More and more research is being carried out on a daily basis, but results already show that CBD can help with pain related illnesses such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, back pain, fibromyalgia and almost any kind of pain experienced in the human body, particularly in the muscular skeletal structure. But the most important issue to remember is the quality of the product, its source and its extraction methods. Low grade oils, capsules and any other CBD products simply will not do anything other than create a hole in your bank account and very little pain relief. Calm Recovery offer you the very best quality in CBD coffee and the rest of our range.

It is also important to remember that CBD products are not a cure, they alleviate symptoms to make any pain more bearable. There is no miracle, just simple and effective relief from a daily burden. Quite a lot of the population have suffered a lifetime of pain, preventing them from any normal duties such as work, play, sleep and generally enjoying themselves. Calm Recovery will enable you to achieve fast and effective relief as so many scientific reports and research show.

What we promise at Calm Recovery

You only need to look at our reviews on Trust Pilot to prove that we know exactly what we are doing, and that our CBD products are second to none.

Our guarantees are:

  • Top quality hemp growing standards to ensure safety and best possible health benefits. The source of our hemp is always shown on the Calm recovery website.
  • No exposure to toxins or harmful chemicals. Hemp is one of the plants that can take everything from the soil around it.
  • The best CBD products, as supplied by Calm Recovery, use a ‘pressure method’ for extraction, whereas other companies may use a ‘heat method’ which involves unwelcome chemicals.
  • We supply Broad Spectrum CBD, the best variety on the market and free from THC, the element that can cause ‘a high’ in cannabis. If you decide to purchase oil, the colour should be a deep golden to brown hue. Oils that are pale have probably not undergone a viable extraction method to remove THC.
  • All our CBD products have high bioavailability, ensuring that all nutrients are evenly distributed throughout the body via the bloodstream.
  • Perfect and efficient packaging, ensuring no degradation or exposure to outside elements.
  • Fast despatch so that you receive a top-quality product on time.

Choosing the right product for pain relief

Calm Recovery’s CBD coffee has the fastest action to relieve pain, but all of our other products work, whether Calm Recovery CBD hot chocolate, our CBD tea and even our cookies – it’s just a case of you wanting the speediest way to ease your body from the pain that’s stopping you from living life to the full. Achieving the right dosage for your body is also a key factor in pain relief. The one thing you need to do is monitor after the first few dosages to get the right level for you – we are all different.

Calm Recovery CBD products will act fast – somewhere between 30 minutes and a couple of hours, depending on your physiology. Other Calm Recovery products may take longer, so have a cookie during your waiting time and try to relax!

From a muscular skeletal point of view, once you have joint pain your body will tense up as a natural reaction. You need to ease that tension as part of the process, and our products will start you on the way, quite rapidly, to coping with the problem. If pain stops you from drifting off or waking up halfway through the night, then some of our delicious and comforting CBD Hot Chocolate will make you relax into a blissful sleep.

If your pain is exacerbated during the day, due to physical stress on your joints or muscles, start the day with a CBD Coffee and a drop of CBD syrup. You can top up with our Calm Recovery Coffee throughout the day, but we recommend no more than 6 cups, particularly if you are using other CBD products.

If you are in any doubt about our products, processes or other questions, do contact us at info@calmrecovery.com and our experienced advisors will be happy to answer any queries you may have.

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.

pouring cbd syrup

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.

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.

Cost saving

Due to the ever increasing cost of living, people are often attracted to products or services that offer big savings and subscription services offer these in abundance. This is thanks to regular, guaranteed orders which allows companies to bulk buy products and pass the savings on to you. 

This could be anything from a percentage off the regular price of your favourite flavour to extra products included in your delivery at no extra cost each month. 

Coffee will always taste good, but even more so at a discounted rate. There’s no better sweetener than savings…

Time saving 

Time is always a precious commodity and even more so in today’s fast paced society.

Any hour, minute or even second that can be saved nowadays is precious. We are always on the lookout for the quickest way to get the things we want.

A break from the norm 

Food and drink subscriptions are still a bit different from the norm, but are slowly on the rise to match their competitors in the markets. So while it’s still a bit of a niche market, you can stand out from the norm with your CBD coffee subscription box. Certainly one to rub in your friends’ face! Or you could be mature and buy them one too ;).

Hopefully one of these reasons resonates with you and has encouraged you to think about CBD coffee subscription services (and how they can massively benefit your day-to-day life.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Is CBD coffee more effective than CBD oil?

Cannabis leaf and cbd oil tincture

CBD is everywhere now. From what was once a very hush-hush product in the wings of the health world, it has blossomed into a major player, promising everything from anxiety-relief to improved athletic performance and libido.

In fact, it’s come so far that companies are infusing CBD in all manner of products. And here at the Calm Recovery, we are no different, having infused – you guessed it – coffee beans with CBD! But are these infusions better than the original?

That’s right, we’re talking CBD oil. The poster child for hemp.

Shall we see?

Let’s define effective 

So when we’re talking about which is more effective between CBD coffee and CBD oil, what exactly do we mean?

We could define effective in all sorts of ways but for the sake of this article, let’s go ahead and say effective is how efficiently the product delivers CBD’s associated health benefits and whether or not the user experiences more or less of these benefits as a direct result of the way they are taking in their CBD.

Simple enough?

The key difference between CBD coffee & CBD oil

The main difference between the CBD in coffee and its oily counterpart is the type of CBD used. This is where all of the other differences between the two stem from.

We can only speak for ourselves, so that’s what we’ll do.

Our CBD coffee contains water soluble CBD as opposed to the thicker oil that is used in what most people would call ‘conventional CBD’. The main benefit of water soluble CBD is that it passes into the bloodstream quicker than the oil, meaning you’ll receive a much more immediate benefit than if you were to drop some oil underneath your tongue.

When pairing this with coffee, it can be extremely effective for people who love to work out or who really need an extra jolt in the morning. Because of CBD’s anti-inflammatory properties and the stimulating effect of coffee beans (especially our organic, ethically sourced ones!), using these in conjunction can be the perfect pick me up for people who want benefits on the fly.

Compare that to your bog standard oil and you can see where the differences in effectiveness begin to arise.

Now we’re not saying that CBD oil is the Devil here, let’s just be clear on that. It has been proven time and time again to be effective and has so many applications for pretty much everyone in the world.

But that’s all relative. In the same way a Ford is a great car, when compared to a Ferrari, one is probably going to be a bit more effective at getting you from 0-60…

Which should you go for?

Now that’s the big question.

Listen, whether you choose to go with CBD coffee or CBD oil, you’re still going to get some amazing benefits, so don’t think this decision is life and death.

But when it comes to effectiveness – the whole point of this article – you’re probably going to want to go with the CBD coffee.

Let’s go over a quick bullet-point list of why the beans beat the oil;

  • It’s more convenient. Using a coffee cup is far easier than carrying a giant bottle of oil around all day.
  • It is quicker absorbing thanks to the water soluble CBD. You’ll feel the benefits more readily.
  • It tastes better! Guzzling a cup of Joe is always going to be far more appealing than dropping oil under your tongue and holding it there for 2 minutes. This means you’re far more likely to stick with the habit and feel long term benefits. Effective.
  • There are more potential benefits. Coffee beans themselves are anti-inflammatory, offer a boost in energy and are packed full of antioxidants, meaning you’re actually getting a fuller profile of nutrients than if you were to just consume a pipette of oil. Again, the effectiveness of these combined superfoods outweighs the former CBD poster child!

It’s quite hard to argue against a mountain of evidence like that. As impartial as we’d like to be, the two simply just don’t compare.

And don’t worry if you’re screaming at the computer that you hate coffee!

We have CBD hot chocolate (also available in a vegan recipe), CBD syrups and we’re even coming out with all sorts of CBD edibles in the not-so-distant future. These all contain the water soluble CBD that makes our coffee so effective; no need to worry about sacrificing the health benefits. Winner!

And that is that folks.

You’ve been armed with the knowledge to take the next step on your CBD journey.

It’s quite the no-brainer (in our humble opinion), so if you want to get involved with CBD coffee, a hot chocolate or even our new edibles range – head over to the Calm Recovery website and get yourself some cracking CBD deals.
