How CBD Works

CBD is derived from the hemp plant and as such, it does not cause the sensation of being high. Instead, CBD works by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). This is our primary regulatory system which works to regulate sleep and mood. It also helps produce natural endogenous cannabinoids - these act like neurotransmitters that bind to cannabinoid receptors throughout the body which promote homeostasis (balance).

What Exactly is Well-being?

When you focus on more than just your physical health, like mental and emotional, you are focusing on improving your overall well-being. This includes having a good grasp on your mental health as well as managing aspects of your life such as stress. While all of this does take time, it is incredibly important to make your well-being a priority.

Luckily, if you find that your well-being is slipping, there are many ways to get back on track. Whether it is in the form of self-care, therapy, or even help from natural products, improving and maintaining well-being is a possibility for everyone. 

How Do CBD and Well-being Work Together?

CBD is growing in popularity for its ability to help support the body in several ways, including improved sleep, better mood, supporting immune function, digestion, balance, energy, and focus - all areas that also impact your everyday well-being. How is this possible? Well, it all goes back to the ECS. This is because the ECS is essentially a large network of signals and receptors that are packed throughout our brain and body. 

In fact, the cannabinoid receptors that are in everyone’s brain actually outweigh any other receptors (yep, everyone has teeny tiny cannabis-like molecules floating around the body) and when we take CBD, it helps amplify this complex cellular machinery and in turn produces its effects, and in turn, CBD and your well-being work in perfect harmony.


Supporting Your Well-being

Get Enough Sleep

The number one thing that you can do to help support your well-being is to get quality sleep. There’s a reason why we say someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed when their mood is down! However, sleep is something many people struggle with, even though it is the key to improving and maintaining your physical, mental and emotional health. 

A few ways to get the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep include practicing meditation, getting outside, and our number one recommendation - take a quality sleep-focused CBD with rapid absorption. Packed with naturally-derived ingredients, our specially formulated CBD sleep products help you fall asleep - and stay asleep - without grogginess the next day. 

Be Active

You do not need to join a fancy gym to reap the benefits of being active, but getting your body moving is one of the most important things for your well-being. Take a stroll while listening to your favorite podcast, join a local soccer league, or even do some squats while you wait on hold - the extra oxygen you’re getting will help you feel more energetic and boost your mood. 

One of the biggest things that hold people back from being active however is muscle soreness. To combat this, ensure you are drinking plenty of water, eating protein-rich meals, and taking a recovery-based CBD such as our Revive CBD Complex with four times better absorption than other CBD brands. The natural ingredients in this promote a healthy inflammation response which in turn soothes muscle soreness.

Practice Conscious Drinking  

Alcohol is all around us. We use it to bond, mingle, land business deals, and for stress relief. However, foregoing alcohol, even just occasionally, is incredible for your well-being as it can boost your mood and help you shed excess pounds. However, for many, the anxiety of going to a party alcohol-free is stressful enough to make you want a drink! So, where does CBD come in? 

As we’ve mentioned, CBD is a key player when it comes to helping your body’s everyday stressors, meaning when you consume CBD, you likely won’t need that glass of wine at a social event because your ECS is supported by CBD, your mind is calm and you feel relaxed. We recommend a CBD with natural ashwagandha and proprietary ingredients to aid in reducing cortisol levels.

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into ensuring your well-being is in tip-top shape, and while there are many steps you can take to improve and maintain balance, CBD, and well-being are a dynamic pair.  When selecting a CBD to aid in your well-being, be sure to assess the product’s purity and check to see that it is independently lab-tested throughout every stage of its formulation. This is a vital step as poorly made CBD can have a great impact on how well your body metabolizes its absorption of it. 

At NextEvo, our water soluble CBD is made with 100% all-natural US-grown hemp and is independently lab-tested throughout every stage of its formulation to ensure purity and potency. We’re proud to offer pure & potent, highly concentrated CBD that is GMO-free, gluten-free, and suitable for vegan diets.
