CBD Honey, A Powerful Duo: Superfood and Medical Marvel!
Honey is such an esteemed superfood that it has been used in cultures across the world for millennia. And the popularity of CBD (cannabidiol), while certainly not a new compound, has soared in recent years thanks to new research and understanding. So, what happens when you combine two amazing natural products? You may find potential health benefits and relief of symptoms from a variety of ailments!
4 Powerful Aspects of Honey
Honey has many benefits. But for maximizing its versatility, raw, unfiltered honey is your best bet. Commercially processed honey loses some of its nutritional benefits. Potential benefits of honey include:
- Boosting the immune system with more than 20 amino acids, 27 minerals, and 5,000 live enzymes, which fight disease and improve gut health. The antioxidants found in raw honey help block free radicals and may reduce the risk of certain diseases and illnesses, including heart disease. (All in one little teaspoon a day!)
- Treating Wounds, Cuts and Burns due to its antiseptic properties. Honey helps clean wounds, promotes healing, reduces swelling and prevents infection.
- Energy Source when used by athletes as both a pre-workout fuel and a post-workout recovery supplement. Studies from the University of Memphis Exercise and Sports Nutrition Laboratory showed honey to be one of the best pre-workout carbohydrate choices.
- Natural Sleep Aid. Taken before bed, honey helps you sleep better by releasing melatonin in the brain, as well as restocking the liver’s glycogen supply (which means you won’t wake up ravenous in the middle of the night!).
CBD: The Alleged Cure-All
Recently discovered in the 1990s, the mammalian endocannabinoid system (ECS) is critical in the regulation of many processes in the body, including pain, mood, hormones, and more. CBD works on this system, and consequently on the processes it regulates, by binding to cannabinoid receptors.
CBD is derived from the hemp plant, a cousin of marijuana, and may promote clarity, concentration and focus, while potentially providing relief and support for a number of health conditions.
Ongoing research on both CBD and the ECS means even more uses and benefits are being uncovered – all without the risk of psychoactive properties, potential to affect a drug test, or the federal illegality currently still associated with its marijuana counterpart compound, THC.
