CBD - Your Secret Weapon for Stress-Free Travel

Travel can be one of life’s greatest experiences, but for many of us, it comes with a variety of stressors that can wreak havoc on our minds and bodies. Whether it’s a fear of flying, long hours spent in cramped seating, or good old-fashioned jetlag, there are plenty of reasons why you might show up to your destination feeling less than your best self. 

As more people turn to CBD for overall body wellness, it’s becoming recognized as the perfect travel companion, ready to soothe your nerves and relax your muscles to ensure your vacation is the best one yet.

Here are some of the ways CBD will help you feel your best while traveling.

Calm down before your flight

Once upon a time, prescription drugs like Xanax were the go-to remedy for pre-flight anxiety. Now, more and more anxious travelers are turning to the natural effects of cannabidiol to soothe their pre-flight jitters.

Even if you’re not afraid of flying, there are plenty of reasons to feel anxious before a flight. Getting to the airport on time, remembering everything you packed, making it through security without any damage to your laptop. It’s almost like airports are a recipe for a panic attack.

We’ve talked before about how CBD helps reduce daily stressors, which is why it’s also helpful for preventing your flight-related anxieties from taking over your day of travel. Keep your cool and maintain your sense of calm with a few drops of our CBD oil under your tongue a few hours before your flight. If you’re highly anxious about getting on an airplane, make sure to start a daily CBD routine at least a week before your flight. This will give your endocannabinoid system more time to regulate and get used to the help of CBD, which will improve your overall effects.

Reducing Swelling

When you spend hours cramped into an airplane, bus, or train seat, it’s common for your legs and feet to swell up due to lack of blood flow. When your legs are in a resting position for long hours, it reduces your circulation and causes blood to pool up in the lower part of your body. This can potentially crash your vacation plans, especially if restless legs keep you up all night or the inflammation makes it hard to move around.

If you’re dealing with post-travel inflammation, our CBD Day Gummies are the perfect solution. Each gummy contains 10mg of all-natural CBD, plus theanine and turmeric, two powerful anti-inflammatories that promote circulation and immune protection. We recommend keeping a couple of gummies in your carry-on bag for easy access when your legs are feeling the struggle. Once you’re in the hotel room, help your circulation recover with a “legs up the wall” session.

Post-flight Soreness

Travel can also take a toll on your muscles when you’re cramped into tight seats or sleeping in uncomfortable beds (or on the ground, if you’re on an outdoor adventure). This can make it difficult to sleep, and if you’re not sleeping well, you’re not going to enjoy your vacation to its fullest potential. In this case, we recommend a topical CBD cream to target your pain right at the source.

Studies have shown that topically applied CBD has a higher therapeutic potential when you’re trying to relieve soreness in certain areas of the body. This allows the CBD to absorb into a targeted area over an extended period of time, focusing on where you need it most. 

Our CBD body cream contains high concentrations of broad-spectrum cannabinoid hemp extract, formulated specifically to relieve inflammation and pain caused by exercise, lack of movement, or everyday stressors on the body. When combined with the power of eucalyptus, rosemary, shea butter, aloe, and sunflower seeds, our THC-free formula penetrates your skin to deliver a consistent dose of antioxidants, pain relief, and skin hydration. 

Tips for Starting a CBD Travel Regimen

As you can see, our products are perfectly formulated to help you travel in comfort. If you know you have a trip coming up that could take a toll on your body, we recommend starting your CBD routine ahead of time.

CBD’s effects on your endocannabinoid system are cumulative, so the effects on day 14 of taking CBD will be more powerful than the effects of your first day taking CBD. For this reason, we recommend starting a daily CBD routine at least 30 days before you travel. This gives your endocannabinoid system time to get used to the aid of CBD as it works toward homeostasis. When you reach homeostasis, your body is ready to take on the world - even if you’re stuck at the airport.

We hope this helps you find the perfect CBD travel companion, whether you’re an experienced consumer or new to the world of cannabidiol. As always, we are always available to answer your questions and make your next purchase a success.
