Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is all the rage these days. From stories on the news about the CBD phenomenon to natural health practitioners touting its benefits on blogs and webinars to celebrities giving ringing endorsements in interviews and on social media, you can’t escape it. Just a few years ago, the CBD phenomenon was often inaccurately characterized by critics as a new way for people to get high, but over the last few years, it has become common knowledge that while most CBD comes from a plant (hemp) in the same genus as the marijuana plant, it contains a negligible amount of tetrahydrocannabinol (also known as THC), the compound that causes the high. In other words, it is impossible to get high from hemp-derived CBD. CBD is now being seen by more and more people around the world as a legitimate method for relieving and treating the symptoms of a variety of maladies, which include but aren’t limited to, PTSD, inflammatory conditions, chronic pain, stiffness, digestive issues, sleep disorders, anxiety, ADHD, OCD, stress relief, nausea, migraine headaches, spasms, seizures, depression, and even acne. People who make their living by spending much of their life traveling often deal with one or more of these ailments on a regular basis, which makes Diamond CBD oils and creams ideal and thoughtful holiday gifts for the traveler in your life.
As most travelers are well aware from personal experience, frequent flying and traveling through unfamiliar areas of the world can wreak havoc on the immune system and cause a variety of illnesses that can stop a vacation or work trip dead in its tracks, and even make the days immediately following one completely miserable. Diamond CBD Oil may be exactly what the doctor ordered to help frequent travelers lessen the severity of, or even prevent, some illnesses that arise during or immediately after a trip. CBD is a plant-based cannabinoid, or phytocannabinoid, which mimics and helps supplement the cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the human body, which are called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are responsible for activating immune responses, are instrumental in regulating neuron function and protecting them from damage, and help healthy cells to properly function while causing bad cells to stop functioning. All of this means that CBD is thought to help strengthen the human endocannabinoid system, which has receptors in all of the major organs in your body and affects all vital bodily functions. Because of this, the human endocannabinoid system plays a large role in pain, mood, memory, cognition, and more, as well as strengthening the immune system as a whole, which in turn, may help travelers maintain or even boost their health and resistance during and after traveling.
In addition to being hard on the immune system, traveling can be incredibly stressful. Travel nightmares such as flight delays and cancellations, missed connecting flights, and unforeseen issues involving hotels and transportation, can be quite common, and trying to rectify them while keeping to your planned schedule can be enough to frustrate even the most patient of travelers. Luckily, CBD is a natural de-stressor. It activates the serotonin receptors in your brain, which among other things, helps to dictate your happiness level and regulate your mood. Using CBD oil while traveling is a great and effective way to stay relaxed during the more stressful moments, and to kick back, relax, and enjoy your trip, no matter what kinds of hiccups suddenly arise.
The same serotonin receptors that help to regulate your mood also help regulate your sleep. And if there’s one thing most travelers know the pain of, it’s sleep issues, especially insomnia and jet lag, which often strikes those who have to cross multiple time zones to reach their destination. Because CBD is a natural de-stressor, it is known to help those with sleep issues relax enough to get a good night’s rest, which is a necessity for travelers who want to be as productive as possible during the day.
In addition to oils, CBD is also available in a variety of forms, including pain creams. Diamond CBD Creams are a convenient and effective way for travelers to protect and soothe their skin while also providing relief from a variety of conditions. Because CBD has anti-inflammatory properties, the CBD in Diamond’s BioTech Pain Cream may help active travelers who are suffer from sore muscles and joints after hours of walking and sightseeing. The menthol in the cream helps to warm and bring circulation to the application site, while the cream’s tea tree oil and camphor also help to relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Travelers will be happy to learn that these CBD creams also contain aloe vera gel and Vitamin E, which moisturize and protect skin, which makes them the perfect cream to apply to your skin after being cooped up in the dry air of an airplane cabin for hours.
Diamond is ideal for travelers due to the compact size of most of its CBD oil products. Most of the company’s oil bottles are well below the limit of 100 milliliters (3.4 ounces), which means they are small enough to be stored in a quart-sized bag alongside your travel-sized toiletries in your carry-on bag. Diamond’s CBD Creams, however, are just over the volume limit at 4 ounces, so if you’re planning on traveling with the full containers, they will have to go into your checked luggage that goes under the plane.
Although a lot more research into CBD’s effects on the human body need to be conducted in order to have definitive proof of its benefits, the studies that have been done so far have been extremely promising. The positive testimonials from countless CBD users makes it clear that the relief that they’ve enjoyed after suffering from aches, pains, sleep problems, anxiety, stress, and low immunity may be a godsend for the frequent traveler in your life, and that Diamond’s CBD oils and creams are the perfect gift for them this holiday season.
