Flawsome Jems Relaxation advice

It’s been a stressful for me for many and things are slowly starting to resume, or planning to be opening again, whether it’s work, shops, schools, etc. we are all feeling a bit overwhelmed and need to learn to find the time for ourselves to chill out. So today I’m going to share some selfcare ideas to help you ditch the daily overwhelm and start living that healthy life you deserve.

Time to Chill!

Looking for a luxurious way to relax and get some much-needed anxiety relief?

Look no further than CBD and Epsom Salts!

You know how an Epsom salt bath can help you relax and unwind while help soothing the nerves?

Combined with CBD, it works much in the same way and are very similar to regular Epsom bath products, except they’ve got that magic cannabidiol ingredient that takes the bath experience to another level entirely

If you’re looking for seriously kick buJ combo, try mixing some extra Epsom salts in the bath with a CBD bath bomb/dust.

Like with Jems products, you may even find CBD bath products where the two are already mixed in for you.

Epsom salt baths are known for helping people relieve soreness, stress, and promote healthy skin.

Add CBD to the mix and your just took your relaxation session to the max.

Huge bonus and something to keep in mind when looking to unwind at the end of a long day

Lots of bath products are available these days, including:

  • Bath Bombs 
  • Bath Salts 
  • Bath Dusts
  • Body Oils
  • Face Masks

Jem offers a selection of Bath Dusts, Balms and Creams and Hair Care Products that could be used as part of your self-care routine.

CBD topicals are applied directly to the skin, and come in the form of lotions, creams, balms and salves.

CBD topicals are excellent for providing localized relief in the affected area.

They are designed to be applied directly/absorbed through the skin by submerging into a bath infused with CBD, to the skin, where they are then absorbed through the skin, bypassing the digestive tract completely.

Research indicates the presence of an endocannabinoid system in the skin, which has been associated with several biological processes.

Because CBD topicals are applied/absorbed directly to the skin and bypass the digestive tract and liver, the effects can be felt much more quickly than any of the other delivery methods.

Generally, the effects of CBD topicals can be felt within 15-20 minutes (and sometimes faster) and can last for up to 6 hours. Surprisingly, topicals are known to be the longest-las/ng form of CBD administration

Using CBD:

One of the first things to understand about how long the effects of CBD last is that CBD affects everyone differently.

How long it takes to feel the effects and how long these effects are experienced depend a lot on the person who’s taking it.

Remember, CBD affects everyone differently and dosages between individuals will vary tremendously.

How Much CBD Should I Take?

If you’re new to CBD, give it some time. You’ll want to give your body some time to adjust to taking it.

Many people just starting out on their CBD journey try it for the first time and think they’re going to immediately see extraordinary results, but this isn’t always how CBD works.

Now to be sure, some people do see extraordinary results the first time (and we love hearing those stories), but remember that CBD affects each person differently.

It’s best to give your CBD regimen sometime before determining how long various methods of administration work for you.

We came across an article in the Cannabis Herald which refers to using CBD oil as hangover help. Consumption of alcoholic beverages can lead to a more frequent need for urination, these quick trips to the bathroom depletes the water quantity in your body at an alarming rate. These frequent urination trips can eventually lead to dehydration in the human body.

If the person gets dehydrated, it causes a decrease in the level of electrolytes and nutrients as the compounds discharge with the frequent urination. These low levels of nutrients ultimately lead to headaches and dizziness

CBD oil helps in regaining the lost amount of electrolytes, antioxidants, and nutrients that were carried with urine. Although, CBD oil does not fulfill the lost water quantity in the body so it is essential to drink lots of water between drinks or after drinks to avoid dehydration With proper water intake and right CBD oil dosage, you can finally put those migraine-like headaches behind you

Alcohol is directly responsible for the low blood sugar levels in the body. The toxic alcohol can rapidly decrease the sugar levels means the body can not function properly and eventually leads to an irritating feeling in the body and also leads to the shakiness of muscles. 

CBD oil can help you in restoring the level of blood sugar without giving you a sugar crash. CBD oil is capable of reducing the secretion of the insulin hormone. This will allow the body to increase the sugar level at a slow gradual rate. However, this process is slow and can not happen over time, so it is mainly designed to provide more long term results
