This decade has given rise to the conscious consumer. We care about what we are putting into and onto our bodies, where our food is coming from, and finding sustainable solutions for every day things. From reusable water bottles and straws to more fuel efficient cars, we are thinking about our environmental impact when we make purchases like never before – for the good of the people, the good of our planet, and the good of our souls.
And now, we are advocating for CBD to be available to anyone looking to obtain the many, many health benefits the multi-functional cannabis compound has to offer.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the wellness supplement the population can’t seem to get enough of, and for good reason. It is non-intoxicating (meaning it will not get you high), naturally derived from hemp plants, and it is able to treat such a wide range of health conditions because of its interaction with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS).
People are raving about how CBD is diminishing their joint pain, easing their stress and anxiety, providing clearer focus throughout the day, aiding in their gut health, and how it is helping curbing their nicotine cravings.
And that’s just scratching the surface of CBD’s potential. There are loads of other reasons people are consuming CBD, but the general answer (if there can be only one) is that CBD works to greatly improve the overall health and well-being of a person.
And because consumer perspective is shifting toward a more sustainable and realistic outlook on their purchasing behavior, CBD is at the epicenter of the health and wellness world. CBD can be used as an effective replacement for many medications and health supplements. So instead of having those 15 medicine bottles in your bathroom cabinet, perhaps you will only need one bottle of CBD.
We are moving away from processed foods, shopping at environmental-friendly stores, and getting as close to natural as we can with everyday use products and lifestyles. Seeing the evidence of a healthy lifestyle and ecosystem surely reflects our inner selves and well being. At all times we should be conscious of what we put into our body, as well as our environment.
CBD is an amazing example of the conscious consumer movement.
Our purpose has become living a fuller, better quality of life through health, wellness and happiness, and what better supplement to mirror our advocacy than with our favorite health compound?
Here are 4 key ways CBD is further influencing the conscious consumer movement:
1. CBD Works as a Multifaceted Health Supplement
Because CBD is able to treat so many health conditions, from pain and anxiety to inflammation and injury to skin issues, it allows us to clear our cluttered medicine cabinets full of traditional medications that really aren’t all that helpful. In addition to this, traditional and prescription medication can have unwanted side effects, whereas CBD has little to no side effects. Side effects of CBD, such as tiredness, only occur in extremely large doses, if at all.
CBD has proven itself to be an effective replacement for over the counter drugs such as Tylenol and Ibuprofen, as well as medication that eases stomach pain and nausea. In addition to this, studies indicate that CBD has the potential to replace prescription antidepressants and chronic pain medications. Plus, CBD has the huge added bonus of not harming your liver and kidneys the way other medications do.
Having one health supplement on hand to act as your pick-me-up, your sleeping pill, your calming force, and much more? Count us in. This reduces the purchasing and consumption of many (usually unnecessary) medications and supplements, ultimately making us better consumers.
2. CBD Helps us Make Better Choices
In order for the supplement function as peak capacity, we have to do our part in making it as easy as possible by staying consistent with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
We all know there is no magic pill or cure-all for every human ailment, but CBD is making a strong case for itself in keeping our bodies in tip top shape. CBD works in this way through enhancing the receptors found in our endocannabinoid system, the system responsible for regulating sleep, cognitive function, mood, memory, learning, neuronal development and more.
Now that we know CBD has the ability to enhance these imperative processes that keep us alive and thriving, doesn’t that make you want to make better choices like reducing our carbon footprint? We think so.
3. Encouraging Utilization of the Hemp Plant
There are so many good things to say about the hemp plant. Referred to as the “industrial hemp plant,” hemp provides natural raw materials like rope, clothing, and building materials. Hemp can be grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. Its seeds and flowers, for example, are used in health foods, organic body care, and other nutraceuticals.
Cultivation of the hemp plant encourages farmers and growers to utilize “green” materials like hemp fiber and hempcrete as opposed to harmful commercial products made out of plastic. Growing hemp has also shown it’s ability to enrich soil and encourage growth of other crops. Hemp has a short grow cycle and helps replenish nutrients into the soil, making it ideal for farmers to grow in between other crops.
What’s does CBD have to do with hemp? Remember, CBD is derived from hemp.
4. Supporting Small Businesses by Purchasing CBD Products
CBD brands, products and retailers are only kept standing tall by way of…you guessed it…you! Health-conscious consumers are what keeps us going.
By supporting CBD retailers, you are supporting the small business economy, which is great on many accounts. You are supporting local businesses known to give back to the community, you are receiving better customer service, and you are gaining expert advice and craftsmanship in the process.
Small business owners create more jobs for the economy and are known to build and help the local community. CBD is a relatively new commodity and an interesting market, so it makes sense that most CBD companies are startups.
So to all the green warriors out there, old and new – consider making CBD your next purchase on the way to being the ultimate conscious consumer.
