How CBD Can Support Your Self-Care and Wellness Goals

How can CBD products support your self-care and wellness goals?  Here’s a Smart Hemp Club point of view.


These days all of us are looking for ways to make our lives less stressful and more fulfilling.  In many cases that means prioritizing self-care and focusing on our own health and wellbeing.  It could be said that putting our personal care ahead of others is selfish but we believe it aligns with the “putting your oxygen mask on first” philosophy.  It’s difficult to be present for our loved ones and meet all of our obligations if we are not in a good space personally.


There are many ways to address our self-care needs – nutritious diet, regular exercise, mindfulness/meditation and supplements – to name just a few.  Here at Smart Hemp Club we believe that all of these, in combination, can help you to live a healthy, stress free life.  In this blog we highlight some of the most current thinking in each of these categories to help you accomplish your wellness goals.


From a diet perspective, contemporary nutritional specialists suggest that we 1) incorporate a healthy portion of fruits and vegetables in our diet;  2) minimize the amount of red meat and move toward lean protein sources such as poultry, fish, tofu, legumes and nuts;  3) incorporate whole grains;  4) opt for healthy fats rather than trans fats;  5) limit added sugars and processed foods and 6) drink plenty of water to stay hydrated during the day.


This is the perfect time to switch from frozen food options (which are healthier than canned goods) to  fresh fruits and vegetables  because more of them are “in season”.  Some great choices include strawberries, apricots, cherries, pineapple (which is especially sweet in Spring), mangoes and kiwi.  Vegetables that are at their peak this time of year are asparagus, peas (like snap peas and snow peas), artichokes, spinach, radishes, arugula and fennel.  All of these fruits and veggies are not only flavorful but also packed with nutrients.  They make tasty additions to salads and smoothies or they can be enjoyed as a side dish or a snack.  One of our favorites is a tossed fresh spinach salad with a bit of red wine vinegar, olive oil, strawberries and a few walnuts  - a healthy and flavorful way to start out any meal!


Diet is certainly one important aspect of wellness especially when added to other self-care alternatives.  We specialize in providing CBD products that our buyers say help manage physical discomfort and stress related issues.   Our clients have shared the benefits of topical CBD products for muscle and joint related pain like our Joy Organics Sports cream.  Other clients have expressed their preference for ingestible products like Joy Organics and Radical Labs Gummies and Tinctures.  Check out our website as we carry a variety of these products in order to support the needs and desires of our current and prospective customers.


As we move into Spring it is often a time to reassess and determine what life style changes we want to incorporate so that we can enjoy life fully.  We encourage you to consider what combination of things will support your best life for the months and years to come and Smart Hemp Club wants to be a partner in that journey.
