There’s no better time to incorporate CBD into your daily wellness routine. If the first six months of 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we need to do the hard work of learning what our body and mind need under the MOST trying circumstances.
In honor of National CBD Day on August 8th, we are digging into why CBD makes sense as part of your wellness routine and sharing our four favorite daily wellness products.
The Wellness Continuum
The Global Health Institute defines wellness as "the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health." Yes, please!
If you think of wellness as a continuum from illness to optimal wellbeing, the concept of applying wellness to daily life is proactive, preventive, and driven by self-responsibility.
That concept lays the firm foundation for adding CBD into our daily wellness practices - proactive and routine.
How Does CBD Impact Wellness?
CBD has many therapeutic benefits from easing nerves to reducing puffiness throughout the body, all of which can be considered preventative care.
But CBD and the other 100+ cannabinoids' ability to support your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is its direct connection to wellness and maintaining homeostasis throughout your body.
Dr. Ashley Jordan Ferira, brings up a great point by asking "remember in Biology class when you learned the 10-12 physiological systems of the human body? Cardiovascular, circulatory, digestive, endocrine, immune, integumentary, muscular, nervous, reproductive, respiratory, skeletal, urinary/excretory. See what’s missing?…the endocannabinoid system.”
She goes on to perfectly describe your ECS as a “fancy thermostat or master regulator for your body.” “The ECS is critical in achieving homeostasis by regulating a wide variety of physiological processes.”
When you think about what your ECS regulates, it is most of your body: central and peripheral nervous systems, immune system, and most organs, tissues, and glands spanning critical functions of physiology, behavior, immunology, and metabolism.
Having your ECS functioning in tip top shape positively affects all body systems.
Supporting Wellness Through Your Endocannabinoid System
When using wellness as a tool to support overall health through your endocannabinoid system, you have different therapeutic levers at your disposal. Here are a few of the most common levers.
- Eating a well-balanced diet of whole foods
- Exercising regularly
- Stress-reducing activities such as practicing mindfulness and deep breathing
- Cannabinoids like CBD, CBG, CBN, and THC
You can use CBD and other cannabinoids to nourish your endocannabinoid system. When trying to achieve or maintain wellness, keeping your ECS in optimal form is ideal.
Daily intake of cannabinoids is something you can easily add to your morning or nightly routines to support wellness.

The Bliss We Crave
Welcome to the world of minor cannabinoids. Meet Gummies RX Bliss, our CBG & CBD gummy. CBG, or cannabigerol, is a non-psychoactive minor cannabinoid that is a precursor to all other cannabinoids.
CBG, often referred to as the “mother” of all cannabinoids, delivers uplifting euphoric feelings. When paired with CBD, expect to be blissed out. Can I get a yes, please?!
Maybe you're an old pro with CBD tinctures and CBD topicals, but have you ever tried CBD cosmetics?
