‘Tis the time of year to start making a list and checking it twice. Then wake up at the crack of dawn, still stuffed with turkey and pie and take that list to the nearest shopping mall to find deals on all those gifts that just have to be had! In all the crazy hustle and bustle of big crowds and long lines, a serving of Black Friday CBD could make your shopping experience infinitely better.
The Benefits of CBD for Black Friday Shopping
There are a number of ways that Black Friday CBD can put the joy back into giving. CBD is the abbreviation for the word “cannabidiol” and it is one of over 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. This non-psychoactive cannabinoid is known for its positive effects on both the body and mind. The benefits of CBD may be especially applicable to coping with the mass hysteria of Black Friday shopping.
Black Friday Can be Rough
Black Friday has origins that reflect the mob-like mentality that may encompass crowds of people all in search of the same popular items. In the 1950’s, the police force in Philadelphia nicknamed the day after Thanksgiving “Black Friday” due to large crowds of fans and tourists who would come to town for shopping and the Army vs Navy football game. Those crowds could get rough and overwhelming.
A more modern concept of the day reflects profits for retailers who may spend much of the year in the red (profit loss) but go into the black (profit gain) during the popular shopping day. The biggest reason for the popularity of Black Friday shopping is the massive sales that occur in many stores throughout the nation. Over 135 million Americans are estimated to shop over Thanksgiving weekend.
Crowds are known to be massive and occasionally fractious. Surprisingly, there are more reported deaths and injuries during Black Friday shopping than there have been shark attacks. This is according to a website that has been tracking all Black Friday related incidents since 2006. Staying focused, awake, calm and in good spirits are some of the best ways to have a safe and productive shopping experience. The benefits of CBD can help.
Black Friday CBD Shopping Tips
Preparing for Black Friday is similar to a big sports event. You have to be ready with a plan on game day. Athletes prepare mentally and physically before every competition. Now it is your time to perform and bring home the big win with the best gifts. But know there will be some obstacles to overcome. Here are some ways a Black Friday CBD serving can increase your rate of shopping success.
1. Get Solid Sleep
It may be difficult to fall asleep after all the excitement of the day, but it is necessary. You need to be up early enough for the best deals! The benefits of a good night sleep are really important to achieve an all-around good day. CBD itself will not make you “sleepy” but taking a larger serving in the evening will help your body and mind relax.
2. Wake up and focus
Never go into a potentially stressful situation groggy and discombobulated. CBD interacts with some of the same receptors as caffeine which help you to perk up and start thinking clearly. You have a plan of attack for each store. You will need focus to execute them. One of the benefits of CBD in the morning is that there are no jitters. Black Friday CBD can also go right into your morning coffee or tea to keep you moving and checking off that list.
3. Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
We have all heard the horror stories about fights breaking out over the last toy or television. Don’t be that person. The body’s natural endocannabinoid system is made up of receptors that are present all throughout the body, including the brain where happiness occurs. These receptors have a two-way communication system that helps to keep you calm, controlled and merry even when things don’t go as planned.
4. Plan for a Lot of Walking and Standing
The lines can get pretty long and the better the deal, the longer the line! CBD is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants are known for their ability to get rid of inflammation-inducing free radicals. This inflammation can come from physical irritations from injuries or even from the food we eat. Good luck trying to eat healthy on Thanksgiving! Receptra Naturals also has a Targeted Topical salve that can be used on sore muscles and joints as needed.
Benefits of CBD Throughout the Season
Black Friday is likely not the only day that is going to be a little challenging this season. The holidays are jam-packed with reasons to be stressed and busy. Holiday decorating, dinners, parties, pageants can be just the beginning. Luckily, Receptra Naturals Pure Hemp CBD Oil is easy to use. It can be taken sublingually or added to many holiday foods and beverages to make the season go a little smoother. It also fits perfectly in a stocking. So you can check that off your list!
