How does it help you meditate?
It helps with anxiety
Since hemp oil has anxiolytic properties, which means it relieves your brain from anxiety, it can help you clear your mind much easier. Even people who don’t suffer from anxiety sometimes have trouble clearing their mind after a long and stressful day, and so hemp oil can help you even if you’re not anxious but simply worked up or stressed out. It does this by acting on your brain’s receptors that are responsible for producing serotonin, also known as the happy chemical. As soon as you’re calm enough, you can continue to the state of complete self-awareness that can only be achieved during relaxation. This also means that is boosts your mood and creates an overall sense of well-being. What’s best about hemp oil is that besides being completely natural, it has no side effects due to the fact it’s non-psychoactive.
It reduces soreness and relaxes your muscles
Products that contain hemp oil have been used as a powerful but natural pain relief for some and it can also do wonders for your meditation, a two for one. If you have sore muscles or joint pains, it’s almost impossible to relax and clear your mind. This happens because you’re feeling physical pain and that’s all you’re able to think about. Since hemp oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties, and is great at reducing soreness, as well as chronic and neuropathic pain, many meditators have discovered its amazing properties. The best way to use hemp oil for relieving pain is to take some oil an hour before you meditate and you’ll notice a great change.
It helps wake you up and keep you alert
Forget about all of those synthetic products that are designed to wake you up such as coffee and energy drinks. Besides being bad for your health, they only give you a false feeling of alertness that will pass after a few hours. All you need to give you that boost of energy before your morning meditation is a good dose of hemp oil. Since it increases your levels of serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline you will be able to stay focused on the goal you’re trying to reach while meditating. And furthermore, it will keep you awake during the entire day, giving you just the right amount of energy you need.
