Even though Cyber Monday sales do not require you to venture out into the cold and brave the hoards of people all searching for the same sacred items on Black Friday, there are still plenty of elements of frustration. Shopping irritated can quickly turn the jolliest of souls into a Grinch. Turn your gift-finding adventure into a CBD Cyber Monday and be merry again!
Cyber Monday Origins
It is hard to imagine a world without Amazon and eBay, but in reality, online shopping has only been around since the mid-1990’s and back then, there were only a comparative handful of people purchasing anything online. With dial-up internet service, transactions weren’t exactly a quick one or two click process (did anyone else just hear the unmistakable dial-up noise in their head?)
By 2005 Amazon, eBay and other e-commerce sites were well-established and the National Retail Federation had noticed an increase in sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving. Their theory was that people were making purchases from their computers at work where internet speeds may be faster and they would not risk their children or spouses sneaking a peek at their gifts. The phrase “Cyber Monday” caught on quickly, and holiday shopping has never been the same.
The Benefits of CBD and Shopping
The benefits of CBD oil are countless. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive plant compound of cannabis sativa. CBD interacts with receptors in the body’s natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis (balance) and wellbeing.
Sometimes when it comes to shopping, the joy of giving gets lost in expectations of gifts. This is especially true when things don’t go as planned. Instead of smashing your computer or smartphone in frustration, here are some ways that CBD Cyber Monday can help you be more zen and optimistic about your shopping experience.
CBD Cyber Monday Pre-Game
One of the keys to successfully accessing the benefits of CBD is to time your serving or application. This will help promote peak performance in whatever you are trying to achieve. Everyone has a different response time and ideal serving size depending on their body and needs. CBD is non-addictive and non-psychoactive, so play with your serving size ahead of time to figure out what works best.
The Benefits of CBD on Cyber Monday
Here is why CBD is great for giving you a better holiday shopping experience. We hear that even the elves are using Receptra!
1. Maintain Energy
One of the benefits of CBD oil is helping you to find energy and focus. This could be important if those deals are starting sometime between midnight or the crack of dawn. Wake up and get clicking! CBD Cyber Monday is best begun with a serving of CBD oil in advance.
2. Relieve Discomfort
If you plan on spending more than 45 minutes or so seated in front your device, it may be a good idea to apply Receptra Targeted Topical onto your shoulders, neck and lower back to keep you from getting sore in that hunched position. CBD interacts with the receptors under the skin to provide relief. Once the aches set in, shopping gets much more difficult.
3. Manage Distractions
Distractions can slow down the shopping process. Luckily you do not have to worry about any uncontrollable cravings mid-shopping. CBD does not interact the same way as its cousin THC, and will not give you the munchies. In fact, CBD often dulls the effects of THC and provides a greater sense of focus. Onto the next shopping cart!
4. Boost Mood
Things don’t always go as planned. Items may be sold out. Shipping costs may be ridiculous or you may not be able to find the discount code you were looking for. These things can make your shopping experience go from “this is tolerable” to “Everyone is getting coal in their stocking.” One of the benefits of CBD is that there are endocannabinoid receptors in the mood-controlling portion of the brain. CBD helps to calm rising cortisol levels and restore balance as well as holiday merriment.
A Merrier Shopping Experience
Going in with a plan can make a big difference. This doesn’t mean just having a great list of websites, gifts, and deals. Making sure you take care of yourself is an important key to a happy holiday shopping adventure. Even if that adventure takes place at your kitchen table, in between projects at work, on the phone while you are at the gym, or wherever you may be.
