CBD – A Parent’s Secret Weapon

Updated: Aug 9, 2022

Life as a parent doesn't leave a lot of room for self-care. Raising a human is hard work, a job in itself. And like any job, parents deserve a break every once in a while. Work-life-parenting balance is a struggle and our fearless leader, Dani Matthew, knows that struggle all too well. But don't fret! We have a few life hacks for you to get some R&R and still be a super-parent with a little help from this secret weapon--CBD!

Making time when you feel like you have none

One piece of advice Dani has offered about parenting is that it’s important to have a structured routine for both you and your children. We know what you're thinking: Who even HAS the time to think ahead? But trust us. Laying out your whole day in front of you with time slots for every activity, errand, and appointment, can help you also find the gaps in the day, or even set a whole day to rest and recharge.

CBD to fuel the mind

You've got the whole day planned to the minute, but your tank feels empty. Your brain needs fuel too and a CBD tincture is great for that. At any moment of the day that you feel your tank is running low, CBD will be there to gas you up. For breakfast, before errands, or before that trip to San Clemente’s Linda Lane Park, take CBD with you to get your mind and body ready.

Soothing the body with CBD

One day of hard parenting can do a number on your back, knees–and all the muscles. Let CBD handle that. To get deep into those aches, try our CBD Roll-on. Hemp-derived CBD combined with menthol and camphor all in one easy roll-on to massage as it provides cooling relief. If you would prefer menthol free, our CBD Peppermint salve has limited ingredients and still provides comfort for soreness.

Learning to Relax

Trying to relax is a paradox. Relaxing is letting go and doing nothing, but with intention. This may need discipline when you’re constantly answering demands. Even if you find a way to keep your mind fueled and the muscle discomfort to a minimum, those moments you plan out for relaxation should be spent truly resting.

If you’re finding it difficult to relax, start with deep breathing. Focus on breathing in and out and clear your mind of everything else. Doing this for at least 5 minutes can do wonders for your stress levels. Closing your eyes and taking a mental vacation can also help you unwind. Imagine a a place you enjoy, like taking a hike on the San Clemente Pier or playing a nice game of golf. Let your muscles relax and enjoy a moment of zen.

Parenting is the hardest and most rewarding job there is. There is nothing like the joy that your smiling child can bring. You are their whole world, their super hero. But even Avengers had tools and a lot of help from each other. CBD is just one tool that can provide a little relief during your day to day. Plan ahead to better manage your time and remember that doing nothing is sometimes the best thing you can do for yourself.
