You may have heard of CBD before. This hemp byproduct has been in the eyes of the media for a couple of years now, and its use is an ever-evolving health trend that has gained the interest of celebrities and athletes alike. However, those are not the only people who benefit from CBD. There is a lot this substance can do to make our everyday lives easier, and that includes helping us do garden work.

But before we cover how CBD can make gardening easier, let’s take a look at the basics.

 

What is CBD and where can you get it?

CBD stands for Cannabidiol, and it is one of the most common active agents found in plants of the cannabis family. This includes hemp, of course, which is the legal term given to any strand of cannabis that has no psychotropic properties. That’s because hemp contains almost no THC, which is the substance responsible for making people high when they smoke weed.

For years marijuana users have understood that strands of cannabis with high amounts of CBD have better medicinal properties. And now that the growth and sale of hemp have been legalized throughout Europe and the UK, products containing CBD can be sold throughout all the aforementioned territories. And while some European countries still restrict who can access CBD, in the UK the product can be freely consumed by the general public. Most UK regulations limit who can sell CBD, not who can buy it.

You can find CBD in pharmacies, headshops, the occasional corner store, and online. There are stores that specialize in CBD products in the UK, but they aren’t that common. Now that you know where you can get CBD, let’s take a look into what it can do for you.

 

CBD and garden work

The health benefits of CBD are often exaggerated in the media. At its core, CBD has three main benefits: it works as an analgesic, an anti-inflammatory, and an anxiolytic. All three positive effects are achieved by the substance’s direct interaction with the endocannabinoid system, a network of neurotransmitters that all mammals have.

When it comes to gardening, here’s how you can use those benefits.

 

1 – Alleviate pain

Long hours working in the garden are bound to leave you sore all over. Since it is a natural analgesic, CBD can reduce that discomfort.

2 – Recover after a long workday

Long hours working in the garden are bound to leave you sore all over. Luckily, the analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can do more than just alleviate the discomfort. They can help your body recover, so you’ll be feeling fresh and energized the next day.

3 – Relax and enjoy the moment

CBD’s calming properties can help fight off both stress and anxiety. This means it’ll be a lot easier to worry less about things and actually enjoy the time you spend working in the garden.
