Here are some useful tips to help you get through the winter months
The wintertime can take a heavy toll on your body, from ski trips to festive walks, the cold weather can affect you in a number of ways. CBD is a great option to support your body this winter. So, why should we use CBD for winter wellness? Let’s find out…
CBD can be a great natural & organic defence solution against the pathogens we tend to encounter during winter periods; it has been shown to have antibacterial, antifungal and immune-modulating properties. A preliminary study also indicates that CBD may have the ability to positively regulate your immune system to help you fight off viruses . Furthermore, new research is also underway to help determine CBD’s healing effects on COVID-19 symptoms .
All of Biogenic's CBD Oils not only include the highest quality CBD, but also a botanical blend of terpenes and Ayurvedic ingredients such as Sweet Orange, Turmeric, Black Pepper, Oregano, Eucalyptus, Ho Wood & Juniper Berry, all of which are known for having a great effect on your immune system, effectively protecting against wintertime pathogens.
These combined ingredients make for a super immunity-boosting oil.

Cold weather leads to lower humidity which can leave your skin dry and irritated, this combined with the more regular use of the central heating can lead to some unpleasant skin issues. The outer layer of your skin is especially susceptible to dryness, chapping, windburn, and even sunburn on exposed areas during the winter season. CBD works to keep your skin’s main protector – the ECS – strong and healthy, in part by inhibiting the breakdown of a key receptor (CB2) so that healing occurs at a faster pace .

Joints are known for getting worse in the cold weather. Using CBD topically is a great way to target specific areas for pain relief. CBD could have the ability to help manage aches and pains by activating specific receptors in your brain to trigger the release of the pain-relieving neurotransmitter, serotonin .

SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder
SAD affects around 2 million people in the UK and can cause mood swings, feelings of low mood & less interest in your usual activities. Several studies have shown positive results for using CBD to reduce anxiety or to alleviate depression. Although hard clinical evidence is lacking, there is an abundance of data to suggest that CBD could help to alleviate anxiety and support healthy sleep patterns. Since stress, anxiety, and poor sleep are major contributors to the onset of depression, CBD could also have an indirect positive effect on SAD symptoms.
By introducing CBD into your morning & evening rituals, it could help to manage your mood by working with your Endocannabinoid System to restore balance mentally & physically. This can be incorporated through a number of ways including: gummies, oils, vapes and more!
