During this mental health awareness week, we’re highlighting the effects lock-down can have, not only on supporters but on the players too.
Anxiety is a key element of mental health and Saints defender Michael Clark has taken to his blog to outline the importance of ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind.’
Cannabidiol, commonly known as CBD, is one of the fastest growing products and industries growing today. But what exactly is CBD and is its purified isolate form something you should be considering? First, let’s look at why people take CBD.
Derived from Hemp or Marijuana, CBD contains no THC meaning that it does not get you “high” or “buzzed” in any way like Cannabis does. This means that you can get all of the benefits of medical marijuana without actually having to consume a substance that has psychoactive properties. This is one of the reasons it is growing so quickly in popularity globally, it does not get you high but you get the benefits nonetheless.
Why is CBD consumed? There is still much research ongoing regarding its efficacy for a variety of different chronic illnesses and ailments but the current verdict is promising. CBD is taken regularly by patients suffering from: chronic pain, anxiety/depression, trouble sleeping or insomnia, as an appetite stimulator, to name a few.

It is growing in popularity, especially in the United States, where the opiate epidemic has been largely caused by powerful prescription narcotics patients take to manage pain. CBD allows you to manage pain with no risk of addiction or death due to overdose. It works because CBD also reduces inflammation a major cause of join pain and other forms of chronic pain.
CBD comes in different forms. Edible gummies, lollipops, pills, tinctures, oils, creams, and isolate powder. Which brings us to our questions, “is CBD isolate right for you?”. CBD iso as it is commonly referred to is roughly 99.9% potent with CBD. Meaning there are no fillers, additives, or other compounds which you may not want to ingest. Its purity also makes it very easy to dose properly as you know exactly how much you are getting per drop or micro-gram.
Its potency makes it convenient. You can dose easily and the beauty of CBD isolate powder is that it can be added to just about anything you consume. Being tasteless, iso is commonly added to teas, smoothies, yogurts, ice creams, oatmeal, power bowls, and many others. It is up to you to determine how you want to take it, but that is also why CBD isolate makes such a good fit for most users. You have loads of choice when it comes to how you’ll take it because it is so versatile.
So if you’re in the market for CBD isolate, there are a few things you can do. The most common is to buy it online and have it shipped right to your doorstep. This is great because many places that sell CBD products may not have isolate and that is why you should probably browse online for the best quality and best selection to suit your needs.
All in all, CBD is growing ever more in popularity on a daily basis and that market is poised to hit over 20 billion dollars by 2020. See what all the hype is about and be sure you start with a low dose to see how you individually respond to it. Get into a CBD routine and you may find you are no longer reaching for ibuprofen or aspirin (or something stronger) to manage your join pain or other chronic pain.
“If something isn’t right, look to fix or improve that situation. It’s not going to get any better whilst parked in your mind and will gradually eat away at you. Whether that’s seeking help from a professional, or even taking it upon yourself to read up on ways to improve and become more positive”.Michael Clark
