We often hear the question, “Can CBD be beneficial for me even if I’m healthy?” In short, YES!
CBD works by interacting with the human Endocannabinoid System (ECS), the system in the body responsible for promoting and maintaining homeostasis. The ECS is commonly referred to as the “master regulator” within the body and plays a huge part in the coordination of numerous bodily processes.
Research shows the the endocannabinoid system can influence the following:
- Immune response
- Motor control
- Bone health
- Muscle development
- Reproductive function
- Cardiovascular function
- Skin health
- Nerve function
CBD helps these systems and functions work at capacity, giving you a better overall feeling of wellness and also acts to prevent future health issues. So, even if you’re in the best shape of your life, have no physical ailments and live a life without major stresses, you can still benefit from CBD.
Read on to find out more about how CBD helps healthy people live even healthier lives.
How CBD Benefits Healthy People
Even the healthiest thing of persons face challenges in every day life. One of the greatest things about CBD is that it can help with just about everything that comes your way.
Almost 80% of patients with anxiety and sleeping problems reported a decrease in their issues after including CBD into their daily regimen. In a 2019 study published in The Permanente Journal 72 adults underwent CBD therapy for about a month and the vast majority found improved sleep. The results lasted for the entirety of the trial.
People have been utilizing cannabis for years as a means to get a good night’s rest but using broad spectrum THC-free products (Purelix Wellness!) offer benefits without the mind-altering elements found in marijuana. CBD also provides additional benefits while you slumber, like taming inflammation and correcting digestive functions. Our CBD and Melatonin Softgels pair two natural elements to give you restful nights.
CBD is now being used as an ingredient in many beauty products, including everything from hair products to skin creams. CBD can help treat a number of skin conditions, like psoriasis and eczema and is even found to reduce the signs of aging. Because CBD inhibits the production of oils in the skin it is also an excellent anti-acne medication.
A person’s skin is often viewed as a reflection of their lifestyle and can reflect diet, adherence to exercise, and stress levels. As a rule, those with healthy lifestyles will have good skin. However, just because you’re a healthy person doesn’t mean you’re protected from skin eruptions, rashes, or wrinkles. CBD-infused creams and salves work wonders for the skin, and can reduce the risk of these skin diseases and maladies. CBD is now an ingredient in cleansers, masks, moisturizers, serums and lip balms. These phytocannabinoid-rich skin care products are said to be extremely effective in maintaining and creating the healthy and flawless skin that everyone wants. CBD’s incredible regenerative and anti-inflammatory properties help create and maintain smooth, comfortable, clear skin.

Indeed, many people who suffer from anxiety use CBD in addition to prescribed anxiety and/or depression prescription medications. NOTE – Always speak to your doctor before beginning a CBD regimen if you’re currently taking prescription medication for anxiety or depression.

Happy pets, happy pet owners!
According to the American Pet Products Association, we spent an estimated $75 billion (yes, with a “B”) on our pets in 2019. Of that amount, $16 billion was spent on over-the-counter medicines. How much was spent on CBD, you ask? Well, in 2018 pet owners spent about $31 million on CBD products for their animals and in 2019, that number increased 946% to $321 million!!!! We think you’ll agree that an increase of that size is an indicator that the products purchased are working, and working well.
As Americans are discovering that benefits of CBD for themselves, so are they passing those benefits on to their four-legged companions. CBD helps pets by supporting calm dispositions, joint and connective tissue health and topicals help ease skin allergies and irritations. Purelix Wellness offers a whole line of tinctures, chews and topicals formulated especially with your pets in mind!
But what do the experts say?
Although there are recent laboratory studies and preliminary reports showing promising results and highlighting CBD’s safety and pain-relieving effects, well-designed studies that offer solid medical evidence simply don’t yet exist. It logically follows that there is no rock solid conclusion regarding the effectiveness of CBD not because it doesn’t work but simply because definitive studies haven’t yet been undertaken and the resulting data isn’t yet available.
