When winter starts to drone on, it's easy to feel like burying yourself in bed and waiting out the long nights and cold weather. And even though hibernation may sound like the best option, burrowing away from the world can quickly worsen winter blues. There are different strategies for pushing through symptoms of seasonal affective disorder, or SAD, which affects around 10 million Americans. Getting more sunlight, taking antidepressants, and pursuing counseling are common treatments.

CBD, however, is a natural alternative that can promote holistic wellness that may elevate mood, energy levels, and other physical functions. Here's a closer look at a few ways CBD may brighten you up, even during winter's darkest days.

Serene Sleep

Cold weather might make winter snoozing easy for some. For others, natural circadian rhythms are confounded by different day and night cycles, leading to bouts of insomnia. Fortunately, CBD shows promise as a sleep aid in studies, and many consumers find it can help them both fall asleep and stay asleep. A product like New Phase Blends Sleep CBD Oil may prove extra effective since it's specially formulated with melatonin, a hormone that controls your sleep-wake cycle.

Like all of its CBD products, New Phase Blends created its Sleep tincture with high-quality, premium hemp extract. Each 30-milliliter Sleep bottle contains 2,000 milligrams of "broad-spectrum" CBD (making it THC-free), so it just takes a few drops under the tongue to get the benefits of a calm, natural sleep, even through winter's nocturnal downturns.

Boost Your Energy

Low-energy vibes are a lousy way to kickstart a new year. Consider Go CBD Oil by New Phase Blends to bump up your vigor. The tincture is made with synephrine, a natural alkaloid found in bitter oranges that can feel as stimulating as caffeine and may even promote weight loss by increasing fat oxidation rates during exercise. Go CBD Oil is organic and THC-free, and with 500 mg of CBD per bottle, a few drops can help you feel more energetic, focused and ready to get moving.

Hydrating Solutions

Nothing dries us out quite like dry winter air. Our skin suffers most obviously, along with lips, hair, and nails. But thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can help reduce dryness and irritation, and as an all-natural, hemp-derived product, it's safe for most skin types. New Phase Blends Pure High Strength Vegan CBD Softgels are an excellent method for supporting hydration from within. For those who suffer from acne, moisturizing Glow CBD Acne Cream delivers a powerful way to reduce redness and swelling, thanks to CBD and the addition of salicylic acid, a compound that naturally fights acne breakouts.

Less Pain, More Pleasure

Physical activity is a great way to combat your winter doldrums. The problem comes with the stiff, achy after-effects of a good workout. Soothe Topical CBD Cream can be an effective way to reduce localized pain and inflammation quickly. The New Phase Blend cream is available in three concentrations — 500, 1,000, or 2,000 mg — to correspond with the intensity of your pain. Plus, it's made with jojoba oil, beeswax, and lavender for you to rub on smoothly and support CBD's naturally soothing, antioxidant properties.

Reduce Anxiety, Naturally

Let's face it: gray winter days can be downright depressing, a gateway to anxiety, insomnia, and other conditions. But among growing medical research, one 2019 Permanente Journal study showed that CBD "may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders" and was largely well tolerated in nearly all participants. Because New Phase Blends Pure CBD Gummies are made in higher concentrations of 45 mg per gummy cube, they can offer maximum relief from anxiety. The cannabinoids CBDA and CBGA are formulated into Pure full-spectrum gummies, too, for added immune support.

Start Your CBD Journey

CBD shows lots of promise for mental and physical wellness, but many Americans aren't familiar enough to know where or how to begin. A savvy way to sample New Phase Blends products is with its CBD Starter Kit Bundle. The bundle includes a top-selling trio of goods: CBD Balm, CBD Gummies (Sleep or Pure), and CBD Tincture (with trace THC or THC-free), all made from organic, independent-lab-tested hemp. As an added benefit, the bundle includes a free copy of New Phase Blends' "CBD Essentials" eBook, a 26-page education in CBD basics and the hemp industry.
