I love taking CBD before bed for a great nights sleep, and I love these bites even more to end my day with. This post is sponsored by Healist Naturals.
Who is Healist Naturals?
Healist Naturals is a CBD company that was founded on three core beliefs:
- Your Body is Enough
- Science Unlocks Nature
- Be the Positive Change
I really resonate with this brand and their message because I myself have personally come face-to-face with modern life depletion. If you’re like, Hannah, what are you talking about? Keep on reading and let me tell you.
As a modern woman living in Los Angeles County, I feel the constant pressure to always be competing to reach new heights. If I accomplish something, that’s great, but I always feel like I could be doing more.
Between working full time, having a part time job and having a second full time job- Lovely Delites, I have felt first hand the result of being overstimulated, exhausted, and ultimately off balance. As Healist Naturals points out- This is not ok.
I love how Healist Natural’s mission is to show you that you can take control of our own well-being. If nurtured properly, our mind and body have an incredible capacity to heal.
This is exactly why I take CBD, daily. As I mentioned before, I am always on go, go, go mode. By the time I lay down at night to go to sleep, I am still thinking about what needs to be done next. CBD allows me to take my mind off of things that I cannot worry about right then and there, releases the anxiety and allows me to have a full night of rested, uninterrupted sleep.
The best part is that when it comes time to wake up, I can- with ease. I don’t ever feel groggy, or “drugged out” like I have with other over-the-counter sleeping aids.
What exactly is CBD?
I get this question, a lot. I feel like some people still think CBD is such a taboo topic because it’s associated with marijuana which used to be so illegal and still is in some states!
Trust me, I get it. But Healist Naturals has a GREAT Q+A on their website that breaks down the stigma surrounding CBD. You can find all that information here, but I wanted to point out some highlights that I found interesting!
CBD or Cannabidiol is one of over 80+ natural phytocannabinoids (naturally occurring compounds) found in and extracted from hemp, a plant belonging to the Cannabis sativa species.
What’s the difference between hemp and marijuana?
While hemp and marijuana are technically the same species , they are legally defined by what types of cannabinoids they produce. Most importantly, hemp contains no more than 0.3% THC, the psychoactive compound found in higher concentrations in marijuana. Quite simply, it doesn’t get you high.
Hemp naturally contains higher levels of CBD, a non-psychoactive compound known for helping the human body restore balance and support overall wellness.*
Now Let’s Get Into The Recipe
CBD is great to take on it’s own. Like I mentioned before, I usually take it before bed to allow my body and mind to rest at ease. But you can also add CBD to any recipe for the same benefits.
That’s exactly what I did with these No-Bake Peppermint Fudge Bites. These bites are the perfect night cap to enjoy before bed. They are made with healthy and wholesome ingredients like dates, cacao, almond butter and of course, Healist Naturals Sleep Drops in Peppermint.
These fudge bites are the perfect blend of chocolate and peppermint and will leave you with a great night’s sleep. Follow the recipe below and let me know if you try them out!
