Even though Cyber Monday sales do not require you to venture out into the cold and brave the hoards of people all searching for the same sacred items on Black Friday, there are still plenty of elements of frustration. Shopping irritated can quickly turn the jolliest of souls into a Grinch. Turn your gift-finding adventure into a CBD Cyber Monday and be merry again!
Cyber Monday Origins
It is hard to imagine a world without Amazon and eBay, but in reality, online shopping has only been around since the mid-1990's and back then, there were only a comparative handful of people purchasing anything online. With dial-up internet service, transactions weren't exactly a quick one or two click process (did anyone else just hear the unmistakable dial-up noise in their head?)
By 2005 Amazon, eBay and other e-commerce sites were well-established and the National Retail Federation had noticed an increase in sales on the Monday following Thanksgiving. Their theory was that people were making purchases from their computers at work where internet speeds may be faster and they would not risk their children or spouses sneaking a peek at their gifts. The phrase “Cyber Monday” caught on quickly, and holiday shopping has never been the same.
The Benefits of CBD and Shopping
The benefits of CBD oil are countless. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-psychoactive plant compound of cannabis sativa. CBD interacts with receptors in the body's natural endocannabinoid system to promote homeostasis (balance) and wellbeing.
Sometimes when it comes to shopping, the joy of giving gets lost in expectations of gifts. This is especially true when things don't go as planned. Instead of smashing your computer or smartphone in frustration, here are some ways that CBD Cyber Monday can help you be more zen and optimistic about your shopping experience.
CBD Cyber Monday Pre-Game
One of the keys to successfully accessing the benefits of CBD is to time your serving or application. This will help promote peak performance in whatever you are trying to achieve. Everyone has a different response time and ideal serving size depending on their body and needs. CBD is non-addictive and non-psychoactive, so play with your serving size ahead of time to figure out what works best.
