Getting the mind to calm down, be still, and meditate is difficult. We have come to rely on tv or our phones to “unwind,” but we may be doing the complete opposite of what is needed. For those days that just seem too busy or hectic, try to be still and meditate.
It may seem difficult or even impossible at first, but it’s a great tool to create a healthy mind and even boost your overall health.
Fortunately, Mother Nature has herbal-help at hand. Hemp’s relaxing and calming qualities make it an ideal meditation aid, supporting you to get focussed, mindful and clear.
Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food’s Full-Spectrum CBD products come from the finest hemp flowers and leaves, grown naturally. Potent phytonutrients synergize in a powerful range of healing-hemp products to help the mind and body unwind.
Stress and Meditation
Effective meditation requires a calm focus that’s impossible to access when feeling fearful. You can't 'force' the mind into a higher state of awareness while experiencing overwhelming sensations of nervousness or anxiety in the body.
Many people write-off meditation or consider themselves a failure, when unable to access the relaxed mental state that’s required. Meditation can improve sleep, which can enhance your mood, the way you deal with your day to day problems, and help create an overall peaceful environment.
Finding a pragmatic way to focus the mind is critical for mental mastery. But, the fears, concerns, and stresses of modern life are at an epidemic level right now, and that can’t be ignored. Accepting where you are, is the first significant step on the journey.
Anchoring meditation practices around self-love facilitates the inner-peace needed to relax the mind. Hemp has a history of making meditation easier; promoting awareness and focus while keeping thoughts in the moment (and not dwelling on past incidents or future concerns).
Hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) has a focusing, relaxing, and mood-boosting effect. The sense of calm that CBD produces helps people overcome anxiety so they can sit calmly, and focus, on inner sensations. Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food Full-Spectrum CBD is packed with powerful hemp CBD extract, proven to help you relax.

- Feel COMPASSION for whatever arises, WELCOME, and simply NOTICE.

Compassion frees the mind from the need to ‘get it right’. With practice, meditation can control anxiety, and improve emotional health. Remember that this is your personal journey, you can go at your pace and based on your needs. Dr. Sebi’s Cell Food Full-Spectrum CBD can assist your progress by facilitating a mentally receptive and relaxed state of mind.
Self-awareness and attention span are increased, while addictions reduce when you spend time meditating on being kind, gentle, and loving to yourself. Noticing, allowing, and encouraging the sensations, emotions, and feelings in your body steers your mind towards growth. Let hemp help you get into the zone, switch down a gear and find the calm to meditate.
