Growing up, you perhaps had a cold glass of milk at school or before you went to bed in the evenings, thanks to its health benefits – a great source of calcium, milk is fantastic for bones. However, what milk has traditionally never been helpful for is helping with anxiety, stress and physical pain. However, that could be about to change, courtesy of a brand new CBD milk product.
Relax by Rawligion is an intriguing hemp-based organic milk, infused with CBD oil. Many food and beverage companies have tried to muscle in on the CBD market, and the dairy industry is proving no exception. In addition to easing pain and relieving stress, Relax is also an effective sleep agent.
This milk is superb for your all-round health, and contains hemp seeds, coconut oil, vanilla, dates and cashew nuts as well as CBD.
Rawligion development consultant and psychotherapist, Michael Isted, has said that the health benefits of CBD were the key as to why the company decided to make an infused milk.
CBD milk boasts several medicinal qualities
This hemp-derived CBD milk is non-psychoactive, as it doesn’t contain any of the hallucinogenic cannabinoid THC, or other psychoactive cannabinoids found in cannabis.
However, while recreational cannabis consumers may not be interested in Relax, those looking for marijuana’s medicinal qualities will enjoy the benefits of the CBD in this milk. Cannabidiol (CBD) helps the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to maintain homeostasis. Pain perception, sleep cycles, mood and immune response are all regulated by the ECS.
The ECS is made up of millions of cannabinoid receptors and proteins known as endocannabinoids. These receptors are found all over the body, although many – and particularly the CB1 receptors – are situated in the brain and the nervous system.
The medical potential of CBD is no longer just being realized by the cannabis community. Lawmakers in many states have passed legislation permitting the compound or the cannabis plant entirely, while the World Health Organization (WHO) recently stated that cannabidiol has no abuse potential. The federal government even has a patent on CBD as a neuroprotectant and antioxidant.
The CBD in Relax is the main reason why the product is so beneficial, however the other ingredients also offer plenty. Some have commented that the flavor of Rawligion’s milk is quite like almond milk, with a hint of cannabis. This sounds pretty tasty, but just how effective is Relax?
Unsurprisingly, Rawligion founder John Taba says that Relax works, and that many customers have contacted the company about the calming effect of the milk. However, to get the most from it and the specific results you desire, Taba recommends drinking carefully.
Taba speaks of how it’s important for people to be “mindful” when drinking Relax. When he says this he’s not throwing spiritual guff at us, but simply pointing out that those who pay attention to how much they drink – and how they feel before and after having the milk – will find it more useful than people who are just drinking it for the sake of it and hoping it has an impact.
