We tend to think of the cooking and gift-giving holidays as particularly difficult times of the year. But if you think about it, Halloween presents challenges of its own.
Can you make it through the trick-or-treat walk around the neighborhood without straining yourself? Even when dressed like angels, maybe your kids are acting like little devils.
Will you manage to get through the whole night in those super-high heels? Are you ready for the stress of meeting new people at a party?
cbdMD, a provider of premium CBD oil products, can provide a little extra support so that you can enjoy a spooktacular Halloween!
We love our children to the moon and back, but they’re often indecisive, impatient, and prone to meltdowns.
It’s just the way it is, and it’s going to be stressful.
For instance, how many times have your children changed their minds about their costumes? Heck, sometimes they do it at the last minute. Everyone’s all dressed up and you think you’re finally ready to go. All of a sudden your son absolutely detests Spiderman. This hatred burns with the fury of a thousand stars. Why? What changed in the past 90 seconds?
Once you’ve figured out how to transform Spidey into The Flash (somehow), it’s time to hit the streets so your kids can extort candy from your neighbors. After all, trick or treat is just a polite way of saying, “Give me a snack or I’ll vandalize your house, old man!”
Once you’re out and about, danger lurks around every corner. Some people take Halloween seriously. Their yards are minefields full of things that jump and make horrible sounds – all designed to scare the shirt off anyone who dares enter.
Adults usually have fun with these kinds of things. But a chainsaw-wielding mannequin under a strobe light can be a bit much for an apple-cheeked toddler waddling around in a pumpkin costume.
Let the wailing commence.
On top of this, it’s easy to wear our kids out. Unless All Hallow’s Eve falls on a weekend (it doesn’t this year, by the way), the kids have already had a long day. By the time evening comes around, the little sweeties can be on a hair trigger.
Finally, if you have more than one child, there’s a real possibility of hostilities over candy distribution once you get home. You can call in crisis negotiators from the U.S. State Department if you like, or simply choose the nuclear option – eat all of the candy when they go to bed.
Through all of this, you’ll need to keep your cool. Uncorking a bottle of pinot at 3 pm is one option, but CBD may serve as a more appropriate alternative. Alternatively, you can finish things off with cbdMD gummies. They’re just as tasty as stolen candy, with all the properties of CBD.
Many people, including athletes in high-stress sports like PGA Golfer Bubba Watson and others, turn to CBD tinctures from cbdMD for support when the going gets tough.
All jokes aside, Halloween with the kids is a lot of fun. The holiday is also a great opportunity for us to leave the kids with a trusted sitter, get out, and cut loose a little. But even parties, haunted houses, or that rare night out on the town can present a few issues.
First, let’s talk about some of the pressure that comes with social occasions.
You’re not the only one who genuinely wants to get out into the thick of things but is reluctant to do so. There are millions of us. Introverted extroverts, assemble!
Let’s see if this sounds familiar.
Now that you have kids, you don’t really get out as much as you used to. Your friends invite you out to a costume party at a place you’ve never been.
Between now and then, you have to put together a costume, and you’ll be upset if it doesn’t slay. After all, what’s the point of dressing up if you’re not going to make it memorable?
You’re probably going to end up meeting a lot of strangers dressed up like sexy cats, hot dogs, and borderline-funny puns. It’s probably going to be hot, and some energy vampire is going to suck the life out of you by prattling on about his financial-planning business.
“Here. Take my card and get in touch. We’ll set you up with a blah, blah, blah.”
Again, that bottle of pinot’s looking really good right now, isn’t it? But you can stay in the game and get some valuable social time without getting wine-drunk. A CBD tincture oil or capsule regimen can be helpful in the lead up to what should be a great evening out – and beyond.
Other CBD products to have on hand are CBD bath bombs, gummies, and topicals formulated with a range of ingredients that are known to help with pain or inflammation.
We’re not kids anymore. Being on your feet all night in an uncomfortable costume may very well wreck you.
We get it. The black 4.5” heels and floor-length, bodycon dress you picked out for your Morticia Addams costume are going to look incredible. Rock ’em.
But when you get home, you’re going to feel like your feet, ankles, knees, and hips were subject to a classified enhanced-interrogation experiment.
Don’t worry about it – cbdMD has you covered.
Start with the CBD bath bomb. Let all those lovely, calming botanicals soak into your skin. You can then follow with some soothing cbdMD Recover – a creamy CBD lotion formulated with high concentrations of anti-inflammation compounds like arnica, vitamin B6, and MSM.
And fellas, we know you’re all Tommy Tough-Guy and stuff. But a hot bath is relaxing. And it just feels good. If you have a problem with that, you can take your grievances to Jorge Masvidal.
He’s the man with the fastest knockout in UFC history and he’s fighting Nate Diaz for the Welterweight Championship on November 2.
Jorge loves cbdMD bath bombs. Be more like Jorge.
And if you still need some help winding down after such an exciting night, CBD PM may act as the final piece to the puzzle. Formulated with melatonin, well-known for its sleep benefits, CBD PM is a specialized tincture that’s perfect for winding down around bedtime.
And between the kids, work, and those rare moments of partying, you’re going to need all the rest you can get.
