How CBD Helps Calm My Anxiety When Traveling

This post is sponsored by Veritas Farms. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I love traveling with my family! But that doesn't mean that anxiety doesn't kick in as soon as the big travel day arrives. I run around getting all the last minute things ready. Did I pack everything we need? Where are the passports? Did I grab the snacks for the plane? Will we make it in on time to catch our flight? Don't forget to take the kids to the bathroom before we board the plane. I know I'm forgetting something! These and a million other thoughts are running through my mind every time we get ready to leave on our next trip. I literally feel sick to my stomach every single time. My mind racing. My head pounding. I feel like a mess! I stress about everything and anything. It usually ends up affecting my mood and the entire family feels it. That's why I recently decided to give Veritas Farms CBD products a try. Read on to find out how CBD helps my anxiety when traveling.

The more we travel, the more I realize that I need something to help take off the edge. After a few super stressful trips, I realized that my anxiety was an all time hight and I needed to find a way to alleviate my feelings of anxiety and stress without taking medication that would make me feel loopy and jittery -- like the prescribed meds I've tried before. Then I discovered Veritas Farms and their Full Spectrum CBD Products and they just seem like a safe option to try! 

Now every time I pack my passport, I make sure to also pack my favorite Veritas Farms products!

How CBD Makes Travel Less Stressful?

CBD offers so many benefits that it's no wonder many people take CBD oil with them when they travel. CBD can help relieve conditions such as anxiety, chronic pain, nausea, sleep disorders and more. The calming properties of CBD seem like the perfect solution to dealing with the inevitable stresses of travel -- long lines, chaos at the airport, flight delays, loss of luggage, and kid meltdowns, just to name a few. 

Studies have shown that CBD interacts with our body's endocannabinoid system and helps to regulate mood, temperature and even appetite. When you are stressed out, CBD interacts with your endocannabinoid system and activates the serotonin receptors in order to reduce anxiety and stress. Serotonin is a mood enhancing hormone that is also part of our endocannabinoid system. 

What is CBD?

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (or THC) also found in cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. In other words, it doesn't make you high (like THC does). CBD is a naturally occurring substance that can give you a feeling of relaxation, calm, and wellness. CBD is currently used in oils, lotions, balms, and edibles like gummies.
Full spectrum hemp oil is extracted from the flowers and leaves of hemp plants.
How CBD Calms My Anxiety When Traveling
Recently I learned about Veritas Farms CBD products and decided to try them. Now every time we get ready to travel I'm better prepared. I use Veritas Farms Full Spectrum CBD Tincture and drop a full dropper into my mouth as soon as I wake up on the day of our departure. Sometimes I even have time to whip up my favorite Easy CBD Berry Strawberry Smoothie and take a little time to sip and enjoy it before all the craziness begins. Within moments I feel calmer and better focused. What's remarkable is that it makes me feel calm. My mind isn't racing anymore. I'm able to function without all that travel anxiety that usually pushes me over the edge.


CBD Also Helps Me Sleep Better During Travel

Another CBD product I love to use during travel are the Veritas Farms CBD Gummies. Once we make it onto the plane I feel relieved knowing that we're on our way. Still, it's not always easy for me to relax or even take advantage of the flight time and grab some shut eye. That's why I turn to these sweet little gummy snacks. I munch on a few and soon start feeling more relaxed. Even if the kids are fussing or won't get to sleep, the added Melatonin helps me feel relaxed and less stressed. Eventually the kids get settled in and the CBD Gummies help me get to sleep so I can feel better rested by the time we land at our destination. 

How CBD Treats My Aches & Pains During Travel

If you also follow me on my family lifestyle blog, you know that I'm a chronic pain warrior. I don't let the pain stop me from traveling with my family but that doesn't mean it's an easy thing to do. It's actually a huge challenge! I don't always feel well or strong enough to make the long treks. My family makes a lot of adjustments to accommodate and give me the time I need to deal with the everyday aches and pains. However, lately I've been using CBD products to help alleviate my aches and pains and it's helped tremendously.

In addition to using Veritas Farms Full Spectrum CBD Tincture on the day of travel, I also use it daily while traveling. This gives me the feeling of well being that I need in order to make travel more enjoyable. The Veritas Farms Cannabinoid Rich Hemp Gummies help me achieve better sleep and I feel better rested during our trips. I have a few of the CBD gummies before going to bed each night and it helps me sleep better. Better sleep means less pain for me! But the product I probably turn most to when I feel those pesky aches and pains coming on is the Veritas Farms Full Spectrum CBD Salve. This topical salve is perfect for rubbing on my tired feet, painful joints, or achy back at the end of a long day. This also alleviates the pain so I can rest better.

Can You Take CBD Products On a Plane?

CBD offers many therapeutic benefits to travelers. Still, many travelers worry about traveling with CBD products. Let me tell you that CBD is safe to travel with. Unlike marijuana, it is legal to travel with CBD because CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, and it does not cause you to get high. Therefore, you should have no problems getting passed airport security with CBD products in your suitcase or carry on.

However, I do advise you to check the label of your CBD products before traveling. Ensure that the products you are traveling with contain less than 0.3% THC content. Reputable CBD brands such as my favorite Veritas Farms offer CBD product with THC content of 0.3% . Any CBD products with a higher THC content of higher than 0.3% are illegal under federal law in most states. Therefore, traveling with product of higher THC content could cause problems with the Travel Security Administration (TSA).

In Conclusion

Travel is fun but it can be stressful. There's no denying that! If you're looking for a new way to alleviate anxiety when traveling with kids you should definitely give CBD a try. I can't say enough about how it's changed the way I travel. Now every time we travel I don't leave home without my favorite Veritas Farms CBD Products. Including their Full Spectrum CBD Lip Balm which is also great to moisturize lips before and after a long day playing in the sun during our travels!
