While using CBD oil is beneficial all year round, it can be of particular use during the colder months of the year. This is often when people struggle with issues such as painfully inflamed joints and seasonal problems such as lack of sun,  depression and anxiety.

Hemp products on their own are great and provide an array of benefits, made from the seeds of the plant - Omega-3s help to keep the moisture in the skin and can improve dry skin conditions. Other research shows that omega-3s increase airflow and protect the lungs from colds and respiratory infections by reducing inflammation but when you add CBD to the equation which has a higher concentration of properties/ terpenes and compounds than of hemp seed oil  - the effects are dramatically increased and this allows you to really take advantage and get ahead in the winter months.

Here are some common issues Hemp & CBD can play a part in.


Anxiety can affect a person’s ability to do their job. As winter goes on, they may feel even more need to stay at home and avoid interacting with others. The cold weather drives people inside and increases their sense of loneliness. When people take CBO oil, they often find that the oil helps them feel anxious and more capable of coping with the world around them no matter the weather.


Arthritis is a serious medical condition. Over time, joints can become worn. As they do so, this can cause temporary or even constant pain. Many people who suffer from arthritis find that it more easily flairs up during the winter. In doing so, it can make it difficult for the sufferer to do activities necessary during the winter such as clear out snow and remove ice their driveways. Using a CBD oil/capsules and balms/creams can combat the worst effects of arthritis. This makes it easier for people to move around without feeling pain.

Chronic Pain/Inflammation 

Chronic pain is common during the winter. The cold can get into a person’s joints and stay there. People with pain find it hard to function. They may find it hard to go to work, get household chores done and do the things they like to do best. Using CBD can help overcome this problem and feel better. When they let go of their chronic pain, they can enjoy winter more.


When the sun sets early for months, people feel as if the light has gone out of their own lives. People may feel depressed with less natural light. Those who feel unhappy during the winter should think about using CBD to help them combat the effects of winter darkness.

Skin Problems

Winter can be especially harsh on the skin. Wind hits the face and destroys delicate skin cells. Lips gets chapped with ease when outside all day long. A person’s hands and feel may get red and sore. This is where using CBD oil can really help. Apply to the skin and before leaving home. It can also help reduce acne outbreaks that can be even more painful in winter.
