Join us in celebrating a week of happiness here at FAB CBD! Did you know that this year National CBD Day falls on August 8? Well, we did, and we’re going to give you some great ideas to try so that you can join us in preparing for our week-long celebration of National CBD Day! Let’s begin by talking about some things that make you happy.
Things That Make You Happy WeekWhen it comes to things that make you happy, don’t overcomplicate it. The smallest and simplest activities sometimes have the greatest, most positive impact on our happiness. To kick off our celebration, we’re giving you a few simple, fun activities that will keep you smiling all week long.
Social Distance Walk With A FriendThe simple act of taking a walk with a friend and connecting with nature will do wonders for your mood. There’s just something about being out in nature that’s calming, soothing, and uplifting. Instead of hitting the same old walking paths, why not grab a friend and hike some trails where you’ll be sure to be socially distanced from any crowds of people. Get out and enjoy all that nature has to offer by identifying different types of trees and plants while you’re out. While you’re hiking, take a moment to enjoy the warm sun on your skin and the scent of the fresh, clean air, the sound of the earth beneath your feet, the song of the birds in the trees, and the sound of the breeze as it rustles through the leaves of the trees. Walks also give you the opportunity to share. While you’re sharing inspiring and intellectually stimulating conversation with your friend, why not share some food or treats? Fruit, granola bars, and other healthy snacks are perfect for sharing while on a walk. While you’re at it, you can also share some tasty CBD gummies. Let your friend in on your favorite healthy treat by offering them one of FAB’s CBD Chews. FAB’s Chews are THC-free and a delicious and fun way to have a CBD treat when you’re out hiking the trails. Each gummy is gluten-free, non-GMO, fruit flavored, and vegan. These delicious and fun gummies are perfect for when you’re out and about and need a post-walk/hike recovery supplement.
Share Your Favorite FAB Product With A Friend On This National CBD DayHappiness is sharing! If you have a favorite FAB product that you want to share with your friend, then go for it! Even though CBD is quickly growing in popularity, there are still those out there who don’t know that much about it. When you let others participate in something that makes you happy, your own happiness will grow. Likewise, when you share your favorite CBD product, not only are you giving others the opportunity to try CBD, you’re also educating them about the many health-boosting benefits that CBD has to offer. FAB has lots of amazing CBD products to choose from. Which will you share? Choose from FAB’s top-shelf line full-spectrum CBD oils in a variety of flavors like citrus, mint, berry, vanilla, and natural in varying strengths, FAB’s fun and fruity CBD Chews, fresh-smelling, non-greasy CBD topical cream, or phenomenal CBD-free Green Superfood in Citrus Mojito and Cocoa Crisp flavors. It’s time to pass on some happiness and cheer to those closest to you. What better way to do that than to enable them to harness all the goodness that CBD has to offer!
Make Your Favorite CBD Coffee DrinkA great cup of coffee — whether hot or iced — never fails to lift the spirits! But, when you add some CBD into coffee, your normal cup of Joe truly becomes something magical. There are a multitude of ways that you can make your cup of coffee special. In fact, an internet search of coffee recipes is a great way to start. And while a regular cup of coffee, with or without cream and sugar, may not seem so uplifting, adding in a few special ingredients or blending it all up into a frozen delight is a sure-fire way to ignite some feel-good warm and fuzzies. If you’re stuck and wondering where to begin, we’ve put together a couple of simple coffee recipes that are sure to heat up the happiness factor.
Smooth Whipped CBD CoffeeEven though this recipe may be a little more work than your average cup of coffee, it’s definitely worth your time and effort. For this brew, whisk together one tablespoon of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. After the mixture is dissolved and uniform, add in a dropper-full of FAB’s full-spectrum 600mg or 1200mg vanilla CBD oil. The amount of CBD you put into your whipped coffee will depend on how used to it you are. As with any CBD oil, the best rule of thumb is to start low and go slow. Next, pour the mixture over whatever type of milk you usually use. This recipe works well with both regular milk as well as any kind of nut-based milk like almond or cashew milk. Make sure to stir before drinking. If you want to kick it up a notch, consider either stirring in some ice cubes to make it an iced whipped coffee, or throw some ice and your mixture in the blender to make a frozen treat. No matter which option you choose, what you’ll end up with is a sweet, delicious, smooth cup of coffee that’s sure to bring on the happy.
Chocolate Peppermint CBD EspressoIf you prefer a little more kick to your coffee, then this CBD-infused espresso recipe is just for you. This gem of a concoction is sure to brighten up anyone’s day. Ingredients:
- Strong Coffee or Espresso
- 1 Tablespoon Unsweetened Drinking Chocolate
- ½ Teaspoon Sugar or Other Natural Sweetener
- ¼ to ½ Cup of Creamer
- 15mg, or a dropper-and-a-half, of FAB’s 300mg full-spectrum CBD oil in mint flavor
- If you have the machine, make a double shot of espresso. If not, then brew a strong cup of regular coffee. Set aside.
- Pour the drinking chocolate and sugar into a large coffee mug.
- Incorporate the CBD oil into the drinking chocolate.
- Pour the espresso or the strong coffee into the drinking chocolate and stir.
- In a separate mug, heat the creamer for 30 seconds in the microwave.
- Pour the heated creamer into the drinking chocolate mixture.
- Finally, blend everything together with a milk frother for a fun, foamy finish.
Do What Makes You Happy as National CBD Day is Here!!In all of your busy-ness, have you ever just taken a moment to reflect on what exactly it is that truly makes you happy? There are lots of ways that you can do this. The best way to start is to think about carving out some time in your day for reflection. For most of us, this time comes either at the start of our day or at the end of it. When you find the time, sit in a quiet space and think deeply about events, actions, or things that have made you happy throughout your life. Then, use a notebook to jot them all down. Next, sort out the ones that you will realistically be able to do on a daily or a weekly basis. Don’t stress over the simplicity, or the complexity of what makes you happy. The point is that these are the things that make you happy and there’s no need to question it or pick it apart. Just go with it. But before you start journaling, we’re going to give you a few suggestions to get you started on your journey to happiness. These suggestions are simple, inexpensive, and fun and easy to do. The goal here is to simply create happiness.
Happy Relaxing BathNothing melts stress away and promotes happiness better than a nice, hot, relaxing soak in the tub. Turn your bath into your favorite spa getaway with some epsom salt, essential oils, CBD oil, candles, soft, fluffy towels, and soft music. The simple act of treating your body to a therapeutic, mood-boosting soak in the tub will bring you immeasurable amounts of happiness. First, set the scene. Dim the lights and light your candles. For extra happiness, pick candle scents that make you feel both relaxed and happy. Typically, lavender, lemon, orange, or rose petal scents do the trick. Next, play some soft music on your radio or device of your choice as you fill up your tub with whatever temperature water works best for you. While the tub is filling, pour in some epsom salt and drop in some lavender, chamomile, peppermint, or eucalyptus essential oils. You can also blend essential oils for a better chill effect. Remember, epsom salt is a wonderful addition to any bath because the magnesium in the salt works to help relax sore muscles. As an added benefit, you can also include a couple droppers full of FAB’s vanilla or mint 300mg CBD oil into your bath water as a way to further pamper your body. The only thing to do now is to sit back, relax, and have a good long soak in your spa tub while the candles flicker, and the music plays.
