The change in weather from winter to spring brings a lot of life with it—flowers are in bloom, the grass is greener, and bird songs fill the air. Everything about spring season screams: Go outside.
But for those who suffer from anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain or other aggravating condition, being active outside can sometimes seem impossible.
To help you start enjoying the beautiful spring season, here are some easy activities to get you in the spring spirit. We’ve paired each one with a different cannabidiol (CBD) product that will help you manage your needs and keep you focused on enjoying the warm, sunny weather.

Vaporizers deliver CBD to the system very quickly, providing immediate relief for acute aches and pains. Try the Beboe Calming CBD Blend for a beautiful balance of relaxation and pain relief.

Nothing’s better for a picnic than a cheese plate and some fresh bread. To liven up your smorgasbord, incorporate CBD into your spread with this Roasted Garlic & Lemon Pepper spice blend from Cured Nutrition.
