You’ve got this! You have your pantry set with Whole30 ingredients, and you’ve picked your first few recipes to tackle #SeptemberWhole30. You might have established Whole30 online coaching, purchased Whole30 books or even set up Whole30 daily texts of encouragement. But what about the rest of your wellness journey?
Eliminating your favorite sugary treats is not easy. We’ve been there before, and we know how you feel. But we’ll let you in on a little secret: CBD can actually support you in your Whole30 journey. Here are a few ways CBD can help you for the long haul and why choosing a Whole30-compliant CBD product is so important.
Let’s start with a few basics.
First, let’s talk about cannabis. Although CBD comes from a cannabis plant, CBD products will not make you high. The last thing you need on your Whole30 journey is to get the munchies! CBD is responsible for regulating body functions, and it has zero intoxicating effects.
So which CBD products are Whole30 compliant?
CBD lotions, creams, balms, and oil salves. Ding, ding, ding! I’ll take “things that are not ingested” for $500. Well sort of…what about oil drops?
Oil drops and other ingestible CBD products may not be Whole30 compliant, depending on the ingredients. The trick is to check the labels. Just like you checked the labels at the grocery store to stock your Whole30 pantry, the same rule applies for CBD and your other wellness supplements. So read the fine print! If oil drops list Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), artificial fillers, and sweeteners like stevia in their ingredients, they are not Whole30 compliant.
Also, edible CBD products like gummies are not Whole30 compliant. Similar to that jellybean you used to crave, these products may contain sweeteners or other ingredients not included in the Whole30 guidelines.
Why is Whole30 important?
Whole30 changed my life. I used to be a processed food junkie. Several years ago, I felt exhausted all the time, I had brain fog and my whole body was wrecked with pain. My blood work came back normal, so my doctor determined that I must be depressed and tried to put me on antidepressants. I had suffered from depression in the past, so I was very familiar with it - I knew what I was experiencing was not depression.
One day, I stumbled upon Whole30 and learned about the benefits of eating whole foods. I began to educate myself about what I put into my body and embraced new, healthier options. I could feel the effects of those nutritious, whole foods on my body, but more importantly, I started to feel better…more like myself.
The Whole30 timeline is a great resource! And let me tell you, the Tiger Blood phase is REAL and you will feel absolutely amazing! My advice is to stay in tune with your body. Pay attention to the positives, the negatives and the unchanged.
