Next week, many of us will be celebrating Thanksgiving. It’s a complex and potentially complicated holiday for many reasons, especially when there are menus to organize, meals to cook, and people to accommodate. It’s traditionally a holiday of family, food, and fun – but let’s be honest: it’s also a giant stress fest.
Fuel for the Fire
For most of us, this has been a frustratingly stressful year as it is. There’s no need to let the stress of Thanksgiving add to the mess of 2020! So what if the turkey is overcooked, and you couldn’t find the mini-marshmallows for the baked sweet potatoes. It’s all good, because even though this year has been hell on a stick you still have a lot to be grateful for. Also, you have a secret weapon to help you to make it through the day in a harmonized, well-balanced state of chill; CBD. So, whether you will be spending time with your family or your quarantine pod, or whether you are the prime mover, the head chef, the prep cook or simply a willing/unwilling participant, you got this!
It Starts with You
The first step to your perfect state of chill begins the night before. Getting a good night’s sleep before Thanksgiving Day is mission critical. We suggest taking a bath with a CBD-infused bath bomb. After that, apply our Sunset Salve to soothe any remaining aches, pains or kinks. Lastly, top off your evening with our Sleep Tincture to ensure that you fall asleep and stay asleep through the night. You will wake up in the morning refreshed and ready to take on the day.
The Day Of…
When you wake up on Thanksgiving morning, take a few drops of our Lemon Mint CBD tincture for invigoration and clarity. It’s a great way to kickstart your day with a fresh feeling of energy and focus that will prepare you for the big day ahead.
The Main Event
When it comes time for your Thanksgiving meal, we suggest creating a welcome drink infused with CBD. This will be a great conversation piece and offer you a chance to educate the crew on the basics of CBD. It’s a pretty neutral topic that has to do with everyone’s health and well-being, and you may be pleasantly surprised at how many people have heard of it.
It is then that you can offer them a CBD infused drink that will help to take the edge off any potential family (or quarantine pod!) feuds over the next few hours.
Try this recipe for a Plum Rosemary spritz, offered by our guest contributor and author Lauren Wilson. Or just keep it simple and offer to spike whatever everyone is drinking with flavored CBD tincture. For this we recommend our Natural tincture, as it blends well with most other flavors.
Whatever your plans are for Turkey Day – whether at home with your quarantine pod, with friends, or visiting family – the important thing is that you have a good day. We hope you have the kind of day that offers you a chance to share your gratitude with the people that you love. Happy Thanksgiving, and happy CBDing!
