A perfect match to swipe-right: CBD and Meditation

Focus on breath or mindfulness and bring awareness into the present moment.  Clearing the mind is no easy task, however, and neither is giving your attention to one thing at a time. Such a mental exercise requires cultivating a specific concentration, which may make meditation sound all the more daunting or difficult, ironic as that may be. However, research has shown that consistently making time to incorporate meditation into your routine can yield a handful of positive effects, just like CBD! *yes*   If you are facing any mental resistance and feel overwhelmed about embracing meditation, introducing CBD into your approach may help the practice to be less burdensome.
