What is International Women’s Day?
Happy International Women’s Day, from all of us here on the Feel Good Edibles team! Started in the early 20th century, International Women’s Day, March 8th, is a day to honor the countless contributions women have made to science, business, politics, the arts, among other areas of human endeavor. We here at Feel Good Edibles believe in gender equality, respect for all people and celebrating amazingness! That starts by finding ways to say “Thank You” to the women in your lives and all around the world.
What You Can Do to Honor Women on IWD
The theme of International Women’s Day is #BreaktheBias. According to the International Women’s Day website, the 2022 theme asks people to, “imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias”. Start by sharing the hashtag #BreakTheBias on your social media accounts throughout the month of March, which is also Women’s History Month as a whole. Buy from women-owned businesses. Read a book written by a woman. Consider attending an International Women’s Day event – either in person or online. Here’s another great idea: give the special women in your life the gift of delicious, fruity, relaxing CBD gummies from Feel Good Edibles!
Women and CBD
Growing research is showing that CBD has differing effects on women versus men. For example, preliminary studies show that in women, CBD may result in lower levels of cortisol, a hormone that is connected to erratic mood, weight gain and stress levels. Pain in women also tends to have a more psychological impact than on men. The relaxing effects of CBD are perfect to relieve the additional mental strain caused by an intense yoga session, menstrual cramps or chronic pain conditions (which impacts far more women than men, on average).
How Can Feel Good Edibles Help?
Whether buying for yourself or an important woman in your life, our all-natural, THC-free, fruit flavored gummies are the perfect gift to provide relaxation, pain relief and promote a regulated sleep pattern. Currently, we are running a special offer on our combination apple and cherry gummies at 1200mg of CBD, or 600mg. Give the gift of Feeling Good to a woman in your life worth celebrating.
And once again, happy International Woman’s Day and Women’s History Month!
