#McCintosh Apples – This Traditional Superfood Could be the CBD Answer We’ve Been Looking For
McIntosh apples may be a traditional, old-fashioned fruit, but their modern-day nutritional superpower has been gaining increasing attention in recent years. As a natural wellness enthusiast that grows and harvests organic kale, I’ve noticed that apples have always been one of the most popular fruits due to their deliciousness and dietary benefits. However, many of us have overlooked the genuine opportunity that McIntosh apples present: the possibility of aiding naturally in CBD intake.
It’s no secret that CBD, or Cannabidiol, has been gaining popularity among those looking for natural remedies to their physical and mental health issues. Given the positive results that some people have had, it’s no surprise that many of us are looking for ways to incorporate CBD into our daily routines. Knowing that McIntosh apples are loaded with natural antioxidants and polyphenols, I thought it was a natural connection to explore further.
Let me be the first to say that apples alone can never replace the powerful effects of a concentrated dose of CBD. However, that doesn’t mean that the combination of our traditional superfood with the modern-day remedy can’t be complementary. After researching further, it has become clear that apples, in particular McIntosh, can provide some supplemental support to CBD intake. For one, McIntosh apples are a great way to stabilize our blood sugar naturally, an important consideration when taking CBD, since it can slightly lower blood sugar when isolated. Not to mention, apples are full of antioxidants, another important consideration when taking CBD, as our body needs adequate nutrition for it to absorb the Cannabidiol.
Or course, besides dietary considerations, McIntosh apples can also provide some tangible physical benefits. They are a great source of iron, dietary fiber, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A, all important building blocks for our general wellbeing. Including a few slices of freshly cut McIntosh apples in your daily smoothie is a great way to keep your body properly fueled for the day. Add in a few drops of CBD oil and you’ll be feeling the natural effects of nature’s timeless and powerful combination.
When taking a holistic approach to enjoying the benefits of McIntosh apples and CBD together, there are also important lifestyle considerations to make. Make sure that you’re getting enough rest, staying hydrated, and adequately fueling your body with plant-based nutrition in order to properly reap the benefits. Also, with the powerful effects of both apples and CBD, remember to start small and build up over time, to ensure your body is not being overwhelmed. If using a CBD oil, it’s important to find one with adequate quality control measures (third-party certification, seed-to-purchase transparency, etc.), to ensure you’re not dealing with any unwanted contaminants.
McIntosh apples may have been around for generations, but that doesn’t mean that we should over look its untapped potential. Especially when it comes to nature’s more modern-day remedy, CBD. With some mindful consideration and appropriate dosage, our friend, the McIntosh apple, could hold the key to unlocking CBDs potential benefits in our daily routines. Just don’t forget your three-legged pup, Igor, a slice of McIntosh on the side! #CBDforLife #MacintoshforCBD
