Life in the USA is stressful right now. At this moment in history, there’s a civil rights movement unfolding in front of our eyes, attempting to right the wrongs of ongoing systemic injustice and police brutality. The coronavirus has killed over one hundred thousand people in less than six months, and continues to sweep the nation with almost 4 million cases. It’s overwhelming hospitals, putting people out of work and uprooting our day to day life and behaviour. It’s an incredibly stressful time to be living in the USA, and unfortunately, we have no idea when any of this will end.
It’s now more important than ever to fortify ourselves in the face of stress, to strengthen our immune system and get adequate, high-quality rest. Bringing a new level of consciousness and intention to our day-to-day lives will help us remain resilient in the face of what’s to come.
What is CBD?
CBD or Cannabidiol, is a molecule found in the Cannabis plant that has all the incredible health benefits of Cannabis without the feeling of intoxication it’s more commonly known for. The kind of CBD you consume, how you consume it, and how much you consume can be the difference between whether or not it works for you. Read more about the problem with most CBD companies, the importance of a pure CBD formula, and how to figure out the right dosage for you before buying and consuming.
Why Take CBD?
Fortify Yourself in the Face of Stress.
Given the particularly stressful times that we are living in, there’s no better supplement to take than CBD. The biggest problem with stress is that it’s like a silent menace—many of us actually don’t even know that we are stressed. It affects our thoughts, feelings and behavior on an unconscious level and, when we let our elevated stress level go for long periods of time unchecked, it causes inflammation throughout the body, which can lead to all kinds of adverse health issues – from headaches to high blood pressure, heart disease to diabetes.
Maintain Homeostasis in the Body
CBD works through a system in the body called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). While there’s still a lot we don’t know about how the ECS works, what we do know is this: scientific research has shown that in nearly all health conditions, the ECS is dysregulated. Scientists think that the goal of the ECS is to maintain homeostasis inside the body in response to fluctuations in the outside environment. As our external environment continues to get increasingly stressful, supporting the endocannabinoid system through consuming CBD could be vital to staying healthy.
Increase Your Sleep Hours & Quality
Sleep and stress have an interesting feedback loop—getting adequate sleep is incredibly important for the body in the face of increased stress levels, but high stress levels also make it harder to get adequate sleep. Much has been written about the relationship between CBD and sleep, and there’s still a lot we don’t know about how it works. However, what we do know is that the results of using CBD for sleep are profound and compared to most of the sleeping tablets on the market, the side effects are miniscule.
