CBD For Everyday Stress

Mar 21, 2023

Though we all lead different lives, it's essential to recognize the universal nature of the struggles and demands of everyday life. Regardless of occupation, whether you are a financial advisor, welder, teacher, or chef, we all feel stress.

Stressors can affect both body and mind, and we are bombarded by them every day. Finding a healthy way to manage and reduce stress is critical to creating balance in your mental and physical health. 

In modern-day society, we are overwhelmed by stimuli from social media and the 24-hour news cycle; this reality creates a sense of not being enough and even worry. We are constantly competing and often measuring our self-worth by productivity and success. Usually, there is not enough time in the day to complete everything on our to-do list.

When you have free time, and you're "supposed" to be relaxing, it usually feels impossible because your internal dialogue focuses on what you aren’t doing and worries about the past or future. We are hardly ever in the present moment. Not to mention, all the items on your to-do list that you did complete leave you aching and drained. With physical discomfort added on top of everything, it can be hard to do the things that bring you joy - even if you have the time.

Adding CBD to your daily routine can support the creation of equilibrium and replenish your natural supply of endocannabinoids. Just as your body needs vitamins to function correctly, endocannabinoids keep your system running smoothly. Although the FDA has not approved the use of CBD to treat or cure any medical conditions, the body of research supporting CBD's use for wellness is growing.

This study reports that CBD is “a natural way to help you relax and unwind” due to its positive effects on 5-HT1A and Endocannabinoid receptors. These receptors control serotonin levels in the body and brain and control stress and energy levels, respectively. Both of these receptor types are found throughout the brain and body and affect the body’s levels of many essential neurotransmitters that control stress, anxiety, and mood. The article further explains that “[o]ne of the most noticeable effects that many people report is a pleasant and noticeable lift in mood and a deep feeling of relaxation. Some describe feeling a wave of calm and bliss washing over their bodies, consistent with CBD’s reported effects at 5-HT1A and Endocannabinoid receptors.”

This study suggests that CBD can positively affect the brain in addition to other therapeutic benefits. CBD may naturally reduce anxiety and boost mood due to the interaction with the body’s serotonin receptors. Additionally, CBD may promote hippocampal neurogenesis, creating neurons in the brain that may further reduce anxiety.

Many studies suggest that CBD is a natural way to support the reduction of the effects of daily stressors on your nervous system. Because the stress affecting your mind and body is deeply intertwined, finding a simple solution that benefits both is key.
