From the moment we wake up in the morning, we move from one task to another. Add time constraints, deadlines, personal expectations and physical and emotional conditions and these daily tasks turn into serious stress triggers. When we are not battling and coping with our own stress, we are dealing with its negative effects on our families, friendships, work life, and even our pets.
Am I Stressed?
Among the many symptoms of emotional stress are feelings of being overwhelmed, difficulty quieting the mind and constant worrying. Physical symptoms of stress include low energy, upset stomach, aches and pains from tense muscles, compromised immune system, low sexual desire and insomnia.
If these symptoms go unchecked for a long period of time they may result in serious mental health problems like depression and anxiety. Serious physical ailments include cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease and high blood pressure resulting in heart attack and strokes. A study by the American Psychological Association correlates chronic stress to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung disease, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver and suicide.
Healthy Ways to De-Stress
Rather than finding relief in prescription pills, more individuals are seeking holistic ways to reduce stress in their daily lives. For many, this means attempting to change present habits and patterns for a calmer, low-stress routine. Some effective, proven ways of naturally shifting stress triggers is daily meditation, a yoga or tai chi practice, regular exercise, incorporating peaceful morning and evening rituals like eliminating caffeine consumption, relaxing baths, massage and eating organic, non-processed foods.
The benefits of CBD oil has gained mass popularity as a natural and effective addition to an existing healthy, low-stress lifestyle. But, you may be wondering how does hemp oil work?
CBD And Your Endocannabinoid System = Balance
Our bodies’ Endocannabinoid System modulates practically every part of our system. To understand how CBD oil helps reduce stress, we need to take a closer look at the complex, biological network of cell receptors that make up the Endocannabinoid System. These cell receptors oversee bodily functions such as emotions, pain, sensation, appetite, digestion, and sleep. Our bodies thrive when our endocannabinoid system operates at its optimum capacity to facilitate a condition called homeostasis.
Homeostasis is achieved when we introduce our bodies to CBD (Cannabidiol) oil, which is derived from hemp, a sub-species of the cannabis sativa plant. Cannabinoids provide support to weakened cells and enhances the healthy ones. Hemp is non-psychoactive and doesn’t make you high. Some hemp strains can produce high levels of CBD and low levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). THC is the component that induces the psychoactive-classic-marijuana- “high.” Read more about the endocannabinoid system.
Bringing Homeostasis to Our Bodies
Our Endocannabinoid signaling includes the areas in our bodies where stress activity is triggered. According to scientists, a disrupted Hypothalic-Pituitary-Adrenal (HPA) Axis (concerns cortisol and stress hormones) and the amygdala (a section of the limbic system that affects emotions, particularly fear) can be repaired to a state of homeostasis, increasing the ability to adapt to everyday stress.
For those who want to introduce healthy components to their established regimens, hemp oil contains natural properties which promote a calm focus to help you buffer the daily chaos that can trigger negative emotions leading to stress. For some it can be as easy as taking a capsule, adding a dropper of CBD MCT oil to a hot or cold beverage, eating a couple of organic gummies, or massaging CBD-enriched lotion on our bodies. Rather than taking pharmaceuticals with a long list of side-effects, CBD Oil can be the perfect natural defense against stress.
