CBD Can Help Reduce Stress?
Our lives are filled with stress, some good some bad. How you respond to the stresses we all face can have a big impact on your quality of life. Too much stress can wreak havoc on your anxiety levels. 40 million adults in the US are struggling with stress and anxiety related disorders. Most of the time these conditions are treated with powerful pharmaceuticals, some of them highly addicting drugs like Xanax and Valium. Prescription drugs are certainly needed in some cases, but for others the side effects aren’t worth the trouble.
Preclinical Studies have shown evidence suggesting that CBD could be used as an acute treatment for
- General Anxiety Disorder
- Seasonal Affective Disorder
- Panic Disorder
CBD works similarly to SSRI’s like Zoloft and Prozac and may even work quicker than these prescription drugs in transferering seratonin between cells. This seratonin transfer reduces anxiety and also has a mood boosting effect. Studies have shown that many people are able to reduce or replace their prescription medications with regular CBD consumption.
We see a lot of people in the store everyday looking for just a little help to feel less stressed or anxious in their everyday life. Often times people will come in to purchase a bottle of CBD Oil that they use in the morning and at night, and some gummies or a CBD vape pen so they have a discreet way get some more CBD throughout the day when and if they need it.
