Coup the Stress in Your Life by Using CBD

Stress!!!! Ahhhh!!!! I've definitely felt this way far too often, especially lately. Did you know CBD oil can help with your stress levels, as well as many other things? This post from a reader expounds on how CBD may improve your life.

Time is the only thing that we can’t get back. So much of our life we stress over the little things and we don’t know how to deal with them when they get here. Finding solutions to these problems isn’t an easy thing to do but what if I told you there is a product that was made just for that reason. That product is CBD and all forms of CBD including CBD hemp flower, CBD tincture, CBD oils, and many more. Let me explain how CBD can reduce the amount of stress in your life. 

Where does CBD come from? CBD stands for Cannabidiol and CBD derives from the hemp plant. The hemp plant has been used for many purposes but in our time, the hemp plant is used for common materials such as rope, shoes, or paper and even medicinal purposes. The hemp plant produces active ingredients such as CBD and THC. These active ingredients can be extracted and used for recreational or medicinal use.

Now that we know where CBD comes from, what is it? CBD is the hemp flower on the female plant that blooms when it is ready to be picked. Within the plant, the hemp flower (better known as bud) secretes certain chemical properties called cannabinoids. The bud also produces resin which helps attract pollen to produce the seeds which eventually are converted into CBD.

CBD and THC are found in the hemp plant but that doesn’t necessarily mean that CBD and THC is the same thing. The predominant ingredient in marijuana, CBD’s cannabis cousin, is THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol. Notice that CBD and THC both contain the word canna which originates from the word cannabis.

Marijuana primarily consists of THC and what THC does to the body is that it gives you the traditional “high” feeling. This isn’t the case so much with CBD. Instead, CBD is the primary ingredient in the hemp plant and CBD doesn’t give you the “high” feeling some people crave.

According to the Farm Bill that was passed in 2018 by President Trump, it allows for regulated industrial hemp plants to be sold and grown in the United States but it must contain less than 0.3% of THC. Anything above that level is not considered CBD but dominantly THC which is illegal at a federal level. It is important to know the state in which you are buying CBD and make sure that it is legal. Although it is legal at a federal level, it doesn’t hurt to check your individual state’s regulations.

What are some of the health benefits that CBD can help me cope with other than everyday stress? There are so many advantages CBD has to offer in helping with stress! CBD has been known to have anti-inflammatory benefits, helps cope with anti-anxiety disorders or disabilities, and it has helped people who are experiencing dietary issues.

CBD helps with physical injuries that you might have done to yourself. Because it has anti-inflammatory properties, it aids in the inflammation occurring in the injury and relieves the pressure. CBD oils do really help with arthritis and helps ease the pain you may be currently feeling. CBD helps if you need immediate relief and pain killers aren’t the direction you want to go.

Another thing CBD helps with is people who experience anxiety issues such as depression and social anxiety. Depression is defined as a persistent depressed mood and lack of interest. This lack of interest is so much that it begins to impact the person’s daily activities.

How CBD helps with depression is that the properties inside CBD interact with the brain’s receptors that are found in the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. CBD helps raise the low levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that influences your mental health, which can be the cause for lack of motivation.

The physiological properties that CBD has will begin to lower behavioral signs of anxiety. This attributes to social anxiety disorder, anxiety, and trauma related psychological symptoms. Many people have used CBD for anxiety and it has helped those people improve their mental state along with any other physical injuries they are carrying.

Let’s go over the most common ways to use CBD and which ways are better compared to others. There are three primary ways to use CBD. The first is smoking CBD through vape pens or by using CBD hemp flowers. Then there are topical CBD creams and oils that are used for smoking or rubbing directly on an affected area. Then there is eating food that contains CBD. Traditionally, smoking CBD hemp flowers is the way to go. Smoking CBD is the most common way you can use CBD and it is also the fastest!

When inhaling CBD, it goes through your lungs and circulates very quickly throughout the body. The fastest way to feel the effects of CBD is by smoking. This applies to any CBD product whether it is a CBD vape pen or a CBD oil inhaler. The difference between CBD hemp flower versus CBD vape pen is that you have to refill the vape pens with CBD oils.

Another common way people use CBD is by using CBD oils. This can range from topical creams or oils to the refilling of your vape pen. If you are interested in creams or oils, the most effective way to use those medical oils is to rub vigorously on the skin. Once you feel a warm sensation due to the friction caused between your hand and the affected injury, continue until you feel the effects.

Lastly, another common way people like to use CBD is by ingesting them. Once you eat a food item that contains either CBD or THC, it is called an edible. An edible is for the people who really don’t like smoking even though they would like to try CBD. There are a couple key differences between smoking and eating CBD and the first is the amount of time it takes for the CBD to react inside the body.

When smoking, the CBD travels through the cardiovascular system but when you eat CBD, it travels through the digestive system. Naturally, it takes longer for us to digest something than breathing. With that principle in mind, it takes a longer period of time for someone to feel the effects of an edible. It usually, depending on the amount of CBD added to the food, takes between 5-40 minutes for the effect to kick in.

With edibles, people get really creative and add CBD to anything they can get their hands on. There is a large community on the internet that shows different recipes all having CBD as their primary ingredient. I have personally seen and tried CBD granola, CBD cupcakes and brownies, and even CBD cashew salad. Some recipes might seem bizarre but you never know until you try it.

CBD has a lot of health benefits for people of all legal ages. It can be used recreationally or it can be used for medicinal purposes. Research has shown that people with anxiety could benefit from this plant that for a long period of time was considered taboo. By doing a little research and understanding the benefits of the plant, maybe this product can help you with any mental or physical concerns you may have.
