There’s plenty of stress medication out there, but if you’re not keen on dosing up on drugs, or you’ve suffered bad side effects, or you are just looking for something new, it’s worth knowing that there are alternative ways of getting some relief - ways that offer health benefits that potentially go far beyond simply tackling stress. Enter CBD.
What is Stress?
Stress is our body’s natural response to threats, and when you think about it, it’s there to keep us alive by alerting us to danger. But when it goes into overdrive, it stops being useful and instead makes daily life difficult. Affecting an estimated 18.1% of adults in the US and at least 1 in 10 in the UK, stress is a fact of life for many of us - but it doesn’t have to be.
We’re still discovering all the different ways CBD can be used to treat a huge number of ailments, but studies are showing that it has “considerable potential” when it comes to stress. Scientists believe this is thanks to the way in which CBD seems to enhance the effectiveness of your brain’s natural serotonin receptors - and it’s these that are believed to boost your mood and relieve stress. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at some of our favourite CBD products for stress relief.
We’ve chosen this top-quality CBD oil because it’s organically grown, has a pleasant taste and it’s been selected for its high CBD content. Because it’s rich in terpenes and cannabinoids, you’ll get the full ‘entourage effect’ for maximum effectiveness in combating stress. It’s mixed with hemp seed oil, which contains essential fatty acids for a further health boost.
We recommend this CBD oil when feeling agitated or restless, to welcome the calm back into your life.
We love this hand-crafted tincture because it combines two powerful ingredients, CBD and turmeric, into organic olive oil for a range of health benefits. Alongside CBD’s many uses, the turmeric in this oil is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, while black pepper extract adds to the effectiveness of this product by increasing the bioavailability of the active ingredients.
This tincture is our favourite when not feeling at your best, to boost the immune system and help with mental clarity and focus.
Lavender has long been celebrated for its calming effects, and that’s why we think this gorgeous balm makes the perfect addition to your daily wellness routine. Combining the soothing effects of lavender with the health benefits of CBD and the healing properties of arnica, this is a product you can use as a hand cream or body lotion to ease the tension in your body brought about by stress. It’s made purely from natural plant butters and oils, making it completely vegan.
Best to apply gently over large areas of skin and rub in deeply.
