Building The Case For Using CBD For Stress

The Benefits Of Using CBD For Stress

Cannabidiol, more commonly referred to as CBD, is derived from the cannabis or hemp plants. CBD is popular for a bevy of reasons including:

  • Its lack of THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol). This translates into – you can take CBD for stress and other reasons but it won’t leave you feeling high, making it a perfect option for everyone.

  • Its lack of side effects. While results of taking CBD for stress vary across users, the one thing almost all can agree on is its lack of side effects – especially as compared to pain medications and sleeping pills that can be addictive or anti-inflammatory meds that can cause damage to the major organs with long-term use (just to name a few).

  • Its natural synchronicities with the human body. CBD is almost like a puzzle piece that naturally fits into the tapestry of the human body’s endocannabinoids system (ECS), which is found in the central nervous system. This relationship along with anti-inflammatory properties can work to alleviate many of the ways stress renders in our systems. 

How Using CBD For Stress Works

CBD has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that mirrors that of the human body’s own ECS. Within the ECS are many different receptors, or protein-based chemical structures, that are attached to cells. These receptors receive signals from various sources of stimuli. CBD interacts with the human body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors found in the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system to calm the body’s response to stress and alter serotonin signals.

CBD For Stress Research 

CBD has been shown, in a wide range of studies, to instill a sense of calm in people who take it, which may lower stress levels. It has also been associated with lowering inflammation which can lead to relief of stress for those suffering with chronic pain conditions such as back pain, sciatica, arthritis and fibromyalgia. The research regarding CBD for stress as well as other uses is ongoing but it has also shown promising results for those with conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and insomnia as well.

Types Of CBD To Choose From

CBD for stress comes in many forms from gummies to tinctures to creams to capsules. Finding the best CBD to help reduce your stress comes down to many variables, that can include:

  • Budget

  • Personal Preference

  • Types of health and wellness goals and issues you are facing

While some of these variables are personal and unique to the user, there are a few criteria that you should require from your CBD for stress such as pure ingredients, a reputation that is easy to vet online and a third-party audit of the CBD to ensure the highest quality.
