What is the buzz about CBD? Why do people love it so much? 

CBD is a fan favourite because it’s a natural, non-addictive relief for multiple everyday issues that we all encounter!

So, what can CBD be used for and a few reasons why you might want to try it:

CBD for stress and anxiety relief:

CBD has been found to have calming effects on the body and mind. It can promote relaxation and help reduce symptoms of anxiety and stress. CBD has a broad functional profile, including interactions with several receptors within our Endocannabinoid systems known to regulate fear and anxiety-related behaviors. 

Multiple preliminary studies have shown that people taking CBD have less adverse responses to stressful situations than when not taking CBD, for example in public speaking or when we have just a few things to many to handle at once. Some studies suggest that CBD may even be effective in treating anxiety disorders. 

CBD for sleep: 

CBD can also be beneficial for those struggling with sleep disorders. Whether it is falling asleep or waking up at night. CBD can help calm your mind and help you to relax and fall asleep waking up feeling well rested.

Research has shown that starting your day focused and with a plan can make for a happier and more productive day. CBD oil has been shown to decrease the brain fog, calm you and get you ready to conquer your goals! Have you thought of trying 5% CBD oil with your coffee or tea?

CBD for discomforts and inflammation:

One of CBD’s pillar functions is battling inflammation, both in the skin and the whole body. It is doing so by interacting with your body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) when the body is off balance.

People suffering from aches and discomforts often enjoy  10% CBD oil or 20% CBD oil.

The scientific community continues to study to understand the role CBD plays in inflammation.  Stay tuned to our further blogs for science translated into words we can relate to!

CBD for Menopause:

 CBD is known to support regulation of hormones. While research on CBD's effects on menopause is still limited, early studies and evidence suggest that CBD may offer to elevate some of the solutions to issues experienced during the transition period.

Menopause is characterised by a decline in estrogen production, leading to various symptoms like hot flushes, mood swings, insomnia and sometimes also joint discomforts. 

CBD interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system, which can support regulating hormone levels. How? To start with, it can help with regulating cortisol levels, it promotes relaxation and reduces stress levels, this way CBD can help to manage hot flashes and night sweats.

Additionally, by regulating of serotonin's levels, it plays a role in regulating the mood and emotions. Finally, some women also experience anxieties during menopause. CBD might have anxiotylic effect, meaning it could help alleviate symptoms of anxiety. 


CBD for Sporters:
