Research shows that an estimated 31% of adults in the US will experience some kind of unease or feeling of overwhelm at some time in their lives and each year. In response, Big Pharma has developed numerous drugs from Prozac to Xanax to Valium.
The problem is, these options often come with undesirable side-effects like nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, and headaches and they can often become hard to quit taking. nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, and headaches and they can often become hard to quit taking. Understandably, people are seeking natural alternatives.
Fortunately, research has begun to show how CBD might help. Here’s what we know so far:
- Cannabinoids (CBD) are compounds that are derived from the cannabis plant. They work like a “lock and key” with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS)-a vast network of chemical compounds and receptors.
- When activated, the ECS regulates a multitude of functions via the nervous system, from targeting temporary, occasional discomfort to facilitating relaxation, to elevating your mood.
How CBD Reduces Tension & Unease
The exciting thing about CBD (and why we’ve created our Calm & Centered collection) is how it creates a calming sensation in the body. Here are three specific ways CBD may help when your mind and/or body feel out of balance:
CBD Elevates Your Mood
Serotonin is an important neurotransmitter involved in mood regulation and low serotonin levels make us feel the opposite of calm. CBD may help brain cells transmit more serotonin signals, helping you to feel uplifted and inspired.
CBD Pumps up Your “Bliss Molecules”
CBD not only helps you unwind and find balance, but it also pumps up the “bliss molecules in your body associated with relaxation, calmness, peace, and clarity—absolutely crucial to make your days calm and keep up with modern life.
While there are plenty of options available to manage unease and assist in putting you at ease, we love having a natural solution (without unpleasant side-effects) that is increasingly backed by science.
