Some researchers refer to CBD as the “boy scout molecule” but we like to refer to it as the "girl scout molecule." Why? Because it always does the right thing for the body in any given situation.
It’s a “smart” molecule, a regulator, a modulator, and an adaptogen with a plethora of physiological benefits.
But its ability to perform as an adaptogen is particularly important given the amount of stress experienced in today’s lifestyle.
Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that protect the body from the impact of stressors - physical, chemical, and biological. They work by supporting the adrenals, the glands that regulate hormonal responses to stress, and they’re important because they offer widespread support and help bring the body back to a state of equilibrium.
Adaptogens have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine but now have immense modern-day applications in helping manage anxiety, stress, and illness. But their real superpowers lie in the fact that they work specifically with your needs by adapting their function to wherever your body is out of balance.
So how did CBD make the cut as an adaptogen? To tick the “adaptogen” box, herbs must be:
CBD ticks all of these boxes and, depending on the location of stress in the brain or body, will act to promote balance.
Plus, research has revealed upward of 50 mechanisms in action, showing CBD’s ability to be a “multi-target” therapy (meaning it’s not a “one-trick pony”).
CBD receptors play a crucial role in the regulation of the immune system. And with current studies suggesting that CBD can treat a whole host of inflammatory disorders - this has earned CBD its “girl scout” name since inflammation is at the root of so many imbalances in the body.
So if you’re done with being stressed, anxious, or in discomfort, taking advantage of CBD and its adaptogen properties is simple.
Depending on your needs and preferences, you can use high-quality CBD products just like you would a vitamin (whether you choose capsules, cream, spray, or roll-on) and we recommend using them daily for at least 30 days to see maximum results.
So if you’re looking for a molecule that always strives to do its best while at the same time boosting your overall wellness, consider adding CBD to your day-to-day health and wellness toolkit. We’d love to hear if you notice a difference.
