The COVID-19 pandemic has, in a matter of weeks, turned the world upside down for most of us. And as we wash our hands more frequently, maintain our social distancing and keep an eye on the news as we wait for things to return to normal, it’s natural to feel a heightened sense of stress. After all, none of us has ever been through anything like this before, so feelings of uncertainty and fear, plus having our normal routines completely upended, make a perfect recipe for higher levels of stress.
Fortunately, if you’re dealing with added stress these days, CBD products from Hemp Bombs may be able to help. Relying on our premium CBD products to help you keep calm and relieve stress can be useful in these trying times. Whether you’re trying to adjust to working from home full time or you still have to report to your usual workplace, whether you’re dealing with children stuck inside with an abundance of pent-up energy or are struggling to adjust to any of the other unexpected changes to daily life you may be going through, keeping your stress levels in check can only help.
But first, it’s important to understand what CBD is and how exactly it may help you relieve stress.
What Is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a compound that occurs naturally in hemp and marijuana plants. CBD is often confused with THC, the cannabinoid in marijuana plants responsible for producing a psychoactive “high” feeling, but CBD is not intoxicating.
How Does CBD Work?
CBD is becoming increasingly popular in the health and wellness industry due to its many reported benefits, but how exactly does this compound work? The answer lies in the endocannabinoid system, or ECS, a biological network found in every human brain. Composed of receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes, the ECS is thought to be responsible for regulating a variety of important bodily functions, including mood, memory, pain sensation, appetite, circadian rhythm, and more. It is also responsible for maintaining homeostasis, which is the way your body regulates proper balance and function.
The ECS interacts with endocannabinoids produced naturally within the body, and early scientific studies have shown that CBD may work similarly with your ECS. Taking premium CBD supplements from a reputable manufacturer like Hemp Bombs may be a great way for you to boost the functionality of your ECS and take advantage of a number of potential health and wellness benefits.
How Can CBD Benefit Me?
The research is ongoing, but many people are turning to CBD as a natural, plant-based supplement and users commonly report that adding CBD to their regular regimen has helped promote:
- Stress and anxiety relief – CBD has been shown to encourage calm and peace of mind to help provide relief from occasional stress and anxiety.
- A good night’s rest – Whether you’ve always had problems falling – or staying – asleep, or if current events have caused you to become restless at night, CBD promotes a sense of relaxation and calm throughout the body that may help you get a better night of sleep.
- Complete comfort – Many CBD users report that this compound helps them find an overall calm, relaxed state of body and mind. If you find yourself unable to de-stress of late, CBD may help ease your mind and relax your body.
- A balanced lifestyle – CBD may be useful in promoting positivity and an enhanced sense of well-being, so no matter how the current situation has affected your mindset, CBD may help you find a better sense of balance.
Now that you know a little bit more about CBD, how it works, and the benefits it may offer, we’ve put together a list of our top five CBD products that may help you deal with the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic:
