How CBD Can Help with Stress and Anxiety During Lockdown
As social distancing is set to be the new normal and going back to our old ways of life within the near future seems less and less likely, experiencing stress and anxiety is a completely normal reaction. With this global pandemic, much-needed holidays have been cancelled, we’ve been unable to spend time with friends and family, overloaded with worrying information and many of us face uncertainties in our careers. There has never been a more important time to find new ways to manage stress and anxiety whenever it occurs.
Direct Treatment with CBD Products
Many people already know of the pain-relieving properties of Cannabidiol, better known as CBD. This chemical naturally occurs in cannabis plants such as marijuana and hemp. When separated from the plant, CBD does not cause the ‘high’ typically associated with cannabis, and so you are left with a product that is able to effectively improve many forms of stress and anxiety disorders as well as associated sleep issues.
The two main ways of taking CBD for stress and anxiety relief is by ingesting it in the form of oil drops or capsules, or by vaping. We have a great range of CBD oil for pain relief and stress and anxiety management, with a range of dosages and palatable flavours available. If you find yourself reaching for cigarettes to manage negative feelings, you may find that a better alternative is to use a CBD vape pen UK.
Whichever method you prefer, using CBD oil has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety quickly and effectively – it has been found that higher dosages (50mg+) can bring developing panic attacks to a complete stop. What’s more, CBD can be used regularly over a long-term period without developing the dependence and unwanted side effects found with many prescription medications.
Using CBD to Improve Your Lifestyle
Exercise is another fantastic way to manage stress and anxiety – simply going for a run, jog or even a walk outside does wonders. As well as giving you a chance to get away from stress-inducers and clear your head, exercising releases endorphins, dopamine, adrenaline and endocannabinoid – chemicals produced by your brain which make you feel happy, confident, relaxed and can even help with physical pain.
If you aren’t used to regular exercise, however, you may experience some aches and pains as you get into it. Our range of topical CBD pain relief cream UK will be of great help to soothe and heal muscles, joints and skin. CBD creams work by firing up the body’s endocannabinoids, which reduced inflammation, swelling and tenderness on the skin’s surface as well as penetrate deep into joints and muscles.
Attitudes towards CBD are rapidly changing, as more and more people realise this natural, safe and non-addictive chemical can be used as a powerful tool in improving both physical and mental wellbeing. Every person is different and so it's important to a way to manage stress and anxiety that works for you, both during the lockdown period and beyond.
