We all know from experience that prolonged or chronic stress has a negative impact on both our physical and mental health and therefore your quality of life. When we experience stress, our body produces a hormone called cortisol, which can have harmful effects on our immune system, blood pressure, and other bodily functions if levels remain high over time. This can lead to a range of health issues such as heart disease, weakened immune system, high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes, among others (1,2). Chronic stress has also been shown to contribute to mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, fatigue, impaired cognitive function, relationship problems and substance abuse(3,4,5,6). So, it's important to manage stress effectively and take care of ourselves in order to maintain good health and well-being.

The world we live in can be an extremely stressful place that can leave us filled with anxieties. Diet, exercise, and mindful meditation can all help to reduce our stress levels, but a non-toxic all-natural plant based solution has been shown to help as well. Cannabis…

Research has shown that active compounds found in Cannabis can help to reduce that stress in a number of ways. These compounds including cannabinoids, terpenoids,and various phytochemicals interact with our body's endocannabinoid system (EC), which plays a role in regulating stress responses via endocannabinoids, receptors, and enzymes.

This system regulates a ton of things inside of our body like

Pain perception
Mood and emotions
Appetite and digestion
Motor control
Memory and learning
Immune function
Reproduction and fertility
Cardiovascular function

When we consume Cannabis it interacts with our body’s EC system. Research, (and personal experience), has shown that this interaction can help with a bunch of the negative effects of stress



Relaxation: Cannabis can induce a sense of relaxation and calm, which can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety (7).
Mood enhancement: Cannabis can also enhance mood, making users feel happier and more positive, which can help to counteract the negative effects of stress (8).
Pain relief: Pain relief: Chronic pain can be a significant source of stress, and cannabis has been shown to be effective in reducing pain(9).
Sleep improvement: Cannabis can also improve sleep quality, which is important for managing stress and overall well-being(10).
Reduced physiological response to stress: Cannabis has been shown to reduce the physiological response to stress, including reducing the release of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress(11).

Look, we all know that life can be challenging, and it's only natural to seek ways to improve our well-being. For millennia, humans have turned to the therapeutic properties of cannabis, and now we have access to a specific cannabinoid known as CBD. Unfortunately, many people are hesitant to try cannabis because they associate it with getting high. It's true that the cannabinoid THC produces this effect, but CBD doesn't. This all-natural phytochemical delivers many of the benefits associated with cannabis without any psychoactive effects. By learning more about CBD and its potential benefits, you may be able to enjoy a bit less stressful life. I hope this article has provided you with valuable information that can help you understand cannabis and make informed decisions about your health and wellness.

We source our CBD from our own USDA Certified Organic farm in Strasburg, CO, where we use sustainable and environmentally friendly farming practices to ensure the purity and potency of our products.
