Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? It rules your anxiety, headaches + pain. And CBD oil may be the answer to bringing that system into balance + reducing your stress.
We can all agree - life is wonderful, wild, beautiful and completely hectic. Between work and relationships - it can really be a challenge to remain mindful and balanced through it all.
Feeling the stress?
When overwhelmed by stress you'll notice low energy, upset stomach, aches and pains, a compromised immune system, low sexual desire and insomnia. Sounds fun right? While the emotional side of stress can leave you feeling overwhelmed and worried.
Gone unchecked, these symptoms can lead to some major mental health problems like depression and anxiety. And physical effects like heart disease and high blood pressure.
What is CBD oil?
CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is derived from the hemp plant and contains natural anti-inflammatory chemicals that are known antioxidants and neuroprotectants. While CBD will not get you high (and is legal in all 50 states), it balances your endocannabinoid system reducing stress, inflammation, and pain and is quickly becoming an alternative to traditional prescriptions.
The endocannabinoid system (ECS)
Did you know that your endocannabinoid system was discovered as a result of studying marijuana? It’s comprised of our body’s endogenous cannabinoids and their receptors, and low levels are connected to diseases like arthritis, depression, fibromyalgia, IBS and migraines. Long story short, research has identified that the endocannabinoid system plays a major role in the way our body responds to stress. And when it's out of balance is when we feel that low energy, those aches and pains, overwhelmed and worried.
Bring balance to your endocannabinoid system and relieve stress
The human body and the cannabis plant both make cannabinoids, so your body is already programmed to be able to use CBD and CBD oil to effectively bring balance back to your endocannabinoid system helping reduce inflammation, pain, and anxiety.
How to use CBD oil
CBD can be applied topically, sublingually, inhaled, swallowed, or sipped. Take a capsule with breakfast, put a few drops in your morning tea, or add Upstate Elevator Supply Company's Botanical + CBD Super Rich Body Creme to your winter skin routine.
