Stress is an essential part of being human.
It allows us to respond to perceived threats, and it also pushes us to grow. While stress, in general, is actually a good thing, long term stress can have severe implications on the body and mind. We all need a little bit of stress to thrive and survive. Good stress, sometimes called “eustress” by psychologists, can boost your brainpower and memory, make you stronger, and push you to be more creative and successful in your life. But when you exist in bad stress for too long, you’ll start to notice some of the symptoms below.
What Stress can do to throw us off

The occasional Stress we experience when we push to hard from day-to-day may present some challenging outcomes. Have you felt disappointed by the decisions that co-workers and family make, do you find yourself in traffic and just wanting to get home, on a bad, is your favorite ice cream out of stock at your favorite store, and does keeping up exhaust you? That’s the stress response. And not the good kind. When you spend a lot of time in this type of hypervigilant headspace, it can take a toll on your body and mind.

Some things that you may feel when facing occasional stress:
Tired / worn out
Trouble shutting down at night
Overwhelmed
Your not thinking clearly
Mad for what seems like no reason
Fear of missing out on something (#FOMO)
Finding Solutions

Finding solutions to help support these occasions of stress can be tricky. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to managing a chaos we deal with potentially every day. It’s all about finding options that work best for you, your body, your mind, and always in conjunction with advice and care from your primary healthcare provider. Finding a balance is key

Why The Endocannabinoid System Matters

If you aren’t familiar with the endocannabinoid system in the body, learning about how CBD interacts with the body will be packed with new information that you might not have learned in your last biology class. Many medical schools don’t teach about the endocannabinoid system. The ECS is a regulatory system responsible for interacting with most of the other biological systems within the body with its primary focus on supporting a state of homeostasis (Balance)

According to Dr. Ethan Russo
Board-certified neurologist, and psychopharmacology researcher

“There are more cannabinoid receptors in the brain than there are for all of the neurotransmitters put together.” To understand how the body works as a whole, you need to understand the importance of the ECS. Because the ECS interacts with most other systems in the body.

How CBD Interacts With The Body

  • Those cannabinoid receptors are what allow CBD to do its job. CBD can interact with different receptors in the body. Endocannabinoids act as messengers for the endocannabinoid system. Now imagine the cannabinoid receptors standing and waiting for these messengers on the surface of different cells. Anandamide (the endocannabinoid produced by the body that actually means “Bliss” is suggested by researchers to be what is responsible for a runner’s high and calming effect).

Quality and Testing Matters

When it comes to consuming cannabidiol, quality, and testing matter. Not all CBD is created equally, especially in places where testing and labeling aren’t required. The delivery method also matters, and you can decide which method is right for you based on suggestions from your healthcare team, personal preferences, and self-experimentation.

When determining whether a CBD brand is high-quality, it’s important to determine if they provide testing and labeling on their products. Are they transparent in their business and production practices?

Ways to consume CBD

When choosing delivery methods, there are a few options available to you.

If you want straight CBD with no THC, some tinctures and products only have CBD in them. If you’re looking for a more well-rounded product that has the power of the Entourage Effect, you might enjoy a broad-spectrum CBD product.

Oral Consumption

Ingestible forms are available as tinctures, which is a liquid, capsules that can be either powder or liquid, soft gels, and even in a gummy form. The gummy format seems to be what people are drawn to and are delicious.

Topicals

Topicals are a completely different way to use CBD. CBD topicals are products that are formulated and sold as cosmetics and can often include ingredients that have a cooling effect using menthol and can even be moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.

OTC Drug Listed Topicals

A completely different kind of topical in that they have gone through a lengthy validation process and are listed with the FDA as a drug and issued an NDC# (National Drug Code #). These topicals are formulated to address Aches and Pains, Sore muscles and Joints, ACNE, Skin Irritations like rashes, insect bites, poison ivy and more. There are even formulations that address cuts and scrapes. Included in these formulations, as part of the skin nourishing blend, you will find included hemp derived CBD and many other important skin supporting ingredients like Aloe vera, Shea Butter and more.

In Conclusion

CBD isn’t some miracle cannabinoid that will solve all of your problems. Just as the endocannabinoid system is a regulatory systems focused homeostasis in the body by balancing many of its functions, CBD should only be one component of an overall wellness strategy. A healthy diet, movement, and personal growth are all essential aspects of a healthy life. Adding CBD to that regimen has the potential to support your lifelong wellness goals. CBD might be an excellent option for some people dealing with stress, and for others, maybe not. It’s up to you as the individual to find what is right for you.
