As we continue to explore the ways hemp-derived CBD can positively impact our lives we must consider its ability to minimize professional stress. If work is your primary source of stress CBD can help professionals to take the edge off, as needed or daily. As a legal substance in all 50 states and a product that provides all the benefits of marijuana without the high—you can take your supplement daily without compromising your cognitive function.
To Ease Stress And Anxiety
If you work in a high-stress position or are a boss, manager, or entrepreneur whose plate is always full—a daily CBD supplement can help to regulate the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol activates your body’s fight or flight response, which is healthy when we are in danger. For example, if we see a bear while hiking in the woods. If your high-pressure job leaves you in a constant state of fight or flight mode it is harmful to your health and can lead to decreased immunity, anxiety, increased blood pressure, trouble sleeping, and more. Take your CBD oil as both a proactive approach during your busy season, maybe during tax season for accountants, or as a reactive approach to minimizing ongoing professional stress.
Balance When You Get Home
CBD can help you to recharge after hours so that you wake balanced, refreshed, and ready to take on the day ahead. Even if your phone keeps ringing and emails and text messages keep coming in after you leave work for the day, you should have a set time each evening that you unplug. For example, 2 hours before you go to bed. You should also have unplugged chunks of time, like during family dinner, date night, or while at your kid’s soccer game. This unplugged time is essential for maintaining fulfilling personal relationships and for achieving work-life balance, which will always boost your performance at work. Since stress can minimize your sex drive, your CBD supplement can improve your intimacy.
Improved Clarity And Focus
While marijuana’s psychotropic effect temporarily minimizes clarity and focus, hemp-based CBD has the opposite effect. By optimizing the brain and mood-boosting hormone serotonin you will be better able to focus on the tasks at hand. The impact of improved focus is further accelerated if you are also experiencing anxiety, which often leads to mind-wandering worry.
Boost Overall Health
The benefits of CBD are incredibly diverse. It is the only substance (either natural or synthetic) that activates and connect your body’s endocannabinoid system and CB1 and CB2 receptors, balancing your body from the inside out. This will do everything from:
- Minimize pain and inflammation
- Improve sleep
- Boost immunity
- Promote heart health
- Minimize depression, stress, and anxiety
- Regulate hormones
- Improve memory
- And more!
While CBD is legal in all 50 states many schools, companies, and state and federal organizations have policies against using any form of cannabis. Although it is unlikely, there is no guarantee that hemp-based CBD will pass a drug test. So, if you are not a self-employed entrepreneur you must be mindful of your company policies. If no policies restrict your supplement use we invite you to browse the CBD products from Holmes Organics!
