Anxiety and stress are the norms, especially with the generally fast-paced lifestyle of today. However, it can be debilitating for some, and can severely affect your performance, your immune system, and even your confidence levels. Thankfully, for these individuals, an effective natural remedy exists. Cannabis sativa or hemp tinctures, taken as a daily supplement, can provide anxiety and stress management solutions.
At Cedar Creek, we have perfected the employment of sub-critical CO2 extraction, in order to ensure the best and most effective hemp extract for our tinctures and other products. The purpose of the extraction is to capture the cannabinoids from the Cannabis plant - the active compounds that render the numerous health benefits that we all desire. The most prominent cannabinoid in Cannabis sativa strains is cannabidiol or CBD. CBD is non-psychoactive and will not result in the "high" that is commonly associated with the cannabis compound/cannabinoid THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). CBD has been researched as a supplement that may assist with a wide range of ailments. Many people have found relief from disorders such as chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety by using CBD. CBD has also gained attention for the potential to ease ailments related to the nervous system. Research suggests that CBD may assist in treating neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Drawids Syndrome, and multiple sclerosis.
Supplementation with CBD oil has been shown to elevate moods, and this is no surprise because CBD activates a type of serotonin receptor in the brain. Serotonin is the “happy hormone” of the body, which also contributes towards anxiety and stress relief as this interaction renders a calming effect on the central nervous system. Not only will CBD assist your overall health, but it will leave you feeling good, too!
Furthermore, CBD has been infused into topical creams for sports injuries and general areas of pain for individuals suffering from chronic pain diseases. This is for two reasons. Firstly, CBD dilates your blood vessels and facilitates the flow of fresh, oxygenated blood through them. A higher oxygen supply allows for faster healing and leads to increased recovery rates. Secondly, CBD interacts will receptors on our immune cells, resulting in an anti-inflammatory effect, which also renders relief to symptoms of pain. So even if you are a healthy individual, CBD still has benefits to offer and can help you reach your fitness goals.
