Mothers do not get enough credit. There are no other individuals in the world that are under so much constant pressure and stress. Mom's have to be vigilant 24 hours a day, there is no break and no let ups.
From dropping off the kids, cleaning up the house, making breakfast lunch and supper to picking them up, bathing them and putting them to sleep. And doing this all again each and everyday. Like I said, there is no one that is under as much stress as mothers.
You see, most people in their lives will experience stress but the main difference is that there is a pause to that stress at on point or time which allows the brain and body to recover during those intervals. Mothers on the other hand have no break, no pause, no intervals, just a constant wave of stress and pressure pounding at every moment.
The problem is when you don't have a way to recharge, it builds up tension inside of you until that tension manifests itself into depression and anxiety.
Until recently, the only option for relaxation has been prescription meds that make you into a zombie or alcohol, none of them a viable option.
The issue with meds or alcohol is that they don't help you relax from the inside, they just provide you with a temporary alternate reality.
Now that CBD is getting popular, some mothers are wondering if it will help them.
CBD works in a natural way in our body. The way CBD works is by interacting with your endocannabinoid system via the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our body. The endocannabinoid system is a natural biological part of your body that has been around since you were born.
Endocannabinoids and their receptors, CB1 and CB2, are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the ECS (endogenous cannabinoid system) performs different tasks with the goal of maintaining homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.
Currently, the best way to boost endocannabinoid signaling, improve the regulation of the HPA, and promote a healthy endocrine system is the use of a dietary cannabinoid supplement made from hemp. These products contain naturally occurring cannabinoids, including CBD, which have been shown to naturally increase ECS tone which helps to improve the regulation of homeostasis across the HPA axis. This will improve both the physiological and psychological responses to stress making us more likely to resist the cascade that leads to HPA dysfunction and endocrine-related health problems.
By having a direct impact on CB1 receptors, CBD can affect your serotonin levels – the neurotransmitter that plays a huge role in mood disorders. That is why using CBD oil for anxiety, stress, and depression might prove to be a viable option.
As more and more clinical trials are coming out, we are finding out that CBD can be one of the most important supplements in treating depression and anxiety.
Now that you know what CBD can do, the next step is making sure that the CBD oils that you buy contain actual CBD, no toxicities or contaminants and that it has been extracted properly from the hemp plant.
The best CBD oil should a full spectrum oil, that means all of the phytochemicals including cannabinoids, terpenes have been extracted. Studies have shown that the synergistic properties of all the nutrients in the hemp plant work better than just CBD isolate.
Will CBD get me high?
No, our CBD is from the Hemp plant and is non-psychoactive.
Will it slow me down?
Depending on your level of stress and anxiety, some people during the first two hours feel a little tired but after a few days your body will adjust and you will just feel calmer. One option is to start taking CBD in incremental dosage 2 hours before going to sleep.
Will I still be able to focus and concentrate on what I have to do?
Yes, You will probably be able to focus much better as your brain won't be racing as much.
Will it help me sleep?
Yes, CBD has calming properties which allows your body to relax, therefore you will have an easier time falling asleep and getting a deeper sleep.
