According to the Mental Health Foundation, 74% of people in the UK have experienced overwhelming levels of stress this year.  If you’re one of the lucky ones who hasn’t been at the edge of a nervous breakdown, I’m jealous (but I’d be surprised if the effects of Coronavirus haven’t left you feeling out of sorts).  I’m here to explain why the use of CBD oil would benefit us all during these uncertain times. 

Before I begin, let’s not forget that there has been limited scientific research on the effects of CBD on Covid-19.  However, there has been positive feedback on the anti-inflammation, anti-anxiety and immune-stimulating properties of CBD oil that are likely to help protect us against COVID, both physically and mentally. 

There are 1.6 million daily users of CBD in the UK, but what exactly is it?

Cannabidiol (CBD), is a product that comes from marijuana plants – and no, it won’t get you high!  The ‘high’ comes from a different cannabinoid called THC.  CBD works with our bodies, supporting our endocannabinoid system so it is a safe and natural method of combating illnesses, whether they are physical or mental ones!

How can it help with issues caused by Covid-19?

Stress and anxiety are rising problems – and Coronavirus has enhanced these issues for many people.  Now, more than ever, it is important to look after our mental wellbeing, as stress threatens our physical health. 

Feeling low? 

Although CBD is not intoxicating, it positively affects our mood as it acts on serotonin receptors (serotonin stabilises our mood, feelings of well-being, and happiness).

Having trouble sleeping?

CBD helps to regulate cortisol (a stress hormone) which significantly impacts non-REM sleep cycles. 
CBD oil is a natural way to reduce the daily stress that is preventing you from being you!  Our oils are available in 500mg, 1,000mg and 1,500mg dosages here.
