The common effects of stress can range from upset stomach to irritability, social withdrawal, sleep issues, chest pain, headaches, and much more. When stress is left unmanaged, it can take a serious toll on our physical and mental health. Rather than taking NSAIDs and prescription medication that may only address a few of the symptoms of stress, CBD may provide an alternative option for addressing the underlying cause.
CBD works by interacting with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system is a biochemical communicative system that’s responsible for critical bodily functions. This inhibitory feedback mechanism is triggered whenever CBD is introduced, cooling the body’s response to stress. By giving your body a push towards homeostasis, stress relief may be achieved with CBD.
