Between the Covid-19 virus, quarantines, conflicting information, political divide, conspiracy theories and racial inequalities, many of us are overwhelmed, stressed and anxious. Being kept apart from friends and family intensifies these feelings.
According to Psychology Today, when forced to disconnect from others and limit our activities due to social distancing, we are mimicking the patterns of being in a depressed state. It is almost inevitable that we will struggle with feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and isolation.
Adding Organic Full Spectrum Hemp CBD Oil to your daily health regimen can not only ease anxiety and stress, it can help you obtain a sense of balance and focus. When the mind is quieted, it can more objectively examine the information it is fed. CBD can help us live in the moment and foster acceptance instead of spiraling down a rabbit hole of fear. CBD offers an opportunity for each of us to take control of our well-being.
CBD is also recognized for promoting relaxation, assisting the immune system, strengthening the body’s normal inflammatory response, addressing discomfort and more.
How does CBD work?
All humans (and all animals with the exception of insects) have a biochemical communication system called the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS regulates the peripheral and central nervous system (including the brain), immunological system, organs, and vital physiological functions. It ensures that the major systems of the body work synergistically. When there is a deficiency of endocannabinoid production, the ECS’s CB1 and CB2 receptors utilize the addition of phytocannabinoids (plant based cannabinoids, including those found in hemp) to help create calm, balance and ease and provide support for relaxing, repairing or restoring.
Although CBD does not interact directly with these cannabinoid receptors, it does stimulate the ECS to produce its own cannabinoids by removing the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), an enzyme that breaks down Anandamide. By eliminating FAAH, the amount of Anandamide in the body increases. This means that CBD helps more endocannabinoids remain in the bloodstream for the body to utilize.
For many people, the benefits of CBD can be felt within a half hour of ingesting. We have found that sublingual application of Auntie Dolores dropper bottles – 1500 milligram oil with an invigorating flavor of cinnamon spice and a 750 milligram unflavored oil – are absorbed quickly with results being felt even sooner. We also offer CBD in the form of 25 milligram gel capsules, which is absorbed into the bloodstream through the small intestine, offering quick relief.
Our proprietary cryogenically extracted CBD is sourced from organic hemp, is non-psychoactive and non-toxic. We go a step further to ensure purity, using a thermal separation technique that destroys any and all pathogens and contaminants, while keeping the integrity of the cannabinoids, terpenes and other natural compounds intact.
