How CBD Can Help You Stress LESS
2020 has certainly ushered in its own set of unique challenges. Between COVID-19, the current political election ( y'all, please VOTE!) and the general day-to-day disruptions to our normal routines, I think it's fair to say stress levels have been at an all time high. And, it’s no secret how harmful stress can be to our overall wellbeing.
When our bodies are stressed, it triggers the release of a hormone called cortisol into the bloodstream. This hormone is often called the “stress hormone,” and causes an increase in our heart rate and blood pressure. Knowing how disruptive, yet common, stress can be, BROWN GIRL Jane designed a collection, harnessing the power of CBD, intended to help you live a healthier lifestyle and reduce your daily stress levels.
CBD is simply the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids, or compounds, found in the hemp plant and has been used for thousands of years for wellness. It works by interacting with our Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is one of the body’s major regulatory systems helping us to achieve homeostasis, which simply means that it keeps our bodies balanced and running smoothly. The ECS helps regulate our nervous system, digestive system, immune system and you guessed it....our stress and mood, too!
The endocannabinoid system is made up of a series of receptors distributed throughout the body, namely CB1 and CB2 receptors. These receptors positively interact with CBD allowing our stress levels to be better managed and controlled. It's that simple!
It’s important to know that when you are stressed, your body is not in balance. Our best-selling Balance tincture is specially designed to help you remain centered and can be taken easily under the tongue or with food each day. Research indicates that consistency is important for CBD use since it can build up in the body over time so we recommend incorporating it into your daily routine beyond just those occasional moments you may feel stressed.
So, grab your BROWN GIRL Jane and keep your stress at bay - because although feeling stressed is all too common with these days...we got you,sis!
