Stress and Anxiety is sometimes an energy we can't seem to escape in this modern-day life.
We seek out many forms of mindfulness tools and practices which all have effectiveness in their right, but may not always be achievable with children, work, and everyday life commitments. If we can start with a simple, yet effect routine, we may be able to help calm the mind so that life can be approached in a way that lifts us up.
Anxiety can show itself in a number of forms, from experiencing a sense of dread or doom, restlessness, feeling on edge, poor concentration, insomnia, feeling tired, feeling agitated to name a few.
Our low THC Cannabis Sativa range is a beautifully formulated blend to capture the entire cannabinoid profile. Cannabinoids, CBD included, have been found to help reduce stress and anxiety. This is because our endocannabinoid system appears to be involved in the regulation of anxiety, the evidence is in the high density of CB1 receptors located in the three parts of the brain involved with anxiety. You see cannabinoids from the cannabis work with the CB1 and CB2 receptors scattered throughout the body which allows the phyto-cannabinoids from the plant to enhance the endogenous cannabinoids that make up the endocannabinoid system.
Anxiety has been linked to issues with the endocannabinoid system enzymes which synthesise and degrade endocannabinoids. When anomalies lead to less fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) (an enzyme shown to breakdown anandamide), and subsequently more anandamide is a positive as it's known as the bliss molecule, and therefore anxiety is potentially reduced.
Balance within the endocannabinoid system is key for maintaining appropriate stress and anxiety responses and therefore it could be agreed that working with cannabinoids could encourage balance within this system, gently increasing endocannabinoid levels if these are depleted.
