Too Stressed Out To Function? Here’s How CBD Can Help

CBD is known for treating stress, depression and anxiety — symptoms you might be experiencing due to coronavirus.

With the emergence of the coronavirus, our daily lives have shifted dramatically.

With a steady increase in COVID-19 cases all over the country, a large percentage of businesses were forced to close for an indeterminate amount of time, with millions of people losing their jobs and the economy taking a plunge. This environment can make anyone question their mental health, shifting their routines, forcing them to spend long hours at home and ruminate about everything that’s wrong with the world.

Isolation, cabin-fever and stress are affecting all of us to different degrees. While some have acclimated to this change, others are experiencing a lot of discomfort with symptoms of depression, stress and anxiety. With a limited range of options, this might be the right time to give CBD a try.

CBD products are known for treating a wide range of mental health symptoms without getting people high or introducing THC’s very common bouts of paranoia, which might not be the best idea for someone who’s struggling with anxiety. Plenty of research conducted on rodents shows that CBD can aptly treat stress and anxiety, with almost all studies showing positive results for the rodents who consumed CBD.

While experiments conducted on humans are not that common due to CBD’s complex legal standing, plenty of testimonials from users claim that CBD is a beneficial supplement when it comes to treating different kinds of anxiety.
