CBD gummies were the third most searched for food by Americans in 2018. Like all products with CBD as the base ingredient, they’ve been flying off the shelves, with more and more people turning to cannabidiol products to help manage their ailments. The chemical is one of over 100 cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant, and it is said to be a versatile and potent natural medicine.
According to anecdotal evidence, cannabidiol is effective against a variety of medical conditions including chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia. Most of these claims haven’t been scientifically proven yet.
However, tons of studies have found that while cannabidiol can’t be called a cure-all yet, it has the ability to eliminate some symptoms that make these conditions so intolerable. Symptoms like insomnia, pain, and anxiety.
Stress is a condition that affects a large number of people, with more than 77% of American citizens reporting feeling stressed in 2017. At least a third of them noted that they live with extreme stress every day. To make matters worse, at least 50% believed their stress had increased significantly over the past five years.
So how does cannabidiol work against stress? First, we’ll have to discuss the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a peripheral nervous system that helps regulate a range of functions including sleep, mood, appetite, and memory. These are functions that contribute to homeostasis, or the internal balance of the body.
The stress hormone cortisol is released to tell your body to prepare for a fight or flight situation. Chronic stress makes the body produce higher levels of cortisol, and it leaves a lot of damage in its wake, including a weakened immune system, heart disease, depression, and fatigue.
The cannabidiol in CBD gummies works by interacts with the ECS. When the high levels of cortisol are produced, the body goes into fight or flight mode, and your brain learns to focus less and stay alert for any incoming stress. This leaves your system in a state of imbalance, and that’s where the endocannabinoid system kicks in.
The system is concerned with keeping the balance, and when you take a CBD gummy, the CBD interacts with the ECS and boosts it, allowing it to perform its duties, such as more effective hormone regulation, and reduce your stress levels.
The beauty of using gummy bears to get your daily dose of CBD is that they’re extremely convenient. They can be easily packed and stored discreetly in public, and they’re innocuous enough that no one will take a second look at you as you pop one in your mouth.
However, make sure you consult your physician before using CBD gummies, especially if you’re on other medications. Experts say this is the same advice echoed by CBD companies like No Borders Inc. (OTC: NBDR) in any literature talking about cannabidiol use.
