Diffusing Stress with Combustibles and Diffusers

Breathe Easy baby!

Potential Remedy for Immediate Relief Now!

We have been talking a lot about stress and anxiety over the last few weeks and how CBD and the endocannabinoid system helps regulate operations within the body and nervous system. While a daily regimen of CBD can help minimize anxious symptoms and increase our ability to handle stress, sometimes there are moments where we need immediate relief and calm.

When it comes to CBD and cannabis-based products, ingestion method, or the method of consumption, is an important factor in how we experience the effects of these products.

Combustible products, such as diffusers (CBD Pens/ vaporizers) or pre-rolls (joints, sm0kes) turn the plant and its cannabinoids into smoke and vapor that we inhale into our lungs, which then enter the bloodstream directly. This rapid ingestion into the bloodstream allows us to feel the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids within 3-5 minutes. The effects of combusting CBD can last between 1-2 hours.

With the fast-acting relief provided in combustible products, they are an obvious choice for use for immediate relief from high-stress situations and pain.

Keeping a pen on hand throughout the day can give us relief at any moment. It’s also a great addition to a tincture regimen for people experiencing high levels of discomfort throughout the day.

Relief for Feeling Overwhelmed

HOW DOES THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM INFLUENCE STRESS?

Everyone, both men AND women, have an endocannabinoid system in their body. The purpose of this system, in short, is to facilitate homeostasis in the body.

“The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) is believed to help modulate a wide range of physiological processes, including pain sensation, body temperature, memory, mood, appetite… sleep, metabolism, immune function, and reproduction.” (3)

In this system, neurotransmitters called “endocannabinoids” communicate and regulate homeostasis. Cannabidiol (CBD) interacts with and fuels this system. While stress can prompt the body to engage in the “fight or flight” state, our natural fear response, the endocannabinoid system can step in to slow the roll of stress chemicals, relieving tension in the body.

HOW CAN HEMP SUPPORT THIS PROCESS AND HOMEOSTASIS?

By feeding your ECS, you can potentially increase your threshold to deal with stress. This can potentially increase your ability to calmly engage in situations that might otherwise stress you out. By feeding this system that pumps the brakes on stress responses, the ECS has the potential to take unnecessary stress and anxiety away. (4)

There is currently a lot of research being done to support these ideas, but the research that has already taken place, coupled with the anecdotal stories of thousands experiencing success in using this plant to manage stress and panic attacks, is promising.

Types of Cannabis – An Infographic Representation

Cannabis refers to varieties of the Cannabis genus of flowering plants. This genus comprises two distinct types, known as hemp and marijuana. Marijuana is a variety of cannabis that has been cultivated to produce substantial amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is a psychoactive chemical.

Cannabis sativa, commonly known as marijuana, originated in Central Asia but is grown worldwide since the 20th century. The flowering tops and resin of the female plant are used by consumers, made into joints, or baked into food. It can be smoked or eaten, with preparation methods varying by recipe and purpose.

While there are tons of CBD Hemp Flower strains, we’re going to break them down into two general categories named Sativas and Indicas.

Most heavy Indica smokers like to smoke at night because that’s when they want to wind down after a long day. Likewise, Sativa smokers typically smoke in the morning to get motivated for the day ahead.
