Potential Remedy for Immediate Stress Relief
If you're like some of us who have anxiety, some questions you may be asking yourself are how can you decrease symptoms of anxiety? How can you lower stress, and reduce anxious thoughts? Is there anything that can help with anxiety? Luckily, there is some science that indicates that CBD may be helpful!
We have been talking a lot about stress and anxiety over the last few weeks, and how CBD and the endocannabinoid system can help regulate the nervous system, among other body functions. While a daily regimen of CBD oil 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, the ingestion method (or the method of consumption) is an important factor in how we experience the effects of CBD, and how strong the effect is.
Combustible products, such as diffusers
(CBD oil pens/ vaporizers) or pre-rolls
(joints, sm0kes) are some of the most effective ways to get CBD into the body and bloodstream. The heat turns the plant and its cannabinoids into smoke or vapor that we inhale into our lungs, which then makes the CBD available to our bloodstream immediately. This rapid ingestion into the bloodstream allows us to feel the effects of CBD and other cannabinoids within 3-5 minutes. The effects of smoking, vaping, or diffusing 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 CBD oil pen on hand throughout the day can give us relief at a moment's notice. It's also a great addition to a CBD Oil regimen for people experiencing high levels of stress or anxiety at work, home, or school.
