Can CBD help with Coronavirus stress?
As coronavirus impacts on the world, many of us are feeling understandably stressed or anxious about the situation. It is quite a scary and confusing time, with many people concerned about the health of themselves, their family and friends, as well as financial worries and separation from loved ones.
It is natural to feel a range of emotions during the pandemic and it is important to look after your physical and mental wellbeing.
CBD products such as CBD oil, have potential health benefits including helping to aid a deep sleep, reducing stress and anxiety as well as helping to achieve mental clarity.
During this coronavirus pandemic, many people are looking for ways to manage their stress and anxiety. In places such as California, Cannabis and CBD dispensaries have been deemed an ‘essential service’ and remained open along with pharmacies and food stores. Sales are also shown to have increased by over 100% for some CBD suppliers.
The benefits of CBD Oil
Extracted from hemp seed oil and hemp plants, CBD is an active chemical with sleep-inducing and anxiety-reducing properties.
CBD oil is a concentrated product that is taken orally through sublingual administration, which means you put it under your tongue for it to dissolve and absorb into your blood. This could be considered one of the healthier ways to take CBD rather than vaping, smoking or inhaling, especially if you feel your immune system is low.
At CBDology, our high-quality CBD oil is our best-selling product and available in a range of strengths from a subtle 2.75% CBD up to 25% CBD. All of our products meet the necessary UK & EU requirements and THC free, consisting only of high-quality CBD and organic hemp oil or inferior Phyto-cannabinoids such as CBDa.
Please note that CBD oil is in pure form and not designed for vaping if you are looking for a CBD product for vaping, we have a wide range of CBD vape liquids available.
According to on-going scientific research from around the world, there are many potential medical benefits to the use of CBD for anxiety, pain management, and help with sleep deprivation. However, our CBD products at CBDology are not intended to diagnose treat or cure any disease, and it is recommended that you speak to your GP or a qualified healthcare professional regarding your usage.
