Did you know that 70 percent of all doctor office visits are stress related?

Let’s face it: we all with dealing with stress in our daily lives. Financial problems, family problems, job-related problems, social problems can all contribute to stress to varying degrees.

While stress is inevitable and a normal part of life, prolonged stress is another story. More and more research shows that chronic stress impacts our health negatively and in ways, similar to a poor diet or a lack of sleep.

So what can you do to deal with stress?

There are several treatments and methods out there that can help you relieve stress—in a natural way. One such treatment approach involves the use of CBD oil.

CBD oil as a stress reliever

There is plenty of anecdotal and scientific evidence available that shows how CBD oil tackles stress quite effectively.

When in chronic stress, the human nervous system undergoes several structural and chemical changes. Certain regions of the brain become hyperactive while others, like the hippocampus, shrink. In addition, the levels of mood-regulating neurotransmitters and their receptors also change in an undesirable way.

CBD oil relieves stress by reverting the changes which take place inside the nervous system due to stress.

Firstly, it stimulates neural regeneration through the process of neurogenesis. Studies have revealed that CBD oil boosts the formation of new neurons and promotes the development of new connections between existing neurons, particularly in the hippocampus of the brain.

Secondly, it makes mood-regulating neurotransmitters, like serotonin, more accessible to the brain by slowing down their reabsorption. In one clinical trial, Spanish researchers found that CBD oil inhibited the reuptake of serotonin by enhancing the transmission of 5-HT1A, a type of serotonin receptor.

Both these physiological and physicochemical responses play a pivotal role in combatting stress.

Can you use CBD oil to relieve your stress?

While there’s no doubting the fact that CBD oil has proven to be effective for many people in helping them relieve stress, any CBD oil treatment should only be started after consulting your doctor.

I’m Nancy and no, I didn’t always look like I do in that picture on the right. My foray into health and fitness began as a brace-faced, 16 year-old who was too afraid to wear a two-piece at the beach because I felt my body paled in comparison to my much more toned friends.
