So one thing we should talk more about, stress and the effect it has on us, o and of course cannabis. I am a firm believer that we must be mindful of our bodies, we must give ourselves the time of day to recover from our days of go, go, go. We are constantly on high alert, from waiting for the next social media alert to the next notification on your phone, or the next big project at work, or the next bill we have to pay. Face it we are constantly on high alert, the stress factors are endless and thanks to technology constant and in the palm of our hands.

According to American Psychological Association:

Cognitive symptoms:

  • Memory problems
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Poor judgment
  • Seeing only the negative
  • Anxious or racing thoughts
  • Constant worrying

Emotional symptoms:

  • Depression or general unhappiness
  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Moodiness, irritability, or anger
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Other mental or emotional health problems

Physical symptoms:

  • Aches and pains
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Nausea, dizziness
  • Chest pain, rapid heart rate
  • Loss of sex drive
  • Frequent colds or flu

Behavioral symptoms:

  • Eating more or less
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Withdrawing from others
  • Procrastinating or neglecting responsibilities
  • Using alcohol, cigarettes, or drugs to relax
  • Nervous habits (e.g. nail biting, pacing)

So let’s just agree, life can get a little stressful…but what happens when introducing our favorite cure, cannabis. Marijuana for stress offers you a non-harmful, non-addictive alternative to find relief when you’re having a difficult time. CBD and THC work together to alleviate stress, these compounds replace your endocannabinoid system’s missing chemicals and act as a mood stabilizer, essentially erasing your anxiety and stress.
