Whether you are sitting in traffic, need to meet a deadline or running late because you slept in past your alarm; stressful situations come about every single day. It’s not always easy to deal with the stress and anxiety that life throws our way; but finding the right way to cope is essential to a healthy lifestyle. Stress, anxiety and depression can take a toll on your relationships with those around you. Kristin, 40-year-old male, takes CBD daily to help with a variety of conditions that use to take a toll on his everyday life and relationships.
Kristin was on the verge of losing his job along with his wife considering divorce due to the anger and emotional issues that came with his chronic stress, anxiety and depression. Once he began to consume CBD, within just a few months his boss and wife could both see a dramatic difference in his health.
“I was at my wits end and about to give up on all my relationships and throw away all I had worked for up to that point in my life and give up,” said Kristin about his life before taking Infinite CBD.
Four months ago, Kristin began consumption of Infinite CBD products. He has found that a daily dose allows him to be the most functional at home and work without having to deal with crazy perscription medication side effects. Prescription medication that doctor’s order for a variety of conditions “always had negative effects along side the positive ones.” Unlike prescriptions, our CBD products provide Kristin the ability to not feel “on edge” all the time.
After Taking CBD
After just a few months of taking CBD, Kristin notices many positive changes in his life. Extreme stress, anxiety and depression all managed to squeeze into his daily life and affect it in a negative manner. Experiencing how CBD works on his own body and how it helps him has been life changing.
Adding a daily amount of CBD allows Kristin to live a more peaceful life. His relationships are not at risk and his lifestyle is much more at ease. According to helpguide.com, “Your nervous system isn’t very good at distinguishing between emotional and physical threats. If you’re super stressed over an argument with a friend, a work deadline, or a mountain of bills, your body can react just as strongly as if you’re facing a true life-or-death situation. The more your emergency stress system is activated, the easier it is to trip and the harder it is to shut off.”
Kristin takes two doses of CBD daily to manage his stress, anxiety, depression and pain. He normally sticks to a dose of at least 5 mg at a time but sometimes he will add an extra third dose into the mix if he is feeling more on edge than normal. After a long day at work or overall stressful day Kristin will up the dose at night to wind down for bed.
When a stressful situation arises, Kristin experiences a change in mood which can result in an anger outbreak. These typically happen at work or while away from home so access to CBD is limited. A daily regimen of CBD controls outbreaks but sometimes a quick vape or a few drops under the tongue are necessary to get through the day.
Kristin is a customer of Infinite CBD who has purchased all of our products; vape cartridges, capsules, dropper and Absolute Zero. Among them all, he enjoys vaping with our cartridge; specifically because of the additional cannabis derived terpenes. When looking for an easy and precise dose, he uses a few drops from the dropper.
Although prescription medications are given by a doctor with your best interest in mind, they often come with undesirable side effects. The pain and discomfort you felt before might diminish but internal damage, rapid heartbeat, headache, nausea, dizziness and more are now all present. Ultimately these side effects can take a bigger toll on the body. If your body is already weakened by an illness or disease, negative side effects can intensify and worsen how you feel. Clinical trials and research on each prescription medication is performed but the FDA regulations allow side effects, if the benefits outweigh the risks.
Playing with medicine is scary. Kristin described how his doctor handled his medicine as “a guessing game.” Prescriptions would always get switched because a tolerance was built up or they did not work for his conditions. Time and time again he was trying new prescriptions that may or may not be beneficial to him and his conditions. He soon realized that he was just getting treated like a guinea pig because his doctor wasn’t sure if the medicines he was prescribing would even work.
Since switching to CBD, Kristin likes himself more rather than when on prescriptions. He feels more mellow rather than constantly worrying about what kind of side effects he would experience that day. Overall Kristin is less uptight throughout his entire mind and body. Even better, he no longer has to worry about dealing with extra stress, irregular heartbeat, chest pain, anger outbreaks and shortness of breath due to the prescription medications. CBD virtually has no side effects leaving you clear headed and feeling good throughout the day.
Stress on a daily basis is not good for your overall health and those around you. If taking prescription medications does not work for you or you experience severe negative side effects it could be time to explore natural options.
Samir Haj-Dahmane at Buffalo University, the senior research scientist in UB’s Research Institute on Addictions claims that “Chronic stress is one of the major causes of depression.” He continues; “Using compounds derived from cannabis – marijuana – to restore normal endocannabinoid function could potentially help stabilize moods and ease depression.”
Dealing with anxiety is something everyone faces from time to time. Typically these feelings are temporary and will go away overtime. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxious feeling doesn’t go away. There are various types and symptoms that are triggered differently.
The endocannabinoid system is responsible for a wide-range of disorders that occur throughout the body. When cannabinoids, including CBD, and the endocannabinoid system work together it is shown to reverse the effects on various conditions, such as anxiety.
