How CBD Can Support Your Mental Health
Posted on: May 16, 2022
Here at Sacred Essentials™, we believe that by breaking the stigmas and misconceptions around CBD that we can help more people realize its potential health and wellness benefits, which include helping to support mental health.
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, we are shedding light on how CBD can work with your body’s natural endocannabinoid system to help reduce stress, promote better sleep, and relieve the pain and inflammation that can interfere with your everyday life.
Rising Interest in Using CBD to Support Mental Health
Hemp-derived CBD oil has been gaining popularity since it become federally legal with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill. Since then, more consumers have become aware of CBD and its potential health and wellness benefits as well as its differentiation from THC – specifically, that unlike THC, CBD does not produce a psychoactive “high”. As a result, interest in CBD products skyrocketed with more individuals becoming open to learning more and incorporating it into their daily wellness routines.
CBD and The Endocannabinoid System
According to Healthline, the endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a complex cell-signaling system that plays a role in regulating a range of functions and processes, including sleep, mood, appetite, chronic pain, and inflammation. While the exact details require additional studies, research suggests that CBD has the ability to work with the ECS to help regulate these functions. This is why you may have heard from CBD users that they have experienced benefits including reduced pain and inflammation, better sleep, and reduced stress and anxiety.
CBD Products for Your Daily Mental Health Routine
While more research needs to be done in order to prove how CBD impacts mental health, many users have reported that regular use helps to promote a sense of calm, focus, and overall wellbeing. Others have reported that nighttime CBD oil usage helps promote rest, relaxation, and better sleep, which can contribute to improved mental health. In fact, at Sacred Essentials™, we have heard directly from our customers that our products have helped them achieve these benefits.
