We are always discussing wellness in terms of the mind-body connection, with optimal health achieved only when both are working in perfect tandem. Physical ailments and pain have been known to weigh heavily on our mental health. Anxiety and emotional pain have been proven to contribute to physical aches and muscle tension.
Anyone who has ever experienced pain, inflammation or anxiety knows how exhausting and frustrating it can be. From an acute injury to a chronic condition, an annoying twinge to nagging, unrelenting discomfort, pain is no joke. Similarly, anxiety changes the way we live our lives and the way we interact with the world.
For nearly a year now, we have been sharing the many benefits of CBD with our clients – specifically as a treatment for inflammation, pain and anxiety. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Taken as a daily supplement, whether in gummy form (the lowest dosage and a great place to begin), gel capsules (our most popular and mainstream option), as a topical salve or massage oil, the results are real and changing lives one shoulder, elbow, knee or anxiety attack at a time.
For those who are unfamiliar with CBD, it’s cannabidiol oil, extracted from the cannabis plant. It is NOT, however, marijuana; it contains none of the psychotropic THC that altars the mental state. CBD disrupts pain receptors, calms inflammation and quiets anxiety, so sure, you might feel like you’re on cloud nine but we can assure you that you won’t be floating in the clouds.
