Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common condition that affects nearly 10% of children and 3% of adults worldwide. ADHD symptoms include low focus, poor concentration, and short attention spans, and often results in high levels of anxiety and depression for many patients.
Treatment for ADHD often includes strong medication and therapy. However, natural options like CBD have been growing in popularity in recent years. CBD can help mental clarity by interacting with ECS receptors throughout the brain and nervous system to regulate many body processes, including stabilising energy levels, reducing hyperactivity, and improving focus. In particular, CBD oil can ease anxiety and stress, a major symptom of ADHD as noted above.
CBD products are one of the fastest-growing trends in the pet industry. As a result, a large number of owners are coming into contact with CBD for dogs for the first time.

Anxiety disorders affect 40 million adults in the United States alone— approximately 18.1% of the population. Though these results are staggering, it’s not too surprising given our demanding schedules balancing careers, families, relationships, and finances. These elements contribute to an ever-constant feeling of anxiety for many adults, and put our overall well-being at risk.
In response, there has been a growing interest in wellness products and activities to combat these feelings of stress and anxiety. CBD and yoga are among the most popular methods— with their popularity growing rapidly over the last several years. CBD has been scientifically proven to help with anxiety, in addition to relieving pain, decreasing inflammation, and promoting positive moods. Similarly, many people practice yoga as a way to calm down, go inward, and let go. But recently, people have been combining these two practices and the results have been astounding.

April 20th or 4/20 has become known around the world as a holiday for cannabis culture by users and non-users alike, but few actually know the origins behind this date.
Some say “420” is code among police officers for “marijuana smoking in progress”. Others note 4/20 is Adolf Hitler’s birthday. And even look to Bob Dylan’s song “Rainy Day Women #12 & 35” because 12 multiplied by 35 equals 420.
