In just a few short weeks, Coronavirus has seemed to impact nearly every part of our lives – our kids are home from school, many of us have had to start working from home, and our recreational and social outlets have been put on hold. These changes are keeping us inside and forcing us to adapt to a completely new way of life for the foreseeable future. This uncertainty can be unsettling to say the least, and many of us are experiencing increased fear, anxiety, and sleep deprivation, all of which have the power to compromise our immune systems.
While Flourish + Live Well, unfortunately, cannot provide a miraculous cure-all for this situation, we do have several products that can ease the secondary effects of this global pandemic and offer some relief in these strange times. Here are some of the ways in which CBD can offer anxiety relief, sleep aid, and boost immune response:
Studies have shown that CBD can reduce anxiety, lower the frequency of panic attacks, and act as a stress reliever. This is likely due to Cbd’s ability to reduce activity in the brain receptors, a major contributor to increased anxiety. Because of this, CBD products can be particularly helpful tools to cope with coronavirus stress. Our favorite CBD anxiety relievers are:
Flourish + Live Well Mint Flavor Full Spectrum 3000mg CBD Tincture Our mint flavored 2 oz. full spectrum tincture comes in a 3000mg tincture and is great for stress, anxiety, and sleep. Made with MCT oil in sunny Southern California.
Insomnia and sleep deprivation are never good things, but especially in stressful and uncertain times. Luckily, there is strong evidence supporting CBD’s ability to help promote healthy sleep patterns- in large part due to its calming influence. Some of our favorite CBD sleep aids are:
- Coastal Clouds Sleep Capsules CBD paired with valerian root works symbiotically with your body’s natural chemistry, promoting a feeling of tranquility. This mix is balanced and ultimately relaxes the mind and encourages a rejuvenating night’s rest.
Greenlife Organics Sleep Gummies These gummies are an effective and delicious way to quickly nourish and replenish tired cells while restoring balance to your endocannabinoid system. With a small bit of melatonin, these flavorful and convenient chews promote healthy sleep which brings you back to physical and mental equilibrium.
IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER
Along with staying calm and well-rested, maintaining a strong immune system is crucial in order to prevent and fight infectious diseases, including COVID-19. Along with maintaining a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water, taking CBD Oil can also boost immune system response. We recommend:
Canna River Lemon Raspberry Formulated to help your body rejuvenate and restore, this tincture supports your immune system while increasing a sense of calm and relaxation. Since relaxation is an important part of the body’s ability immune system, this tincture will help you simply feel your best.
Along with our wellness recommendations, we want to remind our community that amidst the uncertainty and challenges, times of crisis also present opportunity: less polarization, a revived appreciation for our community and loved ones, and a chance to slow down and appreciate life’s simple pleasures. While no one knows exactly how and when this situation will resolve, we do know that we will all get through this. So in the meantime, let’s continue to Flourish + Live Well, together.
