Feeling Stressed? CBD may be the perfect answer for you
November 08, 2021
We all hear "I'm stressed" or "this is stressful" a couple times a week, maybe even a couple times a day. Although we hear it and say it all the time, what does it really mean? Well stress is the body's natural response to pressure or when situations or events pose a challenge to us. Today, there is no medical definition of what stress really is past our body releasing a chemical called cortisol, and most doctors don't even agree if stress is what causes problems or if it’s the result of them. EIther way stress can be detrimental to you living a full and happy life. There are many different ways to help relieve stress, but we at Sivan think the most effective way is by using Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD.
Well what is that? Cannabidiol or CBD, is just one of over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes that come from the hemp plant. CBD works organically to reduce stress without mind altering high that comes from weed or marijuana.
How can a compound that comes from a plant reduce stress? Well CBD works to naturally raise serotonin levels which in turn affects the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Why are serotonin levels important? Well, serotonin is a chemical produced by nerve cells and helps our body regulate critical everyday processes. Serotonin is most commonly known to affect our general level of happiness and is often referred to as a mood stabilizer. Serotonin regulates anxiety, the feeling of pleasure, and our overall mood more generally which all help to reduce stress. So by increasing our serotonin levels, CBD helps regulate our anxiety, happiness, and mood amongst other things which can reduce the stress we experience.
So now that you know more about CBD and how it can help you relieve stress, Why Sivan CBD? Well, Sivan uses full spectrum hemp extract which is the most natural form and as close as one can get to the whole hemp plant. But what does using the whole hemp plant even mean? Well, the hemp plant contains over 100 naturally occurring beneficial compounds in it and with modern technology we can take as much or as little from the plant that we want. Hemp can be refined down into isolates, meaning that they will pull only one specific compound from the hemp plant, leaving all the good compounds behind. They can also be distilled into broad spectrum and full spectrum extracts which incorporate, as the name indicates, a spectrum of compounds. Broad spectrum contains most cannabinoids while full spectrum is completely unrefined and contains everything from CBD to CBG to CBN to CBC etc... Full Spectrum CBD allows our body to fully experience what is known as The Entourage Effect - all cannabinoids working together to provide the most effective and potent benefits possible.
And of course, not every full spectrum oil is made the same either. Quality of the hemp, extraction process, and added ingredients all affect the outcome of the final product. At Sivan CBD, we spare no expense: we use only the highest quality, USA grown hemp which is distilled using top of the line subcritical CO2 extraction. All our CBD products are also vegan, cruelty free and gluten free. And in case you don't believe us, you don't have to just take our word for it, all our CBD products are 3rd party lab tested not only for quality but also for purity. This means that independent laboratories are certifying that we use the cleanest and purest ingredients.
Now that you know and understand not only how CBD can alleviate stress but also why you should pick Sivan CBD, the next important question is what CBD product works best for you? Well that is a very personal question and it might also require some trial and error but here are some tips for getting started:
Sivan offers three main CBD applications: tinctures, gummies and topicals. For right now we are going to focus on the benefits of Tinctures and Gummies since these are the products that offer targeted stress relief.
Sivan offers three targeted benefits through their tincture products: “calm” tinctures, “relief” tinctures, and “sleep” tinctures. These formulas include MCT oil as a carrier which is both vegan and organic and each Tincture is engineered specifically through different cannabinoid blends to achieve their intended benefit. The sleep tinctures will help put you to sleep and stay asleep through heightened levels of CBN while the calm tincture can help with incoming waves of anxiety without inducing drowsiness by incorporating higher levels of CBC. The relief tincture targets pain relief through its wholesome blend of all the cannabinoids. While at face value the calm tincture might be best suited to reduce stress, that's not to say that the other benefits won't have knock-on effects and positively affect your stress levels either. The sleep tincture, while engineered for sleep, is still very likely to help reduce stress as a secondary effect since it still does contain all the cannabinoids present in the other tinctures and it has been proven that being well rested better prepares you for the pressures that life can throw at you. All of Sivan’s tinctures are engineered with a full spectrum extract base and have added cannabinoids that will increase the benefits you receive from each product.
The Gummies are only available in two applications: “calm” gummies and “sleep” gummies. Sivan CBD’s gummies are a delicious way to consume CBD and to get all the other added cannabinoids that make Sivan’s products the best out there. As an added bonus, Sivan CBD incorporates other therapeutic compounds in their gummies like melatonin in their sleep formula and ashwagandha and ginseng in their calm formula. Like the tinctures, the gummies are engineered specifically for their intended benefit and utilize the same full spectrum extracts.
We at Sivan craft unique formulas for each of our hemp products to enhance the effectiveness of each benefit: sleep, pain relief, and stress relief. Find the best Sivan CBD product for you and live life feeling a lot less stressed.
