As mentioned above, CBD offers a wide array of potential medicinal and therapeutic health benefits.
For college students, CBD can be especially beneficial. Here is the series of problems CBD can help with:
Let’s face it, not everyone has the social presence of Beyoncé.
Many of us suffer from social anxiety whether for speaking in front of a class or approaching a possible crush.
This sort of crippling fear can be hard to shake and may even get worse as time goes on.
CBD has relaxing properties that may potentially provide a calm, peaceful state of mind when taken.
Its common to feel nervous before a big exam, especially if you didn’t do so well on the last one.
Even after you put in hours of studying, you may suddenly blank when it’s finally time to take the exam.
We naturally put pressure on ourselves to succeed which can adversely affect our memory, causing us to “blank.”
CBD may help ease feelings of nervousness and anxiety before an exam, promoting a clearer state of thinking2.
There’s a slim chance that you will never have a continuous sleep schedule throughout college.
Between class, work, studying, and extracurricular activities, sleep almost becomes secondary.
Getting enough sleep not only helps our body repair itself, but it also allows our body to refocus on the next day ahead.
Sleep is one of the main functions controlled by the ECS and taking CBD before bed can promote a positive and healthy sleep cycle.
Whether you’re a student athlete, intramural warrior, or trying to shed off the “Freshman 15”, staying active is key to maintaining physical and mental physique.
While in the physical prime of your life, you may experience injury, along with muscle or joint pain.
CBD may be great for relieving pain due to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Overall Mental Health
Factors such as parental expectations, overwhelming workloads, and impending thoughts of the future can really put a damper on a student’s mental health.
Students become anxious over these factors which can lead to stress, panic attacks, and possibly even depression.
CBD’s calming properties may help students slow down their spiraling thought process and help recalibrate their thinking.
