Stress is built into your brain, and as much as it’s uncomfortable, it’s your brain and body’s biological response to perceived danger. This natural function was crucial if a saber-toothed tiger was chasing you, but sometimes our mind isn’t equipped well enough to note the difference between taking a test or giving a speech and survival.
Recognizing that anxiety as it relates to discomfort or nervousness is a temporary and controllable reaction to stress, and the long-lasting and life-altering nature of an anxiety disorder are entirely different is at the core of understanding anxiety and stress. Whether you’re struggling with frequent panic attacks due to a panic disorder, debilitating fear of crowds or being around other people due to a social anxiety disorder, or feeling constantly restless and worried without an apparent reason due to a generalized anxiety disorder, any type of anxiety disorder makes it difﬁcult to function normally and enjoy life.
Anxiety can be difficult to treat.
The statistics state that of the 40 million Americans who suffer from anxiety or anxiety-related disorders, or about 18% of the adult population, only 36% receive treatment. Conventional treatment for anxiety disorders often includes costly medications like antidepressants or benzodiazepines. These drugs carry with them serious side effects such as insomnia, weight gain, headaches, sexual dysfunction, and even dependence.
Your Brain Is Being Tricked
According to biological theories, panic disorder symptoms can be attributed to chemical imbalances in the brain. Naturally occurring chemical messengers, known as neurotransmitters, send information throughout the brain. The neurotransmitters serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) are specially believed to be linked to mood and anxiety. These neurotransmitters are in charge of regulating various body functions and emotions.
The Happy Hormone – Serotonin
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is associated mainly with mood, sleep, appetite, and other regulatory functions in the body. Serotonin is the “happy” chemical. When you’re feeling up or happy, your serotonin levels are higher. Reduced levels of serotonin are connected to depression and anxiety. A lack of serotonin is thought to contribute to anxiety disorders and depression. The cannabinoid CBD has been shown to mimic the effect of serotonin in the brain, capable of binding to and activating serotonin receptors. This would suggest that CBD has anxiolytic and antidepressant characteristics. This was found evident in preclinical studies on mice exposed to stressful situations.
CBD and Science
Scientiﬁc evidence is continuing to accumulate that routine use of CBD can have a clear therapeutic beneﬁt, but without side effects. As stated above, animal research that subjected mice to stressful situations demonstrated that CBD had both anti-anxiety and anti-depressive characteristics. In human studies, brain scans of humans with generalized anxiety disorder found that patients who took CBD showed different brain activity in the areas that process emotions while reporting feeling less anxious.
We saw the untapped beneﬁts available through hemp and CBD products. We researched the important medicinal role cannabis played in civilizations over 8000 years ago, before we productized, packaged, and synthesized the chemistry produced naturally in the human brain. We farm, harvest and distribute all of our hemp products. We know all of our product is grown indoors, without the use of pesticides, in a completely clean and controlled environment, while using organic growing practices. Using hemp for anxiety or depression may reduce the number and severity of panic attacks, may assist with cognitive impairment due to high levels of stress, or may simply help you feel better in all aspects of your daily life.
Life on the farm
We saw the untapped benefits available through hemp and CBD products. It was an easy decision to find a way to make hemp available to a growing number of people struggling to “feel better” but not knowing where to start. We read about the important medicinal role cannabis played in civilizations over 8000 years ago, before we packaged and synthesized the chemistry produced naturally in the human brain. We farm, harvest and distribute all of our own hemp products. We grow all of our product indoors, hydroponically, without the use of pesticides, in a completely clean and controlled environment, while using organic growing practices.
With notes of tropical flowers, citrus and a bit of sour, its the uplifting yet relaxing smoke you need for today’s stressful life.
Indoor Hydroponics means a cleaner, safer harvest with a stronger yield. Because we grow indoors in a controlled environment, temperature and lighting is regulated and scheduled to improve plant production. Hydroponic systems are closed and recycle water not used by plants.
Even soil not treated with pesticides and other dangerous chemicals can have microbials and fungus that will affect the quality of the harvest. These microbes can affect your health. We have a completely clean, indoor environment free from pesticides where all of our plants are grown in porous clay stones. After each harvest these stones are destroyed and new stone is used. We do this to ensure the safest hemp product for you.
