With Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays feeling shockingly similar in 2020, many of us are looking for healthy ways to support our mental and emotional wellbeing. Luckily, CBD can be used to support our mood and decrease stress just as easily as it can support our physical wellbeing. Existing studies even suggest that CBD could provide relief from anxiety, panic disorders, and PTSD symptoms.


But how does CBD do it?


When your body is in balance, you just feel better. It’s that simple. CBD positively impacts the body’s ability to maintain health and wellness by supporting important functions such as sleep, metabolism, mood, immune response, appetite, and more. By encouraging homeostasis and alleviating stressors from the body, mood is also positively effective.


More specifically, CBD is also a potential neuroprotectant. Translation: CBD protects brain health. By ensuring proper amounts of oxygen reach brain tissue at all times, CBD helps your brain function properly both throughout the day and as time passes since proper oxygenation lowers a person’s chances of neurogenerative disease. In addition, CBD helps us grow new neurons in the hippocampus, the region of the brain that controls learning and memory. As a result, CBD helps protect both our short-term and long-term mental health.


Scientists have also found that CBD beneficially: decreases levels of cortisol (the body’s stress hormone), fosters increased levels of serotonin (a hormone and neurotransmitter that regulates emotions), and helps prevent low dopamine levels (a feel-good neurotransmitter). By simultaneously impacting the brain’s GABA receptors (which control how the body relaxes and regulates stress), CBD continues to lower anxiety and improve mood.


Lately blursdays seem like they might be 2020’s norm. Luckily both a healthy lifestyle and CBD products can help support mental and emotional wellness. Let’s commit to feeling better in the second half of 2020!



Not only can CBD help improve your mood and overall health, it could also be an important aide for your furry family members too! CBD is believed to be safe for dogs, cats, and even horses; and because each four-legged friend listed also has ECS receptors, CBD benefits the animals in a similar way to its impact on the human body. Reducing pain and anxiety for pets is an important goal for pet owners, especially as we all spend more time together during the unprecedented year of 2020.

Many animal CBD products are already on the market, but dosages and products forms will vary from the human equivalents. Be sure to do your research before giving CBD to Felix or Fido!
