During these unprecedented times with COVID-19, the drastic changes and uprooting of our “normal” lives have caused all of us to experience higher levels of stress and anxiety. While you already know that stress is unpleasant in the short term, it’s clear from the evidence that it also has long term negative effects on our immune system. This is one reason why it’s so important to develop effective strategies for coping with and combating stress.
Ways to manage stress include:
Having a well-balanced life; spiritual, emotional, financial, physical, mental
Getting sufficient exercise
Sleeping at least 7 hours a night
Reducing the amount of media you consume daily
Practicing meditation or mindfulness daily for about 30 minutes
Eating healthy, balanced meal
In times of high stress, this might seem like a tall order. After all, if you’re unable to sleep, you might wake up in the morning unable to exercise and/or mentally start your day with a productive plan. The last thing you feel like is exercising, completing your spiritual devotionals, or just facing the challenges that life throws at us on a daily basis. Stress also causes us to over eat and spend money we don’t have. As you can see, stress can be a vicious cycle.
HOW CBD CAN COMBAT STRESS
If you’re looking for a way to naturally relieve tension and nerves, consider CBD. According to the article, Cannabidiol in Anxiety and Sleep: A Large Case Series, Permanente Journal 2019; 23: 18-041. “A recent surge in scientific publications has found preclinical and clinical evidence documenting value for CBD in some neuropsychiatric disorders, including epilepsy, anxiety, and schizophrenia. Evidence points toward a calming effect for CBD in the central nervous system. Interest in CBD as a treatment of a wide range of disorders has exploded, yet few clinical studies of CBD exist in the psychiatric literature.” This recent article concluded that Cannabidiol may hold benefit for anxiety-related disorders. In addition, many of ElementRx CBD's customers are using CBD specifically to treat anxiety, sleep, and stress successfully.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CBD DOSAGE
Start Low and Go Slow: The first step to finding your minimum effective dose is to establish a baseline dosage. Since many people report good results with CBD at low doses, we suggest you start with a minimal dose and slowly increase the dosage until you find results. Start with a small baseline dosage, 2X or 3x daily.
Determine your proper dosing by the severity of your symptoms and weight.
Maintain your baseline dosage for 7 days taking note of how the CBD interacts with your body.
After the initial 7 days of your baseline CBD dosage, if you are not receiving the benefit you need, then increase the daily dosage by 2 - 4mg every 3 days until you find the dosage that works best for you.
Once you have determined your minimum effective dose you may wish to decrease your dosage by one step to see if you can maintain the benefits at a slightly lower dosage.
Typically, people decide to try CBD because of a specific condition, only to find it helps other areas of their body as well. Remember, your endocannabinoid system runs throughout the entire body at a cellular and sub-cellular level. CBD is a whole-body compound. When you start taking CBD for the first time, pay attention to everything going on in your body. Do not be surprised if you find various benefits from your dosage. Prior to use, consult your physician before use as It is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any diseases.

HOW TO TAKE CBD
CBD can be applied topically or taken orally. Our CBD oil is a great option for incorporating CBD into your daily routine, promoting much-needed peace and relaxation. We recommend sublingual consumption by using our Spray or Dropper products. There is a vein under the tongue called the sublingual gland. When a substance is administered to the gland it gets absorbed directly into the bloodstream. This method of consumption is more direct and impacts the body quicker than oral consumption. With oral consumption the CBD must pass through the digestive system and much more of the bio-availability is lost. The following are the guides for our dropper and spray bottles.
