How CBD Oil Can Ease Life for College Students

January 10, 2020 16:00:06

College is an informative time, and more than that, a time when most people are exposed to life outside of home. However, it brings with it a lot of stress and anxiety. You have your entire life ahead of you, and you need to make major life choices. On top of that, there’s the heavy workload and for someone who was in high school just a year or two ago, it could be a little too much.

Whether they’ve actually been diagnosed with anxiety or they just have situational anxiety, a lot of students are usually carrying a lot on their shoulders, and if it isn’t addressed, it could lead to burnout. There’s also social anxiety from being in a completely new place filled with strangers, and this could prevent you from making friends and truly settling into school life.

Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a hemp extract, and it’s said to be a potent and versatile medicine. People have been using it to manage chronic pain, high blood pressure and a variety of other illnesses. College students too can jump onto the CBD bandwagon.  How so?

It works great against anxiety.  A large percentage of Americans who use CBD do so for anxiety, and for good reason. A study done in 2010 found that CBD could reduce symptoms of social anxiety in people with social anxiety disorder (SAD). Brain scans from participants showed that a consistent CBD dose changed blood flow to the regions of the brain linked to feelings of anxiety. The chemical not only made them feel better, but it effectively changed the way the brain responded to anxiety.

It reduces stress. Are you feeling stressed out because a major exam is coming up? Such times are common in college, and in some cases, might even prevent you from getting your work done effectively. Cannabis as a whole has been found to have stress-relieving properties, and CBD is even more effective. A dose of CBD will mellow you out and enable you to focus more on what’s important.

It’s a powerful pain reliever. Admittedly, no college students are dealing with arthritis. Maybe a few, but not the majority. Still, college students have to deal with headaches, migraines, and if you play a sport, muscle pain and soreness. While pain medications do work, they can be addictive. CBD, on the other hand, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties that make it a potent pain reliever, with none of the side effects.

Most of all, it increases focus. Anxiety, stress, headaches, and migraines make it almost impossible to focus. And while CBD’s focus enhancing properties haven’t been extensively researched, eliminating these harmful distractions goes a long way in improving focus.

It would be interesting to hear what specific CBD products companies like Hemptown USA and The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX: TGOD) OTCQX: TGODF) recommend for college students facing specific health challenges.
