(CBD & Stress) They say pressure makes diamonds but…

It’s a fact of life my friends.

Pressure. Stress. Anxiety.

I know that there’s a motivational phrase that talks about how pressure makes diamonds but holy hell…

The stress of pressure causes anxiety. ; )

I know some folks believe they have a bulletproof mindset or a stress-less life and while I might agree that is true MOST of the time the fact is that things emerge that are unexpected and sometimes beyond our control that cause us a little stress.

Or anxiety.

Or both.

So one of the things that makes us different at Wellness Project RX isn’t simply that we offer only premium, curated CBD products but also that we understand the plant and it’s potential impact on your well being.

I mean we are nurses too. ; )

In other words…education and understanding more about CBD and it’s wonderfully awesome positive impact on you…me…us.

So…

Why Take CBD For Stress?

In case you haven’t heard, CBD is a revolutionary adaptogenic plant extract that balances and supports multiple systems in the body, helping with everything from sleep and appetite to pain and inflammation.

CBD’s beneficial effects on serotonin, cortisol (the stress hormone) and inflammation (the root of nearly every modern disease) have made it a popular daily supplement, I take it every day, as well as an alternative to over-the-counter and prescription pharmaceuticals.

Unfortunately, the hype around this new therapeutic and all natural supplement has crowded the market with low-quality CBD from Chinese and Eastern European sources with questionable purity standards. (Hemp can bioaccumulate heavy metals if it’s not grown with pure soil and water…but that’s another topic).

And that’s why we exist.

To cut through the clutter and mis/dis information around CBD.

A note to my future cannabis self…

The Olympics recently ended as I type this in early March of 2018.

I only say that for the sake of posterity because some of y’all may be seeing this for the first time in late 2019 or July of 2020.

The days when all this silliness is over.

You see…the truth of TODAY is that anything “cannabis” (shhhhhh…don’t say that too loud)…is kinda stigma-taboo-stoner’ish-don’t tell my mom I do this kinda thing.

I know.

It’s weird.

But it’s also the TIME I live in here in early March of 2018.

It’s a wild time lemme tell ya…

Some states say it’s ok to not only smoke weed but you can even grow your very own little and not-so-secret garden. If you know what I mean…

And others…well…others…let’s just say that “Mary Juana” is pretty much the equivalent of the old school ‘Scarlett Letter’…only it’s not scarlett it’s green.

Hell and let’s not glide by the hoopla that the US Attorney General just set in motion last month. Don’t EEEVVVENNNN get me started.

So yeah.

It’s a funny time.

And you know what’s even funnier. Not funny ha-ha but more funny-peculiar.

Ready?

That this plant is so misunderstood by some of the most…a-hem (clears throat sound)…intelligent folks I know.

Seriously.

Like just last week up in Austin I had a convo with this wicked smart lady friend and she was just so adamant that anything having to do with the word “cannabis” is taboo. In fact she even went on to say that I was essentially a drug dealer and I must say that that statement ruffled my feathers a bit.

Everyone knows I’m an RN turned entrepreneur and what we do here at Wellness Project RX is offer to humanity a true alternative to achieve a state of “super wellness”. And yeah…we are fans of *CBD as a legit alternative.

She also asked me to “convince” her that cannabis is anything BUT a Cheech and Chong, old school stigma.

And that’s when the voice of reason entered the convo b/c I shared that my job isn’t to convince folks. I went on that it’s our individual responsibility as informed, intelligent Americans to inform and empower ourselves with knowledge IF we feel the need to do so.

And especially even more so when the only opinion we have around a topic is decades old and based on comedic movies or 1970’s Woodstock’ish memories.

So why did I mention the Olympics at the onset of this scribe?

Because this article written goes on to cite references as related to THC and CBD and Olympic athletes.

So to my future self…on the day maybe 2…3…or 5 years from now when we look back at ignorance…dis-empowered “thinkers”…old school stigmas and basic misunderstanding remember you heard it here first.

Cannabis. Is. Here. To. Stay.

Whether one likes it or not.

Be empowered.

And if you want a little extra “power” be sure to go to our store and use the code “RICKY” for 10% off AND free shipping. My anxiety laden days are a thing of the past since I started a daily *CBD regimen (the gelcaps ROCK!!!)

Go ahead…be empowered.
