CBD & Your Ability to Focus
When the masses think of cannabis, the unfamiliar of the population tend to automatically revert solely to the psychoactive element (THC) embedded within the plant, completely disregarding the other beneficial compounds that helped expedite its growth in popularity. In regards to the therapeutic element of cannabis, the most noteworthy compound is Cannabidiol (or CBD), which can help alleviate ailments such as anxiety and assist in enhancing one’s ability to concentrate.
Anxiety is probably one of the biggest components that contribute to the deterioration of concentration, and according to the Anxiety And Depression Association Of America, 3.1% of adults ages 18 and older in America are suffering from GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) and only 43.2% of those receive treatment. Fortunately, what was lost due to mental illness can be rehabilitated with proper treatment.
Let’s Talk About Anxiety in Relation to Concentration
Anxiety is a biological process designed to keep us safe from danger and is a major reason why we’re still here today. Anxiety is not the problem; the issue here is uncontrollable anxiety that grips ahold and eventually begins to negatively affect your life. Some symptoms of anxiety include excessive nervousness, worrying, uneasiness, and fear. When we are experiencing anxiety, stress responses in our brain and body are triggered, constricting blood flow, which impairs our ability to reason and focus. Not only is blood diverted from the brain during this process, but cortisol (a hormone known to cause memory loss) is released.
Cortisol is a steroid hormone made in the adrenal gland and released into the blood. Almost every cell in our body possesses a receptor for cortisol so the effects the hormone can range from regulating stress to influencing memory formation. The side effects of cortisol are triggered when high levels are present in the body. Although high cortisol levels can help boost the formation of memories, it also hinders our ability to recall them. It has been argued that the introduction of CBD in our ECS (Endocannabinoid system) can affect our body and mind’s hormone levels in a way that creates balance.
Our Endocannabinoid system is responsible for promoting our overall wellbeing and regulating vital aspects of our biology. Its goal is to work towards achieving and maintaining homeostasis by helping our cells perform at an optimal level. Our ECS consists of three components, and they include:
- Cannabinoid Receptors: Found the exterior of cells
- Endocannabinoids: Molecules that activate cannabinoid receptors
- Metabolic Enzymes: Enzymes that break down endocannabinoids post-use
In regards to enhancing our ability to focus, when endocannabinoids like CBD are introduced into the body, it interferes with the secretion of cortisol, reducing the levels found in our blood, relieving stress, and controlling the perception of stress which helps us examine situations in a clear and more reasonable manner.
