Calling All-natural Support: Top 5 Ways CBD Relieved My Work Stress
Learn/Calling All-natural Support: Top 5 Ways CBD Relieved My Work Stress
Even before COVID arrived to disrupt our professional lives, work-related stress was a major factor in many people’s lives. According to the American Institute of Stress, some 40% of workers report their job is “very or extremely stressful.” It’s a serious and growing problem, and one that doesn’t receive the attention it should.
Fortunately, there’s a potential solution in the form of a gentle, all-natural plant product: CBD. Found in both the cannabis and hemp plants, it’s a compound that exerts some truly astonishing effects on our bodies and our minds. Whether taken in the form of CBD oil, as an ingestible, or used as a topical, it’s currently being researched for a wealth of potential benefits.

Does CBD work for stress? We believe it does, and new research is mounting to support this claim. In today’s article, we’ll share ways we, at Papa & Barkley, leverage the power of CBD for stress in our lives.
CBD for Stress: Sleep Support
Good sleep quality is one of the central pillars of our lives, both on and off the job. Unfortunately, all too many of us suffer from insomnia, a family of sleep disorders that can sap our strength and make a normal workday feel like a grind. According to a recent study, CBD can offer support by improving our sleep and by reducing stress while we’re awake.
CBD for Stress: Taming Discomfort
Because work-related stress can present as chronic pain or inflammation, it’s important to keep on top of this nagging and often distracting symptom. Because of CBD’s demonstrated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, many of us trust it to help get a handle on chronic aches and strains.
CBD for Stress: Better Mood, Better You
Unlike its cousin THC—the cannabinoid responsible for the cannabis plant’s characteristic “high”—CBD imparts at most a very gentle psychoactivity, sometimes described as a mild cerebral “buzz.” This helps make it a powerful, all-natural, allday and everyday mood supporter—as evidenced by several clinical studies. Because it’s gentle and non-distracting, CBD can help support a positive mood and outlook without distracting psychoactivity.
CBD for Stress: Winding Down
After the workday is done, CBD can help revitalize and rejuvenate tired joints and muscles. Whether used as a powerful topical or as a fragrant addition to a bath, using CBD oil is an all-natural way to restore balance, recover from the workday, and ease your way into restful and restorative sleep.
CBD Dosage for Stress: Best Practices
Because everyone’s a little bit different, there’s no “standard dosage” of CBD. While it’s believed to be impossible to “overdose” on CBD, we generally advise our customers to consult the product packaging for guidelines, taking into account their weight and physical condition. Keep in mind that, as several studies have demonstrated, many of us experience greater symptomatic relief by using the minimum amount of cannabis needed to provide the relief we’re seeking.
As we always say: Start low and go slow with dosing. Because each of us is different, the optimal dosage and form of cannabis varies depending on each person’s needs, goals, and individual physiologies.
