Oxidative stress occurs when free radicals produced by the body overwhelms the natural healing process.
Oxidation tends to increase when we’re emotionally and/or physically stressed.
If you’re eating a healthy diet, getting enough antioxidants, and exercising regularly, you’ll typically feel fine.
If you don’t, however, you’re bound to feel the signs of oxidative stress.
Some of the symptoms associated with oxidative stress include:
• Brain Fog/Difficulty Concentrating
• Wrinkles/Grey Hair
• Sensitivity to noise
• Muscle/Joint Pain
Oxidative stress can lead to several health conditions such as, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, insomnia, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and more.
Taking CBD may be able to help.
There are countless antioxidants found in both hemp and cannabis, with CBD containing these antioxidant properties.
A 1998 study found that both CBD and THC contain antioxidants and that CBD is a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of oxidative neurological disorders.
Oxidative stress has shown to play a large role in the development of several neurological diseases.
CBD then, can help reduce oxidative stress, which can help reduce stress felt at the workplace.
#2. Reduce Anxiety
Aside from chronic pain, one of the principal reasons people take CBD is to reduce anxiety.
CBD has been shown to be effective in the treatment of several anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Seeing that stress and anxiety go hand-in-hand, reducing your anxiety with CBD can have a significant impact on the stress you feel at work.
