Did you know that cannabis can help you be healthier? Stress has a huge impact on your health, but a little relaxation can go a long way. Here we will explore the best concentrates for stress relief.
Why stress relief is important
The autonomic nervous system controls how revved up or chilled out our bodies are. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for our fight, flight, or freeze response and the parasympathetic nervous system is in control when we rest and digest. A balance of these systems is important for health and happiness, but most of us are practically living in the fight, flight, or freeze mode.
According to Mathew Walker, Ph.D., author of Why We Sleep, staying in a tense, stressed-out mode without enough relaxation and sleep can increase our chances of obesity, heart disease, stroke, dementia, and all-cause mortality.
To live longer, work in some relaxation!
How someone relaxes is very personal. Some people take deep breaths or meditate. Others take a bath. Still, others practice yoga, crafting, or other hobbies. For some people, relaxation doesn’t come as easily. For everyone, there are times when stress relief is necessary, but time is short. That’s when supplements and cannabis can be a lifesaver.
Cannabis for stress relief
Most people experience a full-body high, encouraging deep relaxation with Indica strains. These are recommended for people dealing with less chronic stressors, like a bad day, and would like a relaxing evening.
Sativas have more of a head high. They can increase creativity and energy. These strains can help you cope with more chronic stress, like anxiety, depression, or a long, drawn-out, terrible task, like moving. Too much Sativa can sometimes make these situations worse though.
Let’s look at the best picks for stress relief.
