How CBD Improves Your Work Performance

You've likely heard about CBD. With more states moving to legalize marijuana, we're also becoming more aware of CBD and its benefits.But what is CBD, and can it take your work performance to new heights?

Oils and tinctures are often recommendedCDN

As Natural Stacks explains, "CBD (cannabidiol) is a bioactive component of the Cannabis plant (marijuana) that is becoming well-known for its potential brain health benefits, none of which involve getting high or compromising your short term memory." So, no, you won't be "stoned" at company meetings or on conference calls.

Cannabidiolcan be taken into the body in multiple different ways, including by inhalation of cannabis smoke or vapor, as an aerosol spray into the cheek, and by mouth. It may be supplied as an oil containing only CBD as the active ingredient (no added THC or terpenes), a full-plant CBD-dominant hemp extract oil, capsules, dried cannabis, or as a prescription liquid solution."

When it comes to getting the most out of your CBD, the experts at CanaGel hemp oil gel melts (the first of its kind) recommend full spectrum CBD rather than CBD isolate. "The CBD isolate is just pure CBD and nothing else. CBD on its own still may have medical value as it is the most medicinal part of the plant, but according to research done by Israeli Organic Chemist, Raphael Mechoulam it was found that all the naturally occurring cannabinoids found in cannabis work better when they are together (rather) than isolated. This is what's known as the 'entourage effect,' where all the cannabinoids work together and become more effective. So, full spectrum hemp CBD is more effective because of all the 100+ cannabinoids like CBD, CBC, CBG, CBDA, <.3% THC than just CBD alone. Unlike CBD isolate, full spectrum CBD is filled with nutrients and contains terpenes, flavonoids, essential vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids (Omega 3 & Omega 6), protein, chlorophyll, amino acids and fiber."

Customers who use CanaGel have also seen improvement in their mental health, which can lead to an increase in performance and productivity at work. A reduction in anxiety, insomnia (PopSugar Fitness reports CBD may produce alertness in small doses during the day), depression, and other mental health issues have been reported with use of 5-20 mg. daily. Natural Stacks adds to the benefits a relief in stress levels thanks to "CBD's efficacy as an anxiolytic compound." Additionally, "It's thought that CBD influences neuron activity in the hippocampus (the region of the brain involved in memory consolidation and formation) by increasing calcium ion concentrations in the mitochondria."

Need more proof CBD can up your performance? As per Medical Jane, "Cannabinoids help your brain grow and slow brain aging. Through a process called neurogenesis, new brain cells are constantly being created. Another study published in The International Journal of Neuropharmacology also points to cannabidiol (CBD) as a key contributor of neurogenesis in the brain. Specifically, this birth of new neurons occurred in the Hippocampus, an area typically associated with conscious memory and navigation by making these developing cells stronger."

You can take your CBD before work, but what if you choose to take a dose at the office? A CanaGel representative noted how this can be tricky, since "many people are still very misinformed (about CBD)." Vaping (consider Select CBD) or using tinctures, creams, or oils can be obvious and distracting - not to say they aren't the CBD "vessel" of choice for many - that's why CanaGel recommends their product which is discreet, not to mention highly effective. A gel melt is placed inside the cheek for up to 10 minutes and the CBD is absorbed into the bloodstream. "Independent lab results show that within 7 minutes of contact, virtually 100% was absorbed." No muss, no fuss.

Clearly, there are many mental benefits, but what about side effects? As per Healthline, "Though CBD is generally well tolerated and considered safe, it may cause adverse reactions in some people.

Side effects noted in studies include:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Psychosis
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Drowsiness
  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Diarrhea
  • Changes in appetite"

As with anything you put in your body, it's important to make sure you are doing It safely. Medical News Today reminds us, "After discussing dosage and risks with a doctor it is important to compare different brands. There are a range of different CBD (products) available to purchase online, with different benefits and applications."

Once you're cleared and ready to use CBD to improve your performance on the job, you'll learn if the mental benefits are affecting you. Hey, you may owe your next promotion to CBD!
