After a long, relaxing holiday in a preferably tropical or Mediterranean locale, it can be a bit of a struggle to drag ourselves back to the grim dullness of the office cubicle or university library. The transition from beach-mode to work-mode is rarely a smooth one, and many of us may find it difficult to become our productive selves once again.
Surprisingly enough, you might find a much-needed productivity boost in the unlikeliest of places: cannabis! Now, I’m not suggesting you spark up a joint before work. CBD, like THC, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. Except it doesn’t get you high, and eases those back-to-work blues by accomplishing two things:
1) CBD Puts You to Bed
In short, sleep is everything. The foundation of having a productive day is a good night’s sleep. If we don’t get enough, we pay with poor focus, impaired judgment, and low energy the next day. Without sleep, your performance might be about as good as if you stumbled in to work after a few pints over breakfast.
Taking a CBD tincture before bed will make that deep, restful sleep easier to come by. Our bodies make their own cannabinoids, which are processed by the endocannabinoid system, a regulator of appetite, mood, and sleep. Giving that system a bit more to work with could be your ticket to dreamland.
2) CBD Relieves Stress and Anxiety
Looking down the barrel of a full, indecipherable weekly planner on a Monday is not fun. That cold feeling in the pit of your stomach means your fight or flight response has been activated. It may sound dramatic, but all negative stressors, work-related or otherwise, trigger this response to some degree.
It’s all about the hormones. When you’re stressed, your brain floods your body with hormones like cortisol to help you cope with a situation. When you consume CBD, the interactions that take place in the brain helps regulate these hormones to a normal level.
CBD effectively removes these two major obstacles that prevent you from achieving your true productive potential. With a solid block of restful sleep and a cool, collected approach to your growing to-do list, getting back to your desk is, well…not that bad at all!
