In today’s fast-paced world, relaxing often seems to take a backseat to life. The ability to unwind and let your mind and body rest is a necessity for maintaining your overall health. According to the Mayo Clinic, the benefits of finding a successful relaxation technique include:   
  • Lowered blood pressure 
  • Improved digestion 
  • Maintaining normal blood sugar levels 
  • Reduced activity of stress hormones 
  • Reduced muscle tension and chronic pain 
  • Improved sleep quality 
  • Better blood flow to muscle groups 
  • And more
  Currently, many individuals struggle with finding the right relaxation-aid to help them calm down and refocus after a long day. Common methods people use include things like exercise, meditation, time spent outdoors, painting, and more. Other avenues that people use to unwind include the vices of alcohol and tobacco products. However, several of these relaxation techniques do not in fact help individuals reduce their stress or high-energy levels, and may have undesired associated effects. Alcohol and tobacco use are linked to health risks like cancer and heart disease. Cannabis, CBD & Impaired Movement Today, Americans are experiencing unprecedented levels of anxiety, depression, and chronic illnesses. Studies on relaxation techniques have shown that consistent use may in some cases play an important role in helping individuals cope with their health-related issues.  Cannabis and CBD products are a growing option people are exploring to help relax. In many cases, there's no need to visit a cannabis doctor before beginning use, though it can be a good idea when starting out. While the two products work in differing ways, with cannabis-producing a high effect and CBD being a non-psychotropic substance, they both are revered by many groups as being their key to true relaxation. Adults both young and old are kicking traditional stress-relievers to the side in favor of these natural-based products.  The traditional cannabis products found at your local cannabis dispensary or medical marijuana clinic will be labeled into three strain categories: sativa, indica, and hybrid. Sativa strains are generally considered to provide a more energetic experience. These strain products are known for enhancing mental states, increasing creativity and activity, as well as helping promote the production of the mood-boosting neurotransmitter, serotonin. On the other hand, indica strains are often used to promote mental and physical relaxation. Indica products may help decrease nausea, increase appetite, and raise dopamine levels, which is the neurotransmitter responsible for satisfaction feelings. Hybrid strains are advertised as a middleman between these two strain types. Yet, cannabis and CBD application usage remain a subjective topic, as federal regulations and lack of scientific study funding delay the establishment of concrete evidence.  How To Find The Right Products For You Jointly is Your Cannabis Companion – a smartphone app that answers your important questions by aggregating experiences from a community of users just like you.
