It is well-known that CBD is helpful for things like relaxation, muscle tension, supporting healthy sleep and generally chilling out, but did you know that CBD can also be used to support focus, clarity, and brain health?
As we dive into recovery mode and work to shake off the funk of the last couple of years, for many of us it’s become difficult to maintain mental focus. The challenges of modern-day media exposure are leaving us overinformed and burnt out. Not to mention the constant rings and dings from emails and phones, and new top stories popping up on our screens every minute or two. The reality is that staying focused becomes more difficult on the daily—but it doesn’t have to be that way. CBD is an effective, natural tool for improving your ability to stay focused and mentally clear—even in today’s fast-paced world.
What is CBD?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring cannabinoid found in cannabis touted for its health benefits. However, CBD isn’t psychoactive like THC—it doesn’t get you high—but instead positively interacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system to help promote balance.
How Does CBD Help to Improve Focus?
CBD can improve focus by reducing anxious thoughts. CBD does that by regulating several neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that control various brain functions, including mood, appetite, cognition, and coordination. When neurotransmitters are working properly, we experience a sense of calmness, balance, motivation, and energy—you name it. But when neurotransmitters go out of whack, mental clarity plummets.
Innovative and advanced CBD formulas also include complimentary ingredients that work synergistically with CBD (and other cannabinoids) to deliver targeted effects and functional cognitive benefits.
Complementary Ingredients that work best with CBD for Cognitive Benefits
Like CBD, these compounds are naturally occurring, non-psychoactive molecules derived from plants. Scientists have discovered that certain terpenes work particularly well with CBD for cognitive benefits, making them so effective for brain health. When terpenes and cannabinoids (like CBD) work together this is called the entourage effect.
Essential Oils have been used for centuries for a variety of therapeutic purposes. From those that energize and boost your mood to those that help you focus and ease stress, aromatherapy formulas that combine CBD and essential oils are a powerful tool for healing. Fun fact: Terpenes are the building blocks of essential oils. Try BLNCD’s Focus Roll-On for a grounding blend that encourages clarity and alleviates distraction.
Adaptogens are a specific class of herbs and mushrooms that help your body reach equilibrium. They work to counteract the effects of stress in the body. Reishi, Ginseng, Holy Basil, Lion’s Mane, and Cordyceps are all great adaptogens that support brain health. A number of clinical trials have demonstrated that adaptogens exert an anti-fatigue effect that increases mental work capacity against a background of stress and fatigue, particularly in tolerance to mental exhaustion and enhanced attention. They balance hormones that help support clear thinking so you can focus better.
There are a variety of herbs that can work with CBD for cognitive benefits. Some spices and herbs that have been shown to be promising for brain health include: Turmeric, Saffron, Rosemary, Sage, Cinnamon, and Ginger.
CBD Products you should Use for Focus, Clarity, and Cognitive benefits
The results of CBD are cumulative. For lasting benefits, it’s important to take your CBD daily. One of the easiest ways to supplement is using an ingestible oil. There are both isolate (0.00% thc) and full-spectrum formulas that contain other natural ingredients, such as terpenes, to increase their absorption in your body and maximize their benefits. As every person is unique, it is important to find the formula that is right for you. View our collection of CBD Oils.
Consumables such as beverages and edibles are a fun (and delicious) way to get your daily dose. Reach for our terpene-infused, Bliss CBD Sparkling Water for a midday boost to keep you feeling focused and energized.
Inhalation is your most direct route to what’s going on in your head. The nasal mucosa is part of your autonomic nervous system, meaning that you’re pumping chemicals straight into your brain with each breath. CBD roll-ons that contain complementary ingredients such as essential oils can have instant effects on your system.
