Our world is speeding up, with continuous streams of information. Stress builds easily in our busier and increasingly urban lifestyles. An ‘always-on’ culture makes it harder than ever to find presence in the everyday. No surprise that stress is one of the major causes of disease and illness.
CBD (cannabidiol) has a powerful effect on both the behavioural and physiological symptoms of stress. Like our own naturally occurring cannabinoids, CBD reacts with a complex network of receptors through the body to promote homeostasis – or balance. It also helps regulate physiological functions such as encouraging healthy sleeping patterns; positively influencing mood; and reducing stress and anxiety. Regulating imbalances like low levels of serotonin, can be important for dealing with stress and anxiety.
In our own consumer trials, 83% of people reported that daily use of CBD helped them control their worrying.
OTO’s range of CBD oils, skincare and functional drinks are blended with a range of ayurvedic essential oils with further stress & anxiety relieving properties such as bergamot, chamomile, lavender & lavandin.
