Robin’s Write Ups

Hello True Natural Oils followers and Welcome to the first week in May 2020!  The supposed time of year when we’re enjoying the warmer air, meeting friends for weekend BBQ’s and perhaps looking for our favorite places to soak up the renewed sunshine.

This year has brought us challenges toward all of the pleasures listed above.  We have been squelched by authorities, based on science and data, regarding meeting with friends and soaking up the sunshine. Many of us are mandated to work at home.  Some of us have lost our jobs or have been furloughed.  These changes in our lives pattern most probably could  produce stress.  Please allow me to talk today about the effects of CBD oil and how it relieves stress.  Let’s begin by looking at this excerpt from the article:

“Should CBD become a part of your wellness routine in these troubling times?”

Drayer, Lisa. CNN Wire Service; Atlanta [Atlanta]20 Apr 2020.

“Anxiety relief in the time of Covid-19″

“Indeed, a more recent survey looking at consumer attitudes and behavior during Covid-19’s enforced “social distancing” revealed that people have been turning to cannabis and CBD as a way to cope with the Covid-19 pandemic. Specifically, among the general population, 10% are using cannabis, and 5% are using CBD.

Just last week, researchers warned of a rise of anxiety and “coping responses” during the pandemic, and called for better monitoring of mental health as part of the global response to the pandemic.

People living with coronavirus-related anxiety due to fear of one’s health or the health of loved ones, isolation, entrapment from quarantining, a disrupted routine, or simply uncertainty of the future might turn to CBD as a useful tool to get them through this difficult time. Of course, the trauma of health care workers on the front lines is another aspect of the pandemic calling for anxiety and pain relief, where CBD may be a welcome lifestyle intervention.

“Health-care workers [who] are working long shifts are finding CBD helpful for restorative sleep and on their days off using it for pain and inflammation — from being on their feet all day, [and having] low back pain and neck pain,” Chin said in an email.

“CBD can also help with panic attacks and insomnia as the prevalence of depression and PTSD mounts in response to this pandemic,” Chin added.

Studies have also revealed that CBD may be a compound of choice for those struggling with drug addiction, and it may even have the potential to help opioid addicts avoid a relapse through reducing craving and anxiety, according to study author Dr. Yasmin Hurd, a neuroscientist at the Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai (AIMS) in New York.”

**I do feel it necessary to express my opposition in using cannabis sativa or indica for stress relief.   A much discussed topic of how CBD does NOT contain any psychoactive THC components is worth rementioning for purposes here.   

So, my friends, with this evidence available for us all to see, please feel confident in your choice to use True Natural Oils CBD for a multitude of reasons.  Along with so many bits of information in the news and media we are given each day to enforce negativity, please embrace using our wonderful products to support your wellness, well-being  and your self-health.  Please allow us to help you walk along a better path to health!
