With all of the distractions that we face everyday it can be hard to stay on task. 24/7 news feeds, smartphone notifications, emails, texts, DMs, and everything else that we get bombarded with can take our focus away from our work, studying, and other important tasks.
There are of course various prescriptions that we can take which help with focus, but at what cost? Many prescriptions that help with focus are addictive and have stimulants in them, which a lot of people prefer to avoid. Luckily there is another option; recent studies have been showing that CBD can actually have a positive affect on people’s focus and concentration.
How CBD Affects Your Focus
It’s been well established that CBD interacts with your body via the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short. The ECS is an integral part of your bodies’ immune response, memory management and so much more. While your body naturally produces endocannabinoids, by supplementing with CBD you can increase the total amount of endocannabinoids in your system, which can have a positive effect on the ECS. This CBD supplementation will then help to alleviate stress, reduce anxiety, and much more. By reducing stress and anxiety, you can increase your focus and concentration.
In addition to the effects that reduced stress and anxiety have on your focus and concentration, CBD is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, which greatly improves sleep quality. If someone is suffering from poor sleep habits, it can be hard for them to focus, as a lack of sleep is going to impair cognitive abilities and prevent someone from operating at their optimal performance.
The Science Behind It
According to a recent study, an increased dose of CBD can increase the amount of blood flowing to the hippocampus, the portion of the brain that is responsible for memory processing. This increase in blood flow from the CBD dosage then produced faster reaction time in memory tasks and helped promote an overall increase in cognitive performance and overall mental sharpness. The report also went on to suggest that CBD usage can also help promote neuron growth in the brain, further increasing CBD’s effectiveness for improving cognitive function and increasing focus and concentration.
An important factor to keep in mind when reading these studies and trying to utilize their information for your own health benefits is that the researchers behind the studies always use high quality CBD so that they can get the most accurate results. So, if you’re trying to supplement CBD to improve your own focus, make sure that the CBD oil that your using is a quality product, and that you have the lab reports to back up the quality claims.
