What is stress and what causes it?

Stress is a common feeling that we experience when we feel under pressure or when unable to cope with a given situation. A small amount of stress is natural for the human body and healthy in a way, as it drives us to achieve better results and life goals. However, stress in larger amounts can have a negative effect on our mood, relationships with others, physical and mental well-being.

The most common causes of stress:

  • negative thoughts and feelings about oneself,
  • the transformation of the human body during puberty,
  • fear of failure (in exams, at work, in a relationship),
  • problems with socialization in society,
  • major life changes (parents' divorce, moving, job change),
  • difficult life situation (chronic illness, financial problems, death in the family),
  • dangerous and unpleasant environment.[1]

What are the types of stress?

In terms of time, we can divide stress into acute and chronic.

Acute stress - Is considered a neurotic disorder that may not be preceded by any previous psychological disorder. Acute stress is usually caused by an extraordinary experience or an unpleasant traumatic event (death in the family, job loss, car accident). Acute stress subsides within hours to days.

The most common symptoms of acute stress include:

  • rapid heartbeat,
  • difficulty breathing,
  • chest pain,
  • headache and stomach ache,
  • stress diarrhea,
  • sweating.

Chronic stress - also known as long-term stress. Long-term chronic stress can lead to depression. The cause of stress is mainly the helplessness of the situation and the growing burden. It can be, for example, a non-functioning marriage, an increasing amount of work, an inability to manage the financial situation. Symptoms of chronic stress include:

  • insomnia and general sleepiness,
  • change in behavior in society (withdrawal),
  • low energy,
  • lack of concentration and distraction,
  • change in appetite,
  • change in emotional responses.

The effects of stress on the human organism can be completely individual.

We further divide stress into positive and negative.

Positive stress - is also referred to as Eustress. It is a natural phenomenon that is usually associated with euphoria and excitement in life situations.

Negative stress

  • Hypostress - also known as mini stress. This is a mild and manageable condition.

Hyperstress – excessive stress that is caused by an increasing amount of stress

Distress - is the opposite of positive stress. It has a negative effect on the human organism. It comes from a bad life experience.

How to get rid of stress and anxiety?

You'd rather spend time with your family, but it's still on your mind and you're looking for a way to get rid of stress and nervousness. Here are some tips on how to better manage stress and what helps in stressful situations.

  1. Get more physical activity - many studies show that physical activity reduces stress levels and improves mood. In contrast, seated activities can lead to increased stress, bad mood and sleep disorders. Getting enough exercise can be one way to relieve stress.

How to get rid of nervousness

We encounter nervousness on a daily basis. It is a natural feature of the human body to react to different situations. Each of us has surely been in a situation where we had to speak in front of a large group of people. All of a sudden, your throat tightens, your knees buckle, and you start to get nervous.

Suddenly you are looking for a way to get rid of inner tension. It is definitely not something that should cause you stress. It happens absolutely normally to each of us. Let's talk about some tips that could help you get rid of nervousness and not be nervous in a given situation:

  • Don't take it as an obstacle, but as an invitation to move somewhere.
  • Allow yourself plenty of time to prepare.
  • Play your favorite relaxing music before an unpleasant situation.
  • Talk to someone close about your feelings.
  • Relax your body and indulge in relaxation (massage, meditation, yoga, aroma therapy). [3]

How does CBD work against stress?

CBD, or cannabidiol, is a purely natural substance found in hemp. CBD has a huge advantage over the better-known THC – it is not psychoactive. CBD, on the other hand, calms the body and mind and is 100% legal in the Czech Republic.

It is used, for example, by vaporization in the form of ointments, tinctures and oils. However, you will not be in a euphoric state. In addition to being calming, CBD reduces pain and works against depression, anxiety and social phobia.

CBD substances act on different receptors in the body. CBD is believed to respond to CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are mostly found in the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. It is not completely known how CBD affects the action on individual receptors. However, it has the property of altering serotonin signals, which is an important component for mental health and mood swings.

A low level of serotonin in the body can cause depression and anxiety. CBD substances primarily have a calming effect on the body, which we can consider one of the ways to reduce stress. [4]

Effects of CBD on the human body:

  • balances anxiety and depression,
  • relieves pain
  • suppresses inflammation,
  • improves sleep quality,
  • supports immunity,
  • helps manage stress and nervousness,
  • increases appetite.

CBD for better sleep

Insufficient sleep can greatly affect our mental state. With a lack of sleep, we seem irritable, and a small detail can easily throw us off.

You are about to fall asleep when your head starts working on it at 100% and thinking about everything that needs to be arranged tomorrow. You start to stress about having to get up in the morning and start organizing everything. Many people choose sleeping pills as an option. However, they cause a lot of side effects. CBD products can be an alternative for you.

CBD is not psychoactive, but relaxes the muscles, body and mind, and above all promotes quality sleep. The production of CBD oils takes place in such a way that hemp extract is dissolved in cold-pressed hemp oil in a certain ratio. CBD binds to endocannabinoid receptors in the human body, which affect the quality of our sleep.

Which CBD products to choose against stress and anxiety?

Currently, CBD is found in various forms. Some may find it more convenient to drip CBD drops into their carefully prepared oatmeal in the morning, while others will rather use CBD vaporization pens, which are absorbed into the blood more quickly than drops, and the effect is thus faster. Easy mobility is also an advantage, so you can take vaporizer pens wherever you go.

If you can't fall asleep in the evening and you have a lot of thoughts running through your head before going to sleep, we recommend reaching for CBD drops from our offer labeled chill, which have the ideal ratio of CBD and CBG to improve the quality of sleep.

If you would like to try something new, then you can try CBD flowers or one of the CBD extracts. For more experienced consumers, we also recommend HHC products. What is HHC?
