Mental & physical stress leads to too much cortisol. Too much cortisol shoves you out of balance & leads to a bunch of crappy symptoms that most of us have become all too familiar with.
Adaptogens adapt to your individual needs in order to restore balance and maintain homeostasis.
CBD & Ashwagandha are adaptogenic & provide an all-natural, non-toxic & effective way to:
- Reduce cortisol
- Regulate serotonin & GABA levels (neurotransmitters that affect mood, sleep, anxiety)
- Create systemic balance
- Defend against the negative effects of chronic stress
Stress: the unwelcome guest squatting in our lives
Whether it is due to turning on the news, sitting in traffic, financial security, scrolling through the insanity on your Facebook feed, working out without leaving time for proper recovery, or trying to get a handle on the ever-illusive work/life balance, your body only knows one thing: it is stressed.
Chronic stress = chronically elevated cortisol levels = fatigue, poor sleep, weakened immune function, low sex drive, weight gain and general crappiness.
So, if stress isn’t something we can necessarily avoid, what do you do to slow the cascading flow of cortisol that is carrying you gently into the darkness?
GET YOURSELF SOME ADAPTOGENS
Adaptogens protect the body from the effects of chronic stress and provide heavy duty support for your body’s natural resistance to “adverse influences” (AKA anything that taxes the body either mentally or physically).
As the name suggests, adaptogens ADAPT to your body’s individual needs, with their end goal always being homeostasis – the body’s ideal state of balance.
They support healthy adrenals: glands that regulate your hormonal response to stress and help you cope with anxiety and fatigue.
When you’re always stressed and not taking the time to reset and practice self-care, your adrenals get real sick of your bullshit and start to give up.
Supplementing with adaptogens lowers cortisol levels and allows your exhausted adrenal glands to get some much-needed R&R, restoring their proper function.

CBD is one of the most abundant cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, but it has long been relegated to standing in the shadow of THC – the cannabinoid that creates the high associated with cannabis.
CBD is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves and more and more people are experiencing the amazing benefits of this comprehensive adaptogen.
The power of CBD starts in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) – the vast communication network throughout our bodies that regulates vital physiological functions such as sleep, mood, appetite, blood sugar, immune function and pain perception.
We have Endocannabinoid receptors throughout our nervous system, immune system, and various organs (including the skin, which is why topicals are so effective!).
When our ECS is not functioning properly (cannabinoid deficiencies or imbalances) it can result in issues such as migraines, chronic pain, autoimmune issues or inflammatory disease. How do you bring it back into balance? Supplement with CBD!
What you can expect from adding CBD into your routine:
- Less inflammation
- Less anxiety
- Less Pain
- Better mood
- Better immune function
- Better sleep
- CBD is also an anti-epileptic, anti-bacterial and anti-spasmodic!
Ashwagandha gained its street cred for its ability to reduce stress & anxiety in the face of fatigue, increase physical performance, and bring the body into balance. It has long been a staple in Ayurvedic & Chinese medicines because of its powerful yet all-natural restorative benefits:
- Lower cortisol levels (Confirmed by human studies that revealed a 26% decrease in cortisol after taking Ashwagandha)
- Stronger defenses against incoming stressors.
- Positive effects on memory and neuron regeneration, which makes it a promising option to ward off dementia.
- Increased focus and mental clarity, even during times of stress & fatigue
- Improved physical endurance & performance (Study showed ncreased VO2 Max (aerobic capacity / how efficiently your body can take in & use Oxygen during intense exercise) with Ashwagandha supplementation, even in elite athletes!)
