CBD and Cognitive Performance

Have you ever fallen victim to one of the following:

  • Reading a page numerous times and realizing you have no idea what it said
  • Trying to concentrate on work but somehow checking your social media accounts
  • Sitting in a meeting but making a mental to do list

If you are being honest- pretty much all of us have struggled with focus at some point.

There are many reasons why we can have trouble focusing and CBD can help address these reasons in different ways.

Focus Optical Illusion

Stress and anxiety:

Ever had an issue with procrastination or trouble getting started on a project?

Procrastination and inattentiveness may be due to this stress your mind keeps wandering to. In many cases, people who think they struggle with inattentiveness or ADHD can actually be struggling with anxiety. Anxiety makes it difficult to concentrate, causes your mind to ruminate on other events and can make it difficult to sit down and stay still. CBD can help address the anxiety or stress which can then clear your mind to focus on the task at hand. CBD affects CB1 receptors on endocannabinoid receptors and studies suggest that CBD affects the release of cortisol (the hormone involved in stress production).

Sweet Life CBD Oils contain CBD and CBG to utilize the powerful calming properties of these cannabinoids to help relax you without making you drowsy.

Poor Sleep:

Lacking sleep or getting poor quality sleep can also cause challenges to focus. Lack of sleep slows down your brain's ability to process efficiently. This can also negatively affect the process which places memories into long term storage making learning difficult. It can also slow down reaction time (which can be dangerous if you must focus on driving a long distance or have a job that requires high levels of concentration).

CBD as well as CBN (the sleepy cannabinoid), can assist you with falling asleep and staying asleep. These cannabinoids can help you establish a healthy sleep pattern and improve the quality of sleep you are getting each night. Sweet Dreams CBD capsules contains both cannabinoids plus other relaxation aids like L-Theanine

Sweet Dreams contains CBD and CBN, as well as natural sleep and relaxation aids such as L-Theanine and Valerian Root to help you maintain good sleep patterns. This capsule is specially formulated to encourage a healthy and natural choice for better sleep.

The Daily Focus Curve

Feeling down or sad:

When we are feeling depressed or melancholy it’s hard to motivate ourselves to get to work. CBD can help you break this cycle of feeling down and avoidance of work.

CBD affects the endocannabinoid system which plays a part in affecting balance in your body and overall well being. It stimulates a response from dopamine receptors. From there, dopamine affects memory, focus, makes you feel good, and thereby freeing up your mind by boosting dopamine to increase attentiveness.

Low Energy:

It’s common to feel low on energy for reasons other than just lack of sleep. Being busy, overwhelmed, poor nutrition and lack of exercise can all cause us to feel slow and tired. While CBD is often thought of as only a relaxation aid, when used in tandem with caffeine it can have a powerful focusing effect. Sweet Fuel energy capsules have both caffeine in it to keep you alert and focused and while utilizing the properties of CBD to prevent jitters and anxiety that can often be caused by caffeine. It also contains Panax Ginseng and phenylethylamine HCL which promotes focus and clarity.

Whatever the reason that is making it difficult for you to focus, Sweet Life CBD has produced tailored to your specific needs. Our different formulations can address your stress and anxiety, improve your sleep quality, boost your mood and increase your energy.
