To do that you gotta perform your best! This month on the PRōZE Higher Education blog we wanted to talk about the benefits that CBD can have for students and some of the problems they may be facing. So let’s talk about how people are harnessing the power of CBD for stress!

Millions of adults throughout the United States suffer from some form of stress. Afflicting 18% of the population, these disorders are treatable yet only a little over a third of people receive any treatment. Here’s the thing, if you are having any sort of anxiety and not working to treat it, you are not going to be able to perform at your best! You know here at PRōZE we simply can’t abide that! 

Students and Stress

Students, in particular, are under all sorts of pressures that generate stress. For many college students their lives revolve around two things: their grades, and their peer groups. It’s their first time living away from home, in an unfamiliar place and having to navigate all of the new challenges that come with it socially. All the while trying to ensure that their time in school is well spent, that they are learning the material and can prove it on tests.  Social and test stress may not be quite the full-blown anxiety disorders but they are stresses nonetheless!

Using CBD for Stress

Several studies have been done that link CBD as being a useful measure in treating various forms of stress. Stress and it’s symptoms have been measured after administering CBD and while the signs of stress were decreased, the traditional behavioral signs of stress (such as an increased heart rate) also improved! 

A 2011 study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that patients with SAD who were given a 400mg oral dose of CBD experienced a significant decrease in their anxiety. The researchers suggest that the CBD’s effect on activity in the limbic and paralimbic brain areas (these are the areas responsible for controlling emotions, memories, arousal, and fear detection as well). 

CBD’s properties can help students reduce their general stress, providing a calm, peaceful state of mind so that they can be active in-class discussion, prep for the exam without their nerves getting in the way, and generally perform at a higher level.
