Fatigue is one of the most common symptoms when it comes to mental and physical health. Fatigue is more than just feeling tired; it’s your body unable to catch up leaving you weak and like you can’t do even the simplest of tasks that contribute to your everyday living. Since CBD has shown to help people who have low energy, can CBD help with fatigue?
Cannabidiol in large amounts has shown to help with sleep, but what about those who need cannabis to stay awake? Research suggests that CBD is a wake-promoting agent at small doses, and when adding the potential health benefits that might provide treatment for many illnesses, it may also be able to help people with fatigue.
Fatigue or Tiredness?
Are you just drained from your busy life? Or is it actually fatigue that is keeping you down? People who are tired still have energy, experiencing weakness or irritability but having a restful night’s sleep generally solves the problem. People who have fatigue experience an abundance of cognitive problems, inability to gain energy, and have physical symptoms like being sensitive to light. If you think you may be fatigued, talk to your doctor so they can find out the reason for this symptom.
CBD For Energy
If you find that you clutch your coffee cups close because they are the only thing that can give you a fraction of energy, CBD might be a healthy alternative. Cannabidiol elevates an endocannabinoids anandamide which helps boost your mood and can give you a feeling of natural energy.
The energy that CBD has given people is most described to feel like a runner’s high. This may be in part because when you exercise anandamide is released along with other chemicals that give you a boost of energy and desensitize you to pain so you can continue your vigorous workout.
If your fatigue comes from an illness or sickness, treating that can help with your fatigue. Research has noted that people who have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have had positive results when taking CBD. However, CFS isn’t the only reason people feel fatigued. Here is a list of illness with fatigue being a common symptom that CBD may potentially help with:
If you are fatigued and want to find a way to get your energy and motivation back, talk to your doctor about using CBD hemp oil. If you are taking any medications, your doctor may need to make some alterations. They can also help you make life changes that may help with your condition.
