Could CBD Help You To Concentrate?

Posted by on November 26, 2020 in Health with 0 Comments

CBD is becoming increasingly popular as a health and wellness product, and many people vouch for the positive effects it’s had on their lives. One question that often comes up is whether CBD can help you to concentrate in your daily life, so we explore all in this blog.

If you are feeling tired or lacking in energy, it can be hard to focus on the task at hand. Even when you’re feeling the best version of yourself, when you’re working long hours, it can still be tricky to concentrate and get the work done!

That is why many people look for ways to help streamline their focus and improve their concentration. This can be through methods of working, such as to-do lists or certain study techniques. Others also believe that the foods we eat and what we put into our body can have an impact. CBD is a natural product and some people think it might help to improve concentration!

A lot of people assume that CBD is like marijuana and will make you feel zoned out, rather than alert. This is often compounded by the fact that people have suggested CBD can be helpful for those who have sleep issues, which has led some to believe that it makes you sleepy. Instead, a lot of people actually find that it can help them to concentrate for longer periods, bringing a certain balance and clarity.

This is because CBD products are not allowed to contain more than trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive compound in the hemp plant), which means that it does not make you feel ‘high’ or ‘stoned’. The EU permits these trace amounts of THC (0.2% or less) in hemp plants grown for CBD oil because it is widely believed that THC interacts with the other cannabinoids in the hemp plant, including CBD, to enhance their effects.

A 2014 scientific article in Current Neuropharmacology looked into whether CBD could help with concentration, investigating the potential effects of cannabidiol as a ‘wake-promoting agent’. They found that it was worth researchers exploring ‘the potential therapeutic properties of the use of CBD to treat and manage sleepiness’.

It has also been suggested that CBD can enhance the overall effects of anandamide in the body by prolonging its availability in your system.

Anandamide is produced by your body as part of the endocannabinoid system and is often referred to as the ‘bliss molecule’. Scientists believe it interacts with our cannabinoid receptors to regulate bodily functions, including mood, learning and memory. These are all things that might affect levels of concentration!

Furthermore, many people use CBD for issues such as anxiety, pain and sleep and find that it helps. In fact, research has shown that CBD has both anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a potentially valuable option for both anxiety and pain disorders. While this does not instantly make you think of concentration, such health issues can have knock-on effects on concentration, especially when you are getting very little sleep at night.

Therefore, if CBD were to help with the symptoms of anxiety or pain, it may well help in daily focus levels too.
