CBD AS A NOOTROPIC
Even though it doesn’t have the psychoactive properties that produce a “high,” CBD has been found to have nootropic properties that positively affect the brain.
When CBD is ingested, it enters the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and blocks CB1 receptors, which may help curb anxiety and stress, migraines, and other ailments. There’s also some research that CBD can also improve mental clarity and concentration, because it decreases neuroinflammation in the brain. Neuroinflammation can lead to lack of concentration or “brain fog,” which is a very familiar feeling for some of us. Since many are working-from-home, it seems like it’s easier than ever to fall into a “brain fog” because we lack variety in our day. This is when nootropics can come to the rescue.
A common way to enhance CBD’s nootropic effects is to “stack” certain ingredients together.
