It’s no secret that CBD oil – in Austin, Texas, and throughout North America – is becoming known as a potentially viable treatment for anxiety, often used in conjunction with talk therapy and lifestyle changes. MINERAL is a CBD oil company that recently opened a brick-and-mortar store in Austin, and it has a specific formulation called BALANCE, whose primary aim is to help relieve the symptoms of anxiety.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a compound found in the Cannabis sativa plant, but it doesn’t produce a euphoric high like its counterpart, THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). Although most commercially available CBD products contain a miniscule amount of THC, it’s too little to have any sort of psychoactive effect. Both CBD and THC are cannabinoids, which are compounds that work with our bodies’ endocannabinoid systems to affect a variety of psychological and physiological processes. Some studies have indicated that CBD may boost signalling through serotonin receptors and promote neurogenesis, two important processes thought to negatively affect mood and lead to conditions like anxiety and depression when they function improperly.
For these reasons, CBD has the potential to replace or work in conjunction with anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications for people with anxiety and mood disorders. For many people, CBD oil is preferable because it doesn’t have nearly as many side effects associated with it, and the potential side effects, like drowsiness, tend to be very mild. Medications like SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), for example, often cause side effects like sleep problems, digestive issues, nausea, sexual problems, a lack of appetite, and increased suicidal thoughts. Unlike many pharmaceutical medications often prescribed for the treatment of anxiety, you can choose when and how often you take a CBD anxiety formula like BALANCE from MINERAL, whether that’s on a daily schedule or when you feel particularly anxious.
Because anxiety tends to be comorbid with other disorders or cause symptoms like sleep issues and trouble focusing, some of MINERAL’s other products might be suitable for people with anxiety as well. When taken at bedtime, SLEEP induces feelings of relaxation and helps users set aside the stresses of the day and get a good night’s sleep, something that often eludes those who struggle with anxious thoughts. And FOCUS helps improve mood while also increasing the user’s ability to focus, remember, and stay energized throughout the day. On its website and at its store in Austin, Texas, MINERAL even offers packs like the DAYTIME KIT, which includes both BALANCE and FOCUS, and the DAY + NIGHT pack, which includes BALANCE and SLEEP.
One of the things that sets MINERAL apart is its emergence as more than just a CBD store; it’s also a cannabis perfumery. Each of its products have a unique scent and flavor because each is formulated with a unique blend of cannabinoids and terpenes. BALANCE has hints of citrus, raspberry, and white jasmine, and some of the other scents that people can experience when they visit the Austin shop include lavender, sandalwood, black pepper, and bergamot. If you’re looking for a natural way to combat negative thoughts, stop by MINERAL for a CBD anxiety solution and enjoy a fragrant cultural experience while you’re there.
