Mental health is an increasingly intense concern lately.
I lost a friend due to the stigma of them not speaking up about their mental health, and I bet you had a friend like this too. Everyone said how it was a tragedy and a shock. But I didn’t know that my friend was facing this battle… not until it was too late.
Some of us are brave. We don’t deny or hide what’s going on inside of us, so we make that appointment with the doctor.
Y’know being brave won’t save us. While it may be admirable, it may cause more problems. For example, you made the appointment. You’re feeling a little down, a little anxious, and a little sweaty. So you did the right thing. You reached out and asked for help.
You already know how it’s gonna go. You’re gonna end up waiting what seems like forever for a doctor who seems like they’re always running late. Once you get into a room you get to wait some more. Just great! That’s exactly what you wanted to do today… After reading every piece of literature in your room, and checking your Facebook… twice. You finally get to talk to your doc.
And they’re rushing you. You’ve got difficult things to say. Things you wouldn’t dream of telling your partner. And yet here you are. Being forced to rush to explain what’s going on. In 5 minutes or less.
Have you been to the doctor for your mental health before? If you have, then you already know how it’s gonna go. Your doctor will prescribe you a drug that’s supposed to tackle your mental health concerns, and schedule the follow-up. Because there’s no guarantee that this medication will work.
In fact, it might make things worse.
While you’re at the pharmacy, you feel all the symptoms that you explained to your doctor come back full-force. All because you just got done speed-reading the drug information on your new medication. You’re shocked because it might cause more symptoms that are wayyy worse than your original problem. Symptoms that your doctor didn’t care to mention.
You wanted relief from your problems. Not more problems added to your list.
There are natural treatments out there that don’t have the unwanted side-effects that pharmaceutical drugs do. And your doctor will never mention natural treatments as a treatment option.
Enter Cannabidiol (CBD).
CBD is short for cannabidiol. It comes from one of the oldest plants on earth—cannabis Sativa. CBD works for many people. This happens because it becomes best buds with your cannabinoid receptors in your body which are all a part of your Endocannabinoid System or ECS. Who knew our body was so complex?
We’ve been using CBD for ailments for a long time. And CBD sure was once a controversial topic but now it’s becoming increasingly popular this year.
Why? It’s for a damn good reason.
The pandemic is making mental health worse. The amount of people who have moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety and depression in 2020 has significantly increased. Listen, we can’t blame everything on Coronavirus. But, it’s important to note that the rates this year are much higher than before Coronavirus first emerged.
And the numbers only included the brave ones that actually made the call and trusted the process. This means the numbers are actually worse than what’s being reported because most people who have depression or anxiety don’t make the call to talk to their doctor. Because when it comes to mental health, asking for help is always the hardest part.
It’s simple. CBD can help.
Two of the most common major health disorders related to mental health are depression and anxiety. Your doctor will generally diagnose these. And let me tell you, they’re too commonly treated with the use of prescription antidepressants. Which cause many debilitating side-effects that can include:
So, why would you want to take these drugs that could cause all these symptoms above and then some? Not to mention that there’s a fair chance that an antidepressant may not work on you at all. Is it worth the trouble to solve the problem that you went to the doctor for?
Why not try something that’s natural and doesn’t have those horrible side effects like pharmaceuticals do? And that’s effective to help with your mental health issues. Here are a few benefits that people have experience with CBD products:
Sounds great, right? Now you need to figure out how to get your bottle fast so you can start reaping the benefits of CBD. But seeing how CBD isn’t regulated by the FDA, who can you trust to purchase your products from?
That’s right. The FDA doesn’t regulate CBD. Which means companies can literally put anything in those bottles. Anything. Just let your mind wander on those possibilities. So what do you do? Follow my tips here for when you’re trying to decide what companies you can trust to buy from, so you get a high-quality, legit product for your health needs:
Read the label! You should never buy anything without knowing what’s in the product to begin with. Watch out for companies that don’t list active ingredients on their bottles of CBD. They’re keeping something from you. Start thinking about why a company would want to hide this from you in the first place. It’s probably not good.
Only purchase CBD products from companies that actively display their scientific-backed data. This data should be thoroughly specific and should be processed through an outside lab not directly connected to the company. Why? So you know they’re legit! An outside lab is not going to do this company any favors by lying for them, because that would make them liable.
Don’t have the time to do the research? I wouldn’t blame you.
It can be mentally exhausting going on a company’s website and deciphering all of the medical jargon. Trying to find the information you need. Reading through all of the customer reviews. And trying to read the lab research on each product that you’re interested in. I mean, you gotta be like a scientist to read that stuff.
Who has time for that? What’s the solution?
Buy from a company that you already know you can trust. Wicked Root is straight up with you when it comes to their life-changing products. They never hide the active ingredients. And the certificates of analysis that are backed with scientific-research are displayed right on our website for the entire world to see.
Because Wicked Root believes in helping you. They want you to have all the information to make an informed decision about your health. Which is why they would never hide the essential details from you. Ever.
