Can CBD Help You Focus?

If you struggle with distractions, you're not alone. Most of us try to balance multiple activities and responsibilities at once. With so many sources of distraction, being focused and indistractable is becoming harder. CBD may be able to help.

A study in 2014 showed that when two people are talking, the mere presence of a smartphone resting on a table is enough to change the character of the conversation. 

How Does CBD Work for Focus and Concentration?

Our body produces cortisol when we are feeling stressed out. An increase in our level of cortisol, makes it difficult to concentrate and staying focused. CBD may help increase focus and mental clarity by interacting with the excretion of excess cortisol. This allows our brain to release more dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine and serotonin are neurotransmitters that affect focus, memory and mental clarity as well as overall happiness. These feel good hormones also increase our ability to concentrate on important tasks that we encounter on a daily basis.

Using CBD for Work and Studying

Taking CBD oil may help us focus in several ways.

Reducing anxious thoughtsOne of the biggest problems some people have with staying focused, is an overactive brain that continuously second-guesses itself. Stress and anxiety can manifest itself as a sense of an impending danger that keeps the mind preoccupied, constantly looking for a problem and a solution. Taking CBD can help these thoughts and help improve focus for the task at hand.

Increasing alertness: To stay alert and focused, many people turn to caffeine. But as caffeine level rises, so does jitterness. CBD can help keep you alert and focused without the jitters and making it a great fit for an all nighter.

Can reduce spasms: If you can't stand still, or have nervous impulses that can keep you from being focused. CBD may help your body reduce these jolts and keep your body still, this way your mind is better able to focus. 

How To Take CBD

CBD exists in several forms;

Tinctures: The best method of taking a tincture is sublingually. Place the oil under your tongue and hold for 15-20 seconds where it will be absorbed through the mouth mucous membranes, capillaries, and blood vessels. Sublingually is simply a more efficient and higher absorption way to take CBD Drops. However, it may not be for everyone so blending it with food or a beverage can also be done.

Edibles: Gummies and edibles is another great option for taking and dosing CBD. They already come in a pre measured dose and are more discreet than pulling out a bottle of CBD tincture and dropping it in your mouth. However, they are slightly less efficient because when eaten, it has to pass through the stomach and be digested. 

Vaping: Although vaping is a socially acceptable way of taking CBD, it is not ideal due to the negative side effects associate with vaping. 

Topicals: CBD topicals are very popular and can provide some relief in the form of anti-inflammation in the area of need. A common technique more maximum results, is taking a CBD tincture followed by applying a CBD topical in the targeted area.
