Whether from worry, non-stop activity in a busy life, or PTSD, stress and anxiety put our mind and body in overdrive. Short-term stress gives us the boost of energy we need to meet a deadline or respond to an emergency, but chronic and long-term anxiety can wear down the body's organs and systems and make us vulnerable to illness and disease.
The Jampha Calm Collection enhances CBD's anti-stress and anti-inflammatory properties with an entourage of carefully selected plant terpenes. Since the endocannabinoid system regulates the body's organs and systems, plant molecules that interact with it like CBD and terpenes help your body release chronic tension and fight free radicals on a cellular level. Below find out how the eight terpenes in our Calm formula soothe mental and emotional distress and help your body heal and prevent damage from stress.
What Stress Does to the Human Body:
Your body's emergency response system activates all your essential systems. Stress isn't isolated to your heart or lungs – everything is impacted. According to Healthline, stress can affect your body by:
Increasing heart rate and blood pressure
Raising blood sugar (as the liver releases extra glucose into the bloodstream)
Causing nausea, stomachaches, or other digestive problems
Lowering sex drive, causing erectile issues, or missed periods
Increasing back and neck aches/muscle tension
In today's world, stress is hard to avoid. The best we can do is manage it well. When you protect your cells from anxiety, you support all of your body's most essential functions.
The terpene nerolidol's sedative properties were first documented in 1972, and that's not the only way it brings stress relief.
Over time, multiple studies have shown stress increases inflammation, which is a precursor to common killers, including cancer and heart disease. Nerolidol decreases inflammation.
It's also an antioxidant, which supports heart health and helps the body fight the biochemical changes resulting from stress.
As part of the Jampha CBD Calm Collection, myrcene also fights stress by reducing inflammation throughout the body.
It helps regulate blood sugar and has been used as a treatment for diabetes.
B-caryophyllene is one of few terpenes that directly activates the CB2 endocannabinoid receptor, which means it produces multiple behavioral changes relevant to anxiety and depression. It not only reduces the symptoms of anxiety and depression but also contributes to changes in behavior.
Medical studies show it fights inflammation, adding to the stress-fighting entourage effect of our Calm tincture.
Linalool is well known for its sedative properties. Abundant in cannabis and hemp; it's also the primary terpene in lavender. If you've ever inhaled lavender plant or essential oil, you've absorbed a few molecules of soothing linalool.
Linalool is an essential component of our Calm tincture because it:
To assist your body with the side effects of chronic stress, citral improves metabolic rates and helps manage your blood sugar.
It also works as an anti-inflammatory to assist CBD and the other anti-inflammatory terpenes.
Terpineol is part of the entourage of sedative terpenes in the Calm tinctures. Studies show it can reduce withdrawal symptoms during addiction recovery.
A-bisabolol is one of the primary terpenes in chamomile and is responsible for a sedative effect that is particularly mentally calming.
Found abundantly in hemp and the peel of Valencia oranges, valencene is a calming, citrusy terpene that fights stress by reducing inflammation.
