To meet the day means being alert and energetic. A clear mind is better for learning, productivity, and decision-making. Many of the stimulants we commonly use to feel awake, like caffeine, can have side-effects or cause dependence.
The Focus Tincture Collection combines organic CBD with plant terpenes well-known to help with mental clarity and energy. Here, we take a look at how caffeine works in our body and compare that with the research on how CBD and plant terpenes support vital energy and mental clarity.
Caffeine, an Adenosine Competitor
As we do physical or mental work during the day, our central nervous system releases adenosine. It builds up as the day winds onward, making us feel tired. We burn adenosine while we sleep, allowing us to wake up with energy for the day.
Caffeine is safe for consumption, and most people do not have side-effects. Doctors recommend consuming the equivalent of no more than four cups of coffee a day.
Side-effects of caffeine can include sleeplessness, anxiety, nausea, dehydration, or an accelerated heart rate.
CBD and Mental Alertness
CBD functions differently than coffee. While coffee's full effects come on and fade within a few hours, CBD builds up in your body over time. You may feel its effects shortly after taking it, and CBD becomes more effective with consistent use.
You may know CBD as a sedative rather than a stimulant. Because of its interaction with the endocannabinoid system that stretches from head to toe, CBD appears to have a biphasic effect. Specifically, people experience different results depending on the dosage they receive.
Get Sustained Energy with Terpene-Enhanced SETI Formulas
Sustained energy is not a product of poor sleep patterns, artificial stimulants, and poor self-care. The better our health and our cells' vitality, the easier it is for our organs and systems to feed us the energy we need to get through the day.
Some people enjoy combining coffee and CBD. Each impacts mental clarity differently. Caffeine is a nervous system stimulant that stops us from feeling tired. On the other hand, plant terpenes are natural molecules designed to help balance and regulate your body's systems to stimulate mental clarity and support vitality on a cellular level.
