Remote working & CBD

Remote working & CBD

Stress and anxiety are a problem for many employees – whether it's a typical office job or 'smart working' from home. CBD preparations can help these people thanks to their positive impact on performance and personal life.

Persistent anxiety and stress often have negative repercussions at work. Those affected are, for example, forced to give up on promotion, which often involves trips or public appearances. They invent excuses to avoid office parties or dinners with colleagues. Not to mention that stress also affects performance and creates great difficulty in meeting deadlines. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), for three quarters of those affected, stress or anxiety at work have negative repercussions on their daily life and therefore on their personal life.

It's not only in traditional professional environments like offices or shops that stress can be an issue. Even employees who work remotely from home or other locations (like cafes) often experience stress. Because while the ubiquitous 'smart working' or 'remote working' allows people to withdraw, when necessary, and creates distance – especially from colleagues or difficult situations – this remoteness also makes communication more difficult, which can lead to employees feeling rapidly overlooked, if not downright misunderstood.

There's no quick fix for work-related anxiety or stress. Depending on the professional situation and the person, these disorders can be alleviated through coaching, sports or mindfulness exercises. More and more people are turning to preparations containing one of the active ingredients in the cannabis plant: cannabidiol (CBD). In fact, CBD has been shown to have soothing and relaxing properties and thus increase physical and mental well-being.

If you have trouble falling asleep, the day before an important presentation for example, a few drops of CBD oil will generally help you drop off. And getting enough sleep can help you deal with pressure better and increase your resilience to stress. Likewise, CBD preparations can also be useful for excess nerves – before a meeting or a crucial presentation, for example. This active ingredient also helps employees relax after a hard day at work. And since relaxation is an essential condition for mental rest, CBD can even increase performance in the long term. Moreover, cannabidiol doesn't only act on the mind: CBD-based skincare products also help the skin relax. And that's what makes a truly good impression at the office or on the screen.
