Some researchers like to refer to CBD as the “boy scout molecule” but we like to refer to it as the “girl scout molecule.” Why? Because it always does the right thing for the body in any given situation—it’s a “smart” molecule, a regulator, a modulator, and an adaptogen.
But its ability to perform as an adaptogen is particularly important given the amount of tension experienced in today’s lifestyle.
But Wait, What’s an Adaptogen?
Adaptogens are non-toxic plants that protect the body from the impact of modern life - physical, chemical, and biological. They work by supporting offering widespread support and help bring the body back to a state of equilibrium.
Adaptogens have been used for centuries in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine but now have immense modern-day applications. But their real superpowers lie in the fact that they work specifically with your needs by adapting their function to wherever your body is out of balance.
How Is CBD an Adaptogen?
So how did CBD make the cut as an adaptogen? To tick the “adaptogen” box, herbs must be:
- Non-toxic to the body’s physiological functions.
- Offer comprehensive support.
- Bring the body back to balance.
CBD ticks all of these boxes and, depending on the location of tension in the brain or body, will act to promote balance.
Make CBD Your Body’s “Girl Scout”
So if you’re done with being tense, overwhelmed, or in temporary, occasional discomfort, taking advantage of CBD and its adaptogen properties is simple.
