    Everybody loses it sometime. Anger is part of life. But when it starts to take over, or even becomes a way of life, it can threaten your health, your relationships, your employment — even land you in jail. You and everything you care about is at risk. Fortunately, CBD offers a lot of help for managing anger before it becomes out of control.

    SOMETIMES ANGER PROTECTS YOU

    If you’re in a dangerous situation, anger can help you by signaling the body to respond. Here’s what happens automatically.

    • the “fight or flight” system springs into action
    • the adrenal glands release stress hormones — cortisol and adrenaline (also known as epinephrine)
    • the heart pumps faster, moving more blood to the extremities so you can fight or flee to safety
    • blood pressure increases
    • muscles tense up
    • you may start sweating

    TOO MUCH ANGER HARMS YOUR BODY

    The body always responds to anger. Whether you’re in harm’s way and you need to protect yourself or you just “blew a fuse” over an argument or a traffic jam. “Fight or flight” is a body-wide reaction. Too much of it takes a toll on you and can create chronic health problems, including:

    • diabetes
    • high blood pressure
    • heart disease
    • a weakened immune system
    • depression
    • stress
    • insomnia

    A combination of these symptoms sets you up for:

    • complications in your personal relationships
    • problems at your job
    • difficulty concentrating

    WHEN ANGER TAKES OVER, YOU LOSE

    While the physical toll can be steep, many people experience the personal toll even more deeply. Human contact and connection are key to a fulfilling life and good mental health. Anger eats away at these more and more over time. Driving people away from you, damaging your self esteem and creating serious alienation.

    No matter what causes your anger — financial concerns, PTSD, stress, chronic pain, unresolved conflicts and memories, chemical imbalances in the brain — you don’t have to let it do any more damage.

    HOW DOES CBD OIL HELP WITH ANGER MANAGEMENT?

    CBD works on the body’s endocannabinoid system. Recent studies into the benefits of CBD for managing anger have shown that:

    • CBD helps maintain appropriate levels of dopamine, adrenaline, and norepinephrine — chemicals in the brain that help regulate anger and anxiety
    • CBD lowers stress levels
    • CBD improves cognitive function
    • CBD strengthens the body’s ability to block pain
    • CBD helps give you a sense of well-being

    FINDING THE RIGHT CBD OIL FOR YOUR NEEDS

    There is a wide range of CBD products available that can help with anger management. Talk to your doctor about how — and how much — CBD might be best for your particular situation.

    Tinctures and oils are easily absorbed by the bloodstream, allowing them to work quickly. One option for keeping calm and maintaining a sense of well-being is Easy Day Hemp Maximum Strength Oil. You’ll also find other helpful items if you browse around.

    TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK

    Managing anger is hard work. You may feel like you are alienating the people you love and need most. Losing your grip on your job. And worse. But there’s help [through so many sources].

    • CBD products
    • family and friends
    • your doctor
    • support groups
    • therapy
    • breathing exercises
    • yoga
    • cold water immersion

    Believe me, I know what uncontrolled anger feels like and looks like. I served for a decade as a US Navy SEAL and then an additional five years as a High Threat Security Contractor. Anger has been a huge part of my life, a motivator at some points and a crutch in others.

    So I also know you have the strength and discipline to conquer it. Make the call. Taking your life back is the best gift you can give yourself.
