Deciding to take CBD oil is a good move for your health, but what about your job? Unfortunately, prohibition and stigma still exist all around cannabis, including CBD. When people seek new employment, they often have to go through standard drug testing procedures that look for drugs of abuse. Some people have random, spot checks where they are subject to stringent testing anytime. For people who can have absolutely zero risk, I recommend abstaining from CBD oil because of the incredible stress of having a spot check on your livelihood go wrong. Let’s take a deeper look at the process and how to stay safe.
Short Answer, YES!!
Personally, anxiety has always been my crutch, a constant, greeting me every morning. Something I have learned to live with, a passenger in life responsible for more than a few outbursts of anger. Through daily discipline, plant medicines such as CBD, breath-work, and cold exposure, my anxiety is now at an all-time low. Equipped with the tools to set the day right, addressing anxiety immediately upon being ambushed with life's many triggers. Incorporating daily cold water immersion should be in everyone's toolbox, it is a proven, highly effective way to mitigate anxiety and the social isolation that comes with it.

It can hinder your life and, for some, be utterly debilitating while simultaneously wreaking havoc on personal & professional relationships. Its sufferers will often end up isolated from their peers, family, or friends, and slowly losing all sense of community. We are, after all, a tribal species, to pull away from society only invites further mental illness into our lives.
CBD vs. THC
What’s the difference in those acronyms and why does it matter?
Cannabinoids are molecules, fatty acid protein types that affect your body in a myriad of ways. Our ECS or endocannabinoid systems keep us balanced at the cellular level without us even knowing it. As we explored in a prior article on the ECS, endocannabinoids – the ones our body makes are mimicked and supported by the phytocannabinoids – from the cannabis Sativa plant. Yes, you are hard-wired to respond to this plant. This comes into play nicely because if you’re not making enough to keep your physiology humming, you can supplement with this plant.
