CBD In the Workplace

Benefits of CBD For Work Performance

Whether your work is physically demanding, mentally demanding or both, CBD offers a wealth of potential benefits that could potentially boost your job performance.

CBD In the Workplace

Better Focus and Concentration

CBD has been found to improve cognitive function in conditions of cognitive impairment, including certain psychiatric, neurological and neurodegenerative, and inflammatory conditions, indicating that it may help restore and maintain healthy brain function under stressful conditions.

Improved Endurance

CBD may help improve heart and brain function by protecting the mitochondria, the energy factory inside of every cell. In preliminary studies on laboratory animals CBD protected against skeletal muscle damage So, whether your job is physically demanding or mentally stressful, or if you are putting in long hours ahead of a looming deadline, CBD may help you be more resilient and therefore, more productive.

Anti-anxiety

One of the most sought-after benefits of CBD is its ability to reduce anxiety. Preliminary research shows that it does this by affecting the structures of the brain where past memories and emotions are stored as well as those structures that anticipate future events based on stored memories, though its precise mechanisms are yet to be revealed. If you suffer from mild anxiety at work, CBD may help smooth out some of the anxiety-producing bumps and challenges, allowing you to sail smoothly through your workday.

Better sleep

CBD can improve sleep quality by improving the REM phase of sleep. This can improve your work performance on many levels. Better sleep is always good for improving mood and outlook, helping you get along better with clients, customers, and co-workers. And you are likely to produce fewer errors.

Pain relief

Pain, whether acute or chronic, can lead to lost workdays and erode your productivity while on the job. CBD’s analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects have been well-established over thousands of years of use in herbal traditions around the world as well as through modern scientific studies. Unlike over-the-counter or prescription pain meds, CBD supplements are safe with few to no side effects.

Improved Immune Function

If your work exposes you to every cold and flu that’s going around and then some, its good insurance to take proactive steps to protect your immune system. Cannabinoids have been found inside of white blood cells, where they are believed to perform immune-modulating effects. CBD, in particular, is also reported to have a calming effect on the immune system that some researchers say may help with the management of autoimmune conditions, such as multiple sclerosis. Using CBD regularly may help reduce your yearly number of sick days.

Blood Sugar Control

Skipping breakfast, eating sugary foods, or working through lunch can lead to a mid-afternoon energy slump. CBD can help even out the blood sugar roller coaster many people experience throughout the day by improving the function of the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. CBD has been shown to increase insulin production and decrease insulin resistance, thereby decreasing fasting blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics. Supplementing with CBD may help get you through until lunch and curb mid-afternoon caffeine and sweet cravings.

Regular doses spaced throughout the day can keep you on an even keel no matter what the workday brings. Doses can also be timed to occur before a high-stress event like an important meeting with a new client or after a stressful work deadline to help restore balance.

Benefits of Daily CBD Consumption For the Endocannabinoid System:

Benefits of CBD For Work Performance

Regular CBD intake helps keep your endocannabinoid system “topped up” with beneficial cannabinoids. This is particularly helpful if you’re one of the many people who, as some evidence shows, may be prone to endocannabinoid deficiency, caused by stress, illness or other cannabinoid-depleting conditions.

Non-Intoxicating:

CBD is not psychoactive and does not cause any intoxicating effects so it doesn’t impair your ability to reason, make important decisions, or operate machinery. CBD supplements that are made from full-spectrum CBD oil contain trace amounts of THC, the psychoactive substance in cannabis; This reflects the amount of THC present in hemp plants that are cultivated for CBD, which by law must be less than 0.3%. However, the amounts of THC you would consume at normal dosage levels would not lead to intoxication. UBIX CBD is made from organically grown hemp varieties selected for their high levels of CBD and trace levels of THC, making them non-toxic as well as non-intoxicating.

Workplace Drug Screening Considerations:

Hemp seeds and hemp oil have been on the market since the mid-1990s and most work-related mandatory drug tests allow for trace amounts of THC present in individuals who consume these products. Similarly, the amount of detectable THC in the circulation of someone who takes CBD supplements usually falls well within the acceptable range on these types of tests. For example, the federal drug-testing program uses a cutoff of 15ng/mL THC, though some employers allow higher levels as their cutoffs. In one study, participants who consumed 0.6 mg of THC per day in the form of hemp oil for 40 consecutive days had only as much as 5.2 ng/mL present in their bloodstream on testing. That said, the best way to stay in compliance with your workplace regulations is by checking your employer’s THC policy and testing guidelines before supplementing with CBD.
