You feel a tickle catch in your throat. Before you know it, a cough or two has escaped. Your housemate starts slowly backing away. Oh no, you think – has corona come for me?
A little dry throat is a pretty normal occurrence for cannabis lovers, but coronavirus has us second-guessing every cough. With South Africa under lockdown, we’re all stressing about our personal health, the safety of our loved ones, the future of our businesses and careers and of course worrying over how to make ends meet in the middle of a crashing economy.
“General levels of anxiety are high, this is a situation the world has not faced before,” says clinical psychologist Dr Colinda Linde, who is on the board of the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG).
“In any situation where there are many unknowns and uncertainty, limited controllability, also no clear end in sight, stress and reactivity will increase. For some this takes the form of denial and trying to act as if it’s all ok, others may begin to act out impulsively or seek comfort in food or substances, and some will be overwhelmed by despair.”
With anxiety seeping into all of our lives, many people are experiencing high levels of stress throughout the day and are struggling to sleep at night, which has a negative effect on the immune system. If you are looking for a natural way to help soothe your stress and help your immune system function at its best, CBD oil is the obvious choice.
Cannabidiol (CBD) has well-recognised properties of calming anxiety and easing insomnia, as evidenced in medical studies and reviews. In fact, it’s such a crucial part of many people’s health regimes that we at Zootly have clearance to sell it during lockdown as an essential service.
Our top-quality medical grade CBD oil comes with an innovative mouth spray in four delicious flavours – liquorice, spearmint, bubblegum and original.
If you’re ready to beat coronavirus anxiety the natural way, shop our CBD range here. Your purchase will be couriered to your home within a day or two during the lockdown period.
Zootly says: These are crazy times we’re living in, but they shouldn’t drive you crazy with worry. A few drops of CBD oil a day will help keep the stress at bay and the doctor away!
