Students & Teachers & Stress, Oh My!

Students & Teachers & Stress, Oh My!

Hello! Jeremiah here from Team CBD Jubilee. 🙂

In 2017, I finished my Bachelor’s degree, moved to Indianapolis, and began teaching kindergarten- 7th-grade computer science. I had never taught in a classroom, but I had worked in various youth organizations around the country. I didn’t major in computer science, on the contrary, I was an English major and book nerd. However, my time serving in the U.S. Air Force working in Cyber Operations spoke for my computer skills. So, the school agreed to hire me on an emergency waiver. In my naivety, I thought that my experiences might prepare me for the task at hand. I was incorrect. 

No amount of student teaching experience can prepare one for the hilarity of kindergarteners, or the mood swings of middle schoolers. Ultimately, I lasted two years in the classroom before realizing I was ready for a different path. My time as a teacher probably taught me more than I was able to teach my students. Between the brief glimpse I got into an education career, and the fact that my partner is a high school administrator, I’ve garnered some insights into the pressures and mental/emotional health issues that our students and teachers face. For the record, I will not be speaking to students who are younger than 18, that’s for a parent and guardian to decide with the help of a family doctor. But, I will speak to the “student/teacher experience” in general terms. 

Teachers rarely sleep. Teachers don’t get normal lunch breaks. Teachers usually work over their annual (fall, holiday, spring, summer) “breaks”. Teachers spend all day in the classroom with our children and then spend their evenings grading homework and preparing for the next day’s lessons. It’s a never-ending cycle that is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining, not to mention the financial stress of being dramatically undervalued and underpaid. In today’s classrooms, many teachers are operating as social workers, mentors, and educators, thus there’s a certain degree of emotional baggage they process or release before coming home. Every aspect of this profession requires intentional steps to maintain balance in the other areas of life. And if the teacher’s role has become more difficult in the capitalist-driven era of 2021, you know the role of “student” has become more challenging as well. 

Anyone who has spent time in the classroom knows that the workload is rarely small. Stress and anxiety over assignments and exams can be debilitating. Carrying a backpack, bending over a computer, or sitting at a desk for hours a day can cause excruciating pain and discomfort. For those working on their thesis or upper-level projects, the ability to focus on a single task while your to-do-list continues to grow is a real struggle. And who among us kept normal adult sleeping hours in college? Enter the litany of issues we’ve already mentioned — enter CBD.

CBD is known for helping with anxiety, pain, and sleeplessness. However, other powerful cannabinoids serve other purposes. CBC may help with focus. CBG may calm anxiety, and allow you to be present and alert (and won’t make you sleepy). CBN, on the other hand, may help you find deep restorative sleep… The list goes on! These cannabinoids feed your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) and allow your body to do its reparative work naturally. When you take these supplements, you’re feeding your body something it makes naturally: cannabinoids. At CBD Jubilee, we’ve carefully curated products featuring all of these cannabinoids to help students and teachers alike find more joy and productivity in learning. Overcome pain, stress, lack of focus, and exhaustion with these products today and learn how much easier your experience in school can become. 

Students and teachers from around the country are joining in the chorus of those singing CBD’s praise. Nearly 50% of New York college students reported using CBD to help cope with student life in a recent study. And this phenomenon isn’t isolated to the east coast. It is happening across the globe as more students learn about the benefits, as discussed in this article. As the stigma and ignorance around hemp and cannabis products slowly recede from mainstream American culture, CBD will continue to take center stage as a safe, daily supplement, perfect for students and teachers alike.

If you know a student or education professional who may need help focusing, sleeping, relaxing, or de-stressing, point them towards CBD; or better yet, send them to CBD Jubilee! There’s no virtue in suffering and suffering itself serves as a distraction from the knowledge that students are supposed to be learning. It IS possible to find balance in life, even for students and teachers. It IS possible to have a focused and alert mind and to feel relief and peace in your body. It’s simply a matter of educating our educators on the benefits of CBD. 

 

How are you doing during this Pandemic?

How are you doing during this Pandemic?

Wow. Talk about stressful times! Everybody is sheltering at home and our ability to connect — other than via phone or computer — is greatly compromised. This is difficult for everyone. We are in a time that is unlike anything we have experienced before. We know we need to stay home and stay away from our loved ones and friends and yet, what we crave is physical closeness. We want to be able to share a meal or give each other a hug.

Some people are faring better than others. They’re catching up on cleaning and purging their apartment or house. They’re taking classes online and playing games with family and friends via Zoom or Face Time. For others, it is not so easy.

A pandemic is scary. No disputing that fact. Whether you are exposed, contract a mild case, end up in the hospital on a ventilator or know someone who has — this is frightening to everyone. That means we are living with a great deal of fear, anxiety and depression. All of which can compromise our health.

How about an opportunity to offer your body a supplement that may help you physically, mentally, and emotionally? CBD has the capacity to feed those receptor sites of your Endocannabinoid System that fire up to help you get back in balance. You may need CBD during the day, the night or a little of both. There are so many different delivery systems: liquids, edibles, flower, topicals, coffee and more. Give us a call or check out the website for what products you might like to try. A little CBD can go a long way to helping you feel more like you are on solid ground.

CBD Not Working For You ?

CBD Not Working For You ?

Excited about the CBD hype, yet you can’t seem to find the right CBD that works for you?

Searching for the right CBD product that helps your Endocannibinoid System (ECS) function at its best can take some time. Don’t give up too soon. When taking CBD, our target is to support your ECS and not just quash symptoms. Supplementing with CBD strengthens that receptor system so that you can lead a healthier and happier life. Research scientists have claimed that our ECS, is one of the most important physiologic systems involved in maintaining and establishing human health (Strause, 2017). Didn’t know you had an ECS? You are not alone!  We have only known about our ECS in the last 25 years. However, since there has been a rise in research in both CBD and THC and how it affects the body, they have identified an extraordinary multiplex network of cannabinoid receptors (CBr) expressed in cells of both the central and peripheral nervous system. In addition, animals have one too. Pretty cool right? Nevertheless, our top priority is to bolster our ECS and get our bodies back in balance.

There are many forms to take CBD; tinctures, oils, gel caps, edibles, water, vapes, etc.  Everyone is different so it may take some time to play around to see what works best for you. Not sure what brand? Do some research on your own and then come in and talk to us. We are here to educate you about CBD, how it works in your body and the many different options available. Make sure you are getting the best quality CBD. Most, if not all CBD companies will have their Certificates of Analysis (COA) on their website so you can see exactly what you are putting into your body. Here at CBD Jubilee, we provide the cleanest and safest CBD lines on the market. Everything we carry is non-GMO, third-party lab-tested and we’ve tried it ourselves. Our top brands are Bluebird Botanicals, Hemplucid, CBD Living, Medterra and Select CBD. These are our best selling brands and people come back for them because they WORK. If you are still hesitant, stop on by and let us provide you with the knowledge and support your need.

Challenging Days

Challenging Days

We live in a very stressed-out culture. From young kids, to teenagers, to adults and elders — everyone seems to be grappling with a fair amount of tension in their life. That tension manifests in so many ways. Some people get headaches, others lose focus, some have digestive troubles and many turn to pharmaceutical or recreational drugs to calm down.

On top of all that — we have had a crazy winter. So many grey days and then out of nowhere the sun comes out. It’s a rollercoaster of stress that is no fun to ride. Consider the fact that CBD has the ability to trigger our own Endocannabinoid System (ECS) to help our bodies get into balance. CBD is working to get your ECS to produce more of your own endogenous cannabinoids. It is amazing that our bodies have an innate ability to do this just like we produce enzymes and hormones.

Our bodies and brains crave homeostasis. When you have anxiety, insomnia, pain, etc. then your body is not in homeostasis. CBD may be the answer to how your body processes stress so that instead of feeling poorly — you can feel well. And don’t forget …spring is just around the corner.

 

Try Something New & Healing

Try Something New & Healing

If you are someone who struggles with sleep then it is likely you have already tried many products to help you get a solid night’s rest, such as: herbal blends, neurotransmitter supplements, minerals, pharmaceuticals and more. Or, you have been doing a yoga and meditation practice, have given up caffeine and made sure to have good sleep hygiene.

The thing is…none of those options may be working for you. Maybe your brain is simply overloaded and your ability to quiet your mind is out of reach. Maybe you also have chronic pain and finding a comfortable position in which to sleep is impossible. Or, your body just doesn’t respond well to whatever you have tried and you may have experienced negative side effects.

This is the beauty of CBD. Non addictive, non-psychoactive, non-steroidal and filled with wonderful plant constituents such as essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, flavanoids, Vitamin E and terpenes (aromatic oils of the plant that also have healing properties). All of these elements work together to get your body back into balance or homeostasis.

CBD works in your body to stimulate the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) receptors that are a part of your brain and your nervous, digestive and immune systems. Some products also have added herbs or melatonin to help one sleep. There are so many options and no one product or potency works for all people. Come into our CBD store in  Indianapolis and talk to us or check out our fabulous website www.cbdjubilee.com. We would be happy to give you as much information as we can about CBD in general and the products we sell.

We want EVERYONE to get a great night of sleep so that your body may be restored and rejuvenated for a new day.
