Did you know that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is 2-4 times more likely to affect women?
This illness can be completely debilitating for those who suffer from it. Characterised by extreme tiredness, it often worsens after activities requiring physical or mental energy.
Symptoms include ineffective sleep, bodily weakness, muscle & joint pain, headaches and issues with concentration or memory.
No one knows exactly what causes the condition, but many report it having started after a period of intense stress, post-surgery, or following a flu-like illness or infection such as a cold or stomach bug.
CFS sufferers experience great difficulty in their professional & personal lives, as they are unable to complete tasks as well as they did before, socialise with others or even leave the house.
Naturally this takes a heavy toll on their emotional state too, causing depression and anxiety as they struggle to come to terms with being unable to meet others' (and their own) expectations.
Not only do CBD’s mood-elevating effects offer a natural remedy to this emotional distress, but its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties can make life a lot more comfortable for those struggling with CFS.
By working to restore general ‘homeostasis’ (balance) to the body’s various systems & processes, CBD provides an effective all-round treatment for this mysterious condition whose exact causes have proven difficult to determine.
