CBD brain Fog

What is Brain Fog?

Brain fog is a term that can be used to describe a tremendously upsetting symptom though not a medical condition in itself. People with brain fog often describe their state as being “woolly-headed” and are unable to think clearly.

Similar to thinking through a ball of wool, this could be both mentally and emotionally draining as people with brain fog can no longer focus on completing day-to-day activities with ease.

Associated with fuzzy-headedness and mental fatigue, brain fog is a common condition caused by inflammation within the body. Largely marked by anxiety and inhibited brain function, people with brain fog find It difficult to concentrate for a long time and might easily forget an assigned task.

Can brain fog affect my memory and cognitive Function?

Yes, brain fog affects both memory and cognitive functions. Brain fog directly upsets the central nervous system (CNS).

What are the symptoms of Brain Fog?

Brain fog is quite a large umbrella under which there are a wide variety of symptoms. Hence, no absolute tell-tale sign.  However common symptoms associated with brain fog include memory problems, poor concentration, feelings of confusion and disorientation, fatigue, and digestive issues.

People with brain fog also have trouble solving problems, experience diminished visual and spatial skills, and may find it difficult to calculate and process information.

What causes brain fog?

There are numerous causes of brain fog.  Causes of brain fog may sometimes be complex referring to underlying issues. However, common causes of brain fog include:

  • Lack of sleep

The need for great sleep quality cannot be overemphasised. Brain fog could sometimes result from a lack of sleep and rest. It could also be caused by terrible sleep quality.

  • Hormonal Changes

Hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause could also trigger brain fog. The change in the levels of progesterone and estrogen hormones in the body can affect memory and cognitive function causing forgetfulness or cloudy thinking. These hormonal changes could balance out on their own or require that you visit a physician.

  • Medical conditions

Brain fog could also be a symptom of other medical conditions. Patients with anemia, migraines, and autoimmune diseases such as lupus and multiple sclerosis may often experience brain fog.

  • Mental health conditions

Health conditions that affect the brain are also known to have brain fog as a symptom. People with conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention-deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and depression could find it difficult to think clearly and often experience brain fog.

  • Poor Diets

Nutritional deficiencies can be harmful to your health in more ways than one. Unhealthy diets may upset the hormonal balance of your body due to the presence of pro-inflammatory elements. This could lead to chronic fatigue and brain fog. Inadequate levels of key vitamins like B12 have also been shown to result in brain fogs.

  • Stress

While everyone experiences some form of stress in life daily, chronically elevated stress levels are very detrimental to your health. Chronically high stress levels result in a significant rise in the body’s stress hormone - cortisol. This does not only cause fatigue but could also impair your memory and cognitive function ultimately causing brain fog.

  • Medications

Brain fog could also be the side effect of a medication administered to you. It is therefore important that you discuss the possible side effects of your prescribed medications with your doctor.

How do I get rid of brain fog fast?

There is no general antidote for this condition due to its vast range of causes. However, there are home remedies and lifestyle changes you could apply in the treatment of brain fog. This includes:

  1. getting quality sleep
  2. reviewing and meeting your dietary needs
  3. taking a blood test to check your hormone and vitamin levels
  4. lowering your stress levels.
  5. speaking with your doctor about possible side effects of your medication
  6. identifying and addressing the underlying cause (if any) since brain fog is a symptom itself.
  7. engaging in activities you find pleasurable

Is there a scientific approach to the treatment of brain fog?

Due to the increased rise in this condition, scientific studies have been carried out to proffer a solution or cure to the condition. Scientific research has proven that the Cannabidiol oil (CBD oil) derived from the cannabis plant can play a vital role in the treatment of brain fog and could be used as a suitable natural remedy for the condition for some individuals.

What is CBD?

CBD refers to Cannabidiol, a nootropic compound now hailed for its numerous health benefits to man. Cannabidiol is the second most prevalent of the active ingredients present in cannabis. Cannabis is a psychoactive drug derived from the cannabis plant. Its intake could cause mental and physical effects such as euphoria and altered states of mind due to the action of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). However, CBD extracted from the cannabis plant, interacts with the endocannabinoid system and reduces inflammation in man.

What is CBD oil?

As you can tell from the name, CBD oil is related to Cannabidiol. The oil is a derivative of the cannabis plant rich in cannabinoids. CBD oil is made by extracting CBD from the cannabis plant and diluting it with a carrier oil (often essential oils). Containing only trace elements of THC, the compound responsible for the intoxicating feeling gotten from the intake of cannabis, CBD oil by itself does not cause a “high”.

CBD may also interact with the through indirect mechanisms such as enhanced action of the endogenous cannabinoid ligand anandamide.

Does CBD give you brain fog?

No. Rather than give you brain fog, CBD helps reduce the severity of brain fog and improves brain function.

What does CBD oil do to the brain?

CBD is a primary natural remedy for brain fog. It improves brain function by relieving the effect of stress and inflammation in the body. Some of the impacts of CBD oil on the brain include:

Substance abuse treatment:

Studies have shown that CBD is useful in the treatment of addiction and is known to greatly reduce addictive urges. In rats, CBD has been shown to reduce morphine dependence. It also inhibits withdrawal syndromes.

  • Reducing inflammation and imbalances

CBD oil helps reduce brain fog due to its overall anti-inflammatory effect on the body. It relieves inflammation and imbalances in the gut and increases blood flow to the brain. 

  • Promote sound sleep

CBD can help you have a better night's rest. This in turn ensures that your body is relaxed and reduces cortisol levels in the body. Hereby, reducing the chances as well as the severity of having brain fog.

  • Relief stress and anxiety

Studies show that CBD oil can relieve anxiety symptoms in some sufferers and suggests it as a potential antidote for pain and insomnia. Hence, CBD oil could provide some relief for an individual who has anxiety and insomnia as contributing factors to their brain fog. Research proves that CBD reduces heart rate and blood pressure but in animal models of stress.

  • Increasing brain cell production

Ongoing research also suggests that CBD is capable of:

  1. Alleviating cancer-related symptoms
  2. May reduce acne
  3. Have neuroprotective properties
  4. Antipsychotic effects

Ultimately, CBD targets the endocannabinoid system in the body and binds with the chemical receptors. Some individuals find that the action of CBD yields an improvement in factors that contribute to brain fog. CBD has been demonstrated as an effective treatment of epilepsy in several clinical trials. There is also preliminary evidence that CBD may be a useful treatment for many other medical conditions.
