Company on a Mission
Exact Nature’s singular mission to provide healthy, THC-free CBD-based products to help recovering addicts and alcoholics face the addictive cravings and changes in mood and sleep patterns that can come in sobriety.
The top four reasons for using CBD are anxiety (42.6%), sleep problems (42.5%), stress (37%), and general health and wellbeing (37%).
Mood, Calm, and Focus
Serenity products use premium CBD and all-natural ingredients to bring relaxation and focus to life every day. Put another way, they help you chase fewer shiny objects.
Serenity’s all-natural products help mediate negative activity in the brain to act as a kind of natural antidepressant. With an emphasis on calm and focus, Serenity products make it easier to be positive, hopeful, and productive.
Choose from capsules, oil, or drink powder. Or combine them – more is better. Your body will thank you. CBD works best over time when it is used consistently.
Serenity’s ingredients have lots of practice in bringing focus and calm to those in need. Ashwagandha, for example, has been used to fight depression and boost brain function since ancient times. Ditto for gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain to help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear. And St. John’s Wort is helpful for those experiencing chronic depression. Across the board, Serenity calls on ingredients to help level you out, naturally.
For many in addiction recovery, depression moves in when the active addiction moves out. Exact Nature has developed its Serenity products for people suffering from depression and anxiety and who may benefit from a lightened mood and greater focus.
Living with anxiety or depression isn’t easy. CBD is believed to help with your serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate your mood. Clinical trials support the efficacy of CBD as an anxiolytic, antipsychotic, and antidepressant, with, importantly, a positive risk-benefit profile. CBD helps by promoting relaxation and a sense of calm, leading to reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression that become more manageable over time. CBD can also help you increase your concentration levels and focus.
Overall, current evidence indicates CBD has considerable potential as a treatment for multiple anxiety disorders, with need for further study of chronic and therapeutic effects in relevant clinical populations.
More About CBD for Depression
The potential therapeutic use of CBD compounds has been attracting great interest, especially for managing neuropsychiatric disorders, in some part due to the relative lack of efficacy of the current treatments. Numerous studies have been carried out using the main phytocannabinoids, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and cannabidiol (CBD). CBD displays an interesting pharmacological profile without the potential for becoming a drug of abuse, unlike THC. Preliminary clinical trials also support the efficacy of CBD as an anxiolytic, antipsychotic, and antidepressant, and more importantly, a positive risk-benefit profile. These promising results support the development of large-scale studies to further evaluate CBD as a potential new drug for the treatment of these psychiatric disorders.
In many cases, stress-induced depression has been shown to be aided by CBD as a result of the compound’s effect on the brain. CBD has also been shown to influence how the brain’s receptors interact with the serotonin in your body’s system. CBD hosts beneficial anti-inflammatory benefits as well as relaxation benefits that will assist with insomnia caused by depression.
A study published in the Permanente Journal (2019) assessed the extent to which CBD benefits people with anxiety disorders. The study found that 57 of the 72 adult volunteers (79.2%) with primary concerns of anxiety and poor sleep showed a significant decrease in their anxiety levels within the first month. Sleep quality and duration also improved within the first month in 48 patients (66.7%).
Anxiety disorders have the highest lifetime prevalence of any mental illness worldwide, leading to high societal costs and economic burden. Current pharmacotherapies for anxiety disorders are associated with adverse effects and low efficacy, which has spurred interest in cannabidiol (CBD) with its potential therapeutic properties and minimal side-effects.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is a pharmacologically broad-spectrum drug that in recent years has drawn increasing interest as a treatment for a range of neuropsychiatric disorders. Evidence supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
CBD has also been found to help lower stress by managing the cortisol—the fight or flight hormone—levels in our body and to reduce anxiety in SAD (social anxiety disorder) related to its effects on activity in limbic and paralimbic brain areas.
Cannabidiol (CBD) is emerging as a natural way to combat chronic stress. Anxiety, stress, and panic disorders develop in part due to a dysfunctional change in your brain chemistry, which can be brought on by stress. However, the cannabidiol compound has proven effects on your brain that can help prevent and rectify these dysfunctional processes. Here are several ways that CBD can help alleviate stress:
While some people need mental relief, others just need more mental control so that they can focus better on the task at hand. If you find it hard to focus on work, then you can likely improve your focus by adding CBD to your daily regimen. CBD can help relax your mind more and, in the process, making it easier for you to focus.
Help with PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder can be debilitating, and the calming effects of CBD together with therapy have been shown to produce results with a decrease in symptoms in approximately eight weeks. Studies have shown that CBD reduces activity in the amygdala which is the part of the brain that responds to threats, and its use is therapeutic and beneficial for PTSD sufferers.
Will Serenity products work for me?
As with all pharmaceuticals and over-the-counter products, results may vary. The number one reason people take CBD is for anxiety. Research confirms what millions of Americans are experiencing firsthand – that CBD can lighten your load. Even better, Serenity products use both CBD and specially selected ingredients long used to improve mood and focus.
Does Exact Nature Serenity work on depression and/or anxiety?
Are Serenity products safe for recovering addicts?
Yes, Serenity products, and CBD generally, are safe for people in addiction recovery. They are non-addictive and non-intoxicating. The THC, like the motivation for using unhelpful substances, has been removed.
Will Exact Nature’sSerenityCBD-based products get me high?
No, nada, nyet. There’s zero possibility that Exact Nature Serenity products will get you high. The THC has been removed from the CBD and no Serenity products contain intoxicating substances. They are, however, chockful of goodness with more than a hundred cannabinoids and several purpose-driven ingredients.
How does CBD Work?
CBD binds to receptors in the brain and throughout the body to help balance the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a system of neurotransmitters that run throughout the brain and body. The ECS, in turn, steadies important bodily functions like sleep, mood, pain sensation, and addictive impulses.
What's the difference between CBD, THC, cannabis, marijuana, and hemp? Both hemp and marijuana derive from cannabis. The primary difference is their chemical composition. Marijuana contains high levels of THC, cultivated to produce a “high,” and has only a small amount of CBD. Hemp, on the other hand, which is the source of most CBD, including Exact Nature’s. Hemp-derived CBD is rich in cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, with only a very small amount of THC (less than 0.3% by law).
So, marijuana can get you high while hemp cannot. To take it a step further, Exact Nature removes the THC from its products making it “broad spectrum” and thereby rendering it completely non-intoxicating.
