With the COVID-19 pandemic having a huge impact on the mental health of millions of people across the globe, ensuring that people have access to resources that can help has never been so important.
Here at Orange County CBD, we know the importance of creating a balanced, stress free life so we couldn’t be happier to announce that we are supporting CALM, the leading movement against living miserably, as our official charity of the year.
Our Pledge to CALM
For each item sold online, Orange County CBD will donate £0.10p to CALM, charity number 1110621
CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) stands with everyone who’s struggling with life, no matter who they are, where they’re from or what they’re going through.
By building communities, offering life-saving services and embarking upon national campaigns to raise awareness, CALM provides a multitude of helpful resources for anyone who’s struggling, every single day of the year. No matter what.
Could CBD help?
One of the reasons we’ve chosen CALM as our partner charity, is because we believe that CBD can also have a hugely positive benefit on issues surrounding anxiety, depression and PTSD.
Several studies point to the potential benefits of CBD for anxiety, and here at Orange County CBD we’re thrilled to get messages every single day from our customers who’ve seen a massive change in how they feel after taking our products.
In 2011, a study looking into CBD’s effect on people with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) found that participants who received CBD rather than a placebo experienced overall reduced anxiety levels. In addition to this, multiple recent studies have shown that CBD may have a positive effect on PTSD symptoms, such as having nightmares and replaying negative memories.
These studies have looked at CBD as both a standalone PTSD treatment as well as a supplement to traditional treatments like medication and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) - and though much more research needs to be carried out, the results so far are highly positive.
How can you support CALM ?
Whether you want to donate your time, fundraise or get involved with one of the local or national events, there are plenty of ways you can support CALM. Find out more online today - and don’t forget, for each item sold we will donate £0.10p to directly to the charity.
