CBD Self-Care for Back-to-School Stress
The kiddos are headed back to school! Are you happy, stressed out, or both? Back to school is one of the most exciting and stressful times of the year for parents and kids. After a long summer break, it can be tough to transition back to a strict school schedule. Plus, buying the latest and greatest back-to-school supplies can be costly, which only adds to your stress level.
So, for all you super-moms who are super busy getting the kids ready to go back to school, don’t forget to take care of YOU.
A happy mom means a happy home!
A daily regimen of CBD helps alleviate back-to-school stress, so you can keep your cool while tackling a daunting to-do list. Cannabidiol calms the body and mind, easing stress-related body aches and tension headaches that could quickly derail your progress.

How Does CBD Ease the Transition Back to School?
Transitions can be tough. Anytime there’s a change in the everyday routine, it’s natural to feel disoriented while you adjust to the new normal. Switching from a laid-back summer to a strict school schedule can cause physical and mental stress that ruins your day.
Suddenly, your child needs to wake up early to catch the school bus, remember to take a backpack and lunch (or $), and complete homework assignments on time. Don’t worry! CBD helps you stay calm and balanced while the family settles into the new school year.
Here’s how cannabidiol helps ease the stressful transition between summertime and schooltime...
CBD Relieves Anxiety & Stress
When kids head back to school, parental nervousness can spike. As a mom, you worry about your child’s adjustment to the back-to-school setting—new grade level, new teachers, new friends, and new homework assignments. New worries. Will my child be okay? Will he/she be bullied? Will he/she listen and learn?
Like kids, parents also feel back-to-school excitement, anxiety, and stress.
Of course, your worries are warranted, but you can calm them by:
Talking to other parents
Communicating with your child’s teacher
CBD has been shown to be an effective natural solution for reducing stress and anxiety. Cannabidiol promotes calm throughout the body, so it helps you feel less overwhelmed by school-related stress.
CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) to promote homeostasis, or balance, throughout the body and the mind. How? CBD contains phytocannabinoids that help the ECS run smoothly, which decreases unhealthy stress.
Basically, CBD helps your racing mind chill out. So, add CBD tinctures to the back-to-school supply list for YOU. A dropperful of tincture under your tongue each morning is a relaxing way to start the school day as everyone scrambles to eat breakfast, pack lunches, and make it to the school bus stop on time.
Plus, the relaxation lasts for hours, so you’ll still have the healthy peace of mind to complete work-related or home-related tasks while the kids are in school.
CBD Alleviates Body Pain & Headaches
You already know how stress can sabotage your state of mind, but back-to-school stress also wreaks havoc on the body.
Your body and mind work together and when the mind is out of whack, so is the body. Mental distress can lead to:
Body aches and pains
High blood pressure
Yikes! Take your CBD!
Cannabidiol helps alleviate all of the above. Research has shown CBD contains anti-inflammatory properties that significantly reduce pain associated with inflammation.
CBD tinctures and gummies are great natural solutions that deliver fast-acting relief all over. CBD topicals are best for localized muscle aches and pains.
CBD Promotes a Good Night’s Sleep
Back-to-school stress is a common cause of insomnia, especially if your child isn’t adjusting well. Tossing and turning interrupt a healthy sleep cycle, depriving the body of the relaxation it needs for recovery.
CBD softgels with melatonin help calm your racing mind, so you can fall asleep—and stay asleep. The body repairs daily damage overnight, helping you wake up feeling refreshed and energized for the new school day ahead.
A good night’s sleep is essential for you—and the child who’s counting on you for emotional support.
A well-rested mom helps the school year run more smoothly!
