Like countless others impacted by the psychological and physical effects of an extended quarantine, Eric Balshin, CEO of Yesterday Wellness, finds himself more stressed out and tired than ever before. After a day juggling between parenting a 2-year-old and work responsibilities, Balshin and his wife use CBD to unwind and take the edge off. “By the end of the day we are both stressed, anxious, and exhausted. Frankly, I am not sure either one of us would have been able to handle these 18-hour days without it.”

According to Anna Symonds, director of education for East Fork Cultivars, CBD works by supplementing the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) and supporting its optimal functioning. Symonds describes the ECS as “the body’s primary homeostatic regulatory system, which helps keep the activity of all of the body’s systems in balance. This includes processes such as stress response, memory, sleep, pain, immune regulation, metabolism, motor function, mood, and more.”
