Anxiety is your body's natural response to stress. It's a feeling of fear or apprehension about what's to come. 

Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.

 

There are eight factors that can affect our cardiac health. Our resting heart rate is one of them. For most people, a resting heart rate between 60 and 100 beats per minute is considered normal.It's affected negatively by stress, hormones and medication. Getting into better shape can not only lower your resting heart rate, it could help save your life: Studies have shown a higher rate is associated with higher risk for death, even among people who don't have traditional heart disease risk factors.

Breathe, by Ilera Healthcare is a 2:1 THC:CBD vape cartridge, is specifically formulated to help patients with anxiety. It’s 34.6% and 17.3% of THC and CBD, respectively, is just enough to lower anxiety to where your quality of life is restored. The addition of the terpene Linalool produces a relaxed and improved mood effect while making the immune system more resilient to the destructive effects of stress. Linalool may also have muscle-relaxing and pain-relieving properties; its behavioral effects may largely be mediated by its effects in the brain. One way is through blocking the receptors for the primary excitatory brain chemical, glutamate, which could account for Linalool’s potentially anti-epileptic properties in certain forms of epilepsy.
