The Covid-effect

It’s becoming increasingly difficult to escape the Covid-19 hysteria, you’re stuck indoors all day despite that one hour allowed outside your front door and the media is filled with the scary latest updates. It’s forced our society into a “new-normal” and as human beings, we thrive on social interaction so it’s no surprise some of us are starting to feel the isolation-blues.

According to The World Health Organisation (WHO) “This time of crisis is generating stress in the population.” [1]

It has proven benefits to help reduce anxiety, stress and depression. Also known as the ‘miracle drug’ with minimum side effects

Firstly, being at home essentially means you are:

• Reducing your carbon footprint, our earth is healing
• Slowing down, taking life at your own pace
• Learning about the amazing benefits available from medicinal cannabis
• Contributing to the reduction of this virus spreading
