Is CBD a New Nootropic?
Let’s start off by defining what Nootropic means – simply put Nootropic is a term used to describe a compound or substance that may improve cognitive function, memory, creativity or motivation in healthy individuals. Caffeine, L-theanine, ashwagandha, Ginkgo biloba and creatine are also commonly classified Nootropics, along with CDB (Cannabidiol).
Nootropics have been shown to provide the following benefits:
Heightened learning & memory formation
Improved focus, concentration & memory recall

Protection against oxidative damage
Early research suggests that CBD offers a number of health benefits related to cognitive function, making CBD an excellent nootropic compound that could be used to increase your brainpower at work. It is gaining popularity in the health and wellness world, with some scientific studies stating that CBD may help to improve cognitive performance by helping to reduce symptoms such as anxiety, depression and stress; while improving sleep quality. A lesser-known benefit of taking CBD is its ability to unleash your inner artist and unlock your creative mind.

Whether you are self-employed or work for a company, today’s modern work environment demands higher productivity and creativity, usually in a stressful atmosphere with the need for focus, concentration and motivation while working to tight deadlines.
