Potcast 76: The Struggle Is Real
The struggle is real, and it’s normal - so let’s talk about it because chronic stress is a significant contributor to disease and death. On Potcast 76 Jo explores keys to controlling anxiety during stressful times and shares how she does (and doesn't) use cannabis to process stress and treat anxiety.
‘After the Show’ Notes
Don’t sweep stress under the rug, that can be an expensive and potentially deadly mistake. According to the American Psychological Association, 75 to 90 percent of all physician office visits are for stress-related ailments and complaints. And we know stress is linked to the six leading causes of death–heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide.
