Woolly-Headed? How CBD Can Help With Brain Fog

Woolly-Headed? How CBD Can Help With Brain Fog

Brain fog is a collection of symptoms that can be experienced when cognition is affected, this means; perception, remembering, reasoning, judging, imagining, and problem solving. 

What Are the Symptoms of Brain Fog?

Feeling foggy can be experienced to differing levels of severity by each of us and can include:

  • Difficulty remembering words and numbers 
  • Misplacing items (like keys)
  • Trouble concentrating and absent mindedness
  • Losing a train of thought and being more easily distracted
  • Difficulty switching between tasks 
  • Forgetting the reason for doing something (like why you came into a room)
  • Forgetting appointments and events
  • Symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can also be another manifestation of cognitive difficulties.

What Causes Brain Fog?

On a cellular level brain fog is believed to be caused by high levels of inflammation. This inflammation hinders energy production in neurons, making it harder for them to communicate with one another, causing the brain to slow down and fatigue more easily.

What About Menopausal Brain Fog?

The fluctuation of hormone levels, especially estrogen, during the perimenopause can result in brain fog. It can also be caused by other menopause symptoms, like hot flushes, sleep disturbances and mood changes. If you are someone who has moderate to severe hot flushes, particularly at night, you may find that your memory is affected also.

How Can CBD Help With Brain Fog?

CBD is known as a nootropic compound. A nootropic is defined as a compound or supplement that enhances cognitive performance by increasing mental function; memory, creativity, motivation, and attention.

CBD can aid mental function and brain performance by helping to maximise cognitive function and reducing the negative impact of stress and inflammation in the body.
