What is Ashwagandha?
Considered a neuro-supportive and nootropic herb, Ashwagandha is getting a lot of attention lately. This attention is probably due to the health benefits that it promotes! Not only can one experience healthy cognitive function and a supported nervous system, Ashwagandha has also been reported to have hormone balancing properties that can help support men's sexual health.
Where does it come from?
Ashwagandha is a winter cherry, a part of Solanaceae nightshade family — (the same family as the tomato) that originates from India, Middle East, Northern Africa and is now avaliable in the United States where it thrives in mild climates. Known throughout the Indian Ayurvedic system of medicine as a Rasayana (tonic), the plant has many known benefits that are now back by science

While both can provide powerful anti-stress relief, no two plants are the same. CBD and Ashwagandha can be a powerful – and natural – combination to incorporate as part of your stress aid and self care routine.
