Firstly, What Is CBD?
CBD is short for cannabidiol which is extracted from the Cannabis sativa plant. CBD does not contain tetrahydrocannabinol, known as THC, which is the component in marijuana that creates the psychoactive “high”. So in short, despite CBD coming from the same plant that produces marijuana CBD provides the benefits without the “high”.
Anxiety and CBD Oil
“Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in this country age 18 and older, or 18.1 [percent] of the population every year.” This is according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America.
So anxiety is a common condition but it can be distressing and disruptive. Most sufferers describe a feeling of extreme apprehension and unpleasant symptoms such as:
- A sense of impending doom or danger
- Rapid breathing
- Increased heart rate
- Rapid breathing
- Difficulty sleeping
- Difficulty concentrating
- Gastrointestinal problems
There are many pills available from your doctor to relieve and treat anxiety but many people feel there are side-effects and possible addictions they would prefer to avoid. This has led to an increased desire in the search for more natural remedies and lots of people have found CBD to be very successful.
Is There Any Proof You Can Relieve Anxiety With CBD Oil?
There has been a great deal of research into anxiety-related disorders to discover if CBD oil would be an effective treatment.
In one particular study carried out in 2015, “Cannabidiol as a Potential Treatment for Anxiety Disorders,” the researchers determined that CBD was indeed effective at reducing in reducing anxiety. They noted human tolerated CBD well with no adverse impacts on mood, movement or thinking.
Is CBD Legal?
The legality of CBD products varies from country to country and in the USA from state to state so you should check the situation where you live for your own safety.
Should I Try CBD?
Anxiety sufferers who have decided CBD is for them report an easing of their symptoms and some say they experience a pleasant calming effect when they have taken it.
As it is known CBD oil may cause some drowsiness, which is something to bear in mind, many individuals are using it to improve their sleep patterns and the quality of their sleep.
If you are considering trying CBD oil it is always advised that you speak to your doctor to keep them informed of your decisions. You should also discuss with them any possible interactions with any prescribed drugs you are taking. Pregnant and nursing women are not advised to take CBD oil.
In a world where there is an array of options created by the big pharmaceutical companies to treat and ease anxiety and its symptoms it’s always worth looking at all the options. CBD oil is being hailed as a wonderful addition to the treatment toolkit of many people.
