CBD Oil For Anxiety?

CBD is gaining attention in the medicine industry because of its promising health benefits, including the many anecdotal evidence that state its potential health benefit to various illnesses. Due to that, more scientists and medical professionals have started their hands in studying the effects of CBD for different health concerns,  including stress and anxiety.

According to the Healthcanal.com, cannabidiol has been shown to mitigate stress in certain animals, such as rats. It was observed that the study subjects manifested lower behavioral signs of anxiety. In addition to that, the physiological symptoms they exhibited like increased heart rate were also improved. More so, it's important to note that these studies are applicable only to generalized types of anxiety, which the study subjects were placed under.

When it comes to other types of this condition, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), and even anxiety-induced insomnia, CBD has also shown positive impacts. In fact, a 2011 study revealed that people with social anxiety disorder who were subjects of the said study had reduced anxiety levels after they were administered with 400 milligrams of CBD.

Furthermore, other studies also show how CBD can help with people with PTSD, especially those who experienced nightmares and who had tendencies to replay negative memories.

Does CBD Oil help anxiety?
Yes, it helps although more studies are still needed in order to gain confirmation from the medical community. However, there is a published study from Permanente Journal that says that 79% of the study participants manifested reduced anxiety all the more that there are additional studies that prove CBD's encouraging potential as a treatment. The results have already made mental health advocates hopeful enough in considering CBD as a treatment for anxiety, which has long been a concern for people who are suffering from it.

Despite the continuous reminder set forth by the medical experts to not fully depend on one's treatment of CBD, there are still many people who cling onto its potential. In fact, a 2019 Gallup Poll revealed that 14% of the Americans use CBD. Another poll also shows that 37% of CBD users utilize CBD for anxiety with several of these participants noting its effectiveness.

Of course, CBD's value cannot be diminished in spite of the many cautions the medical experts have provided because CBD users find it as a holistic treatment to manage anxiety that does not cause harmful side effects. CBD does it differently as it utilizes the natural interaction of CBD and the human body through the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for self-regulation and mood changes.

How the endocannabinoid system works has to do with human bodies producing endocannabinoids everyday, which then bind to the receptors found all over human bodies. Examples of these receptors are CB1 and CB2 receptors, which are typically found in the peripheral nervous system and central nervous system.

It works for anxiety disorders and other neurological disorders since it is also anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, according to Joseph Cohen who is a cannabis doctor from Boulder, Colorado.
