With all the benefits of CBD, the one that stands out and is most commented on is the effects on ANXIETY. At first, it seems hard to define but as researchers hone the cause and effect things are becoming a lot more focused. For me it seems we all have nervous reactions, the butterflies in your stomach when you’re anticipating something you have yet to experience, or are uncomfortable to start with, seems like a normal response. But what happens when someone is effected so severely they can’t control these emotions? this is where CBD FOR ANXIETY DISORDERS plays a positive role.
I was first introduced to extreme anxiety by my friend Vinney, he was a purple heart veteran who lived through things beyond my conception, we worked together in construction of which he is very talented, unfortunately, in the area we worked was a very high traffic zone of tourist helicopters and deep canyons, when a copter made a turn in these valleys the blade noise echoed and could be heard for miles. These sounds sent Vinney into a different world for sometimes minutes or longer, this was before the term PTSD, he just called it shell shock, and tried to overcome it the best he could. Being somewhat of an organic person he never felt right with prescriptions. He worked best with a mild cannabis high, and was the first person to tell me about a strain that had almost no high (THC) and was under the impression it was a certain plant, a mutant from his garden, it turned into a prize for him…by cutting this plant he kept it going for years. It was a game-changer and his symptoms were curbed dramatically. As time on we heard of “Charlotte web ” and the research of CBD and other compounds of cannabis/ hemp.
Let s see where we stand today, according to the” NCBI” National Center for Biotechnology Information studying pre-clinical, human experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies, we have found strong evidence that supports CBD as a treatment for generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Studies are still going on at a rapid pace, most are in other countries like Israel where cannabis is looked upon in a very different light.
Studies and testing on anxiety with CBD that has shown the most obvious benefits are conducted with groups of people, some with low dose some with high and some with a placebo, All performed with public speaking,(something almost all would consider stressful with high anxiety). the research was quite positive for CBD, lets hope moving forward more FDA research will be welcomed here in the U, S.
In the U. S big pharma has been working on certain reactors and have a fair line of prescriptions available, the likes of Prozac, Zoloft seems to be doctors first choice, for more extreme cases tranquilizers like Xanax and Valium come into play, unfortunately, they can be highly addictive and their effects vary with each individual, the quote “practicing medicine” comes into play, and It could take some time to get dailed.
That being said if you experience the anxiety of any kind, do yourself and everyone else a favor, take the first step, ask for and get help, you are not alone 18% of all adults or 40 million people have a various form of anxiety.
CBD is not addictive and not habit-forming, it’s organic and comes in a huge variety of forms from gummie bears to water, vapes, tinctures, oral sprays to gel caps, CBD is being added to just about everything. Certain strains of cannabis are being developed that contain high CBD and low THC, that being said high THC is not something that goes well with anxiety. My best recommendations would start with 0% THC, work with a minimum dose of CBD use for a week or two takes notes to see how you feel, then slowly add more milligrams until you find your personal benchmark, remember CBD works in the background you might not even notice it’s there. CBD does not get you “high” so as I said takes notes. If you feel the need add a low dose of THC as CBD/THC works best in uni sent start with a low content of THC and build your tolerance until your content.
We all have different tolerances of any medications so take your time if you are on ANY prescriptions ask your doctor, it is important to all be on the same page with anxiety.
