Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in America. One three adults in the US deal with anxiety at some time in their lives, if not battle it daily.
The usual symptoms of anxiety are panic, nervousness, irrational fears, paranoia, difficulty concentrating, sweating and fatigue. The typical treatments for anxiety disorders involve various behavioral and cognitive therapies. But in recent years, the explosion of interest and popularity of CBD (cannabidiol) has led to some interesting findings about how CBD can be used to treat a variety of illnesses and disorders, including anxiety.
Because CBD does not induce a “high” like THC – a compound found in marijuana – does, it has been observed to create beneficial effects for your health.
Scientists have been able to narrow down some of the medical uses of CBD including helping to treat nausea, headaches and even reduce some cancers. Another one of the main health benefits is the calming feeling CBD creates. Studies have shown the relaxing nature of CBD has become useful for those suffering from various types of anxiety and sleep disorders.
Studies from the National Center for Biotechnology Information have shown positive values for CBD in disorders such as anxiety. Clinical tests are ongoing, but the recent upswing in scientific and medical publications have shown CBD to have benefits for reducing symptoms and being well-tolerated in most cases.
The versatility of administering CBD is also helping to increase its popularity among anxiety sufferers. It does not need to be smoked, rather CBD oil (the most common form) can be ingested via droplets, sprays or capsules, where it’s calming nature takes effect quickly. This could be especially useful during the onset of an anxiety or panic attack.
