Anxiety and Mental Health
Anxiety affects over 18% of the U.S adult population per year. That’s 40 million Americans suffering. Women are estimated to be twice as likely to be affected by anxiety disorders than men.
Anxiety comes in many forms, including general anxiety disorders, panic attacks, social or other phobias, and is closely linked with depression.
We’ve all experienced stress or anxiety in some form, and many live with it on a daily basis. The toll on our mental health can prevent some from experiencing life in their full potential.
If you or those close to you are very likely suffering from anxiety or panic disorders, you’ve seen the impact it can have on your daily life. Many patients turn to traditional anti-anxiety and antidepressants (such as benzodiazepines or SSRIs) with the goal of finding relief.
For many, it’s not working or the side effects of old-school medications are sometimes making them feel even worse.
That’s where CBD has come into the picture for many individuals. CBD has been found to provide relief for those suffering from anxiety, whether as a stand-alone treatment or as a supplementary therapy incorporated into their daily routines.
What is CBD?
CBD (or cannabidiol) has been evolving in the mainstream treatment market, demonstrating its value for those experiencing its benefits worldwide. Particularly in the US, use of CBD has skyrocketed in recent years following legalization.
CBD is derived from the hemp plant, which is related to the cannabis plant. CBD is not THC. CBD does not get you high and as long as the manufacturer adheres to development and testing standards, should not appear on a THC drug test.
CBD is believed to directly interact with our endocannabinoid systems, which exists naturally in humans and animals, thus providing therapeutic value in various ways.
Initial research demonstrates potential benefits from both oral consumption and topical use to treat anxiety and other mental health disorders, along with pain, seizure disorders, insomnia, and more. Evidence for the benefits of CBD continues to be discovered, and anecdotal evidence builds daily.
It’s recommended to develop a consistent, steady routine over time to maximize the therapeutic value of your CBD treatment.
