What is anxiety? It’s general feelings of worry and your body’s totally natural response to stress- whether it’s stress in your day-to-day life or something much bigger, like an important speech or job interview. According to the Anxiety And Depression Association of America (ADAA), anxiety affects about 40 million adults in the U.S., and about 3.1% of the U.S. population have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). People who suffer from anxiety disorders have these feelings that last longer than six months, but only about 40% of those are actively receiving treatment (ADAA).
CBD & Anxiety
More and more people are introducing cannabidiol (CBD) into their diets and daily workouts to help alleviate stress. In fact, physiological symptoms, like heart rate and breathing pace, improved with CBD testing in studies. Individuals feel more relaxed and at ease, along with feeling relief from chronic pains such as backaches and headaches. The latest CBD trend is surpassing topical oils to relieve pain and is now helping your day-to-day functionality from your taste buds. CBD is now even available in easy-to-drink coffees and teas at popular grocery stores.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), studies with THC increased “psychotic symptoms and anxiety” in human test subjects, while CBD had an anti-depressant effect in clinical studies. Of course, CBD is still a new subject being increasingly researched by scientists, as cannabis remains highly regulated in the U.S. You can start to find more CBD products in health and wellness stores, as well as organic markets.
