One in thirteen people around the world live with an anxiety disorder, making them the most common mental health disorder worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). For those living with anxiety, finding a safe method for managing symptoms is a critical concern.
Anti-anxiety medication, such as Xanax, Valium, and Zoloft, may offer quick relief but can become addictive. These medications can also have some very worrisome side effects. With cannabidiol, better known as CBD it has captured the spotlight as an alternative or complementary treatment for anxiety without the side effects. There are many studies showing patients to have favorable results in their overall mood and mental wellbeing.
CBD tinctures and oils represent a quick, easy, and accurate way to consume CBD. Most tinctures contain CBD in an alcohol base, our CBD oil is in an organic coconut oil base. Tinctures and oils are taken using a dropper, which allows you to easily measure intake. The cannabinoid rapidly enters the bloodstream when taken sublingually—results can kick in as quickly as ten minutes and last up to three to four hours.
We also offer edibles, CBD can be added to almost every food under the sun. While super easy to consume in this form and often tasty, particularly as gummies—it may take an hour or more before results are felt. This is due to having to digest it first and allow it to enter the bloodstream. What’s more, the oral bioavailability of CBD can hinder CBD absorption—when you consume CBD orally, it has to pass through your gastrointestinal tract before it is metabolized by the liver. As a result, a limited quantity of CBD makes it into the circulatory system.
Smoking CBD flower provides an almost instantaneous method for enjoying its effects. Smoking sends the cannabinoid directly to the alveoli of the lungs, and from there, CBD molecules enter the bloodstream for rapid absorption. However, measuring your CBD intake can be tricky when you smoke, and the act of smoking itself can cause lung inflammation.
CBD is thought to promote health based on the way it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The goal of the endocannabinoid system is to maintain homeostasis. This means that it strives to achieve a level of stability related to basic processes that impact things such as mood, sleep, immune function, reproduction, stress, metabolism, appetite, and more. The way this system works is by endocannabinoids like CBD binding to specific receptors (namely, CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors) which are located throughout the body. When this occurs, it signals the nervous system to take the actions necessary to create a more stable level of health and wellness. CBD can also potentially provide relief for other mental conditions typically characterized by high levels of anxiety, such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). For example, research published in Current Opinion in Psychology notes that when individuals with PTSD took CBD, they had positive effects related to reduced insomnia and modulated fear. The CBD also served as an anti-depressive and anti-anxiety treatment remedy.
While both animal and human studies have connected CBD to the relief of anxiety.
