I have been taking CBD oil for a little over a month now, and I have seen a drastic reduction in my anxiety levels. Panic attacks are few and far between now, and that number is becoming even fewer the longer my therapy proceeds.
According to AnxietySocialnet.com,
“Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the cannabis compound that has found to have significant benefits for treating people with anxiety. CBD-rich cannabis can be treated for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and anti-spasm affects. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” or “high,” and can actually counteract the anxiety-driven tendencies of THC. CBD is one 85 natural compounds found in cannabis. It is a major element, making up 40 percent of the plant’s extract and has a wider medical benefit than THC.
The other popular compound to treat medical conditions is tetrahydrocannibinol, or THC, and can be used to relax muscles, reduce inflammation, reduce seizures stimulate appetite, lower blood pressure and is an anti-depressant.” (Read More)
As far as Medical Marijuana and anxiety, there are benefits there as well.
“Medical marijuana is a more effective treatment for anxiety than other conventional medicines. Marijuana begins to relieve symptoms almost immediately. It can be used to reduce anxiety in acute situations and does not require regular dosing. Marijuana does not have unwanted side-effects and leaves the system clean without any hangover feeling.
Marijuana is effective in treating anxiety and depression and can be used in conjunction with other therapies to improve results. By suppressing anxiety and racing or anxious thoughts, marijuana also promotes clearer thinking. Making decisions is easier when marijuana is used to reduce anxiety. Other medicines used for anxiety and depression tend to cloud judgment or slow thought and reaction times.” (Read More)
No more night terrors, no more sudden bouts of anxiety that hit me like a wave crashing on a rocky reef. CBD oil has helped my PTSD so tremendously that I never thought it was possible. While research needs to be conducted on more regular basis with the relationship of cannabidiol and anxiety, the future, for me at least; seems so much better with CBD oil in my life.
