What is CBD oil, and how can it help with your anxiety?
Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from cannabis plants and can be used as an oil. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the most well-known cannabinoid that comes from cannabis plants, CBD oil does not produce a "high."
Researchers think that CBD interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our brains. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the central nervous system, while CB2 receptors are found in the peripheral nervous system. Low serotonin is often associated with anxiety, and CBD appears to affect serotonin levels in the brain, thereby offering relief from anxiety.
Research has shown that using CBD oil can be beneficial for people suffering from anxiety disorders. A study conducted in 2010 found that using cannabidiol reduced symptoms of anxiety in people diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. The results of this study showed that using cannabidiol helped people cope with feelings of anxiousness and even changed the way their brains responded to their anxiety.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, CBD has shown to reduce stress in rats, improving their heart rate, and lowering behavioral signs of anxiety. There have also been multiple studies done recently showing that CBD oil appears to have a positive effect on alleviating PTSD symptoms. These studies looked at CBD as a standalone treatment for PTSD and as a supplementary treatment to therapy sessions. In one study, researchers even found that CBD was useful in reducing a child's anxiety and helping her sleep. These results have suggested that CBD could prove to be increasingly helpful in reducing anxiety-provoked sleep disorder, and aid in the treatment of children with histories of trauma.
Because of all this research coming out, we at Caleaf & Kutz are confident that our products are beneficial in the treatment of anxiety where traditional anxiety medications may not be.
