Anxiety is probably the most common mental affliction people deal with. Anxiety related issues affect 20% of the population. In the United States alone thats 40 million people! Who can blame them? The world grows ever more competitive and stressful. All sorts of issues cause anxiety for us these days. Whether it’s the tumultuous news, a high stress job, new career, marriage, kids, or school it’s quite easy to fall into the anxiety trap.
When faced with anxiety the common way to treat it in the past was to get prescription medications such as SSRIs or benzodiazepines. While beneficial for some, these medications can have disastrous consequences and side effects. The problem with many of them is that the user becomes dependent upon them and suddenly stopping the drugs could be quite harmful if not fatal.
If its not prescription drugs, many anxiety sufferers resort to more drastic measures such as alcohol or illegal drugs.
Fortunately, with the arrival and acceptance of hemp related products, specifically CBD (cannabidiol) a natural solution is here for our anxiety woes. Numerous research studies have been done that show the beneficial effect CBD has in the treatment of anxiety and other anxiety related disorders such as:
- Panic disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Social phobia
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
- Mild to moderate depression
CBD is thought to treat anxiety in several ways. The most notable is acting as a 5HT1A receptor agonist. This 5HT1A is a serotonin receptor and many anti-anxiety/depression drugs target this receptor to relieve symptoms. CBD works similarly to SSRIs in that it may help boost serotonin. Research has shown that CBD acts at enhancing serotonin transmission in the 5HT1A receptor. Another mechanism of action is in the hippocampal region. The hippocampus is a region of the brain important to memories and cognition. People with anxiety or depression have noticeably smaller hippocampal regions. Animal studies have shown that CBD may help in regenerating neurons in this region.
So we know the particular biological mechanism of action but how about in real world situations. A number of other studies have been conducted that show a marked decrease in anxiety after using CBD. In a Brazilian research study people with strong social anxiety showed great improvement after given CBD. Brain scans showing blood flow affirmed the results. In another study, people with social anxiety performed a public speaking test and performed much better than they normally would.
The evidence so far is pretty clear. If you’re looking for an all-natural way to mitigate anxiety, without any harmful side effects, than give CBD a try.
