CBD Oil for Anxiety

Cannabis and its’ derivatives have been used as far back as 2000 BC to calm anxiety and stress. Anxiety, although common in everyday life, can become a dysfunctional disorder that includes multiple specific types:

  • Panic disorder: Symptoms include sweating, chest pain, palpitations and unfounded feelings of terror often occurring with no warning and without reason
  • Phobias: Fear of a specific object or situation that is incongruous to the object
  • Social anxiety disorder: The inability to deal with everyday social interactions
  • Generalized anxiety disorder: The most common of disorders, this disorder involves excessive worry and tension that is unprovoked

Generalized symptoms may include:

  • Problems sleeping
  • Cold or sweaty hands and/or feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart palpitations
  • Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness
  • An inability to be still and calm
  • Dry mouth
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Nausea
  • Muscle tension

As with other neurological disorders, the ability to “calm the brain” with CBD may be key in the treatment of anxiety in all its’ forms.
