CBD Oil And Anxiety


We witness that having anxiety is a serious issues for some individuals in this day and age.

Within the world, dealing with anxiety can be very tough. There are symptoms of anxiety which can lead to a decrease in overall wellbeing. Some of the symptoms include, worrying much more often, impaired concentration, difficulty in sleeping and increased muscle aches and soreness. The NHS (National Health Service) states anxiety is affecting around 1 in 6 people!

To treat the society against anxiety, there are anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax and Zoloft. Benzodiazepines (used to treat anxiety) in fact are the very same medications that have added to an expansion of overdosing deaths.

There is currently a more secure approach to lessen anxiety side effects without placing your life at serious risk - CBD. Many clients at CBDextracts trust our product for this common anxiety problem!

What is CBD?

CBD - also known as Cannabidiol is one of 113 different cannabinoid compounds that make up the cannabis plant naturally. CBD is a component of the cannabis plant that has significant therapeutic properties but does not intoxicate you - does not give you the "high" that consuming marijuana would normally give you. This is because CBD oil does not contain the other component of the cannabis plant known as THC. This is the component that makes you feel "high" and has several negative effects such as depression, nausea, and paranoia.

Two common types of cannabis plants are Marijuana and Hemp. One of the main difference between the two plants is Marijuana (Cannabis Indica) intoxicates you whereas Hemp (Cannabis Sativa) does not.

THC and CBD are the two main components of the cannabis plant. The oil retrieved from Marijuana plants are almost loaded with THC and is illegal to buy or sell unless for medical purposes that fall within the law. The oil retrieved from the hemp on the other hand has hardly any THC (less than 0.2%), what it lacks in THC it makes up for higher amounts of CBD. CBD has the relaxing effects and health benefits of marijuana without the disruption to your mental or physical capacity.


CBD: How It Works for Anxiety

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a system that produces its own set of cannabinoids. Several different neurotransmitters and receptors spread throughout the body in the ECS to to regulate and balance many processes in the body. CBD does not bind to the receptors within the ECS system, it works on the enzymes that are responsible for re-uptaking the endocannabinoids after they have been used. CBD gives the body access to more of its own endocannabinoids, these endocannabinoids allow the ECS to carry out its functions with more ease. By improving the ECS, all systems of the body experience an increase in their function in overall health and wellness.





Despite the fact that anxiety can be brought about by various triggers, anxiety causes an imbalance in the body. The ECS is designed to deal with this issue. Anxiety triggers your flight-or-fight (sympathetic nervous system) stress response and release a flood of chemicals and hormones, like adrenaline, into your system. This in turn this increases your pulse and breathing rate, so your brain can get more oxygen. This prepares you to respond appropriately to an intense situation.

For instance, you are doing your job and a circumstance emerges of which you automatically feel uncomfortable and under pressure. Your mind action will react as needs be. Your body will at that point release a specific amount of cortisol (stress hormone), which depends on how your body reacts, and how you feel at that uncomfortable time.

When in a fight or flight response - there is a normal expectation for the circumstance to end. On the off chance that this expectation and discomfort are intensely serious, your body will release another round of cortisol and the anxiety will begin to develop about the specific circumstance. This can lead to mental issues if unregulated.

CBD can help manage anxiety while working with the ECS.

For one, CBD can activate the serotonin receptor. CBD mimics natural serotonin in its ability to bind to some of the same receptors. Especially the 5HT 1A receptor to improve the mood, and to reduce anxiety and depression!

CBD works similar to serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SSRIs like Zoloft, they stop reabsorption of Serotonin in the brain making sure that there is more present in the synaptic space. As mentioned above it also increases 5HT 1A transmission and effects serotonin faster than SSRIs. This is one of the reasons why CBD based products have the potential to overcome the limitation of currently prescribed anti-anxiety medication therapies. Furthermore, its also been found that repetitive CBD usage allows the hippocampus in the brain to regenerate neurons. CBD helps with neurogenesis allowing patients to successfully cope with anxiety, discomfort while speaking and also with cognitive impairment.


CBD Oil And Disorders

CBD can control or limit various different disorders including:

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):

CBD claims to reduce learned fear response in ways that are relevant to patients with phobias and PTSD.
This condition influences individuals who have experienced mind blowing events. The individuals who experience PTSD may encounter mood swings, stress, uneasiness, often getting scared, and other negative symptoms related to traumatic experiences.

General Anxiety Disorder (GAD):

This is a condition where some people experience levels of anxiety consistently, including stress, and an increase in heart rate. As explained above, this is to do with how CBD influences serotonin receptors, and can help limit/control many disorders.

Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD):

This sort of anxiety is brought by social associations. It can have a negative effect on a person's ability to associate and socialise in large groups. 

Fear of public speaking is quite a common fear in the society today. CBD has the capacity of reducing cognitive impairment, discomfort and anticipation in these situations.

Panic Disorder (PD):

When CBD is administered, it levels and resets the nervous system, it relieves the current tension. That prevents nervous breakdowns and panic attacks after traumatic events.
Symptoms of panic disorder include feeling anxious and having sudden panic attacks.
