CBD for Anxiety

Anxiety:
Do you or any of your loved ones struggle with anxiety, at any level? Calyx Wellness has developed an array of CBD products aimed to help you and your loved ones deal with anxiety, in its many forms, on a daily basis.

How Can CBD Help?
Cannabidiol has the ability to connect to the neurotransmitters in our brain, which help regulate chemical constituents like dopamine, serotonin and glutamate. Controlling our reward and pleasure centers, along with our emotional responses, is Dopamine. Our Serotonin controls the balance of our mood, social behaviour, sleep, memory, happiness and our overall wellbeing. CBD helps to promote stability between all of these elements, which affect our personality on a daily basis.

A clinical study was conducted taking a look at how various doses of CBD can effect several mental and emotional states in humans. Some of the specific mental and emotional states studied include: Anxiety, Social Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression and Insomnia.

CBD for anxiety

A study, published in the Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, showed that “CDB significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort in their speech performance.” Another study conducted on the effects of CBD, published in the Journal of the Brazilian Psychiatric Association, stated “One of the first effects of CBD to be observed was its sedative action…sleep-inducing properties and increase in total sleep were described. CBD significantly increased the number of subjects that slept for seven or more hours.” The same study also concluded that “Considering that the anxiolytic properties of CBD can be mediated by the activation of 5-HT1A receptors that this modulation can induce antidepressant effects.”

What Does This All Mean?
What we have learned is that our bodies have a natural ability to receive and interact with CBD. What we are continuing to discover is the positive ways our bodies are able to interact with CBD and the effects that these interactions have.

When it comes to those who suffer from Anxiety, in its many forms, we continuously see that our bodies react positively to CBD treatment. Those who use a CBD treatment, for their anxiety, see a positive effect on their mental and emotional state. This can help lead to a better, happier, day-to-day existence and keep your mind and body in balance.

Medical CBD – Project CBD

Scientific research has shown CBD may be therapeutic for many conditions. In compiling a list of conditions that CBD may help, we examined hundreds of peer-reviewed articles in scientific journals. Relevant reports have been culled primarily from PubMed, online service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. To these highly technical reports, we have added articles from O’Shaughnessy’s and a few stories from general interest publications.

A Closer look at CBD – Jewish News Service

One of the most revolutionary social movements in the past decade has been the growing acceptance of the consumption of marijuana in Western society, including the substance’s legalization in U.S. states such as Colorado and Washington. While marijuana is illegal for general use in Israel, the Jewish state is considered to be one of the world’s most forward-thinking countries when it comes to medical marijuana, with scientists and researchers flocking there to learn more about the benefits of the drug.

Why You Might Want To Replace Your Xanax Habit With A Little Weed – The Coveteur

The year is 2017. Our phones are a full-on extension of our limbs, and, well, Donald Trump is the President. This equation means my daily free-floating, low-level anxiety isn’t so much cause for alarm as much as it is stating the obvious. To me, anxiety has become a bit of a “chicken or egg” thing: Was I always this anxious, and am I just now letting others in on it; or, in declaring it, does anxiety become more of a self-fulfilling prophecy?
