Does CBD Help with 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 affect 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.

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.
