Bills, work, children, traffic, hurricanes, terrorism, with everything going on in the world today, its all too easy to become stressed out. Stress is a normal response that your body uses to let you know something is wrong. However, prolonged levels of heightened stress are very damaging to your body. Stress can lead to physical problems including headaches, obesity, upset stomach, high blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases. Not to mention the psychological issues that can arise from continuous stress, such as depression and anxiety.
There are many natural healthy ways to manage stress, some of which we have looked at in the past. This time however, we are going to focus on using CBD for stress management.
A number of research studies have shown promising signs that cannabidiol (CBD) oil may help relieve anxiety. The exact way CBD effects the receptors in the brain is still being understood. However, it’s thought that it alters serotonin signals. Serotonin is one of your body’s chemicals and plays a role in your mental health. Low serotonin levels are common in depression. Low serotonin can also cause anxiety.
The studies that have looked at CBD as a treatment for stress/anxiety have found that not only does it help with psychological symptoms, but also physical (elevated heart rate, headaches etc.) Studies have also shown some benefits for other forms of anxiety, such as social anxiety disorder (SAD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
One of the best things about this is that CBD doesn’t have the same side effects that come from traditional anxiolytics and SSRIs, which are usually used for the treatment of anxiety. We obviously are not deficient in Xanax, Clonazepam (Klonopin, Diazepam (valium) or Lorazapam (Ativan). These mediations have a longer list of side effects then benefits so they do not cure the anxiety but rather just mask the symptom. CBD is a bio-natural chemical that the body actually needs and is neuro-enhancing not neuro degenerating. Getting to the root cause of your anxiety is the way to go.
