Can you use CBD for anxiety?

Anxiety is a distressing emotion. It is also a normal defense response.  Feelings of anxiousness help to warn people of risks. On the other hand, symptoms might change. They can also progress into a disorder. You may feel as if you have no control. 

Effective methods may be addressed holistically by using CBD for anxiety. Consequently, you may improve your mental health with fewer risks than prescriptions.

Cannabis and hemp are now considered to be lawful in many countries and states. However, it is essential to familiarize yourself with the regulations of your own area.

How CBD Can Help


Cannabis produces cannabidiol (CBD).  Cannabidiol is not derived just from cannabis. Hemp is also a key component. The studies available showcase the benefits, effects, and dosage requirements. To distinguish between THC and CBD, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) intoxicates you and has a psychoactive effect. However, CBD does not.  

Cannabidiol has become well-known as holistic and alternative medicine. Research shows that it can promote balance and well-being. Finding and understanding safe methods where anxiety can be helped with CBD has been researched abundantly. Still, consultation with a doctor is advised before using CBD for anxiety, or anything else. This is especially important if prescription medication is being used, or if you have a medical condition.


Forms of Consumption


It’s worth noting that there are pros and cons to each method of administration. As well, some tend to be more effective than others. Full-spectrum oils have various compounds. On the other hand, CBD isolates only contain cannabidiol. Finally, broad-spectrum oil contains all combinations except THC oil.

Here are a few things to know about the different forms of this plant-based remedy. The importance of making your decisions based on your needs and wants will assist you in deciding the correct potency and type you choose. 

  • Vape Oil is easy to utilize. However, it should be noted that there are safety risks in this form. Adverse reactions may be caused by the chemicals used. Additionally, a discovery was made between a possibly lethal lung condition and vaping called VAPI/EVALI.
  • Tinctures are alcohol-based extracts. They also include other ingredients alongside them. These are used to make liquids that you ingest orally. 
  • Edibles are infused with CBD made for consumption. Gummies are the most popular form of edibles.
    • Here is a little fun fact. My mom once made pot brownies. Granted, that is not the same thing but it is still an interesting tidbit of info. She did it simply because she was curious as to what all the hype was.
  • Capsules are taken in a pill-like form. Capsules are filled with oil and taken orally. 
  • Topical Ointments are used in beauty products. Moisturizers and cleansers are also very popular CBD products. Topicals can be applied to the skin and hair. 
Benefits, Effects & Dosage


The impact on people has complex and intricate effects on the receptors found within the body and brain. Various diseases and conditions have the potential to benefit from the use of CBD.  

It’s essential to research and understand what you wish to use and the dosage that is required. This is especially true if you want to use it as a health aid. The most commonly recommended dosage of CBD for anxiety is 300-600 mg. However, it is important to do your due diligence and figure out what dosage is best for you.

CBD for overall balance and well-being is an interesting organic option for stress relief. 

As mentioned, do your research on this particular form of care. As well, fully research any brand that you are considering.
