Find out about how CBD could help with Anxiety.
“We’ve all heard the saying, “stress kills.” It’s true!
Anxiety-related disorders affect a huge segment of our population—40 million adults (18%) in the United States age 18 and older. In response, Big Pharma has developed numerous drugs to treat anxiety-related disorders, from selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and Zoloft to tranquilizers (the most popular class being benzodiazepines such as Valium and Xanax).” Those also become more problematic. As drug abuse is a major issue in today’s day in age.
Brazilian researchers conducted a study for patients struggling with social anxiety. After consuming CBD, participants reported a significant decrease in anxiety. Researchers validated patients’ subjective reports by performing brain scans showing cerebral blood flow patterns consistent with an anti-anxiety effect. There are two successful tests right there.
In another study, researchers had patients suffering from Social Anxiety Disorder perform a simulated public speaking test; participants reported significantly less anxiety, findings supported by objective anxiety indicators like heart rate and blood pressure. Researchers concluded, CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort in their speech performance.
