Here’s how CBD battles anxiety

Anxiety is one of the worst disorders of the modern world, just because its symptoms significantly reduce patient’s quality of life. Since you’re reading this, you or someone you know is probably going through some tough times. I know we have anxiety is real and one I have suffered with for a long time, but now I have CBD oil to help me with this, and I am so glad I do.  My hope by you reading this is that it will help you or a loved one. 

When it comes to medicinal application of cannabis, there is an ever-constant debate of whether you should focus on THC or CBD rich strains when treating certain conditions.

When it comes to anxiety however, CBD seems to be much more helpful.

First of all, it does not produce psychoactive effects so you won’t get high out of your mind and even paranoid.

Second, it is superior to THC when it comes to medicinal application in just the sheer volume of diseases and conditions it helps with.

Finally, it regulates many physiological processes such as sleep, inflammation, appetite and tranquilization, all of which boosts life quality for anxiety sufferers.

Let’s check out the main 5 benefits of CBD for anxiety and depression.

CBD relieves physical symptoms of anxiety

Anxiety is not just in the mind — it also produces a wide variety of physical symptoms, all of which are extremely debilitating. Many people have reported CBD’s positive effects on physical symptoms of anxiety, ranging from life-improving to life-changing.
In fact, CBD:
Relaxes muscles and relieves tension
Relieves nausea and bowel problems caused by severe anxiety disorders
Relieves headaches and tingling
This is all very encouraging to read especially for those of you looking for a relief from that constant chest tightness that anxiety produces.

CBD reduces learned fears and helps with phobias

We are born with only two fears: fear of falling and fear of loud noises.

Every other fear?

We learn it. And this includes thousands of phobias that people are struggling with.
Someone would say “it’s all in the head” but sometimes you just can’t cope with a traumatic experience. In these cases, CBD will help immensely.

According to a report published in 2017 by the British Pharmacological Society, several studies have confirmed that CBD reduces learned fear response in ways that are relevant to patients suffering from phobias and PTSD.

As you might know, both phobias and PTSD are marked by fear-related memories, so it makes sense that cannabidiol relieves this particular range of symptoms.

One study in particular, goes into detail on how CBD relieves fear response. They stated that CBD helps in 3 ways:
It acutely decreases fear expression
It disrupts memory reconsolidation
It enhances extinction

All of these might sound too complicated to explain, but they all point out to this:
CBD can and will help with reducing the impact of learned fears, whether you are suffering from phobias, PTSD or other life-changing traumatic experiences.

CBD makes public speaking a walk in the park

There are many dimensions to anxiety disorders and the fear of public speaking is one of the most common ones.
You’ve probably been there yourself:
The limelight hits your face like a beacon of hopelessness and you suddenly feel there is a knot in your stomach. It doesn’t take long before you completely lose your grip with reality.

In moments like these, CBD is a life saver, as it relieves all symptoms of GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder), one of which is the fear of speaking in front of people.

A study done in 2010 explored this issue in more detail:

They took two groups — one was given placebo and the other was given a single dose (600 mg) of CBD oil.
About 1.5 hours later, they ran both groups through a public speaking simulation and noticed this:

“Pretreatment with CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort in their speech performance, and significantly decreased alert in their anticipatory speech.”
So to round this up:

If you’re suffering from social anxiety and you’re afraid of speaking in front of unknown people, take a dose of CBD oil 1.5-2 hours before your appearance.

CBD improves mood while relieving anxiety symptoms

The hard truth about most anxiety disorders is that they make you bummed out, even in your downtime.
Especially in your downtime.
CBD, when combined with THC, also has antidepressant properties, which regulate your emotional response and the general way of thinking.
There are two ways for that to happen:
When ingested, CBD activates 5-HT1A receptors. By doing so, it enables the brain to send more serotonin signals, thus reducing the anxiety and boosting your general mood.
Another way is by stimulating hippocampal neurogenesis — a process through which a person’s hippocampus basically regenerates. This is very important because people who suffer from depression and anxiety often have underdeveloped hippocampus.

CBD prevents nervous breakdowns and panic attacks

According to Mental Health Daily, CBD has the ability to completely reset the nervous system after a traumatic experience.
Let me explain:
Whenever we get that fight or flight feeling, our autonomic nervous system gets altered — the sympathetic branch becomes more active than parasympathetic.
When we administer CBD shortly before or after that traumatic event, our nervous system gets reset, which relieves current tension and prevents a full blown nervous breakdown.
This, coupled with CBD’s neuroprotective properties, ensures that both your nervous system, as well as hippocampus remain solid and healthy for a long time to come.
Bonus tip: you can use CBD oil for panic attacks, as well.

Is CBD the right choice for you then?

Regardless of your particular anxiety disorder, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that points in the direction of CBD as a valid treatment option.
And even though we explored just five benefits of CBD in this post, you can expect much more in real life. It all depends on your previous treatment, your condition and the mindset you have.

Whatever the case is, I have just one more thing to say:

CBD helps with Sensory Processing Disorder

A Testimony worth Reading! This just melts my heart reading how CBD is helping everyone ❤️
This is from Ceally in regards to her son Bodhi. I can so relate to this with my boys too they both have Sensory Processing Disorder along with their Autism
Get yours today: www.cbdwithlisa.com
 
My sons Testimony
This is Bodhi. He is now 5 years old. ❤️💚💙
He loves Play-Doh, Moon sand and plays Outside in the cold mud. Listens to Alternative Rock & Classic Music. Enjoys vintage video games such as PacMan and Super Mario.
I knew Bodhi was unique from birth but when he was 6 months old is when I had my first clue. He had his first MELTDOWN at the city fair.
We couldn’t calm him down. Everything that normally worked, such as feeding him, holding him, changing his diaper, etc! Nothing… until we walked into a quite room then it immediately made him go silent!
😳
From that day forwarded I picked up environmental triggers that would make him spin out of control.
Crowds, loud noises, unfamiliar spaces, smells, sounds that he would immediately shut down. I felt discouraged. Then little things like texture of food, he didn’t like baby food and clothes even would make him have a meltdown!
Every single pre school and daycare would kick him out because of him not being social with kids, refusing to transition, becoming physical even when he didn’t know how to use his words to communicate. He plays by himself often and focuses very hard on one thing at time!
We have had him evaluated twice by the state and I have asked his pediatrician for suggestions. All of them have came back that he IS NOT Autistic or on the Spectrum. That he would develop at his own pace and to continue to work with him.
😕 well than…that gives me no answers
In my heart I knew he is unique. He processes this world in his own way, and it’s causing him anxiety and pain 😣😰😭 you have no idea how painful it is to see your child struggle with normal day to day things. Putting on clothes was like pulling teeth! Teachers treating him like he was to difficult to handle to be apart of group, excluding him from activities or social events because “he cant handle it” 😓
Then a friend of mine who I have been socializing with on Facebook immediately picked up on Bodhi signs. I was explaining to her about the struggles I have encountered with him.
She stopped me and said “Sensory Processing Disorder” she then told me about her daughter and her are to. She showed me online support groups and lots of information on the subject!
😶😶😶😶😶I sat there reading signs and cues and kept going in my head “THATS MY SON!” 🙄
*sign of relief* 😌
The rest is really just tedious details to where we are now!
Wow! So much support and information is out there about this! I am so thankful too!
However, after doing some research on the causes of SPD and the emerging theory that it is the result of too many synapses firing in the brain I decided to try my best to make him comfortable. Due to my background in Holistic Nutrition and owning a Health Food Company Organic Meal Prep LLC; I wanted to try something Natural and what I kept hearing other groups say about CBD oil.
We tried couple brands and one finally had everything right. Quality, price, purity(batch testing) & made here in American 🇺🇸 plus they were 30 Day Money Back Guarantee so essentially it was risk free. I knew if we tried it and didn’t like it we could return it!
I am here to tell you the results are just astounding.
It has been a miracle. Hallelujah 🙏🏽
He has been able to start vocalizing his concerns at school, using his words 🗣. Textures are becoming something fun for him to explore! He no longer fights me on putting socks on! Or PANTS! He wears Jeans😍
We noticed the results the first time we gave it to him.. it was remarkable.
We were getting lots of eye contact.. 😍he sat at the dinner table for the whole dinner.. that was a first! He has continued to use his words instead of thrashing and having meltdowns when he is overly stimulated!
I could go on for days where all the improvements are happening! It has been giving him a quality of life that I have always dreamed for my boy! 🤧
Anyhow.. I am rambling now, and getting emotional.
 
Thanks for reading  I’m still learning and Bodhi is too! 💕 but this has been life changing for him and I’m a proud mama 😍

My Updated Hempworx oil review

So many have asked me what #CBD oil has done for me, so this is my OWN testimony With what  Hempworx CBD oil and the sprays have done for our family 

Most of you know that I suffer with over all chronic pain, and in my neck due to surgery. I have Fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, degenerative disk disease, restless leg, depression, anxiety, diabetes, High BP and cholesterol. WELL get THIS, I have NOT taken any of my break through narcotics since I have been on the  CBD oil .

I started out with the 500 mg and just got the 750 mg to try and I do notice a huge difference with my pain.  The 500 mg works very good I took it most the summer but for someone who have serve chronic pain I would highly recommend the 750 mg

Barry’s Psoriasis is gone since he started taking CBD and he is growing his hair out, he is so excited because he can brush his hair now   

Tyler and Travis are using the Brain Spray for their cognitive functions – Travis and Tyler both have ADHD and Autism.

Brandon has severe depression and anxiety and is getting relief with our CBD Oil.

We all use the Sleep spray and have never slept better  I sleep like a baby and even if I wake up to go to the bathroom I fall right back asleep again. Barry keeps a bottle beside him on his night stand and when he wakes up he takes 2 squirts and falls right back to sleep, a little trick he has learned and I have recommended this to everyone who has issues falling back asleep. We only use 4 squirts of the spray and we find thats all we need 🙂 recommended is 6. and it will last you over a month 🙂  

HempWorx CBD Oil is helping so many people feel better and gain back their life. One bottle of our CBD oil will last
And I can honestly say that there was NO way I could have worked over the summer without it.  Check it out on my website at http://www.HempWorx.com/lisak73

CBD and Anxiety and how it can help you!

How Cannabidiol (CBD) Works for Treating Anxiety

While we don’t normally think of anxiety as desirable, it’s actually a critical adaptive response that can help us cope with threats to our (or a loved one’s) safety and welfare. These responses help us recognize and avert potential threats; they can also help motivate us to take action to better our situation (work harder, pay bills, improve relationships, etc.). However, when we don’t manage these natural responses effectively, they can become maladaptive and impact our work and relationships. This can lead to clinically diagnosable anxiety-related disorders. 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).

While these drugs can be effective for many patients, some don’t respond favorably. Certain patients don’t see much improvement, or they can’t tolerate the side effects. Moreover, tranquilizers like Valium and Xanax can be highly addictive. Clearly, alternative treatments are warranted. Could cannabidiol (CBD), the most prominent non-psychoactive constituent in cannabis, provide a viable alternative for currently available anxiety medications? Quite possibly!
In recent years, CBD has generated a tremendous amount of interest among consumers, clinicians, and scientists. Why? Not only does evidence suggest CBD counteracts many of THC’s adverse effects, but numerous animal studies and accumulating evidence from human experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. Administered acutely (“as needed”), it appears safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial to treat a number of anxiety-related disorders, including:

  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Social phobia
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Mild to moderate depression

How Does CBD Work?

CBD exerts several actions in the brain that explain why it could be effective in treating anxiety. Before we dive in, it’s important to note that most research describing how CBD works is preclinical and based on animal studies. As the saying goes, “mice are not men” — and, results from animal studies don’t always neatly transfer to human therapies. However, preclinical studies provide insights that move us in the right direction:
5-HT1A agonist: 5-HT1A is a subtype of the serotonin receptor, which is important because anxiety and depression can sometimes be treated with medications that target the serotonin system. This is why drug companies developed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Prozac and Zoloft. SSRIs work by blocking reabsorption of serotonin in the brain, which increases availability of serotonin in the synaptic space. This helps brain cells transmit more serotonin signals, which can reduce anxiety and boost mood in certain cases (although the full biological basis for this is more complicated and not fully understood).
Similar to SSRIs, CBD may boost signaling through serotonin receptors. In an animal study, Spanish researchers found that CBD enhances 5-HT1A transmission and may affect serotonin faster than SSRIs. Researchers noted:
“The fast onset of antidepressant action of CBD and the simultaneous anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect would solve some of the main limitations of current antidepressant therapies.”

Hippocampal neurogenesis: The hippocampus is a major brain area, and plays a critical role in a variety of brain functions. It’s most famous for its role in memory formation and cognition. Brain scans of patients suffering from depression or anxiety often show a smaller hippocampus, and successful treatment of depression is associated with the birth of new neurons (neurogenesis) in the hippocampus..
An animal study using mice found repeated administration of CBD may help the hippocampus regenerate neurons, which could be useful for treating anxiety or depression. Research shows both SSRIs and CBD may promote neurogenesis. This is significant, because evidence suggests that severely impaired neuronal plasticity may influence suicidal behavior. Future research comparing CBD and SSRIs effect on neurogenesis could open up promising new avenues in how we understand depression and how to most effectively treat it.
