For many years, we have only had a few options for treating a condition like chronic anxiety.
Our only choices were to take prescription medications that have a host of side effects and alter our state of consciousness. When dealing with chronic anxiety, we must first think about how we want to relieve these symptoms that affect our lives. One way that is being researched extensively is cannabidiol.
CBD is a naturally occurring compound that is found in the hemp plant. It interacts with the CB1 receptors of the endocannabinoid system that is located in our brains. The CB1 receptor is known to regulate the anxiety and fear response that we exhibit. CBD is proven lower levels of anxiety without the dreaded side effects of prescription medications. Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive and will not cause drowsiness that are notorious with pharmaceuticals. The endocannabinoid system was only discovered in 1992, so the research that is being conducted is revolutionary and is proving to be immensely powerful.
Anxiety can be exasperated by other health issues as well. Pain is often a cause of much anxiety if not treated and CBD shows huge reduction on the pain scale in turn reducing anxiety levels. Panic disorders are also showing positive results in treatment with cannabidiol. This would make perfect sense when thinking about the relationship between anxiety and panic disorders.
Understanding the cause and effect will also help as a preventative measure as well as reducing pain and anxiety. The goal for us as human beings is to live symbiotically with our surroundings. Right at our fingertips is the perfect aid for many of the ailments so common in today’s stressful environment. Once we are free of the mystery that surrounds the amazing system, we will finally begin to heal through knowledge and the science behind it.
