Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure or heart palpitations. People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.
Essential oils such as lavender, chamomile, and bergamot can complement the CBD oil, as they have a sedative effect that calms nerves as well as uplifting aromas that can help improve mood, sleep, and reduce anxiety.
The ideal CBD dose for you usually depends primarily on your body weight, but it can also be influenced by other factors, such as your personal body chemistry, your age, and any other health conditions you have. Start with a low dose. Assess how you feel after 1 week of use. If required, adjust dosage weekly until you find your “sweet spot.”
Some of the most common medications to treat anxiety are benzodiazepines, which focus on enhancing the effect of GABA neurotransmitters in the brain. GABA works to inhibit brain cell activity. Studies have shown that CBD also acts directly with GABA receptors in a way that changes their shape and increases GABA’s effects.
