Can CBD Help with Anxiety?

If you’ve ever had chronic anxiety, then you know it’s a very unpleasant experience that can have a negative ripple effect into every area of your life. So many people in our modern culture suffer from high levels of anxiety that we’re almost starting to accept it as normal. But it doesn’t have to be this way! You weren’t made to feel stressed, tense and ready for fight or flight at every moment of every day. 

What Is Anxiety and How Does It Affect the Body?

Anxiety is a feeling of nervousness, fear or stress. Occasional anxiety is normal for everyone. However, the problem begins when this is a chronic state of being and the anxiety goes from occasional to an everyday feeling.

 

Anxiety can come in many different forms and in fact has many names.

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Panic Attacks
  • Social Phobias
  • General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

 

Anxiety is very taxing on your body and nervous system. So, many people with anxiety will experience insomnia, migraines, chronic pain, headaches, fatigue and depression.

 

If you have anxiety and tell your doctor about it, then she may prescribe something for you. It’s possible that this medication will help. However, there are lots of documented side effects to the prescription drugs that are used to treat anxiety. So we at TerraGold Plus want to offer you another way to feel better.

 

How CBD Calms Anxiety

Your body has an endocannabinoid system (ECS) that’s responsible for balancing your nervous system and brain. When you’re feeling constant anxiety and stress, your ECS is under a lot of pressure and can’t perform the way it should.

 

CBD is a chemical compound found in hemp plants. It works with your body’s ECS to strengthen it and bring it back into balance. So, when you have stress and anxiety, your body can more easily handle it and doesn’t have to escalate into acute anxiety or panic attacks.

 

As you consume CBD consistently, your ECS gets more balanced, which means your whole body gets more balanced. This not only helps with anxiety but also other symptoms that may go along with it. CBD can assist with sleeping better, alleviating chronic pain, soothing headaches, managing depression and more.

 

If you use CBD consistently, you may notice that your anxiety and related symptoms all start to improve!
