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!
How to Use CBD Oil Drops Tincture to Soothe Anxiety
Our most popular product among our customers who have anxiety is our CBD Oil Drops Tincture. You can take the tincture by filling the oil dropper, releasing the oil under your tongue and letting it dissolve. Taking it this way means that the CBD will go straight into your bloodstream. If you swallowed the drops you would lose some of the CBD goodness in your digestive system.
When people take the tincture under their tongues, they can feel better within minutes. And, you can imagine, if you were feeling some acute anxiety and wanted fast relief, a tincture would be the way to go!
Now, you’re probably wondering how much CBD oil to take. One dropper full? Two?
Unfortunately, the answer is not super straightforward. Dosing with CBD Oil is much more individual than just taking two ibuprofen for a headache.
The best way to start is to use one dropper fill under your tongue. Wait about 20 minutes and see how you feel. If you’re still feeling anxiety, then feel free to take more CBD oil. If you’re anxiety is better, then you’ve found your sweet spot. But if you feel groggy or have trouble functioning normally, then you’ll want to take less next time.
It’s totally ok to start with a small amount of oil and work your way up to find your sweet spot. The best way to figure out the correct amount is to start small and pay attention to how your body is feeling.
You can use CBD Oil Drops Tincture when you’re in the midst of uncomfortable anxiety and it will help you calm down. You can also use it every day to preemptively balance and soothe your system so that you don’t get so wound up with anxiety in the first place.
