CBD For Anxiety
Anxiety and depression are pathologies that affect human beings in many aspects of life, including social life, productivity, and health.** Cannabidiol (CBD) is a constituent non-psychotomimetic of Cannabis sativa with great psychiatric potential, including uses as an antidepressant-like and anxiolytic-like compound. Studies using animal models of anxiety and involving healthy volunteers clearly suggest an anxiolytic-like effect of CBD. Moreover, CBD was shown to reduce anxiety in patients with social anxiety disorder**. There is also evidence that suggests that CBD oil may be an effective intervention for the ongoing management of anxiety disorders. Those with anxiety disorders who fail to derive benefit from traditional pharmacology and/or who are unable to tolerate standard pharmacological treatments may want to consider administration of CBD oil on an ongoing or “as-needed” basis. The dosage of CBD differs for each person but it’s best to start small and gradually increase until you experience the desired result. You may want to experiment with the dosage ranges and see what works best for you.
