Anxiety and Stress


Anxiety is one of the top things people take CBD for. CBD has been shown in a number of human and animal studies to lessen anxiety. The stress reducing effect appears to be related to activity in both the limbic and paralimbic brain areas. You can read a study about anxiety and CBD oil here

The researchers looked at different preclinical trials, as well as epidemiological studies and other experiments finding that in most cases CBD was able to act as a stand-in for anxiolytics medication,  without the drawbacks associated with using those drugs.

A study published in 2018, looked into treating patients suffering from PTSD with CBD can be accessed here.

The study found that CBD helped in emotional memory processing. Additionally, the study highlighted the fact that conventional medication that is used to treat PTSD is continuously limited, which makes incorporating CBD into the list of approved pharmacological treatments for PTSD a high priority.

Using CBD 

CBD can be very effective in treating chronic anxiety, treating temporary stress, and protecting the body from the physiological effects of both. Varieties high in linalool, such as our CBD Plus are effective in treating anxiety. You can use either CBD 800 or CBD Plus - there is no cut and dried answer over which one is better and some people prefer one over the other. Many people use both products - CBD Plus is great for day time use and CBD 800 is great for evening use. 

If you are using CBD 800, use 2-3 drops, 3 times per day. This is a guideline and you may need to tweak your dose in order to find what works for you. If you are using CBD Plus, start with one pump in the morning, and depending of the effect you may want to up the dose to two pumps. If you are using both, start with one dose of CBD Plus in the morning and microdose with CBD 800 at night. 

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to dosages, and you will need to monitor the effects. We suggest keeping a diary to do this, since you may need to tweak your dosages. Always start with a micro dosage to check sensitivity.
