We've all had at some point in our lives a lump in our throat, a feeling of fear before an exam or an interview for a new job, difficulty sleeping...
When you feel you can't control losing control of your emotions, you may fear a chronic anxiety problem and it is then high time to act to return to some form of balance by lowering your stress response.
Medications available for chronic stress or anxiety are often categorized as .... potentially dangerous and potentially addictive, and may not provide a complete answer for some people who are looking to complete their treatment, or want to leave their treatment and turn to other alternatives such as cbd oil.
But deep down, is there any evidence that CBD works?
The growing popularity of Cbd as an anti-anxiety supplement is supported by extensive research. Studies are currently being launched to prove the effectiveness of Cbd against stress and anxiety.
To understand how Cbd works, let's delve into the science of how stress affects our bodies and brains.
Chronic anxiety disorders affect the daily lives of many people, causing both disruptions in our brain chemistry and physical reactions. We know that everyone's genetics have something to do with it. Small disturbances in our hormones or neurotransmitters can have a major impact on our response to stress. Environmental factors also influence our neurochemistry.
But let's be clear, stress is the major cause of anxiety. Chronic stress can force your brain to feel anxious. It wants you to remember so that you are better prepared to deal with stress in the future. Chronically high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol can have a devastating impact on our bodies. Stress also affects the chemistry of your brain. the secretion of stress hormone causes changes that will cause some areas of the brain to become hyperactive, while others will shrink or even atrophy. the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and their receptors will be disrupted.
Even if you take steps to reduce your stress, these changes may persist, leaving a negative impact on your body.
Studies on the properties of cannabidiol tend to show that it can act against anxiety by stimulating neurotransmitter systems and neuronal regeneration.
Our bodies naturally produce their own cannabinoids that are used to treat anxiety trhough our endocannabinoid system.
This very complex system, which researchers continue to study because it plays a crucial role in maintaining the balance of our body, can be disrupted under stress. Cannabidiol acts on the endocannabinoid system which helps us where anxiety and fears have accumulated.
Faced with the accumulation of various stresses that we encounter in our daily lives, it is sometimes very interesting to take the step towards more hollistic methods.
If you have medication for anxiety, if you are undergoing therapy, talk about it with your practitioner.
Cannabidiol can be considered as a supplement to your treatment.
