Deli Hemp takes you through the benefits of CBD on anxiety.

Anxiety is a natural adaptive response. It responds to a state of alert that allows us to mobilize our resources to deal with a threat or avoid danger. Consequently, anxiety manifests itself as a feeling or sense of generalized fear.

It becomes pathological and a source of suffering when this anxiety becomes chronic and/or when it occurs outside a distressing situation.

When anxiety persists without any particular event, we speak of anxiety disorders, which unfortunately affect an ever-growing population. Women are the most preoccupied by anxiety disorders, especially between the ages of 25 and 44.

Today, CBD flower and sublingual oil are emerging as an excellent natural alternative for anxiety.

The beneficial effects of CBD oil on the brain

In France, you can find CBD in tobacconists, specialist stores and, of course, online. How does this molecule affect the body?

The endocannabinoid system

We're all familiar with the nervous and immune systems, or at least their main functions. But have you ever heard of the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system, or ECS, discovered almost 30 years ago, is a communication system made up of receptors in our brain and immune system.

These receptors are activated by cannabinoids, molecules present in CBD but also naturally in the body. Cannabinoids play a crucial role in cellular homeostasis, i.e. the balance between cells, enabling you to maintain important functions such as body temperature, blood sugar levels, heart rate, weight, etc.

CBD and anxiety: scientists agree

A number of studies are looking at the effect of CBD on anxiety.

A recent Brazilian study showed that CBD acts directly on the receptors for serotonin, the neurotransmitter that regulates mood and is linked to a state of well-being when present at balanced levels. This is the mechanism of action involved in the use of certain anxiolytics.

Other studies have added to the evidence that CBD does indeed have positive effects on anxiety, but also on stress, sleep and depression. And this is what many users are testifying.

How do I dose my CBD oil?

The effectiveness of CBD varies greatly from one individual to another. Dosage will therefore depend not only on the anxiety disorder itself, i.e. how long it has been present and how intense it is, but also on the individual's weight.

People who have never taken CBD oil are advised to start with low doses. In general, three doses of five to ten drops of 5 or 10% CBD oil per day are suggested, directly under the tongue.
