There are some natural remedies available for anxiety. CBD is at the top of the list for an effective natural remedy for anxiety.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorders in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States alone from ages 18 and older which is roughly 18% of the population.
Not only does anxiety affect our mental health but it greatly affects the central nervous system. So it has an impact on our physiological body as it activates a fight or flight (survival mode) response. This puts a great deal of stress on the body and the first thing that does is weaken our immune system. This is an important fact to understand, because now more than ever, we need to keep our immune system strong so it can do its job of keeping pathogens and viruses at bay. If we can support our nervous system then everything else in our body will function better.
There are some natural remedies available for anxiety that are very effective. It is always a good idea to keep a couple of “go to” remedies in your arsenal so that you can be better equipped when the feeling of anxiety strikes. That way you can have the tools readily available to intercept the anxiety before it gets out of control. CBD is at the top of the list for an effective natural remedy for anxiety.
There is a great deal of research on CBD for anxiety and it’s effectiveness. CBD greatly reduces anxiety by way of calming the central nervous system. The CBD receptors are located all along the central nervous system. When you take CBD it acts as a lock and key to switch on the parasympathetic response (relaxation response). It has an almost immediate effect for calming and easing anxiety.
The benefit of taking CBD orally under the tongue and holding it for about 60 seconds before swallowing is that it allows it to bypass digestion and become rapidly absorbed directly into the bloodstream for a quick delivery and faster effect. This is what it means to take it sublingually, a common term these days.
The reason why we love CBD Oil for treating anxiety, is because it doesn’t have any long term side effects like most medications have. CBD is also well known for its pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also beneficial for many neurological disorders like depression, Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. CBD has been known to curb addictions to things like sugar, smoking and other harmful behaviors.
CBD can be taken for anxiety anytime of day and by anyone of all ages. Here, at Chiki Buttah, we have 2 types of CBD:
Our Pure CBD is THC-free. This CBD is simply isolated CBD without any other cannabinoids present. We offer this for anyone whose employment requires testing for any prohibited THC. Ours has been lab tested and certified to never have any THC at all. Also, this is what is recommended for kids and pets to take.
This CBD has the legal trace amount of THC at 0.3%. There is a full range of cannabinoids present in the hemp plant and that is referred to as “full spectrum”. There is a term called the entourage effect, where each cannabinoid enhances the healing qualities of each other, magnifying the overall effect. For some, this can be more effective.
However, both of these CBD oils are very effective for treating anxiety!
We believe that CBD should be simple, without any flavors or additives, which is why our CBD oil tinctures have only 2 ingredients; Organic CBD and Organic MCT oil (from coconut). It is tasteless and odorless, effective and affordable.
We have certificates of analysis for all of our CBD products and offer our COA’s upon request.
Another addition to have handy for calming anxiety is a soothing, healing balm. When pain, tension or stress are present you can tend to feel anxious, tense and overwhelmed. If you have something all natural to reach for that can melt the stress, tension and pain away it automatically eases the feeling of anxiety and supports a feeling of well being.
We recommend our Chiki Cannabliss balm for this, as well as for pain relief. This balm has the healing benefits of arnica, magnesium, plus CBD and a blend of 6 dynamic essential oils to ease pain, tension and inflammation.
Using the topical Cannabliss balm and the CBD oral tincture together is a winning combination for soothing anxiety, activating the relaxation response and a feeling of well being. It really works!
The great thing about CBD is that you can use it as needed. As long as you are using a good quality, clean product it will be safe and effective with no side effects except a good mood!
Wishing you all the best in health, peace and love,
