Is CBD good for anxiety?

Will CBD be good for my anxiety?

Becky Spencer-Davies, 05/12/2018 

The cannabis plant contains chemicals also known as cannabinoids, one of which is CBD. CBD, and other cannabinoids may relieve pain symptoms when they bind to specialised receptors in the brain.

You might have heard the term cannabinoid before and be worried that like THC CBD will get you high- it won’t. CBD oil will not cause the ‘high’ associated with cannabis.
CBD is said to be good for a number of mental and physical conditions, including anxiety and depression, as well as slowing the growth of cancer and reducing pain symptoms.

CBD can be added to food, or taken using a few drops. You can also find CBD in vape form which is an enjoyable way to take the substance as it also produces flavour. At vape and juice we have a number of CBD vape juices in a range of flavours so you get a satisfying vape as well as the relief from SAD and anxiety.

Studies showing CBD is good for Anxiety

CBD oil for anxiety

In a small study in 2010 CBD was found that it could reduce social anxiety symptoms.

This was discovered by using brain scans which revealed changes in blood flow which linked to anxiety feelings. In this study the subjects felt better, and their brains changed the way in which they responded to feelings of anxiety.
In a more recent study in 2016 it was found that CBD helped a child with a history of trauma and PTSD sleep and reduced her anxiety.
