How CBD can help Calm Anxiety
One of the main reasons Cannabiol (CBD) has become so popular is due to its ability to naturally drive-down inflammation. While inflammation isn’t necessarily bad, often it can quickly get out of hand and manifest into disease. An increase in levels of inflammation is involved in aches and pains, brain fog, skin issues and anxiety. Let’s explore how CBD can help calm anxiety and promote a new sense of calmness.
CBD Calms the Brain
The calming effects of CBD are supported by multiple research studies. CBD oil has been shown to reduce anxiety by increasing prefrontal cortex activation and lowering activity in the amygdala- two areas of the brain involved in anxiety. CBD also binds directly to the 5-HT1A Serotonin Receptor in the brain which is thought to play a major role in regulating anxiety disorders.
While CBD has been shown to calm anxiety it can also improve your resilience under stress. Current research indicates Cannabidiol can help us deal with stress by affecting brain systems involved in stress regulation and responses.
There are many great quality CBD products available but it is essential to ensure you are purchasing a product from organically grown hemp that has been third-party tested for potency and quality.
