Everyone can experience it at some point in their lives but not everyone is lucky enough to be able to manage these natural responses. Nobody likes to have anxiety but sometimes it can play an important role as a response to help us adapt to dangers, threats or unnecessary stressors.
With our situations always changing, anxiety can actually help motivate and push us to better our livelihood. We are always trying to improve in many facets, like our jobs or careers, relationships and school. Although, there is a catch, if we cannot maintain these natural responses in an effective manner, the pressure of anxiety can influence these relationships at home, work and school.
Studies done by the NIMH (National Institute of Mental Health) have shown that anxiety-related disorders affect a significant portion of the population just here in the United States alone. They estimate that 40 million adults, 18 and older, suffer from an anxiety-related disorder. That is around 18% of the population in this country! In turn, this has created handfuls of pharmaceutical drugs to treat these disorders. Drugs like Prozac, Zoloft, which are SSRIs (selective serotonin rupture inhibitors) to more sedative, addictive options such as Xanax and Valium. While there are patients who find improvements through these sources, there are also many patients who are unsuccessful and left with intolerable side effects.
Over the past few years there have been some incredible clinical and experimental studies on both animals and humans that suggest CBD carries strong anti-anxiety properties along with plenty other neural benefits. When CBD is used accurately with proper dosage, it can be a safe, non-toxic medicine to help treat disorders such as depression, OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder), PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and even social phobias.
Interestingly enough CBD does not only interact with both CB1 and CB2 receptors in our Endocannabinoid system but also the 5HT1-A receptor which is related to brain and mood functions. This receptor work with serotonin across the brain, and is found in density in the hippocampus and cerebral cortex. These two areas of our brain are all involved in anxiety and mood disorders and when CBD is at work, it promotes neurogenesis in these parts of the brain that are responsible for emotions and the autonomic nervous system. CBD has been discovered to stimulate these areas enough to invoke wide spread anti-anxiety effects.
Some of these experiments are far and few between but the successful trials so far have provided a positive outlook on how we can move forward with CBD and treating anxiety-related disorders. Scientists are eager to find a natural solution that could benefit many users who are experiencing harsh side effects or increasing stress with the prescriptions that were provided to them.
Our goal here at Khepri Renewal is to thoroughly educate on how CBD can potentially supplement these pharmaceutical drugs or give you a fresh start for a healthier balance in life. Nobody deserves to go through life with worry, stress and fear. We all know these feelings are natural experiences but if there was a way to manage this unwanted anxiety, would you try it?
If you feel like this resonates with you in any way don’t be too nervous to ask us any questions that you may have.
