Anxiety and CBD
Generalised Anxiety Disorders (GAD) are estimated to affect about 5% of people in the United Kingdom and they are especially prevalent in the age range of 35 to 59. Anxiety disorders can be debilitating, significantly impacting an individual’s day to day life, making regular tasks and interactions seem insurmountable. Women are almost twice as likely to be diagnosed with GADs than men and individuals often never seek diagnosis, silently battling the symptoms.
GAD is a long-term condition that causes the suffer to feel anxious about a wide range of issues and situations, and although symptoms vary from person to person, they often include constant worrying and an inability to maintain concentration. If a GAD is left untreated, it can lead to extremely negative consequences for the individual including leaving them unable to attend work and school and impacting on their social relationships. Mental health issues are often associated with a stigma meaning individuals do not always seek the help they need. Whilst it is recommended to seek professional medical advice when experiencing symptoms of mental health issues, there are numerous potential treatments for GAD. Small lifestyle changes such as exercising more and reducing alcohol consumption can have a big impact, but recent studies have suggested that CBD oil has been shown to be beneficial in reducing the physiological symptoms of anxiety.
A recent study, conducted in New Zealand, evaluated the effects of CBD on a range of health issues including anxiety and found that the individuals who received CBD products to treat anxiety and depression had a reduction of symptoms and experienced improvement in their ability to complete daily tasks. The study showed that participants taking a minimum dose of a 25-milligram capsule of CBD once a day resulted in 78.1% of patients reporting an improvement in anxiety symptoms.
