Fear is released in us when we find ourselves in situations that we perceive as threatening or hopeless and triggers the feeling of apprehension or panic. Basically, the feeling of fear puts us on alert and is, in this sense, a positive quality. However, it can also be the case that fear is triggered in some people in situations that are actually unthreatening, such as in a social encounter. This is caused by a misinterpretation of the amygdala (part of the brain responsible for analysing dangerous situations, among other things), which then feigns danger where there is none. As a result, the affected person feels fear out of proportion to the real situation, which is called an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety disorders are among the most commonly diagnosed mental illnesses and should therefore not be neglected or underestimated. They can occur as already mentioned in social encounters, social phobia, but it can also occur as agoraphobia, fear of certain places or situations, or as a general anxiety disorder, the sufferer worries constantly, as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD - anxiety after a stressful experience) or also as panic attacks.
The vast majority of anxiety disorders are treated with conventional medications. However, as these often bring unwanted side effects, CBD has become increasingly popular as a possible alternative in recent years. CBD can have a relaxing and calming effect on the body and can thus help sufferers to alleviate the symptoms of anxiety disorders. CBD should not be confused with the cannabinoid CBG in this context.
There are several studies that have investigated the effect of CBD oil on anxiety. A study from Brazil in 2011 tested the effect of CBD for anxiety on an experimental group. The group was divided into two groups, one was given the placebo and the other was given CBD oil. Significant improvements in anxiety disorders were seen in the group with the CBD preparation, while anxiety remained unchanged in the group with the placebo. In 2015, a study from New York with the same approach came to the same conclusion. In 2014, students from Leipzig also started a study. They were even able to determine an improvement of about 33% in those affected when they were given the CBD oil instead of the placebo. It can therefore be concluded that CBD can have a positive effect on the body.
As CBD oil can make people feel calm or relaxed, CBD can also help sufferers of anxiety disorders. CBD oil can also help with blushing, trembling, urinary and faecal urges, and fear of vomiting, helping sufferers to better control their anxiety disorders. Due to the possible anxiolytic effect of cannabidiol (CBD), which has been found in studies, CBD oil can also be of help in generalised social anxiety disorder.
CBD oil has an effect on the serotonin receptor 5-HT1A (simplified: serotonin sensor) and on the body's own (endogenous) cannabinoid receptor CB1. Through active substances such as benzodiazepines and serotonergic substances that can help relieve symptoms of anxiety disorder. In addition, CBD oil can suppress the release of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. Thus, CBD oil, which is made from certified EU hemp, can weaken negative and stressful emotions and strengthen positive emotions.
Panic and panic attacks can creep up on a person from one moment to the next for no apparent reason. A panic attack can be caused by a small trigger such as an argument between two people, a noisy or chaotic place (supermarket or cinema), a situation that causes the person to feel stressed (workplace, teaching, public speaking), to name just a few examples. The most common symptoms of a panic attack are shortness of breath, palpitations, sweating, dizziness and feeling faint. Panic attacks can also result from the consumption of THC cannabis flowers or HHC products, while CBD is often used as an antidote.
It should be mentioned at the outset that CBD oil is not a panacea and can simply make panic attacks or anxiety disorders disappear. But CBD oil, with its relaxing and calming effect on the body, can help make the lives of people suffering from panic attacks more comfortable. In addition, studies have shown that the consumption of CBD oil can alleviate feelings of panic and thus give more confidence during excitement, for example, in public appearances - which can include presentations or speeches.
Through the interaction of CBD oil with the endocannabinoid system and the serotonin sensor, CBD oil can help increase the production of serotonin and dopamine in the brain, and can thus promote good mood and happiness, while relieving emotions such as stress and anxiety. Thus, CBD oil can counteract the feeling of panic and help sufferers better control their panic and panic attacks. Among other things, terpenes in CBD oils are responsible for the effect.
CBD oil can have an anxiety-relieving effect as it acts on the serotonin sense and the body's cannabinoid system. As CDB oil can take effect after just a few minutes, inducing an inner calm and feeling of relaxation, it can thus help sufferers to better counteract their panic attacks. CBD oil is the preferred variant of cannabis products without THC.
In order for CBD oil to work, each person has to find out at what amount and what percentage it could help them. As with so many things, everyone reacts differently to CBD oil. We therefore recommend starting with the 10% oil and a daily application of a few drops and then see at what dosage something is felt in the body, after feeling your way up step by step. As soon as the affected person has found the right amount for him or herself, we recommend using the CBD oil against panic attacks accordingly. This can be a daily or weekly application, or just the use for stressful situations such as public appearances, exams or presentations. CBD oil will not make panic attacks go away, but with the right dose for each individual, CBD can have an anti-panic effect on panic attacks and greatly alleviate the experience.
It is worth mentioning here that we generally advise pregnant women not to use CBD as it has a negative effect on enzymes and pregnant women need full placental function. We also advise all those concerned not to stop taking medication and replace it with CBD oil without first talking to their doctor. The same applies to Cali CBD flowers. Only medical professionals have the legal authority to make healing statements and to inform about them, which we explicitly point out.. Nur medizinische Fachangestellte haben die rechtliche Befugnis Heilaussagen zu treffen und über diese zu informieren, worauf wir ausdrücklich hinweisen.
