Cannabis has incredible healing properties and over the years, people have discovered that this plant can treat anxiety. It can also benefit a wide array of illness, diseases and other conditions of ill-health. Some people even believe in taking cannabis on one of its many forms as a daily immunity booster. In this article we will focus on how cannabis oil can treat anxiety.
Cannabis contains several different compounds – cannabidoil (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two compounds most used to treat disease. While CBD is revered for its medicinal qualities, THC is notorious for giving you the high so many people are seeking. It can however help with pain relief, cancer symptom relief and more. The best kind of CBD oil is found in hemp plants which have no psychoactive qualities whatsoever – and you can buy hemp products in any health shop. We are talking about CBD which is becoming more famous for its ability to relieve pain and inflammation, reduce the effects of cancer, reduce acne, fight diabetes and other serious diseases – and combat anxiety.
When we worry and get stressed out, our body becomes more inflamed and we make this worse by eating acidic foods which simply add to our stress levels. CBD can help you fight this inflammation (the underlying cause of many a disease) and relax body and mind. CBD is a cannabinoid and our bodies actually have receptors which these cannabinoids then attach to and influence the body in some way. These receptors are found in our brains, the center of our emotional behaviour from whence we control our anxiety, moods, stress levels and ability to sleep.
When you take CBD regularly, your body makes more of its own cannabinoids which then stimulate more of these receptors – the cannabinoids cling to the receptors and have a positive effect on the body – your heart rates slows down and this means blood pressure goes down. This immediately decreases anxiety and calms the innate ‘fight or flight’ response we have in times of panic. We can then stay and deal with what is making us stress out and we can sort out the stuff in our lives in a calm manner.
Did you know that medical marijuana has been used for hundreds of years to treat depression and anxiety? The chemical compound cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted to specifically treat anxiety.
