This neurological condition is complex and presents itself in many different forms. Some people have panic attacks, others develop phobias and still more suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Anxiety begins from a state of overwhelming worry. When the worry starts to affect daily life – the patient cannot eat or sleep and develops extreme fatigue – medication is needed.
Anxious people become tense and their posture becomes so bad that their bodies suffer. Muscle tension increases around the neck, shoulders, hips and legs. It is wise to do more exercise but be careful not to damage tendons or muscles through over-use. Anxiety originates in the gut so many people develop terrible digestive disorders which in turn disrupt their sleep, working abilities and more. Anxiety can be revealed as panic attacks, stage fright, perfectionism, obsessive-compulsive disorder and doubt of one’s abilities.
How Can Cannabis Oil Benefit Anxiety?
Cannabidiol (CBD) can help fight inflammation caused by stress (the underlying cause of many a disease) and relax body and mind. CBD-infused medical grade cannabis is ideal for anxiety as it alleviates inflammation, pain, spasms, sleep issues, eating issues and more. The patient feels much calmer and in control. CBD is a cannabinoid which binds to specific cannabinoid receptors, many of which occur in the brain – the centre of emotional behaviour, including anxiety, moods, stress levels and ability to sleep. Tests have shown that CBD relieves all levels of anxiety, from worry to panic attacks and PTSD.
