CBD FOR ANXIETY | You don’t have to get high to feel relief

Eaze Team

Anxiety is our friend!

Awareness of threats and connection to past trauma are essential to our survival, instinctual responses rooted so deep that they are with us constantly — even as we sleep. But when those alarms ring too loudly, or for too long, anxiety can range from uncomfortable to crippling.

When people search for cannabis therapy relief, anxiety ranks up there with insomnia and chronic pain in terms of interest, according to Eaze Insights data analysis. It’s little wonder that as people seek ways to curb alcohol and prescription drugs dependency, they become more cannabis-curious.

Cannabis takes a paradoxical path to helping with anxiety, because it’s also known to cause anxiety. Some people have had exclusively anxious experiences with cannabis. Experienced consumers can sometimes have an anxious session, too.

But those experiences are almost always associated with taking too much THC. The “high” cannabinoid certainly has a role in stress mediation – but there’s a way to avoid it altogether and still feel the benefits of the plant.

Looking for symptom relief and no high? Try CBD-only.

If you’re new to cannabis and are seeking stress relief, CBD is the ideal place to start.

The second-most common compound found in the cannabis plant interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid signals like THC, but it does not make you feel high. The two compounds work best when presented together in a phenomenon called the “entourage effect,” but CBD all by itself has shown promise for a number of applications.

Pure, 100% CBD vaporizers, tinctures and edibles are a safe, low-stakes way to find out if CBD moves the needle on your anxiety. Their subtle calming and relaxing effects can create a sense of overall well-being that doesn’t bring any of the intense euphoria, mental confusion — and yes, paranoia — that can be associated with THC in any dosage.

And unlike with THC, you can’t easily overdo it with CBD. No amount has shown to be toxic or create adverse effects in people or animals. Start with the smallest dose possible, usually around 10 milligrams, and work your way up to a point where you feel comfortable.
