CBD has been shown to alleviate anxiety, calm down your brain, relax tense muscles, and give you a better quality of sleep, but let’s answer the question: How Does CBD Reduce Anxiety?
Products made with CBD promote a more restorative sleep for you. By relaxing tense muscles in your neck and shoulders. Also by regulating the serotonin and dopamine production in your body. And, by reducing cortisol levels in your blood.
CBD can help boost the GABA activity in your brain and slow down your mind when it becomes too anxious. GABA, also known as gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a natural anti-anxiety neurotransmitter produces by your body. Lower GABA levels can lead to anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and insomnia. The right amount of CBD helps the body naturally produce more GABA.
To feel the anxiety-reducing effects of CBD usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes and will last for around 4 to 5 hours.
The best and most effective CBD oils for anxiety are usually made from a full-spectrum hemp extract using organic hemp. This provides a relatively high concentration (of at least 500 milligrams per ounce) of CBD per bottle.
