Using CBD Oil to positively impact Your Mental Health

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 out of every 5 Americans (roughly 66.5 million individuals) lives with some type of mental health illness or issue. Of that group, nearly 22% or 14.6 million reported they felt that their mental healthcare needs were only partially met or not met at all. Furthermore, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has only worsened things and it has been estimated that 20% of Americans suffer with some form of anxiety while 22% also suffer with depression.

Could CBD Oil help in these Circumstances?

It’s commonly known that CBD oil doesn’t produce the same psychoactive effects as THC. Even more important is the fact that CBD oil doesn’t exhibit the same potential for abuse that THC does. In fact, numerous controlled and randomized clinical trials have shown that CBD is well-tolerated and offers a good safety profile. Ascertaining the safety of using CBD is only one side of the coin, so to speak. However, its efficacy and viability are another story completely.

CBD and Anxiety Disorders

The NIMH recognizes 4 primary types of anxiety disorders including:
  • GAD – generalized anxiety disorder
  • PD – panic disorders
  • SAD – social anxiety disorders
  • other specific phobias
At one time, the “Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders” used to include OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). This is no longer the case as these two are no longer classified as anxiety disorders. CBD oil appears to have almost limitless therapeutic properties including:
  • analgesic
  • anti-arthritic
  • anticonvulsant
  • antiemetic
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antineoplastic
  • antioxidant
  • antipsychotic
  • neuroprotective
While the potential for using CBD applies to a diverse range of mental health conditions, additional clinical trials are still needed. Granted, many have dubbed this material as a “miracle cure” of sorts as the evidence found in clinical trials has been compelling. On the surface, stress is attributed to several mental health conditions and illness. Thus, by alleviating those symptoms, it can go a long way towards reducing the progression to anxiety. However, the efficacy of CBD oil goes beyond that.

For example, consider its interaction with the brain’s receptors that regulate a person’s reaction to anxiety and fear. CBD exerts anxiolytic/anti-anxiety medications effects through this mechanism. In addition to this, its potential for suppressing or treating the symptoms attributed to anxiety has been very promising, especially when considering that high dosages don’t contribute to anxiogenic/substances that cause anxiety effects.
