I have been anxious, daily, since I can remember.. remembering. As a child it manifested as upset stomachs and crying when life was not manageable emotionally. As an adult it manifests in anxious overwhelmed feelings of worry, feeling out of control of the factors in my most intimate relationship, and loss of sleep.
Anxiety-related disorders affect a huge segment of our population—40 million adults (18%) in the United States age 18 and older. 🍯💛.
In the last few weeks my management of my anxiety has lost its footing and I decided it was time to start researching other methods of management for my #anxiety .
I came upon #cbd research and the use of daily supplementation of oral cbd. I was interested and invested and have spent two weeks reading, questioning, and finally reaching out to a wonderful IG Fam Bam 💥 company @notecbd 🍯💛.
In recent years, CBD has generated a tremendous amount of interest among consumers, clinicians, and scientists. Numerous accumulating evidence from human experimental, clinical, and epidemiological studies suggest CBD has powerful anti-anxiety properties. All cannabinoids, including CBD, produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors. The human body produces certain cannabinoids on its own. It also has two receptors for cannabinoids, called the CB1 receptors and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are present throughout the body, but many are in the brain. The CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination and movement, pain, emotions, and mood, thinking, appetite, and memories, and other functions. CB2 receptors are more common in the immune system. They affect inflammation and pain.
Researchers once believed that CBD attached to these CB2 receptors, but it now appears that CBD does not attach directly to either receptor.
Instead, it seems to direct the body to use more of its own cannabinoids.
One of the line items I researched in my cbd research was that of anxiety and how research has shown the improvement of anxiety symptoms in those taking daily supplementation.
I’m on day three of taking @notecbd 300mg CBD Full Spectrum Hemp Oil supplement.
I have felt a shift. Continued 👇🏻.
