Anxiety is one of the most common of all mental disorders with 7.3% or 1 in 13 people living with anxiety globally & on a local level: 1 in 6 South Africans live with depression or anxiety according to SADAG. Dr Eugene Allers, a leading South African psychiatrist believes that when crime and motor-vehicle accidents are taken into consideration, up to 6 million South Africans could suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder – leaving many people experiencing bouts of anxiety.
Early research is still being conducted to examine the relationship between CBD and anxiety. What we do know is that CBD works with the body’s own endocannabinoid system to stimulate production of anandamide, which is sometimes known as “the joy molecule” or “the bliss molecule.” Increased levels of anandamide can result in a sunnier outlook, a more positive and upbeat mood, and promote a greater sense of calm.
According to a 2015 review, CBD interacts with our cannabinoid type 1 receptor as well as other integral receptors that help to regulate feelings of anxiety & fear. The authors found that preclinical & clinical evidence pointed to CBD as an effective type of treatment for different kinds of anxiety particularly; generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
