Does CBD Help With Anxiety?

These days, it seems as if CBD has become a catch-all cure for almost every disorder. Have back pain? Try CBD. Have skin inflammation? CBD. Having a hard time sleeping? Take two CBD and call me in the morning.

Of course, the truth is far more nuanced. Regulations from the United States Food & Drug Administration essentially prohibit any CBD vendor from making definitive medical claims about CBD, and that’s with good reason, as more evidence is needed before making most CBD-related claims. However, that is not to say that there isn’t some evidence out there that demonstrates CBD’s efficacy in addressing numerous physical and emotional problems.

One such example is anxiety, and a variety of scientific studies have demonstrated that CBD may help people with anxiety-related problems.

What Does CBD Do?

If you are new to CBD, you are likely to have many questions about what the compound is and what it does. Odds are good that you have seen other people using it or heard others race about how effective it can be. While a wide array of research is still pending, a huge amount of studies have been conducted and have shown that CBD may have the ability to address many ills.

Here’s a quick examination of just how CBD works and what it may be able to do for you. 

What does CBD do for your body?

CBD’s impact is felt because of the way it alters the functioning of your Endocannabinoid System. The body’s Endocannabinoid System was first discovered by researchers in the 1990s. It works to keep your body in a state of homeostasis – at least one paper has referred to it as the body’s “universal regulator.” This means that it strives to keep a variety of systems and sensations – like pain, temperature, stress, fatigue, and more – within a certain set parameter.

Does CBD Show Up On A Drug Test?

The newness of CBD has resulted in many, many new questions about the compound. This all makes sense – after all, CBD was only legalized less than two years ago at the federal level, and regulations from the United States Food & Drug Administration are still forthcoming. However, for as many questions as there are, there are also many answers.

One of the common causes of confusion about CBD is whether or not CBD shows up on a drug test. Thankfully for CBD users, the answer is usually no…with some exceptions.

First, it’s important to understand how a drug test works and why this might have an interaction with CBD. There are, of course, many different types of drug tests, including tests that examine for the presence of THC in the system. THC is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, and it is the active cannabinoid in marijuana that is responsible for the intoxication that someone feels when they consume marijuana. Amounts vary, but the average THC content of marijuana is usually around 12%

Does CBD Get You High?

CBD’s popularity has been nothing short of astounding. The cannabinoid compound has become one of the most popular supplements on the market since its legalization less than two years ago. It is available in thousands of stores and websites. Survey data indicates that millions of Americans have tried CBD, and that number is likely to increase. 

However, CBD is very new to the commercial market. This, combined with some confusion about its origins, has left many people with some basic questions: What, exactly, is CBD? What good can it do? Does CBD get you high?

The answer to that last question is no. CBD does not get you high, provided it is produced within normal legal parameters.

Is CBD Illegal?

CBD’s popularity has absolutely skyrocketed over the past two years, with surveys showing that at least 1 in 7 Americans had tried the compound as of last year. Those numbers have unquestionably increased since then, driving the popularity of an industry that may be more than doubling in growth every year.

However, CBD, in some forms, does contain trace amounts of THC. THC is short for tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the intoxicating compound in marijuana. As a result, there is some confusion about CBD, and many have asked if CBD is illegal.

The answer is no. CBD is perfectly legal, provided it meets certain legal parameters and is produced in compliance with all federal, state, and local laws. 

So, is CBD illegal?

What is CBD?

These days, CBD has become one of the absolute hottest items on the market. You don’t need to read this article for proof: All you need to do is go for a walk in a commercial district or do a little bit of Googling. According to a survey from August 2019 15% of Americans have actually tried CBD – and that was less than a year after its legalization at the federal level. There is little doubt that those numbers have only increased since then. 

Interestingly enough, despite the fact that CBD is wildly popular, many people don’t fully understand just what CBD is, how it works and what it does. If that’s the case for you, read on for more.

What is CBD?

CBD is a compound and is short for cannabidiol. CBD is not a drug – at least, not in the traditional sense. It comes from the hemp plant and is extracted via multiple potential methods. 

Ultimately, the goal of these extraction methods is to turn CBD into a product that can then be used by humans or animals. Once the product is ingested, CBD may have multiple benefits, including addressing numerous physical and emotional challenges. This includes back painarthritisinsomnia, and more.

What Does CBD Stand For?

CBD is very new to the market and has become exceptionally popular in a relatively short period of time. As a result of its extreme popularity – driven by an interest in CBD’s potential ability to heal a variety of physical and emotional issues – more and more people have suddenly expressed an interest in purchasing CBD.However, as a result of its newfound popularity, many people have asked some of the most basic questions about CBD. What, exactly, does CBD do? What are CBD’s benefits? And what does CBD stand for?

That last question is very easy to answer!

CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol – or CBD – is a type of cannabinoid – one of the roughly 100 that have been identified by scientists or researchers. Indeed, there are many commonly known cannabinoids that go by different abbreviations that are related to their names, including:

  • THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol
  • CBN, or cannabinol
  • CBG, or cannabigerol
  • CBL, or cannabicyclol

How Does CBD Make You Feel?

CBD has become one of the most popular supplements on the market today, with some surveys showing that as many as 15% of all Americans had actually tried it as of last year – a number that has surely increased since then. CBD’s popularity stems from a wide array of businesses that have begun selling the compound, as well as the fact that some research shows that the compound can help to address many physical and emotional problems that people experience.

Obviously, many have found that CBD helps them feel better by addressing various challenges that they are experiencing. How CBD makes someone feel is an important question, as it can reduce many negative experiences and leave someone feeling much better than they did before taking the substance.

How to Use CBD Oil

Most of the time, when you are using a new drug or supplement, you know exactly what you are doing. After all, in most cases, the issue in question is relatively self-explanatory: You swallow the pill and are done with it.

CBD, however, can be far more complicated.

CBD’s popularity has made many people ask how to use CBD oil. This question needs to be asked because CBD is such a diverse, versatile substance. It comes in a slew of forms, including tinctures, edibles, oral strips, creams, balms, vaping juices, and more. As a result, there is no set method about how you are supposed to use CBD oil – instead, there are many, and the answer to this question depends on just how you choose to ingest your CBD.

As such, here’s a list of how to use many common CBD products:

  • CBD TincturesTinctures are CBD that has been mixed with some sort of holding liquid that usually gives the substance its flavor. They usually come in a small eyedropper, which allows individuals to specifically control the amount of the substance that they take. They can be taken in one of two ways. First, tinctures can be taken sublingually, meaning under the tongue. This allows for very fast absorption and makes tinctures one of the fastest ways for CBD to be consumed. Second, if you don’t like the flavor of a tincture, you can always add it to your food or drink product.

How Long Does CBD Stay In Your System?

CBD’s popularity has skyrocketed, with the compound becoming more popular than virtually any similarly situated supplement. 1 in 7 Americans has tried CBD as of last year, numbers that have unquestionably increased since the survey was taken. The popularity of CBD is even more remarkable when you consider that the substance has only been legal at the federal level for less than two years.

CBD’s newness has given rise to a wide array of questions about the product, however. One of the more common ones is just what CBD does to your body, and how long CBD stays in your system. There’s no hard and fast answer, but there are some factors that can help you figure out what will make CBD last for a longer or shorter period of time.

These factors can change, and there are things that are temporary or more permanent when it comes to determining how long CBD will stay in your system. Less changeable, more permanent items include:

  • Your history with CBD and cannabis products, like marijuana. The more you use, the longer it takes for the product to leave your system. Interestingly enough, the same principles make it more likely your use of CBD may result in a positive drug test.
  • Your body and metabolism speed. Generally speaking, your metabolism and size will be big impacts in terms of how long it takes for you to process CBD.
