CBD has been a healing ingredient in my holistic anxiety “toolkit” for a while now. I honestly used to think that CBD would make me high/stoned so I avoided it for a while even after I would come across information about how good it is for anxiety!
So I can imagine you may be thinking the same thing right now!
I’m typically very cautious, scared even, of any new supplements or tinctures, and usually avoid taking it even after I buy it haha!
But I’m so glad I mustered up the courage to try CBD and feel the benefits for myself. I can honestly say I don’t go a day without it anymore – typically taking CBD oil in the morning and before bed.
If you feel ready to try CBD as part of your holistic healing journey for anxiety, you may have done some research yourself and may even be confused as to where to even start with CBD!
To make it easier for you, I’ve partnered with ThoughtCloud to bring you their incredible range of the purest CBD products (100% organic, lab-tested CBD oils made from hemp plants grown on licensed farms in the USA) that are ideal for anxiety.
Just one less thing for you to worry about 🙂
Here are a few more common questions I’ve received since sharing about CBD on my Insta, and you can scroll down for the exact CBD products I use so you can get them for yourself!
CBD for Anxiety FAQ
🌱 How does CBD work for anxiety? CBD works by telling your body to produce more serotonin aka the brains happy chemical which anxiety sufferers like you and I are often low in. And the effects to reduce chronic stress in many cases are almost immediate.
🌱 Will CBD make me high? Even though CBD does have instant effects, it’s more a calming effect, and not a “high” effect.
🌱 Will CBD “cure” my anxiety? I don’t want you to think of CBD as a “quick fix.” It should very much be part of your ongoing lifestyle, as it is for me.
🌱 Can I still drive if I take it? Since CBD doesn’t make you high, rather giving you calming effects, it isn’t typically known to affect driving capability. However, I would recommend trying it at home for a while so you can get used to how it affects you before driving right after.
🌱 Will it show up on a drug test? The CBD I use has a 0.1% chance or less of showing up on a drug test.
🌱 Can I take it with my other supplements? What about with prescription meds? I take it with my other supplements with no issues or side effects and research shows that CBD does not typically interact negatively with supplements. If you’re on prescription medication, it’s always best to first consult with your doctor!
🌱 How much should I take? It’s different for everyone and after using it yourself, you will begin to intuitively know how much you need. I usually take a dropper of CBD oil with my supplements after breakfast and then another dropper before bed. But always check the label for specific starting guidelines. You can smoke CBD too, and even take it as edibles if you prefer.
