Does CBD Effectively Help with PTSD & Anxiety?

Does CBD Effectively Help with PTSD & Anxiety?Stress and anxiety are a normal part of life and usually short-lived, but for 40 million Americans, it’s a daily battle. Whether it’s anxiety due to biological, psychosocial, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), the treatment options usually include behavioral therapy, counseling, and various prescription medications that block or dull different areas of the brain.

There are neurotransmitters throughout the entire body that send signals to the brain, alerting us instantaneously of real or perceived danger. Anxiety is made up of both psychological and physical symptoms. The psychological part creates the nervousness, fear and worry, while the physical aspect produces sweating, rapid heart palpitations, a rise in blood pressure, nausea and shortness of breath.

When anxiety disorders are left untreated or undertreated, several areas of the brain like the hippocampus (regulates emotions) and the prefrontal cortex (decision making, planning abilities) shrink causing long-term damage.

PTSD
With PTSD, many individuals have severe nightmares, flashbacks, hyper startle responses, and loss of interest, severe anxiety and are often suicidal. Numerous military veterans with PTSD have issues with employment, violence, and relationships. These veterans often have severe flashbacks. Many people who suffer from PTSD have difficulty sleeping, feel detached and estranged, which can lead to permanent disability.

The standard treatment options for anxiety and PTSD are antidepressant medications. Some of the most widely known drugs prescribed are Prozac, Lexapro, Zoloft, and Oxycontin. The classes of these medications play a role in how the neurotransmitters affect the mood by improving your state-of-mind and creating a more peaceful, cheerful spirit, by extinguishing the brain’s transmitters. The problem is these drugs are highly addictive, have adverse side effects, and also in many cases, show signs of cognitive decline with long-term use.

The other issue with standard medications is that they more often than not, become ineffective and are unable to reverse feelings of severe depression. This is called treatment-resistant depression.

How does Cannabis Help with Anxiety Disorders?
Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to cannabis (industrial hemp). The structure of cannabis interacts directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with industrial hemp, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body. The endocannabinoid cells have tiny receptors that take in chemicals and produce responses. This natural system in our bodies regulates things like mood, sleeping, immunity, pleasure, memory and much more.

CBD oil is known to show beneficial results for seizures, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, autoimmune diseases and other chronic ailments. What is CBD oil? Well, most of us have heard about the health advantages of Hemp or Marijuana, but the major difference with CBD is that it has none of the psychoactive factors or intoxicating effects of cannabis. The THC level (the chemical that makes one high) is removed through an extraction process. In most cases CBD oil is primarily free of the mood altering components, this is especially the case with the Organic CBD oil used in Vintage Joye™ CBD Organics products.

Recent studies have shown multiple health benefits of CBD:
• Relieves pain

• Cancer cell growth inhibitor
• Reduces Seizures/anticonvulsant
