Can Pure CBD Help With Social Anxiety?

Many around the world suffer from social anxiety disorder, and it’s a condition that can manifest itself at any age. Anxiety can happen when you least expect it and it can make day-to-day living quite difficult for some, but there are ways to combat the symptoms and one of them can be using pure CBD.

If you haven’t used organic CBD oil before and are wondering how it might affect you and what type of social anxiety symptoms it can alleviate, we at Asha Apothecary have collected some important insight for you below!

What Exactly is Social Anxiety?

Before diving into how pure CBD can help alleviate the symptoms of social anxiety, we first wanted to touch on precisely what it is and how it can affect your life. There are a lot of different things that can be a catalyst and trigger social anxiety symptoms, such as stress at work or at home, relationships, and other major life events. Unfortunately, these things can trigger some serious symptoms that can be very difficult to deal with without the right help and support, including:

  • Vomiting

  • Nausea

  • Insomnia

  • Fear

  • Racing Thoughts

  • Weakness

  • Trouble Concentrating

  • Shaking

  • Feelings of Stress

  • Feelings of Dread and Worry

  • A Racing Heartbeat

  • Rapid Respiration

What is Pure CBD?

Short for cannabidiol, CBD is a naturally occurring substance found in the cannabis plant that doesn’t bear any psychoactive components, so you don’t have to worry about getting high when you take it. Organic CBD is legal and available in everything from gummies to tinctures, capsules, and more.

How Does CBD Help Anxiety?

Today, there are a variety of medications that are prescribed for social anxiety disorder, everything from Valium to Prozac and Xanax. The biggest drawbacks to these kinds of drugs is their addictive properties. For those who want a more natural option that isn’t addictive, pure CBD and organic CBD oil can be ideal. It can help reduce some of the most common symptoms caused by social anxiety disorder.

It’s not commonly known, but the body actually contains cannabinoids that occur naturally as part of its endocannabinoid system. This system helps regulate things like immune response, memory, metabolism, and many more things that can affect you both physically and emotionally.

An increase in cannabinoids can help provide a boost to your endocannabinoid system and lessen the more extreme effects of social anxiety, helping you to live a better, happier life and deal with your symptoms in a positive way.

One of the most notable things about using CBD to help with anxiety is that studies have shown that there are minimal side effects to using it when compared to the other anxiety medication mentioned above.

A Few More Benefits of Pure CBD Before You Go…

Before you go, we wanted to touch on a few of the additional benefits of treating social anxiety with pure CBD.

  • It’s a Natural Antidepressant: Studies have shown that CBD actually boosts serotonin levels and can help balance some of the symptoms of anxiety, such as your mood and racing thoughts.

  • Its Antipsychotic Properties: CBD has antipsychotic properties making it a popular treatment for those who suffer from schizophrenia or other seizure disorders. For those suffering from such disorders, it can relieve the anxiety they feel in certain situations by potentially suppressing everything from hallucinations to minimizing bouts of depression.

  • It’s a Therapy Aid: For those who are also undergoing social anxiety treatment with a licensed therapist, pure CBD can be a good addition to the process because it aids with relaxation. With its anxiolytic properties, you may find coupling CBD with your therapy sessions makes you more comfortable when speaking about your issues.

  • Learned Fear: There are some environmental stimuli that can trigger social anxiety symptoms. Also known as “learned fear” these are everyday things that for one reason or another might trigger a panic attack or another severe symptom of social anxiety. But pure CBD can help lessen the amount of learned fear you have.

  • It’s Ethically Sourced: All of our products are derived from 100% sustainably grown cannabis plants. The CBD marketplace is still largely unregulated, and many products out there aren’t clear about what they contain. All of our packaging is labeled with a QR code that links to a third-party scientific study listing all of its ingredients.
