Recently I have had many clients asking me about CBD and what they can do for anxiety and/or panic attacks. The surprising answer to that question is that there are not studies linking CBD to any negative side effects. I was really surprised at this because when we were researching insomnia and depression, I never found any studies saying CBD could help treat either problem. I always thought there would be some negative effect associated with the use of cannabis, but nothing has been reported. It is my contention that since CBD is so closely related to THC, which is responsible for marijuana’s side effects, then it could have a similar effect on those who are experiencing anxiety or panic attacks.
If you are suffering from anxiety and/or panic attacks and are taking marijuana, I recommend you avoid CBD oil. You will see in my next article that I do recommend some form of CBD, however, if you are taking a combination of medication for your anxiety/panic disorders, you should also consider adding CBD to your treatment medications. I know it may sound counterproductive, but believe me, if your anxiety is caused by an underlying medical condition, including epilepsy, Lupus, or bi-polar disorder, then it just makes sense to help treat that condition, not mask the symptoms.
When it comes to anxiety and/or panic attacks, what you need to know is that they are often caused by extreme amounts of stress and anxiety. People who suffer from social anxiety are often worried about speaking in public, being rejected by others, or going through a stressful social situation. They may also experience feelings of panic and distress for no apparent reason. When these symptoms become chronic and continue for more than six months, then you have a problem. And, most medical professionals will tell you that the best way to deal with these types of anxiety is to treat the cause(s) of the anxiety, not the symptoms.
Here is another thing I should mention. One of the most common side effects of taking prescription drugs for anxiety or depression is that the patient can become addicted to the drugs. Taking CBD will reduce anxiety symptoms, but it will not cure the problem. So, before starting any CBD treatment program, make sure you are aware of all the possible side effects, which include addiction. Now, on to the benefits of CBD. It has been shown to have some very strong anti-anxiety and anti-depression properties, as well as being very powerful in helping the body produce natural chemicals that ease pain and inflammation.
In a clinical trial, a number of people with chronic anxiety and depression were given either placebo medication or CBD. The results showed that those subjects given CBD had better overall moods and that their depression symptoms were reduced significantly more quickly than those given placebo. From this review found evidence that CBD might help the body produce more serotonin, which is a chemical in the brain that helps regulate mood.

For those who are considering using CBD to treat their seizure symptoms with hopes of reducing the chances of having a loss of consciousness and other severe consequences, they should be aware that this type of treatment should not be used alone. It is highly recommended that you speak to your doctor before starting a course of CBD oil. Also, be sure to do your research into this particular topic, both online and offline. There is a lot of information that is both accurate and not, so make sure you get it all from reliable sources. Remember, that every person is different, so what works for one person might not necessarily work for another. But by doing your homework, it should be easy to find reputable professionals in your area that can help you.
