We’ve almost made it, y’all. 2020 is almost over! This year has most likely looked different for most of us and there have certainly been some bumps in the road (to say the least), but the holiday season is generally a joyful one to look forward to and embrace.
Christmas lights, family traditions, spending time with those you love (in a safe way, of course) leave us with that warm, fuzzy feeling.
You know what doesn’t leave us with that feeling that way, though? Too many added commitments, figuring out what gifts to buy everyone on your list, and then wrapping those gifts (my least personal favorite). Maybe your list differs from the one here, but nonetheless, the holidays can cause anxiety for many.
How can CBD help us find relief from anxiety during the holiday season? Let’s explore further.
How CBD Can Help Relieve Anxiety
If you’re human, it’s likely you’ve experienced anxiety. This is our body’s natural response to stress. Some deal with high levels of anxiety on a daily basis, while others don’t feel a lot at all.
Of course, there are anti-anxiety prescription medications, but people are trending towards more natural remedies, CBD being one of them.
There are many reported health benefits of taking CBD, one of which is taking CBD for anxiety relief.
CBD works by interacting with your body’s CB1 and CB2 receptors, important parts of your body’s endocannabinoid system. These receptors are located in your Central Nervous System and most likely play a vital role in altering serotonin levels, a neurotransmitter integral to your mental health.
In some cases, low serotonin levels are believed to cause anxiety. CBD may help to balance these serotonin levels, resulting in a relief from anxiety. As a rule of thumb, please do not stop taking your anti-anxiety meds before talking with your doctor. It’s always wise to consult your primary care physician before incorporating CBD into your routine.
