According to Mayo Clinic, CBD dosage should depend on traditional use, expert opinion, scientific research, and publications (source.) Essentially, CBD oil dosages, as well as consumption intervals, should be based on the daily recommend dosages found on your CBD product labels. If the company you are buying from doesn’t offer you dose information on their website or on their product label, DO NOT BUY and REPORT them.
Enter CBD oil: an anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety compound. I have seen in my own life, and many of my patients' lives, the positive impact CBD oil can have on anxiety. Studies have found that CBD oil is a natural anxiolytic (anxiety calmer) and is effective in treating social anxiety. CBD calms anxiety naturally without the potential side effects of pharmaceutical anti-anxiety medications.
Would I say that CBD oil has fundamentally changed my life? No. But per the Charlotte's Web website, this is the typical first experience. "Anyone who has ever started a new vitamin or supplement routine knows the short answer to how long it takes to kick in is—'it depends,'" reads the article on what to expect from hemp oil. "For many newcomers, they're not sure what to imagine, or some anticipate a huge change right away. For most of us, though, dietary supplements take time."
CBD is good for more than just your neurological issues. In fact, it can do wonders with your heart and your circulatory system. Naturally, this includes helping to lower your blood pressure. Most doctors agree that heart pressure can cause many other serious heart conditions, such as heart attacks, strokes, and the metabolic syndrome. Therefore, the most natural way to treat your blood pressure might be CBD oil.
Cannabis also has links to Christianity – specifically through the Ethiopian Coptic Church, which is held to have been established by St. Mark (the guy in the New Testament of The Bible) in AD 45. The Copts claim that the use of marijuana as a sacrament descended from a Jewish sect called the Essenes (the folks who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls). According to the Coptic Church, cannabis played an important role in early Christian and Judaic rituals, specifically as a sacrament burned in tabernacles, to commemorate important occasions such as communication with God on Mount Sinai by Moses, and the transfiguration of Christ.
For people who suffer from insomnia, constant anxiety during the night or simply struggle to get a sound, restful night of undisturbed sleep, cannabis sativa essential oil may work like a charm. However, according to a research report published by Dr. Ethan Russo, Director of Research for the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute, terpenoids produce an “entourage effect”.

The fact that I didn’t have to wait weeks to see results. Fab CBD oil came into our life when both Rufus and I were going to a bad phase. He fell sick for God knows what reason and even after a lot of trips to the vet, we couldn’t find out the problem. I was incredibly stressed and was having random anxiety attacks, fearing that my fur buddy wouldn’t recover.

CBD oil’s role in cancer treatment still needs more research, but what is available is looking promising. According to the American Cancer Society, CBD oil can slow growth and spread of some kinds of cancer (in animals). Because it fights oxidative stress and inflammation (and both are linked to cancer) it makes sense that CBD oil could help fight cancer cells.
CBD exerts several actions in the brain that explain why it could be effective in treating anxiety. Before we dive in, it’s important to note that most research describing how CBD works is preclinical and based on animal studies. As the saying goes, “mice are not men” — and, results from animal studies don’t always neatly transfer to human therapies. However, preclinical studies provide insights that move us in the right direction:
Hello Ben, I’m from India. My apologies in advance for a long letter. I’ve found you article very informative and humorous also. While there are a few references to India, they are mostly of turmeric. Marijuana and Hemp recorded use in India is more than 6000 years old. You seem to have missed out on it though you do talk of Persia and early Christianity dating back to 2000 years.
Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO) is also known as Rick Simpson Oil. Which has THC. Therefore makes you high. It's powerful stuff. Many people get knocked out by it, yet it's effective. Depends on what you are looking to do. Nature CBD does not have THC, so there is no high. Great for during the day or work. Active compounds in Nature CBD are CBD, Curcumin, Ashwagandha, Lemon Balm, Magnesium. FECO is just THC extracted oil.
I am in Santiago, Chile and have bought Cannabis oil here. It is my first time to try it. I am awaiting shipment from U.S. of CBD oil products. I am using the oil to ally my rather constant low level anxiety that sometimes goes near panic as well as chronic sleeplessness. I have been dealing with this challenge for many years without resorting to standard “Harmapheuticals”. It is my hope the oils will calm me and bring me sleep. I have been trying these local oils for past four days without too much in the way of calming effects. I am taking around 30ml of the oil without real positive results. Do you suppose I may have to go to dosage over 100ml a day to get results? I realize you can not give medical advice nor am I asking for it–but if you can give me general directions it would be very helpful. Thanks, Jack in Chile.
May this letter find you and your loved ones happy and healthy for without you I would not be in such an improved state of physical health? It is not often I get to put pencil to paper for not only could I not concentrate due to opiate pharmaceuticals (couldn't express oneself due to lack of cognitive thinking) but the pain, inability to get comfortable due to lymphodemia and anxiety from stress (from lack of cash flow for food, bills, medicines plus the high expense of bandages & ointments) have prevented me from making contact but ....still after this prolonged period of time, I feel it necessary to write personally to mention just how dramatically you changed the world my two children and I live in. My sister Casey Lee Smith, arrived 6 months ago from the USA to run my household and it is through "Phoenix Tears" website she was able to make contact with you and learn all about the many wondrous benefits of medicinal Cannabis oil. When the treatment arrived, I was overwhelmed for I am a single Mother and your generosity brought tears to my eyes (even now it is hard to fight tears as I write) It has been rough to say the least. Feeling helpless, overly tired and frustrated by the lack of qualified physicians in my local town. I became depressed. My ex-husband felt he should prepare the kids for my untimely death. The location of my cancer spread throughout my left quadrant into my lymph and into the brain. I became bed ridden and lost hope. I will lose my house shortly but now i know it won't be my life. So, "THANK YOU" for the gracious gift and know you are loved! Sending love to you forever and always.

Hello. I suffer from GAD, Panic Disorder, and mood disorder. For about a year now I have been contemplating on taking my medication. Number one reason I DO NOT want to take my medication is due to the side effects. I have been prescribed Paxil (which I hear a lot of good stuff about it but also bad) I read the side effect and warning side effects that I should be aware of. One of them was that it might make me feel WORSE AND HAVE SUICIDAL THOUGHTS! Now that to be is beyond scary! I already feel like crap And taking a medication that’s suppose to help me can possibly make me feel worse? That to me sounds scary! So I’ve been researching a lot on CBD oil. All the good benefits and how it has helped many suffering from anxiety and depression. Then I come across this blog that talks about how it works just as an SSRI! That’s amazing. I would rather much try something that is organic made from Mother Nature than Some man made medication. Finally, my husband went out bought me the CBD oil capsules to try out first. Those did not settle well in my stomach ,so I tried vaping. Now let me tell you, I think it was the best thing ever. After 20 min I started calming down, I no longer felt hopeless and I actually felt like eating. Today I am on day 3 of vaping the cbd oil. I woke up feeling good. No head ache today, and I feel calm. It has not yet got me to the 100% where I want to be at but it’s better than nothing. I’m hoping this could help me through my hard time and I won’t have to take my medication. The good thing about CBD oil that is non-psychoactive therefore, you will not get high off of this. They take out the THC part (the part that gets you high) leaving you with CBD which gives you all the benefits.


How do you know if you're having a panic or anxiety attack? Panic attacks and anxiety attacks share some symptoms, but they differ in intensity, duration, and whether or not there is a trigger. Some treatments are similar and include therapy, stress management, and breathing exercises. Learn more about the differences between a panic attack and an anxiety attack here. Read now
If you have a nervous or misbehaving pet, you may be at a loss when it comes to how to help them. Anxiety in dogs can be extremely hard to treat — after all, it’s not like you can have a conversation with your dog to find out what is wrong or how you might be able to help. However, you may have seen CBD making headlines as of late. What is CBD used for when it comes to pets? The answer may surprise you!
Because letting an anxiety disorder go untreated can deplete your quality of life and lead to physical health problems (such as digestive conditions), it’s crucial to consult a doctor rather than self-treating. If you’re thinking of using CBD oil to help manage your anxiety (and it is legal where you live), make sure to talk with your doctor about whether it's right for you.

1.)  Anxiety and depression are very close in terms of the actual cause of the two conditions and that is why they are both mentioned in this 2014 study.  After results were observed, here’s what the researchers said, “Suggest that CBD exhibited an anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects in animal models discussed. Experiments with CBD demonstrated non-activation of neuroreceptors CB1 and CB2. Most of the studies demonstrated a good interaction between CBD and the 5-HT1A neuro-receptor.”  View Source
But from joint pain to irritable bowel syndrome to diabetic retinopathy, CBD has been shown to modulate both acute and chronic inflammatory issues via several different mechanisms, and from the research I’ve seen and cited below, it’s even more powerful than many of the commonly recommend natural remedies for inflammation, such as curcumin, fish oil, resveratrol, anti-oxidants, proteolytic enzymes, Vitamin C, etc.
A 2012 study published in the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBD benefits including possessing anti-nausea and antiemetic effects when it was administered to rats. (13) Researchers found that CBD acts in a diphasic manner, meaning that in low doses it suppresses toxin-induced vomiting, but in high doses it increases nausea or has no effect.
CBD oil and cannabis oil are both known to reduce the symptoms and side effects of cancer. The presence of both THC and CBD helps in treating the pain associated with cancer. According to research done by Hansen M., Medical University of Vienna, Vienna, Austria, it also treats the side effects of chemotherapy including nausea, vomiting, and anxiety.
For individuals suffering from pain and physical ailments, CBD can be one of the best choices for helping you fall asleep. Through several recent studies, CBD has been shown to help alleviate symptoms of PTSD, MS, inflammation, muscular and joint dysfunction, and of course, insomnia. This is because CBD can help to relieve pain, which can prove to be a serious inhibitor of sleep. CBD can be taken as a pill or through inhaling, which is sometimes a more effective way of inducing a restful state. However, pills can act more quickly on the brain than inhalation methods, which is a consideration for those seeking a faster cure for insomnia from CBD.
The CBDistillery is another brand that cares deeply about their customers. And their concern shows in the CBD products they make. I tried the CBDistillery tinctures for anxiety with the same attitude I carry while using products from other brands – expectations set to a minimum. Thankfully, like many other brands I’ve reviewed here, this one did not disappoint as well.
For people who suffer from insomnia, constant anxiety during the night or simply struggle to get a sound, restful night of undisturbed sleep, cannabis sativa essential oil may work like a charm. However, according to a research report published by Dr. Ethan Russo, Director of Research for the International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute, terpenoids produce an “entourage effect”.
