There’s more than enough buzz around CBD these days – it’s nearly impossible to scroll through Facebook or Instagram without some sort of advertisement or adamant testimonial floating through your feed. For some, CBD has become a regular part of their routine. For others, it’s become a new curiosity. One of the main reasons people are leaning into CBD lately is to ease anxiety. The question of the moment seems to be: does it really help? Skeptics read on.
At Vitae we answer with a resounding YES and so does emerging clinical research. Check out these studies to learn a bit more:
- This double-blind study in which patients were administered CBD vs. Placebo. The CBD Group showed significant reduction in anxiety vs. the placebo.
- This Anxiety & Sleep study which showed a 66% improvement in sleep scores and concludes that CBD shows promise as an anxiety reduction tool.
So, what kinds of CBD products can help me ease anxiety?
While using CBD topically (on your skin in the form of a lotion or salve) can ease inflammation and muscular tension, if you are looking to reduce anxiety in a significant way we suggest that you consume CBD orally. There are so many routes you can take when ingesting CBD but tintures, gummies, and chocolate are a few of our house favorites!
To aid you in finding the product that’s right for you, here’s a list of our best selling products for anxiety starting from the lowest dose to the higher dosing products we carry at Vitae:
