Hope For Anxiety — Natural and Fast Acting CBD

Do you ever find your heart beating faster? Shortness of breath? Your chest tightening? These are symptoms of anxiety that sadly many of us are familiar with.

Just the other day while driving to work I had to quickly pull over and stop my car. My heart was beating too fast and my brain was on a negative spiral downward regarding my ability to face what was ahead of me that day. First thing first… I dug through my purse a bit frantically, I was looking for my CBD tincture pouch. Once I had it I took out what I call “The Pro” bottle. This is my high dose emergency bottle. I take a dose. I take deep breaths. I repeat my mother’s mantra that “I am strong, I am strong, I am strong”. Then after a few minutes I was able to proceed on… I was calmer, stronger and hopeful. To me this is what anxiety looks like and how I treat it naturally.

Some of us experience anxiety on a regular basis and there are certainly many different levels and causes of anxiety. It seems we all have our own story about anxiety and about how we deal with it. Dr. Tiffanie Jones says “Ideally, we are taking preventative care approaches such as daily mindful breathing, avoiding toxic relationships, stabilizing blood sugar with adequate protein and essential fats, along with getting enough relaxing minerals from green vegetables.”

Taking preventative steps can be challenging and that is why many people reach for medications that provide fast acting relief. However, many people don’t know that sedatives like Zanax can be highly addictive and potentially lethal. Many people also don’t know that CBD is an all-natural alternative and that it is extremely fast acting.

At our recent team training at Canvas Boutique and Dispensary, Dr. Tiffanie Jones informed us that current research on CBD has found benefit for those suffering from generalized anxiety, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress, obsessive compulsion, panic disorders, and depression. And that brain scans taken after consumption of CBD note a change in blood flow to areas associated with anxiety along with changes in the way the brain responds to anxiety.
