ARE YOU LIVING WITH ANXIETY?
Do you feel anxious or worried about problems at work with your boss? Maybe you get nervous when driving fast or in-between lanes on the motorway during rush hour traffic? Everyone will experience some sort of anxiety from time to time with some lasting anywhere from a few minutes to a few days. For some people anxiety may not go away for weeks, months, or years and can even get worse over time.
The most recent Psychiatric Morbidity Survey has shown that there are around 6 million people in the UK alone that suffer from some sort of Anxiety – and up to a third of the population in the UK will suffer from an Anxiety Disorder or Panic Attacks at some point in their life.
WHAT IS ANXIETY?
Anxiety is what we feel when we are worried, afraid or tense about a situation that may be about to happen or that we think will happen in the future. Anxiety is a natural human ‘Fight, Flight or Freeze‘ response if we think we are under any sort of threat and can be experienced through many different sensations from physical to thoughts and feelings.
“FIGHT, FLIGHT OR FREEZE?"
Just like our animal friends, humans have evolved in ways of sensing danger and learning to protect ourselves from it. When we feel under threat or attack the body will react by releasing adrenaline hormones making us feel more alert so we can act faster. This is known as the ‘Fight, Flight or Freeze’ response and happens automatically within our bodies and we have little or no control over it.

DOES CBD WORK FOR ANXIETY?
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE AND A-LIST CELEBRITIES SAY YES IT CAN HELP TOWARDS DEALING WITH ANXIETY!
Kim Kardashian Threw a CBD-Themed Baby Shower for Her Fourth Child With Kanye West
Kim Kardashian Also Uses CBD To Help Her Deal With Anxiety - “It’s saved my life. I don’t think I would take a Xanax or an Ambien again.”
With raising her four kids, PSALM 4months, CHICAGO 20months, SAINT 3yrs, NORTH 6yrs), filming the popular reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians and running her multiple business ventures Kim Kardashian West doesn’t have a moment to herself. The extremely busy business woman has recently said that CBD has “SAVED HER LIFE”
“How do I do it all? It is exhausting. I just say CBD. [laughs] But I do. It really is CBD that has gotten me through a lot - I got into CBD a few months ago. It’s saved my life. I don’t think I would take a Xanax or an Ambien ever again!” (HYPER LINK)
Beyond the glowing testimonials of individuals who successfully treat their anxiety with CBD oil, there is also a large growing body of scientific evidence that shows CBD oil actually works. At the minute there are several studies pointing to the potential benefits of CBD oil for anxiety disorders. The National institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) have said that CBD oil has shown to reduce stress in animals such as rats and lowered the rat’s behavioural signs of anxiety and increased heart rate. CBD oil has also shown to help treat people with the most common forms of anxiety, like Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), PostTraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), ObsessiveCompulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder and Specific Phobia
A research study was taken in 2011 for CBD’s effects on people with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD). The participants were split into 2 groups with one being given 400mg of CBD oil and the other a placebo. The group that received the CBD oil experienced much less physical symptoms of anxiety.
Many studies have shown CBD oil to help with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) like nightmares or negative memories. The studies looked at both CBD oil as a standalone PTSD treatment as well as a supplement to support more traditional treatments like prescribed medications and talking treatments.
With so many constant sources of stress, people often need a more holistic approach to heal and treat anxiety disorders. Even medical doctors have begun suggesting that people combine traditional psychotherapy & pharmaceutical treatments with more natural organic supplements and relaxation techniques like CBD oil, yoga & meditation.
WHAT IS CBD OIL AND HOW CAN IT HELP ME WITH MY ANXIETY?
CBD is a type of chemical found naturally in all cannabis plants (marijuana and hemp). The human body has many different receptors which receive signals from different stimulations. CBD is thought to interact with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain for controlling anti-inflammatory effects on the body, decreasing pain and altering serotonin levels just to name a few.
HOW IS CBD OIL MADE AND IS IT 100% NATURAL?
CBD oil is derived from the cannabis plant and mixed with an organic natural carrier oil like Hemp Seed Oil or MCT Coconut Oil to produce different potency strengths based on your condition or needs. CBD oil contains non-psychoactive (THC) ingredients and is great for relaxing the mind and body. You will NOT get High/Stoned taking CBD Oil.
Thanks in part to the legalisation in the US and medical marijuana efforts here in the UK, we are now experiencing a surge in cannabis research and production techniques — making it much easier to produce quality whole-plant full spectrum CBD oil without any THC (the controlled substance that gets you ‘HIGH’). CBD oil comes with the healing properties of the cannabis plant without the unpleasant mind-altering side-effects traditionally associated with cannabis or getting high.
RECOMMENDED DOSAGE: Start with 2-4 CBD oil drops twice a day under the tongue (For Fast Absorption – try and hold for a 60-90 seconds before swallowing)
HOW TO TAKE CBD OIL TO HELP DEAL WITH ANXIETY
STEP 1 – Shake Well!! Separation in hemp CBD oil products is completely natural and to be expected as the oil tends to settle onto the bottom.
STEP 2 – Squeeze the dropper top to fill the pipette with CBD oil and dispense 2-4 drops of CBD oil under your tongue. Allow the CBD oil to absorb into your system by holding in your mouth for 60-90 seconds before swallowing.
STEP 3 – Repeat this process twice a day – The recommended serving size of Hello Hemp CBD Oil may not be perfect for everyone, so we encourage you to experiment. We recommend two weeks of consistent usage at the above-recommended dosage for it to build up in your system and for your body to understand what to do with it. If you feel it’s not working enough for you after that time then try increasing your daily dosage. If you think you need a stronger CBD Oil, why not try our Hemp 10% 1000mg CBD oil or Hello Hemp 20% 2000mg CBD oil
TOP TIP: If you find the flavour to be too strong, take a drink of juice as you swallow the CBD oil to mask that hempy flavour.
HOW TO SPOT FAKE OR POOR-QUALITY CBD OIL ONLINE?
With CBD being an unregulated industry, the reality is that some CBD oil products have little to no CBD in them at all. The FDA evaluated CBD products recently and found that 22 out of 24 products did not have the levels of CBD advertised on their label & that over 70% of the market doesn’t know exactly what’s contained within the bottle! During our time in the industry we have seen many FAKE POOR-QUALITY CBD OILS on the UK market and they are normally very easy to spot if you follow these simple rules:
1) LAB CERTIFICATES – Can they provide a valid UK Laboratory Certificate Report showing how much CBD actually in the bottle?
2) FULL INFORMATION – Do they show you the full information on the bottle label and packaging? – CBD % Strength and CBD MG (milligrams) together?
3) BIGGER BOTTLES – Is the bottle bigger than 10ml? Bigger 15ml/30ml/50ml CBD oil bottles normally mean a weaker watered-down version as you are getting the same amount of CBD just a lot more cheaper carrier oil = PLACEBO!!!
4) TOO CHEAP – Is the CBD oil too cheap or do they have special offers like buy 2 get 1 free for £14.99…? When you know the true costs involved in creating quality UK lab tested and certified CBD oil and see offers like the above on eBay & Amazon you do have to wonder what is actually in the bottles as any major cannabis grower or manufacturer of CBD oil would struggle to even get to them prices due to the costs of the whole operation.
