Though we still have a way to go to normalizing and prioritizing mental wellness as a society – at Press Pause, we pride ourselves on providing a platform and safe space for discussion, community, and wise advice. Let’s get into anxiety and how CBD can help.
Did you know that from puberty to age 50, women are almost twice as likely than men to develop an anxiety disorder? There are many factors that contribute to the higher rates of diagnosed anxiety in women. From hormone fluctuations and brain chemistry to differences in how women and men cope, here are some of the more common reasons that may account for the higher prevalence:
Research has shown that women with anxiety disorders were found to experience a greater illness burden than men. Women also tend to deal with their anxiety by agoraphobic avoidance while men often turn to substance abuse.
Since all cannabinoid therapy varies from person to person, this also is especially true with anxiety. The results and effectiveness highly vary on the person, the administration method, product cannabinoid profile, timing, and dosage. Some women find value when using CBD on an as-needed basis while others report needing to use it consistently in order to experience less anxiety overall.
We recommend self-experimenting with dosage and timing to find what works best for you. When it comes to understanding the effects of any new supplementation, it’s also wise to keep a journal where you track your dosage, timing, and anxiety. This can give you a clear set of data points for creating the proper CBD regimen for anxiety management and allowing you to better understand how it affects you.
Similar to grapefruit, CBD can cause drug interactions by temporarily deactivating the cytochrome p450 system. If you are currently taking medication, it is crucial to speak to your healthcare provider first before trying CBD. Combining CBD with certain anti-anxiety pharmaceuticals can exacerbate the undesirable side effects. However, it is important to work with your doctor to find the right comprehensive treatment for your anxiety.
Tip: Try taking our Balance Tincture sublingually and holding the oil under your tongue for at least 60 to 90 seconds for quicker relief.
