1. The FDA's Instructions for the Use and Dosage of CBD Softgels in the Treatment of Anxiety Disorders
CBD softgels have not been licensed by the Food and Drug Administration for the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, therapy, or prevention of any disease. We are unable to make any assumptions about the effectiveness of our CBD softgels in the treatment or cure of any illness or medical problem, including anxiety disorders.
Neither of the products or data made available to the general populace is aimed to be a treatment protocol for any disease state, but rather are provided to include data and choices regarding nutritional support for multiple health concerns. Neither of the information presented is aimed to be an enticement to purchase and should not be interpreted as medical advice or guidance. The FDA would like us to alert you that adding dietary supplements to your diet can only be done with the recommendation of a physician.
CBD softgels can aid anxiety in a variety of ways, including by communicating with receptors on nerve cells in the limbic system of the brain, according to scientific evidence. Emotions, fear, and the human stress response are all governed by the limbic system (fight or flight). Adenosine, serotonin, and GABA receptors, among others, have also been shown to interact with CBD softgels. In both animal and human studies, these receptors have been related to anxiety.
CBD's proof as an effective anxiolytic (anxiety-relieving agent) is growing, with positive outcomes in both animal and human trials. “Studies using animal models of anxiety...clearly show an anxiolytic-like influence of CBD softgels,” Brazilian researchers concluded in a 2017 research study. Human studies have also shown value. Anxiety is one of the most important reasons people use CBD, according to polls of CBD users.) Clinical trials have also shown efficacy. Pre-treatment with CBD was shown to decrease self-reported and observable markers of anxiety induced by a simulated public speaking experiment in a 2011 clinical study of people with Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD). CBD softgels were shown to minimize subjectively reported anxiety in another clinical trial performed in 2011 by people with SAD. The decrease in anxiety was related to improvements in behavior in limbic and paralimbic brain regions, which are believed to be correlated with emotions, primarily anxiety, according to functional neuroimaging. When THC and CBD are used together, CBD has been found to counteract the anxiety-inducing effects of THC.
We are unable to provide detailed recommendations on how to use CBD softgels on a specific illness, such as general anxiety or other anxiety-related conditions, due to FDA regulations. Fortunately, determining the minimum effective dosage of CBD softgels for any disease is a straightforward procedure. The use of a Stepwise Dosing technique is the secret to deciding the most appropriate dose.
Stepwise dosing is a method of determining the effective dose by first establishing a baseline dosage and then adjusting it incrementally over a fixed period of time (usually 3 days).
It's important to note that everybody reacts to CBD softgels differently, so there's no one-size-fits-all dosage for all or any disease. You will find the most appropriate dose of CBD softgels for you by using a step-by-step dosing protocol.
Begin with a low standard and work your way up: Establishing a baseline dosage is the first step in determining the minimum effective dose. Since many people have had positive outcomes with CBD softgels at low doses, we recommend starting with a low dose and gradually increasing the dosage until you see results. Start with a low-dose, 2X or 3X daily, beginning with 2-5mg (6-10mg total).
Maintain the current dose for 7 days, noting how the CBD softgels affect the body.
If you are not getting all the benefits you need within the first 7 days of your baseline CBD softgel dose, raise the normal dosage by 1-2mg per 3 days before you find the dosage that fits better for you.
After determining the minimum effective dose, you may want to reduce your dosage by one step to see if you can keep the same benefits at a lower dose.
Essential Note: Most people pursue CBD for a single disorder, only to learn that it improves other aspects of their body as well. Remember that the endocannabinoid system operates on a cellular and subcellular basis in the entire body. CBD is a chemical that affects the whole body. Adhere strictly to everything going on in your body when you first begin taking CBD. Don't be shocked if the dose provides you with a variety of advantages.
Regarding Sleep: Insomnia may be caused by a variety of symptoms or medication side effects. Sleep is essential for the body's healing and recovery. If you suffer from sleep loss, you may want to consider increasing your dose at night to help you get a better night's sleep.
