Times are difficult. People are under a lot of stress, and no one can say with any certainty how long this pandemic is going to last.
Even if you’re not generally anxious, you have every right to be a little freaked out in a situation like this.
One of the most studied effects of Hemp is its ability to act as an anxiolytic, which means that it can be used to battle anxiety.
What’s also important in relation to the coronavirus is that Hemp isn’t a psychotropic compound, and it doesn’t alter a person’s mental state, like for instance THC.
This means that you’ll keep your composure while consuming Hemp, and will definitely remember to wash your hands and every other sanitary protocol that we’re currently obliged to follow.
We’re going to go over several studies that deal with the relationship of Hemp and anxiety, and afterward, we’ll discuss adequate dosing.
A scientific review from 2014 analyzed several animal studies investigating Hemp for anxiety and depression and noted that Hemp exhibits both an anti-anxiety and an antidepressant effect.
A review from 2015 was determining the potential of Hemp for various anxiety-related disorders.
The researchers found that the preclinical evidence strongly suggests that Hemp can be used to combat several disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
They also noted that the research on humans supports the anxiolytic effect of Hemp and that this compound has minimal sedative effects and an excellent safety profile.
This 2017 review was looking into the anti-panic traits of Hemp.
Analyzing both animal studies and research performed on healthy volunteers, the review noted that Hemp clearly has an anti-anxiety effect and that it’s a promising compound for the treatment of panic disorders.
