Understand the Potential Benefits of CBD for Stress

by | Sep 28, 2021 | CBD 101 | 0 comments

Since the rollout of the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp, more research has been conducted on the potential health effects of cannabidiol, including the use of CBD for stress relief. If you suffer from stress and anxiety, products containing CBD may help relieve some of your symptoms.

 

 

Research on CBD and Stress

More and more studies are conducted on the impact of CBD for stress and anxiety, as well as other psychological disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder. One such New Zealand study showed potential benefits of CBD to relieve anxiety, pain, and depression with limited adverse side effects and the potential to improve sleep and appetite.

While studies continue to examine appropriate dosing and more controlled studies, anecdotally, the evidence adds up. Cannabidiol is one of many compounds naturally occurring in hemp plants and is non-psychoactive, meaning it does not produce a high or feelings of intoxication. It does have the potential to increase feelings of well-being, calm, and sleepiness. 

Some studies show the effectiveness of cannabis for treating anxiety and sleep. Across all studies, more data is needed to determine optimal dosing for using CBD for stress and anxiety.

 

Where to Start: CBD for Stress Relief

If you’re interested in trying CBD for stress, first consult with your doctor and determine if CBD will interact with any of your medications. Then, consider trying a “low and slow” method—start with a low dosage to determine the effects of CBD on your stress and anxiety levels. If you’re feeling limited to no benefits, consider trying a higher dosage. Remember: you can always take more later. 

 

CBD that contains less than 0.3% tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is legal in the United States. Haygood, like other CBD companies, lists the contents of its products through a Certificate of Analysis, which can be viewed on our website.

CBD Products for Clarity and Relaxation

If you’re interested in trying CBD for stress and anxiety relief, first consider how you’d like to consume the product. 

  • Smokable flower offers an immediate onset for relief of symptoms with a two to six hour window of effects. 

  • When swallowed as an oil, taken as a capsule or eaten as a gummy, expect an onset of one to two hours and up to a six hour window of effects.

 

    Haygood offers a variety of CBD products for stress, featuring our farm’s full-spectrum organic hemp. 

    • Our Be Good Relaxation Capsules blend CBD and other stress-relieving botanicals, including ashwagandha and passion flower, for a direct dose that supports the nervous system. 

    • Full-spectrum hemp oil provides relief with variable dosing based on your preferred strength. This is a great starter product for someone just starting with CBD for stress relief, as doses can easily be scaled down.

    • Haygood Immune Support Gummies deliver 20mg of CBD per gummy paired with immune-boosting botanicals like elderberry.
