Do CBD Products Work For Anxiety?

👍 Share:

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States, affecting 40 million adults aged 18 and older [1]. That's about 18% of the population — unfortunately, that number is rising.

Anxiety is a normal emotion that we all experience at times — it's that feeling of unease, worry, or fear. For most people, anxiety is temporary, but for others, anxiety can be long-lasting and interfere with day-to-day life.

While there are many pharmaceutical options for treating anxiety, they tend to come with a long list of side effects. As a result, many people turn to non-pharmaceutical treatments such as therapy, nutrition, and CBD products for anxiety.

At Neurogan, we're proud to be a household name our customers trust to support their mental health and well-being.

The Research Behind CBD Products For Anxiety

A growing body of research has examined the efficacy of CBD for anxiety and stress relief, with mixed results. Some studies have found that CBD effectively reduces anxiety symptoms, while others have not found significant effects.

However, most research on CBD for anxiety has been conducted in animal models, so more research is needed to confirm these findings in humans. This is likely due to the many factors that go into the underlying causes of mental illnesses and how CBD and other cannabinoids work in the body.

So how do CBD products exert their effects?

CBD and other hemp-derived cannabinoids work by supporting a system in our body that's designed to keep our vital functions in a state of balance (homeostasis) called the endocannabinoid system (ECS).

CBD interacts with this system by binding to receptors in the ECS found throughout the body.

This interaction helps to modulate various physiological functions, including inflammation, pain perception, anxiety, and more [2]. Additionally, CBD (and other cannabinoids) have potent antioxidant and neuroprotectant potential, which may help protect cells from damage and support brain health [3].

When it comes to managing stress, CBD has been shown to increase GABA activity in the brain, a neurotransmitter involved in slowing down the physiological stress response [4].

Overall, most research and anecdotal reports of CBD oil for anxiety suggest that CBD may be a promising treatment for anxiety and stress. Still, more clinical studies are needed to confirm these findings before we see CBD products for anxiety approved by the FDA.

5 Best CBD Products For Anxiety

CBD products to help with anxiety


Neurogan CBD and our other cannabinoids are derived from organic, non-GMO hemp plants grown on the Pacific Coast and CO2 extracted for potency and purity.

Each batch is third-party lab tested to ensure they meet the highest standards for quality and safety.

Because CBD and other cannabinoids work on the endocannabinoid system to support homeostasis, many people can experience different effects from their CBD.

So it may take some experimentation with CBD products until you find something that works, which is why we have many options available.

Based on our valued customer feedback, we've compiled a list of our top CBD products for anxiety, along with tips on how to make the most of the cannabis plant.

If you don't find something that will fit your needs, don't hesitate to contact the team — We're always happy to chat about all things hemp, especially if that means we can find something that will help you feel your best.

Signs & Symptoms Of Anxiety Disorders

While many different types of anxiety disorders can present with unique symptoms, they all have one thing in common: they cause intense and chronic feelings of fear, worry, and unease.

There are a variety of symptoms that can signal an anxiety disorder, including:

  • Persistent and excessive worry about everyday events or activities

  • Panic attacks (heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sweating, trembling, and feeling dizzy or lightheaded)

  • Social anxiety (extreme fear of social situations or performance)

  • Specific phobias (irrational fear of specific objects or situations)

  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (intrusive thoughts and repetitive behaviors)

People with anxiety disorders often have comorbid depression, which means that they experience both conditions at the same time. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms regularly, it's important to seek professional help.

Anxiety disorders can be treated with medication and therapy people with anxiety disorders should see a doctor for an evaluation to rule out other conditions. There is no single cause for anxiety disorders, but they are thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Treatment can help people manage their symptoms and live normal life.

A mental health professional can diagnose an anxiety disorder and create a treatment plan to help you manage your symptoms.

What To Look For In Calming CBD Oil For Anxiety

CBD products are available in various forms, including cbd oils, tinctures, cbd pills, and cbd edibles — but not all CBD products are created equal.

To ensure your safety and that your money is well spent, it's worth researching the best CBD oils to support your wellness goals.

Once you have found a product that meets the following criteria, start with a low dose and increase gradually as needed. This will help you avoid any potential side effects and ensure that you take the right amount of CBD for your needs.

While more research is needed to confirm the effectiveness of CBD products for anxiety, there are plenty of anecdotal accounts of peopling finding relief in taking CBD products.

Here are our tips for shipping the best calming CBD oil.

Full Spectrum CBD Oil Or Broad Spectrum CBD Oil

You'll encounter three extract types when shopping for CBD products for anxiety: full spectrum CBD oil, broad spectrum CBD oil, and CBD isolate.

CBD isolate only contains one active ingredient from the hemp plant — CBD.

While full spectrum and broad spectrum CBD contains a range of minor cannabinoids and terpenes that help to balance and amplify the effects of CBD in the endocannabinoid system through the entourage effect.

Full spectrum CBD oil may contain up to 0.3% THC — this amount isn't enough to produce psychoactive effects. Still, research suggests it can contribute to the potential benefits of CBD in the endocannabinoid system [5]. If you're looking for a completely THC-free product, broad spectrum CBD is the way to go.

American-Farmed Hemp

The USA has strict agricultural standards when it comes to organic hemp farming.

At Neurogan, we believe that high-quality CBD products start at the seed, which is why we only source premium organic, sun-grown hemp grown on the West Coast.

To ensure we get a high cannabinoid yield without any nasty chemicals, we use supercritical CO2 extraction methods, which is the gold standard for reputable CBD companies.

High-Quality Ingredients

While the CBD extract is the star ingredient in CBD products for anxiety, it's not the only ingredient worth looking at in the bottle.

Ensure that the other ingredients, such as carrier oils (hemp seed oil and MCT oil), gummy candy formulas, and flavoring agents, are of high quality.

The right ingredients in your calming CBD oil will help to keep the active cannabinoids shelf-stable for longer and can also play a big role in how well it's absorbed into your body.

High CBD Potency

Most of the research on CBD products for anxiety was studied with high-potency doses.

CBD is found to be a safe and well-tolerated compound in higher doses. However, many CBD oil brands get away with selling CBD products with very low potencies of CBD, which may not have any benefit in treating anxiety.

We recommend shopping for CBD products from companies that offer various strengths for their CBD oils and other products.

This way, you can choose to adjust your dosing requirements within the same brand for the most consistent results.

Third-Party Lab Tested

Third-party testing isn't a legal requirement for selling CBD, most reputable CBD brands opt for this extra step to ensure their CBD products meet safety and quality standards.

At Neurogan, we batch-test all our CBD products in-house and through a non-biased independent lab to ensure that the pure CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes are in the right potencies and to ensure there are no hidden nasty chemicals such as pesticides, solvents, heavy metals, or mold in the final product.

Choosing What Best Fits Into Your Lifestyle

The best CBD products for anxiety will be the ones you can incorporate seamlessly into your everyday routine. This is because cannabinoids work best when taken consistently to support the endocannabinoid system's role in maintaining homeostasis.

Because everyone's endocannabinoid system is unique, you may find that some cannabinoids work better than others for certain wellness goals, which is why at Neurogan, you'll find CBG, CBN, and Delta THC products that may work better than regular calming CBD oil.

Worry-Free Guarantee

We know that choosing the best CBD oil to suit your needs can take some experimentation, and we don't ever want you to feel like you've been tricked by a CBD product, which is why when you shop with Neurogan, you can enjoy a worry-free shopping experience.

We encourage you to connect with our team if you're not completely satisfied with a CBD product. We're happy to replace it for you with a product that can help you feel your best within 30 days of your purchase.

What Are The Safety & Risks Of Using CBD Products For Anxiety

While CBD and other hemp-based cannabinoids are found to be fairly safe and non-toxic, even the best CBD oils have some risks.

Luckily the side effects of taking CBD products for anxiety are mild and temporary and can be mitigated by taking CBD oil tinctures and gummies in the right doses.

Some of the risks of taking CBD products include the following:

  • Drowsiness

  • Dry mouth

  • Headaches

  • Stomach upset

  • Dizziness

It's important to remember that these aren't common effects of high-quality CBD oil, but taking your CBD products in lower doses is still recommended if you're new to cannabinoids and working your way up to higher potencies to reduce the chances of these adverse effects.

If you're under a doctor or psychiatrist's guidance for treating anxiety or depression, you should check with them first before adding CBD products to your routine to make sure it's safe to use for your unique circumstances.
