CBD oil seems like a new big health craze. Everyone is selling it and everyone is taking it. However, it can be really difficult to find an unbiased account of what CBD actually does, how CBD affects your body, and what CBD feels like.
Many people take CBD oil for anxiety attacks. One of the most effective methods of CBD intake for anxiety is via a CBD vape pen because it’s a near immediate absorption for your body. A graduate student who struggles with social anxiety described the feeling of using CBD during an attack as, “My pen makes my muscles relax then in turn my brain begins to slow down and relax as well.” CBD oil uses both acting on serotonin receptors and the ant-inflammatory effects to battle anxiety. The act of relaxing the muscles takes a lot of the physical symptoms of anxiety away and gives your mind less of a reason to react so aggressively, thus combating anxiety.
Is CBD Legal?
It’s not just me taking advantage of the awesome side effects of CBD oil, here are multiple personal accounts of what CBD feels like to others.
As soon as I hit the pillow I was asleep, which is honestly miraculous. I have been taking melatonin for years, but I still stay up for at least an hour trying to get to sleep, then oversleep and miss my alarm the next morning. The quality of my melatonin induced sleep was sound once I fell asleep. However, the next day I would feel groggy for most of the day. While I might have slept a full eight hours, I felt like I could have slept another six easily. When taking CBD I fell into a very deep sleep almost immediately. As someone who frequently has night terrors and never sleeps through the night, it was such an amazing feeling. I felt like I made up for every bad night of sleep that week in one night. Since trying, I have used CBD oil every night after I had a stressful day and my mind won’t stop racing. I also take CBD at night if I had an intense workout to relax and repair. CBD oil feels like it intensifies the normal, natural acts of falling asleep as opposed to creating a drowsiness that puts you to sleep.
Just recently I started my own journey using CBD oil. When I joined the Maku team, they asked me if I had ever tried CBD. I never had so they gave me a bottle and told me to research how it could help me, to see if I could be a good liaison for others’ journeys to CBD enlightenment. Upon researching CBD oil I learned a ton. CBD oil or hemp oil is derived from the hemp plant and contains less the legal limit of THC, .3%. Hemp Oil has many physical benefits, similar to marijuana, but lacks the “high” or psychoactive effects; therefore does not alter your mind. The physical benefits that I found most applicable to my life is that CBD oil helps with pain and sleep.
