Cannabidiol for universal anxiety relief
CBD anxiety relief time
When someone has an anxiety attack, the shortest relief time is required. Because the relief time depends on the CBD intake method, we recommend to chose the quickest absorption to the body. This is realized by sublingual intake, or in other words by putting the CBD oil drops under your tongue.
Exactly how soon you start feeling your anxiety or panic to recede, depends on your bodies metabolism, but roughly you are looking at 15 minutes to half an hour. If you want to avoid the taste of the oil and mix it into your salad or other food, or use any other way by which the CBD is going through your digestive system, you are looking at a significantly longer relief time, because the route is much longer. Generally, it will take a couple of hours before you start feeling relief.
CBD oil dosing for anxiety
In order to mitigate or relief mild anxiety a daily cannabidiol dosage of 15-20 mg per day is recommended. This is the same dosage that is recommended to maintain your general health. However, for severe anxiety disorder cases or panic attacks, the dosage needs to be increased.
This needs to be tested by each individual and the following factors need to be taken into account when experimenting with higher dosages:
- Someone that has never taken CBD or cannabis needs to get used to CBD first and needs to increase dosing gradually. Although generally there are no side- or overdosing effects (see next points) you might feel it a little when ramping up too quickly.
- CBD has no significant side-effects to take into account when increasing dosing. A CBD-beginner, when taking too large dosages too soon, might experience slight lightheadedness or dizziness due to the lower blood pressure that CBD initially causes.
- CBD has no significant over-dosing effects apart from the above-mentioned side effects when taking too much too soon. Cannabidiol poses no threat to our health at any dosing size, even with extreme dosages of 1500 mg daily.
With severe cases of anxiety when it is desirable to help patients calm down and find relief from anxiety often treatment is started with a higher dosage (30 – 40 mg daily) for the first three or four days. This will provide the patient with a calm mind quickly after which the dosage can be reduced to the normal daily dosage mentioned above of 15-20 mg.
CBD also is used with other medical conditions, for example, in combination with a cannabis (THC) oil dosage to cure cancer. In that case, the cannabis oil has the lead healing effect but CBD oil for cancer treatment helps mitigate pain, nausea, and vomiting related to cancer.

CBD anxiety treatment for children
As you already have read from the medical tests and case studies, that CBD has been successfully applied in cases of child anxiety. Usually, our little loved-ones suffer from anxiety due to traumatic events or accidents, that cause them to panic or prevent them to sleep well or sleep at all.
Feeding your child with big pharma anti-depressants that we know are destructive to grown-ups, let alone children, in the long run, is for many parents, not the desired scenario. Research proves that CBD can gradually improve the mental health of anxiety affected children.
Anxiety with pets, CBD treatment
Anxiety is in fact also very common among pets. Especially dogs these days suffer more often from anxiety. Because pets, and in fact almost any animal on our planet, have the same endocannabinoid systems as humans, CBD works just as well with them.
If your dog is a nervous wreck, it might dramatically shorten his life. So, don’t let your furry friend suffer. Cannabidiol for dogs has proven to be a natural solution to dog anxiety, as well as with other pets.
