CBD gummies provide a convenient, tasty, and easy to use way to get relief from anxiety symptoms without the side effects of prescription drugs. CBD has been found to relieve inflammation and pain in many people with no adverse side effects. CBD is legal in all 50 states because it’s derived from hemp plants – not marijuana plants.
What are cbd gummies?
cbd gummies for sleep and anxiety are sugar free candies that contain cannabidiol, also known as CBD oil, as the active ingredient. CBD is a phyto-cannabinoid (phyto- from plant). It’s found in hemp plants, marijuana and even fruits like mango and pineapple. In this article I’ll explain how CBD works and why it’s considered a medical miracle that can help with so many things including anxiety.
How does it work?
Natural supplements like CBD gummies work by activating cannabinoid receptors naturally present in the body. These receptors are found where people experience pain, anxiety, and inflammation throughout the body resulting in the feeling of being “high”. This activation of these natural cannabinoid receptors gives one feeling of calm and relaxation while enhancing brain functions such as attention and focus, providing relief from feelings of stress, and reducing inflammation.
The anxiety connection
Anxiety is a debilitating condition that affects millions of people, making it hard to enjoy life. But what’s even more frustrating is the amount of dangerous prescription drugs currently being prescribed for anxiety, depression and insomnia. Prescription pill addiction and overdose has become a reoccurring problem in the United States and around the globe.
How many people take prescription pills?
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse 3 out of 4 Americans have used prescription drugs recreationally or to deal with day-to-day stressors. There are roughly 20,000 deaths related to prescription drug overdose every year. 40% of those dying are between 20 and 39 years old. I should also note that prescription drugs and alcohol are now responsible for more deaths than car accidents.
How many people are addicted to prescription pills?
In the US alone there are 20 million people addicted to their prescriptions. Addiction is a pattern of compulsive and out-of-control drug use. The number of people addicted to prescription opiates, a class of painkillers, has quadrupled since 1999 according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Many addiction specialists believe that 40 million Americans will be addicted to illicit drugs or alcohol at some point in their lives.
In 2016 it was estimated that 2 million Americans were suffering from opiate addiction. This includes not only prescription drug abuse but heroine addiction as well. There were just under 10,000 drug overdose deaths in the US in 2016. Opiate addiction accounted for the largest portion at 8,235 deaths. Heroin and synthetic opiates like fentanyl are killing people at a rapid rate.
Do prescription pills have any side effects?
Yes! Some prescription pills can have major side effects that include addiction, dependence and even death. As a result of these risks many people are turning to natural remedies such as CBD gummies as another alternative to prescription drugs. Just like with any supplement or medicine you should consult your doctor before starting CBD gummies or taking any other medication to ensure that the supplement is safe and effective for your individual health needs.
