Anxiety and panic disorder
Anxiety and panic disorders are very common, having reached epidemic proportions. Combined they affect an estimated 2.4 million Americans. That means that one in 113 Americans suffer from these crippling conditions. The causes for these disorders are as varied as the people who are effected by them. Sometimes it simply has a physical source. More often then not the disorders are brought on due to emotional issues. Contributing to this disorder are environmental factors, one of the most important of which is poor nutrition. Sugar, processed foods, junk foods, fast foods, etc., all contribute to its devastating effects.
I had the pleasure of trying a cannabis CBD product when I had a recent panic attack. I instantly felt my pulse slow down and my mind got that familiar calming sensation associated with Xanax. Yet it didn’t affect my ability to think or do tasks but it did lower my heart rate noticeably and that alone slowed my breathing, cleared my mind and after 10 minutes I laughed at how dumb I looked during my panic attack- because everything suddenly felt right again.
I no longer suffer from almost daily panic attacks and Anxiety after I changed my eating habits and found the wonders of cannabis. I also no longer am in a mindless pill fog.
