If you live with anxiety, you might be wondering does vaping help with anxiety. Anxiety is a normal part of life that almost everyone experiences at one point or another. Unfortunately, anxiety can take over, causing crippling effects. These effects can take a toll on personal, home, and work life.
According to the Mental Health Foundation, “Polling of 6000 UK adults (conducted on our behalf by Opinium) found that nearly three-quarters of the population (73%) had felt anxious at least sometimes in the previous two weeks, while more than a quarter (26%) of those with feelings of anxiety felt anxious to the extent that it stopped them from doing what they’d like or need to do.”
When anxiety strikes, a person can experience difficulties breathing, feelings of nervousness, jitters or shaking, heavy sweating, and in some severe cases, even pain. Anxiety can strike anywhere at any time. There are various different situations and circumstances that trigger intense emotional responses leading to anxiety attacks.
According to online sources, “Sertraline is one of the most commonly prescribed anxiety medications in the UK.” Medline Plus says some of the possible side effects of Sertraline are sour stomach, belching, decreased appetite, weight loss, diarrhoea, loose stools, heartburn, sleepiness, unusual drowsiness, stomach cramps, gas, or trouble sleeping. How does this help anxiety again? It’s easy to see why people turn to CBD to help with anxiety.
Vaping CBD may help with your anxiety by promoting calm feelings from a combination of terpenes and cannabinoids found in CBD cannabis vapes. CBD vapes are available in four basic varieties with multitudes of different flavours and strengths. If you want to avoid THC altogether, you can still try vaping cannabis for anxiety by using a CBD isolate vape pen. To get the best effect you will want to ensure you use the best temperature to vape CBD oil for calming effects.
CBD isolate has had all other cannabinoids and terpenes removed, leaving behind 99% pure CBD. Broad-spectrum CBD offers all terpenes and cannabinoids except for THC. Full spectrum CBD offers all terpenes and cannabinoids, including minor amounts of THC not to exceed more than one mg per container or package. Full spectrum CBD is often found in the best CBD vape cartridges. Then there is wide spectrum CBD.
Wide spectrum CBD has the most legal THC you can get in the UK. It's packed with CBD, THCA, Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC, THCV, CBN, CBG, CBC, and more, making this a great option when you're looking for calming effects. If CBD can help you with the symptoms of pain, lack of sleep, nausea, and more, it may also help at managing anxiety.
