cbd for anxiety and stress slider


Research suggests that CBD may have a positive effect on anxiety and could be used to support treatments for a variety conditions. CBD (Cannabidiol) is a chemical compound present in the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa). CBD is natural plant extract and manufacturers such as Hemp Well can combine CBD with an oil, cream or balm. People can purchase CBD oil as a food supplement in the UK and most other counties.

Dawn Snape, Assistant Director of Sustainability and Inequalities Division, says on the UK governments Office for National Statistics:

“There is understandable concern about the impact of the pandemic on people’s well-being. Our figures show that the equivalent of 19 million adults in Great Britain report high levels of anxiety. One particularly striking finding is that 39% of people who are married or in a civil partnership, reported high levels of anxiety. This compares with 19% pre-pandemic. It may in part be because of the challenges of home-schooling alongside work and other responsibilities.

Another marked change is in those aged 65 years or older. Prior to the coronavirus pandemic we consistently saw lower anxiety ratings in those aged 65 years and older, but now we are seeing the highest levels of anxiety amongst this group in lockdown.”

CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is a chemical compound naturally occurring in the hemp plant, Cannabis Sativa. It can be taken orally (as a tablet, capsule or gummy), sublingually (under the tongue as a tincture) or topically (applied to the skin as a cream) to deliver a wide range of benefits.

CBD or Cannabidiol is legal in the UK, provided it comes from an industrial hemp strain that is EU approved and contains no THC, but you need to make sure you are getting it from a trusted source. Hemp Well organic CBD comes from EU certified hemp grown at our own farm, processed and lab tested to make sure it is pure and contains accurate dosages. We control the process from seed to shelf so that you can be confident you are getting a high quality, fully traceable product.

The human body contains a complex network of neurotransmitters and cannabinoid receptors known as the endocannabinoid receptor system (ECS). Research suggests that cannabinoids and the ECS may play a role in many bodily processes including anxiety, stress and mood.


One of the heavily researched areas of CBD is how it may affect anxiety and stress disorders. Several studies point to the potential benefits of CBD for anxiety.

Generalized Anxiety

For generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) says that CBD has been shown to reduce stress in animals such as rats. Study subjects were observed as having lower behavioral signs of anxiety. Their physiological symptoms of anxiety, such as increased heart rate, also improved.

More research needs to be done, specifically on humans and GAD. For other forms of anxiety CBD may also benefit people with other forms of anxiety, such as social anxiety disorder (SAD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It may help treat anxiety-induced insomnia as well. In 2011, a study researched CBD’s effects on people with SAD. Participants were given an oral dose of 400 milligrams (mg) of CBD or a placebo.

Those who received CBD experienced overall reduced anxiety levels. Multiple recent studies have shown that CBD can help with PTSD symptoms, such as having nightmares and replaying negative memories. These studies have looked at CBD as both a standalone PTSD treatment as well as a supplement to traditional treatments like medication and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Clinical Study Shows CBD Has Anti-Anxiety Affect On Public Speakers

A clinical study conducted in 2018 investigating how CBD interacts with people with Public Speaking anxiety, found that compared to placebo, pretreatment with 300 mg of CBD significantly reduced anxiety during the speech. This was only a small study conducted on 57 males, but the conclusion was that the findings confirmed the anti-anxiety-like properties of CBD and are consonant with results of animal studies. As with most early studied on CBD, the sample size was small and more research still needs to be undertaken.

FAQs: CBD for Anxiety and Stress

Does CBD help anxiety?

Yes. Research has found CBD to be an effective anti-anxiety agent. While more information is needed in clinical experiments, many studies have shown the benefits of CBD in managing a variety of anxiety-related disorders.

Does CBD stop stress?

While CBD cannot simply “stop” stress, it can be effective at dealing with the underlying causes. 

What dose of CBD should I take for anxiety?

Everyone’s dosage can be different and it’s important to find the right amount of you. When you first order with us, you’ll receive a free leaflet with a CBD diary on the back, to help you track which dosage works for you. Feel free to contact us anytime to talk about your dosage, we are always happy to help.

Is CBD legal in the UK?

These reports are always available to view on our website, and we’re proud to be one of the first companies to have their products listed on the FSA’s new approved CBD products list. When you buy CBD from HempWell, you can rest assured that you’re receiving high quality, ethical CBD products.

Can I take CBD for anxiety or stress while on medication?

Consult your doctor if you’re thinking of taking CBD while on medication.

How long does CBD take to work?

CBD has short and long term effects. In the short term, depending on how you choose to take CBD, you will begin to feel effects from anywhere between 10 minutes and 2 hours. However, CBD can also have a longer term effect on you and your body. As you continue to take CBD, some will stay in your body, and slowly build up to further help your endocannabinoid system. As a rule of thumb, we recommend that you use CBD consistently for at least 2 weeks to begin to see the full effects of our products.

Can I give CBD to my pet?

You can give CBD to pets, but be aware they need a much smaller dose than humans. CBD is becoming increasingly popular to help pets with anxiety, however be aware that much less research has been done into CBD in animals than in humans. If you are planning to give CBD to your pet, start with an extremely low dose, and increase slowly up to a full dose if required. We do not recommend giving CBD to any animals smaller than cats. We recommend consulting with your vet before giving CBD to animals.
