CBD for Stress Relief

HEMP Products » Stress Relief
Since the boom of CBD products, CBD oils have been widely used against anxiety. Scientific evidence supports this benefit, with a few studies strengthening CBD's positive effects on a number of anxiety-related disorders. 

Can CBD Be Used to Treat Anxiety in Animals? 

Animals have similar to the humans' endocannabinoid system (ECS). So CBD works in our pets the same way it works for us humans, changing the brain receptor response to serotonin responsible for anxiety. So when giving CBD oil to pets, for example, they also benefit from relaxation without any intoxication. 

CBD Products for Stress Relief 

FDA is on the way to approving CBD-based remedies for stress and anxiety. Despite this, many studies are showing the compound can be a potent anxiolytic (anxiety relief medication). Here's what the science says regarding CBD's properties to treat anxiety. 


A small study was conducted in 2011 on people with a social anxiety disorder (SAD). Participants showed reduced anxiety levels when taking an anxiety test known as a simulated public speaking test (SPST).  In 2019, three CBD doses were tested – 150 mg, 300 mg, and 600 mg. 300 mg of CBD decreased anxiety during SPST, while the 150 mg and 600 mg doses didn't make any difference. This made the scientists conclude that more CBD doesn't hinge on larger dosages, but they are rather very individual.  In a  2019 study, lower dosages were used – 25 mg, 50 mg, and 75 mg. Even with a smaller dosage than in previous studies, participants reported lowered anxiety levels and better sleep.

CBD for Stress and Depression

The results of CBD oil at different doses were trialed among 397 participants with various illnesses, excluding only people with cancer. As a result, patients with depression reported feeling better, and they even could perform their routine activities. These groups also said they experienced pain relief

CBD for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

A limited study that covered 11 participants revealed that when taken orally as a supplemental therapy alongside traditional mental care, CBD mitigated participants' PTSD signs intensity.  Other research papers suggest that CBD with a combination of THC creates an "entourage effect," thus, helping fight PTSD symptoms.  Several studies suggest that CBD therapy may be effective for people with a phobia

Which CBD Products Can Be Used for Stress Relief?

We are all different, which means that the CBD use for stress relief is very individual. For instance, you may discover that gummies are more effective than oils or vice versa. In general, you can take CBD in these formulations described below: 
  • Oils and tinctures in a dropper bottle to be taken orally
  • Gummies are chewable and usually fruit-flavored
  • Flowers, dried buds that are typically smoked 
  • Creams and balms are topical products used to apply to the skin
  • Vapes, use CBD oils to inhale the vapor
  • Nozzle mouth sprays
  • Capsules are other edibles that are consumed by the mouth
Some CBD forms work faster than others. For example, unlike gummies, CBD oil is better absorbed into our bloodstream through the sublingual intake. 

CBD Dosage for Stress Relief 

At Happy Garden, we suggest starting with small doses and increasing them slowly. From the clinical trial mentioned earlier, we saw that successful doses vary from high to low. People with SAD used a 300 mg and 600 mg dosage. Yet, other studies report the effectiveness of lower dosages from 25 mg to 75 mg for sleep enhancement and general anxiety. Doses of 33 mg to 49 mg proved beneficial for patients with PTSD who also underwent psychiatric treatment.  One study testing hundreds of participants reported significant improvement with doses ranging from 4 mg to 300 mg a day.  These studies suggest that the dosage is different for each person and rests on factors such as a person's symptoms, body chemistry, weight, etc. 

Are There Any Risks and Side Effects?

The World Health Organization (WHO) stated that CBD is generally safe for most people. They reported only few side effects.  However, CBD can interact with other medications you may take and lead to adverse events, such as drowsiness, fatigue, diarrhea, changes in appetite and weight, and nausea. When using CBD, caution should be exercised by people with underlying liver issues and those who undergo treatment that cause liver damage. So if you have an underlying health condition and suffer anxiety, our advice is to consult your doctor before taking any CBD products. 

Happy Garden CBD Products for Stress Relief

Happy Garden offers three main products to manage stress and anxiety. These are CBD oils, CBD-infused gummies, and CBD balms. 
  • CBD oils. Our CBD oils come in several doses, 5%, 105, 15%, 20% and 24%. For those new to CBD, we recommend starting with low doses and shifting later to high-dosage oils. 
  • CBD gummies. This product features 15 mg and 25 mg of CBD per gummy. They are extracted from the hemp plant and infused with the CBD molecule. The gummies are a convenient and precise way to take cannabidiol on the go.

All our products are made in the US and have a certificate of third-party testing. The THC levels don't exceed 0.3%, legal under US laws. 

CBD may be able to help you manage anxiety. For example, one study by the data source found that a 600-megabyte CBD dose helped people with social anxiety deliver a speech.
