Recent years have seen a surge in cannabis use as alternative medicine. The primary reasons behind this preference are its fewer side effects, and that cannabis offers a chance to reduce the dosage of psychoactive medication that can be highly addictive.

And even though there’s insufficient scientific evidence to show that cannabis can treat anxiety, existing studies and anecdotal evidence show that edibles may help manage mild generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and anxiety.

With so many edibles available, figuring out which one will help bring back your serenity can be tricky. Keep calm as HIKEI has got you covered! Remember, these products work differently for each user. Also, we recommend speaking to your doctor before including any of these edibles into your daily regimen.

Research on Cannabis and Anxiety

Studies show that Cannabidiol (CBD) has the potential to treat anxiety disorders. For instance, an article posted in the _Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research _journal indicates that CBD may activate the serotonin 5-HT1A receptor at low doses. Moreover, CBD can also inhibit the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) enzyme, resulting in CB1 receptor activation. This reaction produces a therapeutic effect by lowering anxiety-related symptoms.

Other studies on cannabis and anxiety emphasize the need to take low dosages. Remember, for some users high concentration of THC can exacerbate anxiety. Therefore, experts recommend opting for low THC level products.

Edibles for Anxiety

There are several reasons why you might enjoy taking edibles for anxiety.

  • These products are lowkey. Typically edibles come in the form of gummies, chocolate bars, drinks, and baked goods. And unless people see the packaging, no one can tell that you are indulging in some CBD goodies. Plus, no need to worry about walking around with the ‘I just smoked weed’ sign because these goodies do not have a strong odor.
  • Edibles offer precise dosing. If you pick any of HIKEI’s products, you’ll notice instructions on proper dosage.
  • Enduring effects. Another benefit of edibles is that absorption takes longer. The results also last longer, providing relief over a long period.
