General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Generalized Anxiety Disorder Overview

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is excessive, continuous tension that obstructs the daily activities of 3 million people each year in the United States. GAD can develop at any age with symptoms common to obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and other various forms of anxiety.

Living with GAD can last for years, or even an entire lifetime, with experiences in restlessness, concentration difficulties, and never-ending worries.

Case Developments

Studies have provided evidence that supports CBD as a viable treatment for anxiety. Reports indicate CBD directly affects paralimbic and limbic brain areas which causes a decrease in anxiety without any consciousness-shifting, psychoactive effects. Two recent tests from a published journal at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine proved a correlation between low-dose CBD and reductions in personal anxiety; results implied CBD helps those living with GAD and other types of anxiety endure stress-provoking situations .
