Anxiety is on the rise in the UK as new research commissioned by Dragonfly CBD®, the evidence backed CBD range, has revealed how 48 per cent of people feel more stressed than they did a year ago. With the advent of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, the chances are that even more of us are feeling anxious.
On the one hand we all have to take precautionary measures to protect our health and our children and on the other we see as we scroll down our social media platforms people who have used the time during the pandemic to do amazing things from learning to rewire a house to taking up portrait painting or whatever and think less of ourselves in comparison. Plus our diet, sleep, stress levels, exercise and relationships have been placed under the spotlight since COVID-19 struck. Seeking medical help has also become more difficult with GPs often offering only telephone conversations and the awiting time can be long.
Community pharmacist, Sultan ‘Sid’ Dajani, says that: “When seeking remedies for anxiety and stress, these can typically be time-intensive and often involve long NHS waiting times. However, there are solutions available over the counter, such as CBD oils Dragonfly CBD® oil, which helps reduce negative effects associated with stress and anxiety.”
The new data states how 62 per cent of respondents would try a safe, natural therapy to reduce this stress, and Dragonfly CBD® fits the bill. Studies have proven how CBD has been shown to reduce conditioned fear and anxiety. There’s even evidence, which emerged from a double-blind placebo-controlled study with social anxiety disorder, which found that treatment with CBD before simulated public speaking actually reduced anxiety in speech performance.
This 100 per cent organic, science backed solution comes from the hemp plant, known as Cannabis Sativa L. However, it’s important to note that CBD doesn’t induce the "high" often associated with cannabis as it’s free from Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Dragonfly CBD® guarantees that all their products are THC free. With cutting edge extraction and formulation techniques, all Dragonfly CBD® products are independently tested for quality and safety, so you can feel reassured that they are using the very best in class when it comes to quality and safety.
Dragonfly CBD® is simple to take: a few drops under the tongue and hold for a couple of minutes before swallowing to aid absorption.
