In our increasingly busy world, it’s so easy to get stressed over the demands of everyday life. But sometimes that stress compounds because of a tough job, difficult personal relationships or just the craziness of life. If you have that feeling of always being ‘stressed out’, you may be suffering from chronic anxiety and need treatment to rebalance your mental wellbeing.

Unfortunately, modern medicine has been historically bad at diagnosing and treating anxiety. As a result, millions are looking to natural alternatives, like CBD oil and CBD oil capsules to treat their chronic anxiety. 

There’s real science to indicate that CBD oil can provide real relief from chronic anxiety. And while there’s still a ways to go in conducting more comprehensive research, we have early evidence that CBD is helpful in treating:
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
In this guide, we’ll walk you through what anxiety is, how CBD works, why it’s good at treating stress, and our favourite UK CBD product for relieving anxiety. 

What Causes Chronic Anxiety 

In 2013, there were 8.2 million cases of anxiety in the UK. Anxiety includes feelings of fear and apprehension to whatever is going on in your life. It can make it tough to sleep, focus on the task at hand and even prompt unwanted physical reactions. 

Our genetics is one reason why we get anxious. Changes in hormones and neurotransmitters can cause significant changes in mood and impact our response to normal stress. Environmental toxins also play a big role in our mental wellbeing. 

However, external stress is by far the most common reason for chronic anxiety. Your brain tries to get you to think about the stress in your life so you can predict and remove it in the future. 

This makes sense because if we were still living in nature, it’s helpful to feel stress when we’re running into bears or avoiding quicksand. But in the modern world, we’re always walking into anxious situations where we need to be our best self. And instead of dodging danger, we struggle with the constant feelings that we might be better off just escaping to a tropical paradise. 

How Does Chronic Anxiety Affect You?

The consequence of chronic anxiety is our body is in a constant state of panic. Consequently, our body produces high levels of stress hormones – especially cortisol – that wreak havoc. Issues that high levels of stress hormones promotes includes: 
  • Depression
  • Heart disease
  • Digestive problems
  • Weakened immune system
  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches
  • Muscular tension
  • Endocannabinoid imbalance
The good news? There’s a natural treatment to find relief from these very serious symptoms. 

CBD and Anxiety

Ask any regular CBD user and they’ll tell you how much help its been in relieving their anxiety. But it’s not just anecdotal testimonies arguing the benefits of CBD, there’s a growing body of science showing that CBD works! A recent review on 32 different rodent CBD studies found that CBD helped treat anxiety in all but one. 

Human studies are expensive and bureaucratic so no surprise many haven’t been done yet but this is a promising first step and hopefully will lead to more research. Here’s a rundown on what the rodent and human studies found:
  • Decreased anxiety in response to stress: Experiments found that anxiety in response to stress decreases when using CBD.
    • Rodent evidence: In one example, mice were placed in a cage with a boa constrictor. Mice given low doses of CBD (equivalent to a 20 mg dosage for a 150-pound person) spent more time choosing the most best location to avoid in the boa constrictor instead of panicking.
    • Human evidence: Through a simulation of public speaking, CBD reduces stress both for people without anxiety disorders and also for people with social anxiety disorder.
Using CBD to Treat Anxiety

Our Fog Clarity CBD soft gels were scientifically formulated to reduce anxiety and restore balance in your life. As suggested by the research described above, we dosed our capsules at 25mg to provide maximum relief. We take 1-2 capsules every morning to get us ready for the day. 

While Clarity isn’t a cure for your anxiety, it’s a highly effective and convenient tool to help you cope when you need it most. 


The capsules are all-natural and independently tested to ensure the highest quality and efficacy. And the broad spectrum hemp we use is shown to be particularly effective at activating your Endocannabinoid System and reducing chronic stress. 

If you choose to use Clarity to relieve anxiety, we recommend doing it as part of a more comprehensive anxiety treatment plan. We encourage you to speak with a specialist about this, especially if you’re already on medication. 

We hope you find balance on your journey towards whole wellbeing.
