Social anxiety presents a real and chronic threat to individual health and wellbeing. The simplest tasks turn into insurmountable obstacles, panic overwhelms, and isolation occurs. If you have ever felt like everyone is talking about you, or looking at you, or judging you, then imagine that feeling multiplied and compounded by every second of every day. That gives you just a glimpse into the mind of someone with social anxiety. Want to learn more about cannabis and anxiety? Check out our selection of the best vapes for anxiety.
Social Anxiety Disorder, or SAD, affects millions of people. A phobia of making mistakes, being judged, or criticized, only gets compounded for those lacking social skills or life experience. It builds from a low background agitation into full blown panic attacks.
To avoid this fear, people with SAD isolate themselves, shutting out the outside world, even friends & family. They avoid group activities, public places, dating, or even eating and drinking in view of others.
The symptoms manifest days, weeks, or even months before the situation even arises. They include physical discomfort, including rapid heartbeat, confusion, shaking, tension, upset stomach, and diarrhea.
For relaxation, calming nerves, and soothing psyches, cannabis can work wonders. A few puffs and that awkwardness disappears. Studies and personal testimonies show that it helps with many forms of anxiety, depression, and stress. But until it becomes socially and federally legal, there remain limits on who can use it, and where.
For those with SAD, the stigmas around cannabis could potentially exacerbate their sense of being judged and looked down on. In addition, for those already prone to paranoia, or unused to cannabis, it can make the panic even greater. If the best medicine remains taboo and incites further paranoia over the opinions of others, what other choice remains?
If the stigma or potency of cannabis leaves you or a loved one worse for wear, try 1Hour Break®. 1Hour Break’s highly concentrated extracts of organic Kava Kava, Passion flower, Lemon balm, and Lobelia herbs help you shrug off anxiety and feel confident.
Before stepping out the door or anytime you feel the panic rising, spray 5 sprays (about 1ml) of 1Hour Break® beneath your tongue. Close your eyes and count to ten, then swallow. The powerful calming effects come on immediately because it is absorbed underneath the tongue and bypasses the digestive system.
Imagine experiencing a strong, uplifting, clear-headed calm that pushes away fear. Go out and live life again with Mother Nature’s love and acceptance, and feel serene confidence.
