Anxiety is a common mental health issue that affects millions of people around the world. From everyday worries to severe panic attacks, it can be difficult to manage anxiety, even with the right therapeutic or medical support.

Although traditional treatments such as medication or therapy can be beneficial for many, more and more people are exploring alternative avenues - such as CBD products.

CBD vape pens/ anxiety pens are a promising option for those looking to manage anxiety symptoms. But what exactly are anxiety pens, and how can CBD pens and other CBD products interact with the body to help with anxiety? That’s what we’ll be exploring today.

Read on for the main potential benefits of CBD vape pens for anxiety, from promoting relaxation to enhancing mood.


What is an Anxiety Pen?

An anxiety pen, also known as a CBD vape pen, is a portable device that allows you to inhale CBD vapours.

CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a compound derived from cannabis plants. There are several ways you can consume CBD - for example, you can place CBD oil under your tongue, take CBD edibles such as gummies, apply topical CBD lotion or balm, or of course, you can vape CBD.

CBD vape pens come in two main types - disposable and reusable. Disposable vape pens are pre-filled with CBD oil and can be thrown away once empty. Reusable pens, however, allow you to refill them with your favourite CBD vape juice.

There are a range of CBD vape juices on the market to choose from. You can choose your favourite strength or flavour. At Orange County CBD, we have CBD vape juices in strengths ranging from 300mg to 2500mg, in flavours such as:

  • Energy Ice
  • Sour Blue Raspberry
  • Rainbow Candy
  • Tobacco
  • Mango Ice

And many more. We also have flavours replicating your favourite strains, from Kush Mint to Orange Cream.


Can CBD Vape Pens Get You High?

In short, no - CBD vape pens will not get you ‘high’. This is because, unlike THC products, CBD does not produce psychoactive effects.

CBD products, particularly those derived from broad-spectrum CBD or CBD isolate, contain little to no THC, ensuring they do not cause psychoactive effects.

Full-spectrum CBD products may contain trace amounts of THC, but not enough to produce intoxicating effects.

Therefore, when you enjoy high-quality CBD disposable vapes, you can enjoy the potential benefits without worrying about drug tests or feeling high.


How Can CBD Vape Pens Reduce Anxiety?

CBD interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS) - a network of receptors that are responsible for regulating physiological functions such as mood, stress, and sleep.

By interacting with these ECS receptors, CBD could help with managing anxiety and alleviating symptoms of anxiety. When administered acutely, CBD can be used to help treat a range of anxiety-related disorders, including:

  • Panic disorder
  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorders

Here are some ways that vaping CBD could help to reduce and manage anxiety:


Promoting Relaxation & Reducing Stress

One of the key benefits of CBD is that it can help you to relax. Many people who take CBD regularly report calming effects - it can help you to feel more relaxed and at ease.

High stress levels can contribute to high anxiety levels - and CBD can help to lower stress levels by affecting your body’s stress response.

Many of our customers at Orange County CBD report that CBD helps them to feel more relaxed. For example, one customer reported that our CBD vapes’ effects are ‘soothing’, and another reported “I started using the product around a week ago and the difference is HUGE. I feel much more relaxed and don't feel on edge”.


Improving Sleep

Lack of sleep can play a huge part in worsening anxiety symptoms. It is thought that CBD can help to promote better sleep quality.

Studies suggest that CBD alone - or CBD mixed with THC - could help to relieve insomnia. In turn, this can help to reduce anxiety symptoms.

An Orange County CBD customer reported that CBD has ‘been incredibly effective in managing my anxiety and insomnia.’.


Alleviating Physical Symptoms

Anxiety can lead to physical symptoms as well as mental symptoms. Some physical symptoms of anxiety include muscle tension and a rapid heartbeat.

CBD's potential muscle-relaxing properties may help to relieve these physical manifestations of anxiety.


Enhancing Mood

CBD could potentially have mood-stabilising effects. This means that it could potentially reduce feelings of sadness or irritability associated with anxiety.

Although more clinical trials are needed, it is thought that cannabidiol could play a role in the treatment of mood disorders due to its ability to help enhance or regulate mood.


The Science Behind CBD for Anxiety

Now we understand the potential benefits of CBD for anxiety, let’s explore the science behind it.

A study explored the effects of CBD on the underlying brain mechanisms in people with generalised social anxiety disorder by using functional neuroimaging. The study found that CBD does reduce anxiety symptoms by affecting activity in the paralimbic and limbic areas of the brain.

Another study looked at how CBD can impact sleep. The study found that cortisol levels decreased in participants when they were given oral CBD in doses of 300 to 600mg.

A review of preclinical and clinical evidence of CBD for anxiety determined that CBD can have anxiolytic effects. CBD could also have antistress, anti-compulsive, and anxiolytic-like effects, all of which can ease anxiety symptoms.

However, future research is needed to determine how effective CBD can be in treating anxiety disorders and to determine the right doses.


Reusable vs Disposable CBD Vape Pens

If you’re considering incorporating CBD into your routine, there are several options to choose from. If you’re a fan of vaping, you can choose between reusable and disposable CBD vape devices - each of which has its own advantages and potential drawbacks:


Reusable CBD Vape Pens

Environmentally Friendly - Reusable pens can be refilled with CBD vape juice, reducing waste generated from disposable cartridges.

Cost-Effective - Although reusable pens typically have a higher upfront cost, they can be more economical in the long run as you will only need to purchase vape juice.

Customisable - With refillable vapes, you can experiment with different CBD vape juice flavours and concentrations to find what works best for you.


Disposable CBD Vape Pens

Convenient - Disposable vape pens are pre-filled and ready to use, making them convenient for on-the-go consumption.

No Maintenance Required - Unlike reusable pens, disposable pens do not need to be cleaned, offering a hassle-free vaping experience.

Portability - Disposable vape pens are compact and lightweight, making them easy to carry around for quick relief whenever needed.

CBD vape pens, whether refillable or disposable, can be a great way to manage anxiety symptoms without worrying about the psychoactive effects.
