Cannabidiol Can Help With Public Speaking

Cannabidiol Can Help With Public Speaking


Public Speaking can be a nightmare for a lot of people.  Whether going on stage to give a speech, giving a product demonstration or giving a presentation is never easy.  While for some speaking in public is natural to them and for some it's a constant battle.


Fear of public speaking is real and it is a very common fear.  Fear of speaking is a type of phobia called:  glossophobia.  Why do we feel nervous, stressed or anxious while speaking publicly?  Here's some of the reasons for it:


  1. Fear of being judge

  2. Fear of failure

  3. Lack of confidence

  4. Not wanting to be the center of attention

  5. Lack of preparation

  6. Not having enough knowledge of the topic

  7. Past negative experiences

  8. Physical symptoms: public speaking can cause anxiety, panic and nervousness which lead to physical symptoms like trembling, sweating, increase of heart rate, dry mouth or upset stomach.


For a lot of people just the thought of speaking in public can harbor stress, anxiety and tension.  Chances are high if you are reading this it's because you too have a fear of speaking publicly.  You may even have had a bad experience while giving a speech.  For most of us, we experience some level of anxiety before or while speaking in public.  Fear of public speaking is one of the most common phobias so worry not you have plenty of company here.


Public Speaking can incur symptoms as minor as sweating to trembling to slurring to having rapid heart beats to breathing difficulties and ultimately, inability to speak at all.


Some people may be lucky enough to be put in a position of having to speak publicly while some have to deal with the symptoms from public speaking often.  For those that have this problem they will try to find solutions to keep their anxiety at bay when they have to perform.


One solution that many people are turning to is the all natural hemp derived Cannabidiol or CBD.  CBD is one of the 100s chemical compounds or cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.  You may have heard of another cannabinoid: THC.  Both CBD and THC have many similar health benefits, but the biggest difference is CBD does not contain any psychoactive effect so it will not alter your state of mind, will not intoxicate you or make you feel "high", unlike THC.  THC has psychoactive effects that will make you feel high if used in high amounts.  THC is used medicinally and recreationally, while CBD is used more for its medicinal benefits.  CBD is extracted from the hemp plant for its high quantity of CBD and low THC.  


CBD interacts with the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).  Endocannabinoid system has receptors and neurotransmitters that is spread throughout your body.  It's main function is to regulate mood, sleep, appetite, focus, pain and Inflammation.  Because cannabinoid like CBD is very similar to endocannabinoid system therefore it is believed that with the influence of CBD it can help bring greater balance to your body and mind.  


CBD may have been around for thousands of years, but only very recently have scientists been able to study the full potential of CBD.  With the legalization of cannabis it is opening up more research done on CBD and cannabis in general, we can anticipate more knowledge on the benefits of CBD and cannabis.  But what we already know is CBD can:


  • Reduce stress, anxiety and tension

  • Relief pain

  • Have anti-inflammatory properties

  • Have antioxidants

  • Treat insomnia

  • Promote better sleep

  • Increase focus and motivation

  • Help with epilepsy symptoms

  • Reduce discomfort with cancer treatment

  • Treat PTSD

  • Treat mental disorders


There have been numerous clinical trials and studies to show that CBD has  a positive effect on reducing stress and anxiety. For instance, in a study conducted with 397 participants in New Zealand.  Participants were given medical CBD prescriptions for cancer and non-cancer symptoms, neurological symptoms and mental health symptoms.  All participant groups reported back that they noticed improvements in their overall quality of life  after three weeks of receiving CBD treatments.  People who received CBD for anxiety and depression did experience improvements in their livelihood and were able to perform daily functions properly.  


A study in 2011 focused on how CBD oil can impact public speaking.  Anxious participants were either given CBD oil or placebo before delivering a presentation.  Their speeches vere recorded and analyzed.  Their anxiety levels were measure before, during and after the presentations.  Participants who were given CBD before speaking showed significant reduction in physical and psychological symptoms.  Their cognitive performance was enhanced as well.  


Fear of public speaking is a form of social anxiety or also known as social phobia.  This is a common mental health condition where someone has a persistent fear of social situations and may result in experiencing excessive self-consciousness resulting in difficulty in performing duties properly in public.  


As mentioned earlier, CBD has anxiety-reducing properties and when CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system it helps in regulating psychosocial functions like:  mood, stress processing and anxiety.
