Cannabidiol (CBD) for Chronic Facial Blushing

Many people who experience chronic facial blushing often have a form of anxiety. Although the anxiety may be minor, the blushing experience may have a much greater effect on an individual due to the physical and mental pain and annoyance of a blushing episode

I have researched cannabidiol, a cannabinoid found in cannabis, for the alleviation of anxiety in patients. Although cannabis alone may certainly intensify anxiety and blushing episodes, cannabidiol may do the exact opposite.

Perhaps the most prone an individual is to a blushing episode is during a public speaking event. Cannabidiol was tested on individuals during a study where individuals anxiety levels were measured while they were asked to participate in a public speaking event. Individuals who were given cannabidiol had significant decreases in their anxiety levels.

On the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health website the study reports that “The placebo group presented higher anxiety, cognitive impairment, discomfort, and alert levels when compared with the control group as assessed with the VAMS. The SSPS-N scores evidenced significant increases during the testing of placebo group that was almost abolished in the CBD group.”

Has anyone experienced using cannabidiol in a large enough dose to treat their chronic blushing? Obtaining the right quantity of CBD may be difficult for many because of the cannabis laws but several states do offer medical cannabis. I would be very interested on how CBD would compare to other medications to treat blushing due to anxiety like propranolol and benzodiazepines.

CBD for blushing?

Hi everyone! I’ve never posted in this thread, but I’ve been reading and following for the past year. Just a little background, I’ve struggled with extreme chest and neck blushing all of my teenage and adult life basically (so I relate to all of you and understand). I’ve tried everything under the sun (beta blockers, SSRI’s, etc). and some worked for a while – until one day it didn’t and then I would need to find another alternative. I really want to get off of the medication (currently on metoprolol) because it feels like a short term solution for a long term struggle. Recently, I’ve started taking CBD gummies (no THC) daily and have found such great results. Has anyone else tried CBD for this? I find that I blush less extremely + if I do blush, it disappears much quicker than when I was taking medication. I’ve only been taking them for about a month, but would love to chat with anyone that has also found similar results with CBD & their thoughts on it 🙂

I’m also interested. I blush like you and have heard of similar results. If you want to talk to other people about it, you could join the facebook group “iBlush”. That’s where a lot of people share their experiences. Which brand do you take for the chest and neck blushing? I might try them too
