Although you may not have heard of the term “globus hystericus,” there’s a good chance you’ve experienced this sensation a few times in your life. In fact, recent statistics suggest about 46 percent of the general population feel this uncomfortable “lump in the throat” symptom at some point. 

The good news is that most globus hystericus cases aren’t life-threatening. True, there are cases where globus hystericus could signal a severe issue, so it’s always important to check with your doctor first. However, if you’re not experiencing excruciating pain and your physician doesn’t notice any significant structural issues, chances are your globus hystericus is related to anxiety. 

While it’s a relief to know your throat tension can’t kill you, it can be difficult for patients to shake off this sensation. However, there’s emerging evidence that CBD oil’s anti-anxiety effects might help people struggling with globus hystericus. 

How Could Tribe CBD Oil Get Rid Of Globus Hystericus? 

To be honest, there aren’t any clinical trials focusing on CBD’s use for globus hystericus. However, since globus hystericus is intertwined with stress, it’s likely CBD oil’s effect on stress should have a positive impact on this sensation.

As we’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, CBD oil shows tremendous potential as an anti-anxiety aid. Plenty of randomized studies show CBD works better on social anxiety disorder (SAD) than placebos. Anecdotally, many people who get a “lump in the throat” before a public speech claim CBD oil helps calm their nerves. 

Significantly, many reports suggest CBD may help people who struggle with jaw clenching. Understandably, jaw tension can radiate to muscles in our neck. So, if CBD could help people naturally give their jaw a breather, it may take some of the stress off their throat.

How Should People Take CBD For Globus Hystericus? 

Before thinking about using Tribe CBD oil for globus hystericus, you must visit your doctor for a physical exam. As mentioned above, globus hystericus is usually a symptom of anxiety. However, it’s best to ensure this symptom isn’t related to any underlying condition.

Once you know you have stress-induced globus hystericus, we recommend starting with the lowest recommended dose of Tribe CBD oil. For maximum absorption, you should place your CBD oil under your tongue and hold it for about 30 seconds before swallowing. You should also take CBD oil with a high-fat food like salmon or avocados to boost its absorption rate. 

Be sure to write down your daily CBD dose in a journal and note any symptom improvements. If you’re not feeling anything at the lowest CBD dose, keep increasing by about 10 mg of CBD per day till you feel the desired effects. 

Please remember that CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, so you shouldn’t expect to feel “high” after you use it. It may take a week for your body’s endocannabinoid system to acclimate to CBD oil. Please be patient with your CBD dosage before deciding whether this supplement works for your stress.
