ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION
Are you tired of the mixed feelings about taking cannabidiol (CBD) for your anxiety/depression? Let us help you clear up some of the frustrations. First of all, everybody may not get the relief that they are seeking for when taking CBD, just being honest. But, many people had great experiences with CBD products to relieve their anxiety and depression. You just have to give it try and see. First of all, it is NOT harmful to your health. There is a review from an article called “Neurotherapeutics” that found that CBD may help to reduce anxiety and depression in people with certain related disorders. Such as:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Panic disorder
- Social anxiety disorder
- obsessive-compulsive disorder
How will CBD really help me? CBD as a treatment for both depression and anxiety helps by balancing the … Serotonin Receptors!
Serotonin has an impact on the body’s functions, to include your emotional state and feelings of well-being or happiness. If you have a balanced level of serotonin levels, this is often a key therapy for people with depression and anxiety.
A growing number of people are using cannabidiol (CBD) products to assist in recovering from depression and anxiety. So, if serotonin levels are not directly responsible for healing from depression — then what is?
It turns out that when people suffer from depression, a specific region of the brain can weaken and even shrink! Interesting right? The area responsible for memory, learning and emotion is known as the hippocampus. This part of the brain is also capable of recovering. It can grow new neurons and form new connections — a process called “neurogenesis” or “neural regeneration” — something we once thought only young brains were capable of! But research has since revealed the CBD protects neurons in the hippocampus. Which means the exact brain area that is weakened in depressed people and people with anxiety can be treated organically with CBD products!
So, what about the antidepressants you are taking now? Antidepressants work by stimulating the neural regeneration in the hippocampus, same as CBD but in a natural sense. This could be why antidepressants take weeks to kick in because brain neurons need time to heal, grow and form new connections.
In a nutshell, CBD products can help with neurogenesis which can treat the depression and anxiety that people experience.
