CBD For Anxiety and Depression
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the United States. You probably know someone who battles from intense anxiety and or crippling depression. 1 in 13 Americans do, It might even be you. If you struggle with anxiety and or depression, CBD may be the answer for you. It is known to help alleviate the symptoms that many of us who struggle with anxiety & depression face on a daily basis.
Our brains have many receptors to help with feelings and emotions. CBD is known to interact with our CB1 and CB2 receptors that are found in our central and peripheral nervous systems. The way CBD affects receptors in the brain isn’t fully understood yet; however, it has been shown to positively alter serotonin levels.
Serotonin, a neurotransmitter in your brain, is a key contributor to our overall well being. Not having enough serotonin is what may cause anxiety and is often associated with people that have depression. The conventional treatment for lower levels of serotonin is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). SSRIs are only available by a doctor's prescription and have been reported to have negative side effects.
Some people with depression and anxiety may be able to use CBD to help with ongoing symptoms.
