Depression and anxiety disorders are common mental illnesses that can have a lasting impact on a person’s health, social life, ability to work and general well-being.
Your doctor may prescribe medication to treat or treat your depression. Many of these medications have serious side effects, such as mood swings, insomnia, and sexual dysfunction.
CBD has promised to treat depression and anxiety in early studies and may cause fewer side effects in some people.
2014 research may explain why CBD can be helpful in treating depression. They point out that in most studies, CBD has a positive effect on the brain’s serotonin receptor.
Serotonin affects many functions of the body, including a person’s emotional state as well as well-being or happiness. Balancing serotonin levels is often a key therapy for people with depression.
The compound has a clear anti-stress effect after short or long-term use. In some tests, CBD acted as an antidepressant.
The researchers also found that the compound functioned without direct activation of brain endocannabinoid receptors, which may indicate that CBD poses a lower risk of dependence or dependence.
