Reduce stress & anxiety with CBD
Anxiety, stress, and depression are the silent killers of our time and according to the WHO, depression is the number one disease in the 21st century. Often, these disorders are treated with heavy medication that includes long lists of possible side effects. Think dizziness, drowsiness, aggression, sleeplessness, headaches, and sexual dysfunction, for example.
Furthermore, medication (such as a benzodiazepine) can be very addictive and harmful to the body with continuous and/or excessive use. However, continuous use of CBD supplements can significantly reduce anxiety and symptoms of PTSD without the dangerous side effects.
How does CBD work for anxiety?
Various research on both animals and humans proves that CBD acts as an antipsychotic and could be of great help within the mental healthcare industry.
Hemp oil appears to be effective in reducing the anxiety associated with public speaking, for example. Whereas other research shows CBD could reduce sleeplessness and anxiety in children with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
This has to do with CBD’s effect on the serotonin receptors in the brain, a neurotransmitter responsible for the regulation of mood and social behaviour. Research shows promising potential for CBD in coping with mental disorders such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
