CBD FOR ANXIETY & DEPRESSION
A common question that comes to mind of CBD users is - can CBD help with feelings of anxiety or depression? The answer is yes.
CBD affects G protein couple receptors (GPCRs) in the central nervous system that manage pain, as well as glycine receptors that regulate Serotonin (regulates anxiety, happiness & mood). The way that these receptors are affected by the intake of CBD gives some people a calming effect.
CBD also works to regulate Serotonin and Dopamine production (hormones promoting positive feelings) and can aid in the form of relaxing tight and stiff muscles, promote restorative sleep, and bring cortisol levels in the blood. Cortisol is known as the 'stress hormone'.
