- CBD appears to be a safer alternative to artificial antidepressants
- CBD shows no negative side effects to the human body
- Subjects under influence CBD show lower stress levels, lower pressure and slower heart rate
- CBD it helps neurogenesis - the growth of new brain cells
Anxiety or restlessness Most of us feel uncomfortable and unwanted. In reality, however, it is a very important adaptive mechanism of the human body - it helps us to cope properly with the threats of the outside world facing both us and loved ones. These responsive signals also serve as internal, motivational "kickers" - for example, they make us work more and better, improve our behavior and relationships, pay bills, and so on.
However, if we ignore or ignore these signalswe cannot deal with them responsibly, they can become obstacles instead of helpers. Anxiety in such a situation can lead to the point where it affects our work or interpersonal relationships, which can further lead to depression.

Although antidepressants such as serotonin reuptake inhibitors work for some patients, most of them experience only a slight improvement. In addition, a considerable number of patients who experience these antidepressants suffer from intolerable side effects and some do not help at all. For obvious reasons, the majority of the population is simply worried or worried about taking "pills per head" and finding alternative, healthier options is logical.

In recent years has causedCBDliterally fuss and growing interest among consumers and patients, as well as between healers and scientists. Why? Not only is it CBDable to reset the vast majority negative effects THC, maybe hes strong to antidepressant effects- at least this is evidenced by a number of experimental, clinical and epidemiologica Studies performed on both animals and humans.
Plus, it looks like it CBDit is perfectly tolerated by the human body: it does not cause undesirable side effects and is generally very safe.
CBD could help in case of anxious disorders like:
- Panic disorder
- OCD - Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Social phobia
- PTSD - Posttraumatic Depressive Disorder
- GAD - Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Mild to moderate depression
CBD - How does it work?
The CBD in the brain is working right awaymechanisms that could explain its antidepressant effects. However, before explaining this, it should be noted that all efforts to understand the mechanism of CBD function and brain function have been performed in animal subjects. In short, a mouse is not human, and some of the results of animal studies may not be accurately reflected in human studies from time to time. However, preclinical studies are still very important and move the matter forward.
However, scientists have so far learned the following:
CBD is a 5-HT1A agonist: 5-HT 1A is one of the serotonin receptor subtypes. Finding that CBD is working on it is important because we believe that the serotonin system plays an important role in depression. Serotonin deficiency is one of the possible causes of depression - todays antidepressants function as inhibitors of its absorption, leaving the brain with a greater amount available.
CBD is similar to stimulate serotonin receptor signaling.For example, Spanish scientists deduce from Experiments on animals: "The rapid onset of CBD action as well as the simultaneous antidepressant effect we observe could solve most of the problems we face in todays pharmaceutical antidepressants."
Neurogenesis Hippocampus:The hippocampus region is responsible for a number of very important processes in the human brain. Its by far the most famous role is the function of memory formation and recognition capabilities. Scanned images of the brains of depressed patients show that these people have a hippocampal area less than normal. successful treatment of depression is then associated with the restoration of neuronal cells in the region.
In another of the animal studies, scientistshave shown that CBD in certain cases is able to stimulate neurogenesis, ie the growth of new cells, in this area of the brain. Todays antidepressants, which carry a number of secondary health risks, are capable of doing so.
In addition, heavily scratchedthe cerebral neuroplasticity is also associated with suicidal behavior. Future Understanding CThus, BD and its ability to promote the growth of new brain cells would mean enormous progress in understanding clinical depression and its treatment as such.
How does CBD help with anxiety?
Studies people involved in CBD depression are underway - thanks to the positive resultsířatech. And wonder - the results of the first human studies show the positive effects of CBD on acute stress and anxiety.
For example, Brazilian researchers have done little double blind studyon people suffering from a generalized form of depression or social anxiety. After CBD ingestion, subjects reported a significant decline in anxiety and stress. The scientists then confirmed their reports using brain scans that showed increased blood activity in areas of the brain that are responsible for reducing anxiety.
Next studyresearchers let people with social anxiety make certain public speeches. Significantly lower stress manifestations as well as lower blood pressure and slower heart rate have been observed in those who have taken CBD before the performance.
So the scientists in the following:
"CBD significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive constraints, and discomfort in public speech.
CBD as a beneficial, natural substance
Not only is the functionality of CBD as an antidepressant proven in the trialanimals, increasing volume evidence suggests that this is the case with people. Because a high percentage of the population suffers from certain forms of depression or anxiety, CBD can be a very effective helper and provider of a more comfortable and healthy life for many in the future.
Before it does CBD is recognized as a truly effective remedy for depression and anxiety, with a number of tests waiting for it, such as a randomized large scale study (RCT study). In particular, the long-term effects of using CBD must be explored.
However, it is already in porowith todays pharmaceutical antidepressants CBD seems to be a much safer and perhaps more effective, natural alternative.
