Can CBD Relieve Anxiety & Depression?

Can CBD Relieve  Anxiety & Depression?The intriguing anatomy and process of our brains help us to better understand the production of fear, anxiety, worry and the decision to take flight or to fight. Although medical professionals are still discovering new reasons for depression and anxiety to this day, we know that a tiny portion in the brain called the amygdala, stores emotional and threatening thoughts, along with memories from our early childhood to present day.

There are neurotransmitters throughout the entire body that send signals to the brain, alerting you instantaneously of real or perceived danger. Stress is made up of both psychological and physical symptoms. The psychological part creates the nervousness, fear and worry, while the physical aspect produces sweating, rapid heart palpitations, a rise in blood pressure, nausea and shortness of breath.

When anxiety disorders are left untreated or undertreated, several areas of the brain like the hippocampus (regulates emotions) and the prefrontal cortex (decision making, planning abilities) shrink causing long-term damage.

The standard care is behavioral therapy, counseling, and anti-anxiety medications. The problem is treatment is often just not enough due to the brain’s complexities, and anti-anxiety meds are addictive and very often fail to keep working for many patients.

What’s the alternative?
Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors, so our bodies naturally react to cannabis (industrial hemp). The structure of cannabis interacts directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with industrial hemp, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body. The endocannabinoid cells have tiny receptors that take in chemicals and produce responses. This natural system in our bodies regulates things like mood, sleeping, immunity, pleasure, memory and much more.

CBD oil is known to show beneficial results for seizures, neurodegenerative disorders, cancer, autoimmune diseases and other chronic ailments. What is CBD oil? Well, most of us have heard about the health advantages of Hemp or Marijuana, but the major difference with CBD is that it has none of the psychoactive factors or intoxicating effects of cannabis. The THC level (the chemical that makes one high) is removed through an extraction process. In most cases CBD oil is primarily free of the mood-altering components, this is especially the case with the CBD oil used in Your CBD Stores’ organic products.
