CBD has been found to be effective in the treatment of depression and has been linked to the improvement of the symptoms.

The cannabinoids produced in our bodies (endocannabinoids) help to regulate several functions of the body such as mood, pain sensation, sleep, and appetite. These substances exert their actions by binding to specific points of brain cells called the receptors through which they potentiate the actions of a substance called serotonin which acts to improve mood and reduce stress levels. Serotonin also acts by binding to its receptors in brain cells. When these chemical substances bind to their respective receptors, they trigger a series of events within each brain cell stimulating processes that improve mood and stress control.

CBD has been found to help improve depressive symptoms by modulating the actions of the endocannabinoids and also potentiating the effects of serotonin by enhancing the activity of the receptors unto which serotonin binds.

Research shows that CBD oil causes receptor 5-HT1A, which releases serotonin, to fire more effectively. This increases serotonin production and stabilizes its presence in the body. Serotonin is a chemical in the brain that impacts various parts of our body, overall improving mood and wellbeing!
