How CBD Can Help If You're Suffering From Depression
Lifestyle - News

Cannadidol, commonly known as CBD, is a chemical compound found in the cannabis plant that may help with mental health issues like anxiety and depression. CBD is often associated with hemp oil, but CBD is extracted from different areas on the plant, so there’s a chance risk of THC inclusion, but not nearly enough to get you high.
Depressed people often have low levels of serotonin, the hormone responsible for happiness, but CBD can affect the 5-H1TA receptors, also known as the serotonin receptor. When CBD was tested on mice, it produced an effect close to the antidepressant imipramine, but it is not yet proven that humans receive the same benefits.
Some skincare brands find ways to add CBD to their products, and a survey says 58% of people take CBD via gummies or food-related substances, 55% use CBD through oils or capsules, and others use it through lotions. It seems that CBD may have a positive impact on mental health issues, and it might benefit you to give it a try.
