We have all experienced anxiety in one way or another. For some people, it’s a passing feeling that will subside once the trigger is no longer there and the moment has passed. However, for many people, this can be a scary battle that continually rages on.
It can be caused by many things and affects people differently. For example, during the coronavirus pandemic, levels of anxiety in the UK have increased due to the many sudden and abrupt changes to our lives from work and finance, to wearing masks, Lockdown restrictions, and reduced social interactions. Here is a useful article from MIND, a charity that deals with mental health.
There are many ways that someone can try and mitigate anxiety, such as going to the doctor to get prescribed medications. Others may use exercise, meditation, herbal or alternative remedies to cope with the issue.
What about CBD oil for anxiety and depression?
As many now may have heard about CBD or seen the products on high street stores, we can see a new trend. Why are people buying CBD, to aid their mental and physical health perhaps?
According to Healthline, there are cells around the human body that have special receptors. CBD is known to interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors which are mostly found within the central nervous system. Once these receptors are charged with CBD, it may alter serotonin signals. However, this is an area that is receiving much more attention in more studies are being conducted to understand it in more detail.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in your mental health. Low levels of serotonin are commonly associated with people who have depression. Sometimes, not having enough serotonin may also cause anxiety. The usual treatments are only available by prescription.
Some people with anxiety have felt that CBD may be able to manage their condition instead of using prescription medication. You should always talk to your doctor before making any changes to your treatment plan.
