One of the most popular uses of CBD oil is for anxiety. Perhaps, unfortunately, because so many people experience some level of anxiety. There is, however, a big difference between having moments of anxiety and living with debilitating daily anxiety. Many people that use CBD oil for chronic anxiety have experienced a complete reset in their daily lives. How is that possible?
When you have a basic understanding of how CBD works in the physical and emotional body, the why it works will be clear.
First of all one of the medicinal properties of cannabidiol, or CBD is that it is an anti-anxiety/anti-depressant compound. What that means is that, according to studies, CBD exerts 5-HT1A cell receptor actions that are located in diverse areas of the brain. This exertion provides a strong range of effects on the Serotonin System that positively impacts your mood, behavior and motivation. This 5-HT1A-receptor activity also acts upon the Dopamine System, which regulates aspects of behavior and cognition. In addition, in the Opioid System, CBD acts as a negative allosteric modulator on your opioid receptors to reduce pain and the effects of chronic inflammation. This broad range of actions of CBD is what provides the relief for the core symptoms of anxiety.
Chronic anxiety can be expressed in various ways and in various degrees. The emotional feelings of anxiety, when experienced consistently over time, can also take a toll on the physical body. Then, if you introduce pharmaceutical medications that may have debilitating side effects, you may become caught in a web of increased despair instead of relief. With natural, non-toxic, non-psychoactive CBD you can safely and effectively treat the symptoms of CBD.
