What does research show?
CBD works to quell the signs and symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress by interacting with more than 65 areas within the body.
Research studies conducted show that CBD quells anxiety by positively invigorating neural regeneration as well as neurotransmitter systems, and also regulating the endocannabinoid system that becomes dysregulated through chronic stress.
CBD also binds to serotonin receptors, specifically the 5-HT1A receptor that is responsible for anxiety disorders. In binding to these receptors, CBD is able to calm down anxiety just as well, if not better than most prescription anti-anxiety medications.
CBD may also benefit people with other forms of anxiety, such as social anxiety disorder (SAD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It may help treat anxiety-induced insomnia as well.
In 2011, a study researched CBD’s effects on people with SAD. Participants were given an oral dose of 400 milligrams (mg) of CBD or a placebo. Those who received CBD experienced overall reduced anxiety levels.
