CBD for Anxiety
Almost 25% of Americans struggle with anxiety in their lifetime and our government has provided us with some very serious drugs on the market to combat such a common problem.
ATLRx recommends trying CBD to treat anxiety as an effective natural alternative and here is why:
Even though are genetics can play a major role in this, one of the most common causes of Anxiety is Stress!! From working multiple jobs, to taking care of the kids, to trying pay the bills, stressful life situations like this are commonly causing anxiety is many people’s daily lives.
Studies currently suggest that CBD counters anxiety by stimulating neurotransmitter systems and neural regeneration.
Here is what was found:
- Serotonin: Most people associate serotonin with happiness. However, the role of this neurotransmitter is very complex, and its effects depend on where it is and what it binds to. Serotonin has at least 13 different receptors, but CBD specifically binds to 5-HT1A. The 5-HT1A receptor is thought to have the strongest role in anxiety disorders which is why the anti-anxiety drug buspirone also binds to this particular receptor. This explains the anti-anxiety effects of CBD on rats exposed to stressful situations
- Endocannabinoids: Your body naturally produces cannabinoids, which are used throughout your body and brain in the ECS. The ECS can lose balance with stress., but CBD could help restore balance to the ECS by increasing your body’s production of endocannabinoids.
- Neural regeneration:Chronic stress can damage neurons but certain areas of the brain are still capable of regeneration. CBD can boost the process of forming new neurons, make new connections, and growing our brains. CBD can even help to counterbalance the brain damage caused by chronic stress.Numerous studies have proved that CBD encourages neural regeneration by relieving chronic stress within mice.
