CBD is a natural, therapeutic compound that promotes everyday mental health, and wellness. CBD helps to address the underlying causes of many physical and mental health issues and allows the body to get back to a healthy state of balance.
CBD and your Mind
CBD is one of many naturally occurring endocannabinoids found in all cannabis plants. The human body naturally produces its own cannabinoids (endocannabinoids), of which the cannabinoids in cannabis (CBD, THC) bind. Unlike THC, CBD does not get you "high" and has different, more indirect interaction on the body. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, and the immune system. The endocannabinoid system helps regulate mood, promoting a calming sense of wellbeing. CBD has the unique ability to directly interact with other cell receptors, including serotonin and dopamine receptors. When consumed, CBD interacts with these receptors which can result in the release of serotonin and dopamine throughout the body. This can elevate your mood such that before you were too stressed or anxious to work, and after consuming CBD you feel productive and able to focus on your priorities.
From Mental Illness to Mental Wellness
CBD is not a replacement for seeing a therapist or a doctor, and it does not replace prescription medicine - but it can compliment them. CBD is known for elevating your mood; testimonials of the form "when using CBD my mind is elevated to the point that I am calm and can focus," are very common. Depression-like symptoms of feeling sad, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, changes in appetite, trouble sleeping, loss of energy, feeling worthless, and difficulty thinking, concentrating, or making decisions trouble most people, but in extreme, clinical cases, it can debilitate you. CBD acts on serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters and usage of CBD products can help regulate imbalanced levels of these neurotransmitters, which can promote mental wellbeing. Even if you are normal, everyone is stressed out from time to time and CBD also aids with these effects, allowing you to have a healthy mind. Everyone can benefit from CBD as everyone can benefit from exercise and vitamins. CBD usage might soon be part of an accepted "healthy lifestyle." After all, CBD is non-psychoactive, so despite being similar to THC, the compound in cannabis that makes you high, you achieve the benefits of cannabinoids like CBD, without the undesirable side effects of THC.
While there are many testimonials and independent studies that give those suffering from mental disorders, CBD is not an alternative to prescription medication, it is a natural supplement. Always consult the advice of a medical professional
