CBD For Mental Health: Part 1

What is Mental Health?

​Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

  • Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry

  • Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse

  • Family history of mental health problems

CBD & Anxiety Disorders 

Generalized Social Anxiety is one of the most common anxiety conditions and it can affect human beings in many aspects of life, including health, productivity and social life. Cannabidiol (CBD) has shown great psychiatric potential, including uses as a anxiolytic-like compound, which means it can decrease anxiety and panic attacks. Administered acutely (“as needed”), it is safe, well-tolerated, and may be beneficial in treating a number of anxiety-related disorders,

Studies On CBD & Anxiety:

  1. Cannabidiol reduces the anxiety induced by simulated public speaking in treatment-naïve social phobia patients.

  2. Cannabidiol regulation of emotion and emotional memory processing: relevance for treating anxiety-related and substance abuse disorders.

  3. The anxiolytic effect of cannabidiol on chronically stressed mice depends on hippocampal neurogenesis: involvement of the endocannabinoid system.


CBD & Depression

Depression is a mental health disorder associated with significant morbidity and mortality, being a major risk factor for suicide, substance abuse, poor outcomes of medical conditions, and impaired functionality. It is characterized by flattening of mood, a loss of emotional expression, as well as thought and movements. CBD exerts its actions by binding to specific receptors in our brain cells which potentiate the actions of a substance called serotonin. Serotonin is often called the happy chemical, because it contributes to wellbeing and hippieness. CBD directly activates the 5-HT1A (hydroxytryptamine), a serotonin receptor, thereby conferring an anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effect.
