In this article, we will discuss how CBD oil helps patients to overcome mental and anxiety disorders. 

CBD oil has received a lot of fame recently, and it can be found in nearly every food store related to health.

The manufacturers of CBD oil often say that it can help patients treat different health problems, including more major ones such as anxiety and depression.

Let’s take a look at the full benefits of CBD oil that can help you treat your disorders.

What Is CBD Oil? How Does It Work?

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, a chemical compound that is derived from marijuana (Cannabis Sativa) plants.

However, this chemical is not associated with the “high” effects of marijuana, as it will not affect your brain.

Another chemical obtained from the same plant that is responsible for making you high is called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and it is highly interlinked with marijuana.

Almost all CBD products are extracted from hemp plants. While the amount of THC compound in hemp plants is relatively low compared to marijuana plants, some products are still obtained from marijuana plants.

How is CBD Oil Beneficial for Patients?

In the past few years, patients have reported that CBD oil proved beneficial to treat the following diseases:

  • Pain in Cancer Treatment
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Chronic Pain

How Does CBD Oil Work? 

The human body consists of many different receptors. CBD oil interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of your body. These two types are abundantly found in the nervous system.

In this way, CBD alters different serotonin signals that travel from our nervous system to other body parts.

How Does CBD Oil Help To Overcome Anxiety?

Researchers are still struggling to discover exactly how CBD helps in treating mental disorders, including anxiety. 

Some research has shown that it appears to affect anxiety disorders by influencing serotonin levels in our brains.

What is Serotonin?

Serotonin is a chemical neurotransmitter that plays a crucial part in regulating your mental health. 

It affects your mood, sleep schedule, other essential body mechanisms such as digestion, and your overall behavior. 

If someone has low serotonin levels in their brain, it may mean they could be battling depression: low serotonin levels are often found in patients who suffer depression.

In some cases, having low levels of serotonin in your central and peripheral systems can also lead to anxiety disorders.

The conventional treatment for low serotonin levels is SSRI, also known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. For this method, sertraline and fluoxetine are the most commonly used antidepressants.

Other people prefer using CBD oil to deal with their anxiety disorders as an alternative to SSRI. 

It is highly recommended that you consult with your doctor first before changing your anxiety treatment plan.

Medicines such as antidepressants and other anxiety-relieving drugs work by balancing the levels of serotonin in the nervous system. That is why research suggests that CBD can be helpful in overcoming anxiety.
