CBD & Depression 

CBD oil, or hemp derived Cannabidiol, may be a viable alternative to expensive antidepressant medications for the treatment of many forms of depression.

By definition, depression is a condition of general emotional dejection and withdrawal; sadness greater and more prolonged than that warranted by any objective reason. Between 2009 and 2012, 7.6% of Americans aged 12 and over had depression with the highest rates of depression being found in females aged 40-59.

Studies are now showing CBD (Cannabidiol) interacts significantly with the 5-HT1A neuro-receptor. This receptor typically binds to and reuptakes serotonin into the neurons in various parts of the brain reducing amounts of free serotonin in the extracellular space. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter known to be key in the treatment of depression, thus any compound, such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) or Cannabidiol, which increase levels of serotonin are thought to be ideal in the treatment of depression and are thought to have little or no side effects.
