What is CBD & how can it help with anxiety?
What is CBD?
The cannabis plant is often perceived as a villain in society and has a plethora of negative connotations. However, what is neglected is the fact that this plant doesn’t hold the power of exclusively acting as a psychoactive substance which alters sensory perception and judgement-making processes. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid constituent of Cannabis sativa-L and has NO ‘feeling high’ effect; THC is the chemical which leads to the psychotropic effect of being ‘high’, meanwhile, CBD is one of the friendly & beneficial chemicals found in the Sativa-L cannabis plant that co-exists with THC and several other cannabinoids. Our oils are free of THC and no dosage of our products would get you intoxicated!
Cannabidiol is being heavily praised by scientists because of its therapeutic profile; we already have a lot of experimental & anecdotal evidence highlighting its healing powers pertaining to anxiety, pain, depression, insomnia, seizures and more. Furthermore, institutions continue their research into how CBD interacts with our bodies to achieve the proclaimed effects.
CBD and THC chemical structure
How it can assist in treating anxiety:
Your body has a sophisticated web of cannabinoid receptors ( CB1 & CB2 ) located at various points and they form the Endocannabinoid system ( ECS ); this essentially enables the healthy function of your metabolic processes. The ECS regulates immune function, fear expression & caloric balance; activation of eCB1 & TRPV1 [transient receptor potential vanilloid type 1] receptors can produce effects to negate symptoms experienced within the multiple anxiety disorder domain – chronic stress can impair the ECS signalling, which is counteracted by CBD and other cannabinoids found in our oils. CBD is being used globally as an anxiolytic treatment & succeeding.
By reacting with CB1 and 5-HT1A receptors in a ‘lock and key’ style mechanism, CBD can affect your serotonin levels – the neurotransmitter that dictates the intensity of your feelings pertaining to elation and happiness. Therefore, CBD oils / sprays / creams for anxiety and stress can also present as a viable alternative to the synthetic drugs prescribed to treat depression.
