Say Goodbye to Stress

How Does CBD Help With Anxiety?

Millions of Americans struggle with anxiety every year. The endocannabinoid system within the human body is responsible for regulating functions like blood pressure, hormonal balance, sleep cycles, and much more. The endocannabinoid system is defined as a biological system that contains neurotransmitters, called endocannabinoids, that bind to cannabinoid receptors found within the central and peripheral nervous systems. Similar to the human body, cannabis plants also contain cannabinoids. CBD is one of the many cannabinoids found within cannabis plants and can help balance some of these bodily functions when consumed daily.

How Does CBD Work?

Most cannabinoids found within cannabis plants bind to the cannabinoid receptors within the body. However, CBD does not. Instead, CBD essentially blocks the breakdown of our body's endocannabinoids, so that our bodies can utilize more of what is naturally produced. CBD can also affect some non cannabinoid receptors such as the serotonin receptor 5hT, which is thought to be linked to anxiety relief. CBD also binds directly with a receptor responsible for pain/inflammation control and can prevent overstimulation of THC. Overall, the benefits of CBD are undeniable.

Is CBD Safe?

Hemp-derived CBD products (containing less than 3.% THC) offer many of the benefits of cannabis, without the psychoactive effects commonly linked with marijuana.
