Anxiety can be a debilitating condition that leaves people avoiding certain situations and that issues can spiral out of control and lead to more problems. Despite this, there could be another solution that could help you to manage anxiety and give you back your life. This solution could be CBD and with growing research, it’s highly likely that you could benefit from all that it has to offer.
CBD and Anxiety
Throughout the body, Cannabidiol has more than 65 targets and that means that CBD has the potential to offer significant benefits when it comes to helping with anxiety. Studies could indicate that CBD manages anxiety through stimulating neurotransmitter systems and neural regeneration and this is because of the following:
Serotonin - Many people link serotonin with happiness but there is more to this neurotransmitter than you might realise. It is a complex neurotransmitter and that is dependent on where it is and where it binds to. While many people might think that more serotonin is better, that is not always the case as dysfunction can occur from both low and high serotonin levels.
Serotonin has a minimum of 14 different receptors but it has been found that CBD has the ability to bind to 5-HT1A and that means that it can play an important role in anxiety disorders.
Endocannabinoids - Your body will naturally produce cannabinoids and these are then used throughout our bodies and within our brains. When our bodies experience stressful situations or even chronic stress, it can cause dysfunction. However, CBD does have the potential to help restore some level of normality when it comes to the endocannabinoid system as this can prevent the CB1 receptors from being overstimulated. In turn, it will help to bolster the production of endocannabinoids.
Experiments have been carried out on rodents and this has shown that CBD could help to provide some element of relief for anxious behaviours through working on the endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in processing and forgetting our fears.
Neural Regeneration - Chronic stress can cause significant damage to neurons and it can even cause the brain to shrink although some areas of the brain can be regenerated. Throughout our lives, we continue to create and form new neurons and that helps us to form new connections and enable our brains to grow. It is believed that CBD can help to aid the process and even boost it. This means that CBD could have the potential to create a counterbalance within the brain to help overcome the damage caused by chronic stress. Studies have been carried out that could indicate that CBD helps to enhance neural regeneration, especially in the hippocampus. In fact, many of the studies involved using CBD to reduce anxiety in chronically stressed mice and it is believed that CBD played a role in helping to stimulate the growth of new neurons.
So, if you suffer from anxiety and are looking for a healthy and natural way of overcoming the problems you face, it could be time to try CBD.
