Showing 1–12 of 27 results
If you’re looking to use CBD to relieve anxiety and depression, it’s important to understand that the research around CBD is limited. CBD can have some benefits for depression, especially for dealing with:
- cognitive impairment
- discomfort before public speaking
CBD may also be helpful for conditions potentially related to depression, such as chronic pain.
Experts also believe that CBD’s potential benefits for depression are related to its positive effect on serotonin receptors in the brain.
Depression and anxiety commonly occur together, and people with one are more likely to have the other. CBD does appear to help with both.
One study found that people who took 600 milligrams (mg) of CBD experienced significantly less social anxiety than people who took a placebo. Another study used a smaller dose of 300 mg, which still reduced levels of anxiety.
Anxiety may also have a link to low serotonin, so CBD’s effect on serotonin receptors might partly explain these beneficial effects.
