Ian's Depression and CBD Blog Post

Depression affects a large portion of people, so much so that many of us have experienced it or know someone who has. Depression is the largest segment of the mentally and physically disabled population and affects 1 in 20 people worldwide. Suffering from depression can present a major challenge in an individual’s day to day life. The science of mental health is ever expanding and there is promising new research that suggests how CBD could potentially help.

Living with Depression

Depression is a complicated illness and research suggests it is caused by different imbalances of the brain’s natural chemical responses. A large array of chemicals, such as Serotonin and Dopamine, can cause mood fluctuations if not balanced correctly. Since the imbalances don’t always match from person to person, therapies and their effectiveness can vary.

Research suggests that Cannabidiol (CBD) may potentially have an antidepressant like effect. A recent study examined mice that had been bred with a rodent version of depression. When the researchers added CBD along with an SSRI antidepressant (such as Fluoxetine) they found the symptoms of depression to be less severe, allowing better performance than the antidepressant alone. Another study revealed that CBD has an extremely rapid antidepressant effect, acting almost immediately upon administration. The study showed that CBD enhanced the levels of serotonin and glutamate in short time, allowing for a change in mood almost instantly.

Taking CBD may potentially help the body to balance the endocannabinoid system and there are a host of products that may be helpful. Always consult with your Doctor when considering using any supplements.

Although depression is prevalent in the world today, the potential for treatment is ever expanding. As research into the potential benefits of CBD broadens, the connection to depression may potentially become more clear, hopefully leading to an improved life for millions of individuals.
