Depression, Anxiety, CBD Oil can help with both
Posted on October 11 2018
Sometimes, life has just got you down in the dumps. For others, anxieties can leave you feeling like there is no other choice but to lock yourself up in the bedroom, never to see the light of day again.
For years, people have turned to the aid of Psychiatrists and the man made pharmaceuticals that they hand out like candy on Halloween to Trick-or-Treaters. There is a new hope and avenue of treatment available however. One that is Natural, non-addictive and legal in almost every single state in the United States.
CBD Oil, made from Industrial Hemp! Containing less than 0.03% THC, there is no euphoric "high" associated with it, and it has afforded countless tens of thousands of people to live normal and healthy lives.
According to AnxietySocialnet.com,
“Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the cannabis compound that has found to have significant benefits for treating people with anxiety. CBD-rich cannabis can be treated for patients seeking anti-inflammatory, anti-pain, anti-anxiety and anti-spasm affects. CBD does not make people feel “stoned” or “high,” and can actually counteract the anxiety-driven tendencies of THC. CBD is one 85 natural compounds found in cannabis. It is a major element, making up 40 percent of the plant’s extract and has a wider medical benefit than THC.
The other popular compound to treat medical conditions is tetrahydrocannibinol, or THC, and can be used to relax muscles, reduce inflammation, reduce seizures stimulate appetite, lower blood pressure and is an anti-depressant.” (Read More)
It's also the season for depression to set in. Some people are plagued with bouts of depression this time of the year. CBD Oil can help with that too.
The NIMH estimates that in the United States, 16 million adults had at least one major depressive episode in 2012.
That's 6.9 percent of the population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. It is a leading cause of disability.
Treatment is severely limited when it comes to pharmaceuticals to combat depression, and even then, only about 1 in 3 people see benefits from the medications after reaching a therapeutic level which can take weeks if not longer. CBD has recently become a front runner in alternative medicine to treat depression, loosely attributed to the euphoric high of the THC and its mood-altering abilities.affects more than 16.1 million American adults, or about 6.7%of the U.S. population age 18 and older in each year. While major depressive disorder can develop at any age, the median age at onset is 32.5 years old according to ADAA.org.
Recent studies however, show that the Cannabidiol (CBD) attributes of cannabis have similar anti-depression effects as the THC element.
CBD is a completely non-psychoactive cannabinoid that works to counteract the effects of THC and other psychoactive compounds. CBD has been researched more and more in recent years and is being considered somewhat of a miracle compound due to its amazing success rate when it comes to treating epileptic seizure conditions of all sorts. Now it appears that CBD is also an extremely effective antidepressant according to many online sources.
CBD Oil works almost instantaneously once taken, within an hour. A potent anti-depressant, CBD Oil could very well replace most conventional therapies when it comes to treating depression.
“Unfortunately, due to the schedule I status of cannabis it has been difficult to do studies on the subject of CBD and depression until recently. However, this could soon change if congress were to pass the CARERS Act, which would successfully remove cannabidiol from the controlled substances act all together, while also rescheduling cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule II – which is something scientists, doctors, and advocates of reform have been hoping to see for years now.
The fact that CBD could be used as an effective treatment for depression – and that it could start helping patients feel better within an hour of starting treatment – is simply incredible in and of itself. There are millions of people suffering from depression in the United States alone – antidepressants can be dangerous, addictive and expensive for life-long treatment; but CBD oil would be a safe and almost instantaneously effective.” (Read More)
