Cannabidiol also referred to as CBD, is a natural component that is found in the Cannabis plant. Research and medical experiments have shown a link between the use of Cannabidiol, and the treatment of depression.
Similarly, Cannabidiol is also known to reduce inflammation in the body. However, many people wonder whether it is a safe substance to be used.
The industrial production of cannabidiol includes its extraction from the cannabis plant followed by separation from other cannabinoids.
Let us talk about the use of CBD for depression treatment
Since the stigmas associated witch the cannabis plant and its extracts are slowly dying away, more research into cannabinoids and its effects are being funded. A number of these researchers have found out that CBD can indeed enhance the treatment process for depression.
While CBD itself will not cure depression altogether, it can improve a number of symptoms.
The cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body regulates a number of functions that include sleep, appetite, pain, and mood. This action is exerted by binding to a number of points present in the brain cells known as receptors. In turn, the actions of serotonin are potentiated. Serotonin is primarily known to improve the stress levels and overall mood.
Hence, the use of CBD lifts the overall mood of people suffering from depression which allows them to cope up with their condition in a better way. At the same time, this allows the victims of depression to carry out regular tasks without any psychological hindrances.
Now, let us move on to the use of CBD for inflammation reduction.
Inflammation actually happens to be a very important process of the human body and is a fundamental part of the innate immune response of the body. However, if the inflammation lasts really long or simply increases beyond a specific set point, it may cause a number of chronic diseases that include arthritis and cancer.
Inflammation itself is not a bad thing and may settle over time as soon as the underlying cause has been taken care of. However, chronic inflammation can result in nasty side-effects.
We may define chronic inflammation as inflammation that stays for a very long period of time (months or even years). This type of inflammation is usually caused due to an overactive immune system, viruses, or pathogens.
This is where CBD plays a very therapeutic role. It has been observed that CBD oil helps in mediating the body’s immune response that is associated with a range of autoimmune diseases.
At the same time, CBD oil may also reduce the pain caused by chronic inflammation via activation of the glycine receptors.
Now, CBD oil comes in a range of different forms that include syrups, capsules, concentrates, and tinctures. As far as the dosage goes, it is always recommended to start out small, say 5-10 mg a day. This is something that you should consult a doctor for.
All in all, CBD seems to have a range of positive effects on the human body. Reduction of the symptoms of inflammation and depression are just two of these many beneficial effects.
