Can CBD help with Depression?

In these times, mental health diseases like anxiety and depression are at an all-time high. According to studies, mental health disorders affect 15 million people in the US every year. That’s almost 6% of the population!

What Is CBD?

CBD is extracted from cannabis oil and is meant to relax your mind and body. Most people confuse CBD with marijuana, but unlike marijuana, CBD does not give you a high.

Depression and Its Current Medication

Depression can be present in people of all ages. It is most common in people from ages 15 to 45. It also increases in women after they hit menopause. It is a mental disorder and can affect anyone but can also

occur after something tragic happens in your life. Maybe the loss of a loved one, heartbreak, or even low self-esteem.

The most common cure for depression is antidepressants. They work by altering the balance of chemicals in an individual’s brain, which can cause several extreme side effects. These side effects include:

  •   Uneasiness
  • Dry mouth
  • No or decreased sexual desire
  • Increase in suicidal tendencies

You might feel these side effects even more, especially after moving to a new antidepressant. Make sure to visit your doctor today if you are experiencing any of these side effects!

CBD – Can It help?

Since depression is essentially an imbalance of brain chemicals, researchers believe CBD can help with that. CBD can be used to regulate chemicals in the brain. The cannabinoids from CBD can help to regulate the chemical balance in the brain that has been put out of balance due to whatever is causing the mental illness. This can also decrease anxiety in an individual. CBD helps the body and the brain to relax. It reduces over thinking and helps you sleep better at night. These factors might not directly affect depression but definitely do play a part in an individual’s mental health.

People who suffer from depression usually have a lack of Serotonin and Dopamine in their brain. CBD can be used as an alternative to antidepressants in this case since the cannabinoids from CBD can influence dopamine receptors in the brain. Therefore, CBD can easily be used as an alternative to antidepressants.

How to Use CBD

CBD is available in many different forms. CBD is even infused with water these days. You can also use CBD by inhaling it through vaping. In addition to this, CBD can also be consumed as edibles. It is very common to put CBD in cookies, brownies and even gummy bears! CBD can also be consumed as capsules, just like regular antidepressants. Most people prefer it this way since it’s convenient and affects the brain and the body immediately.

Side Effects of CBD

CBD might have several side effects for people suffering from depression, so make sure to refer to your doctor before taking any heavy doses. These side effects will surely lessen in a couple of weeks. Side effects may include:


  • Low blood pressure
  • Weakness
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Restlessness

CBD is known to alleviate pain but also has several side effects, so use CBD at your own risk.
