CBD for Anxiety & Stress Relief

many people have turned to natural methods to find some form of stress relief. CBD, in particular, has risen in popularity due to claims that it can help significantly reduce stress levels.

Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in your mood and feelings of happiness. It has several receptors it “attaches” to throughout your nervous system, and CBD has also shown an ability to bind to those same receptors. Specifically, CBD binds to 5-HT1A, which is also the receptor thought to have the greatest link to various anxiety disorders (and we know how stress and feelings of anxiety go hand-in-hand). The popular anti-anxiety drug Buspirone also binds to the same receptor, highlighting how CBD may be working in a similar fashion to relieve feelings of anxiety.

How CBD helps Reduce Stress & Anxiety

Many studies have been done on the effects of CBD on anxiety disorders. Anxiety, depression, and chronic stress are strongly linked and often occur together, making studies on anxiety disorders worth a look if we’re dealing with stress.

One found that pretreatment with CBD had significantly reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment, and discomfort when put through the stress of public speaking.
